Extreme TV Preview: The ECW World Title will be on the line at Hardcore Heaven when 'The Man Beast' Rhino must defend his gold against two former champions in Justin Credible and 'The Extreme Icon' Sandman, but tonight, Rhino will be forced to team up with Credible to take on Sandman and Tommy Dreamer in main event action! Dreamer, a face of ECW, is coming off of a huge week after throwing CW Anderson from the balcony last week, putting his rival out of action for the immediate future, and maybe for forever!? The ECW Tag Team Champions, Danny Doring and Roadkill, are also in action tonight as they team with Balls Mahoney to take on Simon Diamond, and their Hardcore Heaven opponents and title challengers, the Full Blooded Italians! And in other action tonight, the new-look Michael Whipwreck will combat 'Little' Spike Dudley! In ring action not enough tonight? Well hold onto yours hats, because ECW Owner Paul Heyman will be in the building tonight, and he will have words for the invading N.I.T.R.O contingent of Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, and 'Fat' Tony Schiavone. All this, plus Jerry Lynn and Rob Van Dam, on...

ECW on USA: Extreme TV
05-04-01
[69%]

Hey, an opening! The ECW video package plays in sequence with "This is Extreme" to start off the broadcast. However, as soon as the the video and theme end, we get what would normally happen before the show opens, a man standing in the back, ready to cut a promo. The man standing in the back? None other than ECW Owner, Paul Heyman!

Paul Heyman: I'm gonna make this real quick because I promise you that there will be more from me to come tonight. Mike Awesome, Lance Storm... I'm sick of the petty little games. Show up and create a ruckus; I've accepted the terms of your engagement. I know all about playing dirty; we here at ECW are all about crossing the line of acceptance. So gentlemen, I know that the two of you are somewhere near the arena tonight, and I can bet that you're listening right now. Tonight, live, in front of the world, I'm gonna call you out. I want you both to meet me and face off in the ring, men... to man.

Heyman gives a devious smirk as the segment fades out and we cut to the Nest with Joey Styles calling the action. Styles talks about Hardcore Heaven being only nine days away, and that, as confirmed on the official ECW website, a three-way dance has been booked for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship between champion Rhino, the Sandman, and Justin Credible, for the PPV. Styles also says that tonight Rhino and Justin Credible will be forced to team up as they take on Sandman and Tommy Dreamer. With Dreamer mentioned, Styles recaps the incident last week when Dreamer threw CW Anderson off a balcony and through a bunch of tables, leaving the Extreme Enforcer left for dead. Styles says that Anderson will not be in the building tonight, and that as of now, there is no word on when he will return to ECW. The action then cuts to the ring, where the Full Blooded Italians, Simon Diamond, Johnny Swinger, and Dawn Marie are already in the ring. Diamond, who according to Styles, is supposed to be wrestling tonight, is in street clothes. "Soul Coughing" by Super Bon Bon then hits, bringing out the reigning ECW Tag Team Champions, 'Dastardly' Danny Doring and 'The Angry Amish Warrior' Roadkill, as well as their partner for tonight's six-man tag match, 'Big' Balls Mahoney. Mahoney has a steel chair in his hand as the team make an entrance, and on his chair is the name 'Simon Diamond' spray painted in white lettering. Styles quips that Mahoney has made Simon Diamond a marked man after Diamond's attempted antics with him over the last week, and he may get his tonight. As everyone gets in the ring, Simon Diamond addresses everyone.

Simon Diamond: Ladies and gentlemen of New York... Simon has a problem! You see, as much as I wanted to entertain everybody in attendance - and of course, the beautiful viewers watching at home - in tonight's six man tag match, I have suffered a... uh... ah... back injury. And unfortunately, I have had to pull out of this match. Now, fear not! I am not going to be leaving my partners, these fine New Yorkers, the Full Blooded Italians, without a partner, oh no! In my place will be, not only a promising young star, but my best friend... Johnny Swinger!

Johnny Swinger raises his arms confidently into the air, and for his troubles... gets whacked by a Balls Mahoney steel chair shot over the skull!

Balls Mahoney, Danny Doring, & Roadkill vs. Full Blooded Italians & Johnny Swinger (w/Dawn Marie, Sal E. Graziano, & Simon Diamond) [65%]

Swinger collapses after the chair shot, and Roadkill flattens both members of the FBI with a double clothesline, allowing the faces to control the match early on. Danny Doring scores a near fall with a Bareback on Tony Mamaluke, giving the challengers a preview of what might be in store at Hardcore Heaven. Both Roadkill and Mahoney get their fun as well, with Mahoney mounting Mamaluke in the corners and delivering ye olde ten punch count, the crowd chanting "Balls" with every strike. The tides turn though when Big Sal trips up Danny Doring as the cocky champion runs off the ropes, distracting the Dastardly One long enough to allow Mamaluke to connect with a spike DDT. The heel contingent isolate Doring afterwards, keeping the Tag Champ in their corner and wailing away at him. Doring, a resilient douche, fights back, however, and reverses a whip before sending Swinger up and over to the canvas with a high-angled hip toss. As Doring sets to go for the hot tag to Roadkill, however, Little Guido makes his presence felt, running into the ring and grabbing Doring by the back of the head and slamming him to the canvas. All it does is bring everyone into the ring, creating pandemonium.

Roadkill and Mahoney use their huge size to take on all three men, knocking everyone down with big right hands repeatedly. The big boys get the three heels reeling, and the crowd gets popping as Roadkill sends Guido and Mamaluke over the top rope with a double clothesline. Mahoney and Roadkill then whip Doring off the ropes before throwing him over the top rope, sending him crashing onto Big Sal, taking him down! As the faces taunt in the ring, with Mahoney preparing to measure Swinger for the Nutcracker Suite, Little Guido grabs the two ECW Tag Belts off the time keeper's table, and he and Mamaluke sprint up the aisle! Doring decks Graziano with a big right hook on the outside in anger, and he and Roadkill take off running from the ringside area after the FBI, looking to get back their belts. In the ring, Mahoney lifts Swinger up for the Nutcracker Suite to finish things off, but Simon Diamond slides into the ring, and he's holding Mahoney's chair! CRACK~! Chair to the back of Balls! Mahoney drops Swinger as he turns around to face Diamond, enraged. CRACK~! Steel chair to the skull! That staggers Balls, and Swinger rolls him up with a school boy, and Diamond dives on top as well! ONE! TWO! THREE! Simon Diamond faked an injury to avoid having to wrestle Mahoney, and he still was able to punk him out!

Johnny Swinger & the Full Blooded Italians def. Balls Mahoney, Danny Doring, & Roadkill

As "Simon Says" plays throughout the Hammerstein Ballroom, Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger quickly roll out of the ring, celebrating their victory over Mahoney. Dawn Marie joins them in the aisle, and the three are all smiles, especially Diamond, who keeps pointing to his brain with his finger while continuing to act like his back is injured, laughing all the while. Mahoney fumes in the ring, pulling at his hair before kicking the bottom rope in f...tration. Judging by the look on his face, Mahoney will certainly be coming back for more.

Welcome to the Jungle [66%]

After a quick commercial break, Extreme TV returns to the USA Network with the theme of ECW, "This is Extreme" by Harry Slash and the Slashtones, playing throughout the ballroom, and ECW Owner and Executive Producer Paul Heyman standing in the ring, holding a microphone, a look of determination on his face.

Paul Heyman: Over the past month, I have had to sit back and watch in anger as two men, Mike Awesome and Lance Storm, have essentially invaded part of ECW's programming on the USA Network. There was nothing I could do; I was powerless to stop those two corporate sell-outs from finding a way to appear on ECW's show - to stop them from stealing time from the boys in the back who have stayed with this company and busted their asses to get the TV they deserve!

Already Heyman's getting fired up.

Paul Heyman: But then last week, I saw something...different. Last week, I saw the biggest, overrated piece of *shit* in the wrestling business today find a way to waddle his fat ass onto our show. And when I saw Tony Schiavone show up on Extreme TV and try to make himself look like a better commentator and play-by-play man than our very own Joey Styles, I couldn't help but laugh. From the very first moment Mike Awesome showed up on our pilot episode with USA, the whole point wasn't to simply "take over," I know that. Mike Awesome wanted to ridicule us. He wanted to embarrass ECW. But if fat Tony Schiavone is your ace in the hole, then boys, I am sadly disappointed in what you have to offer.

...What?

Paul Heyman: You see, I know Mike Awesome and Lance Storm very well. You all know the story. They became stars right here in ECW. They became known and made their mark... in Extreme Championship Wrestling. They then, however, left my company, chasing the all important green. Money, greed, and power are just a few of the things that they succumbed to, although Mike Awesome is the biggest sell-out of them all. When he left to go... down south - is that legal enough for you, Vince? - he tried to completely bury this company on national TV. He wanted to bring the ECW World Heavyweight Title with him, and live on TNT, he was going to throw our company's most prestigious belt in the garbage!

"Fuck You Awesome!"

Paul Heyman: I agree with each and every single one of you chanting that! If Mike Awesome were to die tonight, I wouldn't shed one effin' tear! It's apparent what my feelings are for the gentlemen who have tried to come into my company and cause a ruckus. So I think it is pretty obvious that over the past month, I have tried everything in my power to prevent Mike Awesome and Lance Storm from appearing on ECW TV... but yet, somehow, they have gotten through all the legal loopholes, they have slipped past all of the barriers I have worked so tirelessly to build up to try and prevent them from getting into the buildings that we have run our shows at. Gentlemen, you have done well to continue to find ways to get past my security, past the police, past all the boys in the back. Really, I commend you for it!

