Circuit of Champions - PFW: Western Master - Ken Masters vs Urien

Description: Urien challenges Ken Masters for the Western belt, and gets a much harder fight than he bargained for. << Winner: Urien >>

"... Seriously? We gotta' do this here?"

The Illustrious and Awesome Ken Masters is standing at the edge of tomorrow as he looks out across the arena from backstage. He's decked out in his signature red gi and there's just a bit of a messy look to his hair as he's focused on, right now, looking at the crowd that's gathered to see the Title Bout that has occurred. "I really don't dig wrestling rings. There's no style. There's no pizzazz. It's just a square with some ropes around it. Ugh." Ken rolls his eyes a bit, before he steps back behind the curtain even further.

Out in the arena itself, the scantily clad ring announcer of curvy justice brings her microphone up to her lips. "Ladies and Gentlemen! Tonight's Main Event!" The crowd is going absolutely bonkers at this point. They are loud and proud. "The PFW Circuit of Champions Western Master Belt is on the line!" The crowd gets even louder and prouder. There are signs being waved and people are on their feet because why wouldn't they be?

"Introducing first..." That cues up the following track through the arena's loudspeakers: When that music hits the entire arena explodes into epic level cheering. The ring announcer struggles to keep up with the sheer volume that is going on right now. "... from San Francisco, California. YOUR PFW Western Champion. The Rising Dragon himself: KEN MASTERS!"

Up on the stage an explosion of pyrotechnics comes from down below as Ken Masters arrives from below, Dragon Punching his way to his feet. He lands on the stage with his back to the ring and the crowd as the pyrotechnics continue to explode all around him. The varying shades of red and yellow just seem to fit with his arrival so well. He keeps his head lowered through this process before he turns and looks over his shoulder, flashing a big grin. He winks and the arena explodes once again.

Ken finally spins around and takes off in a brisk jog towards the ring. His sparring gloved hands slap against the outstretched hands of fans as he makes his arrival. He picks up speed as he nears the ring, leaping up and somersaulting over the top rope, landing with one fist down and in the center of the ring. He flips his hair as he looks back up and out at the crowd, all the while his music starts to fade.

"... okay. I lied. This is gonna' be awesome." Ken mutters this to himself as he pops up to his feet and backs towards a corner to allow his opponent the same respect and courtesy for his entrance.

It seems probably strange to Ken Masters at first hearing that a man named 'Urien' is going to come and fight him. As recently as a few months ago, he was a complete unknown in the fighting world. But he has proved his strength in the Neo League and Saturday Night Fight with a series of crushing victories, and earned his right to challenge for the belt by dominating the preliminaries and assessments that require a formal challenge at the regional level. Whether Ken has done any research on the man or not is the real question, however; after all, the first impression might be he's a small fry. Ken's had the belt for quite awhile, and the occasional challenger was always struck down with the energetic flair the famous man is always known for.
Today, Urien intends to change that permanently. He's dressed in a simple pair of blue trousers and a dark crimson dress shirt, over which is a black jacket. Fine loafers finish the simple but stylish ensemble, as he waits in the challenger's area. Spitting on the ground, he glowers ahead. He's never going to be on this side of the ring again. Ken Masters... the best in the nation of America, and one of the strongest Western fighters alive. Perhaps he can give Urien the thrill he desires...!
Once Ken's theatrics are over, the announcer introduces the next. "Our next challenger, the mysterious man from Greece, with an explosive fighting record! The man with the self-proclaimed unbreakable Iron Body, URIEN!!"
'Iron Man' begins to blare through the speakers at that, flame roaring up from the four ringposts as the huge Greek struts out. Many female fans have come to admire Ken, but it's hard not to have the eye drawn to Urien. He's handsome in a much different way, a body sculpted by power, carved by the Gods themselves, with muscles that seem almost gaudily unrealistic for a living being to possess.
Crouching down, Urien leaps up when he reaches the ring, landing hard enough to shake the entire thing. Dents are beneath his feet; just how heavy IS this man? "GREETINGS, INGRATES. BEHOLD, AS I BREAK YOUR CHAMPION BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES!!" Well, it certainly seems as if he's ready and willing to start talking crap to the crowd. "Don't disappoint me, boy..." Urien growls, turning to face Ken as the rules are announced by the ringmaster. "Or I'll do more than crush you!!"

