February 27, 2005 - First Blood Live! From FedEx Forum in Memphis, NT

-= Intro =-

(][ It has been a short and steady road back for Denis as he has returned after a well earned break, after finding the loss end of a match a few times in the beginning things went well for Denis, he picked up the TV title in an intense three series match against Neddie but was soon to lose it to the hands of John Cena. Denis decided to not give up on his quest for the beginners title but in turn he just ran into more hassle losing to Cena for the title and losing to the now Extreme title holder and soon to be opponent at first blood this Sunday Rhyno. After this disappointing losing streak Denis decided to hang up the boots for a much needed holiday, but for him it wasn’t all sunbaking on the beach and sleep ins, it was intense training to become better than ever. Eventually after a six week period he made a vengeful return to The EMF cutting straight to the chase making huge impact by defeating the just recant Cactus Jack to earn the rights to face Rhyno for the Extreme title. With Denis on his way to face Rhyno a young newcomer who goes by the name of Carlito Caribbean Cool decided to jump straight into the big leagues and challenge Rhyno for a shot, in a state of fury Denis made a huge shot at the young kid by challenging him to a match for the No.1 contender ship. Without a doubt the yet to be fearless Carlito accepted with no hesitation. Denis wasn’t prepared to lose this one especially after Carlito had not yet understood the full meaning of “To get big you need to start small” thing. So it came to Saturday night as Denis was strapping the boots on to face a young flawless Carlito. From the very start Denis showed his holiday payed off with sheer strength overwhelming the youth of the Caribbean in which is Carlito, the match came to a close as Denis showed not only strength but ring smarts as well, getting the one, two, three. Now its time for Payback in a match that Denis has more than earned to face Rhyno for the Extreme Championship, Denis called it “The perfect title for a guy like me” and certainly, if Denis is able to keep his momentum flowing, he just may have that title sitting firm and tight around his wait, but it all comes down to: strength, attitude, determination, ring smarts and the most important thing of all… courage, it takes courage to face an opponent and look them in the eyes, it takes courage to not get worried and stay one step ahead of the opponent, because without courage you would never be able to step foot into that ring with so much on the line little own facing your opponent. So if Denis happens to find all of these qualities and face Rhyno more stronger, determined, smart, aware, and courageous than ever before I think it will show everyone but mainly himself that he can and is capable of great and higher achievements…

(][ The scene opens as Denis is in the gym working on some strength training as a bold looking character enters the room…][)

:: The Giant :: Big Show - Hey Denis I’m in for a session, mind if I join you?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - No not at all, if you don’t kind me asking why are you here? Yu don’t need to be any stronger…

:: The Giant :: Big Show - Oh its not my strength its just my fitness I’m trying to get into shape so I can at least have second vantage point, but I’ve also come to ask you about your plans for the big match this Sunday against Rhyno, like what are your plans and how will you look at it? Cause hey I’m always up for some advice on ring and before match strategies.

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Well sure it isn’t really that complicated, see I had a rough start to my career but that was just a learning curb for me, now I am more experienced and also the fact I have faced Rhyno once before I expect a lot more due to the fact he has gotten a lot further since I last matched up against him, the key for me is to stay focused and to be alert even before the bell goes in case of any behind the scenes dirty work, now I know that Rhyno specialises in sheer strength to out manoeuvre his opponent so what I do is focus on out smarting him to get an upper hand, sure he will hit a few good ones on me but that part of the match, so I keep focused and with Rhyno I need to be alert because once he has m on the ropes he will definitely be hard to fight off, so yeah I just stay focused and try to perform my best this week.

:: The Giant :: Big Show - Well that really is a great way of doing things but I guess with me it’s a but hard, because I am not really an all round wrestler I am much like a big machine ready to overpower anything, which is why I’m here today for one to get some pointers off you and two just to get my fitness a little better!

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Well it has been nice to chat with you but I have to go do some pre meditating at the arena before the match this week, so I’ll catch you later.

