Flashback Show IV (pre- Ides of March '98) pt. 5

Post by Jay Stee » Fri, 13 Mar 1998 04:00:00

Josh Taylor- Our next match took place in Madison Square Garden, the day after
Christmas in 1996. It was our inaugural Holiday Horror Pay Per View. The fact
that it was an 8 man elimination match wasn't what made this match intriguing.

At the Ides of March '98, "Bruiser" Bob Todd takes on "Dangerous" Doug Milne
in a taped***match. But back on December 26, 1996, they were teammates.

At the Ides of March '98, two men who fought each other almost to the death in
the TV title tournament, Eric Smart and the Mercenary are on opposite sides of
the 10 man elimination match. But back on December 26, 1996, they too were on
the same team.

At the Ides of March '98, Robski will make his return to UEW Pay Per View. But
back on December 26, 1996, nobody knew that it would be the last one he would
appear on for quite a long time.

Todd and Milne....Smart and Mercenary......Robski in New York?!?! Elimination
matches on UEW Pay Per Views make such strange bedfellows. :)

Robski, Bob Todd, and Doug Milne...three of the men participating in next
week's Ides of March- England card, team up with 35-time e-wrestling champion
"Spartan" Troy Walters to take on the team comprised of the "ICON" Eric Smart,
the Mercenary, former UEW Television champion the Executioner, and Jack Smits.

Considering all that has happened between these men in 1998, let's take a look
at what transpired when all these men teammed up back in December of 1996.

UEW FLASHBACK- December 26, 1996- Holiday Horror 1

        Carter: Ladies and Gentleman, The waiting is over, New York is
ready, the UEW is ready and we're ready! Let's go to the ring!!!

        Smith: 'bout time!

        ("Don't look back in Anger" begins to play over the speaker as the
curtain opens and the croud begins to cheer)

        Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING IS THE OPENING
MATCH OF HOLIDAY HORROR!! IT IS AN ELIMINATION MATCH WHERE THE MATCH
CONTINUES UNTIL ONE TEAM IS COMPLETELY ILLIMINATED!! THE FIRST TEAM, TO BE
LED DOWN THE RING BY JASMINE, HERE ARE RRRRROOOOBBBBSSSKKKIIIII!!!!!! "THE
SPPPAAARRTTANNNN, TRRROYYY WAAAALLLLTEEERRRRSSSSS!!!! COMING DOWN THE
AISLE, "THE BRUUIZZERRR" BOOOOBBBB TOOODDDDDDDD!!!! AND ROUNDING OUT THE
TEAM, DOOUUGGGG MIILLLNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

        Smith: That's a pretty formidable foursome entering that ring, old
man.

        Carter: This IS a strong team led by the former TV champion,
Robski, but they have some formidable opponents as well.

        Smith: And you would know with all the wrestling you've been a
witness to these last few hundred years!

        Carter: Are you starting already?

        Smith: You betcha.

        (Robski's music lowers and then ends as the Executioner's music
begins to play)

        Announcer: AND THEIR OPPONENTS!!!! COMING DOWN THE AISLE, HERE IS
THE EXECUUUUTIONNNEERRRRR!!!! LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, ERRRIIICCCC SMARRTTTT,
COMING DOWN THE AISLE, HERE IS THE MEEERRRRRCCEEENNNARRRYYYYY!! AND, THE
"DARK ENFORCER" JAACCKKKK SMMMITTTSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

        Carter: The Executioner's team enters the ring, and look at this,
Rock, the Executioner gets right into Robski's face and the ref separates
them.

        Smith: I guess Executioner is going for the early halitosis
advantage. I've been in the same room with him, too. YUUCCHHH!!!!

        Carter: Fans, as we wait for the referee gain order, I have a
quick announcement to make directly from the president's office.

        Smith: What? How did YOU get this information? I'm the main man of
our broadcasting team, what's Greg doing?

        Carter: I guess Greg thought otherwise.

        Smith: I didn't know Greg ever thought. I'm going to go down there
and talk to him, after all, I have seniority.

        Carter: I've been in this business a long time, son.

        Smith: Of course you do, what are you, a hundred?

        Carter: Ahem, if I MAY!!!

        Smith: Go ahead, you have my permission. Just remember who's in
charge around here.

