Drop tha ego...and you're just a busta'.
[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jan-22-03 AT 09:24 PM (EST)](FADE IN to the set of GXW Insider, hosted by Jason Grant. The stage is set up inside an empty Odyssey Arena, in a far corner where chairs will soon be placed for the big show. The GXW crew is in the background, rigging up the lighting Grant is sitting in a leather chair, holding a clipboard. The director gives him his cue and Grant opens the show.)
JG: Hello everyone and welcome to GXW Insider. We are coming to you today from the Odyssey Arena, just days away from the big event coming to you from Belfast, Northern Ireland…X-perience. And what a lineup it promises to be. From top to bottom, some terrific matches…some of which are matches for a tradition in here GXW and EWI before that, the King of the Cage tournament. My guest this evening is somewhat of a regular here on Insider and I’m sure he has a lot to say today, former Television champion…Boogie Smallz!
(CUE UP: “Black Superman” by Above The Law. Boogie walks out wearing a wave cap, a black hoodie, and some black jeans. He has a rolled up blunt behind his ear and the HHE medallion hanging from around his neck. He looks pissed off and stomps up to the set. He takes a seat near Grant and gives him a nod, as to say “what’s up”.)
JG: Boogie, great to have you here. We all saw what went down at Onslaught and I think it’s a damn travesty. You have been, in my view, the greatest Television champion this company has ever seen. You didn’t back down from anyone, you successfully defended the title on every show, and Boog, whether you believe it or not, you opened a lot of eyes.
BS: I thought I was slantin’ eyes.
JG: Opening eyes, in the figurative sense.
BS: Ya know Grant, you can come out here and feed me and tha people all this ish, but it ain’t gonna take away from tha fact that I still lost. Yeah, it took FIVE people to beat me…but comin’ from a tag background, I’m used to gettin’ jumped by two fools at once…but FIVE…come on now, that’s just a bit much. Jus’ goes to show you tha pettiness of Tommy Rage. He wants tha title that damn bad…he can have it. But rest assured Rage, that you ain’t seen tha last of me. Yeah, you might be sittin’ phat right now…but when you least suspect it…I’m gonna give yo’ punk ass a receipt!
JG: So no plans on getting a rematch?
BS: Not right now. I got other ish I need to deal.
JG: Like the King of the Cage?
(Boogie grabs the blunt from behind his ear and lights it up. He takes several hits before leaning back in his chair to answer the question.)
BS: Let me tell you somethin’ I am havin’ a hard time tryin’ to figure out, ah-ight. GXW announces tha sign up for tha King of tha Cage. They tell erryone to sign up if you want in, rennyrenny, long story short…I didn’t sign up. At the time I had enough commitments with tha TV title and tha CSWA…I wasn’t about to add more to my load. Next thing I know…I see my name on tha list. (Puffs his blunt.) What tha kcuf is that? Why am I bein’ forced to enter this damn thing…jus’ so tha suits can get their rocks off at my expense? (Puffs his blunt.) But then I thought about it…I don’t have tha TV title, tha CSWA hasn’t booked me in about a month…why not?
JG: Maybe this is JP’s last attempt to screw you over before he gets booted out of GXW.
BS: That ish with JP…I’m jus’ gonna squash it. He’s losin’ his power, if he suspends me or tries to sue, who’s to say that Dupree wouldn’t overturn it once he’s gone?
JG: Very true. And if you happen to advance in the tournament, they would have no choice but to let you fight in the next round. However…that is a very big IF…because of all the people that GXW has on it’s roster that signed up for the King of the Cage…you happened to draw the guy that, if this were seeded, would no doubt be number one. I’m talking about former World champion, Dan Ryan. What are you going to do about him?
BS: (Puffs his blunt.) Grant, you can build tha guy up all you want, but I never believe tha hype. I can track his career, do some extensive research, I could even watch every damn Best of Dan Ryan tape I could find…but you don’t ever truly know about something until you tackle it head-on and find out first-hand. (Puffs his blunt.) That’s exactly what I’m goin’ to do. You don’t need to be askin’ me what I’m gonna do about Dan Ryan. (Shakes his head.) Nah…what is he gonna do about me? My last name ain’t Cobb…or Fasco…(Puffs his blunt.) it’s not Smallz either (Grins), but that’s not my point. I am like no other and regardless of how good you say you are…it all comes down to what you can do when tha bell rings. I’m confident in my abilities…but I know it’s gonna take more than bein’ “good on tha mic” for this “kid” to prevail in tha King of tha Cage.
JG: This guy is probably tha biggest challenge of your singles career. It’s GXW’s Rookie of the Year versus GXW’s Wrestler of the Year…man this has so much potential to be tha Match of the Year!
BS: My biggest challenge to date was a match in faggot-ass London, where five lil’ beeyatches pulled a jack move and stole, not only tha TV title, but my undefeated streak. Now they wanna put me up against tha best this company has for shot at being King. (Puffs his blunt.) I ain’t got ish to lose, but Ryan on tha other hand does. His name, tha big reputation, all the accolades. (Puffs his blunt.)You put me in a cage and ain’t no tell what tha kcuf will pop off…but you can guarantee that if I got myself in a corner…I’m gonna come out swingin’ and knock out anything in my way!
JG: It’s gonna be a blockbuster for sure. You doing any sort of special training for the caged environment? We heard Ryan mention his cardio workout.
BS: I ain’t puttin’ on no damn leotard, with a John McEnroe headband, and runnin’ in place to Olivia Newton-John singin’, “Lets Get Physical”…that’s for damn sure, because tha way I see it…it’s kill or be killed and that’s tha mindset I got for this match. I don’t know about Dan Ryan…but I ain’t ready to die just yet. (Puffs his blunt.) I’m herre in Ireland…land of the green…and as you know…(Puffs his blunt.) I like green. (Smiles) You would think that with tha language barrier, I wouldn’t be able to score any herbals…but I got tha hook up.
JG: Language barrier? They speak English here in Ireland.
BS: I can’t be understandin’ them people. But anyway, back to my story. I was chillin’ over by tha latest car bombin’, over in downtown Belfast…what’s with all tha damn bombin’ anyway? What happened to tha good ol’ days when people did drivebys? What is happeneing to tha World? (Puffs his blunt.) Anyway, I ran into this lil’ leprechaun lookin’ foo’ who know who I was. He came up to me talkin’ about tha “top of the mornin’ “ or some ish and tellin’ me about how Ireland has tha best chronic. Now you know I didn’t believe this trick, but if he could get me some green…I’d go along with it. So he tells me what all he’s got…Lucky Charms, Saint Patty, some sort of Potato Weed…I said kcuf it and took them all. Let’s just say my ass got BLARNEY STONED! They talk about if you snatch a leprechaun you get his pot of gold. I snatched one up and got my gold…in pot! (Smiles.) Grant…my blunt is almost burned out and I got a gang of hoez chillin’ in my penthouse with a bottle of Cristal on ice. I gots to get gone. PEACE!
(Boogie walks off of the set. Grant looks down at his clipboard and then up at the camera.)
JG: Folks, when we come back we’ll countdown to the upcoming shows in Belfast and get you up to date on the latest going-ons in GXW. Stay tuned!
(FADE TO BLACK)
