DF: Well Josh Smith, it’s all come down to this. A tag team main event between four guys who simply can’t stand one another.
JS: That’s right. There is tons of bad blood in this match and I can’t wait to see how this one plays out.
"In Bloom" by Nirvana blasts over the PA system as the lights go out and the crowd goes absolutely nuts. A ring of fire appears in the middle of the stage as Justin Daly rises up in the middle of it. He has the hood on his ring jacket up. He then walks through the fire and proceeds down the ramp with a yellow spotlight following him and ignoring that the fans are even there. Justin then climbs in the ring from the stairs and stands on the apron facing the stage. Justin takes the hood off his head, raises his arms as thunderbolts hit the ring of fire as the pyro then goes off. He then gets into the ring, unzips his jacket and puts it in his corner as the lights go back on.
AJ: The following contest is our main event of the evening, scheduled for one fall. Introducing first….at a total combined weight of 480 pounds….first, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada…..JUSTIN DAAALLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYY!!
DF: Justin Daly looks completely focused and ready to prove that he’s worthy of a shot at the Universal Championship!
JS: Well he’s got a tall mountain to climb Denzel.
"Take This Life" starts ripping out the first riffs as the arena darkens and a red smoke fills the stage. As the riff changes blue, red and purple strobe lighting flashes across the ring, ramp and stage as a white strobe flashes around the audience. As the vocals start Cage slowly walks out onto the stage with his head lowered. Cage whips his head up and starts to walk down the ring. He looks around as the red and blue spotlights flicker and flash all over the arena and the white spotlight follows him to the ring. He stops at the bottom of the ramp and looks to both sides before running and sliding into the ring. He stands and climbs the turnbuckle as the chorus begins. He holds out both arms and looks at the fans. He jumps down as the chorus ends and stands in the centre of the ring staring at the stage as the song continues. He lowers his head as the song fades after the second chorus.
AJ: And introducing his partner….from Boston, Massachusetts……..this is CAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGEE!!
DF: Now here’s a guy that is definitely on a mission. He busted Norton open last week and he’s had issues with Baron for about a month now. I see big things in the future for this man, because he’s hell bent on proving that is an impact player here in UHW.
JS: It’s put up or shut up time for Cage, so let’s see if he can rise to the occasion or fall flat on his face!
Onward to Victory hits the P/A system in the arena, after "The Pitbull Bows To No One" the song slows down a bit from the CD cut, a pyro goes off and Baron comes out from the back when the first "Onward To Victory" comes from the song. Baron walks over to both sides of the ramp and starts walking down the ramp, he walks past all the fans, looking down on them, and then climbs the stairs. Baron jumps over the top rope and then taunts to the crowd, he then sits on top of one of the turnbuckles and waits for his partner as he gets introduced.
AJ: And their opponents…at a total combined weight of 520 pounds….first, from Lincoln, Illinois…………..BAAAAAAROOOOOONNNN!!
DF: Baron is a man that has been searching for respect , wanting to prove that he belongs in this main event spot.
JS: Well he’s on the right path by not listening to what these fans want and forming an alliance with the great Mitch Norton!
DF: Oh stop drinking the Kool Aid, I’m begging you!
Now the spotlight hits the entranceway as Money Talks starts to play. Cassandra leads the way down the aisle for Mitch Norton. Cassie is wearing a low cut white halter top with black short shorts while Mitch has on a long black robe with MITCH spelled out in silver across the back of it. Cassie holds the ropes open for Mitch, then removes his robe, with the Universal Title belt strapped around his waist.
AJ: And his partner…accompanied by the First Lady Of UHW, Miss Cassandra…from Westchester County, New York…..he is the Universal Champion of the World and CEO of the VIP Club…….MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCHHHHHHHHHHHHH NORRRRRRRRRRRRTOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNN!!
Mitch unhooks the Universal Title belt and holds it high in the air, then he hands it to referee Michael St. Claire. Before St. Claire calls for the bell, Master Of Puppets starts up as GM Derek Johnson walks out.
DF: What the hell is this about?
JS: I don’t know, but it’s great to see our GM! He’s looking very good tonight!
