Tim Horner & The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express promos for Knoxville show.

They announce next week’s main event will be a $10,000 Bounty match between Brian Lee and Paul Orndorff.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Excellent episode with two important matches on the show. I thought both the tag title match and the Horner vs. Dirty White Boy matches were good. The great thing about SMW was how these shows continue feuds week by week with several storylines including the Brian Lee bounty, the Garvin and Orndorff feud, the Stud Stable & Rock ‘n’ Roll Express feud and Tim Horner finally getting his hands on The Dirty White Boy. Even when there might be someone feuding that isn’t on the show, they give you a reminder during the show.