Now, Ken Masters is all for some trash talk. That much is very clear and obvious from the way he has carried himself throughout his Fighting Entertainment career. In fact, he's come to be known as something of a witty banter specialist during his fights and title defenses. Still, though, even he's a little bit perturbed by the sudden explosion of words (and the heaviness) of Urien. Ken just raises an eyebrow as he watches the Greek Monstrosity and gives a brief shake of his head.

"Dude." Ken's tone suggests that he's not exactly happy about this guy deciding that he wants to try and talk trash to the crowd that has gathered to watch them display their epic fighting talents and prowess. He even raises a hand and shakes a finger back and forth to indicate just how wrong that this Urien is for talking trash to the Ken Masters Fan Club. "First of all, boy? Come on. I /know/ you can do better than that. At least I hope you can." Ken has fallen back into one of his classic heel bouncing stances, since the bell has rung and now he's ready to get down with his bad self. His fancy footwork has him bouncing around the ring a little bit, his eyes lingering on Urien for the duration of his witty banter, sizing him up and attempting to read as much as he can about his opponent. Ken Masters hasn't done his homework, that's for sure. He never does. He can learn more from being in the ring with an opponent than knowing anything about them, historically.

"And second of all?" And that's when Ken takes off in a quick dash across the ring. Once a step close enough, he stops and spins backwards, reversing his direction and swinging out his right leg in an attempt to catch Urien with a roundhouse kick. Ken's smiling the entire time, uttering the rest of his banter, "What the hell is an ingrate anyway? Have you been tanning with the thesaurus again?" Oh Ken.

"You want to see me do better, maggot?" Urien states through clenched teeth, before laughing in a way that seems completely unhinged. He assumes a strange stance, one that is oddly loose and mobile for a man of his huge stature. One might expect him to settle closer to the ground, but with his own extreme weight that's not required. "I don't even NEED my real power for someone like you!!" He maneuvers to the center of the ring, his wild eyes following Ken. Barely. This man is fast... much faster than he expected. He had no interest in seeing any of the man's fights, only knowing he's supposed to be a rival to that dog who somehow won the World Warrior tournament. Mercy. Hah. To lose to that... it is no wonder Sagat vanished from the face of the earth.
The whirling roundhouse is seen by Urien, who suddenly shifts in an explosive motion. His forehead impacts the heel of Ken's foot dead center, at the hardest part of the skull... stopping the blow dead. And, the Champion might find, it's a very painful thing to hit. "Is that all you got?!"
Whirling, he then lunges forward before rearing back, stamping down a leading foot before attempting to slam his forehead right into Ken's face with all the force he can muster, in an attempt to send him staggering backwards!! He's got split skin where the heel hit, a single line of blood running down to his nose... but in terms of damage, such is completely harmless. From the lash of his tongue to taste it, that might have even been intentional...!

[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////// ]
Urien            0/-------/------=|====---\-------\0      Ken Masters

Ken winces slightly at the connection of his heel to the forehead of the Greek Beast that has chosen to do battle with the Red Beast that Ken is sometimes known as. He actually smirks, though, as he recovers and spins fully around to face his opponent. His quickness is probably going to be his saving grace, Ken is realizing, as he deals with this unpredictable opponent. He hasn't fought him before so this is going to be worth the price of admission.

And then some.

That's when Ken reads Urien's next move. As that forehead comes in his direction, the champion backpedals just a half-step and raises a gloved hand up and FLICKS the split skin of the Greek Monster's forehead. Of course, while this is definitely just something he's doing to play to the crowd and make everything seem that much more easy and in control, Ken's backpedaling is what has saved him from having some sort of broken finger. His leaning and balance has taken some of the velocity out of the aggressive headbutt.

"Pretty much." Ken responds, stepping further back and then lifting himself into the air. One after another, his bare feet come swinging in the direction of the top of Urien's skull as Ken performs his patented wheel kick. There's some extra 'oomph' on it, as well as a burst of speed it would seem, as Ken adds some flavorful quipping with his latest attempt at grabbing the upper hand in this battle. "I mean, unless you wanna' count my money, my yachts, my homes, my girls..."

