[Toggle Names]

Description: SLAMFEST 2020 brings you another exciting match! Tonight only in the ring, the skillful red shinobi, MAKI battles the New York bruiser, Alex! Who will take the win? Who will take the pin? FIND OUT TONIGHT!

It's time for another exciting SLAMFEST 2020 matchup, and it's packed to the maximum here at the CWA Main Stadium. The crowd is looking as eager as ever for another good time, and it looks like there's going to be lots of excitement and brawling here. Not to mention, the crowd shouldn't have to wait too long for the excitement to begin.

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to this SLAMFEST matchup!" The ring announcer says, causing the crowd to become very excited. "First up, weighing in at one-hundred and fifteen pounds, standing at five feet five inches tall, from Japan, the Crimson Ninja herself: MAKI GENRYUUSAI!"

As soon as her name is called, Maki steps onto the ramp with her hands on her hips. She is wearing her usual attire, save for her tonfa which she was forced to leave behind as per the rules of the match. She raises her hands diagonally in the air as a series of fireworks go off in sequence, then proceeds to run down the ramp swiftly.

Upon reaching the ring, Maki leaps onto the edge of the ring and proceeds to somersault over the ropes. She runs to the center of the ring and proceeds to look around before placing her right fist against her left palm and bowing, before running to her corner and awaiting her challenger.

"And in the other corner, weighing in at two-hundred and forty-five pounds, standing at six foot five inches tall, from New York, ... ALEX!"

Alex walks in in a grey tank top and green fatigue pants. He rolls his shoulder in the joint, bracing his bicep with his other hand. The fireworks explode, but Alex doesn't react other than a short wave to the crowd before moving ot the ring.

He grabs the ropes and flips himself up into the ring with a heavy thump, the springs bouncing when he lands.

"Hey, what's up? You some kind of ninja?"

"Didn't you hear it?" Maki asks with a slight scowl. "I'm Maki Genryuusai, master of the Bushin-ryu style of ninjitsu!" She runs a hand through her hair. "This isn't my usual type of fight, but it really doesn't matter. The Bushin-ryu style of ninjitsu is like no other!" She smiles a little. "I'm looking forward to combining it with pro wrestling, so this should be interesting."

With that, Maki waits for the referee to ring the bell. She cracks her knuckles and hops in place a little as if warming herself up before a standard fight. "Let's get this on!"

"Yeah," Alex says, "I thought it was somethin' like that." He steps forward, dropping to a bend and bouncing up back into some lunge stretches. "Not really fought a ninja before. Lookin' forward to it."

Alex adjusts his headband, and when the bell rings, and Alex is on the move. He cuts in close, ducking toward Maki on the charge. His hand snaps out in a swift, straight side chop that flashes with bright yellow chi.

"New experience, huh?" Maki says. "Well, let me give you a little advice." The advice in question isn't spoken, but rather demonstrated to Alex. As soon as he comes at Maki with his chop, the ninja twists herself sideways and causes the chop to hit nothing but air. When the ninja faces Alex again, there's a slight smirk on her face.

"Ninjas pride themselves on being agile, so don't expect to hit me so easily!"

As if attempting to drive this point home further, the ninja leaps backwards into the ropes and then dashes at Alex while attempting to raise her arm in an attempt to catch him with a swift raised arm intent on taking him down.

COMBATSYS: Alex blocks Maki's Medium Lariat.

Alex grunts as his chop goes over Maki's head, the big blond taking a backstep to adjust for her twisting manuever. When she closes back in for the counter attack, Alex backs off and goes on the defensive. He buckles down and shoulders the lariat, taking the blow to his shoulder and sliding across the mat.

"Yeah, I kinda figured that one. Thanks," Alex says, blowing his hair out of his face. He stomps forward next, sweeping out with a low sweep to try and catch Maki off-guard where the chop may have been a bit too obvious.

COMBATSYS: Alex successfully hits Maki with Short Kick.

