1.) Chris Jericho & Lance Storm defeated The Hornet & Mike Samson
2.) SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Mike Furnas defeated Larry Santo
1.) After their squash match, a video of the Thrillseekers having a good time out in the town is aired. I’m guessing these are supposed to make them look hip and cool, and maybe it did in 1994, but it’s just silly now.
2.) Footage from the Bluegrass Brawl is shown where Bob Armstrong competed against a new wrestler named Bruiser Bedlam. Jim Cornette was also involved in the match making it a handicap match. Cornette accidentally tossed powder into the face of Bedlam. Bedlam pinned Armstrong following a middle rope axe handle. That’s a rather big victory for a new heel act in Bedlam. Bruiser presses down on the midsection of Armstrong for some reason before the locker room empties to make the save. Apparently, the claw hold is going to be a major hold for Bedlam.
3.) Bob Armstrong cut a promo following the attack saying he is still bad to the bone. We also heard from Cornette and Bruiser Bedlam. Cornette says he found Bedlam in Michigan when he was there for SummerSlam. Bedlam wanted to get in a profession where he can beat people up for a living and legally. Bedlam chimes in and insults the age of Bob Armstrong. Bedlam challenges anyone to take him on in SMW.
4.) Down & Dirty this week is Daryl Van Horn and Prince Kharis. Kharis is going to be getting a SMW Heavyweight Championship match soon against Dirty White Boy. Van Horn has some soil that is from his home country which apparently comforts Kharis. Van Horn has scissors and proceeds to cut off the thumb of Kharis, but it doesn’t hurt Kharis. SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy comes out and confronts Kharis. White Boy says that he doesn’t buy into Kharis being 3,000 years old. White Boy knocks the hat off of Van Horn and tells him to shut up. White Boy punches Kharis several times but gets sand thrown into his face. Kharis gets control and has a cobra clutch on White Boy. The locker room empties to make the save for White Boy.
5.) Brian Lee, Chris Candido and Tammy Fytch are interviewed. Fytch can’t believe that Ricky Morton kissed her last week. Fytch says her men are the best team since they beat the Express. She is filing sexual assault charges since Morton forced himself onto her. Candido credits Lee for being the reason they beat the Express. Lee says he is the man of the team and is the big dog. Lee is the man and the leader of the squad. Candido wants to be addressed as Mr. Candido, Mr. Lee and Ms. Fytch from this point forward.
6.) The end of the show is Jim Cornette and the Heavenly Bodies cutting a promo after they had a meeting with SMW board of directors. They attempted to have the contract thrown out where they would have to leave the company if they lost the cage match to the Express. They lost the match and they lost their appeal, too. Jimmy Del Ray is sick and tired of Bob Armstrong. Anyway, the ending of the promo is the trio slowly walking out the building dejected and sad with the outcome.
More of a rundown of what happened at Bluegrass Brawl. Lacked anything of real entertainment. The company lost their best heel tag team in the Bodies, and I’ll assume Lee and Candido will attempt to replace them. No interest in a Prince Kharis/Dirty White Boy feud.
