From Selland Arena, Fresno, CA!
The evening started out with The Commissioner coming to ringside…
COMMISSIONER: Good evening Golden State Wrestling Fans and welcome to CIVIL WAR!
COMMISSIONER: As you know the purpose of tonight’s show is to determine who will face off against THE ROAD WARRIORS at WrestleMania. But I had to come out and address a situation that came up last month on Monday Night Mayhem. King Harley Race challenged WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION The Iron Sheik to a Steel Cage Match at WrestleMania because of the match that ended in a DQ at King Of The Ring. The Iron Sheik accepted this match when we went off the air. However, it should be noted that Mr. Perfect is in line to receive a Title Shot at WrestleMania and this has put the front office in a bit of a bind. We never want to deprive the Golden State Wrestling fans of good action though and that’s why, by the powers vested in me as the Commissioner, I hereby announce that the match between LWF CHAMPION The Iron Sheik and King Harley Race will, indeed, take place.
COMMISSIONER: I’m also here to announce that this match will take place within the confines of a 15 foot high steel cage!
COMMISSIONER: And finally, in order to ensure that Mr. Perfect gets his title shot at WrestleMania, the match between The Iron Sheik and King Harley Race in a steel cage will take place…TONIGHT!
COMMISSIONER: Now we have a lot of action to get through, so let’s get to it.
