The smell of fresh vinyl and new ink print permeates the air. The Classic Wrestling stage hands have just unravelled and installed a brand new promo backdrop inside the backstage area of the newly-remodeled Classic Arena.
The stage hands freeze for a moment, not knowing where the voice came from. Finally, they turn to their left. They see an average-sized man, tanned in skin-complexion, with stylish clothing and Maui Jim sunglasses on his face. He smiles as he approaches the stage hands.
“That is beautiful very much! May I?”
One of the stage hands puts his hands in the air and steps aside. This well-dressed man walks in front of the backdrop and turns around. He waits for a moment as his own personal cameraman sets up his equipment. After a moment, the cameraman points to the man and the man smiles underneath his Maui Jims.
“Buenos dias, amigos! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Carlos Ruiz! I am new professional wrestler for the Classic Wrestling. I am happy very much to be here! Carlos has done many thing in professional wrestling career, but no place ever feel like home to me. It is not until I hear about the type of environment that the Classic Wrestling would give to me that I feel like it was the right place for me! Episodio número uno of the Classic Wrestling is coming this week and Carlos is excited very much because they put me on the show! Bueno!”
Carlos smiles and rubs his hands together eagerly. He reaches up and lifts his Maui Jims off of his face before continuing.
“This is big honor for Carlos because there is only one fight that is not a part of the tournament for crowning Campeón del Mundo! It is Carlos Ruiz fighting with Señor Dos Pisos! That is Spanish for ‘two pieces’ or as you say in America ‘Double Decker.’ At first Carlos was not sure if Señor Dos Pisos was actual autobús or not. Carlos not think it would be safe or fair very much for the Classic Wrestling peoples to put Carlos in fight with actual autobús. I then find out that Señor Dos Pisos is person who is almost as big as autobús. He weigh four hundred pound! Carlos cannot believe this when I hear it!”
Carlos’ eyes are big and round as he thinks about the size of his opponent in astonishment.
“The good thing for Carlos is that I fight against many peoples in my wrestling career that were bigger very much than Carlos! I know that I can fight with Señor Dos Pisos because Carlos is good fighter in the wrestling ring! Si, this is true. Carlos is going to show the whole world when the Classic Wrestling debut on the RBTV televisión! Señor Dos Pisos, when you and Carlos step into the ring on the Classic Wrestling show, you are going to find out why Carlos Ruiz is former Campeón in many place before I come here. You are going to find out why Carlos Ruiz is one of the most popular wrestlers in all of España! And when we are done, I going to invite you to the locker room to share a bottle of fine Spanish wine with me! Because that is one thing Carlos always do. It does not matter if Carlos win or lose. I does not matter if Carlos like you or not like you. I am nice person and Carlos will always have the… how you say… hospitality! Señor Dos Pisos, I will see you in the ring! VIVA LA LUCHA!”
Carlos steps out of the shot as he slides his Maui Jims back onto his face. His personal cameraman packs up his belongings and follows Carlos out of the shot. The stage hands look at each other and shrug, going about their business.
