The scene is a simple white backdrop with two empty stools. From each side of the camera view, Wendy “Zombie” Pellegrini and Katrina “Hairicin” Knox come in and sit down on the stools. They’re looking around, Zombie leans over as if trying to see something beyond the camera as Hairicin fixes her hair.
Voice off-camera: We’re rolling whenever you two want to start.
Zombie: Welcome Mile High fans, for those who don’t know me, my name is Wendy “Zombie” Pellegrini. This Groot-like woman beside me is Katrina “Hairicin” Knox, collectively known as The Purge, and this coming Sunday, we are coming BACK to Denver, back to where I essentially started my wrestling career, and Robert Mack being as charming as always, decided to pit the two of us against fellow Shieldmaidens Jackie “Bandit” Layton and Saorise “Psycho” Maguire. And honestly, if you asked them, they’d say the same thing. We’re excited, we’re not going to pull any punches or give no quarter, because, at the end of the day, it’s YOU guys who matter most.
Hairicin: So we’re not going to talk about what’s different from the last night we were in Mile High?
Zombie: What changes?
Hairicin: The fact you’re less butchy-looking.
Zombie’s eyes narrow as she turns to her tag partner, and gets into a standoffish position, arms crossed.
Zombie: You think I was butchy-looking? Look at you. Your arms are bigger than my head and even bigger than they used to be.
Hairicin: I’ve been training. It’s kinda what I do. You thinned out, toned up, look better than ever. Before, you were… I mean, you were fine then. You’re just better now.
Zombie slowly shakes her head and turns to face the camera again. Hairicin smirks at the camera as Zombie isn’t looking.
Zombie: Anyways, we’re not going to sit here and run down our opponents. We’re family, actually, some are more family than others. You brought up changes earlier, you married Aoife, who’s Sorsh’s sister.
Hairicin holds up her left hand to the camera to show off her wedding ring.
Zombie: What has she said about this match?
Hairicin: She understands the business, obviously. She’s staying impartial for many reasons. It’s Shieldmaidens against Shieldmaidens, sisters-in-law colliding, and she knows we’re going to throw everything at each other. Just, I’m sure you’ve noticed this, but I figured I’d mention it.
Zombie: What’s that?
Hairicin: We’re going to spend our time looking down.
Hairicin bites her tongue and smiles sheepishly.
Zombie: We do that when Krigare’s around.
Hairicin: This is true, and it won’t be as hard on our necks looking at them as it is looking at Eavan. I mean she’s REALLY short.
Zombie points to Hairicin while trying to look innocent and trying not to laugh.
Zombie: You seeing this, E? She said it, I didn’t.
Hairicin: You thought it too.
Zombie: You said it, I’m innocent this time.
This time, Hairicin adopts the standoffish position as she turns to face Zombie.
Hairicin: Yeah, well, I’m not the one who was chased by Tyke Index because he wanted to go out with you.
Zombie slowly turns to face Hairicin as Hairicin winks at the camera. Zombie gets up off her stool and leans in close to Hairicin.
Zombie: That was low. And ew.
Hairicin: Hit a nerve, did I?
Zombie sits down again, as Hairicin sticks her tongue out at Zombie without Zombie noticing again.
Voice off-camera: What do you guys think about the returns to Mile High, and the fact a couple hasn’t returned?
Zombie: Who hasn’t returned?
Voice off-camera: Skrabz, Jansen Myrrh, Titaness?
Zombie: Damn, those are big names. Myrrh and I had a series of matches that put the ThrowDown Championship probably on par, if not above, the Ultimate Championship. I’ll admit she frustrated the piss out of me at the time and I likely said some things that weren’t the most professional or flattering then, but honestly, the woman is legit. Skrabz, I fought my second match with the company, and with clear hindsight, I think Mack was testing me to see how I would fare with the top people, and I still believe out of Skrabz matches during that run, I was one of the closest people to beat him. I’m not surprised he didn’t re-sign because he’s beaten everyone in the company, he has nothing to prove anymore. Special K, that’s my nickname for Eavan, I know she ran her mouth and tried to bait Skrabz into returning, but you have to understand, Krigare is crazy.
Hairicin: Titaness? She’s a hard one to read. She doesn’t come down to the Compound as much as before, she’s up in New York I think, living her life, focusing her wrestling energies elsewhere. Maybe she’ll be back, who knows. It’d be awesome to see her, get the family all together under one roof again.
