    ECW Massacre On 34th Street
    December 3rd, 2000
    The Hammerstein Ballroom
    New York, New York


    We’re jamming quite a bit into tonight’s show so we get a cold opening...

    No music, no opening video, no Joey Styles and Joel Gertner standing in the ring for an intro...

    Instead they speak a little from at the Bird’s Nest, as we hear “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants in the background until...

    ***Electric Molecular*** immediately keeps the rabid crowd in full swing, as they cheer pretty loudly for the young team who continue to impress more fans by the week, CHRISTIAN YORK and JOEY MATTHEWS. The usual happy go lucky tandem seem a little more serious tonight, still slapping hands with the fans and showing their respect, but they aren’t all smiles. On commentary, Styles and Gertner put over that this is probably due to Team Me’s attacks on them in previous weeks. Once they are in the ring, they head up to the top rope, posing for the ECW faithful.

    ***Big Balls*** gets an even louder reaction as the chair swinging team of BALLS MAHONEY and PIERRE CARL OULETTE, collectively known as EYE BALLS make their way out from the back. The extreme fans cheer even louder as both men are wielding their trusty steel chairs with the words “Team Me” and “Pretty Boys” spray painted on them. As they step foot in the ring, Balls shows Matthews and York the chair that says “Pretty Boys”, laughing at them which draws some laughter from the fans as well.

    ***Simon Says*** gets the first negative reaction of the night and it’s a fiery one, as the dastardly TEAM ME strut towards the ring. JOHNNY SWINGER and SIMON DIAMOND cockily give the fans just as much abuse as they cop, until they arrive at ringside. When they see their four pissed off opponents standing in the ring, they seem a little uneasy, stalling to get inside the ring.

    Match One
    Three Way Dance
    Christian York and Joey Matthews vs. Eye Balls vs. Team Me


    As the referee calls for the bell, all six men immediately come to blows causing absolute chaos. The swinging of hands continues with Balls able to drop York and Swinger, whilst PCO nails both Matthews and Diamond with right hands. The four men who are dropped get back to their feet and stare at each other, before looking over at their powerful opponents. York, Matthews and Team Me share a singular nod, gaining an understanding that they need to take out the bigger men first. York and Swinger charge at Balls and cop a Double Clothesline, whilst PCO charges through Diamond and Matthews with a Double Shoulder Block. Eye Balls stare down their shocked opponents, and as York and Swinger get back up, both leaning against the ropes, Balls charges across the ring and Double Clotheslines them both over the top rope! The Frenchman PCO watches on, slapping Balls some five, before side stepping a charging Diamond, using his momentum to throw him to the middle rope and to the outside. Meanwhile Mahoney lands a couple of jabs to Matthews, before whipping him towards PCO, who gets him up in a Military Press Position, and he throws Joey over the top rope, and onto the three men on the outside of the ring! With that awesome visual, the first chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” of the night allow Balls and PCO to admire their work from inside the ring.


    Eventually Oulette decides to stand on the apron, as Balls heads to the outside of the ring, picks up Christian York and rolls him under the bottom rope. The referee is content as it looks like Mahoney and York will be the legal men, as Balls slides into the ring, only for York to land a Dreamscape out of nowhere! Balls remains down in the centre of the ring, clutching at his face as York bounces off the ropes and lands a quick Leg Drop, followed by a second and a third. With all of the other men up in their respective corners now as well, York makes a quick tag to Matthews, before holding Mahoney down, as Matthews springboards over the top rope with a huge Leg Drop! As York steps to the apron, Joey Matthews lets out a smile and raises his hands for the fans, getting some appreciative cheers, until Simon Diamond roughly slaps the back of Matthews, tagging himself into the match. Matthews disappointedly shakes his head as Diamond comes into the ring and immediately wraps his hand around Balls’ throat. Pierre storms into the ring, however the referee stops him and Swinger joins Diamond into the ring, and they both stomp the life out of Balls. Realising this is their chance to soften up Balls, Team Me drag him back up by the hair, and drop him with a Double Suplex. With the audience getting frustrated, PCO heads back to the apron and the referee turns to see Swinger holding Balls up in a Full Nelson, allowing Diamond to tee off with five hard right hands to Mahoney’s face. The referee begins to argue with Swinger, telling him to get outside of the ring; until Balls begins to land some stiff jabs to the face of Diamond. Swinger balks the referee and gets met with right hands as well, causing him to stagger around, and PCO looks to charge into the ring again, only for the referee to stop him once again.


    The fans begin booing loudly now as Balls does his best to keep both men at bay with his jabs, before he lands a big right hand which drops Simon Diamond. Swinger manages to poke Balls in the eye, and Mahoney staggers back, allowing Matthews to tag himself in, before Balls and Swinger meet in the centre of the ring again. Both men throw hands at each other, until both York and Matthews enter the ring and land stereo Dropkicks, causing both Swinger and Balls to tumble underneath the bottom rope and to the outside. Swinger and Mahoney both scramble to their feet on the outside, holding on to each other for support, as Matthews and York share a nod, and sprint across the ring, leaping through the middle rope and landing stereo Tope Suicidas!

    All four men are down on the outside as the fans once again chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The referee scurries outside of the ring to check on all four competitors, meanwhile inside of the ring, Diamond uses the ropes to get to his feet, only to turn straight into a Clothesline from PCO. Oulette wastes no time, dragging Diamond to his feet and throwing him into the corner, before hammering away with brutal right hands. After landing about seven punches, PCO has to hold Diamond up to prevent him from crumbling to the canvas, which draws a slight smirk across his face. PCO ends up lifting Diamond up and placing him onto the top rope, before landing a few more punches, and climbing up to the top rope himself. Oulette grabs a Front Facelock, and ends up taking Diamond down to the canvas with a Superplex!


    Much like the guys outside of the ring, Diamond shows no signs of movement and PCO remains down for a little, clutching at his lower back. Eventually Pierre Carl Oulette slowly crawls towards the ropes and uses them to drag himself to his feet, before staggering straight into a Springboard Spinning Wheel Kick from Christian York! Oulette rolls under the bottom rope in agony, whilst York steps back onto the ring apron and he urges Matthews to get up to the top rope. Joey Matthews does just that, he climbs up to the top rope, surveys the crowd, enjoying the cheers, AND HE THEN LEAPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE LANDING ON SIMON DIAMOND WITH THE FROG ELBOW!!!


    Outside of the ring, York intercepts Swinger trying to get back inside of the ring and whips him straight into the crowd barricade. Back inside of the ring, Joey clutches at his elbow for a moment or two, feeling the effects of the high risk move, before he hooks the leg of Simon Diamond...

    ELIMINATION #1 – Team Me by pinfall @ 5:58


    The fans let out a pretty damn loud pop, as Matthews and York slap each other five, as Joey Styles puts over the fact that this is probably the biggest moment in the young duos career so far. As a herd of referees usher a complaining Team Me to the back, York and Matthews sprint across the ring, delivering a Double Baseball Slide to Balls, causing him to crumble to the concrete floor. With Balls incapacitated, York and Matthews drag Oulette to his feet and land some punches, before York whips PCO into Matthews, who takes PCO down with a Drop Toe Hold. York immediately follows up with an Elbow Drop across the back of PCO, and then Matthews immediately follows that with a Senton across his back. As Matthews drags PCO back to his feet, York climbs up to the top rope and leaps off with a Flying Clothesline, taking down Oulette yet again!


    It’s now Joey’s turn to fly high as he heads up to the top rope, AND LEAPS OFF WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY... BUT OULETTE CATCHES JOEY IN MID AIR... BEFORE IMMEDIATELY THROWING JOEY THROUGH THE AIR, STRAIGHT INTO YORK!!!


    Both men crumble to the mat as PCO collapses to the canvas again, feeling the effects of the match, whilst the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The young duo of Matthews and York begin to struggle to their feet, whilst PCO crawls to his teams corner... MAKING THE HOT TAG TO BALLS!!!


    With Oulette basically out of commission, Balls charges into the centre of the ring and begins landing punches to both men. York and Matthews are both rocking and reeling as fans chant “BALLS”, “BALLS”, “BALLS”, “BALLS” with every stinging punch that he lands. Mahoney looks set to land the killer blow, as the fans begin singing “WHOOOOOOAAAAAAAA” but before Mahoney can land, JOEY HITS A STEP UP ENZUIGURI OUT OF NOWHERE!!!


    Mahoney manages to stay on his feet but staggers straight into a SMALL CRADLE BY YORK...

    NO! BALLS MANAGES TO KICK OUT
    !!!!!


    Despite the initial shock from the blow, still being relatively fresh, Balls bounces to his feet pretty quickly, only for York and Matthews to whip him into the corner. York then sprints across the ring and lands a Corner Reverse Elbow, and Matthews immediately follows, landing a Corner Reverse Elbow of his own. Mahoney is now loopy in the corner, so together York and Matthews lift him up and place him in a seated position on the top rope. Matthews then heads to the other side of the ring as York stays relatively close to the corner. They share a nod before Matthews sprints towards York, leaping into the air, so York throws him up higher into the corner, ALLOWING MATTHEWS TO TAKE BALLS DOWN WITH A POP UP FRANKENSTEINER!!!


    “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out for the high risk move as Mahoney and Matthews both remain down. Meanwhile York seizes the opportunity, climbing up to the top rope... BEFORE COMING OFF WITH A FLYING LEGDROP, LANDING ACROSS THE CHEST OF BALLS!!!


    York takes a moment to hold at his leg, feeling the impact of the blow, until he makes the cover...

    NO! PCO DIVES ACROSS THE RING AND BREAKS UP THE COUNT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND
    !!!!!


    Joey manages to get to his feet now, looking frustrated at the pinfall getting broken, so he charges at PCO... ONLY TO GET TURNED INSIDE OUT AND THREE SIXTY DEGREES BY A GIGANTIC LARIAT!!!


    With his second wind well and truly in full swing, Pierre drags York between his legs, lifting him up for a Powerbomb, but York manages to reverse it into a Hurricanrana! The impact of the blow causes The Frenchman to roll underneath the bottom rope and to the outside, however York quickly climbs up to the top rope, AND THEN LEAPS OFF THE TOP TO THE OUTSIDE, TAKING OULETTE DOWN WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY!!!


    Christian York takes a moment or so to recover from the bump, and as he slides back into the ring, Balls has had time to grab his custom steel chair from ringside. York pops back to his feet... SO BALLS SWINGS AT HIM WITH THE STEEL CHAIR... YORK MONKEY ROLLS AWAY TO AVOID CONTACT... AND JOEY SUPERKICKS THE CHAIR INTO BALLS’ FACE!!!


    Before Mahoney can collapse to the canvas, YORK TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SCHOOLBOY!!!

    NO! BALLS KICKS OUT YET AGAIN
    !!!!!


    Unlike earlier in the contest, this time Balls is unable to jump straight back up, as instead he stays down, holding onto his head. Joey Matthews sees that Balls isn’t moving and puts his thumb across his throat, signalling that the end is near. The audience begins to buzz as Matthews heads onto the apron, before climbing onto the top rope again. Matthews waits for a moment, surveying the crowd...UNTIL PIERRE JUMPS ONTO THE APRON AND PUSHES MATTHEWS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE...OVER THE CROWD BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD!!!


    Joey’s prone body lays in the crowd, having taken out at least five members of the audience, whilst the fans left standing are all chanting “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” yet again. PCO admires his handy work, looking down at the scene with a smirk on his face. He then steps back into the ring only to be met by a fired up York who lands several right hands, backing PCO into the corner. York continues to punch the life out of Oulette, until he decides to put him up onto the top rope. Christian climbs up after Pierre, landing a few more punches until all of a sudden, Balls yanks York off of the ropes, holding York over his shoulder. York squirms, trying to break Mahoney’s grip but he can’t... AS BALLS DROPS YORK WITH THE NUTCRACKER SUITE!!!


    Mahoney immediately leaps back to his feet, tagging PCO who is still sitting on the top rope. Oulette still takes another moment, shaking out the cobwebs... BEFORE HE LEAPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE... SQUASHING YORK WITH LE CANNONBALL!!!


    Balls pumps his fists as the fans cheer on the high risk move, whilst Pierre shows no emotion, immediately hooking the leg...

    ELIMINATION #2 – Christian York and Joey Matthews by pinfall @ 10:45


    WINNERS – Eye Balls by pinfall @ 10:45


    With the match being over the bell rings, and Balls and PCO have their hands raised by the referee. The duo begin celebrating, enjoying the ovation from the fans as a disappointed Joey Matthews rolls back into the ring, clutching at his elbow.

    Balls and PCO don’t realise Matthews is inside the ring, to busy enjoying their interaction with the fans. Joey ignores the pain in his elbow and lends a hand to Christian York, helping his tag team partner to his feet.

    The two share a disappointed nod, preparing to leave the ring together, however Balls and PCO stop them. Mahoney and PCO off their hands... AND YORK AND MATTHEWS ACCEPT, in an awesome showing of respect and sportsmanship.

    The ECW faithful give a standing ovation to the show of respect from the competitors, before York and Matthews leave the ring. They head towards the back, slapping hands with the fans on the way, but allowing Balls and PCO to have their moment in the spotlight.

    Balls and Oulette continue to celebrate, when all of a sudden, THEY ARE BOTH CLOBBERED FROM BEHIND BY TEAM ME!!!

    JOHNNY SWINGER and SIMON DIAMOND aren’t happy with being the first team eliminated so they are attacking the winners. The fans boo the hell out of them as they stomp all over both men, eventually kicking Mahoney under the bottom rope and to the outside.

    With Balls not being an issue, Team Me double team PCO, DROPPING HIM WITH THE PROBLEM SOLVER!!!

    Massive heat continues to come from the fans, as Mahoney gets back into the ring... AND WALKS STRAIGHT INTO A STEEL CHAIR TO THE HEAD FROM SIMON DIAMOND!!!

    More boos from the fans, as Diamond just dropped Balls’ with one of his custom steel chairs. To make matters even worse, Diamond holds up the bent out of shape chair, laughing and tapping the chair where it reads “TEAM ME”.

    PCO and Mahoney are both down and out so Swinger and Diamond raise their hands in the air, further irritating the fans. They then step outside of the ring and strut to the back, making sure to take Mahoney’s steel chair with them.

    The final shot we get is of PCO and Balls beginning to stir as we cut away...

    ...

    We head to an area backstage which resembles a locker room to see the ECW Television Champion RHINO staring hard into the camera. Rhino isn’t pacing as he usually does, but he’s still a picture of intensity, water dripping from his hair which is scattered all over his face. The champion continues to stare at the camera for a moment or two, in silence, before he begins speaking.

    Rhino: I’ve heard a lot of talk before I actually came to this city, and everybody would tell me that New York is extreme.

    Rhino shakes his head and lets out a “pfft”, before continuing.

    Rhino: The one thing I can tell you about New York City, it’s not as extreme as Detroit!

    Big time heat from the fans as Rhino’s face begins reddening, preparing for an outburst.

    Rhino: IT’S FULL OF A BUNCH OF PUSSIES!!!

    Heat multiplied by ten from the New York Crowd, which Rhino pays no attention to at all.

    Rhino: JUST LIKE DUDLEYVILLE!

    The champ pauses for a moment, letting his words sink in.

    Rhino: AND SPIKE IS THE BIGGEST PUSSY OF THEM ALL!!!

    Heavy breathing from Rhino, and he actually takes some time to surprisingly regain his composure.

    Rhino: Overthe past month, Spike, you have interfered in my matches and you’ve put my head through a fucking table...

    Composure gone as Rhino gets fired up again.

    Rhino: BUT I LET YOU LIVE FOR THIS NIGHT...

    Rhino nods at the camera, salivating from the mouth.

    Rhino: BECAUSE TONIGHT...

    Brief “SPIKE”,“SPIKE”, “SPIKE” chant can be heard from the arena which cuts Rhino off.

    Rhino: I MIGHT NOT HAVE THE COMPASSION TO LET YOU LIVE FOR ANOTHER DAY!!!

    The champion lets out a sinister smirk at the thought of ending Spike’s life.

    Rhino: BECAUSE I AM THE WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION...

    He punches his belt around his waist, further emphasising his point.

    Rhino: RHINO...RHINO...RHINO!!!

    Having no more words, the intimidating ‘Big Fuckin’ Deal’ just yells at the camera, before shoving it to the floor. After a moment or two of no makeable screenshot, we see Rhino’s feet storm out of the locker room through a cracked lens.

    ...

    The champion looks ready so now we cut to see the challenger, SPIKE DUDLEY, standing backstage in his wrestling gear. Spike is in a hallway which is close to the curtain he’ll be walking through in a few moments. Despite being in for a serious match tonight, Spike holds his arms out wide, pacing back and forth, huffing and puffing whilst screwing up his face. Before Spike can talk, there’s some laughter from the fans who realise he is a pulling a Rhino imitation.

    Spike Dudley: In case you haven’t heard me repeat it millions of times, my name is Rhino, Rhino, Rhino. I’m going to piss down Spike’s throat!

    The litter of the Dudley family rolls his eyes, dropping the imitation now.

    Spike Dudley: FUCK RHINO!!!

    Epic pop from the fans for the attitude of Spike, who now looks dead serious.

    Spike Dudley: BAM BAM?

    Spike waits out the pop for the mention of Bigelow.

    Spike Dudley: BEAT HIM!

    Dudley nods along with his words.

    Spike Dudley: NINE ONE ONE?

    Another pause.

    Spike Dudley: BEAT HIM!!!

    Spike holds up three fingers now, ready to name his next victim.

    Spike Dudley: HUGHES?

    Yep, you guessed it.

    Spike Dudley: BEAT HIM!!!

    He now trades three fingers in the air to four and a thumb.

    Spike Dudley: BUBBA AND D’VON?

    The slightest of smirks cross his face at the mention of his bigger brothers.

    Spike Dudley: BEAT THEM!!!

    Spike lets those words sink in, wiping sweat from his brow, before speaking in a much calmer manner.

    Spike Dudley: So before we get it on tonight, I want to make two things perfectly clear. First, I’m not afraid of Rhino and secondly, nobody LETS me do anything.

    Dudley dead pans the camera, ensuring to get his point across.

    Spike Dudley: The tables will be turned tonight, because Rhino, tonight, I’m going to let you live...

    Another smirk from Spike as some of the fans in the arena cheer.

    Spike Dudley: Make no mistake about it though; you will live as a former ECW TV Champion!

    Almost taking a page out of Rhino’s book, an intense SPIKE PUNCHES A HOLE IN THE WALL HE IS STANDING NEXT TO!!!

    Spike Dudley: FUCK YOU, MOTHERFUCKER!!!

    With that awesome sign off, Spike storms out of screenshot, heading down a hallway which seemingly leads to the arena...

    ...

    ***Highway To Hell*** brings out a VERY LOUD pop from the New York fans, as the ultimate underdog, SPIKE DUDLEY makes his way out from the back. Much like a few moments earlier, Dudley looks extremely focused, walking down the ramp, slapping hands with a few fans but not being his normal, happy self. Once inside of the ring, Spike remains rather still, just waiting for his opponent.

    ***Debonaire*** is next up and the ECW Television Champion RHINO storms towards the ring, his eyes not removing from Spike’s. There is an initial pop from the fans but it turns into heat as the scariest man in pro wrestling throws his title belt onto the floor, yells at Spike, and slides into the ring.

    Match Two
    ECW Television Championship Match
    Rhino (c) vs. Spike Dudley


    As soon as Rhino slides into the ring, Spike drops to his knees and attacks, landing clubbing left and rights across the back of Rhino. He doesn’t let him get to his feet and continues to reign down blows as the referee finally calls for the bell to begin the match. Eventually Spike gets to his feet, and shakes out his hands, feeling some pain, before he drags Rhino up by his hair. He sends the champion into the corner, before the Commissioner of ECW hammers away with more brutal right hands. With Rhino leaning on the ropes to stay standing, Dudley feels at his left knee, reliving the injuries that Rhino has caused him previously. A scary look comes across Spike’s face as he grabs Rhino’s left leg, placing it over the second rope, before he begins stomping the life out of Rhino’s left leg. The fans cheer on the blows as Rhino yells out in pain, meanwhile the challenger finally stops after a solid ten stomps to the leg.

    Sensing the opportunity to really do some damage, Spike unhooks Rhino’s left leg and leaves him standing in the corner. Dudley rolls under the bottom rope and to the outside, before tripping Rhino up in the corner, and dragging his legs under the bottom rope until they are hanging off the apron. Still in shock, the champion seems defenceless as Spike slams Rhino’s left leg onto the ring apron! In absolute agony, Rhino rolls away but he doesn’t get very far, as a gleeful Spike grabs Rhino’s left leg again, and this time he rams it straight into the steel ring post! The screaming from Rhino continues as this time he manages to actually roll to the centre of the ring, however he is still clutching his left knee. Outside of the ring, Spike looks under the apron and pulls out a steel chair, before sliding back inside of the ring with the chair in hand. Spike sadistically waits as the TV Champion battles his way to his feet, limping severely on the left side... AND SPIKE SLAMS THE STEEL CHAIR INTO THE LEFT LEG OF RHINO!!!


    Rhino immediately crumbles to the canvas, clutching at his left leg again, whilst Dudley takes a moment to raise the chair above his head, enjoying the crowd’s adulation. Well and truly in control, Spike drops the chair onto the canvas, before slowly heading towards Rhino. Once he’s within touching distance, he raises Rhino’s left leg in the air, before dropping an elbow across Rhino’s left knee and thigh. The champion continues to scream in pain, as Spike holds onto the leg, driving his elbow into it, really leaning back and ensuring all his weight is on Rhino’s leg. Unfortunately Spike leans back a little too hard, and a desperate RHINO MANAGES TO LOCK IN A REAR NAKED CHOKE!!!


    In the beginning both men keep their holds locked in, but eventually Spike is forced to relinquish the grip on Rhino’s leg. He tries to fight Rhino’s grip but is unable to do so, as Rhino squeezes harder and harder, causing Spike to go purple in the face. Spike is squirming on the canvas, attempting to get out of the hold, until he actually goes limp, running out of oxygen. Noticing the lack of fight from his opponent, Rhino lets go and rolls away from a motionless Spike, choosing to just lay on the canvas and catch some deep breaths. Once he’s recovered enough, Rhino gets back to his feet but still clearly favours the leg a little, shaking it out and trying to regain some circulation. Once he feels a little more comfortable, the ECW TV Champion picks up the steel chair, and waits for his opponent to get to his feet. Spike manages to fight his way to his feet, using the ropes for support, but still looking worse for wear...BEFORE TURNING STRAIGHT INTO RHINO HURLING A STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE RING AND INTO SPIKE’S FACE!!!


    Dudley immediately drops to the canvas as the fans begin chanting “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, appreciating the awesome spot. Rhino doesn’t take his time to appreciate it though, picking up the battered steel chair again...AND HAMMERING AWAY REPEATEDLY WITH THE STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE BODY OF SPIKE...ONLY STOPPING AFTER FIVE PAINFUL BLOWS!!!


    The “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants continue all the way through, as Rhino now throws the unusable chair to the floor. Rather than go for a pin attempt, Rhino mercilessly drags Spike to his feet and tosses him across the ring by the hair. The TV Champion has a devilish look on his face now, as he immediately stalks over to where Spike is laying, drags him to his feet, and uses his hair to toss him again, but this time Spike goes flying through the middle ropes and to the outside. On commentary, Joey Styles is dressing down Rhino for not finishing the match, as he just steps out of the ring and waits for Spike to get up. Once the resilient Spike battles to his feet... RHINO SPRINTS TOWARDS HIM... BUT SPIKE DUCKS AND BACK BODY DROPS RHINO OVER THE CROWD BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD!!!


    Rhino’s body takes a few members of the crowd out, whilst the remaining fans chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” yet again. After the reversal, Spike drops to one knee, taking a few moments, before he struggles back up to his feet. Dudley climbs over the crowd barricade as Rhino has crawled away, trying to get to his feet. Once Rhino gets to his feet, a fan member gives Spike his chair... SO SPIKE SMASHES THE STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE HEAD OF RHINO!!!


    Somehow Rhino stays on his feet, but he is out of it as he staggers further through the crowd. Spike throws the chair back to the fan, before further navigating through the crowd and somebody else gives him a chair... AND HE SMASHES THIS ONE ACROSS THE BACK OF RHINO!!!


    The champion continues to just walk away, more unable to do anything else than running away, when a third crowd member gives Spike a steel chair. This time Spike gets really close to Rhino, waits for him to turn back around... BEFORE SLAMMING THE CHAIR ACROSS THE HEAD OF RHINO... AND RHINO FINALLY COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR!!!


    “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out yet again, as Rhino is motionless on the floor. Spike on the other hand, has realised they are close to the balcony, so he works through the fans and gets to the edge of the balcony. The smallest Dudley stands there for a moment or two, waiting for Rhino, who wobbles to his feet... UNTIL SPIKE DIVES OFF OF THE BALCONY, LANDING A CROSSBODY ONTO RHINO!!!


    Both men are down as those famous “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants echo through the arena yet again. Rhino is not moving whilst Spike has managed to get to his feet, but he’s leaning on a couple of fans and holding onto his midsection. After taking a few deep breaths, Spike hoists the dead weight of Rhino up, locks in a Side Headlock and begins dragging him back through the fans. Once they get to the crowd barricade, Dudley uses all of his energy to throw Rhino over the top and back to ringside. A battered Spike takes another moment or two before stepping over the crowd barricade, and approaching Rhino, who has shockingly got back to his feet already. Spike shakes his head in awe, before grabbing the head of Rhino and ramming it against the timekeeper’s table once... Twice... Three times... Four times... Five times... Until Rhino drops to two knees, just holding onto the ring apron to not collapse entirely. Spike knows he needs to make the most of this, so he rolls Rhino onto the ring apron, before climbing up himself, and dragging Rhino up by his hair yet again. DUDLEY LOOKS TO GO FOR AN ACID DROP OFF OF THE APRON... BUT RHINO REVERSES INTO A BACK BODY SUPLEX... SENDING SPIKE TUMBLING BACK INSIDE OF THE RING!!!


    Spike landed rather awkwardly and remains down, whilst Rhino, seemingly with a second wind, jumps off of the apron, although as he lands he winces slightly and grabs at his leg. He then goes under the apron and grabs a table before sliding it into the ring and following it in straight after. Back on his feet inside of the ring, Rhino leans the table up against the corner, before walking to the opposite corner, with Spike stirring in between Rhino and the table. Spike shows true grit, getting to his feet... AS RHINO CHARGES ACROSS THE RING WITH THE GORE... BUT SPIKE SIDE STEPS HIM AND THROWS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE TABLE...WHICH SOMEHOW DOESN’T BREAK!!!???


    On instinct, Rhino bounces up, clutching at his head... BUT SPIKE IMMEDIATELY ATTACKS WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN...


    ...

    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! RHINO JUST MANAGES TO KICK OUT
    !!!!!


    The fans let out an astonishing gasp as Spike gets to his feet and runs his hands through his hair in frustration, only for Rhino to CRAZILY be straight back up as well. The ‘Big Fuckin’ Deal’ stumbles towards Spike, who grabs Rhino... AND USES THE TABLE IN THE CORNER OF THE RING TO BOUNCE OFF AND DROP RHINO WITH THE ACID DROP!!!


    With Rhino down, Dudley immediately hooks the leg...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! RHINO POWERS OUT OF THE COVER, TOSSING SPIKE ACROSS THE RING
    !!!!!


