You call this Underground?
(FADEIN to a man wearing a solid black mask with white flames shooting upwards from the bottom of it. The mask has no holes for eyes, nose, or mouth. The man holds in his right hand a Singapore Cane and in his left, a championship belt.)
MAN: When the word went out that the NWL was creating a show called Underground
, it sent chills down my back.
I'll tell you why. You see this belt?
This is the UXW Heavyweight Championship. That UXW for UNDERGROUND
I took this belt as a rookie and was the only man to ever hold it. I tore down a Burger King restaurant in Philadelphia against a man called Rat. That's right, we wrestled INSIDE A DAMNED BURGER KING RESTAURANT!
Now NWL, you want to call your show the Underground, then I'm laying claim to that show. It's my show now.
Ronnie Valentine. You get the privilege of being the first to fall by my hands. The NWL has offered you up to me as a sacrifice, something for me to put my talents on display here in my first match.
Now then, I'll go ahead and get the pleasantries over up front. Ronnie Valentine, I don't know you from Adam. But when you pull those laces up tight and you walk out to that ring, you're going to get to know me real well. You're going to get to know this (Promo slams his Singapore Cane into the wall behind him) cane real well before the night is over.
And then Valentine, I'm going to pin your shoulders to the mat as easy as one.......two......three.
NWL, you brought me here.
Ronnie Valentine will be the first to pay for that mistake.
Promo has arrived.
Let the madness begin.
