BILL APTER’S HOT SEAT
With Special Guest – WCCW HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION King Harley Race and The Destroyer
The Hot Seat started with King Harley Race coming out to brag about his representing the WCCW in the LWA Championship tournament. Halfway through his rant, the Hot Seat’s other guest, THE DESTROYER stormed the set.
DESTROYER: Blah, blah, blah blah. Could you shut up for just a half a second? This is the problem with Americans. All talk, no action. Race, I won’t deny you’ve been a fighting champion. You’ve fought defended this belt in match after match and several times in the confines of a 15 foot high steel cage. But you know what you ain’t done Race? You know what you ain’t done? You ain’t fought me! You ain’t ever stepped into the ring with The Destroyer.
RACE: You’re right, I ‘ain’t’ stepped into the ring with you because you’re below me. You aren’t worth my time. I only deal with men who will provide me with a challenge.
DESTROYER: A challenge huh? Well, since I ain’t like you, all talk, no action, I’ll give you a challenge. How about this? You man up to get in the ring with me and I’ll do this…
(In one swift motion DESTROYER reared back and cold cocked RACE with a huge right hand! RACE flew back across the set and nearly wound up on his ass. He caught himself on the desk and straightened up. He charged back up to DESTROYER and got right in his face.)
RACE: Well, you got my attention now boy! You want a match, you got it! But if you want it, it’ll be at FINAL DECISION. And if you’re losing to me that night, you’re ain’t going to be in the SOLE SURVIVOR match which means you give up all chances to go to the LWA Tournament.
DESTROYER: I could care less about the LWA. I didn’t come to the WCCW to use it as a springboard to the LWA. I came here to dominate the WCCW and putting that belt around my waist is how I’ll do that. At FINAL DECISION, your reign as King comes to an end!
RACE: Destroyer, you have no idea what you’re stepping into the ring with. FINAL DECISION is going to be your destruction.
DESTROYER: We shall see, but I think one more thing needs to be added to the match.
RACE: Listen punk, I’m the champ, I decide if anything should be added to the match.
DESTROYER: You’re right. You’re the champ. You should call the shots. I was just thinking that it’d be awfully easy for you to ‘escape’ dropping that belt to me by getting yourself DQ’d or counted out.
RACE: If you’re such a student of my previous matches you should know that’s not my style. So just to put your mind at ease I’ll agree to a NO DQ/NO COUNTOUT match. What do you think of that Junior.
DESTROYER: I think that’s great. Shake on it?
(RACE got right up in THE DESTROYER’S face and extended his palm. THE DESTROYER extended his and shook on it. The CROWD was going nuts. The two stood face to face as we…)
