A scene is established where Stacy Clark stands outside a large modern house on a dark night.

As Stacy approaches the house she gives several concerned looks at the camera before stopped just outside the house and addressing the camera directly.

 

 

Stacy: We don't know exactly what kind of man we're going to find here tonight. Nobody has directly spoken to this man since his suspension order began and nobody has heard anything from him since the suspension order was lifted.

 

Stacy: We're not even sure anyone's going to be here. We've been ordered, on behalf of OCWFED.NET, to conduct interviews with both him and Mr Valmont ahead of their match this Sunday. And, at this moment, we stand here at the last known address of one Trevor McManus.

 

Stacy: The main goals of this interview are to determined several things. One of the pressing questions is whether or not he will actually be accepting the invitation to participate at Sunday's event.

 

Stacy: Also to determine his mind set. Rumours are rife that the former OCW Champion was unable to cope with the hardship of losing the title.

 

Stacy: And finally....[The camera pans to the side as Stacy is cut off by the loud noise of a motorcycle engine.]

 

Along the side of the large house, a broad beam of light cuts through the darkness. The noise of the engine grows more intense until it is almost deafening, then it suddenly dies and the light disappears.

 

Stacy looks into the camera with a fearful expression upon her face. She signals for the camera crew to follow her and heads towards the direction the light and noise emanated.

 

Stacy: At least we know someone's home.

 

Stacy reaches the corner of the house we can see a large garage around the side of it. Stacy and the crew head towards it, the door is fully opened and we can see the motorcycle responsible for the noise parked up in the garage with a rider, engulfed in darkness, still sitting prone upon it, facing away from Stacy and the crew.

 

 

Stacy: Trevor? Trevor McManus? It's Stacy Clark, from OCWFED.NET.

 

No reply comes and the rider does not move. Stacy tries again, with the same result.

 

Stacy looks at the camera and gives a shrug. she starts to advance towards the garage but stops suddenly as the rider stands up and dismounts the cycle.

 

 

Stacy: I don't have a good feeling about this. Let's just get out of here and tell head office that they can get someone a little more physical to come here and try to interview him if they want.

 

 

The rider removes the leather gloves and jacket that they are wearing. The rider turns around and Stacy gets a glance of his t-shirt.

The rider removes his helmet quickly as he spots Stacy and the crew. Trevor McManus' neatly trimmed hair sits perfectly, untouched by the 'helmet effect.' Trevor quickly removes a set of earphones from his ears.

 

 

Trevor: What the hell are you guys doing here? Are you trying to give me a heart attack sneaking up on me?

 

Stacy: You have to be joking! How creepy are you, who sits on their motorcycle for five minutes after they're pulled into the drive?

 

Trevor: Well I wanted to hear the rest of I Think We're Alone Now.

 

Stacy glares accusingly at him.

 

 

Trevor: Did I say I Think We're Alone Now? I meant Bat Out Of Hell, can't beat a bit of Meatloaf.

 

Trevor: Let me just shut this garage up and I'll take you guys inside, it's freezing out here.

 

Closes the garage door and locks it up. He beacons for the team to follow him round the back of the house.

 

 

Trevor: You know this house was built for John McCain to be used as his holiday home during his presidential vacations, but he sold it off after the rather decisive loss Barrack Obama.

 

Stacy: Wow, really?

 

Trevor: Eh, how the hell should I know, I'm just trying to make the walk to the door a little more interesting.

 

As they reach the back of the house Stacy stops confronted by a wall of windows. Trevor stops and smiles at her.

 

 

Trevor: You're not the only person confused by how it works. For the first week I owned this house I was sleeping in that garage.

 

Trevor leans his hands flat on the central window and slides it to the left, opening up an entrance to the house. He invites the crew inside and slides it shut again.

 

 

Trevor: Sit down guys. I'll come back with drinks in a second.

 

Stacy: We'd better not, we're working.

 

Trevor: Fine you guys be boring all you want. I'm going to get myself a whiskey.

 

Trevor leaves the shot as the crew take a seat on Trevor's couch.

Stacy: Whiskey? Perhaps the stories of him being reduced to a drunk are true after all.

 

Stacy turns directly to the camera.

 

 

Stacy: This is a major story unfolding before you ladies and gentlemen. Let's play this by ear and see what we can uncover.

 

Trevor comes back into the room with a glass of whiskey in hand. He sits opposite the crew on a chair.

Trevor: A lot of people don't like the bubble chair, some even say it's a tad gay but I like it damnit.

 

Trevor takes a sip of his whiskey.

 

 

Stacy: Trevor, let me first thank you for giving OCWFED.NET the first exclusive interview since your suspension from OCW was lifted.

 

Trevor: My pleasure Stacy. I actually wanted the platform to let the OCW fans know what's going on.

 

Stacy: We certainly look forward to hearing all the details about that. I'm sure you've heard that rumours are flying around about your personal life and we want to get to the bottom of some of them today.

 

Stacy: Let's start at the beginning here. Your title shot against leonheart, close to a year ago now, this was when you first got a taste of the World Championship picture. Did this experience shape the past year's events for you?

 

Trevor: That's a hard question to answer. I don't think it did to be honest with you. Everyone that steps in to an OCW ring has the goal of holding that title at some time in their career. From D-Jack to Nate Ortiz, we all dream of it. Getting that first shot might boost your belief that it's possible but it doesn't create the desire for the title. So either way I think my year would have been largely about the belt.

 

Stacy: Now your opponent this Sunday, one Vincent Valmont, suggests that you only tasted main event status because of him and how he was screwed out of that shot by Leonheart's attack that very same night. How do you respond to those comments?

 

Trevor: He's saying that I only got the shock because he was a weak target for Leon? That's an amazing argument right there. That's like McCain claiming Obama only won because McCain sucked too much.

