MWT 2007: Misting 11: Invasion Of The WWE (Ch. 4 - slash)
Wed May 18, 2011 12:33am

Our heroes renter the theater and resume their seats. The fan fic started up again.

- Chapter 1:

This nightmare started…for me it started…back in 2006. The exact date was Saturday, June 3, 2006. -

Shawn: (to Bret) What did you do on June 3, 2006?

Bret: (to Shawn) Do you remember what you did on June 3, 2006?

- I remember it all too well.

At that time, I was still living in Italy with my second wife Cinzia. Cinzia had long dark hair, light blue eyes that contrasted well with her complexion, and a thick Italian accent. -

Bret: Why couldn't the author have left my wife out of this?

Hunter: Now you know what it feels like? (as his own wife had been used in a bad fic)

- I loved her very much. -

Sean: By the sound of that line Bret, I'd say that by the end of this story, she becomes your ex-wife.

Bret: I'm going to have a very big problem with this author if she tells me that I left Cinzia for Shawn.

Shawn: Thanks a lot. You think I want to be shacking up with you in Canada of all places.

- Living in Italy was not always easy. I wasn't fluent in the language and kept Cinzia by me when we went to places where people spoke very little English. I missed Canada…but Cinzia wouldn't live there. -

Bret: (sinks down in his seat as he begins to feel that the last few lines were an all too accurate description of his life with Cinzia)

- Really wanting this marriage to work, where my first hadn't, I did a lot of compromising. -

Shawn: Doesn't sound like he compromised much with me.

Bret: What's that supposed to mean?

Shawn: I would never live in Canada either.

Hunter: (looks at Shawn with concern)

- I did a lot of thinking too. I had thoughts, many of which I kept from Cinzia, or they would have broken her heart. -

Sean: I can guess what those thoughts were. (Bret looks at him)

- I was thinking these thoughts, as I sat in my office, when my phone rang at approximately 11:30 in the morning.

I answered it, "Hello?" -

Sean: (attempting to disguise his voice) What's your favorite scary movie?

- "Hi…Bret," said a familiar voice.

"Hey, Mark," I said, smiling. I was happy to hear a friend's voice. -

Hunter: Not too many people are happy when they hear The Undertaker's voice.

Bret: The Undertaker doesn't really like you either Hunter.

Hunter: What?

- Mark Calaway – known to wrestling fans as The Undertaker – was a good friend; one of the few from WWE that I still talked to with any regularity. -

Bret: Well, he used to be. (considering now that Bret was living three men from the company)

- It was people like him that kept me focused on what was good about my WWE career – and there was a lot – versus what was bad. -

Shawn: Which Bret chose to focus on a lot.

Bret: Don't help the author.

- "How are you doing?" I asked.

"Okay," something in Mark's voice told me that he was less than okay. -

Hunter: (to Bret) You can actually hear expression in The Undertaker's voice?

Bret: The more expression, the more he likes you. He really doesn't like you.

Hunter: What did I do to him? (Bret shrugs)

- "What's up?" I asked. Thing with Mark was that he very rarely expressed his true feelings. I was, and still am, the same way. -

Bret: That is true. It's why he and I got along so well.

- We're just two lone wolves. The way to deal with us is to just wait, and when we're ready, we let it out. -

Sean: And when they do, watch out. (Bret looks at him) You know I'm right about that.

- "Not much," Mark replied. Then he was quiet.

I was actually getting a little concerned. I doubted Mark was paying so much money to call me and not talk to me. -

Bret: The author just wants to draw this conversation out like she did the news article, doesn't she? (the others nod their heads in agreement)

- "Mark, you still there?" I prodded.

"Yeah, I'm here," said Mark, "I'm glad you're there." -

Shawn: (continuing the story) And that's when I hung up the phone.

Bret: I would not.

- I wasn't sure what he meant. I said, "Of course, I'm here. Now, what can I do for you?" All right, I knew what I'd said to myself earlier, but some wolves needed to be pushed too. -

Shawn: Unfortunately, when pushed, wolves tend to attack.

Bret: You would know. (Shawn looks at him)

- "Bret," he began, "I have a favor to ask you…a big one." -

All: Uh oh.

- "Okay, anything. You name it," I replied. -

Shawn: (to Bret) You deserve anything you get now Bret.

- I would do anything for Mark. He'd been there for me enough times in the past. -

Bret: And that last statement's true, but did I have to say anything?

- "Would you come to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 5th?" he asked. -

Hunter: Not if Bret realizes that that's where RAW took place.

- "Um…Mark, June 5th is a Monday." I suddenly didn't like this conversation. -

Bret: I think I realized it.

- "Yeah, I know," he said, "Will you come?"

"You're not asking me to come to RAW, are you?" I asked. -

Shawn: (to Bret) You did say anything.

- "I told you I was asking for a big favor," he said.

"I didn't think it was that big," I said. Mark knew my feelings about WWE. -

Shawn: (to Bret) The whole world knows your feelings on WWE.

- "Why in the world would you ask me?" I asked. -

Sean: You know Bret, the only reason anyone would ask you to RAW is if something out of this world occurred.

Bret: So what's Vince's excuse for asking?

Sean: His desire for out-of-this-world ratings.

- "Because I trust you," and then he said what I didn't understand at the time, "And I really need someone I can trust." -

Shawn: There's that trust thing again.

- "What do you mean, need someone you can trust?"

"I'd rather not tell you over the phone," he said, -

Hunter: I never thought that I would see the day that The Undertaker was paranoid.

- "Please, Bret."

I know now that there was fear and desperation in that voice. -

Hunter: It's a side of The Undertaker I've never seen before.

- "Okay, Mark, I'll be there." -

Bret: Damn me.

- "Thank you," Mark said.

"You'd just better not leave my side the whole time I'm there," I told him.

"You can bet on that," he said. -

Shawn: Aw, Bret needs a bodyguard to face the WWE.

Bret: I need a body probably to protect you from me. We weren't friends in 2006.

Shawn: Well, something has to change. You marry me by 2011. (Bret is about to comment)

Sean: At this rate, let's hope we make it to 2011.

- Then he said, "See you soon," and hung up.

After hanging up on my end, I went and told Cinzia what was going on. -

Bret: And hoped that she would talk me out of going.

- I was surprised when she told me to book two flights to the States, as she rarely accompanied me when I traveled out of Italy. -

Bret: Damn again.

- At the time, I was glad she was coming along. I hadn't liked my conversation with Mark. Of course, in retrospect, that should have been reason for me to not have taken Cinzia along. -

Shawn: They say hindsight is 20/20.

- Chapter 2: -

Sean: I hope the mood of this story picks up. No offense Bret, but you're kind of depressing me.

Bret: It's not my fault; it's the author's.

Sean: Who's writing through you.

Bret: It's still the author's fault.

Hunter: Not to interrupt…

Bret & Sean: Too late.

Hunter: That was the end of chapter 1, right?

Shawn: Right.

Hunter: And Vince said that we could go to bed after reading it, right?

Shawn: Right.

Hunter: Then what are we still doing here?

Shawn: Good point.

Hunter: Let's go then.

Bret: Good night, everybody.

End of Chapter 4 (of my fic)
