I just got started on a Daniel Bryan/Chris Benoit feud and considering I'm not getting that much cut scenes with the two, I'm just making it all up and pretending they had segments related to their feud and shit.
Okay so, I set up a fatal 4 way elimination match - Christian vs Daniel Bryan vs Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit - and of course, in my head I was like "WAIT A MINUTE, maybe I could try and have Benoit/Bryan be the last two men remaining and just eliminate Christian, then Jericho, but possibly not make those two look bad!" and then I just winged it, because I play by myself and so I try to make sure the AI doesn't fuck up and eliminate Bryan, and then as soon as it was just Benoit/Bryan.. the match got INTENSE AND EPIC AS FUCK. I think they fought for about close to 25 minutes, not sure, all I know is they fought each other for a while. I played as Benoit, I got in maybe 3 Yes Locks and was so close to tapping, of course I stalled and forced myself into staying in the Yes Lock for psychology purposes and also to make the match more realistic because it makes no sense for me to be in it for 15-10 seconds when in real life, in a huge technical match like this, especially if Benoit was hurt, he'd be in that submission for a while! But of course I got Bryan in the crossface 3 or 4 times and the 4th time he finally tapped out after being in the submission for.. maybe.. maybe 30-40 seconds? I know that's still short but considering this is a video game and it kinda've automatically makes the guy get out of it if he's in it for a certain long amount of time, it's the best I could do, so pretend he was in that hold for a long ass time lol anyways, Bryan was really close to the ropes but then I pressed A really fast as if my life depended on it so that way it looked like "Oh my god, Bryan's in so much pain, he's very close to the ropes but he's in too much pain at the point where he taps out" kinda've thing, you know what I mean? And so the match ended, Benoit won, sadly there was no cut scene but I invisioned it in my head where both of them are in the ring laying down as if they're dead and they eventually get back up, Bryan and Benoit look at each other doing the classic stare-down thing, Benoit offers his hand for a hand shake, Bryan looks like he's gonna shake his hand, but doesn't and nods his head no and as he's about to leave the ring he says "THAT, WAS A FLUKE! I KNOW I CAN BEAT YOU, I KNOW I CAN MAKE YOU TAP BECAUSE I AM ONE OF THE BEST WRESTLERS TODAY, YOU ARE THE PAST, I AM THE FUTURE!" and walks away.
& due to the cut scenes being lackluster in this game when it comes to certain feuds I'm trying to do, there's been no cut scenes ever since that fatal 4 way elimination match so I just pretend in my head that they happen, anyways, the week after WWE Superstars, Bryan was watching a replay of the last few moments of the fatal 4 way where he tapped out, in his locker-room on the television, and he says "Damn it.." and then Josh Matthews comes in for the typical mini-interview segment and says "Daniel, considering how you tapped out to the Crossface from Chris Benoit, I think the WWE Universe wants to know your thoughts and how you feel after a week removed from that fantastic ending to the fatal 4 way elimination match where you and the WWE's Canadian Crippler had a classic bout?" Bryan says "... How do I feel, Josh? How do I feel?! How do you think I feel, did you NOT just see the replay?! I tapped out to the CROSSFACE and I am one of the best submission wrestlers in this business today and I tapped out to a man who doesn't know when to quit and realize that he's the past? Are you kidding me? Chris Benoit is a cheater and if he thinks that he's something special just because he made me tap out, he's got another thing coming to him, because this is not just a threat to Chris and this is not just a statement to Chris, this... is a promise.. Someway, somehow, and someday, eventually, The Canadian Crippler... will be crippled at the point where he can't even cripple anymore.. Now get out of my locker room." Then Bryan goes out to face (I think it was) Rey Mysterio, Rey and Bryan have a typical 10-12 minute TV match on Superstars, the fans chant "YOU TAPPED OUT!" and then they chant as he's doing those kicks he does "WE WANT BENOIT!", then Bryan yells at the end before he gets Rey into the Yes Lock "... THIS IS GONNA BE BENOIT!!" then Rey gets in the submission hold, taps out, etc.
Then Benoit has a match next, before that though, Matt Striker interviews him and asks "Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time.. Chris Benoit! *camera pans to Chris* Matt says "Now, as you hopefully heard earlier before his match, Daniel Bryan had quite alot to say about you and he also had a few things to say regarding last week's ending with you and him in the fata--" Benoit interrupts and says.. "I know, I know.. I saw it. I saw the replay. I heard what he said, I heard that he said that he thinks he's the best and how he's better than me and how I apparently cheated and how he's gonna eventually get me or something.. Well I have a message for Goat Face.. Listen, kid. You have to remember that I said good things about you years ago before you even got to the WWE, I saw you on the independent circut, I thought you were awesome, I and I still think you are because I actually respect good technical wrestling and wrestling in general.. But.. I don't like when people say I cheat in my matches, I don't like when people insult me and say lies about me and if you're gonna open up your goat face mouth again about me in a bad way, I'll teach you a lesson because I actually have some respect unlike you, Daniel. That's all I have to say, because I have a match up next" Benoit daces, I think it was The Miz, like the Bryan/Rey match I was mainly stalling and did some decent spots in the match, Miz got the SCF on me but I kicked out at 2, crossface, over.
Now, Bryan and Kane are the tag team champions in my Universe Mode so I'm basically trying to get some random tag team to beat them for the titles so they can part ways and then I can really get this Benoit/Bryan feud going even more because now I'm not doing shit with the feud. Just bringing dream feuds/matches to life in a video game, derp.
