Tony Schiavone interviewed “Mad King” Eddie Kingston and Ortiz!
Ortiz: “My friend, Eddie Kingston, has completely lost it. He’s fed into the mind games from the House of Black. I shouldn’t be talking to you, Schiavone. I should be talking to Eddie. Why don’t you come out here and we’ll settle this like men, face to face.”
Kingston came to the ring with a steel chair in hand!
Ortiz: “You were gonna hit a woman? In our world you don’t do that. You know that. I know for a fact that’s not how your mother or father raised you. You’re coming out here with a chair? You know what bothers me the most? What would our mentor Homicide say? That you’re a coward. You’re a fake tough guy!”
Eddie heard enough and smacked Ortiz with the steel chair!
