ECW World Heavyweight Champion: Taz
ECW Television Champion: Rob Van Dam
ECW Tag Team Champions: Spike Dudley & Balls Mahoney

ECW Hardcore TV: Episode 328
August 7th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The show opens with Jerry Lynn pinning Jason with a cradle piledriver, but before he can celebrate the Impact Players rush out and beat him down. Credible cane’s him in the head, busting him open.

Joey Styles is in the ring and welcomes us to the show, he says we are counting the days until ECW makes its debut on national TV. He brings out the tag team champions, Joey says they have an open challenge to any tag team in the world, on one condition. They have to face them in a no-rules, extreme death match. Balls says to bring out any tag team with the BALLS TO FACE THEM. Suddenly, Axl Rotten comes out. He says not a lot has changed since he’s been gone, Philly still has the sickest fans in wrestling, he says a couple of months ago he and balls made a promise, and that promise was if they didn’t beat the Dudleyz they would come back and kick the shit out of one another. WELL, he’s here to FIGHT! Joey asks can he ask a question, and Axl says no you can’t ask me a question, what do you want to know?:lmao Joey asks who his partner is……………NEW JACK!!!! HOLY SHIT! I LOW-KEY MARKED OUT! I’m a sucker for mesh up tag matches.

Extreme Death Match for the ECW Tag Team Champions: Spike Dudley & Balls Mahoney vs. Axl Rotten & New Jack
Jack gives no fucks and beats the shit out of Spike, as Balls and Axl just watch on. Jack brings out a fuckin staple gun and staples Spike in the head. Axl begins forking the shit out of Balls’ forehead as we go to a commercial. When we return, everyone is bloodied and beating the shit out of one another. All 4 brawl to where the stage is and Spike hits an acid drop to New Jack through a table which had balls on it. They fight back to the ring, where Balls brings out a table and lighter fluid. He lights the table and spinebusters Axl through the table for the win. After the match; All 4 show mutual signs of respect, FUCK THAT NEW JACK punches Balls. Axl murders Balls with a chair shot, he places a table in the crowd and Jack puts spike through it with an elbow off the top.

In the ring, Justin Credible is cane’ing D-Von, but Lynn runs down to get him some. Lance then makes the save followed by Buh Buh. All fight, okay then. Joey then recaps things saying a dream partner six man tag. The Impact Players chose Jerry Lynn, and when the Dudleys refused to pick one, RVD was chosen for them.

It then cuts to Lynn/RVD doing their counter wrestling thing, with the Dudleyz in one corner and Kamala and Credible in the other. Okay, then. I guess that match was god awful as they cut to post-match fuckery, Joel, who has finally taken the neck brace off is in the ring, The Dudleyz are mad and hit him with a 3D. RIP! AMAZING 20 MINUTE PRE-MATCH PROMOS :mj2 The crowd begins celebrating and thanking the Dudleyz.

After a commercial, we again cut to finish of that dream 6 man match, what the fuck is going on?

Guido comes out and says he is the only man in ECW to make him tap, and he wants his World Title match. And slaps Tajiri in his jaw (I should mention, Tajiri has his jaw and throat taped up)

Tajiri (w/Steve Corino & Jack Victory) vs. Little Guido (w/Big Sal E. Graziano & Tony DeVito)
For some reason, Guido controls the majority of the match with his awful “tough guy”/” little man syndrome” gimmick. Like this match goes 7 minutes and Guido has 5-6 of those minutes. Tajiri’s offense is mostly kicks, but they’re amazing so I’ll give this terrible booked match a pass. GuIdio hurts his leg on a leg drop so Tajiri targets it before locking in a clover leaf and Guido taps. **1/4

DeVito and Sal come in after the match to protect GuIdio, but suddenly DeVito turns on Sal and hits him with a steel chair. Corino and co begin beating on Sal. Corino grabs the mic and asks if they're happy now. He says this is another two victims of stupid hardcore wrestling. He says it doesn’t have to end Dreamer, he says Tommy is sitting and watching what he Sal is feeling. Corino says Tommy can sit with his slut, and wish he could be him and a superstar that he will be on TNN. But he's just a mark now like everyone else in the crowd on the other side of the guard rail unable to do anything. And if he could, he'd beat him like at Heatwave, Tommy and Francine come through the crowd and get onto the apron. Corino says to get in here and let him pin him like he offered at Heatwave, and he can be the INNOVATOR OF EVERYTHING! Tommy asks if he wants to end his career and be famous. Corino says yeah, and Tommy says they can end his career but he's taking one of them with him. Tommy fights everyone and breaks the Japanese flag on Victory's leg. Tommy and Francine put Victory and Corino in Stereo Figure Fours. BUT TAJIRI SPRAYS GREEN MIST IN FRANCINE'S FACE! :mark: Tajiri then kicks Tommy in the face, DeVito brings a table in and they put Tommy on it………….BUT TAZ COMES OUT! Corino, Victory and Tajiri bail, but Tommy grabs DeVito ankle. He tries to Powerbomb Taz, but he lifts him up and hits the Alabama Slam through the table instead. Corino has the mic and says he can kill Tony all he wants, but he'll never kill him. BECAUSE I’M STEVE CORINO. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. KEEP THE TITLE IF I LET YOU :lmao:lmao:lmao Taz says no, no, no you stupid fuck. I AM THE WORLD CHAMP! WCW, WWF, JAPAN, CANADA, IT DOESN’T MATTER MOTHERFUCKER! BEAT ME IF YOU CAN, SURVIVE IF I LET YOU!

ECW Hardcore TV: Episode 329
August 14th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Closing segment from last week's show airs.

Then they air the Jason/Jazz match from Heat Wave ’99 in full, fuck off. Also RIPHardcore TV Streak of good shows. To make matters worse Joey says we’re getting the rematch next week. FUCK EVERYTHING!

Simond Diamond makes his debut, he says Simond has a problem, you see the authorities in the back say he needs a tag partner, personally, I don’t feel I need a tag partner to beat a superhero wannabe and a Ricky Morton look alike. But, rules are rules. He asks Tom Marquez…..but says he didn’t say Simond says so no. He then calls for anyone in the back………SUPER CRAZY comes out.

Nova & Chris Chetti vs. Simond Diamond & Super Crazy
Well to waste Crazy’s talent on these 3 fucktards. When we return the match has already begun, Crazy does some dives and Simond adds nothing along with Nova and Chetti. Diamond keeps referring to himself in the third person, refuses to let Crazy win because he wants to win his debut so hits him with the three Moonsaults and leaves, allowing Nova and Chetti to hit the double splash off the top for the win. Blah.

Replay of Tajiri turning on Taz.