DF: Stop sucking up Josh, he can’t hear you!
Ashley hands the mic to Derek, who gets mostly boos from the Dallas crowd.
DJ: Now I know you’re all wondering what I’m doing out here before our big main event match. Well, I’ll tell you what I’m doing out here! I have four of the greatest UHW superstars in one ring in a tag team extravaganza, but I thought to myself, we need something a little more special. We need a little more sizzle to this steak. We need to make people talk about this main event for years and years. And then it hit me. We’re in Dallas, Texas…..hell, we’re in Texas Stadium…. rich with football history, and wrestling history! So I thought it would be apropos to have ourselves a little Texas Tornado Match, which means No DQ…all four men in the ring at the same time…and anything goes! I guarantee that there will be a winner here tonight and that this match will end this night with a bang!
Mitch starts clapping with the fans and takes the mic from Derek.
Mitch: And you people can thank ME, Mitch Norton for giving Mr. Johnson that idea! There’s going to be no lame DQ finish in this match and when it’s all said and done, I will give you, the people of Dallas, a real hero to look up to, instead of a family of dead cowards!
As the crowd boos Mitch heavily, Justin attacks him and knocks the mic out of his hands. Cage attacks Baron and St. Claire calls for the bell to officially begin the match.
DF: I can’t believe those inflammatory comments by Mitch Norton! That was completely uncalled for!
JS: He may have crossed the line, I admit that.
DF: May have?
Justin bashes Mitch in the head with the mic while Cage kicks and chokes Baron out in the corner. Mitch tries to fight back with a hard kick to the midsection and a snapping right hand, but Justin rakes Mitch’s eyes, then he hits a flying clothesline that sends both men over the top rope. Justin lands on his feet and plays to the crowd, who gives him a loud ovation.
DF: What athleticism by Justin Daly!
Justin jumps up on the apron and as Mitch gets to his feet, he springboards off the ropes and connects with a standing moonsault. Back in the ring, Cage continues to work over Baron with kicks to the thigh and a European uppercut. Cage goes for an Irish Whip, but Baron reverses it into the far corner. Baron charges, but he misses an avalanche in the corner and Cage connects with an enzuiguiri to the back of the head. The ropes hold Baron up, but then Cage front facelocks him and gives him a DDT in the center of the ring.
JS: Justin and Cage are dominating right now! Mitch and Baron need to do something to get the momentum back in their favor!
Justin has found a television cable and he wraps it around Mitch’s neck. Cage gets Baron to his feet and takes him back over with a vertical suplex, then he makes his way to the top rope. The fans rise as Cage soars from the top rope and hits a picture perfect legdrop across the head of Baron. Back on the floor, Justin slams Mitch’s head into the ring apron and then into the steps. Mitch holds his head as he tries to get away from Justin, but Justin stays right on him, then he spins him around and chops him hard across the chest.
Justin scoops Mitch up and slams him on the floor, then he climbs onto the apron. But as he leaps, he misses an elbow drop, landing heavily on the floor. Mitch sees Cage applying a half Crab on Baron and slides into the ring, then he sneaks up behind Cage and rakes his eyes. Mitch directs some traffic with Baron as they whip Cage off the ropes and elevate him high in the air with a double backdrop. Mitch and Baron then stomp down Cage in the middle of the ring and Mitch then goes back onto the floor and finds a steel chair. He walks over to Justin and spins him around to hit him with the chair, but Justin thinks fast and drop toe holds Mitch, then he takes the chair and channels Sabu with an Arabian Facebuster.
DF: I tell you what, nobody brings their A game to Pay Per View quite like Justin Daly! He is such an electrifying talent!
JS: To me, he’s all flash and no substance.
Meanwhile, Baron whips Cage into the corner and follows him in with a running high knee, then he waistlocks him and takes him over with a belly to belly suplex. Baron goes off the ropes and then leaps in the air and drops a leg across Cage’s head, then he quickly pops up and hits another. Baron taunts the crowd and flips them off, then he picks Cage up and tosses him through the ropes to the floor.
JS: Pandemonium has indeed broken loose Denzel!
