  3. I'll get one soon.
  4. The lights turn out and the arena is silent for a long moment. Then, an old grandma in the audience notices that her cell phone is lighted up and is playing a ringtone that she has never downloaded.

    Schizo comes out from behind the stage, looking around at everyone suspiciously. Schizo walks over to the old grandma and suggests that she should answer the phone. The old Grandma's pacemaker goes haywire and paramedics immediately come in and take her out on a gurney. Schizo looks confused at what just happened but just shrugs his shoulders and continues to the ring. He slips into the ring and lays down against the bottom turnbuckle as if it were a pillow. He begins talking into the microphone.

    Schizo: Scott... Scott. The warm up matches are over and we have both made it beyond the threshold. Perhaps this is where the real competition begins. Perhaps not. I guess we'll see as it all progresses.

    I like you Scott, although it may seem I don't know you. I like the unknown. I know the unknown. However, by knowing the unknown then the unknown becomes known and it's never again unknown.... you know? I wallow in the unknown because it is the place where I feel most comfortable. The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. So be the unknown, be the one who walks deep within those shadows that other men can only speculate on what lies beyond. Embrace that.

    But the thing is that there are things known and unknown and between are the doors. The doors separate the things that we fear from our perception. People think that these doors protect them by keeping them from seeing that which they truly fear. But that is a fallacy. For true fear only comes from the unknown... from not knowing what lies beyond that door. For you see, when you don't know what lies beyond the door, it can be anything. It can be terrifying. It can often be made so much worse based solely on the depths of what your imagination makes it into.

    The problem, though, Scott is that the doors hold no mystery from me. I am the keeper of the doors. I am the holder of the locks. I have opened every one of the doors and I know what lies behind them. You are not unknown to me. You have no secrets. I know what makes you tick. But most importantly, I know what you fear. You see, the difference is that as the keeper of the doors to the unknown, I can control what is seen. I can see you, but you can't look through the doors and see me. But I have opened them and seen you. I have closed them before you looked back.

    You don't know me Scott. You may have built me up as more or less dangerous than I am. But the truth is, by not truly knowing what you're facing, I am much more than you can imagine.

    I am the keeper of the doors and your door to advancement in the tournament and your door to the title is closed.

    As the music blasts through the speakers, Scott Fargo makes his way out on the ramp. Fargo, wearing a black and red Bullad Club shirt in place of his regular t-shirt, stands with a microphone in hand as he takes a moment to look around and take in the overwhelming negative reaction he is receiving. With a confident smirk on his face, he begins slowly walking down the ramp. Fargo then walks up the steel steps and onto the apron where he locks eyes with Schizo. With a chuckle, Fargo begins talking as the music fades out.

    "I have waited for a match with you. You know that? Not because I believe you are a good match up for me. Not because I think you and I would have a five star classic. You certainly don't pose a threat to me. So why would I be looking forward to a match with a man likes you? A man who craves pain, who likes the taste of his own blood? Quite simply, it's because I want a punching bag. And if you are as resilient and in love with pain as much as you claim you do then, well, you're the perfect candidate to be said punching bag. Because I stand out here a frustrated man. I get frustrated quite easily. I am frustrated about shit from ten years ago, I am frustrated about shit from this morning. So I'm gonna use you to let those frustrations out."

    Fargo climbs into the ring, not taking his confident stare off of Schizo.

    "What I am not frustrated about is my "loss", if you can even call it that, to Jack Forte."

    The mere mention of the IWT Intercontinental Champion garners loud cheers and applause. Just as a small Jack Forte chant is about to break out, Fargo shuts them down by instantly talking over them as he paces around.

    "Since you people seemingly want to fucking hound me about Retribution. I'll give you what you want. You see, I went out at IWT Retribution, my second ever IWT PPV and wrestled in the main event against a man with legendary status. Not only did I wrestle him, I gave him his biggest challenge yet. I was a bigger challenge to him than that ridiculous fiveman championship scramble. I was a bigger challenge to him than Aids Johnson, Michael, Amos and Nick combined. And what happened? He beat me. One, two three. I don't deny that. Fair play to him. He beat me clean. I left the building without his belt, or his streak. But I did leave with his strength. I left with Bishop's strength. I left on my own damn feet and went out celebrating with my boys. But Jack and his best friend, Bishop? They both left in stretchers and spent the night spooning in a hospital bed. But..."

