ADAM ELLIS IS BACK
Back from commercial. Matt Mills is backstage with the returning Adam Ellis and his wife Ginny Van Lear.
Matt Mills: Adam. Welcome back.
Adam Ellis: Thank you, Matt. It‘s good to be back.
Matt Mills: You took a couple months off at the end of last year for some heavy-duty personal issues that arose.
Adam Ellis: That’s right. We lost Ginny’s dad and… yeah… With Lindsay Troy’s blessing, I decided it would be better to take the time off. I missed being here… being in the ring. But I wanted to stand by Ginny after her daddy passed and be there in her time of need.
Matt Mills: But you still missed being in the ring.
Adam Ellis: Oh yeah. I missed it a lot.
Matt Mills: This is your first PRIME match since October, but you were involved in a match in December at HOW.
Adam Ellis: I couldn’t wait to get back so much when an opportunity came up to take on GREAT SCOTT, I jumped at it- which in retrospect wasn’t a good decision on my part.
Matt Mills: You were a little rusty that night.
Adam Ellis: I was a LOT rusty that night. But again, I was desperate to get back into the ring and get back to it. Wasn’t my night.
Matt Mills: You also wrestled at Missouri Valley Wrestling’s Evening of Champions.
Adam Ellis: Yes. I wrestled Captain Jack there and did much better than I did against GREAT SCOTT. But Matt, every trip to the ring is a chance to learn something new and I learned of a bunch of things from the GREAT SCOTT experience and from wrestling Captain Jack.
Matt Mills: Speaking of experience, your first opponent of 2023 is one Jonathan-Christopher Hall and he is someone you’re already experienced in dealing with.
Adam Ellis: That’s right. When I successfully defended the MVW Men’s Title at the HOW Dead or Alive pay-per-view show against Darin Zion… Hall’s tag team partner in 2Become1… after the match Zion put me in the Love Handle Lock and both Jonathan-Christopher Hall and Vickie Hall attacked my wife at ringside.
Ginny leans in to say something.
Ginny Van Lear: Ah reckon it’s funny it took two of them t’keep lil’ ol’ me from helpin’ Adam out.
She nods her head and looks defiantly into the camera.
Ginny Van Lear: Just sayin’. Vickie…. Iffa I see ya at ringside… then you-en I ar’ gonna have a lil’ girl-to-girl talk.
Mills tries to steer the conversation back to the match itself.
Matt Mills: Adam, this will be a match between two wrestlers who really could use a win.
Adam Ellis: Yes. All I can say is I’ve trained hard… worked hard… and I’m ready to go. Can’t wait to get back in there against Jonathan-Christopher Hall tonight. I’ll do the best we can.
Matt Mills: All right. Thank you Adam Ellis.
We then cut to the ring.
