WORLD, U.S., KING OF THE RING

World Champion

John the Baptist (WSL)
"The Game" from Parts Unknown; 500; $300,000 + 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt & 50 free matches

Date/Time: 6/08/12, 11:05 PM, EDT
Location: The Grand IWA Coliseum, Willowick, OH

The crowd is packed to the rafters, and is anxiously awaiting the arrival of IWA superstar "The Game" to claim his third IWA World title. The reaction to the announcement of his name from the energetic crowd is mixed: waves of cheers scattered amongst the more dominant boos. Suddenly, his namesake song by Motorhead explodes from the arena's speakers, and plays for nearly two minutes -- yet no one appears from behind the curtains. Consequently, the crowd's murmuring grows increasingly louder until the music abruptly stops, and the IWAtron crackles to life. Appearing on the screen is a live video feed from the Grand Ballroom of Webster Hall, the biggest and hottest nightclub in New York City. The camera rotates 360 degrees to take in a full view of the capacity crowd before panning up to the balcony, where a bevy of beauties is seen entering the section arm-in-arm with "The Game." His NEW entrance music, "Down with the King" (MixXxu Remix) by Run-D.M.C., featuring Rakim, Nas, and 2Pac, starts playing over the club sound system just as he comes into full view of the crowd. Following closely behind is NFL superstar Eli Manning, quarterback of the 4-time Superbowl Champion NY Giants! With every spotlight in the Ballroom pointed at "The Game" and Eli, they both thrust their right arms into the air -- "The Game" hoisting the IWA World title, and Eli lifting the Vince Lombardi trophy. In a heartbeat, an eruption of deafening cheers explodes from the dance floor! Satisfied with the crowd's reaction, "The Game," Eli, and the ladies make their way down to center stage while full champagne glasses are being handed out to everyone in the crowd, on the house. Once the two men arrive at their destination, three of the hottest women in the club, who are wearing tight t-shirts reading "Rated TG!" on the front and "Got Game?" on the back, climb onto the stage to hoist each of "The Game"'s World title belts high in the air behind him for all to see. The packed club starts roaring with more cheers and applause before Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Nicki Minaj appear from a VIP section to join the IWA legend and 2-time Superbowl MVP on stage for an unscheduled live performance of "Monster," which is then followed by "Run This Town" from Kanye, Jay, and Rihanna, who appears from stage left. For a full 10 minutes, the stage becomes a clinic for "dirty dancing" as Rihanna and "The Game" rhythmically grind together from a standing position all the way to the ground, while Eli surprisingly lights up Minaj with some well-placed gyrating -- all to the utter delight of everyone in attendance. However, once the live performances are over, the MixXxu remix of "Down with the King" begins to play over the club sound system again just as the video footage of the celebration begins to fade to black... but not before the mics pick up the chants from the raucous NYC crowd, Eli Manning, and the Hip-Hop/R&B superstars, of the ORIGINAL moniker of the Queens borough native and enigmatic 3-time IWA World Champion:

"KING-PIN! KING-PIN! KING-PIN! KING-PIN! ..."