Taz says he can hear the scream now, he can hear Tajiri screaming in Japanese for him to release the most vicious hold in the business. He says everybody said he went too far at Heatwave and crossed the line, but he didn't. People ask why he didn't just make him tap in the ring, 2 reasons. 1, I didn’t want it to go down like that and 2, you picked the fight in Queens, brutha. so he feels the fight should end in Queens. Taz says he often thinks about Corino and wonders about Steve Corino's little brain, but he likes his little game they have. And that's real bad for him. The barbed wire deal was nothing and Tajiri is dead in Queens. He’s gonna make his tap out and he wants Corino to do one thing, take his hand and put it on his throat and squeeze, feel the pain. He tells Corino that that's what he's got coming when he chokes the life out of him. You can pull your own hand off your own throat, but who's gonna pull his hands off Corino's throat. Tajiri is in a world of shit. WHERE I’M FROM! IT’S KILL OR BE KILLED! I’M TAZ THE ECW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! BEAT ME IF YOU CAN, SURVIVE IF I LET YOU!

ECW Tag Team Champions: Spike Dudley & Balls Mahoney

ECW Hardcore TV: Episode 330
August 21st, 1999
Toledo, Ohio

WHY THE FUCK ARE WE OPENING UP WITH THE FINISH BETWEEN A Uganda/Kamala match vs. Spanish Angel?

Joey Styles welcomes us to the show, he says the Dudleyz have signed with the WWF. But first, ECW are gonna show us the footage of the Dudleyz regaining the tag team titles in Cleveland.

Fan Cam Footage: Spike/Balls vs. The Dudleyz for the tag titles, Buh Buh powerbombs Spikes off a bar table through a table. He then drags Spike up to the balcony with the fans and beats the shit out of him, Buh Buh then starts challenging the fans which gives Spike the opportunity to come back on him. They brawl around the building and eventually make their way back to the ring. Buh Buh throws a steel guard rail onto Spike but when he steps on the rails and Spike he slips to a huge “You Fucked Up” chant. Spike comes back and hits an acid drop onto the same rails on the floor moments later. Spike then leaves to climb the balcony and hits a crossbody to Buh Buh on the floor. The Dudleyz continue to beat up Balls and Spike in the typical ECW/Dudleyz fashion. Buh Buh complains about a slow count so they try to beat up the ref Jim Molineaux, but he counters and gives them a double clothesline. Spike and Balls hit their stereo finishers but Sign-Guy breaks it up with a loaded sign shot. Spike again goes for an Acid Drop but Buh Buh throws him off and through a table on the floor. Balls destroy’s them with chair shots. He puts a table up with thumbtacks on it but gets Powerbombed through it. Spike then crawls in so the Dudleyz 3D him and cover for the win.

Joey hypes up the possibility of the Dudleyz handing over the belts to Vince McMahon and the WWF.

The Dudleyz are in the bathroom, Buh Buh says in a promotion filled with misfits, in a promotion full of outcasts, you're looking at three brothers from Dudleyville, the biggest misfits and the biggest outcasts this world has ever seen. Goofy guys wearing glasses with tape and tie-dyed shirts, but goofy guys who did it their way. They gave their notice and everyone knows the Dudley Boyz are on their way out, but the question is “Are we gonna do the ring thing by ECW?” The Public Enemy passed the torch to the Gangstas who passed it to the Eliminators who passed it to Sabu and Van Dam. Me and D-Von took the torch from everybody. They're not doing the right thing. They're not doing the job. He's not putting anybody over, D-Von isn’t putting anybody over. They're the greatest tag team to ever step foot in an ECW ring and they plan to keep it that way. Now, they're doing something they should have done a hell of a long time ago. They're taking the belts, heading on I95 and heading to the capital of hardcore wrestling, Stamford, CT. They're going to the front door, up the elevator to the top and to the office of the man that means EVERYTHING in professional wrestling. To the office of the man that's going to make them millionaires and let them do whatever they please. To the office of their hero and savior, Vince McMahon. They're going to take the belts and lay them at his feet and give him their souls because the people don't deserve to see the Dudley Boyz here ever again. And if you ever want to see these titles again, all you have to do is tune into WWF Monday Night RAW. Now get the hell outta here.

Backstage: Cyrus is with Lance Storm, Dawn Marie, Justin Credible, and Jason. Cyrus says he carried Joey on commentary, but now he’s just a stand-in for…..Steven Prazak. OH, MY GOD! Justin says he and Lance have just become America’s most wanted and everyone is gunning for them. When you think we’re going high, we’re going low, when you think we’re ahead, we change the directions. Lance says everyone asks how you beat 10 guys to take over a company, but they make 10 guys beat themselves. Divide and conquer. Nobody can stop them. That's not just the coolest or the best, but that's just incredible.

Rhino vs. Tom Marquez
FUCK YEAH! Rhino, he’s still a little green so his squash matches aren’t the same as it would be in 2000 ECW or even WWF pre-broken neck. Anyway, Rhino beats the shit out of him and curses the whole time. He hits this gross looking piledriver and covers for the win.

Jason pulls up on Rhino in the back and congratulates him on his match, he says he has a problem and would like him to deal with. Corino then rushes over and congratulates him too, Jason then cuts in with “I need someone taken out” so Corino says who. Tazz? Jerry Lynn? RVD? Sabu? Jason says no, his problem is a little more ferocious and vicious...JAZZ. Corino sends Rhino to the back and Corino says he’ll do it, Jason then hands him, someone. Corino says he’ll do it BECAUSE HIS NAME IS CORINO. I GOT THE CASH, AND I’M GONNA TAKE OUT THE GASH :lmao Victory is happy and Corino says the camera's on, so he goes back to faking his injury and sits back in the wheelchair.

Backstage: Fonzie is with RVD, he says they call him Mr. Friday Night and on this show, Mr. Syndication. RVD says this isn't a re-run with him talking about him defending the TV Title because he's had this for decades and it's the longest title reign ever. RVD says he's doing what comes naturally to him and that's smoking the competition. Basically, THE WHOLE FUCKIN’ SHOW!

RVD video package airs.

Lance Strom and Dawn Marie video package airs, the way ECW is hurting for content right now :lmao

Jazz vs. Steve Corino (w/Jack Victory & Rhino)
This happens, smh. This goes 5 minutes, Corino bumps and sells a shit ton for her before he just stops. Tommy and Francine come out to cheer on Jazz, Corino constantly eggs on Tommy for a fight, during this Rhino sets up a table in the corner but as he goes Alabama slam she rolls through, he taunts her for not finishing so she grabs his balls. She begins to attack his nuts so Victory makes the save, that leads to Francine making the save. The woman hit stereo bronco busters a and DDT’s for the win. SMH! After the match; the girls hug and celebrate. BUT FUCK THAT! TAJIRI hits the ring, he kicks Tommy in the face and sprays red mist in the face of Jazz and Francine. Tajiri hits Tommy with the Tree of Woe Dropkick and they lay the Japanese flag over Tommy him. Corino does Tommy's pose and Taz runs out to end the show. *3/4

ECW Wrestling on TNN: Episode 1
August 27th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

So here it is, the DEBUT show on TNN. I think you know the story by now, Heyman hated the first show which took place in Toledo, he thought the crowd sucked. yeah, that’s right. Heyman tried to have his first show on a network take place in a place he’s never been before. JESUS Christ. So, as a result, we get a clips/best of show. YAY!

