Description: With all of the excitement over Rainbowmania, Howard Enterprises decides to cash in by bringing Rainbow Mika to Howard Arena to face down with Monochrome Jira, remaking the wrestler's debut match with more production values. Will this be a repeat of the original match or has Jira picked up some new moves to go with her designed by commitee ring persona?
Over the past few months since her debut on the scene, Rainbow Mika has had a somewhat miraculous rise to the peaks of popularity. It was helped out by taking a quick lead in the Neo League, but even following a recent string of losses it keeps on going.
Rainbowmania was an off-hand name for it that started in one of the fighting boards on the Internet and managed to reach a more mainstream appeal. Sports shows certainly enjoyed getting an easy name to use whenever they talked about the wrestler's latest matches and filled time with some segments about the growing fandom. Fighting promoters were also pleased to have a catchy name to help sell more seats and recordings of her matches.
For Rainbow Mika herself? It's mostly been exciting to so clearly be able to see that she's reached the fans. The wins were, of course, enjoyable, and all of the media attention was great, but the most important aspect of all of this was proof that all of her training had paid off. The fans were as much a part of her reason to fight as anything else.
And so, when she was offered the opportunity to appear as part of Howard Enterprises' Saturday Night Fight promotion as part of a fight building on Rainbowmania, Rainbow Mika wasn't about to turn it down.
She stands just at the top of the ramp down to the ring, getting settled in as she waits for her cue. Down in the ring another match has just cleared out and the announcer has stepped under the center spotlight.
"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! We are proud to bring out for you tonight one of the most electrifying entertainers in professional fighting. A fighter who has stood at the peak of the Neo League since its inception. Professional wrestling's rising star... RAAAAAAINBOOOOOOOOOW MIIIIIIIIIKAAAAAAA!"
The announcer waves to the top of the ramp as Rainbow Mika's video package starts to play on the titantron accompanied by her theme song. When her cue hits, the wrestler herself bursts out at the top of the ramp, posing in an arm flexing position as blue and white pyrotechnics go off to either side. As one of the camera's moves in front of her, she winks a blows a quick kiss before charging down toward the ring, slapping a few extended hands thrust out from the audience.
Reaching the ring, she does an incredible leap into the air, planting her hands on the top rope as she flips over it to land next to the announcer, then starts to work the perimeter. Climbing up onto one of the turnbuckles, she plants one leg on the top rope and gives a few quick slaps to her ass for the crowd's benefit before hopping back down and settling off to the side.
The last fight Jira had been involved in, many eventful things had happened. She won a free-for-all involving four people, rescued someone's life, made a friendly rivalry, and needed a few hours in the shower before she felt clean again. Many milestones in her life were reached all at once, and now she has a group of people she wants a rematch against... however, it seemed fateful that the Saturday Night Fight arrangers had set one up for her, against Rainbow Mika herself!
Jira hasn't been following the fight circuits beyond her 'guest' signing her up for fights, and hasn't really come into any sense of showmanship other than street clothes and being a good sport, but it seems a stage persona has been thrust upon her. Today, she's fighting in monochrome. With her skintone, eyes, and hair, she's actually fairly monochromatic on-whole, so getting an outfit to accentuate that is not too hard. A white and silver latex bodysuit perfectly fits her looks. With a few surprises in there that'll show up later.
Jira is set up waiting on her ramp as the previous fight ends and the announcer calls in Mika, leaving Jira waiting for her turn almost anxiously. The rainbow-clad lass makes a showy entrance and paces around the ring, makes a nice slap on herself and settles in. Then..
"AAAND her opponent, the girl that marked the start of Rainbowmania - now made into a proper opponent, MONOCHROOOOOOOOME JIRA!"
That's the cue. Jira's guest takes over, bringing the all-white coloured girl down the ramp. But there are no pyrotechnics, and her own highlight reel plays in the background - especially her run in slamfest - and a random choice of theme music.. someone made a nice mix track on that one. Instead of pyrotechnics, Jira's limbs begin to glow white as her guest's psionic energy leaks out through meshed sections on her limbs, and instead of a solid coating of light it looks like a flickering trail of luminous smoke. A neat effect certainly, making her look to be smouldering under that clingy outfit that truly shows off her outrageous chest!
When Jira hits the ring she steps up and rolls over the top rope, slipping along its circumference with her back and giving a nice show of her bust, though it's not intended. Her expression is calm, measured even as she steps into the ring and bows respectfully to the audience, and just as calmly steps into her corner.
As Monochrome Jira is announced, Rainbow Mika stays off to the side, politely giving her opponent an opportunity to play the crowd and introduce herself. There are certain aspects of respect in professional wrestling that are only ever ignored on rare occasions to help build rivalries or surprise the crowd. Even a heel doesn't get to go around interrupting someone's entrance all the time.
As soon as Jira has entered the ring, things start to change. This is the part where Mika steps up toward the center ring. She starts to focus on the the energy in the arena, then slowly pulls her focus down to the ring itself, sensing the flow between herself and Jira, her own aura seeming to pull at Jira's lightly.
She gives Jira a quick, professional nod; there's not really a lot of time to talk with the repeat challenger. Certainly after the match she hopes to congratulate Jira on getting her own career going, especially after that first match in Chinatown managed to kickstart her to fame and incredible heights. Now, however, is the part where she waits for the bell.