Voice off-camera: With the two of you returning together, will Mile High be seeing you guys in singles actions or strictly tag? You did singles matches in Mile High and EWC, a former ThrowDown Champion here, and you have both been having singles matches in WWA.
Zombie: Definitely both. Harry here is a beast. She’s big, but she can move. I’ve altered my style a bit. We’re as comfortable standing on our own as we are teaming together. We’ve built a style that meshes well, and we’ve learned to adapt in a singles environment. We’ve been training with the Kenyons lately. The gym Lexa and I own is closed due to this whole pandemic thing but we’ve worked something out with the Kenyons and it’s a win-win situation. We’ve had to adapt as everyone has with this Covid shit, this is the new reality.
Hairicin: Absolutely. It hasn’t been an easy transition, it took time to sort out a lot of things, but we’re here, we’re ready, we’re all safe. I’m excited to show the world what we can do, whether it’s with the Purge or solo.
Voice off-camera: There was a poll conducted recently about who the fans thought would be the next Ultimate Champion, with the winner being Azurine Vebbins. What’s your take on that?
Zombie: She’s definitely somebody who walks to the beat of their own drummer, and I’ve been in the ring with her, won one and lost one, girl’s tough. If you get wrapped up in the superficial with her, you’ll underestimate her and she’ll eat you alive. I did it, I should have known better, and she schooled me. The next time we fought, I won. She’s one of a kind, and honestly, I think the praise she receives is earned. Will she be Ultimate Champion one day? Most likely, yeah. I think Azzy’s going to have a hard time in the ring with Krigare, but should Azzy pull off the win in that match, she’ll definitely be one of the top contenders.
Voice off-camera: Hairicin, I’m sure you’ve researched the roster, do you have any possible standouts in your opinion?
Hairicin: Well, obviously Bullet, who’s more focused now than she’s ever been. Things have cooled down a lot with our outside activities so she can better devote her time and energy in the ring. Hell, any of the Maidens but that’s an easy answer. It’s really hard to say because we’re not coming in with any bigger chips on our shoulders. We respect everyone, and we want to see the company succeed. If I had to pick somebody non-Shieldmaiden, I don’t even think he’s re-signing but I hope he does, and that’s Gabriel Ohio. Already signed? I’m going to shout out Chris Mosh because he’s been overlooked a lot and I think he’s on that brink or finally breaking through.
Zombie: Well, Mosh IS the VIP, right? My pick is Krigare, as much as it may come across as biased. The woman has had a tough life, been in the business going on her tenth year, and she wants another title run before she hangs up the boots at the end of the year.
Voice off-camera: What are your aspirations this time around?
Zombie: Well, if the ThrowDown Title returns, I'd like that back. And being former tag champs in WWA, being able to say The Purge are tag champs here would be cool.
Hairicin: What if you and I ended up fighting for a title down the road? Think you can beat me?
Hairicin sticks her tongue out directly at Zombie before Zombie sticks her palm out in Hairicin's face.
Zombie: Well duh, I have more experience than you.
Hairicin: I can toss you like a rag doll.
Zombie: I can keep you on the ground and beat the crap out of you.
Hairicin: If you can catch me, and I can hit you from anywhere.
As the two get up to get into each other's faces, they break out in laughter before playfully shoving each other back to their stools and sit down.
Zombie: Honestly, though, that's a tough question to answer because we know each other so well, we mesh well, and we know the other's strengths and weaknesses. Either way, it'd be fun.
Voice off-camera: What's your strategy against your opponents this Sunday?
Hairicin: Definitely watching out for Sorsh's kicks as they are deadly. I've caught a few and had to get a tooth fixed because of it.
Zombie: Bandit's small but she's feisty. Stronger than she looks, explosive attacks. Definitely, one that will need to take a lot of damage to be slowed down It'll actually be pretty cool to show off to an audience as opposed to training. Whether it's us or them who get the W, it's a win for the Shieldmaidens.
Hairicin: Hell be empty and the Shieldmaidens are here! Z, Z, do your catchphrase. It's been too long since you've said it.
Zombie shakes her head, trying to contain her laughter from Hairicin's enthusiasm. She lifts her head, looking sternly into the camera.
