  2. Rio Nakayama emerges to a new theme, he recieves possibly the best cheer of his IWT career yet his expression wouldn't let you know he's happy, a focused grimace planted onto his face as he hastily makes his way to the ring. When entering he gestures for a microphone before paces back and forth, he theatrically tests the ropes, pulling, pushing and kicking them. Once he has calmed down, Nakayama begins his little rant.


    Rio takes an unneccesarily long dramatic pause after bring up his opponent, savouring the sound of his name on his tongue.

    "I ain't here to disrespect you. I ain't even here with the intention of hurting you. I know I'll have to but It's not something I have any major desire for. What's supposed to happen now is that you come down to this ring and we tear each other to pieces but a lot of things that were supposed to happen haven't!"

    Another long dramatic pause.

    "I was supposed to be the weak link of the Bullad Club but I'm not! I was supposed to accept that IW3 wanted to not even acknowledge my existence but I didn't! I was supposed to not be facing Eddy at Dragon Rising but I'm gonna! I see that you're a formidable figther Schizo, already accomplishing what I aim to and even in your unreadable, BARBED WIRE infested mind I can see a true ring tactician, there is method to your madness."

    Nakayama's voice suddenly grows much louder, there is a noticeable strain on the pitch of his voice now as if he were close to tears and veins begins to extrude from his temple and neck.

    "At Dragon Rising, I will become Television Champion, a belt which is tainted with the blood, sweat and tears of the people who have held it and people who will hold it, including your own, people will and have already begun killing themselves for that belt that will soon be around my waist and hey I know you have the same aspirations! But it's really just a possession at the end of the day and once again I know you have the same feelings, we both think similiar, we both like to fly low but EVERYBODY and I mean everybody knows that when you fly low, one day you're going to crash and burn!

    "BUT I DOUBT! I doubt that you share any of that same acknowledgment or respect for me! Now I'm wondering what I have to do to achieve that, simply beating you won't do! Do you want me to rip your arm off it's socket, maybe gouge an eye or two? For hundreds! Thousands of men, women and children to see! Is that what you want me to do huh? You better believe that isn't a rhetorical question because I'm expecting an ANSWER about that very question when your drag yourself out here! Then I'm going to have you ask yourself another question following our match and that one being...was it really all worth it?"

  3. The lights go out and all is silent for a long moment. In the front row, a cheap slut's cell phone begins ringing, but it's playing a ringtone that she never downloaded.

    Schizo emerges from behind the curtain and comes up to the ramp. He goes up to the cheap slut and instead of indicating to her to answer her phone as usual, he grabs the phone from her and smashes it on the on the ground. Scared, the cheap slut sits down in her chair. Schizo then walks toward the ring.

    Schizo: I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a psychopath, no more than a singer can help the inspiration to sing..I was born with the evil one standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since. And he has guided me on a path of carnage unequaled in a wrestling ring.

    Schizo cocks his head to the side and his long hair falls in his face, covering his mask. He is silent for a moment, letting the meaning of what he just said sink in. His tone is more somber and serious than usual.

    Schizo: Whether I respect you or not is irrelevant. I respected Cousin Eddy and I still was willing to try and take him down with a hammer to the skull. He, however, got the better of me for that moment. I took him to the limit and I was willing to hurt him more than I have hurt anyone else. And I was willing to hurt him badly, I was willing to mutilate him because I respected him. I respected him because I knew that he could dish out extraordinary. I also knew he could take it. I respected him because I knew I would have to utterly destroy him in order to beat him. Love of pain, love of agony, that is what I respect. He had it. I respected it.

    You see, the last thing you want Schizo to do is respect you. I will hurt you so much more than someone I don't respect. I will hurt you so much more than someone I disdain. Because to earn my respect, you have to be beaten half to death first.

    But respect makes no difference this time. That won't change what I am going to do to you in this match. To fight Cousin Eddy again, I have to get through you. Right now, you're standing in the worst place in the entire world. You're standing between me and Cousin Eddy. And there is nothing in this world I want more than to get back into the ring with him. And if I have to skin you alive in order to get through you, you better bet your very soul that I am going to do it. The sad thing is that you've done nothing to make me angry. You just have the misfortune of being in the worst place in the world at the worst time.

    You want to show you weren't the weak link of the Bullad Club? Please show me. Prove it to me. I welcome it. Do what you feel you need to because in order to stop me with the mood I am in, you are going to have hit me harder than the entire Bullad Club could have done.

    The Televsion Championship is bloodstained, you are correct. And by the end of this match and by the end of the championship match, it is going to be blood drenched. It is going to be around the blood soaked waist of Schizo. You are correct we both do fly low. And those who fly low DO crash and burn. But the difference between us is that I LOVE TO CRASH AND BURN! It's not even a match if I don't. And I will crash and burn in this match with you, but you better believe that I am going to pull your down into those fires of hell with me. The only difference is, I'll live through it.

