The Sheik Tugboat Story - PART 4


PART 4 - ROYAL RUMBLE 1991

Later on in the night

The Hulkster stood next to

The true Immortal

Sean Mooney

And instantly started spouting his 4 Demandments

The training

The vitamins

The prayers

Believing in oneself

Dedicated the Rumble match

To his #1 Hulkamaniac

Mean Gene

Laid up at home

Broken

Bruised

Beaten

He also did the selfless act

Dedicated the Rumble to the troops

The US Military

For their service

Pride

American heart

In the Persian Gulf

AND THEN

Looking dead eye into the camera lens

Serious

Lazer focused

“Tugboat brother

The truth will come out

And you will see

That when you betray Hulkamania

Revenge will be dished, brother

The war has just begun

And you SHEIK Tugboat

Might be WWF champion

But I will make sure

It isn’t for long

And whatcha gonna do

When HULKAMANIA

AND AMERICA

RUNS WILD ON YOU

BROTHER!”

The snarls

The growls

End the interview

PROMPTLY

SABA F’N SIMBA

Sgt. Slaughter

Who entered #30

It breaks down quick

Simba misses a clothesline

Quake scoops him out

Like yesterday’s newspaper

Down to three

Instantly

The Quake and the Sarge

Double team Hulk

Pummel him

Abuse him

Wreck him

Sarge hooks him in the clutch

Noogiemania running wild

Hulkster flat on his back

The Quake then hits the ropes

Runs back

7.6 on the Richter Scale

All of a sudden

SUPERMAN

Hulkster fires up

Bumps the Sarge

Gets the Natural Disaster

One punch

Two punches

Three punches

BIG BOOT

Axe bomber

Out goes Earthquake

Slaughter cowers in the corner

One punch

A point to the crowd

Everyone on their feet

HARD IRISH WHIP

Sternum first

Slaughter hit SO HARD

Bounced up

And OVER

HOGAN WINS

The winner of the Rumble

Back-to-back years

Crowd erupts

HOGAN MUST POSE

America gets a W

But on the top of the entrance way

Right in front of the big

WWF logo

Stands the new WWF champion

SHEIK TUGBOAT

Championship over shoulder

Arms crossed

Seriousness and anger

Across his face

The Hulkster does not notice

But the Sheik did

Victory for Hulk

Is a loss for him

The road has been paved

A collision course

En Route to a

CROSSROADS
