*Adrenaline Rush then cuts to footage of a high-class restaurant. The camera is in the dining area, which is finished to the highest standard, with a very modern feel about it. It's a very open plan design, with everything appearing to be made up of metal and glass, and everyhing is obviously spotlessly clean. The camera looks around the diners, the majority of whom are dressed in evening gowns and sharp suits. The camera man has to busily try and avoid the hustling and bustling waiters all this time, who are but of course dressed in bow-tie formal attire. Finally the camera focuses on a man eating alone in a secluded corner of the restaurant. This appears to be the only man not dressed in a suit throughout the restaurant. Instead he is wearing a simple navy blazer with a white shirt underneath. The white shirt is largely opened, showing of a little too much of his body for many of the male customers in the restaurant. In his blazer pocket is a pair of overly large aviators. As the camera comes closer the man lifts his head, and The Ultimate Pain's stern gaze meets the camera. Pain has a plate of ravioli before him, with what appears to be lobster and salmon mixed through out it, with a glass of rosé wine to the side. Pain continues to pick through the food, clearly unimpressed with it in some manner. He eventually sets his fork down, and looks back to the camera once again.*
Ultimate Pain: "Before you, you see the man everyone wants to be, living the lifestyle that everyone wants. I'm sitting here in a restaurant that most people could never even dream of eating in. Dining on the finest food and even finer wine. I'm surrounded by the elite of the business world, with a few celebrities thrown in for good measure. I'm still the CWA World Heavyweight Champion, and I'm the leader of the greatest faction of all time, the Brotherhood. And, let's be honest, I can have any woman I want in this wide world, some that would even surprise you. Let's just say Rich should keep a tighter leash on Victoria."
*Pain gives a wink to the camera, and manages a smirk, his first show of pleasure so far tonight. He then picks his fork up and takes another bite of his ravioli, before slowly composing himself and returning his stare to the camera.*
Ultimate Pain: "Unfortunately, there always has to be a but doesn't there? Well, what a surprise, but, Ultimate Pain isn't happy with how things currently are. That's how everyone looking in sees it, but I never settle for anything less than perfection, and for me, things are anything but perfect. This is how I see it; I am in fact sitting before you in a restaurant that over charges you for frankly, mediocre food. I am not surrounded by the elite at all.
*Pain looks around the restaurant and intentionally raises his voice so people can hear him.*
Ultimate Pain: "Oh, definitely not! I'm actually surrounded by a bunch of ignoramuses, with a few wannabe famous idiots thrown in too!"
*Pain looks around the diners in disgust, which is met by a similiar reaction right back at him by anyone who has heard his comments.*
Ultimate Pain: "As for any woman I want? Who the hell actually wants Rich Stone's sloppy seconds chasing them? Then there's the title and my loyal Hoodlum's. The two things that actually made me happy, but at Hostile Takeover things didn't go as planned at all, and I blame three very different people for this."
*Pain looks back at his food, seemingly pondering who is to blame for what occurred at the PPV.*
Ultimate Pain: "Firstly, the Hood didn't have quite the impact I expected. I'm not blaming myself or any of the new members for this. We were set to become the most successful faction in history, and hell, we still are, but thanks to a certain Charlie Anderson, we no longer hold all the titles. I've no idea who he thinks he is! Owner of CWA or not, nobody should ever cross the Brotherhood!
*Pain has raised his voice in anger at this stage, and even more customers are beginning to hear what Pain is saying and looking at him. Some seem slightly amused at the large man becoming visibly annoyed, whilst others appear to be disgruntled by this.
Ultimate Pain: "Thankfully Joey has decided to go out and win this new X-Fly Title, and become the first man to have held two different titles in the CWA, and thus showing our supremacy yet again. Now, usually I'd be furious at Charlie, but fortunately for him, there's other things on my mind, and two people I have to blame even more so, for the goings on at Hostile Takeover. That of course doesn't mean I'll forget what Anderson's done, and you best remember that Charlie boy!"
*A slightly angered Pain, goes back to his food once again, picking through it, before taking another bite. He manages to compose himself once again, and then looks back at the camera.*
Ultimate pain: "What could be annoying me more than Charlie's insolence I'm sure you're wondering? Well, as everyone knows, I intended to become the first man to ever retain the CWA World Heavyweight Title by defeating Roberto. Now, fortunately, one part of that did become true, I did become the first man to retain the title, but I didn't beat Roberto. Personally I believe two people are to blame for this. Firstly, I'm afraid I feel a large portion of the blame must lay with myself. Anyone who saw my attitude prior to that match, knows I wasn't taking it as seriously as I should have. I let the title make me more arrogant than I've ever been before. I've always been a confident man. Generally anytime I step in that ring I'm expecting to have my arm raised victorious come the end of the match, but this was different. I was over-confident, I wasn't training like I usually do. I was starting to fill my body with all the wrong food...
