  3. An explosion of fiery pyrotechnics hit the stage, causing a lot of fans to jump. The lights turn a blood red and this is erringly similar to what Spawn used previously when he was masked. Could this be another attempt at mind games by Ivy? We don’t have time to question as here theme music begins to play.

    The crowd is very quick to boo as the self-proclaimed “Empress of Fear” enters the arena, this time wearing a slightly different attire with red flame designs on them and she has two things in her hands. The first is a microphone and the second is a mask. It is black and red and looks somewhat similar to the mask Spawn once wore. She walks slowly towards the ring, smiling. Her mind games have no end it seems as she raises the mask to taunt the fans and walks around the ring to the side closer to the hard camera. Sliding on the apron, she hangs upside-down from the ropes and laughs. She eventually goes between the middle and top rope and enters the ring where she paces around the ring and her theme music fades.

    “When I look at the past in IWT, the strange have almost always found a place to thrive. This is further cemented today when I see the likes of Arno Frye torturing people, trying to create his own masterpiece out of this mess of society. There is Cousin Edward, a reject to society who wants nothing more than to be a kid again and has the mysterious Doctor Cyrus Occult guiding him. To the deranged Schizo, a man who killed a midget of all things by merely a phone call, to, of course, me!” Giggles. “A girl who just loves fear and what it can do to a person, because after all, fear is power. But through all this, there was once one man I looked up towards. Someone who I once thought was demented, remorseless, a reject like myself, but most of all, unstoppable. That man…Spawn.”

    Saying his name brings some cheers from the fans, who perhaps have grown to respect Spawn more. Ivy seems to shudder at saying that name, but she continues.

    “Long before I joined IWT, one of the stories that were running rampant around IWTMania was the question of if the monster known as Spawn could ever be stopped? I felt that almost inspiring that someone so different from the status quo I despise could run rampant over these pathetic people. And it would seem like his rampage would reach its climax at IWTMania with him crushing the dreams of the wretched Aids Johnson. Yet, he was stopped. Then when he had a chance to bounce back against the rebellious Daniel Jacobs, he fell yet again. In a matter of months, your illusion of a monster was broken my appreciation of you was diminished.”

    She bows her head down, her hand with the mask drops down and she raises the microphone to her face which is covered by her hair.

    “Then when you came back, you finally revealed who you were and that…” She raises the mask. “Your mask was not just physical but metaphorical of who you were. While you were the demon that plagued this company for many months, you were haunted by your own. You wanted to exterminate these demons so you went to the lord himself. They say “He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.” If he has this magic power, then where was my healing? Where was my forgiveness? That’s right, there was none for who I was! Instead, he let the scars deepen, more to form. My heart ached, my mind was lost and soon the person who I was died. But in the end, I didn’t need that healing from him. The only thing that allowed me to move on was the realization of the power of fear and that lead to the birth of Ivy Hale.”

    She pulls her hair back and looks at the crowd, who are continuing to voice their displeasure. Rolling her eyes she continues.

    “And unlike who you were, Ivy Hale understands she is not like anyone else. Ivy Hale doesn’t desire to live like anyone else. I don’t aim for values of respect, for labours like hard work, or to accomplish dreams and give myself justification. But most of all, I never needed…” She looks towards the mask and raises it again. “To wear a mask, to strike fear into the hearts of men, women, and children. Nor do I hide who I am to the world.” Tossing the mask away, outside of the ring, now she is solely focused on her message. “Because when I look at both of us, Spawn. We are complete opposites in many ways. You’re a man who has found his salvation, while I am a girl who has fallen so far. You tried to play the demon, I once tried to be like everyone else. But most of all, now you have fallen into the same trap as everyone else and I have accepted who I am. We went down the same path in opposite directions and here, at IWT Anarchy, we meet with our history following us.”

    Walking towards the side of the ring near the entrance-way, Ivy climbs the ropes so she is standing on the middle rope and looking towards where Spawn will come out.