The show opens with Balls being put through a flaming table for the first time in Philly, Joey Styles says this is not WCW, this is not WWF, THIS IS ECW!

Joey gives a list of all past wrestlers to hold the ECW TV Championship, they then air RVD/Lynn from Hardcore Heaven in full, a couple of edit jobs but for the most part, it’s aired in full, well that’s 20 minutes of the show done.

Joey then namedrops all the wrestlers that are now in WCW and WWF, that have never won the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. They then air the Douglas throwing down the NWA title again. Oh look at that, this happens on August 27th, 1994. UGH!

Taz/Rhino airs from the June 26th, 1999 show in Villa Park, Illinois.

A video package on Sabu airs, he’s still BANNED IN THE UNITED STATES! That is unless you go to any live ECW event or order any of their PPV’s. BUT HE’S STILL BANNED!

Spike vs. Big Sal from a Queens show airs.

Backstage: Jason introduces himself as the sexiest man on earth, Justin Credible then announces himself as the one-man crime spree, Lance Strom says he’s the greatest natural athlete in this sport or any other. HI, I’m his personal bitch, BYTCH! Honey, I’m a star on TNN, how do you spell that :lmao Cyrus say’s he’s the host of ECW on PPV and boost the ratings. He says he can’t get the camera time or mic time, but he’s okay with that and will get over regardless. Clips air of them beating up everyone.

ECW video package airs of the current roster in ECW, with highlights and names under.

Taz says all the talk is about ECW and TNN, he says think about the guys that take Hardcore and Extreme to another level. Chair shots, barbed-wire, flaming tables but when the smoke clears. It’s just me standing with the two most vicious weapons in the business, THESE HANDS! I don’t need a weapon, you can ask all the “Superstars” that have stepped foot in this company. Chris Jericho, Shane Douglas, Bam Bam Bigelow, 2 Cold Scorpio, Chris Candido and Jerry Lawler. He says he’s the guy your mother warned you about, he say’s he's not a role model. And will not be in the media with celebrities. Taz says he will dump anyone on their heads and choke them out, why? BECAUSE I’M TAZ, THE ECW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. BEAT ME IF YOU CAN, SURVIVE IF I LET YOU!

Hey doesn’t he sign a WWF contract in the next 2 weeks 8D

Terrible debut show, just gonna name drop all the “rival companies top talent names” no wonder TNN want out so fast and the company died.

ECW World Heavyweight Champion: Taz
ECW Television Champion: Rob Van Dam
ECW Tag Team Champions: The Dudley Boyz

ECW Hardcore TV: Episode 331
August 28th, 1999

Recap of the Corino/Jazz match and the aftermath, it picks up where the show ended, Taz comes out and Tazplex’s Rhino through a table. He grabs a mic and says, TAJIRI! IN 7 DAYS BROTHA! I’MA DUMP YOU ON YOUR HEAD AND YOU WILL TAP OUT! I am the guy your mother warned you about. Beat me if you can, survive if I let you.

Joey Styles welcomes us to the show, they then air the Rhino squash from last week again in full.

Backstage: Danny, Roadkill, and Miss Congeniality, she says Roadkill smells and Doring calms her down and says he's working on a farm all day. Chickens.

Backstage: Steve Corino, Tajiri, Rhino and Jack Victory are in a hallway. Corino says before my time in the childhood of Jack Victory, there was a television show called Barnaby Jones. He comes close he'd come this close every time to catching his man, but when he got that close, the bad guys ould run him off the road yell "DIE! YOU SON OF A GUN!" Case and point, they must be THIS close, because Tommy Dreamer tried to cripple Jack like Christopher Reeve, but Jack Victory is his Superman. He says Taz should be put in jail for assault, he tried to put out the hottest rookie in professional wrestling and Tommy Dreamer and Taz and Super Crazy are all gunning for the Japanese Buzzsaw. Because they're THIS close and sooner, not later, they're going to be on top in ECW.

Tajiri (w/Steve Corino & Jack Victory) vs. Super Crazy
This is really good as usual, granted it’s like beating a dead horse but now with Tajiri as this dick heel they have that element added. We, for the most part, get the usual spots and dives, but with Tajiri as the heel, he leads the match and everything is slowed down and the dives along with the high impact spots are allowed to breathe after. Both men bump well, with little to no selling at all and with that being said they know one another so well that neither man really has control for a long period of time or even longer than 2 moves. At one point, Corino and Victory tries to interfere but that backfires, that allows Tajiri to recover so when Crazy rolls in Tajiri sprays green mist in his face, double dropkick to the face and a brainbuster for the win. **3/4

ECW Tag Team Championships: The Dudley Boyz (w/Sign-Guy Dudley) vs. Spike Dudley & Balls Mahoney
This is the usual stuff they don’t really add new stuff to their matches, it’s just great brawling. Spike dives off a ladder onto all 3 as we go to a commercial, once we return everyone is bloodied and we go into the usual pairing. BuhBuh/Spike on the floor and brawl through the crowd which they do so well. Balls/D-Von in the ring and D-Von brings out the cheese grater to use before they have their own brawl in the crowd. Buh Buh’s shit talking and kissing up to Vince is hilarious, he randomly shouts out “Vince, I love you” and “I know Vince respects us” this is really long like the whole match is like 20+ minutes. The Dudleyz hit an inverted 3D but Balls kick out, they then go into the Molineaux spot but the Dudleyz doesn't bump for him this time :lmao Balls and Spike sneak rolls them up for two, they then hit a series of moves for a close near falls. Balls and Spike hit the Nutcracker and Acid Drop in stereo finisher but Sign-Guy whacks the ref and breaks up the count. They then build a stack of tables on top of one another on the floor, they try to put Sign-Guy through but the Dudleyz break it up. Buh Buh THEN LIGHTS BOTH TABLES ON FIRE AND HE POWERBOMBS SPIKE THROUGH THEM! HOLY SHIT! Buh Buh continues to look down at Spike on the apron, D-Von then grabs a chair and as Buh Buh holds onto Balls, as D-Von swings Balls ducks and Buh Buh gets hit with the chair knocking him off the apron. Balls then hits the Nutcracker suite and covers D-Von for the win. ***


The Dudleyz get a standing ovation before getting “Na, Na, Na” sung towards them.

