AFTER BREAK DOWN
Break Down was a huge event for UWF and it saw the crowning of new champions. One of those was the UWF Hardcore Championship, a belt which had been held by Bree Swift, a woman who wasn't even suppose to be defending it on the show until she made an impromptu challenge. The challenge was answered and Bree ended up losing her belt to an unknown talent. A small, blonde girl from Cape Town, South Africa who had only just been signed by UWF a week before. Nobody knew much about her except for the fact that she put on one hell of a show on Break Down, using high risk moves that UWF was not accustomed to seeing. She was bloody, she was beaten up but this newcomer was the UWF Hardcore Champion… She was $adie.
After the show had gone off the air, $adie was taken back to the trainer's area to get her cut on her head checked on. She was sitting on the table patiently as the trainer was stitching her head up and next to her stood a strange, shirtless man with a bunch of random tattoos, a few gold teeth and a odd hair cut. Neither of them were saying anything but $adie was humming to herself as her friend was looking at an eye test on the wall a bit confused. As the trainer finished with $adie though in walked in UWF interviewer, Gary Perrons. He looked at $adie and her friend a bit confused before motioning for the camera man to follow him. GARY PERRONS: Excuse me, $adie?
She turned, a blank expression on her face as she turned and looked at the camera and then at Gary for a second. She put her hand on the Hardcore Championship and pulled it closer to herself. Gary wasn't sure what to say now since she didn't' actually respond to him. GARY PERRONS: I was hoping to get a word with you about what just happened out there during Break Down. ??????????: Me thinks he wants to interview you, man.
$adie looked at her friend for a second before she slowly turned and looked back at Gary. $adie slowly squinted and stared at him long and hard before she nodded her head. $ADIE: Acceptable.
Gary looked back at the camera man who just shrugged before he looked back at $adie a bit confused still by what was going on. He then cleared his throat and stepped closer to her. GARY PERRONS: First off most fans are just wondering who you are exactly. $ADIE: I'm $adie. GARY PERRONS: But who is $adie? $ADIE: Me, I'm $adie. You're a bit slow, man? You got a build up of wax in yo ears or somethin'. My Uncle Rasputin once had a bunch of wax in his ear. They filled his head with earwigs to eat it out. Sadly they kept eaten' and ended up munchin' on his brainstem. He lives on a boat now. ??????????: That was my uncle, man. GARY PERRONS: And you are? $ADIE: That's E-Z. GARY PERRONS: E-Z? E-Z- CHEEZY: E-Z Cheezy, my man!
E-Z then walked up trying to fist bump Gary but Gary just took a step back, not sure what exactly is going on or who E-Z is. He was obviously a confused by the pair and how exactly that had come to UWF. GARY PERRONS: And why are you here? E-Z- CHEEZY: I'm $adie's management or some shit. I ain't quite sure what I do but she wasn't coming to no damn America without me. I hear this place is whack. GARY PERRONS: Okay, you are her manager… That makes sense then. Now $adie why exactly did you accept the challenge of the Hardcore Bitch, Bree Swift and were you expecting to walk away with the Hardcore Championship like that? $ADIE: I don't really know if I thought I would win or not. I just hear her sayin' she be wantin' a fight and I was wantin' one too so I came out to help her out. Plus I was watchin' the show and I didn't like sittin' in the back and just watchin' it happen. I was wantin' to be apart of it so I took her challenge and I ended up with a shiny. I named it Hardy. GARY PERRONS: You named the Hardcore Championship Hardy? $ADIE: It ain't just a championship. No, it is Hardy and he is my friend now. I don't think I like people tryin' to take my friend away from me neither. Bree Swift wasn't friends with Hardy. No, she thought Hardy was some material thing she owned. Hardy is Hardy and Hardy does what Hardy wants when he wants to do it, you see? GARY PERRONS: I don't really follow you.E-Z- CHEEZY: The belt is her friend, yo. GARY PERRONS: It is just a piece of metal though, guys. It isn't a pet or a friend or anything.$ADIE: Rude!
