Furio
Pegasus! My friend! The best General Manager around since Wright!
I'm gonna need you to do something for me.
So, you know, the main event is about to start, right?
Pegasus
Hmmm? What about it?
Furio
I just received word from Sminem, we have a new rule!
Any and all Karate moves and strikes have been banned immediately.
If you're caught doing any of them, you'll be fired and blacklisted from the industry on the spot!
I'm gonna need you to tell the guys in the back about it. Specifically, Akasaka. He will be interested to know that.
From now on, we'll only allow martial arts made for REAL men. Like whatever Reiji does!
It still wasn't enough to beat me, though! Hahahaha!
Well, I'll be going now. Hoping for a good show!
Pegasus
(...Lying about Sminem again. How slimy.)
...Wait...
...Aha... Ahahahaha!
What has been taking me so long?
He's doing to Akasaka exactly what I should be doing with him!
Have I lost my touch? I've known this from the beginning.
You don't need to target your opponent directly. Instead, you can just take the routes around him.
This way, sooner or later, he shall submit.
So... I shouldn't go for Furio directly, if it risks the well-being of the company Erwin needs to return to.
...Ahhh, of course. I see it now. I see who I should target!
Let's play the game, Furio-boy...

Lore 2[edit | edit source]

Bolo
Bro, that last one was rough!
I'm pretty banged up here, might need to take the week off or something.
But, at the end of the day, I gave him a taste of the big apple!
Battler
...Good job, I guess?
Either way, what was up with Akasaka there?
Isn't he known for his Karate? He didn't even use it once!
And it's not like he didn't have the opportunity to do so!
Bolo
I think I overheard Furio talking to the GM earlier, and he might've been up to something fishy.
I'm still not sure what it's about, really, but it gives me the wrong vibes, y'know?
Maybe I should ask Akasaka himself about it.
But, at the end of the day, I had to retain my title, didn't I?
I'm a fighting champion, so I couldn't have pity on him or anything.
He still put up a hell of a fight, though.
Anyway, don't you have a qualifying match coming up?
Battler
Yeah, actually! The match! It's about to start!
I'm up against my grandpa in the qualifiers.
Old man said I could keep this cape he gifted me if I beat him. Let's hope I do, it looks really cool!
Bolo
Yeah. Bet the chicks would be all over you.
Battler
At the same time, imagine what they'd think if I lost to someone of that age?!
Bolo
Hahaha, that's a risk you gotta face.
But I bet you're gonna give him a taste of the blue truth!
What do you think? Doesn't that sound like a cool catchphrase?! Would go hand-in-hand with mine!
Battler
...I'll pass. Beatrice would never take me seriously if I said that!
Bolo
Okay, better yet, rename your signature to "Shining Brick". People would go insane!
Battler
Oh, I bet they would, Bolo. I bet they would.
Bolo
I mean, wouldn't that little sis of yours want to have some cool merch of her brother to show off?
Battler
Look at that, my match is starting! Sorry, haha, I'll see you later!
Bolo
Don't forget about my genius ideas!
Battler
...
(To be fair, Ange would probably wear it...)

Lore 3[edit | edit source]

Saihara
...Is he coming back anytime soon?
Leon
Dunno. My hangover is starting to act up.
Saihara
Hangover? But you haven't had a drink in a while, have you? I'd smell it otherwise.
Leon
That's exactly why.
Saihara
...Your body works in mysterious ways.
Hagakure
Sorry for the wait, dudes.
I've got your opponents over here.
Please welcome... The Mystery Masters!
Saihara
M-Mystery Masters?!! B-But... That's my team!
Hagakure
Uhhh, I don't know what you're talking about, bro.
Here they are!
Saihara
...
What?
Leon
Oohhh... I think I get it...
Hagakure
There's nothing to "get", dudes. Just get to the ring.
Jah wants the two of you to be done with your training so me and him can have some alone time, y'know?
...I need a smoke.

Lore 4[edit | edit source]

Furio
So, I know General Manager Pegasus might not be the best at explaining things...
And that's why I'm here! Because I always have the best for the public in mind!
I'll make things more clear when it comes to next week's TFR vs BCW tournament.
First of all, it will work based in a points system.
There will be multiple 1v1 matches, worth one point each.
Alongside that, we will have two 2v2 matches, one 3v3, and one 4v4.
Those will work on elimination rules. And each elimination is worth a point.
So, let's give away a spoiler and say team TFR eliminates all four BCW competitors in the 4v4 without losing anyone.
That's a 4-0. Worth 4 points.
If we had 3 competitors left, however, it'd be worth 3 points. And so it goes...
Anyway, we made a few picks last week, as you've seen.
However, we only showed those that were automatically qualified for the tournament itself.
We also selected people who have automatically qualified for phase two, which is taking place tonight.
So, let's make it public. Automatically qualified for phase two, and one match away from making it to the tournament are...
Arikado Genya, Ushiromiya Battler, Ushiromiya Kinzo, Carlos, Kido Reiji, and Fred Jones!
Former champions will also get a free pass to round 2.
Good luck to all of them! And for TFR...
We don't need luck. We are simply superior. Enjoy the show!