    You see, I told you the devil is in me. And by being in me, he knows my thoughts and he knows my feelings. He knows what I want and what I am willing to do to get what I want. And right at this moment, even the devil is cowering in fear. He knows what I am about to do and it scares him. He has the foresight to see what you are going to look like when this match is over. And he is afraid.

    Rio laughs very loudly.

    "You say the devil is in you? Maybe but he isn't only with you. There is an evil inside us all Schizo, all it takes is one bad day or moment for a good sane man to lose sight of whom he really is, I wonder what your bad day was because you blaming it on a fictional being infecting you on birth is merely a trick you've fooled yourself into believing. I mentioned some of the similarites between us earlier but the similarities ended there, you said yourself, you love to crash and burn and you've accepted the fact that you've lost sight of the old you forever. I won't be like you Schizo, I don't want to be. If there is a chance that the old Rio Nakayama, the prideful one, is still within me then I'm going to find him, I've had bad days and now I'm hoping one good one will render those absolute."

    Nakayama pauses to take a breather, his eyes meet directly with Schizo's.

    "Maybe we have our similarities. Maybe I have got a screw or two loose these days and if that is the case then I'm looking for my fix and I've seen the way you loved that TV title, how Eddy loves that TV title, the secret pride that psychopaths such as yourself don't wantto admit you carry but it's there nevertheless right? And now? Now I'm starting to think that the TV title is the fix! That it's the bridge! The connection I need to feel right again or maybe it'll pull a fast one on me, the burden will only increase my troubles and only break me even further but we won't know till I've pryed it from Eddy's cold dead hands right? And you right now are stopping that hope of a fix becoming a reality! So, I'm warning you now! You're in my path and if you stay there you're going to get run over! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO CHANGE THAT?"

    On the last sentence, Nakayama's voice steadily grows louder and louder to become nearly impossible to listen to without bleeding eardrums, so loud in fact that someone backstage has to lower his microphone volume.

    "You love to crash and burn yet you want desperately want that TV title back? Schizo, I don't see anything different with you! You crashed and burned against Eddy and you lost! If you get past me you're going to face Eddy again and you're going to lose because you're not better than Eddy! That's your plan right? To face Eddy till the end of time because you know that he's just as twisted as yourself, yet now he's become better than you, more fucked up than you and you're hopelessly trying to get another victory over him because without him being on the same boat as you? YOU HAVE NO PURPOSE!"

    After the last sentence, Nakayama angrily paces back and forth in the ring, furiously kicking the ropes a couple of times as he does, when he begins speaking again he points dead at Schizo and his voice is quieter.

    "You're not better than me or any of the Bullad Club either. Frankly? You're just an idiotic freak looking for his next dose of violence, like a drug addict looking for his latest high. It never changes and never will change for you because you don't know what to do anything different, the devil or evil or whatever you want to call it wasn't born with me! It crawled it's way out of my skin and I'm not going to be a fool who lets it take over! You say the devil cowers in fear at the thought of what you're going to do to me but I think it's you whom is hiding from the devil, you let yourself dissolve into these violent ways because you're too scared to do anything different!"

    Nakayama once again breaks into constant shouting but this time somehow even louder than before.

    "I am going to do something different! I am going to be the one that ends both of your twisted masquerades! You! Eddy! The Devil! Whomever the fuck makes up the circus freaks here is going to be dead and gone once that TV title rests on MY SHOULDERS!"

    Rio takes a second to calm down and there is at least a ten second pause as the two men glare fiercely into one another's eyes.

    "The only thing that will be left standing after Dragon Rising is the old Rio Nakayama and a Championship belt."

  5. Schizo doesn't move. He simply continues to look at Rio from outside the ring.

    Schizo: Rio, how little you understand a single thing about me. How easily you fall for every trick and every lie.

    I guess you're way too slow to understand several things. First, I was using the devil as a metaphor. You make several claims about me but you must not know anything about me because before EVERY match I EVER do, I qoute people and speak in metaphors. I was also paraphrasing a famous serial killer because... you know... I qoute and paraphrase people a lot too. But that's obviously way too high level for you to understand.

    Perhaps, though, I am being mean to you. Maybe you're just not smart enough to understand what a metaphor is, but it basically means I wasn't being literal. I was using the image and nature of the idea of the devil, who is easy to use as a metaphor since he doesn't exist, to personify my mood and intentions in a way your simple mind could understand. Obviously, I WAY overestimated you. In fact, I highly doubt you could have understood such a long sentence. So let me slow it down a bit for you. What I was saying is, "I like hurting people and I don't feel bad for doing it." Was that easier for you to understand? Or do I have to slow it down again? "Me hurt you... now..." Does that economy of words and grammer confuse you a bit less? I hope so, because I can't dumb it down anymore than that without talking like a caveman with a couple of grunts.

