As all know, Paige Lewis, SCW World Heavyweight and Alternative Champion, is injured and will be missing quite a bit of in ring time. SCW.com first reported that Neela Shizeguma, SCW General Manager, decided that Paige Lewis may choose a champion to take up her honor at Overdrive 54. Now, in this exclusive feature, Paige Lewis reveals who will defend the coveted championship at Overdrive 54 against Dario and Mr. Creed.
As the video begins, Paige Lewis is shown seated before her coffee table. A mug in her right hand is steaming as she raises it to her lips to sip at the tea. Setting it down, she looks deep into the camera as it pans out to show her belts, the SCW Alternative Championship and the SCW World Heavyweight Championship laid out on the table before her. Her left arm was in a cast and sling and she gingerly moved it as she relaxed backward into her Captains chair and spoke.
Paige Lewis: First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has called, emailed, text, and facetimed me to check on my condition as well as to congratulate me on a hard fought victory. At Domination, I did what I said I would do. I defeated Brian Kennedy and retained the SCW World Heavyweight Championship. But, Kennedy became frustrated that he couldn’t get the job done as yet, and decided to break my arm intentionally. No matter, I had an insurance policy in place, and I dropped that wild ape like the beast he is.
But, now I have a dilemma. The Alternative Championship MUST be defended at Overdrive 54. And while I think we can all agree that I’m the undisputed best in SCW right now, not even I can stave off two competitors while I have a broken arm that needs to heal and regain strength. So, as we all again know, Neela has given me the chance to choose someone to represent me in this match. I knew immediately that I wanted it to be someone who lives and breathes for SCW, someone passionate about this company like I am. Even more, passionate about this particular championship.
The SCW Alternative Championship has a history that is woven into the very fabric of what makes SCW what it is today. It’s an honor that has not passed around very often. People who have held this championship have fought tooth and nail to earn it, and even harder to keep it. And that is why my choice of who I want to walk down to the ring on my behalf went from the entire roster, to just a few.
The champion grinned now as she reached for her mug again, taking a long swig of it. Setting the mug down, she continued.
Paige: Now, obviously my little list consisted of Jessica Tendonin, the first person to elevate the Alternative Championship, Adatu Urakih, the undefeated International Heavyweight Champion who previously won it by competing in a hellacious match and then walking back into the arena to win it in the very next match, and of course…Emily Desmond, a woman who redefined this championship in a way that nobody did before or likely will for a long time.
But you know…I am so fucking angry…so my choice is…none of them. You see, I’m laid up here, unable to defend it myself because of one person. Brian Kennedy did this to me. And because of that…I am choosing, no, I am DEMANDING that Brian Kennedy take this championship and defend it for me. You weren’t good enough to beat me in any of the three matches we had, so you decided to injure me. Now, you’ll defend my championship for me, and when I’m cleared to compete again, you will walk your ass down to MY ring and hand it back to me. And let’s be clear…you WILL return it. Now…my tea is getting warm. See you all…very soon.
The scene faded now as the champion smiled into her tea.