        Carter: Hmph. Fans, as we see Robski talk to his team and step
between the ropes, as you know, in the past, Robski has complained in the
past about never getting his re-match for the TV title since losing it to
Danny Ice. However, that will no longer be the case. Next week, on the
Sunday Anarchy show, Robski will face the winner of tonight's Triangle
Street Fight and this will be a match for the TV CHAMPIONSHIP!!

        Smith: Does Robski know this?

        Carter: I would assume so.

        Smith: Well, that has to give him some incentive for this match
tonight.

        Carter: Okay, the ref has signalled for the bell, it looks like
it'll be Bob Todd starting with Eric Smart, a main event anywhere in the
country.

        Smith: Where? What part of the country?

        Carter: We have a lock up in the ring. Both men jockeying for
position....Smart with an arm drag. Todd back on his feet. Both men lock
up again, Todd with a headlock. Smart pulls him into his corner and tags
in the Executioner! Todd lets go of the headlock and runs to the center of
the ring.

        Smith: Todd better tag out. Ahh, he must've heard me, he did tag
out and Troy Walters is in the ring. The man who pinned Rick Styles in
that recent tag match.

        Carter: Well, Bob Todd and Walters proved to be a better tag
team then anyone expected them to. The NA didn't look prepared for
that match at all. Understandably with such highstakes for all on the
line tonight. Now, let's see what the Spartan can do. Walters bounces off
the ropes...and bounces right off off the Executioner.

        Smith: What can he do? Nothing as usual.

        Carter: Walters tries it again, Executioner goes for a
clothesline, Walters ducks the arm, goes off the ropes and MAKES THE TAG
TO ROBSKI!!

        Smith: It looks like we're going to start right off with this!!
uhm, nope, Executioner just tagged in The Mercenary.

        Carter: The Mercenary is in the ring as both men are about to lock
up. NO, Mercenary with a kick to the stomach. Mercenary goes off the
ropes, BUT ROBSKI CATCHES HIM WITH A BELLY TO BELLY!! The cover...

A kick out!! Mercenary makes a tag to Eric Smart.

        Smith: I gotta say, the Executioner's team have been making some
pretty fast tags tonight.

        Carter: Smart whips Robski into the ropes and catches him with a
sleeper....Robski runs backwards into the turnbuckle. Robski takes two
steps forward, but Eric Smart to the second rope AND A DROPKICK FROM THE
SECOND ROPE!!! A COVER...

No, Robski powers out.

        Smith: Robski's in trouble early, he better make a tag. AHH, there
we go, Robski to the eyes and makes a tag.

        Carter: Doug Milne is in as Robski shows that he's no saint.

        Smith: A Saint bernard, maybe.

        Carter: Milne enters the ring, but Smart goes behind and runs
Milne into the ropes, and The Mercenary catches Milne with a clothesline
from the outside of the ring. And, now the Mercenary tags in.

        Smith: And, did you notice, Smart didn't care for that move by the
Mercenary. Panzy.

        Carter: I'm sure there is still some bad *** between The
Mercenary and Eric Smart after the greuling match these two fought at our
last PPV. The Mercenary shoves Milne into the corner and begins to clubber
him with european uppercuts. I can hear fans in the audience shouting
"Boring". The New York croud is not afraid to express their opinion, huh,
Rock?

        Smith: These neanderthals would chant "Boring" at a public
***.

        Carter: Mercenary whips Milne into the other corner, but Milne
jumps onto the second rope, Milne leaps off and a HIGHCROSS BODY
PRESS...THE MERCENARY CAUGHT HIM!!!!

        Smith: Big strength move, but he having trouble holding him, he
falls back, but gets his balance back...

        Carter: But it looked like Milne managed to tag in Bob Todd, in
fact, he did tag in Bob Todd! The Mercenary carries Milne into the center
of the ring AND A BIG POWERSLAM!!

        Smith: He still dosen't realize there was a tag, he's going for
the pin. The ref is telling him now, The Mercenary is asking him why he's
not counting.

        Carter: As the Mercenary gets to his feet, the ref is pointing to
Bob Todd who's on the top rope in his team's corner. Mercenary turns
around...TODD WITH A HIGHCROSS BODY PRESS FROM THE TOP ROPE...NAILED!!!
THE PIN.....

