Description: Geese Howard and Victor Ortega have a talk after the latter's battle against the ninja Tundra. It goes about as well as you would expect.
[OOC] Geese can start us off
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "NP"
A battle was fought.
In the arena of Geese Howard, one of the most powerful men in the world: Howard Arena. The world champion of the CWA versus a ninja wanting to test the other's strength....and it ended in a -draw-. Geese can't say that he wasn't incredibly entertained throughout the bout, even as he chuckles in his spectator office, dressed in a fine black suit with a red tie and a long overcoat around his shoulders, the sleeves unoccupied by his arms, so they sway with each passing movement.
If Victor Ortega could hear from all the way down there, the silence palpable, he could hear a slow clapping sound. If his attention is brought up to Geese, he lifts a single hand for the world champion to come up to his office.
From that point, Geese moves to his desk, an assistant removing his coat for him as he pulls up a chair, removes his blazer, and takes a seat. A bottle of whiskey is placed on the table as Geese patiently waits for Victor's arrival.
[OOC] Geese says, "how's that?"
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "Perfect!"
[OOC] Geese upthumbs!
Indeed. A draw.
Where Tundra is concerned, the ninja was able to display his power and put his abilities to an incredible test and find his abilities were up to the task. Fate smiled on him and he wasn't utterly destroyed. Careful application of power and skill against an opponent whose reputation preceeds him as one of the true strongest in the world.
For Victor it was a light embaressment. He should have destroyed Tundra. That is how he perceives matters. But he's no neophyte nor so arrogant as to not accept that sometimes things simply don't go as planned. He will have to carefully review the what and the why for any future occurances if any of his mystique is to be maintained.
Unsurprisingly though, he was being watched and when the clap occurs he is unsurprised though less enthused about the fact that Geese observed the fight ending the way it did.
Ultimately, Geese doesn't have to wait very long. Victor soon arrives, dressed in a new suit that strains against the bulk of his overblown physique as is befitting him. He's fully cleaned up and shows no signs of having been in a fight that would have demolished lesser men. As he's shown in by the assistant he gives Geese a respectful nod and draws closer to the desk. "Mr. Howard.. Greetings. my apologies for using the arena so spontanously. I trust you were entertained?"
When Ortega enters Geese's office, of course he has a few staff members present to bear witness to the meeting of powers that is about to take place here. Geese is at his desk, a thick and well-built chair set in front of it as he stands up in politeness to the CWA representative.
"Mr. Ortega. You honor me by arriving at this stadium in timely fashion, despite the show you have managed to put on for me. The ring?" Geese waves it off.
"The ring was used the way it was meant to. I was indeed entertained, though I have...just one question: Do you fear defeat, or the uncertainty of victory?" Geese questions Ortega, taking measurement of his character. "Ninjas are not to be taken lightly after all, and he could have killed you given the chance."
"When we first spoke..I have to say that I sensed no killigg intent and I took his measure then. He was a man looking for the meaning of his strength and to see if mine was valid or just the stuff of propoganda. I've no ill will towards him and vice versa. I'd never faced a ninja before and it showed me much about what may lie ahead here in Southtown." Victor lays a massive hand on the back of the sturdy chair, his massive physique literally creaking with fiberous movement as he steadies himself, now directly infront of Geese desk.
"As to your question. I suppose i fear neither. I have tasted loss and the price of victory. Without experiencing both, how can a champion aspire to be more? That fight you witnessed...an exhibition match and two testing themselves against each other. A chance to learn something. Nothing more. But I will keep your warning in mind as I am sure I will meet him again."
Geese has dropped a connection.
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "You alright there? :D"
[OOC] Geese says, "Yes! So sorry"
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "It's cool ust was double checking!"
Geese ponders a long moment as he listens, taking a seat in his chair as he checks his desk for dust. He's listening, just multi-tasking. "Interesting. My curiosity was piqued when you called for a draw. Needed to know the kind of man who was willing to end the fight peacefully, rather than finish your enemy like most would. I certainly would have ended the fight. But, I suppose respect is also a form of strength."
Geese takes a deep breath. "But, now I do. Now then, I understand you have A request to make with me regarding your use of this stadium, as per your wonderful speech to the people." He locks eyes with Victor then, now they're talking business.
He takes notice of the man's size and how the chair he put his hand on and is already putting strain on it.
Always go for the kill, eh? Victor smile slightly as he hears Geese and then nods in acnowledgement of his curiousity as to his actions. Geese is not wrong. Many circumstances would have required taking the conflict to its ultimate conclusion. But, despite his words, Ortega does have the soul of a showman in him as well..and the principle of 'leave 'em wanting more' seems at play as well. A fight to test ones measure while leaving the outcome in question and both men on edge and satisfied with mutual respect? Now comes the anticipation for what will happen next in the plot.
But he leaves that part unsaid though some of it can be surmised no doubt. Instead his attention goes right to business and he invites himself to take a seat. The chair creaks but holds. It does its job. Victor is big. Superhumanly strong. But it will hold.
"Yes. It has been a year since the CWA has made its presence known in any global capacity and we centered our efforts on The Slammasters Tournament at our main stadium." He of course speaks of a tournament held a year ago where he himself served as a gauntlet challenge for the finalists at the CWA Main Stadium.
"I would like to expand our operations and cooperate with more partners in order to reach a new generation of potential stars. I believe holding matches, recruitment and training efforts in places of prestige like Howard Arena can be mutually beneficial to us both and draw the best of the best to Southtown."
Can you blame Geese?
[OOC] Geese says, "Agh"
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "Heh"
Can you blame Geese?
