Leone promo on 606v2
The camera cuts to the backstage area in the medical room. A doctor is standing over a patient on the medic table and trying to instruct him.
Doctor: All Iím saying is that for the 14 months youíve been an active superstar here, youíve easily been my most regular visitor.
???: What are you trying to say Doc, that I quit wrestling?
Doctor: No, Iím saying that maybe you need to start hanging back a little and let someone else take the lead, rather than fighting every battle yourself.
???: Well obviously you donít know me as well as you think you do then...
The doctor is pushed aside and the man on the table is revealed to be Keith Leone. Leone has his ribs bandaged and has a lot of bruising around his face.
Leone: I have never backed down from a challenge and have always fought for what I believed in. Would I have stood up to Genesis without a mentality like that? No, and weíd all still be under the autocratic rule of Alex Walker. I will never stop fighting for what I believe in and I will damn sure not let a bunch of neíer do wells ruin my federation.
Doctor: That may be your view, but at this rate, that ideology is going to cost you sooner rather than later. Iím going to go and get some more bandages and let you cool off for a minute.
The doctor leaves the room as Leone rests his head in his hands and shakes it for a moment, before bringing it back up in a state of slight tiredness.
Leone: It really is a case of same sh*t different day for me. I have the odds stacked against me in a match, I then overcome those odds only to be beaten down by a bunch of goons, I wonder where I have seen all of this before? Heck, itís even still Lex Hart who swoops in at the end to get the glory, but Iíll get onto that situation later. TWA, last week I called half of your guys the 3 for £10 section of a wrestling agency, now I donít even think theyíre worth that. You threw all of your guys at me and yet I still came out the winner of the match. You had monsters, jesters and three former World Champions, however much I disagree that a TWA Title is worth anything, and you still failed to beat me. Maybe thatís why your company failed, or maybe itís just because it was never a company and really just a way of allowing Crowley to exercise his megalomania, which is at least what it has become now. Crowley, I know you are the one pulling the strings here, and as tough as you think you once were, you know that youíre not strong enough to fight myself, Jackson Black, Gazzy D or any of the true 6CW roster, hence this little band of security youíve assembled to take out the rest of the 6CW roster. But Iíll just remind you Crowley, the last guy that tried to take me down is now just a quivering wreck in his GMís chair, taking orders from the likes of Mike Hill, so imagine what Iím going to do to a guy who has actually assaulted me himself. But really it isnít the real TWA guys that I find most comedic at this point in time, that accolade goes to Geoff Steel. People have been telling me that Geoff Steel and Zach Corchia are both still good guys and are just standing beside the guys they respect, but I tell those people two things; first of all, I donít care about Zach Corchia. He is the epitome of the TWA reject and ever since arriving here he was beaten up by Visage and is now being pushed around by some old man, that doesnít really scream great worker to me. I then tell them that I think that Geoff Steel has shown himself under his true guise, as a coward and a sell-out. If he would have walked into this building alone, heíd have had the love of the fans and the respect of most of the locker room, heck, even I would have at least admired his guts on occasions, but clearly all of that was just a front. You donít think youíre good enough to take on a guy like me, a guy you could never beat, so youíre riding on the coat-tails of a failed group of superstars trying to make real names for themselves, youíre no better than any of them now, congratulations.
But then back onto the parasite himself, my old pal Lex Hart. You know Lex, I didnít think it was possible for a man to fall further down than have a team of men win his matches for him and ensure that he never had to make a real title defence. But to actually have another group of men do your dirty work for you proves that you could do it. But I guess that you donít have to pretend to care about this group while they do the dirty work for you, such as beat me down to a pulp so you could steal the 6CW World Title belt. Now I donít know if you werenít watching last week, but I threw that belt down, because that belt means nothing to me. I was the best for 9 months before I held it and I am still the best now, all that belt actually is, is a way to give the insecure reassurance that they are the best in this company, but look at the last 2 World Champions; yourself, a man who was never able to make a successful title defence, Geoff Steel, a man who has never beaten me and lost to me on 3 separate occasions while he held the title. I am the World Champion, Iím the best and have been since I first arrived in 6CW, so you keep hold of that precious belt of mine and really cherish it, as all itís giving me a chance to do is have that feeling of taking it away from you all over again.
But to get to current affairs, I am booked in a match to fight the true embodiment of TWA ďstardomĒ, Zach Corchia. Now Iíve made my feelings clear on you Zach, youíre a nobody who makes the likes of Kenji Hidari seem like seasoned 6CW veterans. The fact that when I came in to 6CW and had to claw my way from the ground up and you then come in to the federation and are welcomed with a red carpet really boils my blood. So now, Iím going to give you the welcome I have been waiting so long to give you to 6CW and if I get some vengeance for the sneak attacks you have been part of for the past weeks, then all the better.
From off camera the doctor walks into shot with a set of bandages in one hand and a syringe in the other.
Leone: Oh good, more needles without any of the fun stuff in them.
Doctor: Just take it like a man before I start sending you to the vets for your medical work.
Keith Leone looks coldly at the doctor as he moves towards him and the scene fades to black.