Wow, what a nice guy, that Paul E.

Paul Heyman: Every time you two have tried to take over Extreme TV, it's been unannounced, spur of the moment. We never knew when you would show up, you simply... have. But last week, last week was different. When you sent Fat Tony out to send a message, to tell me and everyone else incorporated with ECW that you're going to be "invading" Hardcore Heaven on pay per view, Sunday, May 13... you gave us fair warning what you intended to do. So now that you have informed me just what your plans are, I have had the time to think, process, and formulate a response. And that is why I am standing in this ring tonight, right here and now, conducting my little monologue. So, gentlemen, you want to hear my response? Well here it is!

After cheers from the crowd, Heyman issues his response.

Paul Heyman: If you want to "invade" ECW at Hardcore Heaven in nine days time, then I am not going to try and barricade the ECW Arena... I'm gonna do the exact opposite! I'm going to open up the doors to you on Sunday, May 13th! And not only am I going to allow your little N.I.T.R.O contingent through the doors, I'm gonna let you get in the ring!

While the ECW fans may hate Awesome and Storm, the prospect of them in the ring, presumably facing off against the best of ECW, has the fans salivating, and of course, cheering.

Paul Heyman: You see, it's going to be very simple: one of your guys... against one of mine!

HUGE pop from the fans.

Paul Heyman: And we'll see just who has the balls when there are no sneak attacks - no shady business! - but just a straight up, one-on-one, good ole' hardcore 'rasslin' match!

The crowd continues to go crazy for Heyman's challenge.

Paul Heyman: So Mike, Lance, I can guarantee that you are both in the building right now, planning your next ambush, so here's your chance to come out here and face me man... to men!

After a few moments of silence and craned necks as the crowd look saround for the N.I.T.R.O contingent, there is a small ruckus in a portion of the crowd as a bunch of yellow-polo wearing goons march towards the ring. Once the camera gets a better shot of the men, the man leading the charge, according to Joey Styles, is Doug Dillinger, former Head of Security for that legally censored company. Right behind him is neither Mike Awesome nor Lance Storm, but the fat, plump figure of Tony Schiavone, looking smug as can be in a grey suit. Schiavone, somehow - I still am unsure how he achieved this Olympic feat - climbs over the guard rail, and gets into the ring, while Dillinger and the security remain at ringside. Heyman, to his effort, doesn't look mad at all at Schiavone again being sent to do the bidding of the N.I.T.R.O group, and instead smirks like the evil genius that he is. With a grin on his face, it is Schiavone who breaks the silence.

Tony Schiavone: Hello Paul E. Been a while, hasn't it?

Heyman just continues to smirk.

Tony Schiavone: I'm sorry that I'm not the men you're looking for, but Awesome and Storm, those guys have better things to do than answer to Paul Heyman... like anything!

Heyman just laughs, taking it all in stride.

Tony Schiavone: I do have to admit though, it was music to my ears when you came to the realization that you can't stop this invasion from coming because we are here, Paul Heyman, and, as a little group I once used to talk about a lot used to say... we're taking over! And guess what, Paul? There is nothing you can do about it!

It's all laughs from Heyman.

Paul Heyman: I'm hearing a lot of talk, talk, talk from you and your little group, and to tell ya' the truth, I'm ready for the action! Allow me to inform you of something: you see, we here at ECW, we don't just talk the talk... we walk the walk too. So yes, Tony Schiavone, I am going to now welcome this invasion of Extreme Championship Wrestling, but understand that your little war you're trying to wage... it isn't going to last very long. Me, I have absolute faith in any and every wrestler on my roster to defeat either Mike Awesome or Lance Storm at Hardcore Heaven next Sunday, and when that happens, you and your little "N.I.T.R.O" contingent will be running all the way back to Georgia with your tail firmly tucked in between your legs!

Tony Schiavone: Ah, but Paul, that is where you are wrong. Not only will we defeat ECW in its very own house, in front of its very own fans, but it may not even be Mike Awesome or Lance Storm showing up at Hardcore Heaven. That's the beauty, Paul, or in your case, the beast; you have burned a lot of bridges throughout your time in the wrestling world. There are a lot of guys I know just itching to have a chance to show up in ECW and kick your ass! And, to make it even better for me and my boys, there's a whole lot of guys on the unemployment line right now, just waiting for a phone call from me, or Mike Awesome, or Lance Storm, and they'll be here... like that.

Schiavone snaps his fingers for effect.

Tony Schiavone: You have no idea what's going to happen at Hardcore Heaven. You have given us a golden opportunity to walk in your house, and humiliate you in front of your very own fans. We're going to take that opportunity, Paul, but that... that's nine days from now. I'm here tonight, not just to accept your challenge for Hardcore Heaven, but for what's to come next. There are two men who are here tonight that want to send a message to you and ECW before our little duel next Sunday. So at this time, Now Introducing... the Turner 'Rasslin' Organization!

Heyman stands in the ring looking confused, while Schiavone, grinning, exits the ring. After a few moments, two men jump the barricade from the same spot Schiavone came from earlier, and there's no guessing who those men are - Mike Awesome and Lance Storm. The two men enter the ring, with no microphone at the ready, and not looking like they want one either. The two men slowly circle their former boss, Mike Awesome looking like he is salivating at the chance of putting his hands on Paul Heyman. Heyman looks fearful for his life, but then after a moment, loses the facade and grins.

Paul Heyman: Boys, boys, boys... I know exactly why you two are out here right now. You want to hurt me, torture me, send a big message to all the boys in the back that you're here to take us all out. Well, if you really think the fat man with the Kool-Aid didn't hand some of it out to the boys in the back before I came out here, ya' got another thing coming! And that thing that's coming? It's here, right about... now!

And just like that, Heyman hits the canvas and rolls out of the ring while Tommy Dreamer, Sandman, ECW Tag Team Champions Danny Doring and Roadkill, and even Justin Credible all appear at ringside! Dreamer, Sandman (holding a Singapore Cane, of course), and the ECW Tag Team Champions all jump the barricade from the audience and enter the ring, while Credible, also brandishing his t...ty weapon, sprints down the entrance aisle. Doug Dillinger and his crackpot security team try to stop the ECW wrestlers, but Sandman and Credible, and their t...ty Singapore Canes, quickly mow through Dillinger and the rest of the security team. In the ring, it's a straight up brawl as Awesome and Storm try to hold off Tommy Dreamer, Danny Doring, and Roadkill, the two men clearly not expecting their plan to attack Paul Heyman resulting in a set-up to have them ambushed instead. Dreamer and Awesome trade wild haymakers, while Storm tries to battle the ECW Tag Team Champions, but Doring and Roadkill overcome with strength in numbers, while Tommy Dreamer eventually knocks Dreamer down with a big right hand!

Justin Credible and Sandman join in on the fun, although N.I.T.R.O fight back as Lance Storm decks Danny Doring with a Superkick out of nowhere, while Mike Awesome gets up and clocks Sandman with a stiff lariat. However, any attempt of a comeback from Awesome and Storm is c...hed when out from the back sprints the reigning ECW World Champion, Rhino! Awesome and Storm brawl with the ECW icons as the Man Beast dives into the ring, making a beeline for Mike Awesome... GORE! GORE!!! GORE!!! Down goes the ECW traitor! Lance Storm succumbs to the beat down as well, and Doring and Roadkill end up holding Storm by the arms, giving Justin Credible free reign to drive his Singapore Cane right across the face of his former tag team partner! Storm drops to his knees before falling face first, and Awesome and Storm remain down on the canvas as the men of Extreme Championship Wrestling stand tall. Paul Heyman rejoins the fun in the ring, celebrating with Tommy Dreamer. There's an awkward moment between Rhino, Sandman, and Justin Credible, the three men all staring each other down and choosing not to fight each other at this moment, despite their pending match against each other at Hardcore Heaven, and their tag match with Tommy Dreamer tonight as well. Joey Styles takes the opportunity to put over just how important ECW is to everyone in the back, as they are willing to put aside their differences - only for time being - to defend their company against the invading forces of the N.I.T.R.O group. The men of ECW all celebrate in the ring over the fallen Awesome and Storm as the show cuts out to another break.


As Extreme TV on USA returns, it is to Spike Dudley and Michael Whipwreck already in the ring, about to face-off in the next match of the evening. So lets get right to it!

Michael Whipwreck vs. Spike Dudley [70%]

Mikey's new mean streak helps him get the advantage early on as despite a flurry of punches from Spike, Whipwreck scores with a cheap shot - a low kick that catches Dudley's groin - to allow him to work over Dudley in the corner. Mikey shows his tenacity as he stiffly kicks Dudley in the ribs and wails away on him. While Whipwreck keeps his offense to a lot of brawling, he shows his improved aerial ability when he whips Dudley into the ropes and connects with a swinging hurricanrana. Whipwreck covers, and gets a two count for his efforts. Dudley continues to take a butt whipping from Whipwreck, getting slammed with a power bomb. Whipwreck keeps a hold of Dudley and lifts him up for another 'bomb, but Dudley fires off rapid right hands to the skull of Whipwreck. It sends the two staggering into the ropes near the corner, and as Spike continues to punch Whipwreck, the two men take a tumble, falling over the top rope...sending both men crashing through the timekeeper's table! "ECW! ECW!"

