    A small part of the crowd pops as the music hits and Brandon walks out, wearing a hoodie - his head bowed down, his face hidden. His walk to the ring is quiet and inanimate. He rolls under the ropes and stays knelt on the mat before he hits with his fists and jumps to his feet, the hoodie swinging back to reveal his face, an intense look in his eyes as he looks around the arena and reaches for microphone, walking back to the middle of the ring, looking down at the mat and starts to speak.

    "This ring... to many its a home. To some it signifies their climb to their eventual summit. To me. To me, this ring is an abyss. This is where dreams have been crushed, this is the ring where countless men and women, talented, gifted men and women have laid out looking up at the lights."

    He pulls his hair back, beginning to walk around the ring.

    "Many have entered this competition, most of them- They are here for the prize at the end. That IWT Championship that lay over Alias' shoulder. The brass ring some may call it."

    He scans the crowd, his face stern and cold. His eyes staring into a far away place.

    "I am not here for the brass ring. At the end, I may walk out as IWT champion... but to me. This tournament. This is a chance for me to show everyone else what happens when you get dragged down to the abyss. To the deep dark pit that lay inside each and every one of us. And Raine.."

    He looks to the ramp as if he's talking to Raine herself.

    "You're a strong contender, people think women can't wrestle. People think they are all Ts and As. You're here to prove them wrong. You HAVE proven them wrong purely by showing how you deserve to be in this tournament! You're probably going to come out here, tell the world why you're the one that deserves the win in this match. That you're the one that deserves to beat me."

    A small smirk breaks across his face, his eyes lighting up.

    "In a perfect world, your conquest to show the world that you are as good as or even better than man in this ring would... This conquest would continue till you reach the top"

    His hand raises as if he's reaching for something.

    "And reach for that brass ring and you will pull it down and make it yours."

    He mimics the action of pulling something down and looks into his open palms. His head shaking as he starts to laugh.

    "But we're not in a perfect world Raine! Deserving doesn't mean anything. The only reality is the 3 count. The ONLY reality is defeat. Because victory always comes second. Defeat is the decider. Defeat in itself, is invincible. And tonight...."

    He walks back to the middle of the ring and looks at the mat.

    "I will personally drag you down to the abyss with me... and I don't care if I never come back..."

    His eyes move to the ramp, his hair falling over his face.

    "Can you say the same thing?"

  4. As the heavy guitar hits, a geared-up poker-faced Raine marches to the front of the stage spreading her arms out horizontally and drinking in the ambience. She intensely gazes at a determined Brandon Pain as she strolls down the ramp and nodding to The Blackest Eyes. The "Vagrant Princess" doesn't mess around and dashes up the steel steps to meet Brandon on the other side of the ropes. She hangs around one of the ring corners facing Brandon with a vicious pout drawn on her face holding a microphone in one of her hands.

    Raine: Good question Brandon.

    *she pauses and raises her eyebrows with a pensive intention*

    The thing is.. I've been sucked down my own abyss multiple times and I don't think anyone can look forward to that. I'd have the guts to live there if I shared that self-destructive disposition that you take pride in with you. But no, not to sound apprehensive Brandon, thanks for the invite, but I'd rather y'know, ward off the experience.

    Instead, when your semi-final defeat greets you, I'd rather save you the hassle and make it fun for you. No hell, no abysses, none of that bullshit, because you're coming to Nirvana with me where you'll let go of your desires for validity and get rid of that sickness you call the dark deep pit of your personal abyss of failure. Nirvana is my home and it is what makes me so powerful yet small, something you are eventually to discover and desperately need. Why conform with paving a road to a further self-destruction, Pain, when you have mother nature's medicine cabinet up your friendly neighbour's sleeve?

    *Raine scans the crowd for a moment*

    A question I sense everyone is daring to ask I feeling sorry for you? Well yes, from the outside, I am, for your good, but not for my disadvantage and not because I've "been there and back" shit, it's more of "you've tried as hard as a laboring cow throughout your long career and always came close and still accepted it". That doesn't make me your cheerleader, but man, your story pushes me to wish you some form of extra promotion in life and not the grunt that you have become. However, let's be clear. The LEAST it would make ME is a softie in that ring I call mine.