Urien            0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0      Ken Masters

Surprisingly, what Ken does manages something that is rather rare in Urien's fights; unexpected pain. When he can endure thunderous blows without flinching, something as mundane as slapping a bleeding wound makes him spasm, ruining the flow of his attack and bringing up his foot. "You little...!" He grips his forehead beside the imprinted jewel, only to find an attack rocketing towards him that he's not going to be able to simply barrel through. At the last moment he does a cross-arm block, and...
Ken's impact skids Urien backwards a good foot and a half. There's skid marks beneath his loafers, and it felt like moving a boulder. "..." Urien looks down, before suddenly laughing. "Excellent... you leaping little monkey!! You've got some fangs to you after all! FINE! YOU WIN!! I'LL FIGHT YOU FOR REAL!!"
Suddenly Urien's arms spread, and cackling madly there's a huge wash of chi that thunders in the confines of the ring. His clothing vaporizes beneath it, blown in all directions as nothing but scrap, even his loafers burning away with a hiss of scorched leather. He's wearing only a silver thong then; before the tan turns deep bronze, and he begins to transform.
The armored skin flows along his arms and legs, up across his neck and turning his hair stark white. Hissing in pleasure at the feel of his full might being bared, lidded eyes turn back towards Ken. "Your only hope of beating me was to bore me to death... let's see if you regret being mildly entertaining...!!"

Urien            0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0      Ken Masters

Ken is back on his feet and across the ring, keeping his distance while the chi-plosion makes short work of his opponent's clothes. He raises an arm to protect himself and his vision from what is probably going to be some random act of nakedness. But when the chi is over there's something much worse.

"Ugh. Nooooo. Dude! Come on! Put your clothes back on!" Ken shakes his head and it looks like he's trying to keep from laughing. "No, seriously, what's up with the thong, man? You look like a Liposuction'd E. Honda, man." Ken can't stop the laughter and the chuckling begins to turn into a full on laugh at this point.

Still, though, Ken is not about to just let the sudden sight become a threat to his belt. He's got quite a bit on the line here and he's not willing to just let it all go to waste because some tanned dude in a skinny diaper is trying to make him pay for being awesome. "Either way. Glad to see you're more awake now, dude." Ken takes a couple of quick steps towards Urien, before swinging out with a moderately average kick of stylish justice. "Too bad I'm gonna' have to put you to bed!" Maybe he's just trying to see the difference between Suit Urien and Naked Urien. Besides, y'know, ew.

Urien            0/-------/-----==|=======\-------\1      Ken Masters

Urien simply resumes his stance once more, keeping his front knee slightly raised and his forearms roughly level with his head. It's reminiscent of Muay Thai but highly modified, and to Ken's masterful eyes he could easily tell this is someone of extremely high technique... or is he? It's strange. His instinct is savage and wild, but he has an in-built refinement that can only be done with thousands of hours of training. Although which of the two is the true Urien is pretty clear to tell, someone did a good job burning the secret arts into his very body and soul.
"...!! You dare laugh at my perfect body?!" Urien states through clenched teeth. "You only wish every inch of you were as absolutely sculpted as myself!!" The trashtalk falls on deaf ears, as he follows Ken's movements. He's fast... difficult to onslaught directly. But the moment he approaches for another kick, Urien snaps into motion.
The kick thumps harmlessly off a shoulder that's driving upwards. A fist slams into Ken's ribs in a short upper, knuckles digging in. It feels like a train, far too much weight to be natural, leaving aside the iron feeling of the kick ricocheting off. "DIE, INSECT!!" he roars, shifting to hurl the other man away to the opposite turnbuckle with the follow-through from his punch!!

Ken doesn't know where he went wrong. Honestly, he doesn't. He can feel the burning sensation of pain as he gets rocked something fierce by a punch that clearly should be the cease and desist of all future quarrels. Ribs cracked or not, Ken sails clean across the ring and smacks into the turnbuckle. The rebounding off such has him hitting the ring and he grunts from the combined pain of hitting the canvas and the pain coursing through his body as well.

"Son of a bitch. Nice." Ken pushes up to his feet and attempts to shake off some of the pain and whatnot that's flowing through his body at the moment. He's still got a smile on his face though. Ken actually likes it when he gets hit. It makes for a more dramatic encounter. And people like Ken thrive on the drama and the action. "Let's see if you can go the distance, though." Ken winks at Urien and then nods downward. As if there's a reason he hasn't brought his hands back up into plain sight yet.

