Hawkeye is sitting at his desk, working through some paperwork when he hears a knock on the door. He looks up and a smug smile creeps onto his face a Skull walks in through the door. He welcome his stablemate and offers him a seat.
Hawkeye: Skull, how are you?
Skull: Fine, well I'll be better when Trickshot is out of the picture.
Hawkeye smirks and nods in agreement.
Skull: What I'm here for is a request. You may have noticed that a new tag team has recently been formed between Kym Starr and that infernal nuisance, Ryan Hughes. Now we both know that when Ryan beat me it was a fluke, so I propose a tag match. Ryan Hughes and Kym Starr vs Me and a diva of your choice. I like Kahlan, she's feisty and could probably kick the hell out of that bimbo Kym Starr. But personally I don't care which diva you choose, it doesn't even have to be a diva, pick a guy. Equal rights, equal fights. If Kym wants to make it in GHW she should be able to hang with the guys too. All I want is another shot at Ryan Hughes to put him in his place for good. So what do you say?
Annoyed at this intrusion, Hawkeye goes to throw DeShaun out of his office but Skull stops him, a familiar scheming look appearing on his face.
Skull: I have no intention of pinning Kym for the easy win. I'd rather knock Ryan out with The Bloodline.
DeShaun looks at Skull, unsure whether to believe him or not.
Is that so?
Yes, but since you like to stick your nose into other peoples business, i have a proposition for you. Singles match, me vs you. If I win then you have to be my tag partner to take on Ryan and Kym. If I lose... well, you can choose your own stipulation. What about it?
Skull smirks as DeShaun looks a little less relaxed, considering whether to accept the challenge or not.
Skull takes a few seconds to think of a comeback but then just admits defeat, realizing that he isn't going to be able to manipulate DeShaun Brown.
"As much as my dislike for you is growing by the second, I don't stand to gain anything by having a tag match with you and Tarvias Cole. I have more important things to concentrate on like scouting Kahlan, Irish Storm and Mke Allen for their upcoming Television championship tournament matchs. But after I win that title, I'll be looking for a full time tag partner and when I find one we'll be heading straight for the Harlem Hustlas to pick up our first win."
"Don't take too long finding one then."
With that DeShaun leaves the office wondering if Skull will ever find a tag partner or if he'll just chicken out. Skull turns back to Hawkeye, waiting for his decision on the match
"That was a shame, I could've used him.
"I thought you were good at manipulating people. Lost your touch?"
"He'll regret this, don't worry. But what about this match with Ryan & Kym?"
ooc:sorry for the lateness on this one. Have internet so trying to catch up before I lose it.
Hawkeye listens to all that is said and what has gone on here the last few weeks a smile breaks across his face before he speaks.
Hawkeye:I must say...Ryan has been a bit of a thorn in my side almost as much so as that Stupid idiot Trickshot. I like the idea though Skull and it could be good. As for you Deshaun teaming with only people from Harlem...If you expect to have a long career in GHW you will do as your told and be happy about it.
Now I could see possibly on the next TNT card Skull v Deshaun with that stipulation. And if it happens then I expect you Deshaun to show me what you got. Because I have been there done that when it comes to listening to people talk and brag about what they have done and what they plan on doing. So I tell you what...On the next TNT card if Skull loses at the PPV it will be Skull v Deshaun Brown with that said Stipulation. If you Deshaun have a problem with it thats too bad...because in this world I make the rules and my rules are law.
Hawkeye leans back a bit as he looks over to skull and then Deshaun waiting to see what the response will be.
Skull sighs at yet another interruption and deciding that enough is enough he gets up ready to leave the office.
Skull: Thanks boss, you won't regret it. Oh by the way, I'm going to the DIY store after the show to buy some light tubes and ofter weaponry. Want me to buy you a lock for this door?
Skull turns to DeShaun, speaking quietly so that only he can hear.
"I'll see you in the ring but whatever happens our deal still stands. I'll try to make sure you win the tag titles and you can try and help me win the TV title. Unless I beat you up too bad that you're unable to."
Finally he turns to Ryan.
"You wanna know what this is about? Believe me you'll know soon enough and it'll be an unpleasant surprise."
With that Skull attempts to leave the crowded office.
TBC by Hawkeye, Ryan, DeShaun, your mum, or anyone else with something to say ;D
Hawkeye:Yeah that might be a nice idea Skull. It seems trash always comes up in here. As for you Ryan yes there was talk of a match and it was between Deshaun there and Skull. Of course your name would come up because your beginning to be a pain in my ass. Almost like a boil or infection on the ass that won't go away. So that aside Mr. Hughes what would you like to discuss or are you looking at wasting my time with useless dribble? Also don't lean so close to me your dirty things up and I like stuff clean.

Ryans sarcastic grin turns slowly in to a menacing sneer.
-[Ryan]- : Yeah, now I come to think of it, I want to know why from the start of my GHW career, you have stuck me with opponents that have totally dragged me down and never a big time wrestler. You know I am about to be GHW's moneymaker, and the fans know it, the staff know it and most of all, You know it Hawkeye.
Ryan is now face to face with Hawkeye, who is looking like he has just been slapped in the face.
