  3. Percy Donohue walks out to A Certain Shade Of Green by Incubus. He takes a moment to soak in the incredible atmosphere of Phillips Arena in Atlanta.

    Percy: Well, I took the liberty of going out first and here we are. Tonight, I seek to redeem myself after a rattling loss. To propel my career to something a lot greater than I alone could ever be. See, to be honest, I'm not redeeming anything. Some idiot told me to say that backstage. I'm not seeking retribution, I'm not looking to redesign, rebuild or reclaim. In fact, this is a rebirth. The rebirth of myself. From the ashes of El Majestico, the Phoenix that is The Majestic One: Percy Donohue, will rise.

    Percy waits for James to make his entrance.

    James Dragon arrives on top of the entrance ramp as the vocals kick in. Bouncing his hips to the beat and surveying the boo'ing crowd with an arrogant smirk. He saunters down to the ring and ignores the various crowd members flipping him off and hurling abuse as he makes his way up the steps. James enters and stands opposite of Percy, taking a needlessly long time to remove his sparkly green jacket to deliberately antagonize Percy. Dragon is handed a microphone through the ropes and he walks back towards the corner to address Percy.

    "Perceval. Percy. Whatever you're going by these days. I wanna preface all that I'm about to say, by telling you that I admire that you dared to show your face tonight. As well as the fact that, nothing that is about to happen is inherently your fault. Sometimes, there are things at play that are just bigger in the grand scheme of things. Tonight at Retribution, these people and our illustrious leader Michael, will witness that first hand."

    "However, that doesn't apply to you, I'm afraid. See, your role in history tonight is to be a statistic. A casualty of war if you like."

    "Because believe me. Tonight; there is no perceivable outcome of you leaving here with your first win."

    "Allow me to elaborate."

    James grabs both ropes and hoists himself up, laying lazily on the top turnbuckle and stretching before continuing.

    "You're a different beast from the general 'talent' that haunts the halls of this company. I'll give you that much. But you're not without your very apparent flaws. Namely, your indecisiveness. See, you came in here like every other cookie cutter competitor, disrespecting these idiots and puffing out your chest with unwarranted self confidence. But then, you one eightied. You wanted these people's adulation all of a sudden. You realized after losing to Fargo, that you couldn't hack it on your own. So you tried to rally the support of the parasites in the audience."

    "Generally, an indecisive person retains that trait through all walks of life. Here's your problem. In a wrestling ring, if you don't know what you wanna do, when you wanna do it. You don't stand a very good chance of winning as the norm. Against me? A man who can exploit even the slightest weakness. A man who can counter every known hold on planet earth. It's tantamount to suicide."

    "The truth is, Perceval. That when you get right down to it. You're a liar. Perhaps no one here can see it yet. But you are the epitome of a deluded charlatan."

    "You lied to yourself when you tried to present yourself with false bravado."

    "You lied to yourself when you decided these people could help you get the success that you seek."

    "And you're lying to yourself now by believing you stand any chance at redeeming yourself."

    James smirks. He yawns slightly.

    "Do yourself a favour. Follow the lead of The Ringmaster. Know when you're out of your depth. Go back to whatever hole you crawled out of. And live to fight another day. Me? I've got a tournament to win. A boss to spite. And history to make."

  5. Percy looks at James for a minute.

    Percy: You're right. I am indecisive. I had a hard choice when I would either continue with my wrestling training and career, or take up a course in catering. Obviously, I took the correct career path. Which I would be more than happy to show you once the ring bells.
    And I'm indecisive of what way to win here. There's pinfall, submission, tap out, count out, DQ, referee stoppage, pass out. You get the idea.

    Percy climbs to the top turnbuckle and sits down.

    Percy: You're also wrong, however. I didn't try to rally the support of the "parasites" of the audience. I simply apologised. Honestly, I'll be the first to admit that spitting in the face of the people who pay our bills is ludicrous.

    Percy points out to the crowd.

    Percy: These wonderful people are the reason why we are able to do this as a full time job. These people are the reason we can afford big houses. These people... Are the reason I love wrestling. And we are obligated to give them a damn good fight.

    The crowd start chanting "FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT"

    Percy: Now usually, I'm not one to be cocky. To be going out saying "Imma beat da fuck outta dis guy". And I'm not. But what I will say is no matter how hard you try. There's a certainty of I will come out with something. And that will be knowledge. Knowledge will allow me to adapt, to figure out what works and what doesn't work. It's a guarantee that I will come out this match a better wrestler.
    Perhaps I can't redeem myself, but I'll have a good fuckin go at beating the piss out of you. Now that, is a guarantee, Mr Dragon.

    James raises an eyebrow. Moving around on top of the turnbuckle until he now sits opposite to Percy.

    "How, mighty heroic of you."

    "First off, whilst I didn't really expect a person of your mental capacity to take my words all that seriously. I would've hoped that you may possibly see some sense. Instead you continue on with this false notion that everything I've said here is merely me trying to take you down a peg. You can make your little jokes but at the end of the day. The proof is right there."

    James points to the crowd.

    "You ARE, indecisive. All the methods you listed of how you'll win, are accessible only if the competitor in question has the physical and mental strength to pull them off, against me, you have neither. Hell, even when trying to correct me by saying that all you've done is apologized to these people you immediately try play up to them. As if those that buy a ticket and act entitled are worthy of praise."

    "I want you to look into the audience for one single, solitary second. I want you to look deep into their eyes. See their souls. Then I want you to think of all the wrestling tragedies. The countless careers cut short. Even the lives that have been lost. They. Will forget. About you. Not a single one of these people would spit on you if you were on fire. Because to all of them, we're no different from any run of the mill TV show. Expendable people who don't impact their lives in any major way."

    "But no. You continue believing that everything we do is worth it for their approval."

    James' serious demeanor relaxes and he smirks once again, leaning back slightly and resting one leg over the other.

    "What little knowledge you possess. Feel free to use. I look forward to being shown how to lose unceremoniously on Pay-Per-View, by an expert. The fact is, you were put against me; not knowing the true gravity of the situation. If you think you've been given a chance at redemption, you're sorely mistaken."

    "Have your good go however. Believe me, your naive idealism is kind of endearing. I'll be rooting for you, from the second our match begins, all the way until you're lying in a pool of your own blood. Savor these last few seconds. Your brush with greatness is over."

    James dismissively drops his mic to the side. Dropping down and leaning casually in the corner with a wink at Percy.

  9. Drag had a consistent level of good in both his promos. While Rusty peaked in his second promo. It was quite close, but Drag had the better opener. That took the cake, for me.
  10. Rusty was good, however Dragon brought the fucking gun and started shooting. Good stuff
  11. Great match, James Dragon gets my vote though, he looked great
  12. Thanks lads. Gotta give props to Rusty though, mandem has improved leaps and bounds from when he first started in NGW. Mad respect
