Description: Rainbow Mika is all set to be the headliner in an throwdown with one of her rivals from Iwashigahama Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (IJWPW)...at least until a misunderstanding brings an angry Marduk to the ring. It's still a fight the audience won't soon forget, but this is one some would probably rather not remember.
LIVE, TONIGHT ONLY: Iwashigahama Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (IJWPW) Presents: Rainbow Mika VS. Maple Storm! (Sponsored by CWA)
Fliers fill the streets and wastepaper baskets as they have for the last week, and hordes of cheering fans have come out as RAINBOW MANIA has swept their hometown! Mika may have had a poor showing in her last CWA Riot match against THE WARWOLF, SVEN MAESTERS, but that hasn't done much to curbe the enthusiasm of her diehard fans. If anything, her turnout is better than average as many have flocked to see her at her best.
And by now, the event is already well underway. Maple Storm lacks the fandom that is RAINBOW MANIA, but she's not without her own fans. Unfortunately, she and Mika have not clashed yet in the squared-circle, but the SHOWTIME is fast approaching. In fact, here's Rainbow Mika now!
Mika charges down the entryway, doling out high-fives to waiting fans as she jogs toward the ring. With a flourish she leaps up, catches the ropes, then swings in between them. Rainbow Mania hits a peak as Mika throws her arms in the air, throwing victory signs and whipping the crowd into a frenzy. After briefly circling the ring, she takes the microphone and moves to center stage.
"WHO OUT THERE IS READY FOR A THROWDOWN??" Mika asks in a shout, her volume a little too loud for someone using a microphone. The crowd roars anyway. "I CAN'T HEAR OUT YOU THERE, I SAID WHO'S READY FOR A THROWDOWN?" The roar somehow increases in volume. "I HOPE MAPLE STORM IS READY, BECAUSE OTHERWISE I'M GONNA TURN HER INTO A PANCAKE!" The roar, somehow, increases in volume further.
Marduk had nothing to do with the cWA.
Marduk, in fact, was cruising down the road in his convertable black hummer, with the top down of course. He was down the highway, forcing his way through light traffic. He wasn't interested in wrestling, or the CWA, or anything right now. His momma was in a safe place. His momma wasn't in danger. And now, he was just happy to ride on down, with no trouble, not a care.
AOnly the playful laughter of a giant, towering brawler.
"Hahahaha! Oh wow, Carrot Top is even funnier in the car!"
"Getting the Carrot Top Greatest Hits on Audiobook was in fact one of the smartest things I've ever done!" Marduk says, as he ejects the CD out. "Now, that I have finished listening to my audiobook of Carrot Top, I can now listen to the radio. I wonder what is on the radio?" He plays with the dial, and he turns on the first station he can. And from the radio, a local wrestling match broadcasts. "*WHO OUT THERE IS READY FOR A THROWDOWN??*" Was the anouncement from the radio. Marduk narrows his eyes. "Who is challenging me-" He starts, getting a little offended that someone on the radio was challenging him. He, of course, knew that the radio wasn't challenging him. Machines don't challenge people. Only people do. Of course, he couldn't finish his word before he is -suddenly interrupted-
"*I CAN'T HEAR OUT YOU THERE, I SAID WHO'S READY FOR A THROWDOWN?*"
"Well EXCUSE ME!" Marduk bellows out, his grip tightening on the wheel. He begins to weave in and out of traffic, accelerating as he builds into a rage. "Who the hell do you think you are? You want to fight me? YOU WANT TO FIGHT ME? I'M GONNA FIGHT YOU-"
"*I HOPE MAPLE STORM IS READY, BECAUSE OTHERWISE I'M GONNA TURN HER INTO A PANCAKE!*"
"Pancakes?" Marduk immediately goes off an exit, beelining it straight to the CWA Arena.
"Holy shit I love pancakes."
The cheering continues as Mika waves her hand in a "turn-it-up" gesture. Mika seems to feed off the crowd, psyching herself up almost as much as she does her fans. For now, she remains blissfully unaware of Marduk's crash course.
