Johnny sprints out to edge of the ring and then points back, waiting for his partner, Donovan Moore, to emerge. Vito Supremo follows with enthusiastic clapping and pointing. Houston then leaps to the ring apron and over the top rope into the ring bouncing off the ropes while Moore enters the rings silently with his fiancee Denise. Moore’s eyes are locked onto his opponent if already in the ring or towards the entrance if waiting.
