Smokey Mountain Wrestling- The New Partnership
 
In 1991, Jim Cornette founded Smokey Mountain Wrestling. Southern style wrestling at it's best. By 1994, the company was starting to hit financial ruins, thanks to hiring some big superstars like Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, Terry and Dory Funk, and the Rock N' Roll Express. These superstars really helped the promotion from a popularity standpoint, but Cornette knew the company would not last long if he didn't get some financial backing. 1 young fan had some ideas that he hoped we shape the course of Smokey Mountain Wrestling.

13 year old pro wrestling prodigy, Mike Schaplowsky, had been a huge fan of pro wrestling since.. well.. the day he was born. Ask him about a wrestler, he could tell you his or her likes, dislikes, hometown, real name, well you get the point. But his savvy for the business was like no other. Cornette knew this young man had a future in the business, and decided to reach out to him in late June of 1994. By July of 1994, Cornette had turned the reigns of SMW over to Mike Schaplowsky. Now, Cornette wasn't going anywhere. No, you see, Schaplowsky and Cornette needed each other, and Cornette would stay in the company as a special advisor.

With that being said, the new SMW was born. Smokey Mountain Wrestling... with a 13 year old running the company?? Surely it would be doomed to fail.. right?

Hello, I'm Mike Schaplowsky, the 13 year old (remember this is 1994, I'm much much older than that now lol) prodigy you've all been hearing so much. My job is to keep SMW in the black while still putting on a quality product. How will this happen you ask? Well it won't be easy, and it may end up not being successful, but I'm going to give it the ol' college try. First and foremost, we need to take a look where we can make some cuts without sacrificing too much popularity.

First of all, we have a referee that is making $1,400 a show. Unacceptable! I will referee for free! A 13 year old referee you ask. Fathom the thought! Well I've been refereeing me and my friends backyard fed for years now, so I'm capable. I just saved this company $1,400 a show. I'm a genius!! But there will be more cuts, I promise you this. Stay tuned.

SMW News

Well, in his first day on the job as new Smokey Mountain Wrestling owner, the 13 year old prodigy has already made a splash. The list of SMW roster members that have been released include:

Mark Curtis
Candi Devine
Debbie Combs
Ron Wright
The Mongolian Stomper

We are told there is more to come.

Also, "The Prodigy" as he is now wishing to be called, has started an alliance called the Southeastern Wrestling Alliance. Joining the alliance is the United States Wrestling Association and Southern States Wrestling. "The Prodigy" put in a call to Eric Bischoff and Ted Turner to be the senior member, but were quickly rejected. The terms of the alliance are one that our "prodigy" didn't quite think through, in my opinion.


The biggest 2 terms are as follows: All members of the alliance can have their prestige and momentum affected by other member's fortunes. SMW is highly hoping for the USWA to continue their strong run. The killer of the alliance may be the following though, all members of the alliance will contribute their profits to a pot that is shared equally between members. Again, The Prodigy is hoping that the USWA will come to the rescue here. When asked about this new alliance, Jim Cornette only had this to say ""..... I.... trust him?" It seems Mr. Cornette is already having second thoughts.

In other news, SMW Summer Blast that was scheduled for later this month has been cancelled. "The Prodigy" has claimed that 3 weeks is not enough time to put together a quality show, keeping the tight budget in mind. The next big SMW show is scheduled to be in Week 2 in August.

I really hope you guys enjoy, I'm a little nervous about taking over a promotion that is so low on money.

Also, we'll hear from SMW Heavyweight Champion Jake "The Snake" Roberts as he prepares for a big title defense on an upcoming edition of SMW TV against an opponent yet to be named. All this and possibly more on SMW TV.


I will be running this show tomorrow, so if anybody wants to make any predictions, get them in now.

It's really sad to see some of the cuts you made. I feel like the Mongolian Stomper still has use getting young guys over and even Bret Hart said he was one of the greatest wrestlers from Canada. Ron Wright still has some use as a manager and I understand the rest of the cuts. Mark Curtis will be missed as I always remember him as the ref for most of the biggest matches for SMW.

You're probably right, I hated to cut Mark Curtis, but I can have my user character referee for free and save money. At this point, it's all about money. Of course, knowing the way I play this game, don't be surprised to see an "influx of cash" coming into the company thanks to an edit on my part. lol. $10,000 isn't a lot to work with when you have guys demanding $1,000-1,800 per appearance.

sportsfanmas 12-29-2018 02:33 PM

Thanks for your patience guys, ran into a snag with graphics. Photobucket let me down and I don't understand any of the other graphics sites well enough. First show will probably be up today, but without graphics.

I loved Tony Anthony's anti-Southern gimmick back then. It got those rednecks pissed.

Well Dunn vs. The Armstrong (Scott and Steve)

Guys, I sincerely apologize for not getting the first show up yet. I had some family come in unexpectedly for the holidays and stayed longer than expected.

