The lights then wentwhite and the whole arena became bright before it dim back to black once again. The pyro had shot off before the lights cut back on only to hear “The Second Coming” by CFO$ blast from the PA systems and to see Seth Rollins’ titan tron appear.
Seth Rollins then walked out with his arms extended but kept a mean mug on his face as the EBWF Universe had boo him. He then kept his arms extended as he walked onto the stage as he began to speak out. Seth Rollins had them out his hands on his jacket before putting one hand up into the air and turning it into a fist.
After he walked down the entrance ramp as he put his arms down being showered in boos. Wasting no time when he reached the ring and he decided to take the steel steps to climb into the ring. After making his way into the ring he walks over to the corner to grab a microphone to begin speaking.
Seth Rollins: Tonight you all get to see me go one on one with the Self Proclaimed “Best In The World” CM Punk, but don’t let that take your attention away from the fact that I was robbed of my shot at the Breakout Championship.
Seth Rollins had dropped the microphone for a while as he let the crowd ponder on his words.
Seth Rollins: Raven knew what was coming for him, he knew that the Messiah had plans to win that match and seek his faith for his actions. But Raven, you cannot stop what’s written in stone, you can’t stop what faith has on its way for you Raven. It’s inevitable, and at some point you have to meet the Messiah, because only then will your judgement be given to you, you can only run for so long.
Seth Rollins took another pause before speaking again.
Seth Rollins: But as for your follower James Ellsworth, he shall also seek his judgement. James I hope you’ve realized what’s in your future, I hope that you understand your every act will be remember-
Before Rollins could finish his last words CM Punk’s theme song began to blast through the arena as they get ready for their match next.

When Warfare returned from commercial the fans were buzzing when a few beats passed by with nothing to show for them. All of a sudden “Boo yah kah - boo yah Kah “ followed be the familiar theme of Rey Mysterio Jr. bellowed through the arena. Rey came out from the back he was in a light gray with red writing “619” hoodie and matching sweat pants. He had two platinum earrings on as well. The camera cut to the ring where two attractive Latina women were in the ring, there was a throne and a velvet red carpet in the ring as well. One of the two girls held a crown in her hand. Rey made his way into the ring, his hood was lightly over his fresh fade haircut. He was granted a mic as he looked at the two lovely ladies in the ring. The crowd greeted Rey with a mixed reaction, due to his mean street give no Fs attitude that he had portrayed as of late. Rey held the mic up to his mouth, as his hood now fell off his head.
Rey Mysterio Jr. : I told youuuuuu
The Crowd now was mostly booing the new King of the Ring.
Rey Mysterio Jr.: I told you all- and back at the beginning of this journey everyone thought me beating AJ Styles was impossible - me beating Aiden English- impossible.. me beating anyone just a couple months ago - seemed impossible, until I cut the cord with this entertain at all cost mentality that guys get into. I’m going to entertain- but for once I’m gonna let my work do that- NOT my persona. I don’t need a mask anymore because I’m no longer hiding! I’m not longer covering up who I am and what I’m about. Who I am - is Rey Mysterio Jr and what I’m about is becoming the next EBWF champion and the only one that should be hiding from anything or anyone is Randy Orton.
Rey began to pace.
Rey Mysterio Jr. : I am proud to have won King of the Ring - but I’m not even close to naive enough to think that any of you are truly happy for me. All of you still wish I was the old happy go lucky cartoon character - instead of the literal KING of this industry that stands before you now. Well I got some bad news - not only am I the King of EBWF - I will soon be it’s champion - because like it or not- I’m the best TALENT - that our business has ever seen. I’m not here to sell tickets or t shirts- I’m here to win matches and titles- I’m here to do the things I’m destined to do because the good lord blessed me with a gift others just don’t possess- and I’m done taking it for granted and simply going along for the ride. I’m done!
Rey was getting booed now as he angrily paced.
Rey Mysterio Jr: I’m the next champion of the EBWF the next face of this company - and I refuse to hide this face - from the world- I refuse to be masked and play a role that is anything other than myself - a role that’s anyone but Rey Jr. - because soon .. VERY soon - nobody in wrestling will want to be anyone more.. than me. So without further ado.. ladies.
Rey sat down on the throne and one of the women crowned him. He basked in the boos as he stood up. The other woman - had a cape that she took off the ring and draped it over Reys shoulders. He put his arms up and allowed the crowd to rain boos all over him. Both ladies kissed him on the cheek at the same time as Rey began to pose and celebrate becoming King. The camera zoomed in on him after a minute or so. He winked into it as his music hit once again. Arrogantly, Rey and the ladies exited the ring and made their way back up the ramp and through the curtain as Warfare went to commercial.