ECW Wrestling on TNN: Episode 2
September 2nd, 1999
Queens, New York

ECW World Heavyweight Championship: Tajiri (w/Steve Corino & Jack Victory) vs. Taz
Fun 4-minute sprint as KIF would say, Taz is out for blood, so he’s super aggressive as usual. Tajiri is Tajiri, great kicks, and bumps. The match is back and forth, I love that Taz has Tajiri’s high kicks scouted so everything Tajiri throws them Taz catches the leg and suplexes him. Taz practically knocks Tajiri unconscious before further caving in his face with a series of forearms. They have this awesome counter sequence gif is below before Taz locks in the Tazmission for the win. **1/2


Joey Styles is in the ring and welcomes us to the show, interrupted by Joel Gertner. He say’s he’s now the TNN color commentator and the true host of this program……..Joel “I’m just like a Rubik's Cube, the more you play with it the harder it gets” Gertner. Joey brings out Jerry Lynn to talk NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Lynn says he didn’t come here to waste time and cut a boring promo like they do on Monday nights. He says TNN is in the house and he’s here to show the difference between WCW/WWF and ECW. Jesus :lmao Lynn says tonight he wants to bring us the best match in wrestling…….SO ROB VAN DAM! I challenge you for your title. Fonzie comes out and says Lynn is never getting a title match and slaps him so RVD runs out for the save, they have this mini-brawl which gets broken up but security.

Joel says this is the Dudleyz last night and Lynn/RVD next week.

ECW Tag Team Championships: The Dudley Boyz (w/Sign-Guy Dudley) vs. Spike Dudley & Balls Mahoney
This is the usual, but really good as it’s toned down on the violence and is only 6 minutes or so. All 4 brawl, we get the usual pairing too BuhBuh/Spike do fun stuff while D-Von/Balls occupy the ring. Once we come back from a commercial, Balls, and Spike hit the acid drop/nutcracker suite in stereo but the Dudleyz kick out. They go for it again, but Buh Buh throws spike off through the timekeeper's table on the floor. Balls then murders them with chair shots, D-Von’s seizure selling makes a return :mark: Balls sets up a table with thumbtacks, but the numbers are too much and Buh Buh powerbombs him through the table………SPIKE MAKES THE SAVE! But the Dudleyz hit him with a 3D and cover for the win. EIGHT TIME-TAG CHAMPIONS! **1/2


Joey Styles says we are witnessing a black day in ECW, suddenly the tape cuts and the Dudleyz are back in the ring. Buh Buh says in ECW, boys become men. In ECW, men become heroes but in the WWF…..HEROS BECOME LEGENDS! And legends become GODS! And if GOD was a heel he would be the Dudley Boyz. So before we take these belts to the true city of hardcore wrestling, Stanford, Connecticut. Buh Buh says there’s one more thing we gotta do, now that we’ve beaten this company it’s time to ruin this company and suck the life, blood, the soul, and the backbone of ECW right out and something they should have finished a long time ago. He calls out Tommy Dreamer to get his broken back and useless piece of dog trash to defend this 6-year-old company. Tommy comes out, as Paul E. tries to stop him, we then cut to a video package of Tommy highlights. Francine comes out and Buh Buh says oh look another two-dollar whore just happen to show up, Joel then asks Joey to borrow a dollar 85, something just came up :lmao:lmao:lmao Buh says we’re taking these belts and throwing them down on national TV. Buh brings up Beulah and says when she was laid up in the hospital paralyzed from the neck down, he and D-Von taught her the real meaning of double team:lmao:lmao wait isn’t that RAPE? Tommy has heard enough and hits the ring, the bell rings and I guess we got a match.

ECW Tag Team Championships: The Dudley Boyz (w/Sign-Guy Dudley) vs. Tommy Dreamer (w/Francine)
More of an angle than a real match, but it’s enjoyable. Tommy uses weapons as a partner and has some success early on. The numbers catch up on Tommy and Buh Buh whips him into the ladder and hits a back suplex right on his neck. They replay that for at least 45 seconds so we some jobber faces trying to save Tommy as they’re laid out on the outside now. The Dudleyz proceed to beat the shit out of Tommy, Sign-Guy tries to get them to stop but they shove him down. FUCK YEAH! they go for 3D but Tommy counters the lift into a DDT……………………….HOLY FUCKING SHIT RAVEN HITS THE RING AND HITS AN EVENFLOWS DDT’S BUH BUH! He and Tommy both cover for the win. After the match; Tommy turns around and Raven gives him the belt. Styles hypes this moment up as a nightmare for Dreamer. Dreamer has finally won a World Championship in wrestling, but he has to share it with his biggest rival in history.

September 4th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

LATE BREAKING NEWS: Raven Returns To ECW.

Joey Styles is in the ring and welcomes us to the show; he says we’re 2 weeks away from Anarchy Rules live on PPV :lmao ECW are so bad at promoting PPV’s. He says his guest at this time will defend the ECW World Championship…….He brings out Taz. Styles says FMW has sent Masato Tanaka to challenge him for the title :mark: Taz says Tanaka is one bad motherfucker. He says we’ve seen him take those hard chair shots to his hard head, Taz says he’s gonna need that hard head because he’s gonna dump him on his fucking head. And then when he's done, he's gonna hook on the most feared hold in the business and he's going to tap out. He's not a 50-year-old champion wearing gold and red, or yellow and black, or shriveled up wrestling for his ego. You see, brotha this isn’t 1989 it’s the year 2000 :hm: And I’m not a guy that has to come out here with a chick, six foot two FAKE tits hanging out saying you’re a wold champion. TAZ then challenges Triple H :lmao:lmao Oh this is hilarious considering what happens in the future :lmao He says he remembers his roots, BROOKLYN NEW YORK! AND THE OTHER SOUGH PHILLY! Taz says he has been here for 6 years he’s watched everyone come through that door and leave over and over again. But I’m still here, then you got boys in the back refusing to work with Taz because he’s stiff brotha, well guess what. Tanaka ain’t gonna go fucking bitch to Paul E. He tells a fan to shut the fuck up and says he will beat the living shit out of him. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE I GET MY HANDS ON TANAKA! BEAT ME IF YOU CAN, SURIVIE IF I LET YOU!

Video airs of Raven/Tommy’s first one-on-one match.

Video airs of Tommy piledriving Beulah.

Axl Rotten vs. Balls Mahoney
This is exactly what you would think a Balls/Axl match would be like. They proceed to beat the shit out of one another and get really gross with it. Axl grabs a pair of fucking scissors from a fan in the front row and begins stabbing and slicing Balls forehead with it WHAT THE FUCK!?! They both roll back into the ring and brags steel chairs. But New Jacks’ music hits and he comes out to make this a 3-way dance.


Axl Rotten vs. Balls Mahoney vs. New Jack
Jack pulls out a spike and begins stabbing both men because yeah, ECW. Back from a commercial and Balls hits a the Nutcracker suite and pins Jack :lmao Balls challenges Axl and takes 3 unprotected chair shots from Axl which only knock him down to his knees. The forth knocks him down but only gets a 2, Axl yells at him to say down as the crowd chair for tables so Axl places a trashcan on Balls head and nails him with the chair for the win. They hug after the match.

Video airing of Stevie and Raven beating up Luna and Tommy, then Raven breaking Tommy’s fingers.

Video of Beulah's “pregnancy” announcement.

Video of Tommy finally pinning Raven at the ECW Arena in Philly.

