Interview With a Messiah II
The camera focuses in on Axel and Ruby the regular VOW commentary. Ruby smiles wide and messes with her hair making sure it looks good on tv. In the background are signs for various wrestlers. Ziu Zhong “Zero to Hero” is the most prominent bobbing up and down in the Quebec crowd, but there is a lot of hometown love for “The Next Level Athlete”.
Axel Reid: I am sorry to inform everyone watching at home, and the fans in this arena. We are going to take you to a pre-recorded interview with Casanova English by The Orphanage’s Bryan Combs. Apparently English figures himself too good to deal with our lowly professional broadcasting staff.
Ruby Parvati: You act like you had to get a degree or something. . .
Axel Reid: I did . . .
Ruby Parvati : Well some of use aren't blessed with brains AND beauty I guess. Anyway, finally an entertaining part of this PPV we get to hear from “The Modern Day Messiah” Casanova English. Sit back and enjoy the show as always.
The big screen shoots on and there skinny red haired Bryan Combs sits with a wide glad grin stretched across his face. It is the dark Orphanage studio in St. Paul. A banner is hung in the background housing Orphanage propaganda.
Bryan Combs: Hello Mr. English nice for you to take time out of your busy schedule to set down at your own establishment. Anyway, this is the second major interview with VOW wrestler Casanova English. Tonight he is in the biggest match of his career. . . a sentence we often say week after week with this young superstar. Again Casanova as the public knows I do not agree with your methods, but you have backed up almost every bit of trash you have talked. That is except Ziu Zhong. You win the World Visionary Championship then. . . POOF! In one title defense Ziu pins you to the mat and takes away the championship you chased for a year. How did you feel that night English did you feel like a failure? Did you feel like you let your “flock” down? Do you think it has anything to do with Cera no longer wanting to be a part of The Orphanage? When you loose a monumental member like that people talk, on top of loosing the Championship. It seems that the road has gotten a little rocky these past few weeks for you Mr. English.
The camera is panned out to reveal Mr. English sitting opposite Combs. English is dressed in a white V neck, jeans, and black leather boots. A cigarette hands already lit between his fingers. Bryan went with the hard question to kick things off. This is his moment to shine VOW on PPV.
English: Did I feel like a failure when Ziu Zhong took the World Visionary Championship from me? What a way to start this interview Bryan. You are always such a gentleman. To be honest when I lost to Ziu I felt like trash, not so much I had failed. . . but I can do better. What scares me is I thought I had him beat. Walking in to Breakthrough that night I was as confident as ever, plain and simple I underestimated Ziu. The championship loss is one thing, but loosing to a man who has been manufactured by VOW itself to be consumed by all these poor fans. I am ashamed I fell to a corporate robot, a pop culture loving, fan bantering piece of redundance. See that is the issue, if I had of lost that championship to anyone else I bet I would have that one on one match I deserve. Instead they are back to protecting their prize, their face. Their OH SO marketable Ziu Zhong. They think that tossing all these people into the match that they can keep Ziu away from English, but I put a wrench in that plan didn't I?
English takes two sharp puffs off his cancer stick blowing two equally sharp straight blades of smoke back out quickly.
Bryan Combs: Yes, last week at Breakthrough you suggested Ziu and yourself start the match inside the cage.
English: That is the funny thing. They think locking me in a cage will prevent me from becoming the winner? It didn't work so well when I ended Star's career. I know how to use my environment it is my specialty. Whether I sandwich Seth Iser between the ropes and the cage putting pressure on those withered joints and ligaments; or I spring off it to keep the speed advantage over Valquist. Hell, I could even tie Stacy Jones' hair to the mesh and headbutt her mercilessly. What I really want to do though, what I really want to do is wait for Ziu to get to the top, get ready for that devastating Ziu Fly. . . then I will scale the cage and I will send him crashing to the ground with a sickening thud. It will be a metaphor. A metaphor for how Ziu rose like a phoenix, only to burst into flame and turn to ash. When that door shuts and I have my 5 minutes with Ziu Zhong. I am going to show these people that he is not a champion, he is no hero, he is man. He is flesh and blood, and I promise you. . . your champion will bleed.
Casanova attacks his cigarette maliciously as he inhales deep three times. He blows a plume of smoke into the tiny studio so large it causes Bryan to cough and wave his hand around his face.
Bryan Combs: That is well and good, but there are 4 other people besides Ziu to worry about. You have Valquist, Stacy Jones, Seth Iser. . . and well the man you have instilled tremendous amounts of trust in over the past year Brett Carson. Do you think that The Next Level Athlete could compromise your win?
English: You know when a lion rules a pride long enough eventually a young lion steps up to challenge for the right to rule. I can't blame Brett for wanting to give into his nature, for wanting to grab that brass ring. I can't blame him, but if it comes down to Brett and I. I have no other choice but to show you why these people call ME the leader. I see the hunger in your eyes Carson, I always have. I know you are just waiting for your time, and if it is at Heatstroke I will be a man and shake your hand, but if I do the same. If I show you your God damn place. . . I expect you to do the same. I expect you to be by my side after that bell rings, because soon people who mistake my kindness for weakness will suffer punishment. For if you are not with me, you are against me.
