The Syrian Assassin REGAINS World Title!
One half of the Savage Sheiks (the other member being Sheik Yerbutti) has done it again and claimed the top prize for Sly Smith (his other win came during last year's Fall cycle). For Sly, it is his sixth World Heavyweight title. We caught up with Sly after the match, who had this to say: "It's tough out here for a six-man specialist. I don't know if I would have been able to accomplish the big one again if not for all the extra six-man flows I had!" As we cut away, Sly signaled to everybody that he's "#1."
