Live to Fight Another Day
[Previously Recorded Footage]
Moving up the ramp and away from the ring is the Hollywood Bruvs. Mikey Unlikely was just laid out by Darren Zion in their tag team match, and rather than get pinned, Kendrix thought better of it, and pulls Mikey from the ring. The pair are counted out as the commentary team recaps the situation.
Nick Stuart: You have got to be kidding me.
Richard Parker: LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY BRUVS!
Turnbull shakes his head and counts The Hollywood Bruvs out.
As they come through the curtain to the backstage area, they seem relieved. That is until they stumble into the boss.
They stop dead in their tracks. Mikey’s arm still slung over JFK’s shoulder for support. They look up to find LT, arms crossed and a scowl on her face.
Lindsay Troy: Y’know….I’ve dealt with a lot of bullshit from you two over the last six, seven years. Frappes thrown on clothes. Title belts in glass cases. A roll of quarters to the side of the head.
She looks at Mikey Unlikely for that one, specifically. He looks away and whistles innocently.
Lindsay Troy: And as much fun as this latest bit has been for the both of you, the jig is up. There’s not gonna be any more new and inventive ways for you two to “quit” and get out of competing. Either you want to be here or you don’t. And if you don’t, then I have no problem showing you the door.
A beat. A smirk.
Lindsay Troy: Personally.
Kendrix eyes light up as he looks over at Mikey but his bruv shake his head.
Mikey Unlikely: Not that kind of door or personal service…
Kendrix hangs his head disappointedly before removing a scrunched up piece of paper and unscrunching it before the boss’ very eyes.
Kendrix: But we have a list of at least another 100 new and inventive ways to qui…
Mikey butts in just as Troy’s face is about to explode.
Mikey Unlikely: …Uh that’s right, a list to quickly prove to you just how much the Hollywood Bruvs want to be here in PRIME.
Jesse looks over at his tag partner in shock and removes his shoulder of support.
Not impressed in the slightest, Troy attempts to grab the list to see for herself but Mikey sees it coming and sticks it down his trunks.
Mikey Unlikely: You don’t need to see it, boss. It’s probably better we keep it a surprise. We know actions speak louder than words here, I’ve always said that!
Kendrix, of course, butts in now, trying to impress the boss lady.
Kendrix: Yeah, but I said it first.
Lindsay rolls her eyes at the duo. She’s seen and heard all this far too many times for her liking.
Lindsay Troy: Whatever. Your actions have been few and far between. So I’d better actually see something worthwhile in your next match, otherwise it’s over. And let me remind you that there’s no financial compensation due to either of you if I fire your asses, so cut the shit and start earning your paychecks.
Having made her point, Troy walks off leaving the Bruvs scratching their heads with much food for thought.
Kendrix: I thought we had the release clause?
Mikey Unlikely: Seriously, Jesse. That’s it. No more agents you meet in strip clubs. We‘re going back to Hollywood agents.
