A blaring horn pierces through the arena signifying the start of “Forever” by Drake as well as the arrival of Triple T. He steps out onto the state with a serious look on his face, trying to hold his head high. The T-Unit begins to chant “TRIPLE T, TRIPLE T” which causes him to smile a bit as he makes his way to the ring. He rolls under the bottom rope and once inside the ring asks for a mic. Soon the music dies down but the fans still continue to chant. The applauds and chants finally become too much for Tillman who begins to wave off the fans trying to get them to stop. Eventually they do and T lifts the mic to his mouth.
TRIPLE T: As much as I appreciate the love guys. I planned on coming here tonight with about 10 extra pounds of hardware over my shoulder but such is not the case. And for that T-Unit…I’m sorry.
T lowers the mic and shakes his head when suddenly the fans start to chant “Don’t be sorry” followed by a series of claps. T chuckles and begins to speak again.
TRIPLE T: Ok, ok settle down. I wanted to come out here tonight and tell you guys that I appreciate the emails, the tweets, all of it. You remind me that I’m down but not out. And that…
Suddenly Cherry Waves hits and out from the back comes the APEX Champion Nest. Nest comes out to a mixed reaction of cheers and boos from the loyal T-Unit. The Apex Champion doesn't look to the crowd, instead stands on top of the stage, glaring down at Triple T.
NEST: Terrence...Triple T my main man.
Nest smiles as he adjusts the title over his shoulders.
NEST: You have nothing. I truly mean nothing to be ashamed of. At 3rd Strike you may not have won the title, but we did what we promised all of these fans we would. For one, we stole the goddamn show. I'll tell you that. Not only that, but we kept the PRIDE of the Lion's Den away from Hana Song.
The crowd starts to boo at the mention of Song as Nest briefly looks out to the people before turning his attention back to the ring.
NEST: There's absolutely no need for you to be out here, trying to justify anything to these people. I mean no disrespect by that, of course. You no longer have anything to prove to anyone, including me. Week after week, whether your hand is raised or it isn't, you come in with a smile and leave with one. Dude you bust your ass around here, and everyone knows that. Let's not forget the fact that you kicked off FGA's Four Year Anniversary Show Skyfalling the daylights out of Johnny Shift. No it wasn't on the network but the internet was buzzing and that seems to be one of the only things that matters...so there you have it.
Nest strokes his beard.
NEST: Point is, I'm going to fulfill the promise I made to you because I'm a man of my word. You deserve a chance to hold this Apex Championship without the interruptions of any snakes, princesses, butchers or even germans. I'm giving you one last chance to face me because there's no other viable contenders with the heart and drive that you have.
The crowd erupts in cheers. Triple T nods with a smile on his face.
TRIPLE T: Nest...I appreciate it man. And I appreciate the opportunity. And congratulations on the win. You my friend are a true champion and a true warrior. But the fact remains if I'm going to say that I want to be the best then I have to beat the best...and right now...that my man is you. So you and me one on one the way it was suppose to be...the way it should be...the way it has to be. The two biggest names in the company tearing the house down yet again. Holla at ya boy!
With that the two men shake hands in the center of the ring to the roar of the fans in attendance. They soon turn to the crowd hyping them up before leaving the ring together.