Promo[edit | edit source]

Arikado Genya
Hey, WWE Universe, you guys know that I try to keep a level head, but I want to talk to you about something that's really been grinding my gears since it started. It takes a lot to get me riled up, but, once this tea kettle starts whistling, there's no cooling me down.
You know, there's a guy who I'm surprised to hear has an axe to grind with me! I was actually concerned for him when we first met. I tried to help him! The first time I saw him I told him about the terrible thing he had growing out of his neck. Then, I realized it was his head!
You know what? I'm a reasonable guy. So, let's hear him out, huh? MASTEMA, you want to have your moment? Then, come on out.
Mastema
You know, I think we get the point. I mean, he could sit there and keep on going...but, we've all heard enough, huh? Is there anyone here who can stand any more?
Arikado Genya
Do you think interrupting me is going to make you significant around here? Let me tell you, junior, the only thing interrupting me is going to do is piss me off, and you don't want to see me pissed off. Now, take a walk and let me get back to what I was saying.
Mastema
Watching you run your mouth like that reminds me of one of those Japanese monster movies they dub into English. You know, their mouths are moving but the words coming out of them don't match. That's pretty much your career in a nutshell. You talk about achieving greatness, then constantly disappoint.
Arikado Genya
The only disappointment around here is you. You've been trying to ride in the shadow of my greatness since you showed up here. The sad fact is that my shadow has more talent than you'll ever have. Now that's disappointing.
Mastema
I came out here to do exactly what I do every other night of the week and that's wrestle. But a match with you is special. I want everyone here to know I'm better than you are. I want them to see you for the sniveling cheat you truly are. I want a match with you where you won't be able to escape from me or the WWE Universe.
Arikado Genya
I don't know if you realize this, but it takes more than a big mouth to make it in WWE. And, while you might have the biggest mouth on the block, you don't have what it takes to go the distance. So, why don't you go backstage and cool off?
Mastema
There's something in the air tonight, guys. Can you smell it? Smells like...pure, unadulterated monkey crap. And, it's coming from him...that walking pile of fecal matter. You seriously need to do an odor check before coming out here and subjecting these poor fans to your putrid stench.
Arikado Genya
I don't smell anything. Do you people smell anything? I smell failure, because that's exactly what you are. You're nothing but a rotten, stinking failure. So, you can say all the jokes you want. The real joke is you'll never amount to anything.
Mastema
I'm pretty sure the WWE Universe wants to see the two of us face one another in this ring. Isn't that right? You see, when you're as good at what you do as I am, you know exactly what's best for business. Right now, what's best for business is me throwing you around this ring like a rag doll, and giving these fans something they've wanted to see for a long time: you shutting the hell up.

Extra
Another loss... Am I even gonna get booked anymore?
I-I can't give up, though! I need to make a name for myself!
And he... He doesn't even recognize me, does he?
Seems like no one does nowadays. I passed by him multiple times backstage and didn't even get a "Hi, how are you doing?"
...Wait...
That's the guy that's been bothering Red, isn't he?
Maybe I could challenge him! Maybe I could grab a win, and also do her a favor in the meantime!
That's it, I'm going!
Shinguji
Kukukuku... Now where could she be?
Extra
Hey, I'm sorry, but could you listen to me for a moment?
Shinguji
Mmmmm? What is this I am hearing? Someone is apologizing...
Extra
I came to challenge you to a match! A honorable one! If I win, you leave Red alone!
Shinguji
Interesting... With every step I take, an extra set of footsteps follows me.
Extra
Stop ignoring me! Are you listening?!
Shinguji
Ah, could it be? A spirit? One of my sister's friends has come to visit?
Extra
I'm not a spirit! What the hell do I have to do for you to pay attention to me?!
Shinguji
Let's see if it follows me when I close the door to this room.
Extra
Aw! Aw! AWWW! That hit me square in the face!
Shinguji
...It's going "Au au au". It's indeed a spirit, and it's still here...
But... So are you...
???
Tre? Was that you?
Red
I thought I heard Tre's voice...
But it's you instead. State your business already!
Shinguji
A spirit has been following me. I thought we could make contact with it through a seance.
Thankfully, The salt circle has already been set up. Would you help me with it? Kukukuku...
Red
How about I beat you up right now instead?! Leave me alone, you creep!
Shinguji
Oh, so we will do it this way, then? Interesting...

Apollo
Another week, and still no news on the case.
I wonder where Micah has been.
I mean, I'm glad he hasn't attacked anyone in a while. That's a good thing, but...
Something tells me I NEED to know more about him. Besides the fact he's a known backstage attacker, that is.
Bevi
...Heh...
Sometimes not knowing is for the best, when you aren't capable of handling the truth.
Ignorance is bliss, so do they say...

Bevi takes a bite of his apple and walks away.