"I'm sure Maple Storm's pretty tough," Mika says, provoking some boos. "But what do you think?! Is she ready for Rainbow Mania?!" The crowd erupts into a volley of no's. "That's right! Maple Storm, get on out here!!"
And the lights dim down.
The sounds of Killasaurus Orphanage, well, not quite Killasaurus Orphanage, it's just different enough to avoid any legal issues, comes roaring out. And down the walkway, leading up to the center ring, the spotlights focus on the blonde-haired opponent in yellow, the Maple Storm, as she strides down. Waving to the crowd, she begins to build the HYPE as she comes to meet her match, Come to meet Rainbow Mania head on-
And suddenly a black hummer erupts behind her.
The massive car roars down the walk. Maple Storm can just barely avoid going under the vehicle, instead taking a rather nasty clip that sends her up and over into the audience. Panic unfolds over the entire crowd, as the SUV screams into braking, turning hard just short of colliding with the ring itself. Fishtailing itself into the side of the ring, the vehicle comes into a hard stop. The audience didn't have time to react before the -cause- of this sudden intrusion rises up.
The towering Vale Tudo wrestler stands right up, not even bother to be buckled in. And there, with great strides, he just walks from his car to under the ropes, right in the middle ring of the CWA. He waves to the crowd. "Sup hoes!" He calls out to the people. And the audience... begins to break into boos. Grinning, Marduk fixes his attention on Rainbow Mika... and steps back. "Well damn girl! You got to be a hell of a terrible cook, cause you damn hot!" Marduk says with his usual charm. He begins to take a step forward as... the crowd escalates their booing. Marduk, growling, -roars- over the crowd, silencing it a moment with a bellow: "God DAMN would you shut the HELL UP people!?" With the silence, he turns right back to Rainbow Mika.
"So where are those pancakes?"
As the lights dim Mika flips her mic off and clenches her fists. With the spotlight off of her for a moment, she can get excited. This is going to be a great match, she tells herself. She can't wait to see how Maple Storm's training is going. Really, she's even more excited about her own progress. It's going to be ama--
BAM. The Hummer crashes into Maple Storm and launches into the crowd. People move to help her out--including a couple of paramedics--while Mika's eyes widen. Who is that? This wasn't in the script for the setup. The match wasn't scripted of course, but there's a method to the whole thing and this...
Craig Marduk mounts the stage with his usual arrogant swagger. Mika goes from wide-eyed to narrow-eyed as she zeroes in on the Vale Tudo fighter. She continues to watch for a moment as he calls out the crowd and asks about breakfast. Rainbow Mika clenches her fist tightly around the microphone before flipping it back on.
"HEY!" Rainbow Mika says, "Of course I'm hot!" she bellows, pointing a finger at Marduk. "A true wrestler hones her body into an icon of physical perfection through training, discipline, and spirit!" Mika sweeps her arm through the crowd. "But that's enough about me. What about /you/? You're interrupting our match, and these people came looking for a throwndown!" Mika rolls it with. This guy is a fighter, right? Maple Storm can take worse than that, but the crowd will get rowdy if she doesn't do something.
"If you're not ready to oblige, then you'd better get the hell out of the ring!"

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/-------|
Steadily, Marduk shifts from his pancake-based myopia.
As he does not get the pancakes, he twists up his nose. Looking around, the crowd begins to turn back towards Mika's side, calling back to her. Another round of boos were going around, not at Mika, but for the big lug who just ruined the whole match. Marduk was beginning to register what was exactly happening. In a low voice, he growls to himself.
"Shit, is this some kind of wrestling crap?"
Marduk shakes his head, clenching his massive mitts into fists. "Bitch, this isn't about you!" He bellows, taking a heavy step at Rainbow Mika. "And unless you STEP OFF and give me some of my DAMN PANCAKES, you are about to get the -SHIT- slapped out of you dumb COW! You know what happens when you ride the Marduk Express? You wanna Ride the Marduk Express? You know who rode the Marduk Express?" And then, Marduk delivers the gut punch of gut punches to the whole of the ring. The audience cringes as the three words comes out from Marduk's leering, sneering face, which was getting -way- too close to Rainbow Mika.
