(FADEIN to a bright, shiny television studio. A dark-haired man in his late twenties appears to be going over some final copy with a producer or stage manager, somebody with a large headset over one ear and clipboard in hand, anyway. The lights are down; the two men are backlit by a series of monitors behind them, much like a smaller version of the CSWAvision “video wall” that is used on the PRIMETIME set. Each monitor shows a different scene from the CSWA – some of them appear to be raw footage with editing numbers running underneath, others appear to be lower-quality house show footage, while most are clips from produced PRIMETIMEs or pay-per-views. The screens begin to change from scene to scene in growing speed as the Bill Buckley voiceover seems to tell us that the CSWA’s new company slogan is CSWA: A Legacy Never Ends. As he finishes, the screens now showing the CSWA logo and slogan, switch over to the new VERSUS logo, and the lights come up.)
JOHN SIMONS: It’s a new season for the CSWA, and a brand new program. Welcome to VERSUS. I’m John Simons, coming to you from Studio B at CS Towers. As the CSWA gears up for its annual PRIMETIME Pooljam Tour aboard the luxury Parsons Cruise Liner 2, we thought we’d show you not only where we left off, but where we’re headed, starting with CSWA PRIMETIME in Miami coming up this weekend.