    Spike can’t help but look a little shocked at the power Rhino still has, before he uses the ropes to force himself to his feet. The champion is still rattled in the middle of the ring as Spike gets on his haunches, in the opposite corner to where the table is placed. Rhino is in between Spike and the table as he manages to get to his feet, before turning towards Spike... WHO SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AT RHINO... WHO THROWS A WILD CLOTHESLINE WHICH DAMN NEAR DECAPITATES SPIKE!!!


    Both men remain down after that huge blow, as the referee checks to make sure Spike Dudley is still alive. Dudley remains still, not moving an inch, whilst Rhino crawls towards the ropes and somehow drags his way to his feet yet again. Rhino takes a few deep breaths, seething in fury as he walks towards Spike, and he stabs his boot into the ribs of Spike a few times, checking for movement. Spike doesn’t move at all so Rhino stands over him and yells, “I’M GONNA’ KILL YOU”, and he bends down to pick up Spike... BUT DUDLEY LANDS A KICK TO THE DICK OUT OF NOWHERE!!!


    Rhino drops to his knees, clutching at his groin, letting out an audible groan which emanates across the arena. Meanwhile Spike lets out a smirk, even whilst lying on the canvas, which leads Joey Styles to question whether he was playing possum. Spike gets to his feet and signals to the fans that this is going to be the end, before dragging Rhino to his feet... AND HE GOES FOR ANOTHER ACID DROP... BUT RHINO CRADLES HIM IN THE AIR... WALKS TOWARDS THE ROPES... AND THROWS SPIKE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND THROUGH THE FUCKING TIME KEEPER’S TABLE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!!

    Spike may be dead as he lays in a mess of body parts and broken pieces of wood, whilst the fans go nuts with their “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants. Inside of the ring, Rhino lets out a grin and punches his chest once or twice before proudly raising his hands above his head. The champion then heads outside of the ring and methodically brings Dudley to his feet, before rolling him into the middle of the ring. Rhino follows in, confidence on full show, before he drags Spike to his feet, places his shoulder into Spike’s ribs, holding Spike up... AND HE USES A MODIFIED GORE TO SLAM SPIKE THROUGH THE TABLE SET UP IN THE CORNER OF THE RING!!!


    Another table is broken so naturally the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” yet again. The referee tries to implore Rhino to just pin Spike, but the champion shoves the ref out of the way, before dragging Spike to the centre of the ring. Spike has visible splinters in his arms, as Rhino puts Spike between his legs... BEFORE CRUSHING HIM WITH A PILEDRIVER!!!


    With a smirk on his face, Rhino now goes for his FIRST pin attempt of the match...

    WINNER – Rhino by pinfall @ 10:31



    After the match, Rhino is immediately back to his feet, a glint in his eye as he is clearly happy with the carnage he has caused here. He looks down at the broken body of Spike Dudley, a sneer on his face, before the referee hands him his ECW Television Championship.

    The referee attempts to raise Rhino’s hand but he shrugs him off, before raising the title above his head.

    As Rhino continues to storm around the ring in celebration, the referee begins to check on Spike Dudley who still hasn’t moved...

    ...

    In a locker room in the backstage area, DANNY DORING and ROADKILL look pumped up ahead of their shot at the ECW Tag Team Championships tonight. Both have very serious expressions on their face, with Doring bouncing around a little, full of adrenaline. Eventually he relaxes himself, stands next to Roadkill and speaks to the camera.

    Danny Doring: Tonight’s the night... We’ve worked way too hard to stop where we are right now. We didn’t go to the House of Hardcore to get my haircut and my friend’s beard shaved.

    Both men feel where their hair used to be, obviously still a sore spot for the challengers.

    Danny Doring: We didn’t go through everything we went through just to be humiliated. We suffered and paid our dues for those belts.

    Doring motions for gold around his waist and an expressionless Roadkill nods in agreement.

    Danny Doring: With everything we’ve had to overcome throughout our journey, as we’ve already promised, if we can’t beat The FBI...

    The thought alone of losing pains Doring, as he pauses, screwing up his face.

    Danny Doring: We will ride off into the sunset; we will be done as a team!

    DD and Roady share a confident stare before he continues.

    Danny Doring: It’s a huge consequence but it’s just not going to happen. Tonight’s our night because we’ve worked too fucking hard for it.

    Passion. Fire. Determination. All coming out in the words of Doring, and the look in both men’s eyes.

    Danny Doring: Tonight’s the night... When we leave this locker room and walk down to the ring tonight, we do so as contender’s, but we will come back as...

    No CHICKENS~!Tonight.

    Roadkill: CHAMPIONS!!!

    Doring shouts “YEAH”and the two share a hug, before walking out of the locker room as their match is up next...

    ...

    ***Super Bon Bon*** rocks through the arena next, and a VERY warm reception greets the challenger’s for tonight’s tag team title match, DANNY DORING and ROADKILL.The duo slap hands with all of the fans, nodding and smiling, seemingly in good spirits besides the stakes of tonight’s match. Once they get into the ring, Doring and Roady share a few words before turning their attention to the entrance way.

    ***No Sleep Till Brooklyn*** The Beastie Boys tune gets the WORST reception of the night so far, as there’s not one person inside the arena cheering THE FULL BLOODED ITALIANS. As usual, LITTLE GUIDO and TONY MAMALUKE lead the way ECW Tag Team Championships around their waist, as they are the ones who will be competing tonight. SAL E. GRAZIANO and SCOTTY ANTON aren’t too far behind, waving Italian flags and shooting rude hand gestures to the fans. The FBI are a little hesitant to get inside of the ring as the challengers look fired up, however they have no choice.

    Match Three
    ECW TagTeam Championships Match
    Little Guido and Tony Mamaluke (c) w/The Full Blooded Italians vs. Danny Doring and Roadkill


    When The FBI get into the ring and the bell is rung, surprisingly the challengers keep their composure, as Roadkill heads onto the apron. With Doring being the selected legal man, Guido and Mamaluke can’t come to a decision as to who they want to start the match. They huddle in the corner and argue amongst themselves, allowing the fans to give them heat and Doring to shake his head. Neither man steps up to the plate and when Doring takes a step forward, Guido and Mamaluke both roll out of the ring. The heat is VULCANIC from the fans before the cowardly tactics, but The FBI ignores the fans, and all four members now have a team huddle. The fans begin chanting “PUSSIES”, “PUSSIES”,“PUSSIES” and inside of the ring, Doring has had enough. He quickly heads outside of the ring and sprints at the quartet, shoulder charging their huddle and sending The FBI off balance!


    Big Sal is off balance but manages to use the crowd barricade to stay on his feet, whilst the other three members have actually fallen to the floor. Tony Mamaluke is within reaching distance so Doring picks him up and rolls him inside of the ring. Doring follows Tony back into the ring and the referee acknowledges that Tony is now the legal man for the champions. Doring immediately drags Mamaluke to his feet and lands a Dropkick, which causes Tony to stagger into the challengers corner. Roady lands a sharp punch from the apron which drops Tony again, and as the Italian drags himself up, Doring charges across the ring and squashes him into the corner with a Running Elbow Smash!


    Mamaluke falls to the mat yet again, and the referee tries to get in between the two legal men, which allows Tony to roll under the bottom rope and back to the outside. DD and Roadkill shake their heads, clearly frustrated again as the fans cat call the cowardly tactics of Mamaluke. He doesn’t care though, as he walks around the ring towards where his teammates are... WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, DORING COMES OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A SLOPPY LOOKING PLANCHA WHICH TAKES OUT MAMALUKE!


    Huge cheers come from the fans as Roady nods from the apron, whilst Danny Doring quickly gets back to his feet, looking pumped. Doring grabs Mamaluke and rolls him back into the ring, before going to follow him in, but Big Sal grabs at his leg and keeps him from getting inside. DD lets himself get pulled back to the outside and shoves Sal away, only for Sal to retaliate with a punch to the face. The blow staggers Doring... AND ALLOWS SCOTTY ANTON TO RAM A SHOULDER INTO DORING’S MID SECTION AND PUSH HIM INTO THE RING POST!


    Doring crumbles to the canvas clutching at his back, whilst the fans shit all over The Full Blooded Italians dirty tactics. Roadkill looks set to hop off of the apron but the referee stops him, which allows Little Guido to stomp all over Doring, before roughly rolling him into the ring. Mamaluke has recovered now and has a big grin on his face, much to the chagrin of the fans. Realising he has the advantage, he just waits for Doring to work his way to his feet, and when Doring is up, he sends him straight back down to the mat with a Snap Belly To Belly Suplex!


    The leader of The FBI calls for a tag and Mamaluke obliges, tagging in Guido. The loud mouthed Italian stomps on the left arm of Doring a handful of times, before locking in a Cross Armbreaker! He really yanks at the hold, arching his back to apply more pressure as Doring yells out in complete agony. Guido implores Doring to “TAP OUT YA’ MUG”, but Doring refuses, slowly clawing himself towards the ropes. As DD gets within touching distance of the bottom rope, Guido drags him back to the middle of the ring. Unfortunately for the Italian, this alleviates the pressure and Doring is able to roll out of the hold.


    Doring is still down and out holding his arm, so Guido quickly heads to his teams corner and tags in Mamaluke. Tony comes in and immediately drags Doring to his feet, gets him in a waist lock, and lifts him up with an Italian Suplex! The cocky Italian gets back up and heads towards Roadkill, spitting at him, which incenses the crowd. Roadkill is just as furious, as he attempts to get in the ring, but the referee prevents him from doing so. With this happening, Guido gets inside of the ring, linking hands with Mamaluke, and once Doring gets up, they charge with a Double Clothesline, but Doring ducks, grabs both their heads and rams them into each other. With both men staggering around the ring, Doring makes the tag to Roadkill, WHO ENTERS THE RING WITH A SPRINGBOARD AMISH DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!


    Roady takes a moment or two and gets to his feet a little slowly due to his weight, but when he does, Guido runs at him only to get taken up and over with a Back Body Drop. Next up is Tony who follows Guido’s run and cops a Back Body Drop as well. As soon as Tony drops, the big Amish lands a Clothesline on Guido, followed by a Clothesline on Mamaluke. This time the tag team champions stay down on the canvas which allows Doring to climb up to the top rope. The fans are cheering as Roady points to DD in support, and when The FBI gets up, DORING LEAPS OFF AND HITS A DOUBLE CROSSBODY!


    With the adrenaline pumping, Doring is straight back up and he slaps Roadkill on the back in celebration. Meanwhile The FBI rolls out of the ring YET AGAIN, looking for a breather. Mamaluke and Guido huddle with Anton and Big Sal, discussing their plan moving forward, but they are oblivious to Roadkill climbing up to the top rope. Once he’s up the top, he steadies himself... BEFORE LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE... LANDING ON ALL FOUR MEMBERS OF THE FBI!


    The big time move from Roady gets the first “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chant of the match up. Doring has his jaw open in shock inside of the ring, as Roady uses the crowd barricade to drag himself back to his feet. Being up close and personal with the fans, Roady gets a few pats on the back, before he looks at Big Sal down on the floor. On commentary, Joey Styles mention Big Sal splashing Roady in the past, SO THE AMISH JUMPS AND LANDS A BIG REVENGE SPLASH ON BIG SAL!


    Sal is squashed and Roadkill begins to get to one knee, when Scotty Anton lands a low Dropkick to the head of Roady. Anton manages to roll a dazed Roadkill into the ring, before getting up onto the apron, only for Doring to run at him and shoulder charge him off of the apron. As Anton crashes to the concrete floor, Tony Mamaluke has rolled into the ring behind Doring, and lands a Dropkick to the back of his head, which sends Doring tumbling outside of the ring. With Roady still down, Tony quickly heads up to the top rope, ignoring the fans...AND LEAPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE LANDING A FROG SPLASH!


    Tony clutches at his mid section, quickly heading to his corner and making the tag to Guido. The leader of the tag champs heads up to the top rope and just waits, until Roady manages to get to one knee...ONLY TO COME OFF THE TOP ROPE AND LAND THE SICILIAN SLICE!


    With the big man seemingly out of it, Guido makes the cover...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! DORING DIVES IN AND CLOBBERS THE BACK OF GUIDO, BREAKING UP THE COUNT
    !!!!!


    The referee tells Doring to get out of the ring, but he ignores him and begins landing punches to Guido and a charging Mamaluke. He lands right hands on them both until Tony manages to poke him in the eye and they both throw Doring out of the ring. Guido then makes a signal to Scotty Anton who gets up on the apron, distracting the referee. This allows Tony to head outside of the ring and slide one of the ECW tag titles to Guido. With the title belt in hand, Guido waits for Roady to get up... AND CHARGES AT HIM WITH THE BELT... BUT ROADY HOISTS HIM UP AND LANDS A TKO!


    The referee hears the noise and focuses back on the match, which forces Tony to just head back to the apron. Inside of the ring, Roady and Guido get to their feet at about the same time, only for Guido to swing wildly with a right hand... AND ROADY LANDS AN AMISH SAMOAN DROP INSTEAD!


    With Guido basically squashed to the canvas, Roadkill rolls across the ring... AND MAKES THE HOT TAG TO DORING!


    Doring immediately sprints into the ring and across it, landing a forearm which drops Mamaluke on the apron. Doring then turns towards Guido drags him to his feet...AND DRILLS HIM WITH A BUTTERFLY DDT ONTO THE TAG TITLE THAT THE FBI BROUGHT INTO THE RING EARLIER!


    The ref doesn’t like it , but Doring hooks the leg and urges him to count...

    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! SCOTT YANTON PULLS THE REF OUT OF THE RING
    !!!!!


    Anton balks around the ref and slides him into the ring, only to be met with a few right hands by Doring. With Anton dazed, Roady comes in AND HOISTS HIM UP IN A BEAR HUG... SO DORING CAN BOUNCE OFF THE ROPES... LEAP UP AND TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A LARIAT!


    There is an epic pop throughout the arena for the use of The Hart Attack, however as Doring goes to get up, a recovered Guido kicks him in the gut. With Doring bent over clutching his mid section, GUIDO GETS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE KISS OF DEATH... BUT DORING PUSHES HIM STRAIGHT INTO A DIRT ROAD SLAM FROM ROADKILL!


    As the challengers are well and truly in control, Mamaluke humorously charges into the ring and drags Guido to his corner before tagging himself in. Tony steps into the ring, a determined look on his face, whilst Doring and Roadkill can’t help but look at him comically. Mamaluke goes to grab Doring, but gets beaten to the punch with some solid right hands. With Tony dazed and confused, ROADKILL GRABS HIM IN THE WHEELBARROW POSITION!


    Mamaluke is squirming but unable to escape, as the fans cheer and Doring climbs up to the top rope. Once he’s at the top, he motions that the titles will be coming around his waist... BEFORE LEAPING OFF THE TOP WITH A LEG DROP... COMPLETING THE BUGGY BANG!


    All of the other FBI members are down so Roady peacefully heads to the apron, as Doring hooks the leg, covering Mamaluke...

    WINNERS – Danny Doring and Roadkill by pinfall @ 9:43



    Once the bell rings and the result is made official, the ovation is MASSIVE as Doring and Roadkill have FINALLY become the ECW Tag Team Champions.

    The FBI is all down and out on the outside, but this is all about the new champions, as the referee awards them with their titles.

    Doring and Roady raise the titles above their heads, heading to separate corners of the ring, as the fans continue to shower them with cheers.

    They share a hug in the middle of the ring, clearly overcome with emotion after accomplishing their dream.

    Eventually they both step outside of the ring and they do a lap around the ring, slapping hands with the rabid ECW Fans.

    The fans enjoy the celebration though, encouraging Doring and Roady the whole way through.

    The celebration just keeps going, as they end up sliding back inside of the ring, and the fans ovation surprisingly continues to stay at the same level.

    Having to move on with the show, whilst the celebration is still in full swing, we have to head to the back...

    ...

    We now cut backstage to inside a locker room where STEVE CORINO stands, with JACK VICTORY on his right, and DAWN MARIE on his left. Corino looks to be in a serious mood tonight, whilst Victory and Dawn look a lot more relaxed. Dawn is in a navy blue evening gown with a high leg slit, looking fantastic, and she does a little twirl, catching the eye of both Corino and Victory. She can’t help but look at the two of them and giggle before speaking.

    Dawn Marie: In case you haven’t all noticed, I got myself a new dress because I’m on pay per view!

    Big time pop comes from the arena as the males in attendance want a piece of Dawn. Dawn smirks as Victory nods along, however Corino doesn’t react too much.

    Jack Victory: That’s right; we are live on pay per view...

    Victory then throws up the EPIC V.

    Jack Victory: HIGH SPOT!

    Victory enjoys getting his little spiel in, as Corino looks towards Dawn and Victory, not overly aggressive but enough to let them know stop talking.

    Steve Corino: Jack, I know you can’t help yourself with the high spot, so thank you for getting it out of the way early.

    Jack gives Corino a cheesy thumbs up, as ‘The King Of Old School’ keeps talking.

    Steve Corino: Because after everything that has gone down in my journey to become ECW Champion, tonight is very serious.

    No jokes now, all three have faces of stone, as Corino lets his words sink in.

    Steve Corino: I’ll openly admit, over the past couple of months I’ve had my shots...

    A bitter look comes across Steve’s face as he shakes his head.

    Steve Corino: Everybody already knows I’m talented and I’m the king, and I get closer and closer and closer to becoming champion every single time.

    He almost looks pained as he talks about his near misses at winning the ECW Championship.

    Steve Corino: But there’s something in the air in New York, and I’ve got a good feeling about tonight.

    All of a sudden, the slight cocky smirk that we are used to comes across the face of Corino.

    Steve Corino: I mean look at my opponents, I’ve beaten Kid Kash all around the country...

    Some boos from the audience who rate Kash, and this draws the attention of Corino.

    Steve Corino: Oh come on, he’s a nobody!

    Even more heat from the fans and the trio can’t help but share laughter this time.

    Steve Corino: And my other opponent, The Sandman, don’t make me laugh.The Sandman is too drunk to outwrestle the King Of Old School.

    Corino smirks at his own words, before tapping his temple as if to show how smart he is.

    Steve Corino: That’s right, he can’t outwrestle me and I’m way too smart to try and fight him.

    The fans continue to boo, clearly disagreeing with Corino which gets him frustrated.

    Steve Corino: I’M GONNA’ BEAT THEM!

    Marie and Victory nod along but a furious SC doesn’t notice.

    Steve Corino: THEN I’M GONNA BEAT ONE OF THOSE STUPID FOREIGNERS!

    Corino now motions for the title to come around his waist.

    Steve Corino: AND STEVE CORINO WILL FINALLY BE THE ECW CHAMPION!

    He begins to breathe a little slower now, as he turns towards Marie and Victory and motions with his head for them to leave. All three walk out of the locker room, ready for tonight’s number one contender match.

    ...

    Before we get the entrances for the next matchup, we see a video package highlighting just how this match came about...

    ***


    This all began in the second week of August when during an ECW house show in Houston, Texas, CW Anderson attacked ECW women’s wrestler, Jazz. CW put her through a table with an Anderson Spinebuster, and Tommy Dreamer took exception to this, sprinting down to the ring only for Anderson to avoid the fight.


    ECW TNN August 18th,2000 – Anderson and Dreamer are booked to wrestle but the show opens up with the two already brawling in the middle of the ring. The brawl falls outside of the ring and Tommy gets the advantage, looking to clock CW with a steel chair, until he gets attacked from behind by Team Me.

Unfortunately for Johnny Swinger, he remains in the ring and Dreamer cracks a steel chair over his head.


    ECW Hardcore TV August 19th, 2000 – CW Anderson cuts a promo talking about how Dreamer is not the Innovator of Violence and that his family, the Anderson’s were innovating violence when he was still just DREAMING of putting on a pair of wrestling boots. Later in the night they have a match and towards the end, when Dreamer begins to build some momentum, Team Me interfere. Jazz tries to make the save for Tommy but gets dropped by a CW Superkick. Dreamer eventually clears the ring of Team Me but then walks straight into an Anderson Spinebuster for the loss. After the contest, CW and Team Me continue the attack, trying to break the arm of Tommy, but Doring and Roadkill make the save.


    ECW Hardcore TV August 26th, 2000 – Six man tag team match as CW and Team Me take on Dreamer, Doring and Roadkill. As expected, the match turned into absolute chaos and Dreamer managed to get some revenge, dropping CW with a DDT onto a steel chair.

    ECW Hardcore TV September 2nd, 2000 – Tommy Dreamer and Jerry Lynn manage to make it to the finals of the ECW Tag Team Championship Tournament. They are looking dominant in the early stages until CW Anderson interferes, drilling Tommy with an Anderson Spinebuster right through the Timekeeper’s Table.

    ECW Hardcore TV September 16th, 2000 – It is officially announced on ECW programming that Tommy Dreamer was injured during the August 26th, 2000 six man tag team match, and he would not be in action for the foreseeable future.


    ECW November To Remember November 5th, 2000 – Team Me cut a promo bragging about the fact that they are the reason Tommy Dreamer is missing his first November to Remember, and how he hasn’t wrestled in ten weeks. Shockingly, Dreamer returns and begins beating down Team Me, until he once again, turns straight into an Anderson Spinebuster from CW. It looks set to be a three on one attack from here until Christian York and Joey Matthews make the save. A still relatively injured Tommy is helped to the back, and later on in the night, Anderson loses to Super Crazy.


    ECW Hardcore TV November 11th, 2000 – A replay is shown of the Dreamer segment during November To Remember, before it is officially announced that Anderson and Dreamer will do battle at ECW Massacre On 34th Street.

    ECW Hardcore TV December 2nd, 2000 – Team Me and CW Anderson open the show by bulling Joey Styles and Joel Gertner inside of the ring. Coming to the commentator’s aid is Eye Balls and a RETURNING Tommy Dreamer. We get an impromptu six man tag team match where CW spends most of his time working on the back of Dreamer. Tommy fights back though and the ending comes when Tommy is able to drop Johnny Swinger with a DDT onto a steel chair. After the match, CW Anderson drops Dreamer with a hard steel chair shot to the cranium.

    ***



    ***Mama Said Knock You Out*** brings the LOUDEST negative reaction of the night, as a confident yet serious looking CW ANDERSON steps towards the ring. Being that he is facing an ECW Original, the heat from the fans is rabid and Anderson smirks, seemingly enjoying the ovation. Once CW gets into the ring, he cracks his knuckles a few times, remaining calm, not pandering to the fans, ready for the biggest match of his life.

    ***Man In The Box*** causes the arena to SHAKE as the hundreds of fans who are in the arena make a ruckus for one of their favourites, TOMMY DREAMER. After missing November To Remember, Tommy steps out with a smile on his face, happy to be back before he throws his arms out, performing the ‘Raven pose’. He slaps hands with some of the passionate fans who thank him, until he gets to the ring apron, drops his smile and slides straight into the ring.

    Match Four
    Grudge Match
    CW Anderson vs. Tommy Dreamer


    The referee calls for the bell as Tommy gets up and the two meet in the middle of the ring, and we have ourselves a fist fight! Our audience are in raptures as both men place a hand behind the other’s head and they trade blows, neither taking a backwards step. A few lumps are already beginning to form on both wrestlers’ faces until CW stops punching, staggering backwards. The returning Tommy continues to hammer away with right hands, rocking CW and causing him to lean against the ropes to keep his feet. Dreamer lets out a roar and shoots the ‘Raven Pose’ again in a surge of adrenaline, much to the crowd’s delight. The ‘Innovator Of Violence’ then charges at the dazed Anderson, but CW side steps Tommy, and smoothly tosses him through the middle rope and to the outside.


    Dreamer lands right on his backside and CW grabs at his left cheekbone, where a nice sized bruise has started to form. Anderson then steps outside of the ring, but Dreamer was playing possum, immediately leaping to his feet and he begins landing more of his stiff right hands to the face of CW. This time Anderson has no defence and instead breaks away, attempting to create distance, but Tommy mercilessly follows, peppering away with more punches. Eventually Dreamer gets tired of punching CW, so he shakes out his knuckles, before grabbing CW by the back of the head and ramming him face first into the ring post.


    The thud echoes throughout the arena as Anderson drops to the floor, clutching at his forehead. Rather than allow Anderson to breathe, Tommy now mounts him and hammers away with another barrage of straight, hard punches. Once Tommy gets up and takes a few steps away, the referee decides to check on Anderson. Meanwhile Dreamer has a look of absolute disdain on his face, refusing to stop, as he walks around the ring and picks up a steel chair. Tommy raises the chair above his head, not hiding his intentions, before walking back to where CW is still down. Tommy stands over CW, yelling “GET UP, NOW”, and almost as if he has heard the words, Anderson uses the apron to pull himself to his feet. Once he’s back up, TOMMY SLAMS THE STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE BACK OF ANDERSON!!!


    CW’s yelps of pain can be heard over the massive cheers from the fans, as Dreamer follows Anderson, who is trying to get away. He gives Anderson a moment or two, AND THEN HITS ANDERSON ACROSS THE BACK OF THE CHAIR A SECOND TIME, AND THIS ONE CAUSES ANDERSON TO DROP TO A KNEE!!!


    Out of instinct, CW pops right back up and limps towards the ring, BUT DREAMER LANDS ONE MORE SHOT ACROSS THE BACK WITH THE STEEL CHAIR, AND ANDERSON THEN ROLLS HIMSELF INTO THE RING!!!


    Enjoying his return, Tommy gets caught up in the moment, staying outside, enjoying the fans chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The extreme veteran slaps the chair with his hand, signalling there is more to come, before he slides the chair into the ring and quickly follows. Remarkably though, CW is back up, SO BEFORE DREAMER CAN STRAIGHTEN UP, ANDERSON LANDS A SWINGING NECKBREAKER, WHICH CAUSES TOMMY’S BACK TO AWKWARDLY LAND ON THE CHAIR!!!


    This time the audience gasps in shock as Dreamer riles in pain on the mat, grabbing at his back. Anderson remains down on the canvas for a moment, looking at Tommy in pain and smiling, before slowly making his way back to his feet. Anderson walks up to Dreamer and roughly rolls him onto his stomach, laughing at the ease he can manhandle his opponent right now. CW sadistically stands over Dreamer, yelling “GET UP, NOW” back at Dreamer, and when Dreamer works to his knees, Anderson leaps up and sends all of his weight crushing into the lower back of Dreamer. The mood in the arena is completely drained now, as CW steps away from Tommy, who looks to be regretting his return. With a purpose, Anderson drags Tommy to his feet, and sends him back to the canvas with a Backbreaker!


    Wasting no time, CW steps over Dreamer again, and waits for him to get to his knees, but this time instead of jumping on Dreamer, he locks in the Camel Clutch! Tommy yells out in agony and CW screams in intensity, leaning back, applying as much pressure as he possibly can. The audience don’t seem to be too into the mat work as they know Tommy just doesn’t tap out, but CW continues to crank the hold anywhere. Showing tremendous courage, Tommy begins trying to drag himself towards the ropes but doesn’t really get near it, and the ruthless ECW fans begin chanting “BORING”, “BORING”, “BORING”!


    The chants clearly infuriate Anderson, who shakes his head, but the chants continue and Anderson breaks the hold. An EPIC pop comes for the end of the submission hold and CW storms around the ring, screaming to the fans that “THIS IS REAL WRESTLING DAMN IT”! The audience continue to heckle Anderson who eventually pays his attention back to Dreamer, who has managed to get himself to a seated position. CW sees this and punts him straight in the back with the toe of his boot. The noise on impact is scary as Dreamer screams yet again, and this time Anderson wraps his hands around the neck of Dreamer, and lands five repetitive knees to the back. Having a clear strategy of keeping Dreamer grounded; Anderson now locks in a Reverse Chinlock. Much like with the earlier submission attempt, there seems to be no risk of Dreamer tapping, but no chance of him escaping either. Once again, the fans boo the hell out of the submission hold as Anderson continues to squeeze the air out of Dreamer. The fans become incensed as the rest hold continues, chanting “FUCK OFF ANDERSON”, “FUCK OFF ANDERSON”, “FUCK OFF ANDERSON”, and for the second time tonight, CW lets go of a submission hold.