Jira doesn't play much onto the crowd, and her aura is especially faint... eaten away and subdued by her guest while she's in this state. Instead, a stronger psionic presence is the trademark of her guest's control. And, of course, the luminous glow radiating from her limbs like tendrils of smoke.
Mika gives Jira a nod, and the gesture is returned. She meets with the other fighter in the middle of the ring and centers herself, giving a calm sigh and a bow before she slides into the low, open stance of her guest's style, waiting for that bell herself and staring up at Mika.

The bell rings.
The response that goes through Mika when she hears that sound in the ring is essentialy Pavlovian. She instantly shifts into the fight, and seeing that her opponent isn't quite as quick on the draw makes it all the easier to decide to make a move. She launches herself backwards, slamming as hard as she possibly can into the ropes to start building up stored energy, locked into place like a slingshot.
Then, just as suddenly, she starts to charge forward with all the speed she can muster, launching herself right at Jira, feet pounding until she's close enough to simply launch herself up into the air. "PARADISE!" She bellows for the crowd as she aims to plant herself right on Jira's shoulders, slamming into Jira's face with all the momentum her body has stored up to knock her off her feet and slam her onto her back, pinning her head underneath the blonde wrestler's body as her thighs squeeze in on either side of the white-haired woman's head.
From this position it's an interesting motion that brings Mika up into a handstand, holding Jira with her legs, dragging her up above her body... and then whipping back down to power Jira's head into the mat before she legs go.

The bell rang, and Jira was waiting for her opponent to make the first move. She might be in her stance, but she's far from immobile, making an aggressive feint at Mika's retreat, then rooting herself and keeping her eyes locked on the other fighter's movement. Bracing herself for the hit, positioning herself just before contact and taking the slam onto the mat. Both of them- as it were. She does quickly shake out of the hold with no small amount of effort and takes a small distance back to line up. Made more obvious by the stronger, thicker exhause light leaking from the mesh on her right leg.
Jira makes a quick clockwise rotation, slowly pushing her leg out. Once she makes a half turn she jumps up and makes a single, full spiral in the air and raises her leg high, swinging her weight into a downward drop to slam her heel at Mika's head as she comes down, and pulling herself closer as she rises into a crouched position immediately after!

