FADE IN: PULSAR IS STANDING LINE AT AN AIRPORT, WEARING A BLACK TSHIRT AND JEANS AND THONGS (FLIP-FLOPS), TURNS TO THE CAMERA AND LIFTS HIS SUNGLASSES UP FROM HIS FACE TO HIS HEAD.
PULSAR: Alright everyone can relax, in... (LOOKS DOWN AT HIS WATCH) well... it was supposed to be 45 minutes ago, but lets not get into that. Soon.. I will be on my way to Foxboro for the biggest event on the WFW calender the Superbowl of Wrestling 3.
You see, I thought I deserved a little break, so I approached WFW management about having a bit of a holiday. And so, after only missing one show in the last 18 months, they gladly agreed. But (POINTS TO THE CAMERA) you people at home, your a smart bunch, I received alot of emails from fans that were concerned that because of the time off I was having that the momentum and focus that I took into Great Expextations would be lost and wasted. C'mon now, where's the faith... (PULSAR LAUGHS) dont worry guys, there was a real good reason for such focus, a reason that wasnt forgotten because of a minor setback from those two heros that couldnt get the job done by themselves, a reason that was a promise to someone special.
Now the Superbowl of Wrestling can normally be seen as the culmination of a life times work, but it would seem that this match takes on a significance because of the two beginnings that will be taking place. I will be starting on a path back up the WFW ranks to what I have previously acheived, and more. The more being the ultimate prize, of course.
The second beginning comes in the form of a WFW career. Steven Shane... I heard about you appearance at the Road to Glory. And from all reports you are one cocky bastard. Sure you need confidence, but it sounds like your mouth has crossed a line. Noone has seen you, and you come to Worlds Finest Wrestling and pay out on the champions of this company... nah-ah (SHAKES HIS HEAD).
PULSAR WALKS OVER TO THE COUNTER, HAS A BRIEF CHAT WITH THE WOMAN BEHIND IT AND WALKS BACK TO FACE THE CAMERA.
PULSAR: In two hours I leave for Foxboro, and I expect I'll be hearing about some smart arse talking crap, but you know what Shane... that doesnt have to happen. I've got my own reasons for winning this match, far more important than any of your own ambitions I would imagine. So dont piss me off... cause there is a lot of difference between a victory and a beat down. Cue the excitement.
We see Steven Shane walking through the streets of Boston. His black leather jacket covers his upper body while a pair Nautica jeans are all that cover his lower half. His red face emits a cloud of breath as he huffs into the sky. He then gives a smile to the camera as he begins.
Shane: It’s really quite fitting, isn’t it?
Here we are in what World’s Finest Wrestling has determined to be the grandest stage of all, and we’re going to kick it off with a bang by having Steven Shane’s in-ring debut.
Call me crazy, but I’d say that is nothing short of excellent marketing if you ask me.
There’s no better way to get the fans amped and out of their seats quicker than a Steven Shane match. So why not get their adrenaline going from the start? They’ll stay glued to the action after something like that.
Even if I do have to carry some guy who thinks he’s some sort of superstar for only missing one show in 18 months.
A man who doesn’t seem to care anything about history.
A man who would rather just shoot off his mouth like he’s some sort of megastar that Steven Shane should even consider wasting his time trying to figure out a strategy to defeat him.
A man who doesn’t even know how to get a decent travel agent to book flights for him that might actually get him where he needs to go on time.
My only hope is that he is smart enough to realize that he needs to raise an arm to catch a cab to Gillette Stadium so I can show him a thing or two about more than just professional wrestling.
Shane chuckles as his breath slowly dissolves into the air. He shakes his head as he continues on.
Shane: Maybe you missed my introduction to WFW.
Or, quite possibly, you just flat out scratched your head after I used such big words and phrases like ‘Steven Shane is here in WFW.’
After listening to your incessant ramble about your jam-packed work schedule and terrible travel accommodations, I wouldn’t put option number two past you.
You see, Pulsar, this amazing work rate that you think you have isn’t really quite that impressive when you string something together like some of the bigger names around this industry.
Hell, I’m no legend yet, but I’ve been doing this damn thing for three years and haven’t missed a show.
I’ve defended tag team titles on a weekly basis.
I’ve made singles titles more popular on free TV than Seinfeld reruns.
Showing up to work everyday for 18 months is nothing in this industry, junior.
Steven Shane isn’t well-known in this company by many of the superstars here.
But the ones that do know me are the ones that you wish you could be one day. I don’t work with the B-list unless I need to debut my talents on some second-class loser who thinks his 18 month string of matches are some great feat.
Dan Ryan, Joey Melton, Cameron Cruise…
They’ve all seen my work, and they know what a force I’ve already been in other places.
It’s only a matter of time before each and every WFW star gets to see just what Steven Shane brings to the table and they too learn to respect the Sensation that is Steven Shane.
It all starts with you at the biggest stage the company has to offer, Pulsar.
Once these people see what a draw that a man like Steven Shane is, there won’t be any doubt that the Mansons and the Reds will be taking notice and seeing where Steven Shane is on the card.
