After a very long hiatus from Kayfabe Memories I'm back with the third post for Smoky Mountain Wrestling. I do deeply apologize as I've been getting my own Indy Promotion afloat and running a wrestling memorabilia shop, but I'm back and ready to get down to business. In this Edition of the SMW Report I will cover SMW's biggest event of all time, The Superbowl of Wrestling.

SMW's Superbowl of Wrestling took place on August 4, 1995 at the Civic Coliseum in Knoxville, TN. It had proven to be one of, if not the biggest drawing crowds in SMW history with some 5,000 fans in attendance for a gate of roughly $37,500. The card was packed with stars from all over the United States from SMW itself to the WWF. Several future WWF superstars were even involved on this big event. Below are all the results of SMW's version of the Superbowl.

In the opening bout Brian Amstrong (later renamed the Road Dogg by the WWF) got a victory over another future WWF Star at the time in D-Lo Brown. The match was fast paced and the two battled back & forth & with WWF scouts in attendance both men pulled out all the stops ending with the Desert Storm veteran reigning victorious in only 8:00.

In the next bout it was originally scheduled for The HeadBangers to meet the Steiner Brothers in a classic tag match but it seemed at the last minute the Steiners pulled out. The replacements, were none other than Chris Michaels & Flash Flanagan. Still a decent fought out match, the fans were disappointed that the Steiners no showed. The ending came when Mosh made the cover on Michaels for the win in 11:40.

From there USWA Tag Champs PG-13 (J.C. Ice & Wolfie D) scored a somewhat easy win over Fantastic's member Jackie Fulton & former NWA jobber from the late 80's, Curtis Thompson.

Following that, wrestling legend "Bullet" Bob Armstrong was set to meet The Punisher (now WWF's Bull Buchanon). Surprisingly, Bob did the quick job to the up & coming star without much complaint. This would only further the Armstrong/Cornette feud, however.
