    The feed cuts to the Allstate arena with a packed crowd ready for IWT Summerslam for a match that has quickly became a personal affair as Reagan Cole faces the sinister Ivy Hale in Cole’s last match and Hale’s debut. The fans seem ready for it, but something doesn’t seem right. The ring is covered in a black carpet and surrounding the ring are various pictures of Reagan Cole throughout his time in IWT. Such as a picture of Cole getting Chokeslamed by the monstrous Spawn, him struggling to climb a steel cage where Michael is in wait to stop him, next to that is Reagan Cole laying, beaten over a victorious Scott Fargo and at last, a picture of him after his match last month with Intercontinental Champion, Jack Forté. Bouquets of black flowers surround each picture and at each ring post, a lit candle is mounted. There is almost a feeling of a funeral going on. Something doesn’t seem right and at long last, someone comes out.

    The unfamiliar theme song of Ivy Hale plays for the first time in IWT, signaling her arrival as the lights of the arena turn a blood red. Ivy Hale soon makes her way out and she seems unusually happy. With an unsettling grin on her face, she walks down to the ring. She doesn’t look at the fans, who are either boo her, or remain silent, uncertain of what will come, and she tilts her head as she stares at the ring. She makes her way on the apron to hang upside down from the ropes before entering the ring and sitting, legs crossed in the middle of the ring. She picks up a microphone and speaks into it as the volume of her theme is lowered, playing in the background as she delivers her mad message.

    “At long last, Summerslam has come and as the horizon will set on our match…my dark world will soon envelop all of IWT and it all starts with the departing Reagan Cole…”

    Stating the name of her opponent brings cheers and this only causes her to smirk.

    “Since this match was announced, I’ve made it my goal to make your last few weeks in the company your worst nightmare possible and I’ve done just what I set out to do. All in hopes of finally breaking through to you. Sure I hit a snag or two along the way, but I have ruined your little goodbye tour. After your first match with Cousin Edward, I made sure you couldn’t continue and I struck your ankle with a wrench. That was not just for enjoyment but that was so you could only get a small sample of what a girl like me is capable of. Then, you were forced to rely on that little fly, British Kid to take your place in the match against The Blackfire, which believe me, was enough of a nightmare as it was, hahaha. But, as I stood against you in Essex, you impressed me almost. Perhaps it was the local crowd, or the love of your fiancée, Sarah, but just as I thought I was going to crack through to you, there was signs of fight.”

    She rolls her eyes and looks at each of the picture frames in the ring.

    “If you plan on trying go down as a hero, then so be it. That is why I’ve prepared all this, to allow us to reflect together on your career. Maybe, just maybe, all this can finally help you realize what you have been so wrong about your entire life. But if this fails, then you force my hand and I will trap you into a nightmare with no escape in sight….”

    Getting up, she paces around the ring and continues to speak.

    “I am aware of your pursuits in other places, and it is mostly the same themes looping over and over and over, but I am only going to focus on a select few. For those are all I need. Let’s go back to your battles with Spawn and Michael just earlier this year because that was when you were first starting to crack. Your own boss rejected who you were and forced you to battle with his fake monster. He put you through the loops and just as it seemed like you were free from the cycle of failure and fear, Michael pushed you back in. How metaphorical, you tried to escape a cage with your demons inside but got trapped again. Chuckles. After you seemingly found your way on the road to the top, yet I could tell you were just a few losses away from snapping like a twig. You fought your way to be Universal Champion, but you fell in the semi-finals to the Bullad Club’s Scott Fargo. So close to the title, yet so far. You had a chance to be part of history. To be the first to accomplish a dream, and to be the one person all these sacks of meat look towards. That, doesnt happen to people like you. But sure enough, you had one more chance. You had a chance to be Intercontinental Champion and people saw you had fire within you. Not because you were close to a dream, but because you feared falling one…more…time…and no matter how hot your fire burned, it wasn’t enough. That tipped you over the edge and here we are now, in your last match and your last goodbye to IWT. So..”

    She stops her pacing and stands in the middle of the ring. The red lighting shines off her hair and only adds to the unearthly vibe. Most of the fans are silent and are stuck in a gaze towards Hale.

    “That makes you easy picking for someone as perverse as me. I have embraced fear. I once lived in constant fear and it rotted inside of me. I tried to run and I tried to look for other things to brighten myself up. That only prolonged the punishment. I now realize what role it plays in life. But Reagan, you never truly realized this. Even you yourself once described how where you lived you were in constant danger. Yet, you chose to ignore that fact and got blinded by an Olympian who taught you the values of hard work and dedication to accomplish your dreams and these people only masked the truth to you. That is why it was so easy to torment you over and over the past number of weeks. Life has made me cold, numb to the pain of others and I take pride hurting you physically just as much as I can destroy you mentally. That is why after this match, I will force you to embrace the true nightmare of this world, or destroy the very Reagan Cole we all know. The choice is yours.”

