BRADLEE NELSON vs. KING BLUEBERRY
“Nothin’ But A Good Time” by Poison hits and Bradlee Nelson steps out onto the entrance ramp and flexes, posing for a moment.
Vince Howard: Making his way to the ring from Pocatello, Idaho, accompanied by Bowie Abrams… He stands five feet and ten inches and weighs in at two-hundred and fifteen pounds… One half of MVW’s own Surf Express BRRRROOOOOOO! BRAAAAAAAAAAAADLLLEEEEEEEEEEEE NEEEEELSSSSOOOOOOON!
Bradlee and Bowie sprint down the ramp slapping hands. After a brief pep talk, Bradlee Nelson ascends up the stairs. He leaps over the top rope and spins, letting his gear swing around him. Bradlee looks up at the ramp awaiting his opponent. Blue and purple lights illuminate the entrance, as the first notes of Motley Crue’s “Knock ‘Em Dead, Kid” hit through the arena speakers. Tonight the PRIME Tag Team Champions enter the building without much in the way of fanfare, which is to say there are no forklifts, no mannequins, and no one is in imminent danger of being stabbed by a dog. Again.
Let ’em know, Vince Howard.
Vince Howard: Making his way to the ring from Boston, Massachusetts, accompanied by Reina Raspberry… He weighs in tonight at two-hundred pounds, with a…
PRIME’s ring announcer glances at disbelief at the card in his hand.
Vince Howard: Solo combined height of five feet and eleven inches?!
It’s immediately torn in half. Then again. Then a third time. Then he drops it to the ground and stomps on it for a few seconds.
Vince Howard: He is one half of PRIME Tag Team Champions… KIIIIIIING BLLLLUUUUUUUUUUUUEBERRRRRYYYYYYYYY!
Richard Parker: I think this kid is in for a long night.
Nick Stuart: I’ve heard a lot of great things out of Cleveland about the Surf Express Bro tag team, and specifically Bradlee Nelson. He might surprise us tonight.
Bradlee marches across the ring and holds out his hand for King Blueberry to shake. Blueberry takes a long look at it, before deciding to hell with it and shakes Bradlee’s hand. The two separate back to opposite corners.
Nick Stuart: What sportsmanship displayed by Bradlee Nelson.
Richard Parker: I heard he once gave his opponent one of those goofy foam surf boards.
Blueberry and Bradlee lock up in the center of the ring, the two men engaged in a collar and elbow tie-up push each other back and forth a bit. Finally Bradlee manages to transition to a headlock, but King Blueberry sends him sprinting to the ropes. Bradlee rebounds off and tries for a flying forearm. Blueberry ducks under and goes to the ropes himself.
Nick Stuart: Some high paced action tonight!
Bradlee lands and rolls to his feet, he turns around and gets absolutely obliterated by a swinging neckbreaker. Bradlee looks like he was hit with a stun gun and Timo looks at Blueberry a bit quizzically. Blueberry hooks the leg and covers Bradlee.
Richard Parker: Told you, long night for the kid.
Nick Stuart: He’s still got something left!
Bradlee shoots an arm up at the last second. Blueberry immediately transitions the pin attempt to a headlock as Bradlee tries to sit up. Bowie begins to pound the mat like a wild man trying to get the crowd to respond. Bradlee slowly struggles his way over to the ropes and is able to reach out and touch it with his foot. Timo steps in and the two separate without issue. KB back to his corner, and Bradlee back to his.
Nick Stuart: Does look to be a tough day at the office for the youngster though.
Bradlee comes back in with a head of steam for another lockup, Blueberry ducks under and tries for another neckbreaker but Bradlee manages to turn around and push King Blueberry away. Blueberry comes back in, and Nelson leaps into the air and hits him with a picture perfect drop kick. Blueberry stumbles back to the corner and Nelson runs over and leaps up onto the middle rope in one fluid motion. He starts to rain right hands down on Blueberry, but Blueberry shoves the young man off. Nelson tries to come back in but Blueberry absolutely devastates Nelson with a chop across the chest.
Richard Parker: Oooooh! That’ll leave a mark.
Nick Stuart: I thought you hated King Blueberry.
Richard Parker: Listen Nick, I like winners.
Nelson stumbles backwards and Blueberry is on him quickly, he lifts Nelson over his head and slams him to the mat with a snap suplex. KB rolls through and comes running in with an elbow strike, but Nelson is able to hit the deck and avoid it. Blueberry jumps to his feet, while Nelson kips up, Blueberry dives in and smashes Nelson with a diving cutter.
Nick Stuart: What a cutter!
Richard Parker: Eyes rolled up in his head, he might be dead.
Timo slides in for the count as Blueberry hooks both legs.
DING DING DING
Richard Parker: Oh look, he’s breathing.
King Blueberry jumps to his feet as Reina Raspberry runs into the ring. Bowie immediately checks on Bradlee.
Vince Howard: Your winner by pinfall…. KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING BLUEBEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRYY!
Nick Stuart: Well, I mean Bradlee at least has a great dropkick.
Richard Parker: Fantastic dropkick.
Nick Stuart: And I wouldn’t want to be that Berries next opponent, what a cutter.
Our scene fades to commercial.
