The organizer, and if this goes according to plan, the commissioner, has finally set all the contracts and brackets into place.
She was quite pleased with herself, and her superiors will be pleased for sure, she thought.
A tournament held in a single ring within a refurbished dungeon complex, in a battle ravaged ancient castle, on a planet that can only be found by a few.
Her master stroke was...of course...having a 64 man roster of probably the greatest wrestlers of all the universes, times and spaces.
63 of which are hypnotized, the 64th will keep his mouth shut...she was sure of it...anyway, he has no choice.
No crowds, no managers, valets, pomp and circumstances, just one on one, in the ring...a dark tournament comprised of dark matches...a professionally filmed tournament to be sold as a must have dvd set for the entire universe...as well as the kick off of a new federation...the crowning of The Champion Of The Universe...
Three laser blasts impacted against and ripped up parts of the large stone bricks that formed one of the ringside walls as well as a ringside table. They had narrowly missed Styles just before Styles was able to Pele Kick Star Slayers rifle out of his hands and out of the ring.
Styles had wasted no time in mocking Slayer during Slayers approach to the ring by yelling out, "Wow...you need a gun dude?...how come?...ya ain't packin nowhere else?"
Slayer, once in the ring and in response to this comment, paused, slowly cocked his rifle and said, "...Hold Still Now".
After initially running for cover, security was able to restore order, as well as smother the table to put the fire out.
The animosity between these two showed immediately after they locked up at the start of the match. Slayer had the strength and size, but Styles was faster and more agile. Styles used his agility to quickly gain the upper hand with a flurry of Right Hands, Arm Drags and Pele Kicks that stunned Slayer. Slayer countered by taking Styles outside the ring and totally beat him senseless, opening a cut on Styles forehead via multiple punches to the head as well as slamming it through the still smouldering table. Slayer then set up Styles for his Mat Mat finisher. As Slayer drove Styles head first onto to canvas, he spun slightly making sure he split open Styles cut further.
Slayer hooked the leg but to Slayers suprise, Styles kicked out at a 2 count, but it definitely took a lot out of him to do so. Slayer wasted no time in setting up Styles for another Mat Mat, he wanted to finish this, but before he knew it, Styles spun around, grabbed him and Powerslammed Slayer back first into the ring off of the turnbuckle. Now Styles wasted no time in setting up Slayer for his Styles Clash finisher. It was a text book execution, Styles hooked Slayers leg, but now Slayer kicked out at a 2 count. Slayer couldn't kick out of Styles second Styles clash finisher though, this one sealed the deal.
A.J. Styles advances on.
A battered and bloody Styles walks right up to the camera, flexes a bicep and says, "These are the only guns I", and is then immediately hit from the right side of the screen by a rifle butt to his temple which sends him sprawling.