    Anderson forgets about Dreamer again, turning his attention to the fans, telling them that “THIS IS REAL WRESTLING... WORLD CHAMPIONSHP WRESTLING”! Holy shit, the fans actually almost riot and Anderson laughs at them, seemingly happy with himself. When he turns back, the resilient Dreamer is using the ropes to get to his feet so CW grabs him and swings him around, but Tommy meets CW with a flurry of right hands. He continues swinging wildly, catching Anderson off guard, landing eight straight punches, until CW takes a few steps back. Dreamer remains holding onto the ropes, and Anderson shakes it off, before charging atT ommy, but Tommy drops to the canvas, pulling down the top rope and causing CW to go tumbling to the outside.


    Already on his back, Dreamer immediately rolls under the bottom rope, walking past a downed Anderson, still holding onto his back. Dreamer looks around the ring and picks up the ring bell, before going back to CW, and he waits for him to get up... BEFORE SMASHING CW ACROSS THE HEAD WITH THE RING BELL!!!


    Big time pop from the fans as Dreamer picks up the ring bell hammer which conveniently happens to be nearby. With CW still down, Tommy holds the ring bell against his head and ear... AND SMASHES THE HAMMER INTO THE RING BELL!!!


    CW immediately clutches at his ear, feeling the effects, as the fans this time chant “TOMMY”, “TOMMY”, “TOMMY”. Unlike earlier in the match, this time Dreamer stays focused, ignoring the fans and looking under the ring and pulling out a table. Tommy slides the table into the ring, before making his way over to CW, dragging him up to his feet and rolling him into the ring as well.


    On the outside of the ring, Tommy takes a moment to check his back again, before he rolls into the ring, AND GETS DROPPED WITH CW’S TRUSTY LEFT HAND TO THE CHIN!!!


    With Dreamer seemingly knocked loopy, Anderson grabs at his head again, still feeling the shot with the ring bell. Once he’s shaken out the cobwebs, Anderson grabs the table that Tommy slid into the ring. He pulls the legs out and sets up the table not too far from one of the ring corners. After he’s happy with the positioning of the table, CW grabs Dreamer, surprisingly dragging him around the table, landing a few left hands in the process. Once they are at the corner, Anderson hoists Dreamer up, placing Tommy in a seated position on the top rope. CW immediately follows, climbing up to the second rope, softening Tommy up with a few more left hands. Anderson then grabs a Front Facelock and tries for a Superplex, but Tommy blocks it.


    Out of desperation, Dreamer manages to break the hold, and land some short, sharp punches to the mid section, and even a Head butt to Anderson’s head. With CW a little confused, Dreamer locks him in a Front Facelock... LIFTS HIM UP ALMOST LIKE A SUPLEX... BUT HE THROWS CW FORWARD AND OFF THE TOP ROPE... AND CW ACTUALLY FLIES OVER THE TABLE... ONLY HITTING IT WITH HIS FACE ON THE WAY DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!!


    Anderson crumbles to the mat, holding his face, as the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”. Tommy sits on the top rope for a moment, taking a few breaths, regaining his composure, as he stands up on the top rope, trying really hard to keep his balance. Dreamer waits for CW to slowly make his way to his feet, and when he does, DREAMER LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE... AND CW THROWS THE TABLE UP IN THE AIR, CAUSING DREAMER TO NOW GO HEAD FIRST INTO THE TABLE!!!


    Somehow the table is still in one piece after two huge collisions, as Tommy rolls underneath the bottom rope and lies on the ring apron. He is clearly in pain as CW just leans on the ropes for support, fans once again chanting “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. On the apron, even after copping that massive blow to the head, Dreamer is favouring his back, as CW grabs the table, tucking in the legs and leaning it against the corner of the ring. Not wanting to waste too much time, CW now hurries over to Dreamer, grabbing his arm and dragging him under the bottom rope and back into the ring. He now mercilessly brings Tommy to his feet, landing a quick couple of punches, before sending him into the ropes. CW waits for Tommy to come back and ducks... BUT TOMMY SEES IT AND CATCHES ANDERSON WITH A DDT!!!


    Both men remain down for a moment or two, until Tommy drapes an arm over the chest of Anderson...

    NO! CW ROLLS A SHOULDER OFF THE MAT AT THE LAST MOMENT
    !!!!!


    All of the fans groan clearly disappointed that Tommy didn’t win it there. Dreamer actually looks to be getting his second wind, as he quickly gets to his feet and drags Anderson up with him. Dreamer shows great strength, LIFTING ANDERSON UP FOR THE DREAMER DRIVER... BUT CW slides off of the shoulders of Dreamer, landing behind him. Before Tommy can react, Anderson grabs him and roughly throws him chest first into the ring corner’s turnbuckles. Dreamer holds his chest, turning himself around to lean his back against the corner of the ring, whilst CW just takes a few steps back, measuring his opponent. Anderson then charges across the ring, squashing Tommy in the corner with a Northern Lariat!


    CW immediately backs away from Dreamer, who instinctively staggers out of the corner... AND STAGGERS STRAIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK FROM ANDERSON!!!


    As Tommy collapses, CW immediately leaps on top, hooking the leg...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! DREAMER SOMEHOW KICKS OUT
    !!!!!


    Anderson looks towards the referee who confirms the two count, and then lets out a frustrated roar. CW stomps his way back to his feet, and uses Tommy’s hair to drag him back up to a vertical base as well. CW brutally hits some more left hands to the face of Dreamer, before whipping him into the ropes. As he hits the ropes, Dreamer hooks his arms over the top, stopping himself from coming back to CW. Anderson gets even more frustrated and runs at Tommy, but he runs straight into a boot to the face. CW staggers away, holding his face, and this allows Tommy to pick up the steel chair he used earlier... AND HE SMASHES IT ACROSS THE FACE OF ANDERSON!!!


    CW drops as if he has been shot, the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”and Dreamer drops the chair and hooks the leg...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! THIS TIME ANDERSON SOMEHOW KICKS OUT
    !!!!!

    Much like a few moments before with Anderson, this time it’s Tommy who looks at the referee in astonishment, as the referee confirms it was only a two count. Unlike CW though, Dreamer doesn’t yell, but instead lets out a smirk, looking forward to inflicting more punishment. Tommy slowly and methodically drags CW back up to his feet yet again... AND GETS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDER’S FOR THE DREAMER DRIVER!!! This time Anderson is steadier in position... UNTIL HE THROWS FIVE BRUTAL ELBOWS TO THE HEAD OF DREAMER, WHICH CAUSES HIM TO GET A LITTLE WOBBLY AT THE KNEES!!!


    For the second time tonight, with the grip loosened, Anderson manages to weasel out and land behind Tommy. CW quickly pushes Tommy towards the ropes and ducks his head, but for the second time tonight, when coming back, Dreamer counters, this time by kicking CW as hard as he can in the chest. Anderson’s body flings backwards and he takes a few steps back, clutching at his chest, as even the fans gasp from the sound of the kick. Sensing his chance, Dreamer takes a few steps towards Anderson and looks to grab him... BUT OUT OF NOWHERE... CW GRABS A HOLD OF TOMMY AND LANDS A MODIFIED VERSION OF THE ANDERSON SPINEBUSTER THROUGH THE TABLE THAT IS SET UP IN THE CORNER OF THE RING!!!


    The energy of the audience immediately seems to disappear, as Anderson stays on his knees, taking a few deep breaths. He then drags the lifeless body of Dreamer from the corner and all of the chips of wood. Once they are in the middle of the ring, CW quickly pulls a couple of splinters out of his hands, before hooking both legs...

    WINNER – CW Anderson by pinfall @ 12:52



    The audience is in a complete state of shock as CW Anderson has CLEANLY defeated Tommy Dreamer. Surprisingly, CW allows the referee to raise his hand, closing his eyes and smiling, enjoying the victorious moment. Anderson heads up to the top rope, raising his hands above his head again, as Joey Styles talks about how this is the biggest win of Anderson’s career.

    As Anderson continues to celebrate, and the fans begin remembering to boo him again, Dreamer can be seen in the ring. He has still barely moved, only having rolled to his stomach and he is clutching at his back. The referee continues to check on him but Tommy is showing no signs of being able to get to his feet.

    Having had a fair chunk of a celebration, Anderson takes one last look at a downed Dreamer, an arrogant smirk on his face. The fans see this and as CW leaves he cops quite a bit of abuse from the ECW fans.

    Once CW has left, we focus back inside the ring where multiple referees are checking on Dreamer, who is still feeling at his back in agony.

    The attention continues to be on Dreamer so a video package begins to play...

    ***


    It’s a replay of the finish to the previous match and it shows when CW Anderson sent Tommy through the table with a Spinebuster. As the table was set up against the corner, when Dreamer landed, he managed to land his back awkwardly on one of the legs of the table.


    ***



    Dreamer has finally ushered a few referees out of his way as he slowly crawls towards the ropes. As that is happening, we head up to the Bird’s Nest.

    Joey Styles: What an effort by Tommy Dreamer! This man has left his all in this ring tonight for Extreme Championship Wrestling and the ECW fans.The video we just saw showed that Dreamer landed on the hard leg of the table, causing these problems. Tommy has turned down the help of the referees, showing even in defeat, the type of man he is!

    Tommy’s not really having much progress at getting to his feet, when the audience begins to cheer. Donning a sling due to previous action, JOEY MATTHEWS makes his way out from the back, alongside his tag team partner, CHRISTIAN YORK. They both looked concerned as they slide inside the ring and offer their assistance to Dreamer.

    Despite having turned down the help from the referee, when Matthews and York offer their hands, Dreamer accepts. Together they manage to get Dreamer to his feet, and although he still looks ginger, he shares a hug with the youngsters.

    Once they break and Dreamer is up on his own two feet, the audience ERUPT, appreciating everything Tommy has done. Even though he’s getting the ovation, Dreamer looks disappointed, not happy with having lost the match tonight.

    Dreamer has help getting out of the ring, and he puts an arm over the necks of Matthews and York for support. Whilst they walk up the ramp towards the back, the fans chant“TOMMY”, “TOMMY”, “TOMMY”, and Dreamer gives them a little nod, before disappearing to the back, to probably put some ice on his back.

    ...

    With a slight break before the wrestlers for the next match make their entrances, another video package plays...

    ***


    The video comes alive showing highlights of Super Crazy and Yoshihiro Tajiri’s first meeting in Extreme Championship Wrestling, which was back at Guilty As Charged 1999. The two trade spots in what is easily the show stealer of the evening, and the match comes to an end when Tajiri nails a Dragon Suplex, gaining the three count straight after.


    ***



    The hype for the ECW Championship match later tonight has been completed, so it’s time to get the next match started...

    ***Fuck That*** gets a big time positive reception from the fans, as KID KASH heads towards the ring. KK is all business tonight, ready to go, still greeting some of the fans at ringside but being a little more composed and focused than normal. Once he is inside of the ring, he stands in the centre, signalling that the ECW Title is coming around his waist, before motioning for his opponents to hurry up and get to the ring.

    ***The Old School Style*** causes a HUGE mixed reaction to echo throughout the arena, but it quickly disintegrates into heat as ‘The King Of Old School’ STEVE CORINO steps through the curtain. As usual, the cocky Corino isn’t alone, closely followed by his valet, DAWN MARIE and his best friend, JACK VICTORY. The trio all look as confident as ever, strutting down the ramp and Corino pokes fun at some of the fans booing him, enjoying his trip to the ring. As he approaches ringside though, he smartens up, gets serious and slides into the ring, weary of Kid Kash.

    ***Enter Sandman*** hits and naturally Kash and Corino both start looking throughout all angles of the audience, trying to find their opponent. They don’t have to look too hard as in one of the standard Hammerstein Ballroom balconies, THE SANDMAN stands. Armed with his usual can of beer and Singapore Cane, he is being ravaged by the fans, all wanting to pat him on the back. The ovation is the LOUDEST of the night so far as he cracks the beer open on his forehead and takes a skull. He then makes his way through the crowd, before stepping into the ring, showing nothing but disdain for his two opponents.

    Match Five
    Triple Threat Match
    Number One Contender For ECW Championship Match
    Kid Kash vs. Steve Corino w/Dawn Marie and Jack Victory vs. The Sandman


    The bell rings to start this one and all three men are rather cagey, each remaining in their own corner of the ring. After a few moments, with the crowd still buzzing, all three men step towards the centre of the ring. Kid Kash and The Sandman show no hesitation whatsoever, whereas Corino looks a little concerned, taking a sidestep towards Kash. This gets both of his opponents attention, as they look at him with quizzical looks on their faces. Corino panics, taking a step back, before pointing at Sandman, saying “I WON’T FIGHT YOU” and then pointing at Kash and yelling “BUT I WILL FIGHT YOU”! Both of his opponents roll their eyes and the crowd explode with heat, even starting a brief “PUSSY”, “PUSSY”, “PUSSY” chant. Sandman takes a step towards Corino, who takes a step back, and this happens two or three more times, until Sandman takes another step and Steve takes a step back. This time his back hits the corner, meaning he has nowhere else to run, so he tries to side step around Sandman, but Kash hems him in. With Corino stuck in the corner, Sandman and KK both begin swinging punches, beating the hell out of Corino in the corner. The beating continues with punches, before Corino drops to his ass in the corner of the ring, so they begin stomping the life out of his chest instead.


    The crowd loves it until Sandy and KK stop and both head back towards the centre of the ring. A buzz murmurs throughout the arena as the two go nose to nose, ready to come to blows, however Corino staggers back out of the corner. Sandman and Kash surround Corino, and Sandy lands a right hand. ‘The King Of Old School’ blindly staggers towards KK who also lands a right hand, and they pinball him, as Sandman lands another right, as does Kash, and finally Sandman drops him with a hard right hand. Steve is straight back up to his feet, and KASH LEAPS UP WITH A HURRICANRANA WHICH ACTUALLY SENDS CORINO FLYING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!!


    Corino lands in a heap outside of the ring, so Jack Victory immediately scurries over and begins pulling Corino back to his feet. Once they are up, Sandman motions for Kash to do something and KK nods, BEFORE COMING OFF THE TOP WITH A SLINGSHOT HURRICANRANA... BUT CORINO MOVES OUT OF THE WAY... SO KK LANDS THE MOVE ON JACK VICTORY!!!


    An early spot as per usual as Victory remains down and the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Despite being in a bit of pain, KK gets to his feet rather promptly, however CORINO SNEAKS FROM BEHIND AND RAMS KASH FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!


    Gasps and boos come from the audience, as Steve gets a cocky smirk on his face, happy with his results. Unfortunately he then gets a tap on the shoulder, and when he turns around, he gets drilled with a right hand by Sandman. ‘The King Of Old School’ collapses to one knee, but gets back to his feet, walking away from Sandman, who eventually yanks him back by his hair. Corino tries to claw at Sandman but can’t, so Sandy unloads, landing several brutal punches to the face of Corino. The ECW favourite is forced to take a moment to shake out his hand, feeling it after all those punches, and this allows Corino to come back with an elbow to the mid section. This causes Sandman to lean on the apron, gasping for air, so Corino rams Sandy head first into the ring apron. Sandman no sells the blow though, landing an elbow to Corino’s mid section before sending him head first into the apron.


    Steve drops to the floor, but before Sandman can do anything he hears, “HEY, BIG BOY”! The borderline alcoholic looks to his right where the luscious Dawn Marie is parting her dress where the leg slit is, revealing pink panties. Sandman’s eyes go wide, and Dawn motions for Sandy to come on over. He does begin walking over to Dawn, who begins running her hand along his chest, but Sandman grabs her by the throat. The audience goes nuts, until Corino charges with a Clothesline, but Sandman shoves Dawn away, ducks the clothesline, and lands a brutal uppercut which causes Corino to drop to the floor yet again.


    The Sandman now shoots Dawn a warning look and she backs away, before he picks up Corino by the hair, and rolls him back into the ring. Searching around ringside, Sandman finds his trusty Singapore Cane before rolling back into the ring. He approaches Corino slowly, who’s on his knees, begging off, and Sandman cocks his Singapore Cane like a baseball bat, until Corino leaps up, getting a thumb into Sandman’s eye.

    Sandy actually drops to the canvas, feeling at his eyes, which allows Corino to pick up the Singapore Cane. The fans aren’t happy as Corino grins, standing over Sandman for a moment... BEFORE HE CHARGES TOWARDS THE ROPES, CRACKING THE SINGAPORE CANE OVER THE HEAD OF KID KASH, SENDING HIM FLYING OFF OF THE APRON AND INTO THE CROWD BARRICADE!!!


    With Kash taken care of and “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants echoing throughout the arena, Corino meets Sandman in the middle of the ring. Surprisingly, Corino beats Sandy to the punch, landing several shots to the face, until after the seventh punch, Sandy falls to the canvas. Arrogance is all over the face and body language of Steve now, as he begins stomping the life out of Sandman on the floor. The fans are booing the hell out of Corino so he yells “YOU WANNA’ BOO ME? I’LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO BOO”! He aggressively brings Sandman up, before locking him in an Abdominal Stretch! Corino really wrenches the hold, a smirk on his face as the fans hate the boring rest hold. He keeps the hold locked in as the heat gets louder and louder, so all he does is laugh at the fans.


    Eventually he gets a little too cocky and Sandman is able to break out of the hold, reversing with the world’s ugliest Hip Toss. Sandy stays on his feet and Steve is quickly back to his and they meet in the middle of the ring, trading right hands... UNTIL THEY BOTH GET FLOORED WITH A SPRINGBOARD DOUBLE DROPKICK FROM KASH!!!


    After the blow, The Sandman actually rolls to the outside, whilst Corino remains down in the ring. KK immediately brings Corino to his feet, before sending him into the ropes, and landing a Spinning Heel Kick. Sensing this is his opportunity, Kash immediately drags Corino up the hair, attempting to send him into the ropes again, but Corino reverses. Instead Kash bounces off the ropes but when he comes back, he manages to land a Headscissors Takedown on Corino!


    This time ‘The King Of Old School’ does stay down, so KK takes a moment or so before heading up to the top rope. Once he’s up top, he surveys the crowd, enjoying the ovation... BEFORE DAWN MARIE JUMPS ON THE APRON AND TRIPS UP KASH, CROTCHING HIM ON THE TOP ROPE!!!


    With Kash immobilised, Corino crawls to the ropes and pulls himself back to his feet. Once he is up, Corino climbs up to the tope rope, locking in a Front Facelock AND CORINO ATTEMPTS A SUPERPLEX... BUT KK BLOCKS IT!!!


    Kash then manages to land some quick rapid fire left and rights to the mid section of Corino, followed by a big right hand to the head. As Corino tries to regain his wits clinging onto the top rope, Kash actually slides underneath the legs of Corino, back on the canvas now. Instead of staying there, KK climbs right back up, forcefully manoeuvring Corino to now be in a seated position on the top rope. With Corino in perfect position... KASH LEAPS UP IN THE AIR... LANDING A PICTURE PERFECT TOP ROPE HURRICANRANA!!!


    Corino’s in a heap in the middle of the ring, as the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”... Meanwhile Kash quickly crawls over and hooks the leg...

    NO! SANDMAN INTERRUPTS THE COUNT, CLUBBING THE BACK OF KASH
    !!!!!


    Sandman wastes no time, dragging Kash up by the hair and he pummels him with some punches. He then drags Kash to the corner before hoisting him up onto the top rope. Sandman quickly follows up to the top, before landing punch after punch, eventually landing a total of ten. With Kash a little loopy, Sandy actually stands on the top rope, holding Kash’s head and he mimes face fucking Kash, getting a huge mix of pop and laughter from the crowd. SANDMAN THEN LEAPS UP AND TAKES KASH OFF OF THE TOP ROPE WITH A HEINEKENRANA!!!


    No wasted motion, Sandy with the cover...

    NO! CORINO MAKES THE SAVE, ATTACKING SANDMAN
    !!!!!


    Sandman gets back to his knees but Corino lands a couple of stomps, before dragging Sandman up and throwing him outside of the ring. Steve immediately follows Sandman out of the ring and mounts him on the floor, reigning down fifteen short and sharp punches. The fans are a little shocked at the intensity of Corino as he now roughly brings Sandman to his feet, and throws him into the crowd barricade. Sandman actually ends up over the barricade and into the crowd due to the impact of the throw.


    Corino cockily dusts off his hands, seemingly having finished with Sandman, before he slides back into the ring. He immediately grabs the downed Kash, bringing him back up... AND HE GETS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE OLD SCHOOL EXPULSION... BUT KASH BLOCKS IT AND MANAGES TO GET A BACKSLIDE...

    Both men bounce back to their feet... CHARGING AT EACH OTHER... KASH LANDS A SWINGING DDT!!!


    KK immediately goes for the pin...

    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! JACK VICTORY HAS RECOVERED AND HE PLACES STEVE CORINO’S FOOT ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE
    !!!!!


    Kash looks a little confused at the fact that the referee has stopped counting, but theref directs KK to look at Corino’s foot on the bottom rope. This immediately causes Kash to look at Victory, who tries to feign innocence but the fear on his face gives him away. The fans boo the hell out of Victory as well, so Kash slides outside of the ring. Victory immediately starts running away... SO KASH GIVES CHASE, GOING AFTER VICTORY AROUND RINGSIDE!!!


    Kash continues to chase, not giving up on this one as he is yelling “YOU JUST COST ME THE TITLE”! Once Victory turns one corner of the ring, Kash follows... RUNNING STRAIGHT INTO A SINGAPORE CANE ACROSS THE FACE FROM THE SANDMAN!!!


    KK drops face first to the floor, damn near unconscious, and The Sandman threatens to hit Victory, causing him to run away. “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants are belted out by the fans, as Sandman slides back inside of the ring, still carrying the Singapore Cane, and he lets out a toothy grin, seeing that Corino is still down in the middle of the ring. Those famous chants continue amongst the arena, as now SANDMAN BEGINS SWINGING WIDLY... BLUDGEONING CORINO WITH TEN DIFFERENT BODY SHOTS WITH THE SINGAPORE CANE!!!


    Corino is rolling around in agony, not really knowing where to hold, having taken shots in the stomach, arms, ribs and back. The Singapore Cane is severely bent out of shape as Sandman raises it above his head, whilst the fans now switch up their chant, going with “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”! The cheering continues for the ECW original, as he steps towards Corino again, who is on both knees, praying and begging Sandman not to hit him again. Sandman approaches him, raises the Singapore Cane above his head, but takes too long...GETTING CAUGHT WITH A LOW BLOW FROM CORINO!!!


    Male members in the audience can be seen visibly cringing, as Sandman immediately drops his Cane and falls to his knees, clutching at his balls. A battered Corino slowly gets to his feet, walking very gingerly, clearly struggling with all the Cane shots he has taken. Dealing with the pain, he gets a furious look on his face, before picking up the Singapore Cane... AND DAMN NEAR BREAKING IT OVER THE HEAD OF THE SANDMAN!!!


    The Sandman’s body goes limp on the canvas, as Corino drops the Singapore Cane, taking a moment to regain his composure. As Corino looks set to potentially go for a cover, Kash slides back into the ring and lands a Dropkick to the back of Corino, sending him tumbling to the canvas. With both opponents down, Kash crawls towards Corino, going for the lateral press...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! SANDMAN SOMEHOW STILL HAS THE ENERGY TO KICK OUT
    !!!!!


    KK runs his hands through his hair clearly frustrated with being so close to victory again. He doesn’t take too long though, quickly getting up and dragging Sandman to his knees, AND HE ATTEMPTS THE MONEY MAKER... BUT SANDMAN TWISTS OUT... AND DROPS KASH WITH A DDT!!!


    Both men remain down as the fans applaud the sequence, and eventually, Sandman drapes an arm over the chest of Kash...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! CORINO IS BACK INTO THE RING AND DIVES TO MAKE THE SAVE
    !!!!!


    Corino immediately gets up and he drags Sandman by the hair to the corner of the ring, getting some heat from the crowd whilst doing so. Once he gets him right into the corner, Corino stomps on him a few times, making sure he stays down. ‘The King Of Old School’ now heads back to the centre of the ring, grabbing Kash by the hair and for the second time tonight... HE TRIES THE OLD SCHOOLEXPULSION... BUT KASH BREAKS OUT OF CORINO’S GRIP... LANDS A KICK TO THE GUT...AND HE MANAGES TO DRILL CORINO WITH THE MONEY MAKER!!!


    He’s got a chance for the win again, so Kash immediately hooks the leg...


    ...

    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! THE REFEREE STOPS COUNTING... BECAUSE DAWN MARIE HAS ACTUALLY PULLED THE REFEREE OUTSIDE OF THE RING
    !!!!!


    Sick of the interference, the fans erupt with volcanic heat as Dawn Marie argues with the referee outside of the ring. Inside of the ring, Kid Kash shakes his head, absolutely livid, knowing that is the second time tonight Corino’s lackeys have stopped him from winning the match. Meanwhile outside of the ring, Jack Victory has stormed around to join Marie in arguing to the referee, until the referee points at both of them, and directs them to the back. “YOU ARE OUT OF HERE” the referee yells at them, and they both look shocked as the fans cheer loudly.They still don’t look ready to leave as Kash watches on from the ring, until a bucket load of security come from the back, and Victory and Dawn are forced to leave ringside.

    Once security has started to take them away, the referee assumes everything is safe and slides back into the ring. He looks apologetically at Kash, who just shrugs his shoulders... AND TURNS STRAIGHT INTO A SINGAPORE CANE IN THE HEAD FROM THE SANDMAN!!!


    Kash drops to the mat, out of it, and the fans erupt into “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” chants again. Sandman takes a moment to look behind him, making sure Corino isn’t around, before dropping the Singapore Cane, and making the cover...

    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! KASH SHOOTS A SHOULDER OFF OF THE MAT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT
    !!!!!


    The Sandman actually looks a little shocked this time, shaking his head at the downed Kash, not believing he managed to kick out of the Cane shot. With the fans just generally applauding the match, Sandman slowly pulls himself back up to his feet, picking up the Singapore Cane again in the process. Again, he looks around and he sees that Corino is still down, so he just leans against the ropes, waiting. KK shows a lot of heart, slowly crawling to the ropes and he pulls himself to his feet. Sandman comes from behind with the Singapore Cane... LOOKING FOR THE WHITE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP... BUT KASH HOLDS HIS GROUND...USING BOTH HIS HANDS TO GRAB THE SINGAPORE CANE... MANGING TO USE IT TO CONNECT WITH A MODIFIED SNAPMARE TO FLING SANDMAN ACROSS THE RING!!!


    Realising he’s about to be attacked again, ‘The Notorious K.I.D’ quickly gets up, as does The Sandman. They meet in the centre of the ring and Kash uses his pace, kicking Sandy in the gut... BEFORE LOOKING FOR THE MONEY MAKER... SANDMAN COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!!


    Due to general exhaustion, both men remain down. They slowly begin fighting their way back to their feet and Kash just happens to be right next to where the Singapore Cane lays on the canvas. Both men get up to their feet at about the same time, but Kash has the Singapore Cane... AND HE SWINGS AT SANDMAN’S HEAD WITH IT... SANDMAN DUCKS... SNATCHES THE CANE... BEFORE LANDING THE WHITE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!!!