Steve Corino and Tajiri are in the ring, Corino says someone here is the most overrated wrestler of all time and a pathetic excuse for a man, AND HE'S TALKING ABOUT YOSHIHIRO TAJIRI. NO. Tajiri just raises his arm up, not understanding English :lmao Corino says he promised the people and the world that he would defeat Taz and bring him the World Heavyweight Title, and he failed. Corino yells that he hates Chinese food and there's too much MSG in his food, so that makes him still hungry. He also hates the starch in his shirts and they've ruined convenience stores too so he can’t even get a fresh sandwich. Tajiri claps and cheers so Corino yells “I HATE YOU” and slaps him. Rhino and Jack Victory come to protect Corino, and Super Crazy comes in. SUDDENLY! Tajiri kicks Crazy in his head, IT’S A SET UP :mark: They bury him under the Japanese flag and Corino now says the greatest wrestlers come from Japan and the worst wrestlers come from Mexico. They go to leave, but Crazy is back up and dives on them off the top turnbuckle and then the bell rings.

Super Crazy vs. Tajiri
Like 4 minutes, it’s fine. I’m gonna continue blowing Tajiri because he is GOD! He spits at Hawaiian shirt, straw hat guy which makes him my favorite ECW wrestler of all time now all I need is for him to push Green Lantern fan and he’ll be top 5 all time. Not much to write about after that, it’s the usual same dives, spots, kicks, and counters. Super Crazy hits a Spiral Bomb for the win. **1/4

ECW Wrestling on TNN: Episode 3
September 10th, 1999
Queens, New York

The show opens with Ravens return from last week.

Rhino vs. Super Crazy
Very fun match, Crazy goes to the stick and move game by using his speed, Rhino has some real fun power moves and counters into power offense, but it’s mostly a Crazy showcase. Joel speaks in Spanish for the majority of the match to pop himself. Rhino goes for his Powerbomb, but Crazy blocks into a Huracanrana for the win. After the match; Corino runs down and yells at Rhino until Rhino backs him into a corner. As Crazy is about to leave, Rhino calls him back in for a handshake and as he’s about to do it Rhino hits him with a powerbomb. Corino and Rhino celebrate. **1/4

Masato Tanaka vs Mike Awesome From Heat Wave ’98 airs in full.

ECW Television Championship: Jerry Lynn vs. Rob Van Dam (w/Bill Alfonso)
This is probably the peak of their matches, I may personally think their matches haven’t aged well, but I will give them insane amounts of credit because they have chemistry and they’ve added these really cool innovative and complicated sequences that I don’t know if any two can pull off. I really liked that Lynn is so desperate to win that he’s just willing to throw his body in harm's way willing to pay the price in the morning just to be a champion. They continue the I’ve got a counter, for that counter to which you’ve got a counter for that, but I too have a counter for that counters. And so on. They also know each other's signature moves so both men have to bust out new stuff to gain the advantage and then they can go into their normal moveset. HOLY SHIT! They even mad that god awful RVD dropkick with a chair shot look authentic for once, Fonzie interferes plenty which kinda puts over his fear that Lynn could and might be the one to beat RVD. Lynn delivered his own version of the Van Daminator in the middle of the ring for a nearfall, he comes right back with a tornado DDT off the top for another two. God fuckin’ dammit they ruin everything by doing that roll pin sequence before both men hit running clotheslines knocking both men down. Suddenly, the Impact Players run down and attack both men. Lance hits Lynn with his own Cradle Piledriver as Credible hits the That’s Incredible on RVD. Lance grabs the mic and says’s we’re the once that close the show because we are the IMPACT PLAYERS! Joey criticizes the Impact Players for ruining six years of giving the fans actual winners or losers :lmao:lmao:lmao Match was pretty fun tho. ***1/4

Joey Styles says next week it will be RVD/Lynn IV, there must be a winner. Also we hear from Raven for the first time since he left WCW..

ECW Hardcore TV: Episode 333
September 11th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Danny Doring, Roadkill & Ms. Congeniality vs. Chris Chetti, Nova, & Jazz
Ha, NO! Not tonight, not any night.

Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka
This took place back in Queens, July 11th, 1998. This is fuckin; great, it’s hard hitting and stiff, it’s a great first match/under the radar match. Tanaka hits a cool springboard clotheslineing to the apron, but Awesome outshines him with his leaping plancha over the top minutes later. They brawl on the floor, and Awesome casually murders him with chair shots. Back in Mike continues to nail Tanaka with chair shots, but that pisses him off who makes his comeback hitting some tremendous stiff elbows, he hits the tornado DDT but Mike kicks out at the very last second. Mike hits the awesomebomb on the chair, but this time Tanaka kicks out a two. He then heads to the top and connects with a splash for two. They botch an AwesomeEdge?/The Razors Edge, as Mike just drops him, but he manages to hit it on the 2nd try. Mike then sets up a table on the floor, he goes for the Awesomebomb but Tanaka slips out and delivers more elbows, and he finally hits the roaring elbow for the win. After the match; Mike is pissed so he AWESOMEBOMBS Tanaka through the table. ***


They relay Raven’s return again, Joey says he doesn’t think Raven forgave the Dudleyz for breaking Beulah’s neck, so this might have been a receipt for that. Tommy Dreamer has his first ECW Championship, but he has to share it with the guy he hates more than anybody else in the world.

Hardcore TV Exclusive: So after the Dudleyz/Dreamer match, The Dudleyz raise Tommy’s hand and strap the belt around him.


Tommy Dreamer and Francine come out, Francine’s cleavage is looking super perky tonight. Tommy grabs the mic and says, he's supposed to come out here and do something but something is bothering him so he wants to speak his mind. He says at ECW's first ever pay-per-view Barely Legal, the power went out five seconds after the show ended. People at TNN didn't want to take the chance of that happening again, and Paul E promised TNN that he'd get backup generators. TNN then said the fans in Philadelphia are a little bit spoiled and they see a lot and the fans in New York are better :lmao FUCK YEAH! TNN. Tommy says he was born in New York and he lives in New York, but he made a career in Philadelphia. He says the ECW Fucking Arena should be on TNN, he says to forget about this civil war because they're all the best, but it's time to get on with business. He says this is not a retirement angle, he's legitimately suffering from two herniated discs in his back, and tonight he's finally going to make a decision. Suddenly, Steve Corino and Rhino come out. Corino says he has quite a dilemma. The fans chant “Shut the fuck up” so Corino responds by saying no wonder there's no TNN taping in this craphole :lmao Now Dreamer he has 2 decisions. Tommy cannot defend his half of the World Tag Team Titles and disappoint everyone, but he won't do that because he's just as big a mark as they are. Or he can risk his life and career and defend the titles and his people will be happy. He says he's got a better solution for him and says he might like this. But here’s a better solution, Tommy lay down I won’t even hook your leg because I don’t want to injure your back. And then I will defend your half of the titles. Which allows you to go off and be a cripple. Tommy goes to DDT Corino but Rhino clotheslines Dreamer….AND CORINO CLOTHESLINES Francine. Jack Victory comes in with a trash can and the bell rings. Corino hits Tommy with the trash can, Jack then brings barbed wire in. They wraps Tommy in barbed wire and Corino is about to hit Dreamer with a chair but Raven makes the save, he hits Rhino with a DDT at the same time Dreamer hits Jack with one, they cover simultaneously for the win.

