Description: Natural ability or Hard Work? Which is superior? Which is the path to victory? Can one who has molded and chiseled themselves from nothing beat one who started as a masterpiece in their own mind? Is a prodigal warrior more powerful than one forged in the fire the training grounds? "The Main Man" Hunter Grand, a man possessing natural gifts beyond measure, will find his prodigious talents tested by Rainbowmania itself, as Rainbow Mika, the grassroots phenomenon herself, seeks to prove that hard work trumps all! The Spirit of the Gods will prove which Virtue trumps all!
The Soaring Spirit Tournament just got GRANDER.
Striding along with his too expensive for anyone to touch robe and surrounded by his entire legion of groupies and women that he might be paying to hang around him, is none other than "The Main Man" Hunter Grand. In all of his grandiose stupor, the wrestler uses a couple of his women as stairs to climb up and onto the apron of the ring.
The crowd's boos are making it hard to hear what he's saying back to them but it is probably nothing more than snide remarks and comebacks. He barely seems to register what is happening around him as he's focused on making sure that his entrance to the ring is as annoying and intolerable as possible. Mind Games!
Hunter Grand takes his sweet time pulling off his robe before tossing it backwards and down to his escorts. He gives a mighty Mr. America wave to the crowd that is definitely not feeling his presence before ducking between the ropes and into the ring itself. There he poses as if he's God's Grandest Gift to Sports and Fighting Entertainment.
Thwew ia no "grander" part of wrestling tradition than that of the high and mighty heel facing down with the savior of the common people face. This is the purity of wrestling; no tables, fire, or cages, just two opponents stepping into the ring where the crowd knows immediately which side they intend to root for.
For Mika Nanakawa's part, as she watches The Main Man Hunter Grand step down to the ring, she is utterly thrilled by the mastery of his performance. Even drowned out so his words can't even reach the crowd's attention he has managed to get all the stands to bury him beneath a chorus of boos.
Rainbow Mika will have to step up her game.
With Grand showing off at center stage, the buxom blonde brawler bursts forth from her entrance with microphone in hand, provided just moments ago by a savvy member of the BFW crew. "I don't know about you all, but I'm beginning to wonder if The Plain Man knows that his family's entire fortune isn't going to be enough to buy him any real friends!" The traditional pause to allow the crowd to offer their own cheers as punctuation. "I came all the way over here to Mexico for two reasons: to help out the wonderful people of Pueblo Thunderfoot and to put on a great show for all the Rainbowmaniacs out there, but it seems like I need to add a third thing to that list: teach Hunter Grand that when it comes to wrestling, hardwork and perseverence beat out cash every time!"
With that last pull for pop, the microphone is surrepticiously handed off to one of the crew as Mika comes walking down the walkway, basking in the crowd's attention as she blows kisses and slaps extended hands from the crowd. Upon arriving at the ring, she hauls herself up by the ropes and slips into the squared circle. Her path carries her along the edge of the ring, waving to the fans before she hauls herself up onto the turnbuckle, winking as she blows a kiss with dead on aim to a fan in the crowd with a Rainbowmania shirt, then turns just enough to give both crowd and camera a good view as she slaps her ass.

Hunter Grand is actually taking a moment to argue with BFW Staff about why he wasn't allowed a microphone. Of course, he didn't ask for one but he refuses to take the blame for such things. He's barely even paying attention to anything beyond the pointing and yelling at random staff people for their indiscretion. There's even a barely audible "Shameless Favoritism!" that might be heard by those that are close enough to him and the ring to be able to hear him shouting such things.
Finally, though, Hunter Grand turns around to notice that HIS ring has been invaded by way too many curves. He almost looks at her in a creepy manner, taking a second to rub his hands together and lick his lips. There's a moment of obscene gesturing to hopefully keep the timekeeper and even Mika off-guard long enough for him to jump right into it.
Grand wastes only one more moment, before he takes off across the ring and jumps into a leaping clothesline that's aimed to take Mika's head off. He's wearing quite the big grin as he sails, arm outstretched to make short work of his beloved (by millions! and MILLIONS!) opponent!
And all this before the bell!

