-[[ The show opens with a shot of what looks to be a conference room. The text "LAST WEDNESDAY" written across the bottom of the screen. There are people seated all around a table, papers in front of them, a large video screen on the wall. Arn Anderson is seated at the head of the table. Despite all of the trouble he caused last Sunday, he looks normal, calm and collected. A man at the other end of the table rifles through some papers and looks up at Anderson. ]]-

SGWx Board of Directors Member: Mr. Anderson, it is never an easy decision when we have to do something like this.. It's not a good situation, it's bad press.. Shane McMahon is out indefinitely with a fractured skull and we still have no idea who did it, he's not able to speak just yet.

-[[ Anderson listens intently. ]]-

SGWx Board of Directors Member: Chaos was reigning supreme last week.. People getting attacked from behind, weapons being used, wrestlers making their own match stipulations... Basically...

-[[ He flips through some more papers. ]]-

SGWx Board of Directors Member: Everything Shane McMahon claimed was not going to happen happened.. On the first show, we were given no sign of change from his previous incarnations of Solid Gold Wrestling.. Things got out of control until he, himself, became a victim. SGWx was heralded as being about the talent, not about backstage squabbles or personal vendettas. And that's why we view Shane McMahon's injury.......

-[[ The man gives a slight smile. ]]-

SGWx Board of Directors Member: As a positive. SGWx, one show in, became exactly like every other promotion out there. Chaotic. Garbage wrestling. We need someone who will regulate. Someone that will take SGWx back to the glory days of old...

-[[ The man raises his eyebrow at Anderson. ]]-

SGWx Board of Directors Member: That brings us to you, Mr. Anderson. Last week, you took charge in Mr. McMahon's absence. You kept order and you regulated where need be. We have already voted on the matter and come to our decision that until Shane McMahon recovers, you are going to be the interim owner of Solid Gold Wrestling-X. And when Mr. McMahon returns, we'll have another vote as to who we see fit to run a promotion of SGWx's caliber. Thank you for your time, Mr. Anderson.

-[[ The man stands up and walks over to Anderson. They shake hands. ]]-

Arn Anderson: No...Thank you.

-[[ Fade out. ]]-

Winner: Taz via Submission


-[[ As the other wrestlers begin making their way to the back, Taz stands in the ring, still wanting a fight, he's barely broken a sweat, it seems!! "ANDERSON!!!" Taz gets out of the ring and storms around the ringside area. He grabs a microphone and rolls back in the ring. The fans are buzzing with anticipation. Taz raises the microphone and begins to speak. ]]-

TAZ: ANDERSON!! You son of a bitch!! You got da' balls to hit me in da' fuckin' face wit' a tire iron.. Let's see if you got da' balls to come out here, look me in da' fuckin' eye, and give me an explanation!!

-[[ The fans don't have to wait long before Anderson's music hits. He gets a loud mixed reaction, some fans still don't want to accept what he did last week. Anderson makes his way to the ring with a confidence that pisses Taz off even more than he already was. Taz keeps talking. ]]-

TAZ: Come on down, Anderson, get in da' ring, you stupid mutha' fucker.

-[[ Anderson walks up the steps casually, without a care in the world, and gets in the ring. Taz looks like he's trying hard to hold himself back. Anderson reaches back and grabs the microphone that was sticking out of his back pocket. He begins to talk. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Taz--

TAZ: SHUT DA' FUCK UP!! Let me tell you somethin', mutha' fucker, doin' what you did to me last week, you either got some big god damn balls or you're plenty fuckin' stupid!!

-[[ Anderson strokes his beard, letting Taz finish. ]]-

TAZ: I got this sayin'... Screw me once, I CHOKE YOU OUT. Screw me twice, I CHOKE YOUR BITCH ASS OUT AGAIN!!

-[[ Taz gets right up in Anderson's face. Some fans screaming "HIT HIM! HIT HIM!!" ]]-

TAZ: I owe ya' two, mutha' fucker.

-[[ Anderson looks out at the fans and then raises the microphone. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Let me tell you somethin' about Solid Gold Wrestling, Taz.. Solid Gold Wrestling exemplifies class. Solid Gold Wrestling is a place where the best of the best come to compete for the most prestigious world title in the business... In your time with SGW, you saw the best of the best come and go...

