Eclipse
***TSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH***

*Static covers the screen before disappearing, giving way to a shot of the sky.  The sun, barely risen into view, lights a beautiful scene of orange and blue over Earth.  Clouds spot the sky, but there appears to be no chance of rain or storms today.*

???: Beautiful day for an eclipse.

*The camera pans down to reveal Syndicate, the WWX Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, looking up at the sky from the middle of a deserted road surrounded by cornfields.  The Los Angeles Outlaw is dressed in a white t-shirt and blue jeans and holds the World title over his left shoulder.  With his back turned to the camera and hands in his jean pockets, Syndicate appears deep in thought.*

Syndicate: I'm here in...well, the middle of nowhere, to be honest.  I don't even know where I am.  But in just a few hours, I will be in the direct path of the total solar eclipse passing over the United States today.  And I am ready to go.

*Syndicate reaches down and grabs a backpack propped up near him.  He unzips the top and reaches in, pulling out a pair of solar eclipse glasses.*

Syndicate: I've my eye protection...

*Next comes out a second pair.*

Syndicate: ...and a second one just in case the first pair breaks...

*Syndicate grabs a sheet of dark paper.*

Syndicate: ...a solar filter for my phone's camera...

*Finally, Syndicate takes out his smartphone.*

Syndicate: ...and, most importantly, my LG G4 smartphone with an Ultra HD camera.  I am ready to go!

*The champion smiles as he puts his supplies back in the backpack and sets it down on the floor.*

Syndicate: But that's in about two hours from now, so I've got some time to kill.  Let's talk about perseverance, shall we?

*Syndicate lowers himself and takes a seat on the pavement of the road.*

Syndicate: Per-se-ver-ance.  Noun.  Definition: the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even though it is difficult.  Perseverance is something that, I believe, any truly GREAT wrestler should have.  Every champion should be able to withstand a test, after all.  And that's exactly what I am doing right now with Krimzon Blaze.

*Syndicate smirks.*

Syndicate: Krimzon, I want to congratulate you on your victory this past week.  Sure, there were some shenanigans with a horrible referee who CLEARLY did not know how to count a submission win.  Sure, I may strongly believe that I rightfully should have won that match and sent your ass back down the ladder.  But that, unfortunately, didn't happen, and there's nothing I can do to change that.

Syndicate: However...by "winning", it didn't really help your situation all that much.  I ran the numbers, and I found out that, to win my Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship, you have to defeat ME, the greatest wrestler alive today, THREE TIMES in a row.  You've already accomplished it once, something that nobody else on the roster has been able to do in the past six months.  That alone is a big deal.  But THREE times, Krimzon?  That's gonna be a real challenge, and hell, if you can do it, you've earned the World title.

*The champion shakes his head.*

Syndicate: But you won't.  I know you won't, the WWX Universe knows you won't, and you probably know you won't.  I am a once-in-a-generation talent.  I stand in that ring alone, with no "managers" or "backup" or any shit like that, and I bring legends to their knees.  I am one-of-a-kind, the undisputed best professional wrestler on this planet.  And I know what it takes to put fools like you in their place.

Syndicate: Which brings us back to the word of the day: perseverance.  I have made a CAREER out of survival, Krimzon.  Everything I've done in the WWX has been based on getting back on my feet and fighting harder than I've ever fought before.  You knocked me down on Fury, Krimzon...but this week, I can GUARANTEE that things will go differently.  I am the World Champion for a reason, you know.  I'm not just some fluke; I'm the BEST.  The WWX Universe knows it.  They may cheer for you just as loudly as they cheer for me, but they KNOW who's the best in the squared circle.  It's time that your eyes are opened as well.

*Syndicate glances back up at the vibrant sky.*

Syndicate: I see this eclipse as a metaphor, Krimzon.  The sun that has burned brightly for so long - in this instance, me - will be covered up by the moon - that's you - for a few minutes later today.  Last week on Fury, you quite literally covered me up and got the win.  But this week...just as the moon moves away and the sun lights up the sky again, I will defeat you and take back my spot at the top of the ladder and show you exactly why I am your World Heavyweight Champion.  Welcome to the Syndicate.

*Syndicate flashes his trademark smile as the shot is overtaken by static.*
