SMW Commissioner Bob Armstrong shows Jeff Daniels injury. He also tells Bob Caudle that The Dirty White Boy’s foot was on the rope so he is still the champion and he’s asking Tim Horner to return the belt.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Good episode. Best match on the show was the main event while the other matches were kept relatively short with more focus on interviews and continuing to build up storylines. I found it a bit amusing that this show was held at an elementary school and they let Kevin Sullivan do his crazy type of match there. I’d imagine some people might have complained about it at that time. Also liked how they were slowly teasing some issues between The Heavenly Bodies and The Stud Stable by having the Stud Stable on commentary during the Bodies tag match followed by the Heavenly Bodies warning them to stay in their lane. The Dark Secret is Brian Armstrong (a.k.a. The Road Dogg) under a mask and outfit that kinda looks like Badstreet so I’m guessing he borrows Brad’s gear.
