SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – July 11th, 1992

 

– Last week on SMW TV… The “Main Event” of The Batten Twins vs. Dixie Dy-No-Mite and Danny Davis was immediately interrupted by a scuffle with The Fantastics and Heavenly Bodies… Paul Orndorff and the Dirty White Boy aren’t scared of Ron Garvin, but Mr. Ron Wright isn’t as confident… Brian Lee continues to be a fighting Champion, easily vanquishing Paul Lee… Jimmy Golden pinned Robert Gibson under dubious circumstances, so they’ll rematch at Summer Blast… Buddy Landell and Tim Horner have incorporated a leather strap into their feud, and are also on a collision course for Summer Blast…

– Last week on SMW TV… We recapped the entire Volunteer Slam, with highlights from all seven Tournament matches, as well as the Tag Team Championship Match between the Heavenly Bodies and Party Patrol… Bobby Fulton had unkind words for the Heavenly Bodies, vowing revenge when his brother, Jackie, recovers… Tim Horner pinned Buddy Landell for the Mountain Mayhem paycheck, but Landell bloodied him up afterwards, tore the check up, and stuffed it down his throat.

Broadcast Date: March 7th, 1992
Taping Date: February 1992; Knoxville, TN

– Last week on SMW TV… Commissioner Bob Armstrong had a busy week, encouraging Robert Gibson to find back-up after being beaten up by the Koloffs and Jimmy Golden, booking a Six-Man Tag for the Fantastics and fining everyone in the brawl that ended the February 22nd episode, and let Dutch Mantel know that as long as he’s at the announcers table, Brian Lee can’t touch him. Dutch, of course, comes down with a cold when his match is scheduled to take place, and has Carl Stiles take his spot… Mr. Ron Wright encourages fans to send him money, reading a fake letter for sympathy… the Tag Team Title Tournament is coming soon, we promise!

SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – February 8th, 1992
Taped: October 30th, 1991; Memorial Auditorium; Greenville, SC

 

– Last week on SMW TV… Lots of faces were introduced to the viewing audience! Robert Gibson is here, but not Ricky Morton, Tim Horner and Brian Lee look like they’ll be positioned near the top of the babyface depth chart, and Bobby and Jackie Fulton posing as the Fantastics will be the top babyface tag team… From the heel side of things, Jim Cornette is promising a new tag team that will rival the Midnight Express in terms of success, Killer Kyle looks like he was made from the same mold as Big Bubba Rogers, and Ivan Koloff is here, along with “nephew” Vladimir (a poor man’s Nikita Koloff)… Commissioner Bob Armstrong made a point to say that rules will be followed or fines will be handed out like water… The Black Scorpion arrived and lost to an unknown enhancement talent… Color Commentator Dutch Mantel picked a fight with Brian Lee over the latter’s performance in a match against Barry Horowitz… Legendary Ron Wright, confined to a wheel chair, is looking for someone to manage to pay for his hip and knee implants (his words!).

To open the show, Orndorff and Heenan run down Hogan. According to Orndorff, “Hulkamania dies tonight!” Well, he was only 91/2 years premature on that prediction.

Location: HSBC Arena, Buffalo, New York
Attendance: 8,638
Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone, Mark Madden

This should be an interesting show as I can barely remember what’s going on with the card. However, I can remember that Vince Russo had a huge gimmick match built around him with a big SWERVE that no one (NO ONE) saw coming in a one off show. Other than that we have Kevin Nash defending against Booker T. in a cage, which certainly doesn’t feel like a step down after the big cage match about two weeks ago. Let’s get to it.
