A second chance; a second awakening.
Safewake. Once a name feared, now no longer revered. A cocky unicorn martial artist and knock-out king who has fallen far from his throne as quickly as he ascended.
A gifted unicorn of the fighting arts, he surprisingly outmatched other seasoned ponies in his rookie career. The new-found fame and glory was all so sudden, that he didn't know how to react to it properly. It resulted into Safewake plunging into the vanities and toxicities of the rich and elite: Mares, Salt, Happy Cupcakes, Bit Gambling.
As if a joke has been played on him by fate, he was defeated by a rookie rainbow pegasus who just happened to drop by for a money match. Body and Ego bruised, his career went to a downward spiral.
He lost nearly everything. Mares, Money, Motivation.
He became a pitiable shadow of his former self, and spoke to himself about repentance and how he doesn't know how to start over again.
While trotting down the street, as if by chance, he met an old friend of him. Safewake recognized him, for this person is the one he helped against robbers during his rookie season. This pony now seeks to repay his good deed.
The pony invited him to join the Iron Pony Fighting Cup, promising prestige, glory, and another chance to get back to the pegasus who destroyed him.
Seeing that Safewake knew that he could not go any lower, he did not give this a second thought, especially when his redemption would be the reward.
