SNF 2018.03 - SNF: Oil's Well That Ends Well

[Toggle Names]

Description: For some reason the SNF producers seem to think that oil refineries have something to do with Easter. They also thought it was a good idea to let people brawl it out in a place designed to pump extremely flammable liquids. This is the story of that fight, and whether or not Sean can get a date.

Behold! The Sound of the Basketvilles! That's right, 'Slam Dunk' Sean Matsuda is bouncing his basketball as he makes his arrival in this oil refinery of hotness. There's oil and heat all over the place but the dreadlocked boy wonder looks as stylish and as ready for action as he always does.

At least, when his sister's not around to make him look like a dork.

The basketball gets dribbled through his legs and he crosses over invisible opponents on his way to looking like a boss with a somersaulting dunk into the invisible hoop that he's set up in front of him. "And the crowd goes wild!" Sean makes that annoying 'cheering crowd' sound with his mouth while spinning the red, white and blue basketball on his finger.

"And that's just the opening act. Wait 'til my opponents get here. It's gonna' get /real/ hot then!" Sean looks around and realizes that he's talking to a crowd that doesn't exist.

"... I seriously need to fight in more crowd friendly places. This is getting bad for my image."

While Sean may be responsible for his own sound effects, that's not at all true for one of his opponents. It seems like someone has bothered to arrange some setup before the match, because all of a sudden Rainbow Mika's theme hits the air, loud enough to be heard through the entire refinery, and a mix of blue and white spot lights begin to shine all over the place before twisting about to shine down on Rainbow Mika herself.

As the fan favorite walks her way in from the edge of the refinery, the lights continue to follow her, turning off the instant she gets out of their arc, lighting up the surface of the Worldwide Pro title belt worn around her waist.

"There's always a crowd out there," the wrestler shouts, her voice projecting masterfully over her music as she points a finger dead on at Sean. "Even if you can't see them, there's a giant crowd watching at home. And if you listen carefully, you can hear them shouting for RAINBOW MIKA!"

"... For who now?"

Sean is clearly attempting to pull one over on the RAINBOWMANIAC. He definitely knows who she is but if there's a crowd at home watching, he's definitely not going to be diving head first into whatever fanbase she's got. Not while he's about to do battle with her.

"So!" Sean tosses the spinning basketball from one finger to the other. "It's Rainbowmania versus uh..." Sean blanks for a moment as he doesn't have a clever phrase. "Sean...someness?" Sean stops the ball from spinning and waves a hand dismissively at his lack of cool movement name. "You sure you ready for this? I mean, I've seen you in the ring. You got some mad skills but..." Sean motions around the refinery. "This ain't no ring."

Sean tucks the basketball underneath his arm as he seems to be standing in an almost nonchalant fighting stance. If that's even such a thing.

The champ takes the belt off her shoulder, hanging it down over one of the nearby pipes (where in about a minute, someone will be ducking by the pick it up for her while the cameras are focused on the fight) and rolls out her shoulder with a wide grin on her face.

"If you've seen my matches, then you should know I don't need a ring to run the ropes! I was the first Neo League champ! I'm the reigning Worldwide Pro Champ! And the whole world has seen just how powerful RAINBOWMANIA can really be!" she shouts, managing to position a pose perfectly for one of the stationary cameras that had been set up.

Pulling out of the shoulder roll, she aims one finger dead on for Sean. "And if you want to try to hold a candle to Rainbowmania, you're going to have to prove you can survive what I'm putting out!"

And now it's time to see just what Sean can put up with as Rainbow Mika keeps walking forward, almost casually crossing the distance, her eyes shining with the thrill of battle/performance. She raises up her arms behind, flexing shoulders and biceps as they roll through the motion, and then, with no fight bell to call the match start, she suddenly lashes out by throwing her arm up in a back-handed uppercut, aiming to catch Sean in the jaw as she slaps her other hand down on the flexing muscle.