    Big time pop from the fans as Sandman lands his finish, before getting back to his feet. Before making the cover, much like he has earlier, he turns to look and make sure Corino is still out of the equation... BUT HE TURNS STRAIGHT INTO THE OLD SCHOOL KICK FROM STEVE CORINO!!!


    The ovation is gone after Sandman falls to the canvas, and you can hear a pin drop now that Corino is in charge. ‘The King Of Old School’ knows that Sandman is down, and he now drags Kash up by the hair... ATTEMPTING THE OLD SCHOOL EXPULSION FOR THE THIRD TIME TONIGHT ON KID KASH... THIS TIME HE NAILS IT!!!


    The last bit of hope seemingly drains from the fans as an audible groan rumbles amongst the audience, but inside of the ring, Corino hooks Kash’s leg...

    WINNER – Steve Corino by pinfall @ 15:33



    As soon as the bell rings, the referee raises the hand of Steve Corino, much to the dismay of the New York fans. Once the referee raises his hand, Corino looks around to see that Kash and Sandman are both stirring so he quickly exits the ring and begins walking towards the back.

    Knowing he got the opportunistic victory tonight, there is no over the top celebration from ‘The King Of Old School’. He has a slight smirk on his face as he hurries up the ramp, stopping right before the curtain to raise his hands above his head, and motion that the ECW Championship will be coming around his waist.

    With that, Corino heads to the back, the new number one contender, leaving Sandman and Kid Kash to lick their wounds inside of the ring.

    Joey Styles: What a match that was! Each man looked like they could win it multiple times, but in the end, with a bit of luck, Steve Corino is the number one contender for the ECW Championship. I’ve received word that Steve Corino will face the winner of tonight’s ECW Championship match on the December sixteenth episode of ECW Hardcore TV in Queens, New York!

    Now that Styles has announced when Corino will receive his title shot, the camera focuses back in on The Sandman and Kid Kash, who are both back to their feet, looking unhappy at not getting the win tonight...

    ...

    As the two slowly make their way to the back, a video package begins to play, hyping tonight’s co main event of the evening...

    ***


    This video basically highlights all of events that have taken place in this thread between the ECW Champion Justin Credible and the number one contender, Jerry Lynn. The initial highlights we get are from the July 21st edition of ECW On TNN which shows Jerry Lynn having issues with The Network, and a bounty being placed on his head. Meanwhile, Justin Credible defends his title against Tajiri and only gets the win thanks to interference from The FBI, who was paid by The Network.


    We then see the next night on the July 22nd edition of ECW Hardcore TV where Credible successfully defends his title against Pierre Carl Oulette, only to have an intense staredown with Jerry Lynn up at the Eagle’s Nest afterwards.


    We then cut to the August 11th edition of ECW On TNN which shows Justin Credible and Steve Corino having a war of words, until Lynn sprints down the ramp. He actually bypasses Credible, having a score to settle with Corino and he beats Corino with a variety of punches. Credible sees this as his chance to strike; charging at Lynn with the title but Lynn kicks Credible in the gut, and smashes the title over the head of Credible. Lynn then picks Credible back up, and drops him with the Cradle Piledriver before standing over the champion, raising the title above his head.


    Next up we cut to the August18th edition of ECW On TNN which shows The Network in the ring along with Credible, and Cyrus is giving Credible the ultimatum regarding joining The Network. Credible looks to be considering it but before he can respond, he’s attacked by Kid Kash.


    On the August 25th edition of ECW On TNN, Rhino teaming with Credible, who’s not yet a member of The Network which means there’s some tension between the two in their pre match promo. On the same episode, Jerry Lynn is forced to fend off an attack from multiple wrestlers who are trying to cash in the bounty The Network have placed on Lynn’s head. In the main event, Credible and Rhino are taking on Kid Kash and Rob Van Dam, and Lynn sneaks in and drops Credible with a Cradle Piledriver, and this causes Credible to be pinned by Rob Van Dam.


    The next night on ECW Hardcore TV, Justin Credible was yelled at quite a bit from Rhino due to losing last night. Credible complains that he shouldn’t have to deal with this sort of abuse and Francine agrees with him, now adding some tension between Credible and The Network.


    On the September 1st edition of ECW On TNN, the tournament for the vacant ECW Tag Team Titles began. Despite some tension last week, Credible and Rhino worked well as a team and defeated Chilly Willy and The Sandman to advance. Meanwhile, in the main event, Jerry Lynn and Tommy Dreamer were able to defeat Kid Kash and Rob Van Dam to advance.


    The next night on ECW Hardcore TV, Jerry Lynn is in the ring with musician Billy Corgan, until they are interrupted by The Network representative, Lou E. Dangerously. Dangerously insulted both men until Lynn grabbed him and looked to do some damage, but last minute he let Lou go, and dropped Credible, who tried to sneak up from behind with a Clothesline. Before Lynn can do anything else to the champion, Rhino attacks him and Lynn gets double teamed until Tommy Dreamer makes the save.These four then have their semi final match in the tag title tournament and Lynn pins the ECW Champion Justin Credible after nailing him with the Cradle Piledriver. Later on in the night, Lynn and Dreamer were the first team eliminated from the Three Way Dance final, thanks to interference from The Network’s Steve Corino.


    On the September 8th edition of ECW On TNN, there’s a huge brawl involving The Network and some babyfaces on the roster, and Credible, despite not being an official member, is on The Network side brawling on the outside of the ring with Lynn.


    The next night on ECW Hardcore TV, Credible claims that he does everything for himself with the intention of keeping his ECW Championship. He makes it clear he is all for himself and not for a group like The Network. Francine tells him he needs to cut a deal or something because if he loses the title, he loses her.


    On the September 15th edition of ECW On TNN, there was scheduled to be a Three Way Dance for the ECW Championship between Credible, Lynn and Steve Corino. Once Lynn comes out, Cyrus announces that Corino will be the Special Guest Referee as Credible has joined The Network. With the odds stacked against him, Lynn gives his best but with Corino being a crooked referee and added interference from CW Anderson, Credible pins Lynn and retains his gold.


    The next night Credible makes it clear he understands The Network aren’t around for too much longer, but they mean he keeps his title for longer and that’s all he cares about. Later on that night, Lynn and The Sandman team up to take on Rhino and Justin Credible. The Network duo have no more tension now Credible is a Network member, and Credible ends up pinning Lynn after landing the That’s Incredible.


    On the September 22nd edition of ECW On TNN, Jerry Lynn comes out in a foul mood after being pinned by Credible twice in the last week. Credible interrupts immediately, and tells Lynn he can thank him for giving him a shot at Anarchy Rulz, despite embarrassing him twice already. Corino and CW Anderson come out and stake claims for a title shot also and we get a huge brawl.


    On last night’s edition of ECW On TNN, Lynn talks about how it’s finally time for him to win the big one. He’s never been given a big break but now is his time to stop being a star maker, and be a star himself. Credible disagrees, stating that he is more overlooked than what Lynn is. Jerry has been given shot after shot but he just doesn’t get the job done. Credible claims Lynn is all hype, nothing is different this time, and Credible will beat him. The main event is a Strange Bedfellow match which sees Lynn forced to team up with CW Anderson to take on two members of The Network who don’t get along, Credible and Steve Corino. Lynn ends up winning this match for his team, when he pins Credible after nailing the Cradle Piledriver. The last image from this night we see is of the number one contender, Jerry Lynn standing over the fallen ECW Champion.


    At Anarchy Rulz, Justin Credible retained the ECW Championship, when he and Jerry Lynn fought to a draw. Lynn thought he had the win after a German Suplex, but as the referee counted to three, both men’s shoulders were on the mat. The offer was there to continue the match until we had a decisive winner, but Credible declined, happy to leave the PPV with his Championship.


    The next week on ECW Hardcore TV, Justin Credible defended his actions, claiming that he signed a contract for a one fall match and that’s exactly what he wrestled. He even went as far as to say it’s not his fault that Jerry Lynn messed things up like usual.


    On the October 14th edition of ECW Hardcore TV, Joey Styles and Joel Gertner invited Justin Credible to the ring, but he couldn’t even get a word in, before he was interrupted by Jerry Lynn. Jerry Lynn talked about how the questionable finish at Anarchy Rulz means he deserves a rematch. Before Credible can respond, Steve Corino interrupts and tells Lynn that he had an opportunity and he ruined it, now he should go back to the mid card. Corino predicted that once he beat Credible, he’d allow Lynn to have another shot at the ECW Championship. CW Anderson appeared as well and a brawl broke out, which saw Lynn take out Anderson with the Cradle Piledriver, only to turn straight into an Old School Kick by Corino. Credible attempted to hit Corino with the Singapore Cane but Corino ducked so Credible high tailed it to the back.


    The next week, Justin Credible was scheduled to defend his ECW Championship against Steve Corino. Once the wrestlers made their way to the ring, CW Anderson and Jerry Lynn both came out, pressing their claims at title shots. The ECW Commissioner Spike Dudley decided to make the match a Fatal Four Way. In the match, Jerry Lynn dropped Anderson with the Cradle Piledriver, but before he could get the pin, Corino threw him out of the ring. Unfortunately for Corino, Credible snuck up from behind and dumped him from the ring as well, which allowed Credible to retain the ECW Championship.


    A big time main event match was scheduled for the October 28th edition of ECW Hardcore TV, which would see Jerry Lynn, Steve Corino and CW Anderson battle it out in a Triple Threat match to see who would get the ECW Championship opportunity at November To Remember. The match ended after a high risk move resulted in Corino and Lynn both pinning Anderson. It was announced that they would both get a shot at Credible in a Three Way Dance match. Credible snuck into the ring and nailed Lynn with the Singapore Cane, and began brawling with Corino as the show came to a close.


    On the final edition of ECW Hardcore TV before the pay per view, we had a Three Way Dance tag team match which saw Jerry Lynn and New Jack against Steve Corino and Rhino and Justin Credible and CW Anderson. During the match, Corino was actually able to land the Old School Kick and pin the ECW Champion Justin Credible to eliminate his team from the match. This left just Lynn and Corino in the ring, but a furious Credible hit Corino with a Singapore Cane, which made it easy for Lynn to land the Cradle Piledriver and pick up the victory. After the contest, Credible attacked Lynn with the Cane as well, attempting to soften up his opponents before November To Remember's main event.

    At November To Remember,Justin Credible defended the ECW Championship against both Jerry Lynn and Steve Corino in a Three Way Dance Match. After being hit with the That’s Incredible by the champion, Jerry Lynn was the first man eliminated from the match. Justin Credible went on to retain the ECW Championship, defeating Steve Corino after Jerry Lynn pulled Corino off of a pin and dropped him with a Cradle Piledriver. Moments after the match, an impromptu match began which saw Credible lose the ECW Championship to Yoshihiro Tajiri.


    On the November 18th edition of ECW Hardcore TV, Justin Credible was complaining about losing the title in a non sanctioned match, and he says he is first in line for a title shot. Jerry Lynn interrupted wondering how that could be the case. Credible and Lynn went back and forth, arguing over who has the credentials for a title shot. Steve Corino and Kid Kash also got involved in the debate and it ended in a huge brawl.


    In the main event of this show, Kid Kash and Spike Dudley were able to defeat Justin Credible and Rhino when Jerry Lynn ran down and hit Credible over the head with a Singapore Cane.This left Credible easy pickings to be pinned by Kid Kash.


    A massive brawl broke out after the main event which ended with The Sandman coming down with his Singapore Cane. He cleaned the ring of everybody and celebrated with a beer to end the show.


    The next week on ECW Hardcore TV, Jerry Lynn went one on one with Steve Corino in the main event. Jerry Lynn was in control until Justin Credible ran down, causing Lynn to attack him. Lynn eventually forgets about Corino, attacking Credible with a Singapore Cane, which allows Corino to sneak from behind and get a Schoolboy pin for the win.


    After the match, Credible and Lynn continued to brawl through the crowd and to the backstage area.


    On the final edition of ECW Hardcore TV before tonight’s pay per view, it was announced that Jerry Lynn and Justin Credible would do one last battle, officially ending their three year long on and off feud.


    ***



    After that LONG video package, let’s get on with the entrances for the next match...

    ***Scapegoat*** brings out a decent pop as JERRY LYNN hurries towards the ring. Unlike in previous weeks, he looks to be a little more relaxed and sane, as he actually smiles a bit, appreciating the reaction from the fans. This continues when he gets into the ring, as the commentators wonder whether he’s relaxed because he isn’t in a title opportunity tonight.

    ***Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck*** gains an UNGODLY amount of heat as the former ECW Champion JUSTIN CREDIBLE comes out. As usual, he is closely followed by FRANCINE however she looks slightly disinterested, and he is forced to carry his own Singapore Cane. He ignores the heat from the fans, although Francine seems to be enjoying some of the wolf whistles she’s receiving. Once they get to ringside, Credible attempts to hand over his Cane, and Francine rolls her eyes, before taking it. Credible then slowly gets into the ring, locking eyes with Lynn, ready to do battle yet again.

    Match Six
    The Feud Ends
    Jerry Lynn vs. Justin Credible w/Francine


    Both men circle each other, weary of the other in the contest, not wanting to make an early mistake. This continues until they lock up with a Collar and Elbow tie up! They jostle for position, with neither man budging, until Credible manages to lock in a Side Headlock. The former ECW Champion cranks the hold, really applying the pressure to Lynn, before using the Side Headlock to Judo Throw him to the floor, maintaining the hold. Not wanting to stay on his back, Jerry immediately shoves Credible’s head between his legs. Credible kicks out of the hold and both men are straight back up to their feet, only for Jerry to lock in a Side Headlock. It’s Lynn’s turn to apply the pressure now, as he leans back, really squeezing on the now red head of Justin. Credible tries to shove his hands into the face of Lynn, but Jerry quickly spins behind, transitioning into a Hammer Lock. A pained look comes across the face of Credible, as he grabs at his shoulder, before grabbing a hold of the top rope, forcing Lynn to break the hold. The referee gets in between them to ensure the clean break and Lynn lets go, innocently putting his arms in the air and stepping back to the middle of the ring. Some members of the crowd heckle JC, and it clearly frustrates him, as Lynn invites him back into the middle of the ring.


    Instead, Justin drops to the canvas and rolls out of the ring, shaking his head and ignoring the heat from the fans. He walks over to Francine, looking for some advice, however she looks livid as she looks at him and yells “GET THE JOB DONE”! Rather than stand by her man, Francine storms to the other side of the ring, leaving Credible shocked. Jerry Lynn just chuckles inside of the ring, which infuriates JC even more, until he rolls back inside of the ring.


    Once back inside of the ring, Credible maintains his composure, beginning to circle the amused Lynn again. Eventually the two lock up again with another Collar and Elbow Tie Up, with neither man looking to break into another hold this time.They jostle for position, with Credible seemingly getting the upper hand, backing Lynn towards a corner of the ring. As they are close to the corner, Jerry quickly turns the tide, swinging Credible around and he pushes Credible into the corner. For the second time tonight, the referee gets in between the two for a clean break, and Lynn looks set to give it. However Credible throws a cheap right hand but Lynn blocked it and hits Credible with a right hand to the chin instead.


    The referee immediately gets out of the way and Lynn keeps Credible in the corner, hammering away with six punches to the face, before kicking him in the gut as well. ‘The New F’n Show’ then resorts to a Knife Edged Chop across Credible’s chest, gaining a huge “WOOOOOOOO” from the crowd. Despite screwing up his face and feeling at his chest, Credible quickly retaliates with a chop of his own, this one getting no real reaction from the crowd. Lynn no sells the blow and lands one chop, two chops, three chops, four chops, five chops, six chops, seven chops, Eight chops, each accompanied by a “WOOOOOOOO” from the crowd.


    As Credible clutches at his beet red chest, Jerry with a slight smirk on his face shakes out his hand, obviously stinging. Mercilessly, he then pushes Credible back into the corner, looking to land another Knife Edged Chop, but the ‘Impact Player’ sticks his thumb straight into Lynn’s eye. With Lynn momentarily blinded, Credible grabs him by the hair and throws him into the corner, before teeing off with hard right hands. Credible lands ten big blows, before kicking Lynn in the gut numerous times. The former ECW Champion then looks out at the crowd, smirking, until he turns back and swings to hit Lynn with a right hand again... BUT LYNN DUCKS AND BACK BODY DROPS CREDIBLE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE APRON... BUT CREDIBLE LANDS ON HIS FEET!!!


    Jerry is initially shocked by the athleticism of Credible, before attempting a right hand but Credible blocks it and lands one of his own. He lands two more, each blow rocking Lynn, allowing him to put him in a Front Facelock... BEFORE HIKING LYNN UP FOR A SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE... BUT LYNN MANAGES TO FIGHT OUT IN MIDAIR... LANDING ON HIS FEET ON THE APRON AS WELL!!!


    There is a round of applause for the move from the ECW faithful, as both men begin swinging wildly at each other with punches. Neither man backs down, blow after blow landing, until Credible resorts to a European Uppercut, halting Jerry in his tracks. With Jerry a little dazed, CREDIBLE LOOKS FOR A SCOOP SLAM ON THE APRON... BUT LYNN SWIVELS DOWN CREDIBLE’S BACK AND LOOKS FOR A REVERSE DDT...NO! CREDIBLE SHOWS TREMENDOUS STRENGTH, LIFTING LYNN UP AND LANDING A MODIFIED HOT SHIT, SENDING JERRY FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!!


    The impact of the blow sends Jerry tumbling off of the apron and to the outside, where he lays in a heap. Meanwhile, the fans all chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, whilst Credible stands triumphantly on the ring apron, enjoyinghis moment of glory. All of a sudden, Jerry Lynn rolls onto his back on the floor, revealing his forehead to be covered in blood, and there’s also a severe puddle of blood on the floor where he was laying face down. Seeing this, Credible jumps off of the apron, mounts Lynn and punches away at the cut. He keeps punching at it, widening the gash, creating a gruesome sight as blood can almost be seen squirting from the cut with every punch.


    His fist full of blood, Credible slowly drags Lynn to his feet, who is clearly concussed, before rolling him back inside of the ring. In full control, the confident Credible follows Jerry into the ring, and immediately stomps right on his cut forehead three times. The fans hate that this is happening to Lynn, but love the brutality so they let out quite a mixed reaction. Surprisingly, Lynn manages to get to his feet, albeit spaghetti legged, so Credible grabs him by the hair, drags him into the corner, and rams his head straight into the turnbuckle. At the point of impact, Credible keeps a hold of Lynn’s hair and rams his head into the corner again and a third time. After the third shot, Credible lets go of Lynn who immediately crumbles to the mat. With Lynn down in the corner, Credible walks away, beginning an animated discussion with the referee, and Francine, who now seems happy with the way things going, begins choking Lynn from outside of the ring.


    Once Francine lets go, the ‘Impact Player’ storms back towards Lynn, dragging him to his feet, only to kick him in the gut and use his hair to drop him face first into the canvas with a Face Buster! All of the offense is towards the head and face of Jerry, who immediately crawls towards the ropes, only for Francine to lean through the ropes and rake the eyes of Jerry.


    Somehow despite the punishment, Lynn uses the ropes to fight to his feet, only to turn and stagger straight into a Scoop Slam from Credible. Justin then heads up to the top rope, waiting for Jerry to get back up, and when he does, Credible leaps off with a Double Axe Handle, but Lynn sidesteps JC and elbows him in the gut. The former champion is winded, and Lynn lands a second elbow, followed by a third, before he now results to landing a Knife Edged Chop and another one. These blows create some distance as Lynn now nearly falls, backing into the ropes to keep his feet. Credible sees this and clearly frustrated charges at Lynn, only for Jerry to sidestep Credible and use his momentum to throw him outside of the ring. Wasting no time, Justin jumps back to his feet on the floor, ONLY FOR LYNN TO COME OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LAND ON HIM WITH A PLANCHA!!!


    After the big move both men remain down on the floor, as the fans once again chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Whilst the chants continue, Jerry grabs onto the crowd barricade to get to his feet, before taking a moment to wipe the blood and matted hair out of his eyes. Lynn looks to make sure that Francine isn’t around, and then brings Credible to his feet, leaning him against the barricade, and he just hammers away with ten brutal right hands. With the barricade being the only thing keeping Credible up, Lynn grabs him and drags him towards the ring, before smashing his face against the ring apron. Credible is now the one looking a little loopy, as he looks set to collapse, but instead Lynn grabs him again, and rams him face first into the ring post. Justin crumbles to the floor but there is no wasted motion now, as Jerry looks underneath the ring and pulls out two steel chairs. Being the furniture expert that he is, Jerry grabs one of the steel chairs... AND HE CRACKS IT RIGHT ACROSS THE BACK OF CREDIBLE... ONCE... TWICE... AND A THIRD TIME WHICH BREAKS THE CHAIR, CAUSING PARTS OF IT TO FLY INTO THE CROWD!!!

    Credible lets out a torturous scream, as Lynn throws the now broken chair to the floor with disdain. As all this occurs, the rabid ECW fans get on the “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants, whilst some of them fight amongst themselves for the pieces of the broken chair. Jerry now grabs Credible and brings him back to his feet before rolling him back into the ring.


    Rather than head straight in after Credible, Lynn takes a moment to pick up the unused steel chair and he throws it inside of the ring. Now Jerry methodically gets onto the ring apron and climbs onto the top rope, but Credible shows off his resilience, meeting Lynn with a right hand. Having Lynn perched on the top rope, Credible climbs up to the top rope himself, and the two have another battle of fists. Both men hammer away at the other, neither relenting, until Lynn gets the upper hand, landing five shots in a row. Credible almost falls off of the top rope, only just clinging on... ALLOWING LYNN TO LEAP OVER AND TAKE HIM DOWN WITH THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!!!


    Lynn remains in position, holding down Credible’s shoulders...

    ........3.......
    NO! CREDIBLE KICKED LYNN OFF OF HIM, BREAKING UP THE COUNT
    !!!!!


    Lynn remains down on the canvas for a moment, shaking his head in disbelief and wiping more blood from his eyes. As Credible isn’t really moving yet, Jerry takes the time to pick up the steel chair and set it up as if somebody were ready to sit on it. He then takes the chair and places it close to one of the corners of the ring. By this stage, JC has managed to use the ropes to begin to pull himself up, but Lynn drags him towards the corner, landing a couple of punches in the process. Once at the corner, Lynn climbs up to the top rope, keeping Credible in a headlock... BEFORE HE LEAPS OFF... LOOKING FOR A TORNADO DDT ONTO THE CHAIR... BUT CREDIBLE HOLDS LYNN LONG ENOUGH IN THE AIR TO DROP HIM GROIN FIRST ONTO THE BACK REST OF THE STEEL CHAIR!!!


    Jerry remains almost pegged on the back rest of the steel chair, as Credible can’t help but smirk at his handy work. The audience reacts massively as well, half of them groaning with Lynn, whilst the other half chants “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. With Lynn still on the back rest, Credible carefully steps onto the part of the chair you would sit on, grabbing Lynn’s head... AND DROPPING HIM OFF OF THE CHAIR WITH A HIGH IMPACT DDT!!!


    Justin pushes the chair out of the way, and pins Lynn, hooking the leg...

    NO! LYNN KICKS OUT, STILL SHOWING SIGNS OF A LOT OF ENERGY
    !!!!!


    As Lynn remains face down on the mat, blood soaking the canvas, Justin turns his attention back to the steel chair with a sadistic grin on his face. He picks up the chair and flattens it before laying it onto the canvas, and dragging Lynn back up to his feet. JUSTIN LOOKS TO LAND A VERTICAL SUPLEX ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR... BUT LYNN SHAKES HIS WAY OUT OF IT... LANDING BEHIND CREDIBLE AND GOING FOR A REVERSE DDT! NO! CREDIBLE SPINS TO FACE THE CANVAS BEFORE LOOKING FOR A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX... BUT IT’S REVERSED IN MID AIR AND LYNN DROPS CREDIBLE WITH A SWINGING DDT ON THE STEEL CHAIR!!!


    Some actual quality wrestling on an ECW show gets some cheers, followed by more chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. ‘The New F’n Show’ remains down for a moment or two, wiping some more blood and sweat from his forehead, before rolling onto Justin for the cover...


    ...

    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! CREDIBLE SHOOTS A SHOULDER OFF OF THE CANVAS AT THE LAST SECOND
    !!!!!


    Jerry Lynn shakes his head, running his hands through his hair, looking disappointed. The fans murmur a little as this is the first sign Lynn has showed tonight of being the unhinged guy he has been over the past few weeks. Jerry takes another moment to recompose himself before he goes to grab Credible to his feet, but the former ECW Champion shrugs him off. JC then kicks Lynn in the gut... AND LOOKS FOR THE THAT’S INCREDIBLE... BUT LYNN KICKS HIS LEGS AS HE’S UPSIDE DOWN AND LEANS BACK, REVERSING POSITIONS SO HE IS NOW HOLDING CREDIBLE UPSIDE DOWN... SO HE DROPS CREDIBLE WITH A TOMBSTONE!!!


    Rather than going for the cover, Jerry gets up to his feet, smiling at the fans before raising his hands in the air, signalling that he is going to attempt the Cradle Piledriver. Lynn waits patiently, motioning with his hands for Credible to get up, but Justin has only managed to roll onto his stomach. Eventually Lynn gets frustrated, dragging Credible up, GOING FOR THE CRADLE PILEDRIVER... CREDIBLE REVERSES INTO A BACK BODY DROP... HOWEVER LYNN HANGS ON FOR THE CRADLE SUNSETFLIP!!!


    Credible manages to stay on his feet, swaying to keep his balance, as Lynn continues to give it his all to roll Credible over. Credible begins to get very unsteady, ready to collapse, WHEN FRANCINE THROWS HIM THE SINGAPORE CANE FROM OUTSIDE OFTHE RING... HE CATCHES THE SINGAPORE CANE AND SMASHES IT ACROSS THE HEAD OF LYNN!!!


    HE THEN DROPS TO HIS KNEES, LOOKING FOR A SUNSETFLIP CUTBACK...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! LYNN JUST KICKS OUT, ROLLING CREDIBLE OFF OF HIM IN THE PROCESS
    !!!!!


    Obviously after the Singapore Cane shot, Lynn is spent and remains on the canvas, whilst Credible gets up, snarling at his downed opponent. The former ECW Champion looks at the fans, yelling “IT’S OVER NOW”, signalling with his hands that it is done as well. The fans are all chanting “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” as Credible picks up the Singapore Cane, cocking it like a baseball at. Credible waits for Jerry to get up, measuring him with the Singapore Cane... BEFORE HE SWINGS WITH THE SINGAPORE CANE... BUT JERRY DUCKS, KICKS CREDIBLE IN THE GUT... AND HAS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE CRADLE PILDEDRIVER... BUT BEFORE HE CAN LIFT CREDIBLE UP, FRANCINE SLIDES INSIDE OFTHE RING AND JUMPS ONTO JERRY’S BACK!!!


    The heat that erupts throughout the arena is unreal, as Francine claws at Jerry’s eyes, causing Lynn to immediately drop Credible to the canvas. Lynn staggers around the ring with Francine clinging onto his back, yelling and screaming as he does so. Every time he reached back to grab her, she moves her head away, preventing contact. Eventually Lynn backs into the corner, so Francine can no longer move, he then reaches back, grabs her by the hair and flips her off of him and onto the canvas.


