“I’m finally moving in with her. As a lot of you know, its been a long time in the making; a year-plus in the making. We’re perfect for each other. Stupid me for being so blind to seeing it. I can’t wait to be with her!!!”
The scene opens up to Jordan Williams knocking on a door. Jordan has a big grin on his face as he await’s the door to be open. When the door opens, Jordan and…
his estranged wife, Vanessa Sambora-Williams embrace with a long, tight hug as the scene fades out.
“I never-not wanted to be with Vanessa. I’ve been an idiot and made very bad decisions and too stubborn to change. I had a moment and it dawned on me, I want Vanessa in my life, I need her in my life. I need her to balance me out. That’s what being in a relationship is all about. Finding someone who completes you and negates your shortcomings. She’s always been that for me, but I’m not fighting it anymore. I’ve accepted it. I know I’m stupid for trying to fuck up a great thing, but Vanessa is unlike any woman I’ve met before. She understands me, she loves me unconditionally. She’s a great mother, great wife, and not to mention, she’s finest woman on this earth with the best body in the world.”

“I agreed to go to marriage counseling because I do need some guidance. It wasn’t a condition of us getting back together, but I know she was saying we should go, so I figured what the hell else am I going to do during the day time!?!?!?!?”
<hr width=“200” align=“center“>
The scene opens up on the Royal Monarch cruise ship. The ship has already set sail on a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky. On board, Jordan Williams is at the pool, sitting on the edge with his feet dipped into the water. Jordan is sipping on a pina colada. Not soon thereafter, Jordan is joined by his best friend, Hot Stuff Mark Ward.
Jordan: “Damn bro, took you long enough.”
HS: “I couldn’t make up my mind.”
Jordan: “What did you get?’
HS: “A little bit of everything.”
Jordan laughs a bit and then notices that HS is serious.
Jordan: “Get the fuck out!”
HS: “I need something to get me into second gear, I figured, ‘why not try a little bit of everything?’”
Jordan: “You’re crazy, bro.”
HS: “Well, I took a few sips and it’s definitely strong enough.”
Jordan shakes his head and says: “You damn Brits. Ya’ll will drink anything.”
HS nods his head aggressively in approval.
HS: “It’ll keep me on edge.”
Jordan: “But they didn’t really have too many options though. A fucking high school kid wouldn’t get drunk off this shit.”
HS: “It’s exactly why I combined them all. This poolside bar is the shits. They don’t want to serve nothing too strong around the pool so people don’t get their arse drunk and drown in the pool.”
Jordan nods his head, then says: “Good point. I guess I never thought about it that way.” he says as he shrugs his shoulders.
HS: “One of the reasons why I’m drinking is I’m worried about you, bro?”
HS: “You sound like a man who’s about to hang up the boots.”
Jordan is quiet for a moment and takes a sip of his drink.
HS: “I knew it!”
Jordan takes another sip as he holds his hand in the air, then says: “Now wait a sec, bro.”
Jordan thinks about what he’s going to say but HS interjects.
HS: “Bro, you can’t walk away! We need you around.”
Jordan smirks for a second, then says: “I don’t know, bro. Vanessa and I are getting back together and…”
HS: “That’s great to hear, bro. Now don’t fuck it up this time!”
Jordan smiles, then says: “I know, I know. I’m not. But of not fucking it up is not wrestling. My marriage means more to me than this…wrestling.”
HS: “I understand that, bro. We need a veteran, a legend like yourself to show these young guys the way. You don’t know how much I appreciate the fact that you take time out to help them out. It helps grow them as performers and us as a company.”
Jordan: “I have fun doing it. I mean I could still do that, but wrestling full time is out of the question.”
HS: “What if you win the title? You’re just going to retire?”
Jordan: “No, if I win, I’ll do my duties as champion. I’ll work a full time schedule until I lose it. But if I lose in the main event, it’s my last match as an active competitor.”