[  \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////    ]
Alex             0/-------/-----==|==-----\-------\0             Maki

Maki doesn't bother responding to Alex. She simply attempts to get back into her fighting stance and intends to avoid whatever Alex has planned for her next. Unfortunately, she isn't expecting to be swept off of her feet as she dodges the wrong way and finds one of her feet going out beneath her. She drops to the canvas on her side, letting out an oomph as she does so. She rolls onto her back then gets up via a kippup, shaking her head a little.

"That was a nice one, I'll give you that," Maki says sarcastically. "But what say we give the crowd a real show, hmm?" Maki backs away from Alex, stepping up onto the turnbuckle. At that, the referee begins to count, giving Maki five seconds to get down before she gets disqualified.

"Stop the count," Maki says to the referee as she launches off the turnbuckle. As she does so, she flies towards Alex with her leg outstretched. It's not like your typical drop kick; Rather Maki is attempting to show off her ninja moves here!

COMBATSYS: Maki successfully hits Alex with Hassou Kyaku.

Alex backsteps after the kick, not going for a pin this early in the match. The announcer chimes in, but it's noise in his ears. Now that the fight is going, his focus is solely on Maki. If he's a wrestler, he doesn't that grasp of showmanship that a veteran has. He handles himself more like a street fighter.

"Thanks," Alex says, responding to the sarcasm, "I expect you got some tricks up your sleeve still though." He's proven right when Maki comes in with the airborne kick, and Alex is caught flat-footed trying to take the blow head on. It clocks him upside the neck with a meaty thump, staggering the bruiser and bringing him down the mat with a springy thump. For a good second he doesn't get up, shaking his head free of stars before planting his hands and springing back to his feet.

He runs a bare thumb across his jaw, then the black of his fingerless glove. "Oh yeah, not bad," he says. "This is gonna be a fun one." He extends his arm suddenly, muscles tightening when he clenches a fist. Surging forward, he goes for a full-speed clothesline to try and sweep Maki off her feet and slam her into the ropes.

COMBATSYS: Maki dodges Alex's Sledgehammer.

Alex             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Maki

"I've got a lot more up my sleeve," Maki says. "Trust me, I'm just getting warmed up!" She smirks. "And when I'm in the ring, it's always fun!" She hmmphs. "But if you want to fight against me, you have to deal with my speed!" She shakes her head. "Strength won't cut it when all I'll do is dodge you!"

A huge clothesline like that could hurt if it hit Maki, but her speed helps her cope with that as she gets down quickly and finds herself in close proximity to Alex. "Are you going to give me a challenge or am I going to be getting a lot of aerobic exercise today?" She asks sarcastically, before attempting to deliver a ninja style throw to Alex by grabbing him around the neck and slamming him into the canvas. Only to give it a little more flair, she does a small jump as she's throwing him into the canvas!

COMBATSYS: Alex fails to interrupt Audacious Slam from Maki with Leg Tomahawk.

Alex             0/-------/=======|====---\-------\0             Maki

"Yeah? We'll let's see what you got!" Alex says as he winds out of the clothesline, turning on his heel to face Maki again. He bends his knees and splays his arms in a low wrestler's stance. When Maki goes in for the grab, Alex goes for the reserve, he cuts in low, trying to grab hold and shove her forward to set up a kick--

But he's too low. Too slow. She gets over his guard and get shim by the neck. Alex goes reaches for her arm, but she's already transitioned into the throw before he can break. The two of them impact the mat hard enough to stagger him, leaving him trying to catch his breath.

"Lady, you got a mouth," Alex wheezes.

"A mouth?" Maki asks, frowning a little as she lowers an eyebrow. "Oh please, if you want to see someone with a big mouth, I'll point you at some of the Mad Gears!" She tsks. "But they wouldn't last a minute in this ring, those jokers!" Running her hands through her hair as if to drive home the point she's barely being challenged here, Maki says, "Now come on, let's fight for real!"

In this case, Maki really wants to fight for real as she gets close to Alex, but then suddenly drops onto the canvas and then, while balancing on her hand, begins to spin around rapidly. This is no special effects, ladies and gentlemen, but rather Maki demonstrating her real signature move. The Bushin Senpuu Kyaku, her signature attack which turns her into a human whirlwind and can leave a lasting impression in more ways than one!