He didn't get to where he is now by keeping his enemies and rivals alive. Geese might not always start the fight, but he's nearly always certain that he ends them. He shrugs a bit, shaking his head as he turns his attention to Victor properly as he states his intention.
"mm." Geese grunts out as he turns to look upon the 'People's Champion' and he clasps his hands in front of him as he grabs a bottle of whiskey. "Drink?" he offers of the larger man, before he starts pouring it into small, but incredibly fancy-looking glasses, accompanied by a single ice cube.
"As for your request, I don't see why not. Though of course we need to define cut and economy, but we can leave that to our old-fashioned pen pushers." Geese ponders a long moment, before he continues. "Do you intend to hold another tournament here?" He asks bluntly.
He knows Geese may not approve or understand but..the two men are different. Ortega is..as said..The People's Champion. Geese has...well..he's just got a lot going on doesn't he. So it's understandable.
But one thing they do see eye to eye on is business.
"Thank you." he says, accepting the drink and manipulating he expensive glassware with well practiced ease despite those sausage sized fingers.
"And yes..of course. A proper deal that leaves us both satisfied is a certainity. As to a tournament..." VIctor pauses and then allows a smile to crease his bearded face, "I would like to plan on that happening, yes. I think a change of venue from the main stadium would do it well."
Approve or understand he most certainly does not, but one supposes Geese has simply never been one for such showmanship.
Okay, well...maybe sometimes.
"So I see." Geese's small smile turns almost predatory. "Will it be a repeat of last year, and shall you compete once again in a gauntlet style match up?" He questions curiously, hand lifting his cup finally to take a drink.
"Furthermore..." Geese adds, eyes slightly narrowing. "So long as you remember that Southtown is my town, and you are welcome guests, and that what we do here is for the betterment of my town...we will have no issues with one another." That slight territorial nature of Geese, co-opted with Geese's own pride and intimidation factor bleeding into the conversation.
"You need not be concerned." respond Victor easily and with confidence that borders -just- on dismissive. It's enough to imply that he's no interest in Southtown with that unspoken thread that he's not feeling threatened, even if he was. THere's a little bit of jousting going on here, indeed. How can there not be with two men with these personalities and egos at play.
"My interest and passion is in the CWA and its global presence. Whatever you have going on here..is not something I've come to disrupt."
He smoothly and swiftly moves on to answer the other question with a close lipped smile, "As to another gauntlet against the winners circle? Hmm..my involvement may be different in a few ways for what I have in mind. However..I'm not adverse to worthy challengers. I understand Southtown is home to quite a few, after all."
[OOC] Geese says, "sorry about that wait!"
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "it's cool. been a long slow day so all is well."
Geese did not feel threatened.
But, he did feel the need to make it clear that Southtown is Geese's territory and to respect his 'sovereignty'. Though as Victor seems to suggest that they will have no problems, albeit somewhat -close- to dismissive, seems to please Geese a great deal.
"Good." Then he dips his drink a bit more, before his attention shifts to the arena ring. "Hnnh. I may yet participate. Seems poor form if the owner of this arena did not prove -why- he owns this arena." there's was a quiet challenge in his words:
Geese was daring Victor to find out why.
The Muscle Bomber grows curious now but he then smiles nevertheless and muses,
"I see.. Well, though I've already tried my hand at a powerful ninja earlier..I suppose going straight from that into a fight with someone of your caliber makes the odds..fair."
He allows a broader smile now and then nods, "Very well. As said earlier, we'll leave working out the details of our agreement to others. Let's see this proof you have."
Geese chuckles, then the chuckles explodes into outright laughter.
"VERY WELL!" He calls with a laugh as he pushes himself to his feet from the desk and cracks his neck as he gestures down the path to the ring. "I'd hate to break my office after the display from earlier. Let's show each other what we have to offer." Geese begins to move past Victor, walking in the path to the ring, unless he's physically stopped. Meantime, the assistants grew a brain and got scarce.
"This is a far better way to negotiate anyway."
"We're of the same mind on quite a few things, Mr. Howard."
Ortega rises, towering up and up and then squaring his shoulders and loosening them before he follows after Geese, stepping into an easy stride behind the man as they head towards the arena.
"I admit..I was wondering if this opportunity would come up. I look forward to seeing what you can do.. I almost regret the earlier match now since you had a front seat but I may yet have a few surprises in store."
Upon reaching the ring he pauses, letting Geese enter first as he loosens his tie. His chest begins to swell, muscles stretching his shirt and jacket towards the tearing point as if he was slowly unbinding them from being compressed by his own restraint. "..Shall we make a wager of any sort or just keep this straight forward."
"Of that, we seem to agree."
Truth be told it doesn't take them long at all to get to the ring, but the conversation is nice. "Likewise. I must admit, the CWA is an organization that is home to many mighty fighters. I've long wished to trade blows with the one many call the 'Muscle Bomber'."
He makes it to the ring, and with a leap, he's in the ring, rising to his feet. "Hm. Should you win, I will give ten million dollars towards your organization. Should I win, well...I will allow you to choose your own stipulation. Good enough, or should we raise the stakes higher?" he questions of the man.
Otherwise, his blazer is removed as well as his tie, tossing them aside to the wind as he rolls his sleeves to his elbows.
THe arena floor shudders and the ring trembles as Victor lands, thunderously, an instant after Geese and opposite him. His jacket has been removed by now, given over to the care of one of his assistants but his shirt has begun waging a losing battle against his bulk as he strethces out larger and larger with his near cartoonish proportions now becoming fully revealed.
"Very well. I agree. We'll be sure that it is a fair exchange then. As to the rest.." He begins slipping into his combat stance, body braced against the ring floor and arms lifted up, huge hands ready to grasp. "...I will see that I do not disappoint you.."

