Default ECW 96: Experience the Difference

The Path of Rage Begins

January 1996 saw the start of the Path of Rage, when Taz choked out FMW fighter Koji Nakagawa. Later in the Queens, New York debut show, the former WWF Superstar Mantaur made his ECW debut. As expected, the fans didn’t take to the WWF reject, so 911 came out and took out the trash with a Chokeslam. This raised the ire of Bill Alfonso, who was still claiming that the Chokeslam was banned. 911 was about to put his hands on Alfonso, until Taz stopped him. 911 tried to intimate Taz by dropping Mantaur with another Chokeslam, but Taz would not flinch, a first for ECW.

What followed next was an impressive string of victories (Either scheduled or unscheduled fights) for Taz. From Triple Crown winners like Mikey Whipwreck to Hart Dungeon Survivors like Chris Jericho to Lucha Libre legends like Rey Mystero Jr. to WrestleMania headliners like Bam Bam Bigelow, no one was save from the Path of Rage. At the heart of the Path of Rage was one man who refused to accept Taz’s challenge, one man, the only man, who Taz wanted to choke out. That man was Sabu.

All About Respect

There was one man who debuted at the beginning of the year, who took ECW by storm, Rob Van Dam. One of his earliest match ups was against Sabu. It was a hard fought match that ultimately had no winners. The crowd loved the match and Sabu was impressed by Van Dam’s ability to hang with him throughout the whole ordeal. He was so impressed, he offered his hand in respect to Van Dam. Rob showed his arrogance though, when he walked away from the handshake. This led to a Respect Match in May; the loser must shake the victors’ hand. It was another hard fought match that ended when Van Dam spiked Sabu on his neck via a Fishermen’s Buster from the top. Sabu was injured, but he was a man of his word, as he held out his hand towards Van Dam. Rob refused to shake Sabu’s hand again, stating that he was a piece of shit. Van Dam left the ring and just so happened to bump into Taz and Bill Alfonso in the aisle way. Alfonso and Van Dam shared some words, while Damage Control strapped Sabu to a stretcher. Taz silently watched on.

Family Feud

In the latter half of 1995, ECW became hosts to the dysfunctional Dudley clan. There was the very outspoken Sign Guy Dudley, potato chip eating Chubby Dudley, the Lucha loving, Spanish speaking Dance with Dudleys, the linguistic extraordinaire Buh Buh Ray Dudley, and the patriarch of the clan Big Dick Dudley. Big Dick injured his knee and missed the majority of 1996. It was during his leave when a new Dudley came to ECW, the abusive, intimidating, righteous D-Von Dudley. D-Von took over as leader of the clan and he maintains this position through beatings handed down to his brothers.

Raven: ECW World Heavyweight Champion

Raven started out the year on a bad note, as the love of his live, Beulah McGuillicutty, left him for his former childhood friend, Tommy Dreamer. Things would improve a few weeks later when he defeated The Sandman for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. He also had a new plaything by his side, Kimona Wanalaya. Raven immediately had a target placed on his back, as the Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, and the returning Shane Douglas were vying for his title. Raven had no other choice then to seek help and he did that when he had the returning Bruise Brothers (Ron and Don Harris) turn on Tommy Dreamer. He later welcomed “Prime Time” Brian Lee into his Nest. All was not good for Raven though, as once again, Kimona left Raven, this time for Beulah.

Meanwhile, Raven’s lackey, Stevie Richards has been embroiled over a legal dispute with Missy Hyatt, all over Missy making out with Richards early in the year.

Eliminators: ECW World Tag Team Champions

The Eliminators reign on top of the tag team scene began in February, after they defeated Cactus Jack and Mikey Whipwreck. Their first challengers were longtime rivals, the Pit Bulls. After the Eliminators were successful over the Mad Dogs of War, their next challengers stepped up - New Jack and Mustafa, the Gangstas. The Eliminators answered the challenge by sandwiching New Jack between two tables and dropped him with Total Elimination. They’ve meet twice since then – one time was in a six man tag where New Jack pinned Saturn and the second time was a title match, where the Eliminators defeated the Gangstas. They are signed to meet for a third time at Fight the Power.

The Franchise: ECW World Television Champion

The Franchise, Shane Douglas’ only goal when coming back to ECW was to recapture the ECW World Heavyweight title. He had his chance in March, only to lose that chance to the champion, Raven. Frustrated, Douglas got into a fight with then ECW World Television champion, 2 Cold Scorpio. A match ensued and the Franchise won the belt. Problem was that Douglas felt like the World Television title was beneath him. He has no respect for the title.

This is tidy and concise. It's ECW, and a time period no one on WF really ever does. I'll check this out when you get some shows up. This has potential, based off your backstory. You may be new to WF, but I can tell you're not new to writing.

----------------------------------------------------

ECW Hardcore TV #91 - June 4, 1996

The show opens with Joey Styles in the ring.



“Hello everyone and welcome to EXTREME Championship Wrestling! I'm Joey Styles, coming to you from the House of Hardcore – the ECW Arena in beautiful South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! And tonight, the action you are seeing is coming to you from Fight the Power! My guests at this time are “Dancing” Stevie Richards and the ECW World Heavyweight champion… Raven!”

“Come Out and Play” by the Offspring blares over the PA System as Raven emerges from behind the black curtain, with Stevie Richards trailing not far behind. Raven looks to be in a fouler mood than normal, as he stands to the right of Joey Styles, while Stevie stands to the left. Raven is glaring at Stevie. “Don’t you two look like the happy couple…” comments Joey Styles. Raven turns his head towards Joey, which frightens him. Richards takes the mic, as he is the one who requested this interview time.

“Raven, boss, two weeks ago you gave me a mission and that mission was to find the most disgusting, dirtiest, filthiest, ugliest, *BEEEEP* I’ve ever seen and give her to you. Well, I think I have found what you’re looking for. Without further ado, from the Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, Raven, I give to you Ms. Divine Brown!”

A sultry, ebony, beauty is led to the ring by Nova. Raven doesn’t look too happy, as Divine Brown enters the ring and jumps into Richards’ arms. “She’s good to go, trust me I know. She’ll let you do anything to her boss...”

“Richards, she hasn’t been with enough men. I don’t want her.” Is all Raven can say, as he leaves the ring.



The intro comes to a close and we go to Joey Styles standing in front of the ECW banner. Joey comments on how if Divine Brown, who is most famous for, uh, “being” with Hue Grant – hopefully Joey doesn’t get sued for that – If that’s not enough for Raven, then who is? Sure, Raven has been scorned recently by Beulah and Kimona, Joey gets it, but now he wants the lowest of the low. He’s tasked that clueless putz to find this woman. Well, all he can say is… Good luck Stevie!

Now on to tonight’s show. We have a packed show for tonight, as you will see a Six Man Elimination tag team match with Falls Counting Anywhere in the ECW Arena, as Raven’s Triangle of Terror, the Bruise Brothers and “Prime Time” Brian Lee goes against The Pit Bulls and Tommy Dreamer, and because of Richards’ big mouth, if either of the Pit Bulls or Tommy Dreamer survives the match, then they will face Raven for the ECW World Heavyweight title somewhere down the line. It’s also Shoot Fight 96, as the Orange and Black Attack, Taz will face a man trained in Muay Tai boxing and a survivor of the Hart Dungeon, Jason Helton. Speaking of Taz, he has been at the center of controversy recently, as he and Bill Alfonso have been rumored of giving Rob Van Dam inside information on a previous neck injury that Sabu suffered in 1994. If the rumors turn out to be true, then Taz is just as responsible for Sabu being sent to the hospital as Rob Van Dam is. Sabu is scheduled to return to the ring on June 22nd, for Hardcore Heaven 1996. He is signed for a rematch against Rob Van Dam and that is sure to be a heated contest.

******************************


“Epic” by Faith No More plays, as we cut to Lance Wright.

“I’m Lance Wright with the Extreme deal of the week; ECW Home Video presents the Hardcore Heaven History Package. Hardcore Heaven 94 saw the legendary Terry Funk battle Cactus Jack, while the Public Enemy found themselves under a sea of chairs, as the ECW Arena erupted. Mikey Whipwreck beats up the Sexiest Man in the World, as Sabu battles 2 Cold Scorpio for the first time in the ECW Arena. Plus, you’ll get Hardcore Heaven 95, where you’ll see the Gangstas first ever match up against the Public Enemy. The Sandman, with his Singapore cane, defends the ECW World Heavyweight title against Cactus Jack, whose hand is wrapped in Barbed Wire. Raven and Richards defend the ECW World Tag Team titles against Tommy Dreamer and Luna Vachon. And has it been a year already? The Franchise Shane Douglas’ infamous departure from ECW…”

******************************

1) Shoot Fight - Taz vs. Jason Helton:

We cut to the ring, as “War Machine” by KISS starts to play over the PA System and soon into it, the annoying whistle of Bill Alfonso is heard. He leads the way, as Team Taz comes marching to the ring, Taz marching in the middle of the pack. Jason Helton is already in the ring, as Bill Alfonso takes the mic, “I AM BILL ALFONSO!” Joel Gertner is handed back the mic and he makes the introduction. This match will be contested under Shoot Fight rules; You can only win via submission or knock out, no pin falls. The two start out with a simple lock up. Taz takes Helton down and gets off of Jason. He’s just showing Jason that he can take him down whenever he wants. Taz toys with Jason once again, but this time Jason answers back by firing off several elbow strikes to the back of Taz’s head. Taz looks like he doesn’t care, but it’s a bluff, as he begins to dump Jason with a T-Bone Tazplex, followed closely by an Overhead Belly to Belly Tazplex, which is then closely followed with a German Tazplex. Jason is not moving, so Taz decides to end it by applying the Tazmission. Referee John Finnegan calls for the bell seconds later.
Winner: Taz (Submission > Tazmission | 4:19)

Bill Alfonso takes the mic from Joel Gertner and he gives it to Taz. Taz paces around the ring, shaking his head. He has beaten and choked out everyone that the so called dirtsheets claimed would stop him. Bam Bam Bigelow was supposed to stop Taz - Taz choked his ass out in less than a month of being here and now he was gone. Next was Chris Jericho, the last survivor of Stu Hart’s infamous dungeon. Jericho couldn’t last more than three minutes with Taz. 911, please, that *BLEEP* couldn’t do *BLEEP* to Taz. The list continues to grow. No one has stepped up and challenged Taz. No one. “So who’s next? Who am I going to punk out and choke out next? How ‘bout Bret Hart? That pussy Shawn Michaels? Or how ‘bout that no good asshole Ric Flair? Hey nature boy, *BEEP* you. So who is it gonna be?” Taz pauses as he notices UFC Fighter “The Alaskan Polar Bear” Paul Varelans sitting in the front row. “Hey, look at what we got here, an Ultimate Fighter… I can guarantee that no one, not even this Ultimate Fighter can stop the path of rage…”

That comment gets to Paul Varelans, as he steps up out of his seat and stares at Taz. Lance Wright rushes over to get comments from Paul Varelans. “Hey big man, if you have something to say, then say it to my face…” Taz is calling out Paul Varelans! He hops the guardrail and several wrestlers rush to the ring to hold Varelans back. Taz mocks Varelans again, “Get that trash out of here! He doesn’t belong.” Varelans breaks through and the crowd pops as he has a standoff with Taz. Even more wrestlers, officials, and now security fill the ring and get between the two. “LET THEM GO!” rings throughout the Arena. Tod Gordon enters the ring and calls for the mic. He asks the ECW fans if they want to see the match. The response is thunderous. Gordon asks Paul Varelans if he wants a match against Taz. Varelans screams “Hell yeah…”, so Gordon then asks Taz if he wants the match. Bill Alfonso snatches the mic from Gordon.

“OF COURSE HE ACCEPTS! TAZ BACKS DOWN FROM NO MAN, ESPECIALLY NOT FROM AN ULTIMATE LOSER LIKE PAUL VARELANS! NO ONE CAN STOP THE PATH OF RAGE DADDY! PAUL VARELANS…BE READY TO BE CHOKED OUT, BECAUSE THAT’S ALL THAT GONNA HAPPEN WHEN YOU STEP INTO THE RING WITH MY MAN TAZ!”

