“Flying High Again” by Ozzy Osbourne hits on the Studio speakers.
The CLASSIC Wrestling splash logo explodes onto your television screen as the music screeches onward at a dizzying pace. Still shots taken from the last two episodes of Classic Wrestling TV rotate across the screen in a dazzling display of audio-visual excellence! A quick flash brings the camera inside of the Classic Wrestling Studio to a crane-shot showing the pristine ring, the iconic television set, and the jam-packed bleachers full of fans placed just on the other side of the ring. The fans do their part to get the show off to a rock solid start by doing what they do best…
Losing their entire minds!
As the crowd dies down the camera lands on Otto Price at his podium. He stands poised in a suit and tie, his large round glasses reflect a bit of the light. He smiles and brings the microphone up to his mouth, ready to talk to the camera. .
Otto Price: Welcome to another action packed edition of Classic Wrestling here on RBTV, and THANK YOU for tuning in! I”m Otto Price, the Host of Classic Wrestling, and we’ve got some HUGE matchups for you fine folks tonight!
We cut over to the commentary table.
Price: Here are my colleagues, Patrick Moss, and Joel “Thunderbird” Howley
The fans cheer again.
Moss: Welcome back Classic Wrestling fans! We’re excited to be back on your television sets!
Howley: That’s right Moss, you can never have too much THUNDERBIRD in your life!
Howley flexes for the camera before we return to Otto Price.
Price: That’s right, we’ve got TWO more tournament matches in the quest for the REAL WORLDS CHAMPIONSHIP! “Feral” Freddy Kilgore will go one on one with Rush Starling, as well as Lord Colossus vs the cunning Randall Schwartz! We’ve got a big tag team match when the Amazing Amerettos go up against the debuting Surf Express Bro, and a few more surprises up our sleeves. So stay tuned for those great contests!
He switches gears.
Price: Now as many of you may know, Earlier this week we got some big news from upstairs. That the Tag Team Championships would be revealed tonight! Well we’ve got them right here!
Two ladies in long sparkling dresses come out holding one championship each. The hold the title up where they can be seen as they walk. The fans in attendance get excited once more. They end up on either side of Otto whose face goes red. They set the championships down on the podium so that they display nicely.
Price: There you have it ladies and gentlemen, a fine prize indeed! Just look at those beautiful championships! Now I just got word from the back before coming out here, that I can confirm, Tonights tag team match will be a qualifier for the Tag Team Championship match at our first big Pay Per View, SLAM-A-THON! Coming to you live in August!
Howley: What sources does he have that I don’t Moss? Who’s Otto Price talking to, that’s what I wanna know!
Price: We’re headed to the Gund Arena for the biggest show in the brief history of Classic Wrestling. I know Tickets have gone on sale, and i’ve heard it’s been crazy down at the box office, so fan’s do not delay, pick up your tickets for Slam–A-Thon right now!
The Foreign Legion come through the curtain and head over to where Otto Price is talking. He doesn’t even see them coming, but the fans quickly begin to boo. He finally sees them.
Price: Oh, What is the meaning of this?
Mushigahara, Leon Van Zandt, and their manager now stand beside the podium.
Dante: What a FARCE of an announcement, Otto Price. You come out here, with these BEAUTIFUL championship belts, and you don’t extend the chance to compete for them to, as was proven the last time Classic Wrestling held court here, THE dominant force of Classic Wrestling?!
The leader of the Foreign Legion shakes his head.
Dante: Pitiful. A championship should be in the hands often strongest. The BEST. And it is only fitting that the BEST tag team in Classic Wrestling simply TAKES the crown for itself. Mushi? Leon?
The brutes of the Foreign Legion look to their leader, who simply makes a simple whistle and gestures raising a finger upward, after which the global talents smile and simply take the straps from the podium.
Moss: Hey they can’t do that!
Price: What do you think you’re doing!?
Dante: Well, Otto, my boy, if you have a problem with that, you can still have your big qualifying match tonight, and have them face us at Slam-A-Thon! For now though? You can just be grateful for this moment of basking in the glory of YOUR Classic Wrestling tag team champions.
Leon in particular is looking at his newly-pinched strap, which is slung over his shoulder, and nodding with approval, before the walk off with the championship. The fans watching live boo loudly and call for them to come back, but to no avail. Otto looks at them before looking back at the camera… He’s clearly shaken up.
Price: Well everyone, I don’t know what to make of what just happened, lets…we’ll be right back after a word from these great sponsors!
Cut to commercial.
