SLAMFEST 2020 - SLAMFEST 2020 R1 - Big Blue vs Sophia

[Toggle Names]

Description: SLAM match between Big Blue(aka El Diablo) and Sophia. Weird vs weird, and the audience reacts appropriately.

He felt ridiculous.

This thing chafed way too much, in very personal places. But, the Order needed intel on what was happening out here, and Blue was the only one available to conduct this investigation. And so, El Diablo was 'born'.

The lights dimmed, and a massive spotlight came down on the entrance ramp while some generic last minute music played muffled and warped over the PA system, skipping every so often while the crowd just looked in awkward silence. The big muscular shape in what looked like a modified red ski-mask, with yellow flames hastily painted on here and there. Of course, the top of the mask had two burst areas where a pair of straight jet-black horns stuck straight up. The rest of the man's "costume" was very much the same level of cheap. Yellow sweatpants hugging his waist and legs with a red pair of boxer shorts worn over them, a pair of firefighter boots laced up tightly across his feet, a pair of black fingerless gloves covering his hands...Nothing matched, nothing fit quite properly. He felt ridiculous.

Rolling under the bottom rope and entering the ring without much fanfaire, he adjusted his yellow sweatshirt, hoping people didn't pay too much attention to the blue fingers or the blue neck. Or maybe they'd think it was some weird part of the costume.

He felt ridiculous.

Sophia on the other hand wasn't so subtle. It's not like she could fight and disguise her tail both at the same time. Still if she knew she was fighting a demon and not just a man in a costume, the fight would interest her a lot more. How did she find herself getting into this mess again? She slithers over the ropes and uses her arms to pull herself into the ring.

It was safe to say that the crowd wasn't exactly on either of their sides, though Sophia at least gets a strong reaction. Though, that reaction is more of a startled, shocked bewilderment, possibly fear in some.

For his part, 'El Diablo' was leaning against the ropes and watching the girl carefully, and those glowing yellow eyes narrowed just a little. As he spoke, it was impossible not to see his 'tusks' jutting straight up like thin white needles, in a shape that was startingly similar to his horns.

"Jeez often you gotta clean that thing after 'crawling' around all over the place?"

As he spoke he was circling around her. He wasn't super aggressive right now, and was more focused on watching her and figuring out how in the hell he was going to 'wrestle' a snake woman.

COMBATSYS: Big Blue focuses on his next action.

Luxury suites rim the highest points of the arena. The high seats of the rich and affluent. The nobility of the world, celeberities and those who are just crazed enough to spend the money necessary to rent these out to enjoy these matches with the benefit of the ammenities offered. Private bars, bathrooms, large screen televisions in addition to a gods eye view of the matches, catered dining and sometmes much much more. They've all been occupied. Save one. This one, the largest, sits high above the others like the crown jewels in an opulant crown. It has been dark and unoccupied. Noticable only due to the size of the windows and the great balcony that juts out over it, high above the arena floor. The great windows have been dark. Until now.

A sudden golden light shines from the suite as if the sun itself has set upon top of the arena. Rays shine forth, brilliantly flaring forth and drawing forcing eyes to be shielded and gazes to be averted.

A monsterous physique emerges, in silohuette and yet seemingly the source of the blinding light. It takes a seat in a vast chair and the light begins to fade revealing the glowing swollen presence of The Greatest of All Time. Victor Ortega has arrived in search of something to impress him. His gaze falls on the creatures in the ring as he leans back, propping an elbow onto the side of the throne like seat some sort of restrained barbarian emperor.

Sophia turns a bit red with that comment, "I usually shower in my human form, it's much easier that way. Bathtubs tend to get a bit cramped." She puts her hand on top of her glasses to shield her eyes from the light and hisses a bit. It takes a moment for her to regain her focus as she slithers behind Big Blue and tries to ensare him with her tail.

There's a commotion up in the stands, and Blue is watching it intently. The big show and production, it was clear that this Victor was a showman even now, even when he'd been out of the limelight for a long time.

