//Heading out to the boonies of Tennessee. We’re going to be burying my grandfather’s ashes so won’t be back until Monday. Hoping to get signal at some point Sunday night so I can view the results.
The following interview has been conducted through Zoom
As per custom, Abi Rose appears on the computer screen; this time clad with one of the hottest selling items on the MHW Shopzone site, an El Diablo Blanco t-shirt. She welcomes us to today’s installment.
Abi Rose: Ladies and gentlemen, by now you know the deal but this isn’t just any installment of the Life and Times of El Diablo Blanco. No, today is a very special day as it is my final sit down with El D prior to his big match this Sunday at Game Over as he challenges for the MHW Ultimate Title against the War Queen Leah Aguero. I know as an investigative journalist I should remain impartial but after all this time sitting down with the Backyard Phenom I am proud to say I am officially a card carrying member of The Diablo Nation.
Abi Rose lifts up a card signifying her membership to the Diablo Nation.
Abi Rose: But now, without further ado, I bring to you the leader of the Diablo Nation. The number one contender to the Ultimate Title. The poster boy and one half of the main event of Game Over. Ladies and gentlemen, El Diablo Blanco.
The screen splits from just Abi Rose to a split screen that features El Diablo Blanco on the left side. He’s already waving through the screen.
El Diablo Blanco: How we doing today, Sister?
Abi Rose: Great, as always El D.
El Diablo Blanco: I see that you’ve picked up a t-shirt over at MHW.com/shopzone where if you put in the coupon code GAMEOVER you will receive 20% off your entire order.
Abi Rose: That I did. Now, El D. I hate to start things out on a sour note but the fans are clamoring to discuss your match with Skrabal Stanzas two weeks ago at Throwdown and I would be remiss if we didn’t touch the subject.
El Diablo Blanco: Well, Sister, some may think I’m down in the dumps after my match against Mr. Stanzas. I was so angry. I was filled with a rage I’d never felt before going into that match. Someone needed to put a Man like Skrabz in his place and I was ready to be the one to do that, Sister. I was being put to the test in ways I never thought I would before. I came within a zeptosecond of beating him but ultimately I, like many others before me, fell to Skrabal Stanzas. I was sad, Sister. I was down in the dumps and I wallowed. I let the Diablo Nation down. I let my Little Diablita back at home down. I fought valiantly but it just wasn’t enough that night.
Abi Rose: If it’s any consolation, people are still talking about how big of a match that was and how it may have been the most competitive match we’ve seen on MHW TV in a long time.
El Diablo Blanco: That certainly helps but there was but one thing that cheered me up, Sister. You see, I took a red eye back home to Chicago. I touched down at Midway Airport and grabbed a Crave Crate of White Castle burgers on my way home. I set them down on my dining room table and went to give the Wifey a kiss on the forehead as she peacefully slept. I peeked inside the Little Diablitos room and I saw something different about that room. That bare spot on the wall where her Man Like Skrabz poster was ripped down was no longer bare, Sister.
El Diablo Blanco’s head drops slightly.
Abi Rose: What occupied that spot?
El Diablo Blanco: In that spot occupied a poster of Good Ol El D. You see, I was looking at things all wrong, Sister. At Throwdown I was downright set to slay the monster that made my daughter cry. I couldn’t get the job done and that shattered my heart to itty bitty pieces. It wasn’t about beating Skrabal Stanzas in the end. When I walked into my Little Diablita’s room and saw that poster, I saw where a new hero occupied her heart. Her daddy was her hero and that reminded me of what this is all about, Sister. We don’t always get retribution against our bullies but if you stand up to them it makes all the difference in the world. That act of standing up made a difference in my daughter’s eyes and I hope it did the same for all the Little Diablitos throughout the Diablo Nation.
Abi Rose: You certainly have been an inspiration to many in just a short period of time.
El Diablo Blanco: Let me tell you something, Sister. Each and every day, many of us encounter some sort of bullying on a daily basis. It could be a kid in school bullied for how they’re dressed. It could be because they’ve excelled quicker in their studies. It could be because they’re not as athletic. It could be in the workplace because of competitive jealousy. Maybe they’ll let you do all the work to get themselves recognized only to throw you under the bus at a moment’s notice the second something goes wrong. It could be a certain Ultimate Champion that refers to others as peasants, peons or yours truly as the court jester.