    “Because you see, I look at the past because the previous chapters in our life tell a tale of where we’ve been, why we got to this point, and who we are. Your demons and your reactions made you. It's the same for me. Our past can't be ignored. We can't forget what made us. But most of all, past misdeeds mustn't go unpunished! That's why for your lies you've made, for failing when it mattered most... breaking the hearts of those who looked up to you, and mostly for the betrayal you made when you sold yourself to God and started to work for these unappreciative, backstabbing people... you'll suffer the consequences! Tonight, your final chapter will be written with Ivy Hale marking the final period on your page.”

    She cuts a cold chuckle before stepping on the apron and hangs upside down. Smirking and twirling her microphone in her hand, she waits for Spawn, keeping her upside down position until he comes out.

  4. Several moments pass. The crowd begin to murmur between themselves as Spawn still does not come out to face Ivy Hale. A staff worker bangs on the locker room door of Spawn but gets no answer. Inside the locker room sits Spawn on the floor with knees next to his head as he sits in the darkness. He faintly hears the roar of the fans as he sits and listens to Ivy backstage.

    [Spawn] Dear lord. I thank you for giving me the strength and conviction that I needed tonight. Thank you for watching over me with your light and guiding me on the better road. Thank you for keeping me true and giving me a chance to prove my worth. I am sorry for the bad, but know that I fight for them and for you. I fight for my faith. I fight for you my father. I fight my eternal fight so that no one else will burden my burning flame. I am not scared to come back to this place any longer. I am not scared of the fire inside me. I do not fight the darkness alone because you give me light. You watch over me and keep me safe. I thank you o'holy light. For you are true. For you are mine.

    Miss Hale. You got the picture all wrong. See you can try to read me like a book and pick my brain. But the deeper inside this skull you dig, the darker it gets. You talk about fear but you know nothing of it. Have you swam through the depths of Hell? Have you heard the calls of the damned souls? Have you felt the terror of evil? Because you do not understand fear like I do. I was a monster. I was evil. That sort of darkness, all those scars. They stay with you for life. The voices, the memories... They are bound to me like flies to crap. I can't even look in a mirror without seeing the horror that I try to suppress each and every morning. It doesn't matter how long I pray, he is still inside me. That Miss. Hale. That is true fear. Knowing that one day he could get a little stronger and he could rip his way back out of my body and he could roam the streets once more. That is truly terrifying.

    So don't bother telling me that you are the result of fear young lady. I am cast in fear for every second of my life. That is why I must keep fighting. I need to be stronger than him at all times because if I slip, everyone else pays the price and I can't carry his guilt anymore. I can't sit here in the shadows without seeing them clear as days. Phantoms of my past. Haunting and mocking me. They are the ones who scare me the most. If you could feel my pain Ivy then maybe you would understand why I can't stand it anymore. The darkness inside me might not feel the pain, but I always could. The scars on my body carry a burden. Like bookmarks to the most shameful moments of my existence. I feel my body up and down and I have more scars than I could imagine. As I brush each one I am taken right back. I see it all.

    What I am trying to say here is that there is a lot more to me than I think you could ever know. I am not two dimensional. Don't think like the rest of the people who point and laugh at me. I lost a lot of matches, correct. But beating people never made me the monster that I am. It's the darkness that lies in me that made me a monster. I may not wear a mask but I still wear his crimes. I am the sorry face of a cruel man, but even I can be chosen by the lord. He is the only one willing to look away from my past and focus on my future. With him I feel like I can become a better man. He makes me feel like I need to fight for something better. This is how he shines his light on me. He gives me a purpose to keep fighting to make sure I do no evil ever again. He has saved me and when the long fight is over he will take me into his kingdom and let me rest free of my demons. So why would he not bring you Miss Hale?

    I think you are misguided. Matthew 22:44 says "They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?"
    And God will reply and say truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.
    See God doesn't have the answers. He can't make you a better person. That is up to you Ivy. When you read the scriptures we are not searching for glorification. We are looking for inspiration, a reason to do better than ourselves. When I die I may not go to a literal kingdom in the sky. But I know that as long as I fight for good and prevent my darkness from spilling once more, then when I am at rest I can be free. My demons will no longer matter. Only then will I truly be in a place I can call heaven...

