(The scene opens up in a parking lot. The sun beats down as the camera moves slowly across. The camera stops in front of automatic doors to a gym. As the camera enters the gym, the sounds of 7empest by Tool echos through the gym.)
(The sounds of metal banging on metal becomes clearer as you see Kostoff sitting on a bench breating heavy.) Sweat drips down his face and head as he closes his eyes.)
Kostoff: I guess I started to take things too lightly. I guess I took these boys too easy. So, now I need to get my ass in shape and prepared.
(He grabs a towel off the floor and whipes his face.)
Kostoff: That is on me. But as we all know I will be ready for the war that is coming our way folks.
Kostoff: So where to start at? Max? Why not. Max and I have had a few battles in the past. So now let’s get it on for this. A title shot? I mean why have I not stepped into a ring and not laid it all on the line?
Kostoff: So, the other two, i forget who they are, no disrespect but they are meaningless to me.
(He gets up from the bench and makes his way to the Smith Machine and leans on the rack. )
Kostoff: I take that back, the big boy and I had a good match. Deacon. Yea man we we tore that place down. We beat the hell out of each other.
Kostoff: I lost yea but man I enjoyed the fight.
Kostoff: I mean let’s be honest folks, we all know I simply enjoy a fight. I enjoy bleeding and I enjoy making others bleed.
(He looks into the camera and he laughs.)
Kostoff: So, let’s see what kind of a fight this turns into. Let’s see how far we can take this boys. Let’s see how much we can hurt each other and see how bad we can make the people in the audience sick to their stomach by the amount of pain and blood we unleash.
(His smile fades as he leans into the camera.)
Kostoff: Because at the end of this I only really care about inflicting pain.
Kostoff: See you in the ring boys
(The scene drifts to darkness)
