The Dirty White Boy and Mr. Ron Wright join Bob Caudle for an interview. Mr. Wright says he is a very weaken condition because of Tim Horner and that he’s been told he could lose his sight. He starts to cry about his condition and said that the glass got into his eyes and talks about Horner’s continued attacks on him. He tells the fans that they should be ashamed of themselves and pray for him.

The Dirty White Boy asks what kind of man Tim Horner is for attacking a “poor old cripple man”. He says Mr. Wright was at one time the greatest professional wrestler of all-time. He says several men got their butt beat by this man. He says that he’s trying to make money to help Mr. Wright. He doesn’t see Tim Horner being a nice guy because all he sees is Horner attacking a “poor old crippled man”. He asks Horner to please leave Mr. Ron Wright alone.

Bob Caudle says that the fans don’t see it that way and has never known Tim Horner to be the type of man to attack an old man. Mr. Ron Wright asks Caudle why he took out the part of the video were Tim Horner tells him that he’s going to kill him. He says that he heard that with his own ears.

The Dirty White Boy has an announcement to make in the ring. He enters the ring and announces that if Horner was there right now that he would give him a shot at the SMW Heavyweight Title. He doesn’t think Horner has the guts to be there and is probably at home. Tim Horner shows up and The Dirty White Boy asks Mr. Ron Wright about Horner not supposedly being there. Several men show up to hold back Horner which leads to The Dirty White Boy acting tough and asking how much he’s paying all those men to hold him back and asks Horner if his wife is the one who wears the pants in their family.

SMW Commissioner Bob Armstrong won’t allow Horner to enter the ring and tells him the doctor won’t allow him to enter the ring. The Dirty White Boy heads over to the announcers table and he continues to rant about Horner. Horner charges at him and they start to brawl. Horner beats on The Dirty White Boy throughout the gym. Horner can be heard yelling that he’s going to pull The Dirty White Boy’s eye out as the TV time runs out.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Good episode. Matches were short and not much went on with those but they continued their main storylines with a strong finishing segment between The Dirty White Boy and Tim Horner. Mr. Ron Wright’s promo on Horner attacking him was excellent. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express unveiling Mama Cornette’s photo was funny and Cornette going crazy and agreeing to give them a tag title match was great.