After several moments of rest, both men slowly pull themselves up to their feet, and Whipwreck again connects with a cheap shot to Spike. Whipwreck looks to seize the opportunity created with an Irish whip, but Little Spike reverses, sending Whipwreck face first into the ring post! Spike then rolls Whipwreck into the ring, climbs to the top turnbuckle, and then flies as his opponent gets up to his feet - cross body block! Dudley then goes on the advantage, slamming Whipwreck down with a series of vertical and snap suplexes before grabbing Whipwreck by the face and running off the turnbuckles - ACID DROP... but Whipwreck shoves Dudley off of him, sending Spike crashing to the canvas! Dudley gets right back up to his feet, but receives a kick to the groin! WHIPPERSNAPPER!

Whipwreck gets ready to go for the cover, but as he does so, the Hammerstein Ballroom is filled with Harry Slash and the Slashtones' "T.I.W"! Whipwreck gets up to his feet in disbelief, and Joey Styles fills everyone in why - "Could it be!? That's the music of Yoshihiro Tajiri!" After several moments of Mikey looking around in panic, out from the back comes the Sinister Minister! He wields his cane before pointing it threatening at Whipwreck, who is shell shocked. Another figure dives into the ring behind the unknowing Whipwreck. After a tap on the shoulder, Whipwreck turns around, right into GREEN MIST! Whipwreck is blinded... by TAJIRI! Leaping roundhouse kick to Whipwreck, sending him right into Spike Dudley... ACID DROP! Tajiri cackles as Dudley covers and Jim Molineux counts: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Spike Dudley def. Michael Whipwreck

While Spike Dudley exits the ring right away and starts celebrating up the entrance aisle, truth be told, no one cares too much because this moment is all about Yoshihiro Tajiri and the man who sent him on a month-long exile from ECW, Michael Whipwreck. Having already one-upped his former partner, Tajiri, green mist residue all over his chin, exits the ring as well, and joins his manager, Sinister Minister, at the end of the entrance aisle at ringside. As Whipwreck comes to in the ring, he spots his ex-partner and manager, and continues to shake his head in disbelief. He yells out "No!" several times as well to compound to his shock, while Minister and Tajiri just stare him down, evil smirks on their faces.

Extreme TV then cuts to the back for some orange juice with pulp fiction!

Free TV Time! [77%]

First man up for the close-shot promo is the one and only 'Innovator of Violence' Tommy Dreamer.

Tommy Dreamer: After last week, this whole thing between me and CW Anderson, it's ova'! It seems ta' me like all people want to do is come at Tommy Dreamer left and right, try and get one up on the ole' timer, prove that they're "hardcore". Well CW, you ain't hardcore!

Whoa Dreamer, that's intense!

Tommy Dreamer: Guilty as Charged, I'll give ya' credit, you put on a good fight. But a long time has past since then, and even then, when the going got tough, when you started to get choked... you quit! You couldn't withstand the pain, the feeling of what it means ta' be hardcore, and you admitted defeat. And last week, you did the exact same thing. Ya' ran from me two weeks ago when your plan backfired against you, and last week was the same story. You got faced with a beat down of the most extreme style, and ya' ran... but it came back ta' bite ya in the ass.

Dreamer smirks.

Tommy Dreamer: You took one hell of a fall last week, and I don't know when you'll be back, or if you'll even have the balls ta' show your face in an ECW arena again after what I did to ya'. You ain't hardcore, Anderson, remember that! I'm hardcore! I'm hardcore! I'm hardcore!

Dreamer starts pounding his chest as he continues to yell that one sentence before the promo cuts to another one. This time, we're featured to two men just returning to Extreme Championship Wrestling, EZ Money and Kid Kash!

EZ Money: Last week was supposed to be one hell of a return for me and my new found friend, Kid Kash. We came back to ECW, shocked everyone, and right away, I showed my old running buddies up. Hot Commodity - Chris Hamrick and Julio Dinero - sorry, but EZ Money has moved on to bigger and better things! I was tired of being some rising up and comer because let's be honest, we were goin' nowhere fast!

Kid Kash: And Money, the same can be said for me too. Night after night, I would show up, bust my hump, and get nothin' for it! I had no one who cared enough ta' watch mah back, but those times are a changin'!

EZ Money: Together, me and Kash are going to go straight to the top! And as a team, we're gonna win the matches, we're gonna get the girls, we're gonna win some gold, and heh... we're gonna get that cash mo'nay!

EZ Money smirks, but Kash is still irritated.

Kid Kash: What pisses me off though, EZ, is that our success got delayed for another week because of Nova, and Low-Ky! I don't know who your little friend is Nova, but he got lucky last week when he pinned Money! You two ruined our return, and now, we're gonna ruin you!

Money and Kash smirk and pose as the camera cuts to another promo. Bring on Justin Credible!

Justin Credible: I know I was out there helpin' EC-Dubya out tonight, but Sandman and Rhino, don't think for a damn second that this changes anything! I got my match at Hardcore Heaven in nine days, and I will become the new ECW World Heavyweight Champion. I am the Lone Impact Player in this company, and there is gonna be no stoppin' me on my way to the title! Rhino and Sandman, you can come at me together as a team and I'll kick both your asses at once, or you can tear each other apart and I'll be there to pick up the pieces, it doesn't matter. One thing is for certain though: no matter what happens, I'm gonna pin Sandman's shoulders onto the mat - one, two, three - and then Rhino, I'm gonna put you down for the count - one, two, three - and I'll be left standin' tall... World Champion. Now that, haha ha, that's not just the coolest, it's certainly not just the best... it's Just-In-Credible.

Credible gives a devious smirks as the promo cuts away for the final promo. In a locker room is the reigning ECW World Champion, Rhino, and an angry-looking Rhino.

Cy...: As your manager and your leader, Rhino, I want to know what in the hell I just saw out there! Why in the hell were you out there, standing side by side with the likes of Paul Heyman and Tommy Dreamer, trademark ECW FILTH... and your opponents too!? Sandman and Credible!? HELLOOO! Those are the troglodytes you're facing at Hardcore Heaven! Your challengers! The THREATS to our title!

Rhino, pacing around the room while Cy... was speaking, storms right up to Cy..., getting directly into his face. Despite looking furious and enraged, when Rhino speaks, it is nothing more than a whisper.

Rhino: There are more important things than gold and championships, Cy.... I don't give a damn about Paul Heyman or ECW, but Mike Awesome... that's somethin' I care about. He kicked my ass on national TV last month, made me look like a chump! You think I'm gonna pass up on the chance to extract some revenge? Guess what, Cy...? I'M GONNA! I'M GONNA GET MY REVENGE! HE HUMILIATED ME, CY...! HUMILIATED! WHOSE HUMILIATED NOW, HUH!? HUH, AWESOME!?

Cy... takes a step back, either out of fear, or disgust from spit flying out of Rhino's mouth and onto his face. Rhino, having exploded, is back to a whisper.

Rhino: I stood by my opponents for a few seconds, but I'm gonna make up for that with hours of pain, and that starts tonight. By the time tonight's over, Sandman is gonna be lucky if he can even make it to Hardcore Heaven! I can multi-task, Cy.... I'm not some dumb *fuckin'* animal for you to control. I'll take care of business; I'm gonna stay ECW World Champion. But Mike Awesome... that's personal, that's intimate. And if I can get another chance to take him out, hurt him, embarrass him - humiliate him the way he humiliated me - then I'm gonna do it... and there's not a damn thing you can do about it!

Rhino snarls and growls before leaving, walking out of the locker room, leaving Cy... in a position he's starting to become familiar with... alone.

After a commercial break, Extreme TV returns for the tag team match featuring Tommy Dreamer and the three men who will compete for the ECW World Title at Hardcore Heaven! Tommy Dreamer is already in the ring, and Sandman is finishing his presumably long ass entrance. However, his theme is cut off by Grinspoon's "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck", bringing out The Lone Impact Player, Justin Credible! Credible, sporting just jean shorts as he tends to do, wields a t...ty Singapore Cane, despite using his earlier on the N.I.T.R.O contingent. Sandman also is rocking a new weapon as well. Credible gets onto the apron, but doesn't walk across the mind field by entering the ring, knowing he'd be prone to a pre-match assault by his drunken opponent. Dope's "Debonaire" then hits, bringing out 'The Man Beast' Rhino, without Cy..., much to the delight of Joey Styles. Rhino doesn't seem distracted at all by his manager's absence following their little locker room bust-up, and Styles relishes in the prospects of what that might mean for Cy... and his managerial future. However, all of that goes out of the picture because as soon as Rhino gets into the ring, Sandman lunges at him, bashing him over the skull with the Singapore Cane!

Justin Credible and Rhino vs. Sandman and Tommy Dreamer [78%]

Sandman looks to further Cane Rhino, but is cut out by a Singapore Cane to his ribs from Justin Credible! Credible utterly destroys Sandman with the weapon, proving his might with that Singapore Cane. It ends up with Dreamer and Credible starting the match off, both men exchanging simple blows, neither man gaining an advantage. The action spills outside early, and Tommy Dreamer rings Credible's bell when he holds the ring bell over his ear before hitting the bell with the hammer. It is something the crowd finds awesomely hilarious. The hardcore action stays the status quo for as the match progresses on, with tags being made across the board. The timekeeper's table is put to good use as Rhino inserts himself into the fray, getting Sandman onto the apron before sending both Sandman and himself through the table with a vertical suplex off the apron! "ECW! ECW!"

