*lying on a stretcher being carried quickly towards the open ambulance, Kenji is only just able to flicker his eyes open. In the brief time that they are open, he catches a glimpse of Jessica, with tears streaming down her face, running alongside him as the four paramedics continue to keep a quick pace. As he is inserted into the back of the ambulance, Kenji also spots Toshiya sitting next to Jessica, looking on in horror at the bloody mess Kenji is in. But before he can say anything to the pair, Kenji once again loses consciousness*
*The next morning*
*After not being able to gain consciousness for the rest of the night, Kenji very slowly opens his eyes due to the bright lights and begins to take in his surroundings. What he immediately realises is that he is not at home, he is at the local hospital in New Orleans. Turning to his right he sees a window which gives him a fantastic view of the early morning scenery. To his left, he spots two people on seats, Toshiya and Jessica. Both of them had been by Kenji’s side for the entire night and were now catching up the sleep that they had missed. Suddenly, a beep from the door can be heard as it slides open. A doctor with a clipboard walks into the room and looks straight at Kenji*
Doctor: Ah, I see you have finally woken up. Good morning to you.
*As the doctor gets closer to Kenji, Jessica and Toshiya begin to stir from their sleep. As they turn to face Kenji they notice that he had finally gained consciousness and both jump from their seats.
Jessica: KENJI! Thank God you are finally awake. We’ve been so worried about you.
Kenji: Th-thanks guys. I didn’t expect you to stay around for the entire night.
Jessica: Don’t be stupid. We couldn’t leave you here on your own. We had to make sure you were ok.
Kenji: Well I feel fine. Wait, where am I exactly?
Doctor: You are in the New Orleans hospital. You were checked in last night after your match with some “Red Dragon” I believe.
*Kenji looks down to his bed, trying to recall the events of the match*
Toshiya: Kenji, what do you remember from the match?
Kenji: To be honest, not much. Most it was a blur but what I do remember was feeling this vicious strikes to my back by…something. One second I’m falling from the ladder and the next, I’m here.
Jessica: Well, Dragon was striking you with a kendo stick and you fell off the ladder into some steps. As soon as the match was over, we stretchered you out.
*Kenji nods as the picture becomes a lot clearer. He attempts to sit up but has to stop when a sharp pain floods his back*
Doctor: Steady now Kenji, we don’t want you hurting yourself more than what you already are.
Kenji: Ok, i’m sorry. So, what’s the damage?
Doctor: Right do you want the good news or bad news?
Kenji: I think I need some good news first.
Doctor: Luckily, you haven’t suffered any major damage to your back. It is seriously bruised however so it will require you to wear medical tape around your body for a good few weeks.
Kenji: *chuckling slightly* damn, I just got to the point where I didn’t have to wear my last lot of tape! So, go on then, what’s the bad news?
Doctor: During your match, you were hit badly on your face. When you arrived, you were to be frank, a bloody mess. At first, we weren’t sure what was wrong, but after cleaning up your face...well, I’ll let you see for yourself.
*With that he hands Kenji a mirror. As he holds the mirror in front of him, he instantly notices the problem. His nose was bent at an angle*
Kenji: Oh, I see, my nose is broken. Right then.
Doctor: We’ve done all we can to start the healing procedure but for a while you’ll have to wear this before, during and after matches.
*the doctor then hands him a mask designed to prevent further damage to the nose*
Kenji: Thank you doctor. But I do have one big question…Can I still wrestle?
Doctor: *pausing for a short second* We have decided that as long as you wear the mask and tape…You can wrestle.
Kenji: *Breathing a sigh of relief* That’s exactly what a wanted to he-
*Suddenly Kenji is cut off by the knocking of the door. From behind it emerges a younger doctor, possibly an apprentice*
Doctor #2: Excuse me Mr Yamada, there’s a Mr Bishop that wants to see you.
*From behind the doctor, Clint Bishop emerges with a large grin on his face*
Clint: Ah, there he is, the injury prone Kenji. How are we?
Kenji: Clint, what do you want?