HS takes a drink of his concoction as he let’s that sink in.
Jordan: “I just can’t do it anymore, bro. My family takes priority, as does my health. What I said in Japan applies here, I want my body to remain intact as I get older. I’ve already had two ACL surgeries, thank god I haven’t had anything else you know. But the older I get, the more likely hood of that happening.”
HS: “Understood…any other reasons?”
Jordan: “That’s the main one.”
HS: “So there’s others?”
Jordan: “I’m definitely feeling the decline. I’m not on top of my game anymore. These young guys are better…”
HS cuts Jordan off and says: “Bullocks! I never thought I’d hear the day where Jordan Williams, the God of Professional Wrestling would say someone else is better than him…What the fuck, bro?”
Jordan sips his drink, then says: “I never thought I would say it either…but it’s true. I’m not at my physical peak anymore.”
HS shakes his head and says: “I can’t believe I’m hearing this…do you hear yourself?”
Jordan: “Yeah, I hear myself. But it’s true. I fucking lost to Simon Jones. No disrespect to him, but I’m slippin’.”
HS: “So you had a bad match? We all have them.”
Jordan: “Bro, there was a time when I would’ve blown Simon out of this world…but not only did he hang in there, he actually beat me…that’s a blow to my confidence.”
HS: “I don’t want to hear that shit. You’re Jordan fucking Williams. You’ll bounce back, you always do.”
Jordan rubs his head with his free hand, then says: “I don’t want to go through this phase of my career where guys like Simon Jones are beating me. Fuck that.”
HS: “There’s no shame in losing to Simon, though. He’s quality.”
Jordan: “Yes he is. He’s a good wrestler. But I’m great…or was great.”
HS: “No matter the outcome, you’ll still wrestle after Summer XXXtreme. Wrestling is in your blood, bro. The time you quit wrestling is the time we wheel you out on your death bed!”
Jordan smirks, then says: “At one time I felt that way, but not anymore. I’m telling you bro, if I lose at the super card, I’m done.”
HS sighs as he stares at his best friend. HS takes a drink of his concoction as he looks down at the water in the pool.
HS: “You’re serious, huh?”
Jordan: “I hate to say it, but yes. I’ll come back for something worthwhile. Like a special match or feud. But that’s it. No more full time. Can’t do it anymore.”
HS pats Jordan on the back and says: “Okay bro…I respect that. But I don’t like it though.”
Jordan: “I regain the title, I’ll stay for as long as I’m champ. But if I lose, this is it. I don’t want a big spectacle. I want to do it quietly”
HS: “Ha! Jordan, you’re the ultimate…how can I put it? Diva!”
Jordan starts laughing, then says: “Okay I am a diva…but not when it comes to this.”
HS: “Things must be changing with you bro, because you’re doubting yourself and you don’t want attention. The world must be about to end!” he says with a laugh.
Jordan smiles and says: “Something like that.”
HS: “But you can win the match. You have just as good as chance as anyone.”
Jordan: “Yeah, but I have two guys in the match that has been my bugaboo since I got here.”
HS: “Nick and Gabriel.”
Jordan: “Bingo was his name-o.”
HS: “They’re tough, but you can beat them. You pinned Gabriel fair and square earlier this year…well sorta.”
Jordan: “It was fair and square. Last I checked the match wasn’t reversed.”
HS: “You did spit that green mist in his face, so that’s why I said that.”
Jordan: “It’s only illegal if you get caught.” he says with a laugh.
Jordan: “He’s the only one on par with me mentally. He’s crafty and heady.”
HS: “Can’t argue with you.”
Jordan: “I’m over that thing with Odette, but I want to eliminate him just to so I can have the last laugh.”
HS: “I know what you mean, but that’s going to be easier said then done, bro.”
Jordan: “Right, but I’ll pull out all the psychology tricks with Gabes. Nick…he’s a different story.”
HS laughs and says: “You got that right. Nick isn’t just a story, he’s a damn novel.”