    The staff worker continues to bang on the door as Spawn opens it and looks at him with a very serious look on his face. Spawn waits for him to step out of the way before he heads to the ring.

  5. With this footage seen on the big screen in the arena, the fans cheer, knowing that Spawn is coming towards the ring. Ivy Hale, who is still hanging upside down, has the smirk wiped off her face and is visibly annoyed. She lets herself down and re-enters the ring and paces around as most the fans still give a light cheer, while others sit in wonder what Ivy will do next. Continuing her pace around the ring, she wipes her face with her open hand and runs it through her red locks.


    A cheer is heard again from the fans, but Ivy stops, pausing. Looking all over the arena, she finally rests here eyes on the screen and tension is in her voice. "You're not fooling me!" Saying that brings jeers from the fans again. "Now, you may have been fooled by God's words. You may have fooled these people with that propaganda film "Inside the Mind" on ESPN, and sure, maybe we both agree upon what the past may do to a person, but that doesn't change the fact you can't pull the wool over my eyes and I damn the ones who buy what you say into my never ending nightmare!"

    Her hair flows in front of her face from that fit of rage, but she doesn't seem to care. Same to the fans who are booing her relentlessly now. Instead she focuses directly on the screen, almost blocking all distractions. "How is it that the man who was once the embodiment of hell on earth and brought chaos on this company for months on end can be easily fooled into believing in a major hoax? It's because, while you still claim you're a monster, Spawn is still a human deep down. So easily fooled, manipulated and used as a tool. The Father didn't chose you in specific. Nothing about you is special. He's just a hungry individual looking to take souls and looks to bend his will over this world. To do that, he puts fear in the eyes of mortals, telling a land of fire, sin, and darkness, but he offers tickets to heaven in exchange for your undying allegiance. He'd ask you to wear a cross around your neck as if it is a sign of inclusion to give yourself worth and importance. Don't believe me? Look at you."

    "At one time you'd promise to bring the fall of man. You yourself even claimed that you laid rest to armies, and would even sit on a land of those who you've vanquished. There was this aura of you being a monster, yet deep down you were still human. You wanted things like a golden ticket to your dreams, championships to act as a crown of achievement, human desires. If you're truly are a monster, you wouldn't have cared for those things. As for you now, you're offered a place in heaven in exchange for fighting for him. You bare a cross as a sign of membership and you have purpose. Doesn't that sound so nice for him to do that? No! You're just a weak pawn in his army now. Just another face along with everyone else and your soul is damned! But this isn't the only case of his work."

    Made mildly uncomfortable, she takes a deep breath and rolls her neck. Her mad, broken mind seems to be going wild inside her head.

    "Missionaries, with the task to brainwash people who occupy a land they wish to take, they go down to low means to do so by using their pain and sickness against them. Others promise to expel people of a different background for zero crimes, and they end up destroying entire groups for their failure to follow their code... People's "inspiration" can turn into a tool for fear, manipulation, an excuse to cause pain and outcast those who are different. Such as one young girl. A girl with fiery red hair and a smile that lit up the world just the same who was just unique and would never hurt anyone..." Tears are close to forming in her eyes. She looks down. "They would beat her and shame her and focus on breaking her and spoiling what made her so special. She tried and she tried to step away yet they kept dragging her back and when she finally was going to step in line...they took something from her. That girl...was me."

    The fans are unsure what to think now as Ivy continues to hold back tears.
    "And as much as you think that I could be blowing hot air. This is all true. I know darkness, I've felt what terror and evil is! No matter how hard I try, I can never undo what was done to me. That is why I look at the past. It's shaped me and everyone else, causing mental and physical scars and yes..." She rips one of her arm sleeves off, and it effortlessly falls on the floor. Raising her arm up, she reveals marking on it, scars. Fans gasp and are left speechless. "I have scars..."

