"Punisher War Journal: NNNNNNNNNNNNGH"

Faced off once more in the center of the ring
Touched gloves, said a prayer and the bell went *ding*.
He hit me with a left and shattered my face
Then a right sent my teeth all over the place.
Then another great punch caved-in my eye socket
He broke my jaw, and my trainer yelled, "Stop it!"
But nobody heard him and he crushed my ribs
Blood sprayed off my face and onto some kids.
They yelled out, "More!", and Rocky obliged
I had to think of some way to turn the tides
So I leaned back to hit him with all of my might
Took a swing, but he caught me with a sucker punch right.
Then a sucker punch left, and a sucker punch right
He tore off my arms and beat me with them
Then threw acid in my face, which obscured my vision.
He kicked me in the leg and fractured my shin
The bone splinters shot right out of my skin
People barfed in the crowd, they were going insane
Then Rocky punched my nose-bone into my brain.
I was quivering and twitching when I soiled my shorts
Then Rocky pissed on me (customary in sports)
The doctor came out and pronounced me dead,
It's hard to make a guy with a spiked ball and chain versus the unarmed people look good, but in lucha, the luchadores could turn up to the final scene in a tank and it wouldn't be any more one-sided.