    *she strolls up and down the length of the ring*

    I may be a woman, but I ain't composed of sugar and spice and all things nice and plushy, THAT is where I draw the line. Because I'm a lass who wrestles all sorts of critters and bastards and challenged to be part of this tourney doesn't make me worthy of anyone's fucking sympathy card.. You're right, deserving doesn't mean anything, it's all about the there and then, the moment, every split second where you break the handcuffs of your past and memories and reborn a hundred times till you get what you want. I'm sure the changed man that is Brandon Pain agrees with me, but what can he do differently this time against a competitor as unexpected as me?...

    *she finishes rhetorically and releases a mirthless smile*

    Brandon listens to every word from Raine, after she finishes he continues to stare at her before he drops his head, shaking it and laughing.

    "Oh such life... such vigour. Such optimism. It makes me want to be your cheerleader Raine. It makes me want to clap my hands so hard when you walk down that ramp."

    His fingers pull his hair back before looking back at her.

    "Oh no, you've misunderstood. You see, you think of my failures as my weakness, you think that the dark pit as something to be avoided so you can bask in your.. Nirvana."

    The crowd begins to chant for Nir-Va-Na.

    "They share your sentiments. They do not want a dark pit, they do not want to go to a place where everything is stripped away from you. They prefer the energy and glory that your Nirvana brings."

    The chants for Nirvana grows louder

    He shakes his head as he looks around at the audience "SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT THE HELL UP!"

    His eyes fall back to Raine, visibly agitated "But that's where you, and all of them are wrong. This darkness isn't something you can avoid. It isn't something you achieve like Nirvana. It doesnt discriminate, it is an eventuality. It is unavoidable. It is in its own way - Justice. And to avoid it, that to me. That shows a lack of courage. A lack of guts. It shows fear. Fear of the unknown. That fear Raine, it will be your downfall"

    "You shouldn't feel sorry for the only person in this arena that knows the absolute truth. You should feel sorry for yourself Raine, for the inevitable dispair when you realize Nirvana is nothing but an illusion. Something that is holding you back from giving it your all. Don't you see Raine? Nirvana, is something you created to give you hope. Hope in itself, is an illusion. and I do, I do feel sorry for you. Not because of your date with destiny, your impending sojourn in the abyss no.... because how you have come down here, with hopes of an ascent. To the very top. And yet... you will fall. The result, the championship. I don't care about that. But by the end of this match. You will realize the illusion of Nirvana and the reality of the abyss."

    He walks to the corner, turning around to look at her.

    "Unexpected? All this vigour, enthusiasm, drive. You truly think it's unexpected? No. This is the generic profile of an up and comer. It used to be my profile, and countless others. I don't need to know you Raine. I used to be you! But it held me back, thinking about the next match or the title instead of using every ounce of my strength. Don't you see? Optimism, Hope, it only means you're prepared for that future moment. Not now. But me? I am here. I am now."

    "Raine, tonight, it is your true Nirvana, not of hope. But of defeat. Of pain, despair and rage. Your true realization. It will not be an illusion. Irrespective of the result, you will see the tuth. I guarantee it."

    The mic is thrown outside as he gets ready to go.

    *Raine sets her eyes on a departing Brandon Pain and hastily picks up the mic to deliver her final words*

    Raine: It's easy to say that, Pain. It's easy to mistake my intrinsic enthusiasm for newcomer's weakness, my confidence for useless daydreamer's hope and delusion, and a place in Nirvana a form of weakness, a mirage, an evasion from a hard-hitting pervasive reality. However, it's unmistakably hard for someone like you to fathom why I am so different to you from the outside. You can't stand the fact I have transformed my past misadventures, my abysmal shadows into something so glorious, heroic and merry-looking, that I found something so inconceivable as Nirvana, a shelter from what I suffered day in and day out in this wrestling business. It seems as though I've submerged myself in my own crafted deceit, but it's nothing more than what has fuelled me to become what you see right now.

    *She points at Brandon*

    The reality you talk about has made me this way, just like it has made you the way you are, a walking talking death wish. None of us are safe from the "dark pit". I assure you, the brightest flames have seen darker days. What else is certain? Tonight, one of us will catch a face to face glimpse with those buried darkest days, the face of defeat.

    *She drops the mic*