    Somehow, the fans reaction goes unnoticed by Ivy as she seems almost obsessed with the entrance-way where Spawn will make his way out momentarily. "There, Spawn. Are you happy now? Now you see why I'm rejected by the Lord. I'm unable to be "inspired" to be "better" because those scriptures I see as weapons and they deepen the scars in my mind and on my wrist. That is why you turning to the very person that killed my old self sickened me. Out of your lies, your betrayals, that is the one that must be punished! I don't need forgiveness because I never did anything wrong. But now, anger, vengeance, rejection, pain and a lust for fear has built an empress, ready to build her kingdom..."

    She breaths quick, heavy, forceful breaths, and her hand is almost pulling at her hair as she kneels on the mat and stares at the entrance way. "You fight for the father...I fight for all those who faced punishment for no crime and those who were rejected by this world. So go ahead, I dare you to fucking step in this ring, because this time, God's kingdom finally crumbles...You can't stop it. You're not immune to fear...nobody is..."

    Dropping her microphone, creating a sickening thud, fans are shocked in silence and everyone waits for Spawn to finally make his way out to the ring.

    OOC (open)
    Whether it'd be Thursday or Friday, do your best response Tumbas and win or lose, I'm happy with this match. I think we both had great character development over this feud and I have ideas for our written match I wouldn't mind talking to creative about.

  6. at the 0:14 mark Spawn steps out from the curtain with a mic in his hand as he slowly walks to the ring he extends his hands to the fans hanging over the guard rail, but his focus is on Ivy. He climbs in the ring and wastes no time.

    [Spawn] Please don't cry here Ivy. The last thing that I would want to do here is upset you, but I cannot simply sit back and bear victim to the jokes and the insults any longer. My entire like I have been the outcast, the weirdo in the house at the end of the road. I have never had friends, I have never been invited to the parties and I have never been able to say I belong. How could someone like me, someone so broken and twisted fit among anyone normal. I am a man, yet people look at me as if I am unbreakable. The jokes and all the mocking... This is not a result of my days here in IWT. It has been my entire life. Can you relate to that? Can you recall being so mad at everyone that you just want to watch the entire world burn so that they pay for treating you like like a bug? Spawn never had a home, my hell was the only place I could call a home because it was the only place where I would fit in. Like the elephant man people would scream in fear or rise their fist is anger. All the mental abuse builds up and it can break the psyche of anyone.

    So maybe that is why I am so crazy for believing in a God I have never seen. Maybe I am nothing more but a delusional psycho who is trying to make an excuse for why I shouldn't pillage every field on this Earth. Maybe I am trying to find a reason why I shouldn't burn every man, woman and child to a pile of ash. Maybe I am sick of being this fiend! Maybe I want to change and become something better. Ivy Hale I am sick and tired of being the cause of harm and for just once in this life I would like to make someone smile! Yesterday I trained in the gym and I couldn't wait to get out here. I couldn't wait to show the world that I had changed. I thought maybe then people could smile and people could begin to see that I never want to cause harm again. But before I came out here I realized that I didn't need too. There were people out there willing to believe in me and give me a chance. I do not feel alone anymore. I feel as if people would really want me to win this match tonight because they can see the change in me. Clearly Miss Hale you struggle to wrap you head around this.

    Ever since I begun following in the light of Christ people have forgiven my sins and allowed me to move on. I am no longer a black sheep. I have a home now. And it's IWT.

    Ivy I can preach scriptures all day but it can't prove God. If we could touch God, I certainly would not be the first to do so. The Holy Bible could be manipulating me, I'm not sure it isn't and that is because I am just a man. But is it wrong for me to seek redemption this bad? Can you blame me for wanting to move on with my life so that I can rest in peace? Can you really hate me for wanting to put and end to all my sins?

    Sure I did want the fall of man. I did lay waste to armies and I relished in the death of all beings. I used to build my empire with my hatred and my disgust. It was a downward spiral for me which caused me to sink deeper and deeper into my soul and before I could look out the window I was already trapped in the pits of the darkness. I was the prisoner to evil. I am the one who had to feel the burning! I am the one who bears the scars! So Miss Hale I don't get why you can't relate to me. I don't get why you hate seeing me lock him away. Of all people in IWT I expect you to understand how horrible my existence is...