    Fargo stops and turns his attention back to Schizo.

    "That's the past. Tonight, it's about the present and the future. It's about the Grand Prix. It's not about the past, it's not about doors or keys or whatever the fuck the voices in your head tell you it's about. You wanna say you know me? Tell me my mother's name. Tell me the name of my first English teacher. Tell me what move I won my very first match with. Tell me who I faced in my first match. Where did I work before the IWT? What brand razor do I use?"

    Fargo smirks.

    "Why should I believe you? Why should I fear you because you "opened a door" and now "know me"? You are a fucking joke, mate. You've take too many chairs to the head. Or maybe being dropped on your head in the infamous "Ice Match" in Antarctica was the bump that knocked you fucking loopy."

    Fargo points at Schizo.

    "You were right about one thing..."

    Fargo lowers his arm.

    "I don't know you all too well besides your last VICE match against Leo Taylor, who is a bigger joke than you, by the way. But what I do know about you, is that despite how many times to you cut your forehead open with your fingernails, or punch yourself face, or bash your head into a brick wall, you're a man, you might not be a very smart man, but you're a still a man with a beating heart. A beating heart that I will rip out and crush under my boot as you lay dying in the middle of this rip."

    Fargo looks at Schizo with unwavering confident stare.

    "So, Mr. Doorman, you wanna close the door on my journey? You wanna lock it up and throw away the key? Well, I'll smash that fucking door down, and tear you down with it."

  6. Schizo finishes listening to Scott Fargo, a quizzical look on his face. He gets up off the ring apron and begins walking around the ring, his head continuously cocking to one side and then the other.

    Schizo: You're going to use me as a punching bag because I like pain? You see, Scott, you have just demonstrated exactly what I was saying above. I am the unknown to you. You have no idea who you are about to face because you cannot understand even the basic features of myself. My love of pain, my romance with agony isn't as simple as you hurting me. It's as simple as me using myself to hurt you. It's about me breaking my body into little bits as long as I break yours down even more. It's about me ripping my very flesh off if it results in me RIPPING OFF YOURS!

    "Schizo shakes his head, attempting to calm himself"

    Schizo: But I do know you, Scott. You asked me to reveal your mother's name. You asked me to reveal your first English teacher. You even asked me about the moves you used to win your previous matches. Scott, Scott, Scott. None of that tells me anything about you that is important. Superficial information about your life is meaningless. I know the important things about you Scott. I know how much pressure it will take to break your wrist. I know how much hair I can rip out of your head. I know how much flesh I have to rip off your body to make you scream.

    But more than anything, you revealed to me even more information about how to defeat you. You revealed to me your demons. You spent about half your time not even talking about me. You spent half your time talking about your loss to Jack Forte. Yet you claim you're not frustrated by it. You are clearly not frustrated about it. You are completely HAUNTED by it. And that tells me more about you than you could ever want me to know. It tells me about what aggravates you. It tells me what buttons to push. It also tells me that I am going to beat you definitively. You see, Scott, I have also lost to Jack Forte. But this is the first time I've mentioned the loss since it happened. The loss means nothing to me. I exacted pain. I hurt him. I achieved exactly what I set out to do. Victories are inconsequential. If I get a victory, I relish not in the fact that I won, but in the fact that I took something away from you. If I don't get a victory, then I relish in the fact that I at least took a year or two off your life.

    Losing not only means something to you, losing means everything to you. And THAT tells me everything I need to know about you. It tells me that although the physical pain I cause you might not last long beyond this match, this mental pain I cause you by making you lose this tournament is going to DRIVE YOU CRAZY! You will never forget it. You will cry over it. You will anguish over it. You will complain about it. You will lose sleep over it. THE LOSS WILL COMPLETELY DESTROY YOUR MIND and that.... THAT... is the only motivation I need to go into this match for the first time and try to win. Because although the victory means little to me, the way your defeat will crush you means everything to me. I will cause you so much psychological pain that you will be crying over this loss when you're sitting on the porch of an retirement home, living your last years out in pain and sorrow.

    You asked why should you believe me? Because in mere moments you're going to be in the ring with me, Scott. I warn you, Scott. Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac. Do you think it's wise to take your focus off the homicidal maniac? You're not even focused on me and that is why you're about to lose.

    Confused, Fargo stares at Schizo. His confusion eventually fades as he begins to laugh.