With the show pressed for time, seeing as there is still another segment to go, this match has no real rhythm or flow to it, and within a few minutes, it is total chaos. Tommy Dreamer and Justin Credible brawl in the ring, while once the other two recover from their table spot, join them as well. As all four men fight, Cy... makes an appearance at ringside, looking to come down and help Rhino out tonight to make up for their earlier spat, according to Joey Styles. Cy... gets to the ringside area, grabs Rhino's ECW World Title Belt, gets Rhino's attention, and throws it into the ring. Instead of Rhino catching it, it is his partner who snatches it, causing confusion between the two. Rhino wrestles the belt away, but immediately takes a haymaker from Sandman, who just stood there confused during the tug of war between Rhino and Credible. Sandman and Dreamer both punch away at Rhino, and to make it all worse for the champion, a Sandman punch turns Rhino around, right into a Singapore Cane across the eyes from Credible! Lights out for Rhino! Credible exits the ring, having taken out his partner, leaving Rhino the wolves. As Dreamer pulls Rhino up to his feet, Sandman grabs his Singapore Cane... WHITE ...SIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover by Sandman, and Rhino's out: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Sandman & Tommy Dreamer def. Rhino & Justin Credible

As Sandman and Dreamer celebrate in the ring together, a smirking Credible backs up the aisle way, knowing that while he'll have a tally in the loss column, he's walking away feeling like a winner tonight, getting one over on one of his opponents for Hardcore Heaven. As Rhino slowly stirs, his manager is left beside himself, hands over his cheeks in shock and embarrassment. "He came down to help his client, and look at how it backfired!" cries Styles. The show then cuts away for a sixty second break, according to Styles, but says not to go anywhere because Jerry Lynn is set to make an appearance next!

The Final Score [65%]

When Extreme TV returns, Lynn is there in the ring already.

Jerry Lynn: I'm not gonna stand around and sugarcoat any sort of bull*shit*, so lets just get straight to the point. Rob, there's somethin' I got to say, and I want ta' say it to your face, so RVD, come on out here!

Right to the point, indeed, Mister Lynn. "Walk" hits just a few moments later, and out appears a somewhat perplexed Rob Van Dam, walking down the aisle by himself. The show cuts to its final break as RVD makes his long entrance, and when Extreme TV returns, both men are in the ring, Lynn ready to talk again - the joys of a taped show.

Jerry Lynn: Rob, you and me have been at this for pushin' three years now. On and off, and back on again, time after time. Not once, have I ever gotten the victory over you that I really have wanted... and deserved. I've been better than you, RVD, but you always eek out that victory. Now two weeks ago, when we fought inside that steel cage, I put my heart and soul into it, that match. But, heh, you and I both know it was all for naught - you were better than me that night! I came in, thinking I would finally get a REAL one-on-one victory against you... but it wasn't meant to be. All I have wanted, Rob, in the past two-plus years... is to be better than you. I want to be the better man, Rob! I want to be the better wrestler than RVD! I want to be the one who gets a moment in the spotlight! But every *fuckin'* time, every single moment of every single day... I am second fiddle to Rob..Van..Dam!

Snarling with disgust as he says his rival's name, Lynn even uses his free hand to thumb taunt with the name. RVD can't help but smirk, the cocky SOB that he is. It just enrages Jerry Lynn even more.

Jerry Lynn: I hate everything about you, Rob! You steal my spotlight, you steal my thunder, you are always better than me! I HATE IT! I CAN'T STAND IT! I HATE YOUR *FUCKIN'* GUTS!

Spit flies as Lynn finishes his rant, his emotions getting the best of him. Lynn, fuming, ....rts to taking deep breaths while RVD takes the time to talk.

Rob Van Dam: Look man, I respect the hell out of you. What you can do in the ring, it's great. There aren't many men in the world who can do what Jerry Lynn can. Heh, but the thing is... I'm one of those guys. I can do everything in the ring that you can... well, Rob Van Dam actually does it better than you.

Rob shrugs his shoulders and grins.

Rob Van Dam: It's been cool and all, brah, you and me putting on classic after classic. But truth be told, Mr. ECW, Mr. Extreme, is getting a little tired of it all, dude. We've torn down the house everywhere we've been, but I think it's high time we start going our separate ways, if ya' know what I'm sayin'. All B.S. aside, the simple truth is this: you're still jealous of Rob Van Dam. You were jealous of me two years ago, and you're still jealous now that when people think of Extreme Championship Wrestling, they think of me.. R..V..D!

Oh Rob, you gloriously cocky bastard. Lynn, of course, is fuming again, but it stops quickly. Instead, Lynn looks for a new tactic.

Jerry Lynn: You can stand here with all your little quips and cool nicknames, Rob, but at the end of the day, it means nothing. Your arrogance, it continues to hold you back from what you could really become. You may have beaten me, Rob, but your ego continues to hold you back when something important is on the line... like the ECW World Title.

Now Rob's confused. Me too, Rob, me too.

Jerry Lynn: Maybe that's it, Rob. When it's a straight-up wrestling match, yeah, you tend to end up beating me. I'll give ya' that, I can't try and justify my losses any more. But despite all of my problems with you, Rob, despite all six of the losses I have suffered at your hands, when there is something that matters on the line, I'm gonna pull through. When I had my shot at the ECW World Title, I took it! What have you done, Rob? You held a second rate title for two years, but what does that really mean? All it means is that when you're in the main event, when you have a chance to be remembered as one of the greats.. you're gonna choke, and you're gonna fail.

Now RVD is really confused. Lynn, you ain't so charismatic, ya' know, and ya' ain't makin' sense!

Rob Van Dam: You're a desperate man, Jerry. You talking freaking nonsense! When I was the TV Champion for almost two effin' years, I beat every single wrestler thrown at me, including you... multiple times. People were sayin' that because of RVD, the Television Title was just as important - maybe even more prestigious - than the ECW World Title. And when I finally had my chance for the "big one" at Living Dangerously, I had the match won. I was about to become ECW World Champion... that is, until you came in and screwed me over. So I don't want to hear any of your little mind games because fact of the matter is, dude, you put your pride on the line two weeks ago - and if you ask me, there's not much more valuable than a dude's pride - and you still weren't as good as the Whole F'n Show!

RVD's calm, poised attitude has evaporated, and in its place, is a fiery dude. He's not one for mind games, and he's certainly not someone who is going to take too kindly to having his ability to win under pressure questioned.

Rob Van Dam: For all my ego, for all my nicknames, for all my big highlight reel moments... I'm a straight shooter. So everyone here can believe me when I say that I am tired of all this talk between us. Quite simply, man, it's put up or shut up time! It's high time that this thing between you and me ends once and for all!

The crowd cheers, wanting to see one last match between two of ECW's greatest workers.

Jerry Lynn: I want nothing more than to have one more match, Rob, to finally get the legitimate victory over you that I've ached for, for far too long now.

RVD nods his head several times, knowing that the rubber match is set to come.

Jerry Lynn: But I have a problem...

Impotence?

Jerry Lynn: Rob, you and I, we could do this forever, don't you see? As long as we are both in ECW, we will continue to be rivals, wanting to one-up each other. That's just the nature of who we are. We can say, "we'll fight one more time, and then we move on," but we really never would. I am the Joker to your Batman, the Lex Luger to your Superman. We will always be enemies.

The confusion continues for Van Dam.

Jerry Lynn: Ya' know, we've talked about "high stakes" and winning when something really important is on the line, and yeah, I put my pride on the line, but that wasn't enough to beat you... but Rob, I can think of something more important than just pride... our livelihoods! This has to end, and there is only one way to do it... Loser LEAVES ECW... forever! I couldn't beat you when it was just pride on the line, and if I can't beat you when my career is on the line, then I will finally know that you are the better wrestler, Rob, that you're better than me!

There's silence for a few moments. Van Dam looks noticeably hesitant by Lynn truly upping the stakes.

Jerry Lynn: This... this is the only way, Rob. There will be no excuses, there will be no interference, there will be, and I mean it this time, just Rob Van Dam... and Jerry Lynn. We can finally find out who is the better man, and this is truly over, once and for all. Winner takes all, loser leaves... forever. I'm willing to put it all on the line, Rob. So what I need to know is... are you? Are you ready to test out who is the real Mr. Extreme? Who is the real Mr. PPV? Who is the real F'n Show?

Lynn, after a few moments, extends his hand to RVD, looking for a gentleman's agreement. RVD continues to look skeptical about whether or not he should accept the challenge - after all, there is everything to lose. After several moments, RVD takes a deep breath, nods his head once, and shakes the hand of Jerry Lynn! Match on, and the crowd erupts!

Rob Van Dam: Hardcore Heaven, pay per view. You and me - Rob Van Dam versus Jerry Lynn - one more match, one final time. In nine days, dude, everything's on the line. It's about our pride, it's about our careers, it's about finding out, once and for all, Jerry, just who is the REAL F'n show. So get ready, man! I don't want you to hold anything back! I've beaten you countless times before, but this time, when we dance one last time, I want to know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Rob Van Dam is better than Jerry Lynn! Let's do this thing, dude!

The crowd continues to cheer like crazy at the match, and at Hardcore Heaven, a two-year long feud will finally come to an end! The two men continue their handshake, but it is clearly both men trying to out-squeeze the hand of the other person, both men sending a message as they stare each other down as Joey Styles wraps up the show.

Joey Styles: OH MY GOD~! The stakes are going to be at the highest level imaginable! Sunday, May 13th! Hardcore Heaven! It's going to be one last time, Rob Van Dam versus Jerry Lynn, one of the greatest rivalries in ECW, and only one man can walk away a winner! Only one man can walk away... still a member of ECW!