Abi Rose: A little close to home?
El Diablo Blanco: Good Ol El D is no stranger to bullying. It’s happened more times than I can count. Take a look at this Sunday at Game Over. Do you really think there are those out there that believe I belong in the main event, challenging for the MHW Ultimate Championship, Sister? Do you really think they believe I belong on the poster for Game Over? They take one look at me and they think I’m just a joke. They are too scared to look further than this exterior though, I’ll tell you that much, Sister. You see, I’ve worked my tuchus off to get to this match. I EARNED this shot at the championship, Sister. I’m not about to let someone calling me a court jester to be the reason I cower away from a championship opportunity. I’ve been in the ring one on one with the champ. I know what she has to bring to the table. The War Queen Leah Aguero is one tough competitor as evident by our last encounter.
Abi Rose: That she is. To recap, the last time the two of you were inside that ring together, it was a champion versus champion non-title contest in which The War Queen knocked you out with her dreaded Endgame and then proceeded to snip some of the hair from your mask. Hair that still sits on a necklace around her neck to this day.
El Diablo Blanco: That’s all the reason in the world that nobody seems to think that El D has a snowball's chance in heck of dethroning the queen but let me tell you something, Sister. I won’t back down. No, I won’t back down, Sister. They can stand me up at the gates of heck but I won’t back down. I’m gonna stand my ground, Sister. I won’t be turned around. The naysayers of the world are going to try and drag me down but I’m gonna stand my ground. I know what’s right and I got just one life, Sister. This is my opportunity to take that next step. This is my opportunity to go from card carrying member of the Mile High Club to MHW Ultimate Champion and you know what, Sister?
Abi Rose: You won’t back down?
El Diablo Blanco: Darn tootin’, Sister. You see, just because I forgave Miss Aguero for her transgressions after our last encounter. Just because I understood The War Queen was trying to do what she felt she needed to do in order to make a name for herself, it doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten. The War Queen kicked me so hard in the head I didn’t know this from that, Sister. I didn’t know if I was face down in the mat or looking up at the lights. Well, this is round two, Sister. This is War Queen vs the Backyard Phenom Round Numero Dos and I’m coming to fight. I’m coming to fight for my Little Diablitos at home. I’m coming to fight for all the Diablo Nation Members out there. I’m coming to fight for the Shieldmaidens like Alex Carbajal, Evan Maloney, Jackie Layton and Kara Carter. All who have stepped up to The War Queen Leah Aguero and her Queendom and suffered defeat at their hands. Miss Aguero has had her cup of tea at the top but it’s time for someone to rise up against the tyranny of The War Queen and end her reign. To end the era of the War Queen. I’m ready for Vegas, Sister. If the War Queen thinks this is going to end quickly then she’s got another thing coming. We might just see a new MHW Ultimate Champion. Diggit?!
Abi Rose: I can diggit, El D. I’ll see you at Game Over.
The duo sign off further promoting this Sunday’s MHW Game Over special event.
The scene opens up inside the Aguero residency in the south side of Chicago, IL. Seated on her throne down in the basement, The War Queen Leah Aguero is perched looking over the rest of the room. A frame picture of the Kneel Before Thee Queendom poster hangs from the wall behind the throne. The MHW Ultimate and Tag Team Titles are prominently displayed beside the queen. On the other side sits the NFW Trios Titles that the Second City Riot Squad collectively hold. Jed Coffey, with hair pulled back into a man bun, walks over to the queen with a serving plate and a drink that sits atop it.
Jed Coffey: Wellers Special Reserve neat as requested.
Without acknowledging Coffey, Leah Aguero grabs the glass from the tray and takes a sip before setting it down on one of the arm rests of the throne.