DF: And we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Mitch remains down on the floor and Justin sees Baron on the floor and he picks up the chair and walks over to him. Justin throws the chair at Baron, who catches it, but Justin then connects with the Van Daminator.
DF: You could hear the impact of that chair cracking the head of Baron!
JS: But Baron did not go down!
Mitch gives Justin a low blow, followed by a reverse DDT on the floor, but then Cage nails Baron with a kick below the belt, followed by a swinging neckbreaker. That leaves Cage and Mitch as the last two men standing and Mitch rolls back into the ring with Cage right behind him. Mitch catches Cage sliding into the ring with a series of kicks, followed by a big chop.
Mitch waistlocks Cage and gives him a release German suplex and plays to the crowd, but Cage pops right back up and punches Mitch in the face before hitting a standing dropkick. Cage whips Mitch off the ropes and lands a flying clothesline before leaving the ring and looking for a weapon under the ring.
DF: What weapon is Cage looking for?
JS: Oh no, that’s not what I think it is…
Cage pulls a black steel chain out from under the ring and rolls back into the ring. Cage wraps the chain around his fist, waiting for Mitch to get up.
JS: Stay down Mitch! Stay down!
Baron comes back into the ring and clubs Cage in the back with repeated forearms, then he full nelsons Cage and slams him to the mat. Baron takes the chain from around Cage’s hand and places it around his neck. Baron then flips Cage over the top rope and hangs him by the chain.
DF: Dammit, he’s hanging Cage! He’s gonna break his neck! Stop this!
Mitch rolls out to the floor and puts the bad mouth on Cage and starts picking his shots with lefts and rights to the gut. Justin comes over and starts attacking Mitch with right hands, then he whips him into the barricade. Justin gets into the ring and starts clubbing Baron with forearms across the back, finally forcing him to release the chain. Cage collapses to the floor as Justin staggers Baron with a clothesline, then a second one and a third one that he leaps through the air on. Justin looks out to the crowd, signaling for a powerbomb.
JS: He can’t lift a 280 pound guy up for a powerbomb!
Justin gets Baron up and instead of a powerbomb, he hits a piledriver.
DF: Who said anything about a powerbomb? Justin just dropped Baron on his head with a piledriver!
Mitch gets up on the apron and Justin sees him and gives him a baseball slide dropkick to the knee, causing Mitch’s face to bounce off the apron. Justin then goes out to the floor and looks under the ring, and he pulls out a table. Justin props the table up in the corner, but Baron is back on his feet and rocks him with a big left hand followed by a series of rolling German suplexes. Baron starts beating his chest, then he looks over at the table. Baron takes the table and sets it up in the middle of the ring. Mitch kicks the prone Cage several times on the floor, then he rolls back into the ring. He whispers something in Baron’s ear, then Baron goes up to the second rope. Mitch brings Justin to his feet, then he picks him up and hands him off to Baron. Baron looks around at the capacity crowd, then he leaps and drives Justin through the table with a powerbomb.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT……….HOLY SHIT………..HOLY SHIT………..HOLY SHIT!
JS: What a move by Baron! Justin Daly is done!
Mitch tells Baron he’s going to pin Justin, but Baron says he wants the pin. The two of them argue as Cassie is waving frantically on the floor for them to look, as Cage is back on his feet and is climbing the top rope.
DF: How is Cage doing this? He was literally hung out to dry and now he’s back on his feet!
Mitch and Baron turn around in unison and Cage flies through the air and takes them both down with a flying body press. St. Claire removes the pieces of the broken table out of the ring as Cage has found his second wind.
DF: Now is your time Cage!
Cage double underhooks Mitch and gives him a Tigerbomb, then he goes over to Baron and gives him the Breakdown.
DF: Cage might get him here….
1…………………..2………….and Mitch is there to make the save!
JS: That was desperation by Norton right there! He could sense the match slipping away!
Cage kicks Mitch in the midsection, then he throws him over the top rope. Cage then starts to choke out Baron with his boot, then he applies the Carnage Claw. Mitch climbs to the top rope and breaks up the submission with a double ax handle to the back of the head and points to his head, but now Justin is back on his feet. Mitch goes to hit Justin, but Justin ducks and then he catches Mitch with a series of lefts and rights. Justin sends Mitch off the ropes and gives him a spinebuster, then he and Cage set up Mitch for a double team move.