"Armor King did."
The boos. The groans. The hisses. The food. It was an open-faced slap at the whole of the entire wrestling fans. And Marduk was eating it up as he just keeps looming over Rainbow Mika. "So come on. You really wanna ride the Marduk express princess? Or do you wanna do what you're good at..." And Marduk just cocks his head.
"And make me some pancakes?"

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0 Marduk
Rainbow Mika clenches her teeth, but she doesn't back down as Marduk escalates. The crowd boos Marduk, which only reinforces Mika's resolve. Now they /want/ a fight. At first it was filler, but when Marduk makes mention to Armor King, that's the last straw.
Mika mouth goes agape for a minute. That's a low blow! She was going to keep working the crowd for a moment, but an insult like that calls for violence. Mika paces around still holding the mic.
"That tears it!" Mika shouts, "I don't know about cooking pancakes," Mika tosses the mic underhanded to a referee before dropping into her low wrestling stance. She goes in low, aiming to grab the much larger fighter by the legs and then hoist his feet out from under him to flip him right onto his back in a show of strength.
"But we do serve serve flapjacks here!!!"
COMBATSYS: Marduk dodges Rainbow Mika's Medium Throw.
[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////////////////]
Rainbow Mika 0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0 Marduk
Marduk... wasn't feeding on the show.
He kind of gets a slack jaw cock-headed stare. He felt the heat. BUt as Mika seems to turn to the crowd before he does... he just doesn't register the theatrics. He may be a wrestler, but he wasn't a pro-wrestler. He might even come across as flat-footed when Mika come roaring in low, to flip him on his back.
So it may be a surprise when Marduk reverses it.
The motion is more power than speed; as Mika goes for the legs, Marduk pushes his own hands down. Marduk overpowers on the shove back, and dilligently steps backwards. It wasn't flashy; Marduk was not the least bit flashy. What he had instead was a precise, mechanical technique, augmented by pure size, and pure fury. He wasn't angry just yet.
"Then make me some flapjacks, BITCH!"
Marduk did not understand the pun. However, he was thundering back in, his massive mitts lashing out to seize Mika from her shoulders. Should he grab Mika by the shoulders, he would respond with... power and size. He would literally fling Mika at the corner turnstile and... that's it. He would literally just throw Mika in the air. No finesse, no talent. Just pure force, and size.
Something he had far too much in excess.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/---====|-------\-------\0 Marduk
When Marduk buckles down, Mika struggles to move him. Strong as she is, Marduk has a considerable size and weight advantage over her that makes it hard for her to fight him strength against strength. It won't stop her from trying, of course, even if it's not her wisest course of action.
But what Mika lacks in power here, she makes up for in spirit and technique. When Marduk throws her, Mika goes soaring through the air before crashing into the turnbuckle. She hits it with a heavy, meaty thump, but even as she does she's back on the offensive. Rather than linger there she rolls to the side, hitting the ropes. Mika works her way back from there, sliding her boots against the ring to get enough footing to strength the ropes back like elastic and slowly stretching them out. Once she's got enough momentum stored up, she springs back toward Marduk like a rock from a slingshot.
"Don't worry, things are about to heat up in this kitchen!" Mika bellows, drawing her arm back and aiming toward Marduk's stomach with a powerful running haymaker.

[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////////////// ]
Rainbow Mika 0/-------/--=====|==-----\-------\0 Marduk
That was the response as Mika is hurled right into the turnbuckle. Marduk only has time to dust off his hands before Rainbow Mania was surging back to him. He blinks, and narrows his eyes, everything just happening so fast. "What the-" Is all he could muster before he falls into his stance. Mika unleashes the full power of a high speed haymaker, right into Marduk's gut. Mika collides... and... it is like hitting a brick wall. Oh, that's not discounting the force; there is already a full bruise right on impact. But nothing -gave- on impact, not even a wet slap of impact, not even a grunt. Marduk tries to figure out what was happening. "Kitchen... heat up..." He mutters, looking around.
And then he freezes.
