This is a sequel to The Star Division so if you haven't read that one you probably should or this story will make no sense lol
It's been just about a year since Punk was arrested, and so much has changed. Well, I suppose I should start from the top. After Punk's arrest, me and Jeff started training harder than ever. His knee started healing extremely fast, probably due to all the stress relief. But, unfortunately, his ego healed even faster. At first, I looked past the attitude he started getting because I figured he was probably still going through some stuff. Then, he started showing up late to practice, giving me tons of attitude and complaining about everything. Jeff's ego also started to rub off on Morrison, who demanded to be called JoMo from now on. He now thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. Melina actually matured a whole lot and was way more pleasant now. Her and Eve never really rekindled their friendship, but they were somewhat friends now.
Speaking of Eve, her and Jeff didn't really have a relationship at all anymore. They started to have a small budding romance for a little while but then Jeff started thinking he was better than everyone so they became "just friends." Eve soon began dating Christian so her and Jeff pretty much stopped talking altogether. It was probably for the better due to the fact Jeff had turned into a male version of Maryse. Which was ironic, because he actually started dating her. They started going out about a week after Jeff was cleared to compete. His return was a huge success, becoming champion just two months after and having not been defeated since. Jeff's return success was partly due to the fact him and JoMo formed a team called "The A-Listers" and were always present during the other's matches. They didn't actually "cheat" to help each other win, they just provided a distraction.
Jeff had become a lot more aggressive since returning, but also a lot more cocky. He wasted so much time showboating in the ring, time that has nearly cost him the title quite a few times. Luckily for him, JoMo was there to distract his opponent. Him and JoMo were pretty much each other's only friend, with the exception of Melina and Maryse of course. But Jeff had formed a friendship with The Big Show, who had become Jeff's defender as of late. Whenever anyone in the locker room would start making fun of or messing with Jeff he would stick up for him. Jeff was pretty much an entirely different person when he was around Big Show. It was the only time he actually genuinely smiled. He didn't know why Big Show put up with Jeff though, probably because Show was just about the nicest person on Earth.
Jeff did also have another "friend," though. Santino had pretty much began worshipping Jeff when he won the championship and started begging to be an a-lister, so, Jeff took advantage of this and made Santino his own little personal assistant. Santino did anything Jeff wanted him to. Bringing him sodas, food, and anything else Jeff wanted. Unfortunately for Santino, Jeff's attitude got even worse than ever when he turned 18. Jeff partied pretty much every night with JoMo, Melina, and Maryse, leaving Santino to do any responsibilities Jeff had. I had tried talking to Santino once, to try to talk some sense into him, but Santino refused to hear it, claiming him and Jeff were close friends and he just liked doing Jeff favors. So, I then went to Vince to talk to him about Jeff's behavior and not only did Vince love it, but he was encouraging Jeff to act like that. He claimed it was great for ratings and, while ratings had improved, they improved for all the wrong reasons. People weren't tuning in to see wrestling, they were tuning in to watch Jeff act like a bitch.
I tried talking some sense into Jeff once as well, but it was extremely awkward because we hadn't spoken since his return. The moment Jeff was cleared to compete, he left. No note, no goodbye, no thanks, nothing. Him and JoMo just packed up their stuff and left. Melina was the only one classy enough to stick around and say goodbye. I was seriously hoping she would rub off on Jeff and JoMo, but I've pretty much given up by now. They didn't want anything to do with me, so I would stop being concerned with them. That's how it went for a while, until Jeff purposely cost me my championship match against Chris Jericho. I was never really given an explanation for that, it's not like I could never actually talk to him nowadays anyway. Apart from us being on separate shows, whenever I did see him Maryse was always pawing at him. Thank god he was still classy as far as relationships went. So, as far as I know, he was still as much of a virgin as he was when I last saw him. It was easy to tell by Maryse's behavior that she was extremely sexually frustrated. It was actually kind of funny at times, but it sucked for her opponents with how aggressive she was getting.
Cena had been pretty good lately. He gave up on Maryse and started dating Mickie James. It was nice nice for him but right now they were in their "honeymoon phase" and couldn't keep their hands off each other. It was extremely annoying, especially when they had their little "you hang up first" chats. As for Eve and Christian, they may as well not be dating. Christian was making every attempt to be nice to her, sending her flowers, inviting her out to eat, but she always seemed to have some excuse. To be honest, I'm pretty sure she only started dating Christian in the first place to make Jeff jealous, and was now just stringing him along. I feel really bad for the guy, he's pretty much getting friend zoned while in a relationship. Ouch.
I really wanted to have a nice, civilized chat with Jeff, to see how he's been doing. But the only way I could find out anything about how he's been is through sites like TMZ and the paparazzi. They had been all over him since the Punk scandal had happened. Every little thing he did was on the news. They were constantly shoving cameras in his face, throwing random comments and questions at him just to try to get a reaction. I'm pretty sure that was part of the reason Jeff started developing his huge ego in the first place. When they first started hounding Jeff, he was extremely insecure. I literally had to force him to eat most of the time. And even though it was obvious Jeff wasn't in a very good place, the paparazzi continued to pester him about everything. It looked like he was holding up okay, but unfortunately, that was probably just an act he was putting on for the cameras.
Well that's pretty much what been going on in between The Star Division and this one. Let me know what you think! If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions then please review!