Clint: Oh? No pleasantries? That’s a shame. Well I just wanted to check on my injured competitor to make sure he is ok after being destroyed by Red Dragon. Look Kenji, that was your second chance at winning that hardcore title back and we believe that you are undeserving of another chance until you have proven yourself more.
Kenji: That’s…fine *Kenji lowers his head*
Clint: Aw don’t be so glum. We knew you didn’t have it in you anyway to win, *he leans in a little closer* and I’m hoping to bet that you knew as well.
*Upon hearing this Jessica moves in front of Clint*
Jessica: Now just one second Mr Bishit. That is not the way the owner of a wrestling company should be talking to his wrestlers. Why do you keep ridiculing him on his confidence? Yes, he may not have as much as some of the others but the one thing that he does have is spirit. Kenji has never broken down from a fight and i’m willing to bet that he never will. So why don’t you just leave and think about maybe showing him more respect.
Clint: And you think I’m going to listen to Kenji’s lovey-dubby girlfriend? Wow Kenji, it’s sad when you have to get someone else to talk for you. I mean, what does this wrestler-wannabe know about being a pro wrestle-
*After hearing too much, Kenji slams his fist on the nearby table*
*The room goes silent as all eyes fall on Kenji. He stares directly at Clint before making his way slowly and painfully out of the bed*
Kenji: I’ve heard quite enough of your…your bullshit! Yes, maybe I fear Red Dragon and yes, I didn’t believe in myself 100%. But I don’t need someone constantly reminding me.
Clint: Woah now Kenji, let’s not do anything irrational. I didn’t come here to start a fight and I feel that we are edging closer to it. Now, I see you are in a great deal of pain. So here’s what I’ll do, have the next vindication off. I have plenty of other people capable of taking yo-
Kenji: Oh Hell No I’m not taking the night off! Like Jessica said, I NEVER back down from a challenge. So, you better book me or expect a resignation paper on your desk.
*silence comes over the room again as Kenji and Clint have a serious stare down. Eventually, Clint speaks up. *
Clint: You’re walking a very thin line Kid. You don’t understand what you are getting yourself into by talking shit to me. So guess what, I’ll book you this week, against Andrew Jordan…
Kenji: Thank yo-
Clint: …Ah Ah. And a new signing, Jesse James.
*Kenji thinks for a moment and then looks at Clint again*
Kenji: You’re on!
Clint: Lovely. I’ll see you on Friday.
*With that, Clint makes his way to the door without looking back and leaves Kenji with Jessica, Toshiya and the Doctor*
Jessica: Kenji, are you…
Kenji: *turning towards Jessica and smiling* Let’s go guys. I’m feeling much better.
*So, after thanking the doctor, Kenji, along with Jessica and Toshiya, leave the hospital and set off for home. *

*A day after Ascension*
The scene opens up in a hotel room where we see Andrew laying on the bed with a towel on his face with Jessica sitting at the foot of the bed.
Jessica: Well, you didn’t suffer a concussion but you did sustain a few minor injuries but nothing that will keep you out of action. Do you want me to release a media statement for you?
Andrew sighs as he removes the towel and looks at Jessica.
Andrew: No, I’ll do it later. Have I been booked for next week yet?
Jessica: Yes, don’t get upset but they have you booked in a three way match against newcomer Jesse James and GCW vet Kenji Yamada.
Andrew furrows his brow as he mulls over this news.
Andrew: Not my ideal match as I’m sick of these multi person matches but it’s my job to go in there and do my part to make GCW entertaining so I can’t complain. It pays the bills.
Jessica smiles as she gets up and turns out the light.
Jessica: You need to get some sleep. We need you at 110% this week.
The scene fades as the lights go out.
The scene opens up inside a gym. Not a typical state of the art gym but a small local gym downtown. The smacking sound of skin on leather can be heard as a number of fighters smash and kick away at the punching bags. The camera pans around the gym and comes to a stop where we see Andrew practicing his striking on a heavy bag with Jessica to the side of him.
Jessica: Keep it up Andrew. Don’t let up because your opponents won’t let up.