Gordon snatches back the mic and makes it official, on June 22nd, Hardcore Heaven ’96, Taz will take on Paul Varelans! Joey can’t believe it. For the first time in wrestling history, The Orange and Black Attack will take on the Alaskan Polar Bear. It will happen at Hardcore Heaven 96 and only in ECW!

******************************


Joey Styles is still buzzing about the Paul Varelans/Taz situation. The contract signing was scheduled to happen in a few minutes of this taping. If we can’t show it to you on tonight’s show, we will show it next week. Joey touches on an interesting point, Taz has a previously injured neck stemming from an injury from over a year ago. You saw Taz react violently when Jason Helton struck the back of Taz’s head with elbows. The interesting part is that Paul Varelans won his first bout in UFC against Cal Worsham much the same way, via Knock Out from Polar Bear Elbow Strikes to the back of the head. Joey believes that if Varelans can land a similar elbow strike to Taz, he may win the fight. Conversely, if Taz can lock on the Kajahijime, the Tazmission, all will be over for Varelans. Either way, come June 22nd at Hardcore Heaven, we will either see the Alaskan Polar Bear be choked out or the Orange and Black Attack, the One Man Crime Spree stopped cold in its tracks….

******************************


Cut to a commercial Paul E. Dangerously does the voice over.

“He is, without question, the most death defying athlete in the history of professional wrestling. A homicidal, genocidal, suicidal human machine of destruction with no fears and no peers. He is the most unique sports entertainer to grace the squared circle, not just here in ECW, but anywhere on the face of planet Earth. He truly epitomizes the word Extreme and his name… is SABU! Buy the new SABU T-Shirt now!!!"

******************************


“Thunderkiss ‘65” by White Zombie begins playing in the background, which means that it’s almost time for the Six Man Elimination Tag Match. But first, Joey goes over some stuff. It was in April when “Prime Time” Brian Lee made his debut by helping Raven against Tommy Dreamer. This led to an altercation where Brian Lee placed a cinder block on Dreamer and hit it with a steel chair. Tommy Dreamer gave Brian Lee a taste of his own medicine a month later. ECW Fan Cam footage begins to play, as ECW held a show from the Briarcliffe Fieldhouse in Glenolden, Pennsylvania. Brian Lee throws Tommy Dreamer into a stop sign. Joey points out how this may be some sick retaliation for Dreamer hitting Raven with a stop sign earlier in the year. Our featured bout is about to begin. NO! THE FIGHT IS ON!

2) Six Man Tag Elimination Match – The Triangle of Terror vs. Tommy Dreamer & The Pit Bulls:

A quick cut to the ring and the match has already started, as Raven’s Triangle of Terror have jumped their opponents. Pit Bull #1 is posted into the steel ring post! His shoulder is still injured after the Eliminators attacked the Pit Bulls at the Massacre on Queens Boulevard! Tommy Dreamer has a chair thrown at him, while Pit Bull #2 has to go at it alone against both Bruise Brothers inside the ring. Brian Lee enters the ring and hits Pit Bull #2 from behind. He then helps the Bruise Brother to lift up Pit Bull #2 and they walk over to the ropes and toss him over, right into a waiting table! Pit Bull #1 rolls into the ring and Brian Lee covers him. 1……2……3!
Pit Bull #1 is eliminated. (Pinfall | 1:17)

The fight begins to spill into the crowd, as Brian Lee tosses Dreamer into the first five rows! Brian Lee proceeds to throw Dreamer into a vending machine. What won’t Brian Lee use to hurt Tommy Dreamer? He’s used a cinder block, tossed Dreamer into a stop sign and a truck, and just now he’s using a vending machine. All five men soon converge towards the Eagles Nest, right below Joey Styles. Tommy finds a way to fight back, as he knocks Brian Lee onto a table with a chair shot. He takes out one of the Bruise Brothers as well with two, hard chair shots. Dreamer climbs up to the Eagles Nest, right beside Joey Styles. He yells out “E-C-*BEEP*-W!” – Dreamer dives from the Eagles Nest and crashes through Brian Lee and a table! Dreamer somehow climbs back onto the Eagles Nest and he holds out his arms in a crucifix pose – WAIT – Raven ambushes Dreamer from behind and drops him with a DDT! Stevie Richards and The Blue Meanie begin to stack a table onto another table and Brian Lee now climbs up to the Eagles Nest and he grabs Tommy by the neck. CHOKESLAM FROM OFF THE EAGLES NEST, THROUGH TWO TABLES! OH MY GOD!!! An Extreme Replay of the Chokeslam from the Eagle Nest is shown, as we then come back to Raven watching the match from the Eagles Nest. The Bruise Brothers drag Pit Bull #2 back to the ring, as Brian Lee waits inside of it. Somehow, someway the fans are now helping Tommy Dreamer come back to the ring! Brian Lee and Pit Bull #2 slug it out inside the ring, while the Bruise Brothers wait for Dreamer. He nears the guardrail and one of the Bruise Brothers reaches for him – Dreamer slams a chair across his skull! The fans help Tommy Dreamer over the guardrail. The other Bruise Brothers comes at him and Dreamer rams the chair into his ribs! Dreamer hooks the head – DDT! Dreamer falls onto the fallen Bruise Brother. 1…...2……3!
One of the Bruise Brothers is eliminated. (Pinfall > DDT | 6:02)

Pit Bull #2 now picks up a plunger and he sticks it over Brian Lee’s face! That can’t be sanitary. He starts unloading on Brian Lee, but Prime Time fights back. He removes the plunger and clocks Pit Bull #2 with it. Dreamer comes from behind and hits Brian Lee low! He then spins him – DDT!
Pit Bull #2 tosses a table in the ring, and Dreamer sets it up. He places Brian Lee on it, while Pit Bull #2 starts to climb the turnbuckles. What is Tommy Dreamer doing? OH NO! Pit Bull #2 lifts Dreamer up – Super Bomb through Brian Lee and the table – NO! Brian Lee has been pulled off by the remaining Bruise Brother! The remaining Bruise Brother tackles Pit Bull #2 to the floor, leaving Brian Lee to make the cover. 1……2……3!
Tommy Dreamer is eliminated. (Pinfall > Super Bomb | 8:35)

Brian Lee grabs Pit Bull #2 and drags him back into the ring. He then holds up a chair to his head. The Bruise Brother comes in with a big boot, targeting the chair – Pit Bull #2 ducks and the Bruise Brother kicks the chair into Brian Lee’s face! Pit Bull #2 makes the cover. 1……2……3!
Brian Lee is eliminated. (Pinfall > Big Boot | 9:41)

Dreamer spins the shocked Bruise Brother around and spikes him with a DDT! Pit Bull #2 gets off of Brian Lee and makes the cover. 1…...2……3!
Survivor: Pit Bull #2 (Pinfall > DDT | 10:18)

Pit Bull #2 has his hand raised – Raven tackles him from behind! Richards and Meanie go after Tommy Dreamer, while Raven stomps down on Pit Bull 2. He grabs the mic. “The title match starts now…”

3) ECW World Heavyweight Title – Raven © vs. Pit Bull 2:

The bell rings, as Raven lifts up Pit Bull #2 and drops him with a piledriver. He hooks the leg. 1……2…..NO! Pit Bull #2 kicks out before three! Raven picks up the Mad Dog of War and drops him into the remnants of the table with a bulldog. He hooks the leg again. 1……2……NO! Pit Bull #2 kicks out! Raven shoves him into the corner and begins to lay into him with punches. THE PIT BULL IS FIRING UP! He slugs Raven twice and follows up by whipping him to the opposite corner. Pit Bull #2 charges into Raven with a spin wheel kick! Pit Bull #2 grabs a chair and heads to the top. He leaps – Raven catches him with a dropkick! Raven lifts Pit Bull #2 up and spikes him with a DDT. Raven doesn’t make the cover, as he instead stomps on the mat several times – he is loading up his boot! Raven stomps down on the head of Pit Bull #2 and he is knocked out cold. Raven hooks the legs. 1……2……3!
Winner: Raven (Pinfall > Loaded Boot Shot | 3:41)

******************************


We cut to Lance Wright. “Pit Bull #2 is my hero… I’m Lance Wright and this is Hype Central! ECW has begun a shuttle service, in order to bring you to the extreme action. And with just a few extra dollars, you too can receive the services of Divine Brown…What?”

"Guilty" by Gravity Kills begins to play.


Back to Lance. “Saturday night, June 22nd, Phildelphia, Pennsylvania… the tradition continues, Hardcore Heaven 96.”



Joey applauds Tommy Dreamer and especially Pit Bull #2 for their efforts, as they were basically coming into this match at a disadvantage because Pit Bull #1 had no business being in the match. He was just honoring his commitment, as he was signed to appear in this match prior to being injured by the Eliminators. Even with one man down and being thrown off of the Eagles Nest and falling 8 feet through two tables, Dreamer and Pit Bull #2 won the match. Then, not even after a minute after the match had ended, Raven would attack Pit Bull #2 and claim that the Worlds title match that was going to happen “down the line” was happening right then and there. Pit Bull #2 wouldn’t go down without a fight though, as it took a piledriver, a chair dropkicked into his face, a DDT, and Raven’s loaded boot to put Pit Bull #2 down.

*****


A quick cut to Brian Lee in the locker room.

“The Chokeslam was born in ECW. The Chokeslam died everywhere else. The Chokeslam has been resurrected by me… and it will now be known as the Prime Time Slam!”

*****


On next week’s program, you won’t see it on Monday Night Raw or Monday Nitro, the Lone Horsemen and Wrestling Only Certifiable Loose Cannon, Brian Pillman, will talk for the first time since his near fatal car accident back in April. Also, fresh off of his victory over the Human Highlight Reel Sabu, Rob Van Dam will be taking on ECW’s first and only Triple Crown winner and everyone’s favorite underdog Mikey Whipwreck. Plus, in a rematch from the Massacre on Queens Boulevard, D-Von and Buh Buh Ray Dudley will be taking on the Full Blooded Italians, the FBI, JT Smith and his… “cousin” Little Guido.

*****


Buh Buh Ray Dudley is trying to use the payphone, while Sign Guy and Dances with Dudleys keep watch.

“Hello? Big Dick… AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!”

D-Von comes running into the room and chases Buh Buh Ray off of the phone. D-Von then picks up and slams the phone real hard. DW apologies for making his half-brother angry.

*****


On top of Rob Van Dam versus Mikey, The Dudleys versus the FBI, and Brian Pillman, we will have more news about Hardcore Heaven ’96, including the contract signing of the huge Paul Varelans versus Taz match. Make sure to tune in next week for what will be an eventful night of extreme action that only ECW can bring you.

Default Re: ECW 96: Experience the Difference

As Szumi said this is very tidy and the back story is pretty great. The run down of what's happening at the time makes it easier for someone not educated on the time period (Such as myself) to know what is going on and immediately understand what is happening.

You're clearly very educated on the time period. The use of Jason Helton proved that to me since he is a guy that generally only Australian wrestling fans know. I believe he only made 2 appearances in ECW and you know about him so kudos for going with a time period you know about (Or have educated yourself on)

In terms of booking, it's realistic. You haven't booked it like a RAW or Smackdown which is what some people would do. You've booked it just like ECW would have done. The use of images and gifs really works well also because you haven't overdone it at all.

In closing, this is very good so far and I'll definitely be reading this in future.

Spoiler for Reading, PA Show Results:
ECW Live Event
Bodyslams Arena in Reading, PA
June 8, 1996


1) Buh Buh Ray & D-Von Dudley def. The Full Blooded Italians

2) Hack Meyers drew with Axl Rotten

3) Mikey Whipwreck def. El Puerto Ricano

4) Taz def. Devon Storm

5) Shane Douglas def. 2 Cold Scorpio to retain the ECW World Television Championship

6) Brian Lee def. Tommy Dreamer in a Falls Count Anywhere match

7) Raven def. The Sandman to retain the ECW World Heavyweight Championship

8) The Eliminators def. The Gangstas to retain the ECW World Tag Team Championships

ECW Hardcore TV #92 - June 11, 1996

JT Smith and Little Guido come to the ring, as Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” plays. Joey is conflicted, on one hand, he has to watch the insulting mockery of the FBI, and on the other hand, he gets to listen to Old Blue Eyes. JT Smith hugs a few fans and Little Guido puts a stop to that. He gives everyone the universal Italian hello, while JT demands that they turn up the music. The music stops, which angers JT.

