Bob Caudle welcomed us to the show. With him as always was Dutch Mantell. Caudle advised that today weâ€™d see recaps of last weekendâ€™s Fire on the Mountain show, including interviews with some of the competitors.
Mantell announced he had good news and bad news. First, Mantell advised that the good news was that the Dirty White Boy had defeated Brian Lee to capture the heavyweight title. The bad news was that, after the barbed wire match, there were no tag team champions.
Caudle quickly interjected that the Fantastics had won the gold. Mantell also announced that he had a special guest on Down and Dirty and DWB would defend the belt against Dixie Dynomite later today.
We came back to commentary after a commercial as Caudle introduced the heavyweight title match.
We joined the match as Brian Lee was in control by taking DWB down with clotheslines and then a dropkick. Lee whipped DWB and hit a powerslam for a two count. Lee slugged DWB and whipped him, then nailed a back elbow that sent DWB out of the ring and onto the floor right in front of Ron Wright. Wright gave DWB a chain and sent him back in.
DWB climbed onto the apron and popped Lee with the chain. DWB ditched the weapon and covered for a two. DWB dropped a knee and started kicking Lee. DWB started firing punches and then whipped Lee. Lee dodged a clothesline and hit a flying clothesline of his own. Lee climbed to the top and missed a knee drop.
DWB followed Lee outside and kept working him over. Lee blocked when DWB tried to send him into the commentary table and rammed his head into it instead. Lee and DWB traded punches and Lee sent DWB back in. Ron Wright distracted referee Mark Curtis as Lee hit the Cancellation and covered. A new face hit the ring and clotheslined Lee while Curtis had his back turned. DWB covered and got the win and the title.
We went backstage where Lee was doing an interview. Lee said that the clothesline was loaded and heâ€™d make DWB and Wright pay for what theyâ€™d done.
From there we went to Caudle, who was with DWB and Wright. Caudle asked who the attacker was and Wright said it must have been a fan, because he didnâ€™t know who it was. Wright said that heâ€™d been afraid heâ€™d been having a heart attack and was asking Curtis to call an ambulance for him.
Caudle asked DWB. DWB said all he knew was that heâ€™d pinned Lee to win the title.
Bob Armstrong came in and said that if theyâ€™d had anything to do with the mystery man, then heâ€™d strip the DWB of the title and Wright would have to put his operation on hold.
DWB reiterated his innocence and Caudle sent us to commercial.
We came back to find Tim Horner with Caudle. Horner said that he knew that DWB had proclaimed himself a fighting champion, and he wanted to throw his name into the pot. Horner said he believed that he could be a champion and asked for a title shot.
Caudle then introduced the barbed wire match between the Fantastics and the Heavenly Bodies.
We joined the match as all four men were brawling inside the cage. Prichard tried to climb the cage and escape only for Jackie to crack his head into the cageâ€™s wooden frame. Prichard fell to the mat and Bobby picked him up. Bobby threw Prichard into the barbed wire and Jackie got attacked by Stan Lane.
Bobby fought to take Laneâ€™s headgear off as Jackie sent Prichard back into the wire. Jackie sent Prichard in a third time as Bobby kept working on the headgear. Jackie took Prichard to the wire again and Cornette threw powder into his eyes. Prichard rolled Jackie up and got a two count.
Bob Armstrong evicted Cornette as both Bodies attacked Bobby. Bobby clapped Laneâ€™s wounded ears and sent him into the wire, and then took Prichard down. Jackie got Prichard off Bobby and Prichard popped him before returning his attention to Bobby.
Prichard and Lane got set for a double backdrop and Jackie dropkicked them. Bobby got Lane down in a pinning predicament and Prichard broke it up at the two count. Prichard hit a sit down powerbomb on Jackie and Bobby broke up the pin.
Lane hit a Russian leg sweep and covered for two. Prichard hit a suplex on Jackie and climbed the ropes. Prichard missed an elbow drop and Bobby pulled Lane up, then sent him back into the wire. Cornette came back down and threw his racket to Prichard, only for Armstrong to confiscate the racket. Jackie rolled Prichard up and Armstrong made the count to award the belts to the Fantastics.
We joined the Bodies and Cornette in the locker room. Prichard blamed Armstrong for the loss for taking the racket. Cornette added that Armstrong had let the Fantastics do whatever they wanted to while he stopped the Bodies from using the racket. Cornette demanded a rematch and promised a lawsuit if he didnâ€™t make the match.
We then joined the Fantastics. Jackie said that this was the toughest match heâ€™d ever fought and thanked the fans for their support. Bobby said that all theyâ€™d done was prove that the Bodies couldnâ€™t beat the Fantastics when Cornette was removed from the equation. Bobby said that theyâ€™d had to wait for their title shot after Jackieâ€™s knee injury, and now it was the Bodiesâ€™ turn to wait.
We came back to commentary as Caudle sent us to commercial.
We came back to Down and Dirty, where Dutch was joined by Killer Kyle and Jim Cornette. Cornette said that the reason Kyle didnâ€™t talk was because there wasnâ€™t anyone around worth talking to. Cornette then announced that heâ€™d be sharing Kyleâ€™s thoughts with the world.
