I want Beowulf's intro to be him in the empty arena caressing the ropes, sighing as he gets up on the ring. Then, he hears voices, he sees a dark figure approaching; it's Grendel. Grendel tries to guilt-trip him but Beowulf tries to rationalize it, "I did it to save the audience...!" Grendel taunts him and Beowulf, not wanting to hear of what he's done, strikes him with the Hurting. It's double and now she takes his form, a taunting retelling of that final match. Beowulf tightens his grip on the Hurting, he feels the rush and excitement of fighting again; that feeling that made him want to retire from retirement. Is it an obsession? Wanting to feel the rush and excitement, the cheers and the adrenaline? He beats double and sees the commotion outside, he thinks. Maybe if he takes out the skullgirl he can redeem himself of what he has done.
Or he really just wants to see how strong he is; how should I know~~