“Hey, hey, hey, turn that music back on or I’ll have Guido come kick your ass!” JT holds back the feisty Little Guido, as the people in the back don’t heed JT’s warnings. That’s fine with JT though, as he decides to start serenading his cousin, “Fly me to the moon! Let me swing among those stars! Let me see what spring is like… on Jupiter and Mars! Da da da…da da…” He doesn’t even now the words!


“Highway to Hell” by ACDC hits, as the always entertaining Dudley clan comes out to the ring. Buh Buh Ray Dudley is out first, followed by D-Von Dudley and Sign Guy Dudley, who is holding a sign that reads “WHAT IS YOUR NAME!” Joel Gertner starts the introductions. “Standing to my right, weighing in at… whatever the hell he wants to… D-VON DUDLEY!” D-Von intimates everyone, from his own family, to referees and even Joel Gertner. The fans begin to chant “WHAT’S YOUR NAME!” and Buh Buh Ray takes the mic from Gertner. He wants JT to come closer…

“FLY ME TO THE MO MO MO MOON!”

Buh Buh is proud of himself, while JT takes back the mic. D-Von rips it out of his hands and begins to speak “There are three rules you should never break. Rule number one, thou shalt not steal…” Well, lip syncing is hardly what I’d call stealing… “Number two, thou shalt not kill…” They did kill Frank Sinatra’s songs… GUILTY! GUILTY! “And number three, thus shalt not *BEEP* with the Dudleys!”

BUH BUH RAY TAKES OUT THE FBI WITH A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!

1) The Full Blooded Italians vs. The Dudleys:

JT rolls to the floor and Sign Guy decides to stomp down on him. Buh Buh Ray picks up Little Guido and throws him onto JT Smith! Buh Buh Ray is now going to the top and the FBI scatter. Little Guido slides into the ring and locks up with the big Dudley; Buh Buh Ray shoves Guido down and he is quick to tag out to his cousin, JT Smith. It looks like they’re going to lock up – No, JT lands a left jab. Buh Buh holds his jaw and yells out “OWE, THAT HURT!” JT doesn’t know what to do and Buh Buh Ray decks him real good. JT rolls to the floor and regroups with his cousin. Buh Buh Ray is mocking the FBI by dancing a little jig. D-Von slaps his back, making him the legal man. JT rolls back into the ring and D-Von goes on the attack. He pounds JT down, only to then scoop him up and slam JT back down to the canvas. D-Von now climbs to the middle turnbuckle – he slips and crashes into the ring! What just happened? Is JT Smith’s clumsiness contagious? Buh Buh Ray enters the ring and JT intercepts him with a dropkick to the left knee. Buh Buh Ray crawls to the corner and it looks like he’s hurt. JT doesn’t seem to care, as he begins to target the injured knee.

D-Von comes in and clears the ring. He pounds on Little Guido in the corner. D-Von is all business, as he picks him up and drops Guido with a slingshot gourdbuster. D-Von with the lateral press; 1……2……NO! JT Smith breaks the count. He begins to unload on D-Von and now he helps up his cousin. JT orders his cousin to pick up D-Von and hold him in place. JT spits in D-Von’s face and he follows that with a stiff slap – CRACK! Buh Buh Ray has gotten back up on his feet and he cracks a chair over JT Smith’s back! Guido releases D-Von and he eats a chair shot! Buh Buh Ray grabs onto the top rope, as his left knee is still hurt. D-Von gets up and looks around the ring. He then gets into Buh Buh Ray’s face and shoves him down! D-Von picks up the chair and decides to knock out the referee! A barely conscious John “Pee Wee” Moore calls for the bell.
Winners: The FBI (Disqualification | 6:21)

D-Von has snapped! He’s beating the holly hell out of JT Smith with a steel chair! Buh Buh Ray steps in and grabs the chair. D-Von does not look happy and he is chewing out his half-brother. Dances with Dudley rolls into the ring and tries to break up his two brothers. D-Von grabs the chair and smacks it upside DW’s head! Buh Buh Ray grabs the chair and now he is yelling at D-Von! D-Von kicks him low and takes back the chair – CRACK! Buh Buh Ray staggers back, but he is still on his feet. CRACK! He’s not standing now! Sign Guy Dudley enters the ring and D-Von caves in his skull with a chair shot.

D-Von raises the chair into the air and he’s the last Dudley left standing…“Highway to Hell” by ACDC begins to play and he’s back! The patriarchal Dudley is back! Big Dick Dudley comes lumbering down to the ring and D-Von has already left to the back. Did he not see Big Dick Dudley coming to the ring when he left to the back or is he running scared of his older half-brother?

******************************


We come back from commercial, and Joey Styles is standing in front of the ECW banner. We’re just moments away from seeing Rob Van Dam in action against the Triple Crown winner Mikey Whipwreck, but first some words from Paul E.

*****

The Psycho Yuppie, Paul Heyman makes a rare appearance. He does so to give his thoughts about what happened at A Matter of Respect. The camera closes in on his face. Paul looks horrible. He hasn’t slept well since the incident. Sabu hasn’t slept well too. He’s been in training - Training to come back and destroy Rob Van Dam. The minute Van Dam made it personal by targeting Sabu’s neck, he shot to number one on his hit list. Doing what Van Dam did would be like Malcolm X defecating in the Grand Wizards head dress. Like WCW entering Philly and having a lousy show - Wait, that did happen. Anyway, if you think Sabu was vicious before, wait until Hardcore Heaven.

“Rob Van Dam, get ready to experience… SABU!”

*****

Back to Joey Styles and Joey thinks it’s best to explain the rumors of Taz and Bill Alfonso giving Rob Van Dam inside information that lead to Sabu going to the hospital. It was during the month of November of 94 when Chris Benoit dumped Sabu on his neck. It was injured, but that was kept a secret, a secret only three men knew at the time, Sabu, Paul E., and Taz. Taz told Bill Alfonso about it and Alfonso relayed that information to Rob Van Dam. It was at A Matter of Respect, when Sabu met Van Dam. Van Dam had a plan and he executed it to perfection, as he didn’t focus on the lower back or the legs or the arms. No, he focused solely on the neck and what resulted was Sabu having to go to the hospital for the first time since that faithful night in 1994. Well, now Sabu is out of the hospital, and on June 22nd, Hardcore Heaven, he’s looking for Rob Van Dam.

A quick cut, as Mikey Whipwreck is coming to the ring, as Joey talks about how Mikey had to have his knee drained of fluids just four days ago, but he still insisted on competing tonight. Rob Van Dam comes out next, to Pantera’s “Walk”. Joey points out the irony of Rob Van Dam coming out to a song about respect, given the amount of disrespect Van Dam has shown to Sabu.


Why is Brian Pillman coming out here now?

Pillman demands the mic. Mikey doesn’t take too kindly to Pillman interrupting his match, but the Loose Cannon of Professional Wrestling couldn’t care less. He calls Mikey a little piece of *BLEEP* and he dares him to hit a cripple. Will he do it? Will Mikey be the one to shut up the Loose Cannon? Mikey goes to the floor, but so does Van Dam. He turns Mikey around and begins to mock him. CRACK! Pillman stands up and breaks his crutch over Mikey’s back! Van Dam picks up a chair and starts swinging away. He finally stops, only so he can then place Mikey on the ring apron, place the chair on top of him, then roll back into the ring and leap over the ropes, dropping a leg over the chair, thus crushing Mikey Whipwreck.

2) Rob Van Dam vs. Mikey Whipwreck:

Van Dam pulls a barely conscious Mikey back into the ring, as the bell finally rings. He stands him up the best he can and tosses him the chair. Before Mikey can react, Van Dam kicks the chair into his face! Van Dam stands over the now unconscious Mikey, turns around, and lands a standing Moonsault. Van Dam hooks the legs; 1……2……3.
Winner: Rob Van Dam (Pinfall > Standing Moonsault | 1:44)

Joey Styles says that he’s going to the ring right now to get an interview with Brian Pillman. An Extreme Replay covers enough time for Joey to get to ringside. Joey begins to speak, when Pillman informs him to shut up, and the goes for all of the pieces of *BLEEP* in the building too. He is Brian *BLEEP* Pillman and he has something to say. He heard all of those Sabu chants when he came to the ring, which is why he is proud of Rob Van Dam for doing what needed to be done, putting Sabu in the hospital. Pillman has been in ECW for over three months and in that time, the only person that has impressed him was Rob Van Dam. Pillman thinks that Van Dam is someone everyone should look up too. Not Sabu, not Shane Douglas, and not some drunkard like the Sandman. The fans start to chant for Sabu, which pisses Pillman off. He gives them a warning; shut up or else he is leaving. They continue to chant.

Van Dam pats Pillman on his shoulder. He then asks Pillman if he wants to get the hell out of here. Pillman does, so the two leave Joey Styles hanging.

******************************

We come back with Joey Styles and minutes before the show, 2 Cold Scorpio had to be rushed to the hospital with a 106 temperature. His opponent was going to be the Franchise, who defeated Scorpio for the ECW World Television championship last month. The kicker is that the Franchise doesn’t care for the title. He thinks it’s beneath him.

Quick cut, as The Franchise Shane Douglas comes to the ring, dragging along the title. He tosses it into the ring like trash and grabs the mic. The Franchise badmouths 2 Cold Scorpio, claiming that his sudden trip to the hospital was BS. The truth is that he fears the Franchise!

“There’s one man, a rookie, who has impressed me lately, so since I am in a giving mood… Hey El Puerto Ricano, tonight’s your lucky night… If you want a shot at this piece of *BEEP*… then come on down and take it!”

3) ECW World Television Title – Shane Douglas © vs. El Puerto Ricano:

The Extreme Rookie, El Puerto Ricano, comes out to the ring. Joel Gertner makes the introductions and Ricano starts taking off his shirt – Douglas hammers him from behind! He locks on a waist lock, pops the hips, and drops him with a Belly to Belly Suplex. Douglas hooks the leg for the easy three.
Winner: Shane Douglas (Pinfall > Belly to Belly Suplex | 0:21)

Douglas rolls to his feet. The ref grabs the title, but Douglas kicks it out of his hands. “I’m looking for a workout tonight, so send them all down to this ring. I’ll beat them one by one…”

Another quick cut, as Douglas drops Don E Allen with the Belly to Belly Suplex. He places a finger on Don E and gets the easy victory. The ref picks up the title and Douglas kicks it out of his hands again.

Quick cut – Douglas kicks Devon Storm low! He picks him up and pops the hips – Belly to Belly Suplex! He once again places a finger on top of Storm and gets another easy victory. Same thing happens, as the ref picks up the title and Douglas kicks it out of his hands. Douglas wants a real challenge this time, so he calls out Mikey Whipwreck. Mikey slowly hobbles to the ring.

One more quick cut - Douglas ducks under a clothesline attempt and comes back by clipping Mikey’s right knee. Douglas kicks at Mikey’s injured knee repeatedly. He then locks on the Texas Cloverleaf and Mikey taps out quickly.

Some wrestlers have come out to help Douglas’ victims to the back. One of them is Chris Jericho, who Douglas starts to mock over the mic. He challenges Jericho to prove that Stu Hart and the rest of the Hart Family weren’t a bunch of *BEEP*. Jericho is pissed off, as he rolls into the ring.

4) ECW World Television Title – Shane Douglas © vs. Chris Jericho:

Douglas ambushes Jericho coming in and he drops him with a Belly to Belly Suplex! Douglas doesn’t make the cover, as he then instead spots Mikey being helped to his feet. Douglas sticks his head out between the ropes and mocks Mikey. Mikey has had enough and he slaps the Franchise across the face. Douglas falls back, right into a roll up attempt by Jericho! 1……2……NO! Another quick cut, as the fight has spilled to the floor - Jericho hangs Douglas out to dry on the guardrail. Jericho reenters the ring, leaps over the ropes, and crashes onto the guardrail!!

