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..
The scene slowly fades in to show the hallway of the hospital. Sid,Trinity, Flame and Jason Nigh stand in silence outside Sharon's room. Sid is pacing back and forth, and whispering a prayer into the air through his hands which are clasped together in front of his mouth. Flame looks behind him at the wall and slowly leans back against it with a huff. Jason and Trinity sit across the hall from the doorway beside each other. There's a seconds silence as the camera pans across towards the door which opens as soon as its on screen. A doctor steps out and gently closes the door behind him and turns to look at the group. He sighs and slowly blinks, clearly having bad news but Sid still hopeful steps forward and places a hand on the shoulder of the doctor.
Sid: How is she, Doctor? Did you figure out what happened?
Doctor( quietly): Mr. Frankenstein, I hate to tell you this but...
He's eyes look over every body for a second. Each other them looking down at the floor as his eyes met theirs. He looks back at Sid who looks back with anxiety brewing up inside him.
Doctor: Both Mrs Frankenstein and The Baby are dead. There was nothing we could do for either of them.
Sid doesn't seem to react and instead just stares back at the doctor. Jason leans forward in his chair and cringes his already closed eyes, hearing what he already knew confirmed obviously taking it's tole. After a few more moments Sid shakes his head and bites his lower lip as he lunges at the doctor and pins him up against the wall.
Sid: What the fuck do you mean there was nothing you could do for them? What kind of fucking doctor are you?
Flame, Trinity, and Jason all grab Sid from behind and hoist him off of the doctor. Trinity let's go and opens her mouth to say something comforting but can't think of anything.Jason and Flame just manage to keep him back.
Doctor: I'm really sorry Sir, but Mrs Frankenstein was already gone by the time we got there. Neither one of them could be revived.
Sid: Did you even try you fucking bastard? Or did you just let her die?
Doctor: Please Mr. Frankenstein, I know that you're grieving right now, but we did EVERYTHING that we could. No please don't make me have to get security to escort you out of the building.
With that, the doctor walks off leaving the four alone once again. As the doctor disappears around the corner Sid relaxes a little and they let him go. Sid closes his eyes tightly and walks over to a wall. He huffs loudly and strikes the wall with the bottom of his fist filling the hall with the echo of the impact.
Sid(whispering to himself): I can't believe she's gone.I can't believe my baby is gone.
Trinity(stepping forward): Sid, maybe you should just go and get some air right now.
Jason: She's right man. You could probably use some.
Sid turns from the wall to look at Jason. His eyes glazed over. Jason leans back slightly, obviously realising he should have just kept his mouth shut.
Sid: YOU! You killed Them!
Jason: What? What the fuck are you talking about man?
Sid: It's all your fault!.This is All Your Fault!
Trinity: Sid, just calm down!
Flame: Yeah . You know Jason didn't cause any of this.
Sid: Bullshit! It's all his fault!
Sid rushes at Jason and forces him back against a wall, pushing his left forearm across Jason's throat. He tries to throw a right hand at Jason, but Jason ducks out of the way, and Sid's fist goes straight through the wall with a loud crack which could have easily been Jason's skull.Sid pulls his hand out of the wall and as if nothing had happened rushes for Jason once more. Sid is just about to attack when Flame grabs him around the torso and holds on tightly.
Flame: Enough! That's enough!
Jason: I think it would probably be better if I left.
Trinity: You're probably right. I'll give you a call later tonight Jason,
Jason nods at Trinity and turns away from the group, making his way down the hall towards the elevator.
Sid: I'm gonna kill you Jason!Do you hear me? I'M GOING TO FUCKING KILL YOU!
Jason carries on walking, not taking any notice. He just walks around the corner and out of sight.
Flame(shoving Sid away): What the fuck is your problem?
Sid( turning back to face Flame): How can you ask me that, Flame? Sharon is dead! as well as My baby!
Flame: I know , but you know just like I do that Jason had nothing to do with that! Hell, he tried to help them!
Sid: That's bullshit! Jason's only interested in helping one person, and person only.....HIMSELF!!
Trinity: That might be how he was before, Sid, but not anymore. He's changed.
Sid: He's got you both brainwashed.
Flame: Now THAT'S bullshit Sid. Jason hasn't done one thing wrong since he got here, and you're still condemning him.
Sid: Because I know him Flame.We all know he's in love with Gwenivere Jordan!And I don't Trust Him! I know what people like him are capable of.