Jordan laughs and says: “Fucking A. I never got to pin that little shit. He talks about me being past my prime and washed up and there maybe some truth that…”
Jordan looks at HS and says: “As I was saying bro, before you rudely interrupted me…”
Jordan: “Before I go I at least want to pin him, to say I finally did. Can you believe I’ve never pinned him?”
HS: “It’s a weird coincidence.”
Jordan: “It just gnaws at me that I haven’t beaten him.”
HS: “You did in tag matches.”
Jordan: “Yeah, but I never pinned him in either of those, though. That’s the thing that drives me nuts.”
HS: “Haha, I know how it feels.”
Jordan: “I also can’t wait to get in there with Kevin Carter. It’ll be payback time for him.”
HS: “It seems like you have a vendetta against everyone in this match.”
Jordan: “Not really. Not against Drake. He’s cool, I like him a lot. The only thing I have against Drake is he’s a threat to me regaining my title, that’s all. Other than that, Drake’s cool by me.”
HS: “Regardless of those self doubts of yours, bro…you can win this match. It’s all about you believing it and going out there and do it. I know you can.”
Jordan: “I don’t need a pep talk, bro.” he says with a laugh.
HS: “What was one of the things you used to tell me when you trained me…always carry yourself as being the best and believe, because if you don’t…no one else will. Seems like you’re having trouble with that one, bro.”
Jordan looks at HS and says: “The student is schooling the teacher…I guess it’s coming around full circle, huh?” he says jokingly.
HS laughs and says: “You got that right, baldy!”
Jordan and HS laugh as they both start sipping on their drinks. Across the pool, two females come walking into view. Jordan and HS both look at each other.
Jordan shakes his head and says: “Nah!”
HS: “Good choice, baldy. More for me.”
HS stands up and walks over to the other side of the pool where the two females are as Jordan smiles to himself as the scene fades out.
The scene fades in at a bar later on that night where Jordan Williams is among one of many SCW wrestlers having drinks and mingling with the fans. Jordan is talking to a fan as the camera cuts in on the conversation.
Fan: “You know what I came across the other day?”
Jordan: “What’s that?”
Fan: “You and the Great Muta teaming up.”
Jordan: “Ah ha, yeah. That was a one time thing.”
Fan: “That entrance was fucking awesome…”FLASHBACK
to May 3, 2001 in the Tokyo Dome:
The Dome goes completely dark and the fans gasp as the lights cut out. Suddenly a white light shines on the entrance and there is a man dressed in ninja garb hitting a gong repeatedly. The sound of thunder is heard throughout the Tokyo, followed by lightning effects. The entrance is completely engulfed in smoke now when all of a sudden, “Great Muta Concerto” blasts the sound system and the fans in the arena go absolutely crazy! The fans cheer loudly as two figures slowly make their way out from the smoky entrance. It’s the Great Muta and Jordan as The Great Marauder. They are both wearing matching gi’s and ninja masks, except Muta is wearing all red and Marauder is wearing all green. They both also have a dragon on their shoulder that is breathing out flames. They look at each other and their dragon’s are matched up to where they’re breathing fire at each other. Muta and Marauder make their way down the long entrance ramp as the cheers in the Tokyo Dom are deafening at this point. As they reach the ring, they both look around before the two of them step between the ropes at the same time. They both take off their ninja masks as the lights go back to normal. Marauder’s face is painted just like Muta’s but with a heavy black mixed with green color scheme to it. They both stalk the ring with their dragon’s on their shoulder’s breathing fire. After a few moments they take their gi’s off and hand them to ring attendants.
After their opponents, Masahiro Chono and Hiroyoshi Tenzan make their entrance. Marauder and Muta are in the blue corner and Marauder is kneeling on one knee as Muta stands above him.
Announcer: “In the blue corner, Great-o Mutoh and Great-o Marauder!!!”
