The camera focus on the main stage as the pyros go off. As Chaos’ theme blasts across the arena, we see the fans cheer, holding up signs and jumping with excitement.
Mike: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Sunday nights hottest show on television ... IWA Chaos!! My name is Mike James, and joining me is Rocky Reynolds!
Rocky: We have one hell of a show tonight, Mike! Plenty of matches and lots of people speaking their minds!
Mike: Speaking of people who are going to speak their minds ... Here comes Artemis Eclipse!!
The lights begin going ballistic in a rainbow of colors as a figure comes out onto the stage. The bass is booming throughout the arena as the figure has his head down, hood over and is holding a kendo stick over his left shoulder. He flings his head back and throws his arms out at the same time.
As he brings his arms down he lets go a scream. He smiles through his mask and looks around as the crowd is on their feet. It seems like the audience is torn on whether to boo or cheer. As Artemis goes down the ramp he twirls his kendo around and slides under the bottom rope. He stands up and looks around. He pulls a mic out of his hoodie pocket and looks around a bit more. He goes to the corner and sits down. He taps the microphone to see if its on and smiles…
Artemis: Sorry, I had to see if it worked. I was watching last week when Divine came out here and made an ass out of himself. He talked about the same old tired shit over and over again. He wasted roughly 30 minutes of the show talking about things that have apparently been under his skin. Things that I said that really ticked him off.
I said a lot of things about a lot of people. Do I regret any of it? No. Under all the circumstances that were going on when I did say those things, I was hurt. Hurt that my friends got hurt and hurt that people would go behind my friends back and do things without manning up and doing what they were supposed to do.
THAT is what got me upset. There’s not too many people in this world I can call a friend but, when he got hurt not once but twice, it was my duty to say what he couldn't I have come a long way since then though. I have been doing many things to keep busy. Including helping form #teamfuckit… which is one of the best stables ever formed by the way. And I’ve also just been going onto other peoples shows whenever I feel like it just to make a mess of their situation.
What people fail to remember… and by people I mean Divine, Kyojin and VHX is, I’m not bitter…. No, no, no. I’m FAR from it. I’m outspoken. I will talk about whatever and whoever I want at any given time. I’m not known for biting my tongue and I won’t now. But, does that mean that I HAVE to come out here and shoot from the hip? No. I’m actually going to do the opposite of what everyone thinks I’m going to do.
You all thought I was going to waltz down that ramp and talk as much shit as possible. Talk about undeserved title opportunities, pulling triggers on talent, anything… you thought I was going to blaze my guns and just not give a fuck. Well, the simple fact of the matter is this… I don’t need to.
All of these people that come out here and “shoot” all the time are making it lose its specialness when it truly needs to happen. You fans are smart to our business now. You know that a lot of what’s printed on the dirsheets are half right. There’s a lot of backstabbing that goes on behind those curtains. A lot of people who want spots. Who want the limelight. Who are completely jealous of where certain individuals are in their station in life.
Me on the other hand? I’m happy being on the top. I’m happy in the middle-card, a curtain jerker… whatever you decide to put me as. I will consistently put on the best fucking show win, lose or draw. Admit it or not I am and will continue to be the epitome of this business. I don’t need Championships to prove how big my dick is. I don’t need the head of some company telling me its my time to shine because I sell merchandise. I’m Artemis Eclipse. I’m the best thing going in the world right now and at Last Resort Chris Divine will remember what its like to “Ship Up To Boston”. Bank on it. Bitch.
Artemis drops the mic and winks as the cameras pan over to the announcers.
Mike: What a powerful speech from Artemis Eclipse. He has come to the IWA to make sure we know just who the hell he is. What an awesome start to the show.
Rocky: You're damn right, Mike, and that is what I like about him.
Mike: Anyway, we are going to take a short break and then we will see Chris Diamond take on the infamous Killa!