    There is a big time pop for that move as Francine hits the deck, and Lynn immediately grabs her by the hair, ignoring her squealing. Jerry puts her between his legs, SETTING HER UP FOR THE CRADE PILEDRIVER... BUT HE QUICKLY DROPS HER... AND INSTINCTIVELY DUCKS, AVOIDING A SINGAPORE CANE SHOT FROM CREDIBLE... LYNN THEN KICKS CREDIBLE IN THE GUT... AND THIS TIME HE SUCCESSFULLY NAILS CREDIBLE WITH THE CRADLE PILEDRIVER!!!


    Jerry instantly crawls over, laying his body over Credible’s with the lateral press...

    NO! JUSTIN CREDIBLE MANAGES TO GET A FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE TO STOP THE REFEREE’S COUNT
    !!!!!


    Jerry’s jaw drops and his eyes open wide, as he looks at referee HC Loc, stating “THAT WAS A THREE COUNT”. The referee points to the bottom rope where Credible’s foot lays, confirming that it was a two count. Lynn damn near rips his hair out, as he removes his hand from his hair, revealing bits of blonde hair tangled amongst his fingers. He looks at Credible, who still hasn’t moved, before getting up and he shoves referee HC Loc. The referee looks scared, shaking his head and holding his hands in the air, not wanting to fight. Lynn now turns his attention towards Francine, dragging her back up by her hair, and he throws her through the middle rope to the outside. As Francine lands on her ass on the outside, Lynn yells at her, “STAY THE FUCK OUT OF MY RING”! Jerry now picks up the Singapore Cane, getting huge cheers from the fans, as he waits for Credible to get up... AND LYNN FINALLY LANDS A SINGAPORE CANE BLOW RIGHT ACROSS THE SKULL OF JUSTIN CREDIBLE!!!


    Credible crumbles to the mat, lifeless, as the fans once again chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The referee almost tries to urge Lynn to make the cover, but Jerry shakes his head, still holding onto the out of shape Singapore Cane. Jerry then looks towards Credible, standing over him, and lets out a primal roar. HE THEN BEGINS WHALING ON CREDIBLE WITH THE SINGAPORE CANE, LANDING BLOW AFTER BLOW AFTER BLOW ACROSS THE HEAD, BODY AND LEGS UNTIL THE SINGAPORE CANE SNAPS IN TWO!!!


    The former ECW Champion is in absolute agony, rolling around, clutching at his ribs and back, which have huge abrasion marks. Lynn drops the half of the Singapore Cane that is still in his hand, staring at it as it drops to the canvas. He then looks down at the unmoving Credible and looks set to land the killer blow. He hoists Credible up from the canvas, PUTTING HIM IN POSITION FOR THE CRADLE PILEDRIVER... BUT THE DEAD WEIGHT OF CREDIBLE DROPS DOWN... AND JUSTIN THEN LANDS A LOW BLOW TO LYNN OUT OF NOWHERE!!!


    Jerry drops to his knees, holding onto his private parts, clearly feeling the effects of the low blow. As he’s moaning and groaning in pain, Credible begins crawling across the ring, towards the half of the Singapore Cane which flew away from Lynn when it broke. The fans are almost urging Lynn on, as Credible gets closer and closer to the Singapore Cane. Finally he gets there, and Credible puts a hand on the broken half of the Singapore Cane... BUT HE GETS MET WITH A STEEL CHAIR SHOT ACROSS THE BACK FROM JERRY LYNN!


    Credible relinquishes his grip on half of the Singapore Cane, dropping flat to the canvas. The fans once again get amongst the “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” chants as Lynn throws the steel chair to the other side of the ring, and he drags Credible to where he wants him. With his opponent basically being dead weight now, Lynn takes a bit of time to roll him over so Credible is lying on his back. Now with Credible down and Francine to scared to get involved on the outside, Lynn slowly steps onto the apron, before climbing upto the top rope. Once he’s at the top rope, he takes a moment, surveying the crowd... BEFORE LEAPING OFF WITH A FROG SPLASH... BUT CREDIBLE MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND!!!

    The Frog Splash attempt crash and burns and Lynn rolls around the ring, holding his midsection and gasping for air. On the other hand, Credible has managed to continue to move across the ring, now using the ropes to pull himself back up. The ‘Impact Player’ yanks himself to his feet, using the ropes to remain standing, before bending down and picking up the steel chair. He methodically walks towards Lynn, whose manages to make it up to his knees, SO CREDIBLE HOLDS THE CHAIR ABOVE HIS HEAD, READY TO SWING... WHEN LYNN STABS CREDIBLE IN THE STOMACH WITH ONE OF THE BROKEN ENDS OF THE SINGAPORE CANE!!!


    The blow forces Credible to drop the steel chair and grab a hold of his stomach, clearly struggling to gain air. As Credible continues to gasp for air, Jerry gets back up to his feet and he kicks the steel chair across the ring and out of Credible’s reach. ‘The New F’n Show’ continues to hold onto the Singapore Cane though...SO HE CRACKS IT ACROSS THE BACK OF CREDIBLE!!!


    Gasps and groans come from the audience now, as Justin arches his back, trying to reach for it with his hand, screaming in pain. Meanwhile, Lynn has a cruel smile on his face, picking splinters out of his hand as the half of the Singapore Cane he used has actually crumbled into pieces. Surprisingly, Credible is in the middle of the ring, not using the ropes and slowly making his way up. Jerry Lynn looks a little shocked, before nodding, almost pleading with Credible to get to his feet. When Credible gets to his feet, he is dazed, so LYNN BOUNCES OFF OF THE ROPES AND ATTACKS WITH A FLYING HEADSCISSORS... BUT AS LYNN IS UPSIDE DOWN... CREDIBLE SHOWS AMAZING STREGNTH... HOLDING LYNN IN PLACE AND NOT ALLOWING HIM TO FINISH THE MOVE!!!


    Credible is holding Lynn upside down, before taking a couple of steps to get in the correct position... AND HE LANDS THE THAT’S INCREDIBLE RIGHT ON THE STEEL CHAIR!!!


    Jerry Lynn is down and out, as Credible collapses to the mat as well, having used his last ounce of strength to land that move. Credible manages to crawl over to Lynn, and lay an arm across his chest...

    WINNER – Justin Credible by pinfall @ 19:04



    The bell rings and the fans boo the hell out of the result, very unhappy with the fact that Justin Credible has managed to pick up the victory. Initially, neither Credible nor Lynn moves, remaining in the same position, as the confused HC Loc raises Credible’s hand, still getting very little response.

    Once the referee lets go of Credible’s hand, it slaps the mat and this seems to slap Justin back into reality. He has a weary look on his face as he slowly uses the ropes to drag himself back to his feet.

    To further put across the fact he is victorious, the referee raises his hand. Despite the pain he is feeling as he grabs at various parts of his body, Credible lets out a shit eating grin which gets more heat from the fans.

    The former ECW Champion now slowly climbs up to the top rope, closing his eyes and raising both hands above his head. This gains even more heat but he doesn’t mind now, as he signals that the only thing left to do now is to put the ECW Championshipback around his waist.

    Joey Styles: I don’t even know what to say, I honestly can’t believe this. Justin Credible has defeated Jerry Lynn in a hellacious match. Sorry folks, I’m a little speechless here, I thought tonight was the night; Jerry Lynn would finally get his revenge on Justin Credible. Unfortunately for Lynn, it hasn’t gone that way!

    A battered and beaten Francine hops into the ring as well, clearly struggling with a couple of the bumps she took throughout the match. Beside the point, she still seems to be in a giddy mood, as she runs a hand across Credible’s chest, before giving him around of applause.

    The heat only thickens with Francine involved in the celebration as well, and they continue to motion for the ECW Championship.

    Eventually they head to the back and Credible’s music dies down, leaving Jerry Lynn inside the ring by himself. Jerry has managed to get back to his feet and has a mixture of emotions across his face. Anger, disappointment, shock and embarrassment just to name a few.

    Even though he lost, the fans know they have seen one hell of an effort from Lynn. As he stands with his hands on hips, the fans give him a round of applause and chant “JERRY LYNN”, “JERRY LYNN”, “JERRY LYNN”.

    The chants from the most passionate fans in the world can’t even cheer up Lynn tonight, as he completely ignores the reaction. Instead, he puts his head down, climbs out of the ring and walks straight to the back, refusing to look at anybody...

    ...

    It’s time for our final video package of the night before the main event...

    ECW Guilty As Charged
    January 7th on PPV


    ***



    ***Roadhouse Blues*** gets an EXTREMELY LOUD pop, as‘The Extreme Luchadore’ SUPER CRAZY monkey rolls through the curtain. As Crazy bounces back to his feet, he yells out something ineligible in Mexican, before sprinting towards the ring. The cheers continue to ring out for the challenger in tonight’s main event, as he slides into the ring, and climbs up to the top rope. Crazy jumps around in the ring, living up to his name, all for the enjoyment of the fans, whilst waiting for his opponent.

    ***Smack My Bitch Up*** garners an EVEN LOUDER pop, with the arena shaking as ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ YOSHIHIRO TAJIRI makes his way out for his first ECW Championship defence on PPV. He has the title around his waist, almost stalking down the ramp, before he slides into the ring and raises his ECW Title over his head. Once he hands the title to the referee, Tajiri goes face to face with Super Crazy, ready to renew hostilities.

    Match Seven
    Two Out Of Three Falls Match
    ECW Championship Match
    Yoshihiro Tajiri (c) vs. Super Crazy


    The bell rings and the two rivals remain face to face, neither ready to make their first move to fast. Eventually they lock up with a Collar an Elbow Tie Up, jostling for position, but neither can gain an advantage and they break. They immediately lock up with a Collar an Elbow Tie Up again, but this time Tajiriq uickly transitions into a Side Headlock. He remains yanking on the neck of Crazy, leaning back using all of his leverage, as Crazy screws up his face in agony. Super Crazy manages to grab Tajiri’s arm in a Key Lock, and he uses that to manoeuvre out of the Side Headlock. The Mexican then turns it into a Hammer Lock, applying the pressure, as Tajiri grabs at his left arm. Still in pain, the ECW Champion bends down, reaching between his legs and grabs one of Crazy’s feet, tripping him up. As Super Crazy lands flat on his back, Tajiri immediately scoots over him and applies a Side Headlock on the canvas.

    Unlike the mat work from the heels earlier in the night, they continue to move at a fast pace, keeping the fans entertained. Super Crazy manages to work his way to his feet, manoeuvring his shoulder underneath the chest of Tajiri, and he tosses him to the mat with a Judo Throw. With Tajiri down, Crazy immediately grabs Tajiri’s leg and steps over for a Figure Four Leg Lock, which Tajiri immediately reverses into a Small Cradle, but Crazy rolls out before the referee can even count to one.


    Both men bounce straight back up to their feet and Tajiri wrings the arm of Crazy, keeping him in pain. Crazy reaches towards the ropes but every time he gets close, Tajiri will yank at the arm, keeping him in the centre of the ring. As the pressure on the arm continues, Super Crazy drops to a knee, and Tajirit ransitions into a Key Lock. He uses the Key Lock to drop Crazy to his back, but the Mexican kips up and shrugs Tajiri off of him.


    Immediately Crazy charges at Tajiri now, but Tajiri swings wildly with a Clothesline, however Crazy ducks, before bouncing off of the other ropes and landing a Shoulder Block. Tajiri drops to the canvas as ‘The Extreme Luchadore’ bounces off of the ropes again, but Tajiri kips up, and leaps over Crazy, before they both turn and look each other and attempt Dropkicks at the same time. Both men crash to the canvas and again, get up to their feet really quickly, before Super Crazy drops Tajiri with a Crossbody!


    The electric Super Crazy gets straight back up and rushes Tajiri to his feet again, before attempting to send him to the ropes. Tajiri reverses, sending Crazy bouncing off the ropes but Crazy returns with a big time Hurricanrana! Again Crazy is straight back to his feet and so is Tajiri, so Crazy throws him across the ring with an Arm Drag. The commentators put over the adrenaline of Tajiri as he is automatically straight to his feet again, so Crazy drops him with another Arm Drag. This time Tajiri actually remains on the canvas for a moment or two, which causes the slightly sadistic Crazy to smirk. He then waits for the ECW Champion to get to his feet, and when Tajiri does, Crazy charges across the ring, leaping up, and landing a Tilt A Whirl Head scissors Takedown!


    Cheers of appreciation come from the fans as they enjoy the pace of the action picking up. Super Crazy gets up, signalling that the ECW Championship will soon be coming around his waist, as a frustrated Tajiri shakes his head. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ continues to shake his head as he uses the ropes to pull himself up,and Crazy motions for him to bring it. They charge at each other at full pace, with Tajiri landing some sharp punches with both hands, before leaping up and taking Crazy down with a Dropkick. This time it’s Crazy’s turn to get straight back to his feet, so Tajiri charges at him, dropping him with a Spinning Heel Kick!


    The fans cheer the hell out of Tajiri proving he can go fast paced as well, as now he waits for a frustrated Super Crazy to get to his feet. When he does, Yoshihiro charges at Crazy, but Crazy goes for a Clothesline which Tajiri ducks. Tajiri then bounces off of the ropes and manages to come back with a Tilt A Whirl ArmDrag which sends Crazy tumbling across the ring and underneath the bottom rope.


    Outside of the ring, Super Crazy remains down for a moment or two, regaining his wits, before using the ring apron to pull himself back to his feet. Sensing his opportunity, Tajiri sprints across the ring... LOOKING FOR A BASEBALL SLIDE...BUT SUPER CRAZY AVOIDS THE COLLISION!!!


    In an instant, Super Crazy slides back into the ring and Tajiri is left on the outside. Now the ECW Champion shows his quickness, immediately sliding into the ring, only to meet a charging Crazy. Tajiri manages to BE SET FOR A TILT AWHIRL BACKBREAKER... BUT CRAZY LANDS ON HIS FEET... AND FLIPS TAJIRI ONTO HIS BACK WITH A MONKEY FLIP!!!


    Still none of those famous chants yet, but the fans applaud the awesome exchange of quickness and intelligence between the two competitors. As he clutches at his back, feeling the impact of the canvas, Tajiri rolls out of the ring. He shakes his head on the outside, wanting to rethink his strategy, but Crazy immediatelycharges across the ring, looking for a Baseball Slide Dropkick! The quick thinking Tajiri is able to duck the blow, before quickly shoving Super Crazy, causing him to stagger and almost stagger into the crowd barricade. Crazy manages to stop himself, using his hands to halt his momentum, before he turns STRAIGHT INTO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE MOUTH FROM THE ECW CHAMPION!!!


    Bits of saliva can be seen coming out of Crazy’s mouth as he drops to the floor, allowing the fans to take a breath, and break out into chants of “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Despite being a fan favourite, Tajiri shows no mercy, signalling that his ECW Championship will be staying around his waist and then immediately dragging Crazy up by the hair and rolling him into the ring. A few of the fans at ringside yell out to Tajiri, offering weapons but he ignores them, instead deciding to roll back into the ring empty handed. Once he gets back into the ring, Tajiri watches Crazy remain seated in the ring, clearly still dazed. Tajiri takes a moment or two to size him up, before punting Crazy right in the spine. A seated Crazy yells out in pain and shock, as the fans gasp at the echo of the sound of the blow. With Crazy still in pain, Tajiri lands another brutal kick to the spine, causing just as much pain as the first one. Huge red marks can be seen on the back of Crazy, as he continues to grab at it, which allows Tajiri to walk around to look Crazy in the eyes. The Mexican has managed to get himself onto his knees, but this allows Tajiri to throw another brutal kick, this one straight into the chest of Crazy... This time as soon as Crazy tilts his head back in excruciating pain,Tajiri lands a second hard kick to the chest.


    The impact of this blow actually causes Crazy to fall straight back down to his back.Tajiri then quickly rolls him over onto his stomach, before locking in an STF. Crazy is forced to yell out again, unable to escape the hold, as Tajiri continues to yank at the hold, really applying the pressure. Crazy has no chance of getting to the ropes and actually raises his hand, ready to tap, so Tajiri applies even more pressure, until Crazy manages to roll into a modified cover... But before the referee can even make the count, Tajiri breaks the hold. The fresher of the two, the ECW Champion gets straight back to his feet, but Crazy, on his knees, meets him with a massive overhand chop to the chest. A huge “WOOOOOO” echoes throughout the arena, as Crazy lands a second and third chop, before getting to his feet. Once he is to his feet, Crazy lands another chop, but Tajiri lands one back. They both land another each and continue to trade chops, Crazy, Tajiri, Crazy, Tajiri, Tajiri, Tajiri... Tajiri now changes things up, landing multiple rapid fire body punches and kicks, causing Crazy to bend over and clutch at his stomach.


    With Crazy down... TAJIRI BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES... LOOKING FOR THE HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW... BUT CRAZY CATCHES HIM WITH A SPINNING BACK SUPLEX!!!


    The awesome counter is greeted with more chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”. Feeling a little worse for wear, there is no wasted motion now, as Super Crazy immediately gets back to his feet and heads up to the top rope. He waits for the ECW Champion to get to his feet and when he does... CRAZY LEAPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE WITH A DROPKICK... TAJIRI SIDESTEPS AND AVOIDS CONTACT!!!


    Crazy crashes and burns, landing in a heap on the mat, AND TAJIRI QUICKLY JUMPS ON HIM WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT!!!


    Tajiri remains on top of Crazy for a modified lateral press cover...

    NO! SUPER KICKS OUT, STILL WITH PLENTY LEFT IN THE TANK
    !!!!!


    ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ doesn’t get overly frustrated, instead just getting back up, mulling over his next move. He stares down at Crazy, until Crazy manages to get to one knee, and then Tajiri takes him back down with a Shining Wizard! Surprisingly, Crazy shows signs of life straight away, crawling to the ropes and trying to pull himself back up. Tajiri calmly waits for Crazy to get up, before charging at him, but this time Crazy is able to drop him with a Tilt A Whirl Backbreaker!


    For the first time tonight, the pace slows back down and neither man is able to bounce back to their feet straight away. They both crawl to the middle of the ring, meeting each other, and they use each other to get back to their feet. Once they are up, Tajiri swings with a right hand but Crazy ducks and lands a forearm to the head. He follows with another and another, rocking Tajiri, before sending him into the ropes. When Tajiri bounces back, Crazy swings with a Clothesline...BUT TAJIRI DUCKS AND SWINGS AROUND, LOCKING IN THE OCTOPUS HOLD!!!


    Tajiri has the hold locked in, stretching the vertical Super Crazy, trying to force him to submit. With the pressure applied and knowing he hasn’t got long, Crazy shows a tremendous amount of strength and resiliency, carrying himself to the ropes. He latches onto the ropes and the referee begins to try and get Tajiri to break the hold. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ uses the ropes to hang towards the apron, LOOKING TO LOCK IN THE TARANTULA!!!


    Crazy thinks fast, contorting his body to get his feet back inside of the ring so Tajiri can’t lock in the hold. Tajiri continues to try and reach Crazy’s feet, and with this diverting Tajiri’s attention, Crazy is able to free his arms from the ropes. Once his arms are free, with Tajiri still hanging upside down on the apron, Crazy grabs Tajiri’s legs... AND SMASHES HIM BACK INTO THE RING WITH A MODIFIED ALABAMA SLAM!!!


    An epic “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chant rings out for the high impact move, as Tajiri lays motionless in the centre of the ring. Crazy takes a moment to stretch out his body a little, before heading to the bottom rope... AND CONNECTING WITH A BOTTOM ROPE MOONSAULT!!!


    Sensing his chance, ‘The Extreme Luchadore’ is straight back to his feet and he leaps up to the second rope, but Tajiri rolls outside of the ring. Crazy still leaps, looking for the Middle Rope Moonsault, but in midair he sees Tajiri is gone, and lands on his feet. The fans applaud the athleticism as Tajiri tries to catch his breath on the outside, only to get drilled in the head with a Baseball Slide Dropkick!


    The impact of the blow sends Tajiri flying into and over the railing, to the point where he is basically lying on the laps of the front row of the crowd. Seeing this, Crazy walks over and pulls the crowd barricade a little closer to the ring. The audience immediately begins buzzing as Crazy then heads onto the ring apron...BEFORE LEAPING OFF... LANDING AN ASAI MOONSAULT ONTO TAJIRI IN THE CROWD!!!


    Both men are damn near out of it in the crowd as the fans who are still standing chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. After what feels like an eternity, Crazy uses the fans to get to his feet, and he uses all of his energy to hoist Tajiri back over the barricade to ringside. Once Tajiri is down at ringside, Super Crazy just manages to roll a leg over the crowd barricade, heaving his own body over and falling on the concrete floor at ringside. Both men remain down on the floor for a little while, allowing the referee to check on both men. Eventually Crazy uses the ring apron to get to his feet, before lifting up the dead weight of Tajiri and almost having to shove him into the ring. Once he gets back in himself, Crazy brings Tajiri to his feet, allowing him to stagger, and then landing three Knife Edged Chops, followed by some sharp leg kicks. Almost out of instinct, Tajiri responds with some leg kicks of his own and the two continue to trade, until Tajiri lands a hard kick to the chest, dropping Crazy.

    Nobody can believe Tajiri is the one standing right now, as he slowly walks towards theropes, before collapsing to one knee. He takes a moment before getting back up and slowly heads to the apron, before climbing up to the top rope, but he takes too long, AND CRAZY LEAPS UP HIGH, DROPKICKING TAJIRI IN THE CHEST, CROTCHING HIM ON THE TOP ROPE!!!


    With Tajiri out of it on the top rope, finally feeling the effects of all of the big moves he has received, Crazy is able to lie on the canvas for a moment. Once he has caught his breath, The Mexican gets to his feet and climbs up to the top rope, meeting Tajiri there. He hammers away with six big punches, keeping Tajiri dazed on the top rope... CRAZY THEN LEAPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE... TAKING TAJIRI DOWN WITH A FRANKENSTEINER... BUT TAJIRI USES THE MOMENTUM TO ROLL THROUGH INTO A SUNSET FLIP OUT OF NOWHERE...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................

    NO! CRAZY JUST KICKS OUT
    !!!!!


    Even though the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” after the high risk move, neither one of these machines stops the action. As soon as Crazy kicks out, he gets up and GETS HIS OWN STACK PIN ON TAJIRI... BUT TAJIRI ROLLS BACKWARDS TO ESCAPE BEFORE THE REFEREE COUNTS TO ONE!!!


    Somehow, almost as if they have only just begun wrestling, both men jump back to their feet, ready to go. Super Crazy bounces himself off of the ropes for momentum, but he runs straight into Tajiri, WHO TILT A WHIRLS HIM... BUT CRAZY INCREDIBLY ADJUSTS HIMSELF IN MID AIR... AND COMES DOWN FROM THE TITL A WHIRL WITH AN UNLIKELY INSIDE CRADLE...

    FIRST FALL – Super Crazy by pinfall @ 13:40


    As soon as the count finishes, Tajiri puts his hands on his head in despair, whilst Super Crazy jumps to his feet and pumps his fist in celebration. Meanwhile on commentary, Joey Styles states “if not for the two out of three falls stipulation, Super Crazy would be the NEW ECW Champion right now”!


    Crazy now yells out to the crowd, not realising that a furious Tajiri is back to his feet, AND THE CHAMPION DROPS CRAZY WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!


    The man in the lead drops as if he’s dead, leading to the fans chanting “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” yet again. With Crazy down face first on the canvas,Yoshihiro viciously stomps on the head of Crazy, once, twice and a third time! He then brings the defenceless Crazy back to his feet, before drilling with a KARATE RUSH, landing multiple strikes with all limbs. This causes Crazy to drop to his knees and Tajiri TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A BUZZSAW KICK!!!


    Crazy drops but Tajiri drags him back up to his knees... AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH ANOTHER BUZZSAW KICK!!!


    Again, rather than make the cover, the vicious Tajiri drags Crazy up to his feet, before hoisting him in the air... SENDING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A BRAINBUSTER!!!


    Now the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” as Tajiri hooks the leg...

    SECOND FALL – Yoshihiro Tajiri by pinfall @ 14:28


    The scores are now tied at one a piece, and sensing the urgency, Super Crazy begins crawling towards the ropes. Tajiri immediately stops him though and tosses him through the middle rope and to the outside. With Crazy trying to use the crowd barricade to get to his feet, Tajiri steps out onto the apron, and when Crazy gets to his feet, TAJIRI LEAPS OFF OF THE APRON, LANDING AN ASAI MOONSAULT ON CRAZY!!!


    “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants echo throughout the arena again, as the determined ECW Champion gets up to his feet relatively quickly. Tajiri clutches at his mid section for a second, before dragging Crazy up to his feet and rolling him onto the Timekeeper’s table. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ then gets onto the table himself, and wraps his hand around the throat of Crazy, choking him out. Crazy’s tongue is damn near coming out of his mouth as he begins turning purple, when Tajiri breaks his grip and hammers away with four right hands. Tajiri stops for a moment, looking at the referee who is ushering them back to the ring, and this allows Crazy to roll off of the table and back onto the floor. There is a bit of heat for no table spot from the audience, as Crazy begins attempting to use the table to get up... BUT TAJIRI SPRINTS AT THE TABLE, DROPKICKING IT RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF CRAZY!!!


    Once again, those “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants break out, the fans enjoying the relentless champion. As Crazy remains laying on his back, looking at the stars and clutching at his forehead, Tajiri climbs onto the apron, watching his fallen opponent. With no emotion in his face, TAJIRI LEAPS OFF OF THE APRON, LANDING WITH A DOUBLE STOMP ACROSS THE CHEST OF HIS OPPONENT!!!


    This audience are off the charts as they chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” again for the high risk move. Whilst Super Crazy reels on the floor, feeling at his mid section, Tajiri sets himself, slowly stalking Crazy, before landing a swift, hard kick to his spine. ‘The Extreme Luchadore’ lets out a yell in agony, which seems to encourage Tajiri, who lands a second brutal punt to the spine. Now that Super is immobilised, Tajiri looks under the ring and pulls out two steel chairs. A pop comes from the crowd as Tajiri keeps one of the chairs in his possession, waiting for Crazy to get up... AND HE THROWS THE CHAIR STRAIGHT INTO CRAZY’S FACE!!!


    Instead of dropping straight to the floor, Crazy staggers backwards into the crowd barricade, using it to maintain his footing. Still dizzy, Crazy staggers towards the champion, who picks up the second steel chair... AND THROWS THAT ONE INTO THE HEAD OF CRAZY AS WELL!!!


    Despite the hardcore spot, there are no chants from the fans as they give themselves a break. Realising he could be ready for the final fall, Tajiri hoists the dead weight of Super Crazy up and rolls him into the ring. He then takes a breather, hands on his knees, showing the effects the match has had on him as well. Slowly, the champion walks up the steel steps and gets onto the ring apron...ONLY FOR A SOMEHOW RECOVERED SC TO RUN ACROSS THE RING AND LAND A DROPKICK TO TAJIRI!!!


    Tajiri collapses from the blow but remains on the ring apron, whilst Super Crazy stays down after the desperation move. Both men are completely out of it as the fans give them a standing ovation, and then finally, Crazy rolls underneath the bottom rope, joining his opponent on the apron. Super Crazy gets to his feet and decides not to waste energy, waiting for Tajiri to get to his feet, before getting a Front Facelock and lifting him up for a Vertical Suplex, but placing him on the top rope. The audience is buzzing once again, as Tajiri is on the top rope, facing the floor, and The Mexican slowly climbs up to the top rope himself. With Tajiri showing no signs of movement, CRAZY JUMPS UP AND LANDS A FRANKENSTEINER WHICH SENDS BOTH MEN THROUGH THE TIMEKEEPER’S TABLE!!!


