What a thrill!
There are more than a few perks to having a man like Dan Ryan as a tag team partner. Not only is he a supreme talent inside the ring, but he's also a multi-millionaire outside of it. As a result, he and BigDog ride in style back to the States from the A1E tour of Europe. Inside the plane, Ryan has gone forward to talk with the pilots, leaving BigDog some time to address their next opponents in the Tag Team Invitational Tournament.
BigDog: When you setup a tournament like this and only invite the 16 best and brightest tag teams in the land, you expect that each and every round is going to be a challenge.
Our first round was no exception. Despite not being a full-time tag team, Chad & Matthew Kurtis put up a heck of a fight. That's the kind of competition that Ryan and I are looking for in this tournament. We're not getting it in our home fed, so we have to find it where we can.
Of course, our opponents in this round, the Thrillbillies, didn't have nearly as tough a time as we did. Lucky for them, their first round opponents disliked each other even more than the Kurtis brothers did. So much so that Beast and Adam Benjamin never even made it to the ring.
Hey, never look a gift horse in the mouth, I say.
No matter the method, the Thrillbillies have found themselves in the second round of this tournament. Unfortunately for you, that makes the two of you the brand new public enemy #1.
Being in the middle of the bullseye is not the high rent district when the people looking through the other end of that scope are BigDog and Dan Ryan. That target painted on your backs is nearly as red as the skin on your necks. And unfortunately for you, we never miss what we're aimed at.
It's nothing personal, boys. Hope you don't take it that way. It's really just this simple ... we want to show the world that we're the most dominant tag team on the planet. No ifs, ands, or buts.
By the time this tournament is over, there will be no doubt in anyone's mind of that fact.