Leah Aguero: There comes a point in all our lives when we must accept our fate. We must embrace the destiny that lies before us. So many misguided people today ignore the signs and believe they can change their lot in life as if they can outrun their impending doom. My warriors. My soldiers in the Second City Riot Squad knew their fate. They accepted what was to come of them. The Wild Hunt, however, proved to be too stubborn, too arrogant, too headstrong to comprehend that the outcome was so far out of their reach that they too fell into the absentminded spiral that was their unwitting downfall. The Bandit and the Killer, such promise, such hype, such disappointment. The two of you came with such a reputation. Jackie Layton, the tag team specialist, the untouchable. Kara Carter, the hot-headed, the unfuckwithable. Undefeated as a tag team here in Mile High Wrestling, taking on all comers without hesitation. That is, until my knights of the Queendom arrived. Admittedly, those tag team titles served very little concern to us as our sights were set elsewhere. You chose to step out of line back at Mile High Spectacular III and, well, I knew the peasants had to pay for their misdeeds. The all powerful, dominating tag team known as The Wild Hunt met their demise. Your precious tag team title reign had met its doom and now the Queendom’s power grows stronger. I suggest you accept your fate and step aside.
The War Queen pauses to grab another drink from her glass.
Leah Aguero: There were others in your sisterhood that did not heed the warnings. Your Warrior, Eavan Maloney, the false prophet, saw the signs all around her. Her arrogance became her undoing much in the same vein as yours. The difference is merely in her temper tantrum that led to the Krigare putting her career on the line. She stepped out of line and that put her ass in the unemployment line.
Leah smugly shakes her head disapprovingly.
Leah Aguero: There is another poor unsuspecting fool that lies before me. The one known as El Diablo Blanco. Many view this sap to be the voice to the voiceless but I’ve got just one word that describes him: pathetic. You see, when I step in the ring it only takes half a second to realize that my opponent is in for a world of hurt. I am a wrestler. I work like a wrestler. I act like a wrestler. I dish out pain like a wrestler. On the other side of the equation we’ve got a pathetic excuse for a “wrestler”. We’ve got someone that should be performing in the backlot of a flea market. We’ve got an individual that is content to just let his body go and be proud to rock the “dad bod.” The problem is that on El Diablo Blanco’s best day he will only ever be average. Sure, he’s amassed a following by being a jovial buffoon who dances around and entertains the children. Perhaps we should even have him stand outside of the T-Mobile Arena making balloon animals.
Again, the War Queen takes another sip of her drink.
Leah Aguero: A lot of people wonder what it takes to be a great professional wrestler. It certainly takes stamina. It takes the knowledge of wrestling. It takes the ability. It takes a lot of guts or intestinal fortitude. But I think something that the War Queen Leah Aguero has that a lot of other people don’t have is patience, the ability to wait. Patience and planning always pay off. You see, El Diablo Blanco, the moment you became the number one contender to MY MHW Ultimate Title, I sent you a message. The Second City Riot Squad and I gave you a close up view of something you will never have and that’s the Ultimate Championship. Then, we backed off. You see, we don’t need to do the sneak attacks. We don’t need to wear you down prior to our bout this Sunday at Game Over. No, we let you sit there and think about the impending doom that looms before you. That’s what sets one of the greats, me, apart from someone like you.
A devilish smirk comes across the face of the queen.
Leah Aguero: El Diablo Blanco can show up every two weeks to Mile High Wrestling to play wrestler but I’m the real wrestler in this contest. I’ve already proved that this “backyard phenom” is nothing more than a second tier act that is merely occupying space until the next incognizant twit steps before the queen. The last time the two of us inhabited the ring together, the nitwit was left unconscious on the mat at my hands. I declared that my subjects would either fall in line or suffer the wrath of their queen. Either way, they would kneel before thee and kiss thy boot. I booted El Diablo Blanco with the Endgame and I took my first souvenir. The locks of the man known as El D still grace my necklace. Beside it rests the blood of the zombie and the bleached out pelt of the Krigare. When I put you down this time, what will I take from you?
Inquisically, The War Queen puts a finger up to her chin to think.
Leah Aguero: For a court jester, you are at least wise enough to not put your career on the line. You already know the forgone conclusion so you are at least doing yourself a favor and your family a favor by remaining gainfully employed. Maybe your dignity? No, you already left that at the door the moment you donned that ridiculous mask and those atrocious Zubaz. It’s one thing to wear them to the gym but to wear them to the ring just screams discount wrestler. You are but a blemish to the MHW Roster and your defeat will be handled swiftly. Your best recourse and the smartest thing to do is to give up in front of millions of people all over the world and to concede by telling everyone that the Queendom have beaten you. Know your place in the pecking order, El D.