ECW on USA: Extreme TV
05-11-01
[64%]

As has become the norm, instead of a normal opening theme and video montage, Extreme TV kicks off with the show going straight into some form of action. The camera is in the backstage area, where a bunch of wrestlers are standing in a line in the hallway, the focal point of the line being a piece of paper attached to a door. A close-up shot reveals that the paper is for sign-ups for the ECW wrestlers to be put into contention for a chance to represent their company against N.I.T.R.O this Sunday at Hardcore Heaven. Balls Mahoney signs the sheet before walking away, while men like Johnny Swinger, Nova, Low-Ki, Danny Doring, Roadkill, Chris Hamrick, Christian York, and Joey Matthews are all in line to sign the sheet. Spike Dudley signs his name as well, and Spanky steps up to sign it next, but is sent running in fear as the reigning ECW World Champion 'The Man Beast' Rhino comes barging through the hallway! Rhino grabs a pen, forcefully signs his name on the paper, and growls, "I'll wrestle all damn night if it means I get a shot at ripping Mike Awesome apart!" Rhino then slams the pen to the ground and storms off, while the show cuts into the ring.

Standing in center of the ring is 'The Voice of ECW' Joey Styles, proudly smiling while holding a microphone. Styles goes into hype mode, talking about the matches for tonight's show, especially the main event that will see Rhino take on Justin Credible in a non-title bout, with Sandman serving as the referee for the match! The focus switches to Hardcore Heaven as Joey Styles says that the N.I.T.R.O group will be allotted a short time block tonight to come to the ring announce their representative for the N.I.T.R.O versus ECW match at the pay per view. Styles says that the PPV will be headlined by the Loser Leaves ECW match between Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn, but that matches have been freshly added to the card - Yoshihiro Tajiri will get a grudge match against Michael Whipwreck, the new team of Kash Money will take on Low-Ki and Nova, and Balls Mahoney will finally get his hands on Simon Diamond! Styles ends his monologue with a cheesy quip about the USA Network being taken to the extreme, and heads out of the ring as "It's All About the Benjamins" by Puff Daddy brings out the newest tag team in Extreme Championship Wrestling, Kash Money. EZ Money and Kid Kash both come out with a new look, Money sporting sparkly silver tights while Kid Kash has matching tights and a sleeveless vest to go along with it. The two men get into the ring and taunt the Dayton, Ohio, crowd to get some cheap heat, and EZ Money's opponent comes out soon after as Tajiri's old theme, Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" brings out Low Ki! The rookie comes out alone, looking to make his mark in his first ever singles match in the company, and he shows zero nerves as he gets into the ring, and right away delivers a stiff swinging kick to Money's chest!

EZ Money (w/Kid Kash) vs. Low Ki [73%]

The green rookie shows his intensity by taking on both Money and Kash as the bell rings, opening up on both men with a plethora of kicks, stinging chops, and open palm strikes. Low Ki shows his intelligence - I feel like Kurt Angle here, come on integrity! - by removing Kid Kash from the ring after a few moments, sending him crashing and burning to the concrete floor by flinging him over the top rope. Low Ki wins the ECW crowd over by getting Money in the corner and reddening his chest with a series of stiff knife edge chops before knocking Money to his butt with a series of kicks before ending the sequence with a nasty looking roundhouse kick! He's not all strikes, as Low Ki scores with several suplexes as well, earning a near fall after a double underhook suplex turned into a back breaker. However, the rookie shows his inexperience when he goes to the top rope too early, trying to flash off his aerial capabilities with a Phoenix Splash, but EZ Money nearly breaks his ribs by getting his knees up into Ki's abdomen! The spot allows the former Hot Commodity man to take the upper hand, and that he does, keeping Low Ki in the corner a lot, working him over with a lot of right hands and whips into the turnbuckles. Money does keep the crowd entertained though, hitting Ki with a tilt-a-whirl head scissors transitioned into a DDT, while also slingshotting himself from the apron, over the top rope and into the ring, into a corkscrew elbow drop, a move that he almost botches but still pulls off thanks to his incredible athleticism. EZ Money tries to lift Low Ki up then for a power bomb, but the rookie fights out of it with right hands, and as he slides off of Money's shoulders, rams his knee into his opponent's face, catching him right in the nose! It sends Money staggering, and Low Ki catches him with a big leaping roundhouse kick that knocks EZ Money down. Following a roar of adrenaline from Low Ki, the rookie picks Money up to his feet, and puts him in a front face lock, about to try and finish him off with the Ki K...her. It doesn't happen though, as Kid Kash hops onto the apron, and saves his partner's neck by springboarding off the third rope and drilling Low Ki with a missile dropkick into his lower back! With Low Ki releasing Money and clutching his back in pain, Kid Kash is able to grab a hold of the youngster and pick him upside down... and into a double underhook piledriver - the Money Maker! Low Ki's head spikes off the canvas, and laughing, Kash exits the ring as EZ Money recuperates in time to pin his opponent. Disgusted, referee Danny Daniels has no choice but to register the count, and EZ Money picks up the victory!

Not sure why he felt the need to leave the ring because as soon as the bell rings, Kid Kash returns to the ring and starts laying the boots to the fallen Low Ki. EZ Money joins in, but the Kash Money beat down doesn't last for long as Dayton, Ohio gets cheering as "Bang Your Head" brings out the sprinting Nova. 'Nasty' Nova runs down the aisle, springboards off the third rope, and knocks down Kash Money with a double clothesline! Coming to his partner's aid, Nova fires off rapid right hands, knocking Money and Kash down repeatedly before spiking EZ Money with a DDT. Kid Kash tries to hold his own on Nova, but the ECW vet gets the Kid Rock lookalike reeling before lifting him up onto his shoulders. Before Kash can taste a Kryptonite Krunch, his partner rescues him, EZ Money pulling Kash off of Nova's shoulders. The two men have had enough, and quickly roll out of the ring and back up the entrance aisle, mouthing words of revenge as Nova helps Low Ki up to his feet. With the two new teams about to do battle in two nights time, revenge is something that could surely happen!

I Need My 'Scripts, Doc! [73%]

A pre-taped segment comes onto the screen, and in a bizarre moment, the camera is filming the door into a doctor's office. Three figures walk into the shot, and it's Simon Diamond, Johnny Swinger, and Dawn Marie! Swinger has an arm around Diamond, and is trying to support Diamond as he walks into the doctor's office, his girlfriend sympathetically rubbing his arm. As the doctor tries to ask what Diamond's problem is, a grimacing Diamond tells his physician of the "intense pain" he is continuing to experience in his back, and that he cannot even perform daily functions such as walking out to get the mail or climb up steps without pain. "Doc, as much as I would love to wrestle at Hardcore Heaven this Sunday, and beat that retched Balls Mahoney, I just don't think my back is going to let me! I'm in no shape to compete!" As Simon feigns pain, the doctor turns away to apparently write him an order preventing him from wrestling for the immediate future. With the doctor looking away, Diamond and Swinger share mischievous smirks, while Dawn lifts her eyebrows up and down in glee. It looks like Diamond will once again be escaping the clutches of Balls Mahoney...

An Odd Twist [58%]

After a commercial break, Extreme TV returns with the former head of the Network, Cy..., standing in the ring. He makes his intentions clear as right away he calls out his former client, Jerry Lynn, in an effort to clear the air between the two of them. Cy... tells Jerry he wants the two of them to put their differences behind them, and for Cy... to be in Jerry's corner at Hardcore Heaven. "Jerry, if you let me back in, the two of us together can finally rid ECW of Rob Van Dam! And you, you Jerry, you will finally be at the top of the spotlight!" Lynn is none to pleased by Cy...' offer, reminding his ex-manager that he wants nothing to do with him. "Cy..., I thought I already made this clear, so allow me to say it once again: I want nothing to do with you! Stay out of my career, and stay out of my life! My match on Sunday, it involves only me, and RVD! Ya' got that?" Cy... tries to defend himself, but Lynn has none of it. "You only want to be involved at Hardcore Heaven because you want the spotlight. You don't give a damn about me! You want to be the focal point of everything! Well, Cy..., you're not gonna be the man who ends Rob Van Dam's career in ECW - it's gonna be me!" Lynn goes on to say that instead of trying to focus on his spotlight, Cy... should be more concerned with controlling his "animal" before Rhino goes crazy. "And Cy..., since you know I'm a straight shooter, I'm gonna let you in on somethin' right now. After I end RVD's career in ECW, you better be on the look-out, 'cause I'm gonna be coming after you and the Rhino to win back the ECW World Title... if of course, your boy can survive Credible and Sandman." As Lynn smirks, Cy... tries to defend himself and his only remaining associate, but the dialogue his cut off as Pantera's "Walk" brings out Lynn's Hardcore Heaven opponent, 'The Whole F'n Show' Rob Van Dam! Marching out to the ring with a purpose, RVD says that he has listened long enough to the B.S. going on in the ring. "You guys talk so much about what's going to happen this Sunday, and what's gonna happen down the road, but the only thing that's gonna happen is two nights from now, I'm going to - yet again - beat Jerry Lynn, and move on from our two-year long feud to win the World Heavyweight Title and become a dual champion in ECW!" Rob mentions his regret that the feud between he and Lynn is going to have to result in one of them leaving ECW forever, "but fact of the matter is, Rob Van Dam is Mr. Extreme! The Whole F'n Show is Extreme Championship Wrestling, and I'm not gonna be forced to leave my home! Jerry, you can talk all you want about stepping up your game to a whole new level to beat me at Hardcore Heaven, but dude, I'm fightin' for my livelihood too, and Mr. Friday Night - Mr. Pay Per View - is gonna do what he does best... win." Rob Van Dam smiles and taunts a little bit, much to the chagrin of Lynn and Cy.... Catching his attention, RVD turns to Cy.... "Oh, and Cy..., after I beat Jerry Lynn on Sunday and come after Rhino and his gold, I'm gonna make sure I kick your teeth in in the process!" That draws a big cheer, and even Jerry Lynn is forced to smirk at the thought. It gets Cy... fuming, who fires back. "You know, if I could have things my way - which I would if I was still in charge of the Network around here! - then both of you would be on your way out of ECW this Sunday! But since that can't happen, I have a few hired guns that are just going to have to make sure neither of you can make to Sunday, or back to ECW ever again!" As Lynn and RVD look on confused, two men roll out from underneath the ring, and blindside the two. It's Da Baldies, Spanish Angel and Tony Devito!