ECW Tag Team Champions: Tommy Dreamer & Raven

ECW Wrestling on TNN: Episode 4
September 17th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The show opens with the ending from Hardcore TV. Rave kicks Tommy’s fat ass before giving him both belts, he then leaves to celebrate with the fans. Just like in Queens.

Backstage: Cyrus is with Bill Alfonse, Cyrus says the BAN ON SABU HAS BEEN LIFTED! Cyrus says Sabu will face Justin Credible at Anarchy Rulz PPV. Fonzie says Justin’s life is in danger and payback is a bitch, and payback will be him getting his ass kicked straight to hell. Sabu appears on the screen and mean mugs the camera.

PN News is in the ring, he rips the Philly fans and says Philly sucks. Yo Baby, Yo Baby, Yo Baby, YO!

PN News vs. Little Spike Dudley
Typical Spike giant match, he avoids a splash, low blow and finishes him off with an acid drop.

An ambulance is outside and Joey yells that there's been some kind of an “incident”

Tajiri vs. Super Crazy from Hardcore TV 332 airs.

Raven is in a park at night time: He says for 2 and a half years Tommy Dreamer and I fought in an epic battle and a friendship based on love, and a hate based on love. you scarred my face and battered me unmercifully AND HE TOOK MY GIRL! But the one thing he could never do was beat him and he always pinned him for two and a half years. But Tommy finally graduated after two and a half years and he gave Tommy his victory. For two and a half years I stayed away from ECW, but your ECW career lost its meaning and purpose. Your relationship with Beulah lost its foundation. He says the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. But he exists. And he's going to be Tommy's own personal demon because he's already been crucified for Tommy's sins. Quote the Raven. Nevermore.

Lance Storm and Dawn Marie come down to the ring, Joey then tells Jerry Lynn is the one in the ambulance and Lance Storm is taking the shot. Wait, wouldn’t you show the beating or 2 just postpone the match? Lance pearl harbors RVD during his entrance, fuck yeah. he hits him in the head with a steel chair but as he taunts RVD hits this amazing stiff jumping side kick from the top rope. Suddenly, Justin Credible runs down and attacks RVD for hey look at this another no contest 8D Lynn makes the save, but Johnny Smith runs down and attacks RVD and Jerry Lynn. All 3 beat down RVD and Lynn as Styles reminds us all that Credible, Storm, and Smith all have connections to the Hart Family.


Back from a commercial, RVD is in the ring and tells Lynn to wait. He says he feels just like the people pissed. He says when these people pay to watch RVD, and he wants to give the people their money's worth so he calls Lynn over and says to let him kick his ass some more tonight. Lynn says he can barely stand but he can’t stand that he doesn’t have that belt around his waist either. So he accepts.

ECW Television Championship: Rob Van Dam (w/Bill Alfonso) vs. Jerry Lynn
Damn this was really good too, but I’ll give it a pass because “attacked before the match by the Impact players” it’s still better than that piece of shit hardcore heaven match. I don’t know why they even bother doing a Lynn injury angle if he doesn’t even sell it or why even bother wasting bandages on him? I liked that RVD’s offense was all targeted to the injured chest/ribs of RVD, granted most of his moves are targeted towards that to soften up the frog splash. Lynn takes a great bump off the apron through the table on the floor and this is the best selling I’ve ever seen from him, and it’s not just him touching his chest. They tease the match being stopped and Lynn being helped to the back. The fans begin clapping, and that gives Lynn his 2nd wind :lmao He blocked some of RVD's big moves and had some really great near falls. The fans are firmly behind Lynn now, holy shit, they even do a rolling pin sequence that I like. RVD goes for a desperation small package for two, as Lynn rolls and gets his own two off it. RVD tries to grab the ropes but Lynn pulls him back with a school boy for two. RVD kicks him off to where Fonzie is who nails him with a chair. RVD misses the frog splash and Lynn cradles him for the beat near fall of the year. RVD hits the Van daminatior and covers for the win. They shake hands after the match. ***


Anarchy Rulz HYPE
RVD/Johnny Smith – TV title :lmao

September 18th, 1999
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Bill Alfonso says Credible might have gotten Sabu banned, but he’s back and will kick his ass. And everyone that bought the PPV will see the biggest ass kicking anyone has ever seen. Justin Credible's gonna get a beating deserving of that ban by the most suicidal, homicidal, genocidal athlete in the world today. The most violent man in wrestling.

The Impact Players are in a gym, Lance says Smith is gonna give RVD a wrestling lesson of his lifetime, he will beat up Lynn just like last year, and even though Sabu’s ban is lifted it just takes him out of the frying pan and into the fire. Credible says he is scared and afraid for his life…but you know what happens when you take an animal and back it in a corner, I’m gonna rip your heart out. And you will learn why we are the Impact Players.

Justin Credible video package because HE IS OUR FUTURE!!!!!!

The Raven promo in the classroom from January '95 airs.

10-minute video airs on all the different Dreamer/Raven moments from their feud.

Dudley vs. Dreamer/Raven from Queens airs in full.

The Lance/RVD, then RVD/Lynn angle, match from TNN airs in full.

Joey then gives a rundown of the Anarchy Rulz PPV.

ECW Anarchy Rulz
September 19th, 1999
Villa Park, Illinois

Earlier Today, Steven Prazak is waiting outside the building when Tanaka pulls up. He tries to interview him when Judge Jeff Jones in the car behind Tanaka gets out and yells at him for parking in front of him. Jeff says he doesn’t care if Tanaka is the #1 contender, he says there are plenty of guys in the US that deserve title shots before him. Tanaka slams his head off the hood of the car and leaves. JEFF SAYS TONIGHT! TANAKA YOU COMMITTED A CRIME AND TONIGHT YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE, AND THAT PRICE WITH BE AWESOME!!!!!:mark:

Joey Styles and Cyrus are in the ring, Joey welcomes us to the show. They do their little back and forth before Styles plugs the PPV name.

