ENTRANCE: ‘NY State of Mind’ hits the sound system and the fans jump to their feets to boo and yell insults as the monster Joe Baronne steps onto the top of the entrance ramp. The Problem Solver makes a gun sign with his right hand and slowly aims around the arena before slowly walking to the ring. Baronne steps clear over the top rope and stares out at the crowd as the music fades out.
