ALIAS TITLE MATCH: C. MORTGOMERY BYRNES (C) VS. EDDIE CROSS
DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES THAT ARE MOST LIKELY ALEXEI RUSLAN’S FAULT, WE CANNOT AIR THE ALIAS TITLE MATCH.
PLEASE ENJOY THIS COMMERCIAL INSTEAD THAT IN NO WAY INCRIMINATES ALEXEI IN ANY WRONGDOING, NOPE, NOSIREE…
A large banner of the PRIME logo and nothing more.
Chittering and chattering from offstage voices.
It appears to be something straight out of the American classic: Patton.
And indeed, a man walks across the stage, but he’s anything but George S. Patton.
Brown overcoat. Brown hat. Brown pants and hammers and sickles galore.
He turns and faces the camera and speaks clearly.
Alexei Ruslan: Quiet!!
The dutiful voices silence, immediately, as Ruslan stands with both hands behind his back. He offers an uncharacteristically broad smile.
Alexei Ruslan: Hello. Dear people of PRIME! This is a public announcement for all to hear. PWA-02 will be held on June 10th and 11th. All PWA federations will be in attendance! Did you know that at PWA-1, Ivan Stanislav successfully defeated HOW World Champion, Christopher America, to bring honor and glory to PRIME? He certainly did! In record time!
He snaps his heels together.
Alexei Ruslan: At PWA-2, representatives for Christopher America and the great Ivan Stanislav will compete in a flag match. For America: Steven Solex. Perennial loser and failed patriot of America. For Ivan Stanislav? The Scarlet Sickle herself! Lindsay Troy! Watch the sickle cut down the curr who represents America and bring honor to not just PRIME, but Mother Russia!
Ruslan grins at the camera.
Alexei Ruslan: Thank you so much for this airtime, Lindsay Troy!
Below Ruslan, a message crawls by in bold, red letters: “This was absolutely sanctioned by PRIME. Any air time this message has taken up was NOT the fault of anyone involved. Regardless of what lies you might hear.
Fade to Red.