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 Booker Office The Barn Belle Chasse, Louisiana 9:12 PM CDT
From the outside, it looks like an old barn in the middle of nowhere. A relic of an attempt at something that never really belonged even in a bygone time. Nobody really understood why the structure was there or even why it remained, just that a man named Morton had tried to build some kind of farm here a long time ago and it had not gone well for him. The story of the place varied depending on who you asked simply because of the passage of time and the fact that Morton had no descendents left in the area to hold the lore of the place sacred enough to correct all the rumors and innuendo that had arisen up around it.
The Barn had entered local folklore.
A thousand different stories had been dreamed up by people over the years, every one of them trying to explain why there was a gigantic old barn in the middle of an area where farming would just not work. Whatever it had been intended to be used to store had been lost to historical fact. Now it was used for other things.
Jackie “Bandit” Layton had come across the building in 2019 while looking for opportunities for the Shieldmaidens and Chrome Dragons MCs and had arranged to purchase it and restore it so that it could be used even just as a building. Rousing games of “Barnball”, indoor basketball games, were a usual activity during the day while raucous parties on the weekends meant the place had taken a new place in the hearts of locals. In the last year, Tuesdays ahd become a new reason for people to love the Barn even more.
Tuesdays were Fight Nights.
Organized by “Psycho” Saoirse Maguire and Aoife “Banshee” Maguire-Knox, the fights had started as low key contests between a few local toughs and a couple of the Chrome Dragons. Todd “Dammit” Warren, Davis “Doomsday” Delacio and Donnie “Devastator” Samuelsson, who had all worked in setting up illegal fights like this with the Maguire Sisters’ late brother, Shonn, had all taken part and helped regulate the crowds. Before long, the fights became more organized and even people like cartel enforce Benny Aguilar, Russian muscle Sergei Fetisov, the two top guys in the Congo Square Tribe, Manu Reyes and Johnny “Sylenz” Basil, had all taken part in the contests.
Other factions soon started attending as well and this opened another door that needed seeing to, gambling. Quickly, contacts were made with local law enforcement and several licenses were obtained to allow the event to look as legitimate as they needed to in order to go forward. To some, it didn’t matter if everything wasn’t exactly according to the letter or spirit of the law. The Barn was bigger than that stuff.
Tonight would be no different.
Standing next to her wife, fellow Shieldmaiden Becca “Bruiser” Maguire, Psycho looks over the gathering crowd and nods to herself.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Looks tae bae a full house t’night…
Bruiser nods almost absently. She was paying more attention to the security concerns.
BBM: We got any big fuckin’ names tonight? You know there’s always action when Fetisov or one of his boys fights. Aguilar and his cartel cronies, same thing. [/font]
Psycho glances own at her fight list.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: I know Fetisov kinna make it t’night. He bae busy fer next waek as well.
Bruiser nods stiffly.
BBM: Aguilar? [/font]
Psycho shakes her head.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: He made a fanny o’ th’ otter guy last waek.
As Bruiser starts to nod again, Psycho’s sister, Banshee, comes walking up with a concerned look on her face.
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: I tink we’re gonna bae havin’ a problem, Lass.
Psycho and Bruiser turn to face Banshee, confusion on both of their faces.
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: We’ve got some fighters tha havena checked in yet. I know this wouldna usually bae a problem but it bae a pair o’ girls tha havana ever baen late baefore.
Psycho nods knowingly.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: How daep in th’ card are we talkin’ haer?
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: Midrange…
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, lemme go talk tae King an’ get this sorted. Ye bae gettin’ back tae th’ fighters an’ make certain they bae ready tae go. Wit a crowd this size, we’ll bae happy tae have 3-D haer!
The three Maguire women all nod to each other and head off in different directions, Bruiser to check on the security of the place while Banshee heads back to the fighters readying area. Psycho walks back to the office where she finds two more Maidens, Kerry “King” Romero and Sylvia “Silk” Pietras. Psycho nods to both of them.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Havin’ a go at sumtin’ different then, Silk?
Silk just smiles.
Sylvia "Silk" Pietras: They’re havin’ a big old “Magic Mike” themed show at the Bras d’Or tonight and Shadow’s fightin’ tonight and you know I couldn’t miss that, Sugar!
King shakes her head.
Kerry "King" Romero: Fuck, now I kinda wish I had stayed there!
Sylvia "Silk" Pietras: Y’all know it’ll be a humdinger of a show with the talent they found!
