Bouncing back to the top is the key to victory. Dublin, Ireland. Tuesday 10th September. (On Camera)
Konrad has only just arrived in Dublin after doing a tag match in UGWC overnight as he got his private plane to fly straight to Dublin and got there in a few hours before he's facing against Phoenix LeStrange in the third qualifying match round. Things didn't go so smoothly for Konrad last time around because of his bruised ribs from the damage he got from Damian Angel in SCW. However, things can always turn around as he's standing outside of Dublin Castle. He begins to speak.
Konrad Raab: "I'm not ashamed to lose to someone who was clearly underrated in the tournament. I'm proud that my last opponent, Nathan Paradine got the win from me and stepped his game up to another level. I didn't underestimate him or anything of a sort, it was just he was able to expose my ribs pretty good and I tapped out cos of the amount of pain I was in."
Konrad nodded at what he said as a lot of people were going in and out of the castle as he hadn't done these videos for quite some time, but at the same time, it's all he had time for and he spoke about his opponent for this week, Phoenix LeStrange.
Konrad Raab: "Speaking of me needing to bounce back, my opponent needs a lot more work to do in the tournament, although I can't undermine on what she's possibly done in the wrestling business as I know for a fact, Phoenix has a ton of talent and can easily get me down, especially when it comes to my mentally on women who focus more about looks than wrestling skills, it has never been a strength of mine, although I've recently defeated Gabrielle Sinn twice from learning my past."
Konrad could never forget how much he embarrassed himself as he shook his head in disgust on the loss he had against Amanda Cortez in the past and had to be aware not to fall into that trap.
Konrad Raab: "While I cannot in any way rule her out as a threat because of the uncertainty that awaits for me, it doesn't mean I can't ignore the losses she's had against Zolton who quite frankly is a danger to all of us in this tournament, especially when I've lost to him in the past. Phoenix still has a lot to prove in this tournament to her wrestling company which is believed to be Trinity Wrestling. We've not really heard much if anything from you since you were replaced by someone in the tournament. We know what you can do in the tournament, we've seen the skills you produced against Zolton who's not the easiest guy to defeat in the ring."
Konrad knows this from his experience of fighting Zolton which he lost as he looks outside of the castle with his own eyes and sees how historical it was and Konrad loves knowing the history of castles like the Dublin one and looking at medieval things.
Konrad Raab: "I haven't got very much to say to Phoenix other than gaining in the fact she can wrestle. I won't trash her cos once again, she hasn't said or done anything wrong to get that treatment. I'm no longer afraid to be embraced to the darkness as SCW wrestlers would know from how I've been as it took me a long time to know we all have good and evil sides to all of us to have a balance in life. Being one of either can hold you back from success. I've had such a busy week last week with being named as the Outlast captain for UGWC PPV coming up and getting an SCW World title shot against Alistaire Allocco from selecting me so I've had no rest whatsoever."
Konrad takes a break from speaking as he takes a sip of water he received on the plane before he speaks for the last time.
Konrad Raab: "I hope you will use your darkness wrestling abilities than your sexual appeal because I'm interested even in you hurting me, especially I need to be ready for a hardcore title match soon in UGWC and I hope to hear from you as always, I'm looking forward to facing you in the ring and seeing what you got for me. I will do anything it takes to get the win tonight right here in Dublin, Ireland and all I will say since there's nothing else left to say is I wish you all the best because regardless of what you'll do, you'll prepare yourself to be Iceinated by The Iceman as I will pin you for the three count and have my hands raised above as the winner of the match because I will bounce back to capture the win. See you later."
Konrad leaves the castle and goes straight to the arena as he's only going to wrestle in Ireland before going back on his private plane and head off to Supreme Championship Wrestling Breakdown in Cleveland, Ohio.
