  2. Blue and pink smoke engulfs the stage as the never before heard theme reverberates throughout the arena. Jack's titantron kicks on to a positive reaction, and an array of strobe lights pierce the mixed fog. Forté enters through the entrance curtain as the song picks up, for what my be his last night as the Intercontinental Champion and Hall of Famer. He's met with a gracious reception. Jack slaps the hands of the fans as he makes his way ringside, slides underneath the ropes, and waits for things to simmer down.

    Forté pulls a microphone from the back of his tights, and eargerly paces with a smile before addressing the crowd.

    Six months, this has been six months in the making. And the time has finally come, SummerSlam is here!

    (Crowd pops)

    And I tell ya, I just couldn't wait another second. Bishop, a man who has been on my ass since he's got here, has taken every chance to remind all of you that he is not to be trifled with! But this is the first time where it won't be when my back is turned. This time won't be where I'm almost unconscious. This is the first time, that we stand face to face. In front of you all, in my ring.

    That should be the end of it, just two guys ready to tear each other apart for the biggest prize in the IWT! Cased closed. But it isn't, not even close. Because just last week Bishop decided to up the anty, he put his entire career on the line. In his very first title match! When Alias did it, it made sense. It was commendable even. But this, this is just outright stupid.

    (Crowd gives off a slight negative reaction)

    No no no, just hear me out. Bishop is what, five matches deep into this business? He's just getting started. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. To win what may just be the most prestigious title in the HISTORY of the IWT, on one of its biggest stages! And if he loses? He gets sent to the back of the line? Forced to face 'I got beat by Ryan Davis' again? Big whoop, a few more wins and he would be right back in the title picture. Granted, it would probably be for the IWT Title, but it's still something. But now if he loses, it's over for him. For good! Unless a handicapped Kid restarts FSW, or that other irrelevant fed NG-- something got another break. I just don't get it, what? Are you trying to gain some sympathy with the crowd? Or are you just that cocky, thinking you'll beat my ol' pasty bitch-ass?

    Whatever the reason, I decided to match you. Even though I already put up my title, my un-pinned streak, and the chance to end me breaking a record reign. That should be enough to fight for, yet I STILL put up my Hall of Fame ring! But I actually have a good reason. To most, a Hall of Fame ring is the thing to strive towards, it shows that you have a legacy worth remembering. But to me, it's a symbol. To those that have one and still compete, that each match you have, you need to uphold the legacy of the IWT as a whole and do it justice. So, if you beat me Bishop then I'd have no problem giving it to you, because I know you'd be able to uphold the legacy that is the IWT!

    Jack runs his free hand through his hair before continuing.

    There's. Just. One. Thing. You can come out here, talk about how I'm the worst thing going, talk about how much you hate me, talk about how you'll walk out champion and a Hall of Famer, even if the Bullad Club came out here. And as tough as you are, and as much as some of the stuff you'll say may ring true... there's just a tiny problem. You know, I know, and everyone listening knows, that only one of us can back up what they say.

    Forté advances to the set of ropes parallel to the entrance, and leans on them.

    And buddy, you're looking at him. So when I say, come hell or high water-- I will do whatever it takes to walk away from here with my title, my ring, and my livelihood! When I say, I am going to shut you down harder than Danny or James ever could, and send you home packing. When I say, you're going to wish you never laid a finger on me the night you showed up here.

    Just know, I mean it.

    Jack backs up and awaits the arrival of Bishop.

    *The lights in the arena all begins to flash blue and white as once again a different theme plays over the arena speakers. The crowd gives off a mixed reaction as they realize it is still Bishop that is about to come out. The lights sync up with the song and it plays for about 40 seconds when Bishop slowly walks out onto the stage wearing his usual ring gear but he's wearing a shiny jacket that looks like it's covered in gold. He stands at the top of the stage and stares down Forté for a moment as the song blasts over the crowds mixed reaction. He slowly walks down the ramp and never takes his eyes off Forté until he rolls in the ring. He pulls a mic out of his jacket pocket and looks back at Forté and begins laughing for a moment as his music fades and the crowd is chanting for the both of them.*

    "It is about...damn....time. I ain't gonna lie I got goosebumps walkin down that ramp just now because it finally hit me that this is probably the last time we see the man these people know and love as Jack Forté. It don't matter if you win or lose, I ain't gonna let you walk away tonight without some sort of mark that reminds you of Bishop for the rest of your weak ass life. If I beat you, you obviously always gonna have to remember me, I mean come on. Imma be the dude that stole your legacy and everything else you brought wit it, includin that shiny Intercontinental title. Hope you shined that shit up real nice for me..."