The ring shakes from the massive man's arrival, but Geese does not move a single inch. Instead, his grin grows a little bit wider at the pure strength the other man seems to exhibit.
"I am pleased at this development." Geese then enters a classic Aikido stance. "We will see." He grins widely, like a carnivore rearing on his kill.
[OOC] Geese says, "BEGIN"
An unheard bell rings, an incisible and silent announcer speaks, The Muscle Bomber moves, suddenly springing into a lunging charge that carries him across the distance between himself and Geese as his movments shred what remains of his shirt into tattered streams of cloth. His arm raises, flexing briefly to reveal a bicep that gives the impression of a boulder beneath tanned skin and then stretches out like a tree trunk being hurtled horizontally at the master of Southtown. He's fast. Faster then he should be for his size and he seeks to cross Geese up and bring his arm across the mans body in a powerful lunging clothesline.

Geese underestimated his opponent.
The massive man moves like air and strikes with the voice of the mountains. It's clear that Geese was on the move, his hand moving to intercept the massive man with a strike that would make any other man flee for his life just to see it coming.
Instead, The strike never lands, the massive tree trunk of an arm slamming -hard- into Geese, though the strength of the blow only makes him slide backwards only a few feet. "Heh." He cracks his neck and re-enters a fighting stance. "Come."
An intersting irony in that..it was him underestimating Tundra not that much earlier that led to a similar sensation for Victor. He knows better then to even have a sliver of such over confidence in this situation though he smiles slightly upon seeing how well Geese weathered that blow.
"I see.." is all he utters. A low gutteral rumbling comment which is then supplemented by him spinning to adjust his momentum and then ducking low with a clenched fist and an arm once more bulging like a mountain range suddenly winding its way into his limbs.
His fist glows with burning chi and his form seems o light up with a soft sunlight glow from an inner flame. HE swings, bringing the arm up into a massive upper cut with chi summoned flame whirling around his limb.

