One Man Scandal
Shawn Winters

Romantic Comedy

It's funny how falling feels like flying for a little while. There is a reason why they call it “falling” in love not flying or walking. “fall” into love as if it was a mistake. When you fall it's never expected. You don't walk down a set of stairs thinking: “I'm going to fall straight down these.” Love is a tricky thing and it's not something to take lightly. When you fall in love you fall hard and fast. You feel like you're flying...that is until you hit the ground. When you hit that ground it's the most real thing you'll ever experience. I have experienced this all in mere days. I have fallen in love with my wife and now I've hit the bottom. Now, I know I still love my life but I'm no longer falling. I've just hit the ground of reality that the chances of me getting her back? Well let's just say Vegas won't be giving me very good odds. But hey...if Greg Cherry can get his wife back then things look good for me right? Well not if you ask Hannah. Everything I had done, all my hard work to get her to talk to me was all for not. I pretty much made any assumptions she had about me fact. I am a drunk, I am a frequent drug user, and I am at the top of my game physically. Yet as ones professional life rises his personal life falls. Look at all the great song writers over the centuries. Their greatest songs come through pain and misfortune. Shilo Valiant doesn't stand a chance at Rise to Greatness because through all of my trials and tribulations I will create my greatest masterpiece and that's regaining the World Heavyweight Championship. Hopefully that piece of gold can fill a void in my personal life that was once held by my wife.

July 14th, 2011

* The Greaternity bus tour has been underway. Ty has just arrived to Nashville, Tennessee where Friday Night Ammo will be held tomorrow night. Shawn had to postpone the tour to go back to Los Angeles to see his wife. Something that didn't go as well as he had rehearsed in his mind. Now that it seems to be completely over Shawn has taken the Greaternity Gone Wild tour to heart much like Ace Marshall has. The funny thing is, Shawn doesn't even hold Ace responsible for what happened at his house. At this point Shawn knows that there is nobody to blame but himself. They've stopped in cities from North Carolina and Tennessee putting Girls Gone Wild to shame. With a video camera and digital camera's Greaternity has been living the high life. *

Ace – If there is a drunk hot college chick out there to make a bad decision we shall be there! If there is a a group of hotties drunk enough to have a massive orgy we shall be there! If there are hotties with daddy issues debating whether or not to stroke that metal pole we shall be THERE!

Charlie – We should have that slogan on the side of the bus! With a picture of you and Shawn double teaming me!

* Right then Shawn walks out from the back of the bus where his bedroom was. *

Ace – It's about fucking time you piece of shit! I was starting to wonder if you overdosed back there.

You'd think that I'd have some sort of witty remark to make back at Ace after that comment but the idea of an overdose wasn't the worst in the world. They say that something like 70 percent of people who kill themselves is because of a broken heart. I've never experienced a broken heart before but if this is what it's like then touche people. You took the easy way out. I wish I could just sit here and enjoy life. I mean...I have the world by the balls right now. I'm main eventing Rise to Greatness with a chance to become a three time World Heavyweight Champion. I'm going to get a MASSIVE bonus from the company because of that. I should seriously be on cloud nine right now. Instead all I can think about is the several mistakes that has lead me here.

Shawn – Have you ever wished that there was just one or two moments in life that you could change? Like one mistake that you could just get rid of?

Ace – Like the girl I hooked up with last night? I wish she had bigger tits.

Shawn – I'm serious. Why is it that with my victory at Taking Hold of the Flame which is arguably my biggest victory I'm only thinking about what I've lost along the way. I mean seriously guys, I'm tired of putting on a face in front of the entire world when I go out on tv each week. This concept of Shawn Winters having to be perfect all the time is exhausting. The fact is I can't let people see me like this. Hell I didn't even want you guys to see me like this but I'm tired of pretending all the damn time. Drugs can only dull your emotions so much.

Charlie – Grab a beer and take a load off. Live in the moment, don't live in the past. All you can really worry about is what position you want me in tonight. (winks)

Ace – Shawn listen...I was there when this whole thing happened at your house. It's a horrible thing to have happen but the fact is there isn't anything you can do about it now. You say that you don't want this to be a repeat of Rise to Greatness 2009 because you got arrested and had to leave the company afterwards. Let's face it...if it wasn't for Ty you'd probably in the same boat right now. You need to get your head straight because picking up the pieces of Shawn Winters isn't exactly what I like to call a party.