Out of nowhere, a decapitating clothesline!
By the time that Mika turns to see that Grand has decided to start the match on his own, before the referee had even finished climbing the steps up into the ring, there's no real time to move, no great opportunity to get out of the way. As a young Rainbowmaniac in the crowd bellows for Mika to get out of the way, she's taken clean in the throat by the ambush assault. From the look on her face it seems that the one blow might have been enough to put the wrestling superstar out from the match, she even looks about ready to fall backwards off the turnbuckle.
...Until a closer look is given. One of Mika's arms has managed to snare its way around Hunter Grand's waist, the knockback from the blow was because she was trying to absorb the whole force of the Main Man without letting him get away, putting her own body on the line to achieve her goal.
"NOT UNTIL THE BELL RINGS," Mika's normally husky voice comes out slightly crackled from the blow to the throat, but it would seem that has no hope keeping her quiet. With clever timing from the officiator, the bell suddenly rings to signal the real start of the match.
And Mika moves quick, twisting around on the turnbuckle to slip in behind Hunter, clenching both arms tight around his midsection as she launches off backward into a perfect arc. A flying german suplex!

The Grand One has a little bit of time during Mika's witty banter to prepare to mount himself some sort of defense. It isn't long but one with as Grand as mind as Grand should definitely be able to come up with some sort of plan in the interim. That's why he doesn't have a particular statement to respond with. He prefers, at least right now, to let his actions speak louder than Rainbow Mike's words.
Grand doesn't have enough timing and even skill to be able to get completely out of the flying German Suplex. Instead, he pushes off with his own feet to get some of the momentum under control even as he's yanked with Mika. He throws his arms back and behind his head just moments before he's slammed into the ring and he winces upon painful impact. But that's exactly where he wants to be. Right there.
Using the impact to roll himself free of Mika's grip. He's only away from her for a half-moment before he's pouncing back at her, hoping to catch her before she's fully recovered from her epic German Suplex event. He immediately goes for a Dragon Sleeper Hold!
OUT OF NOWHERE!

After a huge start to the match, Mika is already beginning to feel the excitement building in the crowd, clean hits or not. Words aren't even needed at a moment like this, as Mika instead focuses on trying to get back up to her feet, only to find Grand rushing back in.
No room to move, no chance to duck out of the way, as Grand's arms lash out around her neck, the gorgeous grappler goes for protection, shoving her left arm up in front of her neck, preventing Grand from actually managing to place pressure on her wind pipe. The hold still hurts, her defense combined with Hunter's attack grinding her shoulder and wrenching her elbow, but she has just enough leverage to break the hold and roll out of the way.
As she pops back up to her feet, she offers the Main Man a wink as she blows him a kiss. "Nice try, but it'll take a better man than you to take my breath away." While her words still linger in the air over the crowd, she twists around, locks her legs up tight like the spring on a mouse trap, then launches herself up into the air ass first. Up, up, up she goes before gravity pulls the Mika missile back down at an arc aimed to catch the Grand man himself right in the face with a booty bomb.

The Grand One is having a bit of a fit in the meantime. When the hold is broken, Grand stomps around the ring for a moment. He even goes over to the referee to show his arm. There's nothing wrong with it but he's definitely trying to get some attention or at least a chance to take the ref out. The ref is smart enough to keep his distance though and waves Hunter back to the match.
Hunter's frown gets turned upside down when he turns back to his opponent to see that she's sailing down at him ass first. The world slows down for an incredibly long moment as he just kind of stares at the booty that's headed in his direction. His lips curl up into a smile and his head even tilts to the side, admiring the view a bit too much.
"Grandtastic." is almost said with a hushed whisper before his eyes go wide and he realizes what's about to happen. "Oh shit." And Grand takes a leaping dive out of the way, rolling across the mat and back up to his feet so that he can put his weight on those ropes.
"Psst. Hey Cheeks!" Hunter flashes a smile and pushes off the ropes, running a bit before taking a leap into the air and hoping timing will allow him to catch Mika getting up, with the soles of his Dropkicking boots.
"Grand The F(@*#@ Out!"

