1.) Scott & Steve Armstrong defeated Paul Lee & Jeff Daniels
2.) Chris Comet & Larry Santo defeated The Bruise Brothers by disqualification
3.) SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Brian Lee defeated Robbie Eagle to retain the title
4.) Tracy Smothers defeated Abdul Hassan in a $20,000 bounty match
1.) Bob Armstrong sent in another video saying that Jim Cornette will be replacing a deer on his wall. Bob will be at ringside on July 4th weekend because he will be able to confront Cornette. Bob isn’t ready to compete yet, but will be in action in a few more weeks.
2.) Scott and Steve Armstrong are interviewed about Jim Cornette. Scott says it is just a matter of two more weeks for Cornette to be free from Bob Armstrong. Scott insults Cornette’s mother and calls Cornette fat.
3.) The Heavenly Bodies and Jim Cornette are interviewed. Jimmy Del Ray has shaved off his facial hair for some reason. They are quite happy with themselves for their victory over the Armstrong Brothers las week. Pritchard insults the fans and the Armstrong’s. Tom says that he and Jimmy are the perfect tag team. Cornette chimes in and hypes up the Bruise Brothers as being a dominating force in pro wrestling. Jim says that the Armstrong Brothers are in for the fight of their life. Cornette warns Bob Armstrong that he is coming back a little too soon and he can be hurt again, but even worse a second time.
4.) The Bruise Brothers destroy their opponents but end up losing the match by disqualification because they decided to use steel chairs.
5.) Ron Wright and Abdul Hassan are interviewed. Wright is confident that Hassan, whom he brought in from Iraq will take out Tracy Smothers tonight and collect the bounty.
6.) Down & Dirty this week has WWA World Champion Chris Candido as his special guest. Candido is trying to convince everyone that he is a World Champion. Candido might make a class action lawsuit and thinks he is being discriminated against because he is from New Jersey. Candido compares himself to Ric Flair and Buddy Rogers, but is better than them. Candido is in a King of Kentucky tournament but Candido doesn’t care about Kentucky. He is confident that he will win the tournament.
7.) SMW Tag Team Champions Rock N’ Roll Express are interviewed about the Bruise Brothers. Morton reminds us that they are four time SMW tag champs in just over a year span. Morton says the next time they meet the Bruise Brothers in the ring it will be face to face. Ricky says the only reason they are here is because Jim Cornette is paying them a hefty amount.
8.) Tim Horner shared pre-tape comments about challenging Tracy Smothers for the SMW Heavyweight Championship and says it will be a clean match despite everyone trying to create a wedge between them.
9.) Before the main event, Tammy Fytch entered the ring and attempted to recruit Tracy Smothers to allow her to manage him. Tammy says she gets what Tennessee boys are all about their hunting and fishing. Smothers tells Tammy she looks like she fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch, so he nicely rejected her.
10.) Hassan attacks Smothers on the floor and chokes Smothers with his jacket. Hassan doesn’t really look like a guy from Iraq, but rather from America just playing the role. Smothers works over Hassan with a scoop slam and dropkick for a near fall. Smothers atomic drops Hassan and follows up with a clothesline for a two count. Hassan takes Smothers down with a back suplex to gain control of the bout. Hassan hits an odd looking power bomb but can’t keep Smothers down long enough on the cover attempt. Smothers nearly wins following a springboard cross body but Hassan quickly comes back with a clothesline. Smothers drops Hassan with a forearm smash but misses a splash as Hassan got his knees up.
Smothers takes Hassan down with an inside cradle but only gets a two count. Smothers counters a power bomb with a backdrop and kicks Hassan. Tracy hits a leaping side elbow as Ron Wright gives Hassan powder, who hits the referee on accident. Smothers power slams Hassan but here comes the Dirty White Boy, who misses a top rope diving head butt hitting Hassan on accident. Smothers pins Hassan. After the match, Smothers fights both men off until DWB plants Tracy with a DDT. White Boy continues to stomp on Smothers until Tim Horner runs into the ring to make the save. Horner and Smothers back into each other and nearly come to blows, again. However, cooler heads prevail. (*1/4. Um, the Hassan thing is just stupid. The DWB/Smothers issue needs to end already. It was a hot angle, but it has over stayed its welcome as the main program.)
11.) SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Brian Lee is interviewed to end the show. Brian Lee retires undefeated as the champion and wins a $5,000 bonus. Before Lee can talk, Tracy Smothers comes over and tells Dirty White Boy to shove his bounty where the sun doesn’t shine. Brian Lee doesn’t look to be all that happy about Smothers stepping in on his interview. Smothers continues to cut a promo on White Boy while Lee stands off to the side waiting. Smothers apologizes to Lee and leaves saying he had to get that off his chest. Brian doesn’t seem to care much that Smothers fought off the bounty as the show comes to an end.
A rather forgettable week of television as there wasn’t much of anything going on here. The early seeds of a Brian Lee heel turn are being planted at the end of the show. It seemed kind of odd that they completely downplayed Smothers winning the vacant SMW Heavyweight Championship. This felt like a filler week worth of television, for the most part.
