[1995-03-18-SMW-TV] Jim Cornette, Tracy Smothers and The Undertaker

Cornette has signed a match for the Southern Boys and Bob Armstrong to team with a mystery partner and take on The Gangstas and D-Lo Brown at the Bluegrass Brawl, and Tracy is livid until Cornette reveals that the partner is The Undertaker! Taker and Paul Bearer send in a taped promo explaining things. I've always wanted to see Undertaker in SMW because I was curious how they'd reconcile the gimmick in this environment.

Paul Bearer said they normally wouldn't do Jim Cornette any favors, but when he explained the injustice that happened, they decided to help.

That was the first occurence of characterization that made no sense at all to me in SMW. I hadn't watched a classic Taker promo in litteraly ages, and wow, does it look corny as hell now. And totally out of place in SMW (we'll pretend Prince Kharis never happened).

I don't quite get how Cornette can sign a match for Tracy Smothers, just like that. Cornette name-drops the mystery partner: The Undertaker. Quite a coup for Cornette, though I don't know if it was worth the payoff. Undertaker is offended by the Gangstas burying people with a flag, and plans to show them what a real burial is like.


The "loser salutes the flag" stip is absolutely fucking abhorrent. For all the talk about how the Gangstas only represent themselves, SMW sure has gone out of its way to portray the entire Black community as heels and white southerners as babyfaces in recent weeks.
