Background|History: Cavanagh grew up a street kid in Hell’s Kitchen. His father was rather important in the beighborhood’s criminal circles. Once his father was sentenced to 80 years when John was 14, John took to the streets. He learned how to fight and survive while being able to manipulate at a young age—most of this plays into his ruthless habits inside of the ring and with his stable of cronies that have followed him from the Kitchen to the ring. Sometimes Cav’s street life May intertwine with his professional life, for better or for worse, as his stablemates also happen to work for him in the neighborhood.

Entrance: A guitar chord is heard following by a voice “Behold the Kings. The King of Kings.” Lights begin to flicker with the music “on your knees, dog”. At the 0:13 mark, out from the darkness of the tunnel emerges the “One Man Dynasty” John Cavanagh in a hooded black robe with green trim, he heads down towards the ring accompanied by his valet Shannon Riley who is wearing a tight fitting and revealing dress. The two walk to the ring arm and arm they ignore the fans and Cavanagh trash talks to the camera. They reach the ring and Cavanagh walks up the steps, outstretches his hand for his valet who carefully walks up the steel steps. Cavanagh grabs the middle rope and raises it while simultaneously pushing the bottom rope down with the foot allowing Shannon to easily enter without revealing anything much to the chagrin of the men in the front row. Cavanagh steps in to the ring and outstretches his arms as Shannon grabs him from the side. Shannon takes his robe off as Cavanagh helps her out of the ring. Cavanagh turns his view to the inside of the ring as he prepares for the match.