Douglas slowly makes his way back to the ring, when he spots Mikey again. He tries to get into his face and referee Jim Molineaux gets in his way – Douglas synchs in the waist lock and he pops the hips – Belly to Belly Suplex on the floor! OH MY GOD! Douglas rolls into the ring, while a group of wrestlers rush to the referee’s aid. Mikey shoves past the riff raff and grabs a chair. Douglas doesn’t see Mikey hobble into the ring and when he does – CRACK! Mikey, as best he can, hits the Franchise with the chair. Douglas rolls to the floor and gets popped by another chair shot, this time from Don E. Allen. Douglas backs up, right into a shot from El Puerto Ricano! The Franchise’s ego is finally catching up to him – Mikey leaps over the ropes and takes out the Franchise with a plancha! The referee has lost all semblance of control, so he has no other choice but to call for the bell.
Winner: Shane Douglas (Disqualification | 4:07)

Douglas starts to back pedal to the locker room, while Chris Jericho finally recovers. He realizes what just happened, so he picks up Mikey Whipwreck and gets into his face. Jericho is beside himself – He kicks at Mikey’s knee! Jericho is held back by the other wrestlers and it looks like he regrets what he just did. It was done in the heat of the moment, and it’s all thanks to The Franchise!

******************************

Cut to Lance Wright standing in front of the EW banner.

“I’m Lance Wright and this is Hype Central! The Fight of Ultimate Proportions has been signed for Hardcore Heaven 96, as Paul Varelans takes on Taz!”

“Sad But True” by Metallica begins to play.


The show comes back from the break and here’s footage from the contract signing. Paul Varelans sits on one end of the table, while Taz sits on the other end. Joey Styles stands between them.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the press, the contract has been signed and on Saturday June 22nd, at the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Paul Varelans of Ultimate Fighting will be taking on Taz of Extreme Championship Wrestling! Now, Mr. Varelans, seeing how you’re coming into ECW, your words first…”

Paul Varelans talks about how he came to Philly to watch him some ECW Extreme action, when Taz started to talk trash about how he could easily beat Varelans. Paul disagrees. Taz is the next one to talk. He says that the only reason he is taking this match is because he *points to the heavens* won’t accept his challenge. Taz gets up and gets in Varelans’ face. He would like to shake his hand because Varelans is man enough to step up to Taz.

Varelans: “May the best man win…”

Taz: “I plan to…”

“Misirlou” by Dick Dale begins to play and you know what that means.

*****

We cut to the Dudley clan, minus D-Von, standing in the locker room.

“Today is a good day, because Big Dick had a CH CH CH CH…”

Big Dick growls and hits Buh Buh Ray on the back.

“Big Dick has returned and he is in a good mood!”

Big Dick growls, as we pan in for a close up.

*****

The camera shows the ECW World Television Title on the floor. We then pan up to the Franchise.

“I may not care for this title, but that doesn’t change the facts that I am the Franchise – I will not, I cannot just lie down and hand over this piece of garbage.” The Franchise has proven time and time again that he is a cut above the rest in that locker room – he is the better athlete. “This belt is beneath me, but being the type of guy that I am, I will do my best to raise the prestige of this worthless thing and make it the only thing people talk about when they think of ECW. I’ll take on anyone that thinks they can beat me – go ahead and try it, just know that once you fly to close to the sun and come crashing back down to reality – Just know that you’ll be back at the bottom and I will continue being at the top.” Douglas picks up the belt and looks at it. He then throws it down and leaves. The camera pans down to the belt.

*****

Now we go to JT Smith, who isstill trying to sing some Frank Sinatra.

"When the moon hits your eye, like a big pizza pie, that's amore"

*****

Divine Brown walks down the hallway, when Stevie Richards runs up to her with a fistful of cash. He gives it to Ms. Brown and she throws it back in his face.

*****

Cut to Bill Alfonso

“THAT WAS CRAP… LET’S DO IT AGAIN!”

*****

Divine Brown talks about coming to ECW, when Stevie Richards interrupts her again and gives her some money. Divine Brown throws the money back in his face and slaps Richards.

*****

Bill Alfonso is now in a hot tub with two lovely ladies.

“Fonzie, let’s go to your boat…”

“I SAID TO NEVER CALL ME THAT!”

*****

Back to JT Smith.

"When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's amore"

*****

Back to the Dudleys.

“D-Von, you better watch you BA BA BA BA…”

Big Dick growls and hits Buh Buh Ray on the back.

“Your time is UP UP UP UP…”

Big Dick growls and hits Buh Buh Ray on the back again.

“He’s going to kick your butt!”

*****

Great, JT Smith is still singing.

JT: "Hearts will play… da da da…. do do..”

Little Guido: “You forgot the words again?”

*****

Now it’s to Rob Van Dam and Brian Pillman. Pillman mocks Paul E., “You will experience…SABU!” Van Dam has only one thing on his mind, so he asks Pillman, why should he be afraid of Sabu?

Rob Van Dam: “I mean, who was the one that went to the hospital?”

Pillman: “Sabu…”

Van Dam: “And how many times did Sabu send me to the hospital?”

Pillman: “Zero…”

Van Dam: “Then should Sabu be the one afraid of me? I am, after all, the one people pay to see. I’m the one responsible for all these sold out shows. Who can be better than Rob – Van – Dam?”

Pillman: “No one…”

*****

Missy Hyatt sits on The Sandman’s lap.

Missy: “I love this time of the year… I can go down to the beach, take off all my clothes….

Sandman: “And kick someone’s butt!”

Missy: “Mamma loves violence!”

*****

Back to Rob Van Dam and Brian Pillman.

Pillman: “I have something to say to the *BEEEEEEP* Ted Turner and his *BEEP* of a wife…”

Someone off camera tells Van Dam to do something, so he wheels Pillman off of the set.

*****

Raven sits alongside a wall, while his Triangle of Terror stand before him.

“When one falls, I feel their pain. When they all fall, I feel their pain. I have done everything I can do to make sure Tommy Dreamer feels the pain I’ve felt for all my live. I’ve been surrounded by simpletons, delusional men with flights of fancy, the love of my life, and a silicon filled stripper… and yet they all have one thing in common, they’ve abandoned me. There comes a time when we have to stand on the precipice of a major decision… a time were one must figure out if they will rise above the oppressions of live or fall into a pit of nothingness, never to be seen again. It is time for you to make that decision.”

Brian Lee: “Raven, you have my soul, so I have your back…”

Raven: “Quote the Raven Nevermore.”

Default Re: ECW 96: Experience the Difference

Although I'm not too familiar with this time period of ECW, I must reiterate what others have said and say that I really like just the look and feel of your shows. I like the GIFs with the match-ups on them, that's certainly something I don't think I've seen before. I will try my best to keep up with this as much as I can, good luck!

ECW Hardcore TV #93 - June 18, 1996

“King Nothing” by Metallica begins to play, as a video hyping up Hardcore Heaven 96 is shown

Wish I may, wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold, dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased


(Scenes from the Paul Varelans/Taz confrontation from Fight the Power are shown.)

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?


(Next up is the debut of Brian Lee, as he saved Raven from a beating from Tommy Dreamer. What follows next are a few clips of this violent rivalry, which includes Brian Lee smashing a cinder block with a chair, while it was placed on Dreamer’s groin, Dreamer doing the same to Brian Lee, and Brian Lee tossing Dreamer into a Stop Sign.)

Hot and cold, bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Are you satisfied?
Wish I might, wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased


(The Dudley Family drama plays next, as Big Dick Dudley made his return to ECW and D-Von was sent running.)

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?


( Next is clips from last week’s spectacle from the Franchise; how he focused on Mikey Whipwreck’s injured knee, egged on Chris Jericho, dropped Jim Molineaux with the Belly to Belly Suplex, got into a fight with Mikey, and finishing up with Jericho kicking at Mikey’s injured knee.)

I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight
I want that star, I want it now
I want it all and I don't care how

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish, you may regret it
Careful what you wish, you just might get

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name


(The final set of clips focused on Rob Van Dam walking out on a handshake from Sabu, Van Dam spiking Sabu on his neck with the Fishermen’s Buster from the top, Sabu offering his hand again to Van Dam and Van Dam saying he doesn’t respect Sabu and thinks he is garbage.)

Where's your crown, King Nothing?


The intro wraps up and now we go to Joey Styles standing in front of the ECW banner.

“Welcome to Extreme Championship Wrestling, I’m Joey Styles and we’re counting down the days until this Saturday, Hardcore Heaven 1996. Here is your lineup so far – in the main event, Rob Van Dam will be facing Sabu in an Extreme Deathmatch; you can only win by pin fall from anywhere in the Arena or by submission, no DQ, no count out, there must be a winner. In a Weapons Match up, “The Innovator of Violence” Tommy Dreamer will be taking on “Prime Time” Brian Lee; you supply the weapons and they will use them, lord have mercy on all of us. For the ECW World Television championship, the Franchise was scheduled to face former champion 2 Cold Scorpio, but Scorpio came up short in Readings, Pennsylvania and again in Jim Thorpe, so that match has been change. Now the Franchise will defend the ECW World Television title against the man many think deserves another shot, Chris Jericho. Scorpio will still see action, as he faces off against everybody’s favorite underdog, Mikey Whipwreck. In their last chance to grab the titles, the Gangstas will meet the Eliminators one more time for the ECW World Tag Team Titles. We will find out just who is in charge of the Dudley family, D-Von or Big Dick Dudley, and in a fight of Ultimate Proportions, Paul Varelans of Ultimate Fighting will be squaring off with Taz of Extreme Championship Wrestling. It’s sure to be an epic night and you can only see this type of action at Hardcore Heaven 1996!”

And on a more personal note, Joey Styles would have loved to say his goodbye to Brian Pillman, who has just signed a contract for the World Wrestling Federation, but apparently, wrestling’s Loose Cannon will still be using ECW as his own personal forum to say whatever he wants.

“To Brian Pillman, my new neighbor in Stamford, all I can say is… bring it.”

******************************

Joey Styles does a commercial hyping up the Plymouth Meeting show this Friday. You will see, in a return match, Pit Bull #2 against Saturn of the Eliminators. The last time these two met, no one could imagine the carnage that would ensue. Cut to Saturn. “Lulu temple, 21st, Pit Bull… it’s your time to bleed…”

Cut back to Styles – In tag team action, you will see the team of The Sandman and Commissioner Tod Gordon take on Taz and Bill Alfonso. Cut to the Sandman and Missy Hyatt.

Sandman: “I’m gonna cane your ass…”

Missy: “I love violence!”

Back to Styles – He can just feel it; something big is going down in that match. Also this Friday night, it’s been two years in the making, in a rematch from Heat Wave 1994, the Franchise Shane Douglas defends the ECW World TV championship against Sabu. It all goes down this Friday night at the Lulu Temple in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania.

******************************

We are back with Joey Styles and one of the matches signed for Hardcore Heaven pits “The Innovator of Violence” Tommy Dreamer against “Prime Time” Brian Lee in a Weapons Match. Recently, at an event in Readings, Pennsylvania, which you will see momentarily via ECW Fan Cam, these two collided in a Falls Count Anywhere Match up. This is just one of the many reasons why the Weapons Match was signed.

Cut to the Fan Cam action, as the fight has just begun and already the ring can’t contain this action! Brian Lee uses the guardrail as a weapon, not once, but twice. Tommy Dreamer is dumped over the guardrail.

Quick cut, as Tommy is handed a cookie sheet and he connects on Brian Lee’s skull! Dreamer now uses the Arena as a weapon, as he throws Brian Lee into a wall. Dreamer is handed a motocross helmet and he puts it on, gets a running start, and rams into Brian Lee!

Another cut and now they’re outside the building and Brian Lee tosses Dreamer into a wall. He then drags Dreamer to his feet and throws him into the streets! Thank god that the fans are blocking traffic.

One more cut, as Dreamer makes the cover and one of the Bruise Brothers just broke the count! He holds a chair near Dreamer’s head and the other Bruise Brother kicks the chair into Dreamer’s skull!

The final cut happens, as the Bruise Brothers drag Dreamer into an alleyway and stop near a dumpster. Brian Lee stands on top of the dumpster and the Bruise Brothers hand him Dreamer. Brian Lee picks Dreamer up by the throat and drives him into the dumpster with a Prime Time Slam! Brian Lee places a hand on Dreamer; 1……2……3! The camera pans over and finds Raven watching from the fire escape!

