  2. *As the song begins to play throughout the arena strobe lights start to transition between purple, blue, and white. With no hesitation Jack jogs out on stage, and is met with a negative reaction. Forté taunts about having the Intercontinental Title with a smug expression, and quickly makes his way ringside to retrieve a microphone.*

    Cut the damn music off, cut it off!

    *Jack makes his way into the ring after while music comes to a hault.*

    Do you guys want to see Marcus come out here and fulfill his promise of going through everyone in this tournament!?

    The crowd lets off a huge pop for Marcus

    Well, I have some bad news for you then. It's just not going to happen, not tonight. Not against me. Because unlike Kid, I'm not going to make this easy for you. Nah man, you're not going to just breeze through this tournament on a freaking technicality. I'll be damned if that happens for a second time. You're not going to get the same pass Michael of all people got.

    Who knows, if he was still around you'd probably be facing your good friend right now. But he's not, and you're not facing Trip. Unlike you and your friend, I do what I'm going to say. It's as simple as that, Marcus.

    You're not going to rise from the ashes like a mighty Phoenix, and you're not going to make anyone "give into the order!" And do you know why? Simply because I said so.

    Jack is met with more boos from the crowd

    *Forté's expression grows more satisfied, as if he thrives from the negative aura.*

    Go ahead and boo me, but it doesn't make it any less true. Ya see, the greatest competitors that ever walked down that ramp didn't come out here and didn't tell you what they felt like doing, they told you what they were going to do and then they did it. And they damn sure didn't care about getting on your good side in the process.

    That's what separates Marcus and myself. From him breaking the mold of being a great competitor within this company. He came out here and promised each and every single one of you that he was going to go through this tournament, and take out Rita for the Intercontinental title. I'm simply telling you that I will be the one facing Rita for the Intercontinental championship, and I will be the one to take that title from her. No one else.

    *Jack leans on the nearest apron as he utters his final words for now.*

    If you don't like what you're hearing Marcus, then come out here and make me give in. Don't let me win this on a technicality like you did, let me actually rip this opportunity from your grasp.

    *Forté pushes back from the apron and waits for a response from Marcus.*

  3. *Marcus walks down the ramp staring straight ahead at Forte with a smile across his face. He grabs a mic that was placed on the ring steps and enters the ring*

    The time for battle has come again. The smell of dried blood on the ground calls to me. My adrenaline is coursing through my body making each moment seem like a blur. The sounds of shattering bone and ripping flesh soothe my burning soul. It is time to feed my addiction. It's time...to establish Order once again.

    This tournament is just a forgone conclusion. I, Marcus Anthony, leader of The Order of Night will destroy any and every thing in my path to face Rita for the IC title. The simple fact that Jack Forte thinks he can walk in this ring and think he can take me down? He's got a better chance of selling ice to an Eskimo.
    *crowd laughs*

    Every thing I've set out to do in this company, I've done. No one has had more success in their first few months of competition like me. I lead the greatest team in IWT history to the top of the mountain while you were still doing Jack shit with your life. The only thing I'm hearing from you is a bunch of hype from a kid trying to get over. You can call me out for my opponent no showing all you want but the fact is this....I'm here right in front of you just seconds away from ending your story HERE AND NOW.

    *crowd gives mixed reaction*

    One match in...one victory.

    *Marcus slow claps*

    And what a victory it was. You defeated my brother, Trip. A courageous effort against all odds and you came out on top. It seems as if fate has big things in store for you kid. As we all know, fate is a cruel thing.

    It gives you the ups of life *points up*
    And the downs *points down*

    Tonight.....down is the only place you're going as you'll be looking up at the arena lights wondering what you got yourself into. Destroying your hopes and dreams of getting that title shot...is my Forte.

    So give in to the Order, while you've still got a career ahead of you

  4. Destroying, looking up at the lights, your determination to intimidate me, the crappy jokes... man, I feel like I've got a serious case of déjà vue. I can swear I've been in this position before. Oh yeah, with Trip. We went through this exact same little cliché, but when it was all said and done I was the one who walked out with the victory, just as you mentioned. Once I'm done saying what little I have to say you'll try to retort with some more intimidation tactics, like raising your voice to try to get your point across, getting up in my face, and shouting your little mantra when you're done. It'll be a good effort and you'll probably win a couple people over in the process, but it'll all be in vain. Because nothing is going to change this from being another repeat for me.

    *Jack takes a couple of steps back to size up Marcus before continuing.*

    You must be real proud of yourself, more-so than I seem to be with myself. Saying that you've done more than what most rising stars have done in your first couple months. Right, because taking over eight months to gain your first title while being the backdrop in a tag team, not the leader, qualifies for a future Hall of Fame slot. Surely you did a lot with those titles, right? Oh, no, you lost them in just over a month in your very first defense. You bounced back though, you had to! Wait, you proceeded to no-show ninety percent of your matches since then and the one match you show up in months to you win via no-show!

    The crowd let's off a partial boo

    *Forté claps sarcastically before picking up where he left off.*

    Bravo Mr.Anthony, bravo. Your biggest match in quite some memory and it's marked with a big asterisk right besides it. And after everything I just got off of my chest I realized something, Marcus. You're nothing but a big ol' asterisk yourself. That's right, all you've done your entire time in the IWT is taint your good friend Trip's credibility by hanging at his hip, and when you aren't attached to him you're pretty much nowhere to be seen!

    *Jack proceeds to close the gap between the two an grows a somewhat signature satisfied smirk.*

    I'd laugh but it really isn't that funny, it's just pathetic. You're branching out by being apart of this tournament and instead of showing everyone what you can do, all you've done is practically recite what Trip said. It's like you're painting this picture for everyone to see that The Order is just as much as a cohesive unit as they once were, and that you two are practically one. It's something that I really don't comprehend, because why try to duplicate something that only got you a mere month with some glory before you fell from grace? I get that you want to take what you can get, but why not strive for more? Oh wait, you are. But there's just always someone like myself that has to remind you were your place truly is.

    And putting people like you in your place, well that's my Forté pal.

  5. I'll shoot dude a text.
  6. So what's the plan? Do we start the voting, or do I win via forfeit??
  7. Up to you bro, it's been 2 weeks so I don't have anything against throwing out the F.
