Prologue: When I Was Born..I Was Born The Man!..And When You Step on That Apron Your Ass Becomes Part of The Game That I'm The Man In!
Fade up the Sin Wrestling logo.
In any profession, whether it be athletic or educational, police work or criminal, there will always be one person that stands out above all else. That one man will set the standard that all others will be held to and more often than not, that standard will never be met.
"I AM..... THE MAN!!"
To be compared to the likes of Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair can be one man's greatest achievement. Meant as a compliment, to the best of the best, it is an insult. In the mind of the best, there is no comparison. There is no one on their level and there never will be. It becomes the career of the best to remain the best, to hold off the top of the mountain and fight away all those who seek to claim it as their own. To fight back the threat of elevation for all they are worth.
The theory of elevation is a myth creamed over by internet fan boys. No matter who is on top, the complaints about lack of elevation are evident. For years, they will scream that a man deserves a world championship push and when he receives it, he immediately becomes public enemy number one and another up and comer takes his place as the internet golden boy. Because of the lack of elevation, the fans coined the term "glass ceiling," meaning that the mid-carders could look up through the glass ceiling and see the main event but could never quite reach it. Constantly bumping their heads into the ceiling with no sign of it giving in.
Sid was never the internet golden boy.
Sid made his presence known in Noah Japan for the first time.Immediately upon Entering NOAH, began an intense feud with Kenta Kobashi...Whom he Defeated In an incredible Semifinal match for the NOAH Championship.He eventually went to the finals of the NOAH championship,but lost to Ikuto Hidaka
Although Sitting around and relaxing after his loss, had its perks,this did not suit the self-proclaimed "Man." It was time to return to Wrestling and claim the one belt that should've been his from the beginning. Sid made his appearence in FMW, made his intentions known, and crushed Hisakatsu Oya in his first match .
Sid made the challenge to Hayabusa,and made the promise that the FMW's Show at the Tokyo Egg Dome would be the site where a new Champion would be crowned. Sid and Hayabusa wrestled an epic match, lasting upwards of forty minutes, before Sid hit the Death Trap and put the legendary performer's other foot in the grave, staking claim to his first world championship. "The Man" had finally reached the pinnacle of his career, 5 years of struggling in Pro Wrestling paying off once and for all. Sid's career was riding high .
And then it all came crashing down.
Atushi Onita took over FMW from Hayabusa and his first act of business was to strip all champions of their titles with the intention of crowning new ones later in the night. Sid didn't agree with this method and refused to take part. He threw down the FMW Heavyweight championship and walked away for what he thought would be forever.
Onita failed. FMW was broken. Hayabusa returned to pick up the pieces and announced that forty-five men would do battle in the main event of a PPV entitled Brawl for all . Forty-five men would do battle and one man would walk out with the Frontier Martials arts Wrestling World Heavyweight Championship. After his first reign had ended so suddenly, Sid had to show them that they made a mistake by robbing him of his championship. He entered himself in the match. Everyone immediately wrote him off as hype. A man FMW had washed out before he could become washed up. Many heralded Komazawa Olympic Park Gym as the place where a new contender would step up and take the crown. Veteran, hungry superstars the Likes of Vicious Vic Grimes,Stan"the Lariat"Hansen And Big Van Vader came from all over to try their hand in the main event.
In one match, Sid climbed the ladder to the very top of Frontier Martial arts Wrestling. Eliminating wrestler after wrestler after wrestler until he was the last man standing.His mask broken,blood staining his features, Sid eliminated The Sadistic ECw Legend Sabu to win the FMW championship for the second time.
Forty-four other men came from all over the world to win the title and "The Man" turned every single one of them away as if they were children playing a man's game. Sid showed every single one of them exactly why he was the man to beat. Sid established once and for all that he has broken through that glass ceiling
And now With Sid firmly back in place, panicked. The wrestlers were threatening to quit if something wasn't done about the living, breathing, ass kicking machine known to many as Sid"The Man"Frankenstein. People were getting concussions left and right thanks to Sid and his arsenal of Ring side Weapons, until one night, Hayabusa pulled the trigger that would almost kill Sid's once and for all.