    She goes down to her needs and spreads her arms wide, yelling into the microphone.

    “So join me in this moment of silence for the death of the Reagan Cole we all know…and to celebrate the birth of a nightmare fueled IWT…hahahaha….”

    She bows her head as the lights of the arena go out, along with the music. The only light is coming from the few candles lit on the corner posts and Ivy Hale sits there, in silence. This doesn’t last long though…

    After Ivy finishes speaking, one spotlight appears on the stage and Reagan is already seen in the top of the ramp, surprisingly. And the thing that is also surprising is that nearly all of the crowd are cheering for the man who is about to leave. Reagan is wearing a Joseph Diamond t-shirt and black and blue pants and with no theme song, he stares at Hale.

    Reagan: Ladies and Gentleman, my name is Reagan Cole and this is my last match as a active IWT superstar. Now I had no theme song tonight as you can obviously notice and that's because I wanted them not to. Because maybe, it has something to do with mind games. Maybe, it has something to do with the quote "Silence kills" Who knows? But one thing I do know is that you have arranged a ring full of pictures of my losses. Okay. That's a terrible game-plan, if I must say so, myself because that just adds to the amount of anger that I have in my very system right now. And trust me, that anger is nearly at a all time high right now.

    Cole slowly starts to walk down the ramp, eyes locked on Ivy Hale as the spotlight follows him

    Reagan: But let's go over what you have so, my first Spawn defeat. I underestimated him. Second loss to Spawn in a cage. Michael screwed me over. No better way to put it. My loss to Fargo. He was the better man. My loss to Forte. I gave up like I have said before. None of those losses mean anything to me. They will not define who I am. They make me stronger. Because I look over the matches afterwards and I realise where I fucked up and I don't make the same mistake, that's where you are at so many disadvantages Ivy. Compared to me. I keep evolving.

    Now you have decided to make my life hell over the last few weeks. You say you do it just so you can get inside my head. Just so you could break me down. Just so I can finally realise what "I have been wrong about my entire life." I can already see what I have been wrong about my entire life. The fact that I have to come out every week and give the fans all of the entertainment that they want then as soon as I get to the back, I am delivered with zero respect because Michael wants to push the same people every single event. Yea, Michael might disagree to this and point out that we are going on after the Alias Antonio vs Dat Kid match but to the bigger ups, we are the toilet break match. And how long is it going to be before we get another Aids vs Dat Kid match? A month? Maybe two? I can clearly see what I have been wrong about. So technically, you achieved your own mission without doing anything. But the part where you try and get into my head?

    Reagan is at the bottom of the ramp with his hands on the apron, looking straight at Ivy when he slowly shakes his head

    Reagan: You failed. Do you want to know why? I have said my backstory before but I will say it again if you want me to. It was a dark night and my mother was just cleaning dishes until my dad broke in through the back door. I was playing video games in my room upstairs. I hear a scream and I run downstairs to see my own mother, bleeding from her mouth and unconscious on the ground. I know my father was drunk at the time after his brother, MY UNCLE passed away in a car accident but it doesn't make any difference to me! And I wish that was the only time that happened to me. But it wasn't. I left my childhood house because of him. I threw away all of my child innocence that day. I threw away all of the fear inside me. So I have my head locked shut so only people I love can get inside. So what are you going to do now, Hale? I have felt the worst mental pain, known to man. You can't do anything worse. I can guarantee that.

    But what I can do instead is unleash weeks, maybe even months of rage, anger, and frustration on you just for trying to bring me down to that level. I will beat your ass from one side of the ring to the other. And when I am done, I am going to do it again. I am going to continue to do it until you are blue in the fucking face. That may sound sadistic and it may even cross the line into your kind of level, but tonight, anything and everything goes in my book. Some superstars of the past have this rise and fall situation. We have seen it with some of the best. Aids Johnson, FTJ, Joey Bryant and Alias Antonio. However, with you, after tonight is over and I have beaten you to a bloody pulp, all anyone will remember about you is the fall of "The Empress of Fear" because I'm not going to give you the chance to rise to begin with.

    Reagan slowly turns around and stares at the pictures around him and smirks as he awaits the response

    This sign of strength from Reagan Cole does not seem to sit well with Ivy Hale, who now seems almost furious as the always unstable girl starts to yell into the microphone.