Andrew: That’s true but unlike this punching bag my opponents will be hitting me back.
Jessica: Not the point, you need to be able to rekindle the fire you had back when you were fighting in Japan.
Andrew: You weren’t with me in Japan..
Jessica: No, but I have seen your matches and followed your career closely.
Andrew: You followed my career?
Jessica blushes and stammers before regaining her composure.
Jessica: Not in a creepy stalker way or nothing….mainly for research reasons…I’m going to stop now.
Andrew lets out a small laugh as he takes a few more swings at the heavy bag.
Andrew: Anyway what’s my schedule for today? Anything specific I’ve got going on?
Jessica reaches down next her and picks up a small notebook.
Jessica: You have a small meet and greet this afternoon and then immediately following you have an interview set up to promote your upcoming match at Vindication.
Andrew: So business as usual then?
Jessica: Pretty much.
Andrew takes a few last kicks at the bag before grabbing a towel at his feet and wiping himself down.
Andrew: Sounds good, let’s go.
Scene fades as Andrew makes his way out of the gym.
A few hours later the scene opens up and we see Andrew sitting at a small table with Jessica next to him. A fairly decent line has formed with a mixture of kids and adults waiting to have their memorabilia signed. A security guard looks at Andrew who in turn nods and the guard begins waving people forward. A few minutes pass as Andrew smiles and converses with the crowd as he signs some autographs. A large man saunters up to the table.
Andrew: Hey, how you doing today? You have something for me to sign?
Andrew notices the man is holding nothing, which seems strange but he pays it no mind.
Man: Actually the only thing I want you to sign is your death certificate after Kenji and Jesse kill you this Friday.
Andrew: Well, that’s not too kind of you but whatever.
Man: Yeah, you suck. You can’t even win a match, how are we supposed to take you seriously when you keep losing?
Andrew sits there as the man continues to tear into him for a few more minutes before holding up a hand to silence him.
Andrew: Look. You aren’t wrong. I haven’t had much luck in GCW but I’m hoping that is about to change. I haven’t given you much to cheer about but stick with me and I’ll change your mind and prove you wrong.
Andrew’s words seem to calm the man down as he turns and walks away. A few more minutes pass as Andrew signs a few more autographs. A blonde woman holding a microphone makes her way to the table.
Laura: Hey, Laura Vale from ESPN. I’m supposed to interview you later but we are crunched on time so I was hoping I could go ahead and just run the interview here?
Andrew: Sounds good, let’s do this.
Laura: Awesome, alright, so you have a match booked for Friday against GCW’s new signing Jesse James and GCW veteran Kenji Yamada and you are coming off of two straight losses. How are you preparing mentally for this match?
Andrew: Well, losing is never easy and with each loss it doesn’t get any easier. I don’t think it ever will and I’d be dumb to believe losing would eventually not sting as much. That being said it’s been said that you can learn more with a loss than with a win. Well I am taking these losses and looking at them in detail to see where I slipped up. I can’t afford to lose a third match in a row. I’ve never lost anything back to back and I sure as hell don’t plan on losing my third match in a row.
Laura: Do you believe your opponents will take you seriously coming off of a second straight loss?
Andrew: They better if they know what’s good for them. In MMA everyone has a punchers chance and that same thing applies to wrestling. Anyone can beat anyone. It’s just a matter of who wants it the most. I can guarantee that my two opponents want this win a lot but I also guarantee they don’t want it nearly as much as I do. I’m tired of losing and it’s time to take control of my own destiny and turn things around with a win. Vindication is a proper name for our weekly show as I will be vindicated this week. I’m coming for you Kenji. I’m coming for you Jesse. Be ready because Hurricane Andrew is still alive and well.
Laura: Hurricane Andrew, I like that. Well, thank you for your time. You’ve given me a lot to work with. Good luck and I hope you win.
Andrew: Thanks, anytime you want to send ESPN my way let me know. I always have time.
Laura nods as she walks off. Andrew then goes back to signing autographs as the scene fades out.
Andrew Jordan: Anyone checked my app for approval yet?