The match was for the FMW World Championship. Sid versus Mr. Gannosuke versus Mammoth Sasaki. Sid dealt out punishment left and right, taking advantage of them like they were first match rookies until Willy "Hido" Takayama and Tetsuhiro Kuroda arrived at ringside on the orders of Hayabusa, distracting Sid long enough for Gannosuke to sneak a pin on Sasaki to steal the world championship.
Sid cornered Ganosuke,Takayama and Kuroda and his ensuing revenge was so fierce, so brutal, so very, very awe inspiring, that Hayabusa had no choice but to Fire Sid before lives were lost.
For nearly three years, the wrestling world had continued on without Sid and the wrestlers have let out a sigh of relief. Elevation has occurred in his absence and new stars have been born. It wasn't until Sin Wrestling opened its doors that Sid decided it was time to make another impact. In a promotion ruled by Corey Page,Sid felt it was his duty to show them what real talent was like.
After sitting back and watching the business evolve without him, he decided that it was time to return, to show the up and comers that they are not the Man.
... Once upon a broken child..
The pain...and the suffering...of a childhood lost. An empty swing, an empty promise. A broken dream, a broken home. It's strange, how laughter looks like crying, with no sound & rain drops taste like tears, without the pain. the tortured soul that best reflects the ragged edges of human emotion. One man, his life... nothing but a tangled web.. one must face their demons again & again to try & gain the upper hand yet lose that comeuppance in a never-ending cycle of pain and retribution. Bound by loneliness and self depression.
Wallowing in his own depression, he seeks no reaction, no acceptance from any one else but His allies. for his whole life, the course if it all began by a broken heart, shattered by god... no more does he trust or care. about his own well being or the well being of those that stand in his way, that dare to try and bring him further down.
his life, not of the ordinary... but more one, that brings you to tears, brings you to feel sorrow and pity for him. something, he rejects, but yet his own eats at him like a plague, watching, waiting to to hurt him. driven by anger, driven by hate... he seeks to fulfill his calling, his life story. complete the story of his dear suffering life.
He sees it as his calling, his purpose of life to be achieve this high stature that others so dearly love...his life has brought him nothing but pain, his path, his calling obstructed and set off course by these events... driven him to become a madman... seeking to find those, with no guidance, no confidence, the out casts and misfits of the world, unit them as one and follow them, like a General ... in the army.. sent out to live by his rules, his every word... not fearing to take on anything.
But those individuals he attaches himself to, end up being the ones that dearly cut and hurt him deeply.. a mind is a complicated thing, something of force, of power... a weapon of sheer havoc and destruction, his mind... one that's brought pain to the world, shed blood and let it flow, like the nile river.. sought out to this world his won personal play ground, his field of horror and misfortune... seeking revenge and total annihilation of anyone and everyone that dare to cross and hurt him.
He takes not kindly to betrayal..... he walks his life anyone else,except for his allies... they think they understand him, but they don't, they don't at all..
Don't try it at home. You've seen it and you've heard it plenty of times. It's drilled into you every single time you turn on the Television to watch the program; why? To stop insanity taking advantage of your sanity. You've had dreams .. dreams of climbing to the top of the turnbuckle. Dreams of leaping off the turnbuckle .. dreams .. of glory. Some may or may not choose to admit it; the fact is, you idolise those who risk their life every week. You RESPECT .. you HONOUR those who put their bodies through decimating pain; career ENDING pain.
The colperate of hardcore .. of insanity and of sheer guts is not up for debate. Ever since Sid made his debut he's endured PUNISHEMNT after PUNISHMENT after PUNISHMENT .. his blood .. his sweat .. his TEARS - each one of them have been put into the business. Cast your mind back to Frontier Martial Arts Wrestling, 2002.
For those of you who witnessed that historic night, it's a memory that will forever lay in the back of your mind .. for it was that very night .. that Sid captured the hearts of Japanese Wrestling fans in an indescribable way.
Let me remind you of that night; Sid one on one with The Mad Man from Bombay or Sabu, as we knew him better back then. A Cage match- a match not for the weak at heart - saw these two men slug it out on top of the Cage. Two warriors .. two SURVIVORS .. exchanging rights,bites, lefts, knees - you name it, these men were doing it. Suddenly, a twist of events. Sabu - SAVAGELY and BRUTALLY .. SADISTICALLY threw Sid off The Top of The Cage.
