XWA With A Vengeance: Vice Versa (Layton & Fenric)

Postby DJS » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:24 am

A big, rotating XWA logo flies across our view as we are taken backstage. Holly Hunt, veteran interviewer in the XWA, stands by with a microphone. Currently we can only see her big, beaming face. That will soon change.

HOLLY HUNT:
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time...Amy Taylor.

And we now step back to reveal the manager extraordinaire stood outside a lockerroom. She is suited, booted and possesses her usual confident glow.

AMY TAYLOR:
Evening, Holly.

HOLLY HUNT:
Hi! So, obviously a big night for your clients tonight but also, in a way, for yourself. Obviously I don't wanna go too far into what's happening with yourself and Diamond Jack Sabbath, but your client A.J. Morales finds himself in a match with him tonight.

AMY TAYLOR:
That is correct, yes.

HOLLY HUNT:
I do feel I have to ask your thoughts, especially after everything he said at District XWA. This is the closest you've come to going up against him since January. What's the current state of things in the Taylor Promotions camp heading into the main event?

AMY TAYLOR:
I won't go too much into detail about the ins-and-outs of what's happening right now between myself and Jack, but I will admit to agreeing with him on something he said. During the little diatribe he subjected us to, he said that Jack Martin-Sabbath is gone and only Diamond Jack Sabbath remains, and I certainly agree. The man I married was Jack Martin-Sabbath, a charming and driven man who wanted to become the best that he could possibly be. Diamond Jack Sabbath is not that man. Diamond Jack Sabbath is a paranoid, apprehensive egomaniac who cannot accept the fact that other people exist and might think he's wrong or may be better than him. The man I married is dead and buried.

HOLLY HUNT:
Wow. Those are some strong words, Amy. It's...honestly, as someone who's been here so long, it's still nuts we're even at this point. The two of you were practically joined at the hip for so long.

AMY TAYLOR:
Well, he Crown Kicked me in the head, Holly. We're not going to play 'nicey-nicey' anymore. He made his choice, I made mine. I'm managing people who will be the future of this company. They're winning titles and doing everything Jack did, but without the same level of self-destruction and that drives him mad. I know it does. So tonight, we're going to continue that trend, and I promise you that A.J. Morales and Taylor Promotions will walk out with our heads held high tonight.

HOLLY HUNT:
Of course, and we'll see Morales vs. Sabbath later tonight but switching gears for a moment, we'll also see your other clients Layton & Fenric looking to reclaim the Tag Team Championships here tonight...but we're doing things a little differently tonight, aren't we?

Amy smiles. Oh, she's waited for this.

AMY TAYLOR:
I mean, it's Halloween, isn't it? What's the best way to celebrate that?

HOLLY HUNT:
Trick or treating, candy...

AMY TAYLOR:
And dressing up, of course. And I thought it'd be an interesting idea for us to do something...but as a team-building exercise. Both Emery Layton and Adam Fenric believe they know each other better than they know themselves, so I've decided to put that to the test. Got the idea from another tag team who did a similar thing recently, but I'm thinking bigger. They will have to look, act and wrestle like one another. So, for one night only, the role of Adam Fenric will be played by Emery Layton and vice versa. They think they know each other so well? Time to prove it.

HOLLY HUNT:
Inventive! Reckon I could possibly get an interview out of them before the match, see how that's going?

AMY TAYLOR:
Of course. And it just so happens we're outside their lockerroom, which is quite convenient, wouldn't you say?

She knocks on the door once and they wait. Slowly, it peaks open. Walking out, leading with her chest comes Emery Layton, but not as we know her. Her hair is all tied back, her expression is stoic- the signature thousand-yard stare of Adam Fenric across her face. She is also sporting the big, swaying cloak Adam is known for wearing. She does not look Holly in the eyes, she simply looks off into the distance and waits.

HOLLY HUNT:
Good evening "Adam".

With a very bad Austrian accent that keeps slipping back into Irish-lite, Emery speaks.

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Good evening. I would appreciate that you please refer to me as "Dr. Fenric" and please do not waist my time. I have spent the last several hours considering how to defeat the insidious...ignoramuses known as Amy Jo Smyth and Jake Rogers. This requires further study and you are cutting into this time. It was a travesty that we did not manage to retain our championships last month but that will be...er...

She thinks. She struggles. Her accent drops completely for a few seconds.

EMERY LAYTON:
...wait a mo, I gotta...

She opens her cloak to reveal a thesaurus that she has been holding this entire time. She thumbs through it for a few seconds, looking up and down, muttering.

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
It'll be...err...ah! That travesty *clears throat, Austrian returns* will be rectified. None will be able to defeat the combination of I, Adam Fenric and my...partner Emery Layton.

HOLLY HUNT:
Ambitious words, Adam! You could be right about that!

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Of course I am. I am very smart.

HOLLY HUNT:
How smart?

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Do not question me, woman. Also, I'm a submission specialist. This has nothing to do with what I have just said but I have decided I would remind you.

