Something about the professional wrestling business tended to make things between athletes personal. Whether it was a family affair, or a guy who beat you up in the past, everyone seemed to have a reason to hold a grudge. All these elements helped draw the attention of the Classic Wrestling fans. When you have every fan watching one show, it tends to bring out the best in everyone.
Larry Rockfield: Twinkle Twinkle BABY!!!….I suppose I should try to start hyping myself up right about now right? The people want the Diamond to start huffin and puffin about how I’ll be the next big thing in Classic Wrestling. Tell ya my name and tell ya not to forget, because one day I’ll be a super star.
Before any image is seen, Larry’s voice is heard. The scene looks to be inside a poorly lit room. The brick wall and a few pipes hanging from the ceiling. The light only shines on a portion of the room, leaving another area pitch black.
Larry Rockfield: Well I ain’t never been real good at selling a fight. Truth is I ain’t nobody. I ain’t some Hollywood big shot that you are going to recognize. I ain’t some pretty boy trying to become teenagers new idol. I ain’t lookin for all the attention, I ain’t lookin to become a household name. I’m just a guy lookin to start winning. That ain’t something I need to hype. I don’t need the cameras on to be the Diamond baby. I don’t need the fans to know my name to leave my opponent broken in the ring.
Larry pauses for a moment, then takes a step forward out of the shadows. The first thing we see is his black boots. Larry locks his cold dark eyes on the camera lens, and he begins to speak.
Larry Rockfield: So I guess what I’m sayin is don’t bother getting to know me, cuz it ain’t gonna do ya no good. If you’re lookin for some kind of connection to this match I suggest ya go hop on my opponent’s bandwagon. The most of them have a bit of a following or so I’ve heard.
His tone of voice also changes.
Larry Rockfield: Sorry if I’m not shaking in my boots with fear. Ya see I’m not exactly new to this whole wrasslin concept.
Larry Rockfield: I’ve been thrown in the ring with a few guys who called themselves Icons and even Legends. And I don’t wanna sell em short BUUUUT those guys were grade A nut jobs and juice jockeys. I’d pick them up and SLAM EM EVERY DAMN TIME DIAMOND STYLE BABYYYYYYY. Real tough these guys were PFFF…. But ya see as I’ve learned in this business, I have been ta the bottom more then any man BUT IM STILL HERE
Larry smiles and cracks his knuckles as he thinks about beating up his opponent. Larry brings his hands up from his side, and stares at them as he balls up one hand into a fist, and smashes into his other hand.
Larry Rockfield: I’m looking forward to throwing these bad boys at Eddies face until its black and blue. Who knows maybe I’ll get lucky and I can add some red to them pretty colors. The idea of staining the canvas with your spaghetti sauce before the Diamond show even gets started makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Larry begins to admire his hands in an almost trance like state. He begins licking his lips and is genuinely excited.
Larry Rockfield: Eddie Spaghetti what are you fighting for in Classic Wrestling? What is it that gets you out of bed in the morning, what is it that’s gonna make you step inside the ring with a guy like me. I ask you this now, because after I’ve choked you out I’m gonna ask you one more question in the middle of the squared circle.
Larry takes a few more steps forward, and now his dark eyes are the only thing the camera can see.
Larry Rockfield: Was it worth it? Was it worth it ya damn Meatball….