The injuries were never to be forgotten; Sid went through the commentary table, ,he hit the thumbtacks,he hit the steel barrier and he was drained of any last spec of energy he had left. The medics came, they placed Sid on the stretcher; but was that all? No!.Not by a long shot. With Sabu still on top of the Cage, Sid got off the stretcher and climbed BACK up to stand face to face, toe to toe with The MadMan!.
The fans were electric; The Fans .. were SHOCKED out of there brains!Can you know what happened next? Yeah, I think you do .. I know you do. Sid wrapped his hand around his neck and Chokeslamed him THROUGH the Cage right down onto the mat!.
A SICKENING scene it was .. but that was not it! No. It took another Chokeslam on hundreds of thumbtacks before FINALLY this man .. this INSANE man, was satisfied with his bloodlust. The match was not only won but the hearts of millions around the world, was as well.
The thing I love about pain the most,when i'm in the ring, is the reaction. Sabu, after he threw me off the Cage.. did you pay attention to his facial expressions? I sure as hell did .. I can remember it like it were only yesterday. That deep, crazy stare .. he THOUGHT that it was over. He thought that he had put an END to my career and that's where it only begun; that's where it JUST STARTED .. TO GET GOOD! When Sabu failed to cover me for the Three Count, the look in his eyes was dis-belief.
Not even He could believe .. that there was somebody just as SICK, as INSANE .. as MAD as him .. who could enjoy the PLEASURE of Thumbtacks sticking out of his back, arms and legs. See, when Sabu pushed me off of the cage .. I felt, like I was in heaven. It touched me in a way that I can only hope I experience it .. again. When the tacks pierced my skin, it was as bad as a bee-sting .. and as SWEET .. as a butterfly! That night when I had a shower, my body ached .. it Hurt as the water washed away the brutality but I realized that it was well worth it. It's a feeling .
An EMOTION that I truly cannot explain to you. It's something that come this Sunday, I will EXPECT and be AWAITING that feeling again but this time .. This time it's different. This time Draco,Slash and Kodiak will be the ones in beautiful agony; but they of course will HATE it! they will howl like a bunch of lonely dogs without their partners .. without their bitches. I encourage every single one of you to bring along a camera.
Does it scare you to hear that i love pain?. You can hit me with all you've got .. Chairs .. Sledgehammers .. ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE ME BLEED! ANYTHING THAT WOULD HURT A NORMAL PERSON .. But it WON'T effect me! I am not LIKE YOU! ! i a mad man; a mad man on a mission for one thing.. GOLD! SWEET, PRECIOUS, ILLUSTRIOUS GOLD!! Draco,Slash.Kodiak .. my dear friends .. I would risk losing a LEG, AN ARM AND A HUNDRED TEETH JUST TO TIGHTLY HOLD THAT WORLD TITLE! I will do the same on Sunday at Night of The Living Sin .. to see you all rest in shattered, bloody pieces.
The scene opens and shows the inside of the now familiar Pub. At the bar a fat stubby bartender stands serving the crowd as "Renegades Of funk" by Rage Against The Machine plays in the background as the bunch of drunkards try their best to dance. The camera cuts to the front door where Sid walks in and scours over the crowd before making his way over to the bar and sitting down on a stool. He motions for the bartender to serve him a beer and rests his chin on his fist as he thinks. The bar tender opens a bottle and slides it to Sid who doesn't even notice. the bottle is just about to collide with his arm when a hand comes out of no where and grabs the bottle. Sid snaps out of his dream world and looks over to his right to see a very familiar face and begins to smile.
Sid stands up and looks at his fellow Sadistic ally Trinity.
Trinity: I believe this is yours.
She hands him the bottle and Sid takes it then motions for her to sit down beside him. She sits next to him and sighs.
Sid: What you doing here?
Trinity: Oh thought I'd just come here and try and getaway from Shawn Armstrong,he's been hounding me all week.
The mention of Armstrong's name irritates Sid as he takes a swig from his drink.