"There isn't even a STOVE in here."
There was a building rage overcoming Marduk as he realized what this was. A volcano, a raging volcano, building to the brim with hot blooded fury. Marduk's entire body -shudders- as his pupils turn to pinpricks, locked squarely upon the bright and bubbly wrestler below him. His teeth clatter as he grimaces in full fury, before unleashing a howl that fills the entire arena.
"THERE ARE NO PANCAKES HERE!!!"
"HOLY SHIT WHAT KIND OF CON ARTIST CRAZY ASS HO TRICKS AN INNOCENT MAN WITH THE PROMISE OF PANCAKES?!" He screams as his arms snap together like a bear trap. He will continue his ranting as he would attempt to smash Mika over and over again into his knee, again and again and again and again... if he could even get a grip. "PANCAKES! I CAME HERE FOR PANCAKES! I HAVE BEEN DECIEVED! I HAVE BEEN TRICKED!"
"WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!"

Rainbow Mika 1/--=====/=======|====---\-------\0 Marduk
Rainbow Mika grimaces as her fist collides with durable muscle. She pushes harder, trying to make it cave, but really does little more than /maybe/ push Marduk back a few inches. There's a bruise, certainly, but it lacks the visceral feel of a good, slobberknocking hit. Mika's fought some tough opponents, but most of them don't take a hit quite like Marduk can. Rainbow Mika eventually draws back and there's a bit of a gasp from the crowd.
But then Marduk's on the move, yelling about pancakes while going for a staggering knee strike. Mika's first reaction is to vault over the knee and use it light a springboard to go into one of her more acrobatic manuevers. Unfortunately for her, the knee is much faster and more brutal than she anticipates. Her lands slip and the next thing she knows she's taken the blow to the stomach, then another. She eventually loses count before she staggers back and drapes herself backwards against the ropes.
D-damn it," Mika stutters, once hand rubbing her side. She's not entirely sure she didn't crack several ribs there. "WHY WOULD YOU COME HERE LOOKING FOR PANCAKES? THERE'S AN IHOP DOWN THE ROAD?" A pause. That really hurt to yell. "WERE YOU LOOKING FOR THE IHOP?"
Marduk was bad news for whoever ended up on his war path.
In this case, it was over the concept of pancakes. Flapjacks. Rainbow Mika might have dealt with tougher, and definately smarter opponents than Marduk. But Marduk was a one trick pony. And that trick was -hitting things really hard-. As he just -smashes- the hell out of Mika, he finally just tosses her away. And as she stutters, and starts -yelling- at Marduk he just bellows back at her.
"BITCH STOP YELLING!"
Marduk's helpful addition DOES come with a benefit for Mika's sake: Marduk stop advancing on her. Enraged over the thought of no pancakes, and even her counteroffer, he blinks hard. IHOP? The bitch wanted him to go to IHOP? He wasn't confused, he didn't come here for some hanky ass IHOP pancakes. He came for the pancakes that were mentioned on the radio. Pancakes that were NOT HERE. Marduk staggers to the ropes, looking down at his hummer.
And then Marduk looks at the fans.
"It's FAKE! It's all FAKE! It's completely FAKE and A TOTAL LIE!" Marduk explains, pointing at Mika as he comes on the ropes. "There are NO PANCAKES HERE! And when I come in here to look for pancakes? When I come in here looking for CAKES in the PAN? They tell me to HIT THE ROAD, and GO TO AN IHOP! Knowing that I am -BANNED- from IHOP because I wanted Australian Pancakes, and they DID NOT HAVE AUSTRALIAN PANCAKES! I am just a MAN with a PLAN for PAN. CAKES. AND NOBODY HAS FUCKING. GIVEN ME. PAAAAANCAAAAAAKES!"
And Marduk -rips- the ropes from the turntiles, snapping them free, to the screams and boos of the crowd.