DF: What do Cage and Justin have in mind here?
Cage lifts Mitch up by his legs as Justin goes off the ropes and delivers a clothesline.
DF: Hart Attack Clothesline! Shades of The Hart Foundation!
As Justin and Cage soak in the cheers of the crowd, Baron clips Cage’s knee from behind, then he goes out to the floor, grabs Cage’s legs and crotches him on the post.
JS: That’ll leave a mark!
Baron pulls Cage out of the ring, then he grabs his legs and swings Cage into the barricade. Meanwhile, Justin attempts the Thunderstruck on Mitch, but Mitch is able to backdrop him over in desperation.
DF: Did you see Cage’s head hit that barricade? That was a vicious move by Baron!
Mitch gets Justin to his feet and whips him chest first into the corner, then he clotheslines him from behind. Mitch then gets on the second rope and hits a flying necksnap.
DF: This match has broken off into two parts, with Mitch and Justin on the inside of the ring and Baron and Cage on the outside!
JS: After going through that table, how much more punishment can Justin Daly take?
Mitch positions himself behind Justin, waiting for him to get up, then he locks in an Oriental Spike.
DF: This move is shades of the late, great Terry Gordy!
JS: That thumb is buried into the windpipe of Justin Daly! It won’t be long before he passes out!
Back on the floor, Baron tosses Cage over the barricade onto the unpadded concrete floor. Baron takes a drink out of a fan’s hand, takes a gulp and then smashes it over Cage’s head. Baron then front facelocks Cage and suplexes him on the floor.
In the ring, Justin is trying to fight out of the Oriental Spike. Justin battles back to his feet and buries a series of back elbows into Mitch’s midsection, but Mitch quickly counters with a backcracker.
JS: What a counter by Mitch! That was beautiful!
Mitch pulls the limp body of Justin back up and sets him up for the Birthright. Justin tries to fight out of it, but Mitch delivers it in the center of the ring.
DF: It looks like this one is all over..
1…………………2…………..and he picked him up! Why did he do that?
JS: He’s not done punishing Justin Daly yet, for all the world to see!
Mitch mounts Justin and starts to batter his head with straight right hands, then he goes out the floor and finds a toolbox under the ring, and he finds a screwdriver as his weapon of choice.
DF: Now what the hell is he going to do with that?
JS: Nothing pretty, that’s for sure!
The camera reconnects with Baron and Cage and as Baron continues to pummel Cage with straight right hands, Cage battles back with some stiff rights of his own, followed by repeated headbutts.
DF: Cage is fighting for survival! We can barely see what him and Baron are doing, so thank God for our cameras being right in the line of fire out there!
Baron holds his face, which is now busted open hard way after Cage’s headbutts Cage then takes a crutch from a random fan and jabs Baron in the midsection with it, then he breaks it over his back. Cage then grinds a piece of the crutch into Baron’s throat.
In the ring, Mitch holds the screwdriver in the air, then he stabs Justin in the head with it.
JS: This is the evil, maniacal side of Mitch coming out! He won’t rest until he makes Justin suffer unspeakable pain!
Mitch repeatedly stabs Justin in the head with the screwdriver and the blood spews from Justin’s head at an alarming rate.
DF: Stop it, you sick bastard! That’s enough!
JS: Derek Johnson made this a no rules match Denzel. Nobody can stop it!
Mitch starts to slap Justin across the face, then he takes his hand and wipes Justin’s forehead and rubs the blood over his chest.
DF: Look at him, acting like Justin’s blood on his hands and body is some kind of trophy!
Out in the crowd, Cage beats Baron down about the head and neck area with the piece of the crutch. Cage then goes into the stands, uses the railing to propel himself, and he launches onto Baron with a big splash.
Crowd: THIS SHIT’S AWESOME……………THIS SHIT’S AWESOME…………THIS SHIT’S AWESOME!!
JS: That was incredible! Cody Cage is insane!
DF: That just goes to show you how much he hates Baron! He’s willing to cripple himself to inflict as much pain on Baron as humanly possible!
