After the match, THE ROAD WARRIORS stood triumphant in the ring. Animal grabbed a mic.
ANIMAL: I think it’s about time the LOWF sanctioned some Tag Team Titles and put them immediately around our waists.
HAWK: That’s right! We’ve run through every tag team here. We’re currently the top ranked Tag Team. I’m beginning to think that we need to start looking elsewhere for challenges! Ha ha haa.
Just then the mysterious man in the front row hopped the ring barrier and scrambled up into the ring and grabbed the mic out of Hawk’s hand. Security quickly ran to the ring, but Hawk & Animal waved them off, saying they wanted to hear what he had to say.
MAN: For weeks I’ve been trying to get an audience with Commissioner Grant. He’s refused every meeting I’ve requested. So I come to the matches and try to state my case here and I get kicked out. Thrown out on my butt. So for the last few weeks I’ve bided my time. I’ve sat nicely in the front row, waiting for a chance to talk.
ANIMAL: Well now you got it runt! Talk.
MAN: Uh, yeah. Thanks. You want a challenge is that what you said earlier.
HAWK: Heh. It would be nice.
MAN: Well I’ve got a challenge for you. I have a team a team that would love to go up against you. In fact this team is currently the reigning NWA Champions.
HAWK & ANIMAL: Ha ha haaaa haaaaa!
ANIMAL: NWA? NWA! Ha haaa. The NWA is the minor leagues pal!
MAN: These two are NOT minor leagues. They just need a shot! That’s all, just a shot!
HAWK: Well, little man, since we are the most dominant Tag Team in GSW, we have some pull. We’ll give your team a shot. Next week, on TV. You bring your tag team and we’ll be there to welcome them!
MAN (Jumping Up And Down): Oh man, you aren’t going to regret it, well, I mean you are going to regret it, but you’re…oh nevermind!
With that the man jumped out of the ring, over the barrier and raced out of the building. Looks like we’ll be seeing him next week on TV in Burbank!
