Match 2: J.R. James (w/ Bobby Rogers) versus David Perry
Summary: Perry wins! Good hometown victory for Perry.
After the match, Rogers enters the ring but eats a clothesline from Perry. With Perry distracted by Rogers, James whips Perry with a bull rope. He then clotheslines and whips Perry with it again. When Perry wins a tug-o-war with him, he clotheslines James. A group of wrestlers arrive to restrain an angry Perry. Methinks redneck James may have taunted Perry with a naughty word.

CAPTAIN LOU’S CORNER: We revisit the 8/12 episode when Mr. Red allegedly obtained the Captain’s Corner. Of course, Albano stomped a mudhole in him for his ignorance.
Match 3: Super Ninja (w/ Mr. Red) versus Mad Man Pondo
Summary: Showcase match for Ninja.
After the match, Red mounts the second turnbuckle but misses a splash. Pondo stomps him, but Ninja saves his manager, beats up Pondo, and nails the referee. Heinous!
Abrams enters the ring and addresses Mr. Red. As Abrams suspends him for 30 days, Mr. Red attacks him. The referee separates them, but Ninja head-butts him. Albano joins the fray and removes Mr. Red’s suspenders. An enraged Abrams hammers Mr. Red until Ninja saves his manager for a second time.
After Ninja leaves Abrams laying, Albano rams him face-first into the apron and creams him with a banquet chair. The Ft. Lauderdale faithful chants “Lou,” but Frankie E and Lenny Duge tend to the fallen Abrams.

Summary: Not much of a match, but instead it was a chaotic melee.

Conclusion: Abrams needed to pull a rabbit out of his hat to overcome last week’s dreck, and the commotion during the main event qualifies. Perry’s win over a Confederate flag-waving redneck also lit a spark to the episode. Although I have no clue what’s in store for us next week, let’s pray that it’s more like this than what got schlepped upon us last week.
TV Rating: NONE
