So I was watching Schneider Comp #21 today, and there's a segment on it where Tracey Smothers basically causes an arena-wide riot at an IWA-MS show from 2002.
It's amazing. Smothers is just out of this world great. There's a match
with Bobby Eaton and somebody else going on and Smothers hits the scene
to jump Eaton. And all motherfucking hell breaks loose. Bunch of
wrestlers come down to try and pull Smothers and Eaton apart, so
Smothers starts laying into everybody. I don't even know who half the
guys are, but Smothers punches them in the throat, slaps them, kicks
them, punches them in the eye, the whole nine. It's just a masterclass
in drunken belligerence (I don't think he's drunk, but think drunk guy
trying to start fights with people and not listening to anybody trying
to talk him down -- that's basically Tracey here, only coherent). Adam
Gooch tries to settle him so Tracey punches him in the eyeball. He
offers Hero a handshake, then when Hero takes it Tracey clocks him.
Holds his hands up like he's calm and that's it done, then the first guy
that comes close gets knuckled in the eye. "Fuckin' motherfuckers, fuck
all of you." He's just walking around the building kicking over chairs
and tables and flipping people off, calling them 'motherfuckers' and
'douchebags' and threatening to kill people. Some meth headed bitch in
the crowd swings a bat or something at him and Tracey grabs it, and I
thought for sure he was going to crack her. Chick's boyfriend gets
involved and you've got wrestlers stepping between them, but you know
Tracey would maul him anyway. "You think this is fake? This ain't
fuckin' fake, I'll fuckin' kill all of you." He gets in the ring and
starts verbally abusing everybody while nobody will come within five
feet of him. "Bring that bitch back in here, I'll fuckin' kill her. Fuck
you, motherfucker. Fuck all y'all. Fuck you. Fuck everybody. You think
I'm fake? Get in the ring and I'll show you how fake I am, I'll tear
your fuckin' eye out." Some guy in the crowd whips his shirt off and has
the most amazing fat belly I've ever seen. Smothers -- "Get in the
ring, I'll fuckin' kill you." Dude stares at Smothers and PUTS HIS
CIGARETTE OUT ON HIS OWN ARM. I paused the DVD for like five minutes
while I laughed uncontrollably. Then Eaton hits the scene again and it
all kicks back off between him and Smothers. Ian Rotten gets on the mic
and calls Smothers a "fuckin' nut." There's some guy lying on the ground
and as Smothers is walking back to the ring he just stomps on his head.
People are wondering what the fuck is going on, standing around with a
look of sheer bewilderment. Eventually Ian and Smothers wind up in the
ring and THEY start fighting, then as Smothers is finally ready to leave
the scene Eaton shows up again and fucks him in the head with a chair.
And we're back at it again. People scatter, Eaton and Smothers punch
each other, other wrestlers get stomped on. Commentator -- "They're
comin' my way so I'm gettin' the fuck outta here." Smothers finally
leaves (he walks away flipping everybody off), then two minutes later he
comes back and punches someone else, then Eaton and him go at it AGAIN.
Seriously, Smothers is just indescribably awesome here. Wreaking
absolute havoc. Fucking tremendous segment. Everybody send Goodhelmet some dollars for this comp. The whole thing is worth it for this alone.