I hate it but the truth is they're right. I'm sick of living like this. I'm sick of this feeling that is known as guilt. This feeling as though I have a reputation to live up to.

Shawn – I guess I'm just destined to be alone.

Ace – Alone? You're never alone. You're constantly surrounded by people. I don't follow your logic.

This whole Greaternity lifestyle I thought would help me put my mind at ease but it really hasn't. I mean hell I've been telling girls to pretend that their name is Hannah. I am so pathetic. If I was somebody else I would be making fun of me so much right now. I go out in front of millions of people and I berate somebody for being numerous different things however when it comes right down to it, I'm no better. When people look at me...when they haven't seen Shawn Winters behind the curtain they're jealous because they think that I have the perfect life and that's what I want them to think but the fact life sucks. Sure 3 years ago my life was awesome and perfect for me at the time but at some point I've got to come to terms that I'm 30 years old and I seemingly haven't changed in 10 plus years. At some point aren't you supposed to grow up? At some point aren't you supposed to hit an age or a time in your life where everything just falls into place. I don't wanna be doing this well into my 40's. I don't want to be CHBK going out and wrestling in front of people tarnishing my legacy because I'm a shell of a man that I used to be. I want to have some dignity and be able to walk away from this business but what's there to leave for? Usually people have families and things like that to tide them over but all I'm going to have is an empty house. The sad truth is you'll probably hear on the news of a Shawn Winters over dose in his home where he has been dead for over a week because there wasn't anybody around to find him. That's the sad reality of my life. I used to think that it wasn't too late to change it but after the last fiasco with Hannah I think that it is.

Ace – Shawn look at me. Look at me. I know that you're feeling shitty at the moment but you've got to realize there are more women out there. It doesn't just end with Hannah. Learn from this mistake and when the next girl comes along don't make it again. You're Shawn Winters, you act like you're not going to find anyone else ever again.

Charlie – Shawn...look at me. I've been with you through a lot of this marriage and the fact that things are starting to bother you NOW after all the shit we've done...and I'm talking about some kinky shit.

* Charlie winks at Ace. *

Charlie – You've seriously got to look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself whether you truly have a problem or you're just pretending. If you have a problem take care of it but the truth is the only person that is going to do that is you.

Shawn – You guys really know how to make a guy feel better you know that?

Ace – Well we're not going to give you a blow job if that's what you're hoping for.

Charlie – Speak for yourself haha.

* Shawn laughs a bit. *

Ace – There you go! We've been advertised by this bar to be in town so there's going to be tons of women just ready to pounce on our biscuits. Now come on, grab a beer and let's make these Tennessee girls Volunteer to ride our cocks....get it? Because they're the Tennessee Volunteer's?

Shawn – Trust me Ace...we get it, you're just not funny haha. You're better than that...come on.

* Time goes by as Greaternity has been partying it up with the bus parking outside of a bar where the party seems to be taking place outside in a patio drinking area. Music is going and girls are dancing while Shawn, Ace, and Charlie are handing out passes to get onto the bus later. Right then Shawn is seen being led by a cute young girl by the hand onto the bus and towards the bedroom. She throws him down on the bed and starts kissing him aggressively. She takes off her top and starts to rub Shawn's crotch. She then stops and looks at him confused. *

Girl – You're not even hard. What the hell? Am I not hot enough for you or something?

* Shawn throws the girl off of him and throws his legs over the edge of the bed and runs his fingers through his hair. *

Girl – I mean I can try harder you know? I have ways to get you horny.

Shawn – Shut up....just shut up.

Girl – you like, need a minute to compose yourself or something?

Shawn – No...just's not you. It's....ya know what just forget it.

* Shawn stands up and grabs his beer before taking a drink. *

Shawn – Just go back outside...if anybody asks I fucked you.

* The girl grabs her shirt and puts it back on seemingly embarrassed and confused. Shawn motions his head for her to leave which she does. Shawn leans backwards against the wall of the bus and sighs. *

I wish I could say that this is the first time that this has happened but I've been doing this for a while now. For the first time I'm realizing that this is just wrong. What I'm doing, it's all just....wrong. I bring girls into the bedroom and it's all just routine now. They try and try but it's the same result. Doesn't matter how hot they are or how many there are it's just not happening. I know that it's not because of how much I've had to drink because that feeling is different. This time...I just know that each of these girls aren't Hannah.

Shawn – I am such a little bitch.

* Right then there is a knock and Charlie walks into the room as Shawn looks at her. *

Charlie – You're a little bitch huh?

