* PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * Copeland: Welcome everybody live at the KFC Yum! Center in beautiful Louisville, Kentucky!! Sebastian Copeland here alongside Jack Cohen as 14,739 fans are packed in tonight and ready to see the World's Champion, Tyrone Blades in action tonight against the re-invigorated Xander! Cohen: Nevermind that. What about the hometown boy, Randy Studd! He's in action! Copeland: Wait, I thought he was Ital- Oh, wait a minute. I have just received word. The World Champion is on his way out here! Tyrone stands firmly in the ring. His World Heavyweight Championship clasped over his shoulder as he prepares to speak with a mic in hand. Tyrone: Last week Meltdown went off the air with me in shock when a ghost from my past stared back at me. See, this is Flex' latest crazy plan to 'take over' WZCW as it's "King" or whatever junk he says. I'm not impressed. Been there. Done that. But after clearing my head for a few days, Flex bringing Wasabi Toyota back as his personal bodyguard, it made me realize. This fool is a pretender. Nah, I mean is in fact pretending to be something he isn't. He's pretending to be me. Big corporate "King" Mussel the dealbreaker. Making the big moves and the big bucks, trying to do what I did in taking over WZCW. To the point that he's trying to bring the same people I used to do it. Former Apostle of Chaos, Wasabi Toyota. He dug him up and put him in front of me to freak me out. But he forgets who I am. I wrote the book on hostile takeovers, son. You can act the part all you want but when I ruled this place, I held this. Tyrone hoists up his World title proudly as the crowd cheers on. Tyrone: Where's yours? King Mussel appears on stage sporting a smug face as Wasabi Toyota appears behind him with his arms crossed. The two march down the aisle slowly. Wasabi grabs a mic and opens the ropes for Mussel as he enters the ring. Mussel: Pretender he says. That is hilarious. I can't make up the money I have, the success I bring. Sure, you once ruled this place with an iron fist, but that was back when I was dominating the high school gym. Since then you've lost your money, your spouse, your pride and even your name. What? You thought the corporate world was sex, drugs and rock & roll? I'm supposed to be impressed by your insults? Call me a pretender if you want. That doesn't change that I have the wealth. And I got the health to back it all up. Only thing missing is that pretend World title you have there but that's what I got this guy here for. Because at Flex-Awakening he's going to make sure the right person wins. Tyrone raises his title up in Mussel's face but Wasabi intervenes. Tyrone doesn't back down but he does raise his mic again to retort. Tyrone: Does your side-chick Eve know about this? Your big plan to bring a big guy to finally help you win the big one? Mussel: Heh. That's funny. You making jokes about side chicks. You deadbeat. Tyrone goes from calm to furious with that statement and tries to confront Mussel who just turns around smirking as Wasabi Toyota prevents Tyrone from reaching King Mussel. Mussel: Hahahaha. Health isn't something you just maintain with a good diet, Tyrone. It's also mental. You can't cheat on your brain. Say hello to Batti for me. Mussel leaves as Tyrone tries to force himself through Wasabi. Wasabi pushes him before he too leaves. Copeland: What a disgusting personal attack by King Mussel. Tyrone may not be a role model. But I'll be damned if that man hasn't worked to make up for all his past transgressions. Cohen: You can try to make up for as many crimes as you want, Copeland. That does not mean that your slate can be wiped clean. If I were Tyrone, I would focus on my match tonight against Xander and forget King Mussel's words. Mussel is doing everything he can come up with to get under Tyrone's skin.
