What IF?


Recommended Posts

The scene opens in the OCW combat center. The Last Blacksmith with his hood up, enters the room, still in the dark.

 

The Italian climbs into the ring, and after making a quick tour of the square, rests his elbows on the third string of the square, looking towards a camera placed there.

 

TLB: Have you ever wondered what destiny is?

 

TLB:You know Bingo, this is the main question of our existence. Whoever believes in destiny thinks that everything is predetermined. A higher entity has decided the fate of each of us, and this, this cannot be changed...

 

TLB:No matter how hard you try, no matter what you do. The point of arrival will always be one.

 

 

TLB:And so, for example according to the Greeks, there were the heroes, kissed by the Gods and destined to have a glorious life. And then the forgotten children, those who could have done nothing to raise their fortunes. Because B, who would dare to challenge the gods ..

 

 

TLB: You are part of the first category. A strong, winning, unbeatable machine. A Hercules returned to earth, who has only one road ahead of him, that of glory and success.

 

TLB:Like him, you have faced many challenges. Overcoming them all. The 7 fatigues of Bingo we could call them...

 

TLB:Last year, you got rid of those who controlled your mind, and you became champion. And soon, you could break all the records of this federation.

 

TLB:I can already imagine it you know. Wrestlution 15, B17 vs Nate Ortiz. Or Paul Pugh, or a returning Drago Cesar. Something that will celebrate your record, and get you right into the HOF on what will be the night of your consecration.

 

TLB:You CAN'T fail...

 

 

Blacksmith turns to some posters that depict some of the superstars just mentioned.

 

TLB:But you know Bingo, not all men are normal and cautious. Not all men passively accept to surrend to the established order

 

TLB:And although the punishment can be terrible, although their fate seems already sealed, all this does not make them retreat from defying the gods, on the contrary, they find more courage and ambition to do so

 

 

Blacksmith decides to step out of the ring, and reaches for a punching bag

 

TLB:Because instead of accepting fate, instead of bowing their heads, even if they are inferior, even if with the odds against them, they are driven and obsessed with just one fucking question

 

TLB:WHAT IF?

 

TLB: And you know what, I'm in that category

 

 

Blacksmith begins punching the punching bag...

 

TLB:What happens if I decide to challenge fate...

 

The force of the fists intensifies...

 

TLB:WHAT IF I decide that I can change destiny, because it is nothing more than an excuse for failures?"

 

TLB:WHAT IF? a simple "Anarchist" can demolish what seems already written, and drop all your castle of cards"

 

TLB:WHAT IF THE LAST FUCKING BLACKSMITH, THE FORGOTTEN SON, THE REJECTED, THE OUTCAST, THE SON OF A LESSER GOD, CAN ACTUALLY KICK YOUR ASS AND HUMBLE YOURSELF IN FRONT OF YOUR SHIT CITY AT THE CLASH!

 

Blacksmith demolishes the punching bag with a final kick

 

TLB:WHAT...IF...

 

TLB:That's what everything revolve around...

 

TLB:Oh do you want to know what happened to Hercules? He died, poisoned by an ointment. Because you know, cunning goes where strength can't.

 

TLB:See you soon, Boring17.

 

 

The scene ends with Blacksmith staring menacingly straight at the camera...
