Two men are fighting. One is a tall muscular man, with championship gold around his waist. Ted DiBiase. The other is a shorter man, but of similar build. Evan Bourne. The championship is not contested in this fight, but it could be at a later date, so both men are giving their all. Bourne scores a wild kick to DiBiase’s head, knocking him down. The crowd chants, "Bourne, Bourne, Bourne!"
Bourne ascends to the top rope of the four-sided ring. He leaps forward, while simultaneously performing a backflip, his signature manoeuvre. He crashes onto DiBiase and presses his shoulders into the canvas mat. The referee counts to three, and the bout is over. Bourne has won the matchup.
Photographers snap pictures of the madness as the crowd comes out of their seats, chanting wildly for the winner. You are at a professional wrestling show, where all this is has been scripted. You know it, the fans know it and the wrestlers know it, but nobody seems to care.
Professional wrestling is a sport, no matter how you look at it. It has referees, superstars and professional organizations running it, but people still label it as "phony and fake." However, that is why fans watch it every week on television. Bourne versus DiBiase is one such showcase of this scripted spectacle, which took place as the opening match at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton on Sept. 11.
Photographers are itching to get that one great shot. Writers are scribbling down ideas for stories they can print, and everyone is on the edge of their seat. Make no mistake. Pro wrestling is scripted, but the moves still inflict injury. Before every show, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) broadcasts a safety message, along with a "do not try this at home" disclaimer.
According to a local trainer, each fall to the canvas mat equals the force of a 10 km/h car crash on the neck and upper back muscles.
The WWE Champion, Sheamus, enters the ring, and berates the Hamilton fans once again, as their "city smells of molten garbage and steel put together."
The crowd quickly turns hostile with loud boos and jeers, followed by chants of "you suck." Everyone is on their feet waiting to see who is going to come down and fight the first Irish-born WWE Champion. Their excitement is elevated again when Randy Orton’s music plays through the arena and the audience is as louder than ever as the WWE’s biggest hero comes to the ring. After 20 minutes of fighting, both are fatigued and grasping for one big move that can end the match and seal their victory.
Sheamus attempts his signature big boot to the head, but Orton evades, reversing the move into his own signature move, the RKO. Sheamus escapes just before Orton is able to strike, rolling out of the ring. Here is where the change happens of the hero winning all night, which the audience does not expect.
There is a chase around ringside and Sheamus grabs the WWE Belt, hitting Orton square in the face with it. The referee ends the match as a disqualification for Sheamus, which gives Orton the victory. However, the championship cannot change hands on a disqualification, so Sheamus retains the belt.
The crowd is irate at this act of cowardice, with more raucous chants of "you suck," directed at the pale-skinned champion, often referred to as the "Human Jar of Mayonnaise." Sheamus parades around the ring with his belt, claiming he is the best in the world and is unbeatable. The audience starts to scream "RKO," wanting to see Orton’s signature move. Sheamus tells the crowd to be silent and listen to him, not realizing Orton has gotten back to his feet and is now stalking the champion. Sheamus turns around, only to have his face mashed into the floor as a result of an RKO. The crowd erupts with cheers for the cheated challenger, who takes a moment to pose on the top rope before exiting the arena.
This is the match before the main event, which will see villains "The Nexus" versus four Canadian heroes named Chris Jericho, Edge, and the Hart Dynasty comprised of Tyson Kidd and David Hart-Smith, who are relatives of Canadian wrestling legend Bret "The Hitman" Hart.
The Nexus enter the arena to emphatic boos. Nexus leader Wade Barrett takes the microphone and explains how they are going to defeat the four Canadians, and move onto "bigger things." The Hart Dynasty enter the arena, but are wise to not fight just yet, as they are outnumbered four to two. Chris Jericho (another top WWE star) enters the arena to loud ovation. Jericho and the Harts enter the ring slowly, as they are one person short. The crowd falls silent, waiting for the last teammate to arrive. The sound system plays the phrase, "You think you know me." The crowd comes unglued and gives a standing ovation for Toronto superstar Edge as he makes his entrance.
The referee begins the match.
Wrestling holds are applied, punches and kicks thrown, the audience is firmly held in the suspension of disbelief, which is what professional wrestling is all about.
Thirty minutes of non-stop action goes by.
Barrett goes for his trademark move "Wasteland," which slams his opponent back first into the ground, hoping to get the win for his team. Edge slides off Barrett’s shoulders, springs off the ropes and strikes Barrett with his own signature move the "Spear," a shoulder tackle to the midsection. Edge pins Barrett to the mat for a count of three, winning the match for his team. The crowd erupts one final time as Edge and his teammates celebrate their monumental win. Good has triumphed over Evil.
Edge takes the microphone and tells the crowd, "I may be from Toronto, but 18 years ago I had my first match in this ring, in this very building. This is special to me." He pauses to wave to a woman sitting in the front row, as he says, "That’s my mom by the way."
The crowd applauds the "local" hero and his contributions to entertaining countless fans, as well as his mother who permitted her son to become a wrestler in the first place, knowing the risks involved.
Jericho then takes the microphone, wrapping the show up with his speech of, "My mom isn’t here to see me tonight, but that doesn’t matter because all of my fans are here. We will be back soon, because Hamilton is Jericho."
