The Headbangers & Al Snow all win the right to sign their own dream match. The Wolfman interrupts the celebration to
Tell Cornette that his dream is to finally win a match, and so he picks his dream opponent to be none other than

women filing criminal charges against each other. Morton himself, has taken possession of Smothers’ Tag Team belt and has
not returned it. Morton had since promised to sue SMW, and as a result has been fired. Gibson announces that he asked Morton
personally to come back, but refused, effectively ending the Rock & Roll Express as a team. Smothers and Gibson shake hands,
burying the hatchet between them.

Landell despite being the heel with Jim Cornette
as his manager, is seen by many as the hometown hero and is still cheered. Landell nearly puts HBK away cleanly, but
breaks his 3 count because he sees Cornette’s racquet in the ring from a previous [and unrelated] interference attempt.
The confusion allows Michaels to recover enough to get the pinfall on Landell with the superkick. Cornette is pissed
at Landell and the two argue in the ring. Cornette shoves Landell, and the rest of the Militia runs in. Brad Armstrong

dream match with Lee being Armstrong’s
Brad Armstrong v. Buddy Landell (Lumberjack match with all of the

attacks Cornette before Corny bails out of the ring.)
15. Int – Brad Armstrong
The Thugs v. Al Snow & Unabomb (Loser of the fall leaves SMW with Jim
Cornette as the referee. This was Al Snow’s
dream match. Cornette is great as an extremely biased referee doing all of the stuff you’d expect from a heel referee
with the slow counts for the babyfaces and lightning quick counts for the heels. In the end, Cornette is knocked
unconscious, and when the Thugs go for a cover on Al Snow, referee Mark Curtis runs in, grabs Cornette’s hand and
forces him to count to 3! Unabomb must leave Smoky Mountain Wrestling!)