Trinity: I guess from that look ,you dont exactly like him either.
Sid shakes his head as he places the bottle on the table.
Trinity: So.What have you been up to?
Sid places the beer down and takes a deep breath.
Trinity: Oh Shit!.......
Trinity turns away as the source of the voice appears. It's Shawn.
Shawn: How did I know I would find you here?
Trinity: Look, just get the fuck away me.
Shawn: Well, at least lets look on the bright side, I'm at least not seeing the bastard boyfriend of yours here right now. so I guess nows the chance to show you what a real --
At that point, Shawn notices who she is sitting next to.
Shawn: So much for the bright side.
Trinity: Don't even start.
Shawn: Now i know You are desperate for a man, but Jesus this ugly freak?!
Throughout this whole situation, Sid has said nothing, he has simply sat back and observed the situation. At this point, however, he has had enough.
Sid: Shawn, if I were you, I would watch exactly what you say in my presence. I could snap you like a twig if I so choose!
Shawn: Oh is that so, Boy? You know how the saying goes. It's a raw night, time for a bar fight.
Sid slowly rises to his feet, and approaches Shawn.
Sid: The name is Sid!.
As the two stare each other down,Trinity quickly jumps off of her stool and gets between the two men, pushing Shawn back a little bit.
Trinity: That's enough! I'm not going to let you do this!
Voice: That makes two of us.
Shawn, Sid, and Trinity all three turn and see Corey Pagewalking up from behind them.
Corey: Now boys,This is my bar and I really don't feel like cleaning up after a bar fight tonight, so both of you had better just back down.
Shawn: Don't push me tonight, Corey. I've already been pushed far enough.
Corey: You don't want to be reasonable about this? Fine by me. Johnnie, Ricky! Over here!
A few moments later, two large men each grab one of Shawn's arms. They start to drag him away, but Shawn struggles.
Shawn: This isn't over! Not by a long shot!
Before he can say much more, the two bouncers drag him through the crowd and out of sight.
The scene fades back to show Sid and Trinity sitting back at the bar which is now practically empty. Nothing can be heard but we can see Sid is probably telling a story while Trinity is watching on, her expression showing how amazed she is at what's happening...the sound begins to fade in...
Sid:...And ever since then i can't stop thinking about Blood.
Trinity:...Shit!. That's...that's quite a predicament you got going there.
Sid raises his arm and downs the rest of what looks like his sixth beer.
Trinity:Does flame know about this?
Sid: No!and i don't plan on telling him.. yet.
Trinity: You confident?
Sid nods as he starts on his seventh.
Sid( putting the bottle down): Pretty confident.
Trinity: What about the Sentinels? You not worried that they might -
Just then Sid's phone starts to ring . He pulls out the phone and checks who it is.
Trinity: Who is it?
Sid quickly flashes the screen to Trinity then answers it.
There's no answer apart from a few deep breaths.
Trinity( mouthing to Sid): Who is it?
Sid: Sharon? Is That you?
All of a sudden a high pitched screeching sound can be heard causing Sid to drop the phone and clutch at his ear. Trinity quickly catches the phone and puts it to her ear as Sid tries to shaking the rining from his ears.
Sid looks at her, still a little confused.
Trinity: The signals dead.
The fades out and opens to the outside of Sid's house up . In the distance, the unmistakable sound of a motorcycle approaching is heard. After several moments, the motorcycle screeches up out in front of the driveway , and Sid and Trinity step off . Sid quickly runs quickly followed by a concerned Trinity ,who looks on as he hurriedly unlocks the door with his spare key and rushes in.
Sid looks around .
Sid:Sharon,are you in here?
He walks through into the kitchen and sees the back door wide open. Sid rushes once again,with Trinity barely keeping up.
Trinity: She might still be in the house.
Sid shakes his head, noticing a rip in his back fence.
Sid( pointing to the rip): There.
He climbs through and looks around at a large patch of ground which can only be described as a small wood in between all the backyards down the street. Sid follows the disturbed area, branches and twigs lashing at his face every other step.
Trinity: Sid! Sid I don't think she's down -
Sid: She's down here , trust me.
