It was a bad day for the publicists and promoters at Warrior Wrestling.
Trying to get some attention around the new federation, Warrior Wrestling made the bold decision to host an anything goes hardcore tournament. Sparing no expense, they pulled in some of the biggest names in modern wrestling history--The Iron Viking, Scarface and the famed Primetime Championship Wrestling legend himself, King Crimson. Rounding out the four-man tournament was a woman, which might have raised eyebrows in the past, but Athena Fury's 100-0 record on the indy circuit--mostly against male opponents--spoke for itself.
Past champions, undefeated up and comers...things were primed for a great night of wrestling. Tickets had sold out days before the show at a rate almost unheard of for a house show put on by a brand new promotions. Around mid-day, fans were already flooding in for the action.
The Iron Viking was suiting up his armor, while in the neighboring dressing room, Scarface was sitting before the mirror, using the skills he'd learned in his days as a special effects wiz for movies. In spite of his name, he actually had a remarkably unmarked face for a man so long in the pro-wrestling business. The grizzled visage and disfigurement for which he was named were all just an illusion, though a darned good one. King Crimson, meanwhile, had laid down mats off in a corner of the backstage and was warming up with a training partner.
And then things went downhill. Fast. It all started with a gentle knock on Scarface's door.
"Hang on a second...you're gonna have to wait...I gotta put the finishing touches on this scar...or else I'm gonna have to switch my name to baby-face..."
The knock turned into a savage banging. And then the door gave out, revealing: the angry, powerful figure of Athena Fury, armed with a bo-stick and brass-knuckled fists. Without a word, she went to work on her rival with the bo-stick, using her speed and skill with the weapon to great advantage until he collapsed beneath the assault. Next up was The Viking, who was still fasening his helmet when he found himself suddenly fading out from a sleeper-hold applied by Athena Fury.
"Just one left..." Fury declared as she marched down the corridor to where King Crimson was warming up with his training partner. Taking to the air, she bowled over both men with a pair of flying knees before they even knew she was coming. King Crimson was out before he even hit the ground, but for good measure she gave him a few shots with the bo staff. Then she walked off, grabbed the bodies of Scarface and The Iron Viking and made a pile. She walked off again and this time came back with a referee.
"You guys said this was a hardcore match...so count the fall."
Reluctantly, the referee tolled the tree count, making Athena Fury the winner of a tournament that the paying fans didn't even get to see a single second of.
Athena Fury: Now the first thing you need to do, ref, is get a janitor and sweep these pieces of trash away. I've proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they don't belong in the same federation as me let alone the same tournament. King Crimson, when he wakes up, tell him he doesn't have what it takes anymore...tell him to grab all the liquor he can and start drowning his sorrows, because his career is over with. And as for Big Dusty, KnightMask and Madman...you guys need to understand that this face is the face of the next Warrior Wrestling champion. Move out of my way or I will move you myself. And it's gonna hurt.
Athena stomps off.
