Wolverine was drunk on a gallon of Everclear when he was shanghaied by some hillbilly underground mutant fighting ring promoters. They shocked Wolverine and threw him into a fight with Griz, who came out from New York to make a name for himself in the ring. Wolverine took a small beating, due to the fact he was still drunk, then popped his claws and cut off Griz's head.