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

Sean wasn't nearly as ready for what was headed his way as he thought. He was standing there with his smug expression and balancing a basketball between his arm and his hop, as if he weren't taking this too seriously.

Mistake. Rainbow Mika-sized Mistake.

Sean's caught completely off-guard, perhaps he was waiting for some announcement or bell, when Rainbow Mika catches up right in the jaw with that seriously painful uppercut. He stumbles, loses control of the basketball, which rolls off to the side and has to actually get into a full on fight stance after that.

Sean works his jaw a bit before bringing those sparring gloved hands up and looking more like he's ready to fight now. "Okay, okay. You got that one off. But just in case you ain't know..."

Sean takes off from the ground and spins in the air, aiming one of his bare feet down towards Rainbow Mika's chest to kick this fight up a couple notches already! He's goin' in!

"There's always gold at the end of a rainbow!" Somehow, Sean manages to pop the non-collar on his GOLDEN yellow gi.

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

Rainbow Mika is rather quick on her feet for once, using the opportunity opened up by ringing Sean's bell to reposition and give herself more room to move and watch just what Sean is preparing for. It turns out it was the right move, as it results in her having enough time to size up Sean's kick before it gets to her, ducking and rolling off to the side (and unfortunately getting some oil on her costume, but that was bound to happen).

As she pops up, she looks back over her shoulder to shout, "Everyone already knows there's gold with this Rainbow, and I've got the belt to prove it, but if you want to try to prove there's more to what you've got than just a few cheesy lines," she pauses to give a firm slap to her ass, adding a good bit of bounce before she brings her hand up to blow a quick kiss with a wink, "then you're going to have to prove you can handle all of this!"

Perhaps she was trying to get into Sean's head, perhaps she was trying to work up the fans. Maybe Sean thinks she's trying to throw herself at him.

That last one is technically true, as she suddenly leaps backward, folding over at the midsection to reduce wind resistance as she goes flying ass first straight for the supposed golden boy.

COMBATSYS: Sean dodges Rainbow Mika's Flying Peach.

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

Sean's in the middle of trying to recover from his diving whiff when Rainbow Mika starts running off at the mouth again. Which is fine because Sean knows all about running off at the mouth. It's what gets him into trouble most of the time. Then she's dropping lines at him and even Sean has to raise an eyebrow when the turns to look into one of the stationary cameras.

"... is she hitting on me?" is mouthed silently to the fans.

Sean spins back around in time to see Rainbow Ass headed in his direction. He drops into a roll that allows him to roll right underneath that flying peach and back up to his feet. Somehow, though, Sean Matsuda has managed to NOT get oil on his fancy golden boy gi. Okay, so it's not fancy. He's hobbled together with torn sleeves and all but whatever.

On his feet again, Sean just grins. "Listen. I'm down to hook up but let's do it /after/ I kick your ass, huh?" Sean quips this in Mika's direction and follows up with a leap and spins backwards, extending a leg to kick at her in the process!

"I've never dated a wrestler before!" Or anyone. But he's not telling the entire SNF World that!

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika endures Sean's Rolling Sobat.

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

You don't get to be a professional wrestler working in the world of professional fighting without running the risk of people misunderstanding you. It's all about being larger than life and putting on a show, and for whatever reason, most normal fighters don't manage to understand just what you mean. Sometimes you just have to roll with it.

"If you think you've got what it takes to try to take me out, you're going to have to put me down for the three count first!," Mika shouts as she stands firm, taking the kick against her midsection without an ounce of fear and just gritting her teeth. She managed to position herself well enough that she takes the full force of the blow, but Sean also starts to go glancing off her abdominals.

From this position, she's quick to slip in besides Sean, aiming to catch an arm in around the back of his neck and use all of her muscle and weight to bend him in half as she locks in the hold with her other hand, rapidly squeezing down on his throat while grinding his face up against the side of her bust. "This is just a warning, though, you wouldn't be the first guy who's said I took their breath away!"