HOLLY HUNT:
You're very rude, Adam. You should really tone it down!

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
How dare you! I, Adam Fenric, have no need for manners like the peons below me! Do not dare anger me, for I will unleash great terrors.

HOLLY HUNT:
What kind of terrors?

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Vague terrors.

HOLLY HUNT:
Oh dear. Well hopefully your partner will be nicer to me. Is Emery Layton around?

Em-in spite of trying to behave like Adam- cannot hold back her manic, cheesy grin at what the world is about to see.

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Yes. Yes, my partner is here.

HOLLY HUNT:
Could I get a few words? Emery usually has LOTS to say!

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Are you certain you want to speak with Emery Layton?

HOLLY HUNT:
I'd love nothing more!

Em swishes her cape dramatically and looks to us with a DRAMATIC CRASH ZOOM as she turns to her side and knocks on the door to the lockerroom and pokes her head in.

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Come along, Emery. They wish to speak with you...that can wait, you must focus on this. What have I told you before about focus and...

Emery pokes her head out from the door, looking to Amy, shaking her head. It's clear she's dropped the 'Adam Fenric' character. The manager rolls her eyes. Of course he wouldn't. Em retreats.

EMERY LAYTON (As Adam Fenric):
Well...it seems my partner has chosen instead to do something else with her time. Nevertheless, I assure you that with or without my partner, I'm confident I can--

The door rasps open, and stood in the doorway with the most exasperated look on his face that you have ever seen is none other than Adam Fenric...he is wearing a long, red wig, a black beanie, a black leather jacket and green fingerless gloves. He absolutely stares a Death Ray at both Emery and Amy. Emery can do nothing but put her hand over her mouth as her shoulders very clearly falter and Amy turns her head, and slowly her entire back. Holly, trying to be as professional as she can here, steps forward and jams the mic into the face of Adam Fenric.

HOLLY HUNT:
Emery Layton! You're looking chirpy as usual.

Silence. He does not move. He is very much like Emery was AS Adam earlier, stoicly gazing into the distance.

HOLLY HUNT:
Do you have any words for your opponents tonight, Ad-- Emery?

He just stands there, completely still. He has no words. He doesn't look like he'd be able to produce them without exploding with anger. Holly turns to us.

HOLLY HUNT:
The silence of Emery Layton says it all, folks! Well, I certainly can't wait for--

ADAM FENRIC (As Emery Layton):
Oi oi oi, wait a sec, what you doing, I ain't said nothing yet! Yo, gimme that mic, people gotta hear what this dirty, no-good pavee's gotta say, know what I mean?

Emery and Amy turn around immediately. Holly is reduced to completely stunned silence as Adam pulls the mic away from her and looks right down into us. He is putting on what appears to be a dead-on Irish accent. His arms are now floppier and his demeanour is overall much more lax and lazier. He snorts and spits to his side.

ADAM FENRIC (As Emery Layton):
Alright, now lemme give you the real deal now, yeah? Lemme lay down the law in this jungle and adjust the picture frame, cos I got a lotta things to say to a lotta people and what I'm saying right now is to YOU, Amy Jo and Jake Rogers. You pair of gobshites think you can come in, outta nowhere, steal my belt? Nah, man. That ain't on, and I ain't gonna have it. Down our way, we don't give up without a fight, so that what I'm gonna do. 'Swhat I done all my life, and I ain't stopping for no one! As for my plan? Ahhh, who needs 'em, eh? Plans ain't worth nothing these days. Anyway, what else you got, Holl?

Holly is still silent.

ADAM FENRIC (As Emery Layton):
That all you got? Ah, it's fine, I might gotta dash anyway cos I gotta go meet this dude and talk about this thing? It's a long story but involves the Dalai Lama, Rupert Von Hammerstrap and a toaster. You don't wanna know, but it's all pretty wild.

He reaches inside his jacket to pull out a hip-flask! And he drinks from it! He wipes his mouth with the sleeve of his jacket.

ADAM FENRIC (As Emery Layton):
Right, better be off. I'll meet you guys out there, yeah? And you best not be late, cos man, you miss this and your life's gonna be dropkicks and Prikasas, get what I'm saying? Catch you in a mo!

Turning to Amy and Em, his expression changes to the one they hate, that smug, "I-told-you-so/anything-you-can-do" expression as he flaps his lapels, pushes the mic back into the chest of Holly- who absent-mindedly takes it- and spins out of our view, even walking off at the same speed Emery walks off. We turn fully to Amy- wide-eyed- and Emery- mouth agape. Holly is also shocked, and as she turns to Em and Amy, she has one final question...

HOLLY HUNT:
Did...did that just happen? He really went for it.

Em just nods. She snorts and is about to spit but then realises Adam just aped that exact thing, so she stops mid-snort and just looks off before Holly puts the mic in her face.

EMERY LAYTON:
Yeah. Well...He should try harder.

And Em walks off, leaving Amy and Holly alone. They look at each other, as Layton & Fenric appear to have successfully swapped roles for the night and we fade to our next segment.
