Aerostar & Fenix Backstage Segment:
Now that Aerostar is out of the Cueto Cup Tournament, he’s putting all his money on Fenix. It’s not really fair to let a time traveler gamble isn’t it? Aerostar has absolutely no idea what Fenix is talking about. Nobody was closer to Drago than Aerostar and he can’t act like this situation is not affecting him. Drago will see the light.
