Tak vs Profiteer
TAK is a talker – always has been, always will be. He uses words like weapons against his opponents, chipping away at their confidence and self-esteem, long before any lock up. Sometimes it works – other times, his mouth gets him into trouble!
Opening during a bodyweight workout, TAK pranks his training partner, Profiteer, who promptly declares he’s had enough of TAK’s training. Like the bully in a Charles Atlas commercial, Profiteer kicks TAK over onto the mat, belittling the Thunder’s Arena veteran, saying he’s just a lightweight. Thing is, if you start trashing TAK, you’re gonna get it back tenfold! Profiteer learns quickly that it’s hard to be arrogant and cocky when you can’t get a word in edgeways! TAK gets in his face, proclaiming the mat to be his and that he’s gonna kick Profiteer’s ass! Fighting words from the smaller wrestler, but anyone who knows TAK, knows that he can back it up! “Let’s make this a friendly match-up, just because it’s your first time with me” Could Profiteer be any more cocky??!!
The two men lock up and TAK gets his first taste of what he’s up against. With a skill that belies his rookie status, Profiteer blocks a single-leg takedown attempt and traps TAK, giving him a couple of jabs to the ribs. Letting TAK go, Profiteer says “I was gonna go easy on you, but hey – if you want me go full throttle…” This guy’s arrogance is off the scale! They lock up for a test of strength, chest-to-chest, with neither backing down. Profiteer drops his shoulder and lifts TAK over, whilst they’re still locked up! Slamming him back down, Profiteer applies a tight arm-bar to the struggling TAK. “Do you want me to break your arm? I could snap it off right now…” “If you break my arm, I won’t be able to help your Mom out tomorrow night!” Seriously, TAK’s mouth is gonna be the death of him! “You wanna talk about my Mom?” as Profiteer wraps his arm around TAK’s neck, dragging him up and driving him back to the mat.
The two lock up again, this time with TAK getting the upper hand, lifting the rookie over his shoulder in a fireman’s carry. Hanging precariously upside down, Profiteer hacks at the knees of TAK, who collapses to the mat! Draping his hapless ‘teacher’ over his knee, Profiteer gets in a few shots to TAK’s abs before flexing over him. “I like to show off man, just look at this” before he drops TAK to the mat and leg drops him! An elbow drop to his back has TAK groaning in pain! Profiteer drags TAK’s head between his legs and pulls him up into a perfectly-executed over-the-shoulder backbreaker, throwing in a bicep flex, just because he can! A seated-suplex and TAK is lying on the mat, wondering what happened?! “You done yet?” asks the smug ‘rookie’.
Circling the prone form of TAK, Profiteer drops a fist into his abs, before dragging him back up straight into a shoulder barge, winding the Kid. Three shoulder scoops leave TAK wondering which way is up, a confusion not helped by the crushing rear bearhug he receives from his aggressor! TAK is in serious trouble, beginning to realise he might have bitten off far more than he can chew…
Profiteer’s ego is going through the roof, referring to himself as the Prophet and telling the viewers (and TAK) why he’s better than him – “I got the body, I’m winning, I make more money than you and man, I’m good looking!” Pulling TAK up, he promptly knees him in the midsection. “I’m psyched, I thought you guys liked this Kid” Profiteer addresses the camera “I’m gonna be your new fan favourite. I know I’m a little cocky, but you’ll learn to like me.” Using Profiteer’s monologue as a distraction, TAK scoops him up and drops him on his head! Taking the momentum, TAK traps Profiteers head in his legs and drops back into a killer head scissors! Realising a submission’s not coming, TAK lets him up. The atmosphere has changed, no longer laughing and joking. “I’m sick of your attitude ‘bro’” “You know what?” says Profiteer “It’s time to finish this”. One wrestler asks the camera “You guys want me to finish him?” The final, brutally effective hold has one wrestler screaming out his submission, no doubt as to the winner! A definite and dominant ending to a terrific match!