Geese will not make the same mistake again.
So when Victor comes at him once more, the flames of his power enshrouding his fist as the massive man ducks low, but when the strike comes? Geese's hand channels the energy of wind and storm, a form hand grasping the massive man's fist and putting a stop to it completely. "A bit better." He tells him with a greedy smile.
In retaliation, Geese steps forward into the massive man's reach, lifting his left hand into the air as chi infuses the sharp edge of his hand with wind and cracking with electricity, then with a shout, Geese brings his hand down in a viscous chop at the massive man's shoulders, hoping to push him back or knock him into the ground.

"Hmm.." is all The Muscle Bomber utters as his uppercut is stopped and a blast of conflicting chi surges forth between the powerful fighters.
When Geese swings forward into a follow up strike, Ortega has already begun moving as well. His opposite arm coming around and his body lunging down and then up into another rising strike, this one fully ablazed in an almost column of sunfire that begins to spiral into being and follow the arc of the thunderous swing.

Geese looked confident when he threw his chi-infused chop.
Imagine his surprise when Ortega moved to mach him, watching as his opposite arm came up to strike Geese again with the blazing sunfire of his thunderous swing, the attack hitting Geese and launching him off to the side until he hit the ground. Though Geese ewas able to make it to his feet, his eyes narrowed as he once again entered a fighting stance.
A smirk on Geese's face though as he rubs off some blood from his lip. "You're pretty good."
"Well...I am the CWA Champion." quips Ortega with that dash of ego that would play well to a crowd, no doubt. He flashes a smile that could be considered charming if it wasn't attached to a head whose neck is wider then its skull which is all connected to a body that's absurd on just so many levels.
But he is quick to lunge in once again, this time reaching his massive arms for Geese in an attempted grapple that, should he succeed, will see him lifting the master of Southtown up and then overhead, over Victor and then back down again in a powerful german suplex.
"But I know, you've yet to bear your own fangs!" he booms even as he makes the attempt.

Geese replies to Ortega rather Cooly, though his fists clench a little bit tighter, especially since Ortega seems to charge Geese, arms attempting to shift around Geese to be able to lift him up and over his head for a German suplex. But alas, when Ortega tries to grapple Geese, he'll find he has grabbed nothing but air!
The reality is, Geese had jumped up and over Ortega! Then his hand reels itself back, chi gathering in the master of Southtown's hand, as he throws it forward in a palm strike type motion.
and suddenly, the wind takes solid shape as it charges at Ortega with -power- behind it. Perhaps this is Geese's fangs given shape.

Like some sort of enraged bull, Ortega comes charging forward directly into the roaring wave of energy. His arms raise and his forarms cross infront of him to bear the brunt of the manifested power and then to push through it with his arms swinging wide open to disperse what remains. Bruises and marks leave visible welts on his arm from the impact but The Champion continues on and again looks to close ranks with the elusive master.
"That's it. It's time for you to show -me- something!" he thunders with a voice primed for pumping audiences and berating challengers alike. "Show me -why- you're this towns master!"
Again his tree trunk arms come thundering in, atempting to once more engage Geese and if possible tumble him into a series of ring shaking throws.

