History[edit]

Smoky Mountain Wrestling (1995)[edit]

Al Snow and Unabomb both wrestled for Jim Cornette's Knoxville, Tennessee-based Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1995 before they formed a tag team in SMW on the February 6, 1995 TV taping of SMW, which was dubbed The Dynamic Duo. They defeated Anthony Michaels and The Wolfman.[3] The same night, they earned a shot at the SMW Tag Team Champions Rock N' Roll Express (Robert Gibson and Ricky Morton). The champions retained their titles after getting disqualified[3] and this started a feud between Dynamic Duo and Rock N' Roll Express.

Al Snow and Unabomb received several shots at Gibson and Morton for the titles but usually got pinned or disqualified.[4][5][6] Finally, Al Snow and Unabomb defeated Rock N' Roll Express for the SMW Tag Team Championship in a "coal miner's glove match".[7][8][9] Al Snow and Unabomb had short-lived feuds with tag teams such as The Batten Twins (Bart & Brad),[10][11] The Dirty White Boy and Tracy Smothers,[12] Armstrong Brothers (Steve and Scott)[13][14] and Robert Gibson & Boo Bradley.[15][16]

Al Snow and Unabomb started to feud with Rock N' Roll Express again with this time, Snow and Unabomb as the champions. Snow and Unabomb had a series of title defenses against Rock N' Roll Express and they usually retained their titles after getting disqualified.[17][18][19] Finally the dynamic reign of Dynamic Duo ended when they were defeated by The Thugs (Dirty White Boy and Tracy Smothers).[8][9][20] They would still feud with Rock N' Roll Express and the two had a series of matches with Rock N' Roll Express winning.[21] The two teams would also wrestle in a "thunder cage match"[22] and a "street fight match".[23] After the street fight match, Dynamic Duo ended their long-time feud with Rock N' Roll Express.

Dynamic Duo would now focus on the SMW Tag Team Championship and they started to feud with the then-champions Thugs who defeated them for the titles earlier in the month.[8] Dynamic Duo challenged the Thugs twice for the titles but were unsuccessful in regaining the titles.[24][25] Thugs dropped the titles but Dynamic Duo would still feud with them so they could take their revenge but would eventually lose to Thugs.[26] Dynamic Duo earned a final shot at the SMW Tag Team Championship in a four corners elimination tag team match which involved themselves, the reigning champions Heavenly Bodies, The Thugs and The Headbangers (Mosh and Thrasher) but failed to win the titles.[27] Their rivalry with Thugs ended when they lost a "loser-of-the-fall leaves town match" to Thugs.[28] As a result of losing the fall, Unabomb was forced to leave SMW. He joined the World Wrestling Federation as Isaac Yankem, DDS,[2] while Snow stayed for another month, until leaving for the WWF, after losing a televised match to Brad Armstrong.
