The Stud Stable join Bob Caudle for an interview. Jimmy Golden insults the fans and then says Ricky Morton robbed him.

Fuller talks about how the Stud Stable is a tag team that should be in Madison Square Garden or Atlanta and starts screaming at The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express as TV time runs out.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Another good episode. The matches were all pretty short and were used to advance feud. The Brian Lee $10,000 bounty placed by a mystery person continued. That’s been done really well with only the mystery man attacking him and the addition of someone taking credit for these attacks and also vowing revenge on Bob Armstrong has added an extra layer to this story. The Dirty White Boy pulling out contenders names out of a hat has been great as well. They did a great job building up Tim Horner trying to get that title match. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express feud with The Stud Stable continued on this show and now we have The Heavenly Bodies issuing their challenge to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. Good show overall.
