Smoky Mountain Wrestling's Man Under the Sheet payoff

Unfortunately, I have not seen much Smoky Mountain Wrestling, but Magnum GA on WCMB posted this clip and it lived up to the hype. 

Not surprisingly Arn Anderson delivered a quality promo. The way he focused on the idea that "somebody was going to get hurt" and that his pairing with the RNR Express was a big deal really hit the mark. As tired as I am of Jim Cornette's antics online, in interviews, etc. I must say his reaction was priceless. It ramped up the idea that this was a huge moment as well. You have to give credit to the promotion for delivering such a cool mystery partner. We know surprises in wrestling often don't turn out to be as exciting as they are built to be.

  1. OMG! I want to see that match now! Don't you love how Southern wrestling fans yell "boom!" when a face throws a punch! Very cool!

    Man, Bobby Eaton was so good, and it's easy to forget how over the RnR Ex were in their prime. Especially Morton. His following was similar to that of Jeff Hardy's.

    Thanks for posting this. I'd never seen it, and you're right! Cornette's reaction to AA was priceless!