There is a fine art to using your butt as a weapon, and it's fair to say that Rainbow Mika is among a rare list of masters in that art. Throwing yourself backwards at someone has a tendency to leave you blind and open, unless you know exactly what you're doing and use the correct amount of preparation. The fact that she went sailing right past Grand and now has the crude wrestler aiming to put his bootprint on her just makes it good for Mika that she chose caution over recklessness.
As Rainbow Mika is pushing back to her feet, she still has one hand on the ground, with a bout of quick thinking (and reflexes), she twists her right leg to get her foot on the ground and then kicks, using her palm as a pivot point to allow her to roll right out of the way, leaving The Main Man to miss his soft landing.
This is an opportunity to move. With Grand hopefully too shaken from his overzealous leap to have proper time to react, Mika lunges in from the side, aiming catch him off guard by a reckless headbutt aimed to clock him clean in the nose before she twists her foot in behind his leg and elbows him in the chest, aiming to put him flat on his back, possibly with a bloody nose.

Overzealous antics are not always the best approach when dealing with another wrestler that actually has some skill. To ask Grand, though, Rainbow Mika has been cheating this entire time! Not only that, but the referee is also on her side! This is not the kind of behavior that Hunter Grand sees fit to condone! He's clearly going to have to do something about this!
Right after he stops his nose from bleeding.
Grand's face gets cracked by the arrival of a tremendous headbutt. He goes down to the mat, wincing and twisting in pain. That elbow might've cracked something, as well. He groans, turning over and holding his face as he gets to his knees. He struggles to get to his feet, wobbly walking this way and that, making sure to bump into the referee accidentally.
He only needs the referee distracted for a half-moment because his senses and wits are still about him more than he's letting on. He wobble-swings once more before turning towards Mika, dropping his hands and aiming an explosion of both Red Mist and Blood from within his mouth! It gets aimed right at Mika's face in an attempt to even the score! And maybe even give The Grand One a chance to mount an offense.

Blood is a reality of fighting, it doesn't pay to be squeamish. Sometimes the blood you get on you is your own, sometimes it belongs to your opponent, but you can't let that get to you.
It's slightly different, however, when all of that blood is being spat at you in an effort to blind you. Getting hit by Red Mist is enough to put a wrestler in an incredibly bad spot where, unable to see, they're completely at the mercy of their opponent. Most fighters, let alone wrestlers, haven't exactly trained themselves in how to fight blind.
Being placed in this dangerous position, Rainbow Mika summons up every last bit of strength she can to leap back the moment she recognizes just what's about to come for her. A giant red cloud forming in the air where she was just moments ago doesn't even get faint flecks of red on her bright blues and whites.
"Nice try, but it's going to take a lot more than your cheating tricks to put a stop to me," Mika offers with a grin on her face as she begins to circle. "You've got money, you've got talent, but you're lacking the most important thing of all: heart! And the fans know it. The fans can feel it. Rainbowmania isn't going to even slow down when faced with a bump in the road like you!"

Frustration is obvious. Grand is wiping off his face because he can't believe he missed with the mist! He had been saving that up for the right moment and instead of it actually helping him to put this chick away, he's finding that the entire crowd is starting to get even more behind her! This is madness! This cannot go unchecked!
Grand centers himself for a moment while listening to Mika's entire speech. He narrows his eyes and looks around before glaring back at her. "WHO THE HELL IS RAINBOWMANIA?!" It would seem that The Grand One hasn't put two and eight together because he is not picking up on what she is putting down. Either that or he's just being oblivious on purpose. Either way, he's running out of options.
Grand rushes for Mika, leaping up the moment he gets close enough, aiming to grab her by the back of the head, whilst he pulls both of his knees up and together. His body drops backwards to slam into the mat, whilst he hopes and dreams to crush the face of Rainbowmania with his knees!

