BB: We’re back here in Merr—uh, CSWA Auditorium, and about ready to kick things off in the ring. But since tonight is a special celebration, we’ve got Rudy Seitzer on call to visit with some of the fans here tonight and find out about their favorite PRIMETIME memories. I understand he also caught up with returning superstar Steve Radder earlier.
(CUTTO: Earlier in the day. The camera shows Rudy Seitzer sitting in the ring along with Steve Radder, both on ringside chairs they’ve hijacked. Radder is clad in street clothes, a pair of jeans and black t-shirt.)
RADDER: Sure enough, there's been a lot of PRIMETIME moments for Steve Radder, and a lot of them happened what seems like ... ages ago.
Running with Eddy Love and Kevin Powers was always a good time ... until those little (bleep)es stuck a knife in my back. That's beside the point ... of the three of us left, only Powers is still in active competition ... and barely at that. He's just a few hours from being put out of his misery, anyway.
RADDER: You could say I'm fond of the time I was crowned CSWA World Champion ... that was surely a moment deserving of a "favorite moment" ... except for the fact that my title "run" was far from a "PRIMETIME moment". That's, of course, in the past, and what's in the past should stay there, or something. That's what I hear, at least.
(A smirk crosses Radder's face.)
RADDER: As much as Steve Radder enjoys hearing himself talk, it's time to get to the point. Gotta get back into the gym to shake off the rust so I can shake one off on Aho and Powers later on. The favorite PRIMETIME moment for Yours Truly is ... any always will be ... that first Top Contenders Match against The Worm. (Note: It happened at PRIMETIME in Seattle -- September 3, 1998.) Mark Vizzack, if you remember. Probably not ... poor kid's fragile psyche just seemed to be worn down enough for him to run off. Even though The Worm eventually found a soft spot with Steve Radder, that was a match for the ages ... so wherever you are, Vizzy, here's to you.
