I just found a whole load of SMW TV on the Youtubes. I'm not sure it goes right to the end of the promotion yet, but it seems to be every show in order from the first one. It's much better than I thought it was going to be. Mr. Ron Wright is outstanding. The best thing so far, ring-wise, for me, is this match from episode 9. The Fultons vs. Joel Deaton and Billy Black. I had seen almost nothing of Black before, and he looks like absolute shit, but his in-ring work was fantastic. This match wouldn't look out of place on today's NXT, minus the cowboy hats and mullets. The vid below should start right where the match kicks off, if not, FF to 29:15.

Black and Deaton could really go during the early 90's. The time they spent in All-Japan paid dividends in the ring. Unfortunately, there was nowhere in the U.S. where they could make a decent buck. They had good matches for Pedicino and Cornette, but their look just wasn't right for the big two. Even in All-Japan, they had Kroffat and Furnas ahead of them in the pecking order of mid-card gaijin.
The moonsaults and other acrobatic moves Black pulled off really didn't fit his outlaw cowboy gimmick. It's hilarious listening to Bob Caudle trying to commentate on this match as he has no idea what's going on.
