" So it speaks after all. Your in for a world of pain, and when it's over if I let it be over, you'll be begging me for the killing blow. Till then, filth. CATCH ME! If you can!"
Gojinn missed the thumb by inches as it dug into his right iris, sending him reeling to pry the attacker away from him. He could hear a distinct whirring a hissing, and growling as the thumbnail jammed into his socket, then he felt the European uppercut smash his mandible freezing him in a state of continuous fall. He was now on the canvas, dazed as the world watched. A cheap shot no doubt but it was the unsheathing of the six inch blade behind him that worried him most. The Liston tickled his Adam's apple as Gojinn forced a deep swallow which only intensified the touch of the polished blade.
"Right now it's over. Your blood will spill on your stomach and you will be turned over bowing to God in just a flick of my wrist. Your arrogance offends me Gojinn. Your committing crimes that have to be avenged. I've broken stronger men than you. That's the beauty of it all really. Your career is front page news. Mine is buried in whispers of fear, obituaries, and unsolved questions. I'll tell you right now I'm better than you. I will show them all at Carnage. Shame you won't realize it."
The Ripper whispered so only his opponent could hear, letting his deliberate play resonate with Gojinn through a unsettling hot breath on his exposed neck.
" If your smart you'll learn about me. It might give them a better match. Ha ha, but I should be going, I have preparations to make."
The Liston blade spun away from Gojinn's neck and the Ripper made a mad dash for the bottom ropes sliding to make his escape. Blinded and humiliated Gojinn shot to his feet his fists flailing the table over as the Ripper's frame vanished into the dark of the arena exit door.
As sight returned to his right eye he spied the contract, signed by both parties. At Carnage he would not be tricked so easily. Many thoughts rolled through his head, the camera's gaze focused on the expression on his face. What would he leave this Ripper with, a feeling of premature victory, A display of anger, or something unexpected? The next moment gave fans the answer!
