[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]FADE-IN:Crown Heights Assembly gym in Brooklyn. Eli Scheinberg is sitting on the steps of a closed cage, two fighters sparring inside with the gym's head trainer, Mordy Rosenberg, stopping them occasionally to give pointers. Punching bags and random shouting can be heard during the course of the interview.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Eli is wearing a red Manchester United Football Club t-shirt, the sweat soaking through, and black wind shorts. He looks exhausted, his trainers getting on his case for his languid style and slacking work ethic. [/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]He takes a sip from his water bottle and wipes his brow...[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “Introduce yourself...”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “F-ck, really? Every bloody interview I gotta introduce myself.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “Hey, nobody knows who you are yet. I was warned you were a complainer. Just do the interview, ok?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG:Sighs. “Eh... Well, my name is Eli Scheinberg. I come from Manchester, England. I'm Jewish. They call me the 'Hebrew Hitman,' all that bollocks... I wrestle in Next Level Wrestling and do real fighting for SWIFT, but I don't need to tell you that since you're wearing a SWIFT t-shirt, Mr. Cameraman, you... Other people are gonna watch this, right?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “Uh... Yeah? Of course?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “Ok, it's just that you're both the cameraman and the interviewer. I feel like you're just going to take this and jack off to it in your basement or something.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “I assure you Mr. Scheinberg, that's not going to happen.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “K, good. I mean, you'd think SWIFT would have had some interview person by now.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “We do, actually. Alison Retty got stuck in traffic apparently and we don't have time to waste. Please, just answer our questions, ok? I was warned that you go off-track and rant a lot.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]EL SCHEINBERG: “Hey, I'm not the one that flew you out to New York so you can film me in this little gym here. As a matter of fact, if it was up to me, we wouldn't even have this right now and I'd take the proper break that I'm suppose to have. F-cking Mordy is working my damn balls off.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “It's become well known since you signed for NLW and SWIFT MMA that you have a bit of a... well... people have described your training as 'lazy.'”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “Hey, I've always worked at my own pace. Why run when you can walk and get the same end result? I've had a cavalier attitude towards everything, and that's because I'm good at everything. Everything I care about, anyway.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “You're going up against Jonathan Marx in Texas. He's a professional wrestling legend, and you're a rookie who is going to have his first televised pro wrestling match on the 15th.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “Yeah, yeah, and he's 2-0 in MMA, isn't he?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “That's right, yes.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “That's only two bloody fights over me, so we're almost equal in the cage. But he's a big name and rightfully so. We're main eventing Retaliation 3 and I know I lot of people aren't gonna give two sh-ts about the f-cking Jewish guy that Marx is matched up against. Does that bother me? Not really, I'm only twenty-one. These things come with time. If I win, it would be great. My name will be on everyone's mind because Marx has looked impressive. I even said he'd win that last match.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “And if you don't win...?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “I would be down about it, yes. Nobody likes to lose. I know I'll get other opportunities, though. I'm too f-cking good to end up jobbing out to people. I know I'm talented, I know I can beat anybody in that cage, and I hate to get all bloody religious but us Jews believe there's Godliness in everything, even in defeat. If I am to lose, it is for a reason, and I will learn from it.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “So you think you're going to lose?”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “Psh, f-ck no! I'm not getting on a plane to Texas to lose! I'm set on making the Crown Heights Assembly proud, my family back in Manchester, my wife, I want them all to see me with my hand raised in victory. The fact nobody knows who the f-ck I am, and it's against Marx, it's gonna make it that much better. When they all hear my name, they're going to remember it because it will be the first of many times they'll hear it.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]CAMERAMAN: “Ok, this is good. We can end it here.”[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]ELI SCHEINBERG: “Good. F-ck sake, cutting into my break time. Barely have enough time to go take a piss before Mordy starts getting on my case again...”[/FONT]
::Marx is in the bank, collecting the money from his second SWIFT fight against Edward Rain in a big sack with a big dollar sign on it::
JONATHAN MARX: I remember the glory days of wrestling when you used to be able to get this much money as a professional wrestler.
::Jacobs rushes into the bank with a ski mask on, the teller hides behind her desk, Jacobs takes off the ski mask and starts talking to Marx::
BRANDON JACOBS: SWIFT has finally found you suitable competition. They have finally went out and found the toughest Jew on the planet.
JONATHAN MARX: My sweet darling, Bea Arthur?
BRANDON JACOBS: Okay, second toughest...
JONATHAN MARX: Former World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette?
BRANDON JACOBS: They couldn't get him.
JONATHAN MARX: Holy cow, they got Steve Guttenberg?!
BRANDON JACOBS: You got the berg part right, but it isn't Steve, let me just tell you now, its Eli Scheinberg.
JONATHAN MARX: He was my very next guess.
BRANDON JACOBS: He is competing in NLW with your student Yutaka Maeda.
JONATHAN MARX: That reminds me, as his business manager, I need to get that paper work done on his visa so he doesn't get deported back to Japan once this fight is over.
BRANDON JACOBS: At least you least you never got a wrestler deported back to Canada, that is nearly impossible to do and yet a company looking to make an Impact screwed that one up.
JONATHAN MARX: Eli has this awful reputation for being lazy which is the one thing you can't be in MMA or you are going to get beat. You have to go in there, focused, with a game plan. Someone like him is better suited for pro wrestling, there are plenty of leagues who love guys like him and will pay him a nice fat paycheck to fill out their rosters.
BRANDON JACOBS: He must be a hell of a performer to be called the Hebrew Hitman, that is shades of Bret Hart right there.
JONATHAN MARX: He isn't from Canada and he has no work ethic. That is a complete antithesis of Bret Hart. As a fellow Jew, I hate having to compete against one of my own, but I have to beat him to get to the next around of the tournament to become the first champion. It is time some changes his attitude.
BRANDON JACOBS: What makes you think you can change his attitude?
JONATHAN MARX: He has never been in a bout with a hooker of my caliber and unlike in the wrestling ring, I won't have to hold anything back and I like to hurt people.
