[Gordon Myers gets up with a mic in hand. Erik Reid meets Gordon out in
front of the announce table.]
GM: You have quite a big task in front of you this week, Erik. You go oneon-
one against Tumaffi.
ER: I know that, Gordon. This isnít a big task. This is a monumental task.
Last week, Tumaffi, you injured someone trying to earn an honest dollar. I
wonít tolerate that.
[Erik points at the screen.]
ER: I want you to understand this, Tumaffi. Your reign of terror ends
_tonight_. Youíve done more harm than management ever should have
allowed. If theyíre too scared to do anything about it, then fine. Iíll be more
than happy to put a stop to your random acts of violence.
GM: Youíre not at one-hundred percent, Erik.
ER: One-hundred percent or not, no one else has the heart to step up to the
Samoan monster. No one else has the guts to look him in the eye. No one
else has the desire to put a stop to his madness. And body slamming the
big man? That wonít do a thing.
[He shakes his head.]
ER: You want to put a stop to this, Ricky? You donít challenge the man to
see if you can body slam him. Thatís just dumb. You get into the ring, you
get into his face, and you tell him whatís what. Tumaffi doesnít want to
listen to words? Fine. Iíll speak his language.
[Erik arches his fingers and thumb on his right hand. He looks down at his
ER: This is the great equalizer, Tumaffi. Even you canít stand up to the
GM: What about ďPistolĒ Paul Driscoll?
[Erik looks at Gordon.]
ER: What about him?
GM: Heís alluded to there being a bit of history between your family and
his. What history?
ER: Something he doesnít need to bring up. I have no problems with him,
unless he wants to make himself a problem, Gordon.
[Erik Reid walks off.]