* Shawn smirks a bit before taking a drink of his beer. *

Charlie – know I'm not good at these things but I'd be lying if I said I didn't notice some things. I mean for starters you haven't touched me in weeks. Now if it wasn't for a bunch of other guys or girls I'd complain but this whole bus thing works for me too.

Shawn – Glad everybody else is enjoying it.

Charlie – SERIOUSLY!!! This whole “whoa is me” attitude of yours is starting to depress me and I'm not an easy person to depress. You need to get your shit together Shawn.

Shawn – (sarcastic) Thanks for the pep talk Charlie I feel better already.

* Shawn tries to walk past Charlie only for her to block him in. *

Charlie –'re not leaving. I literally just saw a girl who I can honestly say I'd part the red sea for. And yes that was a period reference and I saw her leave after being in this room for less than a minute. Now I know you Shawn and I know you're not quick on the draw so I know that you didn't have sex with her. I've noticed that there has been a trend as of late and it starts and ends with you. Now you're going to sit down and you're going to tell me what the fuck is up. I know this whole Hannah thing is weighing heavy on your mind but you didn't have a problem with cheating on her before so you're really going to have to try and explain why you have a problem with it now when she has pretty much all but ended it with you.

* Shawn sits down on the bed as Charlie just stares at him. *

Shawn – What am I supposed to say Charlie? I'm fucked up. I go around every night living my life like a rolling stone and in the end all I want is to lay down in bed knowing that Hannah's right there next to me. I used to love being on the road because that meant I was able to cheat on my wife because it was the popular thing to do. It's what's expected of me. Well you know what? I'm tired of doing what's expected of me. You know why I haven't touched you in weeks? Because I don't love you.

Charlie – Good...I don't love you either. You're just a good fuck which is why I've stuck around.

Shawn – All I can think about is her Charlie...I've just been slowly punishing myself over this whole issue for two months now. I'm either punishing myself or drinking and doing I don't even know how many more drugs to nullify the feelings. I'm literally my own worst enemy at the moment.

Charlie – Shawn spoiler alert but this isn't a movie. Your life isn't a romantic comedy. You're not Ryan Reynolds and Hannah isn't Katherine Heigl! There isn't going to be a plane to catch. There isn't some sort of moment of clarity where she finally realizes how you feel. There isn't going to be that slow clapping moment in front of a large crowd of strangers at the air port as you two kiss and live happily ever after. This isn't a movie Shawn...I'm sorry but your life isn't scripted. In real life you make mistakes and live with them.

Shawn – You're right....

Charlie – I know I'm come on...leave the things that you can't control to other people and retake control of your own life.

* Charlie turns around and walks out leaving Shawn alone with his thoughts. *

God I wish my life actually was a romantic comedy. I can see it now. Ryan Reynolds as Shawn Winters and Katherine Heigl as Hannah. Yeah...I wish I could picture somebody other than her as my wife but she's stuck in my head now thanks to Charlie. I could make as many mistakes as I wanted and I'd know that in the end I'd end up with the girl in the air port while a bunch of strangers stood clapping as we kissed. As much as I try to portray it...nobody's life is that perfect. I wish my life was a romantic comedy....

Life As A Romantic Comedy

* The movie shows Shawn Winters played by Ryan Reynolds and Ace Marshall played by Charlie Day inside of a house of some kind. Shawn is pacing back and forth. *

Shawn – I've got to stop her.

Ace – Dude, you still have some time. I just called and her plane doesn't leave for another 25 minutes. You need to get to that airport right now!

Shawn – I'm gone!

* Shawn rushes out of the house with his keys before coming back inside. *

Shawn – I don't know how to drive a bus!

* The viewing audience laughs. *

Ty – Does somebody need a bus driver?

* The viewing audience cheers at the sight of a cameo of Wayne Brady as Ty. *

Ace – Alright! We're all going! Who knows...maybe I can pick up a hot chick at the air port. Pretend I'm an international business man from Bangkok. Heh...get it....BANG COCK!

* The viewers laugh. *

Shawn – Can we focus on me for a second instead of your constant need to get laid? I'm about to try and stop the love of my life from leaving the country forever! You know those French guys! They're all charming with their accent and their big words and their inability to shower!

* The viewers laugh. *

Shawn – They're primed for stealing Hannah away from me. I won't let the next time I see her be a random encounter with her kids while I'm still alone and pretending that Ace is my gay lover in order to save face and act like she wasn't the love of my life.