It was a good hit, Rainbow Mika was a bit surprised at first that Jira didn't make any big moves to get out of the way. Of course, by the time she's put Jira back on the ground, it occurs to Mika (somewhate late) that Jira didn't get out of the way because she didn't intend to. By the time she recognizes her opponent starting up her maneuver, it's all Mika can do to tense herself up, lock her joints in position in an effort to avoid getting slammed into the mat, hopefully getting in a quick retaliation of her own.
There wasn't enough time to get properly prepared, and Rainbow Mika eats the hit, slamming into the mat.
"Not bad," the wrestler offers as she pushes herself back up, a grin on her face. Taking a hit certainly isn't enough to upset Mika, it just means that the match probably won't be boring. Of course, she has to do her part to keep things going.
Once back up on her feet, Rainbow Mika lunges in at Jira, drawing her arm back into position as she closes the distance, then launching it forward as hard as she can manage, aiming to catch Jira in the jaw with an open palm uppercut.

Jira too was surprised that her attack connected. But even if she was, it didn't show. She was already in a waiting position for Mika to act, eyes locked onto the wrestler for any movement. A brief hinting of a smile comes to her face, her foe wasn't disheartened. Good, this could turn out fun.
Jira readies herself in that low crouch, venting out more light as Mika lunges in with that uppercut of hers. Jira's first action is to grab Mika's assailing arm by the wrist and elbow with her hands, then to plant her right foot onto Mika's stomach as she comes even closer, usin the momentum to roll back and swing the wrestler overhead, then slam her onto the mat with an explosive pulse of pain-laced psionic energy before she releases Mika and hops off nearer to the center, taking another, higher stance with her palms facing forward.
"A little slow, Mika-san." the dual voices call out. "I know you can do better."
That certainly wasn't the best option at the moment. It would have been a lot better if she hadn't just been rolled and slammed into the mat.
Of course, it looked good for the crowd, and that's the more important part.
Pushing back up to her feet, there's a grin on her face. "Of course I can do better than that, and I intend to show you just what I can do." Her hand whips up, a finger extended to point right at Jira as she stands in an overdramatic posture. "But if I'm going to show you how much better I can do, then you're going to have to show me how much better you can be! Got it?!"
There's really no waiting for a response as she suddenly surges forward at full speed, attempting to blast past Jira's guard and lock her in place, planting both hands on her shoulders as she brings her head into to headbutt Jira, bounce back slightly, and slam forward again. Each blow seems designed to push Jira further back while giving Mika room to hit again, until she draws back for a big one and puts her whole body into plowing her forehead into Jira's, hopefully knocking her senseless.
Once the battle of the hard heads is finished, she attempts to swing her arm up over Jira's neck, drawing her into a bent over position as Mika raises her finger up to the sky. "DY-NA-MITE!" She shouts as she launches forward, throwing her body out from under her as she uses her weight to bash Jira's chin into the mat.

Jira smirks and gives an understanding, and agreeing nod to Mika. A challenge for the best? Easy enough. However, Mika's advance only makes Jira tighten her guard, and locks the fighter into it. Giving Jira little choice than to defend, anguishedly, against each of Mika's headbutts, and avoiding her Dynamite finish!
By the time of that final ones her arms become numb, more than normal, and drop rather quickly to her sides to get their breath of oxygen, and the rest of her body drops down too. But she's far from out, her drop is only to partly disguise her slow, heavy counterclockwise sweep with her left leg, hoping to trip up Mika enough to pounce onto the wrestler and slam her to the mat with a heavy elbow strike, and following up up by locking her arm and swinging her overhead to smack onto her face on the mat. With Jira slowly rising to her feet afterwards and dusting off her arms, and giving them a healthy shaking while catching her breath, remaining guarded.