'El Diablo' was shielding his eyes from the lights, and staring Victor right in the eyes for a long moment. He only realized that Sophia went for an attack when he felt a crushing squeeze around his midsection and right arm, causing him to pull his attention away from the looming threat, and focus more on the current reality. The pain was considerable, but he didn't seem to be responding to it the way a normal person would. However, suddenly his masked face snapped up and he stared at her with a wide eyed, open jawed look of horror.

" you've never washed the lizard part of you?! OHHHH SH-"

The cameras thankfully weren't close enough to capture any expletives, but they'd be able to see the big man suddenly panicking and thrashing, resulting in him reaching down to grab the tail with his left hand, and try and swing the girl overhead and S L A M her down into the mat with authority!

"I'm part snake...not lizard." Sophia doesn't have legs in her lamia form. He manages to grab her by the tail but given her length it's harder to slam her into the mat then one might think. She coils around his arm and upper body trying to return the favor and press him into the mat.

Big Blue was not a wrestler, that much was certain. But he'd been in fights with some very nasty creatures before, and surprise surprise, very few of them threw punches or karate kicks. Many more of them preferred to grab you and pull you to the floor before eating your face.

So, when Sophia coiled her tail around his chest and shoulder, he instantly braced himself against the momentum of the maneuver, leaning his upper body forward and slightly sprawling his lower body at the same time.

"Yeah that's great, Discovery Channel. Now I'm very informed."

As he spoke...stormclouds started gathering above the two of them. They were purple, and the resulting brief rain that torrented down was a similar funky color. And while Oni and Lamia were locked in a stalemate, the former was bringing down some supernatural aide to try and tip things in his favor.

Case in point, after the freezing rain, a purple flash of lightning came thundering down and was aiming right for the snake woman! What's what, lightning is faster than thunder? Well, knowing that didn't seem to help at the moment!

Sophia shivers a bit as the freeze rain begins coming down, that's not the worst of it though. Her tail is rather large target after all and the lightning comes down from the clouds striking it. She cringes in pain as she's shocked and loses her grip on the oni.

It seems like he's capable of more than just grappling with her. If he was going to do more than just wrestling moves she would do the same. She opens her mouth widely and a green glob of acid is discharged from it.

Well, that was unfortunate. 'El Diablo' saw the glob flying through the air and damn near flew out of the way, attempting to do some sort of cool roll, and ended up impaling both of his horns straight into that wrestling mat. A loud sigh could be heard, as when he moved to stand, his head was still stuck, which he was sure looked hilarious with him bent over at the waist, masked head 'in' the ground as if he were an ostritch. Instantly he snarled and shot his head up wildly, loudly tearing and ripping the mat in a way that no doubt made the technicians cringe and hate their jobs.

When he was finally able to stand up, he noticed, a little too late, that the glob had tagged him square across the chest and his sweatshirt was sizzling. It was ripped open(it was supposed to zip, but there was no time!) and thrown aside, which meant his chest was now just covered in a black tanktop, and his blue arms and neck and upper body was now extremely visible.

Looking around at everyone in the crowd laughing, or just staring at him, caused him to turn and glare at the lamia.

"I think this is one of the worst ideas I've ever had. It's up there, anyway."

As he was speaking, he was rushing across the ring, and leaping across the air so he could throw out a big heavy kick aimed at her chest, something to take his mind off of this nightmare he found himself in.

Sophia notices the oni quickly rushing at her and raises her tail up to block the attack. The force pulls her back and she launches herself at him. The lamia extends her arm and tries to hit him in the neck with it.

Big Blue         0/-------/--=====|=====--\-------\0           Sophia

Sophia had momentum on her side, but the oni currently masquerading as some sort of a 'Luchador' was one cough customer. Instead of his throat, the lamia hit his rock solid chest, the 'thud' audible all the way to the people in the back.

