Flash Fiction #24 - Rome In

(Years ago, I did a couple of these things based on the All In wrestling event that would be the prelude of the All Elite Wrestling promotion. I found this one laying around and figured I'd share it. It's better late than never, I suppose.)

Cody stared at the mammoth man in front of him and couldn't help but admire his big arms, his nicely maintained long hair, and his tribal tatoos. Then he broke from his stupor and got down to business.

"See, here's the thing, Joe," he said, "We just sold out this building in less than 30 minutes. And as much as we'd like to have you, I don't know if you're a right fit for our show."

The other man shrugged. "Whatever, man. What do I care? Do you know how many Manias I main evented?"

"And I'm not taking anything away from that," Cody said without a hint of emotion. "But I've seen those Mania main events and the last time I checked, everyone was booing the shit out of you. I don't know that I'd want that kind of reaction on my show."

The other man then proceeded to raise his right forearm upwards and started rubbing it with his other hand. Cody stared blankly.

"What the fuck are you doing?"

"I'm the big dog, bro," the other man replied, "I gotta look strong!"

Cody scoffed. "Dude, my dog is the only big dog around here."

"Oh... well, fuck this. I'm going back to Vince."
