Caught Off Guard

Post by Howell Saxon on Sat Apr 29, 2017 11:51 pm

Kelly Kelly makes her way through the backstage hallway, a security guard by her side. They’re moving quickly, and the camera shakes a little as the cameraman jogs to keep up.

Kelly Kelly
We’re looking for Howell Saxon. That man has a lot to answer for after what he did to Sydal.

The stocky, grim-faced security guard nods in agreement.

Kelly Kelly
He doesn’t know we’re approaching him now – we want to catch him off guard.

They round a corner to find Howell leaning against the wall, with a lit cigarette in his mouth. He glances up in surprise.

Kelly Kelly
And there’s our man now. Howell! Have you got five minutes to answer some questions for me? And the fans, for that matter?

As Kelly Kelly and the camera get right up close to Howell, he looks uncharacteristically flustered, quickly tossing his cigarette and mopping his sweaty brow. Kelly Kelly raises the microphone to Howell’s mouth.

Howell Saxon
… What?

Kelly Kelly
We were just wondering if you had any comment on your actions against Matt Sydal last week and your continued disrespect for RPW! The people des-

Howell Saxon
I… I didn’t… you’re not supposed to do this.

Kelly Kelly and the security guard exchange confused, but somewhat amused, glances. Howell stands up, away from the wall, flexing his shoulders to try and mask his nervousness.

Kelly Kelly
Do what, Howell?


Howell Saxon

You didn’t schedule me in for an interview, this isn’t very professional, is i-

Kelly Kelly
Well, Howell, you’ve proven to be a confident and educated man in RPW so far, I wouldn’t have thought this would be such an issue for you!

She glances back at the camera, raising her eyebrows – she knows she’s seeing a side of the RPW World Champion he doesn’t like to be made public. With an uncomfortable grimace, Howell turns away from the camera and tries to storm off down the hallway, but the security guard grabs his arm, holding him back. Anger flashes in Howell’s face.

Howell Saxon
I’m warning you, you fat shit, if you don’t get off me…

Kelly Kelly
Howell, please! Haven’t you shown enough aggression and nastiness to your opponents in the ring? Don’t take it out on our security too, they’re just doing their job!

Howell snaps his head round to glare at Kelly Kelly.

Howell Saxon
… Doing their job?

Kelly Kelly and the security guard nod. Kelly Kelly edges forward, raising the mic towards Howell – she can tell he’s finally got something to say. She gestures for the security guard to let him go, which he does. Howell takes the microphone, but less forcefully than normal – he still looks awkward as he raises it to his mouth.

Howell Saxon
I’ve got a j-

Howell coughs, hunching forward. Kelly Kelly and the security guard step back, giving him space. Finally, Howell finishes clearing his throat and straightens upright, pushing his shoulders back. His signature smirk even creeps onto his face.

Howell Saxon
As the RPW World Champion, I’ve got a job to do myself. That job in question consists of asserting my authority, showcasing real talent… showing that cesspool of idiocy you call an audience what a real fighter looks like.

The Howell Saxon we’ve come to know is back, but there’s still a hint of awkwardness hanging over the backstage atmosphere.

Howell Saxon
I was sending a message last week. A message that should be abundantly clear to Atlas and everybody else – you don’t put the world champion up against a failure like Sydal! That worthless little moron got what he deserved. Quite frankly, I hope he never wrestles again.

Kelly Kelly looks uncomfortable and upset at Howell’s flippancy towards Sydal, but not that surprised. Howell stares the camera down, his smirk gone and his face contorted in bitterness, anger and aggression.

Howell Saxon
So the next man to face me in the ring had better watch out. Because I’m not about to lose my title anytime soon, much less go any easier on my opponents.

Howell tosses the mic to the floor and storms off down the hallway. Kelly Kelly and the security guard exchange knowing glances. Kelly Kelly ducks down, picking up the microphone, and addresses the camera with a warm smile.

Kelly Kelly
Well. We certainly did seem to catch Mr Saxon off guard. I think we’ll all be interested to see what he does next…