Da Baldies (w/Cy...) vs. Jerry Lynn & Rob Van Dam [77%]

The hired guns clubber away on Lynn and RVD, and 'Extreme Refere' HC Loc enters the ring while the bell is called, making an impromptu match! While Da Baldies both beat down Lynn and RVD, the main eventers fight back. As they come off the ropes from Irish whips, they simultaneously duck clotheslines from Devito and Angel, halt their momentum, and drop their opponents with in-sync jaw breakers! The match stays tornado style as RVD and Lynn surprisingly work well together, RVD whipping Lynn off the ropes and press slamming him onto Devito with a body splash. They link-up again to take Spanish Angel down with a double vertical suplex. With both members of Da Baldies down, both RVD and Lynn head up top, and leap off with stereo-Guillotine leg drops! It's evident that Da Baldies are no match for the two, and the finish is looking moments away until Cy... enters the ring, a steel chair in hand. Cy... swings away at Lynn, but the New F'n Show ducks. As Cy... turns back around, it is directly into a Van Daminator! Down goes Cy..., much to the delight of the ECW crowd! Jerry Lynn boots Devito in the gut, and spikes him with a Cradle Piledriver, as RVD heads up top... FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH! Spanish Angel is on the receiving end of the finisher, but instead of a pin being made, RVD pulls Cy... up to his feet and feeds him to Jerry Lynn... CRADLE PILEDRIVER to Cy...!! With Cy... down and out, Lynn covers Devito, and Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn just secured a tag team victory!

It's a bizarre moment as Stephen DeAngelis announces the two as the winners of the match, and while RVD hops onto the second turnbuckle and celebrates, posing and taunting for the crowd, Jerry Lynn looks at the back of RVD... and then the steel chair on the canvas. With no trace of emotion on his face, Lynn picks up the steel chair, and as RVD hops off the turnbuckle, Lynn charges him. Just as Lynn is about to bend the chair over the skull of the unsuspecting Van Dam, Lynn skids to a halt. The two men stare each other down before Lynn looks at the chair, and throws it down! Lynn walks over to a stagehand, and grabs a microphone quickly. "If I wanted to, you'd be on your ass right now, knocked out! But Rob, I want to be at my best on Sunday when we wrestle, and I want you to be at 100 percent too! So in forty-eight hours, there will be no excuses! It's you and me, one-on-one, and we're gonna find out who the best man is!" Lynn slams the microphone down, and RVD nods his head, ready and waiting for their final clash at Hardcore Heaven. But perhaps, just perhaps, there was a nod of respect towards his long-term rival...

The Match That Wasn't A Match [55%]

After another commercial break, The Full Blooded Italians are making their entrance down the aisle to "Stayin Alive" by N-Trance, Little Guido and Tony Mamaluke both smugly carrying the ECW Tag Team Title Belts, belts which Joey Styles reminds everyone are the property of Danny Doring and Roadkill, the reigning champions. The number one contenders get into the ring for their match with young duo Christian York and Joey Matthews, but instead of the young Carolinian's coming out, it is the FBI's Hardcore Heaven opponents who come charging out from the back! "Danny Doring and Roadkill are here, and they're coming for their stolen Tag Belts!" - Joey Styles. Guido and Mamaluke look frightened as can be as the champions march down the aisle, but Doring leaves Roadkill in the dust as he sprints the rest of the way before diving into the ring. Guido and Mamaluke hightail it out of the ring, rolling out of the ring at separate ends. Roadkill chases after Guido, but he runs around the back end of the ring to Mamaluke, and the slimy Italians hop the barricade and sprint through the crowd, both men still clutching onto the ECW Tag Title Belts. Roadkill gets onto the apron as Big Sal tries to exit the ring, blocking the bodyguard from making a getaway. Doring grabs Big Sal by the back and pulls him back through the ring, holding onto him so Roadkill can hit him a lariat! Big Sal stumbles back into the ropes, and Roadkill then slams him down with a scoop slam! Doring ascends to the top turnbuckle in the process before flying off with the Danaconda Leg Drop! Doring and Roadkill may not have gotten their belts back, but according to Joey Styles, they got some measure of revenge by taking out Big Sal heading into Hardcore Heaven.

The Following Announcement Has Been Paid For By... [68%]

The camera focuses on Joey Styles up in the nest as he promotes the Tag Title match for Hardcore Heaven, while also mentioning that the Loser Leaves ECW match will also have the Television Title on the line. Styles' monologue goes on while the ring is cleared so that when "Street Fighting Man" hits, the ringside area is empty for N.I.T.R.O to arrive. Again, Doug Dillinger and yellow-shirted security clear a pathway through a section of the crowd close to the normal ECW entrance curtain for the group to announce their arrival. Up over the barricade and into the ring they go, Tony Schiavone, Mike Awesome, and Lance Storm. After last week's attack, Storm is sporting a face mask to protect his nose. No surprise that the trio are heckled relentlessly by the Ohio crowd, especially Fat Tony and Awesome. Once they quiet down, Schiavone starts things off, addressing the nose injury Storm picked up last week. The former lead WCW announcer says that the injury came after a "trademark ECW ambush" and that Storm suffered a broken nose at the hands of Justin Credible, and will be unable to represent N.I.T.R.O at Hardcore Heaven. Lance Storm takes the chance to say how much he would have loved to face off with the best ECW had to offer, "because if that would have happened, I would have shown the world how weak and pathetic this joke of a company is by making whichever ECW wrestler faced me tap out... in front of all of their loser fans!" The cheap heat of course works for Storm and his group. Storm quickly adds in that he promises to cripple the entire ECW roster once his Atlanta doctor clears him to wrestle.

Tony Schiavone takes back over on the stick, saying that with Storm out, "I guess that only leaves one man left to represent us at Hardcore Heaven... or does it?" While this writer hopes and salivates about the prospect of Schiavone wrestling in an ECW ring, Mike Awesome gets on the mic. Awesome talks about his phone ringing all week long about guys wanting to come up from Atlanta "to kick some ECW ass on pay per view - right on ECW's turf!" Awesome then says that he knows the whole reason they were allowed out here tonight was to announce their participant in the ECW versus N.I.T.R.O clash, "but I have sad news for all you pathetic bunch of 'smarks': we're not out here to tell you jackwads a damn thing! You bunch of mindless sheep, the ECW roster, and oh yeah, you, Paul Heyman, can wait until Sunday to find out who is gonna be wrestling for us! Because Heyman, you and I both know you're gonna do the same exact damn thing! But don't you worry! On Sunday, just two nights from now, the N.I.T.R.O wrestler, whoever he may be, is going to defeat your ECW sheep! And from that day on, ECW will be known was the inferior company, ECW will be at the mercy of N.I.T.R.O, and not a damn person or thing will be able to stand in the way of N.I.T.R.O taking this company... OVER!" Awesome slams the microphone down with authority, and the N.I.T.R.O contingent leave the ring as Joey Styles badmouths the group, most particularly Mike Awesome, as Extreme TV cuts to a break.

Going To The Extreme

The show returns to The Nest, where Joey Styles is joined on commentary by 'The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer, with Styles talking about the fact that Tommy Dreamer has been invited to perform guest commentary for tonight's main event, as well as the Hardcore Heaven PPV. Tommy talks about not being booked for show on Sunday as of now, but he is hoping that Paul Heyman will choose him as the ECW representative to face off against N.I.T.R.O. As Joey and Tommy talk about Dreamer's storied ECW career and his desire to wrestle on Sunday at the PPV, the two are forced to turn their attention to the ring as the lyrics of LL Cool J surprisingly bring out 'The Extreme Enforcer' CW Anderson! The fans, Styles, and Dreamer alike are all caught surprised by the arrival of Anderson, who just two weeks ago was thrown two stories off a balcony and through a stack of tables. Anderson walks out to the ring, a microphone in hand, a noticeable limp in his stride and slight grimace on his face. He may somehow be here tonight, but he's still not 100% by any means. Dreamer is quite surprised by Anderson's arrival, and is very quiet on commentary, wanting to hear what Anderson has to say. Anderson stares up to the Nest, "Tommy, I know you're up there right now, so sit down, shut up, and listen up, 'cause I got somethin' to say!" Anderson says the fall he took two weeks ago was the most extreme bump he has even taken in his career. "I've been in ECW for a while now, but I ain't ever been takin' to the extreme like that!" Anderson says that when he and Dreamer had their I Quit match at Guilty as Charged, Dreamer had him right at that point, and he got scared shitless. "I'm an old school kind of wrestler, all you gotta do is look at my name and know just what and who I am. I ain't a stuntman. I don't want or like to be thrown off a two-story balcony!" Anderson tells how while he's been at home recovering, sitting on his ass, he has done nothing but watch tapes of himself over the past few weeks, "and ya' know what I saw? I was nothin' but a *pussy*! CW Anderson isn't hardcore! You, Tommy Dreamer, you're hardcore. You ARE ECW. You've bled, you've been broken, and like you've said before, you have literally busted your nuts... all in the name of this company. Me? I've ran away like a little BITCH... all because of some barbed wire!" Anderson says he isn't going to run away any longer. "No longer will I be afraid! I'm not gonna live my life like a coward, being called a chicken*shit* by passerby's in the street. I ran from barbed wire when you took me out two weeks ago, Tommy, so on Sunday, I'm gonna run to you, to a challenge, to a match.. of the most extreme proportions. At Hardcore Heaven, I want you, Tommy Dreamer, one-on-one... IN A BARBED WIRE MATCH!" The crowd explodes at the challenge by Anderson, and Dreamer right away stands at the edge of his nest, nodding his head in vehement acceptance. Match on, baby~!