That would be the crackling of chi energy between his hands. As it grows and expands, Ken plants that leading foot and extends those arms. The crowd grows more and more insane as they recognize what's happening from the first movement. That chi forms into a fireball as it begins to leave the open palms of Ken Masters. The entire arena launches into a verbal explosion along with Ken.

Urien            0/-------/----===|=======\=------\1      Ken Masters

"Hahahah... you still on your feet? Not bad, worm. But you'll be kneeling before this is over!! I'm the future emperor. And the world will acknowledge me not long after this, when I move to rip the belt from the hands of that impudent King!!"
When the challenge is laid for Urien, he suddenly slams down his arms. "Such a pathetic paff of energy... will do nothing to me!! CRUSH!!" Crackling down his arm, he builds up his own burst of magnetic chi, but underestimated the speed of the hadouken's rush across the ring. Cursing, he's forced to unleash it before fully building it up. For a brief moment the projectiles clash, crackles of lightning and flame in all directions...
And then Ken's surges through, a surprised Urien failing to defend himself before being struck dead in the chest. He's sent staggering backwards, thunking into the ropes. He actually begins to continue, stretching them out before a hand reaches and grips the turnbuckle, which tilts a full four inches backwards from dealing with his weight.
Getting back upright, Urien feels the burnt skin upon the front of his adonic chest, and then his grin widens. "EXCELLENT!!"

By the time that Urien rights himself from the sudden chi fireball of sneaky victory, Ken is already in the air. Steps were taken and Ken launches himself into the air, immediately spinning with inner-chi enhanced speed as his body forms that classic right degree angle and he extends a leg. The helicopter spinning of his body is aimed to carry him across the rest of the ring and into the personal space of his opponent. See, Ken is hoping to catch him more off-guard than usual. He's hoping that this sudden explosion of fireballs and kicks will allow him the chance to put some distance between his skills and Urien's. Ken would admit, if he wasn't attempting to be stylishly sneaky right now, that Urien's talents are better than he expected. But there's a reason why Ken is the champion and he's aiming to show Urien, and the arena full of his fans, just what that reason is.

Plus, back to back memorable moves? Definite highlight reel stuff. And Ken Masters is all about the highlight reel.

It's true; Ken is rushing forward without giving much time for witty banter or other mocking derisals. The sudden helicopter kick catches him off-guard, but rather then attempt to defend, he instead slams his feet into the ring and presses forward. As the cry for Ken's assault rings out, many of those near the front of the crowd pushing up to their feet to watch, the multiple kicks begin tearing into Urien... and each probably hurts like a bitch. "MY IRON BODY WON'T BREAK TO YOU!!" he roars, before twisting his entire upper body into a brutal overhead punch, aiming to slam Ken right out of the air before the whirlwind assault finishes and knock him straight into the middle of the ring like a ton of bricks!! The commentators are quiet and dumbstruck for a few moments, before resuming the feedback once more. "We're--This is not the sort of fight we expected!! It's still anyone's game here--Can Ken defend himself?!"

Urien            1/-----==/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2      Ken Masters

Maybe Ken needs a few more lessons in witty banter. Because it seems that Urien has the real punchlines.

Knocked clean out of his Hurricane Kick, Ken Masters gets rocked something fierce. That overhead punch connects with Ken's chin and he gets sent sailing towards the center of the ring. The velocity is equal to the pain inflicted as Ken's body crashes down to the canvas. While the ring would normally have a little bit of give, the impact of Ken's body crunches the ring just a bit, a dent forming beneath the smart ass and his crumpled body.

Ken crawls his way out of the dented mat in an attempt to get closer to Urien. Ken Masters doesn't quit until he's not conscious and that is being shown right now as he attempts to get to his feet. Each attempt fails, though, as he just seems to keep slipping back down to one knee. Each time, each stumble, bringing him a bit closer to Urien. And then, finally, one final lackluster standing attempt has Ken down on one knee, crouched and breathing a little bit too heavily. And when he looks up, there's literal flames in his eyes.

Wait, what?

Ken flashes a grin and launches himself upwards with tremendous fury and speed, his fist and arm engulfed in flames as he roars his ascent, his body twisting and twirling with furious justice and style. The physical actions almost vacuum-like in nature, aiming to pull Urien in for some physical pain experience of his own!

