The episode starts off like a documentary saying "it was the nuttiest match ever, all because of these two nuts (Chicken Man, and The Best) and roasted nuts", then Ric Flair also says that the match was nuts. Then it cuts to Mysterious Gus saying, "some people wonder if professional wrestling is real, well I'll tell this, what happened that night is as real as this talking dinosaur". Next it cuts to the narrator saying, "It all began as a simple grudge match between the Chicken Man and the Best, in the long history of this sport, perhaps no has ruffled as much feathers than Chicken Man", then is shows Chicken man fighting off the other wrestling contestants. Chicken man began his wrestling career like most wrestlers do, he demanded he wanted to be a wrestler, McDimple said "What are you crazy or something ?!", then Chicken Man said "yeah", McDimple hires Chicken Man and says to the camera, "see you have to be crazy to be a wrestler", then Chicken Man and McDimple shake hands for a while, the narrator then says, "but his illustrious career would come to an end the night of the nuttiest match ever".

The Narrator goes on about how a lot of wrestlers are prideful, some are overconfident, or just plain in love with themselves , but only one in the history of this sport was presumptuous enough to call himself  The Best. The Best demands 10 of the best bologna pockets from a fancy restaurant, nothing for the best because I'm The Best. The Best then talks about how Chicken Man vs. The Best was the match that ended his carrer in professional wrestling, the he says to go ask Mysterious Gus about that one. All of Mysterious Gus' life he dreamed of becoming a professional wrestler, then the Narrator talks about how Mysterious Gus got to where he is today, a roasted nuts sales guy. It then cuts to how the match was becoming such a buzz with interviews with The Best and Chicken Man. And what would become the nuttiest match ever began like any other. The fight began with Chicken Man tossing The Best and ended with a body slam, the fans were hungry for roasted nuts and The Best claims to be the owner of Ric Flair's mansion. The best had got the best idea ever to get the fans' roasted nuts, while Chicken Man was pecking on Turnbuckle Bag.

The Best makes a deal with the Chicken Man, if he stops winning so much then he'll have all the roasted nuts. Then Ric Flair catches The Best on his property then chases him down. When the Gorilla asked for some more nuts he starts to get suspicious that there aren't anymore nuts, The Best and Chicken Man couldn't give back the nuts because they ate them all. The narrator says since the dawn of time fans have sat politely in their seats and eating roasted nuts from a safe distance, the Gorilla starts to say that those lousy wrestler took all of our nuts, some other fans start to get mad and say "how are we suppose to enjoy a nice wrestling match without any nuts?!!?", "What are we savages!?!", The wrestling fans start to rebel against those who done them wrong and go into battle with the wrestlers. Chicken Man and The Best bailed out on Mysterious Gus and left him with a crowd of 10,000 angry fans to fight but they also let him become the wrestling professional he wasn't, and Mysterious Gus won the nuttiest match ever. McDimple had fired all three of them because with no fans comes no money. So the wrestlers talk about how it was fun while it lasted, and Ric Flair said that eating The Best was the best slice of pizza he ever had.