Not as clean as Rainbow Mika would have wanted it, but at least she got her word in and would hopefully bring a bit more excitement to the match. With none of the headbutts hitting home, Mika is forced to draw back and reassess the situation, waiting to see what comes next...
...and when she sees Jira start to wind up, Rainbow Mika's face is beaming.
She starts by tensing up her body, preparing to eat a hit or two to get into position. As Jira sweeps for the legs, Mika takes the full blow and redirects it to knock her backward, out of the pounce as she rolls a good distance away. With her opponent recovering from the whiffed follow-up, Rainbow Mika launches herself up into the air, catching Jira's head between her thighs and using the force of her body to haul her up off the ground, flip her around in the air, and then toss her head first into the mat while Mika lands somewhat less scathed from the exchange.
"Not bad, but I know you've got more than just that."
Wait, then was the floor the ceiling? Was closer to Jira's thoughts of that reply to her whiffed attack, from Mika's slam. She's disoriented and takes a few staggering steps back, ow. She shakes her head and glances up at Mika with a nod, her left hand begins to glow and shine brightly.
That's the only warning she gives before quickly bringing her arm back and making a nice toss to Mika. The threat of this gesture isn't made immediately obvious. Until the ball of energy blinks into being in the air, flickering on its path towards Mika while Jira rushes up behind it, her whole suit starting to glow with her psionic energies...

One thing about professional wrestling is that projectiles are somewhat looked down upon... or very looked down upon. In wrestling it was far more focused on what you could do with your own body, and the very act of throwing an object, even if that object was made out of energy that you created, was viewed on the same level as using a foreign object. It was a heel move, to say the least.
Of course, heel moves are a thing that every wrestler prepares to deal with to some extent. In Rainbow Mika's particular case, this meant that she was ready to put both arms up in a crossblock to absorb the blow, leaving a faint glow on her arms as they're tossed aside.
"YOU PROMISED ME YOUR BEST, AND I'M NOT GOING TO LEAVE UNTIL I GET IT!" She bellows, raising both arms, drawing her hands into fist on either side of her as she settles into the flow of energy from the crowd, building herself up to bring the fight back up to a peak if her opponent can't manage it.

Jira's charge immediately stops short when Mika foils her attack and draws up the high ground, emotionally. Jira diverts her dash and comes around on the right instead, moving up as if to hit Mika- but she feints. She drops into a slide to grab Mika's left leg and swing her own momentum around, whether the wrestler is tripped or not, Jira aims to plant both her feet against her side- explosively- and knock her onto the mat with heavy impact from the kick.
From that point she hops back onto her feet, staying quite close to Mika.. even if she misses, she tumbles back up to her feet and lunges to close distance between herself and the wrestler.

Still not what Rainbow Mika was looking for. Mika doesn't even need to see the attack start up to realize that this is a disappointment.
As Jira lunges in at her, Mika instead plants her arms on her opponent's shoulders and launches herself up and over Jira, landing in behind her and suddenly snagging her around the midsection with both arms, clenched in tight. It's not entirely optimal, grabbing somebody who has a bunch of energy burning off their limbs, but Mika grits through a few less than optimal kicks as she launches backward with all the force she can manage, and then bring's Jira's head down right into the turnbuckle as she lands in the traditional suplex arch.
It's a hell of a rainbow, even if it's mostly made of blue and white.
Jira's in a daze, falling off the turnbuckle and slowly staggering to her feet. She looks like she has a nosebleed, but what's coming from her face glows a bright, sparkling white as well as her eyes and hair. Unusually bright. Her entire suit is positively luminous, leaving a trail of light in the wake of her movements, trailing behind her. She immediately dashes up to Mika, just to lay on hands..
But that in and of itself isn't her attack, what follows is a transfer of that energy- sending out a torrent of the pain-laced psionic energy to invade Mika like a taser, sent racing out and covering the pair in a bubble of shining, pure white for a moment as the transfer goes full throttle. During its brief few seconds of existance, for those in direct contact, it directly feeds pain into their flesh and a loud, immaterial cry of suffering. Jira then staggers back and the field of psionic energy drops along with it, she goes down to one knee, eyes on Mika as she fights to maintain consciousness.

