I think the moment he utters Rai's name, Franky would get so enraged, nearly exploding from anger over the fact that he dared to utter his Master's name. Some unworthy Traitor now trying to defile his name/legacy by spouting lies.
The OG that ran Bleach for near a decade is no more.

While there is a possibility that this can happen, I believe it otherwise. Union characters are known for their dumb behaviour. No matter how many elders they loose, they are always prepared to underestimate their opponents. Like Jammin said "their power of underestimation knows no bound."
It's likely that 8th Elder would say that it's his chance to fight with Franky as Zarga got to fight with Seira.
its true as Jammin said "their power of underestimation knows no bound." but now difference is 7th know frank so they will take him seriously and frank will also give his 100% from start because when he come there he will know how serious this fight is.
I wonder if Franken and Zarga have sparred before. I remember Rai saying that Franken got into quite a few fights even if most of them were with Ragar/ Regia (whatever the hell his name is). I would think that it would be wise to guage the strength of the person guarding the one you want to kill.
Franken would go ballistic if Zarga offers him a spotin the union and uses Rai's name.
