Ever since being forced to run the gamut by UAHLU Commissioner Barry Bettman, Jon has had to start at the bottom to gain a shot at Good News Hughes’s UAHLU Air Hockey Championship. Just in October of 2014, Jon defeated Commissioner Bettman’s cousin Beary in a close battle to become the #6 contender in the UAHLU rankings.
Now, with his back against the wall, Jon now has to deal with a new authority figure within the league. Bettman’s confidant, Bladimir Blutin, who is currently the International Representative of the UAHLU, announced that he had found an opponent for Jon in December of last year. His opponent: Ed Scanlon of the Hardcore BF Podcast,
Ed Scanlon, a man with STRONG Irish heritage (hence Blutin’s choice to face Jon), is known as a gentle giant in many circles. His easy-going demeanor is showcased on the podcast he is in with Jon.
However, it has been stated that Scanlon has an underlying mean streak when it comes to competitive sports. A Tag Team champion from his days in independent wrestling, Ed hates to lose. When this contest was announced, stories have come forward, in particular from Play-By-Play man ‘Stu Hart’, that Scanlon has been in deep training in the game of air hockey.
‘Stu’ has claimed that Ed is a lethal combination of Al MacInnis and Craig MacTavish. His vicious air hockey game might have put a bit of fear into Jon, but after listening to the Hardway Podcast, he is showing tunnel vision into his battle and has one thing in mind: ruining Good News Hughes’ stranglehold on the UAHLU Air Hockey Champion.
Right here is the audio placed on YouTube setting up the battle between Ed and Jon for the #5 contendership in the UAHLU rankings. Enjoy.
