1.) SMW US Junior Heavyweight Champion Chris Candido defeated Louie Spicolli to retain the title
2.) Rock N’ Roll Express defeated Jason West & Jason Herd
3.) Dirty White Boy defeated Killer Kyle by disqualification
1.) Louie Spicolli cuts a promo saying he came from California for a title shot against Chris Candido and he isn’t leaving without the title.
2.) Spicolli hip tosses Candido to start the match and follows up with an arm drag and a standing hurricanrana sending Candido to the floor. Candido eye rakes Louie to stop him but is nearly pinned by Louie with an inside cradle. Spicolli dropkicks Candido and heads to the top rope but gets distracted by Tammy. Candido stops Louie and hits a hurricanrana! Candido hits a snap suplex for a near fall. Candido yanks Spicolli down by his hair to keep control of the bout with a sleeper hold. Spicolli gets a rollup but Candido drops Louie with a clothesline. Candido gets a near fall after coming off the middle rope. Louie gets out and fights back with punches and a super kick to the chest. Louie backdrops Candido and hits a spinning heel kick. Louie monkey flips Candido out of the corner and attempts another but Tammy held Candido in the corner. Candido takes advantage and pins Louie for the victory. (*1/2. Well, that was a disappointing match of what could have been so much better if it wasn’t used just to get Candido a win.)
3.) Dennis Correzlo is in New Jersey to show that Tracy Smothers is really from Pennsylvania. The acting for this is awful. Dennis flips out on the $50 charge that the undercover guy is charging. Dennis even asks a random guy for money but doesn’t get it.
4.) Jim Cornette is interviewed regarding Sunday Bloody Sunday. He is looking forward to the Texas Death Match at the event between Terry Funk and Bullet. Cornette doesn’t believe that Funk will lose the match at Sunday Bloody Sunday. Cornette has waited for this moment for a long time for the career of Bob Armstrong to come to an end. Cornette is going to make sure that the last act of Bob Armstrong will be kissing Cornette’s feet.
5.) Down & Dirty this week is with Jim Cornette and the SMW Tag Team Champions the Heavenly Bodies. Cornette promotes their match with Mike and Doug Furnas. If they lose they will have to wear an Alabama sweatshirt in Knoxville. Cornette thinks the Express have gone insane and are trying to kill him for no reason. If the Express put their hands on Cornette then Morton and Gibson will be suspended. Ricky and Robert come running down but Ricky is held back on the outside. Cornette taunts Morton in the ring because Morton can’t touch him.
6.) Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are interviewed after their match. Morton says that blood is thicker than water and this is personal now with Cornette and the Bodies. Morton says he is going to get to Jim Cornette.
7.) SMW Heavyweight Champion Brian Lee and Tammy Fytch are interviewed. Tammy is upset about the chain match and the return of Ron Wright. Lee says he might get killed in the match and can’t believe that Tammy is more worried about her clothes. Lee says that White Boy won’t even make it to the event.
8.) Kyle shoves White Boy at the start of the match to frustrate White Boy in the opening moments of the match. White Boy kicks Kyle on the knee and hammers away on Kyle with right hands. White Boy focuses his offense on the injured knee with several kicks. Kyle gets control after several strikes and attempts a slam but White Boy lands on top for a two count. Kyle scratches the back of White Boy and drops White Boy with an elbow strike. Kyle drops White Boy with a back elbow strike. Kyle gets a near fall after a couple of punches. Kyle clotheslines White Boy for another two count. White Boy heads to the top rope and hits a cross body for a near fall. Brian Lee runs into the ring but White Boy fights off both heels with strikes. Tammy Fytch punches Dirty Whtie Gril and Chris Candido whacks White Boy over the back with a violin case. White Boy is held down on the canvas while Lee goes to the top but gets crotched by Smothers. Smothers fights the heels with strikes until White Boy gets his chain and chokes Lee with his chain! White Boy is hanging Lee over the top rope! (*. The match was not entertaining but as per usual the aftermath made up for it.)
9.) Dirty White Boy and Tracy Smothers are interviewed. Smothers says they have common hatred in Candido and Lee. Smothers and White Boy are going to be partners and Smothers assures White Boy he can be trusted. White Boy says he will never lose a chain match in front of Ron Wright on February 13th.
There wasn’t anything memorable going on here this week. It was a rather standard show to promote the super card event coming up. I think White Boy is ready for another reign as champion and could possibly be the most entertaining performer SMW has.