    *He takes his eyes off Forté for a moment as the crowd begins to start chanting for the both of them. He looks at all of them for a moment then immediately looks back at Forté and begins pacing.*

    "I been criticized for about a week now tho. Everywhere I go errybody got the same damn shit to say..."Ay Bishop, how you jus gonna put your career on the line like dat? You jus getting started, man! What you doin?" And you be sayin the same ol shit. So it's a bit early in my career here, but you really think I give a FUCK?"

    *He stops pacing and points at Jack.*

    "I HATE your stupid ass, Jack Forté. If I can't beat you there ain't no reason for me to be in this business, I got no problem walkin away. I came to this company to beat YOU....I don't give a damn about that gold, I got plenty of that shit already, I've jus been here to expose you as the fluke you are. You ain't no hall of famer, please, don't give me dat. You look at yo name next to all the other iWT Hall of Famers and you really aint SHIT. You know the big difference between you and them? Other than Aids Johnson and you, they knew when it was time to call it quits. They knew their time was up and they're now sittin at home wearin their ring, not puttin it on the line against a dude like me which is absolutely stupid by the way, and they all gonna laugh as they watch the IWT's most undeserving Hall of Famer lose his ring to the dude who in your eyes is nothin but "the guy whos only been here for 6 months". You ain't no champ either! Congratulations, you been holdin that shit for a long time, but there ain't nobody you've defended that belt against that could ever get the job done like i will. You nothin but an old soul that got no reason fightin dudes like me."

    *The crowd cheers at the exchange and Bishop backs up a bit and leans against the ropes.*

    "I feel like ever since I left my hometown and decided to try out this wrestling shit, everything has led me to this moment, which is why i'm perfectly okay with throwin it all on the line. You and everyone else likes to talk about how I'm nothin but hype cause I lost against those dudes Dragon and Jacobs..."

    *He chuckles and shakes his head.*

    "I only got one person to blame for not being totally undefeated right now and that's you, nigga. You have been nothin but a fuckin distraction cause even when I was facin those dudes the only thing I had on my mind was countin down the days till I could beat you down...I hate you just for bein the fool you are but the fact that just the simple thought of you caused me to start losin matches just made me wanna beat you down even more. And dats exactly what I'm gonna do."

    "You just "decided" to match me, right? Thats yo whole thang, really? You didn't decide SHIT, nigga, I forced your ass to be a man and fight me cause I knew you wouldn't have wanted none of this unless I was a thorn in your side. You coulda hid and dodged me all you wanted, I woulda been there the whole time, right behind you, waitin till you agreed to be standin here tonight in this very moment. We'd be standin here tonight whether you decided it or not, you couldn't of gotten out of this even if you tried. You got too much pride, I know it, and im tellin you it's gonna be yo downfall. There's a difference between a "fightin champion" and stupidity and you are 10 shades of stupid right now, fool. Imma do the impossible and break your lame un-pinned streak, imma take your title and make sure you never break the record that you don't deserve, and just like the cherry on the top, your hall of fame ring gonna look real nice on my finger..."

    *He lowers the mic and smirks at Forté as he holds up his ring finger.*

  4. Forté's smile fades as soon as Bishop starts to talk, transforming more into a scowl. The second Bishop finishes, Jack raises his mic and points at him.

    The only reason you are out here right now, is because I decided it! You're out here running your mouth, talking a big game, with a shot of a life time, because I decided it! And the chance I gave you, is being squandered right before my very eyes. I told you Bishop, I TOLD YOU, that if you came out here with that mindset that you would walk out here empty handed!