King shakes her head again at the thought of five hot guys all gyrating on stage simultaneously and starts fanning herself.
Kerry "King" Romero: Shit…
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, though I’m happy tha ye bae haer, Lass. Ye tink ye could find two more female fighters on short notice? We bae havin’ a couple of no-shows.
Kerry "King" Romero: You know I can… gimme ten minutes…
King ducks back into the office and quickly starts making calls. As she does so, Silk frowns.
Sylvia "Silk" Pietras: Wasn’t Shadow’s opponent was it? She’s been lookin’ forward to this for a month!
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Her fight’s still on.
She allows herself a small smile, a chuckle escaping whether she wants it to or not.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Gettin’ some good action on tha fight as well. She bae a hot commodity it saems.
Silk smiles in return.
Sylvia "Silk" Pietras: That’s my baby!
She pauses and quickly pulls out her own phone.
Sylvia "Silk" Pietras: I should lay a couple of bucks before the odds go to shit. My baby gonna whoop dat ass and gonna make us be eatin’ good in the process!
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: I know tha faelin’, Lass!
A minute later, King steps back out of the office.
Kerry "King" Romero: I got ya two more fighters and rides to make sure they make it. The one lives next door to the bakeshop so Cross has her in the delivery truck already. He was making a cake delivery out here anyway so that worked out perfectly. Queenie’s got the other one. They’ll both be here in fifteen, no sweat!
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Thankye, King! Much obliged…
Psycho turns and walks off back towards the fighter arena. Looking down at her phone, she nods as the money rolls in on the fights.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Begorra, an’ they dinna aeven bae known whot sum o’ them bae lookin’ like yet…
As she comes to the corner, Banshee is making the last couple of marks on her sheet.
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: An’ tha bae tha…
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: We bae good then?
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: Queenie an’ Firefly brought in th’ last one a minute ago. Cross an’ Cisco got haer jess baefore. Fights kin bae startin’ ennytime now.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Jess like wit Shonn…
Banshee nods, smiling as well.
Aoife "Banshee" Maguire: Aye, jess like wit Shonn.
The two sisters turn and take it all in as their night of fights and earnings gets ready to begin.
Wednesday, May 12, 2021 Back Room Bras d’Or New Orleans, Louisiana 6:45 PM CDT
The room was lit by several overhead kitchen-style fluorescent ceiling lights that had been converted to LED lights so as not to worry about handling the old bulbs. Nominal owner of the building and Managing General Partner of the Bras d’Or, Jackie “Bandit” Layton, sits in the outer hallway near the rooms that are usually empty with her three sisters, twenty-five-year-old Tommie Douglas, twenty-year-old Corrie Layton and nineteen-year-old Tammy Mulcair: my Mulcair. Wednesday was usually a big night headlined by their star attraction, Sylvia “Silk” Pietras, and tonight that was doubly true as Silk had managed to talk fellow Shiledmaiden Aoife “Banshee” Maguire-Knox into dancing with her in an almost tribute to body art type show. Silk had even taken a run at getting Banshee’s sister, “Psycho” Saoirse Maguire and Psycho’s wife, Becca “Bruiser” Maguire, to dance well given their plethora of tattoos but both had demurred.
Bruiser was not surprising.
Psycho was slightly.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: So, do we have everything ready for tonight?
This was to be the first big show without usual talent coordinator Tori Carter involved as she was still in jail from the bogus charge regarding her daughter, Rose. Tommie had slotted into her spot with Tammy Mulcair: my and Corrie trying to make up for the fact that Banshee was not there to act as the assistant due to being booked on the show herself.
Tommie Douglas: I think almost everybody has arrived.
Corrie looks up.
Corrie Layton: Mox said we had everything stacked, stocked and ready to go for the bar so we should be good there. The other rooms have their line-ups.
Tammy Mulcair: my checks her phone.
Tammy Mulcair: : We got one no show so far. I’ve tried calling but she’s relatively new so I have no idea if this is usual for her or not.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Try one more time. If she doesn’t answer in the next twenty minutes, find a back-up and give them an appearance bonus for saving our ass on short notice.
She glances around the room at the other three blonde women and almost shakes her head at the sight of them all working together.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Tommie, go get everyone ready. Corrie, go check the side room guys. Some of them can be little divas and if you need help, Killer and Taza are here and Killer’s in a mood over Tori. If you have any problems that require persuasion, you find me. If they require force, find Killer.