Flame: You forgot something Sid. I've known Jason a HELL of a lot longer than you have. Long before he came to Sin.And believe me, the Jason Nigh that we're seeing now, that's the real Jason.
And as for his personal love life,that is neither of of your bussines or mine!.And The sooner you admit it, the better off we'll all be.
Sid: What the fuck ever.
Flame: Look, Sid. You're upset right now, and that's more than understandable. It's going to take you some time to get over this. And we're going to give you plenty of time. But sooner or later, you're going to have to come to terms with Jason.
Flame then turns to Trinity.
Flame: I think we'd better get going, give him some time to himself.
Sid: Good idea.
Trinity: We'll talk to you later Sid. If you need anything--
Sid: Just go .
Reluctantly, Trinity nods her head and turns and follows Flame. Sid watches them leave and takes a deep breath as he turns and walks into Sharon's room.
Sid stares down at the floor as the door quietly shuts behind him with a click. After a moment he looks up to see Sharon, lying lifeless on top of the bed. The sheet neatly tucked in around her. He takes a big gulp and slowly walks over, grabbing a chair and dragging it over to the side of her bed. He sits down and stares at her face for a second.
Sid(quietly): Hi Sharon.
Sid sniffs and rubs his nose, obviously starting to get emotional.
Sid: It's me. Sid...
He shuts his eyes tightly once again and reaches forward, grabbing her hand.
Sid: I'm sorry.
He looks up, tears welling in his eyes.
Sid: I'm sorry I didn't save you and our baby. I didn't try hard enough. I...I didn't know what to do.
A tear streams down his face as plenty more form around his eyes.
Sid: I was supposed to take care of both you and the baby. Lot of good that did.
Seconds silence as he takes a deep breath.
Sid: This...this can't happen. You can't go...How can I live without you Sharon? You're the reason I get out of bed in the mornings...you're the reason I breath...You're my life Sharon...You can't be gone. You can't. You have to stay. You have to stay for me. God can't take you away from me...I won't let him.
He holds on to her hand tighter and kisses it.
Sid: Sharon...you will always be mine...and I will always be yours.
With that Sid leans forward and kisses Sharon on the forehead. The Scene slowly fades back to the hallway where we see two very familiar faces standing in front of the door...
Zimdela: Well Gwen...It looks as though you were right.
Gwenivere turns her glance to Zimdela and nods.
Gwenivere: Of Course i'm right. The Fucking Slut has kicked the Bucket has'nt She?
Zimdela: A shame this is. She had such lovely legs..i'll miss them..i enjoyed dreaming about them..as i chased her around with a
Chainsaw.but oh well.let see what other fun we can have instead
Gwen and Zimdela turn around make their way through to the elevators.They come across a man who is being wheeled through the lobby in a wheelchair. The nurse stops as Zimdela approaches the man. He kneels down, eye to eye with him. He looks at him long and hard, almost as if she is trying to look into his very soul.
Zimdela: How very sad. Not much longer now.....
Man: I don't know what you're talking about lady. I'm fit as a fiddle. I'm on my way out of here right now, in fact.
Zimdela: You will never make it through those doors.....
The nurse has an angry look on her face, and just as she is about to call for security, Gwen grabs ahold of Zimdela's arm.
Gwen: Come now, Zimmy. Leave the old Bastard,alone.
Zimdela smiles at the man. An eerie smile that is enough to send chills down your spine. He then turns and walks away with Gwen, walking down the hallway towards the elevator. As they are boarding the elevator, they hear shouts of alarm coming from the lobby.
Nurse: Oh my god!He's fallen down,oh no he's having a heart attack! Get a doctor NOW!!!
The sounds of the medical staff hurrying to save the mans life fade away as the doors to the elevator close. As they elevator makes it's way up, Zimdela let's out an evil laugh.
Zimdela: Told you Gwen,that leaving that Dildo out there would do some serious damage.....
The scene slowly fades in to show a large stretching cemetery. Showing the clear white headstones, many with bouquets of long stemmed roses placed down on the ground and some small gifts that people have left their loved ones. It continues to pan until it shows a small gathering of people. It looks to be the ending of a funeral as most of the teary eyed members are slowly making their way out of the cemetery along the smooth gravel footpaths. The crowd disperses to show a lone figure standing beside the open grave, staring down at the pearl white coffin below. The figure is dressed in a black tracksuit bottom and a dark navy hoody with the hood pulled over the man's head. it's Sid...who else?
