RING ROOKIES 4: Rope a Dope
Big Barry Burke is 240 pounds' worth of California competition-grade muscle squeezed into the spangliest red trunks in the universe. He's a god, and he knows it. He flashes his big guns at the mirror and smiles with self-satisfaction. But fellow BGEast first-timer Zori Leone of Texas thinks Barry's a poser and says so right to his face. Zori's a big guy too all right, stronger and heavier than most wrestlers at BG East. In fact he has a fine-looking pro wrestler's build, some might even call it ideal, but he is definitely no match for Big Barry in bulk, definition, and elegant v-taper, not by a long shot.
Zori is so "ridiculously overconfident" (Barry's words, not ours) that he believes he is both buffer than Burke and better at wrestling, as they have both graced indie pro rings and Zori thinks he's ready for BG East domination. It's hard to tell whether Barry is more amused or shocked by Zori's big talk. He tells the Texan that he could beat him with one hand tied behind his back. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" Zori dares him. Barry blinks, hesitating before accepting a challenge that he inadvertently set for himself. And luckily there just so happens to be a length of white cord at ringside, perfect for tying Barry's left arm behind him.
Zori binds Barry's left arm and secures it by wrapping the excess rope around the bodybuilder's waist. The contest begins with a test of strength, a highly irregular test of strength: Zori's two hands against Barry's one. Still, Barry makes Zori all but cry as he bends him backwards and gives the left arm a brutal and emphatic twist.
Barry can do one-armed pushups "all day long," he announces and then proceeds to pummel the upstart with right-armed elbow drops. A badly aimed elbow drop, however, turns the advantage to Zori, and the shrewd and constantly calculating Texan targets the big guy's free arm for punishment, bending it in every possible direction, twisting, digging his elbow into it, and stomping it under his boot. Crazed by delusions of greatness, he threatens to rip Barry's arm right out of its socket, calling it a "little twig arm" ... despite the biceps big as Zori's head. Delusional or not, Zori savvily takes advantage of the situation, and Big Bad Barry's in some serious deep shit.