With that quip complete, she raises one hand up to point at the sky and then rushes forward and leaps into the air, legs first to drag him after her, all aiming to slam his jaw into the ground.

Rainbow Mika     1/------=/=======|>>>>>>>\>------\1             Sean

Sean's still new to all these trash talking features of the fighting genre. He's used to quipping on the basketball court but sometimes it's a bit harder to keep up when he's also getting choked out by busty beauties that want to both date him and make him tap out. It's a combination of sensations that he's not ready for and soon enough he finds himself along for the Rainbow's Ride as he's taken on a journey through the land of Daydreams and goes smacking into the ground, jaw first.

This time, the gi has no choice but to get a little oiled up.

Sean reaches up for his jaw as he rolls a little bit away. Not too far but just enough to get some room to get up to one knee. "Damn." He checks to make sure that he hasn't lost the feeling in his face and tugs those sparring gloves back on tighter. "I heard you were a knockout..." And this is when Sean pushes up from his crouched position, rushes for Mika and aims a quick uppercut for her chin!

"... but this is ridiculous!"

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika endures Sean's Fierce Punch.

Rainbow Mika     1/-======/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>----\1             Sean

One of the key parts of any match is never giving your opponent a chance to recover if you can press the advantage (unless it would work the crowd up even more, in which case it's perfectly valid to simply build some heat). Sure Sean is doing his best to get back into her face, and at the moment, keeping close seems like a strong option to keep the match going her way.

Sean gets a nice clean hit to the jaw, with Mika's head rocked back by the blow, but her feet don't move an inch, and she's quick to bring her eyes back onto her opponent, grinning as a small amount of blood drips from the corner of her mouth. "If you really want to see what it takes for a knockout, then maybe you should get ready for this!"

Using one boot heel as a pivot point, she suddenly whips around, aiming to catch Sean in the side of the head with a spinning backfist to knock him senseless. Another quick spin follows up, still hoping to keep him off balance as she goes into yet another heel turn. Only this time she stops halfway, legs locked like springs before she suddenly rockets backwards with a killer hip check aimed to knock the wind out of him, landing on her feet and doing it again, but this time launching everything hard enough that she hopefully slams him full force into one of the nearby oil pipes.

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

Sean is a combination of impressed and shocked when Rainbow Mika just tanks the uppercut of Fierce Fury! He wasn't expecting there to actually be anything left for her to say after he rocked her with that punch. Of course, maybe the sparring gloves softened the blow. Or maybe she was just tough as a box of diamond flavored nails. Whatever the case may be, the look on Sean's face says it all.

When some words come in his direction, as a lead-in to the next attack, Sean plants his feet and bends at the knees a little bit, "I'm always ready."

That first backfist smacks him right upside the head and he drops, leaning to the side on a single knee. He's in pain but he's also smiling, though, as he spots Mika going for another spin.

Sean moves quickly, rising up and twisting as he raises with more speed than he's been moving with, aiming to take Rainbow Mika sky high with one of his Street Shoto moves: THE SHORYU CANNON! It's not as cool as the Shoryuken but its definitely got a bit more flavor to it.

He has no idea how far he's going to knock her with that but he comes back down and lands softly on his feet, reaching to wipe away some of the dirt and oil from fighting in such a messed up location!

It's a good, solid hit and it sends Rainbow Mika flying up, and then crashing down against the oily ground. The whites and blues of her costume (as well as her hair and all that exposed skin), are really starting to get messed up by the slippery coating now covering her body.

And yet still she stands back up, her eyes gleaming with intensity as she stares Sean down with a brilliant white smile that has only been partially affected by the blood that's started to stain her teeth.

"That one was pretty good. If you've got more of that, then maybe you'll be able to get the pin, but it's not that easy to put a stop to RAINBOWMANIA!" she bellows up to the sky, arms raised high, then slowly lowering one to point dead on at Sean. "This is your chance to give it everything you've got! This is your chance to prove you've got what it takes to stand in the ring with Rainbow Mika. ARE YOU READY?!"