    Holy shit! Both men are down as the LOUDEST chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” are heard for the night. They remain down for quite a few moments before they both crawl towards the ring, using the apron to drag themselves back up. Both men get up and roll into the ring at the same time. Cheers from the crowd just won’t stop, as both men show plenty of heart, getting to their feet, only for Crazy to nail Tajiri with a Dropkick. Getting an adrenaline rush, Crazy immediately brings Tajiri back up to his feet, and lands a Scoop Slam in the corner... THE MEXICAN THEN CLIMBS UP AND LANDS THE BOTTOM ROPE MOONSAULT!!!


    He bounces back to his feet, AND UP TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, COMING OFF WITH THE MIDDLE ROPE MOONSAULT!!!


    Crazy is back up to his feet again, and this time he leaps to the top rope... BEFORE JUMPING OFF WITH THE TOP ROPE MOONSAULT WHICH LANDS!!!


    He stays on top for the cover...

    Super Crazy begins ripping his hair out, eyes wide in shock, not believing that Tajiri managed to stay in the match. Meanwhile, once again, the fans show their support, chanting “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. He then gets up before slowly putting Tajiri between his legs, attempting a Powerbomb... Tajiri counters, attempting a Sunset Flip... Crazy sits down on it with the cutback cover...

    This time it’s Tajiri who can’t believe it, as he looks at the referee, pleading that it was a three count. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ then gets up, bringing Crazy to his feet by the hair... AND ATTEMPTS A BRAINBUSTER... BUT CRAZY KICKS HIS LEGS IN MID AIR... CAUSING TAJIRI TO PUT HIM BACK DOWN... AND CRAZY LIFTS TAJIRI UP, NAILING HIM WITH A BRAINBUSTER INSTEAD!!!


    Both men remain down, and Crazy places an arm over Tajiri’s chest...

    There is no wasted motion this time, as Crazy shakes his head in frustration, but immediately gets back up. Tajiri hasn’t moved, so Crazy grabs him, brings him up to a vertical base... AND PLANTS HIM WITH A RICOLA BOMB!!!


    Crazy hooks the leg with the pin...

    Super Crazy pounds the canvas in annoyance this time, until he gets up and thinks about his next move. He then drags Tajiri back up, and Scoop Slams him to the mat. The Mexican then steps out onto the apron... BEFORE GOING FOR THE DOUBLE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT... BUT TAJIRI GETS HIS KNEES UP!!!


    As Crazy crashes and burns, remaining on his knees, gasping for airs, Tajiri rolls to the other side of the ring, pulling himself up with the ropes. The ECW Champion then SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING, HITTING CRAZY WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK!!!


    After landing, Tajiri quickly makes the cover...

    NO! TAJIRI KICKS OUT YET AGAIN
    !!!!!


    Crazy is up first this time, and he runs off the ropes, BEFORE HITTING TAJIRI WITH HIS OWN BASEMENT DROPKICK!!!


    Tajiri is down on the canvas but immediately begins stirring, whilst Crazy gets back up and begins walking towards the corner. As the fans cheer him on, Crazy climbs onto the ring apron, before heading up to the top rope... ONLY FOR TAJIRI TO NIP UP AND PUSH CRAZY OFF OF THE TOP ROPE...SENDING HIM CHEST FIRST INTO THE CROWD BARRICADE!!!


    After the huge impact, Crazy remains almost frozen to the spot, arms in a member of the audiences lap, as his chest remains hung over the crowd barricade. The ECW Champion watches on from inside the ring as the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. This allows Tajiri to take a breather, before he signals to the crowd that the title will be staying around his waist. With Super beginning to stir, Tajiri slowly climbs up to the top rope, crouching, holding onto the ring post, and when Crazy stands up and turns towards the ring... TAJIRI JUMPS OFF OF THE TOP ROPE, TAKING OUT CRAZY WITH A FLIPPING SENTON!!!


    The “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants never stop, as they continue after the huge move from Tajiri. Surprisingly, ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ is to his feet quickly, before heading under the ring. After a few moments, he comes back out with a table and slides it inside of the ring. Super Crazy is still down and out so Tajiri brings him back to his feet and rolls him inside of the ring. Once inside, Crazy still doesn’t move so Tajiri follows in and grabs the table, placing it over the middle turnbuckle, almost like a platform. Still showing no mercy, the champion drags Crazy to his feet again, taking him to the corner, before Tajiri steps onto the table, and he goes for a Tornado DDT off of the table but Crazy hurls him across the ring in mid air!


    Big time pop as Crazy barely manages to stay on his feet, dazed, as TAJIRI REBOUNDS AND CHARGES AT HIM... BUT CRAZY LANDS A DROP TOE HOLD WHICH SENDS TAJIRI FACE FIRST INTO THE TABLE!!!


    Now Tajiri is down and out, whilst Crazy seems to have gotten another wind. He immediately turns his attention towards the table, ripping it off of the middle turnbuckle and he sets it up properly close to the corner. With Tajiri still out of it, it’s easy for Crazy to grab Tajiri in a Scoop Slam position and place him on the table. The Mexican slowly heads to the corner and climbs up to the top rope, potentially looking for a Moonsault... BUT TAJIRI GETS UP LEAPS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE... AND KICKS CRAZY’S KNEE OUT!!!


    Super Crazy loses his footing, falling into a Tree of Woe position, and he has no way of getting free. The referee almost looks as if he is ready to help him get out, but Tajiri jumps off the ropes and motions for the ref to go away. Tajiri quickly grabs the table and pushes it into the chest of Crazy, keeping him pinned in the corner. The champion then heads to the other side of the ring, before CHARGING TOWARDS CRAZY, LANDING A TREE OF WOE DROPKICK BY SLIDING UNDER THE TABLE!!!


    The impact of the move causes Crazy’s legs to unhook themselves and he collapses onto the table. Meanwhile Tajiri pushes the table away from the corner; just enough to give him access to climb up to the top rope. It’s a slow climb as Tajiri gets up to the top rope, almost losing his balance, which allows SUPER CRAZY TO STAND UP ON THE TABLE, HOOK TAJIRI IN POSITION... AND NAIL A SUPERPLEX OFF OF THE TOP ROPE AND TABLE TO THE CANVAS!!!


    Both men remain down, as the fans chant “ECDUBBYA” ,”ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” and on commentary, Joey Styles mentions that both men are lucky they didn’t go through the table there. A standing ovation breaks out as after little to no movement for thirty seconds, both men use each other to leverage themselves to their feet in the middle of the ring. Once they are up, Crazy kicks into gear, landing rapid fire punches and slaps to the body and head of Tajiri, but instead of being rocked, Tajiri responds with even harder punches and slaps, rocking Crazy. With Crazy struggling and backing up, TAJIRI THROWS A KICK...CRAZY DUCKS AND LANDS A GERMAN SUPLEX!!!


    Rather than going for the pin, Crazy bounces straight back to his feet, as Tajiri begins crawling towards the ropes... SO CRAZY TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A BUZZSAW KICK!!!


    Gasps from the audience for the use of Tajiri’s move as Crazy really wants to finish this now. Instead of going for the cover, he drags Tajiri up by the hair... AND DROPS HIM ONE LAST TIME WITH A SWINGING DDT!!!


    Crazy scurries over and hooks the leg for the pin...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! THE CURRENT CHAMPION REFUSES TO STAY DOWN, JUST ROLLING A SHOULDER OFF OF THE MAT
    !!!!!


    The Mexican can’t believe it, and neither can the fans in the arena, as Tajiri really is showing the heart of a champion. Crazy looks towards the referee, who signals it was a two count, and this causes Super to get back up, before placing Tajiri between his legs. HE THEN RAISES TAJIRI IN THE AIR, SENDING HIM TO THE CANVAS WITH A LIGER BOMB!!!


    Crazy holds Tajiri’s shoulders down after the move...


    ...
    ...1...
    ............................
    .....2.....
    ...
    ........3.......
    NO! TAJIRI GETS A SHOULDER UP AGAIN
    !!!!!


    Again, the challenger can’t believe it but this time he wastes no time. Crazy drags the table a little further away from the corner, before placing Tajiri on the table. Instead of heading straight to the corner, Crazy lands eight brutal punches to the face of his nemesis. He then begins choking the life out of Tajiri, causing Tajiri’s tongue to come out of his mouth, gasping for air... WHEN TAJIRI SHOOTS RED MIST UP INTO THE EYES OF CRAZY OUT OF NOWHERE!!!


    The chokehold is broken as Crazy claws at his eyes, clearly blinded from the mist. Those “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out one more time as Crazy continues to stagger around. Tajiri uses this time to get to his feet on the table and cough a little, trying to get some air back into his lungs. Eventually, Crazy staggers back towards the table... BUT TAJIRI LANDS A BUZZSAW KICK FROM THE TOP OF THE TABLE!!!

    Crazy somehow bounces off the ropes and remains on his feet, heading back to Tajiri, ONLY FOR TAJIRI TO LAND A TORNADO DDT OFF OF THE TABLE!!!


    Even down on the canvas, Crazy is still more worried about his eyes, clearly unable to see. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ knows this is his chance and he drags Crazy up to his feet and tangles his arms in the ropes so he’s trapped on his feet. With Crazy defenceless, TAJIRI LANDS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE... FOLLOWED BY AH OOK KICK TO THE TEMPLE!!!


    The ropes are the only thing keeping Crazy up, so Tajiri untangles him from the ropes now, and he immediately crumbles to the mat. Tajiri mercilessly grabs Crazy and places him on the table. This time Crazy shows no signs of life, as the ECW Champion heads up to the top rope... BEFORE LEAPING OFF AND LANDING A FLYING DOUBLE STOMP... SENDING CRAZY CRASHING THROUGH THE TABLE!!!


    After the brutal spot, the fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, and Tajiri holds his knees, feeling the impact of the blow. Tajiri shakes off the pain and hooks the leg...

    WINNER – Yoshihiro Tajiri by pinfall @ 27:34



    As the referee’s hand slaps the mat the third time and the bell rings, Tajiri immediately rolls off of Super Crazy, but remains down on the mat.

    He’s holding at his legs after the finish, before using the ropes to get to his feet. Once Tajiri gets back to his feet, the referee hands him the ECW Championship, which he raises above his head.

    Tajiri holds his title and looks down at Super Crazy, whose eyes are filled with mist, and Tajiri gives his downed opponent a respectful nod.

    Crazy still isn’t moving though, as ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ begins climbing up the ropes, showing the ECW fans the title.

    The celebration of Tajiri continues, with the fans mixing in chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA” and “TAJIRI”, “TAJIRI”, “TAJIRI” as the show fades to black.

    END OF SHOW

    I hope you are really proud of what you've accomplished with this project. I know how bad you wanted a thread that you can stick with and you've done that with this one. Unfortunately I don't get to this stuff much (at all) any more but getting on here and reading your thread (and Wolfs & JBLs... or whatever he calls himself now!?) brings back some good memories. What you have created is fantastic and I hope it keeps going for many moons to come.

    Full points for thinking outside the box with your champion, too.

    Re: Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Glad to have one prediction right with guessing the opening match correctly. Eye Balls rightfully starting the match hot imo, being the powerhouses in the match. Typical sneaky heel shit from Team Me, to tag in after Matthews put in the hard work. Was really surprised that Team Me went first. Makes booking sense mind, as they were the reason for the match happening with both other teams wanting a piece of them, so, of course Eye Balls, York and Matthews would be focusing on beating them first. Big moment for the young team, and you put it over as a big deal too, which is great.



    Leaves the match with an interesting dynamic between two face teams, and I guess this could essentially be looked at now as an unofficial #1 Contenders match. Thought you balanced this match well, offsetting the size and power of Eye Balls with the speed of York & Matthews, and you littered this stretch with some great near falls for York & Matthews, especially the Superkick into the chair on Balls followed by the roll up. Enjoyed the finish too, with York having no shot against the odds after Matthews big bump into the crowd, and the right team went over, whilst also putting York and Matthews over as a team to be reckoned with.


    Didn’t expect the run in after the fact by Team Me, but it makes perfect sense, considering their recent actions on TV, to do just this. Really liked the touch of them sort of stealing Balls chair gimmick, nailing them with his ‘Team Me’ branded chair. Looks like that feud will continue for the time being with York & Matthews probably eliminated from the equation now.


    Rhino being Rhino. Best used wrestler of 2017, or I demand a recount


    Spikes own Rhino inspired promo was a great touch.


    Been really looking forward to this one, it’s been as real fun rivalry to follow. Spike being a fearless S.O.B is great, taking the fight to the much bigger man from the get go. Targeting the leg makes sense, given the injury Rhino caused Spike, plus, with Rhino being much bigger, it makes sense to take the big mans legs away as a weapon. Rhino responding to the leg lock with a rear naked choke was a great spot, though my only question would be, if Spike was choked unconscious, shouldn’t the referee have called the match at that point? I get why Rhino would want to continue to beat the shit out of him, but I would’ve assumed the referee would put a stop to the match once someone has been choked out?


    Anyways, envisaging Rhino just hurling a chair at Spike is awesome. I like adding that Styles on commentary being angry that Rhino wont just finish the match. Damn, the crowd are taking a beating tonight, lol. Enjoyed Spike borrowing chairs from audience members, with Rhino taking crazy punishment, and it was fun for the crowd sequence to be capped off with a balcony dive. Looked like a timely counter from Rhino, as the Acid Drop to the outside could’ve been a legit finish if Spike hit it. Liked not having the table break upon impact from Rhino too, as it did always feel like the ECW tables were much harder to break than the flimsy WWE tables that break when you blow on them. And, having the table NOT break - to me - makes the spot sound much more nasty - like hitting your face off a wall almost.


    The kick out to the Acid Drop was scary, showing again the beast he is, powering out after Spike’s own finish. Makes sense for Spike to get desperate and kick Rhino in the DICK after being told he was about to get killed. Holy Shit @ the Acid Drop counter. Spike definitely crashed and burned. That probably was enough for Rhino to get the win … but this is Rhino. It’s never enough. And neither was the Gore through the table. The added detail of splinters in the arms of Spike made me cringe, and I hadn’t realized that it was Rhinos FIRST pin attempt - glad you added that detail too. Just goes to show he really wanted to decimate Spike … and of course he succeeded in doing so. Great match.


    What a fucking STACKED card this is, TV Title match being second and now the tag title grudge match being third on the card.

    Typical chicken shit tactics from FBI at the start, but I’m glad you had Doring put a stop to that pretty quick. Numbers game was always going to be a factor, and it didn’t take too long for that to come into play to get FBI on top. Was surprised Doring got the hot tag as early as he did, as I expected a few teases before he got there, but it doesn’t take away from Roadkills impact on the match with you showcasing his unreal athleticism for such a big dude. Anton continues to be somewhat of a difference maker, with his earlier interference being a difference maker in turning the tide, and here as well, bringing an end to Roadkills hot streak.


    The Frog Splash followed by Sicilian Slice by FBI was a great false finish sequence, and Doring getting the hot tag brought kept the match running at a fast pace. I love symmetry in angles/matches like this, and the callback with the tag title absolutely fed to the kinds of things I appreciate greatly. Again, that spot with the suplex onto the tag title felt like a finish, so having fucking Anton drag the referee out felt like a kick to the gut - as the worry became that FBI would wind up winning the match. Thankfully though, the right team eventually went over, but I wasn’t into the comedy spot at the end with Mamaluke, given the seriousness of the angle up to this point. Would’ve preferred to see Roadkill and Doring just beat the shit out of Guido and Mamaluke to finish things off. Would’ve liked some more of FBI on top at some point, leading to the second hot tag, as I felt that could’ve been built up a little more with a few teases before making the hot tag. Still, a really good, fast paced match up, with the satisfactory finish we ALL wanted to see.


    Nice little promo from Corino ahead of the triple threat later in the show.


    Glad you included a pre-match package for the Anderson/Dreamer match, as it’s been building for such a long time - pretty much the beginning of the thread.


    Given the build, this one had to start with the fist fight, and rightfully, it’s the baby face winning that fight. Thought you put over Dreamers pent up aggression really well, shrugging off the bump over the top to just get right back on CW. Enjoyed CW turning the tables and telling Tommy to get up, and the reaction of the fans to the Camel Clutch spot was priceless. Was happy you had CW apply another boring hold to stick it to the fans. Made sense for Dreamer to consistently be the one to bring weapons into play, given his appetite for revenge here, and the spots with the ring bell were nicely done, with the bell being rung against the head of CW for something a little different.


    That reverse Superplex type spot off the top sounded nasty, along with CW then throwing the table at the incoming Tommy - much like Rhino not going through the table earlier, Anderson smashing his face off the table sounds much more horrific than going through it. Two nasty sounding spots right after the other. I was really surprised by the finish, as it seemed like the match was just kicking into another gear after a few near falls for both guys. Dreamers inability to hit the Dreamer Driver looks to be what ultimately cost him the match, with Anderson able to avoid it every time Tommy went for it. Glad that the table played a part in the finish after being teased and used as a weapon earlier in the match. Big BIG win for CW, and he’s probably not far off title contention after knocking off ECW’s Franchise Player.


    Still feels weird for a triple threat match in ECW, being so used to the 3-way dance matches in this environment. I’m always intrigued with how people start these types of matches, and I liked this one, with Corino willing to fight Kash, but not Sandman - pissing both men off to an extent, and getting him a two on one beating. I especially enjoyed seeing Kash and Sandman take turns beating up Corino after beating him in the corner, and Kash busting out an early pair of Hurricanranas. A little surprised you took Kash out early on two occasions to let Corino and Sandman go at it one on one for a bit, as I assumed this would follow the ECW formula of all three men being involved throughout, but also, taking out the best worker in the early going felt surprising more than anything.


    I liked the Abdominal Stretch spot, though it felt a little similar to Anderson in the previous match goading the fans with a wrestling hold (even if it’s a spot that suit’s the ‘King of Old School’ better). Was surprised - but not disappointed - that Kash recovered as quickly as he did from the Cane shot that knocked him off the apron and into the barrier. Getting Kash back involved really helped the match progress IMO, with his big top rope Hurricanrana - and it being followed by Sandmans Heinekenrana made me lol. Nice spot for the unathletic alco to try and top Kash.


    Not to say Sandman didn’t add anything to the match - he certainly did - but the best sequence of action absolutely came when it was just Corino and Kash for a short period, with the backslide counter out of the Expulsion, and the big DDT from Kash for the near fall. Victory saving Corino led into a great spot with Sandman taking out Kash whilst he was chasing Victory. I really liked how you got to that spot, something a little different, as that sort of spot would normally result in the managers own client being in Sandmans position to take advantage, but I liked the third man in this equation being the one to get the advantage of it.


    That Singapore Cane shot led to Sandmans best part of the match, and it was Singapore Cane City here for a bit, and I liked that it took a desperate low blow to slow Sandman down. From here, I felt the triple threat rules were used tremendously, having the three men pretty much involved consistently in breaking up pin attempts to save the match - which saves anyone from having to kick out of finishes. Dawn Marie costing Kash a sure win - following on from Victory earlier - makes it pretty acceptable for Kash to go nuts, and I’m glad that interference was enough to get her and Victory sent to the back. The finish makes it even more gutting for Kash, having had Corino beaten twice but suffering the loss to Corino after twice avoiding the Expulsion during the match. That surely has to be a feud coming out of this, as Kash will be still thinking he’s worthy of a title shot. Corino looks like such a smarmy heel coming out of this, stealing the win.


    My goodness, this feud has been going strong for so long, I honestly didn’t quite realise it had been ongoing since the thread began. It’s never felt flat or felt like it’s been dragging, you’ve built it brilliantly to keep it fresh all this time.

    Nice change of pace to start with some traditional wrestling, and rightfully, as the superior technician, it’s a battle Lynn wins. Cool to see you keep playing into Francines attitude to Credible, especially in his hour of need, giving him no help, but demanding he wins instead, keeping that scenario playing in our heads, and it makes sense then for Credible to play dirty and show his desperation to keep Francine by his side. Did not envisage seeing blood spilled in this one, and certainly not from Jerry Lynn either - but it fits for a blood feud. The focus from Credible on the gash was really unsettling, but excellent (and sensible) at the same time. The level of detail on the attack on the forehead was pretty damn gruesome.


    Really enjoyed the clear intensity of Jerry Lynn in his comeback after the high risk plancha to the floor. Hammering Credible and breaking a chair on Credible too - a little thing it may be, but breaking the chair just adds so much more to the overall intensity of the assault imo. That counter to the Tornado DDT sounded rough and nasty, another spot, which, with just a slight alteration by dropping Lynn on the chair rather than the ropes as you’d normally expect, adds to the match. I love those spots that are counter-counter-counter in quick succession, and I loved the Suplex-Reverse DDT-Northern Lights-DDT sequence here, and the sequences that followed were just as good, and tells the audience just how well matched the two men are, and just how well they both know each other with these constant counters. Tremendous writing.


    You had me rather annoyed with the Francine interference initially, as I honestly was thinking that her tossing the Cane into the ring was going to lead to the finish, but I’m glad it didn’t. Hell of a false finish though. And again, I thought her preventing the Cradle Piledriver was going to lead into the finish, so I was relieved - and a little surprised - that once Jerry demanded she stay out of the ring, she obeyed. That entire finishing stretch for that point on, just between Credible and Lynn with no shenanigans, was fantastic. Honestly, probably the best piece of match writing I’ve seen from you. You captured Jerry Lynns passion and rage tremendously with his use of the Singapore Cane. Such a brilliant back and forth battle, a damn near perfect finish to such a great rivalry, and kudos for putting Credible over BIG here with the clean finish, overpowering Lynn to nail the That’s Incredible in the end.


    The aftermath was great here too. From Joey Styles being speechless at Credible getting the job done, to Francine being won over seemingly by the victory for Credible, and Jerry Lynns reaction to defeat. I cant wait to see the directions taken coming out of this - especially for Lynn, who has undoubtedly fallen WAY down the pecking order after losing on TV and now tonight again. This one will be hard to follow.


    But then again… what a main event in store. The early lock ups made sense here again, and I liked that you emphasised that this was done at a much faster pace - something which is hard to distinguish through text as opposed to video. Some pretty neat counters in these opening exchanges, as you’d expect from two unique athletes in their prime. It also plays off the two knowing each other so well, just as you did beautifully in the Lynn/Credible match just before this. The tilt-a-whirl into the Monkey Flip and Back suplex counter for the Handspring stuck out the most for me in that early period. Took a surprisingly long time for a pin attempt, but it felt like things picked up from that point and things began to heat up more from there. Super Crazy eeking out the three from the surprise cradle certainly puts the champion up against it now, needing the next two falls to retain the title.


    Glad you had Styles mention the fact that under normal circumstances the match would be over, and I imagine that’ll be something that future challengers might use against Tajiri, considering him to be a potentially vulnerable champion. It may even be ammunition for Super Crazy to campaign for another shot down the road. Was very surprised that Tajiri levelled the scores almost instantly, as I had expected it to be drawn out before he got to 1-1. But, I like it. Everyone reading/watching would be almost certain Super Crazy wouldn’t be winning 2-0, so why not get the predictable second fall finished up to move on to the decisive fall. Also liked the clear intensity of Tajiri as soon as he lost the first fall, completely demolishing Crazy in rapid fire fashion to put him away.


    Nice change of pace for the opening part of the third fall, taking the action to the outside for an extended period, and good use of the table without just simply breaking it right away, and building to it instead. Must add at this point, just how impressed I’ve been with your creativity on the table spots on this show. No doubt you’ve been like that for a long time, but these spots are standing out a lot more on this show especially. The table breaking spot was well worth the wait too - Frankensteiner through the table sounds nasty. The sequence that followed with the half a dozen or so near falls was terrific. Super Crazy just threw pretty much everything at Tajiri throughout that period, and Tajiri comes out of it looking great to survive it all.


    Once again, have to commend you on the table spot teases in the finishing stretch of the match, using the table as a weapon/platform, rather than the usual ‘just put someone through it’ schtick. The Tree of Woe stuff appeared really great, and Crazy using the table to deliver a superplex was pretty unique (to me anyway) too. Crazy using the Buzzsaw kick was a shocker, and you had me thinking for a moment that would be the finish when he followed that with a DDT. As you put it yourself, Tajiri really did show the heart of a champion, and I feel that that was the goal throughout this match, having to come back from losing the first fall, to surviving just about every move in Super Crazys arsenal in the final fall. For Tajiri to then kick out of a Liger Bomb makes it understandable as to why Crazy would lose his cool and choke the life out of Tajiri. The mist spot was pretty ingenious, and it leading to the finish made perfect sense. Pretty glad that you had Tajiri - rather than just nail a hopeful kick - truly make sure of victory with the pair of kicks, DDT and finally putting Crazy through the table with the foot stomp to see him off.


    Hellacious main event, and a fantastic title defence to set the tone for Tajiris title reign as a fighting, underdog champion, who’ll also have the best match of the night. This is your best show yet, stojy. And they keep getting better, which is great news for everyone that gets to read this stuff.

    Massacre On 34th Street Review
    Always a good idea to start with a tag match and the three way was very good. I thought for certain that Team Me would sneak the win against the odds but going first really surprised me, and like Wolfy said it gave York and Matthews a huge rub to get rid of them. With Eye Balls just getting established themselves it was the right idea to give them the victory.

    The aftermath with Team Me assaulting Eye Balls gives them back some momentum and all three teams walk away with something to hold. Great booking all round really.

    Rhino's promo was stereotypical Rhino but I really loved Spike's rebuttal. He put over how he's always beaten the odds and it set up tonight's match very well. The match itself was as expected a crazy one and even when you thought Spike might steal the win you always expected Rhino to come through and take the victory. Would have been nice to get a RVD return but I guess that will have to wait. With 2001 closing in I'm hopeful that ECW continues past it's death in reality... otherwise we might not get to see RVD/Rhino at all.

    Doring and Roadkill put over perfectly how much tonight means to them and I am happy that they got their revenge by winning the tag team titles!!! Popped for The Hart Attack too!!! Nice touch.

    Dreamer/Anderson was as hate-filled as you would expect but I was pleasantly surprised to see Anderson win it cleanly. Anderson gets a massive rub and Dreamer doesn't need the win as he will always be over in ECW because of who he is. Only problem with this is does CW Anderson move on from Dreamer because he got a clean win, because there really is no reason why Anderson would want to fight Dreamer again... he's proven he's better than him.

    I always expected Corino to win because he has more upside to him than Sandman or Kash plus his promo from earlier tonight felt like it was leading to a title challenge. The way he won was typical Corino though as he stole the opportunistic victory away from Sandman. Now usually I'd expect this to lead to Corino/Tajiri(who I expect to win later tonight) but the next match might put a spanner in that.

    Credible gets the win over Lynn which furthers the story of both men. Firstly Lynn's road to aligning with Cyrus gets closer and closer with another defeat but as for Credible I can see him trying to angle his way into the title picture. He never got his one on one rematch with Tajiri and he didn't lose the number one contendership match. A three way would be a much better idea, and leave us open to the singles matches down the line.

    Finally the main event was excellent. Super Crazy getting the first fall was cool and he would be the champ if it was a singles match. That is surely something that we will come back to. Like Wolf said Tajiri getting the second fall quickly and ferociously was great as it set the final fall up quickly and refused to let the second fall drag on. The final fall saw both men absolutely beat the shit out of each other... pardon my language!!! Crazy with a Buzzsaw Kick and Tajiri with the mist were great and Tajiri taking advantage of a blinded Crazy to get the win with the Double Foot Stomp through a table proves that he will go to deep lengths to hold onto the title. Tajiri looks like a strong champion but the fact Crazy beat him first will definitely be a stick for the rest of the ECW roster to beat him with verbally.