COMBATSYS: Marduk gathers his will.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////////////// ]
Rainbow Mika 1/--=====/=======|=======\-------\1 Marduk
It's taking Mika a few moments to catch her breath after that last move. Her spectacular botch left her open to a hurting from Marduk, which is certainly something that didn't need much an opening with his power and brutality. She's still rubbing her ribs as Marduk continues to rant, even going far enough to tear up the ring. When he does, Mika almost falls backward from the ropes behind her shifting from the disruption of tension on the other side.
Even so, Mika's still catching her breath and rubbing her sides. She drops onto her knees for a moment, listening to the crowd. There's a mixture of horror, anger, but also hope. Her diehard fans are chanting her name lowly--or at least, that's what Mika hears. She knows that she can't just roll over and give in. This guy came crashing into the stadium, injured Maple Storm, insulted Armor King, and tore up the ring. She can't stand for that!
The problem is she can't stand in /general/ for the moment, but she's working on that part.
COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika gains composure.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////////////// ]
Rainbow Mika 1/---====/=======|=======\-------\1 Marduk
Marduk hears it too.
Rainbow Mika. Rainbow Mika. The chant was building. Marduk just lets those ropes drop to the ground, as he gives them a kick. They kept saying that name. He was trying to understand why they were saying the name. They should be saying Marduk, as Marduk was here. Why were they saying Rainbow Mika. And then, it clicks. "Hang on." Marduk growls. He turns around towards the staggering Mika. "You're Rainbow Mika?"
"They are cheering for YOU not ME!" The gears were shifting, as Marduk's mind accelerates. "This isn't about PANCAKES at all. This about SHOWING YOU OFF as some BIG ATTENTION GRABBING THING!" Marduk pounds his chest with both of his fists. "I was LIED ABOUT PANCAKES just to make you LOOK BETTER!? Well bitch, I'm about to show you just how BAD of an IDEA IT IS to MAKE FUN OF MARDUK!" And the towering bruiser descends, rushing at Mika again. He would scoop her up again, but this time, he would could for something... something smaller. He would wrench his arm around her, and put her in a triangle choke hold, the -least- impressive hold of all of wrestling. All in front of her fans.
As they continue to chant for Rainbow Mika.
COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika blocks Marduk's Choke Hold.
[ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ < > //////////////////////////// ]
Rainbow Mika 1/=======/=======|=======\-------\1 Marduk
The chanting continues, even as it throws Marduk into a fury. For a moment, Mika considers what he's saying. How did he get the idea he was being challenged? That doesn't make any sense. There was a bout already on the docket. What did he even hear? Was someone else meddling? A small part of Mika's mind considers trying to figure this out. Is she being manipulated somehow? Is this some kind of trick?
But there's no time for that. Marduk, the man who killed Armor King, has called her out. He's made sport of this event and he's treating the fans like they're trash. Even if it's a misunderstanding, Mika can't tolerate it. This is the sort of problem one solves with a good beating. --the details can be sorted out later! Of course, she's taken a pretty good beating already, but that has never stopped her from giving one-hundred and ten percent.
Marduk goes for the chokehold. Is that some kind of insult?! Mika throws up her arms to guard, her muscles straining to pry Marduk's meaty arm out from around her as she's practically picked up in the triangle choke. Her legs kick for a moment as she struggles to regain her footing due to the height-difference.
And then Mika slams her head back into Marduk. She brings her hardened skull into him again and again, striking him with enough force to try and get him to turn her loose. If he does, Mika doubles around, leaps up, then tries to grab the taller grappler in her own headlock. Mika's, by contrast, doesn't try to dangle or hold Marduk there. No, she just aims to grab him and hold him just long enough to push forward, tip her legs out from under her, then slam Marduk down into the mat.
"IF I'D WANTED TO FIGHT YOU I WOULD CALLED YOU ABOUT BY NAME! THAT'S HOW YOU DO A PROPER CALLOUT! I THOUGHT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR IHOP?!"

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/=======|=======\===----\1 Marduk
Marduk was only growing more enraged by the shouting.
