AWC Times Mag 7: Nissa versus Zarah – Lightweight Tourney Match
This lightweight battle will help determine who continues on their quest to be the AWC lightweight champion and who is kicked back into the pool of wanna be contenders. Last time we saw Nissa, she left the apartment after a hard loss with more than just her pride injured. Can she bounce back from her injury and become the lightweight champion? Or will Zarah continue her undefeated career in the AWC and demonstrate to the world that she is a dominant force to be reckoned with in the AWC.
Nissa (5’2 110 lbs 21 y/o) lives near Lima. She works as a teacher in a local school. She is a fitness instructor at a health club as her second job. A wealthy business owner is sponsoring her in hopes of making her a star in the Apartment Wrestling Club. Nissa has always been into fitness and outdoor activities. She is a former equestrian star in the local area. Nissa’s response about why she would be a good Apartment fighter — “I never give up at anything I do. Being the best is important to me and I have always been the best at what I participate in. This will be no different.”
Zarah (5’4 110 lbs 23 y/o) lives near San Francisco. She is self-employed as the COO of a small technology start-up in Silicon Valley. Her family is originally from India and they are quite wealthy. This wealth has enabled Zarah to get a business degree from NYU and to pursue her career as a young entrepreneur. She stays remarkably fit and does some modeling on a part-time basis. She thinks her focus and discipline makes her a star in the making in the apartment fighting realm. Zarah’s response about why she would be a good Apartment fighter — “I’ve got the best trainers, the best resume, and the best looks of all the fighters at the Club. This is just one more challenge for me to overcome, and I always break down and overcome anything that challenges me. The other women in the Club would do best to stay out of my way. I’m destined to be a champion.”
Before the fighters enter the arena a large TV screen on the wall broadcasts a short video segment of the Apartment Wrestling Internet Show featuring two of the hosts talking about the upcoming match between Nissa and Zarah. “This one is going to answer a lot of questions for me. Nissa lost in an ugly way last time we saw her. Sometimes that can define a fighter. Zarah is a bit untested. Tonight we get to see what the next chapter for these two is going to be. I think Nissa bounces back and wins handily over Zarah.” The second commentator chimes in “Super excited for this one. Both want to be the lightweight champion. Both want to prove something. Only one gets to do that tonight. I think you are right though this time. Nissa has been a great fighter until she was shockingly injured in her last match. She picks up where she left off before that fight I think.” The screen goes dark as the fighters come out of the dressing rooms to the main room.
Both fighters now enter the main arena room where the fight will be held. The room layout consists of a wide open space for the fighters with no furnishings and plenty of room for the large crowd for this lightweight tournament battle. The crowd is buzzing with excitement and energy as they wait for the fighters to appear.
The officiator of the match calls out for everyone’s attention and introduces both fighter. The girls are brought out to the center of the room together and given a quick summary of the rules. “You have both done this before. There are no rules for tonight’s fight. The match will consist of four 4 minute rounds with a 1 minute rest period at the end of each round. The first one to force the other to submit is the winner. When a round ends I will call for a break and we will resume after the short rest period. After four rounds the fifth round will be untimed and will continue until someone submits to end the match. The match will start when I say so and will not end until we have a submission.”
