Neo League 0001 - NL#0001: Sven vs Rainbow Mika

Description: Live in the CWA Arena, wrestling wolf Sven Maesters faces off the delightful Rainbow Mika in full frontal smackdown in the midsts of the first Neo-League fight. Winner: Rainbow Mika


It is only halfway through the night, but the traveling arena was packed for the headliner: NOT The Neo-League fight. Nah, there were ALWAYS bigger headliners than some of the Neo-League matches. But the fact remained that the wrestling ring sat there, lined with blue and bold, with the big CWA logo plastered on the gloor, right in the middle. The crowd is roaring, holding up signs for the most familiar name for the match.

Rainbow Mika.

Scandinavia Power Metal blares from the speakers as, down the walkway, a tall man in camo shorts stomps his boots towards the center ring. Bearing a wolf-man mask, and a heavy wolf-skin pelt as a cape, the wrestler rushes right past the somewhat uninterested crowd. The announcer roars out. "Looks like Rainbow Mika's challenger finally showed up! Sven Maesters, straight from Stockholm, Sweden! Well, I don't know about you folks, but he looks more like a wolf to me!" Sven himself doesn't seem to react to the comment, nor does he seem to work hard to build any heat, or... anything, really. He just saunters to the center ring, wearing that mask.

He climbs into the ring, without a word.

While the recent surge of big events has been a boon to Rainbow Mika's presence in the fighting scene, it isn't quite enough to live up to the challenge that the wrestler set out for herself: Any opponent, any crowd, anywhere in the world.

Certainly she'd been given some benefit from all of the popularity with major events in the last few weeks, but simply pulling big, gimmicky events isn't nearly enough. Every single one of her more recent fights had some weird stipulations involved (well, except the one that was supposed to happen against Zangief, but that also turned into a mess), and there's something to be said about proving your prowess one on one.

What has put a nice boon to her goal was the announcement of the new Neo League; having somebody else pay the bill for you to accept some challenge halfway across the world? Perfect! This would open up tons of new opportunities to fight wrestlers with interesting styles in new places.

...And yet somehow in her first fight she's scheduled to go up against a wrestler at the CWA Arena.

A fight is a fight, though. So here she is. Her entrance music blares over the loud speakers and she pops out at the top of the ramp, doing a few quick poses before blowing a kiss to the active camera.

From there it's mostly a straight shot down to the ring. She slides in under the bottom rope and quickly pops up to her feet as she moves to the center to face off with her masked opponent.

...Technically she is also masked, but her's is much smaller. And not a wolf.

Sven wasn't in it for the fame.

He just needed the money. The payout was hardly great. But it was something. The musclar viking grips the ropes, stretching as he lets the crowd eat up Rainbow Mika. He didn't normally fight girls. As she slides under the bottom rope, he gives one last pull on the ropes.

And then he turns to face his opponent.

"You is better get ready, Rainbow Mika!" The Swede drawls out loudly from behind the mask, thursting a finger at the smaller wrestler. "I heard you are pretty tough with lots of heart. But you will need a lot more than heart..." Sven begins to spread his arms out, stomping his boots down as he readies his wrestling stance.

"If you wish to tame the wolf!"

COMBATSYS: Sven has started a fight here.

Quite honestly, Mika had never heard of Sven Maesters. There were a lot of very big wrestling leagues, and even a major disaster isn't always enough to bring attention all the way in Japan. So, all she really knew about the man was what she saw right in front of her.

...Well, he wasn't being a complete jerk or acting like he didn't want to be here, which was honestly a bit of a step up from some of her recent fights. She starts to focus in on the way that the energy of the crowd began to flow, then slowly pulled in from the highest points of the arena until its down to the core of the ring, slowly tugging on the aura pulling off of her opponent.

"We may not have a lot of wolves in Japan, but I'll say this." She whips an arm up into a quick flexing pose. "I've got the heart, the technique, and the will... and the old story goes that beauty tamed the beast!"

She drops back into a similarly wide wrestling stance as a smile spreads across her face. It's always exciting in the ring.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0             Sven

Having spent a surprising amount of time in front of a crowd like this, and having gotten enough attention that she's already starting with some fans cheering her on the crowd, Rainbow Mika is quick to get right into the action the very moment that the bell rings for the match to begin.

"SO! Let's see just what sort of beast you are!" She is at a bit of a disadvantage here, it wouldn't take much for Sven to have seen at least some of her matches (that last one with the Astro invading sure got passed around a lot), and she doesn't know much about him besides the fact that he like wolf fur.

In this situation, she decides to simply go for some basic technique, leaping in to hook the back of her arm around his neck while planting her free hand on his chest in an effort to haul him up vertical on her shoulder. Once in position, she simply drops backward while holding the big swede vertical to plant his head into the mat.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0             Sven

Nobody really heard of Sven Maesters.