Breathing hard, the towering titan was only building in a fury. As Mika breaks from the attempt at a chokehold with a massive headbutt, Marduk is finally off balanced. Stunned for a moment, he releases, staggering back in a stand. And the towering brawler's lack of agility sudden comes to a head. Off-balanced, he has to move his whole girth get in line... as Mika comes up and around on a counter grab. Marduk is in a headlock, and he chokes and groans, struggling in the grips. Flailing around the ring, his arms lash up at around him, as he gags and flails. His body was sweating, muscles twitching as he just becomes -frustrated- Finally, he chokes out a roar.
And Marduk would try and rip Mika off by the throat, to lift her up in the air before his eyes.
And there, if he got the grip, he would just start worrying Rainbow Mika back and forth, shaking her like a British Nanny, before finishing with a slam to the ground, and a kick. And whether or not he could even make it that far, he was bellow out the last word.

Rainbow Mika 1/---====/=======|=======\====---\1 Marduk
Mika rises up and gets ready to work the crowd--when Marduk picks her up by the throat and lifts her into the air. Mika kicks her legs, trying to find purchase against Marduk enough to kick away. She's shaken back and forth violently, all the while failing to break out of the hold until Marduk slams her down against the mat and kicks her across it. She goes into a roll before digging her fingers into the side of the ring to stop herself.
Rising back up, Mika gives Marduk a one-eyed glare while she wipes a bit of blood and spittle from her mouth. The crowd continues to chant, prompting her to climb back onto her feet once more, even if she's staggering and nursing a wounded side as she does. She stands there wordlessly as she assesses Marduk, the crowd's steady chants echoing onward.
RAINBOW! MIKA! RAINBOW! MIKA!
Mika Nanakawa climbs fully back to her feet, thumps her fist against her side, then slams her hand into her palm. "OKAY!" she shouts (likely aggravating Marduk further -- but Mika is certainly not wise). Mika spreads her feet, bending her knees to drop into a proper wrestling stance again. "That's enough about that! Let's show them a real fight instead!"
And with that, Mika breaks into a run, charging headlong at Marduk. Once she gets going she lays it on, sprinting up to a quicker pace once she's given Marduk just enough time to /think/ he knows how fast she's going in. She starts low, looking like she's going for a gut shot--until she suddenly goes forward into a front-flip, launching herself upward into a airborne clothesline that she intends to use to bring Marduk down on his back!
If she makes it that far, Mika rolls on forward, springing back onto her feet before falling back onto him with a downward elbow drop. After that, she's back on her feet again, this time charging for what's left of the ropes. Climbing to the second rope, Mika backflips off this time into a full body splash, trying to move at a speed and intensity to nail Marduk again before he can fully get on his feet.
Provided she's not been stopped, Mika moves for the finish. She heads back to the turnbuckle, climbing to the top of the corner. From there, she pumps the crowd up with a mighty fist-pump. She further works the crowd by looking back over her shoulder at Marduk and giving her rump a strong, wobbling slap. With the crowd suitably worked up, Mika goes for the finisher: she launches herself backward from the top rope and drops like a meteor crashing down onto Marduk butt-first.

Rainbow Mika 0/-------/----===|=======\=======\1 Marduk
Marduk was running out of patience.
He just wanted to come here to have pancakes. Instead, this crazy ass bitch was fighting him, everyone was bullying him in the audience, and he was not having pancakes. Those three things were just so annoying, that he wanted to punch. He was holding back, in his mind. Choking and slamming Rainbow Mika? That was mercy. He wasn't getting worked up. If he just got pancakes, he would have just left. But no. No, everyone had to just be unreasonable.
And then she brings in a real fight.
As the audience heats up, Mika takes to the air. Marduk tries to defend against it, to catch it like the opening takedown attempt. But speed was mingling with power as Marduk is actually knocked off his feet. Staggering, he falls backwards with a thunderous thump, the ring groaning under the force. He begins to rise... only for the elbow to connect. The ponderous brute, having only been bruised from before, was now getting bloodied. The blows were hammering down; when the splash comes, he actually lets out a pained groan aloud, doubling over. Slamming his fist down, he makes another attempt to get up as the assault continues. As the butt comes, Marduk doesn't even know how to handle it. The bottom barrels into him, sending him back down in a butt pin. A ref... a ref starts counting, as if this was a match.
