ECW Hardcore TV #1 Preview
January 13th, 2001 - ECW Arena; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Extreme Championship Wrestling is still here despite what marks have been filling the internet with and ECW is here to stay! Hardcore TV will be brought to you from the place we like to call home, the ECW Arena in Philadelphia and as the arena has come accustom to, there will be hardcore action throughout the night!
Hardcore TV has a thrilling main event set with the new ECW World Heavyweight Champion, 'The Man Beast' Rhino defending his other championship, the ECW TV title against Johnny Swinger, whom Rhino left decimated at Guilty As Charged along with 'Da Blue Guy' Blue Boy & shockingly, even Dawn Marie wasn't safe from Rhino's path of destruction. Swinger will have his work cut out for him for sure as Rhino has been destroying everyone that has been put in his path.
Things didn't completely work in The Network's favor at Guilty As Charged, though. As Rob Van Dam answered Rhino's challenge for the ECW World Championship, Jerry Lynn sneak attacked 'The Whole F'N Show' and as a result, Guilty As Charged were treated to an impromptu main event with Lynn & Van Dam. These two aren't strangers to competition with each other but, Jerry Lynn has not beat Rob Van Dam as much as Rob Van Dam had beat Jerry Lynn so Lynn had a lot to prove and Cyrus was expecting victory for the Network, as plans will be, plans will go arise as Lynn was unsuccessful yet again after taking Rob Van Dam to the limit and fell victim to the Van Terminator and once again was pinned by 'The Whole F'N Show' Cyrus & The Network will surely have something to say regarding what went down at Guilty As Charged, what that many be, we don't know, the only way to find out is by checking your local TV listings and hoping Hardcore TV is available for your area and watching!
Also scheduled for Hardcore TV, 'Amish' Roadkill will be facing 'Little' Guido Maritato in a one on one match, a victory from Guido would surely put the Full Blooded Italians in contention for a tag team title shot but, Roadkill is no easy feat, having held the ECW Tag Team Championships with partner, Danny Doring for over a month, the duo are quickly solidifying themselves as one of the best tag teams in pro wresting today. Also appearances expected from 'Nasty' Nova but, will Chris Chetti return to Hardcore TV much like he did at Guilty As Charged? 'The Innovator Of Violence' Tommy Dreamer & 'The Enforcer' CW Anderson are also expected to address what went down in their brutal I Quit match and much, much more! Be sure to tune in to Hardcore TV with 'The Voice of ECW' Joey Styles bringing you commentary from The Nest!
