The instrumental version of “Aloha ‘Oe” by Neverland in Ashes 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.
Moss: We’ve got an interesting matchup this week Thunderbird, apparently Ricky Broadway asked for this match personally after last week Holo Make interfered in his match with Frank Chase!
Howley: Interfered? He destroyed both guys and left a path of smoke in his path… Ricky Broadway has got to be nuts!
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.
Ricky Broadway: Where it began, I can’t begin to know when But then I know it’s growing strong
The guitar begins to play as Ricky Broadway comes through the curtain with microphone in hand.
Ricky Broadway: Wasn’t the spring And spring became the summer Who’d have believe you’d come along
He moves towards the fans who chuckle a bit at the song choice. They sing along anyway. Broadway entertaines with some light dancing.
Ricky Broadway: Hands, touching hands, reaching out Touching me, touching you. SWEET CAROLINE!
Fans: BAH BAH BAAAAAAH!
Robbins: Introducing first, from New York City, New York… Weighing 215 Lbs… This is RICKY BROADWAY!
The fans give him a mixed reaction as he dances in a small circle.
Robbins: and his opponent. From Hawaii, 376 Lbs… This is HOLO MAKE!
The towering Holo Make slowly walks to the center of the ring and eggs Broadway to engage with him. Holo holds a hand up high in the air, Broadway tentatively reaches up and grabs it with his own. The two men then fight for position as they grab their other hands together. Holo extends both hands into the air and lifts Broadway off the mat, but Rick was able to get a kick in the gut of the bigger man. It didn’t deter Holo at all, so Rick Tried another, and then a third one before Holo had to get him back on the ground. With their footing Rick pulls his hand right away and fires off a shot towards Holo. It staggers the big man momentarily. Broadway nails him again, this time backing the big man into the ropes. Broadway tries to whip Holo but is quickly reversed, sending Rick into the ropes to rebound. Broadway goes for a clothesline but Holo doesn’t budge and just viscerally screams at Rick. Broadway runs the ropes and this time goes for a leaping clothesline and takes the big man down to the mat. Rick leaps on the back of Holo as he was trying to get to his feet and applies a sleeper hold. Spreading his legs to make it more difficult to break the hold.
Moss: Rick Was able to take the big man down and is doing the smart thing keeping him grounded.
Howley: He isn’t going to win a slug fest with a human built like Holo.
Moss: That’s the truth. He steam rolled the man last time he was out here.
Rick begs the ref to check Holo, but as he reaches for his arm Holo slowly begins to lift himself off of the mat. Rick holds on to the sleeper hold, Holo is visibly worn. Rick slides off of his back and chops the knee of Holo. Capitalizing on the downed opponent, Rick quickly DDT’s Holo to the mat. Rolling him over Rick goes for the cover.
Holo powers out sending Rick into the air and landing face first onto the mat.
Moss: That’s the kind of power you can expect from Holo Make!
Howley: I Fear for anyone that has to step into ring with him on a bad day.
Moss: Do you think he has many good days?
Howley: For the sake of Classic Wrestling I sure hope so.
Holo gets to his feet as Rick once again goes for a second chop block of Holo’s knee, but at the last second Holo lifts his leg and Rick lands directly under him. One huge stomp to the small of Rick’s back has him in pain. Holo then presses his foot on his back and puts all his weight on it. The ref slides into position and asks Rick If he wants to give up, and he doesn’t. Holo releases the pressure and lifts Rick up by the hair. Swinging his arms wildly Rick accidentally hits the ref, who quickly turns around and checks his face. Sensing the moment Rick drops down to a knee and low blows Holo, who hunches over.
Howley: All is fair in love and war!
Moss: A blatant low blow.
Howley: How can it be blatant if the ref didn’t see it? Think Mossy!
Moss: Now I’m not sure he didn’t hit the ref on purpose l!
Rick thumbs Holo in the eye and runs the ropes once again. As he leaps towards Holo he is caught, and immediately slammed to the mat is a sidewalk slam. Holo shakes his head and gets to his feet he gets Rick into a seated position at his feet. He raises a closed fist high in the air and cold cocks Broadway on the top of the head sending him to the mat in a crumpled heap.
Moss: Well this isn’t going to be pretty.
Howley: You can say that again.
Holo stalks Rick as he is slow to get to his feet. A dazed Broadway turns around and is met by a running headbutt to the chest.
Moss: AINA I KA PONO! That’s twice in two weeks. Holo has made his point.
Howley: Hit it flush and did you see how he got off the mat for that? I’m impressed.
Holo goes for the pin, hooking both legs.
He rolls off of Broadway and looks directly at the crowd with purpose. Grabbing the top rope he pulls himself up, and over it. Not waiting for the Referee to raise his hand in victory.
Moss: An impressive win from Holo Make in this one for sure!
Howley: I’m glad we got to see more out of Broadway though this week, he has a future here in Classic Wrestling!
Robbins: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner by pinfall…. HOLO MAKE!