Sid: I thought we'd be side by side on our death beds. Die, next to each other, holding hands.
Sid kicks a piece of grass and sniffs heavily.
Sid: I guess this is better in a way.
Sid smirks a little as his eyes scan the top of the coffin.
Sid: You can remember me as what I am now...well a couple of nights ago.
Voice: And what was that?
Sid looks behind him to see Jason Nigh walking up from behind him, dressed in his usual except he's wearing a white shirt underneath the trench coat for the funeral. Sid huffs and looks back down at Sharon's coffin.
Sid: Fuck off Jason. I have'nt got time for you.
Jason: Ain't like I'm here for you.
Jason steps beside Sid and looks down into the huge gaping hole.
Jason: It's this little princess I'm here to see.
Sid: You talk about her as if she's your damn sister.
Jason: Well she kind of was. I mean, I've known her for a long time.
Jason looks over at Sid who doesn't stare back.
Jason: I've known her longer than you for starters.
Sid: But you didn't know her the way I did.
Jason: True, and I ain't goin' to try and beat you in the grieving race. You win that hands down. But she meant somethin' to me.
Voice: Me too.
Both Sid and Jason look at each other and narrow their eyes. After a second they both look behind them to see Corey Page approaching dressed in a smart black suit topped with thin shades.
Jason: Well, I'll be.
Corey: What? Didn't think I would miss her funeral did you?
Sid: No, yet I'm still shocked to see you.
Corey steps up on the other side of Sid and a second of silence falls down over the three of them. Corey's eyes are fixed on the coffin.
Corey: Hard to take in ain't it?
Sid: I'm not trying to take it in.
Corey turns his head slightly to look at Sid.
Sid: If I do, I'll probably forget how to live...
Corey: I hear you man. Look Sid,we've had our problems i have to say this..This is some tough shit,i'm sorry Sid.I know what she meant to you.
A few more footsteps can be heard approaching and within seconds Trinity, Harry and Flame all step up next to the grave, Trinity's eyes slightly wet from her tears. Jason puts an arm around her shoulders and squeezes her tight. Sid looks up and around at all the people who have stuck around.
Sid: Nice to see so many people here.
Corey: Yeah. That's the kinda girl Sharon was. She just...brought people together.
With that Sid and Jason look at each other . Sid offers a hand out of sight of everyone else and Jason reaches out and shakes it and with that shake wiping the slate clean.
Trinity: So what do we do now? Do we say a prayer?
Jason(looking around): I don't know. Flame?
Flame doesn't answer and looks at Sid.
Flame: No. You decide.
Sid reaches to his side and holds Flame's hand and extends his other hand to Jason who hesistates for a second then accepts. Slowly they all join hands until it reaches Harry and Corey who are a little too far away from each other.
Voice: Maybe I can help?
The whole group looks over to see Tony Millennia slowly walking over in a sharp as hell suit.
Corey: What the fuck is he doing here?
Sid: I dunno...
Trinity : I called him.
Corey looks at her angrily.
Trinity:Because he knew Sharon as well. They were friends, and no matter what he's done to you -
Tony: Which always gives me pleasure by the way.
Corey: Shut up Tony!
Corey looks back at him and sighs.
Sid: Corey...Let it go.The man is most certainly in love with himself..... And i'd Love to take away that Title that he holds so dearly...But This ain't the time or place.
Corey looks back at Tony who cocks his head to the side as if to say "what do you say?"
Corey: Ok...for now.
Tony steps into the circle completing it. They all once again hold hands and bow their heads.
Sid: Do i have to say it?
Flame: Looks like it.
Sid(to himself): God..Remember this..i'm not doing this for you...i'm doing it for Sharon..My Issues with you are far from over..
Sid: Dear Lord...thank you for blessing us, if only for a few short years with what can only be defined as an angel...Sharon was definitely one of the if not the most caring, sweet and compassionate people I have ever met and to ever meet most likely. In her short stay here on this earth she touched the lives of many people and grabbed a hold of my heart...and is yet to let go. I know she's with you now,with our little one, and probably looking down on us with a big smile.
Sid looks up at the sky and sighs.
Sid: Please take care of them like I couldn't. Amen.
The group fall under another silence , all their hands let go as the scene fades slowly fades out and fall by their sides.