The fact he was doing the Neo-League was a sign of the times. Nobody talked about Ragnarok. It was a small-time thing, where he ended up as the only survivor. Right now, the best thing he could do for that old chapter was to fight. And wear the mask.

To do it for his father.

"Beauty won't tame this beast!" He rumbles, circling around the pretty wrestler. He suddenly takes a leap to the side... and lunges immediately back to where he started. Sven was fast, in spite of his size, the wolf rushing around back to the center.

Right in the line of Mika's grapple.

The massive Swede is swept up by the lady, caught in her clutches. Sven is slammed HARD to the mat, head first, being BRAINBUSTAAAAAH'd to the roar of the crowd. The wrestler grunts on impact, body shaking.

What an embarassing opening.

There is a seeth of frustration from the fighter, as he growls. Thundering back up, dazed from the attack, he charges blindly. He takes to a sprint now, dashing towards the ropes. And as he reaches them... he takes a leap. Bounding right on the ropes, he runs along them, parallel to the female wrestler. Reaching the turnbuckle, he leaps off, straight back towards Mika in a low, aerial sweep. Hurling through the air he lets out a feral growl, as he attempts to hook Rainbow Mika's neck between his legs. Should he manage to catch her between those legs, he will spin her to the ground with a cockscrew DDT, smash her face first to the ground.

Just like how she did it to HIM!

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Sven

A good opening is important, it immediately builds excitement in the crowd, which charges the atmosphere and inspires the wrestlers in the ring to keep going. You only really want a slow start when you've already built things up; a grudge match is usually an excellent option for that.

It's really hard to do a grudge match the first time two fighters meet, which is why its impressive that Sven apparently is ready to go for it right off the bat.

There's no way she's jumping out of the way when she's face to face with a leaping berserker, so instead she opts to loosen up, ready to roll with the hit when it comes, to shave off a good deal of force when she's hit, then put him off balance for hitting her face first into the mat.

...Or he's a lot angrier and faster than she expected, and she does eat mat.

It's a good thing she's trained to take hits. She pops right back up to her feet and locks eyes on the surprisingly large aerialist. Well, if he wants to take to the skies, she might as well show him that she can do it, too.

Rainbow Mika rushes back, slamming into the ropes at the edge of the arena and putting all the force she can into them... then rocketing out of them straight toward Sven with all the speed she can muster. She launches herself up into the air with practiced ease and attempts to hit him right in the face, with her legs on either side of his head, and use all of her momentum to knock him on his back. Her legs latch in tight on his head on the way down, and as soon as they hit the mat, she plants her hands on the mat and hauls him up into the air with her legs, whipping him around to pound him back into the mat.

Sven scrambles to get back up.

The pelt cloak whipping around him, the wolfy wrestler was well off balanced. Unfortunately for him, Mika is much faster than the surly swede. Growling, he manages to get back up in time for Mika to run into those ropes... and fire straight back into the wolf-masked wrestler. "Oh come on!" He seethes, as he braces himself for impact.

She manages to get those legs around his face.

Sven, however, does not go down. Slamming his boot back, he keeps his footing, refusing to fall as he endures a faceful of Mika. Taking his own hands, he grabs those plump thighs, on in each hand, and holds on. As she twists to flip him around, he rumbles. "Oh no you don't!" He begins, as he struggles to pull the girl off his face. Should he succeed? He will take control of the hold, and with a reversaL?

Bring her straight to the mat into a piledriver.

Rainbow Mika     1/-------/=======|=======\==-----\1             Sven

Alright, this isn't really what she had planned. The idea was to get him onto the mat, not simply have his head squeezed up between her thighs while he's still standing. Honestly, it's pretty impressive.

This is far from an optimal situation, but one of the great things about training to be a professional wrestler: learning how to improvise.

1) She's already on his head.

2) He's putting in the effort to swing her body around.

3) She has a surprising amount of techniques that involve using the rotational force of her body to make somebody else hit the ground.

Rainbow Mika lets Sven put in the initial work, but then suddenly twists her body backward with all of her force, whipping her arms out to either side as she keeps on twisting and slams his head right back down into the mat.

Unfortunately, the awkward positioning modifies the setup of her attack, and she ends up knocking harder than expected herself. It stings, but with the excitement going up from the crowd after that series of events? Totally worth it.

Sven Maesters was in a pickle.

With Rainbow Mika reversing that reverse, the piledriver becomes a wild driver, sending the swede slamming to the mat. While it might have hurt Mika, it definately brought Sven a lot more pain. The wrestler rolls on the ground in pain, only gradually coming to a rise. "Okay. You is asked for it!" He bellows, as with a tug, he pulls off his cape. Hurling it out of the ring, he beats his exposed chest.

