– Last week on SMW TV… Buddy Landell won an “18” Man Mountain Mayhem Battle Royal, last eliminating Tim Horner, despite being thrown out moments earlier. Unfortunately for Horner, the referees were distracted by an altercation between Brian Lee and the Dirty White Boy on the opposite side of the ring, allowing Landell to pull the underhanded tactic. On the bright side, Bob Armstrong has ordered a one-on-one match where Landell and Horner will compete for the $5,000 prize.

– 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!
