  2. *The arena lights dim until there is nothing but darkness.*

    *Fire erupts from both sides of the ramp as the song intensifies, and the stage lights transition into gold. Those being the only sources of illumantion. Mark Knight walks into the golden lights, once again to little reception. Mark makes his way through the towers of fire, climbs up on the apron, and steps over the ropes.*

    This is pointless. Here I stand, all alone in a supposed tag team tournament qualifying match. Where are my opponents, and more importantly, where is my partner? Quite frankly, none of that even matters. I didn't even know who I was facing until I stepped into this arena today. The same thing goes for my partner. I made it clear when I last stepped in this ring, that no body is going to get in my way. I meant that. But hell, I doubt anybody was paying attention. Just like I doubt anyone will pay attention to this match.

    And to be honest, that's fine by me. When I first came into the IWT, I came in with a purpose. I had what I was supposed to focus on, and I did. But it didn't come into fruition, and so my game changed. The only thing that hasn't changed, is what anybody thinks of me and what I do. I really don't even need to be talking right now, I have nothing to prove to any of you. But yet, here I stand. Microphone in hand. Because I am here to give out a final warning.

    Colt, Ryan, Darius, and everyone else in this tournament. You can preach about how you were tortured, how you beat Nick and haven't done anything since, say you're here to better the IWT, whatever else. But I am in this for myself, nobody else. And each and everyone of you are a target to me.

    I am determined to make it to the finals, partner or not, and go on to win the tag titles. I might have been forced to enter this tournament, and team with a 2-bit thug, but I am going to do everything in my power to make it to the end of this.

    And by the end of this, Colt will be beckoning to be sent to hell, and Ryan will have to cry in Ms.Elizabeth's lap like he did after he got eliminated from the battle royal. Everyone else in the tournament, you have been warned. You may all be blind right now, but at the end each and everyone of you will see.

    The Titantron shows static till the music hits (at 00:11), titantron coming back to life showing clips of Colt. The camera changes to one that is coming from the behind the curtain and shows the back of a figure standing at the center of the stage, cracking his neck and looking around the arena and starts walking to the stage with the camera following him.

    He stands right outside the ring looking straight at Mark Knight as he's handed a mic before walking up the steps, his eyes staying on his opponent before he steps through the ropes, walkin up to Mark Knight, nodding and cracking his kneck.

    "This match, it's a match of unknowns. For starters, you don't know if your partner is gonna show, you don't know anything about me, I don't know anything about you, except for the fact that you love wordplay"

    He looks around the arena, pulling his hair back.

    "You know what Mark, I don't underestimate the unknown, I respect it, I eliminate it. But I never underestimate it. So when you stand there, giving your final warning on the first round of a tag tournament you yourself admit didn't want to join, you're telling me volumes about yourself. It tells me you're desperate to show you still have it, that your faultered purpose didn't decimate the sense of person you have, desperate to prove all your doubters wrong, how much you crave their approval."

    There is a mixed reaction from the crowd as he pauses for a second, shaking his head a bit with a smirk.

    "Now I'm not a wordsmith, I'm not here to play on words, I'm not here to play at all. I'm here to fight. It may seem like a brave decision standing on your own and fighting against a tag team in a handicap match, it may seem like you're on the top of the mountain giving your war cry that will echo through the roster. But I hate to be the bearer of bad news.... fuck that, I love being the bearer of bad news, it's one of life's purest joys. When Ryan and I are done with you, that battle cry that you screamed out while pounding your chest will be nothing more than a breathless whimper spewing out of your bloodied face. Me and Ryan, we aren't messing around. Yes we were put together randomly, but while you insult and berate your own tag partner, we worked together. This title, this tournament, means something to us. It's not something we are forced to do, no one forces us to do shit. We aren't anybody's lil bitch. We are grown as men and you better grow up. Fast."

  4. Jeff and Miss Elizabeth walk out onto the stage and wait a moment as Ryan makes his way out. Ryan stands in the middle of the two, extends his arms to his sides, soaking in the crowd's reaction and turns around facing the stage. Elizabeth and Jeff remove Ryan's robe and he turns back around. Jeff gets on his hands and knees as well as Elizabeth and Ryan uses then as steps. When Ryan steps off of one, they run in front and get back down. Ryan uses Elizabeth and Jeff to walk down the ramp as he looks into the crowd, talking to various fans as he walks by. Ryan makes it down to the ring and steps off Jeff to get onto the apron. He goes to a corner of the ring and Elizabeth and Jeff create a boarder in front of him. He removes his sunglasses as he's given a microphone and walks out of his human wall.