"It is the NIGHT of the WARWOLF!"

Hurtling himself ahead, Sven blisters back to the ropes at breakneck speed. Hitting the ropes hard, he springs right back, taking the momentum to hurl himself at Rainbow Mika. Holding an arm out, he straight up attempts to clothesline her. But whether or not he hits?

He won't be slowing down.

Rainbow Mika     1/-----==/=======|=======\==-----\1             Sven

Things have really started to heat up inside the ring. Already Mika appreciates just how much Sven is willing to go for it in a rough spot. He's got the spirit, and that's important. Giving it your all is what matters more than anything else.

Honestly, Mika can hardly believe the speed with which the swede is getting back up and coming right at her. There's maybe just enough time... she tries to roll under his outstretched arm, to get in a good spot behind him when he goes running past...

It's just not fast enough, she starts the roll, and her timing means she catches his clotheline right in the forehead and goes flat on her back.

Not enough to keep her down, though. Rainbow Mika pushes back up to her feet. She can feel some of her muscles starting to get tired from the intensity of the fight, but taking in a deep breath, listening to the roar of the crowd... its all gone.

"You throw in some good hits, and you've got the passion it takes to bring the excitement to the crowd. There's only one thing for us to do right now... and that's to throw everything we've got at each other until one of us is left standing, or neither of us are left standing! I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT I'VE GOT, YOU SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT!"

Her bellowing cry fills the arena, offering no opportunity to respond as she barrels in at Svan with all the force she can muster, her hands and head moving at the same time, hands clasping him in position while her forehead comes flying it, bounding against the front of his mask over and over again in an effort to leave him completely dazed, to give her an opportunity to whip in behind him, snare both arms around his midsection, and then haul him up and over in a glassic german suplex, putting his head right into the mat.

The wolf was unchained.

Piling straight through the wrestler, Sven rails through Mika, continuing his charge to the ropes. Oh, he hears the challenge. He knows it. And frankly, he was going to take it. Not even taking a moment to look back, the jumps back to the ropes. And immediately, he springs back off them, hurtling through the air to catch Mika right between his legs.

Instead, Mika catches him.

As he flings through the air to bring her between his own thighs, she manages to barrel right into Sven, headbutting him right out of the aerial assault. He doesn't even successfully collapse to the ground, the smaller, agile wrestler catching him into a german suplex, pounding him to the mat. Sven doesn't move, after that. The wolf is quiet. The ref at the sidelines begins the count. "One... Two...."

And Sven sputters and flails, breaking himself out of the count.

That was an impressive answer to the challenge. You can never look down on your opponent for failing to pull off a grand maneuver against you, because to call someone incompetent for failing to beat you insults both your ability and that of your challenger. It's all about respect.

As the wolf lays quiet, waiting to be counted out by the far less efficient rules of general fighting than wrestling (that strange stipulation in Neo League being no special rules), Rainbow Mika begins to do her part for the show... even if the show isn't required.

She makes a circle around the ring, basking in the cheers of the crowd as she waves. She climbs up onto the turnbuckle and raises both hands into the air. It's all grandstanding, but that's an important part of the ritual among professional grapplers. It isn't until she hears the referee stop counting that she turns back around to see her opponent rise back up from the mat.

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika excites the crowd!

Sven Maester thought the whole thing was rigged.

What was this crap. This was just a girl. This wasn't even a REAL wrestler. The furious, spiteful thoughts spill from him as the wolf-masked wrestler scrambles, struggling to rise. Rising back up, he turns angrily back towards Rainbow Mika, after her little run around. Furiously, he flips her the bird... And raises the bird to the audience. A round of boos comes around, as the message comes across. Mika was exciting the crowd, and this clown was insulting them? But the Night of the Warwolf wasn't yet over.

And he holds up another finger on his hand.

And then another.

Three fingers were up, as he shakes them in the air. He takes several steps back to the ropes. And it seems like he is going to try again. He climbs back on, ducking down low on the ripes, stretching them to their limits. And with that, he unleashes a powerful springboard, hurtling through the air, legs first to Mika's neck...

And he clutches Mika between those thighs.

Squeezing her tight, Sven latches on, arcing his back HARD as he flips the smaller wrestler over his head into a Frankensteiner, slamming her face-first on to the mat. But he keeps rolling. Tumbling hard, he rolls on the ground, legs in a vicegrip as he slams her on the ground twice, and finally, a third time. He finally releases her with a fourth tumble, hurling her straight for the ropes... to bounce her off them. The crowd is howling, groaning at the pain they could see...