$adie screamed out at Gary who jumped back, her eyes were wide and she was obviously upset with him. He put his hands up a bit defensively before he nodded his head. GARY PERRONS: I'm sorry… $ADIE: You best be, friend. Hardy don't like you now though. He may hit you if he don't like you. E-Z- CHEEZY: He hit hard, yo. GARY PERRONS: Back to the questions though… Now that you are Hardcore Champion you know you have a target on your back, right? You'll have Bree Swift and of course the #1 contender Carmen coming for you. Are you worried about them? $ADIE: I don't worry about nobodies. Those pretty ladies wanna fight me then I'll fight them. Ain't no thang. E-Z- CHEEZY: But a chicken wing. $ADIE: Bingo. You make a challenge and you can't expect to win it for sure. Bree should of thought of that before sayin' anything me thinks. As for Carmen she is a contender you say? GARY PERRONS: Yeah, she won contender ship. She was suppose to be getting the next shot at Bree until you took it. $ADIE: Oopsie. She may be mad at me. GARY PERRONS: I wouldn't want to make her mad either.$ADIE: If she is mad then I shall apologize to her. Unless of course she is rude then I'll just claw her eyes out and then go eat puddin'. Do you like pudding? GARY PERRONS: Yeah, it is pretty good. What does that have to do with Carmen though? $ADIE: It has everythin' to do with Carmen and it has nothin' to do with her at all, man. That is the beauty of it. Puddin' is everywhere and apart of everything. It is like the glue of the universe. E-Z- CHEEZY: That shit is deep, yo.
Gary looked at E-Z for a second before looking back at $adie who now had pulled the Hardcore Championship on to her lap and was slowly petting it as if it were a cat. GARY PERRONS: So you aren't worried about Carmen or Bree but you have been booked in your first official match on Adrenaline against "The Belief" John Hartman. $ADIE: The Belief in what? GARY PERRONS: That is his nickname. $ADIE: Why is that his nickname? GARY PERRONS: I'm not sure exactly. I think you would need to ask him to get more information. $ADIE: Maybe I shall do just that. GARY PERRONS: He is a former Hardcore Champion though so you have to assume he will be looking to beat you for a future chance at your new bel… At Hardy. $ADIE: Oh noes… He may try to take Hardy away just like Carmen might but I don't believe The Belief that he believes that I believe that there is a belief that he can do it. GARY PERRONS: That makes absolutely no sense.E-Z- CHEEZY: She is sayin' that he ain't gonna win, yo. $ADIE: Exactly. E-Z gets it but you are obviously not as wit it as he is, man. You gotta keep up or you gonna get lost. Johnny and me we ain't go no beef that I know of. I ain't actually ever heard of him before neither. You see we only got two channels back in Cape Town and UWF wasn't on neither. GARY PERRONS: Well Hartman has been a main stay here in UWF for some time. He has the respect of most the locker room and he is a crafty veteran to say the least. You'll have your hands full with him.$ADIE: I don't plan on grabbin' him with my hands and holdin' him though. I plan on doin' my ninja shit on him.E-Z- CHEEZY: She's a ninja, yo. GARY PERRONS: Really? A ninja? $ADIE: Yeah, I'm a fuckin' ninja. That ain't too hard to understand. Did you see what I did against Bree? That was some next level ninja shit and you ain't gonna see it nowhere else. John Hartman can't do it me thinks. That is why they brought me in. I do things people don't do here and I will do anything to win. GARY PERRONS: You did seem to enjoy bleeding during your match.$ADIE: I enjoy the sight of blood. It helps you know you are still alive plus it showed that Miss Bree really wanted to win. I don't wanna face someone who isn't interested in winnin' because those people are poppers who ruin the fun for everyone else. Belief better believe too like Bree did or I believe he won't be anyones Belief no more. That the God's truth. E-Z- CHEEZY: The truth, yo. GARY PERRONS: I got it… You don't need to tell me again.$ADIE: Tell you what again? GARY PERRONS: He just repeated you. E-Z- CHEEZY: Did not, yo. You hear me repeat somethin' $adie? $ADIE: I ain't hearing nothin'… Well me thinks I may of heard a mouse in the wall. If so we need to catch it and make us some dinner. GARY PERRONS: You eat mice for dinner? $ADIE: Why wouldn't you? Sometimes that is all that is around, man. You gotta eat what you find but I like squirrel more. Mouses are my friends and I like to pet them more then eat them. E-Z- CHEEZY: Make a good stew though, yo. $ADIE: Am I all done with the stitching? You did a good job… You should make quilts.
