The United Kingdom Wrestling Alliance - What Happened Next?

So what happened next then?

If you read the blurb that led you into this little story, you’ll know that, sadly, the write-up for the pay-per-view, The New Age, held at Carrow Road, the home of Norwich City Football Club, was sadly lost. But I can tell you what happened.
Firstly, British favourite Davey Boy Smith went on to defeat Lord Steven Regal to become UKWA British Champion, while The Sandman won the UKWA Hardcore title.

The Dark Angels team of Vampiro and Gangrel caused something of an upset by defeating The Dudley Boys, The Outsiders and The New Age Outlaws to become the UKWA Tag-Team Champions.

During the UKWA World Championship tournament, the interference of Two Sheds’ masked corporate enforcer saw Triple H eliminated in the first round. This saw the two of them engage in a running battle that took place throughout various parts of the stadium. It lasted for the remainder of the show, until they finally returned to the ring, and Triple H managed to unmask his opponent, revealing him to be none other than Shawn Michaels.

The tournament final was contested by Hulk Hogan and Chris Benoit in an evenly fought contest. Benoit put Hogan in the cross-face, and when he thought Hogan had tapped out, he released the hold. Hogan went on to stage a comeback, eventually taking Benoit out with the big boot and the big leg drop. However, the referee counted very slowly, and Benoit kicked out of Hogan’s pin at two. Moments later Benoit applied the sharpshooter to Hogan, and Two Sheds, who was seated at ringside, immediately called for the bell, awarding the UKWA World title to Benoit. As Ric Flair and Randy Savage joined Hogan at ringside, Two Sheds revealed that his alliance with the legends had been a ruse, and that Benoit would be the figurehead of his new Corporation.

So there you have it. Once again the famed Montreal Screw Job was played out again, but this time in Norwich. Hey, don’t have a go at me! After all, Vince McMahon has used this ending God knows how many times in the past twelve years!
