STRANGLEHOLD
On November 9, 2002 @8:00 P.M.
From The Pyramid in Memphis, Tennessee




The scene opens up and instantly, Mr. Follett is seen. He sits at his desk and carries a huge look of disappointment on his face.

Follett: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another Follett Produced Saturday Night Stranglehold. Did everyone enjoy last week's show? Well I know about five guys who enjoyed the Main Event, five guys who even against my own threats and security precautions.......ruined last week's show. But that's okay, because if The Kovenant wants to play hardball.....then we will. So tonite folks, I want you all to sit back and relax.......relax as you watch the very speacial "Kovenant Punishment Night" edition of Stranglehold. Thats right, tonite you may see Rilo in his very last UWA appearance when he takes on Kurrgan, "I Quit Match"...........your also going to see Judas in a match against the returning UWA Phenomenon, Shadow.............and half of tonite's Double Main Event will feature Reverand Snow and Kevin Cosmos, The Kovenant ring leaders, face off against Michael Edwards and a mystery opponent. Now to tell you all the truth, I don't even have the fondest clue who this opponent will even be yet...........but I promise you Snow and Cosmos that it will be someone who definitly punishing on your asses! Enjoy the show people.


(8 p.m. hits, the opening segment and theme music plays.......Stranglehold is underway. Inside a packed Pyramid, thousands of fans are on their feet as dozens of Pyros fire off from every direction. The cameras pan the wild crowd. Several fans are shown holding up signs reading:)

"Judas has Gonnorhea!"
"Lick me Justice!"
"Heil Furious"
"Go Little Nicky!"
"Why Fly Why?"
"Shadow is gonna bury Judas!"
AND
"Ron Rose has tits?"

(After a few moments, the camera angle shifts toward the announcer's table where Trent Hoffman and John Manning are ready to kick off another show.)

Hoffman: Welcome Ladies and gentlemen to "The Pyramid" in Memphis, Tennessee. We are Live, we are sold out, and we are ready for another explosive Stranglehold! Sitting next to me always, my partner John Manning, and John what do you think about Mr. Follett denoting tonite as "Kovenant Punishment Night" here on the show?

Manning: Well Trent, last week Mr. Follett warned The Kovenant to stay away from the Main Event or they would pay. Of course those idiots didn't listen, so tonite they will all be punished like a bunch of disobedient children!

Of Course this week has featured massive confusion and alot of hype concerning tonite's Main Event as well as the Pay Per View "November Reign III" that is scheduled for the twenty forth. And John, Mike Furious was seriously injured at Rampage two nights ago and is said to still be in Berlin, Germany being Medically attended to.....his career reportedly over now and not to mention Jonny Fly's action's as of late.

Well what can we say, of course Mike Furious is definitly out for good. Aparently he suffered a crack in his skull and that was at the hands of Jonny Fly. Of course Fly on Thursday winning the shot at the UWA World title.....and then getting arrested the next night in connection with a liquor store robbery! What an idiot!

Well, things are definitly heating up in the UWA, however we now have no number one contender and Michael Edwards is without a partner!


~Preliminary Bout~
Travis Williams vs Jason Jet


"You Make Me Sick" hits as Jason Jets steps out and walks down to the ring. The fans give Jet a mixed reaction as he strikes a few poses.

Well, let's see if Jason Jet can deliver a blow to one half of the UWA Tag Team Champions.

The Williams Brothers proved they're a good tag team, but let's see how Travis can cope in a singles match.

"I Wanna be Sedated" hits as Travis Williams walks through the curtain to a chorus off boos. Travis ignores the insulting crowd as he makes his way to the ring. The bell sounds and two men lock up. Jet ducks under and grapples Travis from the back and flings Travis over with German Suplex.

Jason Jet coming out with an early advantage.

Travis gets back to his feet while rubbing his head and he doesn't see Jet coming as he's knocked down flat with a clothesline. Jet quickly follows up by stomping away at Travis who's trapped in the corner. Jet backs off as Travis gets back up, both men meet in the center and collide as they exchange right hands. Travis gets the upper hand as he irish whips Jet into the ropes, Jet bounces back and is met by a big boot from Travis. Travis bounces off the side ropes and drops an elbow into the chest of Jason Jet.

Travis Williams is gaining some momentum.