******************************

“Epic” by Faith No More plays, as we cut to Lance Wright.

“I’m Lance Wright with the Extreme deal of the week; ECW Home Video presents the Hardcore Heaven History Package. Hardcore Heaven 94 saw the legendary Terry Funk battle Cactus Jack, while the Public Enemy found themselves under a sea of chairs, as the ECW Arena erupted. Mikey Whipwreck beats up the Sexiest Man in the World, as Sabu battles 2 Cold Scorpio for the first time in the ECW Arena. Plus, you’ll get Hardcore Heaven 95, where you’ll see the Gangstas first ever match up against the Public Enemy. The Sandman, with his Singapore cane, defends the ECW World Heavyweight title against Cactus Jack, whose hand is wrapped in Barbed Wire. Raven and Richards defend the ECW World Tag Team titles against Tommy Dreamer and Luna Vachon. And has it been a year already? The Franchise Shane Douglas’ infamous departure from ECW…”

******************************

Stevie Richards and the Blue Meanie



I’m sorry, Lord Stevie Regal and the Earl of Eating, Sir Meanie, come to the ring. They’ve been the Fabulous Ones, then they were the American Males, so what the heck, they can be the Blue Meanie Bloods too. Cut to Joey Styles - While the Blue Meanie Bloods were having fun, they had to get down to business, as Lord Stevie had his barristers, lawyers for our American viewers, write up some papers that pertained to the sexual assault case against Missy Hyatt. He also had a match scheduled against the Sandman. Here are the highlights…

Cut back to the ring, as the Sandman and Missy Hyatt are now in the ring. Stevie has the mic.

“Lord Stevie Regal would like to address one peasant in particular, the valet of your intoxicated hero up here… the woman with breast augmentation surgery… who violated and molested royalty in Lord Stevie Regal back in New York. Tonight at Fight the Power, Lord Stevie Regal is announcing, you trollop are hereby served.”

Lord Stevie shoves the papers in between her breasts. He turns to Sir Meanie and chuckles. The Sandman thinks he knows a better way of settling this issue, as he offers Lord Stevie Regal a brewsky. Stevie takes the can of beer and opens it. He takes a sip of it and doesn’t look pleased. He gives some to Meanie and the Earl of Eating has to spit it out due to the taste. Big mistake on his part, as he spits the beer into the Sandman’s face. Crack! The Sandman cracks Stevie with his Singapore cane!

1) The Sandman vs. Stevie Richards:

Stevie rolls to the ring apron and stands up. The Sandman attempts to suplex Stevie back into the ring, but Meanie stops him. Stevie hooks the head and drops down, snapping the Sandman’s neck across the top rope. Stevie orders Meanie to go up high. He slowly climbs and when he reaches his destination, he flips backwards, looking for a Moonsault – He crashes into the mat! Stevie goes on the attack and the Sandman decks him with a hard right. Stevie falls into the ropes and the Sandman sends him up and over them, to the floor. Stevie can barely recover, when Missy begins to cane him! Well if this sexual assault lawsuit doesn’t pan out, Stevie can file one for assault. Stevie is doing his best to cover his head – Sandman leaps over the ropes and lands on Stevie! He rolls Stevie back into the ring and then decides to take a little smoke break. Missy gives him a light and after a few puffs, the Sandman gives her the cigarette. Stevie catches the Sandman with a knee as he is coming in. He follows up by lifting up the Sandman and dropping him back down with a vertical suplex. Stevie calls for the Meanie to go up high again. This time he connects with a leg drop and now Stevie begins to mock Shawn Michaels, as he stands in the far corner and begins to tune up the band – Stevie Kick – No, Sandman ducks under – Stevie Kick to the knee!

Stevie grabs the right leg, “Woo! Now it is time to go to school!” Stevie is mocking Ric Flair now, as he locks in the Figure Four Leg Lock. The Sandman screams in pain and Missy hands him his cane. The Sandman smacks Stevie, but the hold is still locked on. He hits him again and again and again, but Stevie will not break the hold. Meanie comes in and the Sandman smacks him with the cane. The Sandman tries to fight off both members of Ravens Nest, but that doesn’t last long, as Meanie mounts the Sandman and starts unloading on him. Missy with the cane now and she hits Sir Meanie on the forehead! Missy hits Stevie and forces the break. Both men are up and Stevie goes for the Stevie Kick – NO! Sandman caught him with the cane! Missy opens up a beer and hands it to her man. Stevie Kick out of nowhere! Stevie is going for the Figure Four again, but the Sandman says otherwise, as he rolls Stevie up; 1……2……3!
Winner: The Sandman(Pinfall > Small Package | 6:22)

It’s Raven!

Raven slides into the ring and clips the injured knee. He then slaps on his own Figure Four. He’s trying to cripple the Sandman! Raven is trying to cripple the Sandman. Sandman screams in pain, as he desperately tries to reach for his cane. Raven grabs it instead and starts to cane the Sandman, all the while his injured knee is being torn to shreds by the Figure Four Leg Lock. Raven releases the hold and stands up. He holds out his arms in a crucifix pose, as we fade out.

******************************

Back with Joey Styles – One of the matches that was just signed for Hardcore Heaven 96 will pit the Gangstas against the ECW World Tag Team Champions the Eliminators. The teams have met several times throughout this month and the outcome is always the same, Eliminators win. At Hardcore Heaven, this Saturday night, the Gangstas will have one last shot at the Eliminators. The main reason behind this rematch stems from what happened at Fight the Power. Here now are some highlights from that match.

2) ECW World Tag Team Titles – The Eliminators vs. The Gangstas:

The Gangstas make their way to the ring, as the show cuts to the ring. New Jack carries a trashcan full of goodies and he tosses it in the ring. He then walks up to ring announcer Joel Gertner and takes the mic away from him.

“Eliminators, get your asses out here and let’s do this…”

New Jack is cut off, as someone hits him in the back of the head. It’s Saturn! The Eliminators have come from the crowd and they ambushed the Gangstas! Kronus picks up the trashcan and hits Mustafa over the head. New Jack ducks a right from Saturn and quickly grabs whatever is near him, which is a cookie sheet. Kronus hits New Jack with the trashcan and Saturn picks up the cookie sheet and busts open New Jack. Mustafa surprises Kronus with a dropkick, but before he can even stand, Saturn smashes the cookie sheet over his skull. Kronus scoops and slams Mustafa on the trashcan. Saturn pursues New Jack on the floor and continues to target the open wound on his forehead. New Jack pulls out a chair from the first row and starts fighting back. He swings at Saturn’s hip and back. New Jack swings once more at the back, when Kronus comes along and posts him into the steel. Saturn grabs two chairs, hands one to Kronus and they begin taking New Jack apart. Mustafa comes along and Kronus cracks his skull with the chair. Saturn rolls New Jack back in the ring and then he proceeds to go to the top. Saturn dives off of the top turnbuckle and New Jack grabs a cookie sheet – Saturn crashes head first into it! New Jack rolls Saturn onto his back and places his arm on top of him; 1……2……No! Saturn barely kicks out before the three count. New Jack gets up first and he retrieves a chain. New Jack wraps it around his fist – he knocks out Saturn with a right hook! Saturn is busted open now! New Jack begins to whip Saturn the chain.

A quick cut leads us back to the floor. Saturn tries to fight with Mustafa and New Jack joins in. Kronus slowly rolls into the ring. He gets to his feet and notices the fight on the floor. Kronus hits the ropes and begins to do handsprings - HURRICANE KRONUS! OH MY GOD! Kronus has just taken both Gangsta out! Mustafa reenters the ring and Kronus follows. Mustafa pulls himself up in the near corner – Kronus goes to the opposite corner and charges, as he attempts a handspring back elbow – Mustafa grabs a frying pan and he hits Kronus in the back of the head! Saturn slides a table into the ring and Mustafa begins to set it up. Saturn picks up New Jack and punches at his open wound. New Jack is sent crashing into the guardrail and now Saturn gets on the ring apron – He gets a running start and leaps – New Jack moves and Saturn crashes into the front row! Mustafa hops the guardrail and catches Saturn with a few left jabs.

Another cut, as New Jack and Kronus are dueling chairs. New Jack comes out on top, as Kronus falls onto the table. New Jack begins to climb to the top, chair in hand, and when he reaches his destination, he dives straight towards Kronus, driving the chair into Kronus’ chest and crashing through a table! New Jack rolls to the floor, clutching his right arm. Mustafa enters the ring and quickly makes the cover; 1……2……NO! The ref is pulled out of the ring at the last second by – Bill Alfonso? What’s he doing out here? Mustafa is distracted by this, giving Saturn enough time to revive his partner. The Eliminators get into position – TOTAL ELIMINATION! Saturn sweeps low and Kronus sweeps high! Saturn makes the lateral press and the referee slides back into the ring; 1……2……3!
Winners: The Eliminators (Pinfall > Total Elimination | 9:07 Shown)

******************************

Cut to Lance Wright standing in front of the ECW Banner.

“I’m Lance Wright and this is Hype Central! And now is the time to come and experience the difference at Hardcore Heaven 96…”

Goodie Mob’s “Cell Therapy” begins to play.


Raven sits down beside a tree. “Richards…why have you made me return to the twisted anguish of the playground of my youth?” Stevie Richards tries to explain himself, only to have Raven interrupt him. First Richards brought back Beulah into his life, Raven’s one true love. She left him for Tommy Dreamer. Then there was Kimona. Raven didn’t care for her, but he still felt the pain when she still left him for Beulah. Raven has ordered Richards to find to dirtiest, filthiest *BEEEEP* and bring her to Raven. He brought him Divine Brown, a woman who performed carnal knowledge on Hue Grant on Sunset Boulevard, but even still, she doesn’t meet Raven’s specifications. She’s not dirty enough for Raven.

“But boss, I think I’ve done it right this time.” Richards and Raven walkover to the playground and finds the Blue Meanie laying across the bridge, naked, with only blue cream smeared over his face and belly and a Meanie Doll blocking his… delicates.

Meanie: “Raven… Mr. Champion, welcome to my playground. Want you slide down my pole? – Ron Jeremy, The Vacuum Cleaner Salesman, 1978.”

Raven: “Richards, what in the hell is this?”

Richards: “This is it… Boss, I give to you Bluedust! He can be the valet you present to society…”

Raven looks disgusted, as Bluedust makes a simple request; he has herd that it is almost Raven’s birthday, so Bluedust wants to sing him “Happy Birthday”, just like Marylyn Monroe did for JFK. “But irst, let me give you a bit of salvation… for the sins of the father will be visited upon by the son… Look at the splotches on my belly welly… if you weeelll!”

Bluedust has a taste of the blue cream that covers his grotesque body. Raven says that he doesn’t want Bluedust because he isn’t feminine enough. Raven leaves, “I told you it wouldn’t work Meanie.” Richards dips his finger into the blue cream on Bluedust’s belly, then tastes it. It tastes good. Richards leaves…

Bluedust: “*breaths in* Bluedust *kiss*”

“Misirlou” by Dick Dale begins to play..

*****

D-von slams Sign Guy Dudley’s head into the wall over and over again, “IT’S MY FAMILY! IT’S MY FAMILY! IT’S MY FAMILY! IT’S MY FAMILY!”

*****

Cut to the Gangstas outside the ECW Arena.

New Jack: “Eliminators, I give ya guys props, ya’ll left us lying in a pool of our own blood. Ya’ll left us lookin’ at the ceiling. I got my ass kicked. We got our asses kicked…”

*****

Cut to Bill Alfonso, Taz, and the {Eliminators.

Alfonso: “GANGSTAS, YOU DON’T DESERVE TO HOLD THESE TITLES! YOU ARE TRASH! THE ELIMINATORS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD! YOU ARE NOT! THE ELIMINATORS ARE BETTER THAN YOU! YOU CAN NEVER BEAT THEM! YOU CAN NEVER HOLD THESE BELTS!”

Saturn: “Gangsters, you want another shot at us? That’s fine with us, just know that it’ll be your last…”

*****

Cut back to the Gangstas.

New Jack: “And when we come this time, we are going to kick your ass son. When we come this time, you better pack a lunch because the Gangstas aren’t to be played with.”

