Tonight begins the war with that poor excuse of a wrestling organization that runs out of that backwater, redneck, illegal immigrant infested dirt hole called Oklahoma. Its ran by a poor fat drunken slob who cant keep himself sober long enough to run anything right. He seems to think that the world needs another wrestling promotion. All American Championship Wrestling is all the world needs. We are the premier wrestling organization in the world today. We shall prove it to Next Level Wrestling, to Gordon Stone, and to any non believers. Now, allow me to introduce my top soldier leading the charge. Ladies and gentlemen, he is your World Heavyweight Champion... "Ravishing" Rick Rude!!!
The music hits...

Rick Rude: Now, what I'd like is for all you fat, lazy, Hartford sweathogs to quiet down while I show the ladies what a real man and World Champion looks like.
Rude removes his robe revealing his physique and the World Title around his waist.
Rude: Feast your eyes on this "Dr. Death" Steve Williams. You are looking at a real World Champion. That piece of tin around your waist is but a poor imitation of my belt. If you were any type of real man Steve Williams you would face me in the ring to show who the real champion really is. I think the AACW fans and even you yourself know just who is the real Champion. I remember not long ago Steve Williams that you and I competed in a tag team match against each other and I put you down for the three count after the RUDE AWAKENING. We meet again Steve Williams and it is going to be the same ending once again. You can go back to your second rate organization with your head hung low... but dont be ashamed Steve Williams, there is no shame losing to the Ravishing One...now hit my music!