Jet rolls back to his feet as he delivers a side elbow to the throat of Travis. Jet throws Travis into the ropes, Travis bounces back and Jet tries a back body drop, but Travis catches him in a DDT.

Huge DDT by Travis Williams!

Travis Williams quickly follows up with a cover.......

Kickout by Jason Jet!

Travis pulls Jet to his feet and irish whips him to the corner. Travis tries a power clothesline, but is caught by a big boot from Jet. He then follows it up with a running bulldog. Jet stands by the ropes as he waits for Travis to get up while signaling for the POP. Christian Williams quickly walks down to the ring with a chair in hand.

It's Christian Williams!

What's he doing here?

I don't know, but the ref doesn't see him!

Travis slowly gets up, Jet gets set to take off, but the chair from Christian Williams cracks over his back, and Jet staggers forward in the small cradle of Travis.

THE BELL SOUNDS!

Travis Williams pulled it off! He proves that he can fight out of the Tag Team Division.

The bell sounds as "I Wann Be Sedated" plays and the Williams Brothers exit to the back.


The scene opens up in the backstage area. To the suprise of the crowd, Jonny Fly is seen heading down the hallway. He walks up to a door and knocks. The faceplate on the door reads "Mr. Follett". He knocks again and suddenly the door swings open. UWA President Alia, is seen and seems to be arguing with Follett.

Alia: ......gimme a break John, Kovenant Punishment Night......you can't get away with this!

Follett: You know what Alia, I don't give a sh*t if you are the President of this Company. This is my show and I have one-hundred percent control over what goes on in that ring. You can call all the shots you want over at Rampage, but this is my roof your under. If you don't like it, tough!

No I don't like it and as someone who has more Corporate Power around here, I will not let it happen.

You better careful Alia.......or I will show you personally the kind of Power I have on this show.

Follett turns and notices Fly. Alia storms off down the hallway. Follett grabs Fly and escorts him into his office. The door then closes again and the scene fades to ringside.


~"I Quit Match"~
(Looser Leaves the UWA)
Kurrgan vs Rilo


Rilo's Theme music hits and he struts out from behind the curtain. Followed behind Rilo is UWA President Alia. The two chat for a moment on the ramp and then make their way down to ringside.

Aparently our Federation President Alia, is gonna be in Rilo's corner tonite to ensure that nothing 'fishy' happens to her fellow Kovenant buddy during this match.

Smart move by Rilo, remember that Rilo could loose his job tonite!

Kurrgen then storms out from behind the curtain. He marches down the ramp and climbs into the ring. The referee grabs a microphone, Alia jumps out of the ring and the ref calls for the bell

-The Bell Sounds-

The referee carrying around that microphone, remember this is an "I Quit match". To win this match you must force your opponent to pretty much say those words into that mic.

Kurrgen and Rilo lock up. They exchange advantages untill Rilo kicks out the knee of Kurrgen. Rilo locks in a side headlock and tightens the grip. After a moment, Kurrgen levereges himself behind Rilo and pushes him into the corner. Rilo flys into the corner and then is met by a charging Kurrgen. Kurrgen hits Rilo with an elbow to the jaw. Kurrgen then pulls Rilo away from the corner and vertical suplexes him to the mat.

Kurrgen, a seven foot seven monster!

Kurrgen then waits for Rilo to rise. Rilo gets back up and is kicked in the stomach. Kurrgen then irish whips Rilo into the ropes. Rilo bounces back and ducks under a clothesline attempt. Rilo bounces off the opposite of the ring and on his way back, missle drop kicks Kurrgen. Kurrgen stumbles back and then gets hit with a diving cross body block. Rilo jumps back off of Kurrgen and Kurrgen gets back up. Rilo then locks back up with Kurrgen. Kurrgen snaps Rilo back and then wraps both arms around him. He then jacks Rilo off his feet and belly to belly suplexes him to the canvas. Kurrgen picks Rilo back up and then German Suplexes him to the canvas. Kurrgen then picks Rilo up for a third time and hooks him up again. Kurrgen then powerbombs Rilo to the canvas. Rilo's head bounces as he hits the mat.

Wow......Kurrgen just manhandled Rilo!

Kurrgen signals for the Referee to stick the mic in Rilo's face. Alia shouts at Rilo to get back up. The Ref puts the mic towards Rilo's face, but another voice is heard.........