The most important aspect of grappling, from a technical rather than a performance standpoint, is knowing how to maintain your balance. If you can get your opponent to the ground, you have the advantage; if they get you to the ground, you're in trouble. All fighter hold some form of wide stance, but among wrestlers its often the widest, with arms spread out, rather than held close in to ward off strikes.
Good balance is why Rainbow Mika isn't immediately thrown off the moment Grand leaps on her. Good balance is why Mika is able to whip her arm up between Grand's knees and her face. Good balance is why Mika doesn't go tumbling when Grand drops back. His knees squish her forearm up against her cheek, her lips forcibly pursed awkwardly to the side as she holds steady through the pain and the weight of it all.
As Hunter hits the mat, Mika straightens herself up from her low crouch, fire burning in her eyes. "RAINBOWMANIA ISN'T JUST ONE PERSON, IT'S THE MOVEMENT OF PASSION THAT BUILDS TOWARD GREATNESS! WITH THE SPIRIT OF RAINBOWMANIA BEHIND ME, ALL THE RAINBOWMANIACS OUT THERE ARE IN MY CORNER, PUSHING ME TO THE VERY PINNACLE OF WRESTLING!" The crowd goes wild as Rainbow Mika's words strike the heart of fandom. She gives Grand time to get back to his feet during his speech, eyes deadlocked on him as she waits until just the right moment to shout. "SO IF I'VE GOT RAINBOWMANIA IN MY CORNER, WHY DON'T YOU SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT IN YOUR'S?!"
The gauntlet has been thrown, and the moment its metaphorically hits the ground, she goes flying for The Main Man, planting one boot at the heel, letting her use it as a pivot point as she twists around with a vicious backfist aimed dead on for Grand's temple. Another kick with her feet foot, another backfist, another attempt to leave Hunter's bell rung so hard he's got no hope of responding as she plants her feet and hip checks Grand in the gut with all the force her ass can provide.

Perhaps it is all the yelling. Perhaps it is the fact that the entire crowd is behind Rainbow Mike. Perhaps there is just something about Hunter Grand that is proving that he is, as they say, all talk. Either way, whatever the reason is, Hunter Grand finds himself in the air and leaping to try and catch the incoming effects of Rainbowmania so that he can show just what he has in his corner.
Instead, he catches a fist to the face.
This launches Grand into a brutal assault from which he gets rocked this way and that way, his body shaking and shuddering from each impact of Mika's fists and feet. He's barely standing, his head shaking from the onslaught, as he notices that Battle Booty is headed for him. He can't move, though, and all he can do is get sent sailing against the ropes. His body bounces off them and crumples right down to the mat. His arms and legs splayed out as the pain courses through his body.
A clean blow, and after a challenge like that, the crowd goes wild as Rainbow Mika clearly takes the upper hand in the fight. The fight has already been explosive thus far, but now it's beginning to reach a point where the crowd favorite might just be ready to pull everything around to a win.
Of course, Mika doesn't believe that. Not yet. No, she gave Grand one hell of a hit, but he's not nearing the end of his rope, at least not in terms of motivation. It's not easy to put down a man with as much self-importance as the Main Man Hunter Grand with a hip check or a backfist.
But even if she's not quite in the optimal position, she can't just let up now. With the crowd on her side, she has to press the advantage, keep the match flowing strong. After giving a quick smack to her ass for the crowd, she approaches her downed opponent, grins, and aims a quick, falling leg drop for his neck.

Hunter Grand's body convulses after the sudden and powerful leg drop that connects with his neck. He can't help but to roll after such a tremendous blow. The mat has some give but not a lot when it comes to getting crushed beneath the great strength and weight of Rainbow Mika!
The Grand One takes a few moments to get to his feet, using the ropes to give himself some time and to help keep himself standing upright. He's still out of it but he's attempting to see if he can't get his vision to clear.
"The Grand One thinks if that's all you've got then you're going to be in for one hell of a rude awakening, Cheeks." Hunter Grand finally manages to stand up on his own two feet. There's blood dripping from his face and it's just not a pretty sight. Still, though, he stands up nice and tall (ish) and holds his own. He just reaches up with one hand and extends that middle finger of his. Which he then uses to beckon the Cheeky One to bring it on.

