Cut to ringside.
Moss: Alright ladies and gentlemen it’s time for our main event of the Evening and to find out who’s moving on in the REAL WORLDS CHAMPIONSHIP Tournament!
Howley: We don’t know what kind of shape Shujin Yama is in, but we’re about to find out!
Moss: Was the attack by Lord Colossus enough? Rich K Hunt is about to find out!
The crowd begins to boo as the opening for Barret Strong’s ‘Money (That’s what I want)’ begins to play through the speakers. The boo’s get louder as THE Rich K. Hunt steps out from behind the curtain wearing his douchiest of grins.
Robbins: Coming to the ring first for our final FIRST ROUND MATCH of the evening! Hailing from Manchester, England. He is THE RICH K HUNT!
He stands there for a moment, looking around at the crowd before raising his arms in the air. When he does so, thousands of fake dollar bills begin to reign down from the ceiling.
As the fans try to grab the fake dollar bills, he makes his way to the ring knowing the disappointment they were going to feel when they realize it’s not real money.
Moss: Of course Hunt put the Bounty out looking for someone’s help tonight with Shujin Yama! Lord Colossus answered the call, and attacked Shujin Yama earlier tonight with a chair!
The Japanese National anthem begins playing as Sensei Abe Lincoln steps out onto the stage waving a Japanese flag.
Shujin Yama follows behind, in a sparkly white robe bedazzled in red diamantes. He limps a little as he walks. Clearly favoring his lower back. They march down to the ring, Yama paying no attention to the crowd while Sensei Lincoln laughs and taunts them.
Robbins: And his opponent… weighing in at 469 lbs…. From Main Street USA! This is SHUJIN YAMA!
Arriving to the ring, Sensei Lincoln walks up the steps and holds the middle rope down for Yama to step through. He bows in the centre of the ring, as Sensei Lincoln unhooks Yama’s robe.
Once freed, he raises his left leg and drops into a dramatic sumo pose while shouting something incomprehensible to both English- and Japanese-speaking audiences. He stares daggers through Rich K Hunt as the match gets underway.
The Bell rings.
Shujin steps towards Hunt right away but Rich is quick to stick his head through the ropes and pull the referee between them. Yama backs up a couple steps as Hunt enters the ring once more. Shujin steps towards him again and this time he dips all the way to the ring floor to avoid the sumo wrestler. Pointing to his head Rich implies he’s the smartest man in the room. Yama uses his height to reach over the top rope and grap Hunt by the hair and pull him back onto the ring apron. A panicked Hunt flails wildly, only to have Yama pull him over the top rope and back into the ring.
Moss: What an incredible display of strength!
Howley: A angry man can do amazing things, he’s just gotta keep his emotions in check Moss.
Yama body slams Hunt to the mat, before picking him up and slamming him again.
Moss: One more for extra measure.
Howley: Yea but look at him Patrick, each slam is taking it out of the big man too.
Indeed Yama holds his back and grimaces after the second slam, Results of the chair shot.
Much to the delight of Sensei Abe Lincoln, Yama takes control of the match for several minutes, running Hunt through each turnbuckle post and working on the chest and back of Hunt. Yama seems to slow down after the onslaught.
Shujin slaps on a bearhug, and he’s in the middle of the ring.
Howley: Hunt can’t get to the ropes here what’s he going to do!? There’s no way he’s moving Big Yama.
Moss: I love it when you call him Big Yama!
Howley: Where did they find you Moss….
The official asks Hunt if he wants to give in. He shakes his head wildly. Finally he has it. He pokes Yama in the eyes with two fingers. The big man lets go and reaches for his face. He’s temporarily blinded.The referee threatens disqualification if Hunt does it again. He feigns innocence.
Moss: He just eyepoked him!
Howley: This isn’t just for survival, this is for the REAL WORLDS CHAMPIONSHIP!
Big dropkick from Rich K Hunt takes Yama off his feat for the first time. The ring shakes on impact. The crowd wows at the movement. Of course Rich thinks they are wowwing at him and takes a bow.
He moves to the second rope and comes off with a forward elbow drop that lands flush against the face of Yama. He stands up confidently and calls for the end!
Rich K Hunt: YAMA… YOUR MARKET IS ABOUT TO CRASH!
Shujin Yama is slowly getting up, Rich moves in to help him up faster. Meanwhile the curtain opens and a large looming figure comes walking towards the ring.
Moss: Who is this!?
Howley: IT’S LORD COLOSSUS!
He marches over to the ring and slams a fist down on the apron. Hunt turns and almost lets out a scream. Colossus rubs two of his fingers together.
Howley: He’s here to collect on the bounty that Rich K Hunt put forward earlier this week Moss!
Rich K Hunt: THE DEAL IS WHEN I WIN YOU IDIOT!
Lord Colossus now pulls himself to the ring apron and steps over the top rope.
The official gets in his way and tries to throw him out. Colossus looks down at him from his 7’0 frame. The official second guesses his decision and gets the hell out of dodge.
Hunt is backing down as Colossus comes at him. Suddenly we hear a familiar sound that stops Colossus in his tracks. The slap and drag of steel chains on the floor. From the entrance way comes King Kong Frank swinging the chain wildly and running full speed for the ring. The fans in the arena cheer loud for King Kong as he hits his slide. He stands up and swings the chain as wide as he can as he spins in a circle as well. When he comes to a stop he finds hes all alone in the ring and everyone else has bailed outside. The fans in the Studio erupt! Frank looks around each way and then sees Colossus watching him on the outside. Frank takes off after him!
Howley: Looks like Colossus is out of here! He wants no part of King Kong Frank and the business end of that chain!
Moss: The official is letting the match continue since no one was actually struck!
Outside the ring Hunt and Yama meet and Yama uses all his power to push Hunt through the air and lands hard on the conrete outside the ring. Yama walks over to him, Rolls him into the ring, before climbing to the second rope himself.
Howley: WATCH OUT HUNT!
SPLAT! Shujin Yama lands the banzai drop on Rich K Hunt square in the chest. The referee slides into position and makes the count.
The bell rings!
Howley: He didn’t watch out fast enough Moss!
Robbins: Ladies and Gentlemen here is your winner by pinfall… SHUJIN YAMA!
The Japanese national anthem starts playing in the arena. Sensei Abe Lincoln gets in the ring and celebrates with Yama who doesn’t want any part of the referee himself.
Hunt rolls to the floor holding his chest.
We cut to the commentary team.
Moss: Ladies and Gentlemen what a night we had! We now know that in a few short weeks were going to see… “All Business” Alex Bruder vs “Metro” Vito Valentino in Round 2!
Howley: Don’t forget Moss! We’re also going to see Johnny Saint Nelson vs the winner we JUST saw Shujin Yama in Round 2 also!