Having the answer he wanted, Anderson drops the mic and makes his exit while Styles quizzes Dreamer about the challenge he just accepted. Dreamer says he is all about going to the extreme on Sunday, and he'll put Anderson in the most hardcore, violent setting of his life when they're surrounded by nothing but barbed wire. The two talk about the match until "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" hits, bringing out Justin Credible , meaning it is main event time! "Debonaire" brings out the reigning ECW World Champion moments later for this non-title affair, and Cy... is there by his side - still selling the shots he took from Van Dam and Lynn earlier in the night - despite the tumultuous recent history with his client. As "Enter Sandman" hits to bring out tonight's special guest referee, Extreme TV heads to its final break.

Justin Credible vs. Rhino (w/Cy...)
Special Referee: Sandman
[63%]

The match is already in progress as the broadcast returns, and Rhino is beating up on Justin Credible on the outside of the ring, whipping him into the steel barricade before he drops him with a clothesline. The Man Beast, really on edge over the past few weeks, releases some of his pent up f...tration by bending two cookie sheets over the skull of Credible before a DDT onto a bent cookie sheet leaves Credible down. The ECW World Champion spends a good portion of the match beating on Credible, the Impact Player forced to assume a face role, although the crowd spends most of the match cheering for Sandman to fuck everybody up instead. To his credit, the Sandman stays impartial, spending most of the match drinking beer. It does cause a problem though, as he is too busy chugging a beer when Rhino tries to register a pin on Credible following a backbreaker. An argument ensues, and the referee hits Rhino across the face with the beer can before dropping him with a DDT! Sandman plays to the crowd afterwards, and Credible is able to use this opportunity to go to work on Rhino then. A scoop slam subdues Rhino long enough for Credible to bring a steel chair into the mix, and the former champ rocks Rhino across the skull with the chair before using the weapon as an assist for a diving elbow drop from the second turnbuckle! Credible covers, but Rhino kicks out. The action continues back and forth, but with the show pressed on time, the ending is forced to come sooner rather than later. Justin Credible tries to pick Rhino up for his That's Incredible tombstone piledriver, but the Man Beast reverses the move, ending up holding Credible upside down and smashing with a running powerslam. Instead of going for the cover, Rhino gets up to his feet and waits in the corner, crouching as he stalks his prey. While Credible slowly recuperates, Rhino makes sure to glare angrily at Sandman, the camera catching the Man Beast yelling, "this is what I'm gonna *fuckin'* to do you on Sunday, mother*fucker*!" Bad choice by the Man Beast, as Rhino charges right into... CRACK~! Singapore Cane across the face to Rhino by Sandman! The ECW World Champion drops like a sack of potatoes as the crowd erupts into cheers. To make it even better, Sandman then uses the cane on Credible, hitting him across the back before sliding it across his throat - WHITE ...SIAN LEG SWEEP! Both the contestants are down, and Sandman, in his referee shirt, covers both men while registering a pin: ONE! TWO! THREE! It shouldn't count, but this is ECW folks! Sandman, the referee of this match, has just pinned and defeated his two opponents for Hardcore Heaven this Sunday!

As Stephen DeAngelis happily declares the Extreme Icon as the winner of the match, one of Rhino's challengers for Sunday receives the ECW World Heavyweight Title Belt from a stagehand, and raises it into the air with his left arm, starting his celebrations off a little early before the pay per view this Sunday. Sandman makes it clear to all that he intends on winning said title in the three-way dance in forty-eight hours time, pointing at the belt a few times before actually strapping it around his waist. Sandman undoes the belt though right away, and drops it onto the canvas before exiting the ring. Sandman celebrates in the aisle by drinking more beer as Rhino slowly comes to in the ring. He glares at his rival outside the ring, looking like he is about to legitimately go crazy as he starts pulling out his hair and growling/yelling at Sandman. Joey Styles goes into full hype mode for Hardcore Heaven as the two men have a stare down, but right before the show ends, the unsuspecting Rhino, having completely forgotten about the other man in the ring, is suddenly turned around by Justin Credible, and planted with that That's Incredible! Credible takes out Rhino, and Extreme TV ends with Credible holding up the title belt instead! See you at the PPV folks! We get one final shot of Sandman smirking from the aisle, mouthing off to Credible, who holds the belt high into the sky, standing over the fallen champion, Rhino, a man who is seemingly falling to the numbers of challengers coming for his gold...

Default Re: Extreme Championship Wrestling 2001 - Tales of a Jaded Old Man

Hi. Predict and stuff if you want/haven't already read it elsewhere :P

“Well it’s about fucking time.”

Got that right.

Paul Heyman was not a happy man. He had been trying and trying, without success, to simply talk to one man over the past twenty-four hours. The news broke all throughout the internet on Friday, just hours before the taped broadcast of Extreme TV was about to go on the air. The reports were all very clear to understand.

Rob Van Dam, the most marketable star of Extreme Championship Wrestling, was going to sign with the World Wrestling Federation. The same guy who was booked to headline a pay per view tomorrow night in a Loser Leaves Town match - kind of hard to make people buy into a main event when it seems apparent that one of those competitors is already on the way out. If that was the case, Heyman could have booked the storyline in a different aspect.

Of course, he didn’t. Because despite booking a Loser Leaves Town match for a pay per view, he had no acknowledgment that either of the two stars were going to be signing for another company.

Rob Van Dam: “Look man, I’ve been meanin’ to call. It’s been a busy day - sorry...”

A sheepish response if there ever was one.

Paul Heyman: Oh, I’m sure you’ve been busy. Had to sign and initial a lot today, I expect. Gotta get the green, make the millions.

Rob Van Dam: “Dude, I’m sorry! Vince came to me with his biggest offer yet. The amount of money I’m getting, the benefits that will go with it, the chance to rest my body a bit at times along the way... this is too good of an opportunity to pass up. I’m gettin’ older, man. I can’t keep wrestling this style forever. With the WWF, I can kind of tone it down a bit... help my body out.”

Paul Heyman: “That’s all well and good... but don’t you think this is information that you could’ve afforded to give me - I dunno - more than twenty-four hours BEFORE a pay per view!?”

Rob Van Dam: “It was last minute! He just came to me the other day and offered me the deal. I dunno how the press got wind of it - the whole thing blew up online before I even had the chance to get a hold of you.”

Heyman was furious. It was bullshit. RVD could’ve found the time to tell him - he just got too caught up in the money, he knew it. Finding out that your top star is about to leave through the internet is one thing, but to have him stolen out from underneath you hours before he headlines a pay per view and culminates a two-year long feud... that’s just the luck of ECW.

Paul Heyman: “Fuck! ...Tomorrow’s supposed to be huge, Rob! Huge! Your win tomorrow was supposed to solidify your role as the top star in the company, put you as the face of ECW as the storyline with WCW heats up. For fuck’s sake man, this couldn’t have come at a worse time.”

Rob Van Dam: “Believe me, I know. I wish I could change things a bit, but Paul, you have to understand where I’m coming from. This contract is going to help take care of me for a long time. The WWF can help me out in ways you can’t. I don’t wanna wrestle forever. And when I walk away, I wanna still be able to do that - walk. If I stay in ECW for the rest of my career... I dunno if I’ll be able to do that.”

Paul Heyman: “I get it, Rob, really, I do. But your timing is fucking terrible. This fucks things up for me, the pay per view, the company, in a big way.”

Rob Van Dam: “You always knew the risks, Paul. You’ve known from day one that we were always a small pond, and Vince McMahon could reel one of us in. I’m truly sorry to do this to you, and I really will miss working for you - for ECW - but it’s just simply... time... time to go.”

Heyman took a deep breath, still pissed about the situation. What was he going to do about Hardcore Heaven? Rob might as well have read his mind.

Rob Van Dam: “So what do we do about the show tomorrow?”

Paul Heyman: “Well your news is all over the dirt sheets, so all of our fans are already going to know you’re leaving after Hardcore Heaven, whether you win or lose.”

Rob Van Dam: “So do you still want me to win, or should I put Jerry over and give him the win to elevate him... maybe into my role.”

Paul Heyman: “I don’t know yet. I gotta re-figure everything out. I only know one thing for now - we run with this.”

Rob Van Dam: “What do you mean?”

Paul Heyman: “Why hide from the truth? Our fans are going to know that you’re signing with the WWF. So let’s be open about it - what we have always done. You’re leaving, so I’m going to put it out there. The ECW website will read in one hour that Rob Van Dam has signed with the WWF, and will be leaving after Hardcore Heaven, regardless of his match with Jerry Lynn. Announce it before Vince does. Inform all the fans. Let the truth become an angle, if only for one night.”

Rob Van Dam: “Fuck it man, I’m down. I don’t care about doing that for a night. I at least owe you this, to go out the way you need me to.”