The trainer nodded his head, before walking away without saying anything. $adie pushed herself off the trainer's table and put Hardy on her shoulder before leaning her head over and giving the belt a kiss. GARY PERRONS: You guys leaving? $ADIE: We gotta find a place to crash tonight, mate. GARY PERRONS: UWF provides hotels for the talent. E-Z- CHEEZY: We got kicked outta there, yo. $ADIE: They acted like we weren't suppose to build a shack out of the mattresses. I like having a smaller room though. I'm used to it so I built one and they got all hissy pissy at us. Not clue. E-Z- CHEEZY: I saw a place under the bridges with some cardboard houses, yo.GARY PERRONS: That's where homeless people live. You don't want to go there. $ADIE: Why not? They are good peoples too. If they got a fire, some grubs and some cover then we'll be good. See you around, man.
$adie slapped Gary on the ass before she walked out of the trainer's office with E-Z following close behind. Gary watched them go and shook his head, totally confused as to what exactly just happened in front of him and who exactly UWF had just hired. Gary turned, making sure they were gone before he turned back to the camera man, shoving the microphone at him. GARY PERRONS: Where the hell do they get these people… ?
ONE WEEK AGO BRETT FIXER: What the hell am I doing here, Becky?
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
Brett Fixer, member of the UWF Production Team, said into his iPhone as he drove through the slums outside of Cape Town, South Africa. He had on a pair of sunglasses and a UWF polo shirt as he drove the black Jeep through the shanty town trying to find the place he was told to go. He had been driving around for nearly a half hour when he got fed up and called his boss and Head of Production, Becky Robinson. BECKY ROBINSON: I told you, Brett, you are finding that girl from those YouTube videos and you are going to sign her to a contract. Eddie Kassidy saw the damn video of her doing like a corkscrew 630 off a ladder in some backyard match down there and he wanted her. He is the boss, Brett, and someone had to go down there to find her. BRETT FIXER: Why me though? I mean you could of sent anyone else. It is hot and dusty here. Plus this address you guys found is in the middle of like a shanty town. It is a scary place. BECKY ROBINSON: Just find her and get her over here. Your job is on the line, Brett. Kassidy liked what he saw and he told me to make sure she was there for the Adrenaline after Break Down. You know how they are all complaining about the lack of international stars on the roster too. A South African will shut people up about that too. BRETT FIXER: Kassidy should of came down here if he wanted her… Wait. I think I may of found the place. The notes you gave me said to find a place with a metal dinosaur outside and I think I see that.
Brett stopped the Jeep in the middle of the road and instantly a bunch of kids ran over to talk to him but he waved them away as he pulled off his sunglasses, trucking them into his polo before he walked towards the building. It was a small one or two room shack with no glass in most the windows and a metal T-Rex built out of scrap metal in front. Brett shook his head as he walked over to try to peek in the window. BRETT FIXER: This can't be right, Becky. This place looks abandoned… Actually most of these places look abandoned. BECKY ROBINSON: Just knock and find out if she is there. Her name is $adie and it is spelled with a dollar sign for the "S" for some reason. My sources down there say she is very particular about that. BRETT FIXER: A dollar sign? So she's like a gangster or something? BECKY ROBINSON: I don't know! Just knock on the door, get the girl, get on a plane and come back here before Break Down. I gotta go. BRETT FIXER: Wait… Shit.
But before Brett could argue anymore Becky hung up on him. He shook his head, putting his phone back in his pocket as a stray dog walked up and started to lick his shoe. He looked around nervously for a second before he walked up to the door and knocked on it softly a few times. Nobody answered at first so he shrugged and nodded his head.BRETT FIXER: Looks abandoned… Time to go home.
He turned to leave but right as he did the door swung open suddenly and standing there was E-Z Cheezy wearing a pair of track pants and holding a cooked bird's leg in his hand. He was chewing on it as he looked Brett up and down. E-Z- CHEEZY: What the fuck are you, yo? BRETT FIXER: I'm Brett Fixer. I work for UWF and I was looking for a girl named $adie. Does she live here? E-Z- CHEEZY: Me thinks you already found her, mate. BRETT FIXER: You're her? I saw the video and I'm pretty sure it was an actually girl and not some…
Brett stopped himself before saying anything insulting as he realized he had no reason to really judge the man in front of him and because E-Z had one eyebrow raised and was already looking a bit offended as he let his hand with the food in it lower down slowly. BRETT FIXER: You. I'm sure it wasn't you. E-Z- CHEEZY: I ain't sayin' she is me, yo. That just doesn't make sense. What I is sayin' is that you need to turn around.