(][ Big Show solutes Denis as he packs his gear and walks out of the fitness centre, Denis is confronted once again by his personal trainer just for a check up on his progress, Denis signals the ok and he continues to the car, he packs his gear away and drives off… Later that day he arrives at the local wrestling arena and gets out of the car, he makes his way up the stairs and enters an empty but exciting arena, he pulls up a chair and sits in the ring, he then gets up and seems to be reminiscing on his wrestling style, he jabs the air a few times and then takes a seat again, as he sits thinking to himself a figure enters the arena not catching Denis’s attention he then slides into the ring as Denis pops up… ][)

:: Japanese kick master :: Tajiri - Well hello there Denis what is it you are doing in here all alone?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Oh hello Tajiri I have been bumping into a lot of superstars today, but I am here because I just like to picture how the night will go until the fight is on between me and Rhyno…

:: Japanese kick master :: Tajiri - Oh don’t want to screw things up I see, well there’s no harm in that but really why all the fuss?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Well you see I want this title as much as any in the Fed. But I just don’t want to screw it up like I did with the TV title many weeks ago…

:: Japanese kick master :: Tajiri - Oh trust me Denis I have seen you wrestle these past 2 weeks and I have got to say there is no doubt you have gotten past all this nonsense.

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Yes but I feel the Extreme level is greater than the TV and if I haven’t raised in skill enough to be in this league then I don’t know what to do so I try to stay focused each and every second I need to.

:: Japanese kick master :: Tajiri - Hai, that is true but I have seen many matches between Extreme division wrestlers and I have to say its right up your ally with the way you have improved, and listen I watched Rhyno beat you last time but you were only starting out and under a rough patch of time so you don’t need to be always focusing on strategies, all you need to do is work out what needs to be done and work on it when the time comes, until then all that needs to be done is to relax keep active and never be nervous.

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - I am nervous now because I always seem to lose the nervousness when it comes to match time so I guess for me its normal but I see where you are coming from and I definitely think it’s a good idea and ill try it.

:: Japanese kick master :: Tajiri - Ok ill let you get back to whatever it is you were doing and we’ll talk later, bye mang…

(][ Tajiri leaves the ring then arena, as Denis returns to his seat, he starts to think about what was aid by Tajiri and lets it sink in… ][)

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Maybe Tajiri was right, maybe I am spending to much time worrying about what will happen and what is the best thing to do, if I go on any further I could be seriously taking it too far, Tajiri really opened my eyes, but for now my focus will be on Rhyno come this Sunday.

(][ Denis gets up and grins as he walks out of the arena happier having received a pep talk from Tajiri earlier, he makes his way to his car, gets in and drives down a flashy looking street, he gets out and knocks on the door of his personal trainers house/gym he gets let in and goes and sits down. The PT offers Denis a drink as they sit down to have a chat… ][)

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Hey PT I have just stopped in to ask you a few questions about my fitness for this weeks big match…

:: Fitness Guru :: Personal Trainer - Sure Denis but before you ask me, I was just going to say well done for the last two weeks and great wins by the way, plus with momentum like yours its going to be pretty hard to stop you even without fitness, but anyway go ahead…

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Wow thanks, but I just wanted to see if you could tell me how I am going with my fitness and not only that my attitude also, such as how I am taking all this, because I may have been taking this whole Rhyno thing a bit to seriously.

:: Fitness Guru :: Personal Trainer - Well I must admit with these past two wins you certainly haven’t loosened up much but I can understand where you are coming from here, with the things that happened before your holiday around the TV title I can see you don’t want to repeat over old ground, but I’m sure with your vast improvement and super fitness it would really help you to lighten up and take things as they come and maybe solely focus on the task at hand when the time comes other wise just enjoy life.

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Well that’s very good to hear I am doing well and from now on when it comes down to me and Rhyno I will have a level head not worrying to much about weather ill win or lose, I can take the Rhyno by the horns and strategize from there… I need to be more cool at home and with friends to have a great career and also a great social life. Thank you PT…

(][ Denis and PT get up and walk to the gym area while chatting among themselves with cold drinks, happy faces and Denis with a head full of good advice as the scene fades out till the next day… ][)

-= Next Day =-

(][ Ready to go and for another day on the go Denis packs his gear and goes off to the nearest local wrestling hall of fame… he enters as he looks around and eventually starts to talk to the owner, which was a veteran of professional wrestling, Denis took this as an opportunity to see how a legend goes about his matches and if he has been in any big matches such as the one Denis is soon to be in… ][)

:: The old but tough guy :: The Owner - Well hello there young chap what brings you down here?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Oh I was just hoping I could chat to you about how you prepared for a match and if you have had any big matches during your careers, do you mind giving me a few pointers?