As the announcer finishes it, Muta and Marauder tilt their heads up and at the same time their mist into the air, mixing them…Muta with red mist, Marauder with green! The fans oooo and awww at the momentBACK TO PRESENT DAY
Jordan: “Yeah that was awesome, man.”
The scene fades out as Jordan and the fan continue talk about old stories.
The scene opens up to the bowels of the royal monarch. The camera pans around to see two men and a female are chained to a pole. One of the men is Jordan Williams and the female is Sasha. The other man is unconscious as Jordan is struggling to get free from the chains. Sasha stands up and pulls with all her might and breaks the chains.
Jordan: God damn! How the hell can you break those chains and I can't?
Sasha: I'm stronger than you.
Sasha: then break it.
Jordan: I did, but isn't working. Help me out please
Sasha mutters under her breath: weakling.
Jordan rolls his eyes as Sasha walks over to him. Sasha pulls back on chains but they don't break.
Jordan: told ya!
Sasha: whatever. You pull and I'll pull too.
Jordan and Sasha both pull back on the chain and they finally break the chain.
Jordan goes to high five Sasha but she ignores him.
A sad Jordan says: that's fucked up!
Sasha rolls her eyes then says: “Let’s get out of here.”
Jordan: “What about this dude?”
Jordan points to the guy who is semi conscious.
Sasha: “We’ll leave him.”
Jordan: “We can’t just leave him.”
Sasha: “Jordan, let’s go.”
Before Jordan can say anything, the man speaks up and says: “Pl…please don’t leave me. I mu…must save my queen.:
Jordan looks at Sasha and then at the dude as if he’s crazy.
Jordan: “Dude, I’m not sure how Sasha and I got here, but I can tell you one thing, we’re on a cruise ship…there is no fucking queen on here.”
Guy: “I assure you, my queen is in danger. These pirates took her captive and intend to kill her. Please, help me get loose and save her. I will forever be in debt to you.”
Sasha: “To hell with him. He’s probably hopped up on drugs. Let’s go Jordan.”
Guy: “Please madam!”
Jordan looks at Sasha with a puppy dog face and says: “Even if the queen story is bullshit, we can’t leave him here, plus I want to find out who the fuck chained us down here.”
Sasha: “That’s what I care about most. Fuck him and a queen.”
Jordan: “Come on girl.”
Sasha sighs deeply and says: “FINE!”
Sasha walks over to the guy, as does Jordan and both break the chains off the guy.
Guy: “Thank you, I promise you, I will pay you back. You will not regret this act of kindness.”
Jordan helps the guy to his feet and they make their way to the door. They go to open it but see that it’s locked.
Sasha looks through a window to see there is a guy patrolling at the end of the hallway.
Sasha: “There is a guy…”
Guy: “Pirate…he’s a pirate.”
Sasha gives the man a death stare, then says: “Whatever. He has to walk down here and when he does, we’ll break down the door.”
Jordan: “Great idea.”
Sasha: “Of course it is.”
Guy: “Yes, this plan is very great.”
Jordan and Sasha look at each other and just shake their heads. After a few minutes, the pirate aligns himself with the door and actually goes to peak in and Jordan and Sasha both shoulder tackle the door, easily knocking the door off its hinges and crushing the man.
Sasha looks down at the pirate, spits on him and says: “Asshole.”
Jordan: “He has to have a weapon on him.”
Jordan kneels down and searches the pirate and pulls out a wooden knife.
Jordan: “What the fuck is this? Peter Pan?”
Guy: “A very devious weapon.”
Jordan and Sasha again look at each other and rolls their eyes.
Jordan: “Let’s get to the deck.”
Jordan, Sasha and the man walk down the hallway and up the stairs to the deck. They look around to see that old school pirates have taken over the ship.
Guy: “I told you. Pirates…”
Jordan: “Yeah, you weren’t bullshitting. What is your name by the way?”
Guy: “Jacob…Jacob Longbeard.”
