Opening in front of a Classic Wrestling banner, “Big” Joe Geoue stands front and center.
Geoue: Ladies and gentlemen, at this time allow me to welcome the Premier American Champion, Shujin Yama, and his associate, Sensei Abe Lincoln.
The sound echoes across the speaker system once again as the mammoth Oni of Oblivion enters the frame with the championship belt across his shoulder, and his seedy manager following. Yama grimaces as he looks upon the surroundings and inaudibly growls something to Lincoln. Immediately the foul advisor starts barking orders and from off screen a troop of menservants rush into the stage and start ripping down the Classic Wrestling banner
Geoue: Just what do you think you’re doing?!
“Big” Joe moves to intervene, but not much moves past the brick wall that is Shujin Yama. With his massive arms crossed in front of him, Yama glares at the interviewer and the worker bees finish up their work.
In place of the Classic Wrestling banner, a gigantic Japanese flag has been raised. Lincoln beams while looking at it. Yama remains typically stoic.
Geoue: What makes you think you can come in here and disrespect this fine federation like that?
Lincoln: Disrespect?! DISRESPECT?! Let me tell you of disrespect. Disrespect is everything Shujin Yama has experienced in Classic Wrestling to date. Disrespect is fast count out that referee made last week against Holo-San. Disrespect is Frank-San constantly sticking his disgusting, slop-covered nose in Shujin Yama’s business. Shujin Yama is longest reigning champion in Classic Wrestling history! Shujin Yama does not need to respect Classic Wrestling, Classic Wrestling needs to respect Shujin Yama!
Geoue: Well if you’re wanting respect, I don’t think you’re going to get it from King Kong Frank. After the disrespect–
Lincoln glares at “Big” Joe, who knew exactly what he was doing and continues speaking.
Geoue: –you and your client showed him on the last episode of Classic Wrestling, I had a chance to catch up with him earlier tonight where he laid out a challenge to meet your client, Shujin Yana at Capital Clash for the Premier American Championship. And to top it off, he wants it to be a Flag Match!
He spits on “Big” Joe’s shoes, and for years to come people will debate whether that made Shujin Yama crack a smile.
Lincoln: Shujin Yama is fighting champion!
Geoue: Well then why haven’t Scott Hunter and Holo Make received title shots after beating him?
Lincoln: Because they do not deserve championship after cheating Shujin Yama out of victory!!! But Frank-San? Frank-San does not deserve championship because he, as you Americans would say, sucks. Frank-San wants title shot? Shujin Yama says ‘no’.
Geoue: WHAT?!? You’re rejecting King King Frank’s request?!
A meaty paw clamps down on Sensei Lincoln’s shoulder. He turns back and the hellish eyes of the current champ send a very clear message to his advocate.
He bows his head.
Lincoln: Shujin Yama is giving Champion. Shujin Yama is… heh… true American hero. Frank-San can have his shot at Shujin Yama. Frank-San can have his flag match too. For Shujin Yama already metaphorically tore American flag from his heart, and raised up flag of his new homeland.
With reverence, Lincoln looks back at the Japanese flag that his servants had raised behind him.
Lincoln: At Capital Clash, Shujin Yama gets to do it literally too.
Geoue: There you have it, folks! The match is official! The Premier American Championship will be on the line as the champion Shujin Yama defends against King Kong Frank! Sunday! Two weeks from today! At Capital Clash!
