Janae Robinson walked throught the backstage area of the TNA arena. This was her first day as a knock-out. She was nervous as hell, and she didn't really know what she was doing. Janae was about 5'6 with brown hair and blonde highlights. She had bright green eyes. Her dad used to say she had a smile that could light up a room.
She took a deep breath before she came to the knock-out's lockeroom and walked in. All the knock-outs were getting ready for the show that night. Janae sat her stuff down on one of the benches, and looked around. Gail Kim was the only girl in the lockeroom. God she was so gorgeous and extremely talented. She saw Gail Kim walk over to her. "You must be the new knock-out. I'm Gail Kim"
"I'm Janae. Nice to meet you" Janae replied.
"So you nervous?" Gail asked.
"Oh god yes. I know I'm gonna screw up something" Janae replied.
"You will be fine. I saw your tape, and you're just like me when you started" Gail said.
"That's really nice of you to say" Janae said.
"Well I gotta go get ready for the show, but I will definitely talk to you later, and good luck on your first day" Gail said getting up.
"Thanks" Janae replied.
Gail waved and walked out of the lockeroom. Janae sighed and looked around the lockeroom again. She was finally here, and the feeling felt great. She decided to go walk around and get familiar with stuff. As she walked down the hallway, she saw stage people, and wrestlers standing around talking. She couldn't believe she was going to be working with the people that she saw on tv. This was a dream come true.
As she turned the corner, she suddenly ran in to something hard and fell down on her ass. She looked up in to the eyes of none other than Christian Cage.
"Watch where you're going" Christian said looking down at her.
"I...I...I'm sorry" Janae said stuttering.
"How come I've never seen you around here?" Christian asked.
Janae got up off the ground. "I'm new here and it's my first day"
"Well if you know what's good for you, you would stay out of my way" Christian said walking away.
"You have to excuse Christian, he's kind of a jerk" Janae said from behind her. She turned around and saw AJ styles staring back at her.
"It's ok, I guess I should of expected it" Janae said.
"I'm AJ" AJ replied.
"I'm Janae" Janae said.
"I could show you around if you want" AJ suggested.
"I'd like that" Janae replied.
"So where you from?" AJ asked.
"California" Janae answered.
"Wow that's far from here. I bet the move was hard" AJ said.
"Yea it was at first, but I did it to live out my dream" Janae replied.
"Well good for you" AJ said.
The two walked to the catering area to see Jim waiting there for Janae.
"Janae! Just the person I was looking for!" Jim exclaimed.
"Hi Mr. Cornette." Janae said sweetly.
"Listen. I'm putting you in a story line with Christian Cage. It will be good for him and you. Here is your script. Good luck tonight." Jim said before hurrying off.
As Jim hurried off Janae groaned as she plopped down in a chair. AJ saw her expression and sat next to her. "What's wrong?" AJ said. "You know Christian and I started off on the wrong note today. I don't want him to hate me." Janae said.
"How could anyone hate you? You're perfect!" AJ said.
Janae looked at him weird. Did he just say she was perfect? once AJ realized what he said he covered his mouth with his hand and turned his head around. Did he really just say that?
"Well I should get going. Thanks for showing me around" Janae said.
"Sure, no problem" AJ replied.
"Well bye" Janae said.
"See ya" AJ said as Janae walked down the hallway.
"What was that all about?" Tomko said joining AJ.
"Nothing. Just talking to the new knockout" AJ said.
"Don't let that girl mess with your head AJ" Tomko replied.
"Dude, I just met her" AJ said.
"Yea, but I know how you get when you meet a pretty girl" Tomko replied.
"Whatever man. I gotta go get ready for the show tonight" AJ said walking away.
Tomko let out a laugh and made his way to grab something to eat.
Janae went to look for Christian, to talk about their storyline. She found his lockeroom and knocked on the door.
"Come in!" She heard him yell as she opened the door.
"Umm hi. I'm Janae, you know from earlier" Janae said poking her head in to the lockeroom.
"What do you want?" Christian asked.
"Well I was reading the script tonight and it seems we have a storyline together" Janae said going in to the lockeroom.
"Yea, so?" Christian replied.
"Well..." Janae said before she was cut off by Christian.
"Listen sweetie, I don't need to be in a storyline with you nor do I want to. So I'm just going to go to Cornette and ask him to take me out of it" Christian said.