Ty – Dude you could do a lot better than Ace.

* The viewers laugh. *

Ace – Seriously? I'm a gay man's fantasy. I'd have to constantly remind them that my eyes aren't on my cock.

* The viewers laugh. *

Shawn – Can we get off of your cock for 25 minutes please?!

* All three guys stare awkwardly at each other in silence. *

Ace – Good thing there wasn't any chicks around to hear that otherwise Hannah would be the least of your worries.

Shawn – I've got to get to the air port NOW!!

Ty – Let's go!

* All three guys run out the door as Ty drives the bus as fast as he can to the airport. Shawn has five minutes to reach the gates to Hannah's flight before she's gone forever. Shawn runs as fast as he can past people even knocking an old lady down that Ty helps up. Shawn gets to the point where he has to check in. He takes off all of his metal items and shoes and places them in a basket before walking through the metal detector. He walks through and it beeps. *

Security – Step over here we need to search you.

* Shawn and the security officer step over to the wall. The security guard starts searching him rubbing him down. He then leans into his radio. Shawn takes off running. *

Security – We have a code 22! We have a runner!

* Shawn is running shoeless past people and running up escalators. He reaches the terminal for the flight to Paris. *


* Nobody turns around as there is a massive group of people as they are starting to board the plane. Shawn rushes down the side and grabs the intercom to the PA system. He jumps up onto the counter. *

Receptionist – Hey! What are you doing?!

Shawn – Oh shit what am I doing?

* Shawn is thinking drastically what he wants to say before this happens.... *

Shawn – (singing) I'll make love to you
Like you want me to
And I'll hold you tight
Baby all through the night
I'll make love to you...

* Shawn notices an old lady looking up at him with a smile. *

Shawn – Not look like my grandmother!

* The viewers laugh. *

Old Lady – That's a shame...grany's got some things she could teach you. (winks)

Shawn – Ew!


* Shawn looks around for Hannah but she's still not seen anywhere. *

Shawn – (singing) It's undeniable... that we should be together...
It's unbelievable how I used to say that I'd fall never
The basis is need to know, if you don't know just how I feel,
Then let me show you now that I'm for real...
If all things in time, time will reveal...

One... you're like a dream come true...
Two... just wanna be with you...
Three... girl it's plain to see... that your the only one for me...
Four... repeat steps one through three...
Five... make you fall in love with me...
If ever I believe my work is done... then I start Back at One

Hannah – Shawn????

* Shawn looks down to see that Hannah is standing in front of him. He drops down from the counter. There is a large group of people just staring at them. *

Hannah – What are you doing outside of sound tracking a flight to Paris?

Shawn – Hannah...I don't know. I had 25 minutes to think of what to say to you and for whatever reason all I could think of was Boys 2 Men and Brian McKnight.

Hannah – So when you think about me you think of a bunch of black guys?

* The viewers laugh. *

Shawn – (laughs) No...I...Hannah you can't leave. I know that it took me forever but I'm here right now and I'm hoping that I love you isn't coming too late.

Hannah – What?

Shawn – I love you Hannah...tell me that it's not too late.

Hannah – Shawn I...

Shawn – Hannah....

* Shawn gets down on one knee. *

Shawn – Will you marry me...again.

* Right then security tackles Shawn as the viewers laugh. They hold him up as Hannah is holding her mouth with her hands. Right then the old lady from before starts slapping the guards with her purse. *

Old Lady – Let him go! Let him go!

Crowd – Yeah, let him go!

* The whole crowd starts throwing things at the security guards until they let him go. Shawn goes back up to Hannah. *

Old Lady – Go on honey...kiss him already. Or I will.

Hannah – (smiles) Ok...

* Hannah and Shawn kiss as the airport crowd has begun slow clapping as they kiss. *

Hannah – You had me when you counted to five.

Shawn – Haha, good because I was prepared to go to ten but didn't wanna seem too needy.

* The viewers laugh as Hannah and Shawn kiss again as the rest of “Back at One” by Brian McKnight plays while the credits begin to roll. *

Back to Reality

* Shawn is seen sitting on his bed like he was before. He now however has some papers in his hands. His head is hanging low as he looks at them. They are divorce papers that he has received recently with Hannah's signature already on them. He has a pen in his hand and looks at them closer as if to think that he can change them with his mind. He clicks the pen and touches it to the paper but is unable to sign it. He sighs and clicks the pen again before tossing it to the side and putting the divorce papers back into the envelope and placing them under his bed where they won't be found. *

Shawn – Happily ever after only exists in movies...

