Opening video. Philly has just been named most hostile city in the U.S. according to news paper headlines shown in the opening.
Matty in the House is tonight’s host. He brings us to the Public Enemy and Paul E promo from the end of last week and then highlights from the When Worlds Collide main event. Terry Funk is backstage and he says he can’t believe he was double crossed. He hasn’t asked for help in ten years but it’s apparent that he needs some help now. He says he has called his brother Dory Funk to come join him.
We go to a promo highlight package of the Public Enemy to hype the Public Enemy against Terry and Dory Funk on June 24th. Public Enemy say they came from the hood to become the Tag Team Champions. Rocco Roc says that they are going to keep the belt when they face the Funk brothers.
“Wildman” Sal Bellomo vs. Mr Hughes (w/ Jason) ref Jim Molineaux (1994-02-05)
Oh no this is not going to be good at all. Hughes beats on Bellomo for a while. Sal fights back but Jason grabs his foot. Hughes hits the bossman slam and gets the win in 3.14. Pretty much a squash.
Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas says that everyone came out to the Arena this past week to see him. He talks about how he’s great.
“Ironman” Tommy Cairo is cutting a promo and Sandman attacks him and nails him with the cane and tells him to pay his bills. Back from break and Sandman is with Woman. Sandman says again that all Cairo had to do was pay the $100. Instead he now will pay him in blood. Sandman says Peaches could never be the woman that Woman is. Woman makes some sexual innuendoes.
We get the Paul E and PE promo from the end of the of the When Worlds Collide home video.
TV Champion Pitbull (w/ Jason) vs. Mikey Whipwreck ref Jim Molineaux (1994-05-13)
Jay Sulli is on commentary. UGH where was Joey this week. Well we know who wins this one now lets find out how. Oh my god i can’t explain to you how awful Sulli is. Pitbull beats on Mikey. Sulli calls a belly to belly a belly to back obviously not understanding body parts. Pitbull with a power bomb but Tazmaniac shows up and jumps onto the apron. Pitbull kicks him in the head. He goes for another kick but Tazmaniac jumps off the apron. Pitbull crotches himself on the top rope and Mikey draps an arm on him for the win and title in 5.01. The crowd erupts. That whole thing came out of no where. I guess they are adding Mikey into the underdog guys of JT Smith and Chad Austin.

My thoughts on the show
Garbage. Two awful matches and way to much Matty in the House.
