We stare right into the nappy head of Raven to start the show. He cuts one of his signature ECW promos about being a tortured young kid growing in the late 1970s while sitting alone in a dark room. Two years later, “Freaks and Geeks” debuted on NBC TV about a bunch of misfit teenagers trying to figure it all out in the late 1970s. COINCIDENCE? Probably. Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore”.

And now, we transition to see those kind of girls who Raven could never get in high school: THE NITRO GIRLS!

Backstage, the Giant is confronted by police and Doug Dellinger and handed a PIECE OF PAPER~! Is it a warrant? Is it a restraining order? What’s going on?!

Michael Buffer asks us if we are ready to rumble. Indeed, we are. NITRO GIRLS! It always seems like Fyre is in the back of these dance routines. Not cool.