:: The old but tough guy :: The Owner - Sure young man I can exchange warm-up styles withy you but really you don’t need to imitate another person for it to be a good one, I think you should just calm down a bit and stop worrying and take the Rhyno by the horns, but sure I can give you some of what I did as a wrestler no problem… Now what I used to do prior to a match was sit down and visualise my match try to find every fault and detail I knew about my opponent and put them to use in the ring, and the rest pretty much did its self, there was no need for the carrying on and the fuss worrying all the time, sure it doesn’t help to be scared but you need to be brave and stop the worrying and you’ll be fine trust me, Rhyno wont have a clue what hit him…

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Well thanks, all I wanted was to be set straight and for a bit of reassurance thanks, oh and uh nice job you done here keeping this place looking good, goodbye…

(][ Denis signals his goodbyes as he heads off to the house of MDK for a chat, Denis seems to be chatting a lot today but he really needs the edge to defeat Rhyno for his dream, the Extreme Title!… Denis gets out of the car and walks down to the door MDK opens up and greets Denis and lets him inside, they both sit down and start chatting… ][)

:: The IC Champ :: MDK - Hey Denis what brings you down this way?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Oh I’ve just been everywhere today and decided to stop off and talk to you about Rhyno…

:: The IC Champ :: MDK - Well I might be able to help you out, what’s the problem?

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Oh no problem, just a few questions, like your thoughts on Rhyno and if you have been able to see what he has become to be in terms of wrestling abilities etc.

:: The IC Champ :: MDK - Well ill let you know all I think of him and what I’ve also seen of him lately, hopefully that can be some help…

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Oh yeah anything is good, I just wanted to stop by and here your perspective of Rhyno…

:: The IC Champ :: MDK - Well lets start with his wrestling ability, personally he is more of a strength wrestler rather than skill, he does have a hint of skill and a little speed but the thing you must look out for is definitely his strength, now I have seen him wrestle a few times and he really seems focused and confident over his opponent, he wins his matches by out maundering his opponent and by hitting hard strong and devastating moves.. If you get the speed and skill over him it should be quite a match, but even so Rhyno will have a hard time challenging you in strength so if you stay focused and confident all the way, you should be able to outsmart him and get the upper hand, well that my opinion, its all up to you now…

:: Mr. Excitement :: Denis - Wow very precise there Michael thanks for the tips and advice, but for now ill just finish this drink and I shall be off for a good nights rest before the big night against Rhyno…

(][ Denis and MDK finish off there chat and Denis his drink as the camera switches too his car a moment later, Denis gets in and drives back to his house, he checks the answering machine, and then gets ready for bed, he then sits on the chair and pulls out his diary and begins to write about the match tomorrow for his holly grail in the EMF… ][)

Dear diary - Well tomorrow is the big day, I need to do my best and that’s it, me and my training have come to the ultimate in terms of goals, I go to face the Extreme title Championship holder Rhyno and it wont be a walk in the park which is why I am taking all the advice I received today and put into perspective, give it my best shot and be ready. Rhyno I will pounce on you as soon as I get the opportunity I will use your strength to my advantage, I will out work your abilities and put up the best damn fight I have ever put up, because when I get you to your final stretch, it will be the Denis Driver, straight into the mat you go, and the one, two, three, will be coming in the way of me, the new title holder will be named as Denis Kettleburg, and I will be walking out of that ring proud of my success but if not I will be glad I got to walk out little own gain the title because Rhyno your one hell of a wrestler, but I am expecting only the best from you and you can do the same with me, so for tomorrow night all I can say is… GOOD LUCK!

(][ The scene closes as Denis pulls the cover over himself and he goes to sleep for a day of hard work to earn himself that holly grail of his dreams and win the title he has been waiting so long for… ][)
