He wants the fans to be thankful for what he did and claims he saw Bobby Fulton was bleeding from an old wound and since both referees were knocked out and unable to stop the match and make sure the wrestlers were okay, he went into his first aid kit and pulled out a rag and spared it with some disinfectant to wipe off Bobby Fulton’s wound.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Good show highlighted by the SMW Tag Team title match. Thought that was a good match with a bit of a weird finish since they went with Cornette using a rag that had something on it to knock out Bobby Fulton. I think it confused the fans since it was something they were probably not accustomed to. I mean, someone punches their opponent with brass knuckles or getting hit with a chair is/was more than norm in screwing over someone. More continued build-up for some of the other storylines going on in SMW.