3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE MERCENARY HAS BEEN
ILLIMINATED!!!!!

        Carter: The Executioner's team will now be without the services of
The Mercenary and the Executioner looks upset as he slams his arms on the
ropes.

        Smith: Well, no one ever accused the Mercenary of being the
brightest wrestler in the league.

        Carter: As the Mercenary rolls out of the ring, Todd gets up and
Jack Smits steps into the ring for the first time in this match. Both men
lock up and Smits takes the advantage with a kick to the ribs. Todd with
enough presence of mind to tag out to Doug Milne. Smits backs off.

        Smith: Smits better do somethig, his team is down a man.

        Carter: Milne locks up with Smits, both men are trying to force
the other man into the ropes...Smits goes for the headlock instead. Smits
has it on tight.

        Smith: That armpit of his has caused more then one man to submit.

        Carter: Milne backs off to the ropes, and manages to escape by
throwing his opponent into the ropes. Smits rebounds with a clothesline,
but Milne ducks. Both men rebound off the ropes.. THE EXECUTIONER CATCHES
MILNE IN THE BACK WITH A KNEE!!!

        Smith: Good heads up wrestling by the Executioner.

        Carter: Smits with a small package.

TYING THIS MATCH AT 3 A PIECE!!!!

        Carter: Troy Walters enters the ring and picks Smits up by the
head.

        Smith: Did you hear Robski scream "come on" at his team? It must
be a real load for him to have to work with these commoners.

        Carter: Walters sets up Smits with a gut wrench suplex...executed
perfectly. The cover, the count...

        Smith: If he dosen't tag out now...

        Carter: HE MADE THE TAG!!!! Eric Smart is in the ring! Smart with
a whip in to the ropes, CATCHES WALTERS WITH A POWERSLAM!!! Smart runs to
the corner and catches Robski with a right hand!! He nails Todd! Now, he
runs towards Walters Who leapfrogs over him! Smart rebounds, Walters from
behind, runs Smart into the ropes....BELLY TO BACK GERMAN SUPLEX INTO A

3!!!!!!!!!!!!! What happened there?? Smart got his shoulder up!

        Smith: True, but I think Walters had HIS shoulders down.

        Carter: You may be right, Rock, the ref is signalling the
announcer, he's about to give the official word. Right now, both men are
standing in the ring looking confused.

        Smith: For those two, that's not a new thing.

        Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, TROY WALTERS HAS BEEN
ILLIMINATED!!!!

        Carter: You were right, Rock, Walters practically pinned himself.

        Smith: Of course I'm right, It's me. Hey, and look at the tantrum
Walters is throwing. I told you he's a crybaby AND HERE COMES ROBSKI INTO
THE RING!!!

        Carter: As Smart was distracted by Walters' "tirade", Robski took
advantage by catching Smart with a clothesline from the behind. Now, he
picks up Smart and nails him with a snapmare.

        Smith: Well, Robski needs to get something done, now HE's down a
man.

        Carter: Robski places Smart into the corner and hits him with an
elbow to the ribs. Now a reverse knife edge. Tag to Bob Todd.

        Smith: Todd's setting him up for a bulldog. This could be a
mistake, they're better off keeping him in the corner.

        Carter: Todd runs him into the center of the ring for a bulldog
BUT SMART THROWS HIM OFF!!!

        Smith: "Smart" move by Smart.

        Carter: Oh, you're just so funny tonight. Todd is slowly pulling
himself to his feet. He jumps off the ropes, it looks like he's going for
a Theis Press!! He leaps in the air, AND SMART CATCHES HIM INTO A
POWERBOMB!!!!! Smart pulls himself to the corner and tags in the
Executioner.

        Smith: And the Executioner is climbing to the top rope!! He's
going to come in the hard way!!

        Carter: I don't know if Todd is empty enough for him to try this
move...Executioner leaps off the top rope with an elbow drop...AND NAILS
IT!!!!!!! Executioner with the cover...

3!!!!!!!!!!!!! And things do not look good for Robski!!!

        Smith: That depends on who's perspective you're looking at this
from.

        Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, BOB TODD HAS BEEN ILLIMINATED!!!!

