Game. Set. Match. Burritto.
VOICE: "And then he arrived, the man that became nothing more than a relic of the past. He was determined to prove he was still worth his prize in life, rather he was worthless. He had failed to follow his path and thus would come into a crash course with fate, and fate had much bigger plans against him, plans that were unavoidable."
Taco Burrito King Belmont and Harlem Ave. Chicago, Illinois, the home of Adrian Willard and where all his promotions take place. Adrian is sitting on a bench outside as a local CTA drives by, people board it, people ext it. This burrito joint is packed, a bright sunny warm Chciago day, the line wraps around the restaurant. However it si only Adrian we see in this camera shot, no Freak in sight.
WILLARD: "This is exactly what I was talking about, Cameron, and excuse me for being so blunt and so very straight forward. I suppose some men can't hack the truth, you being one of these vision lost souls, Cameron. It screams in the very first sentences you utter, Cameron, that attitude that needs adjustment, that swagger I mentioned. You stroke your ego claiming to have had the best matches once again. Yet, you whine and you moan on the concept you will step in that ring with me, for a lesson of violence you won't forget. Now, I am by no means downgrading myself but simple concept of any wrestling business is taking the best and uplifting them. However, Cameron, by your ideology, by your falsehoods, and ego, you are the "best" and are now downgraded? What logical sense does that make, sir?"
The line for the burrito joint runs across the building, we can finally see Freak in the line agitated smoking a cigarette motioning to hurry up.
WILLARD: "No, no, Cameron this is not how wrestling works. You, sir, are in a dream land, a place where you believe you are some kind of superb superstar, you were Cameron, you were. No longer though, and this moment is not about you, all eyes are not set on you. You have become just a simple whisper in the wind. Yet, you fall short on the understanding of this, you lack the vision, you lack the path. You would rather rip words from Fifty Cent, rather state we are not friends, partners, or buddies. You are absolutely correct, Cameron, friends don't set a goal to make a man pay for his transgressions through pain, partners don't seek to destroy a man limb by limb to simply prove a point to Shawn Hart, buddies don't look at each other with disgust. These are all things that ignite the engine in my brain, things you will witness first hand."
FREAK (in the distance): "Come on! Hurry the f-ck up.this sh-t is moving slower than Cameron Cruise trying to chain wrestle! Let's go!"
WILLARD: "No, Cameron, as far as I am concerned, I do know you all too well. I know your methods, your ideas, the very thoughts that click in that repetitive head of yours, and it is no wonder Erik Black claimed checkmate on you, Cameron. You show zero room for improvement, you hit your peak, and this is where the mountain begins to crumble to a hill. That hill is not a simple walk through the park Cameron, but you are no Mount Everest, I will conquer you."
FREAK (in the distance): "I want a burrito god damn it.hey baby.want my burrito, f-cking stuff it in you."
WILLARD: "As for Shawn Hart, I took initiative Cameron, something you haven't done in months, I set a goal, I even told Shawn of that goal, I went out and accomplished it. Is the task over? No, Cameron, it has just begun, that is step one in a long process to strip Hart of that very title around his pitiful waist. In that path I will face people such as yourself, I will go against a man here and a man there, all tasks needed to be completed, but what, as of late, have you done in accomplishing your goals here in New Era? Have a belt stripped from you by a man who smokes pot? Bravo Cameron, you have improved, at least that John Doe fellow was able to come out even with the drug smoking champion and he can't even remember who he is any more. What's next, you going to win the tag team belts by getting carried by Problem Child.oh.wait."
The line moves up just a tad as Freak slams his cigarette butt on the ground, Adrian shakes his head a bit with laughter
WILLARD: "Yes Cameron how the odds have turned against your favor. Now, where does that all turn to, Cameron? Where does it all lead, well other than the fact I am a symbol, you just lack to see it, it leads to you having the same fate as Shawn. You will be another man in the line of a prophecy, of a legend. I have become symbol due to the fact I fulfill the prophecies that I envision. Something others, like yourself, lack to do. Something the fans of New Era, lack to appreciate. Sooner or later they will see the errors of their judgment; sooner or later you will wake from your misguided principles, until then you are the rat and I am the poison, Cameron."
