(I) Fuck with your soul like Ether
(WILL) Teach you the king you know you
(NOT) God's son across the belly
(LOSE) I prove you lost already
Those were the words that appeared on the tron as the familiar theme of Ether by Nas played. The fans erupted into cheers as it played, because they knew this was Gideon's theme when he got started in this industry. The fans and Viper if she was watching knew that shit just got serious if this was playing. But the question remained, whether Gideon was gonna come out of that stage and anounce his in ring return. Soon after, the scene changed as it showed Draven crouching down on a roof next to a gargoyle in New Orleans, that resembled the one that he and Gideon occupied, when ever they went hunting.
When they saw him they already knew the reason he was Using Gideon's old theme. After his encounters with Devil and his female partners, they knew he was on a mission. As the camera panned out they saw the clear skies as the stars shown brightly and the moon was almost full. As the camera was pointed at the city below, they saw that it was foggy, as a mist blanketed the city. The camera soon went back to Draven who was now standing as the cape of his hooded trench coat, flowed with the wind. Draven removed his hood so the fans could see his face Draven surveyed the city as he closed his eyes and started to reminisce of the life he had before he died and was reborn. He then opened his eyes as he began to look into the camera ready to speak.
"New Orleans, this was where it all started for me as I was kidnapped as a baby back in 07 and taken into the dark future I grew up in, by a stranger hired by my grandfathert's Sire Bloodmoon. This was the vampire capitol of the world, and was where he built his empire. Where he and his genetically enhanced vampires known as Blood Reavers ruled the entire world. It was from here, that my grandfather's personal Assassin, Daemon Darkthorn saved me from suffering what ever fate he had for me."
Draven sighed as he continued to reminisce.
"Daemon was the only father figure I knew since according to him my father and grandfather disappeared, when they were mortally injured by Bloodmoon and my mother was murdered. Only images I saw of my father Gideon were old tapings of the matches he had in DWF and the previous promotion he was in. I had to watch these videos as part of my training so I could learn to fight like him."
Draven closed his eyes again.
"You have no idea the atrocities I have seen. This had become a world where humans and creatures alike had to live in fear. The vampires that chose not to be genetically enhanced were murdered, while those that chose to side with him ruled with him. You see the life you and every other creature in DWF has is a cake walk compared to what the cvreatures of that time had to go through. In those times I donned a mask with goggles to hide my identity as I slayed the reavers. This world we live in now is full of hidden rifts that lead to different time periods and even different realities. It was through one of these rifts that I traveled back to the present where I belonged, to prevent that future from ever happening."
Draven looks away from the camera as he begins to think about when he and Gideon went to help Wyldchyld in the battle for Asguard against Loki and his demon allies. He then turns back to the camera.
"You weren't there when me and my dad helped Wyldchyld in the battle for Asguard in order to save Asguard and this world. I watched as the demons known as Preachers inc were decapatating my dad, forcing me to sacrifice my own life to save him, as I transfered my life force into his body. I felt the pain he felt at my passing as I left my mother's womb for the second time and was reborn into what I am today. You weren't there as my father trained me and another child in a pocket dimension where the Immortals built the first bastion."
He begins to think back to Last Rights where Enigma killed Gideon.
"And when I returned home from the bastion I watched as my m,other suffered during the Hell's Gate match at last year's Last Rights pay per view,, when Enigma interfered. I came back to DWF for the same reason I returned to the present. To right some wrongs, and Devil, She-Devil, and Jestress, Not you or anyone else in DWF is going to stop me from achieving my goals. It begins again where it began for me the first time. Here in New Orleans at Strikezone, so be ready."
