1.)Tim Horner defeated Buddy Landell
1.) The majority of this episode is going to be highlighting the Volunteer Slam event that took place on May 22nd. That event has been covered here already, though.
2.) Horner wastes no time going after Landell in the corner with right hands and stomps. Horner hip tosses Buddy out of the corner and delivers a scoop slam. Tim works over Buddy in the corner but runs into a back elbow. Landell works over Horner with a series of chops and a short arm clothesline. Buddy uses the ropes for leverage while having a front face lock on Horner. The referee notices the illegal hold and forces a break. Horner fights back with right hands and rolls Landell up with a bridge to get the win and $5,000. After the match, Buddy attacks Horner and sends Tim head first into the ring post. Landell whacks Horner over the back with a steel chair and Horner has been busted wide open. Buddy drops a couple of elbows and rips up the check before shoving it down Horner’s throat. Brian Lee and Dixie Dynamite run down to the ring to chase Buddy from the ring. (*. It seemed like the match was designed to be an advancement of their feud. They worked together quite a bit on the house show market so this likely gave fans a reason to see these two compete at live events. Buddy is doing a great job as a heel here and should be a main event guy eventually.)
Next week SMW will be airing shows that were taped after Volunteer Slam as the last couple of weeks were taped prior to the big event. So, there will be more to cover.
