Samu is, of course, Sabu. It looks like Dirty White Boy returning as a heel has been forgotten. A pretty weird collection of wrestlers. The post-match angle is a big one, as Pritchard handcuffs Dirty White Boy to the ring post so he and Miss Texas can tear and feather Dirty White Girl. Good stuff, and a bizarre match.

This is easily one of the most WAR-esque six-man matches ever held in the Memphis territory. Doug Gilbert was piledriven a couple of weeks before and is now working a Rick Steiner goofball gimmick. Sort of a perfunctory tag match, though the action is good when Prichard is in. Dread has a nice look and I remember him getting play in the Apter mags but I don't think his career went anywhere. Prichard gets handcuffs from Miss Texas and cuffs DWB to the ropes. Tojo Yamamoto comes out with syrup and a bag of feathers, and after approaching DWB, Kimberly tries to stop them and gets tarred and feathered herself.

This was a neat little match until the tarring and feathering got started, with just enough of Prichard and Anthony to excite the fans and good performances from Davis and Sabu in particular. Then it all went to pot. The tarring and feathering itself didn't bother me, but to do it to poor Kim? At least it was Jackie who committed the act, but still, after losing Dallas TV (which effectively killed the Texas end of the promotion, since the ESPN bouts were so watered down), you'd think Jarrett would think twice before allowing men to put their hands on women in a violent manner, even if they're just restraining her so a woman can do damage.

 

What saved this was beautiful selling on the parts of both Tony and Kim. Tony was the perfect outraged boyfriend, while Kim was too dazed and surprised to quite figure out what was going on. Dave put on the finishing touches by again pointing out the Texas crowd's inability to get the upper hand on the Tennesseeans without resorting to dirty tricks like this. What could have been simply exploitative turned into a surprisingly serious angle that should lead to one hell of a series of matches between Tony and Dr. Tom. All we need to do is keep the women in the corner and out of harm's way. (Like there's a chance of that, right?)