I will have the first show up tomorrow, and that is a promise. Thanks for your patience

SMW TV
Monday, Week 1, July 1994
Jefferson County Fairgrounds- Jefferson City, TN (Southeast)
Show Attendance: 2,000
Show Announcers: Bob Caudle and Jim Cornette


Welcome to the first showing of SMW TV under the Mike "The Prodigy" Schaplowsky era! It is sure to be a good show, so let's get right to it.

Segment 1

The show started with The Gangstas (New Jack and Mustapha Saed) in the ring, demanding an SMW Tag Team Title shot. They were quickly interrupted by The Rock N' Roll Express, who wanted to know what the Gangstas had done to earn a shot. Not to be outdone, the Thrillseekers (Chris Jericho and Lance Storm) came out and said that if there was any tag team that deserved a shot, it was them, because they were a hot new tag team. The segment ended with all teams brawling and having to be broken apart by several other wrestlers. (65)

Segment 2

Our first match of the SMW era under "The Prodigy" was an SMW Beat The Champ Television Title match between the SMW TV Champ Tracy Smothers and former champ Kendo the Samurai with Daryl Van Horne. Smothers proved why he was fit to be the champ, as he dominated Kendo the Samurai in this match, getting the pin at the 5:18 mark with a Jaw Jacker to make defense #1 of the SMW Beat The Champ Television Title. (50)

Segment 3

We go backstage, where Scott Stud is doing his best to hit on Dirty White Girl. DWG clearly seems disinterested. What neither one of them realized is that Dirty White Boy was just around the corner, hearing everything that was going on. To say he was upset would be an understatement. (50)

Segment 4

In a tag team match, Well Dunn (Timothy Well and Steven Dunn) took on The Armstrongs (Scott and Steve). This was a decent, back and forth match between 2 veteran tag teams that had lots of tag experience. In the end, the brothers proved to be too much, as Steve Armstrong hit a Missile Dropkick to pin Dunn at the 11:57 mark. (52)

Segment 5

In the final match of the evening, Dirty White Boy, who had his own problems going on, took on Bull Pain. Dirty White Girl accompanied DWB to ringside, but both were clearly distracted. A solid match with great heat, but a clearly distracted DWB was off his game, as Bull Pain hit DWB with a Powerbomb to get the win at the 15:24 mark. (46)

Final Segment

Before the show could come to an end, SMW Champ Jake "The Snake" Roberts made his way to the ringside area, demanding that Bob Caudle interview him. He said that it was bull**** that a punk kid could take over the company that Jim Cornette had worked so hard to build. He said that having a little kid refereeing adult matches was an absolute disgrace and that if the kid got in his way, he wouldn't be above knocking "The Prodigy" out. He also said it was a disgrace that he didn't have an opponent for the title, that he was ready to defend the belt, but SMW had no worthy challengers. To end the segment, "The Snake" demanded to know what Cornette was going to do about it. The show ended with Roberts in Cornette's face. (72)

Final Show Rating: 55

The Prodigy Speaks

Well, not a bad show for my first attempt. Obviously having Jake Roberts end the show was the right decision, but man did the match between Bull Pain and DWB disappoint. We did increase popularity in 9 regions, but I am sure that our great fans in the Southeast expect better, and they'll get it, I hope. Between me and Mr. Cornette, we'll get those show ratings over 60. Count on it.

SMW News

-- Both Jake Roberts and Steve Skyfire were extremely late getting to the SMW TV tapings last night. New SMW owner Mike "The Prodigy" Schaplowsky didn't seem too concerned, giving both a slap on the wrist.

-- It's being said that Dirty White Boy just isn't connecting with anybody in the company right now, as he had no chemistry with either the Dirty White Girl or Bull Pain last night. New Jack was also in the camp that DWB was not cutting the mustard, going into "The Prodigy's" office and saying so.

-- SMW TV got a 0.10 rating last night. Despite "The Prodigy" saying that he thought the show wasn't very good, the fans thought otherwise, saying it was excellent, and complimenting the Prodigy for introducing 2 storylines into the company. Time will tell whether the storylines will work or not.

-- SMW TV ended their run on U.S. Syndication Small I last night. Before that happened though, SMW signed a new deal with SportSouth. The deal is for a year, with SMW TV to air on Tuesday afternoons. The minimum quality that SMW needs to maintain for their shows is a 38. Shouldn't be a problem at all. SMW has coverage in both the Southeast and Mid Atlantic.

News around Other Companies

-- Barry Horowitz became the WWF European Champion on RAW last night. Uh? ok. Apparently this is a new title for the WWF, as I sure don't remember WWF having the European title back then.

-- It is being said that Vince McMahon has lost faith in Bret "The Hitman" Hart to be the company leader, and looks to be going in a different direction soon.

sportsfanmas 01-04-2019 03:15 PM

This is going to be my weekly format, although I at some point hope to include graphics. The one thing I would like help with is to be able to border my segments. I've seen other people do it, but I have no idea how. Does anybody know what I'm talking about? I'm not sure if I'm explaining it right.