    Overall an awesome show again and ECW are heading into 2001 greatly and I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with the new tag champs, the reigning ECW World Champion and whether the irrepressible Rhino can be dethroned. Good work all around my friend. Keep it up!!!

    Re: Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Tajiri is a cool, different world champion for ECW. As opposed to some of the later champs like Justin Credible or Lynn (like Lynn but not as the man), like Credible just kind of stunk as a guy who got the belt because he would never get picked up elsewhere. I love your writing style, it really emulates ECW television. I wouldn't have the energy for it. I have some more free time now to catch up on shows so hopefully I can keep track of yours.

    ECW News and Notes


    ECW Massacre On 34th Street seemed to have been an enjoyable show for the live audience, who quite vocally showed their support throughout. However it is becoming painstakingly obvious that not having a television network to air weekly programming on is affecting Extreme Championship Wrestling. The PPV buy rate of Massacre on 34th Street was the lowest since ECW Heatwave, which makes one have to wonder where the fledgling company goes from here.


    Paul Heyman is reportedly pulling out all of the stops to try and find ECW a new home on television. Without a network deal, simply put, this company will not succeed. Merchandise and ticket sales are up as high as they have ever been, yet without the television deal, and pay per view buy rates, the company is not making enough money to be sustainable. Heyman is apparently in talks with multiple television networks; however talks haven’t really progressed past preliminary stages. There are even rumours going around that Heyman would be open to trying to renegotiate with The Nashville Network, but from a network perspective, that bridge seems well and truly burnt. Adding the likelihood of renewing a TV deal even lower is the fact that TNN will be airing the World Wrestling Federation’s Raw is War in the future.


    There is five weeks of live show content to fill until ECW’s next pay per view on January 7th, ECW Guilty As Charged. At this point in time, there has been no indication that ECW will be granted access to hosting anymore PPV’s without a television deal. The fledgling numbers are just too much of a risk to continue to host PPV’s. With that being said, wrestlers are continuing to grow uneasy at their agreed upon wages not being met, and ECW may not even have enough money to air five live shows before the PPV. An official announcement has yet to be communicated however there is every chance ECW will have a New Years gap the week before Guilty As Charged. Based on the knowledge we currently have, it’s safe to say that ECW Guilty As Charged may just be the last show in the company’s history.


    It looks as if the experiment of having Yoshihiro Tajiri as the ECW Champion, and the other main eventers all feuding around the next title shot is set to continue. The company have been quite high on Tajiri for a long time now, and they believe his title reign is adding an incredible amount of freshness to the main event scene, which was previously dominated by the likes of Justin Credible and Jerry Lynn.


    A few months ago ECW head referee HC Loc and The Network’s hand picked referee Danny Daniels were involved in tag team matches against each other. It is being reported that in the build up to Guilty As Charged both referees may be competing inside the ring yet again. Nobody is sure in what capacity, but it is said that their roles will be quite minimal.


    Fresh off of ECW Massacre On 34th Street, it has been reported that Tommy Dreamer has recovered well from his first week back in active competition. He may be given a bit of time before stepping into the ring again, but he will definitely be part of the ECW Guilty As Charged card.


    There have also been talks of some wrestler movement news in the near future. It is believed that one of the current champions in ECW is being courted for a run in the World Wrestling Federation. Paul Heyman is doing all he can to convince his soldier to stay with ECW, however a commitment from the wrestler has yet to be made to either side. In other news, two of ECW’s biggest ever stars are set to return in late December and early January respectively. The names of these wrestlers are being kept under wraps, however information has leaked confirming that one return may only be a one off appearance, whilst the other could be a more permanent return.


    As events continue to develop, we will, as ever, keep you all updated.

    Re: Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Good set of news and notes, but the negative talk around a TV deal isnt good. Dont tease us - ECW needs to find TV!! Makes sense that PPV numbers would be dwindling if there's no TV to promote it, but given the quality of Hardcore TV, there should be Networks lining up to air ECW - fingers crossed. Guilty as Charged cant be the end.

    That champion better not be Rhino or Tajiri. Just saying. You hit the nail on the head about Tajiri offering something fresh to the main event scene too.

    Get a new show up.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Sorry for the OVERLY long delay here, been incredibly busy. Firstly, thanks Wolfy for the comments as always.

    Remember back in July when I had a flood which resulted in no laptop or internet connectivity for two months? This show was initially completed in full but I lost it with the old laptop, and couldn’t bring myself to write it in full again… So recap it is. Next show after this will be back in full.

    Also, this show follows the standard ECW procedure of no new in ring content the episode after a PPV.

    Anyway, enjoy.

    ***

    ECW Hardcore TV
    December 9th, 2000
    The Hammerstein Ballroom
    New York, New York City

    Being that we are only just removed from a pay per view extravaganza, the show opens with a recap of the undercard of the event. The highlights of the video package include: the still relatively new tag team of Balls Maloney and Pierre Carl Oulette, aptly titled Eye Balls, outlasting Team Me and Christian York and Joey Matthews in a Three Way Dance Match; This quickly cuts to a video of after the match where Eye Balls are celebrating until Team Me attack them, and steal their custom made steel chairs; The ECW Television Champion Rhino retained his title when he took the best that Spike Dudley could offer, before finishing him off with a brutal Piledriver; CW Anderson triumphed against the returning Tommy Dreamer in a match fuelled by hatred; Finally, ‘The King Of Old School’ Steve Corino outlasted Kid Kash and The Sandman in a Triple Threat match to become the undisputed number one contender to the ECW Championship…



    With the video package being completed, we head to the backstage area where the angry/sulky looking Team Me, consisting of Johnny Swinger and Simon Diamond are standing by. As what tends to be the usual these days, they are flanked by CW Anderson, who is standing with his arms crossed, looking pretty content, almost an opposite to his friends. Immediately, a frustrated Diamond goes on a bit of a rant… “Let’s make one thing perfectly clear, we got beaten on a FLUKE last night. Even though we didn’t get the win last night, we still made sure everybody is talking about us. We took out Joey Matthews, who knows when he will be back, and with what took place after the match, all of the dirty ECW fans out there are talking about us!” The leader of Team Me actually takes a step back now, a devilish smirk on his face and Swinger steps up to the plate… “Winning doesn’t matter when you make an impact like we did last week, we are next in line for a title shot… And sorry Eye Balls, because when we win the ECW Tag Team Championships, we’re going to take the titles back to ATLANTA!” Even though they seem to be in a positive mind set, CW Anderson has looked very unimpressed with their words the whole time. He shakes his head and visibly looks annoyed, which causes both members of Team Me to stop, and allows Anderson to speak… “I tried to keep my mouth shut but I can’t do it anymore, I like you guys but you need to SHUT UP and listen to what I say right now! The first thing you both need to do is stop complaining, there is no crying in ECW, unless your name is Tommy Dreamer and you just got pinned last week.” It’s obvious that Team Me don’t know how to respond to this lecture from their buddy, as Anderson sneaks out a smirk at the Dreamer dig before continuing… “By the way Tommy, you should consider yourself lucky with what went down at Massacre. Pinning you is not what an Anderson would normally do, I should have made you tap, but I want to make it very clear, that I WON’T make that same mistake again. Because next time we meet, I won’t just pin you, I’ll make you tap… Worse than that, I’ll make you quit, because a dreamer and all of his dreams doesn’t compare to an Anderson!” With Team Me lurking in the background, not sure what to do with themselves, CW Anderson gives the camera one lasting stare before storming out of screenshot…



    Next up, we get another video package hyping Extreme Championship Wrestling’s next pay per view event. After numerous highlights of some of the most extreme moments in the company’s history, we are left with… “ECW GUILTY AS CHARGED – JANUARY 7TH, 2001... LIVE FROM THE HAMMERSTEIN BALLROOM.”

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    Upon returning from the commercial break, we see highlights of the final few moments of the ECW Tag Team Championship Match from ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street. Despite all the interference, against all the odds, Danny Doring and Roadkill were able to perform the Buggy Bang on Tony Mamaluke before holding him down for the three count. After the match, we see an emotional celebration as Danny Doring and Roadkill have finally achieved their dream of becoming the ECW Tag Team Champions…



    Once this video package is completed, we follow the trend of seeing another sombre looking team standing backstage. This time it’s Little Guido, Sal E. Graziano, Scotty Anton and Tony Mamaluke, collectively known as The Full Blooded Italians. The former tag team champions look depressed, with Mamaluke looking the most down out of all the members. After what seems to be an eternity, their leader, Little Guido speaks… “I’ve got to go right ahead and call a spade a spade, I admit it, we lost. We had their number all along, I mean it took those MISFITS THREE times to beat us, but they finally got LUCKY and everything worked out in their favour. Guido takes a moment to pause, noticing that Mamaluke looks on the verge of tears, so he slaps him on his chest, and motions for him to keep his chin up. When he speaks again, Guido uses a more sympathetic tone… “Tony, you can’t blame yourself for what happened out there, we ALL messed up, but the one thing about The FBI is, we are a well-oiled machine and we DON’T mess up often. Congratulation to the ‘champs’, Danny Doring and Roadkill, they got LUCKY and had ONE great night…Enjoy it well it lasts boys, because you WILL fall back down to earth, and when you do, we will watch you guys fall and then we’ll catch the ECW Tag Team Championships.” Despite being beltless, Guido seemed to be in good spirits, and his pep talk seemed to inspire the rest of the crew as well, as the quartet of Italians leave the screenshot looking more determined than ever…



    From here, we cut to another area backstage, where despite seeing off his rival and retaining his title at the PPV, the ECW Television Champion Rhino seems to be in the same foul, intense mood that he always is. The champion paces back and forth, hitting a few walls as he does so, and then he begins to speak… “Last week at the pay per view, I took the best that Spike Dudley could dish out and then I treated him like my little BITCH! I toyed with him before I choked him out and I gored him, and now I ask, what’s next? I dare you to bring back RVD, I dare you to bring back New Jack, and I dare you to bring back Kid Kash. No matter who gets put in front of me, they get destroyed, I beat Rob Van Dam OUT of ECW! Despite one million people trying to ruin it for me, I DESTROYED Kid Kash! I don’t even know what’s left for Spike to do, but if he wants to bring his brothers, I’ll go murder everyone in fucking Dudleyville. Rhino laughs at his own words, before throwing his title to the floor, trembling, and going red with rage… “DUDLEYVILLE ISN’T SHIT… I’LL GORE EVERY FUCKING CITIZEN AND BURN IT TO THE GROUND!” He pauses, letting his breathing calm down before continuing… “I need you to understand one thing, I’m just playing with you, Spike, and when I want you to be dead, you’ll be DEAD dead. Let me repeat, you’ll be fucking dead. And no matter how bad I beat you, you WILL say my name.” ‘The Big F’n Deal’ now stops pacing and dead pans the camera, yelling once again… “IT’S RHINO… IT’S RHINO… BIG FUCKING DEAL… IT’S RHINO”! Rhino continues screaming his lungs out, one scary individual as we fade away…



    To kind of take things down a notch, we head to another area backstage where the best play by play announcer in the business, bar none, is standing by. Joey Styles is wearing a standard black suit with a black tie, looking the picture of professionalism, with a microphone in hand and an excited glint in his eye… “As most of you will know by now, last Sunday at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, Steve Corino won the Triple Threat match to become the number one contender for the ECW Championship, but A LOT OF people believe that The Sandman was robbed by Steve Corino. That’s because The Sandman was about to defeat Kid Kash, only for Corino to capitalise on The Sandman’s hard work. Either way, Steve Corino is once again the number one contender for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship and next week on ECW Hardcore TV, we will see the reincarnation of an old rivalry when Yoshihiro Tajiri versus Steve Corino for the title”! Having delivered his HUGE announcement, Joey Styles signs off and sends us to our second commercial break of the evening…

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    Surprise, surprise. We return from the break with another video package, recapping events that took place last Sunday at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street. This time we see highlights of the epic battle between Jerry Lynn and Justin Credible, which ended with Credible reversing a Flying Headscissors into a That’s Incredible on a steel chair to pick up the victory…



    A taping then comes to life for the viewers watching at home, and it reads “AFTER ECW MASSACRE ON THIRTY FOURTH STREET WENT OFF THE AIR”. The video package shows the tiny ECW wrestler’s locker room clearing out, as Jerry Lynn storms in, cursing and throwing things around, clearly frustrated with being on the end of yet another loss. With everybody clearing out, there is one man walking against the flow, walking towards Lynn to comfort him, and it’s Cyrus. The former head of The Network walks up to Lynn and places a hand on his shoulder, but Lynn shoots him a deadly glance, and Cyrus immediately removes his hand. The crafty Cyrus instead tries another route… “Jerry, I don’t know what to say, I don’t really want to be THAT guy, but I told you this would happen. There is absolutely no doubt about it, you were robbed out there. It’s quite clear to anybody who knows ANYTHING about the wrestling business that you had that match won before that harlot got involved. And it’s a damn tragedy because as I’ve been saying for a while now, the world SHOULD know how great Jerry Lynn is… Just like I do… I need you to understand that all I’ve been doing lately is trying to look out for you, because as I’ve always said, we could do GREAT things together.” As Cyrus has continued speaking, Lynn’s expression has softened somewhat, and he looks legitimately curious. After his impassioned speech, Cyrus offers his hand, and Lynn ponders for a moment…BEFORE SHAKING CYRUS’ HAND! Whilst they continue to shake, Lynn says… “At this stage, I’ve got nothing else to lose, so I’ll give it a shot. At least somebody respects me because it’s clear that this company doesn’t respect their BEST wrestler.” With the verbal affirmation and Lynn continuing to vent, Cyrus tries to pat him on the back again, but this time Jerry almost gives him a thankful look. Jerry then begins to walk away, and with Lynn not looking, Cyrus pumps his fist and lets out a shit eating grin, clearly celebrating his triumph. Eventually, Lynn halts and turns back towards Cyrus who yells… “I’ll meet you in the car, Jerry, I’ll just be a moment, I’ve got a quick, important phone call to deal with.” Lynn doesn’t think anything off it and continues to walk away, whilst Cyrus slyly pulls out his phone, and slams the locker room door shut to ensure nobody can hear what he is saying and who he is speaking to…



    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    Returning from the final commercial break of the evening leads us into one, final video package. This video package highlights ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street’s main event, which was a Two out of Three Falls match between Yoshihiro Tajiri and Super Crazy for the ECW Championship. Despite the Mexican challenger picking up the first fall, Tajiri quickly retaliated gaining the second fall and then the third to retain his ECW Championship…



    And to end tonight’s show, it’s time for some PULP FICTION~! Firstly, we see the former ECW Champion Justin Credible sitting on a chair in a locker room, looking pretty content, whilst his girlfriend Francine has a smirk on her face, seductively stroking his Singapore Cane in the background. At this very moment though, Credible pays no attention to Francine, instead mulling over his words, before beginning… “I told everybody what I was going to do and I did it. I beat Jerry Lynn once and for all, and now that all the distractions are out of the way, that ECW Title WILL be mine again. Think about all the distractions, I made Kid Kash pay. At ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, I made Jerry Lynn pay… And now that they are both out of the way, after next week, Yoshihiro Tajiri or Steve Corino is going to have to come face to face with the GREATEST ECW Champion of all fucking time! After everything I’ve been through, I’m not a patient man and I’m NOT going to wait too long. I’ll watch next week’s title match closely and then I want the winner of that match before the end of the year. I need to right the wrongs that have occurred and the year two thousand and one will begin the way most of this year has been spent… With the ECW Championship wrapped around the waist of the man who is just incredible”! He’s clearly in a jovial mood after his big victory at the pay per view and Credible continues to smile, whilst Francine licks her luscious lips and continues to stroke the Singapore Cane…



    Pulp Fiction sends us to apre-recorded promo from last Sunday, just after ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street went off the air. The video shows a makeshift medical area set up, with a doctor trying to look at a patient who is sitting on a wooden crate, but the patient shoves the doctor away. Once the doctor scurries out of the screenshot, we see that the patient is none other than Spike Dudley. The runt of the Dudley litter has a menacing look on his face, as he struggles to get off the crate, clutching at his neck and ribs. Eventually he does get up, and he lets out a sadistic smirk before mean mugging the camera… “Rhino, congratulations. You did exactly what you said you were going to do, you beat me up and you hurt me real bad”. Spike takes a moment before shaking his head, as a look of fury crosses his face… “BUT YOU DIDN’T PUT ME OUT… NO DISRESPECT TO RVD OR NEW JACK OR RAVEN… BUT RHINO COULDN’T PUT ME OUT…I’M STILL STANDING… YOU MOTHERFUCKER… AND THAT MEANS THIS ISN’T FUCKING OVER”! Having said his bit, Spike picks up the crate he was sitting on earlier and throws it across the room, clearly in a rage, before he storms out of screenshot…



    Let’s now cut to a feel-good story, as celebrating and hugging with the ECW Tag Team Championships in their possession are Danny Doring and Roadkill. Both men have the biggest grins on their faces, and they share one more hug before paying attention to the camera. Instead of speaking straight away though, they both take the titles from around their waist and raise them in the air, really enjoying their moment. As they bring the titles back down, Doring begins to speak… “All we can really say at this point, is finally. After all the setbacks and hurdles we’ve had to overcome throughout our careers, the Danaconda and the Angry Amish Chicken Plücker are the new ECW World Tag Team…” Doring gets interrupted by his overly excited tag team partner… “CHICKENS”~! Rather than get annoyed like he normally would, Doring smiles at the interruption from his partner and shakes his head bemusedly… “Normally I’d argue with but not tonight, tonight’s a good night so fine. Whatever… But don’t forget buddy, we are also the new ECW World Tag Team CHAMPIONS”! Funnily enough, this time Doring is pumped as he raises the title in the air one last time, whilst Roadkill nonchalantly watches on…



    For the second time tonight, Pulp Fiction takes us back to the night of ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, and this time it’s with Christian York andJoey Matthews sitting in the back. York and Matthews both seem to be a little down after their defeat, whilst a battered Tommy Dreamer appears, clearly favouring his back after the Anderson Spinebuster through the table he received. York immediately shakes Tommy’s hand, whilst Matthews embarrassingly nods, nursing his arm which is taped up with ice covering it. Tommy automatically gets a look of concern when he sees Matthews, and not wanting to be scalded, York quickly chimes in… “Yeah, it’s a little bit disappointing that we lost the match, but we showed what happens when it’s just the two of us and Team Me… Because we beat them up and we WON!” Both young kids have a look of determination in their eyes, but Dreamer nods, not really paying it any attention, his eyes still fixed on the injured arm of Matthews. He steps forward to take a closer look whilst saying… “That arm doesn’t look to good, Joey, you guys need to get to a hospital right now. I appreciate the respect and I know you guys know the way ECW works, but you need to STOP following my example”. Once he has finished giving his fatherly lecture, Tommy turns and leaves, whilst a dejected York and Matthews continue to head in the opposite direction…



    Next up we cut to a parking lot, and we see an ecstatic Steve Corino, leading the way with a big smile on his face, closely followed by the just as happy Dawn Marie and Jack Victory. They continue to walk until ‘The King of Old School’ notices the camera and stops, pointing at it so Dawn and Jack can see it as well. Once they realise what’s happening, they stop and Corino begins… “I don’t hate to say I told you so, I told all of you and then I did it. I told EVERYONE that I would do it, and that’s what I did.” Dawn and Jack clap but Corino shakes his head, clearly getting annoyed at constantly being doubted, and finally, he explodes… “I PROVED ALL OF THE DOUBTERS WRONG BECAUSE I AM A WINNER… AND YOSHIHIRO TAJIRI… YOU SLANT EYED LITTLE JAP BASTARD… I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN… NOBODY’S SPILLED MY BLOOD MORE THAN YOU, YA’ SNEAKY LITTLE CHINK… AND NEXT WEEK… I’M NOT JUST GOING TO RETURN THE FAVOUR… I AM GOING TO TAKE AWAY FROM YOU WHAT YOU NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAD IN THE FIRST PLACE… I AM NOT LOSING… BECAUSE ECW BELONGS TO ME!” The Rhino-esque rant leaves even Dawn and Jack shocked, as they stand there silently. Meanwhile, Corino begins to calm down his breathing, turns and continues walking through the parking lot as if nothing happened…



    Pulp Fiction now leads us to another hated faction amongst the rabid ECW fans, Hot Commodity. All four members, Chris Hamrick, Elektra, EZ Money and Julio Dinero are standing around backstage, wearing casual clothing. All four of them look rather unimpressed, probably due to their lack of exposure as of late, but this doesn’t stop Elektra from speaking her mind… “Despite not getting the respect that we deserve as of late, we are here to issue a challenge to the new ECW Tag Team Champions to face not only the hottest tag team in wrestling. We transcend this industry, we are more than this industry, we challenge you to face the hottest commodity in the world”. Short, sharp, and to the point, with their challenge issued, the quartet walk out of view…



    For an unheard of second time in the one segment of Pulp Fiction, we see Tommy Dreamer. This time Tommy looks to be sitting in the comfort of his own home, a few days after ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, but he still looks to be in a foul mood. The look on his face quickly turns to one of confusion as he asks a question… “I’m honestly a little bit confused so I was hoping somebody would be able to help me out. Why does CW think he’s going to make me tap out when I’ve NEVER given up in seven and a half years in ECW or ten years in wrestling”? The veteran of ECW asks the question, pauses, chuckles for a moment, before becoming deadly serious… “I’M NOT AN ANDERSON… I’M A DREAMER… AND I DREAM OF MAKING YOU TAP”! The camera remains on the intense Dreamer, who is breathing heavily, until we fade away…



    It’s now time for the final clip of Pulp Fiction and it’s back to the night of ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street. We see Yoshihiro Tajiri jumping up and down, ECW Championship in his hand and eyes closed, celebrating next to an equally as excited Mikey Whipwreck. Mikey’s smile is just as big as Tajiri’s as ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ begins yelling in Japanese. Suddenly, the two-stop jumping around like lunatics as The Sinister Minister comes into screenshot and the three share a hug. Once the trio separates, TSM speaks… “As the old saying goes, boys, speak of the devil, and the devil he doth appear. I’m so happy for the first time in a long time because my boys have the world in their hands now. From my own selfish point of view, I am now the manager of the ECW Champion, so with the facts as they are, it’s time people gave the devil his due”. Having completed his usual cryptic spiel, The Sinister Minister begins laughing hysterically, and Mikey and Tajiri do the same, leading to the celebration continuing as the show fades to black…

    -END OF SHOW-

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Loved the intensity out of CW Anderson here, offsetting against the more arrogant personalities of Team Me. Found the line about taking the tag belts to Atlanta pretty funny, before Anderson took over and stole the promo. Obviously his feud with Dreamer isn’t done yet, and he had some great lines here toward Dreamer, who, no doubt, will have something to say about all of that.

    Was a little surprised by Guidos attitude after losing the belts, but the reasoning for him not being overly angry or disappointed was solid and made sense. FBI are obviously confident about winning the belts back, and I wonder if that rematch will happen on ECW TV or if you hold off for Guilty As Charged for the return match.

    How much would I love to see Rhino vs. Bubba Dudley. That was the first thought that ran through my head when Rhino had a pop at Dudleyville. I obviously don’t expect that to happen given the standing the Dudleys were in with the WWE in 2001, but it would still be cool to see. Rhino threatening to gore everyone and burn Dudleyville down to the ground sounds like typical Rhino in this thread. I suspect he’s done with Spike after their match at the PPV, so I’m intrigued to see who steps up next to challenge for the TV title.

    Glad you put some spotlight on Corino stealing the win at the PPV. Am a little surprised he’s getting his title shot next week, but I’m fully expecting run ins from at least Sandman after he was screwed and possibly Credible too now that he has himself back in the title picture.

    I love this Lynn/Cyrus dynamic, but cant help but feel that Cyrus will string Lynn along for his own gain and eventually toss Lynn aside. That said, it shows just how desperate Lynn is now after another loss, and it was the clear, next logical step for him. No idea what he could be up to right now, but I just cant get behind a slime ball snake like Cyrus ever doing something for Jerry Lynns best interests. Intriguing situation developing.

    Curious that Credible wants his shot before the year is out. Looks like Tajiri could be in for a busy festive period! Surprised that Spike and Rhino still aren’t done then, but that goes to show how brave/stupid Spike is, with no hesitation about getting in the ring with a monster like Rhino again. I like how you’re trying to build York & Matthews, as two bright eyed kids, trying to follow in Dreamers footsteps, whilst Tommy is trying to steer them away from idolizing him.

    Wow. Corino came in hot. The blatant racism caught me off guard, but I guess it was seventeen years ago and he could get away with it as a heel. I have to admit, I did laugh at the fact he called Tajiri a ‘chink’. Given the reactions at the end of his rant, I guess that was the desired effect.

    I don’t see Hot Commodity as anything more than a team for the champs to beat, but I liked Dreamers rebuttal for Andersons promo earlier. Given the talk of ‘quitting’ from both men … I think we can see where this is heading. Nice to finish the show with the champion, and I could listen to Sinister Minister read the phone book. Hopefully we get more out of the Minister in the coming weeks as Tajiri’s mouthpiece.

    Despite it being your typical post-PPV show, there’s a few notable developments. Dreamer/Anderson continuing was expected, and the next stage of their rivalry looks pretty clear. We’ve got a big title match next week (with another in the following weeks if Credible has anything to do with it) and a surprising (to me anyway) continuation of Rhino/Spike seemingly.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    First things first - apologies for never getting a real review up to the ECW PPV. It was some great work, worthy of that BTBOM, and I cannot wait to get back to some action on ECW. Just some quick thoughts regarding the post PPV show you just posted.

    Oh man I loved that ending to the Anderson promo. Really hit home about how series CW is about ending Dreamer once and for all. Really feeling his rage tonight, and I think he's a series contender for the championship if he keeps up with this momentum. Especially with Team Me flanked on either side.

    I dig that we aren't getting an angry FBI. Once someone loses their championship, especially a heel, they just go on some type of tirade and promise to take back their championship. FBI feels a little more real and potentially dangerous that they are accepting of their defeat. Becoming cold and calculated could be really beneficial to both the characters and story. Just hope we don't see Roadkill and Doring lose the championships right away.

    God. Rhino continues to be an absolute STAR in this BTB. Excellent promo from him.

    Like Wolf Beast said, I am getting some definite vibes that Cyrus is going to use Jerry Lynn. Feels like he is just going to push a lot of doubts towards Jerry to get himself towards his own ultimate goal. Whatever they might be.

    I like that Credible wants a championship shot before 2000 is over and done with. Wanting to fix his year by regaining the gold makes perfect sense and makes for a compelling storyline. Don't know if he can do it but we still have a bit to go to see if I'm wrong.

    Damn, Corino went off on Tajiri. I feel like that's going to come back and bite him in the ass. The Sinister Minister already looks like he's going to be real nice mouthpiece for the champ as well.

    For no action tonight - I considered all the promos to be well done and thought out. Some continuation to big feuds and there should be some start ups in your next episode of ECW. Cannot wait to see what you do.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Promo heavy post-PPV show. You know I'm not a big fan of this tradition but it is what it is. Looking forward to seeing what the stars have to say after MO34S.

    CW Anderson's promo was intense. His feud with Dreamer isn't over then as it looks like he's willing to push until Dreamer is gone forever. Also not sure what to make of his dig at Team Me, maybe there's a split in the offing. The final line from Anderson was brilliant.