*****

Cut back to the Eliminators.

Saturn “Blood has been spelt, scars have been formed, but it doesn’t matter now, because we’re going to end this war.”

*****

Cut back to D-Von and Sign Guy - “Whose Family is it?” Sign Guy holds up a sign that reads “Big Dick”. D-Von snaps and repeatedly slams Sign Guy into the wall. “Whose Family is it?” Sign Guy holds up a sign that reads “D-Von”.

D-Von: “Testify!”

*****

Cut to Tommy Dreamer.

“Brian Lee, Hardcore Heaven, Weapons Match… I’M GOING TO TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL!”

*****

Cut to Stevie Richards and Bluedust at the park.

Bluedust: “Spray me with your big hose – Bluedust, 1996.”

Richards starts spraying Meanie with a hose, wiping off all the blue cream.

Bluedust: “I’m a Maniac, Maniac on the floor – Chris Farley, Valley Boys.”

Richards drops the hose and Meanie picks it up and sprays him.

Richards: “Meanie, you got me all wet…”

Meanie: “Bluedust strikes again…”

*****

Cut to Paul Varelans.

“Taz, let’s get ready to rock and roll…”

*****

Cut to Taz and Bill Alfonso.

Taz: “Varelans, I’m going to shove that fat head of yours up your fat ass…”

Alfonso: “AND IT’LL PROBABLY FIT!”

*****

Cut to Raven.

“Sandman, I’m going to show the whole world that pain that is inside you…”

*****

Cut to the Sandman.

“Pain? Pain? *hits head with cane* I feel no pain!”

ECW Hardcore TV #94 - June 25, 1996

We start with Joey Styles in the ring.


“Hello everyone and welcome to EXTREME Championship Wrestling!” Joey pauses for the obligatory ECW chant. “I'm Joey Styles, at the ECW Arena in beautiful, rustic South Philadelphia, along with hundreds of fans, from all over the country and all over the world that have converged to the corner of Swanson and Richter for Hardcore Heaven 1996! At this time, because I have no choice, I’m going to be introducing…”

The lights are turned off, as the crowd is restless. “What the hell…get off of me!” screams Joey Styles. The lights are turned back on and Stevie Richards, wearing a black trench coat, is using Joey to help him get back to his feet. The clueless putz tripped during the blackout! Stevie gets to his feet and picks up a black hat. Joey reluctantly finishes his sentence, “From Death Valley…The Underfaker… and his companion…” Joey sighs, “...Bluedust…and his, her, his director…Patricia”

“Ride of the Valkyries” begins to play, as Divine Brown comes to the ring with a cigar in her mouth. The Blue Meanie, sorry I mean Bluedust follows her to the ring. Bluedust is wearing a white body suit, covered in blue paint. His face is also covered by the blue paint and he is wearing a blond wig. Bluedust helps Divine, opps, I mean Patricia into the ring and they, along with Richards, I swear I'll get it right soon,the Underfaker, surround an obviously depressed Joey Styles. Joey is startled by the Underfaker and he accidentally knocks off his hat. “STOP THE MUSIC ALREADY! You know, if I wanted to watch the circus, I’d stay home in Stamford!” screams a frustrated Joey Styles. Joey warns Richards that he better have some earth shattering news, or else he’s leaving. Joey also points out how Bluedust looks more like Dusty Rhodes than his own son, Dustin.

Richards, in a deep voice, begins, “Joey Styles… the creatures of the night want to know…” His hat falls off again and Richards decides to ignore it, “…The creatures of the night need to know why I and my masculine friend, Bluedust are doing out here. We are out here tonight to announce that my man, Raven, the ECW World Heavyweight Champion…” Bluedust starts crawling around the ring, making it real hard for Richards and Joey Styles to stay in character. “…will be bringing out the girl the Underfaker has found to be the most disgusting, the dirtiest…” Bluedust tries to dry hump Joey’s leg, “…slimiest woman to show to society.” Richards tries his hardest to roll back his eyes. Bluedust drops to his knees in fear, “Have no fear Bluedust, I will not hurt you.”

It looks like Richards has said his peace, but instead of leaving, Bluedust grabs the mic from Joey. “Mr. Joey Styles… Raven said that I wasn’t feminine enough, so I’m out here to show to you how feminine I can be…” Bluedust drops to his knees and Joey freaks out. He tries to leave the ring, only to have the Underfaker grab him by the neck. Joey swats Richards’ hand away, throws down the mic, and storms off to the back.


The intro wraps up and now we go to Joey Styles standing in front of the ECW banner. Joel Gertner can be heard in the background, doing his ring announcing duties. On tonight’s show, The Franchise defends the ECW World TV title against Chris Jericho, and Raven will defend the ECW World Heavyweight Title against an opponent of the fans choosing. You see, before Hardcore Heaven 96 even started, we gave the fans a chance to play booker, as they voted on the person who would be facing Raven for his belt. The votes are still being counted, but Joey Styles will let everyone know the verdict once it happens… what the hell is Joel Gertner doing?

Cut to the ring, as Joel Gertner hams it up, “Let’s get ready to ru… Let’s get ready to ru… Let’s get ready to ru…”

CRACK!!!

The Sandman has come out to the ring and he has knocked out Joel Gertner with his cane! The fans chant “ONE MORE TIME”, so Sandman hits him again… and again. The Sandman picks up the mic and yells at Missy Hyatt to bring out Bob Artese. The fans chant “WELCOME BACK”, as Missy brings out Mr. Artese. The Sandman gives Artese two choices, he can be like Joel and receive an ass kicking or he can be the ring announcer that ECW deserves, but first…

“Missy, get’em!”

Missy starts making out with Bob Artese and the fans start chanting “HE’S HARDCORE”. Bob falls down, as Joey welcomes him back to ECW… and yes, he is hardcore.

******************************

“California Love” by 2Pac plays, as Joey Styles does a voice over for a commercial.

“ECW Home Video proudly presents the Heat Wave History package.

******************************

1) ECW World TV Title - Shane Douglas vs. Chris Jericho:

We come back, as “Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple plays. The Franchise comes to the ring first, with a smirk on his face. He drags the belt and tosses it in the ring. Chris Jericho comes out next, as Joey points out that if Jericho does capture the title, this will be the first singles title he’s won on American soil.

Jericho manages to frustrate the Franchise in the opening seconds, to the point Douglas rolls to the floor and kicks the guardrail in frustration. Douglas responds by rolling back into the ring and getting into Jericho’s face. Douglas proceeds to slap him across the face! Jericho laughs it off and fires back with a slap of his own! The two trade slaps, until Jericho ends up ducking a slap and maneuvers into a backslide pin attempt; 1……2......No! Douglas shakes off this early pin attempt, but he soon is rolled up again, which of course sets him off. Douglas channels his frustration into knocking Jericho to the floor. From there, he waits for the opportune moment and when it comes, Douglas vaults over the ropes and lands on Jericho! Douglas rams Jericho into the ring post for good measure. Jericho holds himself up with aide from the guardrail, as Douglas stays on top of him with shots to the back. Jericho lands a jab to the gut and that’s enough to stop the Franchise in his tracks. Jericho then hooks Douglas and drapes him over the guardrail, all so he can go to the ring apron and come back down onto the Franchise!

The move sends Douglas stumbling into the first row, while Jericho recovers on the opposite side of the guardrail. He begins to pull the guardrail towards the ring, slides back in the ring, and climbs to the top, just so he can then dive from the ring and glide over the guardrail, landing on the Franchise! Both are slow to get to their feet and even before they do, they begin to exchange blows. The fight eventually enters the aisle way, as Douglas slaps on a side headlock and begins to punch him in the head. Jericho fights back with jabs to the back and ends up lifting the Franchise off of his feet and placing him back on the guardrail. Jericho goes up to the ring apron again, as Douglas hops off the guardrail. Jericho looks back, before leaping onto the middle rope and attempting an Asi Moonsault. Jericho hits the concrete floor hard, barely landing on the Franchise.

Douglas slowly crawls back into the ring, just as Jericho begins to stir. The Franchise regains control of the match and decides now is the time to mock Jericho, as he drops him with a standing dropkick, followed, of course, by Douglas yelling “COME ON BABY!”. Douglas begins to work over Jericho’s right leg, because if he takes the only advantage Jericho has, then he has the match all but won. Douglas feels the need to drop Jericho with another dropkick, but that’s not the end of the Franchise mockery, as he begins to set Jericho up on the top turnbuckle. He’s mocking Mikey Whipwreck now! The Franchise is attempting a Frankenmikey, but Jericho ends up fighting back and he counters with a top rope sit out Powerbomb! The ref gets to the count of five when Jericho begins get back to a standing base. He then climbs up to the top. Douglas tries knocking him down, but Jericho ends up knocking the Franchise back, momentarily.

Jericho positions himself and lands a Picture Perfect Missile Dropkick. He makes the cover; 1......2……NO! The Franchise barely kicks out in time! “COME ON BABY!” Jericho gets a running start and he goes for the Lion Sault – Douglas lifts up his knees and Jericho lands on them! Douglas quickly scoops Jericho up and pops the hips and drops him with the Belly to Belly Suplex! 1……2......3! NO! Somehow, someway, Jericho gets a shoulder up before the three count. Douglas doesn’t skip a beat and it looks like he’s going for a Figure 4 Leg Lock. Jericho reaches up and pulls Douglas down into a small package, but Douglas easily escapes. Irish whip, reversal and Jericho fires back with a spin kick the sends Douglas to the ring apron. Jericho leaps to the second rope and dropkicks Douglas to the floor, sending him into the guardrail. Jericho follows up with a simple plancha, but there’s no water in the pool, once again. Douglas rolls in the ring and he is feeling the effects of this grueling match up. Jericho crawls onto the ring apron and he reenters the ring. Douglas strikes and he pops the hips once more – Jericho slips out and he rolls the Franchise up! 1……2……3!
Winner: Chris Jericho (Pinfall > Roll Up | 12:09)

HE DID IT! JERICHO PINNED THE FRANCHISE! JERICHO IS A CHAMPION!

Douglas rolls to the floor and stays there, in shock. Jericho is handed the belt and the Franchise is seething mad. He enters the ring and snatches back the belt. He stares down at it for what seemed like an eternity, before handing off the belt to Jericho. Douglas then exits the ring and heads to the back.

******************************

Joey Styles is here for an important reminder, on July 13th, ECW returns to South Philly and the ECW Arena as we kick start the Heat Wave 96 tour.

*****

We cut to a commercial featuring hype man Lance Wright.

“We interrupt this commercial break for a more civilized commercial. As you can tell by the very nature of our program, ECW is governed by a Conservative, Right Wing, politically correct establishment. Now when we are not hanging out in our corporate duds, we like to slip into something a little more comfortable… Say, for example, the EC F’N W T-Shirt. Buy now!”

******************************

Back with Joey Styles and he knows that Chris Jericho is destined for great things and he’ll probably capture more gold elsewhere, but his first will always be the ECW World TV title. Congratulations Chris Jericho. Back to business – We are just minutes away from finding out just who Raven will be facing, but first, here are some highlights from Hardcore Heaven 96.

2) Buh Buh Ray Dudley & Big Dick Dudley vs. The FBI:

Cut to the ring, as JT Smith tries to help Buh Buh Ray Dudley with his line, “My name is…” Buh Buh Ray looks confused, “My name is…” Buh Buh Ray places the mic close to his mouth, “My name is Buh Buh Ray Dudley!” He did it! He finally did it! Buh Buh Ray leaps for joy, while Big Dick stoic expression scares JT. JT picks up the mic, “Now since there’s four of you and just two of us… I’ve decided to reach out and call in a favor to my uncle…” Uncle? Who can be JT Smith’s uncle? We get our answer, as well as a blast from the past, as Wildfire” Tommy Rich comes to the ring. Joey is shocked to see Tommy Rich, but how can he be Italian? I thought he was from Atlanta. Tommy whispers something to Bob Artese, “From…Little Atlanta in the Italian district of Georgia…” Little Atlanta?!? You’ve got to be kidding me – “He is the Big Don of the FBI, Tommy Rich!”