-[[ Anderson looks Taz in the eyes. ]]-

Arn Anderson: And you lost to most of them.. Bret Hart, Bill Goldberg, Randy Savage.. And you took it personal, Taz. You could never look at it as competition.. You took it personal and you dwelled on it. You always say I screwed you at Heartbreaker, but that wasn't the case.. The fact is, Taz, you just weren't good enough to get the job done.. You weren't SGW World Title material..

-[[ Anderson's voice is dripping with the intention of trying to make Taz hit him. ]]-

Arn Anderson: And that's why I couldn't let you have that title.. Solid Gold Wrestling didn't want a champion like you, Taz!! They wanted real champions!! Champions that didn't have to wrestle hardcore to get recognized!! They wanted Hart!! Bret Hart was the best wrestler to ever hold that world title!! Do you think I was going to stand by and let you crush everything he built? He carried SGW on his shoulders and all you wanted was to DESTROY IT!!

-[[ Taz can not believe he is hearing this. ]]-

Arn Anderson: And now, my baby's back. SGW is back and so are you, waiting in the wings to piss on all these years of history that REAL WRESTLERS have worked so hard to put together... Shane McMahon wouldn't have had the guts to do what I did to you, but Shane McMahon doesn't appreciate the history like I do!! I built SGW, Taz, can't you see that!? I couldn't let him... Let you... Ruin it...

-[[ It dawns on Taz and you can see it in his face. ]]-

TAZ: You did that to McMahon!? YOU YELLA' BASTARD!!

Arn Anderson: Taz.. How could I let you go on to win the world title here and now, when you're still fighting Bret Hart at Heartbreaker every single time you come to the ring? You never beat Hart and it eats you alive inside..

-[[ The fans turn on Anderson decisively now. ]]-

Arn Anderson: You never beat him and you never will... SGW doesn't need a champion with demons like yours.. You need to learn when to let things go.. When to separate your dreams from REALITY..... PETER.

-[[ The fans let out a collective "OHHHHHHHHH!!!" and it looks like Taz is finally going to blow. Anderson looks away finally.. Looking, not really at the fans, but through them. The fans begin booing extremely loud for some reason.]]-

Arn Anderson: And no.. I didn't.. Do that... to Shane McMahon.. He did.

-[[ Anderson nods behind Taz, and Taz turns around, in the heat of the moment, it was only the fans and Anderson that saw VAL VENIS get in the ring behind Taz. ]]-

TAZ: .....Da' fuck?

-[[ Venis nails Taz in the face with a stiff forearm, knocking him down on his back!! Venis gets down on Taz and begins hitting him hard about the face and neck!! Taz, still not one hundred precent from the tire iron shots from last week, is virtually helpless!! Venis pulls Taz back to his feet and drives him into the mat hard with a SPINE BUSTER!! Venis stands over him for a few seconds and Anderson motions for Venis to go up top!! Venis goes to the top rope and lands the MONEY SHOT right on Taz!! The fans are booing so loud that you can't hear anything else. Anderson and Venis leave the ring, as Taz contorts in pain. How the hell can he fight Steve Corino in his condition!? ]]-

The Brooklyn Brawler makes the save!! The Brawler pounds Triple H across the back, but Triple H turns around and casually dumps him over the top rope. Haas recovers enough to tag in The Rock, and the Rock is a house of fire all over Triple H. The Rock whips him into the ropes and Jeff Jarrett makes a blind tag. Jarrett's in and he clotheslines the Rock right in the face!! Jarrett whips The Rock into the turnbuckle and follows him in with a running knee!! The Rock tags in Haas and Haas walks right into the stroke like a fool and Jarrett covers him!! One!! Two!! Triple H makes the save!! Douglas is in now to get involved and Douglas and Triple H brawl to the outside!! The Rock gets in and he's headed off by the Brawler, they brawl on the mat, and the referee is distracted big time!!

-[[ The scene fades up with a doctor shining a flashlight in Taz's eye. ]]-

SGW Medic: You're not going out there. The concussion is worse, you shouldn't have even tried to wrestle in the first place.