"Worthless... you think a thousand biting ants has any hope of damaging me?!" Urien states, breathing heavily. Smoke continues to curl from the chi blast earlier as the man begins to march forward, no longer raising his guard. He seems to think the fight is nearly done, given the saunter that takes place. "You'll never scar this Iron Body---?!"
Well, it's Urien's turn for the smartass to regret it. The fist impacts Urien's tensed body, as he attempts to increase his weight and stop it through sheer mass. Two, four, eight times heavier... but it's not enough. Blood erupts from his mouse as he's launched skywards, flames roaring into him as he reaches a good three meters up. Down he goes, crashing upon the ring so hard he literally goes through it, bursting a hole in the canvas and heavy wood to thump down to the ground below. It simply smokes where he was then... certainly nobody could have survived that?
A few seconds later, behind where Ken lands, the canvas erupts as he leaps upwards. He's got a bleeding gash torn into his chest, and seems absolutely furious. "YOU SCUM!!" His foot suddenly shoots out, heel seeking to find Ken's stomach and then launch him away with a brutal standing straight kick, before he staggers forward in obvious pain. He had to do that RIGHT after saying it was impossible, didn't he?!

Urien            1/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|>>>>>>>\-------\0      Ken Masters

Ken doesn't get dizzy when he's using his amazing skills. But he does, sometimes, lose track of his opponents. So when he turns around to gloat, he's met with the heel of Urien's foot. It doubles him over enough that Ken's eyes go wide for one brief pausing moment. Short enough for Ken to realize the error in his movements and then he's being flung across what's left of the ring. Ken doesn't even stay in the destroyed ring, his body sailing clear through the ropes and smashing into the barrier that protects the fans from having to deal with all this nonsense. Or protects the fighters from the fans. It could really be a combination of both.

"Scum? Seriously?" Ken pushes himself up to his feet again, taking a moment to close his eyes and breathe. He's got some distance between himself and Urien so he's going to use it. "Dude. You're the one wearing a thong to a title fight!" Ken steps back into one of his bouncy fighting stances, this time getting a couple of pats on the back from some nearby fans.

"Bring it on, Wrong Said Fred."

"Everyone's scum... to me..." Urien states with a low growl, flexing his fingers slowly and then cracking his neck to the side. The battle is nearing it's conclusion, and he can sense that Ken is being cornered. But still -- there's no longer any true underestimating. If nothing else, Urien fully believes that Masters earn this belt and defended it rightfully. He's fought a half dozen people, and even the titanic Sol Badguy did not pressure him to this extent. "So it's only natural... for you to be also!!"
And then Urien leaps forward, bringing back his right arm with a roar. Intent on swinging in a brutal arc and attempting to land a fierce strike to Ken as he descends, flowing towards a short hook to the midsection afterwards to fold him over his fist. "The fight's well past the halfway point..." the announcers comment. "Ken seems to be against the ropes... but this might be his time for a COMEBACK!!"

Urien            2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\1      Ken Masters

Such POWER is hard to mount some sort of defense against. Especially when one's head has been woozy from quite a while ago. The illustrious Ken Masters may be capable of talking mad shit but there comes a time when all that talking must be silenced.

This is that time.

Ken catches the full fierceness of the fist that crunches his head something painfully. Ken's knees buckle beneath the pressure and his teeth chatter against the pain, only for his gut to get rendered useless through another painful body shot. Doubled over is not even the right word, as Ken's legs threaten to give out underneath him.

"Ugh... wha?" It sounds like even Ken cannot believe what is happening. He narrows those eyes of his, pushing back to give himself some room and he stumbles right into the announce table. He moves a hand up to move some of his hair from his eyes and he points off in Urien's direction. "Let's end this." Ken states, curling his lips up into a smirk. "Because I'm thinkin' you're in need of a diaper change, man."

Ken steps forward and it is probably pure adrenaline that has him swirling across the floor towards Urien with a series of roundhouse kicks that come so fast after each other it's hard to read. Connecting or not, Ken's body sends him right up into the air after that fifth roundhouse kick of comeback justice to strike with a rising hurricane kick of vertical deployment.

Maybe Ken's luck will turn around!

