The camera then cuts to an outside shot of the Taco Bell arena in the dark of night. Once back inside, the familiar dulcet tones of Sebastian Copeland welcomes everyone to the show. Copeland: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Meltdown 126! And if you've got that feeling of a big night to come, just like I have, then you would be absolutely right to. I am Sebastian Copeland and I am joined at ringside by my long time broadcast partner; Jack Cohen. And Jack, can't you just feel it in the air?! Cohen: You're right, Seabass! The Gold Rush tournament always brings out the very best in everyone, from the wrestlers to the fans. And what's more, the WZCW awards are handed out tonight! It's going to be a big night for sure and I can't wait to get kick it all off! As the music begins to blare around the arena, the crowd are back on their feet to welcome the owner of WZCW; Mr Banks! After a few moments, the silver-haired fox makes his appearance on the stage to a huge cheer from the Idaho natives. Smiling widely, Mr Banks is the picture of prestige; a sharp suit reflecting his personality. Harrys: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the owner of WrestleZone Championship Wrestling... Mr Kenneth Banks!! Copeland: Well, it really doesn't get any bigger than this, folks. When Mr Banks turns up at an event, you know that something is going down. I expect that tonight will be absolutely no different. Cohen: The fans are on their feet, Seabass. They know exactly what is going on here. Mr Banks is going to scrap the draw from Apocalypse and award Constantine the victory, right? Copeland: Uh... I wouldn't hold your breath on that one, Jack. Mr Banks continues down the ramp with his trademark swagger until he reaches the ring. On the steps waiting for him is a microphone, which he obliges in picking up. Standing on the apron of the ring, Mr Banks soaks in the atmosphere from the fans before entering the ring. Banks: IDAHOOOOO! The fans bursts into life once more as Mr Banks recognises their brilliant reception for him and his company. The smile reappears on Mr Banks' face as more cheers come his way. Banks: As you know, I like to be more of a hands off kind of man in WZCW. Vance Bateman and Becky Serra are two very capable General Managers and I have other things to attend to. That being said, I always like to check in with my investment and make sure that it is performing the way it should be; really fulfilling it's potential. Mr Banks allows the words to sink in before continuing. Banks: But as you may also know, I always seem to be around when there is something big going on... The tease from Mr Banks is enough to get the crowd on their feet again; waiting with interest to see what might be going on tonight. Banks: And there is nothing bigger in this company than the Gold Rush Tournament, folks. Let me tell you something. In all of my years of business, I have been successful for one reason... The crowd hangs on his words. Banks: Because I know what will be successful and what wont be. I have refined my skills to be able to know what has potential and what does not. Now, tonight, the first 8 men in the Gold Rush Tournament will be afforded an opportunity to fulfil their potential; just in the same way that I expect WZCW to do. These opportunities do not come around very often in a business like this, so everyone needs to be on top of their game. And with so much on the line and a new face of the company as a prize for the winner, I will be watching with interest tonight and over the next few weeks... The crowd cheer once again at the thought of seeing the Boss a little more often in WZCW. Banks: But, as for tonight, there is so much to be done. Good luck to all of the competitors in the Gold Rush Tournament tonight and going forward. I'll be keeping an eye on you all... With that, Mr Banks' music starts again as he tosses the microphone to the outside of the ring and exits it himself. Copeland: Well, ladies and gentlemen, Mr Banks is watching for the future of the company and so should you be. Like he says, 8 men will begin the tournament over the course of Meltdown and Ascension with a shot at the World Champion as the prize. Cohen: Chances like this didn't happen in my day, Seabass. This is it! Copeland: Absolutely, Jack. And on that note, let me hand over to Leon Kensworth who has the first award to present tonight.