Follett: Don't say a word.......get that microphone out of his face!

Mr. Follett is seen, standing at the top of the ramp.

What!

What the hell is Mr. Follett doing out here?

Kurrgen lets off of Rilo. The Ref, Alia, Kurrgen, and Rilo all direct thier attention toward Follett.

No, no, no.......that won't be necessary, actually this match isn't even necessary. You know, after watching the first five minutes of this match....I came to the realization that the looser leaves this federation and is no longer any good to this show. And truthfully, I see only one valuable superstar in that ring to this federation and this show. So instead of waiting for The Kovenant to screw with this match, and me being the big Kovenant fan that I am........I'm gonna showcase the power that have on this show right now. So Rilo, you don't have to say "I Quit" at all during this match........I don't care if your a UWA Hall of Famer because your fired!

Oh my god! He just fired Rilo!

Rilo's face turns pure white. Alia starts to charge up the ramp at Follett.

And as for you Alia, you can escort him out of here........because your ass is getting out of my building and off my show right now! Take them away boys.

Ten Security Guards charge out and down the ramp. A few of them grab Alia and force her back up the ramp. The others grab Rilo and start to walk him back up the ramp. Alia tries to fight her way through the Security Guards but can't. Follett laughs as they escort her to the backstage area.

I don't belive it.......he just fired Rilo and banned Alia off the show! This is great!

The cameras quickly cut backstage where Alia is still being escorted towards the building exit. Cosmos then comes into the scene.

Cosmos: What the hell is going on?

Alia: That son of a bitch just fired Rilo and kicked me out of this building!

Can he do that?

I don't know, I'm calling Mark right now.

Well......I don't know.........go to the Limo, call Mark and when I'm done with my match, I'll be out.

The Guards and Alia continue on as Cosmos stands with a pissed off look on his face.


The scene cuts back to a hallway in the backstage area where Jonny Fly and Mr. Follett stand outside of Follett's Office. The camera picks up on their conversation.

Fly: ..........well Mr. Follett, my trial isn't set for a few more days so I will do what I can tonite and hopefully leave the UWA with my head up.

Follett: No you listen Fly, the only reason your ass is even out of that Jail Cell is because I bailed you out. Your now a convict, who in a few days is gonna be a convicted felon. So one way or the other, your not leaving this Federation in good status. The only thing you have to worry about is teaming up with Edwards and beating the living hell out of Cosmos and Snow. We wouldn't be having this converstaion right now if I could a decent replacement for your ass tonite........but you are. So you will play by my rules tonite or I will send you back to that Cell with all the crack-heads and all the guys that like to trun nineteen year-olds into b*tches. Team with Edwards, take out The Kovenant.......... understand?

Yes Mr. Follett and thank you for getting me out of that hell hole.

Good, now get lost.

Follett steps back into his office and slams the door on Fly's face. Fly then heads down the hallway. The scene fades.......


~Standard Match~
Nicky Mills vs Joe Seward


The lights dim as the crowd’s voices come to a halt. A sense of uneasiness is felt throughout the arena, what is going on? Suddenly, huge green pyros go off in the shape of an X, as “Superfly” by Curtis Mayfield hits. The crowd erupts like a volcano when the one, the only, Smokin’ Joe Seward steps onto the ramp. He walks down the aisle to a huge pop, which does little to phase his grin. Seward hops into the ring, begins to stretch, all the while grinning at the huge crowd in Memphis for Stranglehold. Chants of Se-ward Se-ward Se-ward break out and Smokin’ Joe acknowledges them with a wave. The homecoming for Seward would have continued but....Born to Raise Hell by Motorhead blasts on the sound system, quieting the crowd. Nicky Mills comes out to a neutral reaction; boos and cheers. The usually happy man looks almost bitter, just wanting to get into the ring.

There is no love lost between these two UWA Superstars. Mills, a rookie, edged out Seward in a classic at Terror, and Seward has vowed not to let it happen again.

For once, I agree with you. This match is going to be a bloodbath. The crowd here in Memphis certainly will be getting their moneys worth.

Mills enters the ring, as the referee for this contest is checking Seward’s boots. Once finished, he goes over to Mills who reluctantly allows him to take a look. The ref tells Mills that he is clean, but all he is looking at is Seward playing to the crowd. Fed up. He charges hard at him, only to be met by the steel post.