Tommie and Corrie nod and then head off towards their respective dressing room responsibilities. Tammy Mulcair: my tries the phone and almost immediately shakes her head.
Tammy Mulcair: : Right to voicemail again…
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: It’s alright, this stuff happens. It’s not your fault someone doesn’t want to answer their phone.
Tammy Mulcair: my nods sadly.
Tammy Mulcair: : Yeah…
Bandit squeezes her sister’s shoulder.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: I know it feels like you’re falling short, but you’re not. You’re doing great here, Tammy Mulcair: . Eef and Tori are big shoes to fill even for one night and you, Cor and Tommie are pulling it off.
Tammy Mulcair: my nods sadly.
Tammy Mulcair: : I know, I just…
She shakes her head.
Tammy Mulcair: : With Dad dying and that…
Waving her hand, she nods to the side door that exits out to the street.
Tammy Mulcair: : Whatever that was that Shadow and Khary stopped the other night and now Tori and her problem, I just… I don’t wanna add to the problems, you know?
Bandit nods and embraces her sister.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: It’s alright, Tammy Mulcair: . Just take a break and see how you’re doing here. You’re getting the job done. The show is going off as if nothing happened and that’s all you, Tommie and Corrie. You guys are picking up the slack caused by the bullshit. But even if you weren't, even if you were dropping the ball and everything was falling to hell, we’d all still love you, Tammy Mulcair: my. We’re not sending you away. We’re family and there’s nothing you can ever do or fail at to change that. Do you hear me?
Nodding, Tammy Mulcair: my bursts into tears. Bandit holds her close.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Your mom would be proud of you.
Tammy Mulcair: my nods and separates to wipe her eyes.
Tammy Mulcair: : I’m sorry, I just…
Bandit shakes her head.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: You have nothing to be sorry for, Tammy Mulcair: .
Tammy Mulcair: my takes a second to compose herself and then nods.
Tammy Mulcair: : Thank you, Jackie. For everything.
Bandit nods and Tammy Mulcair: my stands, pulling her phone out.
Tammy Mulcair: : Five minutes and then I start looking for a replacement.
She heads off leaving Bandit momentarily alone. The solitude lasts barely a second before Kimi “Shadow” Kojima walks in sporting a black eye from her fight the night before. Seeing the mark on her face, Bandit smirks.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: I hear the other girl looks ten times worse.
Shadow stops in her tracks, stunned at the words coming out of Bandit’s mouth. Bandit snickers.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Silk was proud and couldn’t wait to tell everyone how much money you made while kicking ass last night.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: She is too good to me.
Shadow walks over and sits down next to Bandit.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: Do you think it would be a problem to transfer charters?
Bandit’s smile grows.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: You want to come here?
Shadow nods, slowly, cautiously.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: For Silk?
Again, Shadow nods slowly, cautiously. Bandit nods to herself.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Does she know?
Shadow looks to the floor.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: I…
Bandit leans forward.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: You know she loves you…
Shadow remains absolutely still, as if caught completely unprepared by Bandit’s statement.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: And I, her…
She pauses, slowly managing to look up.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: Will Bullet allow it?
Bandit almost laughs.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Ale and Fenris will be happy with whatever decision you make. Hell, Snow might even be able to help you on that. She wants to go out to California but she’s afraid it’ll hurt her chances for a full patch. But if you effectively trade spots with her…
For a second, Shadow almost looks excited. Then, her fear blows back in again.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: I will ask Silk tonight. I want to come here and live openly with her.
This time, it’s Bandit’s turn to be caught unprepared.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Wow… I can’t think of anything that would make her happier than you coming here and coming out... for her.
Shadow inhales deeply.
Kimi "Shadow" Kojima: You will help me ask Bullet?
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Ask? Shit, I’ll make the motion myself!
