As we come back from a quick sponsor break we see Double Decker in the ring dancing to his music. “ Waiting for the Bus” by ZZ Top!
Harold Robbins: Already in the ring, weighing in at 400 lbs and a few tires… He is “The Big Greyhound” Doubleeee Decker!
“Bamboleo” by Gypsy Kings hits over the P.A. System and the crowd goes crazy for their Spanish Luchador!
Carlos Ruiz walks out from the back posing for the crowd in his leather jacket that is zipped halfway up, pink speedo wrestling trunks, pink boots, and Maui Jim sunglasses. He stops on the way to the ring a couple of times to take selfies with the crowd.
Robbins: Making his way to the ring from Madrid, Spain… weighing in at two hundred and twelve pounds… CARLOS RUIZ!
He slides into the ring and blows kisses to the adoring fans. He smiles as he removes his jacket and sunglasses and hands them to the ringside attendant.
As the bell rings Double Decker looks on at the smaller Ruiz and gives a throaty laugh. Ruiz slaps either shoulder and runs towards Double Decker. He is instantly stopped in his tracks. Double Decker laughs and points towards the ropes to begin him to attempt it again. Ruiz takes a deep breath and runs towards the ropes. Double Decker smiles once more as Ruiz pinballs off of him and falls flat on the mat. Double Decker bends down to grab the smaller Ruiz but he scurries under the big man’s legs.
Howley: That little Mexican is quicker than a jumping bean…..
Moss: He’s from Spain, so he’s a Spaniard.

Ruiz’s legs flail in the air, as Double Decker shakes him back and forth, before tossing him into the corner. Ruiz’s head hits the turnbuckle hard. Double Decker slowly paces to the opposite corner. He stomps a foot into the mat.
Howley: You don’t want to be on the road when the Bus gets moving.

Howley: Why would the Colombian want this to continue?
Moss: Spaniard. He’s from Spain.
Howley: Whatever, either way he’s an idiot.
Ruiz rolls out of the ring and to the floor. Holding his chest and stumbling to keep himself upright. Double Decker paces in the ring as the ref begins the count of Ruiz.
Moss: If Ruiz doesn’t get into the ring, he’s risking getting counted out.
Howley: Yeah and that would be the smartest thing he could do right now. The dumbest? Getting back into the ring.
As the ref gets to the eight count Double Decker begins to get frustrated and asks for the ref to stop, and holds the ropes open for his opponent. Ruiz waves him away and slides in under the bottom rope. Double Decker nods approvingly as Ruiz takes a deep breath and nods back at Double Decker. Ruiz goes for a chop to the big man. Double Decker is unfazed by the blow. Double Decker begs for another one. Ruiz obliges and with a loud crack Ruiz shakes his arm out as Double Decker shakes his head. Ruiz let off a flurry of four consecutive chops. Double Decker is taken aback for a second before grabbing Ruiz and squeezing the air out of the smaller man.
Howley: This is going to get uglier before it gets pretty.
Moss: I think you might be right.
Double Decker spreads his arms wide and with the force of all his might crushes Ruiz’s head. Ruiz stumbles backwards, and wobbles unfortunately into one of the corners. Double Decker shakes his head disappointingly and heads towards the opposite corner. One more stomp of the mat and Double Decker is rushing towards the corner.
Howley: This one is academic.