[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "Ow, haha. Challenge met"
Geese saw it coming. Maybe the Reppuken was just to build up to something far more.
When Ortega just bulldozes straight through the Reppuken blast and calling out Geese through his actions as he thunders with his voice...and he challenges Geese's sovereignty. That was a mistake. Geese seems to completely -shift- in his demeanor, as if this was fun at first....but now? Now Geese was pissed off beyond belief.
So it may come as a surprise to Victor when he feels Geese's hand on the top of his head, and with a single movement, Geese tries to drag his head so hard that the rest of Ortega's massive body may follow with it, in order to try and slam his head face-first into the mat.
Oh so it's like -that- now.
Ortega hits the mat -hard-. The seemingly simple move executed with such perfect savagery that the colossus of a man sees a flash of white and is briefly disorientated before snapping back to reality and suddenly rolling over to push away and back from Geese into a low crouched position away from him,
A fire of his own seems to light up. Perhaps literally, as his aura blazes and burns - easily seen and sensed by one with the senses honed by Geese.
An instant later and he's upon him like a gargantuan great cat and bringing both of his arms in to once more go for the grasp.
He moves like a blur. One moment far and then suddenl filling up Geeses immediate space with his bulk as he go for the lock.
Success sees both men get launched into the air above the mat as Victor will jump and then come hurtling down with his victim flipped over to come down back first - and an aura of fire around them both as if they were literally a comet hurtled from on high.

It's like that.
Though Geese smiled savagely when he managed to take Victor down with that one swift move. Though his grin swiftly disappears when the colossus seems to literally move like a cat on the prowl, grabbing up Geese and launching him up into the air, the aura blazing bright like the sun as Geese is shifted into the air, and then they come down.
It's like a meteor, with Geese struggling to get free, only to experience a sharp impact as soon as they hit the mat. It would normally probably kill a man, or break him so badly that he wouldn't get up. But Geese is not like other men.
It may surprise Victor considerably when Geese gets up to his feet, his shirt torn and shredded, some blood trickling down from the back of his head, but with a crank of his neck, he enters a fighting stance yet again, spitting out some blood. "You're going to need to do better than that to beat me." he grins like a madman.
He was enjoying this.

"Good...good..very good!" declares Victor as he reaches up and pulls the last bit of shirt remains from his torso. His pants have also long been split asunder and burnt by his own chi aura revealing his ever present wrestling trunks beneath with the gold accents and armor padding gleaming against the sunlight the bruiser seems to emit.
He claps his hands together, muscles that grant hi his namesake, bunching up and dividing and subdividing into different plates of flesh in a display that would shake anyone else to their core. But not Geese,
"It would be boring and you'd be just like everyone else if that was all it took.."
But that's enough banter. He comes in again, surging rapidly and seemingly getting faster and faster as the fight wears on. His massive hand lunges up - grasping for Geeses neck as his other hand swings around to aid in the lift to try and go for the chokeslam.

Geese remains standing there, serious and eyes narrowed. He was taking Victor seriously...as an equal? Perhaps. Though as an opponent? Certainly. Geese can see the chi beginning to elevate around Victor as he manages to rip off his shirt and his pants burned off, showing his rather -loud- trunks and armor padding. Geese looks largely unintimidated by teh show of physical excellence, and when Victor finally decides to charge?
The hands that move for Geese's neck find nothing but air as the blonde warrior moves directly into Victor's personal space, one hand grabbing his wrist while the other finds a grip in Victor's abdomen, using his opponent's own momentum to try and throw him up and over his head in a perfect Aikido throw!