This is a terrible idea.
Mika knows full well that someone like Grand doesn't just try to pull you in with a taunt like that because he wants to see what you're capable of, he's clearly got something planned for her. She's not foolish enough to believe that she completely outclasses Hunter Grand in the ring enough that she can be completely reckless, but...
The fans in the crowd are cheering.
This is a moment where she can either fall into the challenge and hope she really does have the skill and luck to come out of this on top or back down and disappoint the fans. In wrestling it's not whether or not you win or lose, it's about whether or not you gave the fans what they want. Give them something incredible, and even if you're pinned at the end of the match, you'll live on forever in their memories.
"LET'S GO!" Rainbow Mika's voice carries easily over the noise of the crowd as she sets eyes on Hunter and, heedless of the danger, launches herself up into the air. Her arc aims to catch Hunter's head between her thighs, her whole body twisting about in the air with her arms extended, aiming to rip him off his feet, flip him about over her body, and then let go, sending him flying down on a collision course with the mat.

Hunter Grand's smug smile disappears the moment Rainbowmania starts to make matters worse. And worse. And worse. The noise of the crowd in support of Rainbow Mika drowns out even his own inflated ego. He almost watches his egotistical aura flicker with the possibility of no longer existing. It fades in and out before his vary eyes. And for a moment, the briefest of moments, Hunter Grand looks worried.
It has everything to do with the fact that Rainbow Mika is in the air and sailing towards The Grand One with so much heart and skill that it is a wonder Grand even stays in the ring. He plants his feet, almost bracing himself for impact, as Mika's legs wrap around his head and squeeze. Hunter groans in pain as he can feel the muscles there closing around him. His eyes close in preparation for what's to come and his arms flail for the briefest of moments. Then?
Hunter Grand moans. For pleasure.
The moment his feet are lifted off the ground due to Mika's incredible strength and agility, The Grand One's eyes pop open and it is obvious he's smiling, even if his entire face can't be seen. As Mika's body twists and carries His Royal Grandness with her, there's a flurry of movements that makes it a bit difficult to see. As their bodies come back down towards the mat, Hunter Grand has twisted himself out of her grip and grabs her head as he drops towards the mat. He immediately goes down to one knee, aiming to slam Mika's back across that raised knee, pull her back up with him as he stands, spins and drops once more to the mat, bringing the back of her skull across his shoulder! The One Night Only!!
His Royal Grandness immediately hops up from the mat after such impact to look out at the crowd and throws his hands up! Boo /that/!
That was bad. Mika knew that she was going right into a trap, but more importantly than the fact that she's in tremendous pain right now, she felt the moment and did what had to be done. There's no way she could have turned down a direct challenge like that, not when she was clearly in the lead. It would have been an insult to her opponent and an insult to the crowd.
Now there is a part of her that regrets going that far for all of this. Well, all the parts of her that now hurt like hell regret this, but you don't get into fighting as a profession without being willing to risk some serious bodily harm.
Struggling faintly, she pushes back up to her feet, a steely look in her eyes as she sets her sights on Grand. "You've got some skill... but you still don't have enough to put me down for the count!" With a surge of motion, she rushes in at Grand, eyes set on the Main Man, looking as if every single moment of this struggle no longer weighed down upon her. She hauls her arm up, slipping it in around his neck from behind while moving her right hand in to create a lock right on his windpipe. Both arms wrench tight, squeezing at his throat, aiming to pump every last bit of air out of his lungs. Once she seems satisfied, her locking arm goes up, pointing up the ceiling. "OORRAAAAAAA!" She cries as she leaps forward, holding on tight as she drags Grand behind her and slams her whole weight down on the back of his neck.

His Royal Grandness is too busy trying to keep himself annoying the crowd. He's all about making sure that the crowd is realizing that Rainbowmania is about to get destroyed! By THE GRANDEST OF ALL TIME.
He doesn't even notice until she's up close and grabbing at his neck. "Whoopsie!" comes from Grand's mouth as he ducks and shoves to get himself out of harm's way. He's not even sure what that was going to be but he knows it wasn't going to be pretty. He's felt the ire of Rainbow Mika before and he's not about to let himself fall into that trap again.
In fact, his backpedaling puts him behind the referee. He turns on the fancy footwork to make sure he keeps the referee between himself and the Rainbowmaniac for a little bit so that he can try to catch his breath.

