The door of the GHW GM Smarky Smark still has the smell of polish from SS's initiation as the GM and the staff and wrestlers know that he will be out to make an impact. One such wrestler is the newly signed Adam Jones, or AJ as he wants to be called now. The Hardcore Icon is seen about to knock on the door, but he pauses and thinks about what he wants to say first. AJ nods his head and knocks on the office door.
Who is it?
Jones starts to move his lips in reply, but instead grabs his radio from his satchel and inserts the AJ theme song into it.
As the song continues to play, the newest member of GHW opens the door and enters the GM's office for the first time.
Oh, hello, Adam. What can I do for you?
Please, call me AJ.
OK, AJ, what can I do for you?
The Weapon-Master smiles and wags a finger at Smarky.
As Full Circle is this Sunday and it is the best of the best in GHW PPV history, I thought that maybe I could get a piece of the action. You see, many rivalries will be renewed at Full Circle, and seeing as I am also a regular at EVPW, I thought that maybe we could have an EVPW match on the card. I mean everybody wants to see the indy legend Adam Jones in Full Circle. So I suggest a hardcore match with GreenSpark to open the card. We're both in EVPW, we're both in GHW, and we were both indy wrestlers. How about it?
AJ looks pretty perplexed, seeing as though his prior question has gone without an answer. Nonetheless, the Weapon Master smiles, and replies to his new boss.
“Well, how long do you want to last in this company?”
Adam is surprised by this curveball.
“Uh... as long as possible, boss, because -”
“You seem to me like you WANT me to fire your ass right now!”
“First rule of GHW under my rule. Never, and I mean NEVER, mention that company in my earshot. Next time you do, I will give myself the pleasure of having Chip and Nacho beat you from here to Kabul!”
Adam gulps, swallowing his pride and letting Smarky continue in his authoritarian rant.
“But I digress. You are new, and I could do with seeing you in action sooner rather than later. ERIN!”
At that moment, a slender and pretty blonde waltzes in to the room with a clipboard, raising her eyebrows at Smarky.
“Erin, please could you book Adam Jones against Greenspark for this Sunday?”
“Thanks. By the way, this is Erin, she's my secretary, or... liaison for the locker room, so to speak. You will all be seeing more of her from now on. Now, you can go, both of you.”
Erin leaves, but Adam hangs back, wanting to quesiton something.
“You said it was a dark match...”
“Well, everyone starts somewhere. You are new, and you didn't do yourself any favours by mentioning... them. You're the warm up act. Impress me this Sunday, and you could achieve a spot on the card for Triumph. Capiche?”
“Okay... thank you.”
Adam turns on his heel, leaving the room more relived than a moment ago. Before he gets through the doorway, Smarky shouts.
