The Gypsy Kings’ “Bamboleo” plays and the fans begin cheering like crazy as they all know who is about to make his way out from behind the curtain!
Moss: Listen to this crowd! They love this guy!
Howley: I don’t see the big deal with this kid, personally. But c’est la vie.
Carlos comes running through the curtains, blasting them open and jumps to the center of the stage. Looking out at all of the fans in attendance, Carlos claps and raises his arm as if to say “Yeah!!!”. Sprinting the rest of the way down to the ring, Carlos slides into the ring then forward flips to his feet with great agility!
Robbins: Coming to the ring first! From Madrid, Spain, weighing in at 212 lbs…. The Spanish Luchador… CARLOOOOOOOS RUIIIIIIIIIIIIZ!
Moss: You don’t see the “big deal” with this kid, Howley? Sure. It’s not like he’s undefeated or so- oh wait.
Howley: Yeah, yeah. He won’t let you forget it either! Along with his whining about not being put on the last Episode of Classic Wrestling TV.
Carlos swivels his hips as he gets in the ring. A smile from ear to ear, he claps back towards the fans, thanking them for the warm welcome.
“Hello It’s Me” by Tod Rudgren hits the PA, and out comes one of Classic Wrestling’s newest competitors, The Undercover Lover. He makes his way through the curtain with his satin ring robe untied and his arms opened wide.
Robbins: And his opponent, from The City Of Love, New Orleans, LA… weighing in at 225 lbs… he is… THE… UNDERCOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRR… LOVEEEEEEERRRRR!
Lover stops his spin, facing the camera and looks over all of the women in attendance, clutching his heart with surprise. He then stops, rubs his eyes, and waves them off to a chorus of boos.
Moss: This Undercover Lover’s kind of a jerk, isn’t he?
Howley: Eh. I’ve seen worse attitudes
Lover heads up the ring steps and races across to the ring apron. Then, giving the audience one last look, he steps between the ropes. Looking at Carlos, he sarcastically blows the Spanish Luchador a kiss as he disrobes, much to the delight of the ladies in attendance.
Referee Spencer Fuller calls for the bell and this one is under way!
DING! DING!! DING!!!
Carlos wastes no time whatsoever and flies forward with a dropkick… but Undercover Lover sidesteps it! Carlos up right after and Lover goes for a clothesline. Carlos ducks, grabs both of Lover’s arms and pulls him down to the mat with backslide! Carlos digs the toes of his boots into the canvas for added leverage. Spencer’s in position!
Lover kicks out of the surprise pin attempt and rolls out of the ring to regroup.
Moss: Big surprise that Undercover Lover is out of the ring already.
Howley: He was caught off guard and needed to gain his bearings again! You can’t fault a competitor for trying to play it smart. Especially coming off a loss like he has!
Carlos motions for Undercover Lover to get back in the ring, but he shakes his head and refuses. Having enough of the stalling, Carlos slides out of the ring and chases him! Undercover Lover runs around the ring, forcing Carlos to give chase. Lover slides back in the ring and turns around. Carlos slides in after him, but is immediately met with an elbow drop to the back! Lover stands back up and points to his head with a giant smirk on his face.
Moss: Like him or not, that was a brilliant move by Undercover Lover.
Howley: Can’t believe that dummy Carlos fell for that! Hahaha!!
Lover follows it up with another elbow drop to the back. Then, turning him over, Lover looks at the crowd before dropping a third elbow drop, this time connecting across Carlos’ sternum! Making the lateral press, Lover purses his lips to make kissy faces at the crowd.
Moss: He’s got h- nope! Only two!
Howley: That was a nice series of elbow drops. Surprised Carlos managed to kick out.
Spencer assures everyone he only counted two. As soon as Carlos shoulders out of the pin attempt, Lover immediately grabs his head for a side headlock. Squeezing and wrenching on the Spanish Luchador, Undercover Lover taunts the crowd and yells at Spencer to check Carlos and see if he gives up. Carlos wags his finger, however, and quickly gets to his knees. With great speed and agility, Carlos rolls forward, causing Lover to lose his grip on the side headlock and stumble to his knees. Lover is back up to his feet and the supremely acrobatically gifted Carlos is there with a flying headscissors that flips Lover forwards on the mat.
Moss: Wow! That was a beautifully executed flying headscissors!
Howley: I’ll give the little whiner his due there.
Waiting for Lover to get back to his feet, Carlos runs into the ropes for some momentum. As soon as Lover is up, Carlos connects with a spinning lariat!
Moss: Lover is folded up like an accordion! Things aren’t looking good for the newcomer!
Carlos hops up to the second rope and measures Undercover Lover up for something. As soon as Lover is up, Carlos flies forward and connects with a dropkick from the second turnbuckle!
Howley: He caught him flush on the chin!
Spencer is right there as Carlos drops to hook a leg!
Thr- NO! Undercover Lover kicks out!
Moss: I can’t believe Lover kicked out! How tough is this guy?!
Howley: I told ya! Don’t sleep on this kid!
Lifting his arms up for the crowd to get to their feet, Carlos hunches down and lightly taps his foot on the mat.
Moss: Carlos is looking for the Spanish Eyes!
Howley: Oh man, I don’t like Lover’s chances here.
Lover is up and Carlos goes for the superkick… but Undercover Lover punches him straight in the heart! Carlos is DOWN before he can even get his leg up for the superkick! Picking Carlos up, who is clutching his chest in agony, is at the mercy of Undercover Lover, who sets him up with a hammerlock. Pulling his arm back, he smashes it directly into the heart of Carlos!
Moss: The Heart Stopper!
Howley: That’s it! He nailed it!
Lover drops down and hooks both legs for the deep cover..
Spencer calls for the bell!
Ding! Ding!! Ding!!!
Robbins: The winner of this match via pinfall.. UNDERCOVEEEEER LOOOOOOOVEEEER!!!
Moss: I can’t BELIEVE it!! Carlos Ruiz has been beaten in Classic Wrestling!!
Howley: I told you, Moss! I told you!! Everyone underestimated Undercover Lover going into this one and what happened? He defeats one of the last two undefeated men on the roster! This kid has a big future ahead of him in Classic Wrestling!