    Letting out a vicious scream, Ivy Hale does not seem to be playing around any longer. Her usual soft voice is replaced by a piercing screech as she speaks.

    "You think you know rage? You think you know pain, Reagan Cole? I don't evolve? Everything, absolutely everything you just said shows how simple minded and brainwashed you are by society! This message isn't sending through, so I have to dig deeper and deeper into the mind of Reagan Cole and this...THIS...will be the moment you will crumble. It all starts with your proclamation of how you lost each of those matches. Those are just excuses to hide what really happened."

    She takes a deep breath, trying to calm herself, to very little success. She walks towards the first picture of Spawn she placed and continues.

    "You said you under-estimated someone who had the aura of a monster? A man who towers over yourself who seemingly was impervious to the pain you tried to deliver? Don't make me laugh, Reagan Cole. If someone in your situation, the symbol of the proverbial "underdog" would under-estimate someone like Spawn, then that shows the very hubris that has spelled the end of many people throughout history and these fictional stories you tell yourself when you go to bed. If this fact was true, then that shows how pathetic of a human being you are....And as for the second encounter..." Turning to the picture from the cage match. "Michael's interference just shows how unwanted you are. It shows how fruitless your efforts are to earn respect. If you really were special, then they would have gave the spotlight to you. But your failures to see that once again shows your weakness. So don't turn this into an unwarranted attack on management again as a way to take your failures out or I will make you pay for it, understand?"

    She tries to fake kindness to Reagan Cole, but it is obvious and Reagan Cole just rolls his eyes and looks away from her. Hale doesn't seem phased by it and turns focus back on the pictures, this time with Fargo.

    "As for Fargo, of course you realized who was better. That was when I said you were just a loss or two away from cracking, was it not? That was after it seemed like you were doing so well, yet was only one miss-step away from crashing back down. That was when you first realized what you really were, and was when I first started to pay close attention. Your match with Forté only further drove that point home. Yet, here you are, out here lying to me, lying to your "fans" and lying to yourself. Of course those losses meant something, and those losses, didn't make you stronger. If you were stronger, you would stay and show that strength and with how strong you would be by that mindset, you would be shattering through the glass ceiling that has haunted you and whatever Michael, or Fargo, or whoever you have issues would say about it, that would be irrelevant."

    "Embracing hate, embracing fear, that makes people stronger. Much like myself. You are a person who knows pain. But that doesn't make you immune to fear. Just look at me...I don't go into detail, but I know exactly what hardship is. We both are two peas in a pod. But while you pushed that fear away, and left room for people you think love you, people who, like you, will be gone some day, this use a word you had..."

    Facing her opponent, Ivy Hale spreads her arms wide and allows everyone to look at who she is.

    "It allowed me to evolve. You don't seem to pay attention, and haven't payed attention to the words I spoke after the past few weeks so I will say them again. I was once a naive girl, who thought the world was pure. But then those who loved me, put the fear of God in me. Every second, forcing me to live a lie. And those who gave me strength, soon disappeared. The very crutch that kept me up was gone and that left me with mental, and physical scars. I could have fallen even further. Deeper into the trap, especially after...the incident.."

    Somehow, referring to "an indecent" leaves her feeling uncomfortable. Her head is down, red locks, flowing over her face, hiding how she feels. For half a second, Reagan Cole feels a tiny bit of sympathy, he goes a bit closer and asks "What was it?" without speaking into his microphone. This only causes her to lash out.

    "Don't...ask...about it! But, eventually I realized, why could I rely on what was temporary for a crutch, when I could stand upright with the one thing that remained constant. Instead of running away from what was real, I could be the soldier, the creator, the Empress of Fear...and thus, Ivy Hale was born. Now my purpose is clear, my goal is within sight. Reagan Cole, this isn't a story of you rising once more. There is no redemption for Reagan Cole, you have nothing to redeem. You aren't angry, or rage fueled and you won't find a way to beat me to a bloody pulp because you're delusional and weak. Especially with your mindset towards this match. To me, this isn't a "toilet break match" as this is the one match that changes the projection of IWT history and the final chapter for Reagan Cole."

    “I will force you into your own personal nightmare! This match, I will twist and bend you to my will. Your weaknesses will be exposed once and for all. Each time you try to fight back, the further you will fall into my trap. Because you may have faced monsters, demons, angels, snakes of human beings, teamed with sin, looked for what was right and wrong and even fought a self-proclaimed God… but you have never faced someone like Ivy Hale. . What you will experience will not be anything of this world and the effects of this match will last with you forever…”

    She chuckles a bit.