    Your purpose, your intent to end me, to end the 'legend that is Jack Forté' is ten times stupider than my dumb pride. You don't even give a damn about my title, the Intercontinental Championship. You're just looking for it to be a symbol, to serve as a proverbial mantle of my head! Meanwhile you have two people fighting for a shot for that same very title, one of which beat you! And yet, here you stand. Because I decided it.

    And you can say that had I not agreed to this match, that you would be right behind me, making my life a living hell till I had no choice but to say yes. But you don't know the volume of which those words mean. Because if I lost here, IF, neither of us would be able to move. But as we'd be getting stretchered out I'd stop them, request a mic, and tell your ass to get up and do it again. Like I said, I'm perfectly just in putting up my ring right alongside my title. But don't think for a second I wouldn't invoke my rematch clause the very second the bell rung.

    Not because I'm a fighting champion, and not because I'm letting pride cloud my better judgement. Because pride isn't my basic instinct, Bishop. Uh-uh. Survival is. I am a survivor. Every encounter I have had, I survived. And I will survive this one as well. By any means. I don't have the heart of a warrior, I am not some undying hero. I simply do what it takes to not only survive, but prosper.

    And I already know what you're going to say, I don't know shit about doing whatever it takes to survive. I didn't grow up in the mean streets of Detroit, I don't know the meaning of having to fight for my life. And yeah, this may not be Detroit, but I sure as hell fight for my life each and every month. I'm doing so now, and I will survive.

    So go ahead, be the next person in a long list to try and expose me. You're going to find one thing, one minor infracture. One that has been used against me before, and yet it still wasn't enough to lay me to rest. But if you feel like it's enough for you, go right ahead. Be my guest. Hell, maybe to you, me being in the Hall of Fame is something that is the epitome of it all. I accepted to being inducted, sure, but when I was given time I told everyone that I didn't deserve it. Not yet anyway. So with that added in, is that enough to expose me?

    Who knows, but know this. I got inducted within ten months because of the career I had already piled up, and you've been here six months now. Closing in on ten months soon, for you. And everything you could do, I DID do! Win a title? Check. Not get pinned? Check. Main Event a PPV? Check. Get inducted into the Hall of Fame? Check. So if I were you, I guess I would hate me too.

    But as much as you hate me, your mind isn't in the right place. And with that, you're body isn't either. Sure, you have a career on the line. Not to mention all of the other things. Yet you're looking at me as the end goal, and I just don't see you the same way. A thorn in my side? Perhaps. But I see my end goal, and it's on my waist. I just intend to keep it there.

    Jack paces back and forth, and then walks right up to Bishop.

    Look at me, Bishop. I'm in your head, yeah? I'm the reason you lost to Danny Jacobs and James Dragon? Well, I'm right here now. Look at me! Because if I'm the man to blame for both of your losses, then I'm the man to blame for ending your career.

    Forté lowers his mic and mouthes what may be his final words as Intercontinental Champion.

    Blame Me.

  5. *As soon as Bishop sees Forté lower his mic, he raises his immediately.*

    "The only damn person I'm gonna be able to blame for ANYTHING after tonight is myself, that ain't no lie. I started this war, and that's exactly what this has been, a war, and i'll be damned if I let you get any satisfaction from beating me. The object of war is not to die for what you believe in, but to make the other fool die for what HE believes in! You still really think you decided to have this match against me? I wouldn't be here unless you agreed upon it? Nigga, please! Miss me with that bullshit! How does everyone look at you as the prize competitor in this company when you spew shit like that?! You might have had to agree to have this match for it to officially happen, but everyone knows damn well that if I kept beatin you down week after week, you woulda had no choice but to face me. Your ego is really bigger than any of these people think cause you jus can't accept the fact that I belong here...then maybe you shouldn't have agreed to this after all, right?"

    "I ain't gonna say shit about Detroit tonight because tonight ain't about Detroit. Usually I come out here every night with the intention if holdin it down for my city, you know, representin, but I don't give a damn about that tonight. You're right about one thing, that title that you hold is going to be nothing more than a symbol for your defeat. You act like you won't be prancin round here preachin about how you ended my career if you win. I can hear your future speeches now. "I've ended careers, i've beaten everyone, I am unbeatable!" but I ain't gonna let those words slide out of your mouth."

