Moss: When Classic Wrestling began, we told you folks we were going to see 16 of the top competitors in the professional wrestling space take part in a tournament. A tournament that would establish our very first Classic Wrestling REAL WORLDS CHAMPION! Well now it’s time to find out who’s going to come out of that tournament as the champion.
Howley: Main Event time! This one is for all the marbles Moss, The whole kit and kaboodle, It’s Make or break! It’s all on the line!
Moss: Both of these men have made it through three individual matches, winning each one along the way! The winner will have certainly earned the championship once and for all.
Howley: It should be a great match Moss, we;ve got the technical prowess of Alex Bruder, vs the second generation wrestling repertoire of Rush Starling. Let’s kick it over the Harold Robbins.
“Train of Consequences” by Megadeath hits the loudspeakers.
Robbins: The following matchup is scheduled for one fall with a 60 minute time limit! AND IS FOR THE CLASSIC WRESTLING REAL WORLDS CHAMPIONSHIP!
The crowd cheers loudly for the championship. Ready to see it crowned.
Robbins: Coming to the ring first, From Hillsboro, North Dakota.. This is “All Business” ALEX BRUDER!
“All Business” Alex Bruder comes out to his music, the lights lowered and a single spotlight on him. He ignores the crowd, not returning their insults. He enters via the stairs, wipes his boots on the apron, and goes to his corner, pulling against the top ropes, a mixture of last minute stretching and testing the rope’s tension.
The opening roar of “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project begins to hum across the Classic Studio. The crowd begins to rise up on their feet cheering as a fog machine does its job pumping out a white smoke that fills the entrance area.
DUN DUN DUN, DUN DUN DUH
A white strobe begins to flicker through the thick fog as Rush Starling walks out to the roar of the fans in attendance. He doesn’t waste time and marches towards the ring slapping hands with fans and making sure to grab a fan sign of support to wave, rallying the crowd.
Robbins: And his opponent / Making his way to the ring, weighing in at 240 pounds he hails from Allentown, Pennsylvania. This is Rush Starling!
Rush sprints up the steps, slips through the ropes, and immediately mounts the turnbuckle pumping up the crowd. He points to the fans closest by giving them warm smiles before he steps down and faces the referee to be checked for combat.
Moss: This is the one we’ve all been waiting for. With wins over some of the toughest competition there is, these guys have fought, wrestled, and clawed to get here, for THAT championship!
Referee Kevin Clady holds up the new Championship for all to see, it’s gaudy, enormous, and gold!
Howley: Just look at it Moss!
Moss: A sight to behold that’s for sure!
The championship goes outside and bell is rung. The anticipation in the arena is palpable as the two competitors stare at one another from opposite corners.
They finally meet in the middle with an aggressive lock up. Both men try to use their strength to their advantage. Alex Bruder is able to back Rush into the ropes and goes for a quick overhead cheap shot. Starling moves but keeps the lockup on. Now Rush pulls Bruder into the turnbuckle and holds him against it.
Bruder: REF! WHERES THE BREAK!? DO YOUR JOB!
The official quickly starts a 5 count in the corner. Rush breaks the hold right away. He backs away with his arms in the air. Bruder sees and opening and kicks him in the gut, catching him off guard. Rush doubles over and Alex grabs him and shoves him face first off the top turnbuckle. Rush stumbles out of the corner holding his face. Bruder grabs him once more.
Moss: Bruder grabs a headlock around the neck AND top rope of the ring. He’s basically using that rope to choke Rush Starling right now!
Howley: I don’t think so Moss, he just doesn’t want to lose his balance! Hard to blame the guy. A lot of sweaty men on that mat tonight.
Bruder breaks the hold right before Kevin Clady hits 5 on his count. Now in firm control he pulled Rush to the center of the ring and grabs him around the waist. He hoists him up and slams him back down with a gutwrench suplex. Rush lands flat and appears to have the wind knocked out of him.
Alex Bruder points to his head and smiles. He moves off the mat and pulls Rush to his feet, only to be surprised as Rush pushes Bruders arms away and comes firing back with a couple of big right hands. Bruder is backed up to the ropes. Rush yells out in frustration and then comes after Bruder. Alex tries to back drop him over the top rope and to the floor. Luckily for Rush he’s able to hold onto the rope and land on the ring apron. He scrambles to regain his balance and pulls Alex Bruder through the ropes and to the apron as well. Both men outside start exchange strikes. Finally one of Rush’s kicks lands hard in the gut of Bruder and he falls to the floor, landing on his feet.
He turns around to face his opponent, just as Rush runs down the apron and dives!
Moss: What a diving clothesline from Rush Starling! He nearly took Bruder’s head off with that one!
Fans in the arena get on their feet. The ones seated next to the action are losing their collective minds. Official Kevin Clady gets out of the ring and checks to make sure both men are able to continue, they both quickly confirm that they’re willing and able. He returns to the ring and begins to count them out.
Both men get to their feet before the count, Rush Starling is in first. Bruder is right behind him. Rush hits the ropes and comes back but Alex was ready for him. He lifts him up, using his momentum against him, Bruder falls backwards sending Rush once again throat first onto the top rope. They both crash on the mat. Bruder hooks the leg and goes for a pin.
Howley: Watch out Moss this one might be over!
Rush kicks out with authority.
