The famous guitar solo opening of the Eagles’ classic “Life in the Fast Lane” hits the speakers and the crowd goes bananas! Vito “Metro” Valentino makes his way down to the ringside area, wearing a green, white, and red, short-legged singlet, with black fingerless gloves and white boots with the letters “VV” written in classic cursive handwriting on each side.
Robbins: The following match is scheduled for one fall, with a 10 minute time limit. Coming to the ring first…. From Brooklyn, New York…. VITO VALENTINO!
With a fist in the air, he stops at the steps where the roar of the crowd washes over him like a warm blanket.
Moss: The man who stepped up to challenge the REAL Worlds Champion earlier tonight, but earned nothing but a scoff in reply….
Howley: Yea but I got a feeling that’s not going to stop Vito from continuing to try!
After pounding the steps three times for good luck, he quickly gets into the ring, ascends a turnbuckle, and raises another fist for the crowd. Climbing back down, he stretches his arms, shoulders.
“Oh Canada” begins to play over the arena sound system. A single laser cast the shape of the Canadian flag in the center of the ring.
Howley: This guy brings his own special effects?
The Dewster, walks out from behind the curtain to the reaction of the crowd, mostly negatively excluding those with Canadian sense. Dewy attempts to find any potential Canadians on his way towards the ring.
Robbins: And his opponent, Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! This is “The Dew” DEWEY SMARTS!
Pausing for selfie’s and kissing the baby Canadians. The Dewster covers his ears and spits degrading remarks towards any Un-Canadians.
The two wrestlers meet in the middle of the ring and lock up. Dewey Smarts quickly takes the arm of Vito and twists it over his head and wrenches on it. The ring veteran Vito Valentino backs him into the ropes and the referee tells them to break it up. As Vito backs away Smarts points to his head and mocks the italian superstar. For his troubles, Vito hits him with a fist to the mush that sends Dewey flying down to the mat. The fans go nuts but the referee is quick to remind Vito that he can’t throw closed fists!
Moss: He clocked Dewey there, maybe a little too much for Referee Kevin Clady’s liking!
Howley: What did he expect? Running his mouth like that! He’s lucky there’s witnesses at all!
Vito now boots Dewey in the gut as he stands up and sends him off the ropes. He goes to lift him for his signature back breaker but Dewey stops his progress by holding onto the ropes. Dewey now half steps out of the ring shaking his head.
Howley: He had it scouted Moss! Vito thought he might make quick work of the new guy but not so fast!
Moss: Yea but it looks like he’s seen a ghost! He knows what was waiting for him!
Vito goes to grab Dewey and pull him back in, but since he’s on the ropes, the official gets between them once more. Now frustrated, Valentino pushes towards him anyway. Dewey reaches over the referee and pokes Vito in the eye as he tries to attack, sending the cabby back away once more.
Dewey Smarts goes to the center of the ring and sends Vito off the ropes this time. He bends over, looking for the back body drop. Valentino knows that trick, and stops, grabs the head of Smarts, and sends him crashing to his back with a head whip.
Moss: Turnabout is fair play Thunderbird!
Howley: It’s a wrestling match of course it is!
Moss: Well don’t look now but Vito got him right where he wants him! Everytime Dewey gets back up, he’s catching strikes from Valentino! Left! Right! And the fans are eating this up!
Dewey goes down and quickly Vito goes for the legs, looking for the Metro Avenue Deathlock. Smarts panics and is able to escape, he rolls out of the ring to collect himself. As he walks, Vito slides out behind him. Dewey seems him and a chase ensues around the ring. Dewey slides in, and Vito after him. Smarts quickly jumps on the back of Vito and starts dropping elbows and knees driving him down to the canvas. Then Dewey grabs the top rope and uses it for leverage as he stomps repeatedly. Vito rolls away from the stomps towards the middle of the ring. Seeing his opportunity, Dewey Smarts bounces off the ropes. He jumps!
Moss: The Dew Drop!
Howley: HE MISSED! He missed the leg drop!
Vito gets up quickly, as Dewey holds his back, still in a seated position. Vito grabs the legs of Smarts and pulls on them before stepping through. He turns over and locks in his hold.
Moss: THERE IT IS! The Metro Avenue Deathlock is dialed in!
Kevin Clady slides over to Dewey who’s already screaming. It isn’t long before he quits to the referee by nodding his head up and down, screaming yes to his inquiries.
Vito lets go of the hold as soon as he hears the bell and raises his arms up in the air in victory!
Robbins: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner by Submission, VITO VALENTINO~!
Vito walks over to where Dewey Smarts is, he’s sitting up at this point. THe official tries to keep them a safe distance apart at first. Then Vito reaches down with a hand to help Dewey up.
Dewey looks at his hand, and then the crowd. They cheer them on. Smarts has other ideas. He smacks the hand away and rolls out of the ring underneath the bottom rope. Limping a little he makes his way to the back.
“Life in the Fastlane” Hits on the PA system and Vito celebrates in the ring anyway.
Moss: There you have it folks, the man who challenged our REAL Worlds Champion earlier tonight. Picks up a win against a great new talent to Classic Wrestling.
Howley: You’re right Moss, Dewey might have the Smarts, but he’s going to need more than that to put away Vito Valentino!
Moss: Wait what’s this?
Sliding into the ring behind Vito is Alex Bruder. He has the REAL Worlds Championship in his hands and as Vito turns around to celebrate, Alex Bruder plants the championship right between the eyes of Valentino. He hits the mat hard, holding his head immediately.
Howley: The Champion just leveled the competition Moss!
Moss: Bruder hit him right in the face! He could need reconstructive surgery after that!
Bruder stands up and holds the championship up high before leaving the ring and headed for the back.
