Sin City Underground Ep 106: Violent Conduct Pre-Show comes to you taped in front of a sold out crowd at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, Alaska. This episode will air on WGN and the Sin City Network at 1:55pm PST on September 12th, 2021
SCW’s Violent Conduct is one of the most insane shows of the year. It boasts 17 wild matches, including 5 SCU title matches. While we’ve got a lot to look forward to on the main show, the Pre-Show is jam packed with the hottest action as well. We have grudge matches such as Dax versus Jamie, Team GO versus The Di Lucas, Katta Pult versus Azurine, and Jenifer versus Celeste. We’ve also got the conclusion of the Angel Kash Memorial Tournament, where either Ariana or Helena goes on to face Cordelia Clark in the main event for the Underground Championship. While we also see SCU’s first Gauntlet From Hell, where Omasa Tazu takes on multiple opponents, one at a time, and can only be defeated by medical stoppage. This and so much more as Underground Ep. 106: Violent Conduct Pre-Show comes at you LIVE!
The scene opens backstage at the Violent Conduct VII where we see Ariana Angelos working out ahead of her busy night, not only competing in the finals of the tournament but teaming up with HB Carter in tag team competition against Veronica and Giani Da Luca.
Ariana looks up and grins when she sees the Australian Bombshell Roulette Champion Krystal Wolfe walking up; to her, title over her shoulder.
Ariana: Hey Krystal…….
Before Ari can finish her sentence Carter himself steps into view.
HBCarter: Ari, honey, we need to discuss strategy ahead of the tag team match, oh……..
Carter trails off as he spots Krystal.
Krystal: Hey Carter.
HBCarter: Krystal, what are you doing here?
Krystal: You mean aside from my title defence on the main show?
Krystal asks as she pats her title.
Krystal: I’m here to support my fellow Go Gym Grads.
HBCarter: The same way you “supported” Tempest at Climax Control 310?
Krystal: That was different, and you know it! I wanted Bella at her best for the title defence!
HBCarter: By screwing over Tempest?! Whatever happened to loyalty between Go Gym Graduates?!
Krystal: The same person who attacked you two before your first ever tag team match? Yeah, she’s been really supportive and loyal, hasn’t she? And you saw what she attempted to do to Bella at Climax Control!
HBCarter: And you admitted that that wouldn’t have happened if you had kept your mouth shut…….
Ariana: For the love of God, shut the hell up!
Ariana finally interrupts her friends and Carter and Krystal turn to her.
Ariana: Look, in a way I agree with both of your points! Krystal, I know your heart was in the right place, but you were way out of line at Climax Control 310!
Krystal: And that justifies Tempest nearly putting Bella in the hospital?!
Ariana: I’m not saying it does, but maybe next time think before you Tweet! And Carter!
Ariana says as she turns to Carter.
Ariana: Can you honestly tell me that you weren’t mad at Tempest after she attacked us?!
HBCarter: No, I was pissed but I didn’t threaten to cost Tempest her first match!
Ariana: Then how can you be mad at Krystal for acting in her best interest?
HBCarter: Again, that attack could’ve been avoided if she had kept her mouth shut!
Ariana puts her finger on Carter’s lips.
Ariana: Or it could’ve been avoided if she had kept her temper in check!
Ariana says before she shakes her head.
Ariana: Look, Krystal has her title defence on the main show, I have potentially three matches to compete in tonight and one of them would be for a title and one of them is teaming with you, point is, we don’t need this crap before our matches! I’m not asking you to kiss and make-up right away,, but can we at least call a truce and focus on our matches tonight?!
HBCarter: I can do that I can call a temporary truce with Charlotte.
Krystal raises an eyebrow at being called by her birth name.
HBCarter: That is your name isn’t it? I heard the argument between you and Gabriel!
Krystal: There’s a reason why only Makayla, Gabriel and Odette can call me by that name Carter!
Krystal responds before shaking her head.
Krystal: You know what? Good luck in your matches tonight! I’ve got a title defence to prepare for!