Lance Storm (w/Dawn Marie) vs. Jerry Lynn
Lynn still has his ribs bandaged up, I really liked the mat/counter wrestling to start, it’s clearly carried by Lance because Lynn is never good at it or RVD is so piss poor at it that he makes Lynn look even worse either way. Lance is GOAT! Lance quickly targets the ribs by hot-shotting him onto the top rope, he then refuses to work the fucking ribs after and goes after Lynn’s head. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK?!?!?! moves are all super crisp and the counters are all awesome, but the logic is fucking atrocious, Lynn has this giant fucking bullseye on his ribs, that YOU, YOU did when you “attacked” Lynn at a taping recently. This allows Lynn to no sell like normal and goes into his bag of tricks of dives and shit that should hurt your ribs even more but because it’s Jerry Lynn he acts like nothing is wrong at all. PPV isn’t off to a good start at all. Oh and now they go into the fuckin rolling pin sequence smh. Lance gets a desperation inverted DDT for two, before getting a chair from Dawn. Lance sets it up in the corner but Lynn sends him into with whip, Lance no sells and crotches him up top. Lynn counters with a sunset flip powerbomb and rolls through with the cover but Dawn throws a chair at the ref to break up the cover. Dawn continues to interfere whenever Lance gets into trouble, After 14 fucking minutes FINALLY! Lance goes back to the ribs by sending him into the ring post. They go back and forth for about a minute until Lance knees him in the ribs and cradles him for the win. So in a 16-minute match, Lance targets the ribs for a minute 30 and Lynn sells them for about a minute. Great fuckin job guys. **1/2

No, no, no I’m not watching anything that involves Simond Diamond, Jazz, Tom Marquez, Chris Chetti, Nova, Tony DeVito, Danny Doring, Roadkill. However, I will watch NEW JACK! Come out and beat the shit out of all of them and jobbers like CW Anderson, Vito, Rod Price and Spanish Angel. He leaves with Nova for some reason, HEYMAN DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE PAIR JACK WITH NOVA! I SWEAR!

Three-Way-Dance: Little Guido (w/Big Sal E. Graziano) Tajiri vs. Super Crazy
This is really good, the majority is all 3 just going at each other not a lot of 1-1 with the other on the floor. Everything is really crisp and smooth, it’s like a blend of all the 69 past matches we’ve seen before just blended into this. Sal gets involved to give Guido his control period for a bit over both men. Crazy does his beautiful top rope Asi Moonsault to the crowd taking out both men, Sal then gets back on the apron so Crazy hits him with a springboard dropkick knocking him off and through the time keeps table taking him out. Thankfully, Crazy hits Guido with a top rope moonsault after a Tajiri dropkick eliminating him. Fuck yeah, Tajiri/Crazy for 4 minutes. Granted, it’s the usual spots, counters, and dives but still better than anything else so far on this card. The match ends when Crazy goes for the 3 moonsaults but Tajiri gets his knees up after the second, he hits him with a Buzzsaw Kick followed by a Basement Dropkick, and the Brainbuster for the win. ***


Backstage: Steve Corino, Jack Victory, and Rhino are outside a locker room. Corino says on Friday night it was announced that he had a mystery tag team. He says that tag team was going to be the ICP from Monday nights and they used to hang out with Raven, but on Friday their manager called ECW and when they found out they were going to wrestle Raven and Tommy Dreamer, they refused to come because they knew they were going to lose. So like the great man and great mind that he is, he's going to give the people a title match. Tommy Dreamer and Raven will wrestle HE AND HIS MAN RHINO!

Justin Credible comes out and says everybody knows Sabu has been reinstated….but, being an impact player I always got something up my sleeve. Jason pulls out a document, it’s a restraining order. He says this order prevents Sabu from getting in this ring or this building, he then asks the ref to raise his hand and make him the winner. The ref says Credible has a legal.DOCUMENT! But tonight there is no rules, Bob Artese goes to announce the match so Credible canes him in the head. The lights go out, and SABU IS IN THE RING!

Justin Credible (w/Jason) vs. Sabu (w/Bill Alfonso)
So this is good, surprising they have chemistry. I know. Granted it’s pretty much both men allowing the other to get their shit in on the other before the other takes over. SABU busts out a new dive, it’s the double jump to the crowd but instead of the plancha, he somersaults over. Sabu has no regard for Credible body here, he busting out all these different variations of his dives. Justin gets busted off when he goes through one of the tables frontwards. I think he’s split open above the eye in the eyebrow so it’s jut flowing. Credible tries to slow Sabu down by locking in a camel clutch, it goes nowhere. Jason tries to get involved so Sabu takes him out. He goes for the double jump leg drop but Credible breaks it up with a cane shot to Sabu’s injured mid-section. They have a fight over a Tombstone, and Credible hits one but Sabu kicks out at the very last second, Fonzie slides a chair in and it accidentally hits Sabu in the head :lmao Credible picks him up and hits another on a chair for the win. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! Are you kidding me, they build all this up, just to have Sabu lose in his returning match:lmao:lmao This push is insane, he still yet to comeuppance or recipe. **3/4 - ***


Masato Tanaka and Taz come out for the World Championship match. Taz gets the “You Sold Out” chants. Before the bell rings though Taz grabs the mic and calls someone in the crowd over. IT’S MIKE AWESOME WITH JUDGE JEFF JONES! Taz says his beef was with him, but it’s also with him NOW! He tells Heyman to let him go. He tells Heyman if he lets that big goof go he will choke him out. Heyman grabs the mic and says if he really wants to fight two men, TAZ SAYS YES! So Heyman agrees.

Three-Way Dance for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship: Masato Tanaka vs. Taz vs. Mike Awesome (w/Judge Jeff Jones)
Tanaka dives onto Awesome on the floor as the bell rings, Taz watches on as they beat on another. They smarten up and go after Taz. They team up but that only goes so far, as Taz dumps both men on their heads at times. Tanaka hits Taz with a roaring elbow and Awesome goes up top and hits him with a frog splash, both men cover Taz and Taz is eliminated. HOLY SHIT! Huge shocker. All the jobbers and lower class talent come out, not you spike you’re great at times. They all give him a standing ovation as he watches on from the catwalk. Tanaka/Awesome then proceed to give us the stiff/violent shit that I missed. Awesome controls for a bit, he gets a two off a sit-down awesomebomb, he sets up a table on the floor but when he goes for the powerbomb Tanaka slides down and they brawl on the floor. He does the running chair shot and follows up with a tornado DDT on the rampway. He does it again this time in the ring onto two chairs, but Awesome kicks out. HOLY SHIT! Tanaka places a chair onto awesome face, he then climbs up top and dives off with his own chair onto the chair. But again Awesome kicks out. They battle for position and Awesome powerbomb Tanaka through the table on the floor. He rolls him back in and hits an Alabama slam followed by a splash, BUT TANAKA KICKS OUT! Awesome nails Tanaka 3 times with a steel chair, but Tanaka refuses to stay down, great series of near falls until Awesome comes off the top with a chair to the head, Jeff brings in a table and Awesome finishes him off with a Powerbomb off the top through a table for the win. After the match; Taz hands Awesome the world championship, and raises his hand before leaving. On the ramp, he and Heyman hug. Back in the ring, Awesome and Tanaka shake hands. Taz gets a standing O and his name chanted but he points at Awesome and the crowd chant for “AWESOME” Joey yells THERE'S A NEW KING OF ECW…..AND HE IS AWESOME! ***1/4


Joel “I’m here in Chicago at Anarchy Rulz, and some pretty young thing watches at home and drools, and I know she’s got the skills and I know she’s got the tools to give an oral message to my family jewels” Gertner comes out. He brings out Tommy Dreamer and Francine for an interview. Gertner says he has a certain amount of loathing and dislike for him, but also some respect, and asks about the titles and his back injury. Tommy says he was at Wrigley Field last night and saw Sammy Sosa hit #60 and as sick as this may sound, there's a reason why Sammy goes out and performs because the people pay for his salary. He says he's sick and tired of listening to doctors telling him what he needs to do, call me old fashion, I don’t need explosions or pyro or any of that glitzy shit. I’m Tommy Dreamer, I need to sweat, bleed, and innovate some violence in Chicago tonight. Steve Corino, Rhino, and Jack Victory come out and Corino says Dreamer wants to please all of you stupid people, if you wanna bleed I’ll make you bleed. RHINO GO GET HIM!

