6 years ago, one of the best managers of the era suddenly disappeared, never to be seen again.
Till quite recently, that is. Appearing out of the wilderness, we had a quick interview with Shiv Redux.
Interviewer: Shiv! I can't believe it's really you! I'm a huge fan, could I get an autograph before we start? Thanks! Anyway, where have you been at all this while?
Shiv: That's a good question. I'm not sure how to answer it, to be fair. I'd been at the top for too long, it was too easy and too boring - I needed a challenge.
Interviewer: So... did you find one?
Shiv: You could say that. I traveled. I fought the bulls in Spain, played a game of Calcio Fiorentino in Italy, even did a form of Vale Tudo up in Brazil. That year was quite interesting.
Interviewer: Wow, that sounds intense. And that was challenging?
Shiv: Nope, all that just made me realize that the only true challenge I would get would be myself. I spent then next 3 years meditating in a small village in Cambodia.
Interviewer: So, what are you doing around here now? Are you back?
Shiv: After Cambodia, I traveled the world again, this time looking for the right individuals for me to mould into gods. All the kids that you see training under me are people I came across on my travels.
Interviewer: Looking at your roster, I can see people from so many countries. England, Spain, Greece, Thailand and even Nigeria. It must be quite a colorful training camp.
Shiv: Oh, the boys are fantastic. They're all getting the hang of English now, so that's just making things easier. It's not a big deal though, since fighting is a language of it's own.
Interviewer: There's an amazing scholarship fund that's currently looking for an upcoming talent - do you think there's anyone you'd like to suggest?
Shiv: Honestly, they're all fantastic. You could probably give them all scholarships. If I have to pick one out though, it would probably be...
Shiv: ... Iolyn "Tywysog y Gigfran" Madog. He's a Welsh boy - really bright and boy can he take a punch. He was locally called "The Price of Ravens". I think it was a prophetic claim on how great he's going to become.
Interviewer: Amazing! That should be great. Can we get a quick quote from Iolyn? Do you have any advice for other fighters like yourself looking to move to a city like London?
Iolyn: Never kiss a girl whose brothers have knife scars.
Interviewer: That... sounds like it was from experience. I think that should be enough though, thanks!
