“Over the Ropes Volume 1 was about beginnings and a climb to the top for the main character, Phoenix," said writer Jay Sandlin. "In Over the Ropes: Broken KayFabe, Phoenix sits at the peak of the wrestling business. Will he thrive as the champ or become just another wrestling tragedy?”
“Cults, flesh sculptors, and chainsaws —Show’s End: The Second Coming is horror fantasy at its absolute maddest," said writer Anthony Cleveland (he/him). "This is a project the team and I have been eager to share with fans since we wrapped Volume 1. The story is bigger, we get closer to our characters, and the monsters run wild. Grab your taffy apples & ‘shine and come back to the Show with us…”

Welcome to volume two of Over the Ropes, the 1990’s pro-wrestling series. SFW’s hit TV show, Explode, takes the wrestling world by storm with champion, Phoenix, scoring big ratings while his girlfriend, Courtney, learns the ropes as new wrestler, Scorch. The gloves come off when a rival promotion led by Jason’s estranged father, Buddy Peacock, invades Explode. When Courtney’s injured, Jason must choose between family and fame in a bout with permanent stipulations. When the final bell rings, it’ll be Phoenix vs. Peacock-- father vs. son, in a main event crowning a unified champion. Will Phoenix rise again or lose it all in a puff of smoke?

What’s left of Daxton Rickles’ Circus is now performing on street corners to get by, but a series of mysterious murders surrounding our troop forces them to head south for safety in a town operated and occupied by circus performers.
However, the town is no longer what it once was. It is now ruled by a young, charismatic cult figure named Leviticus “Miss Levy” Jones, who believes those born “deformed” are the only ones truly perfect in the eyes of the creator. The longer the group stays, the more sinister the town is revealed to be.
Meanwhile, a forgotten figure from Loralye’s past lurks in the distance and is coming to reveal her true path.