And then he adds in the finisher.

The swede rises back up, rushing right towards Mika as she bounces off the ropes. Arms out, he recieves the rebounded Mika. He clotheslines her hard, spinning her around his body, before coming to a kneel. And like that, he unleashes the backbreaker, smashing her right on his knee. Sven Maesters releases Mika, rolling her to the ground, as he thrusts his fists in the air.


Being on the turnbuckle isn't really a great position when somebody is leaping at you. Certainly, it might be possible to simply roll out of the way and take a small hit on the mat. It's also possible that you might be able to hit your opponent as they come at you.

With the fury and speed of the wolf man coming Mika's way, she's limited to a far less pleasant option: try to roll with it and hope that it doesn't destroy you.

As Sven takes hold of her, Mika's entire body starts to relax. This is a rather simple maneuver, she just has to roll as soon as she hits the mat and she'll be fine. She does plenty of moves similar to the Frankensteiner.

She hits the mat.

It doesn't stop.

If she'd been in a better position, if she'd thought a little bit quicker, perhaps not allowed herself to be distracted by considering rolling out of the way... maybe she would have thought ahead to consider a follow-up. Instead she simply has to weather the full assault until Sven's triumphant cry fills the arena.

It hurt, Mika wouldn't deny that, but you don't get into professional wrestling unless you're willing to take the big hits and keep getting back up. And so Rainbow Mika pushes back up to her feet, ignoring all the bruises she'll have tomorrow. She gets up and sets eyes on the Swede.


She charges forward, leaping up into the air as she aims to put both boots square in Sven's chest.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/---====|>>>>>>>\>------\1             Sven

As she slams into Sven with all the force her body can muster, Mika immediately prepares for the quick roll to right herself back up to her feet. The speed with which she moves is obscene, not even offering her opponent a chance to hit the mat before she standing right in front of him, wrapping her arm around his neck and latching him in tight.

With every muscle in her body surging, she hauls him up, pulling him vertical on her shoulder... and then she crouches for barely a second, summoning all the strength in her body to her legs as she launches both her and Sven upward, landing on the top rope at the turnbuckle and holding her position with Sven still upsidedown on her shoulder.


She leaps backward with an incredible arc, managing to get all the way back to the dead center of the ring as she moves to a reclining position in mid-air, somehow still keeping Sven straight up so that the full weight of his body compacts into his spine as his head plows into the mat.

The night of the Warwolf was over.

Exhausted from his comeback surge, Sven Maesters struggles back from his knee to a full stand... just in time for Mika to make the comeback. The spritely young thing comes firing straight for the masked wrestler. Sven tries to dodge, making for a sudden swerve.

It does not come.

He takes the kick straight to the chest, knocking him staggering back. There isn't enough time to react, as he is already dragged up into the air with her. As he hits the turnbuckle, he just has enough time to look... before he is slammed right into the center ring.

Oh, that was a concussion.

Sven lays on the ground, underneath Mika's grip. The fight was fading. The fight was fading. And yet, the wolf had one more trick before he would rest. Groaning under the woman, he twists his arm, writhing it, squirming it. He twists his feet underneath her, trying to get a last springboard in place... and he flexes.

With a burst of power, he explodes up with a punch.

And whether or not Mika was in the path, it did not matter.

Sven Maesters was falling back down unconscious.

COMBATSYS: Sven can no longer fight.

The big problem with being right on top of somebody who is about to throw an attack with everything they have left is that there's really not a lot of room to maneuver. There are very few things you can do, and the first one Mika does is tense up her muscles. Years of wrestling training have taught her to go completely limp or hard as a rock at a moment's notice, and this is most definitely the time to try to be like steel.

That part goes fine, what doesn't go great is her effort to pop up just enough that she's able to intercept the blow on her forearm, the berserker's last blow is just too fast and catches her right in the chest, sending her sprawling backward as it knocks what's left out of her.

Rainbow Mika is left stumbling, struggling to stay standing. It's been a difficult fight, and her body can only take so much punishment.

She can't give up. She can't just drop to the mat!

...suddenly twists her legs, locking them into position in a wide stance, holding herself standing rather than falling backward onto the mat. There is a brief struggle to keep from simply passing out on her feet, but then it hits her:




The sound of the crowd chanting her name after that impressive performance pulls her right back into it. She raises her arm up into the air, pointing her index finger up at the sky.


As the shout fills the arena, the crowd goes wild. The referee hasn't made the official call yet, but the sound of his count can scarcely be heard over the overwhelming uproar. At this point the final call is just a formality.

"The winner, by knockout... RAINBOW MIIIIIIIKAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika has ended the fight here.
