Match #1Good evening and welcome to the inaugural TNM Christmas Rumble where everybody but tomorrow's finalists will compete in a 20-Person Royal Rumble. Tonight some lingering scores may be settled and others feuds are sure to kick off.
Let's go to the backstage area where The Black Shuck is warming up for tonight.
They say every dog has its day....... Well, today is that day! I’m bringing the madness to Monday and winning this rumble will put me right where I deserve, within reach of a title shot!The Masked Marvel is a man of few words - let's hear what he has to say.
When you hear the howl from between the mist you’ll realise it isn’t folklore, it’s fate!
For once, social distancing goes out the window! Attacks from the left, attacks from the right, but at the end, the Masked One will be standing tall!There is only one ''Last Superstar''. His name is Christopher Tiberius and he is standing by with Jean Trollund.
I always say, there are two kinds of people in this world. There’s the common, every day person, the salt of the earth, blue collar guy, like all of you filthy casuals watching at home. And then there’s people like me, the Last Superstar, Christopher Tiberius.Our colleague Michael Dropps is standing by backstage with the man they call ''Nicky D'', Nick Demola.
Society used to understand this. There used to be the peasants and the aristocrats. Two separate classes, and the lower class knew better than to step out of place in the presence of their betters, because being at the top of something, whether it’s life or professional wrestling, isn’t something you EARN, it’s something you’re born with.
But now, we let everybody participate. Everybody who wants to play wrestler gets to play wrestler, and we all get trophies and a pat on the back. It’s been so long since you fans have seen the real deal that you’ve forgotten the way it used to be. The way it’s SUPPOSED TO BE.
Well, I’m here to remind you all of what a real superstar looks like. Remind you of how a real superstar wrestles. The top four advanced to the finals of the Christmas Brawl and what did I get? Fifth place. You know what that says to me? Somebody was jealous of Christopher Tiberius. Jealous enough to rig the game against me by sending me an opponent from an entirely different sport. Luna Rose, forgive me for stating the obvious, but Lucha Libre isn’t wrestling.
Did you beat me? Sure. But, I was Muhammed Ali, expecting a boxing match, and instead I got a sent into the sumo ring. As we say in Texas, fool me once, shame on you. But fool me twice, shame on me. I have your number now, Luna Rose, and I know your game. You better hope you never face me again, because Christopher Tiberius, the real superstar, the LAST SUPERSTAR, doesn’t take being cheated lightly.
And to prove just how serious I am, I’m going to win this whole battle royal. My advice to you is take notes, because it’s not going to be lucha libre. It’s going to be a lesson in the superiority…of the superstar!
The greatest wrestler in the world, undone by a fluke on the very first night of this tournament, now gets to beat all of the pieces of s*** that couldn't measure up in one fell swoop. You can give me number one, you can give me number 101, it doesn't matter. I am going to be the only guy who doesn't end up as a crumpled heap on the cold concrete. The Man, The Myth, The Legend... and the GOD of this damn sport will ascend to the throne as the winner of the Royal Rumble. Strike up the band, Nick Demola is outta here!Let's go backstage to George DeCraig, who is standing by with Basher Loadstone.
First off, congratulations to those who made the final four of the TNM Christmas Brawl. I know firsthand that Kenta Sawada is one tough customer.Basher Loadstone won a 20-person Royal Rumble:
Now let's get down to business! The Christmas Brawl Royal Rumble! You could go in first; you could go in last; or somewhere between. You don't know when until your name is called. Once you're in it you won't know who's coming next. One minute your helping a guy beat somebody up and then he turns on you. Even guys with a beef may work together until they stab each other in the back. It's every man for himself! I've wrestled alligators, masked dogs, pretty boys, leathernecks and jazz musicians. It doesn't matter who you are! If you are in the rumble, everything's on the table! It's going to be a free for all the likes even Ted Nugent ain't ever seen!
