[1993-12-18-SMW-TV] Interview: The Bullet / Dick Murdoch vignette / Down and Dirty: Jim Cornette

Recommended Posts

First, we get a really old-style Bullet promo hyping his upcoming match against Dick Murdoch with Cornette's hair on the line.

 

Then, we cut to another Murdoch tape sent in. In a hilarious moment, he accuses Brian Armstrong of shooting unarmed Iraqis during Desert Storm!

 

Finally, Cornette is Dutch's guest on Down and Dirty. Cornette is getting "Baldie" chants and doesn't like it one bit. I actually like Cornette's suit here.

That is the best part of this segment. These tapes from Murdoch are so low-tech, there's something a bit seedy here...

Bullet wants Cornette's head to resemble a billiard ball with it being shaved smooth. Bullet not really trying to hide that he is Armstrong.

 

I would have thought Murdoch would be drinking something much stronger than Coors Light.

Not sure you're allowed to drink anything besides Coors in Colorado. Murdoch is incredible, with too many great lines to count. Smoky Mountain is probably the only promotion around not under federal indictment! Jimmy is beside himself about the Baldie chants, and Mantell has to HOLD HIM BACK, as he warns us, from viciously assaulting the fans! Dutch is a philanthropist of the highest order as he demonstrates here.

Dutch has some comments from The Bullet which he wants to play before hearing from Jim Cornette.

 

The Bullet says that it’s just a few days away until he gets a chance to prove to everyone that he can beat Dick Murdoch, can take Jim Cornette’s money and most of all, can take his hair. He’s going to honour his contract and if he loses he’s going to take off the mask, and if he is Bob Armstrong, he’s history. If he wins though, he’s going to have every Armstrong in the country and every fan of his in Knoxville to make sure that Cornette honours his end of the deal, even if that means they have to surround the ring and make sure he doesn’t leave until he has been shaved bald.

 

Back on Down & Dirty and Cornette doesn’t want to hear these ‘baldy’ chants, but wants to hear some comments from a real man, Dick Murdoch, who he’s had to have his mother buy a house for in order to stop this carnage on Christmas night in Knoxville.

 

Murdoch is in a restaurant bar with a woman drinking another Coors Light. It’s going to cost Mama Cornette a lot of money over the holidays as he’s flying in at great expense to come and whip one of those inbred, nothing happening, melon farming, Tennessee heroes in Bob Armstrong. He knows Armstrong and his snotty nosed kids well. There’s Brad, who whimpers every time he gets whipped and that other one who was in the marines and fought in Desert Storm, the one who got all his medals by shooting unarmed Iraqi’s. He’s gutless just like his old man! He’s going to drink his beer, have a good time, watch the snow fall and get ready for the holiday season when he’ll be coming to Tennessee to whip Bob Armstrong like a step child. Smoky Mountain Wrestling is probably the only promotion not under federal indictment at the moment as they run a legitimate company, but after Christmas, Mama Cornette, JC and himself are going to buy it, run it and make a lot of money!

 

We again return to Down & Dirty and both Dutch and Cornette are still trying to get the crowd to calm down, ‘don’t make me turn him loose’ warns Dutch as he is holding Cornette back from them. Cornette says he agreed to put up $5,000 of his mother’s money against The Bullet at Christmas Chaos if The Bullet would put his mask up. He bought in Dick Murdoch to beat him so that he will have to take off that mask and Bob Armstrong will then be banished forever, but Smoky Mountain Wrestling slipped something in the contract that he signed, contract tampering if you will, and added a clause that in Knoxville on Christmas night it will be his hair at stake. After all the things he’s done to Bob Armstrong he knows that the final revenge and humiliation he could heap on him would be to beat Dick Murdoch and then shave his head in the middle of the ring. He guarantees Bob Armstrong that he will do anything, will take any measure and will pay any price to see that Dick Murdoch beats him, reveals his identity and gets him banished from SMW for life.

 

Dutch is very funny here sucking up to Cornette as he has a tendency to do.

I couldn't get into this knowing that the match in Knoxville turned out to be a gyp. Never has so much hot air been wasted on something that turned out to be so totally meaningless.

 

On the off chance that they actually went through with the stop for the people in Knoxville (Bullet Bob is unmasked and banned after he loses), I wonder how they explaned his return, and under the same mask yet. They probably didn't even bother, come to think of it.

Good old school Bullet promo running down Cornette and threatening that he is going to go bald. Murdoch looks right at home with the animal skin behind him and the Coors in his hand. He gives a good promo and they are hyping this match well between two old timers without it feeling like a nostalgia match. Heat on Corny was great. s
