SHOW THOUGHTS: Very good episode. Thought the entire angle between Tracy Smothers and The Dirty White Boy was great. The final match with The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and Stud Stable got distracted by The Heavenly Bodies ringside and the eventual interference was good as well. Wasn’t a big fan of the Kevin Sullivan angle. A little too much in my opinion.
