“I stand here before God and My Father in Heaven tonight, as I said I would be Worlds Heavyweight Champion. In the tradition of Lou Thesz, in the tradition of Jack Brisco, of the Brisco Brothers; of Dory Funk Jr, of Terry Funk, the man who will never die. As the REAL Nature Boy, Buddy Rogers, upstairs tonight. From the Harley Races, to the Barry Windhams, to the..Ric Flairs..I accept this heavyweight title..

..wait a second..

Wait a second.

Of Kerry Von Erich. Of the fat man himself Dusty Rhodes..

This is it tonight, dad! 

God, that’s beautiful.

And Rick Steamboat..

And they can all..kiss..my..ass!

BECAUSE I am not the man who accepts a torch to be handed down to me from an organization that died, R.I.P, seven years ago. The Franchise, Shane Douglas, is the man who ignites the new flame of the SPORT of professional wrestling!

Tonight, before God and My Father as witness, I declare myself, The Franchise, as the NEW ECW Heavyweight Champion of the World! We have set out to change the face of professional wrestling, so tonight let the new era begin. The era of the sport of professional wrestling. The era of the Franchise. The era of the E C W.”
