*On Monday Night Raw, we see Crulex standing in the hallway holding the TWF World Heavyweight Championship, talking to someone in the shadowy corner of the back with a look of amusement spread on his face. As the shadowy person speaks, his voices sounds distorted and low.*
????: So, did you see the little show I put on last week?
Crulex: Oh yes, I did see what youmanaged todoon Monday. I'm impressed. Not many can pull off what you did. So, what are you planning to do now?
????: Push buttons. It's what I do. You know that better than anyone.
Crulex: I do. Just make sure it's worth it. I know what he is like from what I've seen. As good as you are,will be put to the test. But remember, this is a test run. If we are successful, nothing will ever be the same again.
????: I understand that.But why are we taking so long with this? After what happened, are you really that concerned? We are the two best wrestlers in the TWF, and we've proven it over and over. They don't stand a chance......especially if we lose control......
Crulex: Patience is key, especially in such a high risk operation. You have your opponents, and I have mine. Our main targets will get what they deserve in due time. After all, this may be my last shot and your only shot, and I won't take any chances for flukes.
????: I'm not a patient man, Crulex. After all these years, you know that. I'll wait as long as I have to, but you better be ready to pull the trigger when I say so.
Crulex: No agruements with me. Just be sure you are ready when you call me, otherwise this will all be for nothing. You're the boss of this little venture. Always have been, always will be. But this is just as high profile for me as it is for you. Everything we have ever done is on the line for this. Our legacy. Our history. Our last step in being the best, it all boils down to one match. So when you say that it's time, I'll be right beside you. But I want your A game.
????: And I expect the same from you.
Crulex: If the last few months have meant anything, my A game is just as high as yours. So, do we have an understanding?
????: You are lucky that I'm in a good mood, because I don't like your tone.
Crulex: Hey, no disrespect, I just want to make sure we are on the same page.
????: Good. Now, if you don't mind, I have a bug to squash.
Crulex: Go for it. I have my own prey.
*The shadowy figure slips out through a back door to the stairway as Crulex begins walking the other way down the hall. Crulex gets to the edge of the hallway when he's stopped by Josh Matthews.*
Josh: Crulex, can we get a comment on who you were justtalking to?
Crulex: If you want to live, you'll forget about it. In other words, no comment.
Josh: Does this have anything to do with your match with JandSman at TLC?
Crulex: Are you deaf or just stupid? I'm not talking about it anymore, so don't ask. But on the topic of JandSman, there is nothing to say. He's always been a thorn that appears when he finds an opportunity to do so, and at one time, I considered him the most likely to beat me. But after putting an end to Darkside and stopping the steamroller known as Frieza, JandSman is not the threat he once was and I will defeat him, just like I did this past summer.
Josh: But what about the fact that he outranks you, so any form of no contest will lead to you losing the championship unlike the other two fights?
Crulex: One, I hate that. I really do. I would rather lose than get another roll-up victory (tie). Next time I put someone into the Chaos Theory, I'm aimming to break their neck. That'll keep them on the mat. And two, I'm not worried about that. JandSman is not in his right mind. Running around acting like a monster. Or a superhero. Or an enlighted budda monk of scholarship. I beat JandSman when he had his mind. What can he do to me now that he's lost it? Or at least, that's what he wants us to think. But I don't buy it. I think JandSman's issues are as real as IED. JandSman can try all he wants to get in my head, but in the end, history will repeat itself as it always does. JandSman, you call me a villian. But that is a bit far. Dark, evil, vile, sure, but a villian? No......not yet. Not until TLC. I'll put it in terms you'll understand: At TLC, you'll see what happens when a split personality J meets a monsterous C with a weapon in his hands. I'm going to crack your skull so hard thatif anything really iswrong with your brain, itwill be fixed. See you soon, GM.
*Crulex smirks at Josh and pushes past him as Raw continues on.*