He pushes past the final few trees and stumbles straight on to a thin hidden railway track which curls around the housing.Sid turns to the right to see Sharon facing away from him, standing still.
Trinity looks on confused as Sid begins to walk over to her but stops when some light begins to shine through the overhanging trees. Sid's eyes widen as he starts up after her again but she starts to walk away.
Sid: Sharon, where are you going?
Trinity: Stop her!
the light gets bigger until it practically blinds all three of them but Sharon continues to walk on undeterred. A few metres away from the train now and Sid manages to grab her from behind and toss her to the side against a large tree before diving out of the way into a small fence. Trinity rushes over and looks at Sid who is huffing and shakes his head clear.
Trinity: You ok?
Sid:Yeah...check on Sharon.
Trinity looks over at Sharon who is just lying on the floor motionless but wearing something that she has never worn before...a large crucifix around her neck. Sid looks at it then back at Trinity who just narrows her eyes back and exhales heavily.
Trinty: Will she be ok?
Sid(shaking his head): I dunno.
The scene fades in to show a large hospital room with only a single bed inside and a small armchair where Sid sits. His feet are propped up against the bed and he's elbow is resting on the arm rest with his head balancing on his fist. The person in the bed begins to stir causing Sid to open his eyes and awaken from the light sleep he was in.
Sid( looking over at the patient):Sharon, You awake?
Sharon turns to look at Sid. Her eyes barely open and bloodshot to hell.
Sharon( groggily): You're still here?
Sid brings his feet down and leans forward, holding her hand.
Sid: Still here.
There's a small silence as Sharon shuts her eyes for a few seconds.
Sid: How you feeling?
Sharon: ...I feel heavy.
Sharon groans as she opens her eyes to look at Sid again.
Sharon: I feel heavy. Can't move.
Sid kisses the back of her hand and rubs it against his cheek. She untwines her fingers from his and turns her hand so her fingertips on on his face.
Sharon: You need a shave.
Sid: I'll have a shave when you have one.
Sharon playfully scratches him on the cheek causing Sid to laugh as he pulls back. He comes forward again and kisses her palm.
Sharon: It feels like I've been here forever.
Sid: I know but this is the best place for you. Sooner or later these guys will find out what's wrong with you and the baby. And then...they'll kick it's ass.
Sharon smiles back at Sid, looking as if she's about to laugh.
Sharon: All you ever think about is violence.
Sid: Sharon,I'm a wrestler. What did you expect?
Sharon: I know but you're not wrestling now are you? Why can't you just be Sid Frankenstein instead of SW's Sid"The Man" for a little while?
Sid looks down at the floor then back up with and locks eyes with Sharon.
Sid(nodding): Ok. I'll be Sid. Fuck SW for the next few hours.
Just then there's a knock at the door.
Sid: Want to bet that's someone from SW?
Sharon: Nope. It has to be. It's the law.
The door opens and Trinity pops her head through the gap and smiles.
Trinity: Hey guys.
She walks in followed by Flame and the young man Flame calls Harry.
Flame: Hey Sharon. How you feeling?
Sharon goes to adjust herself in the bed so she's sitting up but Sid places a hand on her forearm to tell her to stop.
Sid(turning to the others): just the same.
Sid looks around the empty room then raises from his chair.
Sid: Let me go out and find you guys some chairs.
Sid takes a step towards the door but hears a loud bang on the other side.
Voice: diggity dawg!!
The door opens a little bit but then shuts again. After a second bang the door opens a little wider but then shuts once more. Everyone including the dazed Sharon look on at the door, intrigued at what's goin' on. With one last bang the door flies open to show Jason Nigh in the door way with two chairs dangling from each arm.
Jason: Little help?
Sid's face turns to one of pure anger as Jason stumbles into the room.
Sid: What is he doing here?
Jason looks up at Sid and drops three of the chairs and holds the fourth up like a lion tamer.
Jason: Just came to see how the little lady is doing. That's all.
Jason leans to the right to look around Sid and at Sharon.
Jason: How you feelin' love?
Sharon(smiling): Not too bad.
Jason gives her a quick smile then goes back to his upright position.
Jason(slowly lowering the chair to the floor): Now I'm just goin' to sit down. There's no need to panic or to get violent.