RYAN HUGHES 2x GHW New Age Champ 1x GHW World Champ 2010 NeXuS Deathmatch Winner
Hawkeye looks into the eyes of Ryan noticing the sneer he pushes his chair back slightly and reaches down into a drawer and pulls out two small glass cups as well as a glass bottle of brown liquid. Hawkeye motions with his hand for Ryan to back off, which Ryan thinking about it for a minute does just that and takes the nearest seat to him and sits down. Hawkeye pops the top to the glass bottle and sniffs the stopper before a smile comes across his face. He takes the bottle and pours about a quarter of the brown liquid into the first glass and then proceeds to do the same with the second glass. Hawkeye puts the stopper back on the bottle and places it back in the drawer which he then closes and reaches out taking both glasses and offers the one in his left hand to Ryan who is not sure and hesitates before reaching out to take the glass.
Hawkeye smiles as he leans back and takes a sip of the scotch and then puts the glass down as he leans forward. Ryan takes a sip and his face contorts and shrinks as he swallows a bit of scotch. He puts the glass down on the table as he leans forward. Hawkeye grins and then speaks.
Hawkeye:Ryan my boy...Calm down son, your give yourself a heart attack. Don't be afraid to finish the drink either, it won't kill you and it might make more of a man out of you. So that is why you have graced me with your presence because you want to know why you have been put into matches against other superstars who are holding you down and holding as you say back from being a top draw?
Ryan:That's right Hawkeye. Since I have been here all my opponents have been no where near my level. Listen to the fans out there when I step out into the ring they love me. I mean even you can not deny that fact...
Hawkeye:Really? So you feel that the people you have stepped into the ring with have been no where near your level? Lets look over the list of opponents that you had since you joined. If I remember right your first match was against Daniel Throne, Who is the reigning Charging Glory Champion and a stud in the making an that outcome was a loss. I figured since you were screaming about proving yourself that you would have shown me something there.
But alas I believe you held Daniel Throne back in that match. Lets see then your second match was against one of my hand picked men and I have no idea how you won that match seriously. But you got a win and Skull is no pushover and a vetern so I don't see being held down there. Then we have this third match that was against DM Vasher a former Champion who came back and I figured that he would be able to beat the holy hell out of you and send you back home crying. But you got a win over him in a sloppy match.
Ryan:See thats what I am talking about the people you sent me up against were horrible and not main event talent like I am. That still doesn't explain why your holding me down and preventing me from going out there and really putting on a show for the fans. As we both know my drawing power is only going to grow...
Hawkeye finishes taking a drink and cuts off Ryan before he finishes speaking.
Hawkeye:Your drawing power is going to grow? Son your drawing power? Your drawing power? Son you couldn't even headlight a Main Event Match that would make people want to see you wrestle. Do you think that your short time here has gotten you a big enough following? I don't think so in fact I still don't know how many people know you who watch GHW.
You get a small crowd reaction but thats just because they are being nice to you. Though if you think I am holding you back then tell you what. I will book you in a high profile match in fact it is such a high profile that we will see if you can handle the pressure. What you say to that? If you can not handle the pressure of this said match and put on a passable performance then I don't wanna hear you come into my office and talk about being held down, being held back, I don't wanna hear a damn peep come out of your mouth but expect you to go out and wrestle against who you are booked to wrestle and you will like it.
So then Mr. Hughes I am going to put the ball in your court. Are you going to play ball or are you going to go home like a small child who doesn't belong here?
Hawkeye reaches out grabbing his scotch off the desk as he leans back and takes a sip enjoying the aroma and sensation of the liquid as it goes down his throat waiting for Ryan's response.

Ryan is leant back in his chair, thinking about Hawkeyes offer. He then necks his scotch and leans forward, glaring at Hawkeye as he puts his glass on the desk.
-[Ryan]- : Finally, youve come to my way of thinking. I have the potential to be legendary in this great business, and I wont disappoint. Even though I hate your guts and obviously, the feeling mutual... *Hawkeye nods at this* I think I can say we have a deal, lets shake on it.
Hawkeye and Ryan lean forward to shake hands on the deal.
-[Ryan]- : So, who did you have in mind?
RYAN HUGHES 2x GHW New Age Champ 1x GHW World Champ 2010 NeXuS Deathmatch Winner
Hawkeye smiles a somewhat evil smile before he speaks. Which makes Ryan begin to second guess himself in whither or not he should have so eagerly accepted and or agreed to Hawkeye's proposition.
Hawkeye:I am glad Ryan that you are choosing to play ball and actually show me what your made of...Though I still think that you are nothing more then...Well we won't go there. As for the who, it is not the who that you have to worry about. It is more so the What that you will have to worry about because you see. I love watching those with no talent who think they have talent go into that ring and perform in front of screaming fans. So this is how the test of your skills will be played out.
On the next TnT card...You are going to be put into a match against Luciano. If you should happen to beat Luciano, then the next TNT you will be stepping into the ring against Mike Allen and if you should happen to beat Mike Allen and that is a big if then at Dawn of Destruction you will be stepping into the ring against Ryu Kenamora. If you can beat those three men in that order then maybe I will believe that you have some talent and or skill but the catch is to see what kind of drawing power you have. You have to get the fans to want to see you in the ring against all three of those superstars each and every week.
Hawkeye leans back in his chair as he takes another sip from the scotch and then lays it on the desk as he leans forward to reach into his left upper desk drawer, which seamlessly slides open revealing a contract with Ryan's name on it and the stipulations that Hawkeye has laid out. Hawkeye reaches into the drawer and pulls the contract out and lays it on the desk between himself and Ryan.
Hawkeye:So Mr. Hughes do you agree? Do you think you can handle such a thing or are you going to pass on the offer and do the world a favor by one getting out of my office and two shutting the hell up about being held back and just do your damn job?
Hawkeye takes another sip from the glass as he looks over at Ryan almost knowing the answer already but never the less waiting to see if he is wrong in his guess.