"Yeah, yeah," Alex says, "I don't like them much, either. Buncha thugs terrorizin' people and bustin' things up." When the whirlwind of kicks comes, Alex draws up and goes on the defensive. He brings his arms up to try and guard, but the first kick catches him before the opening has closed. Blow after blow rattles his jaw, neck, and chest as it drives him back into the ropes. He drops back into them with a creak, his fingers wrapping round to stay on his feet as he shakes his head.

"OK," Alex says, "this ain't easy. Gotta get serious here."

Slingshotting off the ropes, he goes in, then drops to low, his palms hitting the mat. He vaults up into a shoulder charge, aiming to catch Maki at an odd angle to slam her off her feet with his mass.

COMBATSYS: Alex successfully hits Maki with Audacious Slam.
Grazing Hit

Alex             1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0             Maki

"Dealing with a ninja is serious business, wouldn't you say?" Maki says with a slight smirk. "After all, being able to dodge your attacks like-"

OK, so maybe Maki does have a bit of a mouth to her.

She finds herself being grabbed and slammed onto the canvas harder than she expects. While she manages to avoid taking more damage than she could have, the impact still leaves her a bit woozy. She gets back onto her feet and groans a little. "OK, that was just a fluke."

As she struggles to make herself more steady on her feet, Maki attempts to lift up her leg quickly and deliver a kick to Alex. Her attempt is to deliver a strike from the sole of her sneaker to Alex, and while it may not smell bad, it still could hurt!

COMBATSYS: Alex interrupts Big Boot from Maki with Stungun Headbutt.
-@- Dazing Hit! -@-

Alex             0/-------/-----==|=======\====---\1             Maki

When Alex takes Maki down to the mat, he seems to regain some confidence. He sweeps his hair out of his face with his forearm, dripping with sweat. With a step back, he rolls his shoulders again, readying himself once more. Maki brushes off the hit, but Alex stays quiet for a change.

And when the leg comes, he makes his move. The big man powers forward, taking the hit to his broad chest. It knocks the wind out of him with a thump, but he keeps moving, closing the gap. He moves in closer, dangerously close. His hand reaches out, grabbing at Maki.

And when he has a grip his head comes forward like a steel trap snapping, and Alex delivers a furious headbutt. Then another. Then another. The flurry of blows is enough to dizzy just about anyone--and the last hit carries enough impact to send her reeling.

Indeed, Maki finds herself on the receiving end of a bit of pain. She finds herself being butted by Alex's head, and again and again and again, then she finds herself sent back up against the ropes and then forwards. This time, though, she finds herself looking a little unsteady on her feet as she tries to get the stars out of her vision, but that's not looking likely.

"Fourth of July already?" Maki babbles as she holds her head in an attempt to get the arena from spinning around. "Someone stop this ride already!" She tries to keep herself on both of her feet, but her legs are wobbling like jelly as she tries to stop from falling down.

"No way," She says as she tries to grasp onto the ropes with her hands and shake the stars away.

COMBATSYS: Maki takes no action.

[                   \\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Alex             0/-------/-----==|=======\====---\1             Maki

One hand goes up to adjust his headband as Alex takes the momentary breather to recover the vicious headbutt chain. He wipes his palms on his tank top and stomps toward Maki, slowly building up momentum. In a few steps he's up to speed, barreling at her.

His hand snaps out, aiming to take Maki by the arm. If he gets hold he pulls the arm around into a lock, then swings her around toward the opposite corner in a classic Irish Whip.

COMBATSYS: Maki dodges Alex's Irish Whip.

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////             ]
Alex             0/-------/-----==|=======\====---\1             Maki

The stars are spinning freely in Maki's face as she shakes them away, trying to get her vision back and prepare to fight some more. She's trying, but the stars just don't want to go away. All the while Alex is approaching on her fast, and he seems intent to take advantage of Maki's lack of awareness and ability to see straight. It seems he wants to send her running with the famous Irish whip.

Unfortunately, that's not going to work today.

