1.) Killer Kyle defeated Ted Allen
2.) Reno Riggins defeated Rip Rogers
3.) Len Fields defeated Kevin Sullivan by disqualification
4.) SMW Bat The Champ TV Champion The Nightstalker defeated Larry Santo to retain the title
5.) Bobby Eaton fought Ricky Morton to a double disqualification
1.) Bob Caudle conducts an interview with Bob Armstrong. Armstrong is looking for a way to get out of having to pay for Kevin Sullivan’s therapy sessions which are making them lose a lot of money. Armstrong announces that on April 2nd SMW will be holding Bluegrass Brawl in Pikeville, Kentucky. That would be the next major event for the company.
2.) We see more footage of Kevin Sullivan and his therapy. Sullivan is laying on a couch as the therapist tells him he is very happy to have long sessions that will cost a lot of money. The therapist has Sullivan look at ink on paper. Sullivan thinks the images are of various fan favorites begging for help and in various phases of pain. Sullivan is getting a cranium massage from a mysterious woman. Sullivan thanks Smoky Mountain Wrestling for paying for the sessions.
3.) Sullivan gets disqualified for destroying the poor jobber. Nightstalker puts a cloth over Sullivan’s eyes to calm him down and they go to the commentary table for an interview. Bob Caudle conducts the interview. Sullivan wants to talk about happier times. On March 21st, Sullivan will be wrestling Brian Lee in a Russian revolver match. It could be any kind of match but Kevin isn’t going to tell Lee the rules or what match it could be. Kevin again thinks that Nightstalker is getting really aggressive and near the edge. Nightstalker isn’t happy that Tim Horner got involved in his business. Nightstalker assures Horner that blood will be poured and he needs to be fed.
4.) Down & Dirty returns this week with SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy as the special guest. But first, we get pre-recorded thoughts from Smothers at his home. Smothers talks about White Boy costing him $5,000 last week. Tracy thinks there is a lot of good and bad in everything. He knows the Confederate flag provides bad memories but not for him. The flag reminds him where he came from and prides himself on that. Tracy wouldn’t be anywhere else than in the South and the White Boy tried to take that away from him. Smothers is going to do something about White Boy burning his flag.
Ron Wright and SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy are with Dutch Mantel. Wright is disgusted that the fans are cheering for Tracy Smothers. Bob Armstrong comes over and tells them that next week Tracy Smothers is getting a title match on television! White Boy says he isn’t going to lose the belt next week.
5.) Bob Caudle conducted an interview with Brian Lee and Tim Horner. Horner reminds us he is just being Lee’s friend to keep the issues even with Sullivan and Nightstalker. Horner would like a shot at the $1,000 as well. Lee doesn’t care about what match he will have with Sullivan and says he is going to knock his head off his shoulders.
6.) Rock N’ Roll Express are out for an interview. Ricky Morton has a problem with wrestling 3 vs. 2. He is also annoyed with Jim Cornette for pulling his tricks to prevent them from winning the SMW Tag Team Championships. Morton has a mystery partner who hates Cornette just as much as they do. Their mystery partner will be arriving in Knoxville. Morton thinks they could beat any of the Heavenly Bodies in a singles match. Morton declines to reveal the mystery partner.
7.) Jim Cornette, Bobby Eaton and the SMW Tag Team Champions The Heavenly Bodies are out for an interview. Cornette talks about the mystery partner and thinks that they won’t be able to find anyone to fight them. Jim says the only mystery will be how many pieces they will be left in. Morton and Gibson come over to confront the foursome. Morton wants to prove it right now that they could beat one of them in a singles match. Bobby Eaton is picked to take on Ricky Morton right now.
8.) Morton hammers away on Eaton to start the match. Eaton gets control following a right hand and chokes Eaton in the corner. Morton ducks a right hand and nearly wins with a rollup. Morton keeps Bobby on the canvas with a headlock. Eaton works over Morton with a few kicks to the knee and Eaton chop blocks Morton’s knee. Bobby focuses his offense on the injured knee of Ricky. Bobby locks in a figure four right in the middle of the ring but Morton isn’t giving up despite Eaton getting extra leverage from Cornette. They begin to trade right hands but Eaton drops Ricky face first across the top turnbuckle. Eaton continues to wrench on the injured leg of Morton as the fans are behind Morton big time. Eaton hits a swinging neck breaker but only gets a two count on the cover attempt. Morton fights back with right hands and sends Eaton to the floor. Eaton knocks Morton down from the apron but gets stopped on the top as Morton hits a press slam sending Eaton to the canvas. Ricky hits a top rope cross body for a near fall. The Stud Stable hits the ring to attack Eaton and Morton. Robert Gibson runs into the ring and helps out attacking the Stud Stable. Eaton hits Robert Fuller with a tennis racket as Stan Lane and Tom Pritchard enter. Killer Kyle slides into the ring to get involved. Several other wrestlers come into the ring but they are sent to the floor. The show ends with the face standing tall in the ring, except for Morton who is on the canvas. (*1/2. Nothing awful for the match as it continues the three team feud that has been brewing for several weeks now.)
An average episode this week as it mainly hyped up a couple of feuds. The Smothers/White Boy match next week is one I’m REALLY looking forward to as the feud has been built up extremely well as Dirty White Boy has been doing an incredible job in his heel role since winning the title in August.