Well to be fair he is the CEO and Champion of the CWA which is pretty much all about gaudy fighting entertainment and differentiates itself from everything else by really leaning into that. So yes. Loud.
As his VIctor who seems to embody the contrasting worlds of cool businessman - and over the top wrestler even if there is no audience here to play to save himself and Geese.
EIther way, he goes tumbling to the mat once again as his aggressive move is countered and his force redirected to render his assault harmless. His eyes hood at something just behind his senses but he shakes it off and is back on his feet again.
Power surges through his body as he comes lunging in again. His expression contorts into an enraged look that seems to fuel his drive that much more. His fist comes swinging up and into the air and a sheet of flame erupts around him and then tidal waves forward, racing across the distance between himself and Geese in a destructive onslaught that arcs higher and higher as it follows the movement of his swing.

[OOC] Geese salutes
Geese is not above dressing rather loudly. If he was in his actual garb that was meant for combat, well...white and red tend to be a very loud combination.
All the same, the master of Southtown is keeping his cool, his expressing moving from that predatory grin from earlier to a measure of focus. His eyes unmoving, even if there's distraction from his assistants watching from the rafters, medical personnel already on standby in the event that this confrontation becomes much more brutal than it actually is.
But Geese simply rotates on his feet after he sends Victor over his head and onto the ground, but watches as the man built like a gorilla just manages to get right back to his feet like it was nothing, which makes Geese exhale slowly. He senses the power build up in Victor's body, even as Geese's hands relax from closed fists to open palms.
Then the wave of flame arrives with a vengeance, Geese's eyes narrow, and as it comes closer and closer? He pulls his open hand back, and he lunges it forward in a massive reppuken blast, the force of wind from the strike barrelling straight through the wave of flames like a massive drill, and coming straight for Victor's chest!
The rage is gone. A moment of a beast roaring up within the giant of a man that surged out that wall of flame. A wall that he is now actually surprised to see is punched right through with Geese's follow up response. THere isn o time for a quip or even a verbal note of praise. It all happens to suddenly and to quickly.
There isn't yet enough to return the favor with even greater force but instead he attempts to bring his arm around and then up again with a follow up burst of chi summoned fire which goes arcing into the incoming blast..and fails to disrupt it. Utterly so.
The impact of wind drives right into his massive chest and forces him backwards, skidding his feet along the central at before he braces his body and recoils, attempting to reorientate himself once more.
The strike overcame the wall of flames and struck Victor just as Geese had intended! Though Geese realized that Victor will immediately react, Geese attempted to close in the distance before the larger man even got the chance to retaliate. Geese crouches low, then rushes straight forwards, hands clenched tightly enough, cold blue eyes staring ever onwards.
When Victor manages to reorientate himself, he will find Geese's clenched fist coming straight for his jaw, clearly intending to rock his dome with a solid punch to the face.
Of course, that was the plan. But this battle...it rages on!

Notably, however, there are no quips and no jokes just yet. The tenor and rythem of the battle has changed slightly and the sunfire wreathed behemoth intends to try and change it again.
Instead his body turns, and twists - attemtping to bring Geese upwards overhead in a massive display of strength..and then back down again on the opposite side of him with a thunderous slam.

Though he is pulled in, when Victor attempts to change the rhythm of the fight and yank Geese over his head with a display of strength, there comes a moment when Geese is completely and totally vertical and he needs to figure out a way to get out of this situation...
And then he manages to land solidly on his feet rather than on his back, his feet denting the ring floor and somehow managing not to assist the impact by breaking the thing entirely. He lifts his head, attempting to make eye contact with the larger man, before his hand shifts against Victor's thumbs, attempting to break his grip, then grip him on the neck with strength behind it, his fist coming up, attempting to strike Victor directly in the diaphragm, maybe knock the wind out of him, or at least push him back to get some distance. There's no time for quips or jokes.
This was about proving, at this very moment, who was the better fighter.