TAZ: Bullshit.. That's bullshit... I am going to KILL those mutha' fuckers!!

-[[ The medic tries to tell him with genuine concern. ]]-

SGW Medic: Peter--

-[[ Taz slaps him hard across the face. The medic goes down and looks incredibly scared. ]]-

And when I'm done addin' bodies to da' pile, you're gonna be lookin' at the NEW SGDUBYA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!!!

SGW Medic: In your condition, Taz, you could DIE if you take a bad shot to the head!!

-[[ Taz walks out as the medic looks on. ]]-

-[[ The scene opens up with a shot of various objects hitting the wall of the locker room. Gear, a monitor, the camera pans around to reveal that it's Elix Skipper who is doing the damage!! Lance Storm looks on disapprovingly. ]]-

Lance Storm: You're wasting your time with this outburst.

Elix Skipper: Man, forget that, I got screwed over!! I didn't even get pinned an' I lost!? I ain't gettin' my shot at the world title, baby!! Don't they know this is all about Prime Time!? I BUILT THIS HOUSE!!

-[[ Skipper throws his arms out to the side as if he's looking for praise. ]]-

Elix Skipper: SGW is the house Prime Time built, baby!!

Lance Storm: You lost focus of your goal, Elix. When you stop caring about wrestling and worrying about your ego, you're destined for failure.

Elix Skipper: I ain't no failure, man, they screwed me over!! They don't want the best goin' to the top because once Prime Time's there, they ain't no room for nobody else!!

-[[ A voice echoes behind them. ]]-

Voice: Oh, boo hoo, why don'che feed that bullshit to somebody that's buyin'!! Ha ha!!

-[[ They turn around and see JOHN BRADSHAW LAYFIELD!! In his full suit and tie, he approaches them with a big smile on his face. ]]-

John Bradshaw Layfield: Ya' didn't lose because ye' got screwed, boy.. Ya' lost because people like you weren't meant to hold gold in an establishment like Solid Gold!!

-[[ Bradshaw laughs and Skipper looks like he can't believe he said that. ]]-

Elix Skipper: People like me? You mean someone as talented as charismatic as I am?

John Bradshaw Layfield: Ha ha... O'course, kid.. O'course that's what I mean. The main events ain't ready for ya'.. The main events of SGWx were made for real stars like me... J-B-L!

-[[ Bradshaw smiles real big and straightens his jacket. ]]-

John Bradshaw Layfield: But there's a rumor goin' around, son.. A rumor 'at says Arn Anderson's havin' a United States Title tournament comin' up.. Startin' next week, actually, and he's already got you entered in it... And guess who you're first round opponent is? Well, 'at'd be me!

-[[ Skipper doesn't lose his cocky demeanor. ]]-

John Bradshaw Layfield: So, I'll see ya' next week, son, and after that, I'll see ya' in dark matches, 'cause that's where, ha ha, your kind belongs.

Elix Skipper: Why would dark matches be where the best in the business belong?

Cyrus the Virus: Chavo, Rhyno already has merchandise.... He doesn't have to sign it.

-[[ Cyrus indicates the blanks where Chavo has to sign his name. ]]-

Cyrus the Virus: Just sign here, here, and here....... And here and here and here.

-[[ The scene opens up in a skybox overseeing the ring. Val Venis looks down at the ring, Stacy Keibler standing next to him, on his arm. Arn Anderson and Eric Bischoff are discussing business over to the side. ]]-

Val Venis: This is going to be mine soon. All of it, in the palm of my hand.

-[[ Stacy looks up at Val, but he doesn't bother returning the look. He has more important things on his mind. ]]-

Val Venis: I've been chosen by Anderson... To lead Solid Gold Wrestling into a new era.. To begin writing the new chapter.. Solid Gold Wrestling was his brainchild, his CREATION!! It should be him that chooses who steps up and take the reigns.. He never chose Shane McMahon.. McMahon came in like his father and took everything he wanted.. Anderson gave him a chance but that wasn't enough..

