We've done one of these before but if you don't know the drill, here it is.
This is a press conference, you are all invited to take part in said press conference to talk about Violent Conduct VI, but stick to the guidelines.
1, You can answer any question about your character, or SCW, but give a nod to the show with a question.
2, You can use all your characters if you want at different times.
3, Do not keep popping in and out answering questions or replying to something else cause you've seen something or thought of something else. 1 post per character, that's it.
4, These can be as long or short as you want.
5, This is set in a timeline, regardless when you post so lets say this all happens on Monday, but you can post all week.
6, This is open to SCW, SCU and GRIME.
Monday morning, Hot Stuff Mark Ward sits in front of social distanced reporters, the events of Violent Conduct VI still fresh in people's minds.
HS: Thank you all for coming, last night was a wild night, a big night in SCW history for a show that lived up to it's name. We saw some insane stuff, so time to open the floor to you guys to talk about it all.
Reporter: Great show, Mark. How's everyone feeling today?
HS: As you'd expect, people put their heart, souls and body in to last night's show, people are beat up pretty badly. You've heard the news about Miles Kasey being out for a while with an injury. Miles put on a hell of a show last night, he reminded me of me years ago, but we're looking at at least a month before we see Miles again. Amber and Roxi went to hell and back, both of them are probably feeling it today. Mac Bane after getting punched in the sack is probably sitting around today with a lot of ice.
Reporter: Do you think you pushed things too far?
HS: No, we coulda gone further. I mean Christian's choice was a bit of an envelope pusher but it's the nature of our game, it's the spirit of our roster. They wanted to live up to the show name, they wanted to go all out for this one. No one did anything they wasn't comfortable with. In fact, they could have stepped away at any time, but this is SCU, this is GRIME, this is SCW, our rosters don't run from challenges, they run towards them and I'm proud of each and every one of them tonight.
Reporter: Did it make a difference that the fans were back for a show like this?
HS: A million percent. I mean everyone out there needed the reaction from the crowd. They needed them to see what they was doing and respond and they played their part in making this a success.
Reporter: What was behind the thinking of SCW's first cinematic style match?
HS: I think someone just aimed high and try to hit it. It was something new, and this was the perfect show and combination to do it. I've already had people in the back ask for something like that so a trend may have been started, but it was unique and done well I think.
Reporter: We know J2H is now back to build up to face Teddy Warren, but we also saw Despayre, Melody Grace and Amy Jo Smyth on the show. Will we see them in SCW matches soon?
HS: I doubt it, Melody and Despayre are more away from the ring and from what I gather, Amy Jo likes beating up fellas and you know that's not gonna fly here.
Reporter: We saw a lot of new champions crowned, how is that gonna play out?
HS: We all know what Kris and Mikah are gonna bring to the table. They've had championships all over the place, their names are written in SCW history. We know Alicia Lukas has lead before and been a success, but the wild cards here are Johanna Krueger and Jack Washington. Johanna lead the Mixed Tag Division, but it's different being out there on your own, but she's tough as fuck to be fair, so the Roulette division won't faze her at all. Jack Washington on the other hand has a lot of weight on his shoulders, but when you get endorsements from former champions like he has, I don't see why he can't do well.
Reporter: Who or what impressed you out there tonight?
HS: A lot impressed me, the whole roster impressed me. There was no half arsed performances out there at all tonight. People went hell for leather. There wasn't one sloppy performance at all, people put their bodies on the line for this.
Reporter: It's common for SCW to allow people to take breaks around about this time, so could we be seeing new faces coming in to replace people?
HS: New faces, old faces, some people coming back to TV that we haven't seen in a while due to various reasons, extended contract offers to some guys. I get people need time off after a show like this, I get people work themselves in to the ground. They haven't just pissed off cause they lost, they've gone cause they've earned a break. To me, this creates opportunity. Tonight, you saw Andrea Hernandez and Char Kwan change from who they were, so with the space opened up, it gives them a chance to show more of who they've become. I'm a fan of Tony Thorn and Violet Amelia Holt, there's space for those guys to appear more often. When people take breaks, it creates chance for others. There will be new faces but we have a lot here who will be showcased more.
Reporter: With this pandemic still on going, will we see any cuts anywhere?
HS: Mate if we wanted to make cuts, would we have had a Chamber of Extreme match, or Christian's Choice match? Those cinematic matches are not cheap. We've made no intentional cut backs through this whole thing and we won't start now. There'll be no drop in quality with High Stakes X up next.
Reporter: Everyone knows High Stakes is your main show, what should we expect from that?
HS: Well everyone knows we have J2H against Teddy Warren, it remains to be seen if there is a title on the line there. There's three other matches in my head right now, and even after tonight, you'd pay a fortune to see Jessie and Maki going at each other again. Christian is looking at matches that could be huge right now, I'm seeing matches that will be huge right now, but honestly, I wanna get that card booked pretty much right away and give everyone the best build up possible.
Reporter: What do you see for the future of SCU, GRIME and SCW?
HS: Greatness, nothing but greatness. You take those three rosters and you got some of the best in the world and it ain't gonna change now. This was another shot in the arm to wrestling in general. This is us saying we've been around a long time and we're still the best wrestling you'll see on your televisions. The fact is the future is bright, this is the place to see, the place to be.
Hot Stuff nods firmly.
HS: Ok ladies and gents. It's time for me to be quiet and you guys to meet some of the people who made last night possible....
This is where you lot take over. Have fun!
