**The scene fades up inside an aquarium. Standing there, watching the fish inside swim around, was Candy. She was holding her 2 ½ year old daughter, Ruby, on her hip as they watched the fish together.**
Candy: See? That’s a clownfish!
Candy: That’s right! Exactly like Nemo! You’re so smart, Miss Ruby!
**Ruby excitedly points to a blue fish**
Candy: That’s right! And look back there… that big fishy? That’s a whale!
Candy: Exactly! Mommy has to wrestle inside a whale this week.
**Candy chuckled a little bit**
Candy: I don’t know. I’ll have to figure that out later. Maybe I should get a scuba outfit or something. I wonder if Carmen or Ivory are gonna wear scuba outfits. Maybe they'll wear swimsuits instead?
Ruby: Silly mommy.
Candy: Yeah, they can't make us wrestle inside a whale. That's not safe, right Miss Ruby?
**As she said this, a voice was heard walking up to them**
Marcus: Who do you think you are, Pinocchio?
Candy: No, silly. He didn't WRESTLE in a whale. He was on a raft, duh.
Ruby: DADDY! DADDY!!
**Ruby reached out for Marcus, who took her in his arms and hugged her close**
Marcus: Is mommy being silly again?
Ruby: Mommy not silly. Mommy pretty.
Marcus: That she is. And she's a winner too. So this week she's gonna win against the two meanie heads Ivory and Carmen… right?
Ruby: MOMMY WINNER!
Candy: Yeah, mommy's gonna win and then we are gonna celebrate however you want.
Ruby: OUCH CREAM!
Marcus: That sounds like a good plan to me. Winning and Ice cream.
**He kissed his wife on the forehead, gently, with a soft smile on his face**
Marcus: I know you miss all the friends you made in SCW… but I'm glad you made the decision to come to PWS. To come home. It just feels… right.
Candy: It really does. I can't wait to see what kind of adventures we will have!

Carmens Thoughts Cardiff, Wales
Wedding planning, Battle scars, and a Championship defense.
What more could a girl ask for? How about one breath to plan for my wedding? Sadly, that is not the life I chose, but this, is the life I love. After celebrating my brothers FIRST title win ever, these constant Championship defenses seem even more important. The only thing that is more important than my title is him, Max Delgado. I can't wait to marry him. He makes me feel as if I can do anything. And with him by my side, I can. Even now, as I am blogging this, I can see him outside training. He's as amazing in the ring, as he is outside of it. Full of talent and life. He has a fire I haven't seen out of anyone else in this industry before. A fire that we seem to share, the same fire he saw in me, the women he has chosen to be his wife, and I look forward to that day.
Until then, I will continue to defend MY Collateral Damage Championship. A championship I busted my as to win and continue to defend weekly. Since my first day in this company, there hasn't been a challenge I couldn't face.. and destroy. With each win, my place in PWS:APEX gets stronger. Years from now, they will list MY NAME among those who are the pinnacle of this industry. But that day is in a very distant future, for now I am here.. and I WILL continue to fight, with everything that I have inside of me, until there is no blood left to drain from my body.
I cannot let my family down, I can't let my fans down, I can't let MAX down. I must win, no matter the cost.. no matter what it takes. When I leave RIOT this week, I will still be PWS:APEXS COLLATERAL DAMAGE CHAMPION. My legacy began when I took that title from Dylan Howell.. it will not end with either of my opponents at RIOT.
Carmen and Max are seen leaning against a wall, he was talking to her, clearly about her match and hyping her up. They spotted the camera and she began to speak.
"Candy, and Ivory, There isn't a force in HEAVEN or HELL, there is no DEMON who could take this from me. It's MINE. When you have bled for this industry as long as I have, as much as I have, then you can come and take it. Until then, perhaps the best option for you, is to play in the PURE ring.. or maybe find a tag team partner, seems like a safer place for you if you ask me. Because stepping into that ring for me.. when it comes to THIS.. this title makes ANYONE I step into the ring with COLLATERAL DAMAGE. If you doubt that.. come down to the ring.. test your luck."
She thinks about the first of her two opponents in this triple threat match.
"Ivory, Where have you been? I mean.. the last anyone heard from you, you were getting beat down in that big battle royal match. Damn I know injuries can last a VERY long time.. but what does that say for you? Did getting tossed out of that ring cause you THAT much damage. If so darling, you might want to rethink this whole.. wrestling thing. Get out of here.. you aren't even fit to be in the ring with Candy, much less in the ring with me. The only reason I am in this match is because I promised to defend my title EVERY week. And YOU aren't the one darling..."
Carmen looked over at Max and smiled brightly at him, knowing she was right. He nodded in agreement, sliding his arm around her tighter.
"Candy, wow... hello! Welcome to the big time. If facing Squidman was easy for you, then you've made it." Carmen looks at Max and they both bust out laughing so hard, that Max, turns around to slap the stone wall behind them. "News flash, that's not a huge accomplishment.. Squidman is the ETERNAL jobber. He's worst than Grog.. he's on the roster.. but rarely shows up unless it's to get his ass kicked. Don't count it in your wins and losses darling. It was a cheap win, come on.. he's literally a squid. When it comes to real talent, you are looking at it. This title, is the Collateral Damage Championship. This title.. isn't an EASY win. This title came with blood, sweat and tears. Are you ready to sacrifice your physical wellbeing in order to bring this title home? That's the real question you need to ask yourself. It doesn't matter if I'm fighting you in here, on a beach.. or in the middle of a forest.. the outcome will STILL be the same. I WILL COME OUT ON TOP."
She smiled at Max then turned to the camera one last time, knowing that tonight was going to be the moment that cemented her as a fighting champion.
"So come on ladies.. show up.. step up.. and meet the REAL WOMAN around here. Or go play in the dirt with Jester Bailey.. Because neither of you are on MY level. After tonight.. I'll level up.. and you'll shrink into the darkness.. This one is for my family, my fans.. and you.."
With that Carmen pulls Max into a passionate kiss and he pushes the camera away, before growling at her and the two walk off, with Carmen's Collateral Damage Championship facing backwards off her shoulder, towards the view of the now fallen over camera.