Friday, May 14, 2021 Warehouse Gym Shieldmaidens Clubhouse New Orleans, Louisiana 7:41 PM CDT
The camera opens on the members of ST, Jackie “Bandit” Layton and “Psycho” Saoirse Maguire standing next to each other under the now familiar and perhaps infamous black Shieldmaidens banner with the whte lettering hanging on the wall of their warehouse gym. Both women are decked out in matching ensembles, black boots, black jeans, black homemade ST t-shirts with the letters just smeared across the shirt in blue and white on Bandit’s shirt and green and orange on Psycho’s. Their Shieldmaidens’ kuttes complete the look, both nodding to the camera.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, this bae a strange one, Lass.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Yeah, I can understand that. We're fighting in a company that was supposed to be dead, against people who we not only like, but we call sister in Zombie and Harry…
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, some o’ us literally considerin’ Harry married me sister fer.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: On top of that, we’ve never been a team here, the Purge has never been a team here, we’ve never fought each other and Harry’s never been active outside of WWA, much less here. The four of us walk into this match, three of us having been champions here while the fourth is looking to show everybody why, motherfucker, the Maidens don’t die, we fucking multiply!
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, kin ye bae imaginin’ whot people bae sayin’ if we brought everybody tha likes tae fight haer tae Mile High wit us?
Bandit almost laughs.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Tyke Index and Chris Mosh would both drop dead because their balls turned a navy shade of blue at having to look at all of us!
Smirking in kind, Psycho nods her agreement.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: It might aeven call out tae Gabriel Ohio…
She pauses and nods in acknowledgement.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Though, Chris Mosh bae doin’ tha on his own well enough.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: No one ever mistook Mosh for a genius. God knows the way he used to handle things here with Ripley told us all we needed to know about that boy and his way of thinking sometimes.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye an’ then Hybrid made him look like he bae tryin’ tae stael me name right of me kutte!
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Man has all the talent in the world, but let’s be honest, he never wants to put the work in. He’s the male version of the Page Sisters and the Pretty Committee. If he put half the time working to win as he does talking out his ass, he’d be fucking unbeatable! But no, that’s too much to ask so he talks like he’s a big shot and just hopes nobody notices there’s really nothing behind the words at all!
Psycho snickers again.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, but we’ve given him enough attention fer th’ day. He bae me wife’s problem…
Bandit grits her teeth.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Bruiser’s gonna beat that ass something fierce if he says word one to her, same way Ale, KC, Zombie, Harry, Eav, you or I would!
Unable to argue with her friend’s logic, Psycho simply nods in response.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, Aoife would likely as well…
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: That’d be a hell of a welcome to the world of wrestling, Eef. Deal with this pissant while the rest of us fight people who actually try! Like Mosh should fucking take notes on how we, Zombie and Harry are gonna do against each other ehre! We’re sisters, family, as Ale says, parche, but are we going to half ass this just because of that?
Psycho rolls her eyes at the very thought.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Begorra, what a bunch o’ bullshite tha would bae! Only gammy batards tha kinna bae arsed tae put in aeven a tiny bit o’ work would bae doin’ tha when they bae knowin whot bae comin’ fer them th’ way we do!
Bandit nods pointedly.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Everyone knows that watches Mile High what we’re staring down in Zombie. They’ve all seen it, they’ve all watched what she can do. They watched her walk in, march her happy ass to a championship and then make believers out of every fucking person in this company that Zombie was not somebody to be fucked with! I thank God every day that we basically stole her away from another group and think they should feel just a little bit diminished for having lost her, but that’s not really the point here. The point is that we know Zombie is gonna come into this match ready to show Mile High that she has lost nothing in the interim between Throwdowns and has, in fact, gained some!
Psycho nods just as pointedly.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, an’ whot better way bae there tae show tha than tae brin’ it right ate two o’ her sister Maidens tha have bote baen champions haer in Mile High as well?
Bandit and Psycho shift, no longer playful at all.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: So knowing what to expect from Zombie, the real wildcard hee is Harry. For those of you who don’t know, Katrina Knox is married to Sorsh’s sister, Aoife. Katrina served as Aoife’s bodyguard in several places before she went pro herself alongside Zombie and Eav in WWA and she took a nickname with her that came straight out of New Orleans. We call her Harry, which is short for Hairicin, the Irish word for Hurricane and let me tell you motherfuckers, Hurricane Knox lives up to her name every chance she gets! Some would make a joke about that making her a blowhard but they miss the fucking point entirely. See, Chris Mosh is a blowhard that when you get down to it, yeah, the wind is blowing but it’s not really going to do anything because it has no direction to it. It’s pointless hot air that really doesn’t have much on it at all.
