SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – OCTOBER 3RD, 1992
– Last week on SMW TV… The Dirty White Boy finally had enough of Tim Horner, attacking him from behind and stringing him up from the top rope, Paul Orndorff failed to cash-in on the $10,000 bounty over Brian Lee’s head, The Stud Stable accused The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express of being drug addicts like Guns ‘n’ Roses, Ronnie Garvin is still upset over his towel being destroyed, and the Mystery Man behind the bounty on Lee’s head has offered to meet him in the ring at an unspecified date.
SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – SEPTEMBER 19TH, 1992
– Last week on SMW TV… The Dirty White Boy defended his SMW Heavyweight Title against “top contender” Newton Steffey, but it was revealed as a sham when the name he pulled was really Tim Horner’s… The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express assisted Dixie Dy-No-Mite and Danny Davis in upsetting The Stud Stable and have been granted a random title opportunity from Jim Cornette himself. If you don’t smell something fishy, I don’t know what to tell you… Someone is still out for Brian Lee’s blood, having sent a 2nd letter to Commissioner Bob Armstrong… Paul Orndorff and Ronne Garvin still hate each other, nothing is resolved, lather, rinse, repeat.
SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – August 15th, 1992
– Last time on SMW TV, we covered the “Fire on the Mountain” Super Card that took place on August 8th, 1992 from the Freedom Hall Civic Center in Johnson City, TN. It’s been a while since we’ve covered some Smoky Mountain Wrestling. In the last recap I published, I noted there might be a delay in the follow-up episodes due to Hurricane Irma, and yes, for a couple of weeks, I did lose electricity, and doing recaps was the furthest from my mind. At the same time, I found out my fiancée and I were expecting our first child together, and suddenly my time to watch wrestling has dwindled. I continued to do projects elsewhere, but the coverage of SMW went quiet… until now. Due to unpopular demand, we shall pick up where we left off, almost 16 months ago, as we cover the fallout from Fire on the Mountain. Hopefully another natural disaster doesn’t interfere with things.

– Last week on SMW TV… The Field of Eight for the Volunteer Slam’s Championship Tournament has been confirmed: Brian Lee, Tim Horner, Robert Gibson, Dixie Dy-No-Mite, Dirty White Boy, Jimmy Golden, Paul Orndorff, and Buddy Landel… The relationship between Dutch Mantel and Carl Stiles appears to be over… Bob Armstrong has fined Orndorff $2,500 for his piledriver parade, but that’s just a drop in the bucket for Mr. Wonderful… Buddy Landel made his in-ring debut and miraculously didn’t pull a no-show…
