1.) Chris Candido defeated Steve Skyfire
2.) SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Lance Storm defeated Boo Bradley by disqualification
3.) The Gangstas defeated Anthony Michaels & Doug Dalton
4.) Bruiser Bedlam & Killer Kyle defeated Dirty White Boy & Tracy Smothers
1.) Chris Candido, Tammy Fytch and Boo Bradley are interviewed. Candido is still determined to get Ricky Morton’s head shaved bald. He hasn’t forgotten about how Lance Storm cheated him out of the TV Championship. He has a plan for Lance Storm. Fytch isn’t going to reveal any kind of plan but continues to put over Bradley as his favorite pet. Fytch knows that Bradley will be worth it when it’s all said and done.
2.) Boo Bradley attacks Brian Logan and is now challenging Lance Storm tonight. Boo charges towards Storm but can’t make contact. Bradley delivers several shots on Storm but Storm hits a cross body for a near fall. Bradley misses a cross body and is dropkicked to the floor. Boo pulls Storm to the floor and sends Lance into the guard railing chest first. Bradley stops Storm with a knee lift to the midsection and drops a leg. Bradley spin kicks Storm sending both men over the top to the floor. Boo scoop slams Storm and heads to the top rope but misses a leg drop. Storm backdrops Bradley and follows up on the attack with chops. Storm dropkicks Bradley but only gets a near fall. Storm goes for a springboard cross body but Bradley didn’t turnaround for the spot. Candido enters the ring and causes the disqualification. Candido decks Jericho as well. Candido hits a top rope diving head butt onto Jericho! (*1/4. Bradley is a little green as evident by the inability to be for Storm on the cross body. I could be interested in a tag feud between these four when Jericho is healthy enough.)
3.) Lance Storm is interviewed hoping that Jericho hasn’t suffered a worse injury thanks to Chris Candido hitting a top rope head butt just moments ago. Storm says that if they did then he will make sure that they pay.
4.) The Gangstas are interviewed by Les Thatcher in the ring following their victory. New Jack says he doesn’t care about Gibson and Morton and enjoyed hitting them with their nightsticks. Jack says they can beat the Express without their crew of guys. Jack says they can get it on whenever they want to.
5.) Jim Cornette, Killer Kyle and Bruiser Bedlam are interviewed. Cornette doesn’t appreciate not knowing who the new commissioner is. Cornette wants to manage the SMW Heavyweight Champion and he believes that Bedlam is the man to win the title for him. Cornette says that White Boy will go back to old lady hurting and complaining that he isn’t the champion anymore.
6.) Cornette tosses some alcohol into the eyes of Bob Armstrong to put the good guys at a disadvantage. Smothers hammers away on Bedlam and Kyle to start the match. Smothers knocks Kyle down with a forearm. Smothers hits a cross body on Kyle but is stopped by Bedlam. Bedlam casually slams Smothers to the canvas and Kyle remains in the ring legally to work over Smothers. Cornette nails Smothers with his tennis racket. Kyle drives Smothers down with a side slam as Dirty White Boy has replaced Bob Armstrong to be Tracy’s partner. Bedlam hits a vertical suplex on Smothers. Bedlam stops Smothers with an elbow drop. Smothers nearly pins Kyle with a rollup but Bruiser made the save to continue the bout. Smothers is prevented from making the tag while Kyle has a bear hug locked in. Smothers clotheslines Bedlam and looks to tag in White Boy, but Kyle stops him again. Tracy takes Kyle over with a belly to belly suplex and finally tags in White Boy. White Boy cleans house with strikes. White Boy big boots Kyle for a near fall. All four men are brawling in the ring as the referee is losing control. Cornette whacks White Boy with his tennis racket and Bedlam gets a pin on White Boy. (*1/4. A basic tag match and the finish doesn’t give Bedlam much creditability against White Boy considering he recently lost clean to the champ on television. The crowd seems flat for this stuff.) After the match, Bob Armstrong cleans house with his metal bat.
7.) Bob Armstrong, Tracy Smothers and SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy are interviewed to close the program. Armstrong promises that Jim Cornette will remember this September until the day he dies. Smothers says they are going to get the best of the union. White Boy wonders why Bedlam needs the help of Cornette to beat him. White Boy says that Bedlam doesn’t have guts to battle him straight up.
A simple week of television touching on the same feuds we’ve seen for a few weeks now. The White Boy/Bedlam stuff is boring and it doesn’t help that I’m far more interested in the tag title feud right now. It wasn’t a bad episode but there just wasn’t much substance here.
Thanks for reading.
