'Happy' Ralphie Bloodthirst, drawn by Werner Mueck"Happy" Ralphie Bloodthirst (LWL)

The Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, is abuzz. The Lone Wolf League is in town, but tonight is different, as the governing body from the IWA offices is in town also. Many dignitaries are seen in attendance. The lights go out, and the song "Raining Blood" by Slayer blares over the P.A. system as local LWL superstar "Happy" Ralphie Bloodthirst bursts from behind the curtain to the adulation of his hometown crowd. Ralphie slowly walks down the aisle toward the ring where a podium is set up and IWA President Johnny B waits, sitting at a table with the IWA World Championship belt. The crowd chants Ralphie's name, and kids can be seen in the crowd with their replica Ralphie foam cheese graters as he finally enters the ring and shakes the president's hand. Also at the table are the members of the LWL's Authority. Johnny B straps the belt around Ralphie's waist, and the crowd erupts. He shakes the president's hand again and steps to the podium to begin speaking:

(Grinning as the crowd continues chanting his name) "Whoever it was that said championships didn't matter -- wait a minute..." (Holding his hand to his head as if it were a gun) "Seriously, I'm very gracious for this. I've been grinding pretty hard lately. The 31 staples I received after the Mount Bloodmore match with my turncoat brother just came out a couple of days ago. Still, the tenderness of my hairline is a constant reminder of that war. The hair is even growing back where they shaved off part of my dreadlocks.

"I have a list of some people I want to thank: Mom, you've been my rock. My cousin, Meltdown, who is one of the greatest wrestling teachers of all time. Of course, my pops (Death Metal), who has always been my inspiration; I hope I've made you proud. My associate, El Hijo del Armas Archuleta; you're a good friend. My rivals, Johnny Canuck, whom I've enjoyed hurting so much, and Starkiller, the torturing of whom the past year and a half has given me almost as much pleasure as the tooth I took from him to have implanted into mine -- smile; show off that gap, hahaha! Lastly, my brother, Antler Jones, who blindly stabbed me in the back, but also opened my eyes and renewed my focus.

(Unstrapping his belt and holding it high overhead) "This is an open invitation to everyone else in the IWA. The LWL is the toughest place to be. Don't be fooled by some fabricated revolutionaries. You can run in our pack like a man, or you can go somewhere else like a punk! I'll be here waiting!"
