The scene switches to Vickie Hall who has commandeered a backstage camera.
Nick Stuart: So this is starting to be a thing…
Richard Parker: You mean Vickie taking matters into her own hands and stealing a camera for what feels like the fifth consecutive week? Let the girl dream, she can do whatever she wants.
Nick Staurt: There’s no way you enjoy any of this, I know you. There’s absolutely no way. You’re trying to annoy me.
As the announcers bicker, Vickie has walked herself to the atrium entrance of the Ball Arena where Jonathan-Christopher Hall stands in the center of it, handing out pamphlets to anyone around. There aren’t many people, since the fans have long drawn into their seats and the night is almost over. However, the odd fan passes by.
Vickie Hall: My Amazing Life Partner and I have been here the entire night handing out LOVE CONVOY leaflets. That’s right, as of the next ReVival, the LOVE CONVOY is back and in full effect but we are going to be managing things much differently.
Vickie leans up against her man. Jonathan-Christopher uneasily hands another pamphlet to a person walking past, even though the random man eventually tosses the paper to the ground.
Vickie Hall: We are organizing a NEW fanbase for our quaint little Hallmark Journey and what better way to spread information than the grand entrance of the Ball Arena!
Vickie lowers the camera to reveal a ton more leaflets in a bag.
Vickie Hall: We are handing them out POST-SHOW, too!
Nick Stuart: I really don’t see the point in this. We’re in Albuquerque next.
Vickie smacks Jonathan-Christopher on the shoulder and points him in the direction of handing out another pamphlet to a fan… but Jonathan-Christopher is not as fast as needed so he misses the fan, who is now too far away. Vickie could have probably done this herself, but it IS Jonathan-Christopher’s responsibility after all. She sulks momentarily, just for a split second..
Vickie Hall: Since my man has knocked off two easy victories, it’s time we used the LOVE CONVOY in the way it was meant to be! Muhahaha!
She pauses and lowers her face. Her eyes narrow and her demeanor becomes much more malicious.
Vickie Hall: We are going to protest Jonathan-Christopher’s lack of main events, title shots and celebrity appearances. He needs to be the POSTER BOY of PRIME alongside meeeeeeee, Vickie Hall!
Jonathan-Christopher looks like he’s seen a ghost at the thought of this.
Vickie Hall: Defeating Cancer Jiles is a clear one-stop-shot to the main event! Therefore, next ReVival, we will have built up enough online and IN PERSON support to DEMAND the main event of Tropical Turmoil be changed to Jonathan-Christopher vs. Whomever the Champion May Be!
Richard Parker: You think she’s deliberately withholding Brandon Youngblood’s name?
Nick Stuart: Of course she is. She’s not stupid, as much as I hate to admit it. She has Jonathan-Christopher wrapped tightly around her finger.
Richard Parker: No kidding.
Vickie tilts her head into the camera and then brings it in far, far too close.
Vickie Hall: I have decided Jonathan-Christopher needs NO MORE trials and trivial runs! The end of the Hallmark Journey is here!
Nick Stuart: You don’t think she’s rushing this? I give Jonathan-Christopher all the credit in the world for beating Jiles, even if it wasn’t clean, it’s still a win on his record. However, there’s no way Hall is ready for the main event or anywhere close. Look at him! He can barely stand at the thought of doing anything more challenging!
Vickie Hall: I DEMAND ONLY THE BEST FOR MY MAN AND MY MAN IS FUCKING READYYYYY!
She whacks Jonathan-Christopher on the arm again and points him in the direction of another fan.
Vickie Hall: There! He’s right there! Give him one!
Jonathan-Christopher races over but ultimately can’t catch the fan in time. This only further frustrates Vickie because, of course, Jonathan-Christopher should’ve seen that fan beforehand.
Vickie brings her attention back to the camera.
Vickie Hall: I only want the TOP TALENT for my wonderful HONEY BUNCH OF OATS—?
Her voice fades. She looks to her left and then moves the camera to reveal…
The newly former Five Star Champion had just rounded a corner and stumbled into…whatever the Halls are up to right here. He’d wanted to make an escape before he got involved–after the series of disasters leading up to Colossus, the last thing he or anyone else needed was an interaction with the Love Convoy.
He tries to stand stock-still, hoping that Vickie Hall won’t see him if he isn’t moving. Unfortunately, that only works with Rocky De Leon, and not Pretty Pink. His camouflage is also hindered by the bright blue satin jacket with his name on it that he wears all the time.
The already exasperated Vickie glares at the Next Diamond. Looks like he failed his stealth check.
Vickie Hall: What do you want? Go away! You’re beneath the LOVE CONVOY!
Vickie whacks her Timid Tiger on the arm.
Vickie Hall: Give him a pamphlet.
Jonathan-Christopher nods. He walks over to Nate and then quietly extends his hand with one of their pieces of propaganda. On the front of the letter reads the words “Jonathan-Christopher deserved a Universal Title shot!!!”.
The Next Diamond stares at the pamphlet much in the way you would a car accident or a house fire. The design aesthetics are pretty similar, to be fair.
Nate Colton: Thanks. I’ll give it a look.
Vickie smiles and claps her hands as Nate desperately walks away. Pretty Pink is overjoyed that a wrestler took their propaganda without a hassle.
But as Jonathan-Christopher returns to his ALP, her eyes narrow in the direction of Colton leaving the scene.
Vickie grabs her man’s arm.
Vickie Hall: He was sarcastic.
Her left eyebrow twitches.
Vickie Hall: I don’t care for sarcasm.
The scene fades to a commercial as Vickie doesn’t take her eyes off Colton in the distance.
