Leva cosplaying as Pee-wee Herman.  The secret word of the day is “three.”  Now you all know what to do when anyone says the secret word, right?
SCREAM REAL LOUD! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!  As you can imagine much shenanigans transpire with the audience popping every time the ref counts to three.  Marti Bell gets increasingly frustrated by the entire thing.

All in all it’s a pretty good opening bout, not in a workrate sense, but in the fact that it gets the crowd really into the match.