Krystal storms off as the scene fades.
Backstage at the Sullivan Arena the camera finds Raisa and Helena.
Raisa: Good evening, we hope you are all very miserable.
Raisa stares into the camera.
Raisa: We are nearing the end of Ms. Clark’s tournament, but it isn’t going how she expected to. She hadn’t expected Helena to make it this far, but Helena is someone who doesn’t care who you place inside a wrestling ring with, she has defeated everyone thus far and tonight, after she defeats Ms. Angelos, she will defeat you Ms. Clark.
Helena: Alaska is such a lovely place isn’t it, if you like lovely, personally I hate lovely things, and must destroy them. Ms. Angelos, you are very unfortunate, for tonight you must try and survive an fight with someone like me, I can take all the time I need to hurt you Ms. Angelos.
Helena rocks backs and forth and the crate.
Helena: Ms. Angelos, I don’t like you, they don’t like you, therefore you must be beaten and destroyed, you defeat will send a message to Ms. Clark the faith she will also receive. The Jeckels have lived in the underground, Ms. Clark, and when you fall hear the devil whisper, Ms Clark your faith will be sealed.
The camera cuts backstage at the dressing room area to find a very curious site; that of Helluva Bottom Carter standing in front of a mirror. No, that part is very much familiar territory. We are speaking more about the fact that he is not dressed like himself. He is wearing a red and white striped muscle shirt, shades on the bridge of his nose as he checks out his reflection in a standing mirror. Blue jeans bleached a shade or two more than usual, knees torn and white high tops. Perhaps more curious is the fact his normal sandy blonde hair has been darkened to brunette shade and slicked back so tight it might make your ears hurt and his flesh tanned to an almost comical point.
Carter's absolute favorite backstage babe, Marissa Henry, approaches looking every bit as perplexed by this image shift as the rest of us are.
HBCarter: Oh, hey babe.
He says in an obviously phony Jersey Shore accent, bumping his hip into her own.
HBCarter: How they hanging?
Marissa: Excuse me? Carter? Why are you dressed like this? Why are you acting like this? Who are you supposed to be?
He pauses and asks with genuine sincerity, his own voice back.
HBCarter: What, you mean it's not obvious?
Marissa shakes her head no, indicating that it is anything but.
HBCarter: Well shoot!
He whips off what is now revealed to be a greasy, brunette wig and ruffles his blonde tresses as if it made his scalp itch.
HBCarter: I go through all of this trouble to make fun of that Italian Scallion Giani and I don't even get recognized!
Marissa: But... why would you want to make fun of Giani, let alone try to look like him?
HBCarter: Oh I know I could never look like him. I'm infinitely cuter. But that's a fair question from the fairest of them all backstage, so I'll give you this one. It's because I have a point to prove when Ari and I get to meet those two douche nozzles in the ring tonight. The next step, MY next step, is to get a shot at the Underground championship before year's end. I've proven myself time and again and somehow, someway, I think Giani thinks this match is his way of putting up a roadblock for yours truly.
Marissa: Do you think he still has that much stroke backstage?
HBCarter: No. The only stroke Giani has is in the bathroom after a night of boring sex with Ronnie. But the fact is that the Underground title is next on my list. You know it. The powers that be know it. And Giani knows it. And he thinks he is going to use the first time he gets to team with Botox Barbie in order to derail me from my goals to end 2021 as the youngest Underground Champion in SCU history?
Carter slaps the wig back on and leans in toward Marissa, putting his best/worst Jersey Shore accent back in play...
HBCarter: I. Don't. Think. So!
That being said, Carter snaps his fingers at Marissa and turns and walks off camera, leaving her looking more perplexed than when she first started this interview.
Chad: Before we kick off the first match, let’s talk about Underground Episode 107, Men’s Night. After our usual week off, we’re going to have a show featuring the men of SCU. We can expect to see epic title matches, and a whole lotta testosterone. So tune in on September 25th for the hot action. Now, let’s get things underway!!!
