SMW TV 12/11/1993
Written by: Bob Colling
From: Jefferson, NC
1.) Rock N’ Roll Express defeated Larry Santo & Paul Lee
2.) SMW Heavyweight Champion Brian Lee defeated Chris Canyon
3.) Michael Collins & Rock Regal defeated The Moondogs by disqualification
4.) Tracy Smothers defeated SMW Tag Team Champion Jimmy Del Ray to win the vacant SMW Beat The Champ TV Championship
1.) The 12/4 show was a highlight/recap show for the Thanksgiving Thunder event, which I’ve reviewed. So, this is the return of original programming for SMW.
2.) Jim Cornette has gotten the Moondogs licensed to compete in Smoky Mountain Wrestling. Also, Tim Horner is hurt due to Prince Kharis and thus two men will compete to become the new SMW Beat The Champ TV Champion.
3.) Jim Cornette is interviewed regarding the Christmas Chaos tour. Cornette says that the Bullet will put his mask on the line against Dick Murdoch. Cornette had to only put up $5,000 against the mask of the Bullet. When it is revealed the Bullet is Bob Armstrong, he will be banned forever from SMW. Bullet shares pre-tape comments saying if he beats Murdoch in Knoxville that Cornette would have to shave his head along with his $5,000! Cornette is freaking out and looks at the contract shocked to see it in the contract. The fans love the idea of Cornette being bald.
4.) SMW Tag Team Champions the Heavenly Bodies and Jim Cornette are interviewed. Cornette says that Doug and Mike Furnas will have some bad news coming their way when they meet the Bodies in the ring. Cornette doesn’t like the color orange for Tennessee or for Doug and Mike Furnas. Cornette has some spray paint and paints an orange sweatshirt the color yellow. Mike Furnas comes running out with his football helmet to scare the heels away. Mike introduces some pre-tape comments from Doug Furnas. It’s hard to hear Doug, but he puts over his brother and thinks it is a great idea to compete in SMW together.
5.) We see footage from a recent live event where The Bruise Brothers defeated the Heavenly Bodies in a gang fight. Afterward, the Moondogs came out and attacked the Bruise Brothers similar to Thanksgiving Thunder. The Heavenly Bodies and the Moondogs beat the crap out of the Bruise Brothers for several minutes.
6.) The Bruise Brothers are freaking out at the arena. They want a piece of the Moondogs saying they can take whatever the Moondogs give them. They want them to show them what they got.
7.) Tim Horner shared some pre-tape comments while wearing a neck brace. Horner doesn’t know what Prince Kharis had on his forearm when he was hit. Horner was seriously hurt in Atlanta awhile ago and could be paralyzed forever. Horner knows that he will be out a few months due to the injuries inflicted by Kharis. Horner thanks Dirty White Boy for helping him.
8.) Down & Dirty this week is with Darryl Van Horn, the manager of Prince Kharis. Van Horn suggests that Mantel ask Horner what Prince Kharis is all about. They would have finished off Horner if it weren’t for Dirty White Boy. Apparently, Bobby Blaze wants to get revenge for Horner. Van Horn hates Blaze because he is from Kentucky. He will reveal next week how he found Prince Kharis.
9.) SMW Heavyweight Champion Brian Lee and Tammy Fytch are interviewed regarding a triple threat match at Christmas Chaos where Lee defends against Tracy Smothers and Dirty White Boy. Fytch finds this to be completely unfair because Smothers isn’t worthy and White Boy doesn’t deserve to be champion. Tammy has to look across the ring and look at Dirty White Girl. Lee says that he couldn’t be taken out by Smothers or White Boy. Lee is going to beat two men in the same match in the same night.
10.) Del Ray attacks Smothers before the bell and delivers several right hands but Smothers recovers to hit a couple of dropkicks. Smothers yanks Del Ray out of the corner and slams Del Ray to the canvas for a near fall. Del Ray bails to the floor to regroup after the quick offense by Smothers. Smothers slingshots Del Ray into the ring from the apron. Del Ray plants Smothers with a float over DDT to get the advantage. Del Ray works over Smothers with a few strikes and a snap suplex. Smothers comes off the ropes and is met with a superkick. Smothers nearly wins with a sunset flip but Del Ray quickly comes back with a clothesline. Cornette gets a cheap shot in while the referee is distracted. Brian Lee and Tammy Fytch come out to ringside and they appear to be working with Cornette. Dirty White Boy and Dirty White Girl come to ringside as well. Del Ray leaps off the top but misses a diving head butt! Smothers backdrops Del Ray and a leaping forearm shot. Smothers heads to the top rope and hits a spinning uppercut to pin Del Ray! (**. It was a quick match and enjoyable for what it was since Del Ray and Smothers are two of the better workers in the promotion.)
11.) Dirty White Boy and Dirty White Girl are interviewed to end the program. White Boy can’t stand Brian Lee and Tammy Fytch. He came out because he doesn’t want Lee and Fytch to go over anyone else. White Boy is going to make their lives a living hell. Tracy Smothers comes over and tells White Boy that he doesn’t want nor does he need the help. He doesn’t want to owe White Boy anything. Smothers is going to do whatever he has to do in order to be a three time SMW Heavyweight Champion. White Boy is confident he will be the new SMW Heavyweight Champion at Christmas Chaos.
A decent episode this week as Smothers and Del Ray had a fine little match. I don’t have much interest in the Bruise Brothers/Moondogs feud since it will just be mindless brawling with weapons. I hope there is footage of the triple threat match since I know Christmas Chaos wasn’t a super card release.
Thanks for reading.