Seward moved! That’s what I call ‘Aware of your surroundings’.

Smokin’ Joe takes advantage of Mills’ mistake, meeting his skull and chest with fists of fury. The ref signals for the match to start.

-The Bell Sounds-

Seward continues his onslaught of physical maneuvers, with sharp kicks to the thighs and lower legs. He picks up Mills and sends him to the ropes, only to have Nicky slither out and walk up the aisle, waving goodbye to Seward, as he continues walking up the ramp.

He has no intention of staying here and fighting! Mills is walking out of the match.

Not so fast, look at Seward!

Joe is seen running up the aisle after Nicky Mills, who is not aware of what is going on. The greeting is not friendly, as Seward bulldogs him into the cold hard concrete. Seward quickly realizes that the ref is at eight on the ten count, so he drags Mills into the ring. They entered just in time. Mills is now feeling better, and offers a test of strength. He puts his arm high into the air, and coaxes Seward into taking it. Bad move by Joe, who is hit with a swift kick to the ribs, changing the momentum. Feeling a weakness, Mills continues to work on Seward’s’ ribs. He picks him up, only to send him sprawling to the ground with a rib breaker. Smelling blood, he picks up Seward once more, and drops him hard on his ribs. Seward screams out in pain, as Mills sets up in the other corner. Two minutes pass before Seward gets up, still a bit dazed.

He may have eternal injuries! That… that animal!

Seward is now at his feet, but will not be there long. Mills charges hard, and connects with a spear! Mills goes for the cover.

This may be it! Seward may not be able to continue.........

Oh a Kickout!

Frustrated, Mills goes back to the corner, setting up for another spear. He runs, giving off an angry vibe, but is met by a drop toehold onto the bottom turnbuckle.

He is busted open! The blood is everywhere!

Seward is getting extremely energized by the crowd. He picks up Mills and loosens him up with punches to the stomach, then connects with a huge right hand to Mills’ face, sending him over the top rope. Seward poses to the crowd, brimming with confidence. On the outside, Mills is getting up, screaming four-letter words at himself. He pushes the announcer off of a steel chair, grabs it, and runs into the ring. Seward doesn’t see him, but the referee does. He screams at him, ordering that he puts it down. Mills pushes him away, knocking him out. He then races at Seward, who turns around, sensing danger. Mills takes a swing at him, but Seward super kicks the chair into his face!

Mills is out cold!

Seward covers Mills, but there is no ref around. Joe doesn’t know what he should do. He prayers are answered when, suddenly, a second referee from the back runs out, and makes the count....

THE BELL SOUNDS!

Smokin’ Joe Seward won! What a showing by both of these men.

Superfly by Curtis Mayfield hits. Seward avoids Mills’ unconscious body, and leaves the ring to a series of cheers.


The scene cuts backstage again. A bunch of EMT's and UWA Superstar's are gathered around a body. As the camera angle shifts and Jonny Fly is seen, laid out on the ground. Suddenly, Mr. Follett rushes over to the scene.

Follett: What the hell's going on? Oh my god, what the hell happend here!?!

Joe Seward: Somebody nailed him from behind, nobody saw it happen. He's out cold, that's for sure.

Jesus Christ, what the hell am I gonna do now?

Follett seems as if he is ready to pull his hair out. The EMT's load an unconciouss Fly onto a stretcher. As they rush him off to an Ambulence, the camera focuses on a slegehammer laying on the groud. The scene fades out..........


~Shadow's Return match~
Judas vs Shadow


"Suite-Pee" by System of a Down hits as Judas walks down the rampway and points at yell at the disapproving Judas signs. Judas gets to the ring and climbs the stairs as he enters the squared ring. The referee official pushes him to the corner so he doesn't get a quick shot at Shadow.

Well here we are! Shadow's debut match since he left UWA back in August. He's set to take on Judas of the Kovenant who has boiled some bad blood between the two in the past week.

Yeah well Shadow better watch out. If he messes with just one Kovenant member, most likely he has to go through them all.

Well let's see what's in store, here comes Shadow.

The lights in the arena shut out as the fans rise to their feet. The lights flas like storm effects as "Fuerer Frei" by Ramstein plays. An explosion of sparks go off by the rampway and a spotlight shines into the rafters and Shadow is lowered down by a cable.

He still comes to the ring like a weirdo.