Final Round. No Time Limit Match
Helena Jeckel vs Ariana Angelos
As Helena and Ari get ready to start their match, loosening up for the grand opportunity to face Cordelia in the main event, the Sin City Tron turns on to show Gianni Di Luca walking down the hallway with a microphone in his hand. He is in his wrestling gear, and the crowd gives him an odd pop. He pauses and poses along the way, drawing the cheers in until he reaches the curtains. Two stage crew members step in front of the curtains as Gianni gives them both a nod. He raises his hand into the air, giving a few soft fist pumps when the lights in the arena shut off. “Wrecked” by Killbot plays over the speakers.
Lights flash across the crowd before the music hits a breakdown, and a huge blast of pyros go off. Gianni jumps through the parted curtains, past the pyros, and he stomps around the stage, drawing in even more cheers for his in-ring return. He walks back and forth a few times while Helena and Ariana look confused and annoyed. Gianni makes it to the ring steps, and he jogs up onto the apron. He climbs up to the second turnbuckle and begins pumping his fists as the music hits the second breakdown. He steps over the ropes and stands in the corner, lights flashing across him. He stomps in place, each stomp sending off another set of pyros from the ring posts. He then bounces off of the ropes and goes to the other side, feeling them out. He sees Helena and Ariana with their arms crossed, and he rolls his eyes. He waves for the lights to come back on and he raises the microphone to his lips, his head tilted back.
Gianni: Ey yo! It’s ya boy, G to the D to the muthafuckin’ L!
Gena: Yeah, we can see that. But what are you doing out here right now?
Chad: If you don’t know this by now, he’s about to tell us.
Gena: Yeah, I know dipshit, I mean sweetie…
Gianni: Fuhgeddaboudit! It’s “The Italian Stallion”, “The Reflection of Perfection”, “The King of the Ring”, Gianni Di Luca. But I don’t need to tell ya that. All I need is for the ring to be cleared out for a second while I tawk.
Gianni waves Helena out of the ring, who is ready to attack Gianni, but he doesn’t even miss a beat as he picks her up onto his shoulders. Instead of slamming her to the mat, he sets her on the ring apron.
Gianni: Get outta hey before ya make me do somethin’ ya gonna regret.
Helena doesn’t budge, but Ariana starts to leave the ring. But Gianni holds up a hand, telling her to stop. She smacks it out of the way, causing Gianni to quickly turn up the heel heat, grabbing Ari by her hair.
Gianni: I ain’t the one, cupcake. Now, I been known to be a patient man, but that attitude is on suspension, just like you if ya touch me again before the bell rings. Capiche? Good.
Gianni smirks and lets go of Ari’s hair. She grits her teeth, but takes the point and settles in place. Gianni looks over to the referee.
Gianni: You can go ahead and throw this match out, ‘cause GDL and VTDL gonna go ahead and start the night off right. Helena is gonna go ahead to the Pre-Show’s Main Event to fight Cordelia for the Underground Championship.
Gianni: Like I give a damn whatcha got-tuh say ‘bout it! Get outta hey… Naw, see, Ari, if ya feelin’ up to it after me and my wife wipe the mat with ya and Carter, then you are more than welcomed to join her.
The opening match has been thrown out, and both Helena Jeckel and Ariana Angelos will proceed to the the Main Event of the Pre-Show.
Chad: This tournament is the most screwed up tournament ever. But, I guess it’s no surprise, considering it was called the Angel Kash Memorial Tournament…
Gianni: That said, I know you was prepared for a No Time Limit match, so that’s just what this match is gonna be, starting as soon as our partners arrive. Just remember, don’t put ya hands on me, sweetheart…
Gianni winks and does an almost sadistic half smirk as Veronica comes down to the ring and holds onto Gianni’s arm. However, she glares at Ariana, nearly igniting the fight right then and there. Until Carter comes rushing down to start the next match.
