Die Promotion war zwischen 1992 und 1995 in den Südstaaten der USA, speziell Kentucky und Tennessee, eine der erfolgreichen Old School Promotions ihrer Zeit. Besitzer von Smoky (nicht Smokey) Mountain Wrestling war Jim Cornette, der zuvor jahrelang als Manager in der NWA und WCW aktiv gewesen war und nun mit der Promotion zeigen wollte, dass er es besser konnte. Um den ärgsten Rivalen zu der Zeit, die ECW aus Pennsylvania und deren Booker und Intimfeind von Cornette, Paul Heyman, zu bezwingen, ging SMW eine Partnerschaft mit der WWF ein. Genau diese Partnerschaft bzw. Cornettes zunehmende Eingliederung in die WWF bedeuteten jedoch schließlich das Ende der Promotion, die für viele spätere Superstars eine erste große Station war.

S. soil and damn, i can say that Jim Cornette is a smart man to create such a unique events and a intense match to be enjoyed by all fans even he had a devious mind and devious character and don't forget that they had such a best talents like Heavenly Bodies, Rock N' Roll Express, Gangstas, Thrillseekers, Tracy Smothers, Bruise Bros. , and the late great Eddie Gilbert"

[10.0] "Great promotion led by one of the top three minds ever in wrestling Jim cornette, with a solid core of veteran talent who could still perform at a somewhat high level. The Heavenly Bodies, Rock n roll express, stud stable, dirty white boy w/ mr Ron wright, Dixie dynomite and Primetime Brian Lee just to name a few. With the ever smooth Bob Caudle and the Traditional Heenan heel type commentary from Dirty Dutch Mantell I think it was one of the most underrated duos to call the action. Like Siskel and Ebert two thumbs up!"

[10.0] "Smoky Mountain Operated in the peak of the Wrestling Industries spike in attendance during the early-mid 90's. However, they proved as a feeding ground for some of the best local shows and talents to showcase their abilities in this recession period. Thanks to Jim Cornette and staff for reviving old school wrestling."

[8.0] "I wish it were still running. This is the perfect distillation of Jim Cornette's vision of old school territorial rasslin'. Always great matches. They had Madison Square Garden-like crowds in tiny high school gyms in Kentucky and West Virginia. Proof that such a concept can succeed. It just needs the brilliant mind of Jim Cornette."
