“Back In Black” by ACDC Plays loudly over the PA System, but this week the studio is fairly dark. This week there are no fans jumping up and down in the bleachers, no clapping, signs, or otherwise. Instead it’s fairly quiet as a single spotlight highlights the center of the ring. Instead we see The Host with the Most, Otto Price stepping through the ropes with a microphone in hand. A brief glance over at the commentary booth shows us that even the steady duo of Patrick Moss and Joel “Thunderbird” Howley are not on the studio floor this evening. Back to the ring and back to Otto Price who now addresses the fans at home as the camera comes to a stop on him.
Otto Price: Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to the sixteenth airing of Classic Wrestling here on RBTV. We want to thank our awesome station affiliate for all the support we’ve recieved the past year! Tonight we’re bringing you something a little different, something out of the ordinary.
He pauses where usually fans would react or clap, this time there’s silence.
Otto Price: Tonight we don’t have any matches lined up for you, we don’t have an exciting main event that’s going to rock your socks off, instead we’ve got a look at the minds and thoughts of each of your favorite Classic Superstars! We’ve got interviews, We’ve got backstage recordings, and much much more. We decided to let the Classic Wrestling fans in for free tonight… so we can all get ready for CAPITAL CLASH TOGETHER!
The lights hit in all corners of the studio, and in pour the fans from the doors to find their seats. They race down to the front row, clamoring for the closest seats. The Capital Clash Logo fills our screen as they do.
