(The cameras catch up with Alexis Makarios as she is pacing back and forth in her locker room.)
Alexis: I just… I don’t get it. I don’t know what happened… I’ve gone for that move a million and a half times… was it a mistake on my part?
(Her husband spoke up from off camera)
James: No, it’s not your fault… I have sat beside you as you have rewatched that match over and over… and it was clear he was faking you out and waited until you were midair where there was nothing you could do. He played dirty and it paid off for him.
Alexis: It’s still… I should have known better.
James: Don’t dwell on it. It happens.
Alexis: But not to me. I just… have I lost my touch?
James: Considering everything you have been through, I’d say that you are just seeing things differently. And that’s ok. Some one took advantage and tricked you, it happens. You just gotta dust yourself off and try again.
Alexis: That’s easy for you to say. I am out of the ring for a few months, dealing with my mental health issues, and I come back to this crap?
James: Don’t let it bother you. Just relax a little bit and go out there this week against Miles and do what you do best… and win.
(She looked over at him with a little smirk)
Alexis: Miles? Miles Kasey? That idiot? You mean he does stuff other than post ab pictures on Twitter and let that little punk Morgan follow him around like a puppy dog?
James: Actually… yes. He just competed in probably the most hilarious match over in SCW.
James: Yeah, a Pretty in Pink Tuxedo match. He won, too.
(Alexis raised an eyebrow and laughed a bit)
Alexis: Thus confirming my statement that he is nothing more than a common stripper? That sounds about right. And at least it’s a Main Event match this week so… this should be fun.
James: Yup. Just keep things light and calm and you will be fine. Don’t stress.
(She glared in his direction)
Alexis: The quickest way to stress some one out is to tell them not to stress…
James: Just remember the different techniques the doctors taught you to help you stay calm.
Alexis: I swear to god if you tell me to count backwards from 10 and take a deep breath… you are sleeping on the couch.
James: Then I won’t tell you…
(she looks towards him, unamused, as the scene fades)

Can’t Get Enough
It’s alright Milo, last time you were here, you made a complete arse out of yourself.
So nothing has changed. Not a damn thing.
*GIMMIE A HELL, GIMMIE A YEAH!* the sound that came screaming from his phone. He did that lately, gave all his contacts their own theme songs, so he knew exactly was ringing his phone. He’s been waiting for this moment, “ello?”
“Miles.” rang out the voice for PWS: Apex Riot General Manager, Laura ‘Phoenix’ Madison.
Hearing her voice was awesome, his home was PWS but he was having fun away for a bit, “Well hello there Mrs. Madison. How can I help you on this fine evening? Better yet, how is things in PWS? Boring, since I haven’t been around, I’d wager.”
You could almost hear a small laugh but she had to remain professional, “To say the least. I saw that you have your hands full in Sin City.”
“You could say that. Candy threw me in some weird tuxedo match in this tournament but it’ll be fun nonetheless.” he said, rubbing the back of his neck.
“Oh I bet. So the reason I’m calling....”
He sat back in his chair, and threw his feet up along with the empty arm behind his head, “Ah, let me guess....you and the entire staff were discussing it and the ONLY one that could potentially go after Ms. Williams and that champion was your gorgeous former United Champion to make his grand return to PWS: Apex, after he completely fucked up his first return match months ago, because he does deserve a true second -...er....third chance?”
Shrugging, “I try.”
“ACTUALLY, there is something that is in the works but not for you.”
You can almost see him take a deep breath and let it out in a sigh of relief, “Aw, pity. I’d love to face Sierra someday.”
“Maybe someday. But we were actually truly wondering if you were ready to be back in PWS: Apex full time?”
“I mean, all ya had to do was ask.”
“Good, because we have the perfect match for you to return.”
He sits up and tries to think of his last match, it did not go well at all, “Not Sykes again.....or was that Sanders?”
“It was Sykes and no...Alexis.”
His eyes go big “WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT? Didn’t that crazy redhead just get out of the wacko bin?”
“She was in a psychiatric unit for a bit to receive help for her mental issues, yes.”
“And didn’t she just lose to Lyons like 2 weeks ago or something?”
“Soooooo how is she fit to challenge me? ESPECIALLY when I am in direct correlation with the family that she supposedly isn’t supposed to have any contact with to begin with.”
“Well you aren’t TECHNICALLY a Russow.”
He shakes his head but nods after a moment but can’t help himself, “No, but I was trained by one. That should be enough to possibly send her back over the edge, ya’d think.”
“We’re not trying to do that. Alexis was once one of my closest friends but seems like lately I don’t know, she’s not in that right mindset. So we figured having you and her go one on one may snap her out of whatever the hell she’s got going through her head AND at the same time we get you back into the swing of things, in a big way no less.”
“I wouldn’t do it any other way to be honest.”
“So I take it that that is a yes?”
“Count me in.”
“GREAT! Oh and by the way Miles...her last name is MAKARIOS! ...don’t fuck it up.”
You could hear the laughter from the other end of the line as Miles just rolls his eyes and facepalms, “The horse is dead, put the stick down. And don’t worry, I won’t send her back to the padded room.”
“I appreciate that. See you in Philly.”
“Looking forward to it.” Hanging up, he sits back with a smile on his face. “Time to go home and show that bitch who’s boss. At least I can get a bit of revenge.”
Sitting up in his hotel room, he looks behind him and sees his bag sitting there with the pink tuxedo hanging out of it. Oh he’s framing that.
A victor in that match, he made sure that it was one to be memorable for a long time to come.
Either way, he had to bring himself down, get set to fly back to the east coast and to the City of Brotherly Love.
“I cannot believe how crazy my life has become. One minute, I’m lauded over as the biggest up and coming superstar and the next I’m in these weird ass matches that people think I should be....embarrassed about. Look, my name is out there, people know who I am and how I have zero issues in making a complete arse out of myself.” he stretches out and lays back on the bed, smiling like an idiot, ”If you don’t laugh at yourself, you’re going to end up going absolutely cra-....er...well you’re going to hate....ah fuck it, you are going to go completely nuts and get locked up in a wacko bin with nothing but pinball tables and handpupets to keep you entertained while you undergo shock therapy.”
“Fact remains, Lexi, you forgot how to have fun. I almost did. It’s why I took myself out of the equation here for a bit. I started to take myself FAR too seriously. Instead you find yourself on Lithium, while everyone has to tiptoe around you like you’re just a bomb waiting to go off at ever so much the mention of Russow.” he shrugs like it doesn’t even feel bad. IN fact, it’s pretty obvious he doesn’t.
“We have taken two very different paths since we last faced each other in the ring. Now I’m out to have fun....while you still have a stick up your ass like you are a Jeff Dunham puppet. I’m not going to play nicey nice, I’m going to show you out and tell you right to your face. I know I’m better...and this WHOLE ASS is BACK in PWS...for good.”