    "I'm sorry..I'm sorry. But, how exactly are you gonna rip hair out of my head?"

    Fargo points at his bald head.

    "I'm bald, motherfucker."

    Fargo reverts back to a more serious tone as he paces back and forth in front of Schizo.

    "How am I supposed to be afraid of what dark secrets you know about myself when you can't clearly see that I am bald? How am I supposed to be intimidated by you all seeing eyes when you cannot even see what's in front of you? You say I'm haunted by Retribution, yet I had, and still have, a big ol' smile on my fucking face while I was off partying with James Dragon and Danny Jacobs. If you know all my secrets as you say you do, fine, tell me. Tell me, tell the IWT, tell the people in the crowd my secrets! Go on do it! Demonstrate you power, demonstrate your knowledge!"

    Fargo stares with confidence at Schizo.

    "As I expected. Nothing more to say? Is it because you don't know what to say? Is it because you don't know what I am? Is it because you know as much about me as much as I know about you? Or maybe it's because you don't know anything at all. You are just another man in this company that talks a big game, but can't follow through with what he said. I'm different. I say things, and I'm right about those things. At Retribution, I said a legend would fall. I was right. I said a new one would rise. I was right. Tonight, I'm saying I will beat you. But I won't just beat you, Schizo. I will break you. And, guess what? Well, you probably know, since you "know me so well". Tell me what I'm gonna say."

    Fargo arrogantly stares at Schizo.

    "Since you clearly don't know, I'll just tell ya. I'm gonna be right. See, When I hit you. And I mean really, REALLY hit you, you are gonna feel pain like you have never felt before. And that pain? That'll stick with you. It'll never go away. It'll irritate you for life. You're with your loved ones and they hug you and you'll feel that pain and remember me. You'll be with your kids, and they'll be running around, yeah, and trip and fall and be in pain and you will remember me."

    Fargo leans back in the corner as he continues talking.

    "You seem so set in your belief that you know and understand me on some kind of deep and mystical level. You seem to think you know me better than I know myself, but that's just not true. Schizo, whatever kind of man you think I am, you're wrong. Whatever you think you can do to me and to end my journey in the grand prix, you're wrong. Once this bell rings, you're gonna look pretty goddamn stupid while I toss around this ring from bell to bell. But as not as dumb as you'll look when you realise that you know nothing about me at all. Because until I get my hands on you, and drop you on your head over and over and over again, you don't understand, you don't know what I am capable of in this ring."

    Fargo walks over to Schizo and stands right in his face.

    "You think you know me, yeah?"

    Fargo steps back.

    "You aren't some psychic, you're a schizophrenic. You're delusionally insane. You like to think you know all there is to know because the voices you hear in your head tell you that. But, I'll do you a solid, yeah. I'll get rid of them for you. I'll hit you and hit you and hit you until they are gone and you finally be able to see clearly what this situation is."

    Fargo smirks.

    "It's blind leading the blind, my friend."

    Fargo drops the microphone and backs off into the corner and prepares for the match ahead.

  9. Enjoyed writing this for the most part. It was a fun match.

    This is out of character and coming from me, not Schizo but even bald guys have eyebrows :)

  12. This is actually a really good match. My man Fargo killed it, and with the amount of e-fedding that Dojo has done, I think experience really was the deciding factor here. You did really good though, @Jacob Fox , I like Schizo as a mysterious character and if Dojo wasn't as good as he was, my vote would certainly go to you. Would suggest trying to make it look nicer so that it's easier to read, though. A certain font can make your character feel more dangerous and your message gets across better (Ex: Look at Spawn's promo's. His font and the way he visualizes his promo's (making it easy to read, making it fit the character etc.) makes him feel like it's a really scary man. With a standard font, that sense of realism doesn't come off as great, which causes your message to not come off as great, I feel like.)

    I appreciate the advice, but it's completely based upon who is reading it. Honestly, all those fonts and everything make promos very difficult for me to read.

    Plus I've been writing e-fed promos and play by mail promos for longer than he's been alive...since 1993 :) So whatever made his better, it was something more than just experience :)

    I put a lot of work into Schizo actually but it's probably known that I didn't actually create him. Perhaps one of the reasons that other people have done better with their wrestlers over me is that they have a stronger sense of ownership than I do. It's a lot easier to work with your own children than try to work with others.

    Don't misunderstand me, Schizo is a fun character.
