:The scene opens to Jordan Ciserano backstage at Fight Club Live. He’s warming up for his upcoming World Title Classic match against Devin St. Claire taking a drink of water and stretching out his calves. He finishes and turns to the camera with a slight smile before slicking back his hair and talking.::
Jordan Ciserano: Tonight, is the first step into history.
::The crowd cheers as Jordan smiles wider.::
Jordan Ciserano: Tonight, will always be known as the beginning of a great journey. Tonight will never be forgotten. Tonight is the Redefine Pro World Championship comes one step closer to home.
:: Jordan hits his shoulder where the title would sit.::
Jordan Ciserano: Personally, I love the idea of a tournament because anything can happen. Upsets can take out the big guns early, the favorites can fine tune their skills for the later rounds, heroes can be created and destroyed in a three count. It is the perfect forum for a new champion to be crowned, the wrestler who knows when to conserve, when to fight, and how to win.
Jordan Ciserano: When it comes to winning, even with uncertainly surrounding the circumstances I can make a guarantee to all of you. In just a few minutes Jordan Ciserano will defeat Devin St. Claire in the first round and move one step closer to obtaining history. The first champion of the Revival and historically the first two time champion in Redefine’s history.
:: The crowd chant’s “Yes! Yes! Yes!” in response to the idea of Jordan reaching the top once again.::
Jordan Ciserano: Devin St. Clarie wants the title, he wants the glory, he wants the prestige of his name in the record books, but it’s not gonna happen tonight, not against me. He’s a great competitor, I’ve seen him wrestle for a long time, but great isn’t good enough. You must be the best. The best in strategy, execution, and performance and when it comes to those three categories yours truly has the clear upper hand. I’ve heard the saying “Any Given Sunday” meaning that any competitor can win on any day and with this field it’s certainly true, but against Devin, you’re about see why I deserve that title once again. Best of Luck Mate.
::Jordan salutes the camera and returns to stretching ready to face off against Devin St Claire in just a few minutes. His confidence is high, ready to fight and move one step closer to the gold. He smiles once again as the camera fades to black.::

I’m not going to talk about bulletSCARS…I’m not going to talk about facing Johnny. I’m here to do the business and get into the second round of this tournament. Because I am your next ReDefined Heavyweight champion.
But…there is one thing I will say…every single person in that arena and those watching this on your devices or televisions have their eyes locked on the best pro wrestler on this planet…and if any of you actually think Johnny Ajax…after an extended absence from that 20×20 squared circle…is going to beat me? Then you are a bunch of idiots. Johnny….get ready kid…here in a little while you can get back to brewing our beer.
Because Alan Envy is moving onto the second round.
