Stetson and Hotbody have lost the titles as of the airing of this show but this match took place the day before they lost them. Since the title change was shown last week they are not announced as champions here nor do they have the belts. They show the title change from November to Remember before the match starts. Smith has his knee still wrapped up. Stetson and Sandman start off. Sandman with the offense early on hitting a body slam and clothesline. Stetson goes to the floor and they all regroup. Back in the ring Stetson goes after the Sandman’s leg and then tags Hotbody who stays on the leg. They tag in and out a few times staying on the leg. Hotbody hits a suplex and tags out. Sandman has a few chances to tag but waves off Smith because of his injury. Smith ends up tagging himself in but gets his leg taken out right away. Stetson misses a top rope leg drop. Both teams make tags. Sandman gets behind Hotbody and runs him to the ropes to roll him up but Hotbody ducks and Robbins hits Sandman with his cane. Hotbody gets the cover and win in 7.16. Peaches jumps on Robbins in the ring and he throws her off before Sandman chases them all off.

My thoughts on the show…
Not a good one this week two total squash matches and the competitive matches weren’t any good. Not enough focus on Shane Douglas or Sabu the last few weeks if you ask me. Thumbs down skip it.
