*We open to a shot of a locker room somewhere. Hard to say exactly what fed, since OCW is wrestling so infrequently and the closest Outsiders came to a 'locker room' was the guest bedroom in the house. But somewhere, somehow, we've found a locker room to be in. Sitting to one side, setting up what looks like an intricate collection of wiring behind a television, is Peter "The Janitor" Vaughn. He seems to be satisfied with what he's put together, then looks up as he hears a knock at the door.*
Peter Vaughn: Huh, I wasn't expecting anyone tonight. Maybe it's a surprise delivery? Oooo, maybe an Edible Arrangement? Wait, who would send me that? Oh well, let's find out...
*Vaughn opens the door, hoping for something sweet and preparing for something sour. It's somewhat of a mixture, I'd say, as Aaron Warthog is standing outside, smiling.*
Peter Vaughn: Aaron!! Long time no see!
Aaron Warthog: Good to see you, champ!
*Vaughn and Warthog give each other a manly chest bump, with Vaughn forced to take a few steps back from the recoil. They laugh, as Warthog walks in and looks around. Vaughn can't help but take note of Warthog wearing the Outsiders Streaming Service championship around his waist. Who knows what kind of extensions had to be ordered to make that happen.*
Peter Vaughn: So you're still wearing your belt?
Aaron Warthog: Of course! Never leave home without it! You should be wearing the Outsiders World Title, too!
Peter Vaughn: I tried wearing it non-stop. It kind of chafes after a while...
Aaron Warthog: Yeah, that's why I'm wearing an extra layer!
Peter Vaughn: So what brings you here, Aaron? You have a match later on?
Aaron Warthog: I wish. You don't know if anyone's hiring right now, do you? I miss those GCWA pay-outs, especially with a family on the way...
Peter Vaughn: Oh yeah, congratulations! Well, OCW's not hiring right now, and I don't really know of any other place. If you want to mop some floors, I might be able to help you...
Aaron Warthog: I'm really not built to be a janitor.
Peter Vaughn: True. Well, come on in, I was just about to watch OCW's Wednesday Night Piledriver!
Aaron Warthog: But it's Thursday, isn't it?
Peter Vaughn: I'm behind.
*Warthog moves over to where Vaughn has connected the small television with a well-used laptop, which is apparently stealing the WiFi signal from the arena. Vaughn cues up the show, and they begin to watch.*
Aaron Warthog: That Cheasy M guy's a few pickles short of a barrel, isn't he?
Peter Vaughn: I try not to judge. The guy's been through some pretty harsh times, including that plane crash.
*The video plays the piece on Xavier Lux's father, Scorpion, including showing a match from the OCW vault.*
Aaron Warthog: Scorpion died?? Damn it! I never got his autograph!
Peter Vaughn: I think I saw a correction and apology sent out today from Cheasy M.
Aaron Warthog: So Scorpion's not dead?
Peter Vaughn: Honestly, who the heck knows for sure? All I know is, Lux is just as tough as Scorpion was, or is, or whatever...
*The next part is the interview between Cheasy M, Dylan Thomas, and Lissandra Thomas. Some of Dylan's comments obviously hit home for Vaughn. Warthog, sensing Vaughn getting more annoyed, tries to break the tension.*
Aaron Warthog: How much work do you think Lissandra's had done over the years? She's a mom, right? So she probably had to get some tucks done here and there.
Peter Vaughn: It's Dylan who's going to need some work done after that Prison Yard match. He'd better hope he ends up with someone other than myself or Mr. Zybala. Things won't go well for him, locked in a cage without any of his normal helpers.
Aaron Warthog: Yep, you'll have a cage, but don't forget that Lord Allton is a slimy piece of work. He'll cheat any way he can to win.
Peter Vaughn: I might need to put together a group to come out with me to the cage, to prevent an attack beforehand from the Family, huh?
Aaron Warthog: How much will it pay?
Peter Vaughn: We'll talk about it later.
*We next see the interaction between Mack O'Connor and Julie, revealing that the OCW TransAtlantic Title was stolen from him by Greg.*
Aaron Warthog: And that's why you need to wear your championship everywhere, so that can't happen.
*After a second, Vaughn turns and goes over to his bag. He pulls out the Outsiders World Title and puts it on, with Warthog giving him an enthusiastic thumbs up.*
Aaron Warthog: That's my boy!
Peter Vaughn: I can't believe Julie gave up the title like that to just anyone. Mack used some foul language there, but I guess I can't blame him.
Aaron Warthog: I still can't believe the dog was locked in the garage as we're getting into summer weather! Someone call the ASPCA!
*We next have Leo The High School Intern reviewing recent promos, including Vaughn's climb up a cliff-face.*
Peter Vaughn: Cool, sounds like they enjoyed the video. It hurt like hell making it, my finger is still really sore. But the nail is healing nicely.
Aaron Warthog: Yeah, I wanted to ask you about that. I'm really curious about your mysterious mentor. You know, some people are saying that it could be me!
Peter Vaughn: Why would they think that??
Aaron Warthog: Because it'd be awesome... and amazing... and maybe I kind of let it slip that it might be me...
Peter Vaughn: But it's not you...
Aaron Warthog: But it could be!
Peter Vaughn: *sigh* Well, people can speculate all they want about it. It'll be revealed in time.
Aaron Warthog: In all seriousness, Peter... as a friend, just be careful around this person, okay? I'm not sure they have your best interests at heart...
*Vaughn looks confused by that statement, but his attention is soon grabbed by the next segment, showing Mike Zybala at the hospital with the injured Marcus Welsh.*
Peter Vaughn: Good old Mr. Zybala, paying a visit to an injured friend.
Aaron Warthog: Has Zybala mentioned when we're fighting next for Outsiders?
Peter Vaughn: Not to me. But I'm sure it will be taken care of soon enough, especially if he works out something with Mr. Welsh.
*We see the current standings displayed, with Vaughn currently in second place behind Thomas.*
Aaron Warthog: Nice!
Peter Vaughn: It's not the top spot, though...
Aaron Warthog: #2 is never a bad thing!
Peter Vaughn: If you say so. Here's hoping I can keep up with everyone else once things really get rolling.
*The video feed ends, with Vaughn and Warthog getting to their feet.*
Aaron Warthog: Well, you got mentioned a few times, and you're on the minds of the people, so that's a good thing, Peter. So... you're SURE they're not hiring anyone else right now?
Peter Vaughn: They're definitely not. And I'm only here thanks to my ties to Outsiders. But you never know, Aaron, maybe sometime, in the future, you'll get your shot.
Aaron Warthog: For now, you're carrying the faith of Outsiders, you and Zybala. I know you're going to make us all look good, and not get pinned or submit first.
*With that 'happy' comment, Warthog pats Vaughn on the shoulder and turns, leaving the room. Vaughn stands there, thinking about what he just heard.*
Peter Vaughn: No pressure... time to work out.
*Vaughn goes to the laptop and starts fiddling with it, working to get to a workout video as we fade out.*