Shadow reaches the ring and the lights go back on. The bell sounds and Shadow slowly removes his trench coat as Judas rushes him and flips him head over heels with a huge clothesline to the back of the head.

Judas just took Shadow's head off!

Judas follows up with huge stomps to the head of Shadow. Judas pulls Shadow to his feet and bashes his head sharply into the top turnbuckle.

But on the last hit, Shadow puts his foot on the second turnbuckle and stops the force. Judas realizes this and steps back to rush Shadow at the back, but Shadow back flips off the second turnbuckle and lands behind Judas.

Shadow's still showing he hasn't lost a step since he left...let's see if Judas can show us one.

Judas turns and is met by a spinning heel kick by Shadow. Judas lays flat on the ground and Shadow goes to pick him back up, but is met with a hard shot to the throat from Judas. Shadow staggers back and Judas delivers a kick to his mid section and lifts Shadow up into a suplex. But instead of dropping Shadow, Judas holds him in place above his head.

Well it seems Judas has the power in this match, as well as the size and weight.

Judas falls backwards, completing a huge stalling suplex. Judas crawls over and makes the cover.

Kickout at 2 for Shadow!

Judas pulls Shadow back up and whips him into the ropes, Shadow bounces back and is met by a roundhouse kick from Judas. Judas follows up by grabbing the legs of Shadow and locking in a boston crab. The ref checks Shadow to see if he gives, but Shadow shakes his head and crawls to the ropes. Shadow reaches, but is cut off as Judas drags him back to the center of the ring. Shadow then pushes off the mat with his hands and flips Judas onto his back using his legs.

Did Shadow just get out of that?

Judas quickly rolls over and is back to his feet quicker than Shadow and delivers reapeated forearm shots to the exposed back of Shadow. Shadow is beaten back to the mat as Judas bounces off the ropes and nails an elbow drop to the lower back of Shadow. Judas quickly covers.

Kickout by Shadow again!

Judas, now getting fed up with the slow counts, grabs Shadow and irish whips him into the turnbuckle. The force collides with the hurting back of Shadow and sends Shadow falling back to the ground.

Judas is using his moves to work that lower back of Shadow.

Judas pulls Shadow up and holds him in place and delivers hard knife edge chops to the chest cavity of Shadow. Judas then grabs Shadow and puts him between his legs as Judas stands on the second turnbuckle and signals to the crowd.

What's this?

Judas pulls Shadow up in a piledriver form, and leaps off the second rope and brings Shadow's head crashing into the mat.

Oh my God! I think Judas snapped Shadow's neck with that piledriver!

Do it Judas! End Shadow's career!

Shadow lays motionless on the mat as Judas wears a smile of satisfaction on his face. The ref checks on the motionless Shadow, but the greedy Judas shoves the ref off Shadow as he covers the limp body of Shadow and yells at the ref to count.

Oh c'mon, what is this? Judas wants the victory. He just ended a legend's career!

The ref slowly makes the count.

Shadow's got the rope!!

The arena erupts as Shadow's hand grasps the bottom rope in desperation. Judas' face fades back to anger as he gets up and stomps angrily at Shadow. Judas signals back to the crowd that it's over as he drags Shadow to the center of the ring and locks on a standing boston crab, applying pressure to the hurting back of Shadow, while shoving a knee into the back of his head.

This is it! He's going to tap!

Shadow wriggles around as the pain reaches his back as Judas keeps the pressure applied. The ref asks Shadow if he quits, but Shadow only responds by shaking his head. Shadow crawls to the ropes and reaches, but Judas drags him back to the center.

Tap Shadow tap!

He's not going to last much longer. Judas is going to break him in half!

Shadow tries a second, but this time rolls over and sends Judas on his stomach. Shadow quickly hops over Judas and locks on a crippler cross face.

The Shadow Grip! We haven't seen it in ages!

The referee quickly breaks the hold as Judas grabs the ropes. Judas gets back up and Shadow staggers to his feet, and Judas grabs Shadow in a headlock and DDT's him to the mat. Shadow's head bounces off the mat as Judas covers him.

That's it! It's over!

Judas quickly covers Shadow.

Shadow's got the ropes!

And yet again, Shadow's hand is holding the ropes. Judas gets off Shadow and throws his hands up in frustration. Judas turns back and throws Shadow out of the ring. Judas hops out of the ring and searches under the ring and brings out a bat and chair. But what Judas doesn't see is Shadow flipping back to his feet as he searches for weapons.

