The Storm Trooper has the Nazi symbol on the front and back of his shirt. Dixie Dynamite wears a Confederate flag to the ring. 1992 wrestling folks!

Dixie Dynamite and The Storm Trooper lock up. Dixie gets in a kick and a chop. Dutch Mantell wants to know why Caudle keeps mentioning that Dixie Dynamite is smaller than every opponent he’s in the ring against. He jokes that Dynamite might be smaller that someone with anorexia. Dynamite catches the Storm Trooper with a clothesline and then gets him in an armbar. Trooper gets in a few forearms at Dynamite but Dynamite whips him into the ropes and gets Storm Trooper with a dropkick that sends Trooper to the outside.

Storm Trooper gets back in the ring but Dynamite uses his speed to continue to take down the Storm Trooper. He goes back to using an armbar.

The Dirty White Boy attacks Brian Lee! He DDTs Brian Lee and stomps on him an claws at his eyes. This turns into an extra match with The Dirty White Boy beating on Brian Lee.

The Fantastics come out for an interview and they too have barbed wire. Jackie holds barbed wire while Bobby grabs some newspaper and runs it thru the barbed wire. He calls the Heavenly Bodies, “paper champions”. He says that if Cornette tries to get into the ring he’s going to look like shredded wheat.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Good show. It was easy to watch. The matches were okay but the post-match of the final match with Brian Lee having to fight off a few guys before The Dirty White Boy got in and ended up losing was good. The Stud Stable talking about trying to teach the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express about respect was solid as well. The Heavenly Bodies & Jim Cornette and the Fantastics interviews were excellent in continuing to build up that barbed wire match. I was amused to watch The Dixie Dynamite match since it featured one guy wearing a confederate flag to the ring wrestling a guy wearing a shirt with Nazi symbols. It comes off a little silly now but I’m sure it would offend others. Thank goodness there was no twitter back then otherwise I’d have to mute everyone on there.
