Gentleman Raven Posted August 30, 2017 Share Posted August 30, 2017 http://i.imgur.com/ZvnFwTy.jpg Mid Atlantic Wrestling: The Documentary Starring 'The Trademark' Thomas Morgan Prologue [After you press play on your Netflix account, the scene lights up to show an empty desk that almost looks like it is inside of a prison. A small window up in the corner allows light inside the room. Otherwise, the room is pretty dingy and dark. A cough can be heard from behind the camera and then a voiceover begins to speak.] [The Grand Avatar:] "Are we on? Yes? January 2016. This is a month that looks like it will bring about a change in Mid Atlantic Wrestling. The change has come in the form of a brand new person in charge of the direction of the company. The owner, Sam Keith, has brought in a man that many people believe should have made his mark in the industry a long time ago. Introducing a 23 year professional wrestling veteran, Thomas Morgan." http://i.imgur.com/wMbiRgS.jpg [After a moment, Thomas Morgan walks into view of the camera. He reaches out and pulls back a chair, a screech sounds as he does so. He sits down in the chair and looks up into the camera.] [Thomas Morgan:] "Thank you for having me this evening." [The Grand Avatar:] "Thank you for being a part of this documentary. As you know, each and every month, we will be bringing the best of Mid Atlantic Wrestling to Netflix. The ins and outs of the professional wrestling business will be brought to light for the fans and for the aspiring professional wrestlers. To begin with, please tell the viewers a little bit about yourself and why you are here." [Thomas Morgan shifts slightly uncomfortably in the chair before finding a more relaxed position.] [Thomas Morgan:] "My name is 'The Trademark' Thomas Morgan. As of January 1, 2016, I am the Head Booker of Mid Atlantic Wrestling. This means that, among many other duties, I book the matches. I make the decisions on who to put on the card and who to leave out. I take this job very seriously because professional wrestling has been my life for 23 years. I am 41 years old and I am from the Canadian Province of Quebec. This means that I speak both English and French fluently. I will be taking you through this first month of Mid Atlantic Wrestling. In the month of January, we hold a tournament called The Rip Chord Invitational. The winner of this tournament receives a trophy and a bonus. One of the first things that I have done, however, is to up the ante. I have decided that the winner of the Rip Chord Invitational will receive a Confederation Of The Territories World Heavyweight title shot at our second event named The Wrestling Classic. However, I am getting ahead of myself." [The Grand Avatar:] "So why Mid Atlantic? Why did you choose this promotion?" [Thomas Morgan:] "I have been viewed by many as one of those 'coulda, shoulda, woulda' stories. I have wrestled for over two decades without becoming part of a major promotion. I believe one of the reasons for that is that I am not willing to cut the throats of my fellow competitors to get ahead. This is a cut-throat business where those willing to sacrifice their friends get to the top. We have seen it time and again with Sammy Bach and Teddy Powell a good example. I am simply unwilling to do that to someone who is running the same race and jumping the same hurdles that I am." [The Grand Avatar:] "There are some who say that you have done just that to Jay Fair. You are taking over his former position, right?" [Thomas Morgan:] "I have actually spoken with Jay and gotten his permission to take the job. I would not have taken the job if that were not true. He would like to focus on his family and his refereeing duties. I cannot say that I blame him. The tolls that this job can take on you are tremendous when you are in just one position. But, back to your question, why MAW? The truth is that I have chosen this promotion because it is not in competition with the big boys. That is not what this promotion is about. This promotion is about developing the talent of the future. As Head Booker of MAW, I will not be cutting any throats. I will simply be developing talent until they are ready to move on to another promotion. Once they are contacted by any other promotion, they have a choice to make. If they believe they are far enough in their training, they can move on to their future. If they believe they are not far enough along, they can decline the other promotion and remain on the active roster here. However, we do have a rule that if you work for MAW it must be your only promotion." [The Grand Avatar:] "What about Greg Gauge?" [Thomas Morgan actually cracks a smile when asked about Greg Gauge] [Thomas Morgan:] "He's the boss's son. At the end of the day, he is here because he believes in what his father is doing and wants to help. But he, also, wants to further his own career. His father handles his contract." [The Grand Avatar:] "Alright. Now, let's begin with the very first month of Mid Atlantic Wrestling." [The Prologue video comes to an end with the credits rolling.] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
