[1993-05-01-SMW-TV] Tracy Smothers vs The Avenger

Recommended Posts

Last few seconds. Smothers gets the win, then gets in a brawl with Tony Anthony. But DWB smacks him with some brass knucks then paints a yellow streak down his back. Tim Horner comes out with a baseball bat since he believes the punishment should match the crime, and DWB bails.

 

Smothers vows revenge!

This is a little too close to the tar-and-feathering for my liking, but still a good angle that's ahead of its time. Smothers is gonna light White Boy up like a sympathy orchestra...wait, what?

Smothers wins with his jumping elbow, then DWB is out and decks Smothers with knux or something similar. He then paints a yellow streak on Smothers's back. I love DWB, but the idea of stars & bars clad babyface just seems so backwards. 'Murrica!

The Dirty White Boy is out to provide commentary while Ron Wright watches the match from ringside to do a little prospective scouting. Smothers gets the pin and Anthony rushes the ring but Smothers sees him coming. He gets in the first shots and dropkicks the White Boy out of the ring. Anthony gets some brass knux off Wright and he slugs Smothers. He posts him and drops a leg before motioning to Wright to pass him something. Wright produces a can of spray paint and the Dirty White Boy paints a yellow streak down Smothers' back until Tim Horner comes out and Anthony leaves.

I wondered why Tammy came in so long before Chris did, but it turns out Chris was in SMW all along.

 

I wondered how they were going to keep the Smothers-Anthony feud hot after Tracy scored such a definitive victory at the Bluegrass Brawl, and between Tony's postmatch attack that night and what he did here, they certianly managed it. Tony didn't really paint Tracy's back in a straight line, though; it ended up looking more like a big yellow splotch. That's a nitpick, though.

 

Tracy and Tim's promos afterward were both very good, and Tim's served as a nice reminder that he was infinished business with Tony himself. Tim seemed angrier about what Tony did to Tracy than he ever did when Tony did things to him, or maybe he was just getting the hang of doing an angry, fired-up promo. Tracy made a mistake; he should have called Tony and Ron "no-ggod stinkin' Rebels". After all, they voluntarily dosowned the South and are proud New Yorkers now, so why would you complikment them by calling them Yankees?

 

Random question: Just what would a sympathy orchestra sound like? I guess it makes sense that it would have lights, being as how it would be dedicated to showing people sympathy.​ In all seriousness, though, they should have reshot the promo, since that line is a prime candidate for Most Nonsensical Line from a Promo in 1993.
