WHY THE CHAIR IS THERE
We cut to Matt Mills who is smiling, beaming really, with a microphone in his hand. Behind him is Fighting For Nora, talking to each other lowly and nodding. We aren’t as focused on them, however as we are on the woman Matt Mills stands next to.
Matt Mills: Hey guys, I’m with Fighting For Nora and their newly appointed manager, Shweta Kallemullah, who is also the Fighting For Nora Foundation Chairperson. Ms. Kallemullah, I have to ask, what led to your foray into the wrestling world?
Shweta Kallemullah: Thanks for having me, Matt. Ordinarily I’d prefer to be in the background, not heard, not seen, running things for these two men who have worked so hard for the Foundation’s purpose. Part of the job was checking in with these two, with Nora, to make sure everything was running smoothly. However, with the introduction of Tag Team Survivor – a great idea by the way.
Paxton Ray: Says who?
Shweta Kallemullah: The two men have even less time for their Foundation. Which means that in order to help them and myself, I should be around them more. So we have temporarily moved the Foundation offices to Las Vegas, and I will be around much more often.
Matt Mills: And what do you think you can bring to Fighting For Nora as they embark on this quest to become the inaugural PRIME Tag Team Champions?
Shweta Kallemullah: Matt, what color socks did you wear on the very first ReVival?
Matt Mills: Uh…what?
Shweta Kallemullah: I’ll try a little more recently. ReVival 3?
Matt Mills: They…uh, they were probably…black?
Shweta Kallemullah: As time goes on, our memories forget small details, things that are seemingly unimportant. But someone I used to work for taught me that all details are important, and if you want to run a successful operation, you must see the details, remember the details, and use them to your advantage. My value to Fighting For Nora is the same as my value as the Chairperson; I keep my team focused, I keep them ready, and to be a little crude, I run the goddamn show so that they don’t have to.
Rhine looks at Paxton and chuckles.
Jonathan Rhine: He even talks like her.
Paxton Ray: Who?
Jonathan Rhine: Nobody.
Matt Mills: I’m hearing from my production manager that I was indeed wearing black socks. Moving on, what do you have to say about your team’s chances in tonight’s event?
Shweta Kallemullah: It’s a strange thing, this challenge. While I have the utmost confidence in Jon and Paxton to succeed no matter the situation, I feel more comfortable about their chances in a wrestling ring than I do about their chances in boulder pushing. And the format of tribes and alliances lends itself to unpredictable outcomes. But look at the two men behind you.
Matt turns and looks at the tag team. Rhine smiles proudly while Paxton shrugs.
Shweta Kallemullah: They’re the first team to score a pinfall victory in this new PRIME. A team that defeated three other teams to do so. And a team that has successfully generated attention and financial backing for a cause that we can all get behind. These men are the face of something special, and that’s why I continue to put my faith, my resources, and my skills as a manager and chairperson behind them.
Matt Mills: Well good luck out there, Fighting For Nora. Tag Team Survivor is next…