Ah!

Shadow's back!

Shadow stands behind Judas, watching him and waiting for him to turn. Judas turns with a chair held up and a dropkick from Shadow, smacks the chair against the skull of Judas as he falls backwards. Judas rolls back and staggers to his feet, and Shadow picks up the bat and delivers a shot to the mid section of Judas, and follows up with one to the back. But Judas still stands and Shadow cracks the bat acros the back of his knees and Judas collapses down to the ground. Shadow pulls Shadow up, and places the chair neatly on the ground. Shadow grabs Judas and nails a cradle DDT onto the chair.

Shadow's coming back....

Shadow rolls back into the ring to break the count. Shadow rolls back out and grabs Judas and completes an Impaler onto the denting chair. Judas rolls over with blood neatly flowing from his forehead.

He busted open Judas!

Shadow picks Judas up and rolls him back into the ring and Shadow hops up to the top rope. But instead of leaping onto the fallen Judas, Shadow waits for Judas to get up. Judas slowly rises to his feet, with blood dripping down his face as he staggers forward. Shadow walks out onto the thin rope as he walks out a few steps. He then turns to Judas and somersaults onto Judas' head and hurracarana's him across the ring.

A cat! He's a cat I tell you!

Well whatever he is, he's gaining momentum!

Shadow walks to the corner and waits for Judas to rise. Judas slowly gets up, and Shadow bursts out of the corner and connects with some sweet chin music.

Shadow Death Kick!!!!

Shadow covers Judas.

THE BELL SOUNDS!

The bell sounds and Shadow's hand is raised as "Fuerer Frei" plays.

Shadow wins! His first return match and he's back with a bang!

Not realizing he lost, Judas gets back up and goes to attack Shadow from behind, but Shadow ducks and kicks Judas in the throat. The music cuts as Shadow pulls Judas back up and DDT's him back to the ground, spreading the blood over the mat. Seeing that their member is in trouble, The Kovenant rushes to the ring, Reverend Snow, Cosmos, Mikey Hell, and the Blob storm the ring. But when they hit the ropes, the lights go out, and when they come on. All that's in the ring is their semi-conscious comrade. The Kovenant drag Judas off and exit to the back.

Well Shadow's back and has shown he's still the possum playing wrestler he was when he left.

Yeah, but I think he's made some enemies.

You see that, that's now two members of The Kovenant that have been severly punished tonite! This is great, Judas just got the crap kicked out of him and Rilo is standing in the Un-Employment line!


Backstage, UWA Correspondant Jamie Welsh is seen standing next to Michael Edwards. Edwards stands in his wrestling gear and ready to shoot the interview.

Welsh: Ladies and gentlemen, standing next to me right now is the man who will later fight in a "Tag Team Turmoil Match" against the World Champion Reverand Snow and U.S. Champion Cosmos. As you just saw Michael, Jonny Fly was attacked by somebody and rushed off to the local Hospital. Again you have no partner for tonite's Main Event..............

Edwards cuts Jamie off.

Edwards: You know what Jamie, I don't have a partner for tonite and I don't care! Follett bails Fly out of Jail and schedules him to fight one last match at my side. Fly gets laid out and that plan is scratched. All I know is that partner or no partner, Michael Edwards is gonna get into that ring and kick a World Champion and a U.S. Champion's ass! I don't need a jailbird fighting with me to take on Cosmos and Reverand Snow. I have stepped into that ring enough times in 'two on one' situations and ever time I do, I defy the odds. This isn't the first time I have faced the likes of Snow or the likes of Cosmos, and I know both of them like the back of my hand. So whether it's Tag team or handicap, you can all be sure of one thing................ Michael Edwards will be in that ring tonite!

Edwards storms off the scene.



~DOUBLE~

~Television Title Match~

Criss Angel vs Dark Hart (c)


"Bang" by DMX blasts over the arena PA and to everyone's suprise, new UWA star Johnny Justice struts out. The crowd goes wild as Justice shows off and he makes his way down the ramp.

Hey thats, thats Johnny Justice.....the newest member of the UWA!

What's he doing out here?

Justice makes his way to ringside and heads over to the Announcer's tables.

It appears Justice is gonna join us here.
