Back to the ring we see the Ring Announcer preparing for the next matchup.
Howley: Well we know Vito Valentino is moving on in the tournament so far, but who else will keep moving up the ladder?
The house lights flicker as “Let It Rock” by Bon Jovi plays throughout the venue. The slow build of the guitar riff primes the crowd for the appearance of their hero in tights.
Harold Robbins: The next matchup is scheduled for one fall and is a FIRST ROUND MATCHUP for the Classic Wrestling REAL WORLD’S CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT!
At the songs apex, Harry Chest walks out on stage sporting his flashy smile and signature heroically caped attire.
He marches to the ring and misses most hand slaps with the fans. His hair is gelled back and his chest is pushed out with pride.
Robbins: Coming to the ring first, From Swan River, Manitoba, Canada…Weighing 241 Lbs… This is “The Every Dad!” HARRY CHEST!
A tuft of iconic chest hair protrudes from the top of his combat suit collar. The word ‘CHEST’ runs across his pectorals in fuzzy felt lettering.
Harry Chest ascends into the ring where his demeanor changes to a serious one.
Howley: Is this guy wearing an actual cape Moss?
Moss: That does appear to be the case.
The music fades out before “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode takes over. The lights die down a bit and begin to flash.
Robbins: And his opponent…
The fans boo before he even makes his way through the curtain.
Robbins: Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio… Weighing in at 243 Lbs… “The Saint!” Johnny Saint Nelson!
Through the curtain he comes, wearing ring gear, he slowly looks to both sides of the studio audience before looking to the ring and his opponent for the night. He points at Harry Chest before posing quickly for the crowd.
Moss: A Hometown guy ready to make his Classic Wrestling Debut. He didn’t exactly put the fans behind him with his promo this week!
Howley: That’s putting it mildly Moss, the man told everyone their sinners, he let them know he’s here to save Classic Wrestling from the culture. The odd thing is, I think he and Chest want the same thing, just in different ways!
Johnny Saint Nelson climbs into the ring and starts pulling off his entrance jacket. As he does he wastes no time and attacks a surprised Harry Chest.
The official rings the bell as JSN has pushed Harry Chest into his own corner and starts clobbering on him with big right hands. After a few hard shots, Chest is able to block one and comes roaring back out of the corner with some quick jabs. He circles around a slightly dazed Nelson before he winds up his arm and nails The Saint with a big right haymaker. The move sends JSN over the top rope and to the outside of the ring.
Moss: Woah! Harry Chest did not appreciate that surprise attack there Thunderbird!
Howley: What a big right hand, and now Saint Nelson can finally get that jacket off!
Indeed on the outside a frustrated Johnny Nelson throws his jacket on the floor and slaps the ring canvas. Back Inside Harry sticks our his signature chest and poses with his hands on his hips. The fans applaud loudly.
JSN now walks over to the commentary team.
Howley: Watch out here he comes! What’s going on Saint!?
JSN speaks into the mic.
Johnny Saint Nelson: He didn’t even give me a chance to get my ring jacket off.. What a cheap shot!
He moves to slide back inthe ring and Chest gives him space. The two jut their chests against one another in the center of the ring but the move sends JSN stumbling a few steps due to Chest’s big….Chest!
JSN swings a couple times but Harry is able to dodge them. Finally Everydad drops a boot in the gut of JSN and sends him off the ropes…
Moss: On the return now, and JSN takes a ride with the big back body drop! JSN right back up now and Chest catches him with an armbar! He drives down JSN to the mat.
The Saint complains to the referee who says it’s a legal hold. Saint tells him to make him take the cape off. No dice.
After a few moments of the armbar Chest lets go of the hold and pulls Nelson back to his feet. He moves to the turnbuckle and climbs it and begins to rain down punches on the head of JSN. The official does begin a count because the punches a slightly outside the rules using the ropes.
As the referee yells towards the face of Chest. JSN is able to slip an arm between the legs and bring it straight up!
Howley: OHHHH NO! Right in the Superbeans!
Moss: I don’t care who you are, caped crusader or not… that’s going to put you out of commission!
The official is very confused and sees Chest grab his…superbeans and fall to his knees. He shakes a finger towards Nelson who’s recovering and feigns innocence. JSN marches over and puts one arm under the arm of Harry and places it on the back of his head.
Moss: He’s going for his move! He’s got half of that Full Nelson Submission!
As he does Harry Chest flexes his chest with everything he’s got and grabs the other arm of JSN preventing him from locking in the move.
Howley: Not so fast!
The two of them are in a test of strength until finally Chest get the better of it. JSN realizes this and lets go of the Half Nelson. The fans cheer on Chest whos still down on his knees. JSN goes for a kick to the head but Chest ducks!
Moss: Johnny Saint Nelson misses the kick but uses his momentum to sit down on the neck of Chest. He’s reaching down and GRABS THE LEG OF CHEST and pulls it upwards!
Howley: Classic Stumppuller! This move pushes down on your neck and body while pulling up on the leg. Creates a ton of pain in your midsection and quad area. It’s a devastating move.
It isn’t long before it’s too Devestating and Chest has to give in.
DING DING DING
Robbins: Ladies and Gentlemen your winner by Submission! Johnny Saint Nelson!
“Personal Jesus” by Depeche mode comes back on full force.
Howley: What a match Moss! I thought Chest was going to pull that one out!
Moss: He put on a great fight but at the end of the day, the relentlessness of Nelson was just too much. Nelson moves on to face the winner of tonights Main Event! Shujin Yama vs Rich K Hunt! I hear Shujin Yama is backstage now, ready to talk about his upcoming opportunity! Let’s cut to Billy Fields.
Cut to backstage!
