All Danny Boy Hawkins wanted to do was share the spotlight with his good friend, Ron Powers. Powers doesn’t share. The Classic Wrestling Championship is on the line as Danny Boy fights #1 heavyweight contender Ron Powers.
Since Powers’ attack on Hawkins last month, the big man has become obsessed with the Classic title. He even sent a letter to MWR’s Brian Kelley addressing Danny and Executive Director Herb Simmons:
To whom it may concern,
If you are pregnant, weak at heart, cry easily, or faint at the sight of pure physical torture, do not go to East Carondelet this Saturday night. Danny, I’m glad to see your confidence is intact, because this is the only way I can get you in the ring, and that confidence will dissipate quickly once we lock up. Here is a training tip: practice falling down. The past is the past. I will punish you beyond belief. Please ask your mother, Julie and the girls to stay home. They don’t need the trauma. Herb, this is just the beginning of the end for you. I will run through everyone in your dressing room quicker than you can get more wrestlers on speed dial. After Saturday, Herb, I will be your champion. Southern Illinois will bow, and there is NOTHING you can do about it.
Powers still does not have a motive for his betrayal other than greed and jealousy. He even goes as far as to threaten his promoter. Hawkins has to win and stop this out-of-control Powers.
Unfortunately, this has turned into a vendetta. Fortunately, it will be fun to watch.