That's not good. If she can't get her hands on Grand, then who knows how long all of this is going to take? Or whether or not she'll have an opportunity to actually put him to the mat. Now's not the time to let hi turn things around...
But he's starting to get the referee in the middle of all of this. No way she can risk letting the ref get put down because of some sort of shennanigans from The Main Man. She's going to have to be smart about this, thinks things over, find a way through it.
Well, there's always one good option.
"I guess I should have known not expect so much from Hunter Grand. You're too much of a coward to face me head on the ring without your tricks," Mika's voice carries easily over the crowd as she stares down the man on the other side. "So, should I just wait for you to stop being such a wimp or do you want to just lay down on the mat right now so I can pin you without having to hurt you anymore?"

Grand tries to stand behind the referee as much as possible. He's focused on trying to keep some space between himself and Mika. He can tell she's getting fired up again and the sound of othe cheers getting louder is only making things worse. For him. He doesn't particularly like when things are worse for him.
"Is there a third option? There should be a third option. His Royal Grandness demands a third option! What kind of multiple choice is this?!"
Grand makes a few faces from behind the referee and ends up in a bit of a flail match with him as the ref tries to get Grand to get back to the fight! There's an 'accidental' fall back towards the ropes, which causes Grand to trip over his own feet as he rebounds off and stumbles right into the referee! If the poor ref should go falling in Mika's direction, then, hey, not Grand's fault!

This is bad.
If there's one important thing to note about Rainbow Mika, it's that she is the babyfacest of the babyfaces. If she sees the ref going down, she's not allowed to just stand back and watch it all happen. Someone getting hurt in front of Mika in the ring? She's got to step forward and do the right thing. So rather than roll out of the way of the falling ref, Mika leaps in, catching him and carefully taking the time to set him back down on his feet.
"Looks like I was totally right about what sort of coward you are," Rainbow Mika announces, straightening up and rolling her shoulders as she locks eyes on Grand. "So, since you don't even know how to fight one to one, I might as well just knock you out here and now!"
With a surge of motion, Rainbow Mika launches across the ring toward Grand and then leaps into the air, aiming to plant both of her wrestling boots straight into Hunter's chest and slam him into the turnbuckle and then kicking off of him into a flip to land on her feet. With surprising speed she lashes out to grab hold of him around the neck, planting one hand on his chest to help push him up onto her shoulder as she somehow manages to leap up onto the top rope while putting her opponent vertical on her shoulder.
"HERE! WE! GO!" Mika bellows as she leaps backward with incredible power, launching literally all the way across the ring as she aims to drive backward and slam Grand's head into the opposite turnbuckle.

Hunter Grand continues to play the most innocent role possible. He keeps both of his hands in the air as the referee situation is taken care of. He didn't do anything! He tripped! Everyone saw it! Total accident! Why he's smiling like he just at a canary or something is anyone's guess. But he's certainly doing it!
And look! He's not even attackig Mika while she's trying to make sure the referee doesn't get hurt.
"Hey! Hey! Careful with the ref! He's gotta' count you out here soon!"
Grand turns to make more obscene gestures at the crowd, his back turning towards Mika and the ref. When he hears the crowd rev up again, he's spinning around to catch a pair of boots to the chest. He sails into the turnbuckle and before he even knows what hits him, he's getting up and onto Mika's shoulders. He groans in pain as he's taken on a ride towards the other turnbuckle. During the aerial trip, though, Grand manages to get his hands up and over his head, protecting him somewhat from the collision into the turnbuckle. The padding of the top turnbuckle seems to come off on its own? Certainly had nothing to do with Hunter's hands.
He's woozy as the powerful move ends and he just barely manages to roll off Mika's shoulders. However, the moment his feet hit the mat, he feels a surge of cheap adrenaline and moves quicker than he should be able to at this moment. He moves to spin her around and hook a foot around her leg. He keeps to her side as he attempts to drag her arms up into a full nelson hold, before falling forward and towards the ropes, where he can plant Mika's face into that exposed turnbuckle!