    I fight for my redemption. I fight with the Father and I fight with all these people willing to give me a second chance. I fight for them so that they, or anyone else in the locker room, never has to feel my anger anymore. You say you fight for the rejects but you are looking into the face of one. I am the reject Ivy. I certainly am not immune to fear. Fear is what lets me know I am on the right path. The fear tells me what will happen if I stop fighting. I fear for what I could do if I stopped trying to be righteous. We both have the scars. We both share the memories of being shoved out the door and not given a chance. So why are you so upset to see me become a better man? Why do you hate me for that? I am so tired of being the butt of the joke. I am tired of people laughing and dragging me down like I don't have feelings. When they throw their stones at me, I bleed. When they kick me down I fall. But no matter what they do to me, I will always stand up. A lot of people will think I am a fool. And a lot will get angry at me. But that fall is just apart of my day. So I stand up and I continue with my business.

    You don't need to listen to the people who shunned you. You don't need to live a life full of fear and anger. You can live a life that makes you truly happy. you can be yourself because there will always be people who jeer you. People will always bring you down, but it's up to you to stand back up and show them wrong Ivy! I have learnt for my mistakes and I am going to continue learning for however long I live. I will fall and more people will point and laugh. I will simply stand back up. One day maybe they will get so sick of laughing that they give up. Because one day they will see I am not a quitter. They will see that their jokes bring me no harm. They will see that their hatred does not add any scars to my body. They will come to learn that it was their hatred that fueled me to show them that I was better than what they thought. The negativity is what makes me want to do better. The evil in this world shall not burn my flesh, it will fill my belly as I do better. Don't be hurt by words Ivy, you are better than that. Don't listen to the people who show you out. Don't listen to what I say and feel a sting in your soul. Hear what I have to say and do something about it.

    Whether that be you kick me down and make me fall or whether you simply carry on hating me for my dream. Just know that I believe in you. That is why I wanted to face you in my return. I wanted you Miss Hale. I hope you can excuse me for coming out a little late tonight but I was actually preparing something for you. I don't expect you to want to read it, or for you to even change. I just want you to see that I have changed. If I can, anyone can. You are not an outcast or a reject to me. You are much better than that.

    With that Spawn rolls out of the ring and lifts the apron as he pulls out a thick leather bound Bible from under the ring and slides it towards Ivy as Spawn walks out with a true smile on his face.

    Man, you guys killed it. Extremely close for sure. Ivy's first promo was strong and his second built on that, with a strong climax to end his second promo. Once again, you're showing me that you deserve a place higher up, you're great. However, I can't take anything away from Spawn. I've shat on you for a long time how you were literally CM Punk and how you were literally Kane, and even though you kinda were at those points, this face turn has helped you so much. You have a strong and original character that comes off believable and is a ''God'' gimmick that isn't over-the-top in any way which I love. Your ''Inside The Mind'' promo was already tasty stuff but this was definitely the best match from you, and the only reason I didn't vote for you in the end is because you didn't have that strong ending that R had, but if you did, I would've. Good shit most definitely, MotN so far like Botchie said.

  13. RT this is a tough one. I feel like NLR has a better overall character and idea of where he wants to go with his promos, but Tumbas has been actually quite good as a face ngl. He was quite endearing here and made me want to see him win. I feel like I'm gonna have to read through these a few more times and properly think about who should pick up the W this quarter. Good job brothers

  18. Here's your winner...IVY HALE!
  19. When i got to reading this it was a great match. I skimmed over the praying and the bible quotes. Im sure what contributed to the edge ivy had over spawn was spawn was building character during this match, which worked at times and didn't in others.

    Imo that sort of stuff should be done in storyline. When you trim that out of Tumbas' promo i think he beats Hail. Both people threw hands and next to Arno Frye I think Ivy is becoming one of my favorites.