    *He finally pauses and looks at Forté for a moment then looks away.*

    "I know you gonna be ready for a fight right away if I take your title and your legacy, and i'll give it to you. Fact of the matter is, that even when I beat you, imma still have your legacy. I'll fight you with your hall of fame ring on my finger and you can take the title back all you want, but you ain't gonna be breakin a record no more. You still gonna be a broken down poor excuse of a champion. You told everyone you didn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, well i'm gonna PROVE it."

    "But you know, I been thinkin bout what would happen if I really had to retire here tonight...i can't just ignore the fact that it's a possibility. I got no damn regrets that's for sure. I mean shit, my record ain't perfect, but like I said, I came here for one reason and that was to make sure your ass got taken down a step. Everyone knows you don't belong here anymore, everyone would like to never see your face again, and not because you're "too good" for us, but because your time is up. I ain't leavin here tonight until I know for sure that you have been broken down, and if by some miracle you manage to slip by me, you gon be half the man you were before. Whoever you face next, whether that be James Dragon or whoever the fuck it may be, you're time is up, nigga. It might as well be Jack Forté vs Father Time tonight."

    *He looks throughout the arena potentially for the last time as they continue to be split for the both of them. He smirks and looks at Forté again.*

    "I've always been somebody that people feared, you know? I don't know if that's cause the way I look or the shit I do to people but no one ever wanted to step toe to toe wit me. I always thought it was like a people almost avoid me anywhere I go like they think they in danger jus by bein around me. These days...that's probably true. But you're standin here tonight and lookin me dead in the eyes and tellin me you gonna be the man to end my career, send me away for good..."

    *He chuckles*

    "Do it den! Everyone knows I'm the biggest challenge you got, prove to the world that you're more than jus a crazy fool! You lose tonight and you lose EVERYTHING, and i'm sure you know that, but are you prepared for what happens when you FAIL? I'm prepared for life after death here, I know what the fuck my future holds, but do you? I know what happens to you, me, and everyone else here when they move on. It's one giant loop. You never truly leave this place cause you leave behind a legacy. I beat you right now and you got no fuckin legacy to leave behind, I beat you and I steal everything you've ever worked for..."

    "I'm lookin right at you and I see Jack Forté. After tonight, i'll be lookin at a man that's gotta start fresh and build a whole new legacy, Jack Forté will be no more. This is a retirement match for you too, fool. Remember that. Blame me for that."

  7. Can I vote and not have it count? Just wanna keep up with the results.
  8. This was mad. Loved how you rectified the stipulation and had a sharp point to it. That bit really popped me and helped put you back up with Forte imo.

    Very close match but that short snippet was the main reason for my vote. DK came back after Shadows crazy 2nd promo and managed to hold on his own and still pack more relevant character development in. One of the best contenders Jack Forte has had.

    Great stuff lads. Both of you killed it on the second promos but I gotta give it to Shadow.

    This part pretty much cemented the Forte win with me and I didn't think DK could come back from the second promo in general, the fact is that he almost proved me wrong.

  12. DK won the first set of promos.

    His promos were well written and were a good heel promo, but I think that the use of italics and bolding is more desirable than capitalizing whole words for emphasis. That's just my opinion on the whole look of your promo.

    Shadow had some weirdly worded promos, but other than that it was a good promo, but I don't think it was good enough. It was kind of sub-par comparing it to DK, as it had little fuel, to me. Kind of hard to describe, but I just wasn't feeling his first set.

    However, Shadow won the second set of promos.

    His promos were really powerful and had a lot of emotion behind them, I can envision him actually screaming those words into the PA system. I really loved those first few paragraphs in his second promo.

    DK had equally as powerful 2nd promo, but I don't really think he has had enough history in IWT to really have so much pent up emotion, however his storyline backstory can be equally powerful, but he is a heel so I don't think it would be a good idea. I'm rambling but in short, DK and Shadow were virtually on-par for a glorious match.

    I would need to read these promos a good few times to really decide on who would get my vote, but as of now I think it's just a great blowoff to one of the best feuds in recent IWT history. Without the burden of voting, I can just enjoy this masterpiece for what it is.

    Great job, Shadow and DK.