And Marduk rises.
Contorting like a snake, he spasms, shaking as he rolls over, free from the butt. He normally liked it when blondes sat on his face. But this was just... demeaning. Objectifying. He had dignity. Marduk was sweating hard as he turns back at Rainbow Mika. And while rage was pouring from every corner.
His voice started out far too soft.
"Oh." Marduk says with a devastatingly low growl. "Oh oh oh. You want a -real- fight? You don't want me to have pancakes? You just wanted me to come to give you a real fight? YOU WANT A REAL FUCKING FIGHT?!" Marduk somehow turns red. Spit flies from the man's mouth as his eyes focus in pinpricks down at the blonde bombshell. "Then you'll get it. THEN YOU'LL GET IT. TOOT TOOT!" He pumps an arm in the air.
"ALL ABOARD THE MARDUK EXPRESS!"
And Marduk charges Rainbow Mika.
The speed was what was frightening. AT least this part. Marduk was light a raging buffalo, boiling upon Rainbow Mika, dipping low. He would grab her by the knees, and lift her up. He wouldn't just tackle her, he would carry them both -out- of the ring, over the limp ropes, and right on the ringside concrete. And there... and there...
Well, did Marduk even grab Mika on the charge?

Rainbow Mika 2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|===----\-------\0 Marduk
And he slams her back first on the concrete.
The concrete cracks and craters on impact, as Marduk doesn't waste time. He takes his position, sitting on Rainbow Mika's stomach. And he doesn't hesitate as he throws the first punch, down -hard- in Rainbow Mika's face. "YEAH! YEAH! YOU WANTED THIS!" He roars out as the crowd -screams-. Panic unfolds in the crowd as the audience rushes the barriers, rushes from their seats. Officials are stunned as Marduk just keeps throwing punch after punch after punch into the pinned down Mika, right into her face. "A REAL FIGHT! YOU LIKE A REAL FIGHT BITCH!? RAINBOW MIKA! RAINBOW MIKA! CAN YOU HEAR THAT?!"
"I SAID CAN YOU FUCKING HEAR THAT?!?!?!"
Marduk stops his punches to grab Mika by her crown, twisting her neck roughly with a crack, before he just starts -pounding- the back of her head into the concrete. "I SAID CAN YOU HEAR ME?! ANSWER ME YOU FUCKING BITCH! ANSWER ME! ANSWER-"
Marduk is cut short as -someone- comes barreling from the side with a clothesline.
The yellow blur is just enough to send Marduk flying off, hitting the concrete head first. A fresh abrasion on his temple shows the impact. The Maple Storm, falling to one knee, gasps for air as she trembles. The clothesline might have literally saved Mika's life. But Maple Storm couldn't... couldn't stand up after that. She was fighting to rise up, her legs were trembling. The audience was trying to rush to Mika, rush to Marduk, rush to do -something-.
And Marduk was rising up.
"Bitch..." He growls, looming over Maple Storm.
"You done have made a mistake."
When Mika finishes the combo and lands the pin she's lost in the moment. This isn't an uncommon end to some of her matches. In fact, it's something of a crowd favorite among her fans. The pin count starts and Mika gets pumped. This is it! She's going to turn a diaster into a big win!
Then Marduk rolls out from under her like a snake. He gets to his feet and takes a moment to get fully wound up, but when he does, even Mika's bravado fizzles out. Marduk is angry beyond reason. This isn't a match anymore. This is a real, no-holds barred fight--one for which Mika, at this point, is woefully underprepared. Marduk hits her like a charging bull, sweeping her legs out from under her and carrying them both out of the ring.
Mika slams /hard/ against the concrete. She can feel something already injured pop. After that, Marduk slams down on top of her, bringing to bear all that weighty muscle atop her already injured abdominals. Mika wheezes, the wind knocked out of her lungs. Then there's the punches. Oh, the punches.
Mika slips in and out of consciousness as she's nailed again and again by Marduk. The amount of damage she takes isn't even clear to her from the sheer brutality of it all. If she were more awake it would be even worse, but as it stands she's beaten so badly, so...viscerally...that she can't even stay conscious during most of it.
