WCF Tag League Block B Match
Jayson Price/Vincent Augustine vs John Rabid/Roy Speede
The arena goes dark as the opening instrumental of MONSTERS by Shinedown begins to play. The low audio of the first verse begins, a soft strobe hitting the arena and the tron displaying a maze in a hedge. The first chorus bursts to life and on the top of the ramp stands Vincent Augustine, arms spread wide.
Kyle Steel: The following is our opening contest of the evening and it is a Block B Match in the WCF Tag League! Introducing first, from Yreka, California, weighing in at 205 pounds...VINCENT AUGUSTINE!
He makes his way to the ring pacing with the music, shouting back and forth with the crowd. Sliding under the bottom rope, he does a spin with his arms out and approaches the far corner, wringing out his muscles as he awaits the start of the match.
"The Cell" by Gojira hits the arena speakers as the lights dim down. When the drums kick in, pyro goes off from the titantron and stage. The crowd lets out a mixed reaction as a spotlight comes down onto the stage and Jayson Price walks out from the back, staring out at the crowd and then focusing on the ring.
Kyle Steel: And his tag team partner, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, weighing in at 260 pounds...JAYSON PRICE!
Price starts walking down the ramp, ignoring the outstretched hands of the fans, until he reaches ringside where he rolls into the ring under the bottom rope and heads for his corner. Price stays leaning against the turnbuckles until the bell rings.
Kyle Steel: And their opponents...
The lights go out in the arena. After several seconds, words written in a bright white begin flashing on the otherwise blackened out Jumbotron. With each fading word, a new word pops up on the screen.
As the last word fades, all five words reappear on the jumbotron at once.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!?!
The lights slowly come back on as 'Hear Me Now' by Hollywood Undead begins to play through the speakers as Roy Speede steps out on stage. He crosses his arms in an X across his chest, with his right arm underneath his left, and his hands in his fists. He bows his head for several seconds, and his chin rests in the gap between his fists.
Kyle Steel: “Introducing, from Richmond, Virginia, Wrestling Championship Federation's own Silver Lining, he is ROY SPEEEEDE!!”
Roy drops his right arm, and raises his left arm in the air, with his pointer, middle, and pinky fingers extended, and his ring finger and thumb tucked into his palm. His palm is facing the crowd. He drops his arm, and begins jogging to ringside, high-fiving fans as he goes, before climbing onto the apron, and then climbing the outside of the turnbuckle. He raises his left arm, with the same fingers extended as when he was on stage. He leaps from the turnbuckle into the ring.
“Death Breath - Toxic Avenger Remix” by Bring Me The Horizon hits as a huge pyrotechnic barrage explodes around the jumbotron. As the smoke clears, we see John Rabid standing tall; arms outstretched as he spins on the spot. Rabid struts down the ramp, snarling and gnashing his teeth at a stray cameraman as John's name appears on a Slam graphic. Meanwhile, Rabid's 'tron plays in the background; it's The Ripper hitting the Kingdom Destroyer on a cavalcade of doomed jobbers, this scene is intercut with footage of Lon Chaney in Tod Browning's "London After Midnight" (1927).
Kyle Steel: And his tag team partner, from London, England, weighing in at 226 pounds...JOHN RABID!
Rabid reaches the ramp and climbs the turnbuckle, “smelling” the boo's from the crowd before taking off his black trench-coat and shades and waving his hapless opponent on with a cocky smirk on his face.