    “Every time you hear a voice, it will be mine…Every time you take a step, and your ankle throbs, you will remember who is responsible for it, whenever the wind blows, you’ll be reminded of my cold breath, and each time your fiancée…” She blows a kiss, mocking Reagan Cole. “Gives you a kiss, you won’t think of her, but it will remind you of me. But most of all, whenever you go to bed at night and wish to dream all the pain away, there will be no escape there either. That is the story of the never ending nightmare and I am the girl of your nightmares..."

  6. OOC: it's fine Reag.
  7. Reagan and Ivy have a short stare down where neither want to back down until Reagan chuckles, as he slowly lifts the microphone and enters the ring

    Reagan: Well, well, well. Look who is scared now? I'm your first opponent in IWT and you are already scared? I find that funny. Because here's the thing, Ivy. When we do battle in this ring. There are going to be no mind-games, no baseball bats and no wrenches. You aren't going to win by DQ because I have hardly used any weapons here even though I have wanted to, many times. Because I like to defeat my opponents with pure skill. Not things that give me a advantage. You can't win by count-out because I don't go down for a ten count. So you can't use weapons this time and you can't escape this time. Listen Ivy, you are not getting ot of here the same girl because you were the one threw the gauntlet down and wanted a shot at the most high flying, electrifying, trail-blazing and truly amazing wrestler in IWT so you better give me your A-game.

    You better try and take out this leg again because I never go down without a fight. I hope you realise that because if you don't. You are going to be the one that falls into the trap. You say that I don't know fear. You think that I don't know Rage. When all of this is wrong. I know all of these things very well but like I said I threw them away, I locked up them up and now only a few people can get them. But they all feel it, one way or another. Well I say "one way or another" but it's really just one way and I have been saying that way, every match, every battle, every event. Yea, I'm talking about my famous catchphrase

    Some of the crowd are quite shocked by this and Reagan sees this as he scans the arena with a serious face and Reagan climbs onto the apron

    Reagan: The Cole Way. Everybody just thought that it was just a cheesy catchphrase that looks good on t-shirts and billboards. Only if that was true. The Cole Way is filled with destruction and hatred because that's how I designed it. The Cole Way is where I put all of my fear. That's where I put of the rage inside me. I want people to go there and feel the pain that I felt nearly every day inside that house and some people have. Nero hasn't been seen in a while, has he? That's because I accidentally let The Cole Way consume him and now he's gone. But that's his fault because he once hit me with a car. Different fed so let's get back to the present. That's why The Cole Way will never end. Because the pain in my mind will keep going on and on. And there is nothing you will be able to do about it. You cannot break me. You cannot make me crumble. Because I have already been destroyed inside. Simple as that.

    So keep mentioning my losses. Here, I'll help you. Johnny B Cool. Aiden Ryan. Alias Antonio. Lord Lee. Joey Bryant. Dat Kid. Al Poppin. Eduardo. Nick. If we want to go to other feds, Let's do it. Jack Blaze. Dax. Adriana Moreno. Rad Hazard. Jackson Buckley. None of these people affect me. But when you injure me and put me out of action, that's when my anger starts to come back. No fear just rage. I had to watch great wrestlers do combat and to know that I couldn't be apart of it like I have been for the past 12 years makes me want to beat you more and that, joined with the electricity in this crowd tonight! *Cheap pop* Makes a bad combination and I can tell you right now face to face. I AM going to beat you until you are a bloody pulp. I AM going to destroy you for making me this angry for my final match in IWT. And I have never broke a promise out here but I will make one now. I promise that you will pay for your sins and you will go...The Cole Way!

    The entire crowd now start chanting "Reagan Cole" in respect for The British Apprentice as he stares down Ivy Hale with no expression on either of their faces.

  9. @Androode is this who you were trying to tag, Tsar?
  10. Double post. Damn you all!
  11. So I think there's potential here, both competitors needed to be more aggressive in going after each other. There was a lot of name dropping in this match and at times it felt like name dropping for the sake of name dropping. There was also a lot of history reciting in this match, which made the promos lengthier than they should have been. I feel like if one of you guys simply talked shit about the other person without the use of history i would have been more invested in this match.

    Reag, this is a big step up from what I've seen you do before and the Ivy Hale character will be amazing once we contain it a little bit. It's very hard to pull off evil/monster characters because you have to know where to draw the line so that it doesn't become cartoonish, which leads me to who i picked. I gave it to Reag because his promos were a bit more believable and if they decide to have a rematch and Ivy masters that gimmick I will be voting for Ivy next time unless Reag steps it up even more than he already has.
  12. Androode is an ass name.
