FADE IN to a busy Sydney cafe. We see cooks sling together short orders, servers carrying plates to their hungry customers.
One server drops off a spot of tea to a table. As she moves on to the next table, we see the tea is for CWF competitor "Go-Go" Moe Davis.
He speaks candidly with us,
That was the first time I saw him hit my mother. And it was the last time I ever saw him.
Moe stirs honey into his tea.
I learned two things from that. One...never hit a woman, no matter how angry you are. Two...always stand up for yourself. And now I have to put those two lessons to the test. This Tuesday at Evolution, CWF is telling me I have to wrestle a woman...Autumn Raven.
Moe takes a sip of tea.
I'm all for equal rights, but I don't know if that counts for beatdowns in the ring, moe.
Moe takes tea bag out of his cup, places it on the saucer.
When you think about it, it's a lose-lose situation for me. If I win, it's no big deal 'cause I just beat a woman. But if I lose, it's going to be a red mark on my career forever.
Moe lets out a deep sigh.
I've had to prove myself my whole life. When I first started training in the martial arts, I had a lot of guys try to test me, just because of my background. I PASSED. ALL. THOSE. TESTS. With these...
Moe holds up his two fists.
Now, I feel like CWF is testing me again by making this match, even though I was successful in my debut. Looks like I'm going to have to prove myself all over. But is it worth fighting a woman? I don't know.
Moe nervously plays with his spoon.
A server drops a dish in the back of the restaurant. Some customers applaud sarcastically.
Moe's server approaches.
Have you decided?
Moe looks up at her slowly.