Another pause leads to another sip of her Wellers drink.
Leah Aguero: This Sunday in Las Vegas, El Diablo Blanco, I’m set out to prove that you don’t belong in this position. I’m the one that’s selling out The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. You’re the one barely getting anyone to show up to a free show at the Bonanza Casino over in Reno. What I’m saying is, at Game Over, all the pretending is best left at the door. Pretending to be a main eventer. Pretending thinking you deserve a shot at MY MHW Ultimate Championship is out the window and you’re sent down to curtain jerking shows where you belong. There’s a reason the Good Times Tour is going to be rolling into town and you’re teaming with the likes of Azurine Vebbins. She knows her lot in life. She knows the pecking order. Stick with her and you might get some of my crumbs.
Jed Coffey appears once again with the serving tray. This time with a cigar, cutter and lighter. The War Queen removes the cigar from the tray as well as the cutter. She cuts the end off and reaches for the lighter. Torch ablaze, she rolls the cigar in her hand as the paper toasts in front of her. Satisfied, she puts the lighter back on the tray as Coffey disappears once again. The War Queen puts the cigar to her lips and draws a few slow puffs of the cigar.
Leah Aguero: The Queendom is growing more and more powerful with each passing day. El Diablo Blanco’s days in the limelight are numbered. Then, the attention moves on to the next poor unsuspecting sap that emerges victoriously from the Game Over Penitentiary. It shall be quite amusing, actually. I will sit atop my throne watching down at the peasants do battle. Who will emerge with victory in their grasps. Who will entertain the queen and become the next chosen one to inevitably fall to the Queendom? The Era of the War Queen continues to rage on.
The War Queen draws in another puff of the cigar and lets the smoke fill the room.
Leah Aguero: The days are counting down. El Diablo’s time is limited and his promise will soon fade. El Diablo Blanco, be prepared to go 0-2 against the queen and just know that this MHW Ultimate Title will remain around my waist when Game Over is said and done by any means necessary. Now can you dig that…. Brother.
Another pull from the cigar followed by one last gulp over her drink sends the scene to darkness.

Admin: Where do yall hist photos? I'm thinking about switching sites, because I'm paying a monthly subscription for Photobucket and they got watermarks back on my images. I'm guessing it's a glitch or something, but it's already been two days.
Aug 7, 2021 6:56:18 GMT -6
The Purge: I use Imgur - and I've never paid a cent for their services, and no water marks
Aug 7, 2021 8:48:13 GMT -6
Deleted: o.o Lord, Rob! Get away from Photobucket ASAP! I’m with Haircin — use Imgur. It’s way better and costs nothing.
Aug 8, 2021 16:28:35 GMT -6
Admin: I appreciate yall! ✊💯💯 Ima look into it this week. Apologies to everyone if some of the images for the show tonight have that Photobucket watermark. I didn't have the time today obviously to make any switches. But I will make time this week. 💯💯

Aug 8, 2021 17:44:00 GMT -6
Admin: ***NOTE*** I moved the deadline up 12 hours to give the judges an extra day to read over the rps.
Aug 10, 2021 15:29:37 GMT -6
Admin: Started messing with Imgur today and confirmed to myself that Imgur was the original photo host I was using for Season One and the beginning of Season Two of MHW. Something made me mad and thats when I switched to Photobucket. I don't remember what though.
Aug 12, 2021 16:08:47 GMT -6

Sept 15, 2021 15:35:32 GMT -6
cmosh: Don't worry I don't know how to pronounce it either. She is actually played by someone else, so it is sometimes hard to do RP's with them due to our work schelduce but I am alound to use the character over here
Sept 15, 2021 19:28:12 GMT -6
Admin: Trying something different with the match writing, based off of research and just to try something new. It's a hit or miss concept, so feedback would be appreciated. ThrowDown will also debut the new layout concept. AMMO will start with that new layout...
