“Burning Heart” by Survivor plays over the PA system, and after a few beats Scott Hunter appears through the curtain to the massive applause of the crowd. Hunter poses at the top of the ramp for a moment before making his way down the ramp.
Robbins: Introducing first from Miami Florida, weighing in at Two Hundred and Forty Five pounds. He is SCOTTTTTTTT HUNNNNNNTER!
Hunter continues down the ramp, high diving fans on his way down. As he approaches the ring he climbs up the stairs quickly and poses once again before climbing into the ring. Hunter rushes over to his corner and climbs again, as the crowd is firmly behind him. As he hops down he gets checked by the referee.
Moss: Scott Hunter has been with us for a long time and tonight he gets his opportunity to….
Before Moss could finish “Wherever I May Roam” by Metallica starts to play and The Pale Rider himself, Holo Make, steps out onto the stage. He looks out at the crowd, eyes wide as if taking in the people around him. He stalks down to the ring, spooking some of the audience members who get too close. Otherwise, his eyes are focused on the ring with interest.
Robbins: And his opponent from A Lost island In the Pacific, weighing it at Three Hundred and Seventy Four pounds….. He is The Pale Rider…. HOLLLLLOOOO MAAAAKKKKKKEEE!
Once he reaches ringside, Holo Make climbs onto the steps, crawling onto the apron and entering the ring. He looks to the nearest camera and grabs it. He brings it to his face, shouting “I ka mōʻī wahine ʻo Lili’uokalani” into it before shoving it back. Holo begins to pace around the ring, waiting impatiently as the ref begins to check him as well.
Moss: This one is going to be interesting. Scott Hunter has been looking for a big win and tonight he can become the Number one contender for the Premier American Championship.
Howley: Unfortunately he’s gotta go through a beast of a man like Holo Make to get there.
Moss: Well both men are in the ring just waiting for….
Moss: That, let’s get to the action!
Once the bell rings Holo cracks his neck and begins to stalk the smaller Hunter. Hunter keeps his distance from the massive Holo Make. Using his speed to his advantage Hunter slides out under the bottom rope and waits for Holo to make a move. It didn’t take long for Hunter to realize this wasn’t going to work so he slowly got into the ring, keeping an eye on Holo the entire time. Holo grabs at Hunter who rolls out of the way and into the middle of the ring and behind Holo. Hunter kicks the back of Holo’s leg a few times before Holo spins around and swings at Hunter.
Moss: Hunter knows he has to take out the legs of the Bigger Holo Make, and avoid large swings.
Howley: Like he did right there. He’s gotta use his speed to his advantage.
Hunter ducks the strike and kicks the side of Holo’s right leg. Staggering Holo for a moment, which was long enough for Hunter to throw an elbow to the side of Holo’s face. Still staggered Holo tries to brush the elbow off, but when he looks up he sees a flying Hunter take him down to the mat with a leaping cross body, Hunter stays on top for a pin.
Moss: Holo Make made that look easy.
Howley: Because it was. That wasn’t going to get the job done and we all know that.
Holo gets out of the pin almost immediately, but is met by a barrage of stomps and kicks as he tries to get to his feet. On all fours Holo senses relief for a brief moment as Hunter runs at him again and drop kicks him in the side of the head. Holo reels from the blow and rolls out of the ring and onto the floor.
Moss: This looks like what Hunter wanted all along. Remember he tried to goad the bigger man outside.
Howley: Just remember, you get what you receive but that doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences.
Hunter climbs onto the apron and leaps off towards a now standing Holo. The move backfires as Holo grabs Hunter and walks him around the ring, limping noticeably, before slamming him onto the ground. Holo uses the ring for balance and stands on the chest of Hunter outside of the ring.
Moss: Holo is crushing the chest of Hunter and bad knee and all that’s a lot of man on your chest.
Howley: Too easy.
Moss: Grow up.
The ref begins to count but it doesn’t matter, Holo stays on top of Hunter until the six count before picking him up and throwing him under the bottom rope into the ring. Holo takes a moment to shake out his leg and decides to use the ring steps to get into the ring. Hunter waits for his moment and the second Holo has one foot into the ring he launches himself at it and drives his shoulder into it.
Moss: Hunter stays on the leg of Holo.
Howley: It’s the target he set on since the beginning of the match and it’s beginning to pay dividends. Holo is clearly slowed by this.
Moss: It was smart to go after the leg and keep up on it.
Holo fights to get back into the ring but Hunter looks ravenous on the leg, punching it over and over again. Holo gets into the ring and manages to shake Hunter off. As Hunter gets to his feet, Holo unfortunately has his back to him. Hunter takes out the leg of Holo with a chop block to the back of his bad knee. Hunter stays on the attack and rolls Holo over, holding his leg Hunter drives an elbow to the knee. Wrenching down and pulling back.
Moss: That leg has to be primed by now.
Howley: I agree, it can’t be long before…
Moss: There it is!
Hunter doesn’t stop there he signals to the crowd that it’s time, and as he gets to his feet and steps through Holo plants a foot on his backside and shoves him clear across the ring. Holo uses the ropes to get to his feet as Hunter collects himself as well. Hunter is first to react and rushes towards Holo.
Moss: Mere seconds after flying halfway to California, Hunter returns and is met by a massive boot.
Howley: But you can see the damage done to the knee of Holo Make clearly hampering his abilities.
But is met by a massive boot to the face, however Holo crumbles to the mat as well after the move. Holo manages to get an arm across the chest of Hunter.
Moss: Almost. We almost had a winner.
Howley: That was closer than I expected.
Hunter kicks out. Holo begins to rub and smack his knee as Hunter gets the cobwebs out of his head. Both men take their time getting to their feet, but Hunter is the first to react. Rushing at Holo, but is scooped up at the last possible second for a massive sidewalk slam.
Moss: The knee of Holo didn’t make a difference there, Hunter is laid out flat in the middle of the ring.
Howley: Holo still isn’t in the best shape either, using the ropes and corner to get to his feet.
Holo gets to his feet and stands in the corner waiting for Hunter to get to his feet. Once he does, Holo takes off towards Hunter. As he turns around Holo has already left his feet and it was too late.
Moss: Aina I Ka Pono!!!
Holo hooks the legs as the ref counts.
Howley: You can count to a hundred, this is over.
Robbins: The winner of this match VIA pinfall, and the New Number One Contender for the Premier American Championship… HOLO MAKE!!!
