COMMERCIAL: THE BATTLE FOR PRIME PT. 1
A close up camera shot of Alexei Ruslan, sitting in a chair in front of a gray backdrop. He smiles warmly.
Alexei Ruslan: Hello there. My name is Alexei Ruslan and I have the honor of having Ivan Stanislav here with me today, soon to be Universal Champion of PRIME.
The camera pans to reveal Stanislav, sitting in a wholly undersized chair. He nods quietly.
Alexei Ruslan: Comrade Stanislav, this is just one of several small vignettes that will be held to more fully show the importance of this “Battle for PRIME” as I have begun to call it. Tell me. Why is this match against Brandon Youngblood so important?
Stanislav smiles and rubs his haggard beard, which scritch-scratches audibly.
Ivan Stanislav: First of all, thank you Alexei for having me. It is a true honor to sit here with you and speak to my many PRIME fans. Why is this match so important? Where do I even start? Perhaps I should first discuss courage. It takes a courageous man to stand up for himself, does it not? And yet, Brandon Youngblood hides behind his vast number of sycophants. Members of roster who seem to ignore his threatening ways, his repulsive behavior, and his conduct, which screams his believe that he is simply better than everyone else.
Stanislav looks at the camera.
Ivan Stanislav: It is repugnant, and below the honor of PRIME Universal Championship. Why, we saw earlier how he so callously tossed Universal Championship on the floor, did we not? He cares not for PRIME. Nor does he care for the championship. Like most capitalists, he thinks only of himself.
Ivan shakes his head with disgust but somehow, manages to continue.
Ivan Stanislav: This is a man who did not succeed in defending PRIME’s honor at PWA-01, did he? Like the coward that he is, Brandon Youngblood looks out only for himself and no one else. Which is why, come UltraViolence, I will not only revel in showing Youngblood where he stands in the “pecking order” of PRIME, but also bring a sense of honor and courage to the Universal Title, which has not been seen since PRIME has returned.
Ruslan smiles and the camera turns to him.
Alexei Ruslan: Thank you for that thrilling speech, Praporshchik. I know I echo the sentiments of all when I say that I feel heartened by your positive attempts to better PRIME. Folks, thank you for your time. This concludes our first of many intimate looks into the importance of this pivotal upcoming match.
