"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to International Massacre. We're LIVE in Tokyo, Japan. Yōkoso, Maddog!"
Mark says this with an English-to-Japanese translation book out in front of him.
"Gesundheit...anyway, welcome! If you're just joining us, you saw the debut of Mr. Smiley just moments ago. He's one interesting character, if you ask me."
"Well, it's always good to see a fresh face in the XWA- what the hell?"
"Never heard that theme before..."
Yes, this theme is all to new to the Japanese fans and the commentators of XWA: Massacre. The instrumental continues until we here a scream blare out from the speakers. As soon as the scream is heard, fire explodes from the stage.
The fans cheer at the sight of the pyrotechnics, but the cheers only get louder at the sight of the man who comes out from under the titantron....
"Is that....OH MY GOD! IT IS!"
The man who comes out to a positive ovation is none other than "The Demolitionist" Drake Dysfunction, who has not been seen in an XWA arena in quite a while. He stands at the top of the ramp looking at the sea of fans that are here on this night of surprises...but what a surprise this is.
"What a moment this is! Drake Dysfunction is here in TOKYO!"
Drake makes his way down the ramp and towards the ring to the beat of his new theme music. The man wears an XWA t-shirt that will be further described when he's in the ring. In the meantime, he also wears blue jeans and black shoes. Sporting shades and, of course, a beanie to cover the hair that he's grown since departing, he makes his way up the steel steps and walks across the ring apron, stoppping and positioning himself in the center, looking at the fans in attendance. They raise their fists in approval of the surprising return. Drake then steps through the ropes and stands in the center of the ring. Outstretching his hands to either side of him, he mouths the words "ain't this a surprise," of course talking about the fact that he returned. He then walks over to the ropes facing the announce table and receives a mic from Hana Ramirez. Having received the mic, he walks back to the center of the ring as his music fades out. The music is replaced by a thunderous ovation.
"Thank you, thank you..."
"Welcome Back" chants begin to form around the venue, preventing Drake from continuing.
"Thank you very much...it's great to be back."
The cheering continues until....
"Now then, I'd like to thank you all for the warm welcome. It's great to be back here in the company that made me, it's great to be back in front of all of you wonderful fans and it's great to be in JAPAN!"
A cheap pop for mentioning their hometown.
"Yes, Japan. This is a first-time-ever for XWA: Massacre and a first time for me. However, tonight is not the first time I face this my opponent for tonight...and for those of you wondering, yes, I'm in action tonight..."
The fans pop for that!
"Yes, I'm in action tonight against none other than the current reigning XWA Hardcore Champion..."
But the fans don't even let him finish as they begin booing at the mention of the "XWA Hardcore Champion."
Even though his voice was somewhat shrouded by the booing, he still managed to get the words out. The fans soon cease from their jeering.
"I guess whatever happens, I can't seem to stay away from Trace. Since my leaving, nothing has changed. He's still the same self-centered, cocky, egotistical bastard of a champion XWA has ever had, and I'm sure all of you can agree. But tonight is different. Tonight, the title isn't on the line and the last time I was in the ring with him, I was fighting for his championship. Though I came out on the losing end along with Chris Novak, I still feel that it was the most important match of my career. Tonight, we're fighting again for the first time in Tokyo, Japan. Whether I win or lose in front of you, I know and he knows that I'm never far away. Tonight, I step in the ring with him again and look to do what I failed to do against him: win."
The fans in attendance give a positive ovation as they see the Drake's confidence isn't waning.
"With that said, I'll see you Drake-a-holics later tonight when I step in the ring with Trace Demon."
He drops the mic and goes to leave the ring until...
(This is an open promo, so if anyone wants to come out, now's the time. I'm looking to start a story line.)