Team GO vs Veronica and Gianni Di Luca
The fans clamour to see Gianni and Carter start the match off as we see a true competition between Team GO and The Di Lucas. Gianni wants to bring all eyes to the inside of the ring. He holds his arms up in the air, calling for a Test of Strength. Despite Carter being angry at this whole arrangement, he bites his bottom lip and walks toward the center. They meet in the middle of the ring for the Test of Strength, and this goes very quickly in one direction as Gianni quickly bends Carter backward. It ends when Gianni gets Carter down to the ground for a one count. Gianni showboats, flexing his muscles and mocking Carter, but Carter takes advantage of the early mistake and gains and maintains the advantage with a Belly-to-Back Suplex, followed by several reversals that turn into various suplexes. Gianni is forced to tag out to Veronica, and Carter tags in Ari. Veronica throws several kicks and punches, and they start to wear on Ari after a moment. However, Ari is able to catch one leg and falls back into a Release Suplex. Veronica lands in the corner, upside down. Before she can crumble, Ari hits a hard kick to Veronica’s midsection. She rushes back, and as she turns to run, Veronica has made it back to her feet, shrieking as she seems to have snapped. She gets hold of Ari’s hair and whips her to the mat. She climbs on top and bashes Ari’s head into the mat. The referee gives her warning to stop, but she keeps going. It takes Gianni getting inside of the ring to pull her off to avoid disqualification. She sneers at her husband and picks Ari up. She smashes her face into the turnbuckle right in front of Carter, calling for the tag to be made. Veronica picks pieces of hair from between her fingers as she walks over to tag Gianni back in. He and Carter meet in the middle of the ring, throwing punches. Carter’s Combat experience rivals Gianni’s boxing training. The two have a slugfest until Gianni secures a Suckerpunch. He then quickly brings Carter down into a Piledriver. He goes to set Carter up for the Jersey Turnpike (Pumphandle Slam) when Ari gets inside of the ring and claws at his back. Gianni drops Carter with the finisher, and then he whips Ari into the corner. He’s about ready to go for the Stampede (Body Avalanche) on Ari, but the referee warns him. He shoves the referee away. Another warning, and Veronica steps in to stop the disqualification. However, she doesn’t seem to like the tone of the referee, and she slaps him clear across the face! Team GO wins via disqualification as Gianni lifts the referee up for the Jersey Turnpike, landing it. He picks Carter up and delivers another Jersey Turnpike for having taken the loss, leaving Ari to check on Carter, who is only a bit out of it after a few moments. The Di Luca’s walk to the back as Carter glares at them the entire way up.
++ EARLIER IN THE DAY. ++
The opens backstage in the Sullivan Arena, where we see Amy standing in the empty catering area following a quick visit into the arena to sort a few things out as we as show her parents around before making her own little detour to check for any new regarding the card itself. As her husband and their little girl Beckett appears around the corner with Amy's parents and one of her sisters. Joey hands Beckett over to Amy, as her parents take a seat at a nearby table.
Amy's Mom: This is great Amelia... but why the tour of an empty quiet building.
Her mom asks.
Katherine: Because during the show its manic and everyone rushing around.
Amy's sister Katherine says with a smile, as reaches out and takes Beckett into her arms.
Amy: Thanks Katie. Also I... don’t... think... I have brought you to an arena before where I will be wrestling.
Amy says with a bit of hesitation in her voice as she thinks at the same time.
Amy's Dad: You haven’t. I have only caught bits and pieces of you wrestling on tv and YouTube.
Her dad says with a nod of appreciation
Amy's Mom: This isn’t to butter us up and get us to baby sit?
Her mom says scathingly.
Katherine: Actually... I am babysitting this beautiful little girl.
Katherine interrupts Amy very quickly before things get awkward between her and their mom.
Katherine: Amy asked me a few days back and i couldn’t resist this chubby little face.
Katherine squeezes Beckett tight and gives her a kiss on the cheek.
Amy's Mom: Oh ok.
Their mom replies in an almost disappointed tone.
Katherine: Don’t worry... I’ll come over with her a little later. Then i will make sure you will see her the morning before your flight back to Juneau.
Katherine says with a nod.