*Pain looks down at the food in front of him now once again. Pain's angry tone, has gone to one more of disappointment, as he clearly disapproves of his recent behaviour.*
Ultimate Pain: "...Much like this garbage actually, except it wasn't costing me the fortune this is. Roberto was fortunate enough to step into the ring with me not at my best for the second time in CWA. This time however, I was smarter than I was the first time. This time, I made sure I still walked out the Champion, I had back-up clauses, or at least I thought I had. But this brings me to who I blame most for my mood since Hostile Takeover...
*Pain is visibly becoming angry again, just at the thought of this person. He tries to control himself, but is clearly struggling. He's now speaking in a quite, yet clearly hatred filled whisper.*
Ultimate Pain: "...Ryan Hall! For anyone who doesn't know about myself and Ryan, we have a storied past. And this leads me to a history lesson of sorts. It all started way back in IWF, when I first became a member of the Brotherhood. Ryan was in a rival faction, who we were constantly feuding with. Although we never faced back then, it was the beginning of a dislike for each other which still stands today. As the Brotherhood began to branch out, there was talk of us breaking into FWA to show our supremacy across the wrestling world. Kenneth, the then co-leader of the 'Hood, had already made an impact when he brought me in to back him up. Of course in my first match, Hall demanded he faced me. An already legit main eventer in FWA; I thought this is going to be easy. A huge win on my debut and we really would have made a huge splash in FWA, none more so than myself. Unfortunately, due to decisions outside of my control by FWA management, Hall won the match in dubious circumstances, something I've never forgiven FWA or Hall for. At the time I was a much less mature young man, and wasn't expecting anything along these lines to happen. In hindsight I realise they wouldn't want me to have beat their upcoming poster boy, but at the time I wasn't smart enoug hto see that. In some regards it's a lesson I hold dear, as it made me who I am today, but in so many ways it's made my dislike for Hall turn to hatred. This unsurprisingly lead to my own and the Brotherhood's early exit from FWA, with every member promising to never wrestle in an FWA ring ever again."
*Pain takes a slight break in his story, as he is becoming more and more visibly angry at the thoughts of Ryan Hall.*
Ultimate Pain: "Now here I am in CWA, on top of the world. I come out for my match at Hostile Takeover, one of the biggest nights of my career to date, and who's there in the front row? None other than "The Inferno" himself, Ryan Hall. Now clearly, I've never forgotten Ryan, and of course he's never forgot me. Yes, I shouldn't have reacted in such a way to him, but the hatred towards him still burns strongly inside me! Much stronger than the Inferno burns inside Hall! That cup of water may have seemed like little more than a show of disrespect from me to Hall, but it was more than that. It was a way for me to tell him, I've never forgiven, and I've certainly never forgotten. I'd never intended to finish my career without facing Hall again. I guess I should be thankful that he saw the light, and decided to come and watch the far superior, much improved, Ultimate Pain in action, at a CWA event. It's just happened to speed up the process of getting a rematch against him. This rematch is possibly the most important match of my career. It's finally given me the chance to enact my revenge upon Hall. It's given me the chance to beat the only man who holds a victory over me that I've never defeated. A chance, to wipe away a slight dent in my career; a defeat to the most over-rated, stuck up, son of a bitch in wrestling history! A chance to prove I am the superior wrestler in a superior organisation to Ryan Hall. That over all these years I've become the better wrestler, and the better man. And most importantly, it's given me the chance to destroy Ryan Hall once and for all!"
*Pain's voice has became ever more audible through out the restaurant as this conversation with the camera has gone on. Finally the head waiter comes up to Pain, having received several complaints from the other customers.*
Head Waiter: "Excuse me sir, but I'm afraid you are going to have to either be quiet or we shall be forced to ask you to leave. Your rowdyness is killing the mood for the rest of our paying customers."
*Pain simply smirks at the head waiter.*
Ultimate Pain: "Sorry, what? You're asking me to leave? With pleasure."
*Pain's anger seems to have finally bubbled over, as he suddenly snaps! He stands up, picks up the plate of ravioli and throws it against a wall, smashing the bowl, with the food going flying over various disgusted customers. He then turns the table upside down in fury, knocking everything else flying off it! Pain then stares at a petrified looking head waiter with a huge grin on his face! The head waiter suddenly falls backwards over a chair and lands on the floor, still staring at Pain. Pain then puts his overly large aviators on, apparently happy with the damage he's caused. He simply strides forward, before standing above the head waiter. He reaches into his pocket, helping to scare the waiter even more, as he seemingly wonders what this loose cannon is capable of next. Pain simply pulls out a huge wad of cash and flicks a few hundred dollar bills off from it. He then places it in the head waiter's top pocket, before lightly slapping his face.*
Ultimate Pain: "That should cover you for that crap you dare call ravioli, and there's a tip in there for your splendid hospitality."
*Pain then begins to laugh to himself as he walks over the head waiter and makes his way to the exit. Pain then looks at the camera one more time.*
Ultimate Pain: "Oh, and one final thing Ryan, you might say the Inferno still burns bright within you, but you're going to feel pain like you're never felt before at Adrenaline Rush. When the Ullllllllltimaaaaatee Paaaaaiiin is finished with you, the Inferno will be no more!"
*Pain then walks out the exit door, and the scene fades to black.*
