‘The Phoenix Reign’ – Unveil Raze
All the lights start to dim until the arena it pitch black.
We are the FIRE.
We’re RISING higher now…
The words from “The Phoenix Reign” by Unveil Raze boom through the arena, orange lights begin to pulse on the stage in tune with the music and specific words to the song start to scrawl onto the screen in a vibrating manic orange font.
Through the ASHES…
Everything suddenly becomes quiet and the pulsating lights fade until the last line is played a maximum volume, and all of the lights on the video screen and on the stage illuminate in a blinding white.
Once a part of the famous tag team TRES BIEN, with partner Maya Nakashima, Shinya found a great deal of success in the wrestling world. Despite ups and downs because of his relationship with Maya, the two would achieve tag team championship glory on multiple occasions in multiple organizations during their tenure. However, the two decided to take a break from wrestling and settle down together in Japan, where the two bought a home and were looking into the possibility of marriage.
But then everything changed.
When the earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit, their whole world was sent crumbling into the dark watery abyss. Maya managed to find high ground, he escaped the deluge. Shinya, however, was not so lucky… the ocean swallowed him whole. When Shinya was finally found again he didn’t know anything. It was like everything was erased from his mind, like a blank slate. He didn’t know who Maya was, he didn’t remember anything about TRES BIEN or wrestling, it was all just… gone.
But as time went on, even without his memory, he learned to live again. He started fresh, and lived his life one day at a time. Not remembering his love for Maya, he found love with one of the nurses who helped him during his physical rehab. They had just become engaged, his life was as perfect as it could be, he had overcome everything life threw at him.
Until one day…
He started to remember.