    Ryan: Ahh, Mark. Mark, Mark, Mark. I really had no idea you were such a comedian.

    Ryan smiles as he looks at Colt, then at Mark who is looking confused.

    Ryan: I mean, you'd have to be a comedian if you actually said what you said. You're full of contradictions.

    Ryan walks over to Colt, putting his arm on Colt's shoulder and leans on him as he continues to talk.

    Ryan: You come out here saying that nobody will pay attention to what you say, but then you go on and talk for 5 minutes. You repeatedly questioned why you were even here due to the fact nobody cares about you, but you're still here. Why don't you just leave then?

    Ryan extends his arm to the stage as he and Colt wait a few moments.

    Ryan: And even still, you don't leave. Then, you say you have nothing to prove to any of these people, but you even acknowledge you are standing here trying to explain yourself. What's the deal, do people care about what you have to say or not? Do you have to prove yourself or not? If you didn't even want to be here, why the fuck are you here?

    Colt looks surprised by the sudden use of swearing by Ryan as he stops leaning on Colt.

    Ryan: Seriously, why are you even here? I'm damn insulted to be in the ring with you right now. You have this amazing opportunity to advance your career by becoming a tag team champion and you don't even want to be apart of it? You spit on the chance you're given, you insult your own partner, YOUR OWN PARTNER, and you disrespect Colt and I, who actually see the honor of being in this tournament. If having a chance to become a champion isn't good enough for you, why the hell are you here?

    Ryan steps away from his posse and Colt and gets closer to Mark and doesn't stop talking while doing so.

    Ryan: All I've been trying to do since I came to IWT a few months ago is win gold, to win a championship and now I'm face-to-face with a guy who doesn't even appreciate the opportunity he's given? Yeah, I bring up how I beat Nick. I bring it up to show people what I'm capable of, but more importantly I bring it up to let people know that I'm trying to prove myself. That's something you don't have to do, right? You don't need to prove yourself, to show people what you are capable of. So just get out of here man, get lost and stop insulting Colt and myself, or we'll have to get you stretchered out of here.

  5. Enough. Yeah, I was shoved into this tournament with a partner I've never even seen before. I might not have agreed to this, but don't think for a damn second that I do not care about this opportunity. I could have easily not shown to this match, just like you didn't show to your second match with Nick, Ryan.

    You can spin my words around that I have no cares in the world, and that I have no claim to stake in this tournament. But what I say, I mean. I have made my intentions clear to make it to the finals of this tournament, and to win the tag team titles. Yet I insult you? Funny, really funny.

    Your mere presence insults me. The fact that you say that you're here for the gold. But this tournament has been announced since before SummerSlam. And while I have seen Colt, you were no where to be seen after your elimination. And I know damn well you probably wouldn't be seen until it was worth your while. I get it, you're a prizefighter. As much as I might not care about the way I was entered into this tournament, or anybody in it, I give a damn about the titles. You can claim you do, but when you only show up the day of you don't have much claim at all.

    As for you Colt, unlike your partner here, you've showed that you're in this for the long haul. And while I respect that, respect only gets you so far. You say this match is full of unknowns, and you are probably the biggest factor. Ryan and I, we've had matches. People have seen our faults and will be quick to capitalize on them, much like I have. We're exposed, you however, are not. All we know about you is that you were held up in a hospital, forced to take pills and talk about your feelings.

    But while you were talking about how upset you felt, I have been here. Getting knocked down time and time again, but I keep getting back up. And now I am here, ready to take an opportunity of a lifetime. I see what's infront of me. The problem is, neither of you do. And that will be your downfall.

    Colt seems agitated when Mark recollects his past, his agression being shown as he walks around the ring, cracking his knuckles and grinding his teeth.

    "I don't need your fucking respect!"

    He yells out as he walks straight up to Mark and stands toe to toe, the anger making him twitch, his glare intense as he looks into Mark's eyes. Taking a deep breath he dips his head and continues to speak.

    "You are right Mark. I am an unknown, and you're right about me being there for the long haul. IF I fall down, I will get up. But unlike you, I am not going to make a career out of it."

    He looks around, composed and focused as he continues to talk.

    "You say you saw the opportunity of a lifetime.... When just moments ago, you told us, everyone here, that you were forced to take part in this tournament."

    Colt shrugs as he looks at Ryan and continues to talk.

    "Tell me Ryan, when you get an opportunity of a lifetime, do you need to be forced to take it? I don't need an invitation, I don't need to be asked. When an opportunity rises, I take it. I make it mine! I don't wait around till i'm forcefed an opportunity."