Paul Heyman: “Good. It may not be pretty, I’m telling you now... but I think I have a plan.”

And with that in mind, the evil scientist started to stir the Kool-Aid, having to reconfigure a pay per view main event in less than twenty-four hours, and the future of a company too. Try as he might, hate it all he can, he couldn’t avoid the inescapable truth: Rob Van Dam was finally signing with a top company.

ECW Hardcore Heaven Preview

ECW Television Championship - Loser Leaves Town: Rob Van Dam (c) vs. Jerry Lynn
It’s a match that has been over two years in the making. Two men who have wrestled against one another in countless match variations, and have wrestled nine one-on-one matches ever since the two first started putting on their repeated match of the year contenders. Despite the five star matches that the two men have put on, despite the fact that all matches have been even as can be until the very end, the series record does not look good for Jerry Lynn. Lynn has won only two times against RVD, losing an incredible six times, and drawing one. To add salt in Lynn’s wounds, the only time he has been able to defeat RVD has been with the assistance of someone outside of the match. This was proven true on April 20, when Lynn defeated Van Dam inside a steel cage; Rhino and Cy... prevented RVD from winning and gave Lynn the victory. This win came after Lynn had ordered his cohorts to let him wrestle one-on-one. That match resulted in Lynn walking out of Cy...’ Network, and then challenging Rob Van Dam to this epic, final encounter: the winner walks away with the Television Title and bragging rights, and the loser... walks away from Extreme Championship Wrestling for

ECW World Championship - Three Way Dance: Rhino (c) vs. Justin Credible vs. Sandman
Sandman made history at Guilty As Charged when he became the first ever 5-time ECW Champion by defeating Justin Credible and Steve Corino in a Tables, Ladders, Chairs, and Canes match. However, his history-making moment was short lived because ‘The Man Beast’ Rhino then defeated the Extreme Icon moments later to win his first ever World Title. Since ECW’s debut on the USA Network, both Credible and Sandman have been gunning to regain the World Title they have each held (and lost) within the past year. Despite his in-ring dominance, Rhino has been on the receiving end of beatings from both challengers, as well as from the invading N.I.T.R.O member Mike Awesome. If Rhino is going to survive as Champion on Pay Per View, he will have to overcome both challengers as in a three way dance, it’s not one-fall to a finish, but elimination style!

ECW Tag Team Championship: Danny Doring & Roadkill (c) vs. Full Blooded Italians
The graduates of the House of Hardcore, ECW’s training center, Danny Doring and Roadkill are one odd pairing. One is a cocky, loud-mouthed playboy, while the other is a heavyweight Amish boy who doesn’t like to talk! But their time together training to make it in the ECW world have made Doring and Roadkill one of the best teams in all of wrestling, as proven by their five month long reign. However, if there is one team in ECW that is capable of proving to be a better team than the House of Hardcore alumni, then it is the Full Blooded Italians! It was Little Guido and Tony Mamaluke who lost the straps to Doring and Roadkill back in December, and the Sicilian mobsters have been chasing their titles ever since... including stealing the belts on a recent episode of Extreme TV! Doring and Roadkill will enter Hardcore Heaven as the Tag Champions, the FBI will enter holding onto the belts themselves, but who will leave New York as the true best tag team in ECW!?

No Ropes Barbed Wire Match: CW Anderson vs. Tommy Dreamer
It’s the most violent match in the history of wrestling. The ring ropes will be nonexistent, replaced by three ropes of barbed wire. There will be weapons all around the ring... covered in barbed wire. There will be blood. There will be bodies torn apart. There will be chaos, and there will be destruction. Tommy Dreamer is the epitome of Extreme Championship Wrestling; CW Anderson is a young up and comer in wrestling with old-school roots. CW is yet to prove he truly belongs in ECW, having lost to Dreamer in an I Quit match at Guilty As Charged in January, and then running scared from Dreamer over the past month when barbed wire has been out in the open. That resulted in Dreamer chasing Anderson through the arena and shoving him off a twenty-foot balcony through a stack of tables. In a moment that could’ve ended CW Anderson’s career, or at least left him never wanting to return to ECW, The Extreme Enforcer shocked everybody by returning to the company two days ago. Embarrassed of himself for acting like a coward, CW Anderson has decided the time to run scared is over, and he is going to prove to the ECW fans, Tommy Dreamer, and himself that he is extreme! But if he’s going to cement himself as a hardcore superstar, he’s going to have to beat the man who is Extreme Championship Wrestling, Tommy Dreamer!

ECW v.s. N.I.T.R.O: ECW Wrestler vs. N.I.T.R.O Wrestler
It was March 30, the debut of Extreme TV on the USA Network. The main event was Rhino defending the ECW World Title against Tommy Dreamer. Instead of a great match having a fitting ending, the pilot episode was thrown into complete chaos as Mike Awesome, a former ECW World Champion but infamous ex-employee, arrived to put both men through tables. If that wasn’t enough, he announced an invasion of ECW! Former wrestlers of ECW’s hated rival from Atlanta, Georgia, the N.I.T.R.O contingent has been using stealth and ambushes to arrive and cause mayhem on ECW shows for the past two months. Lance Storm feigned signing with ECW, only to attack Justin Credible and Sandman and align himself with N.I.T.R.O. Tony Schiavone, the longtime voice of the former Ted Turner company, showed up to announce that not only would N.I.T.R.O invade ECW on USA, but also on Pay Per View! That challenge was greeted head-on by Owner and Executive Producer of the company, Paul Heyman, and an open challenge has been accepted by both sides! For the first time ever, ECW and N.I.T.R.O will collide in the ring in a one-on-one match, with each side selecting a wrestler to represent them. Will Mike Awesome or Lance Storm be competing once again in an ECW ring, or has Schiavone recruited yet another member to invade our company? And who will represent ECW!? Almost the entire roster has signed a sheet to volunteer for this match, from Rhino to Tommy Dreamer to young rookie Spanky! The pride of ECW is on the line at Hardcore Heaven!

Michael Whipwreck vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri
Sinister Minister’s Unholy Alliance was a tag team that were former ECW Tag Champions, and a force to be reckoned with inside the ring. With the evil mind of Sinister Minister, the experience of Mikey Whipwreck, and the innovative style of Yoshihiro Tajiri, the sky was the limit for the team of the occult. However, after yet again failing to recapture the Tag Titles at Living Dangerously, thanks in part to miscommunication by the partners, Whipwreck surprisingly turned on Tajiri and Sinister Minister. Having believed he ran the two off from ECW, Whipwreck has become a changed man over the past month and a half. Gone is the long, shaggy red hair, instead replaced by his former short, brown hair. Gone is the baggy attire, replaced by more “traditional” wrestling tights. Gone even is the Mikey name fans have known for seven years, replaced by a more “proper” name, Michael Whipwreck. The new-look, obnoxious Whipwreck was stunned when Tajiri and his manager returned on a recent edition of Extreme TV, and the Japanese Buzzsaw is now out for revenge in a grudge match against the former partners!

Balls Mahoney vs. Simon Diamond
Ever since Balls Mahoney defeated sidekick Johnny Swinger, Simon Diamond has been out to one-up Mahoney. However, the self-proclaimed Problem Solver has been dodging Balls at every turn. Whether it’s running scared whenever Mahoney telegraphs a Diamond sneak attack, replacing himself in a tag match with Swinger, or claiming a back injury, it seems that Simon Diamond is afraid of Big Balls. However, the time for running is just about up for Diamond as the two are set to meet in the ring at Hardcore Heaven... unless Simon has yet another trick up his sleeve!

Kid Kash and EZ Money vs. Nova and Low-Ki
Having left the company at the start of the year, Kid Kash and EZ Money made a surprising return a few weeks ago in a tag team gauntlet match to try and earn an ECW Tag Team Title match at Hardcore Heaven. However, the new Kash Money team were thwarted by ‘Nasty’ Nova and his partner, the debuting rookie, Low Ki! That did not sit well with the upstart tag team, and Kash Money will now try to get their payback with a victory at Hardcore Heaven! Is this the start of a promising future for Kash Money, or can Nova and his rookie partner make lightning strike twice!?

Haven't really been following this thread, but I've read the Trio Ownership and loved it, so I thought I'd get into this one too. Anyway, here we go:

Hardcore Heaven Predictions


ECW Television Championship - Loser Leaves Town: Rob Van Dam (c) vs Jerry Lynn
-With RVD leaving, I don't see any way he wins. This does feel a little too obvious though.

ECW World Championship - Three Way Dance: Rhino (c) vs Justin Credible vs Sandman
-Rhino just won the belt, I can't see him losing it this quickly.

ECW Tag Team Championship: Danny Doring & Roadkill (c) vs Full Blooded Italians
-I don't really have a rationale for this. I just think they'll get their belts back.

No Ropes Barbed Wire Match: CW Anderson vs Tommy Dreamer
-Anderson will lose, but he'll do it in a way that earns the respect of the ECW faithful.

ECW v.s. N.I.T.R.O: ECW Wrestler vs. N.I.T.R.O Wrestler
-While I have no speculation towards who either wrestler will be, I think N.I.T.R.O's guy has to win in order to intensify this feud.

Michael Whipwreck vs Yoshihiro Tajiri
-With the changed attitude and new name, Whipwreck's going to make Tajiri his first victim.

Balls Mahoney vs Simon Diamond
-Diamond will pick up the win under shady circumstances.

Kid Kash and EZ Money vs Nova and Low-Ki
-This one could easily go either way, but a big victory like this could help advance Low-Ki's young career.
