FADE IN on a weightlifting bar sitting idle on the gym floor.

A pair of legs move into the frame and plant themselves behind the bar.

A pair of hands, taped and chalked, reach down to grip.

MOE DAVIS (off-Screen)
I always try to do the right thing ...even if it means losing everything.

Cut to a clip of the movie Do the Right Thing. Da Mayor drops wisdom on Mookie.

Da Mayor
Doctor...always do the right thing.

MOOKIE
That’s it?

Da MAYOR
That’s it.

MOOKIE
I got it. I'm gone.

The hands dig into the bar deeper for grip.

MOE DAVIS (OFF-SCREEN)
But what they don't tell you about losing everything...

From Beauty and the Beast.

Belle
It's not until you lose everything that you truly appreciate...

The tape speed slows to a crawl.

Belle's face distorts, turns to static.

Those hands grip the bar tighter...

The lifter cleans and squats...

A grunting Moe Davis, teeth clinched, pouring sweat, pushes a challenging amount of iron to the heavens.

Moe inches the bar closer to the sky until...

Yes! Got it! Moe stands firm on both feet, supporting the weight. Vascular arms and puffed out cheeks.

*CLUNK*

Moe drops the weight. This elicits a spattering of cheers from spectators in the gym.

Moe points to the camera, spent but full of adrenaline.

MOE DAVIS
Thanks for the L. When I take Ls, I work that much harder. I appreciate you, moe.

Moe walks out of the frame.

Cut to Moe Davis and Tara Robinson sitting in an interview studio watching that video as it plays on a monitor.

Moe, cleaned up, in a black CWF tracksuit, grins ear to ear. Tara sits opposite of Moe.

TARA
Hello CWF fans! My name is Tara Robinson and sitting here to my right is one of CWF's newest signees - "Go-Go" Moe Davis. Thank you for joining us.

MOE
It's a pleasure to be here.

TARA
That was a pretty cool clip we just watched.

MOE
Yeah, that was just a little something I made for my followers on social media.

TARA
You made that yourself?

MOE
Yeah, that's just me having fun with it.

TARA
You talked about taking Ls, taking losses. You wouldn't be referring to your loss last week on Evolution to Autumn Raven?

MOE
Tara, I've been fighting my whole life and sometimes no matter how hard you try, you still lose, knawmean? Even if you're defending what you think is right, even when you KNOW you're right, you still may come down on the wrong side of things.

Moe sighs.

MOE
I lost last week. No excuses to be made. Would I have handled it differently? Not at all. Because I know who I am and I know what I stand for. And like I said in the video, losing only makes me hungrier, Tara.

TARA
Well, this week on Evolution, you have a new challenge, as you team up with Sebastian Diakos to take on the CWF Tag Team Champions, Kendo and The Crimson Ghost.

MOE
Can't wait!

TARA
You and Sebastian have never teamed together before. How does it feel to have to depend on a new partner for such a big opportunity?

MOE
If he's as motivated as I am, then we're not going to have a problem. Besides, Sebastian is six foot six inches, two hundred fifty two pounds. That sounds like a guy I want on my team, moe.

TARA
And what do you think of your opponents on Tuesday - the Samoan Ghost Connection.

MOE
I know that the fans can't get enough of 'em.

Moe and Tara laugh on that comment.

MOE
But seriously, Kendo is a mean dude and Ghost is wild and unpredictable. I'm gonna bring my best and I know those guys are going to bring it. So, I'm looking forward to a good fight.

TARA
What's the future hold for Moe Davis in CWF?

MOE
That's a secret! Dang, Tara! Nah, forreal? I have plans. Big plans, but I can't talk about 'em just yet. The fans are just going to have to sit tight. But I promise, I got a surprise or two up my sleeve.

TARA
Moe Davis...thank you for joining us.

MOE
Thank you.