Stacy Keibler: It's never enough.. The McMahons only want to take, just like all of the... Lower talent in SGWx are dying to take and take and take away from you....

Val Venis: Yes.. Just like McMahon, they want to take.. Exploit the SGW name for their personal gain... But that won't happen now that Anderson has named the heir to his Solid Gold crown....

-[[ Stacy's eyes grow wide with surprise. ]]-

Stacy Keibler: Val? Are you serious!?

Flair walks straight to Anderson. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Ric...

Ric Flair: Arn...

Arn Anderson: It's good to see you.

-[[ Ric Flair doesn't want to chit chat. He cuts Arn's hospitality off. ]]-

Ric Flair: What're you thinkin', Arn? What are you thinkin'?

Arn Anderson: What are you talking about, Ric?

Ric Flair: You know damn well what I'm talkin' about, pal.. What you're doin' with SGW. Stirrin' up trouble with Taz, this isn't like you at all.. The Arn Anderson I know wouldn't be pullin' this kind o'stunt.. I know we did some things in our time with the Horsemen.. We beat down a lot o'guys, but we did it to establish dominance.. We did it for titles and wooooo did we ever win'em!! AND THE LADIES!! Arn, we did it because it got us ahead in the business!!

-[[ Anderson just stares at Flair, dead cold. Flair sees this and decides to go into overdrive. ]]-

Ric Flair: Ya' made Solid Gold Wrestlin', Arn.. Ya' made it, you're a pioneer, baby, and that's how everyone's always gonna see ya'.. Don't matter if Shane McMahon owns it now because people don't think about Solid Gold without thinkin' about ol' DOUBLE A!! For years, you stayed in the background of SGW!! You let the talent get the name over to the point that the name started gettin' the talent over!! We beat up people to go to the top, YOU'RE ALREADY ON TOP!! YOU!! ARE ALREADY!! ON TOP!!!

Ric Flair: WHADDAYA GOT TO PROVE!? That you still got it in the ring!? You're not a wrestler anymore!! Stand back!! Get out of the spotlight!! You took out Shane McMahon!! WHY!?! To show you still got it as owner of SGW!? Fine!! You attacked Taz!! WHY!?! Because he wants the world title!? What's that got to do with you!? SGW has always been about the BEST, if he's the best, he'll get the belt because he deserves it!! If he's not the best, then what do you have to worry about!?

-[[ Venis finally approaches the situation, standing beside Anderson as Flair goes on. ]]-

Ric Flair: You're disgracin' SGW's name!! Why do ya' wanna do that to your own creation!? Every time you hit Taz with a tire iron, you're sayin' no one else in that tournament has a chance against Taz!! You're sayin' Taz is gonna clean house and walk out with that belt for sure!! You say SGW is about the best but ya' make it sound like Taz is a one man show!! AND I!! AM!! SICK OF IT, BUSTER!!

-[[ Val steps in front of Anderson. ]]-

Val Venis: Watch it, I don't think you know who you're talking to.

-[[ Flair looks taken aback by this. He explodes. ]]-

Ric Flair: I don't know who I'm talkin' to!? YOU'RE RIGHT!! WHO THE HELL ARE YOU!? Don't look at me like that, tough guy, I know exactly who I am!! I'M RIC FLAIR!!!! I'm a wrestling legend!! Seventeen time world WOOOOOOOO Heavyweight champion!! I've had more world titles than you've had pieces of ass!!

-[[ Venis looks ready to go, but Anderson puts an arm out and pulls Venis back a step. ]]-

Ric Flair: YOU UNDERESTIMATE THE NATURE BOY, ARN!! Ya' think Taz has it all wrapped up but you forget about.. THE MAN!! I'm gonna win that damn belt, and there's not a damn thing anybody's gonna do about it!!

-[[ Anderson puts his hand on Ric's shoulder. ]]-

Arn Anderson: Ric..... It's okay.

-[[ Ric looks confused now. ]]-

Arn Anderson: You're my friend.. I requested that you be let into SGWx personally... I'll take care of you..

-[[ Anderson's voice is scarily sincere. ]]-

Arn Anderson: ...Just like I always have.

-[[ The scene cuts as Flair looks shocked. ]]-
