It's night-time on the Sydney waterfront. A series of landmarks are shown in rapid succession; the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, and Luna Park. Nathan Paradine is shown walking along the waterfront, dressed casually in jeans and a t-shirt, his hands on his pockets and his sunglasses reflecting the city lights. He pauses at a railing and looks out over the black water, watching a boat slowly idle past.
Paradine: "This week will be a moment years in the making. Forget the CWF, forget the Paramount Grand Prix, forget about everything to do with Evolution... this Friday night, Nathan Paradine will once again step into a Hostility ring to compete."
The Australian Submission Machine is looking solemn as he speaks, his attentioned focused entirely on the water. Many sides of Paradine have been shown over the past week, both serious and comedic. He sniffs and spits into the water.
Paradine: "Over the last week I have been conducting a search for my missing tag team partner, Tobias Devereaux. It has been rather fruitless, and now I find myself teaming with a new partner; someone I've never met before, but united with in a common goal; we both bleed Hostility, and we both want to take The Reason down a peg or two."
Paradine removes his sunglasses, revealing a minor black eye he's sporting after his bout with Silas Artoria.
Paradine: "Twice in a week I will compete, not only for the love of competition but because I am a man torn between two people; my contract with Jon Stewart on one side, and my contract with Christopher St. James on the other. Some people might insinuate that might lead to divided loyalties when it comes to a match like this, but I can assure you it couldn't be further from the truth. I wrestle for the CWF because I love the sport. I wrestle for Hostility because I am Hostility, and Hostility is me; a place when the strong thrive and the weak are weeded out."
Paradine places the sunglasses back on his face and smirks.
Paradine: "I will watch you bleed, Jaiden. I will watch the other men of The Reason bleed. And when you're laying in the middle of that ring, beaten, broken and hopefully regretting the day you decided to try and take Hostility down, I hope you realize something. I hope you realize that any attempt to tarnish the name of Hostility will always result in failure, as long as I have breath in my body and the Hostile Elite behind me."
Paradine smirks, and thumbs his nose before walking off-camera. End scene.
