Re: Stojy Freak Presents: WWF

Staples Center, Los Angeles, California
Vince McMahon is sitting in an office, having just finished going through some paper work, twiddling his thumbs, waiting for the arrival of some of the fan mail regarding last night’s Wrestlemania. McMahon, hating when things are late, jumps up when he hears a knock on the door.
Vince McMahon: Come in!
The door opens slowly, and one of the backstage crew steps through the door timidly, holding a big bundle of mail, all directed towards Vince McMahon himself.
Vince McMahon: Just plop them on my desk, I will look at them when I’m ready.
The crew member does what he is told before quickly leaving, seemingly intimidated by the boss.
Vince McMahon: Thanks…
McMahon doesn’t read through the mail immediately, as he instead sits still while looking at the mail, perhaps waiting for something?
Then, as if on cue, in walks Shane and Stephanie McMahon who look rather dazzled: it must be a busy day for the two younger McMahons.
Vince McMahon: About time…
The younger duo look at each other and shake their heads as their father should definitely know how tough working in the business can be at times, before Shane then speaks up.
Shane McMahon: Sorry Dad, we were…
Vince interrupts his son.
Vince McMahon: Save it, we’ve got heaps of mail, let’s start reading.
For the next few hours, things are relatively silent in the office, before Shane finishes reading the last letter.
Shane McMahon: Its official, Paul can not be champion anymore…
Steph nods agreeing with Shane, but Vince doesn’t seem too happy with this statement.
Vince McMahon: Why the hell not?
Shane shakes his head, looking as if he is ready to give up, so Stephanie takes over.
Stephanie McMahon: Dad, be logical for a minute. There is so much hate mail here claiming that if Paul keeps the strap, that they will no longer watch, meaning that we could lose thousands of viewers. The best thing to do for the company right now would to take the strap off Paul, I mean, who really cares if we take it off him a bit earlier? He was scheduled to lose it at Backlash anyway?
Vince thinks for a second before speaking.
Vince McMahon: We want to be unpredictable, we want to be cutting edge and the most unpredictable thing for us to do would be to keep the strap on Paul… Yes people don’t like it, but they’re not going to stop watching. It’s all empty threats; I think we should milk this Paul/Dwayne feud for all we can. Besides, it can’t end the way things went down last night, last night just opened up a whole new chapter to the feud.
Shane, still not too sure, pipes in with a simple question which will decide the direction of the company from this point onwards.
Shane McMahon: So…we’re going to keep the strap on Paul?
Vince thinks carefully before answering this question.
Vince McMahon: I’m not sure yet… I’m going to ask some of the guys (wrestlers), ask some of the crew, speak to Patterson and Briscoe, some of the storyline writers and see just where to go from here, because I don’t want to make a decision that people within the company won’t be happy with.
Vince then leaves, as Shane and Stephanie look at each other, as they both still seem to be apprehensive regarding this whole situation.
It has been reported that young up and comer Essa Rios has had a family tragedy and is heading back to Mexico. Vince McMahon apparently had huge plans for him and was not happy, however Rios confronted him earlier today and respectively asked to be let off his contract, and McMahon grudgingly obliged. The World Wrestling Federation will now have to rethink some things regarding where they were heading, and we all wish Essa Rios and his family the best in his future.
It has been reported that Essa Rios has indeed left the company, albeit on good terms. It is now said that Rios’ manager Lita, will be paired with The Hardy Boyz. Matt Hardy and Lita apparently have a little something going on outside of wrestling, and they’re going to use this to pair these three together.
Pretty self explanatory this is. The Triple H thing is going to go for a little while, hopefully lead to something big. Show is about half done, I've been extremely busy, and I have four tests this week, so don't expect the preview anytime soon.