Bryan Combs: Well sadly even with the addition of people like Matt Robinson and StuFish.pif The Orphanage seems to be loosing steam.
English: Loosing steam? You need to stop watching a bi-weekly episodic series, and take a look at the real world. This is on a much larger scale Bryan. I have created my own company separate from VOW. I sell my own merch, I sell my own interview rights. You don't think I am getting a cut for this air time? I have been gaining followers. People who are tired experiencing the every day function of the cooperate machine, and Bryan we are ripping it down from the inside out. You shouldn't be worrying about the wrestlers I have on The Orphanage pay roll. You need to worry about the ones who have shares in VOW. You need to worry about what the waiter is putting in your food. The squared circle is merely where I decided to wage my war, there are all different kinds of espionage going on all over the place. From hotel bathrooms to police precincts.
Byran Combs: I guess I will have to take your word for it. There has been a few occasions where you have taken subtle shot's at Valquist. Where did this vendetta arise?
English: I know the type. I know the type that runs in when things are hot, and jumps off when they think the ship is sinking. I am the one floating this ship, I'm the only one giving this ship a smidgen of bouncy. He waltzed back in here when things are at their peak and management again gives him a golden path to the Championship race. This isn't the division I fought a year to solidify. The division I visioned was one that didn't loose on our bi-weekly show to a second tier champion who is a man child. Valquist losses his last three matches, his last three. Last time that happened he walked his entitled ass right out the door and floated off to his Infinity City. See I don't have a law firm to fall back on, sure The Orphanage has grown, but I am fighting to eat. I am fighting to fund my dream, my vision. I'm not going to let little Valarie walk in like she owns the place. No, this is my house. I proved that last month. I proved it when I put the GPW World Champion in her place on VOW PPV. I can't remember what Valquist was up to that night, but it sure as hell wasn't putting this company on the map.
Bryan Combs: I see, I see. So you really think you are the prodigal son of this company?
Casanova taps the ash off his cigarette into a small black ash tray on the table. Casanova reaches out to a bottle of water to lubricate preparing to answer.
English: At this point I think it is the truth. I have bled in this company far more than anyone else in the back. I dispaled week in and week out that I am the best wrestler this company has to offer. I have yet to face consecutive losses. I set the standard for this company and week in and week out I am punished for it. Punished for being the best this hole has to offer. How does that make any sense? Ryan Omega gives the GPW World Champion tickets to MY SHOW and he didn't even have the guts to be a man and put that strap around my waist. I tell you what Ryan. . . I win at Heatsroke and at Breakthrough I will have you pull that Championship around the my waist and declare me the TWO time World Visionary Champion.
Bryan Combs: Well it isn't set in stone you are walking out the champion. There is a man a lot of fans around the world would consider the most dangerous man in wrestling Seth Iser.
English: Dangerous? That big old teddy bear. Look I remember watching Seth Iser slay his opponents, but lets be honest we are far separated from those days of his prime. You really think his body can hold up a run as World Champion. Man or monster, you still feel pain, you still bleed, and your career it still ends. Seth warned me about V, someone he helped train in this business and I put the b**ch in a body bag. I ended her career in this ring. He tried to put her out of her misery dropping her with his finisher, but Iser I pulled the trigger. I put down the monster you created, and if you enter my pathway to The Revolution I will kill Dr. Frankenstein too.
Bryan Combs: I think you are under estimating Seth Iser Mr. English. Stacy Jones is a fan favorite walking into this match. The locker room really seems to be behind her. It would be bitter sweet vengeance after bringing her ex-husband back to attack her last month.
English: Let me talk to Stacy directly for a second Mr. Combs.
English slams his cigarette into the table head first obliterating the ember.
English: Stacy since I entered this company I have been whipping you, now I might understand to an extent you might like that. Unfortunately, Heatstroke won't be bringing that euphoric orgasm you are patiently panting for. No, it's still not your time little girl. The dark cloud that has been cast over your beautiful blue sky is going to linger. You want to tell me that I don't deserve to be here because I am a former champion? Baby, you are getting denser by the second. Those are the rules of wrestling, you should know that more than anyone. I mean that is how you got the Xcel Championship back from Carson, and it was how Ryder Blade embarrassed you. Which begs the question, using your own logic why are you in this match? I'll tell you why, it's the same reason they plopped Iser in. You guys signed early, you jumped on the bandwagon early and somehow these idiots think they owe you something.
Casanova leans into the camera now, folding his hands in front of him.
English: I know Stacy you are proud of your history. So is Val, and Seth. I get it companies like ICW, NEW, and NWA where huge for you. They where the companies that you carved your legacies, you solidified your careers. Well VoW. . . is not unclaimed territory. No, at Heatstroke I will show you that it is mine. The vision belongs to The Messiah.
English smiles into the camera his eyes zoned in intense, not blinking. The camera stares back just sitting there the only thing heard are the faint breaths of air calmly escaping from the cold blooded Casanova.
The scene fades to a black screen abruptly before sending the viewers back to the arena.
