Backstage at the studio.
Mushigihara stares out towards the ring, a broken and defeated man. Having lost the tag team titles at the end of the year, he clenched his jaw in preparation for the battle ahead with Harry Chest. A chance to take down Classic’s favorite superhero, a chance to begin the path of redemption…
Eddie Dante: You know what you must do.
A chance to get his overbearing manager off his back.
Eddie Dante delivers a jolting slap to the Emperor’s back, as opposed to a friendly pat to show support. The massive warrior only looks on, tired and sore.
Eddie Dante: Your path to redemption begins today, Mushigihara.
Eddie Dante: OR ELSE.
Dante spins on his heel and saunters off, leaving Mushi alone, staring contemptuously in his direction.