This is what Rainbow Mika had been waiting for. She can feel it even as Jira starts her attack... this is going to be something worthwhile. This is what she'd been waiting for.
As Jira comes flying at her, Mika begins to tense up her muscles... but more than that, she carefully plants her feet on the mat, focusing her energy... it doesn't take much for Rainbow Mika to realize that this isn't just some simple strike. She thrusts her arm up, preventing the energy from hitting her anywhere overly vital. She then focuses on the flow of power, as intense as it is, she starts to will it down to her feet, out of her body.
It isn't easy, especially not for somebody whose primary use of personal spirit is getting energized to move harder and faster than normal... but she manages it.
"That's more like it!" Mika shouts, basking in the sensation of the crowd cheering. Quite honestly, most of them don't know what just happened, but it looked incredible, and they're both still standing (barely). This is why Rainbow Mika fights, and just hearing the chanting crowd is enough to make her forget all about just how much this match has taken out of her. She's reinvigorated.
"Well then... let's finish this fight!" Mika shouts as she suddenly lunges to snare Jira around the waist again, squeezing her in tight against her chest as she whips backward in another suplex, aiming to firmly plant Jira's head into the mat.

Jira's almost out as it is, and Mika's resistance earns a nod of approval from Jira just before she disengages and takes her stance. But Mika's lunge is probably a mistake, wordlessly the girl springs upwards and lets out a quick twitch of her torso, sending a clenched fist at Mika's stomach in a straight jab!
The psionically enhanced attack looks more like a luminous arm just reaching out and nestling in place at Mika's abdomen, with an unseen force behind it shoving the wrestler back to stop her approach and buy Jira a few seconds to get to her feet and let out a calm breath to center herself.
"We aren't done yet. I hope you aren't either." they murmur to Mika.
The hit to the gut is certainly enough to take the wind out of Mika for a bit, she stumbles backwards, wincing painfully as she tries to catch her breath.
She doesn't, but she's also trained to fight in the worst possible circumstances, so she still manages to pull herself back up to her feet. "It takes more than that to put me out of the fight!" Her voice /is/ quieter than normal, but still loud enough that the audience can pick it up. It's incredible what training for a few years to be a fighter and a performer can do for you.
"Let's see if you can keep up with this, though!" She somewhat manages to shout as she charges into the ropes... then bounces off to charge into the opposite side, back and forth, just narrowly moving past Jira until at last she hits the ropes without turning around... and then goes flying backwards with all the speed her body can muster, arms and legs folding as she turns into a Mika missle with an ass payload aimed to knock Jira in the head.

Jira seems glad to see this attack's speed... but that look fades as there's a blue ass streaking for her face. She's had enough butt business to d-. She's knocked back and onto the ground under Mika's rump, looking a little still-er than normal.
Even though her consciousness is in question, Jira's body rises up into a stand on its own like a marionette being pulled along on a string. She moves rather quickly, all four of her arms glowing a bright white as she does a quick clockwise turn and swings both her arms at Mika, sending two crescents of psionic energy from close range, then does a quick backflip and launces a larger, conjoined crescent from her legs before sticking her landing. Then abruptly collapses as though her invisible 'strings' were cut. Despite being out cold, her eyes follow Mika and she slowly breathes, staring to see how the wrestler reacts to the three shockwaves. Don't worry folks, they'll all dissipate before they even hit the ropes! Her nosebleed looks a bit worse, and no longer glowing white- only a few slivers of the luminous energy are visible.

Going whole hog like that when you're currently winded from a gut punch is probably not the best idea, but if nothing else it's managed to knock Jira down.
Not that that actually gives Rainbow Mika an opportunity to catch her breath. No, she can feel the surge in the atmosphere just moments before its coming at her. Jira's building something big. She does her absolute best to hope up off the mat and roll out of the way in time to avoid the hits, but her legs are too sluggish. There's nothing she can do as she's hit, knocked up into the air... and then comes down on the mat.
There's a bit of a pause while the officials wait for one of the fighters to get back up, then the referee starts to count. It's a slow march up to 10, but when he hits it the bell is quickly rung.