* He grabs his beer and takes a drink before leaving the bus to rejoin the party. *

* The scene shows Shawn Winters in front of an SCW logo looking right at the camera. He has a massive dip in his lower lip and an empty water bottle in hand. *

Shawn – Shilo there is a certain perception of the two of us. You are expected to be fun and whacky and maybe sometimes entertaining. I am expected to be an asshole and a complete douche-bag when it comes down to it. Now, don't take your stupid moniker to heart. You're not entertainment so lets get that straight and throw it out the bag shall we? What I'm trying to say is that you and I...we have a story that's already been told 100 times prior. The under dog vs the favorite? David vs Goliath? Well to make you feel better you are the underdog and the David in this story. Despite being World Champion and US Champion you are in no way the favorite over me. Now hang on kids...any of you that feel like Shilo is your hero wait just one second because the outcome will not be similar to that of David from the Bible. I just like to use references so people don't feel so dumb when I talk. The fact is, the only way you're entertaining anyone is when you're in the ring with me. (smirks)

I'm not going to lie Shilo I laugh at you...I laugh at everything you do, it's entertaining, but not the type of entertainment that you're looking for. You're like a college drinking game. When you come on tv every college student is ready to drink when you say or do anything stupid. I just watched the last Breakdown and I'm not going to lie, I was fucking hammered off of you! You can't sit there and listen to one of your promos without passing out. Turns out Shilo your fan base isn't just kids afraid of dying, they're college kids capitalizing on your stupidity.

Shilo we get it...according to you, you are entertaining, you preach it like it's a sermon against abortion. You stand and you preach as if you need to convince somebody of something. Well Shilo you know what? You've convinced me. You've convinced me that you couldn't tell what entertaining was if it unloaded right on your face. You have this perception of entertainment much like Saturday Night Live does. Sure, maybe it was good in the 80's and the 90's but what they fail to realize is that people's ideas change. People's perception of entertainment changes. Eventually you've got to get with the times and Shilo I'm afraid you're going to be left behind while all the rest of us seemingly hold a distant memory of who you were.

I have been where you are, I really have. It's in a dark place that I don't like to talk about but I was there. You're the fan favorite, you're the hero, the one people want to see triumph and I'm the evil bad guy, the person everyone wants to hate, the person people want to see lose. Let me learn you something I said, I've been in your shoes. I faced Chad Evans in a match that saw me as the fan favorite, I was the one that everyone wanted to see triumph. Want to know something? I lost because I felt like I needed to provide them with something that was impossible to provide. it or not you are in the same boat. These fans have such a strangle hold on you that it's impossible to get loose. They have certain unreal expectations of athletes like us and it's impossible to live up to them. I broke my back and took away two years of my career trying to do it. You're slowly going down the same path.

* Shawn looks into the camera, spits into his empty water bottle and smiles a bit. *

Shawn – You live in this Narnia world that in all honesty is kind of cute. Sure you're 5 and your only friend is a talking lion, I get it. Do you know what I did when I was a kid? I dressed up as SpiderMan and tried to climb walls. You know what happened? I grew up. I'm no longer SpiderMan and yet here you are still pretending that you're something you're not. Shilo...let me paint you a picture real are a fake! You paint your face in order to hide from your own identity. You clearly hate being yourself so damn much that you've tried to turn yourself into somebody that you can live with being. Somebody that feels accepted by the masses. Somebody that for the first time in their lives feels a sense of belonging. A large audience can provide that but in the end you're the one that has to go home. You're the one that has to take that make up off and look at yourself in the mirror.

* Shawn runs his hands through his hair before spitting into a bottle. *

Shawn – Hearing those fans roar at the sound of your music. Feeling that electricity flowing through your bones. It's like a drug Shilo and you're flat out addicted at this point. This is coming from a guy that knows a few things about drugs and addiction. I am addicted to a certain drug called “Shawn Winters” and it is the greatest high that you could ever imagine. If you didn't understand what I just said I'll clear it up for you, I'm addicted to being me. Now being the glorious me that I am I feel obligated to try and help you recover from this addiction. Go ahead and call me Dr. Drew because I am about to let you in on a little secret.

