(The smell of rain is in the air. Wind is blowing as the scene comes into light. Lightning flashes across the sky as thunder cracks in the distance. The camera pulls back some more to show him leaning against the wall. He is looking up at the clouds cruising by as the wind whips.)
Kostoff: Well, now that I am heading into the LBI and decently healed up, time to take a moment and reflect on the last little war.
Kostoff: Reeves you brought it, but I was just better. Shouldn’t be a shock, I mean this is how things are going now.
(Lightning flashes across the sky again. He squints at the brightness of it.)
Kostoff: Now Crash, not really a fan of ya kid. Nothing personal. The only thing I even know about you is you lost your opening match on this tournament.
Kostoff: Now, you need to really sit back and ask yourself one very big question kid….what makes you think this time around your outcome is gonna be different?
Kostoff: Do you feel that you are in a better place this week against a Hall Of Famer? Do you think that I am gonna be a walk in the park kid?
(He laughs as the wind gusts harder.)
Kostoff: You see, like I have told folks leading up through the last few weeks all that you are is a stepping stone in my way for me to get what I want.
Kostoff: You, see you are another bump in my path Crash. Yea you might have been some king stud dick in some butt fuck fed that is as useless as a bag of dicks without a handle.
Kostoff: Here in HOW you are shit. You really are in no spot to be in the ring with anyone that has been through the wars here. You are the proverbial load that should have been swallowed.
(He leans into the camera and grins.)
Kostoff: Crash, real soon you are going to feel what a beating is like. You are going to feel pain. You are going to ache for weeks after our match is done.
Kostoff: And I am going to great delight in showing you just what fucking pains feels like.
(He shifts back from the camera.)
Kostoff: See ya in the ring boy….
(A clap of thunder pops off in the distance as the scene faded to black.)