    Schizo shakes his head a little and actually looks mildly amused.

    Schizo: And you think I care about the TV title? The title itself is completely meaningless. If you think this has anything to do with me wanting it back, you haven't paid an ounce of attention to me ever. The belt means something to you and it means something to Cousin Eddy. Eddy wants it because it will bring victims to him to maim. You want it because you obviously have certain shortcomings that keep you dressed in the locker room and make the ladies laugh at you. I like to cause pain. So if I keep you from getting it, you have nothing to compensate those shortcomings. If I keep Cousin Eddy from having it, then he doesn't get to beat up as many people as I do.

    I crashed and burned against Cousin Eddy? Hate to break it to you, but Eddy and I are one and one right now. He beat me in a regular match and yeah, I crashed and burnt. But I beat him in a death match where there were no rules and both of us could be as vicious as we want to be. A slow minded punk like you could NEVER hope to come close to doing to Cousin Eddy what I did to him. He'd eat you for breakfast. Luckily for you, I won't let Eddy hurt you. I'm going to rip you to pieces right now to spare you the humiliation you'd suffer when he destroyed you.

    I'm going to tell you something, Rio, something that should have been obvious from the beginning. You call me a sick freak. You say I am not as good as any members of the "Bullad Club." You think I'm psychotic? Haha. Don't you think that a person who isn't psychotic at all would call themselves something like "Schizo" to convince his less bright opponents that he is insane? Don't you think that would be an advantage? We call it "mind games." But we already established you're not really that gifted in the "bright" department so maybe mind games are beyond you. Hell, you probably already forgot what I just said so I can pretend to be crazy again.

    I couldn't care less about you or the joke of the stable the "Bullad Club" was. Talk about how great you were. Talk about how great your group was. Talk all you want because people like you, all you have is talk. Do you think I give a flying fuck that you think I am not better than you or your precious group of crybabies who couldn't last five minutes with someone like me? Talk about how great you think you are all day.

    Schizo points to his scars.

    I don't need to talk myself up to anyone. These scars and the scars on the dozens of wrestlers whose careers I have ended do all the talking for me. I don't have to keep telling myself I'm great. You only have to tell yourself that because you know that you're not and by telling yourself over and over, maybe you'll eventually believe it. Maybe one of these people in this arena will believe it. But that's not how I prove myself. You're about to find out in a few seconds how I do my talking.

    Schizo shakes his head again.

    Schizo: Oh, I forgot, you're not smart to follow all of these words so I have to dumb it down for you. You... Lose...Now...

    Read and vote!
  13. Schizo, your promos are good when you're not killing Richard (RIP) or making fun of Trump.

    I'll give them both a second read through in a bit before I vote. Good stuff from the both of you.
  14. I have to go with Rio. Schizo's promos didn't really feel like his character would be saying it. He usually spoke in a metaphorical tone, and this seemed barebones. His first promo was fine, and in-tune, though. Also, in his first promo he built the TV title up as a title that's had many vicious wars over it, but in the second he called it meaningless.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  15. 3's and 7's has been stuck in my head since you posted your first promo
  16. Great match guys! Really enjoyed it. Rio pipped it for me i think but i liked the twist with the phone smashing! Did not see that coming XD
  17. I don't think you read my promo very well. I didn't build up the TV title at all. I said it was bloodstained and I would have it. But then I explained very clearly that I only wanted it to keep the others from having it. That's not contradictory at all.

    Now, obviously I don't care really who wins or loses. But don't state a reason you voted against me if that reason doesn't exist.
  18. Sorry, I still don't understand why you think I was making fun of Trump. If you reread that promo, it was more defendable of Trump. The guy thought Schizo was an illegal immigrant, Schizo showed him his green card and the guy didn't mention it further, implying he accepted the green card as proof. Now, if the guy had ripped up the green card or said "Obama must have faked that card," then you'd have a point. People paint all Trump supporters of being violent Xenophobes and this guy obviously was not one of them.

    Trust me, if I want to make fun of someone, I will all out make fun of them to the point of ridicule.
  19. Before I give a proper lil review of this match I do wanna say, Fox. If people don't get your promos, that's on you mate. You're the writer after all so it falls on you to make these things readable and make sense. I also think you weren't being consistent with the title thing since if you want it anyway then why say it has no meaning? Even if you want it to lure people towards your character for more bloodshed, it still holds value to you. Plus I've never really been a fan of the opening bits so I can't really call you out on them rarely making sense without being an asshole.

    I can't vote but I would have given it to Rio. I do think Fox's first promo was pretty good however but overall as a match I'd say Aurtle's new aggressive Rio who is obsessed with not being "The weak link" makes him much more interesting to me. Schizo may have even fallen into a trap by deriding Rio as the weak link since the whole point is that it fuels Rio to ensure that's not how he's perceived, giving his character another layer to his promo.

    That's only my opinion though, sorry if I don't get it.