Just as Alex attempts to grab at Maki, she gets the stars out of her eyes and she dodges around Alex instead of being sent running. Another jump back and then she's on the turnbuckle again. This time, though, instead of demonstrating a flying kick, Maki attempts to leap at Alex and grab him while she's in the air. Not for a flying neckbreaker, though.

Her intention here is to grab his whole body and then perform a one-eighty somersault while throwing him back onto the canvas!

COMBATSYS: Alex blocks Maki's Tengu Daoshi.

Alex             0/-------/----===|=======\====---\1             Maki

Alex's fingers rake through the empty air as Maki outmanuevers him, leaving him open. In the next instant Maki's on his shoulders and going for the flying somersault. The big man goes airborne, feet over his head, before he takes desperate action to break free and avoid the worst of the blow. He instead goes tumbling across the ring, the metallic springs echoing his landing.

And then he's back to one knee, then his feet, resuming his wrestling stance. "You wasn't kiddin' about bein' fast," Alex wheezes. "Good moves too."

But Alex can't dwell on giving compliments. He's on the move again with a charge, throwing out an arm and pivoting on his hip to go for a high lariat.

COMBATSYS: Maki parries Alex's Medium Lariat!

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Alex             0/-------/----===|=======\=====--\1             Maki

This is no time for compliments, indeed. Especially when your opponent has the upper hand over you. And even moreso when your opponent is still intent on keeping the upper hand against you. Or should that be upper arm?

Because as soon as Alex attempts to hit Maki with a lariat, her own arm comes up and knocks Alex's away. There's a slight smirk on her face as she does that, but it quickly disappears. "Better think fast!" She yells as she suddenly begins to glow for a moment, as if all of her chi is flowing into her body.

"And now for the grand finale!" She cries out as she attempts to deliver a swift right hook to Alex that should stun him long enough to deliver a left uppercut, a high kick, and then finally a drop kick. Truth be told, it's a modified version of Maki's signature finishing move, adapted to fit the professional wrestling theme a bit.

COMBATSYS: Alex barely endures Maki's Bushin Gou Rai Ha EX.

[                          \\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Alex             1/-------/=======|=------\-------\0             Maki

The right hook impacts Alex's jaw with a heavy crack, and the big man sees stars. He staggers back, but only for a moment before the uppercut catches him on the chin. The high kick is chasing it, smashing into his chest and driving him back. By the time the drop kick comes he's almost against the turnbuckle already, and slams him into it hard enough that it almost seems like the post might buckle for a moment as he crashes into it. He staggers, fingers wrapping around the ropes as he tries to pull himself up.

With a grunt and groan, the blond gets back on his feet, swaying but managing to stay upright despite a pounding head and blurry vision. He takes deep breaths, tenses, and exhales. "I ain't...going down..that easy," he mutters before cutting through the air with a sharp chop. Yellow chi flares in its way, cutting a trail behind it.

And then there's another, and another. Three chops through the air, and that's it if she stays ahead of him. If Maki gets caught in them?

Alex transitions into a low grab for the waist, pivoting into a somersaulting suplex. That's about all he manages, however, because the man doesn't get up again.

COMBATSYS: Alex can no longer fight.

COMBATSYS: Maki dodges Alex's Boomerang Raid.

Unfortunately, Alex's last ditch effort at landing his attack ends up hitting nothing but air. With her opponent down for the count, Maki wastes no time in getting him into position to be pinned down. Upon getting his shoulders down, the referee runs over and starts counting.

"One! Two! Three!"

The bell rings and the crowd is up on their feet. Some are cheering and some are booing as the ring announcer says over the microphone, "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, here is your winner by pinfall: The Crimson Ninja, Maki Genryuusai!"

Maki raises her hands in a victory pose and smiles a little before looking at Alex. "That was a good fight, actually. You gave me a run for my money." With that, Maki makes her way out of the ring, waving to the crowd as she makes her way out of the arena after having successfully completed her first ever wrestling match. This will be a story for the ages.

She just hopes Guy wasn't watching...

COMBATSYS: Maki has ended the fight here.