Cornette brought up Kyleâ€™s upcoming boxing match against Dixie. Cornette put over the power of Kyleâ€™s punches and promised that Dixie would get knocked out. Cornette brought out Mike Samson for a visual demonstration. Mike held up a board and Kyle split the board with one punch. Cornette promised Dixie that this would happen to him in the boxing match. Mantell asked if Cornette was Kyleâ€™s new manager and Cornette confirmed it.
We came back from commercial to find Paul Orndorff with Caudle. Orndorff said that he didnâ€™t need the fans cheering for him because he had the money and the skill to make up for it. Orndorff put over everyone heâ€™d put down with the piledriver and then Bob Armstrong came in.
Armstrong asked Orndorff if heâ€™d had anything to do with the mystery man. Orndorff protested his innocence and Armstrong promised severe consequences if heâ€™d been involved.
Orndorff said that he had enough money to get out of anything.
From there we went to the ring where Jimmy Golden and Robert Fuller were waiting. â€œOld Time Rock and Rollâ€ started playing to usher out the Rock n Roll Express.
Morton and Gibson hit the ring and Golden and Fuller attacked. The Express danced around a whip attempt and sent the Stud Stable into each other.
We jumped ahead to find Golden working over Morton. Morton hit a sunset flip and Fuller distracted the ref. Gibson hit the ring to show the ref what was going on and Golden kicked out.
Morton got a small package for two and ran between Goldenâ€™s legs before getting the tag to Gibson. Gibson attacked both members of the Stable and hit a body press on Golden for a two before Fuller broke it up.
Morton attacked Fuller and Fuller threw him out of the ring. Fuller grabbed Gibson from behind and Golden went for a clothesline only for Gibson to duck. The Express hit a double dropkick on Golden and got a two before Fuller pulled the ref out of the ring.
Gibson hit a body slam but the ref was outside. Golden reversed a whip and Gibson got a sleeper. As the ref admonished Morton, Fuller came off the second rope with a double axe handle. Golden landed on top and Morton rolled them over as Fuller was ushered to the apron. The ref counted to three and the Express got the win as Fuller tried to figure out what had happened.
Fuller attacked the Express and pitched Morton out of the ring, then Fuller held Gibson while Golden attacked him with punches and a double axe handle. The Stable whipped Gibson and hit a double clothesline, then Morton got back into the ring. Morton fought both members of the Stable off Gibson, and Fuller started attacking Morton.
Fuller tied Morton to the tree of woe while Golden hammered Gibson before pitching the ref out of the ring. With Morton out of the picture, Golden and Fuller attacked Gibson before Fuller returned to stomping Morton.
Gibson crawled across the ring and Fuller cut him off. Golden and Fuller finally decided that theyâ€™d done enough and left the ring as the ref checked on Ricky Morton.
We went backstage to see Fuller and Golden. Golden said that the Express hadnâ€™t won a match and promised that they were ready for any match the Express wanted. Fuller added that the war against the Express had just gotten started.
From there we went to commentary, where Caudle was with the Express. Robert said that the Stable had jumped him, heâ€™d called Morton, and they were taking care of business. Morton said that Rock n Roll was there to stay, and they werenâ€™t afraid of the Stable. Morton said that Fuller could say whatever he wanted, but they did their talking inside the ring.
We came back from commercial to find Dixie Dynomite entering the ring. He was soon followed by the DWB and Ron Wright.
The bell rang and the two locked up. DWB backed Dixie into a corner and then shoved him away. Another locked up saw Dixie in the corner and DWB landed a chop before backing off.
The two locked up again and Dixie went back to the corner. DWB landed another chop and Dixie started firing back. Dixie backdropped DWB and nailed a dropkick that sent DWB scurrying for the floor.
DWB and Wright regrouped a moment before the champion returned to the ring. The two locked up again and DWB got a wristlock that he turned into an armbar. Dixie hiptossed DWB and jawed at him a moment.
The two locked up and DWB got a headlock. Dixie fought back and whipped his way free, then DWB put him down with a shoulderblock. DWB ran the ropes and Dixie hit an armdrag and then a dropkick that sent DWB to the outside for another conference.
DWB returned to the ring and another lockup saw Dixie get a headlock. DWB punched Dixie in the ribs to escape and tried to whip his way free. A second attempt succeeded and DWB threw him through the ropes.
Killer Kyle came out of nowhere and cracked Dixie in the leg with something. DWB pulled Dixie into the ring and started stomping the injury. DWB ground his knee into Dixieâ€™s knee and kept the pressure on.
DWB missed an elbow drop and Dixie started punching back. Dixieâ€™s leg gave out as he tried to slam DWB and Dixie fell. DWB landed on top and maintained the pin to retain his title.
We came back from commercial to find Caudle joined by Dixie. Dixie said that the fans had seen Killer Kyleâ€™s actions. Dixie said that no matter what Kyle had done, he was still standing.
Caudle told us that weâ€™d see Orndorff take on Ronnie Garvin next week and said goodbye for another week.
