1.) The Gangstas defeated Anthony Michaels & Brian Logan
2.) Boo Bradley defeated SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Lance Storm to win the title
3.) Bob Armstrong defeated Killer Kyle by disqualification
1.) The Gangstas are interviewed following their victory. Mustafa has a noose with him. New Jack wonders if the Rock N’ Roll Express thought they were soft and easy cotton pickers. He says that the Express are in for the fight of their life. They are going to hurt them and he doesn’t care what he is going to have to bring to the ring to take them out. He is coming here to get paid and to put an end to a myth that they created rock n’ roll because the Gangstas did and let them borrow it for awhile.
2.) SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy is interviewed regarding Bruiser Bedlam. White Boy says he has never been so embarrassed in his life when Bedlam whipped him with a belt. White Boy is confident that Jim Cornette will not have a champion in his stable. There is going to be a stipulation where if Bedlam wins then he can whip White Boy with a leather strap ten times. However, if White Boy wins then White Boy can whip Bedlam five times with a strap and Jim Cornette would get the other five. He is going to draw blood with each whip and going to beat Cornette up like his mother should have done a long time ago. White Boy says that Cornette can avoid the strap by saying he quits and thus he would leave Smoky Mountain Wrestling forever.
3.) Bradley has the early advantage working over Storm in the corner with strikes followed by a splash. Storm nails Bradley with a spin kick and an arm drag. Boo works over Storm with chops against the ropes. Bradley power slams Storm and heads to the top rope where he misses a moonsault. Storm hits a missile dropkick but Bradley kicks out. Storm decks Candido off the apron and Brian Lee is out to brawl with Candido. Boo gets his chain and decks Storm to win the match and title. (*. Mostly used as an angle advancement as the action wasn’t all that great and it was a quick match.) After the match, Brian Lee is choked out by Bradley and Candido. Another wrestler comes in but is met with a piledriver by Candido! Storm gets up and chases the heels from the ring.
4.) SMW Tag Team Champions Rock N’ Roll Express are interviewed backstage at a recent live event. Morton talks about beating the Gangstas every time they have competed in the ring. Morton says they can toss the rules out just like them to retain the titles. Morton says the Gangstas came to SMW with zero respect towards them but at the end of this they will respect them.
5.) Jim Cornette and Bruiser Bedlam are interviewed. Cornette talks about the Gangstas not talking to him about their upcoming Rage in the Cage match on September 30th. Cornette believes the five whips with a strap are cruel and unusual punishment. He isn’t taking five lashes from the redneck that is Dirty White Boy.
6.) Chris Candido, Tammy Fytch and SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion Boo Bradley are interviewed. Canddio puts over Bradley for getting revenge on Brian Lee and Lance Storm. Bob Armstrong comes over and has a message for Candido. Armstrong has a message from the new commissioner. Armstrong says that Candido has been suspended for four weeks for delivering a piledriver.
7.) Jim Cornette comes out with his arm in a sling and neck brace to get himself out of wrestling Bob Armstrong in a handicap match. Kyle attacks Armstrong before the bell and drives Armstrong down with a side slam for a near fall. Bob hammers away on Kyle several times and drops Kyle with a chop. Cornette enters and attempts an elbow drop but hits Kyle on accident. The referee calls for the bell as Armstrong fights off both heels. Bruiser Bedlam enters the ring and attacks Armstrong allowing Cornette to get several strikes on Armstrong. Dirty White Boy runs in with a strap to make the save.
8.) Bob Armstrong and SMW Heavyweight Champion Dirty White Boy are interviewed. Armstrong has a big surprise for Jim Cornette next week. White Boy wants to get a piece of Bedlam’s booty with his strap.
Well, this was a bad episode of SMW TV I’d say. Nothing new was developed and they just touched on the feuds with essentially the same promo work.
