Come closer and listen, it's that time of year, when the wrestlers of Sckackdown share the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
It's the ultimate underdog story of a people of small number and meek stature toppling a true behemoth of a foe.
And emerging triumphant, though constantantly vigilant, as they navigate their way through the annuls of history and remember the glories and tragedies of their people.
Long ago, in the land of Egypt, a wicked pharoah essentially laid the Smack Down on the Jewish people.
They strained and struggled under the weight of their burdens. Until one mother could not bear to see her child suffer due only to his heritage. So, she laid him in a basket and sent him down the river where he would be discovered by an Egyptian princess and raised as royalty.
Having seen the cruel treatment of the Jewish people, this boy now grown called Moses, after a brief run in with a burning bush, demanded that the Pharoah release his slaves. Predictably, this request was not met with compliance, and Moses was forced to unleash a stream of plagues to make his point, not least of which being the release of wild beasts throgh Pharoahs city.
With Pharoahs begrudged blessing, Moses urged his people to hurry away from their homes and into the desert.
Realizing the financial strain of compensating his labor force, Pharoah threw a sucker punch and sent his army to bring Mose sand his people back under his subjugation - a move that came so quickly that there was no time for the fleeing slaves to let the bread that would sustain them on their journey to a new home rise.
But Moses, backed by divine favor, had an ace up his sleeve. With the thump of his staff against the banks of the Red Sea, Moses willed its water to part, creating a pathway to liberty and leaving the Pharoah and his forced without a paddle, literally.