There's a lingering pause, and in an arena it would undoubtably be filled with the sounds of cheering fans. Even here, it's almost as if the expectations of millions of viewers is pressing down.

%And then she simply goes for it, charging in to close the distance between her and Sean as she launches into the air with a missle drop kick aimed straight for his chest.

COMBATSYS: Rainbow Mika issues a challenge!!

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/-------|=======\===----\1             Sean

As the boots hit clean, Rainbow Mika bounces back into a quick roll that sees her popping back up to her feet mere moments later, before there's any hope of recovering from the blow. Facing Sean, she whips her arm over the back of his neck and plants one hand on his chest, using both to lever him up onto her shoulder vertically.

If that wasn't enough, the wrestler suddenly leaps up onto a set of nearby pipes with complete ease, despite hauling the extra weight of her opponent. She holds there as if up on the top ropes and then launches herself backwards into the air, keeping Sean straight up even as she goes horizontal. The position slams Sean's head into the ground before Mika's back hits, putting all the weight of both of them into the blow.

Sean Matsuda was not ready. That was the answer to the question from Rainbowmania because the look on his face when she does that lingering pause, he can almost hear the fans shouting at their screens. The whole refinery seems to shake a bit in the midst of this, this /PRESENCE/ that over powers even the cocky young upstart that's been talking trash this entire time.

"Come correct."

Sean can't help but to keep the trash talking going even in this weird state of oily battling. He's got himself in a stance befitting of someone in control of this battle but he knows he's been playing defense from the nonexistent bell.

Sean watches as she rushes for him and he takes a step to prepare to sidestep this business... but his bare foot slips on some of the oil that's all over the place and he stumbles a bit. It's enough of a stumble to create a half-second of hesitation, which throws off his timing and leaves his chest open for missile dropkick connections. And from there, it's like clockwork. Sean's taken on a wild ride and witnesses, head first, the true glory of Rainbowmania!

When the stars clear from in front of his face, he realizes he's still alive. He's covered in oil, his head is pounding and he's bleeding... internally and externally.

Sean flips over and crawls, as much as he can, as he's mostly just kind of sliding along the oily ground to get back up to his feet. He's wobbly but he's the kind of fighter that gets back up. It's just part of him. Ken Masters taught him to always get back up and that's what he's working on these days. Standing back up. Always getting up.

His sparring gloves seem to crackle with energy, chi to be exact, as he narrows his eyes at Rainbow Mika. He grins and shows off his own bloody teeth as he steps with a leading foot forward and thrusts those hands into her direction, sending an explosion of fireballish chi to catch all that oil she's drenched in on chi-fire!

Rainbow Mika     1/=======/=======|=====--\-------\0             Sean

When you open up a challenge, you have to be absolutely ready for your opponent to follow through and actually meet your expectations of them, even if that means that you're going to be in a world of hurt.

A giant ball of energy being launched at you is a pretty good response to a challenge.

Rainbow Mika has to plant her boots, trying to hold it back with her forearms, but it's no really hope, the hit blasts right past them, catching her hard and sending her reeling as small little flames spark up all over her body, and she's temporarily required to just keep rolling to help put them all out. Despite the fact that she's doing it in even more oil, it ends up working, even if there are a few lingering spots on the ground as she pushes back up to her feet.

"That was pretty good, but I'm still standing! It doesn't count if you don't manage to actually get the pin," she shouts her eyes still glowing with fierce competitiveness despite the fact that she's bleeding, oily, and covered in scorch marks. Is there anything that can actually put a stop to Mika's spirit?

"NOW LET'S SEE IF YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE THIS!" she shouts as she barrels right back into the fray, aiming to grab Sean by the shoulders and lock him in place as she just starts slamming her forehead into his nose. Hit after hit of brutal, cranial assault works to put every single resistant brain cell in Sean's head into temporary stasis and leave him completely open as she whips her arm up over his neck once more and gets a running start to leap forward with all she can manage. With no ropes to speak of, this time she aims her leap to carry her right over one of the raised pipes, with Sean hopefully positioned to take the full hit on his throat.

