*Scene: GPW's sorta-unused interview pit. There's no handy-dandy reporter here to guide things along and ask questions of various natures of irritability, just GPW competitor/star/wrestler/superstar ZERO, sitting in a handily placed folding chair, talking to the camera. As for what's the topic of conversation is now?.......* ZERO: He beat me. No shenanigans or anything, no questionable tactics were employed; Daniel Shine was the better man in that match. I'll applaud him for that, and someday, in the unlikely scenario that his ego deflates enough to allow him to act more or less like a normal man, I hope he could return the favor. Even though I lost, I'm not ashamed of it. I'm not particularly well-known for mastery of obscure and intricate holds, and yet I pushed one of the most technically gifted wrestlers of the past decade to his limit for almost twenty minutes straight. By doing so, I accomplished all I needed to accomplish: I made the World Champion doubt himself. Not by much, and I'm sure he's gonna bleat on about how his win was inevitable and how he has me figured out, but somewhere in the inner regions of his mind....eh, turns out he's not that confident after all. *Enough reminiscing about the events of two weeks ago, onto tonight's fun action.* ZERO: Now, onto more pressing issues: House Midnight. I actually understand where they're coming from, or, rather I THINK I do. They're tired of their collective lot as wrestlers. Talented. Relatable. Overlooked. Overshadowed. Failure to live up to hype. Any of this sound familiar? *Well....DOES IT?* ZERO: Though so. Looks awfully like my story, doesn't it? A promising competitor, saddled down by factors somewhat out of their control, not QUITE the star they could be....fair enough, I understand. Chris and Adam, I understand that you've both got more famous relatives. And Vinny, I'm surprised you're not even more fucked up, considering your own background. However, there's a right way and a wrong way to improve your standing in life. Sit in a circle, mope about how you've been screwed over repeatedly, rehash the ever-original dark cult, do some oogy-boogie theatrics, whatever works best in the short term..... ...or, if you three actually had some sense, WATCH ME. Do what I've been doing ever since coming back from my nearly year-long hiatus. Admit you've failed. Admit you need to improve. Pull yourselves up from the ground, grow a pair, learn where you've went wrong, and try to avoid what derailed your careers in the past. Maybe, and this is a big maybe.....maybe by doing so, you WON'T lose relevance after the shock and awe of your whole getup wears off. Improve yourselves through actually putting some work into it, and the attention you three want so bad'll actually hang around. Chambers is a prime example of what I'm talking about. Look where he's at now, he's a major attraction wherever he wrestles, he's the kinda competitor I'd love to be like soon....nowhere as agile as he is, but still, the sentiment's the same. Brad? He's quite frankly an unknown in this. But, I admire how he didn't pull an Archknight and leap straight into the major leagues, instead choosing to gut it out on the independent circuit and learn as much as possible before transitioning into a big-time company. Either way the fans vote, the end result should be the same: Three men who earned their position in this sport through hard effort will triumph. *And LEEDLELEEDLELEE, as ZERO walks out of frame, we go off to do something else.* ----------------------- OOC:Was gonna get this up yesterday, but was too nauseous to string it all together. Still kinda out of it now actually, so it might be a bit rambly anyway.