Amy's Mom: Are you not taking her back to your hotel?
Their mom asks.
Amy: By the time things start it will be her dinner and then bedtime. I don’t want to be dragging her away from her bed if i can help it.
Amy shrugs and smiles at Katherine, who had moved from Juneau to Anchorage a year earlier for work.
Amy's Dad: So what is the match order for this supercard of yours?
Her dad queries, as Beckett becomes a little fussy and Katherine hands her over to Joey who then sits down and places Beckett on the floor and then hand her a couple of toys from a bag.
Amy: Mercedes Vargas and I are up first on the main show. It’s going to be strange as I haven’t opened a show up for a long while.
Amy shrugs as she moves to one of the toys and brings it back to where Beckett is.
Amy's Mom: Is she a good wrestling person?
Her mom queries, which Amy lets out a small chuckle at how she phrased it, but she isn’t too bothered that her mom hasn’t watch her wrestle for perhaps a long while?
Amy: She is. One of the best.
Katherine: So why are you two opening the show?
Amy: In all honesty i don’t know but she is pulling double duty tonight. That is probably why. So I am going to have to make sure she will be in a lot of pain going into her second match later.
Amy's Mom: What type of match is this?
Her mom queries showing some concern.
Katherine: Trust me. You don’t want to know.
Katherine: Ask pops later to show you a video.
Katherine continues as Amy looks at the clock and then looks at Beckett who is pulls herself to her feet using a table.
Amy: I have booked a table for lunch just a few miles from here. Shall we go?
Amy's Mom: Why did we come here then?
Amy: It was easier to meet here etc.. so I can sort a few things out and then go on to the restaurant.
Amy's Mom: Oh ok. Are you taking me and your father Katherine?
Katherine: I am.
Katherine nods as Amy picks up the toys and stuff them back into the bag as Joey lifts Beckett and into his arms as they leave the empty catering area and head towards the exit. The scene fades out with them in getting into cars and heading to their destination.
Falls Count Anywhere
Dax Beckett vs Jamie Staggs
Dax and Jamie circle each other. Dax goes for a tie up, but Jamie gives a light slap to the crotch and spins around with a slap to the side of Dax’s face. He laughs about it, and points, giving Dax enough time to deck Jamie in the face. However, referee Alex Rush holds up a “BAM!” sign in front of them. The crowd groans, but also laughs a bit. Dax hits a few more jabs, gaining a “BOOM!”, “POW!”, and “WHAM!”. He then spins into a kick to Jamie’s midsection, for a “Bang!” Jamie goes down, and Dax starts to argue with Alex about the signs. Alex explains himself, but Dax isn’t budging. He goes to knock the signs out of Alex’s hands, but Jamie rolls Dax up for a two count. Dax kicks out and Jamie gets up to his feet. Dax, however, sweeps him off of his feet. He climbs on top of Jamie and starts to throw punches. “ZAP!”, “ZOOOOOOM!”, “!!!”, and “BLAP!” before Jamie grabs onto Dax’s head and hits a headbutt, earning a “ZONK!” for himself. He grabs Dax and raises him up to his feet. He hits a series of chops, getting a “RIP!”, “OH!”, and “BIFF!” as Jamie rushes Dax into the corner. He runs up the corner and hits a Hurricanrana, pinning for a 2 count. Dax reverses the pin, getting a two count himself. Jamie rolls back and hits a low dropkick to Dax’s face, getting a “CRASH!” Jamie hooks the leg, but only gets a 2.5 count. Jamie picks Dax up, setting him up for a Vertical Suplex. Dax drops down behind, looking for a German Suplex, but Jamie grabs an arm, twists it, and hits another nut shot, getting a “SMACK!” Alex spins Jamie around and tells him that move was illegal. Dax hits a Low Blow to Jamie in retaliation, but due to it being unexpected, Alex misses the opportunity to use a sign. He tells them both that the next nut shot will be a disqualification. Jamie and Dax both reach up and punch Alex in the groin. His eyes bug out and he lowers to the ground, clutching the “THWACK!” sign against his groin. All three men are laid out on the ground, clutching their crotches. They roll around on the ground for a moment before Alex calls for the bell by holding up a “DING!” sign three times. The match ends as a double disqualification.