Geese 0/-------/----===|=======\======-\1 Victor Ortega
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "Man wrong move haha"
The hit is powerful and for the first time, Victor Ortega -finally- shows a visual reaction that is a reflection of the awesome power on display. His eyes bulge and his face contorts into one of pain as the blow slams home and forces him backwards. He had options. He choose the wrong one. To slow to bring his guard up and he paid for it. The tide tips, dangerously, in Geese' direction.
Ortega takes several steps backwards, leaning like a tree about to tip over until his huge legs bulge and his body roots itself. Blood paints his mouth and upper torso but his eyes flash with fire and he simply grins grimly and close lipped.
And again with a blazing flash like a lunging solar flare, he's back on Geese once more. Gargantuan arms hurtle outward - attempting to grab Geese and once more send them on a ride--
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "more of this hits"

Geese says, "Hah, speaking wrong moves."
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "Haha yikes"
[OOC] Geese says, "DAMMIT! I gott get used to not using say XD"
The grasp is successful and Ortega spins and hurtles Geese over his shoulders and then backwards to the mat once. Twice. Three times in explosive suplexes. He then leaps skywards, carrying the Southtown master with him to a distance beyond where they had been before as he thunders, "MAXIMUM - MUSCLE - BOMB!!"
The two descend, once more like a comet. On impact a thunderous explosion of flame bursts upwards around them and Ortega releases Geese to flip backwards away from him and to let the shockwave of the impact carry Geese in the opposite direction.
It happened to Geese not once, but twice.
He punched Victor hard enough that would puncture a lung in most men, but apparently, Victor is not most men. He turns on his heel, as if that were it...the coup de gras, the end of the line. But alas, as soon as he turned his back, he feels the massive arms of Victor Ortega around him and once again, they go for one more ride.
Geese is suplexed hard once....twice....three times! Then, wit the final leap skyward, They soar high into the air and come crashing right back down, smashing Geese hard into the ground, the impact launches his body across the ring until he lands with a thud...two thuds...three....and then? Then he's not moving.
Is he dead?
The medical personnel immediately rush to Geese's side.
[OOC] Geese says, "in all seriousness though, that was a great fight."
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, " Yeah that was kinda amazing"
"Huff. Get up Howard. Wake up" rumbles Victor. He's not unsympathetic to the damage he just did - but he has absolute faith in that mans power to open his eyes before the medics even need to do much to aid him. He just did way to much to Ortega to not be able to snap out of it.
As for him, he's barely standing.. This took an incredible toll on him and he braces against the back of the ring to keep from falling as he staggers his great weight back and forth like a drunken sequoia.
"Come on man. We've two business empires to fatten up.."
Indeed, as soon as Medical personnel come to check him out, Geese's eyes open, a hand grabbing at the face of someone trying to help him and shoving them off.
After all, this was Geese Fucking Howard. He doesn't need the help of some simpleton, even though he hired them specifically to help him, managing to will himself to a knee, then shakily onto his feet, blood starting to pour from his mouth as he spits it out, blood trickling down his forehead and onto his cheeks, even as he stares directly into Victor's eyes.
"It seems...not once, but twice...I underestimated you. A mistake that won't happen a third time." he stares the other man down, as if they are about to go at it again, but Victor is tired. Geese, much as he hates to admit it, is tired. Both men are barely even standing anymore, before Geese lifts a hand. "I'm a man of my word. Ten million dollars to your organization." He snaps his fingers as an assistant rushes to get that done. "You are a worthy fighter, Victor Ortega. The CWA put their trust in the right warrior."
"Thank you. And you as well." responds Ortega to that statement.
Oh yeah. There was a bet. On the inside, Victor wasn't entirely serious about that, he supposes, but..some charities will appreciate that money being disperesed. As for Geese..
Ortega considers Geese, taking in that predatory and determined look with one of cool confidence and then he nods his head. "And yes, You did underestimate me. I did the same thing to that ninja and nearly paid for it. You spoke truth and wisdom in your office. AFter facing that ninja, I had to take that to heart and I came into your office with all that in mind and down to this mat with it as well."
He accepts a red and gold huge cape, almost like a curtain, when it's brought to him by an assistant and begins to step down from the ring. "I don't think -underestimating- me will happen again.."
Losing, on the other hand. Well..he just smiles once more to Geese but then begins hsi departure. Best to not push ones luck after all.
[OOC] Geese thinks thats a great closer
[OOC] Victor Ortega thumbs up!
[OOC] Victor Ortega says, "that was amazing haha"

[OOC] Geese says, "no doubt a Round 2 is in our future, methinks :)"