Cut to the beginning of the match, as Big Dick absolutely destroys the Full Blooded Italians. He nearly decapitates JT Smith with a clothesline. Little Guido tries to do anything to stop Big Dick and he gets a clubbing forearm for his trouble. The Big Don knows that he has to do something, so he picks up a chair and knocks out Sign Guy Dudley. Dances with Dudley is the next to be creamed by Tommy Rich and this raises the ire of Big Dick. The big man stands face to face with the Big Don and Rich swings the chair - he breaks it over Big Dick’s head! It has no effect what so ever! Big Dick grabs Rich by the throat and Rich screams for help. JT Smith cracks a chair over Big Dick’s back. Big Dick turns around and stares at a frightened JT Smith. JT looks around for an escape route and when he spots it, the Italian Stallion books it to the back. Big Dick gives chase.

Another cut – Buh Buh Ray is fighting a losing battle against Tommy Rich and Little Guido and there’s no one that can help him, as Sign Guy and DW are still knocked out and Big Dick is in the back searching for JT Smith – Wait, D-Von Dudley hops the guardrail, picks up a chair and enters the ring. This can’t be good for Buh Buh Ray Dudley – What? D-Von hits Rich with the chair, then he hits Guido. The FBI scatter to the floor, while D-Von grabs the mic, “Rule number three states thou shalt not *BEEP* with the Dudleys!” Buh Buh Ray gets to his feet, “It is now time to testify! This is my family, not that Big Dick. I make all the decisions, I sign all the contracts. I control you!” Buh Buh Ray shakes his head and grabs the mic, “D-Von, you are an ass…” D-Von cracks Buh Buh Ray’s skull with the chair! He exits the ring and Guido cautiously makes the cover; 1……2……3.
Winner: The FBI (Pinfall | 2:18 Shown)

“Highway to Hell” hits and here comes Big Dick Dudley! Just like the last time, D-Von hops the rails. Big Dick storms to the ring, surveys the carnage done by his half-brother and starts to give chase. Cut to outside the Arena – D-Von gets into a car and it leaves, just as Big Dick catches up. Big Dick growls in anger.

Cut back to Joey Styles and D-Von wasn’t kidding around that he has full control over who Buh Buh Ray Dudley fights in an ECW ring, as he has signed his half-brother up for a match at Heat Wave 96, July 13th, ECW Arena in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – against Taz!

******************************

“Come Out and Play” by the Offspring blares over the PA System. Raven emerges from behind the black curtain, with Stevie Richards and Nova trailing not far behind. Raven looks to be annoyed by Nova and Stevie’s actions, so he sits in the corner, while Stevie grabs the mic. He listened to what Raven ordered him to do and he did it! He first tried with Divine Brown, but Raven said that she hadn’t slept with enough men yet. Next he tried with Bluedust, but Raven said he wasn’t feminine enough. But now he thinks he has got it right. “Raven, I give to you the dirtiest, the sleaziest, the *BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP* in the world. I bring to you my exe – FRANCINE!!!”

Quick cut to Joey Styles – the votes have been counted and it is a tie between the Sandman and Pit Bull #2 – GO BACK TO THE RING!

Cut back to the ring, as the Beast Master herself, Francine storms out and slaps Richards across the face. Pit Bull #2 holds back Francine – Raven blindsides him! Stevie Kick to the jaw! Raven spikes the Pit Bull with a DDT!.

3) ECW World Heavyweight Title: Raven © vs. Pit Bull #2 vs. The Sandman:

Pit Bull #2 is back up! He pounds his chest and Raven isn’t impressed, as he gets in Pit Bull #2’s face. Pit Bull #2 steam rolls through Raven and this causes Raven to take a powder on the floor. Pit Bull #2 follows Raven and slams him, head first, into the guardrail. He dumps Raven up and over the guardrail. Stevie Richards gets the Pit Bull’s attention, briefly, but it is still enough time for Raven to distance himself from Pit Bull #2. The Pit Bull hops the rails and pursues Raven. Raven doesn’t get far, as Pit Bull #2 starts beating him with a steel chair. Raven’s face starts to resemble a crime scene, as blood covers it.

Raven continues to run from Pit Bull #2 and this brings them back to the ring. Pit Bull #2 stays on top of the champ with a huge lariat. Raven is whipped to the far corner and Pit Bull #2 SANDWICHES him. Raven is whipped to the opposite corner and Pit Bull #2 sandwiches him again. Pit Bull #2 whips Raven to the far corner again and SANDWICH! Stevie slides in and spins Pit Bull #2 around. He tries for a Stevie Kick, but Pit Bull #2 catches the kick. All according to plan, as Raven goes down low. Stevie Richards is handed something by Nova. He hands it off to Raven and it’s a strand of barbed wire! Raven goes to pick up Pit Bull #2. He shoves him into the corner and begins to wrap the barbed wire around his fist. Raven charges, but Pit Bull #2 moves. Pit Bull #2 bounces off the ropes and comes back with another lariat. He then removes the barbed wire from Raven’s hand and begins wrapping it around Raven’s head. OH MY GOD – He slams Raven’s head into the turnbuckle!

A quick snap mare and now Pit Bull #2 climbs the turnbuckles, as he is setting up for the Super Bomb. Richards and Nova come in and try to pull Raven away from Pit Bull #2. Tommy Dreamer comes out and hooks Nova and Richards and disposes them with a Double DDT! Prime Time Brian Lee has now come out to the ring. He grabs Tommy by the neck and drops him with the Prime Time Slam. Pit Bull #2 releases Raven and catches Brian Lee with a knee. Brian Lee doubles over in pain and Pit Bull #2 decides to lift him off of his feet and drop him with a Prime Time Powerbomb. A Stevie Kick catches Pit Bull #2 off guard and Raven spikes Pit Bull #2 with a DDT. He falls on top of Pit Bull #2; 1……2……3!
Eliminated: Pit Bull #2 (Pinfall > DDT | 5:44)

Tommy Dreamer begins to stir and so is Brian Lee – Another Prime Time Slam to Tommy Dreamer! Nova and Stevie Richards begin to stomp down on Dreamer, while Brian Lee shoves Pit Bull #2 into the corner and begins unloading on him. Raven has finally gotten to his feet and he is handed his title.

WAIT!

IT’S THE SANDMAN!

He rolls into the ring and canes Richards. Nova is next to be canned and Brian Lee gets off of Pit Bull #2 and he gets caned. Raven rolls to the floor and begins to head to the back. The referee has no other recourse but to count out the champion, thus awarding the match to the Sandman. Sandman looks pissed, as once again, Raven has weaseled his way out of a match.
Winner: The Sandman (Count Out | 6:07)

Why is Bluedust coming to the ring? He enters the ring and grabs the mic, breaths in deeply, “Bluedust…” Beulah hits him low and together with Kimona, they drop him with a double DDT! The Sandman pulls out two beers and hands them to Dreamer and Pit Bull #2. He then gets one for himself and all three share a moment, as all three have a common enemy – Raven and his Nest.

ECW Hardcore TV #94 - June 25, 1996

We start with Joey Styles in the ring.


“Hello everyone and welcome to EXTREME Championship Wrestling!” Joey pauses for the obligatory ECW chant. “I'm Joey Styles, at the ECW Arena in beautiful, rustic South Philadelphia, along with hundreds of fans, from all over the country and all over the world that have converged to the corner of Swanson and Richter for Hardcore Heaven 1996! At this time, because I have no choice, I’m going to be introducing…”

The lights are turned off, as the crowd is restless. “What the hell…get off of me!” screams Joey Styles. The lights are turned back on and Stevie Richards, wearing a black trench coat, is using Joey to help him get back to his feet. The clueless putz tripped during the blackout! Stevie gets to his feet and picks up a black hat. Joey reluctantly finishes his sentence, “From Death Valley…The Underfaker… and his companion…” Joey sighs, “...Bluedust…and his, her, his director…Patricia”

“Ride of the Valkyries” begins to play, as Divine Brown comes to the ring with a cigar in her mouth. The Blue Meanie, sorry I mean Bluedust follows her to the ring. Bluedust is wearing a white body suit, covered in blue paint. His face is also covered by the blue paint and he is wearing a blond wig. Bluedust helps Divine, opps, I mean Patricia into the ring and they, along with Richards, I swear I'll get it right soon,the Underfaker, surround an obviously depressed Joey Styles. Joey is startled by the Underfaker and he accidentally knocks off his hat. “STOP THE MUSIC ALREADY! You know, if I wanted to watch the circus, I’d stay home in Stamford!” screams a frustrated Joey Styles. Joey warns Richards that he better have some earth shattering news, or else he’s leaving. Joey also points out how Bluedust looks more like Dusty Rhodes than his own son, Dustin.

Richards, in a deep voice, begins, “Joey Styles… the creatures of the night want to know…” His hat falls off again and Richards decides to ignore it, “…The creatures of the night need to know why I and my masculine friend, Bluedust are doing out here. We are out here tonight to announce that my man, Raven, the ECW World Heavyweight Champion…” Bluedust starts crawling around the ring, making it real hard for Richards and Joey Styles to stay in character. “…will be bringing out the girl the Underfaker has found to be the most disgusting, the dirtiest…” Bluedust tries to dry hump Joey’s leg, “…slimiest woman to show to society.” Richards tries his hardest to roll back his eyes. Bluedust drops to his knees in fear, “Have no fear Bluedust, I will not hurt you.”

It looks like Richards has said his peace, but instead of leaving, Bluedust grabs the mic from Joey. “Mr. Joey Styles… Raven said that I wasn’t feminine enough, so I’m out here to show to you how feminine I can be…” Bluedust drops to his knees and Joey freaks out. He tries to leave the ring, only to have the Underfaker grab him by the neck. Joey swats Richards’ hand away, throws down the mic, and storms off to the back.


The intro wraps up and now we go to Joey Styles standing in front of the ECW banner. Joel Gertner can be heard in the background, doing his ring announcing duties. On tonight’s show, The Franchise defends the ECW World TV title against Chris Jericho, and Raven will defend the ECW World Heavyweight Title against an opponent of the fans choosing. You see, before Hardcore Heaven 96 even started, we gave the fans a chance to play booker, as they voted on the person who would be facing Raven for his belt. The votes are still being counted, but Joey Styles will let everyone know the verdict once it happens… what the hell is Joel Gertner doing?

Cut to the ring, as Joel Gertner hams it up, “Let’s get ready to ru… Let’s get ready to ru… Let’s get ready to ru…”

CRACK!!!

The Sandman has come out to the ring and he has knocked out Joel Gertner with his cane! The fans chant “ONE MORE TIME”, so Sandman hits him again… and again. The Sandman picks up the mic and yells at Missy Hyatt to bring out Bob Artese. The fans chant “WELCOME BACK”, as Missy brings out Mr. Artese. The Sandman gives Artese two choices, he can be like Joel and receive an ass kicking or he can be the ring announcer that ECW deserves, but first…

“Missy, get’em!”

Missy starts making out with Bob Artese and the fans start chanting “HE’S HARDCORE”. Bob falls down, as Joey welcomes him back to ECW… and yes, he is hardcore.

******************************

“California Love” by 2Pac plays, as Joey Styles does a voice over for a commercial.

“ECW Home Video proudly presents the Heat Wave History package.

******************************

1) ECW World TV Title - Shane Douglas vs. Chris Jericho:

We come back, as “Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple plays. The Franchise comes to the ring first, with a smirk on his face. He drags the belt and tosses it in the ring. Chris Jericho comes out next, as Joey points out that if Jericho does capture the title, this will be the first singles title he’s won on American soil.

Jericho manages to frustrate the Franchise in the opening seconds, to the point Douglas rolls to the floor and kicks the guardrail in frustration. Douglas responds by rolling back into the ring and getting into Jericho’s face. Douglas proceeds to slap him across the face! Jericho laughs it off and fires back with a slap of his own! The two trade slaps, until Jericho ends up ducking a slap and maneuvers into a backslide pin attempt; 1……2......No! Douglas shakes off this early pin attempt, but he soon is rolled up again, which of course sets him off. Douglas channels his frustration into knocking Jericho to the floor. From there, he waits for the opportune moment and when it comes, Douglas vaults over the ropes and lands on Jericho! Douglas rams Jericho into the ring post for good measure. Jericho holds himself up with aide from the guardrail, as Douglas stays on top of him with shots to the back. Jericho lands a jab to the gut and that’s enough to stop the Franchise in his tracks. Jericho then hooks Douglas and drapes him over the guardrail, all so he can go to the ring apron and come back down onto the Franchise!