Well, that's not working as intended.
Grand escapes from her grip and she ends up hitting the mat next to the turnbuckle. And then Grand apparently decides to make use of her positioning against her. With the turnbuckle completely unpadded now, this is about to hurt a whole lot, and once Hunter manages to get a grip on the buxum brawler, she's hardly got room to move.
The solution? Don't get out of the way. She's got no other real option now other than to simply eat a faceful of pole.
Not that sort of pole
While she does nothing to actually get out of the way, she does do something to improve her positioning, kicking up off the ground at the moment of impact to flip up and land on the top rope, then kick back off, twisting in the air so that she should be on perfect line to slam into Grand with her thighs on either side of his head, using all of the force to knock him onto his back.
From the ground, Mika bends over, planting her hands on the ground and hauling up with all the muscles in both arm and torso to flip over and crush Hunter's head right back into the mat.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\0 Grand
Hunter Grand is a slick mother effer. Which is why he's always trying to keep himself in a position to make himself better. Well, not that one can actually be better than The Grandest of All Time. No, it's more that he's just going to prove that he's better than Rainbowmania.
Grand almost doesn't know that she's sailing towards him in such a vigorous manner. He immediately backpedals once again, practically running out of the way as she comes down to hit the mat. Like a scavenging predator, though, Grand hits the mat too and practically dives at her, throwing those arms of his around her head and neck, aiming for a much more up close and personal sleeper hold. No dragons this time. Just Grand.
"The time for Rainbows is over. It's nightfall." Squeeze!

This isn't great. As Grant gets his arm around Mika's neck, it's starting to put her down. Running out of air, Mika responds the only way she can think to: she slips both arms in around Grand's midsection, twisting just enough in his grasp to be able to get a full bear hug on him, and then hauls backward without even trying to break his hold.
A very traditional move, the simple german suplex, with a single arc she plows Grand head-first into the mat hard enough to break her grip on her, to send him bouncing away and letting her breathe again.
The Grand One was not prepared for the fact that Mika would prove to just be stronger than him. In fact, he wasn't prepared for anything she had done this entire match. Which, for the record, is why he's got the dumbest look on his face as he's yanked into the air. He tries to wriggle free while getting pulled backwards but his body is just unable to find the leverage and before he knows it, he's smacking into the mat, head-first and bounces a few times for good painful measure.
Normally Mika isn't one to let the moment pass, or to even pause to catch her bearings; after all, when the fight is on, you don't want to leave the crowd bored... but if choking takes your breath away, exerting yourself when you're being choked is way too much. The very moment that she manages to break free of Grand's hold on her neck, she stumbles back against the turnbuckle, her chest visibly heaving with each breath as she tries to recover.
COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika gains composure.

Maybe all that bouncing and rolling was Hunter Grand overselling. Maybe he was just playing opossum. Whatever the case may be, The Main Man Hunter Grand seems to be almost all better. He looks tired and worn out but he's still managing to dig deep enough that he can move quickly.
Thanks to the ropes, he's pulled himself up and he's backed into his own corner and leaning against the turnbuckle. Suddenly, like a bat out of hell, Grand is rushing across the ring, arms flailing and eyes wide. He leaps! And sails right towards...
Over? Mika's head?!
The Grand One flies right out of the ring, as he's definitely over shot his last ditch effort.
Except, that his hand catches the top rope and he pulls down on it as he sails to the outside. He turns and slingshots himself back up into the air, over the back of the turnbuckle and aims to hook the back of Mika's head with his leg and drive her face down into the mat with all of his tricksy conviction!
This modified fame asser truly is a Once In A Lifetime Spectacular Event.