    He turns his attention back to Mark.

    "Mark, you say we don't see what's in front of us. But you've got that ass backwards, it's not us who's having trouble seeing whats in front. It's you. And what you have in front of you, is a cohesive tag team that is ready to take this division by storm. The tag team that will climb this mountain and stay on top of it with that gold on our shoulders."

    Colt walks closer to Mark.

    "You didn't turn tail and run when you saw your partner didn't show, It's brave... Not smart, but brave. When you said that no one cares about this match, and no one will probably watch. That was true, they don't know me, this is the first round of the tournament and we're not big names that draw. So many reasons to not tune in. But after this match, we'll be trending worldwide, because the video of us decimating you, tearing you limb from limb it will go viral and pictures of your mangled face will be plastered all over the news. Maybe then, maybe then Mark, people will actually know who you are. They will know what you are. And you'll have us to thank."

    He stops for a second, a wicked grin breaking across his face as he brings the mic back up.

    "And for that, You're welcome."

    He drops the mic and pats Ryan on the back as if to tag him in before going to the corner and leaning against the turnbuckle.

    OOC (open)
    @Ryan Davis, you're up! @Blind good match man! Not an easy thing to do, handicap matches. On my phone so will format my reply once I get on my lappy

  7. Before Ryan Davis can continue again, "Hail Mary" by 2Pac begins to blare through the arena. The crowd quickly turn their attention to the ramp, as Darius LaVonte slowly walks out with a microphone in hand. LaVonte already looks out of breath as it seems he was in a rush to get to the arena. However, he seems to be wearing his everyday attire of a pair of tattered, faded Levi's and a pair of Jordan Oreo 4's. Everyone stood in the ring looks surprised to see him, considering it was though that this supposed tag team matchup would become a handicap match. Darius quickly slides into the ring, he gives a cheeky grin to the opposing team and gives a menacing stare to his partner, Mark Knight. He quickly wipes his forehead as he begins to explain himself.

    "Sorry for the delay. You know your boy had to get that fresh line-up."

    LaVonte quickly points to his hairline. He then proceeds to walk to each side of the ring to show off his haircut, having a smug look on his face while doing so. It's obvious to everyone that he oozes confidence and swagger, which his partner doesn't seem to appreciate.

    "Firstly, Mark, you come out here as if you don't need me to win this match and that you'll be able to take on these two idiots over here on your own. This is supposed to be a tag team tournament, so instead of being a little bitch about it, we need to work as a team if we want to win this tournament. Secondly, you're the one that needs me. I've been in more fights than probably everyone in this match put together. Did you forget that I was raised in the city of Compton? Out there you have to fight for life, you have to fight for a meal ticket. All the songs you hear about that place are true, it's a war between families and gangs that don't end until somebody dies. Luckily the strongest do survive and your boy was given an opportunity to leave the gang wars behind and settle my wars and battles between a four sided ring."

    "I was given the chance by IWT's General Manager who told me there would be a place for me in the IWT Tag Team Revival Tournament, where we would get the chance to relight the fire of teamwork in the IWT ring, that hadn't been seen in a very long time."

    The crowd quickly begin to cheer, as they are excited to see the start of what promises to be a great tournament.

    "Except, I do not give damn about you fake ass motherf*ckers cheering this right now. I'm not here to put on great matches, I'm not here to get along with my partner or to make friends. I am here for one thing and one thing only. I want to win this tournament and prove that I am the greatest rising star that IWT has ever seen. As an African-American growing up where I did, I always had a target on my back and this tournament right here is no different. I don't think we can beat you two, I know we can beat you. As much as I don't care to get along with Mark, I need a partner to win this tournament. I'm just telling you now Knight, after this tournament is all said and done and I'm crowned the M-V-P of this tag team, I'm going my separate ways. Make the most of having me as your partner for now because I am your ticket to gold, boy."

    Darius quickly moves his arm to his side and gives someone else a chance to speak.

  10. lmfao I remember when it was announced matches didn't have a time limit. Alrighty then.

    Good match folks
  11. We can't have matches lasting forever due to someone not promoing, leaniet enough.
    • Agree Agree x 3
  12. Then what's the point of saying there's no more time limits?
  13. I think they meant more like no hard limits. Like you don't have to worry if you're late by an hour or so. But a match that goes on indefinitely would be a bummer for everyone though.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  14. Good match guys, sorry for making you wait for my promo.
  15. Exact quote from the announcement thread.
  16. Here are your winners...DECLAIN LaVONTE & MARK KNIGHT!
  17. Electro shows his true colours, always knew he was blacker than black.
