Hello wrestling fans and welcome to Wrestling from the Lion's Road! The biggest news coming out of last week is that we have a new King of Lions - the World's Heavyweight title changed hands and Jack Mace sits atop the mountain now.
"The Wrestling Bear"... oy, that's gonna be something.
Slightly unconventional, maybe. But over the last several months, we've seen Mace wow our audiences with fight after fight. He prides himself on competition above all else and there's no doubt in anyone's mind that he EARNED that Championship!
He absolutely did. He wrestled a great match and despite David Troy having the experience advantage, Mace earned it fairly… but I gotta wonder what this means for the House of Dante. You can shake off a loss, but shaking off a CHAMPIONSHIP loss… whole other story.
Indeed. But right now, Jack Mace has requested this time and right now, we're going to the ring to hear live from our NEW World's Heavyweight Champion… Jack Mace!
"Born to be Wild" by Slayer plays and out from the back comes the LARGE Brit! Only the second Englishman to hold the coveted prize after Ben Chrenshaw, the burly man in the dark blue suit, tied-back dirty blonde hair and a big-ass miles-wide grin on his face walks out! He holds out the title and then heads to the ring with the gold over his shoulder. He gets into the ring and when his music grows quiet, he lets out a soft chuckle.
Oi! Well, lookee here, mates…
He shows off the title for the camera.
I'm one of the biggest mates in this blinkin' fed… and even thought I was the only guy to pin him in LRX, Davey Boy beat me right back. Based on that, Ol' Jackie had only a small shot to beat me mate, David Troy. He kept on tellin' me it wasn't gonna be my time. And I know he meant well. He knows the organization inside and out and has been the standard bearer for a long time whether he held this belt or otherwise…
Looking at the title some more, Mace smiles.
Now look… I owe David Troy and Eddie Dante a lot. They're the men who introduced me to this little place called Lion's Road X while I was competin' down in Louisiana for my other wrasslin' place of business. Eddie and Moosh have been nothing but good to me. But I knew when this match was made, that if I DIDN'T come at Troy with everyone I had… it would've made this piece of gold worthless. THIS is what we fight for! THIS is what we are here to be! CHAMPION!
He holds the title upwards.
NOTHIN' is more important than this! And now, I'M on top! Don't ANYONE tell Ol' Jackie what he can't do!
His voice booms!
Now, it's no secret, I ain't all fancy like a lotta the time. But this title… this responsibility I now carry on my shoulders I take it very seriously, mates. So now that I'm Champion, I'm challenging YOU, the locker room. I don't care who ya THINK you are… line up! Just like I had ta fight to prove I could win this, I'll fight the WHOLE LOT OF YA to prove I'm worthy enough to keep it! I'll...
Mace is immediately cut off by the familiar drumming, clapping, and triumphant horns of The Heavy’s “Same Ol’,” as the man he defeated for the King of Lions World’s Heavyweight Championship slowly walks out.
And here comes the former World’s Heavyweight Champion, and it seems he’s not pleased!
Indeed, as David Troy advances to the ring, his injured arm is in a sling, and he is clearly in no condition to throw down, but the look on his face suggests he doesn’t care. Mace is staring daggers at the former champion, while their mutual manager and friend Eddie Dante looks on. Troy climbs into the ring, before marching right up to the new champion’s face and stopping right before him as “Same Ol’” stops. Troy unceremoniously pulls the KOL title belt off Mace’s shoulder, placing it on his own, before reaching for the microphone in Jack’s hand. Jack resists Troy this time, pushing up into his face, prompting Troy to snap a glance at Dante. Mace looks towards the manager of the God-Bears, who looks back at his client and nods. Jack lets go of the microphone, and Troy breaks the silence.
A promise… is a promise.
Come to think of it, fans, last week David DID say that he would personally wrap that belt around Mace’s waist if he beat him for it...
He hands the microphone back to the champion, before using his good hand to pull the belt off, and stares at it longingly for a moment… before lowering it to Mace’s waist, and reaching around with even his restrained hand, to snap wrestling’s richest prize around its rightful owner. The champion is slightly surprised, as David Troy finishes the job and pats him on the back, smiling. He then signals for the mic back, and once he gets it, he follows up.
Lion’s Road… your heavyweight champion of the world; Jack Mace.
With a smile and a nod, David departs the ring, signalling for the crowd to applaud their champion. With little fanfare, and his promise fulfilled, the three-time former King of Lions walks away from the arena, at least for now.