And that’s simply because they want to watch their backs and make sure that I’m not gaining on them too fast. They’ve secured their spots, but they will soon know that those spots are no longer safe while Steven Shane’s around.
Shane finally reaches his destination and stops. He turns toward the camera and we can fully see the smirk on his face.
Shane: You can call if cockiness if you want, Pulsy.
But if you ask me, cockiness is a trait that people who don’t have talent use to make themselves appear more formidable.
Confidence, on the other hand, is a trait used to warn people like Pulsar of the beating they are about to receive once they actually step foot into the squared circle with a highly talented act like Steven Shane.
I “paid out” on the champions of this company because I know that I’ll soon be there competing with them while you still try to resurrect a career that was never that great to start with.
You told me you didn’t want me to piss you off, but the fact of the matter is that you’ve already done that with me.
As far as I’m concerned, anything is fair game from here to me having my hand raised in the middle of that ring.
If you want to get pissed off, feel free.
Like the great philosophers always say though, it’s better to be pissed off than pissed on.
Shane gives a smile as he turns and enters the door while the camera fades out.
FADE IN: PULSAR IS STANDING IN FRONT OF A WFW SUPERBOWL OF WRESTLING BACKDROP, WEARING JEANS AND A WHITE TSHIRT. PULSAR LOOKS TO THE CAMERA WITH A SMALL GRIN ON HIS FACE, AND HANDS APOLOGETICALLY IN FRONT OF HIM.
PULSAR: Right now, I'd better apologise, I should of responded to Mr Shane's comments a while ago, but I sat back and had a think about it a little more. I thought to myself, what would this Steve Shane be thinking. Well, he did seem really pissed off after we last heard from him, and his most obvious reaction to my silence would be to think that he has done his job and scared me back into what ever little corner I came from.... But nah, I dont think that even he could be that stupid. In the WFW, you dont hide.. you face up. So, to big Steve-o, my absence of reply could only mean some sort of disrespect, add I would imagine would only be adding fuel to the fire, which is his already antagonised state.
PULSAR MOVES TO THE SIDE OF THE SHOT, TO SHOW THE ENITRE SUPERBOWL OF WRESTLING BANNER.
PULSAR: Shane, you and me, we're kicking off one of the biggest events of the year, it could may well turn out to be of the biggest events of all time... so lets make a bit of a fight out of it, watta ya think? C'mon man, its your debut and all lets make this a cracker. You bring that festering fire inside of you, I'll bring abit of a flame myself, and we'll make it hard to finish the show, cause we're gonna burn the house down. Sure I'm gonna win it, but the fans will love it all the same.
Steve Shane, get ready man, just f**kin get your arse ready, its game on and in the end... I'm afraid your just going to be another stepping stone and my path to the top, but at least youll have a great video to show your kids. Cue the excitement.
We find “Sensational” Steven Shane standing in the gorilla position as he bounces back forth preparing for his debut match in WFW. He notices the camera and stops bouncing as his robe continues to glisten in the light. He gives a smile as he speaks.
Shane: My dearest Pulsar…
It is really quite obvious that this upcoming match is my debut match here in World’s Finest Wrestling.
You see, after listening to your last bit of knowledge (which I anxiously awaited, even though it took forever), it is clear that Steven Shane only exists as an enigma in your brain.
Steven Shane is not one to just sit back and settle for blowing the roof off the building.
Don’t get me wrong, my job is to go out there and put on the best damn show that I can for those fans that pay for my salary.
Yet, at the same time, my ultimate goal is to rise to the highest of levels in this industry that I’m in.
And in order to do that, you’ve got to come out and show the people running this show that you’ve got what it takes to get to the top.
And that is very unfortunate for you, Pulsar. Because that is my exact situation right now.
I’ve come here to make a name for myself all across the FW circuit. And in order to do that here in WFW, I must get it all started with you.
Shane steps forward and piers into the camera.
Shane: But that’s only part of my drive to win this match tonight.
Because, quite honestly, you did a great job of pissing me off earlier, and now I’m ready to show you that nobody talks about Steven Shane like he’s some damn newbie that has no clue what this business is about.
All respect was thrown out of this match when you tried to downplay me talking about the Dan Ryans and Felix Reds of this industry.
It is with men like them that I will thrive and bring the WFW to its knees with fabulous performance after fabulous performance.
It is with men like Dan Ryan that I will blow each and every fan out of their seats as they watch on in awe of what we’re doing in that ring.
But with men like you, I have nothing. The competition is not there, nor will the anticipation and enthusiasm of the match.
The fans already know what’s coming, and Steven Shane being on the offensive all match long really leaves them with nothing to look forward to, other than another Steven Shane win.
But once I dispose of you and move on to bigger and better competition, it is then that your name will come up again.
The only problem is that it will simply be the answer of a trivia question.
A stage hand walks by and Shane quickly blurts at him.
Shane: You! This man was the first W in what has come to be known as the greatest legacy the WFW has ever seen.
The stage hand looks at Shane oddly for a moment before replying simply.
SH: Who is Pulsar?
Shane quickly gives a clap.
Shane: Great job my friend. We’ve got some lovely partying gifts for you.
See that, Pulsar?
Your legacy has already begun as the best damn sports entertainment trivia question answer.