Brett nodded his head and turned around slowly and as soon as he did he jumped back into E-Z, nearly knocking him down as $adie stood behind him with a katana in her hand and it was aimed right at Brett's throat. BRETT FIXER: Holy shit! $ADIE: I'm a fuckin' ninja, man. What do you want? I hear you say you work for some company or something? BRETT FIXER: Yes… I work for UWF. $ADIE: What's that? BRETT FIXER: The Universal Wrestling Federation. My boss wanted to have you fly to American to sign you to a deal. E-Z- CHEEZY: He wants to give you mad money, yo. $ADIE: Last time someone said that they ended up stealin' our hubcaps when we left. How do we know you are reals? BRETT FIXER: I got a business card and… I have an American passport you can see. Can you put that sword down? It is make me nervous. $ADIE: Hmm. You believe him, E-Z? E-Z- CHEEZY: He seems legit. Those guys who took the hubcaps didn't have teeth or nothing. He looks American, yo.
$adie lowered her katana and backed away before she put the tip of it in the ground. She stared at Brett for a second, turning her head from left to right to check him out. He looked around nervously as she nodded her head. $ADIE: Why you want me in Americas? BRETT FIXER: We saw your YouTube videos of your matches and we were hoping to sign you to a contract. UWF is looking for new, exciting international talent all the time and we think you would be a great addition to the roster. $ADIE: I get to fly on a plane? BRETT FIXER: All the time. You'll fly out of Cape Town with me to America tonight if you want. Then we can go to Chicago for Break Down.$ADIE: E-Z is coming. BRETT FIXER: What? I don't know about that.$ADIE: Then I am staying. E-Z is my blood. BRETT FIXER: He is your brother? $ADIE: No! BRETT FIXER: Your boyfriend? $ADIE: No, he is my blood. Now you wanna deal or not? BRETT FIXER: Shit. Okay, we can bring E-Z or whatever his name is too. $ADIE: You got a deal then. Let me go grab my wrestling pants and shoes then we go, yeah? BRETT FIXER: Sure. If you are ready that quick then I'm good getting out of here. $ADIE: Wait here… If you see a bunny don't touch it. BRETT FIXER: Why not? E-Z- CHEEZY: That bunny is mean, yo.
With that $adie walked past Brett and into the shack with E-Z. The door slammed behind them and Brett stood there looking around a bit lost and confused. He then noticed a rabbit next to his Jeep and he backed away a bit, not sure why he was scared but the words of E-Z ringing in his head that the bunny was mean. After a minute more the door swung back open and $adie came out wearing a white hoodie and sweats with E-Z following behind her. Her katana was on her shoulder and she had a small bag over her other arm. BRETT FIXER: You can't take that sword on the plane.$ADIE: Why not? What if the plane is attacked by spies? I gotta show them I means business. BRETT FIXER: There won't be spies. You could ship it to Chicago if you really need it but they won't let you bring it on the plane.
$adie looked at her sword for a second. She then walked over in front of the metal dinosaur and reached up, putting it in his tiny arms and nodding her head at it. $ADIE: Watch that 'til I get backs. Don't let the spies get it.
$adie turned back around as Brett was getting into his Jeep. Brett pulled his phone back out, calling up Becky once more as $adie and E-Z were getting into the Jeep with him. BECKY ROBINSON: Did you get her or are you calling to complain? BRETT FIXER: I got her and some other dude… I don't know who or what he is but she wouldn't come without him. We didn't discuss money or anything either. She just agreed and jumped in the car. Kind of odd.
He looked over at $adie as she leaned down, picking up the bunny and kissing it's head before she jumped up into the front seat next to Brett. BRETT FIXER: These two are… Something else, Becky. BECKY ROBINSON: Just get them here and maybe we can find a spot for them on Break Down. BRETT FIXER: Will do. See you tomorrow.
As soon as he was finished talking $adie reached over snatching the sunglasses off the collar of Brett and putting them on. He was about to reach back for them but $adie snapped her jaws at him like she was about to bite him. BRETT FIXER: Hey! $ADIE: Mine now. BRETT FIXER: Those are mine though. E-Z- CHEEZY: They are $adie's now, yo. BRETT FIXER: I guess so… I'll just write them off as a business expense. Let's get out of here and get you to Chicago. Who knows what will happen when we get you in the arena…
Brett turned the car on and started off through the slums once more trying to get back to the city part of Cape Town. $adie just watched things go by, in her head not sure if anything that was happening was real or a trick but she was always up for an adventure and Brett seemed like someone she could beat up if he was lying. She looked back at E-Z who gave her a thumbs up and a head nod. $adie leaned back, ready for America but Brett really wasn't sure how ready UWF would be for her once she got there.