Cage and Baron are down and out on the floor and back in the ring, Mitch is strutting around the ring preparing to put away Justin.
JS: I can see Mitch’s evil mind conjuring up more pain and suffering for Justin Daly!
Mitch motions for Cassie to give him a chair, which Cassie does. Mitch then motions for Cassie to give him a second chair, which she also does. Mitch stands one of the chairs up in the middle of the ring, then he drags Justin over to it on his knees, draping his head over the edge of the chair. Mitch grabs the other chair and holds it over his head, but he stops and shakes his finger back and forth. He calls for Cassie to come up on the apron and then he whispers something in her ear. Cassie goes over to the timekeeper’s table and she pulls out a sledgehammer and hands it to Mitch.
DF: What the hell is this? He’s going to cripple this man! And for what? So he’ll never challenge him for the Universal Title? This is disgusting!
As Mitch raises the sledgehammer over his head, someone in a hooded sweatshirt runs into the ring. The hooded man rips the sledgehammer out of Mitch’s hands and jabs him in the gut with it, then he cracks it over Mitch’s back.
JS: Who is that? Whoever he is, he has no business being here!
The hooded man flips the hood down and it’s revealed to be Kevin Von Erich.
DF: HOLY SHIT! THAT’S KEVIN VON ERICH!
Kevin throws the sledgehammer down to the ground and holds his hand up in the air.
DF: Could it be? Could it possibly be?
Kevin puts Mitch in the Von Erich Iron Claw, then he points to the sky as goes off the ropes and hits a discus punch that knocks Mitch out cold in the middle of the ring. The crowd goes absolutely bananas.
DF: What a moment! Kevin Von Erich is here at Retribution to get revenge on Mitch Norton for all things he said about his family!
Kevin helps Justin to his feet, then extends his hand to him. Justin shakes Kevin’s hand, and Kevin pats him on the back and leaves the ring. Meanwhile, in the crowd, the EMT’s have come out to check on Baron and Cage, who are still lying motionless.
DF: Now is the time Justin! Now is the time to finally pin Mitch Norton!
Justin gets Mitch to his feet and proceeds to hit him with Thunderstruck.
DF: The prettiest and possibly most dangerous move in wrestling, the flip piledriver!
Justin looks around at the sea of fans cheering for him, soaking in the moment, but instead of pinning Mitch, he instead goes to the floor and looks for a weapon.
JS: Is he an idiot? Why isn’t he going for the pin?
DF: Because sometimes pinning a man just isn’t enough, especially after Mitch tried to end his career!
Justin pulls out a ladder from under the ring and pushes it into the ring. Cassie is screaming for Mitch to get up, but he’s not moving. Justin sets up the ladder in a corner of the ring and climbs to the top of it.
JS: He’s plumb loco! Completely insane!
DF: Over 70,000 people are on their feet! Justin Daly is standing on top of a 20 foot ladder prepared to finish off Mitch Norton!
Justin looks up to the heavens and then jumps high in the air and lands on Mitch with a big splash. He rolls around on the mat in pain, then he crawls on top of Mitch.
DF: 1…………………….2…………………………………3!! He got him!
Justin Daly has beaten Mitch Norton!
JS: I didn’t think it could be done Denzel, but keep in mind this was a tag team match! Things would be different if it was 1 on 1….and if Kevin Von Erich, of all people, didn’t show up!
AJ: Here are your winners…………the team of CAGE AND JUSTIN DALY!!
DF: This may sound cliché, but it needs to be said! Anything can happen in UHW! You’ll never know who will show up! And let’s not forget about Baron and Cage and the hell that they put their bodies through tonight!
JS: Here’s the replay of that insane dive that Cage did onto Baron onto a concrete floor! Both of them could have serious internal damage!
Cassie checks on Mitch in the ring as Justin climbs to the top rope to take in the cheers of his fans, then he motions with his hands that he wants the Universal Title.
DF: I believe Justin Daly has earned the right to face Mitch Norton in a Universal Title Match, and I believe he can take the Title from Mitch!
JS: We’ll just have to see about that Freewood!
DF: That’s all the time we have! Thank you for joining us and good night from Texas Stadium!
