THE FIRST QUESTION
We cut to a distorted screen, like an old VHS tape that has been recorded over too many times. After a few shaky bursts of static the image cuts to black as ominous, warped music plays over the darkness.
Haunting piano, strings and enigmatic 90s style synthesizer creates a mysterious mood. The odd flourish of a spicy saxophone fully completes the Unsolved Mysteries vibe.
Wait.. it’s actually Unsolved Mysteries music. Straight up Gary Malkin’s “Unsolved Mysteries” outro music. You can almost hear Robert Stacks grumbling about aliens and cultists.
Why this oddly specific music for this segment? Because, friends, we are about to embark on the mystery of this decade!
As the music continues its melancholy melody, a narrator peels back the shadows and explains the scene.
“Late one summer evening a man stood at a crossroads.”
The silhouette of a man staring down a road can be seen. Despite it being a bright and sunny day a nearby fog machine ensures the mood stays spooky.
“Who is this man?”
The mysterious man’s head perks up as if he can hear the narrator’s words. The fog swirls around him in a mystifying way.
“The Answer is another Question all together.”
A tilt of the figures head as he moves both of his hands to his hips as though annoyed by the Narrator’s speech.
“And the Question that you might ask is Answered by a name.”
The figure now scratches their head in confusion as the Narrator pushes on.
“..and.. And the Answer of the Name is.. Is.. Unquestionable. Nailed it.”
Throwing their hands up the shadowy figure seems to give up on the Narrator. The head swivels to look down both roads seemingly deep in thought.
“But as with all things it all begins with one question.”
With a snap of its fingers the figure ambles down the right side of the road. Intensified saxophone reaches through the fog as a sign, once obscured becomes visible, the Road to PRIME.
“Just who is coming to PRIME Wrestling?”
We then cut to the ring.