Jordan face palms himself, then says: “What the hell is going on?”
Jacob: “My queen has been kidnapped.”
Jordan: “I know that but…” Jordan realizes he won’t get any where and quits in mid sentence. Jordan turns to Sasha and says: “What do you want to do?”
Sasha: “Kick whoever these people’s ass. They chained me up and I will kill anyone who was associated with it.”
Jordan: “Sounds like a plan. Jacob, can you fight?”
Sasha: “Why am I not surprised?” she says sarcastically.
Jacob: “But I am an excellent swordsman!” he says proudly.
Jordan hands him the wooden knife then says: “Here then use this. Sasha and I only need our fists.”
Jacob: “Oh but you will need a sword for John Black. The man who lead this kidnapping. He’s an excellent swordsman and your fists will not be enough.”
Jordan: “Well you can handle him.”
Jacob: “Good, I intend to.”
Jordan: “Just follow behind us and when we see old Johnny Black, then you can sword fight him to the death.”
Jacob: “Iye Iye!” he says with his bright eyes and huge grin.
Sasha: “Seriously?” she questions sarcastically.
Jordan: “Let’s just go.”
Sasha nods at Jordan and they run up to the deck and immediately start brawling with the pirates. Jacob follows behind them as they dispose of the pirates with ease. The scene cuts to John Black who sees this going on and yells out to his fellow pirates around him.
John: “Get the queen! It’s time to end this charade!”
The pirates around him get excited and run down the stairs into the hull below as John smiles, but has a concerned look on his face as Jordan and Sasha are destroying his men as they get closer to him. Suddenly a females voice can be heard cursing and yelling at the pirates who are bringing her up the steps.
John: “Prepare her to walk the plank!”
The men yell: “Iye Iye!”
The men prepare the queen to walk the plank. After a few minutes, she is prepared, but Jordan and Sasha have just dismantled the rest of the pirates and stare down John.
John: “Impressive! But you will not stand in the way of the Queen’s destiny! She will die today!”
The men who brought the Queen up go to attack Jordan and Sasha but they easily dispatch of them. Jordan gets a smirk on his face as John Black has a glimmer of concern on his face.
Jordan: “In case you haven’t seen, your men aren’t a match for us, so we will help you.”
John: “Ha! You haven’t met this one!”
John whistles and after a few moments a gigantic man who is over seven feet tall comes staggering out.
Sasha: “Just more for me to beat on.”
Jordan: “Hell yeah. Let’s go!”
Jordan and Sasha commence to fight the gigantic man as Jacob stares at John.
John: “Oh Jacob, you’re a puny swordsman. You can’t beat me.”
Jacob: “Like hell, John Black…you swine!”
John: “Ha! You and your insults don’t bother me!”
Jacob: “Let’s dance!”
Jacob and John clash wooden swords and begin fighting. Meanwhile, Jordan and Sasha are having their hands full with the giant man. Eventually Jordan and Sasha backs him up to the edge and knock him off the ship and into the water.
Jordan yells: “Man overboard!”
Sasha looks at Jordan as if he’s stupid.
Jordan shrugs his shoulders and says: “What? I always wanted to say that!”
Sasha: “You’re weird.”
The scene cuts back to Jacob and John. John has the upper hand as the two fight on the plank. Jacob is nearing the edge of the plank.
John: “Say your last words you girly man!”
John takes a strong side swipe swing at Jacob, who springs over the top of John with a somersault and John looses his balance and falls into the water as Jacob lands on his feet perfectly. Before John Black hit’s the water, a gigantic alligator snatches him out of the air and swallows him before the alligator crashes back in the water. Jordan sees this and is astonished.
Jordan: “Okay, this is. Is. Insane!” Jordan turns to Sasha and says: “You see that shit?”
Sasha shrugs her shoulders and says: “I saw it.”
Jacob runs past them and says: “My queen!”