'El Diablo' looked down at the point of impact. When he looked back up, his yellow eyes shone even brighter, and seemed to practically be on fire. They were smoking, in any case.

"That was cute. Now it's my turn."

Blue did the same move she just did, except he didn't have any running start. He just stood right next to her, and pivoted his body to create the force and momentum itself.

Given the size difference between them, there's a lot more strength in Big Blue's upper body than Sophia. The massive amount of force sends the lamia tumbling onto the mat below. It takes a moment for her to catch her breath and pull herself back up. She feels a bit drained after that attack, but she could easily take care of that.

Her hands begin to glow a sickly green and a thread of energy forms between them. The energy takes form into a small snake and is promptly tossed at the oni with the intent of sucking him dry.

Big Blue         1/------=/=======|=======\===----\1           Sophia

There is a spirit snake attacked to the faux-wrestler's bicep, and the way the big man roars in pain, it's clear that it was doing a number on him. In fact, it drops him down to one knee, his left hand inching toward his right arm even as the veins on that arm start really bulging in a way that looks far less than healthy.

But suddenly, he -DID- grab the snake, and wrapping it around his left hand, he squeezed it hard enough that it looked like it comically 'vomited' some of what it took, right back into him. That was not going to be good later, but for now, he'd take what he could get.

No words right now, he was just waiting for the next onslaught, whatever that may be...

COMBATSYS: Big Blue takes no action.

That was more effective than Sophia expected. Still the fact he doesn't try to attack her makes the lamia a bit supicious as she slithers closer. It would be best to keep this simple in case he did try anything and she simply swings her tail at him to further knock him off balance.

The tail slapped him absolutely silly, hitting the mysterious masked man that it turned him right around...and then he whirled around and somehow, out of nowhere, he was holding a great big, massive iron tetsubo, a Japanese mix between a mace, a maul and a sledgehammer. He swung it wildly at her, a rather reckless and formless variation of the classic 'golf swing', but one that would no doubt launch the poor girl into the air if it connected. If she was in the air...she might notice that the stormclouds were back, and more terrible than ever. Thundering and bringing down heavy, stinging ice-cold rain and a hailstorm right over that wrestling ring, the bolt of lightning that came down this time was massive, easily the size of a human person. As every electrical system in the arena started going on the fritz, the overhead lights suffering and would no doubt need a costly repair and tune-up after this encounter. To say nothing of the two wrestlers currently in the ring!

Big Blue         0/-------/------=|=======\====---\1           Sophia

Sophia gasps as she sees the massive club, she had been correct that he had been preparing something. A giant club wasn't quite what she was expecting. She slithers underneath the club and tries to stay as low to the ground as possible as she hears the thunder. As the lights flash she takes advantage of the brief darkness in order to try and slip behind the oni. She begins to attempt to wrap herself around in order to drain the life out of him directly.

Big Blue         0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Sophia

The pressure of the crowd staring, the pressure of the lights up in the sky, the pressure of now being damp and soggy all because he went and got mad again, it was all getting to him, and it all got to be too much. Club was tossed aside into nothingness, and as he saw her slithering around, he instead shook his head.

"Aww fer cripes sake, what's the point? I tap, I say uncle. You get yer damn point, you get yer free brownies, or whatever the hell ya get fer winning."

Bending down, he performs the ritual of slapping his hand down upon the mat just to give everyone a clear idea. And as the boos rain down and the jeering starts, the big man rolls out of the ring and grabs his sweatshirt on the way out. Under a parade of thrown beer cans and beer bottles, 'El Diablo' makes his retreat.

COMBATSYS: Big Blue has left the fight here.

Sophia           0/-------/-------|

It appears that her opponent has given up. Well a win is a win, but the flying glass and cans were a sign that it was a good time to leave. Sophia adjusts her glasses a bit and figures her opponent must be fine if he's able to leave the ring under his own power. She does her best to try and avoid slithering over the broken glass that's now littering the ring.
