MMA Rules Cage Fight
Jake Hager (with Chris Jericho) vs. Wardlow (with Shawn Spears)
Tony Schiavone makes clear that each competitor was allowed one man in their corner for their fight so Hager chose Jericho and Wardlow picked Shawn Spears. We have a full octagon set up. Justin Roberts make the official introductions and Wardlow disrespectfully has his back turned to Hager. Full MMA vibe going on here, complete with camera angles.
Bell rings and Wardlow evades a speedy set of punches by Hager. Hager goes for an amateur wrestling takedown, but Mr. Mayhem remains vertical. Hager jabs Wardlow and walks off. We tick down to the halfway point as Hager goes for a thigh kick, corners Wardlow, but the big man tosses him off. Double leg takedown by Hager. Another one. He goes for the ground and pound, but Wardlow pushs him back with his legs. Big right hand by Wardlow followed by a takedown but he can’t get the mount for a ground and pound.
Haymakers are being thrown . Hager looks wobbly, Wardlow hits a Superman punch off the cage and Wardlow stays on top of him. Wardlow is looking to end Hager against the cage as the clock ticks down to end round one.
END ROUND ONE
