From Why We Wrestle:
- JT Talent opened the festivities with a special Summer Of Hate preview edition of the "Talent Show". Before he could even get started Prince Apollo interrupted him informing fans that he had been left off of Summer Of Hate on July 30th and he could not let this slight to his royalty go unanswered. He said he would be in attendance at SOH and The Church will bow to The Prince.
Talent was taken aback but pressed forward and Apollo left. He announced that in addition to the 4 big matches already announced (Heavyweight title, Tag Team Title Tourney Final, Bullrope - Slave vs Leave Town, and Judas v Miller) he was here to reveal the remainder of the Summer Of Hate lineup. Video promos were shown of Anthony Henry preparing for the title match with vigorous training. Stryknyn preparing at The Gathering Of The Juggalos, Jacob Ashworth busting melons with the bullrope/cowbell saying it was going to be Nemesis' head and Nemesis saying Jacob was going to pour his champagne and shine his shoes after 7/30.
Talent said in addition to all of that we'd also see wrestling's only male gymnast Timmy Lou Retton take on "The Incredible Huck" Will Huckaby of The Sound & The Fury, Tag Team division action as The Lynch Mob (Matt and Joey Lynch) will face The Get Along Gang (CB Suave & Marco Polo w Gil Quest) and a match that has been brewing for weeks, also his guests on The Talent Show, "The Real" Slim J vs Kevin Blue.
Both men came out. Talent advised per management we knew this was coming based on previous actions. (Slim beat Blue in a contenders series bout on 6/11, Blue cost Slim his title shot against A Henry on 6/25, Slim stooged off Blue's use if a foreign object in a match against J Ashworth on 7/9, Blue beside himself later tried to return the favor in Slim vs P Apollo but it backfired.) As a result of all this bad blood and that we had to stop all this interference ....neither man could touch each other until 7/30 or the match was off. What followed was one of the most shocking verbal joust sessions in arena history. Things got personal and heated and they escalated quickly. Insults thrown included but were not limited to Blue claiming Slim was protected by the office because his pic was on the wall and he was a golden boy. Slim claiming Blue never showed up for training sessions to better himself and having one of the terrible attitudes that gives his generation a bad name. Blue accusing Slim of being a junkie on meth who lives in a trailer and a prime example of the old guard while Blue had a wife, kids, a mortgage and a bank account. Slim accusing Blue's wife of being a "ring rat" and questioning the paternity of his children and Blue responded by insulting Slim's deceased mother. JT Talent had to stop Slim from knocking Blue out and Blue slithered away. It was announced that both would be in singles competition tonight as Talent tried to calm down Slim.