Jacob runs over to the queen who is still tied up. Jordan and Sasha follow behind him.
Jacob: “I’m so glad you’re safe my queen! They did not harm you, did they?”
The queen turns to face them and says: “No they didn’t Jacob, other than being pissed off, I’m fine.”
Jordan jaw drops and yells: “MISTY!?!?!?”
Misty: “Who were you expecting?” she says with an evil grin.
Suddenly, the scene cuts to Jordan sitting up in his bed in his room on the real Royal Monarch ship.
Jordan: “That was a freaky dream!” he says with sweat beads dripping down his as the scene fades out.
The scene opens up to deck where the ring is set up for Summer XXTreme. Jordan Williams is sitting on the apron as the ring crew is setting up the lighting and chairs around him, preparing for the gigantic super card.
Jordan: “Tonight could very well be my last match. Depends on what happens. If I win the title, of course I will defend it like the proud and fighting champion that I am. If I lose…and that’s a big IF
, I’ll quietly hang up the boots and walk away. My time at being at the peak of my powers is just about over, however, I have enough magic left…enough gas left in the tank to do this one more time. But I’m not going to make this the focus. My focus is the five men in this match besides myself.”
Jordan pauses for a moment, then continues.
Jordan: “While I do think my prime is past, I know I can walk into the main event and win this thing. If I don’t, then at least I know I gave it my best shot.”
Jordan pauses again, thinking about what he just said.
Jordan: “Listen to me…I’ve never spoken like this. Self doubt is at an all time high with me, however I’m still confident that I can get the job done. Becoming a two time SCW Heavyweight Champion is what I’m consumed with right now. There isn’t anything in this world that I won’t do, short of giving up my family to make sure I walk away with the title. You best believe Sasha is going to get involved. The mist will be spit…multiple times if need be. I will pull out all the stops. I will leave it all out in this ring. So if I won I won with my best. If I lose, then I lose with my best.”
Jordan smirks as he says that and takes a deep breath before continuing.
Jordan: “Things are changing for me, but I still have some fight in me. I could still continue on if I really wanted, but I’m one of those who don’t to see the decline. I want to leave at the top of my game. While I’m not at the very best I’ve ever been, where I’m at now is better than anyone in this match. That includes Nick and Gabriel, two men who I’ve had trouble with.”
“Gabriel, I will say this now, I will officially label you my rival. We’ve faced each other enough, we have enough history for me to say so. Regardless of what happens, if this is my last match or not, it was an honor facing you, even though you were on the winning side more times than I was. But it wasn’t one sided, it was a good balance. But believe me, I will make it a point to beat you tonight.”
“Nicky. You are my friend and a peer. I have a ton of respect for you, but we’ve always had a rivalry with one another. We always had the argument who was better. I felt I was, you felt you was. I’ll go down swinging saying I’m better than you, because when you did beat me, there was always bullshit going on. Be it Big B and Tony fucking things up or another wrestler. You never beat me clean with no interference. But you’re a very talented person and just like with Gabriel, I will try my hardest to make sure it was me who eliminated you.”
“Simon Jones…Cinderella. Your fifteen minutes run out tonight. I respect you, but you and I will have a go at it before its said and done. But no matter what, I will shake your hand, because that’s how much respect for you. Same for you Drake. You’re a tremendous competitor and it won’t be long before you’re SCW Champion. But like I told you, it isn’t your time yet. It’s my time. You’ll have to wait. Kevin Carter. You’re the one person who’s annoyed me more than anyone. We have a history that goes back a long way, but I never got revenge on you. But I will tonight, I guarantee it.”
“There you have it. These might be the last words I speak as an active competitor. I will make sure it continues after tonight, but if it doesn’t, I’m glad I came out of retirement and joined SCW. It was fun. But before I say goodbye, I will win the SCW Championship one last time. Why? Because I’m too good for ya!”
Jordan says that with his trademark grin as the scene fades out, perhaps for the last time?
