image for Murdoch-Gates Throwdown: Let's Get It On!
Battle Royal image chosen by promoters

After destroying every somewhat objective news company that he has acquired, Rupert Murdoch is going after Microsoft's latest hostile takeover target, Yahoo.

Murdoch, recent manipulator of The Wall Street Journal, stood in the street in front of the stock market with a megaphone and announced his challenge to Microsoft's Bill gates:'Are you ready to RRRumble!? You have grown soft, BG and Google is capturing the search engine market and only Murcoch can blind the goo-goo-googley eyes of this computer industry upstart."

Usually demur Gates in surprising WWF fashion appeared above the famous stock street in a super-hero's costume: "I am Micro-Yahoo-Soft Man who will meld the metals of Yahoo with micro soft fibers and forge the search engine of the future!"

The battle royal between the Seattle Slammer and the Aussie Agressor will be held in a steel cage in the Felt Forum as soon as promoters can agree on contractual details.