Moss: Rush still has some fight in him!
Howley: Most definitely Moss, he beat Lord Colossus! That said, You can tell Bruder is softening him up for that Cobra Clutch! Everything he’s been doing has been on the head and neck!
Almost as if on queue, Bruder grabs a side headlock as Rush gets to his feet. Rush for his efforts is quick to find a way out. He lifts Bruder straight up into the air and then back down on his knee.
Moss: Atomic Drop!
Bruder holds his tailbone/ass in pain. Rush waits for him to turn around before he drills him with a dropkick that sends Bruder flying. Rush shakes his arms as he gets going, and the crowd is loving it.
Both men back up and Bruder rushes in at Starling. Rush bends over and hits a huge back body drop!
Howley: How did he throw him that high!
Moss: That’s gotta hurt!
Bruder right back up again, and runs once more and rush meets him with a knee to the midsection. Rush hooks his head and turns him over slowly and drops down.
Howley: He broke his neck with that move!
Moss: Neckbreaker by Starling finds it’s mark! Could this be it?
Rush now goes for the cover trying to seal the deal.
NO NO! The official waves it off.
Moss: Bruder’s shoulder didn’t come off the mat Thunderbird!
Howley: But his foot is draped over that bottom rope, look here! That’s a good call by official Kevin Clady! That’s not a three count!
Rush’s face goes from elation to deflation as he realizes it’s not quite over. He nods his acceptance to the official and pulls Bruder off the mat. Both men are exhausted. Rush hooks the head of Bruder and looks for a bulldog.
Moss: Reversed by Bruder! He just tossed Rush off of him! The 2nd Generation superstar hit the mat hard on that one.
Bruder slides outside of the ring. Grabs the leg of Rush Starling and pulls it towards him. He then lifts it slams it down on the ring apron. Rush grabs his leg and tries to get back in the ring but Bruder pulls him all the way to the floor. Big right hand from Alex has Rush dazed. Alex Bruder then irish whips Rush Starling right into steel barricade that separates the fans and the ring.\
Moss: Oh! Back first into that steel rail! It has no give in it!
Bruder lines up his shot and runs at Starling. Rush gets a boot up in time to stop the oncoming attack. Bruder stumbles and falls across the railing, landing on the lap of a couple Classic Wrestling fans. He looks up at them, and jumps as if he was scared by their appearance. He falls back over the guardrail where Rush is ready for him.
Moss: Starling now rolls Bruder back into the ring, and now… what’s he doing?
Howley: He’s climbing to the top turnbuckle Moss! He’s looking for a high risk move.
Moss: He could be going for the big Elbow Drop of his!
In fact Rush does line up the jump, and take off. He lifts his arm and bends it with the point facing down.
Moss: Look at that elevation! Aaaaaaannnddddd…. NO! Alex Bruder moves! Rush Starling misses the elbow! He landed right on the point of that elbow into the mat!
Howley: Bruder is right on top of him! Watch Out!
Bruder twists the arm that Rush just hurt. He then ties it around Starling’s own neck!
Moss: COBRA CLUTCH! HE’S GOT IT LOCKED IN!
Kevin Clady gets in the face of Rush Starling to see if he wants to give up. Rush shakes his head no what little he can. The official waves off the ring bell, he hasn’t quit yet. Rush fires up his fists and starts pumping them. He moves from the mat to his backside with his own free hand. Then to a knee… Bruder pulls harder, screaming out in frustration as he ties the hold in tighter!
Howley: He’s getting up!
Moss: I can’t believe it Rush is fighting through the pain!
Starling makes it to his feet with Bruder behind him. Alex makes a last ditch effort and jumps onto the back of Rush and wraps his legs around in a body vice as well. Rush is able to run around for a moment. He gives it all he has and jumps straight up in the air and down ontop of Bruder.
Moss: What a move by Rush Starling!
Howley: LOOK MOSS LOOK! BRUDER DIDNT LET GO!
In fact he thrashes back and forth trying to cut off more air to Starling. After a few more seconds Rush stops moving. The official lifts his free arm three times, but to no avail!
KEVIN CLADY CALLS FOR THE BELL!
Moss: This one is over! We have our very first REAL WORLDS CHAMPION Thunderbird! Can you believe it! What a battle!
Howley: Bruder went through a virtual army to get here Moss and tonight Rush Starling just didn’t have enough to get it done. He fought hard, but that Cobra Clutch is something else!
“Train of Consequences” by Megadeath kicks on the loudspeaker as Bruder finally breaks the hold and Rush Starling falls lifeless to the mat. The official grabs the championship and presents it to Alex Bruder who has a smug smile on his face. Almost like he suspected it would be this way all along.
Moss: 4 Straight wins and crowned first ever REAL WORLDS CHAMPION here in Classic Wrestling!
Robbins: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner by submission! ALLLL BUSINESSSS ALEX BRUDER!
His music plays as he walks to each corner of the ring and stares out at the fans in a “I told you so” type way. He walks past Starling and shakes his head and rubs his feet next to him.
Bruder leaves the ring and holds the belt high to a chorus of boos from the Classic Wrestling crowd.
Moss: Folks join us on Classic Wrestling on RBTV next week to see the amazing fallout from SLAM A THON! 3 new Champions crowned! We’ve got a whole roster of competitors looking to earn their shot!