And then, she gets a life-saving reprieve as Maple Storm tackles Marduk away from. Mika blinks several times, her vision still blurred and fuzzy. She can barely see what's going on, save for Marduk's bulky form and Maple Storm's blurred yellow. The two look ready to at it as well, but Mika seems to remember--wasn't Maple Storm injured? What's she doing? Mika trembles at the thought. She climbs to her feet gradually, trying to tap her reserves enough to going again. She /has/ to help out Maple Storm. There's no way she can abandon her after she risked her life to dive in. For a moment, Mika trembles. Sweat and blood run down the side of her face. She has to do something. Anything!
Mika slaps her face several times to psych herself up. The fans are running away. This is a real fight now, and it may mean life or death. Whatever she does, she has to make it count. She tells herself how she's trained for this, honed her body to handle any situation--but it doesn't too much to renew her confidence against that monster. Seeing Maple Storm in danger, however? That does it.
Mika breaks into a sprint that starts with a hobble. She works past the pain to get enough speed going so that, by the time she comes up behind Marduk, she launches herself into a flying dropkick. Provided it's enough to floor him, Mika doesn't wait to see if he's down--she instead goes for a giant swing, trying to get Marduk by the feet and swing him around and around--using his own weight to help her momentum--and throw him as far away from herself and Maple Storm as she can. If the impact isn't enough to put him out, at the very least, maybe it'll give time for help to arrive while he works his way back over.
But either way, by the time she's done, Mika collapses from exhaustion.

Maple Storm had a two fractured ribs, severe bruising in her buttocks, a sprained wrist, and a cracked tibia. Her arm wasn't hurt; but her shin was... well, she couldn't stand right now. She just made it worse. As a matter of fact, Maple Storm probably had extended her recovery time by another few weeks. She should have stayed down if she cared about her well-being. But if you asked Maple Storm is she made a mistake?
She would say no.
Well, she would have, until Marduk loomed over her.
Marduk actually gives Maple Storm a full-faced backhand slap, bowling her over on the concrete. "Looks like the Marduk Express has room for one more passenger." He rumbles as Maple Storm collapses. Marduk moves over her... and flips her on her back. Another ground and pound. "TOOT TOO-"
And the dropkick comes.
The blow floors Marduk, stunning him, stopping him. Marduk doesn't even have a chance to react before Mika begins to lift him up. Like a giant monster turtle fighting an italian plumber, Marduk is spun around, and around, and around. When he is finally released, he is sent hurtling... straight for his car. With a smash, he hits the rear car door head first, denting it horribly. Collapsing on the ground once again, he slowly, steadily rises back up... and looks at where he hit.
"OH MY GAAAAWD!" Marduk clutches his head, boiling over with rage. "YOU DENTED MY CAR- I- BUT- JUST FUCK IT!" Marduk roars, striding around his car to the front seat. "FUCK IT! JUST FUCK IT ALL! YOU ALL ARE CRAZY ASS BITCHES. I JUST WANTED PANCAKES!" He gets into the seat, slams the door, and turns over the engine. Looking behind him, with the crowd, he honks the horn as he... just starts going in reverse, right out the way he came in. "AND YOU HAD TO GO AND MAKE A BIG DEAL ABOUT IT! SO JUST FUCK IT."
"I"M GOING TO IHOP!"
COMBATSYS: Marduk has ended the fight here.
Marduk crashes heavily his car, which leaves a dent. Mika, who has dropped hard onto her butt, breathes a short sigh of relief...until Marduk gets up swearing once more. Mika inhales sharply as she expects the worst. Surely he's not going to keep going. She can't even stand. She looks at Maple Storm with terror.
Then Marduk announces that he's leaving. Mika is too shaken to taunt, tease, or further provoke. For that matter, she doesn't even answer him. She just lets him go. Maybe one day, she'll be prepared to beat that man. Today? Today is most certainly not that day.
Instead, Mika flops over onto her back with a groan and waits for the paramedics. She stares into the cold, empty flourescents overhead.