"Umm ok. Well it was nice talking to you...I think" Janae said walking out of the his lockeroom and shutting the door behind her.
"God how can he be such a jerk! Well so much for making an impression on him. I'm glad he's asking to be taken out of the storyline because I don't want to work with a pompus ass like him!" Janae said out loud as she walked back to the knock-outs lockeroom. When she got there she went in and slammed her locker shut.
"You ok?" Gail asked.
"Yea I'm fine. I just found out that I'm stuck in a storyline with Christian. Then I went to find him to talk to him about it, and basically he told me he didn't want to do it" Janae replied.
"What a jerk. That's not like Christian, he's usually nice" Gail said.
"All I know is I don't want to start out in TNA working with him" Janae said leaning against the lockers and crossing her arms across her chest.
"Hey, you're going to be fine" Gail said putting her hand Janae's shoulder.
"Thanks Gail" Janae said giving her a smile.
"No problem. Now go out there tonight and have fun, that's what it's all about" Gail replied.
"I'll try. I'm gonna go talk to Jim" Janae said walking back out in to the hallway. When she reached Jim's office, she heard him yelling at someone. The door was open, so she decided to spy on who was in there with Jim.
"I am not doing this storyline with the new girl!" Christian said yelling.
"Yes you are. It's set and done" Jim replied.
"I refuse. My mind is on winning the world title back from Angle" Christian said.
"Listen to me Cage. If you choose not to go along with this, your title shot is gone and you will be terminated" Jim replied.
"You can't do that!" Christian yelled. "I'm the biggest star in TNA, and without me you've got nothing!"
"I can and I will, now get out of my office!" Jim yelled and pointed to the door.
Christian looked him with flared nostrils, and stormed out of Jim's office. Janae let out a laugh as Christian stormes past her. "Serves him right"
Christian made his way back to his lockeroom and slammed the door behind him. "Damn it!"
"Dude what's wrong?" Petey Williamas asked.
"Cornette's sticking me with the new girl, and he said if I refuse my title shot is gone and I'll get terminated" Christian said sitting on the bench.
"It can't be that bad" Petey said putting a hand on his shoulder.
"Yea it is that bad" Christian replied.
"Dude listen to me. If you don't do this you don't get your title shot, and that's what you want isn't it?" Petey asked.
"Yea I deserve that title" Christian answered.
"Well just do the storyline, and who knows the girl might help you get your title back" Petey said.
"Yea, you're probably right" Christian replied.
"And plus if she's hott, that's not always a bad thing" Petey said letting out a laugh.
"Ok, I'll go find her and talk to her" Christian said standing up.
Janae was in the knock-outs lockeroom looking over the script. It was definitely not what she expected, but this what she had to do to make her start in TNA. She was flipping throught the pages when she heard someone knock on the door. All the other knock-outs were out and about, and she was the only one, so she went over and opened the door to see Christian looking back at her.
"Umm..yes" Janae said.
"Ummm I just wanted to apologize about earlier. I had alot of stuff on my mind and I shouldn't of taken it out on you" Christian replied.
"It's ok. I understand why you acted like that.You get thrown in to a storyline with a girl you don't know, and you're not too happy about it" Janae said.
"So we should go over the script for tonight" Christian replied.
"Yea, you can some in if you want" Janae said.
Christian walked in to the lockeroom and sat down on one of the benches. Janae grabbed her script and opened it to where the storyline started. Christian did the same.
"Ok listen to me, I know you're new and all, but if you help me defeat Angle tonight, I'm sure I can make you one of the top knock-outs in this buisness" Christian said in character.
"And how are you going to do that?" Janae asked in character.
"Just trust me. I'm the champ" Christian replied.
"What do you get out of it?" Janae asked.
"I get the upper hand in our match at Against All Odds this sunday" Christian replied.
"You know Karen is going to interfere" Janae said.
"That's where you come in. Escort me down to the ring, and keep an eye on her" Christian replied.
"Ok you got yourself a deal" Janae said smiling.
"I knew you would say yes" Christian said smirking.
"I think we got it" Janae said putting the script down.
"Yea, I think so" Christian replied.
"Well I should to get ready" Janae said standing up.
"Yea me too. I'll uh see you later then" Christian replied.
"Yea see ya" Janae said.
Christian gave her half a smile before walking out of the lockeroom. Janae took in a breath and then let it out. It was going to be an interesting night.