Shilo I want you to learn something. Those fans out there that support you? That cheer you? That buy your cheap merchandise and bring in signs with your catch phrases and tours? They're all going to abandon you at some point. You are a fad Shilo. You go out and you bleed for people that in the end will do nothing but disappoint you. They will pay you for sex and you'll be lucky to be left on dry land with a piece of clothing. You're a toy to them Shilo, nothing more than an object that they feel they own because you're there doing everything that they wish. Do you know what happens to toys? They either get out grown or they get broken. Look at you now, you're broken. I have watched as you have gone above and beyond even your own talents in order to appease those people and in doing so you have defended your titles and you have injured your leg putting a giant hampering on your chances of retaining at Rise to Greatness. That bulls eye that's been on your back since being SCW Champion is now on your leg and I'll tell you right now...I'm an excellent shot. You are going down a dark path that will eventually leave you hating yourself and blaming the fans for giving up on you but the truth is, by giving in to each and everyone of their demands, you've given up on yourself. Anything that you had going for you as an individual has been stripped. You're not original, not anymore. You're just another drone walking out from behind the curtains getting cheers from fans that are just waiting for the new model. You're a like a phone craze that everyone gets only to dump before a new one comes out. So before you rant and rave about how selfish I am and I only do things for my own gain, look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, whose truly getting joy out of it? It sure as hell isn't you because last time I checked, being told what to do by a large mass of people that don't know what they want from a day to day basis isn't the key to happiness. Your fate isn't in your own hands anymore Shilo, it's in theirs. What are you going to try and do next to wow the crowd? What are you going to do to get them on their feet clapping their nacho cheese filled hands and scream: “NECRO!”? Are you going to break your back? Are you going to break your neck? Are you going to die for their pleasure? You better be prepared to because then and only then will what you preach have any warrant.

At this point Shilo do you even have a mind of your own? Excuse me for one second.

* Shawn pulls out his phone pretending to make a call. *

Shawn – Hi, Leg Warehouse? Yeah, I was wondering if you had a leg for my friend Shilo to stand on? No, you don't have a leg for Shilo to stand on? Alright, thank you.

* Shawn then hangs up the phone with a smile on his face. *

Shawn – See what I'm getting at Shilo? Your talent is withering away because of the demands of people who don't give a damn about you. Not only do you not have a leg to stand on, you've practically broken one. Ya see Shilo, I'm a man willing to admit certain things and I can admit that you are talented. Some may argue that you're more talented than I am. But you know what? Matches aren't won on paper. Matches are won through hard work, determination, heart, and ability. Do you think you're going to be able to stand up against me and win in those categories when you've got the weight of the entire arena on your shoulders? Hell it sounds to me like you'll be an easy pin with all that weight holding you down.

Now I'm sure you're thinking that I don't know what I'm talking about. “Holding me down? I'm the World Heavyweight Champion and the United States Champion, I'm on the top of the world about to main event Rise to Greatness, nothing is holding me down.” And I'll admit that you have the right to think that way Shilo but me? I'm a realist. I live in the real world it's only time until that weight becomes too much for you to handle. The best of em have crumbled under that weight and that includes people like CHBK. For you to reach your true potential you'll need to go out and tell each and everyone of those fans to shove it because you're tired. You're tired of breaking your body for them, you're tired of being at their beck and call, you're tired of putting their needs and wants ahead of yours. It's bound to happen Shilo and without it and without a healthy leg, I'll be honest your chances of walking out World Heavyweight Champion at Rise to Greatness are looking slimmer by the minute. But hey, all won't be lost. You'll still have that US title to defend ruthlessly and defiantly for each one of those fans cheering your name. But it won't be the World Heavyweight Championship now will it? (smirks) When I defeat you at Rise to Greatness, Shilo...the decent into regret and resentment will begin and you will hold each one of those people responsible. I'm not a bad guy Shilo despite what people may say about me. I'm simply trying to paint you a picture of your future. One that you can embrace sooner than later or one that you can ignore until it eats away at you until you are a shell of a man.

You and I haven't crossed paths until now because you simply have something that I want. If it wasn't for that World Championship over your shoulder I'm sure we'd have just passed each other in the hall way without even a glimpse. But that's not the case is it? You've got what I want and when it comes right down to it, at the risk of sounding like a rich tycoons daughter, I always get what I want. The clock is ticking on your little fairy tale Shilo, sure it was good while it lasted but your fairy tale, won't have a happy ending. Happy endings only exist in movies.

* Shawn winks into the camera before standing up as the SCW Logo flashes before fading to black. *
