Life, The Universe, and Everything
The days grow longer as we once again reach the beginning, the Genesis. All roads now lead to Munich, where for the fourth time in history, the greats of the wrestling industry will be there. Troy Douglas wants to be there, to take the next step in the New Revolution of his career, the wrestling business, and the world. But for now, there's a stop off in Spain, with a new X-perience waiting for him in Barcelona. It's now time for a renegade to take on a false idol, a "Messiah" named Dallas Winston. In Spain, the New Revolution continues.
Barcelona, Spain, 11:33 PM...
Troy Douglas sits in an empty corner of an otherwise noisy bar in the center of Barcelona. He has an imported Belgian beer in his right hand, a half eaten plate of tapas sits on a small table to his left. An old, American style jukebox is to his right, playing Bruce Springsteen's "Into the Fire". Ironic, isn't it, because the man sitting next to the jukebox is about to step right into the fire for one of the defining moments of his career. Troy sits, staring into space like a man focused on one goal, to turn his career around. He acknowledges the camera, puts his now half-full glass on the table, and begins to speak his mind.
TD: "Dallas. I've seen your little 'Public Service Announcements' recently and I must say, I'm impressed. It looks to me like you believe that GXW's best can't stand up to the SCW pedigree of 'The Messiah'. You've singled out a select few: Rob Sampson, Dan Ryan, Boogie Smallz, Kevin Powers, the list goes on and on. You seem to think that just because you've eeked out a couple of W's here in the big leagues that you have the right to come out on international television and deface the greatest wrestling organization on the face of this planet."
Troy finishes his beer, walks over to a spot in the bar with less noise pollution. He does this deliberately, as if to ensure that Dallas Winston will clearly hear his next point.
TD: "Let me tell you a little something about Global Xtreme Wrestling, Mr. Winston. Let me tell you a story about the greatest company around and about the people who work for it. You wanted Dan Ryan, Kevin Powers, and Rob Sampson, I've gotta say Dallas, you're way out of your league. You're looking at a man whose taken those three to their breaking points. Dan Ryan barely escaped Madison Square Garden with the World Title when he faced me. Kevin Powers needed a chair shot from his lady friend AND the Kiss the Canvas to put me down. Rob Sampson, I nearly killed him with a steel chair when we faced off. Dallas Winston, you're small potatoes compared to those three legends.
"Dallas, when you issued your challenge, you asked for someone who best represents what GXW stands for, so you could show how good your delusional self is. You wanted me, you got me. You wanted GXW at it's very best, you have in front of you the very definition of what GXW is. I've had four knee surgeries and three concussions, and you know what, I'm still F***ing standing! My father and the love of my life were both just murdered, and you know what, I'm still f***ing standing! I've been beaten on, bruised, and battered by just about every man in this company, and you know what, I'm still f***ing standing! Face it Winston, no matter what arsenal you may throw at me this coming X-perience, no matter how hard you try and take down the New Revolution, you know what, I'll still be f***ing standing! I live by one mantra, never go down, never give up, always stay on top. I've made too many promises to too many lost people to give up now. I won't be derailed by any two-bit, never earned a cent by his own merits, psychologically deranged 'Messiah'. No, this time I'm heading straight for the top, and I won't leave anyone else standing. It's my turn this time, my time to shine. There won't be any more 'almost' or 'nearly' for me anymore. It starts with you Dallas. Let's see if you're still standing after X-perience. I know I will."