        Carter: Robski steps into the ring.

        Smith: Robski should leave. He dosen't need this.

        Carter: Robski is NOT a coward.

        Smith: Sure he is.

        Carter: Robski begins to exchange punches with the Executioner and
the Executioner seems to be winning the meelae. Robski drops to a knee and
hits The Executioner with a low elbow. Executioner tags out to Smart.

        Smith: And that's the advantage the 3 men have, they can tag out
when they get in trouble and Robski can't.

        Carter: Obviously. Smart enters the ring and IMMEDIATELY CATCHES
ROBSKI WITH A DROPKICK!! Smart with another dropkick, Robski backpedals
into the ropes. They were the only things that kept him on his feet.

        Smith: Don't get coy with ME, old man or we're going to have an
unscheduled match here at Holiday Horror.Hey, Smart's going off those
ropes, he's coming in with a clothesline...

        Carter: ROBSKI BACK-BODY-DROPS SMART OVER THE TOP ROPE...BUT SMART
LANDED ON THE CANVAS!!! Robski takes two steps forward...Smart's waiting
for him. Robski turns around!    Smart jumps onto the top rope and leaps
off on top of Robski...ROBSKI TURNS IT INTO A POWERSLAM!!!!!!!!!

        Smith: That move knocked the wind out of Smart!!

        Carter: The cover and the count

        Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, ERIC SMART HAS BEEN
ILLIMINATED!!!!!!!!!

        Carter: And now, the Executioner runs into the ring begins to put
the boots to Robski.

        Smith: Now, the Executioner's dropping double ax handles across
his back. He's doing the right thing keeping Robski from getting to his
feet.

        Carter: Robski makes his way to the ropes and the Executioner
begins to ***him on them. The referee counts to 4 and Executioner
breaks.

        Smith: That's the closest thing you'll see to a clean break
from the Executioner, that's for sure.

        Carter: Executioner sets Robski up for a vertical suplex....Robski
blocks it and hits a suplex of his own. Wow, Robski's up to his feet
first. He backs Executioner into the corner.

        Smith: And Robski's keeping it at his own pace, slow and
methodical.

        Carter: Robski with a reverse knife edge. From the corner he whips
his opponent into the opposite corner...Executioner reverses it!! Robski
hits the corner! Here comes the Executioner with a clothesline...

        Smith: AND ROBSKI MOVED!!!

        Carter: Executioner hits the turnbuckles HARD!! He bounces off
AND ROBSKI WITH A RECVERSE NECK BREAKER!!!!

        Smith: What a "Rude Awakening", he caught the Executioner out of
nowhere with that!!!

        Carter: Robski hooks a leg.

Smits stumbles forwards and Robski sets him up for his powerbomb!!

        Smith: Let me take this one! Robski lifts Smits up for the

        ("Don't look back in Anger" begins to play over the speaker)

        ANNOUNCER: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH AND THE SOUL SURVIVOR...
RRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBSSSSSSSSSKKKKKKKIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!

        Carter: Jasmine enters the ring and gives a big hug to former TV
champion. He owes her for the final pinfall but you still can't take away
from Robski's performance. He was down 3 men to 1 and came back to win.
What endurance.

        Smith: And what momentum it gives him going into his TV title
match coming up in the next few weeks.

<<<

Robski showed in that match exactly why he is a UEW legend. Surprisingly, Doug
Milne and Bob Todd got along quite well in that matchup...but then again, this
was almost two years before Doug Milne attacked Todd's manager leaving her
blind. I wouldn't expect these two to be very chummy come their taped***
match at the Ides of March- England in less than a week. The Mercenary and
Eric Smart did not get along too well, but then again....hell will freeze
before those two get along, which will be evident during the 10 man
elimination match coming up at the Ides of March- Italy. The Mercenary will be
joined by "Ladykiller" Chris Tyler, the Angel of Death, Iron Spike, and
Nevermind....while on the other side of the ring, Smart will team with "The
Bad Dog" Scott Haggarty, Dr. Seth Killjoy, Wildstar, and the Sonic Kid. Who
knows what's going to happen when those 10 men are placed in the same ring.

We have to go to another break, but when we come back we will discuss the
participants in the main event of the Ides of March- Italy.
