Cesar Duran, Alexander Hammerstone and Richard Holliday Segment
Emilio Sparks: I’m gonna try to get a word with Cesar now that Hammerstone escaped, so let’s see if we can grab him.
Alexander Hammerstone: DURAN!
Cesar Duran: Get out of his way. What do you want? You want to hit me? Go ahead.
Richard Holliday: It’s a trap. Don’t hit him. It’s a trap, he’s trapping you.
Cesar Duran: Hit me right now. Show me your power. Come on.
Richard Holliday: It’s a trap, you know, we’re not idiots, Duran.
Cesar Duran: What a perceptive man you have in this little buddy of yours. Smart enough to creep around like a rat in the dark. Hit me right now and you will be stripped off automatically of your World Heavyweight Championship belt.
Alexander Hammerstone: You little weasel, what did you do?
Cesar Duran: Nothing, hit me, it was Court Bauer. Fatu so worried him as a champion, that he added a clause. If you attack the owner of the matchmaker, the belt will be stripped off automatically from the champion. So, come on, hit me.
Alexander Hammerstone: You know what? Maybe I don’t care that much about the title.
Cesar Duran: Strike me down. You see, real power requires more than a mountain of muscle. And, you, if the dynasty is so desperate to have a fight, good enough. You will have a fight with Pagano in a Falls Count Everywhere Barrio Brawl. Yes, and you, rest up that clipped wing of yours, because next week, you’re gonna defend your title, healthy or not. Unless you want to hit me now and we strip your title immediately out of you?
Alexander Hammerstone: You’re gonna get yours, Duran.
Cesar Duran: Not today. You live in my world. This is my world and you two rats just merely live in it, so now if you excuse me, I have business to do. Get out of my way.
Richard Holliday: It’s a trap. He’s a sleaze ball. Can’t trust him as far as you could throw him.

Jacob Fatu Promo
My name is Jacob Fatu, the son of the legendary Tonga Kid. I’m from Sacramento, California, The Golden State, it’s nothing but love out there. You know, you can say your life’s been rough, the whole nine, but overall, I come from a good family. Shoutout to my parents. Parents have always been good. My siblings. It just ain’t been nothing but love, man. I really didn’t grow up wanting to wrestle. I didn’t want to wrestle at all, you know, until the day I caught my case for the 211 when I was 18, was locked down and went to jail. For some crazy reason, every dorm has a tv. I just happen to be flipping through the channels, right, and who comes on, my brothers, The Usos. They’re coming on and I will never forget it. They came out with Tamina and they were wrestling against Tyson Kidd, another MLW Superstar, Davey Boy Smith and Natalya.
And, man, when I was 18 locked down sitting in Sacramento County Jail, now they was flipping through the channel and I saw my brothers and them, I think it’s there when I kind of made my mind up. Funny story was I used to go to my uncle Rikishi’s house every summer. And back there, they will have a wrestling ring set up. We had a trampoline, so we’ll move the trampoline in front of the wrestling ring and then right between the swimming pool and the wrestling ring. You know, when they say, Usos, you do these flips, this and that, that’s actually where I learned how to do my backflips. That was at my uncle Rikishi’s house from the wrestling ring. Go up, dive out, bounce onto the trampoline into the pool, man. But yeah, I think when I saw my brother and them wrestling out there when I was locked down on the TV, I made my mind up. So at the same time, when I got out of jail, my wife’s from LA, everything just fell in place, you know. My uncle Rikishi had a school out there in Los Angeles with Gangrel and Black Pearl, so when I got out of jail, my wife, you feel me, damn, I didn’t know that this shit was gonna be like this. Shoutout to my beautiful wife though, you know what I’m saying.
She had told me, bruh, you keep going to jail, this ain’t it, you won’t see the kids, the kids need you. When I got out of jail in Sacramento, the first day I got out, bro, she moved me. She moved me straight all the way to LA, that’s how everything fell into place. I moved to LA for a couple months. My Uncle Rikishi’s son, Tamiko, he’s the younger brother of The Usos, they gave me a call and were like, brother, you’re out here, what are you doing, what you got lined up? I was like, man, brother, just working at a bar, bouncing every night for 60 dollars. Why won’t you come give wrestling a try? Nah, brah, it’s all good, I really didn’t respect the business because I grew up in it. Not even knowing I was growing up in the business, I grew up in it. Being at the dinner table, hearing my dad talk on the phone, hearing my uncles come left and right, they get emotional a lot because of what this business has done for my family, the good, the bad, and the ugly. And then I also saw the success that you could get out of it. Man, I gave it a shot.
