The scene opens inside the empty Astrodome… the stage is huge as nearly 100000 people will be crammed under its huge roof… 100000 eyes on 1 man… But Regal will not be worrying about the crowd; his mind will be focussed on the object in the centre of the ring, the Elimination Chamber and his 5 opponents. The Elimination Chamber is already hanging above the ring, the workmen have gone… and only The Duchess and Regal are left in the arena. Both are standing at the top of the ramp looking down at Regal’s task in hand… a task that is only a matter of days away… this is Regal’s first glimpse at the chamber… the first time he’s ever seen one. Regal stands in awe gaping at it.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: This is quite unbelievable…
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: I am speechless.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: I am too! I think the task ahead of me has just truly dawned on me… I have come to realise what I am up against and it is quite disturbing.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: I agree. I had not foreseen such complications… your plight has become a lot more difficult.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: It has but I shall not worry… I have taken everything in my stride thus far and I shall do the same at Under the Influence. It may seem difficult to comprehend victory in a match of so much magnitude and danger but I shall pull through… my destiny was written long ago. I WILL become the first ever nSa World Champion.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: I have no qualms about it William… you have walked the path of victory for so long, there is no room for error… and I’m sure you will not make a mistake.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: It would be a crying shame if I did… I would be outraged with myself if I did not complete my road to World Championship gold. I have worked so hard to teach these filthy Americans some manners… I have given lessons to many of the best superstars… The Undertaker… The Big Show… I even threw 10 men over the top rope AND last week, I washed that rotten vagabond Taz’s mouth out with soap! That blasphemous fiend received a right royal beating! He will regret the day he ever opened that bloody trap of his… I showed him what for!
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: I must say, it was about time someone showed him the meaning of respect…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Or the true meaning of what it is to be disrespected… His disrespectful acts came to a very premature end by a touch of elegance!
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: There will be no room for elegance inside the Elimination Chamber.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Absolutely not. The Elimination Chamber will not be about teaching some lesson to another horrible American… it will just revolve around the notion of survival.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: Shall we take a look inside?
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Sounds like a marvellous idea to me your Highness!
Regal and The Duchess make their way down the long ramp inside the Astrodome… The pair walk down normally but will it feel like a walk of doom on Monday? Regal does not seem to be nervous yet, he soon will be… His face is quite stern though, his may be due to the realisation of the obstacle put in front of him. The Duchess and Regal get to the ring and they take a long look at the huge chamber in front of them… Regal is the first to consider taking the walk up the steel steps into the ring.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: After you ma’am…
Regal watches The Duchess of Queensbury make her way into the chamber… she has to raise her long dress to avoid tripping on the steps. Regal soon follows and makes his way into the chamber; he looks around dumbfounded at what he is going to step inside.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: It’s awfully big!
' English Elegance ' William Regal: It is… but that is not my prime concern at this very point in time.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: What are you pondering about?
' English Elegance ' William Regal: I am merely thinking of the brutality that shall be caused inside this fateful monstrosity at Under the Influence. It shall be an incredible amount of carnage, one does not dare to discuss the consequences of such a match.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: Will it hurt?
' English Elegance ' William Regal: My god it will bloody hurt… hurt does not even describe the torment I shall go through inside this thing!
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: You do not have to do it William…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Ohh yes I flipping do! I shall not give up chance for World Championship gold… I shall not consider the option of quitting or worse, failure! I will do what it takes to win and whether I have to fight an Army of men or step inside a filthy beast like this, I will do it and I shall conquer it! Not even Everest could stop me succeeding!
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: Let’s not be silly…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Silly? This is not about being silly… this is bloody serious! There is the possibility I may walk out on a stretcher… my fine skin may be torn to shreds inside this… I may bleed profusely! I may even have to endure a broken limb or two to succeed but it is a risk I am prepared and I will take! I have but 1 option… and that is the walk for gold! The path of the righteous man has been written and I shall walk that path and anyone who stands in my way shall feel my vengeance… And I will strike down with furious anger upon any such person that stands in my way!
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: Have you been reading the bible William?
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Why do you ask?
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: That sounds quite similar to a part from Ezekiel…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Well, I have been praying your Majesty… I need to know that the Lord is supporting me; I need to know that he believes that I can… and I will succeed. I have done the Lord’s work… I have punished the filth and blasphemy of the American people and now, I ask for 1 reward… I have prayed for my victory… I have asked God for his blessing… I only hope that he looks down favourably upon me on Monday night.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: He shall William…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: This floor I walk upon is so hard! Can you imagine if I am thrown down upon it? Can you imagine what I will feel? Or worse…
Regal walks over to the glass chamber and taps on the Perspex.
' English Elegance ' William Regal: What will my body endure if I am tossed through this very Perspex? I shall bleed and dear lord, I could suffer.
' The Duchess ' Of Queensbury: That is the danger William…
' English Elegance ' William Regal: Rest assured your Majesty, I shall not suffer… I will dominate my opponents to such great effect that they shall suffer… they shall bleed… they will have the worst night of their pitiful American lives. I will inflict the most horrific beatings I have ever considered to deliver… I shall punish them for their wrongdoings and their disgusting nation. Booker T, Rob Van Dam, Triple and Shawn Michaels… they epitomise everything foul about this country… they embody every disgusting trait their people have. The annoying accent… the foul manners… the American attitude to life… Their dire actions have not been forgotten and I shall give them the biggest bloody lesson in respect they’ve ever dreamed of. They may hold the delusion that they can become the nSa World Champion… but they are misled. Such a grave mistake! I shall defeat them… I shall defeat them at any cost… Only 1 man will walk out of this chamber… Only 1 man will hold his head up high and hold the World Championship aloft in glory. I shall do it Duchess, I WILL BE THE NSA WORLD CHAMPION… and those filthy rapscallions will get their COMEUPPANCE!
Regal and The Duchess stand in the centre of the chamber as the cameras zoom out and the scene fades to static... Regal has the task of beating 5 other men, surviving the Elimination, all in 1 big attempt to become the first ever nSa World Champion. Does Regal have what it takes to win gold and can anyone end his undefeated streak?
