Chokeslam pin .13. Two more after the match.
Joey Styles tells us that everyones favorite underdog Chad Austin is going to take on Johnny Hotbody again. Hotbody will have long time partner Tony “Hitman” Stetson at his side.
Chad Austin vs. Johnny Hotbody (w/ Tony “Hitman” Stetson) ref John Finnegan
Stetson makes fun of Hotbody for getting knocked out last week by Austin. Austin keeps getting the upper hand because Stetson is making fun of Hotbody causing them to argue. Austin flips out of a suplex and wins with a school boy in 3.20. Stetson gets in the ring and again makes fun of Hotbody. They argue and push each other a bit and then leave.
Styles hypes hypes next weeks show.
Pat Tanaka vs. Keith Shearer ref Jim Molineaux
Tanaka extends his hand and Shearer attacks him. Suplex and head butt. Tanaka fights back and hits a tiger bomb for the win 2.13.
Matty in the House has a some words from a bunch of wrestlers about what happened during the press conference after the show on Saturday.
Hunter Q. Robbins III says that he has brought on “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka to be his new charge.
Jay Sulli spoke with both Snuka and Tommy Dreamer before their match. Snuka says he is only there for the money not the fans and Dreamer has no business even standing next to him. Dreamer is upset that Snuka has turned like this since he has been a fan for so long. Dreamer is so shocked he can hardly talk. Snuka yells at Dreamer for calling him old. This went on for like 5 minutes.
Tommy Dreamer vs. Jimmy Snuka (w/ Hunter Q Robbins) ref Jim Molineaux
All the stalling in the beginning of the match is edited out. Dreamer slams Snuka to the mat twice. Snuka bails to the floor. Back in the ring Dreamer charges but Snuka ducks and Dreamer goes over the top to the floor. Snuka with a back breaker and superbly splash but Dreamer kicks out! Snuka is in shock. Snuka goes up and hits another one but doesn’t go for the cover. Snuka goes up top for a third superfly splash. Snuka covers and gets the easy pin. After the match Snuka hits another one as Dreamer coughs up blood. Snuka goes up top for another one but Tod Gordon comes out and tells him to stop. Snuka jumps off and hits Gordon with a double axe handle. I was expecting to hate this but I did not.
A short highlight reel of Mike Awesome airs showing highlights of a match with him against Mikey Whipwreck and Keith Shearer.
We get a replay of the press conference from Saturday night to end the show.
My thoughts on the show
Easy pass on this one. Although the press conference is awesome we just watched it though.