A pause and Bandit inhales sharply.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: Hurricane Knox is living fucking proof that it’s not that the wind is blowing, it’s what it’s blowing and how hard! Hurricane Knox can come at you from any direction and sometimes multiple at once and when she does it’s like getting hit with a damn Volvo or an old school Buick. The kind that were like tanks with windows. Trust me when I tell you, that Hurricane is not just blowing out a lot of hot air and you better be paying attention because if you’re not...
She nods and Psycho takes over.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Ye bae wishin’ she only hit ye wit tha Volvo once!
Bandit nods her agreement.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: So what does that mean for us?
She moves her hand to indicate both herself and Psycho.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: It means we have to come and remind you who we are too! I’m the bith that came in here with no fanfare at all and then grabbed the tag team division by the balls, squeezed, yanked and twisted until it begged for mercy and then started kicking it until it coughed up enough blood to qualify for emergency care! Whether I was teaming with Widow or with Sam, there was one constant in this company. When you looked at the top of the tag team division, you saw my face glaring back and daring everybody else to grow a set and come get some! New teams came in with starch in their britches and they ran out screaming, “Please don’t let the little barbie doll keep beating my ass!” I owned that division so much that eventually I was one of the people they threw in with Skrabz and there are still people who think I kicked his ass whether I walked out with the belt or not!
Psycho nods grimly.
"Psycho" Saoirse Maguire: Aye, an’ I bae th’ one tha walked in, looked up at almost everyone else in th’ comp’ny, knocked Gabriel Ohio wit one shot an’ then talked me way intae a hardcore title match tha th’ comp’ny had no intention o’ putin’ me in but gave me jess tae shut me up an’ I walked out the champion after backin’ it up!

The camera zooms in to frame the two better.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: So now we bring all of that history back to Mile High and we bring a Hurricane with us. What’s gonna happen when all of that collides?
She and Psycho both nod knowingly.
Jackie "Bandit" Layton: There’s gonna be a fucking mushroom cloud, that’s what’s gonna happen. Maidens don’t die easy, we die bloody… over and over again!
Admin: Where do yall hist photos? I'm thinking about switching sites, because I'm paying a monthly subscription for Photobucket and they got watermarks back on my images. I'm guessing it's a glitch or something, but it's already been two days.

The Purge: I use Imgur - and I've never paid a cent for their services, and no water marks

Deleted: o.o Lord, Rob! Get away from Photobucket ASAP! I’m with Haircin — use Imgur. It’s way better and costs nothing.

Admin: I appreciate yall! ✊💯💯 Ima look into it this week. Apologies to everyone if some of the images for the show tonight have that Photobucket watermark. I didn't have the time today obviously to make any switches. But I will make time this week. 💯💯

Admin: Katrina will probably be happy too as she was just telling me I was crazy for paying monthly for a photo host. Lol.

Admin: ***NOTE*** I moved the deadline up 12 hours to give the judges an extra day to read over the rps.

Admin: Started messing with Imgur today and confirmed to myself that Imgur was the original photo host I was using for Season One and the beginning of Season Two of MHW. Something made me mad and thats when I switched to Photobucket. I don't remember what though.
Aug 12, 2021 16:08:47 GMT -6
Admin: Ima still switch back to it though, because the Photobucker watermarks are still showing up on some images.
Aug 12, 2021 16:09:19 GMT -6
Admin: ***Just A Reminder*** The new deadline is less than 24 hours away. 💪💯💯

cmosh: Marisol Vilaró is Spanish, she is from Spain
Sept 14, 2021 22:50:17 GMT -6
Admin: Noted 💪💯💯 So I can get Rrina to teach me how to pronounce her name.
Sept 15, 2021 15:35:32 GMT -6
cmosh: Don't worry I don't know how to pronounce it either. She is actually played by someone else, so it is sometimes hard to do RP's with them due to our work schelduce but I am alound to use the character over here

Admin: Trying something different with the match writing, based off of research and just to try something new. It's a hit or miss concept, so feedback would be appreciated. ThrowDown will also debut the new layout concept. AMMO will start with that new layout...
Sept 18, 2021 8:35:55 GMT -6
Admin: ...on the following AMMO. This AMMO will just have the new match writing idea.

cmosh: I want to apologize to everyone for not doing a rp this week. Just been a tough week at work and other things got in the way as well, again I'm really sorry for not rping this week

Admin: It happens, brudda!
