Backstage the owner of Classic Wrestling, Mr. Jimmy Dale is on a classic desktop phone seemingly trying to get off the line.
Jimmy Dale: Ok Ted, I really have to go. We are doing our first show right now, and I got the son of the VP of RBTV waiting for me. Yup. Nepotism at its finest. Ok see you.
The older man chuckles a bit as he hangs up the phone and motions for the kid to come in.
Jimmy Dale: So you must be Burt Howell’s son?
A semi chubby mid twenties long hair kid in a powder blue suit walks in and shakes the owner’s hand with vigor.
Kid: Yes sir, I’m Burton Hoyt Howell the third!! Pleasure to meet you.
Jimmy Dale: Well let’s keep this brief you were supposed to be here two hours ago!
Burt Howell: Sorry I had to get my suit from the dry cleaners. Here is my resume. I’m a communications graduate from Boston College. I figured this suit would stand out on TV. Do you have any format cards for me to study? A ring announcer should always be prepared!
The owner looks over the resume before shaking his head a little at a loss for words.
Jimmy Dale: I hate to tell you this but I promised your dad I’d give you a job but the ring announcer positions are full. I was thinking more backstage type stuff, helping with the wrestlers, and their needs. Look son, everyone starts somewhere if you do well, skys the limit in our young company, and perhaps down the road we can look at you for an on air position.
The kid looks somewhat dejected but shrugs it off.
Burt Howell: Very well!! I’ll introduce myself to the locker room and see how I can be of assistance.
The owner smiles and shakes the kids hand.
Jimmy Dale: Welcome to Classic Wrestling! That sounds excellent!! We’ll talk more next week. I’m sorry I’m short on time with the show happening right now! If you would excuse me I have to check on something.
The older man exits the office leaving the kid with a beaming smile on his face.
Burt Howell: Burton Hoyt Howell the Third!! Head of talent relations!! I have some work I need to do.
The kid pulls out a notebook and starts jotting something down as the camera cuts away to the next segment.