ECW World Tag Team Championship: Tommy Dreamer & Raven (w/Francine) vs. Steve Corino & Rhino (w/Jack Victory)
Raven doesn’t come out, Tommy gets the better in the early going as Francine hits Jack with a chair. The tide turns when Rhino hits his sweet spinebuster. Corino begins introducing weapons so Francine tries to get involved. Rhino powerslams her, he goes to piledrive Tommy but Raven runs out and DDT’s Rhino. Victory is in and hammers away at Ravn in the corner, Corino goes at Tommy in the other corner. Corino tries to get both men to fight but that backfires and Dreamer and Raven hit stereo DDT’s for the win. After the match; some geek called Man-Child along with two fat fucks come out and stares down Raven. Joey gives them names but no fucks are given, Raven walks past Dreamer and gives him the finger before leaving with the geeks. Angle fuckery.

Axl Rotten is in the ring, he says they saw a new World Heavyweight Champion in Mike Awesome. He says he's not the best "worker" in the business but he can bleed like a bitch and he's letting it be known that he's calling out Mike Awesome for the first title shot. He asks if he's got the balls, comes out so he can go extreme on his ass. The Impact Platers come out instead, Lance says he can appreciate him wanting to make his mark, but this PPV belongs to the Impact Players. They're already two for two and his friend Johnny Smith will make it three for three. Lance says to rescind that challenge or they'll do it for him so he attacks them. Balls Mahoney and Spike Dudley come out to save. SPIKE GIVES DAWN MARIE THE ACID DROP! Balls hen comes in and chases off Lance and Credible, so Balls nails Smith with a chair shot. Axl says we ain’t going out like this and RVD is short of an opponent, Axl says let's prove to the wrestling world why WE ARE THE WHOLE FUCKING SHOW! Axl yells for RVD to prove he’s the fucking show against Balls.

ECW Television Championship: Balls Mahoney (w/Axl Rotten) vs. Rob Van Dam (w/Bill Alfonso)
So many things wrong with this, 1. No way this should have been 20 minutes, and I like this pairing it’s really good, but 20 minutes C’MON! Also, why was this the Main Event? Did people actually buy Balls ever beating RVD for the title, even if this is a “did not prepare for Balls, but for Smith” but I’m pretty sure RVD has beaten him in every one-on-one match since 1997? And they recently just had a match like 2 months ago, how much has Balls changed? With all the negative aside, like I said I like this pairing, Balls gets to show off his wrestling skill and power offense, while RVD gets to showcase his bumping and high flying offense to take the bigger man down. Balls busts out some “RVD adjace” moves like a spinning heel kicks that knocks he and RVD over the top and to the floor. They brawl into the crowd where RVD hits a Van Damninator which busts Balls open, RVD then goes back into the ring and brings back the somersault plancha into the crowd that helped him against Bam Bam when he won the title but also Sabu used earlier. Back in the ring, Balls slowers the pace and begins wearing down RVD with holds. He begins getting cocky and uses RVD’s own Five Star Frog Splash against RVD but only gets a two. Balls has RVD beat with a brutal chair shot to the head, but Fonzie jumped into the ring and broke up the cover with a chair shot to Balls. This distraction allows RVD to climb to the top rope. As Balls turns around while holding a chair RVD comes flying off the top with a Van Daminator but only gets a two count. RVD heads up top for a Five Star Frog Splash which connects and RVD covers for the win. ***


This is the best ECW PPV so far, congratulations ECW finally something I might refer to someone. Also RIP Taz

ECW Wrestling on TNN: Episode 5
September 24th, 1999
Buffalo, New York

Joey Styles and Joel “The ladies call me Fred Flinstone because I make their bedrock” Gertner are in the ring, Joey brings out Francine and Tommy Dreamer. Joey asks Tommy how his back is, but thankfully Gertner cuts him off and says who cares about his back if he can’t work hang it up. He then moves on to Francine and says he knows Francine thinks she brings a lot to the table as the Queen of Extreme, but he knows a girl in the back who is much better than her, who is pure and chaste and virginal. She’s not 150 pounds of silicone like you, and she's seen 850 less hotel room ceilings...She is, Miss Congeniality. She comes out with Doring and Roadkill, Francine and Congeniality get into a cat fight as the bell rings. So this isn’t an intergender tag match, this is for the Tag Tiles :lmao:lmao

ECW Tag Team Championships: Tommy Dreamer & Raven (w/Francine) vs. Danny Doring & Roadkill
They do stuff for about a minute, Raven runs out and DDT’s Roadkill and Tommy DDT’s Danny for the win. Raven gives Tommy the belt as he tries to get up, before kicking him in the head before leaving.

After the intro, Tommy is still in the ring and calls out Raven. Raven comes back out but turns around leaves.

Highlights from the PPV airs, BLAH!

Little Guido (w/Big Sal E. Graziano) vs. Super Crazy
The Same match we’ve gotten all year, I’m too tired to give a shit. Crazy hits a Tajiri like brainbuster for the win, because he clearly wants Tajiri and not this loser. After the match; Sal jumps Crazy which brings out Little Spike Dudley for his 20-second giant killa match.

In the ring, The Impact Players have attacked Jerry Lynn, but RVD runs out to save. Johnny Smith comes out to help the Players and it’s a 3-2. Suddenly, the lights go out. SABU IS ON THE RING! He takes out the Players and gets in RVD’s face when Lynn attacks Sabu they begin brawling until the Players get back up and beat them down again. Fonzie stops RVD and Sabu from fighting, and RVD accidentally hits Sabu, so Sabu hits him back before turning his attention to Credible and taking him out with a double jump leg drop to the floor.

We cut back to Joel Gertner and Joey Styles until the mute Styles points back to the ring, oh yeah Styles has lost his voice since the PPV so Joel has been calling the show himself. Another random brawl in the ring with all the jobbers from the PPV, New Jack comes out and beats them all up again.

The show ends with Taz handing over the ECW World title over toe Mike Awesome. The king is dead and the new king of the extreme is AWESOME!