FREAK (in the distance): "Are you kidding me?! How many spics does it take to cook some f-cking burritos?!"
WILLARD: "I am not blind to the fact, Cameron, that you have wrestled many champions in your career, but that is not the issue right now. What is occurring at the moment is that the Cameron Cruise of old is not the Cameron Cruise of now. The Cruise of now would rather lose to a man that is high on mind altering drugs than go that extra mile to secure victory, because of his ego, and when he fails at securing victory suddenly he washes it away. Oh he earned my respect now that he bested me, (sarcastic) ha, ha, ha. Please Cameron, end the little façade. Frankly, Cameron, it is just simply..pathetic. No mission is hopeless, no prophecy I envision will go unfinished, you are just a non-believer, and I am going to radically change that."
Freak finally enters the restaurant to order.
WILLARD: "Maybe you will accept it or maybe you will say it was a fluke, who knows Cameron, but when I do best you in that ring, and I will best you in that ring, remember that it was a prophecy, it was a moment in my path and you are not the final ending. There is a bigger, greater cause than simply Cameron Cruise. But what I say Cameron, I do, unlike you, I keep my word of victory, unlike you, I do have an agenda, and unlike you Cameron, I will succeed in it. Now, you can hold on to what little hope you have Cameron, the idea that saying one thing is different than doing, in your life, that is true. However, in my life I have a history of doing what I say, accomplishing what I choose to accomplish. That's how you become and NCAA national champion, what athletic sport have you bested in Cameron? Professional wrestling? Bravo, champ, you are really shinning, I am faster than you, stronger than you, more mentally prepared than you, Cameron. I will beat you and break you, go back to kicking back a beer and watching some baseball."
WILLARD: "As far as your respect goes, Cameron, I don't want the respect of a hack, of some discarded figure of the past. No, Cameron, your respect means nothing to me, having Cameron Cruise's respect doesn't mean anything in this industry. You are starting to become a figment of every ones imagination. The problem is, you think your respect is earned, that Erik Black had to go beyond to get to your self created level. Wrong Cameron, you dropped your standards, you went from A-Class wrestler to C-Class wrestler, you struggled with John Doe, and you lost to Erik Black, and I am going to open your eyes to that fact."
WILLARD: "You may see me as some crazy street corner messiah screaming that the end of times is near, but sadly it is. Now, what I am saying, Cameron, is it isn't going to be twenty-twelve when I put Hart down, but the end of his time is near as champion. Now, trail off and go back to being a tag team champion, go back to being carried by Problem Child and searching for some small hope of fame. Go dormant even Cameron, take a vacation, lord knows you will need the "R and R" after I instill a Higher Vision in your life."
Freak comes on scene with two burritos and hands one to Adrian, he says thank you as he begins to un wrap his.
FREAK: "F-cking line was longer than a n-ggas d-ck man, here's your burrito brother. Ah sh-t, New Era crew up in this b-tch! F-ck they here for, the ladies probably requested to see my hot ass on the television."
WILLARD: "Cameron, reality, what you perceive as reality, it is about to be redesigned entirely."
FREAK: "Ah, Cameron Cruise again! Yo Cameron, we gonna make you realize what the f-ck this sh-t is all about holmes, you gonna be more f-cked up than that b-tch Mercedes, and trust me she is a good f-ck man."
WILLARD: "Raucous, it is your path to fall victim to me, it is your destiny, Cameron, and you can not escape it."
FREAK: "Can't run, can't hide, hommie, it's gonna happen, it will happen, and there ain't a god damn thing ya can do about it."
WILLARD: "What will happen at Raucous is what I have warned you about, Cameron, do not be like Shawn Hart and not heed my warning, do not be a fool and believe you are going to out wrestle me, that you are greater athlete than I, don't be.stupid..
FREAK: "Don't be like my ex wife, just accept what the f-ck is gonna happen yo."
WILLARD: "Victory is in my favor Cameron.it's been..envisioned."
FREAK: "AND WE DON'T GIVE A REALITY CHECKING F-CK IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT!!!"
