The Barrier Block Conspiracy makes their way backstage. "Sirens" can still be heard playing over the arena loudspeaker.
"This is Terry Kohl, reporting --"
Massey snatches the microphone from Kohl. West and Seeiso step between them and bully Kohl out of the way.
The camera focuses solely on Massey.
"Bravo. You had us all fooled, tyke! Me, the Conspiracy, and everyone watching at home. When that music hit, we all expected Aaron Black to emerge from the back. The fans were awaiting his triumphant return to GCW. I was just waiting for him to get in the ring so we could break his other hand!"
West breaks back into the frame. He thrusts his sledgehammer towards the camera, the head stopping just inches from the lens.
"Lady Sasha is sorely disappointed. Her judgment must be carried out!"
Massey clutches the head of the sledgehammer, guiding it down.
"Imagine my surprise when we didn't get Aaron Black, but you, Drew Murdock. And rather than coming down the ramp and meeting us face to face, you came in through the crowd, behind our backs, and pulled John Styles from the ring. It was cowardly. Underhanded. It was --"
Massey nudges West out the camera's view. He spits on the ground.
"-- exactly what I would have done in your position. I can't believe I'm saying this, but, good show, mate! But don't pat yourself on the back just yet. Because I've got to ask the question - was this about standing by your brothers-in-arms and standing up to the Conspiracy, or were you simply trying to recapture a bit of the shine that you've lost over the last few weeks?"
Massey produces a cigar from off-camera. He lets the question linger while he lights up.
"No use in denying it. Until just now, the world had stopped talking about Drew Murdock. Everyone's been fawning over Aaron Black and Jensen since we put them out of action. Your pal, John Styles, was the one who Nigel chose to face me in tonight's main event. Meanwhile, you were stuck in a match that no one cared about. You can't tell me that you weren't at least a wee bit jealous of all that. And I think that's why you came out here tonight. So the world would be abuzz about Drew Murdock and his valiant, one-man stand against the Barrier Block Conspiracy."
Kohl tries to step back into the interview but Seeiso drags him away.
"You got what you wanted, Drew. Nigel has made it official for next week, and everyone's talking about it. 'Nobby no-mates' versus the baddest man in Brixton. It's got an odd sort of charm to it, don't you think?"
Massey points his cigar at the camera.
"I'm putting 'phase two' on hold, just for you! Whether your actions tonight were motivated by valor or ego, the outcome is going to be the same. When you step up, I'm going to punch your ticket for a one-way trip to South West Nine. As the train leaves the station, and you see Black and Jensen and Styles all waving goodbye in the distance, you'll wish that one of them, any of them, had shared a bit of knowledge with you. Something they've all picked up over the last few weeks. You'll wish they had warned you not to mess with that no-good, 'Low Down' Barton Massey!"

After what feels like an eternity, the Conspiracy emerges from Customs, flanked by Alfie and Lola.
"Why don't you take 'Cupcake' and go fetch the rental, eh, big guy?"
Alfie and Lola split from the group as the others head towards baggage claim.
"What is it now, noble prince?"
"You're certainly within your rights to assign tasks to Alfie - but to my servant as well?"
"If it bothers you so much, 'your highness', maybe next time I'll ask you to get the car. And maybe that car will have a surprise in the trunk. A hard-to-miss, incriminating surprise, courtesy of our mutual friend Harvey."
"I thought so."
Massey, Seeiso, and West take a seat while they wait for their baggage.
"What happens now?"
"What do you mean, West?"
"'Phase two'. We never got started last week, and you even said yourself that you're putting it on hold to deal with Murdock."
"Temporary delay, mate. It's coming soon. I'm just having a bit of fun with Murdock right now. You know, two weeks ago, we became the first ones to defeat the Axis of Anarchy. There's no 'unringing' that bell. Murdock no longer has a perfect record in GCW. He's just a mere mortal, made of flesh and blood, like the rest of us."
"So - what now?"
"Now we see what Murdock is made of. Is he going to roll over and die like the rest of the Anarchy Club, or is he going to rise up and give me the fight of my life? I'm hoping for the latter. He's from Sheffield, after all - so if nothing else, he should be too stubborn to quit. You can always tell a Yorkshire man, but you can't tell him much!"
The meaning of that last bit is lost on the Canadian and the Lesothian as three men watch the baggage carousel rotate endlessly.
"This is taking entirely too long. Where is our luggage, and where are Lola and Alfie?"
October 19th, 7:00 PM EST Air Canada Centre - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
"This is Terry Kohl, along with Beast Jackson, coming to you live from the Air Canada Centre! Welcome to the GCW Vindication Pre-Show panel, with tonight's guest, 'Low Down' Barton Massey."
"Your International Champion, Terry-boy."
"So, say it."
"Our guest tonight, your International Champion, 'Low Down' Barton Massey."
"Let's get right to it, kid. Tonight's main event is one of the biggest in Vindication history. The two-time, reigning International Champion squaring off against one half of the reigning Tag Team Champions and the number-one contender to the World Heavyweight Championship. I have to ask you - why is Barton Massey going to emerge victorious?"
"Isn't it clear, Beast? My Conspiracy shattered the hand that keeps the Blacklist, closed the book on Jensen, and exhausted the winning ways of the 'Renewed' John Styles! Tonight, 'The Iconoclast' is going to discover that Barton Massey and the Barrier Block Conspiracy are unbreakable, bob's your uncle."
"That's some tough talk. You came away with the win last time you and Murdock were in the same match, but it's one-on-one tonight. Can you get the job done on your own?"
"Beast. Beast, Beast, Beast. Where do I even start with that? You want to talk about getting the job done, let's rewind a bit. I told everyone that I'd get my International Championship back from Jensen, and I did. I've gone on to prove that he's an unworthy contender, and while we're on the subject, let me say this - I suggest, strongly, that Jensen forfeit his contendership so we can find a more deserving challenger and keep the championship picture moving."
"I think quite a few people would disagree with your assessment --"
"I'm not finished, Terry-boy! John Styles looked nearly unstoppable a month ago, and now he's lost two straight to ol' 'Low Down'. I got the job done. And honestly, his prospects this week don't look much better. Maybe I broke his spirit the way we broke Aaron Black's hand?"
"You're real proud of that, aren't you?"
"Aaron Black brought it upon himself! If he hadn't dragged a non-competitor into the ring, the match would have gone to it's natural conclusion and he wouldn't have incurred the wrath of the Barrier Block Conspiracy. Now he's out indefinitely and his title shot has vanished into thin air. He ought to think about calling it quits."
"I think we get the picture, kid."
"I don't think you do. I told everyone this summer that I would make my way to the top of the card, and I did it. Nigel tried to put the screws to me but I - got - the - job - done. Every time I've gotten knocked down, I've gotten up and hit back harder! You asked if I could get the job done, why I'd be victorious? Drew Murdock has never faced adversity until now. I've shown how I handle it - how does he?"
"I'm hearing a lot of talk about what you've done - but what are you going to do tonight?"
"I'm going to do what I always do. I'm going to fight, and scrap, and claw. No wasted effort. Every shot is going to mean something. Murdock's going to do what he always does. Lots of flash and high-risk. Just a bunch of shiny fluff in an effort to pander to the morons out there! But I'm not going to be dazzled or intimidated like the others. A thumb to the eye and a kick in the goolies is just as good as a double rotation flip from the top rope. It gets the job done."