Rainbow Mika 1/------=/=======|=------\-------\0 Grand
The moment that Mika sees Hunter charging down on her, the blonde bombshell readies herself for the attack. The feeling she gets from Grand is that this is going to be something big, and she's going to be ready for it.
Of course, she wasn't really expecting for him to go sailing over her head, but rather than assume that Grand had missed his mark, Mika twists immediately on her heel and plants her feet, taking on a wide, steady stance. The moment she sees the soles of Hunter's boots flying at her, her arms fly up into a simple crossblock, absorbing the majority of the blow as she allows herself to roll backwards. The Main man is allowed to continue down to the mat, but there's no Rainbow beneath him when he hits.
The young superstar has in fact managed to buy herself some room, a chance to breathe... but not much. She got out of a rough situation, but there's no way she can just give herself time to rest as both parties in the match seem to be nearing their last legs.
It worked well enough the first time, so this time Mika goes whole hog as she claps her hands down on Grand's shoulders and thrusts her forehead dead on into the Main Man's face. Blow after blow after blow as she applies machine gun headbutts to the previously busted nose, hopefully leaving Grand so out of it that he doesn't see it coming as her arm snakes down around his neck, bends him over in the middle, allowing Mika to drag him along behind her as she leaps forward, arm braced on the back of his neck as she aims to crush his chin into the mat.

Hunter Grand is barely able to remain standing after hitting the mat like that. He's getting more and more frustrated that this Rainbowmaniac is able to still be standing. He's thrown some of the best he's got to offer at her and she just keeps on ticking. He's going to have to do something about that. He can see that now.
Soon as he's grabbed by the shoulders, he's pretty sure where this is headed. "Not this time!" is said quickly and with a wink, before Grand drops down and out of her grip. He rolls forward and around Mika's legs to pop up on the other side. He lifts up into the air the moment he's upright and launches both of those feet at the back of her head (or her face if she turns around) in an attempt to dropkick this annoying opponent right out of the ring!
COMBATSYS: Grand successfully hits Rainbow Mika with GTFO.

At this point in the fight, is Mika wants to get out of this standing, she's got to try her best to get out of the way, just roll out of reach, move back in, retaliate. So much of her effort has been stopped by the Main Man at this point that she's isn't quite sure what she's got left.
Unfortunately, it turns out that speed isn't anywhere on the list of attributes she still has in her favor. At least not enough of it to avoid having Grand's boots meet the back of her head, knocking her right into the ropes.
After a few moments of being quite literally on the ropes, Rainbow Mika manages, barely, to sort herself out again, at least enough to start pressing right back into them. It's a strange thing to do, being so close to being knocked out of the ring and just leaning into it. It likely doesn't become apparent just what she's planning to do until a few moments later when her boots fly up and all the tension she'd worked into the ropes lets loose, launching her backside first right at Grand like some sort of rump rocket. Every last bit of effort she has left is put into hitting hard.
Because after this, she's not getting back up.

The Grand One is barely on his feet. The moment he lands from that dropkick, he's down on one knee. He's tired. He's worn out. He's bleeding. He's bruised. And he's smiling... because that booty is headed straight for him.
He drops, though, ducking out of the way and practically falling to the mat in desperation. He's running out of moves and he's pretty sure a booty like that would crush him to a loss.
His eyes are closed, so he listens. He waits and listens for Rainbow Mika's body to hit the mat. His body is also on it so he prepares to feel out for vibrations, as well. The moment he hears or feels anything, he's flipping over and crawling in that direction to throw an arm over the curvy body of Rainbow Mika so the ref can do his counting!
The three count is over and the bell is rung to signal the end of the match.
"The winner..." the referee starts, "'The Main Man' Hunter Grand!"
His Royal Grandness raises his arms as he gets to his feet. There is quite a bit of booing that's happening and The Grand One moves to step over Mika's body and over to the side of the ring. He snatches up a microphone from somebody that should've given him one in the beginning of all this. He then steps back to the center of the ring and looks around at all of the new people on the Grandwagon. He brings the mic up to his lips and takes his sweet time to bask in the glory of his jeers. Finally, after much prolonged hesitation, The Main Man decides to speak.
"You're Welcome." That's it. The microphone gets dropped and The Grand One limps his way to the ropes so that he can be done with this loser.
Rainbowmania is no match for the Grandwagon!
COMBATSYS: Grand has ended the fight here.