The scene cuts in on SCU Underground Champion Cordelia Clark and she is storming through the hallway. She’s in an incredibly bad mood having heard the announcement regarding her title match later in the night. Finding a locker room, she barges in.
Cordelia: Morgan, you are not going to believe this!
Cordelia maintains her anger as she looks around for her. There is absolutely no sign of her.
Cordelia: Morgan? Morgan? Where the heck are you, sis?
Cordelia continues to look around. Suddenly, she finds a folded piece of paper in her locker. She grabs it and opens it…
Cordelia: “Cordy, I’ve got my own stuff to focus on tonight. Sorry. I know you’ve got this tonight. Love, Morgan.”
Morgan leaving her to her own devices certainly doesn’t make Cordelia all that happy. Still, she is not throwing a fit over this as she figures that Morgan is just going through a mood. She spots the camera in front of her and she’s in a really foul mood as she begins to express her thoughts.
Cordelia: Of ALL the people I had to lose my unpinned, undefeated streak to in this company… it had to be HER? It had to be THAT THING? And to make matters even worse, the powers that be decide to forgo the tournament final and have both Ariana Angelos and Helena Jeckel face me in a triple threat? Are you KIDDING ME? This is about as unfair and ridiculous as it gets. Seriously. I think it’s quite obvious that they’re stacking the deck against me. I know what both of these women are going to think. They are going to think that I am vulnerable because of the events of the last SCU show. No, I am NOT vulnerable. I am NOT going to be some one cycle champion! I did not win this title at SuperNova to lose it THIS soon, especially to mediocre, C plus players at best in Ariana and Helena, two women that I have beaten multiple times by this point. Losing the title to EITHER of them… ESPECIALLY Ariana… would be a blight on the legacy that I am building and it would TOTALLY put a dent on the reputation that I have built up in Sin City Underground for the moment that I arrived and I am NOT going to let that happen.
You hear that, ladies? I don’t give a crap about what you’ve done in this tournament. You two are NEVER going to impress me! You’ve wasted all of your luck and good fortune in this tournament but let me tell you something, lightning does not strike twice especially against a superior being like me! I am THE valedictorian of this company. No woman has been more dominant in SCU than I have been. As TV Champion and Underground Champion, I have beaten EVERYONE that they’ve put in front of me, including you two flukes on multiple occasions. I have turned back people from SCU and from GRIME. You two have tried MULTIPLE TIMES to take the next step in SCU and you never do! With what I have done since I have been here, particularly from the moment I officially became the SCU Television Champion, I have accomplished more than both of you COMBINED! This story doesn't end with a Cinderella victory. This story doesn't end with Helena Jeckel fluking her way to a world championship. This story is NOT going to end with the SENTIMENTAL FAVORITE who is ALWAYS getting opportunities handed to her like candy in Ariana Angelos “FINALLY COMING THROUGH!” It’s NEVER going to happen and it’s especially never going to happen at MY EXPENSE! So at the end of the day, you two ladies can continue to keep dreaming. You may think that you are going to take full advantage of this GIFT that the powers that be have given you in stacking the deck against me but at the end of the day, you are both going to end up FAILING to take this title from me just like ORCHID did! I will silence the two of you and your hopes and dreams just like I did with her.
And when it’s all over, you are both going to be left empty shells of yourselves, regretful that once again you had an opportunity to be somebody only to be left with NOTHING! You two are dreamers that never amount to anything beyond that… I am the one woman around here that brings reality to the table and shatters them. Women like you in society will NEVER be better than women like me!
Tonight? I’m overcoming the stacked odds and I’m going to retain this championship! You two? Keep dreaming… because that’s as far as you are EVER going to get!
Cordelia bolts out of the locker room at this point, clearly carrying a bunch of anger and frustration within her as the scene fades out.