Urien            2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|>>>>>>>\-------\0      Ken Masters

Breathing heavily, Urien is in a worst position than he expected; despite brutally tearing into Ken multiple times, he's still standing and able to fight back. Is this the tenacity of a champion...? For a brief moment, Urien ponders if he'll even win. And then erupts into an even greater rage, roaring loudly into the sky. "I'll kill you!!" Rushing forward, the first of those heels finds him right in the face...
And knocks Urien back. He's finally stemmed the man's brutal onslaught, although the state of Ken's feet is going to be in question afterwards. Blood spatters out from his mouth, before the brutal series of kicks starts to send him staggering backwards. The final upwards blow strikes multiple times, flames whirling over his already battered body as Urien hurtles back to the mat, thumping into a turnbuckle and obliterating it, the ropes on one corner effectively gone.
"Enough..." He states, slowly drawing back to his feet. Multiple dents are within his bronze form now, and blood drips from his mouth. "ENOUGH..." He then suddenly begins to roar with power, the ring and much of the surrounding ring beginning to shake with power. Before lightning ripples across him, and he snaps upright, hurtling a sudden square of energy at Ken.
"AEGIS REFLECTOR!!" A moment later, he kicks forward; trying to cause Ken to dodge, so he'll fall right into his trap...!

And then grasps Ken by the throat, before twisting around and then hurtling him straight into the wall of crackling energy. A moment later Urien rushes forward, savagely driving his shoulder into the hapless man as Ken is caught crackling and hissing in the Aegis. But it holds firm, as a cackling Urien twists, beginning to punch the caught man multiple times, lunging up into a brutal headbutt, and then firing a point-blank blast of his cylindrical chi. Just as the field dissipates, he plucks Ken from the air and lifts him up, before dropping into a sitting powerbomb, to slam Ken down before flinging him away as he rises. "Learn your place... hah... trash...!!"

It's A Trap!

Ken Masters doesn't read traps too well. He's sort of a fly by the seat of the heat of battle kind of guy. So the fact that there's energy needing to be dodged is about as obvious as he can see right now. Which is why he's already spinning around the energy square and "Urk--" right into the grip of Urien.

Ken's throat is practically crushed by the Greek Grip and before Ken can even understand what is happening, he's feeling the full fury of such powerful chi that he just attempted to get out of the way of. Before he can even recover, there's a powerful shoulder knocking all of his remaining wind from his body. Fist after fist drives into Ken's body, shaking him from one direction to the other and a headbutt of severe brutality crushes Ken's spirit almost as much as it does his nose. The blood that pours is of little consolation as more chi gets blasted into Ken, rendering his soul just as useless as his fists.

But wait! There's More! Pain, that is.

Ken gets yanked up and flipped, barely conscious as he's slammed down onto the arena floor, his back cracking in a way that it shouldn't. Flung away like yesterday's newspaper, Ken's body falls and remains there on the floor, unmoving, but in a state of complete and utter disarray. The chances of movement are slim. The breathing is minimal. The defeat is solidified.

The Red Beast has been tamed.

Now, please, somebody get the stretcher out here...

Pant. Pant. Pant.
Urien is impressed. That wasn't easy; most people he strikes like that crumple almost immediately. But he's wearing the badges of pride that Ken's carved into his frame, and is feeling lightheaded all the same. If he hadn't transformed... there is no doubt he'd be the one crumpled on the floor. He doesn't feel satisfied at all by this; somehow, there's a sense that Ken wasn't at his prime. Did he eat a bad hamburger or something the night before...? The footwork he showed at the beginning vanished after the brutal blow into his ribs. Perhaps an injury toppled the fighter... No matter.
"I'm not satisfied." he finally states, the announcers ringing the bell and bringing out the belt. Rather than allow them to put it on, Urien simply snags it and throws it over his shoulder. "Fight me again, at your best... heh. You hear me in there...? Worst case... You can have it when I move up in the world...!"
Wobblingly, Urien jumps down from the broken ropes, and makes his way out -- from the Champion's walkway. Nobody is really cheering him, his savage fighting style and tendency to talk down hardly popular.
"You can do it, Ken!!" "Take back your belt!!" "Don't let a man like that keep it!!" is called down, as the medics with the stretcher rush inside to carefully place Ken upon it and cart him towards the medical wing. His fans, at least, were not swayed by the loss in the slightest!