Jason sits down on the chair and crosses his legs. Sid's eyes still fixed on him as he walks back to his own chair and sits. The others grab a chair and sit apart from Flame who steps up and sits on the backrest and leans back against the wall.
Sharon: Well this is...nice.
Another second silence.
Sid: I'm going to take a shit.
Sid quickly stands up and walks out of the room taking with him the high level of tension.
Jason( sighing): The man holds on to a grudge like a chimp with it's damn banana.
Flame: I thought that given time,he would learn to trust you.
Jason: Guess not.
Harry: Can ya blame 'im though?
Jason turns in his seat and looks back at Harry.
Harry: I said, can ya blame 'im?
Jason: Well, yeah. I can.
Harry: Oh come on man. You're fucking involved with Gwenivere jordan.
Jason stares back, obviously angry at his statement.
Harry: Hey man, I got no beef wit' you and to be hones' I don't care what happened in your love life but I'm just sayin' I understan' where the guy is coming from.
Trinity: I guess you're right.
Jason turns to Trinity, surprised.
Trinity Oh no, don't get me wrong. I know it is not your fault. But Sid just isn't the kind of person to see sense in that. It's too easy for him to hate you.
Sharon: That actually is very true.
The others now look at Sharon, who they all practically forgot about.
Sharon: He'll come around though. Don't you worry. I'll be the one to make him see the real Jason.
Jason smiles back.
...Another second of silence...
Jason: Hey, how's that sack of shit in tummy doing?
The scene changes to the hallway where Sid steps out of the gents toilet and begins to walk back to Sharon's room. He takes a few steps and turns the corner to see Harry walking towards him. He's staring down at the floor and thinking, obviously unaware that Sid is in front of him.Sid stops and crosses his arms as Harry continues to walk towards him. He approaches but stops a few feet away from Sid and looks up to see Sid looking back.
Sid: Where you going?you just got here.
Harry: I was just droppin' them off. I gotta meeting to get to.
Sid:: A meeting
Harry cocks his head at Sid.
Harry: Yeah. With an ol' friend.
Sid offers his hand which Harry shakes as they both slowly pass each other.
Sid: Good bye.
They both walk on but Sid turns after a few steps and looks back.
Sid gives Harry a wave as he takes another corner in the hallway and walks over to Sharon's room where he can hear some noises. He narrows his eyes and listens for a few seconds before opening the door. Sid walks in to see Flame and Trinity standing to the left and Jason looking over an unconscious Sharon.
Sid(walking over): What the fuck did you do?!
Jason turns to answer but Sid shoves him out of the way into the wall.
Jason: Hey! I was trying to help her you asshole.
Sid: Just fuck off Jason.
Flame( pointing at Sharon): Will you two cut it out and focus.
Trinity rushes for the door.
Sid: Where you going?
Trinity: To get help!
With that she exits. Sid turns to Flame and Jason.
Sid: What happened?
Jason: She -
Jason slowly closes his mouth, his face showing obvious signs of frustration.
Flame: She just had this weird spasm attack. Jason tried to see what was wrong but she just went limp.
Sid looks at Jason.
Sid: You touched her?
Jason: I just held her by the shoulders to try and calm her down.
Sid: You did this?!
Jason: Woah, woah, woah. I didn't do shit, ok? Will you stop trying to throw everything at me?
Sid: How about throwing this?
With that Sid throws a punch at Jason who quickly ducks out of the way.
Sid: You stay away from Her!
Just then Trinity comes back into the room followed by two doctors. They rush over to Sharon and check on her.
Doctor 1: I'm afraid you may have to clear the room.
Sid: No! I'm staying right here.
Trinity grabs Sid by the arm and tries to bring him out but he doesn't budge.
Trinity(quietly): You'll only get in the way Sid.
Sid gives Sharon one last look then looks back at Trinity
Trinity: Everything will be fine, just wait outside with us, yeah?
Sid huffs then nods as he follows the others out of the room. The screen now fades to black...
A green flash is shown on the screen in the shape of a life support machine.
Another this time the zig-zag is smaller...
Another now the line is practically straight apart from two small jogs...
The line now is dead straight as a loud and constant beep can be heard...