 

Stacy: What is it with you and the 2009 Presidential election?

 

Trevor: It's a topic everyone can relate to. Metaphorical examples help everyone.

 

Stacy: Fair play to you on that one. Progressing through your year here, we come to Wreslution. Once again you missed out on the big one, the second time this has happened in your career. And as if by fate, Vincent Valmont wins the match you were supposed to compete in and gains a shot at the OCW Title. First of all let me ask you how you felt about missing out.

 

Trevor: For everyone it's a hard thing. For someone who qualified for the show to miss out due to someone else's incompetence is even worse. Given that I could have earned another title shot that makes it insanely difficult to swallow.

 

Stacy: Now let me ask how the fact Vincent Valmont won the match affected you.

 

Trevor: At that stage I had no issues with him so it didn't really bother me all that much. Looking back it makes my blood boil though. If Leon hadn't been so weak as champion then Valmont would be on the midcard where he belongs.

 

Stacy: Strong comments there regarding Vincent's position in the company but we'll come back to that when we conclude this timeline of events. A little further down the line during a period of inactivity for yourself, Vincent cashes in and defeats Leon for the title. This apparently didn't sit well with you and you decided to return to the company and target Vincent in a very personal way until you finally gained a shot yourself. Could you shed some light on why exactly you reacted in this way to Vincent's title win?

 

Trevor: Certainly. I'm a great believer in many things. One of those things is that a good match deserves a rematch and another is that a man must earn his title by taking the champion on in a fair and balanced match. Now, my January match with Leonheart was one of those good competitive matches which deserved a rematch. It didn't happen and fair enough, that's staff's decision.

 

Trevor: My main beef was that Valmont's title win was totally classless. You could argue that the future investment win gave him the right to be this way but when one choses this route they must expect the same thing in return. Why would I give him respect and conduct myself as a classy challenger when he hadn't given Leonheart that comfort?

 

Trevor: Putting my mixed feelings about Leonheart aside I will say that at least he faced me fairly in January, we put on a great match and that was that.

 

Trevor: So to answer the question in summary, I reacted this way because it shows, to me, a lack of class on Valmont's part and a champion should conduct himself with class.

 

Stacy: That leads nicely on to my next question. After you won the title there was a series of controversial events and sparing everyone the lengthy I'll just say you ended up losing your title to Valmont in a three way match also involving K.Dangleo. Everyone knows how this must have felt for you but I'd like to get a word on what actually lead to your suspension from the company, could you shed some light on that please?

 

Trevor: I felt that was the former champion I was entitled to a rematch, especially considering the fact that K.Dangelo and Valmont had both been given repeated shots at the title during my short-lived reign. To cut a long story short, there was certain negotiation 'issues' between myself and staff. Words were said and people were given details which were beyond their required knowledge.

 

Stacy: Earlier you almost touched on this question but I was wondering if I could extract a full answer from you on the matter just now. Given the events of the past few months, where do you considering yourself and Valmont to be in relation to card position and role in the company?

 

Trevor: Well personally I have a clause imposed on my contract as part of my suspension order that I am no longer allowed to be involved in OCW World Title matches until notified otherwise. So I certainly won't be in the title hunt for a long while. And as for Valmont, if he can walk after Sunday then he'll be a lucky man.

 

Stacy: Moving to the future slightly I'd like to ask you a few things about Sunday.

 

Trevor: Sunday ill be what it will be. I won't be answering any questions on that matter. You'll see my position when I enter that ring. I plan to make a statement that I am a force in OCW and that you would be wise not to find yourself on my bad side.

 

Stacy: Well Trevor just before we go, we'd like to ask you a few questions about your time during the suspension period.

 

Trevor: There's not much to tell. I've just been chilling, buying furniture and riding my motorcycle.

 

Stacy: There's been rumours of a possible drink problem?

 

Trevor: The problem is that I can't find a drink I like. This whiskey is rotten, hence why I haven't taken a sip since we began this interview.

 

Stacy: There's other rumours suggesting you're having mental health issues as a result of your loss and subsequent suspension from the company.

 

Trevor: Yeah, having a month off of work would drive everyone insane. Listen Stacy there's no story here in regards to my personal life. I'm the same as always.

 

Stacy: But even that is an enigma in itself. Who are you? Are you nice or are you mean? You can never tell what you're getting with you. I was terrified coming here tonight because the last time we seen you, you were aligned with Leonheart and treating everyone like dirt. Yet a couple of months before that you were all laughs and jokes. Where's your head at?

 

Trevor: My head is neutral. If you give me cause to be the evil motorcycle riding son of a bitch I was last time in the ring, then that's who I'll be. But if you don't cross me then I'll give you a lift on my cool motorcycle. It's entirely up to other people if the noise of the motorcycle engine strikes fear into their hearts or if it is a noise of a friend.

 

Stacy: What does the motorcycle signal on Sunday?

 

Trevor: Do you think it's going to be a happy motorcycle on Sunday? I think I've given you people enough of an interview now, you're running low on questions and you're starting to ramble quite honestly.

 

Stacy: You have been most generous with your time this evening and we thank you.

 

Stacy turns to the camera.

 

Stacy: For OCWFED.NET this is Stacy Clark, at the beginning of the night we weren't sure what we'd...

 

Trevor: That's smashing darling, take it outside.

 

Stacy and the crew raise from the couch and are quickly ushered to the door by Trevor. He slides the window open for them once more and as they walk outside it quickly closes behind them. Stacy turns to the camera for a final thought and all the windows in the house quickly become covered by fast falling blinds.

With an ego like yours I'm surprised they aren't mirrors.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

 

As long as they open a window first there's no issue.