The move sends Douglas stumbling into the first row, while Jericho recovers on the opposite side of the guardrail. He begins to pull the guardrail towards the ring, slides back in the ring, and climbs to the top, just so he can then dive from the ring and glide over the guardrail, landing on the Franchise! Both are slow to get to their feet and even before they do, they begin to exchange blows. The fight eventually enters the aisle way, as Douglas slaps on a side headlock and begins to punch him in the head. Jericho fights back with jabs to the back and ends up lifting the Franchise off of his feet and placing him back on the guardrail. Jericho goes up to the ring apron again, as Douglas hops off the guardrail. Jericho looks back, before leaping onto the middle rope and attempting an Asi Moonsault. Jericho hits the concrete floor hard, barely landing on the Franchise.

Douglas slowly crawls back into the ring, just as Jericho begins to stir. The Franchise regains control of the match and decides now is the time to mock Jericho, as he drops him with a standing dropkick, followed, of course, by Douglas yelling “COME ON BABY!”. Douglas begins to work over Jericho’s right leg, because if he takes the only advantage Jericho has, then he has the match all but won. Douglas feels the need to drop Jericho with another dropkick, but that’s not the end of the Franchise mockery, as he begins to set Jericho up on the top turnbuckle. He’s mocking Mikey Whipwreck now! The Franchise is attempting a Frankenmikey, but Jericho ends up fighting back and he counters with a top rope sit out Powerbomb! The ref gets to the count of five when Jericho begins get back to a standing base. He then climbs up to the top. Douglas tries knocking him down, but Jericho ends up knocking the Franchise back, momentarily.

Jericho positions himself and lands a Picture Perfect Missile Dropkick. He makes the cover; 1......2……NO! The Franchise barely kicks out in time! “COME ON BABY!” Jericho gets a running start and he goes for the Lion Sault – Douglas lifts up his knees and Jericho lands on them! Douglas quickly scoops Jericho up and pops the hips and drops him with the Belly to Belly Suplex! 1……2......3! NO! Somehow, someway, Jericho gets a shoulder up before the three count. Douglas doesn’t skip a beat and it looks like he’s going for a Figure 4 Leg Lock. Jericho reaches up and pulls Douglas down into a small package, but Douglas easily escapes. Irish whip, reversal and Jericho fires back with a spin kick the sends Douglas to the ring apron. Jericho leaps to the second rope and dropkicks Douglas to the floor, sending him into the guardrail. Jericho follows up with a simple plancha, but there’s no water in the pool, once again. Douglas rolls in the ring and he is feeling the effects of this grueling match up. Jericho crawls onto the ring apron and he reenters the ring. Douglas strikes and he pops the hips once more – Jericho slips out and he rolls the Franchise up! 1……2……3!
Winner: Chris Jericho (Pinfall > Roll Up | 12:09)

HE DID IT! JERICHO PINNED THE FRANCHISE! JERICHO IS A CHAMPION!

Douglas rolls to the floor and stays there, in shock. Jericho is handed the belt and the Franchise is seething mad. He enters the ring and snatches back the belt. He stares down at it for what seemed like an eternity, before handing off the belt to Jericho. Douglas then exits the ring and heads to the back.

******************************

Joey Styles is here for an important reminder, on July 13th, ECW returns to South Philly and the ECW Arena as we kick start the Heat Wave 96 tour.

It’s also the return of Rage of the Cage, ECW will never be the same. So remember to purchase your tickets now before it’s too late.

*****

We cut to a commercial featuring hype man Lance Wright.

“We interrupt this commercial break for a more civilized commercial. As you can tell by the very nature of our program, ECW is governed by a Conservative, Right Wing, politically correct establishment. Now when we are not hanging out in our corporate duds, we like to slip into something a little more comfortable… Say, for example, the EC F’N W T-Shirt. Buy now!”

******************************

Back with Joey Styles and he knows that Chris Jericho is destined for great things and he’ll probably capture more gold elsewhere, but his first will always be the ECW World TV title. Congratulations Chris Jericho. Back to business – We are just minutes away from finding out just who Raven will be facing, but first, here are some highlights from Hardcore Heaven 96.

2) Buh Buh Ray Dudley & Big Dick Dudley vs. The FBI:

Cut to the ring, as JT Smith tries to help Buh Buh Ray Dudley with his line, “My name is…” Buh Buh Ray looks confused, “My name is…” Buh Buh Ray places the mic close to his mouth, “My name is Buh Buh Ray Dudley!” He did it! He finally did it! Buh Buh Ray leaps for joy, while Big Dick stoic expression scares JT. JT picks up the mic, “Now since there’s four of you and just two of us… I’ve decided to reach out and call in a favor to my uncle…” Uncle? Who can be JT Smith’s uncle? We get our answer, as well as a blast from the past, as Wildfire” Tommy Rich comes to the ring. Joey is shocked to see Tommy Rich, but how can he be Italian? I thought he was from Atlanta. Tommy whispers something to Bob Artese, “From…Little Atlanta in the Italian district of Georgia…” Little Atlanta?!? You’ve got to be kidding me – “He is the Big Don of the FBI, Tommy Rich!”

Cut to the beginning of the match, as Big Dick absolutely destroys the Full Blooded Italians. He nearly decapitates JT Smith with a clothesline. Little Guido tries to do anything to stop Big Dick and he gets a clubbing forearm for his trouble. The Big Don knows that he has to do something, so he picks up a chair and knocks out Sign Guy Dudley. Dances with Dudley is the next to be creamed by Tommy Rich and this raises the ire of Big Dick. The big man stands face to face with the Big Don and Rich swings the chair - he breaks it over Big Dick’s head! It has no effect what so ever! Big Dick grabs Rich by the throat and Rich screams for help. JT Smith cracks a chair over Big Dick’s back. Big Dick turns around and stares at a frightened JT Smith. JT looks around for an escape route and when he spots it, the Italian Stallion books it to the back. Big Dick gives chase.

Another cut – Buh Buh Ray is fighting a losing battle against Tommy Rich and Little Guido and there’s no one that can help him, as Sign Guy and DW are still knocked out and Big Dick is in the back searching for JT Smith – Wait, D-Von Dudley hops the guardrail, picks up a chair and enters the ring. This can’t be good for Buh Buh Ray Dudley – What? D-Von hits Rich with the chair, then he hits Guido. The FBI scatter to the floor, while D-Von grabs the mic, “Rule number three states thou shalt not *BEEP* with the Dudleys!” Buh Buh Ray gets to his feet, “It is now time to testify! This is my family, not that Big Dick. I make all the decisions, I sign all the contracts. I control you!” Buh Buh Ray shakes his head and grabs the mic, “D-Von, you are an ass…” D-Von cracks Buh Buh Ray’s skull with the chair! He exits the ring and Guido cautiously makes the cover; 1……2……3.
Winner: The FBI (Pinfall | 2:18 Shown)

“Highway to Hell” hits and here comes Big Dick Dudley! Just like the last time, D-Von hops the rails. Big Dick storms to the ring, surveys the carnage done by his half-brother and starts to give chase. Cut to outside the Arena – D-Von gets into a car and it leaves, just as Big Dick catches up. Big Dick growls in anger.

Cut back to Joey Styles and D-Von wasn’t kidding around that he has full control over who Buh Buh Ray Dudley fights in an ECW ring, as he has signed his half-brother up for a match at Heat Wave 96, July 13th, ECW Arena in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – against Taz!

******************************

“Come Out and Play” by the Offspring blares over the PA System. Raven emerges from behind the black curtain, with Stevie Richards and Nova trailing not far behind. Raven looks to be annoyed by Nova and Stevie’s actions, so he sits in the corner, while Stevie grabs the mic. He listened to what Raven ordered him to do and he did it! He first tried with Divine Brown, but Raven said that she hadn’t slept with enough men yet. Next he tried with Bluedust, but Raven said he wasn’t feminine enough. But now he thinks he has got it right. “Raven, I give to you the dirtiest, the sleaziest, the *BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP* in the world. I bring to you my exe – FRANCINE!!!”

Quick cut to Joey Styles – the votes have been counted and it is a tie between the Sandman and Pit Bull #2 – GO BACK TO THE RING!

Cut back to the ring, as the Beast Master herself, Francine storms out and slaps Richards across the face. Pit Bull #2 holds back Francine – Raven blindsides him! Stevie Kick to the jaw! Raven spikes the Pit Bull with a DDT!.

3) ECW World Heavyweight Title: Raven © vs. Pit Bull #2 vs. The Sandman:

Pit Bull #2 is back up! He pounds his chest and Raven isn’t impressed, as he gets in Pit Bull #2’s face. Pit Bull #2 steam rolls through Raven and this causes Raven to take a powder on the floor. Pit Bull #2 follows Raven and slams him, head first, into the guardrail. He dumps Raven up and over the guardrail. Stevie Richards gets the Pit Bull’s attention, briefly, but it is still enough time for Raven to distance himself from Pit Bull #2. The Pit Bull hops the rails and pursues Raven. Raven doesn’t get far, as Pit Bull #2 starts beating him with a steel chair. Raven’s face starts to resemble a crime scene, as blood covers it.

Raven continues to run from Pit Bull #2 and this brings them back to the ring. Pit Bull #2 stays on top of the champ with a huge lariat. Raven is whipped to the far corner and Pit Bull #2 SANDWICHES him. Raven is whipped to the opposite corner and Pit Bull #2 sandwiches him again. Pit Bull #2 whips Raven to the far corner again and SANDWICH! Stevie slides in and spins Pit Bull #2 around. He tries for a Stevie Kick, but Pit Bull #2 catches the kick. All according to plan, as Raven goes down low. Stevie Richards is handed something by Nova. He hands it off to Raven and it’s a strand of barbed wire! Raven goes to pick up Pit Bull #2. He shoves him into the corner and begins to wrap the barbed wire around his fist. Raven charges, but Pit Bull #2 moves. Pit Bull #2 bounces off the ropes and comes back with another lariat. He then removes the barbed wire from Raven’s hand and begins wrapping it around Raven’s head. OH MY GOD – He slams Raven’s head into the turnbuckle!

A quick snap mare and now Pit Bull #2 climbs the turnbuckles, as he is setting up for the Super Bomb. Richards and Nova come in and try to pull Raven away from Pit Bull #2. Tommy Dreamer comes out and hooks Nova and Richards and disposes them with a Double DDT! Prime Time Brian Lee has now come out to the ring. He grabs Tommy by the neck and drops him with the Prime Time Slam. Pit Bull #2 releases Raven and catches Brian Lee with a knee. Brian Lee doubles over in pain and Pit Bull #2 decides to lift him off of his feet and drop him with a Prime Time Powerbomb. A Stevie Kick catches Pit Bull #2 off guard and Raven spikes Pit Bull #2 with a DDT. He falls on top of Pit Bull #2; 1……2……3!
Eliminated: Pit Bull #2 (Pinfall > DDT | 5:44)

Tommy Dreamer begins to stir and so is Brian Lee – Another Prime Time Slam to Tommy Dreamer! Nova and Stevie Richards begin to stomp down on Dreamer, while Brian Lee shoves Pit Bull #2 into the corner and begins unloading on him. Raven has finally gotten to his feet and he is handed his title.

WAIT!

IT’S THE SANDMAN!

He rolls into the ring and canes Richards. Nova is next to be canned and Brian Lee gets off of Pit Bull #2 and he gets caned. Raven rolls to the floor and begins to head to the back. The referee has no other recourse but to count out the champion, thus awarding the match to the Sandman. Sandman looks pissed, as once again, Raven has weaseled his way out of a match.
Winner: The Sandman (Count Out | 6:07)

Why is Bluedust coming to the ring? He enters the ring and grabs the mic, breaths in deeply, “Bluedust…” Beulah hits him low and together with Kimona, they drop him with a double DDT! The Sandman pulls out two beers and hands them to Dreamer and Pit Bull #2. He then gets one for himself and all three share a moment, as all three have a common enemy – Raven and his Nest.
This is really cool, Keep it up Baron!!!
