The ref is giving Spiritwolf the manditory 5 minutes. Spiritwolf looks like he’s in agony, didn’t seem like a hard knee but I supposed a shot to the pills is a shot to the pills none the less. The crowd is beginning to chant “bullshit!, bullshit!”. Didn’t realize Maine had WWE fans. After the five minutes expired, the ref calls off the fight. Not the first time a fight with Spiritwolf ends under strange circumstances. Commercial break and Wheelock states we’ll find out what the final verdict will be.