Rainbow Mika     0/-------/-======|=======\=====--\1             Sean

Headache. That doesn't even begin to cover it.

Somewhere in that tirade of headbutts, Sean Matsuda's nose cracks. There's blood running down his face and he's wobbling on his legs like a young man that's just seen his crush go to prom with someone else. His eyes are rolled back into his skull and there's pretty much no hope for him to actually remain on his feet. It's just a matter of time before RAINBOWMANIA crushes his throat with some serious application of this oil-based environment.

Sean's recovery is instinctual as he bounces and rolls, hands on his throat in pain. He coughs and sputters, unable to truly get a response out. He won't be able to put any witty banter on the adrenaline rushed assault that he's planning as he slips up to his feet. He doesn't stand up straight but he just kind of stumbles up into a stance that resembles a person that's just trying to prove himself. Just trying to earn a spot at the side of Ken Masters.

Sean thumbs at his nose, the pain evident on his face and rushes for Rainbow Mika with all of his might. Everything he has left is poured into the sudden shift in his weight as he aims to slam into her with his shoulder, hard enough to maybe stumble her for the pair of uppercuts that lead into a quick roundhouse and rising Tornado kick, hopefully used to carry Mika up into the air with him... only to have Sean switch in mid-air in an attempt to wheel kick Mika back down to the refinery's floor.

His own body dropping to smack into the ground as well... the shot of adrenaline gone.

With her opponent on the metaphorical ropes, all that Rainbow Mika needs to do is work past the one last attempt to take her down and she'll be good for the pin (well, knockout, since the fight doesn't actually have rules for pins). This one final surge of energy and all she has to do is get around him, gliding around to the side to avoid the shoulder tackle...

Only, she doesn't avoid the shoulder tackle. As she's attempting to reposition, her foot slips on the slick oil coating the floor and she falls straight into the hit instead. It knocks the wind out of her, which means there's no chance for her to recover to not just take two massive uppercuts to the face that send her flying into the big tornado kick.

And then it's the final strike, a wheeling kick that sends her crashing straight back to the ground. Only, there's not just ground here... there are tons of pipes, and there's enough force in her kicked down body that she breaks through a good number of them and black oil starts to spray everywhere.

She does everything she can to get back up from the ground, but her feet keep sliding out from under her, and all the injuries she's taken have definitely added up to a lot of pain. One last attempt, her legs just completely go out from under her, slumping up against an oil coated wall.

Sean's sparring gloved knuckles push into the slick ground and he struggles to get himself up to a crawling position. He slips and slides as he drags his body over to where the Rainbowest Mika has crash landed and he slumps down right next to her... one arm going across her body in an attempt to 'get the pin'. His throat still hurts and he can barely force a smile but he's definitely just trying to get the moral victory over her or something.

Besides, cameras are getting all of this.

"1..." Sean uses what little strength in his arm that's left to slap the oily ground as he counts. "2..." Sean struggles to keep himself conscious. "3!" Even though he's happy the exclamation comes out more as a raspy whisper.

The pin handled, Sean rolls off Mika and uses some of those bent pipes to pull himself up to his feet. Breathing in a second wind, Sean reaches down for his basketball, grabs a marker (likely from one of the clipboards for checking refinery things in this place) and scrawls his phone number across the ball. He drops it on Mika's lap and turns to slowly make his way out of this place. Dragging his feet and wincing in pain with every step.

COMBATSYS: Sean has ended the fight here.

As Sean is walking away, and the medics are arriving on scene, they push the ball aside to get Mika up onto a stretcher. In the process, the oil-slick ball starts to roll along the ground, until it lands on one of the small lingering flames left from the earlier chi explosion as goes up like a match.
