I swallow hard before closing my eyes and heading out. I knew this was her way of "daring" me to come out and meet her. Here goes.
A few short moments after Viper's last statement the lights fade out and Bon Jovi's "Dead Or Alive" begins to play over the sound system in the arena. A veil of mysterious mist begins to form atop the stage as the collective screens on the walls on both sides of the stage form an image of a thunderstorm.
Suddenly the audience was caught off guard as several bolts of lighting rained down from above causing the anticipation of who might be coming into the Pit. The massive screen known as the Creaturetron flashed a stylized "S" symbol.
Finally, one mighty bolt of lighting struck down at the very top of the ramp at the front of the stage. A figure emerged from the mist and shadows with his back turned to the audience. As this figure turned, revealing himself to be the man who called himself Slade, out of the mist several other figures emerged. Weirdly enough all of them were mirror reflections of Slade himself. While all of them we doing completely different motions they all lined themselves up on either side of the ring ramp as the real Slade turned and faced the ring.
The duplicates of himself seemed to melt into nothingness as one final thunderbolt struck down behind Slade and the instant it did the lighting returned to it's normal setting. However, as Viper awaited him inside of the ring thinking she was watching him walk down the aisle towards she and the rest of the audience was shocked to see him make his way through the crowd, hop over the guard rail, slide into the ring, and silently slide underneath of the bottom ring rope to get right behind Viper.
With a quick tap on her should he smiled confidently.
"Either you let me do that or you're not as sharp as everyone makes you out to be."
He didn't wait for her to turn around, he simply leaning back in the corner and adjusted his leather jacket so that she could clearly see his new DWF t-shirt which displayed his symbol in a somewhat backward Superman-ish style.
"So we finally meet face to face. You can thank me later seeing as that you are the first on the roster to get an exclusive interview with the Mainstream, Mass Media, Megastar of the DWF."
He removed his sunglasses and walked right up to her, not showing any kind of fear. It did surprise him how hot she was in person though. At the same time it concerned him how she was looking at him. He knew she was dangerous.
"I know you've had some choice words for me and I for you. So I DARE you to say all those things you had to say to about me on the radio TO MY FACE. I want to see if you're as overrated as I think you are.
Stepping forward so that his eyes met hers he held his hands out as if to welcome her best shot.
"So....Holla atcha Boy!" he said mockingly with a chuckle of amusement.
