LAST WEEK: The Beach Bullies (Alex Porteau & Shawn Summers) were about to lose to John Tatum and Rod Price when Summers got his team DQ’ed by spraying Price in the eyes with a Super Soaker. That’s the most 90s thing I’ve seen in a long time. If Summers was REALLY a good bully, that Super Soaker would have been filled with bleach.

Your host is David Webb. Chaz stops by to tell us he’ll be wrestling Steven Dane on the program. Once Chaz tells us he will give his all in that match, Webb runs down the rest of the card for today.