Apollo
...WHAT?
The hell is up with that guy?
Anyway, are you ready for our match?
Amami
Yep. I've never felt better.
Now, I wonder where that shot put ball I put on the vents went...
Never heard of it again.
Apollo
I sure hope nobody got hurt because of something that dumb...
Moving on, we're gonna be up in a bit. Where is Beatrice?
Amami
I haven't seen her at all...
Wait a second, what is this letter?
Apollo
It has that one-winged eagle logo in it. Interesting.
Seems like she was the one to leave it behind, too.
Amami
Just what is inside? Should we look at it?
Apollo
Why do you even ask? Of course. We're about to know.
Amami
...
Apollo
HUUUUUUUUUH?!!!
Amami
Jesus, man, calm down!
Apollo
Where did that come from?!!
Amami
...The letter. It's blank, too.
Apollo
Oh. Right.
Wait, WHAT?!!
Amami
She sure works in mysterious ways...

Bolo
Hey, man, great match we had, huh?!
Akasaka
...Yeah. Good one. Shame about the Karate ban.
I think I could've put up a better fight if not for that.
Bolo
So it really is true, huh?
Man, that Furio guy is just...
I wanna give him a taste of the big apple myself!
I'd love to see if he'd do this kind of stuff after taking a Bushwick Brick!
Akasaka
It was shady, wasn't it?
All that TFR management has been doing... I'd expect this kind of things from the Bogdanoffs...
But I think I understand now. If I won that title, I would get VIP access around here, right?
Bolo
Yeah! I get all the cool stuff and can even hang around the suits backstage!
Akasaka
So... They want to halt my investigation, huh? That must be it!
But that only fuels me further. I'll dig around to see if I can find out more.
Bolo
If you find out anything, let me know. See ya.
Akasaka
Yeah... See you...
...
...What about you, standing there?
...What's your business with me?
???
I come with a purpose.
The purpose of... Telling you the truth behind everything.
I hope you listen to me carefully.

Armstrong
I'm finally making it back, Jack!
Going over the hill once again, ain't I? And now, I've got the perfect story to go with it!
Losing to low-card scum makes for the perfect underdog story...
Now I just gotta go all out from here on!
The crowd eats it up! Climbing from the bottom to the top of the industry!
I won't have any problem being elected president if I keep going like this!
Raiden
...
Sorry, honey, what were you saying?
I was making an update.
Gotta have it running at full speed, y'know?
Rendering those muscles of yours... Takes quite a bit of memory.
Armstrong
Hah, I see I got you in a joking mood, huh, Jack?
Let's have some fun, then! It's been a long time coming!
You're gonna become the stepping stone to my ascension back to the top of the card!

Reigns
I came to have a talk, Mr. General Manager.
Furio
Oh, for sure, Roman! Anything for you!
Uh, I mean, I'm not the General Manager, just his assistant, y'know... Hahahah...
But, as I've said befor- I mean, uh, you can always count on me, you know?
You're a spectacular competitor, so I'll gladly help you anytime you want!
Reigns
I know you've got my back. That's why I'm here.
See, my tag partner, he just won't cut it anymore.
You saw it last week. He's been dragging me down.
He might be a man of God, but life has taught me one thing.
The most important thing God gives you... Is your family.
So, that's why, as the head of the table and the tribal chief...
I'm requesting a match. I've got new partners this time around.
My uncle and my cousin are here. And we wanna show everyone what the three of us can do together.
Furio
How convenient. We've got three of you, and we've got the Bystery Busters...
Who, themselves, need some good practice. I was going to give them a 3-on-3 tonight.
Guess I just found their opponents.
Although... You three are probably way better than anything BCW can offer!
Reigns
We are. And you can baleeeeeeb dat.
OOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!

Pegasus
I now find myself with enough time to carefully plan this out.
If I can't take aim at him just yet, I shall aim at everyone around him first.
I'll take their souls and imprison them in my cards. I'll have them delivered to his doorstep!
I hope he enjoys every second of it. I know I will.
And I've already got my first target in mind...
"Erwin is unnecessary", huh?
His dear draft pick Bevi is next in line, then.
With him out of the way, that excuse will not work anymore.
Afterwards... There's just so many people I could get rid of!
Roman Reigns, Ushiromiya Battler... And of course, Bolo Reynolds.
All of the wrestlers he protects around here, disappearing one by one... At my hands, nonetheless.
I wonder how he will feel about that. Will he feel the same things I do now, Erwin?
Having the ones dearest to you somewhere far, far away. Being powerless to fix that... To bring them back.
But I won't accept my situation anymore. Instead, he'll be the one who will have to bear that pain.
And if anything... I truly want that pain to last.
Even if one of them manages to knock me down once, it will be worth nothing.
Day after day, I'll ambush them. I'll backstab them. I'll fight them.
And I won't rest until enough souls are in my hands. Enough souls to change his mind.
...It's the only way to get you back by my side, dear friend. I hope you understand.