    Rhino intense as always. I hope that his feud and dealings with Spike is over because I really think he needs to start being the big main event deal rather than the big midcard deal. Rhino's next steps are very interesting to me and I'll be happy to see him in the mix for the ECW title sooner rather than later.

    Corino/Tajiri seems too soon. I really thought Corino would be the one to dethrone but next week is too soon. Sure to be one hell of a match though.

    So finally Lynn and Cyrus are entwined. It was always going to happen with the way that Lynn was losing week in and week out. More to the point I'm intrigued to know what Cyrus was up to or who he was talking to before the cameras were kicked out of the locker room. The sneaky s**t is always up to something!!!

    Tajiri is a man with a long line looking to cash in on him. Credible looking for his rematch will be interesting and this could definitely be a defining month for The Japanese Buzzsaw.

    Ugghhhhh!!! Spike isn't dead!!! I guess we won't end this feud until Rhino buries Spike. Here's to that happening haha

    Ahhh Corino'!!!! What a xenophobic promo!!! Despite the fire in Old School I don't see him toppling Tajiri... that little bastard just will not lay down easily. Considering my lack of early ECW I'm going to look up Corino/Tajiri so congrats on getting me reading history.

    Well it looks like we are heading for some kind of submission/quit match between Dreamer and Anderson. I'm not happy too much that Anderson beat Dreamer clean and they are still going at it, but I guess that this will definitely be the end of the feud, one way or another. there's no coming back from quitting to your rival.

    Nice little end to the night with The Sinister Minister and The Unholy Alliance. Next week should be a fun main event and I hope Tajiri gives Dawn Marie the mist to the face. That's just my personal preference haha.

    Overall despite the lack of ring action a lot of promo work building towards the next few storylines. I'm hoping Rhino/Spike comes to an end soon and I'm interested to see where Tajiri and/or the World Championship end up doing at Guilty As Charged!!!

    Keep up the good work Stojy, always a pleasure.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy



    As I am strongly contemplating a comeback to the section, I thought it would be a good idea to probably check out the competition and as the winner of the December BTB, I guess that makes you and this thread the main competition :p With that being said, thought I’d take a look at a few of your shows.

    Things I really liked:

    • Character development. Despite only skimming a few shows and then reading the whole of your Post-PPV show; I feel like I’m already connecting with the characters of Rhyno and Tommy Dreamer.
    • Enjoyed the format of your ECW Pay Per View show. You’re incredibly good at the actual match writing too, that’s one of the areas I’ve found myself struggling with in the past.
    • That Two out of Falls match on your PPV show. I usually skim read matches but this match was an exceptional read; really enjoyed it.


    Things that I have criticism with:

    • Lack of actual matches on your Post-PPV show felt weird to me. That’s not suggesting it was a bad thing necessarily; just not really my thing. It just seems weird for a wrestling show, but I get that is your format.
    • Admittedly wasn’t feeling the format for the Post-PPV show; it felt and looked very recappy, but it didn’t make it unreadable or anything. The content of your show was strong enough that this wasn’t a huge issue - just didn’t work for me is all.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Thanks for all the feedback again guys, much appreciated. Enigma, since you're new to the thread I'll touch on two things for you. No matches after a PPV was something ECW did because of when they held their TV tapings, I'm just sticking to tradition to keep some realism in the thread.

    Crappy recappy format was because I lost the show I had initially written in full. Shows return to full... Now.

    ECW Hardcore TV
    December 16th, 2000
    Queens, New York

    Rather than opening with the Queens, New York extremist fans going ape shit, we instead cut to a video which shows the vibrant life of New York City during the day. Suddenly, Cyrus and Jerry Lynn both come into screenshot, Lynn in a pair of jeans and a jumper, and Cyrus is wearing a suit. Both men look as if they are really concentrating as they stroll down the footpath, Jerry not really saying much whilst Cyrus talks to him.

    Cyrus: Listen, Jerry, I know things have been tough for you to say the least over the past couple of months in ECW, but I’m here to show you that outside of ECW, you have a lot of fans… Take this guy for example…

    Both men stop in their tracks, now inside Central Park where a homeless man is laying down on the freshly manicured grass. In front of him is a sign that reads “SPARE A DOLLAR PLEASE”, and a hat that is currently filled with a few silver coins. Cyrus takes a few steps towards the homeless person, a disgusted look on his face as he drops a one-dollar bill into the hat. This immediately sparks the homeless guys attention, as he smiles whilst wiping a smudge of dirt from his face.

    Homeless Guy: Thank you, kind sir.

    Cyrus: Sure, whatever. Look, I was just hoping you could help me and my friend here, I was hoping you could tell me who your favourite professional wrestler is…

    Cyrus looks behind to see Lynn, who doesn’t really know how to react. Cyrus reassures him with a wink and points at his ear, telling Lynn to listen carefully, meanwhile the homeless guy looks perplexed.

    Homeless Guy: The fake crap?

    Cyrus: Just answer the question!

    The former leader of The Network is running out of patients as the Homeless Guy ponders for a moment.

    Homeless Guy: THE ROCK!

    Cyrus’ eyes looks set to bug out of his head which confuses the Homeless Guy again, whilst Jerry shakes his head, looking down at his feet.

    Cyrus: God damn it, say that your favourite wrestler is Jerry Lynn!

    Homeless Guy: Who?

    Cyrus: Jerry Lynn.

    Homeless Guy: Uhm, who’s that?

    Cyrus: JUST SAY IT!

    Homeless Guy: I-I’m sorry, I can’t. I just really have no idea who this Jerry Lynn person is.

    Having seemingly lost this battle, Cyrus cocks his bead in frustration, until he gets a view of Lynn who looks a mix of upset and embarrassed. Suddenly, CYRUS BEGINS STOMPING THE LIFE OUT OF THE HOMELESS PERSON, REPEATEDLY DRIVING HIS FOOT INTO THE HOMELESS MAN’S CHEST!!!

    Onlookers continue to jog by, not wanting to get involved, as Jerry Lynn looks shocked, jaw dropped as he wonders what he should do. He walks up to Cyrus and puts a hand on his shoulder, forcefully stopping him from continuing to beat on the moaning homeless man…

    Cyrus looks a little confused at the stop, as both men stare each other for a moment… AND NOW JERRY LYNN JOINS CYRUS AS THEY BOTH KICK THE SHIT OUT OF SOME POOR HOMELESS GUY!!!

    Jerry Lynn: This is your own fault, all you had to do was SAY THAT I’M THE BEST!!!

    The homeless guy is non-responsive as the beating continues, including Lynn landing a ferocious kick to the defenceless man’s head. Feeling as if he has proved his point, Lynn stops the beating, puts his hands in his pocket, gets the sad look on his face again and continues down the Central Park path. Meanwhile, Cyrus straightens up the collar on his suit, takes back his one-dollar bill and steals the rest of the coins in the homeless man’s hat, before running after Lynn…



    We now immediately cut to ringside where the famous New York fans have broken out in chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Our competitors for the first match are already in the ring, as the referee calls for the bell, signalling the beginning of the battle of the, erm, referees.

    Match One
    Danny Daniels vs. HC Loc

    Because both these guys aren’t exactly trained wrestlers ready to be in the ring at this point, this match was never going to be a classic. Funnily enough, both men decided to wrestle the match in their usual referee uniforms. This at times would have made things a little difficult for the casual viewer as it would have felt as if there were three referees in the match and no wrestlers. The lack of training in actual wrestling was apparent early between the two, as the opening minute of the bout consisted of brawling. Both men dug in and threw haymakers at each other until Daniels tried to run away.

    Daniels lured Loc to sliding back inside of the ring, only to be clobbered with a Double Axe Handle to the back. From here, Daniels attempted a DDT but Loc basically threw him away. HC then lands a few Clotheslines, before getting massive cheers from the fans, AS HE GETS DANIELS UP AND DRILLS HIM TO THE CANVAS WITH A POWERBOMB!!!

    HC Loc gets back to his feet with a smile on his face, enjoying the adoring fans, and he signals that the match is close to coming to an end, until he turns straight into a GORE OUT OF NOWHERE BY THE ECW TELEVISION CHAMPION RHINO!!!

    Holy Shit. HC Loc may be dead. The fans immediately breakout into chants of “ECDUBBYA”,“ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, clearly loving the unstable actions of Rhino. One man who doesn’t enjoy the actions is the referee, who marches towards Rhino, admonishing him… SO RHINO PUTS HIS HEAD DOWN AND CHARGES ACROSS THE RING, DELIVERING A GORE TO THE REFEREE AS WELL!!!

    The “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants continue, as Danny Daniels rolls under the bottom rope and scurries to the back. Meanwhile, on commentary Joey Styles confirms that it is probably safe to rule this one a No Contest.

    No Contest @ 2:13

    Some of the fans up the ramp notice Daniels making his way to the back, and begin chanting “PUSSY”, “PUSSY”, “PUSSY”. Those chants quickly die down though as Rhino takes his ECW Television Title from around his waist and drops it to the floor.

    HC Loc still hasn’t moved as Rhino now heads outside of the ring and begins looking under the ring for something…Eventually dragging a wooden table from underneath the ring, which draws a HUGE POP from the ECW fans.

    The TV Champion is almost salivating at the thought of violence, as he sets up the table on the floor. He slaps the table once or twice to test its sturdiness, which sends echoes throughout the arena. ‘The Big F’n Deal’ now slides back into the ring, heaving the lifeless Loc to his knees, so he can lock in a Front Facelock and begin dragging him towards the ropes.

    Our fans are in two minds, praying for somebody to save HC Loc, but still wanting to see some violence. Methodical in his nature, Rhino drags HC through the ropes and onto the apron, getting him in position for a Piledriver... UNTIL THE FANS START CHEERING LIKE CRAZY!!!

    Rhino looks towards the ramp and drops Loc, rolling him to the floor… AS SPIKE DUDLEY IS SPRINTING DOWN THE RAMP!!!

    Rhino remains standing on the apron, yelling and motioning for Spike to “BRING IT”, and Dudley doesn’t back down, climbing up the ring steps and running onto the apron. The TV Champion swings wildly with a haymaker which Spike ducks… BEFORE KICKING RHINO RIGHT IN THE DICK!!!

    Groans can be heard echoing throughout the arena as Rhino drops to his knees, clutching at his crown jewels. This arena is in pandemonium as the fans go crazy, meanwhile Spike steps into the ring and picks up the ECW TV Title. Spike cocks it like he’s a baseball player and waits, and when Rhino uses the ropes to get back to his feet… SPIKE CHARGES THROUGH HIM, LANDING A TELEVISION TITLE SHOT RIGHT TO THE HEAD!!!

    The champion drops to the apron again, out of it, as the fans once again chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Realising this is his chance, Dudley quickly throws the title to the floor, before carefully bringing Rhino to his feet…AND SENDING RHINO AND HIMSELF THROUGH THE TABLE ON THE FLOOR WITH AN ACID DROP OFF THE APRON!!!

    “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”chants increase by tenfold as both men remain down, surrounded by the rubble from the broken table. As neither man moves, on commentary Joey Styles puts over how we rarely see Rhino get taken apart like this.

    Eventually Spike rolls out of the mess and away from the broken body of Rhino, and begins crawling towards the apron. He slowly and sorely uses the apron to drag himself to his feet, before picking up the ECW Television Championship and raising it above his head.

    He enjoys the adulation from the fans, smiling through his grimace for a moment, before he carelessly throws the title onto the chest of Rhino. With the fans continuing to cheer him on, Spike looks down into the face of Rhino and yells “I TOLD YOU, THIS IS NOT OVER”!

    With the champion, still being down and out, only just beginning to move, and his point being proven, Spike slowly makes his way to the back, slapping hands with the fans as he does so…



    Our cameras now take us backstage to where we see a black curtain hung up in the background to seemingly make an area look professional, but it still looks cheap. Standing in front of the curtain though, and in front of the camera, ready to chat to the world is Dawn Marie. As her whole body comes into view, Dawn can be shown wearing a brand new, skin tight red, glitter covered dress, much to the delight of the fans who shoot wolf whistles to her. The smiling Marie stifles a little giggle as best as she can, before she begins to speak.

    Dawn Marie: I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again and this time it will come true… Tonight is going to be a good night because I know that Steve is about to win the title.

    Dawn pauses, letting out yet another big smile, showing off those pearly whites, but her face quickly changes to one of disdain, as an arrogant looking CW Anderson comes into screenshot. Anderson walks right up to Dawn, puffing out his chest, doing his best to intimidate her and it seems to be working.

    CW Anderson: You’ve said your piece, Dawn and now it’s time for you to leave. Your time is over so you need to get out of my face, and when you do, give your boys my best.

    CW takes one more step towards Dawn, not actually threatening to do anything, but he still has a scary look on his face. Marie’s stubbornness leads her to not move for a moment or two, before choosing to fight another day, giving Anderson a dirty look and walking away…

    Anderson watches her leave and laughs to himself, and then once again becomes serious, shaking his head at the camera.

    CW Anderson: I think my actions with Jazz in the past have clearly shown my opinion, but just in case they haven’t, I hate females in wrestling.

    He curls his lip at the thought of women in wrestling, as the predominantly male crowd boo his assessment.

    CW Anderson: Which is probably one of the main reasons why I hate Tommy Dreamer, because I proved at Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street that Tommy’s a little feminine.

    Anderson laughs at his own joke, keeping a shit eating grin on his face now.

    CW Anderson: Think about it, it really makes sense. Tommy spends night after night always on his back staring up at the lights…

    CW mockingly looks towards the ceiling, as arrogant as ever.

    CW Anderson: I think that’s where the femininity comes in, because being on your back and staring at the lights is exactly what all my bitches do!

    BOOO’s from the fans, and Anderson gets serious now, the joking is over, and he even begins to look a little mad.

    CW Anderson: I have a confession I need to make about a couple of weeks ago at Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street. I made a mistakenot finishing Dreamer for good.

    He looks down at the ground, clearly annoyed at himself.

    CW Anderson: But the good thing about wrestling is that there is always a rematch, so I’m going to get a chance to rectify my mistake.

    The disappointment has vanished from Anderson’s face now, and instead there is a look of hope.

    CW Anderson: I’m not going to just beat Tommy in another match, I want Tommy’s dignity and pride. I’m going to make Tommy tap if he’s got the guts to face me at Guilty as Charged!

    Anderson now dead pans the camera, really wanting to send a message.

    CW Anderson: Tommy… Listen very carefully, whether you like it or not, you are going to tap out to an Anderson!

    The determined CW continues to stare into the camera, not even blinking, almost as if he’s looking directly into Dreamer’s soul, as we cut to a commercial break.

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    “False Salvation” by All Out War greets the fans in the arena when we return from the commercial break, bringing out Da Baldies. Angel and Tony DeVito slowly strut down the ramp, ignoring the heat from the extremely vocal fans. The duo snarl at some fans and look comfortable in their hostile environment, ready to go to war tonight. The two men continue to look fired up inside of the ring as “Big Balls” by Boner changes the mood in the arena instantly, as a BIG TIME POP can be heard for Balls Mahoney and Pierre Carl Oulette, collectively known as Eye Balls. Despite the cheers from the fans, Eye Balls are all business tonight, walking straight towards the ring, with Mahoney looking in an incredibly bad mood. As he walks past a camera, he yells “I WANT MY CHAIR BACK”! The two men then slide into the ring and are ready to fight with their thug opponents.

    Match Two
    Da Baldies vs. Eye Balls

    Not much to say about this one, initially all four men duke it out inside of the ring, causing a huge brawl to break out. After what feels like an eternity of breaking the rules of tag team wrestling, the referee is able to gain some control of the match. As the match settles down, Da Baldies get in some offense, but the class of Eye Balls really shines through. After only a few minutes, they isolate DeVito so BALLS CAN LAND THE NUTCRACKER SUITE!!! He then quickly tags out to Pierre Carl Oulette, who instead of getting inside of the ring, climbs up to the top rope… BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE RING WITH LE CANNONBALL!!! PIERRE IMMEDIATELY HOOKS THE LEG…1…2…3!

    Winners – Eye Balls @ 3:45

    As the referee calls for the bell, DeVito rolls out of the ring, and Mahoney joins PCO inside to get their hands raised by the ref. Once their hands are raised, they share a quick smile, and nod in appreciation for the unwavering support from the fans. They still don’t look to be in good spirits though, as they have a quick discussion amongst themselves, and then look towards the ramp. Balls yells “COME ON OUT WITH OUR CHAIRS BOYS”, which is clearly a message to Team Me.

    Eye Balls wait and wait… UNTIL TEAM ME COME RUNNING THROUGH THE CROWD!!!

    The audience is buzzing like crazy with some of the ECW fans even trying to beat the shit out of Johnny Swinger and Simon Diamond. They have the stolen chairs with them, as they slide inside of the ring, standing behind the team of Eye Balls…

    Eventually Eye Balls turns around… AND TEAM ME SWING WITH THE CHAIRS… BUT BOTH MEMBERS OF EYE BALLS DUCK THE CHAIR SHOTS… AND DROP THEIR OPPONENTS WITH SOME HARD-RIGHT HANDS!!!

    Team Me drop to the canvas, leavingthe chairs on the mat. Balls and PCO both mount Team Me and hammer away withmore punches, much to the enjoyment of the blood thirsty fans.

    After a while, they get off their rivals and pick up their custom-made steel chairs, becoming accustomed to them once again. Balls and PCO both slam the chairs on the canvas, making some noise, as they wait for Team Me to get up… WHEN SUDDENLY… BOTH MEMBERS OF TEAM ME ROLL UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND TO SAFETY!!!

    The heat is enormous as Eye Balls stand inside the ring with their chairs, urging Team Me back in, whilst Team Me look furious, backing up the ramp, deciding to fight another day. As they continue to back up the ramp, the fans serenade them with chants of “PUSSIES”, “PUSSIES”, “PUSSIES” which brings a rare smile across the faces of PCO and Balls…



    Finally, Eye Balls begin making their way towards the back when a video package begins to play…

    ***

    The video package recaps the highlights of the Triple Threat Match from ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, where the winner would become the number one contender for the ECW Championship. The clip shows all the high impact highlights of the match, ending with The Sandman managing to land the White Russian Leg Sweep on Kid Kash. Before he can finish him off, Steve Corino gets back inside of the ring and drops Sandman with the Old School Kick. ‘The King of Old School’ then delivers the Old School Expulsion to the downed Kash, leading to the victory.

    ***

    With the video package completed, we head up to The Bird’s Nest, where a suited-up Joey Styles is standing by, disappointedly shaking his head at the footage we just watched. Before beginning to speak, ‘The Voice Of ECW’ straightens up his shirt collar and clears his throat.

    Joey Styles: Ladies and gentlemen, as you all just saw, at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, the opportunistic Steve Corino took advantage of The Sandman’s hard work on Kid Kash to become the number one contender for the ECW Championship. As mentioned last week, Corino’s title match will be tonight’s main event and that is coming up next.

    Joey can’t help but get a smile on his face as the fans in the arena mark out for the fact that the ECW Championship match is next.

    Joey Styles: However, this is not the only match that will take place over the next few weeks that has ECW Championship ramifications. As we all saw at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, the former ECW Champion Justin Credible finally ended his feud with Jerry Lynn. I must admit, it was a little surprising to me that Credible got the victory as most people, including myself assumed Jerry Lynn would finally beat Justin Credible once and for all.

    Styles shrugs his shoulders a little, showing that he just plain got it wrong.

    Joey Styles: With some of the things that Justin Credible did whilst being the ECW Champion, including joining The Network and walking out of matches, he was the worst representative of ECW …

    Joey shakes his head at the thought of Credible’s title reign, as the fans don’t make much noise, clearly agreeing.

    Joey Styles: But despite all the issues he caused with his last title reign, after his victory over Jerry Lynn two weeks ago, he has a fair claim to a title shot.

    Boos from the fans now, who clearly don’t agree. Joey isn’t effected by the reaction to much, as he pauses to wait for it to die down.

    Joey Styles: Some would argue that after his performance in the triple threat match at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street, that The Sandman also has fair claim to a title shot… So, ECW has signed for next week, Justin Credible versus The Sandman!

    Joey lets out a smirk, getting excited as the fans cheer like crazy for the announcement.

    Joey Styles: Next week’s match will be a number one contender’s match for the ECW Championship, as the winner will get the final ECW Title shot of the year two thousand the following week!

    More cheers from the fans now, who are looking forward to a few weeks of big time matches. Meanwhile, Styles maintains his excited smile, before signing off…



    Instead of heading to ringside for the main event, we are taken to another area backstage, where a furious ECW Television Champion Rhino is pacing back and forth. For a moment he stops pacing, and gets close to the camera, pulling out a splinter from his forehead, whilst trembling with rage. He then throws the chip of wood to the floor, before letting out a yell and pacing again.

    Rhino: NOBODY PUTS ME THROUGH A TABLE!

    Rhino shakes his head and then punches his own chest a couple of times.

    Rhino: I PUT PEOPLE THROUGH TABLES!

    Pure anger as Rhino continues to yell at the top of his lungs.

    Rhino: I BREAK PEOPLE IN FUCKING HALF WITH A TABLE!

    The TV Champion motions breaking something in half with his hands.

    Rhino: SPIKE DUDLEY WANTS MORE?

    A sickening grin comes across Rhino’s face, as veins bulge from his neck and forehead.

    Rhino: THANK FUCKING CHRIST!

    He mockingly puts his hand together as if he was praying, whilst his face continues to redden.

    Rhino: BECAUSE I NEED MY GOD DAMN FIX!

    Rhino turns his arm and begins slapping it, as if he’s a junkie looking to shoot up.

    Rhino: I’M ADDICTED TO VIOLENCE!

    He pauses, trying to regain control of his breathing.

    Rhino: AND NOBODY’S GIVING ME MY FIX ANYMORE…

    There is complete silence inside the arena, as Rhino’s breathing can be heard. After a few moments, he seems to have finally calmed himself down.

    Rhino: I deserve more respect because I’m the Television Champion and this belt is mine forever.

    ‘The Big F’n Deal’ has a smirk on his face, as he takes his title from around his waist, and holds it in the air.

    Rhino: This is my title, not RVD’s…

    BOO from the fans as Rhino continues.

    Rhino: This is my title, not New Jacks…

    Rhino shakes his head, further emphasising his point.

    Rhino: This is my title, Not Kid Kash’s…

    Suddenly, he begins trembling with rage once again.

    Rhino: AND IT'S SURE AS HELL NOT SPIKE DUDLEY’S!

    The scariest man on the roster grits his teeth before continuing.

    Rhino: HE PUT ME THROUGH A TABLE?

    Rhino points at himself, looking confused, yet still furious.

    Rhino: I’LL PUT YOU IN THE FUCKING MORGUE AND THEN I’M COMING FOR THE REST OF YOUR STUPID FUCKING FAMILY!

    Wow. Intensity Personified. Rhino’s pacing is picking up pace as he lets his words sink in.

    Rhino: I’LL GO FIND YOUR STUPID RAT AND I’LL FUCK HER MOUTH UNTIL SHE CHOKES… AND THEN I’LL BREAK HER NECK WITH MY DICK!

    Nobody in the arena knows how to react, as the champion has completely lost control now, slapping himself across the face.

    Rhino: RHINO… RHINO… RHINO… SAY MY NAME…

    He is wheezing now, so worked up that he’s struggling to breathe, but that won’t stop him from continuing his rant.

    Rhino: I NEED VIOLENCE, SPIKE…VIOLENCE… I FUCKING LOVE VIOLENCE…AND I NEED IT!!!

    The psychotic champion now finishes pacing back and forth, and looks right into the camera.

    Rhino: BIG… FUCKING… DEAL!

    Rhino lets out a primal roar before walking out of screenshot, having just cut one of the most intense promos in history.

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    We’re back from the final commercial break of the evening and it is main event time. Firstly, “The Old School Style” by Boner rocks through the speakers, getting an initial pop, however the reaction quickly disintegrates into heat as Steve Corino makes his way out from the back. As per usual, not to far behind are Dawn Marie and Jack Victory, both cheering on their man. Whilst the fans continue to hurl abuse at the trio, there is no arrogance, no smiles, no nonsense from Corino tonight, as he simple walks down the ramp, gets into the ring and waits for his opponent. He finally makes one small motion of the ECW Championship coming around his waist, as the commentators put over just how focused Corino looks. “Smack My Bitch Up” by The Prodigy completely changes the crowd reaction, as by far THE LOUDEST POP OF THE NIGHT is left for the ECW World Heavyweight Champion, Yoshihiro Tajiri. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ stalks down the ramp, getting advice from The Sinister Minister, whilst refusing to take his eyes off his long-time rival inside the ring. Once Tajiri gets inside of the ring, he raises the title above his head to another huge ovation, before handing the belt to the referee, and once again, directing all his attention to the ultra-focused Corino.

    Match Three
    ECW World Heavyweight Championship Match
    Yoshihiro Tajiri (c) w/The Sinister Minister defends against Steve Corino w/Dawn Marie and Jack Victory

    Despite the focus levels of Corino heading into this one, nothing could have prepared him for Tajiri in the early stages. ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’ clearly got the jump on his rival, using his superior speed to keep Corino off the pace, and scoring several near falls. As the battle waged on, Dawn Marie and Jack Victory began panicking at ringside, and after Corino landed a Back Suplex, they slid a steel chair into the ring for him. ‘The King of Old School’ crawls towards the chair and picks it up, waiting for Tajiri to get to his feet, and when he does… CORINO CHARGES AT THE CHAMPION WITH THE CHAIR… BUT TAJIRI NAILS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK…WHICH SENDS THE STEEL CHAIR BACK INTO THE FACE OF CORINO!!! CORINO COLLAPSES, DROPPING THE CHAIR… AND TAJIRI MAKES THE COVER…1…2…NO!!! CORINO GETS A SHOULDER UP!

    The near fall scared the hell out of Marie and Victory on the outside, however Tajiri didn’t really seem to mind the fact that he gets to inflict more punishment on Corino. The fans are all chanting “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, as drops of bloodbegin running down the forehead and face of Corino. Sensing his chance to do some damage, the ECW Champion drags Corino up by the hair and drags him towards the ropes, before tying his arms up in the ropes, trapping him. With Corino unable to move, he screams at the top of his lungs, as Tajiri tees off with vicious body kicks, and after each one, he says things such as “CHINK”, “SLANT EYED”, “JAP BASTARD”. As the brutality to Corino’s body continues, the commentators put over that this is Tajiri paying Corino back for his disrespectful promo last week.

    Unlike previous encounters between these two, this one wasn’t going to be one sided. Even though Tajiri dominated a fair portion, he’s unable to put Corino away, and this lead to the tide changing. The number one contender fought back and eventually picked up the momentum of the match. After getting things back on track, Corino went and picked up the steel chair that backfired on him earlier. This time he waits for Tajiri to get up… AND HE SMASHES THE STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE FACE OF TAJIRI!!! CORINO IMMEDIATELY HOOKS BOTH LEGS…1…2…NO!!

    Both men remain down after the attempted pinfall, clearly feeling the effects of what has been a hellacious match so far. Corino is clearly trying to catch his breath, whilst the champion is wiping blood out of his eyes after being on the receiving end of the steel chair. Eventually Corino gets to his feet and turns his attention towards his posse on the outside. He yells at them “GET ME A TABLE”, as the fans continue chanting “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The Sinister Minister tries to intervene but Dawn distracts him with her cleavage, which allows Victory to get under the ring unimpeded and slide a table to Corino. ‘The King of Old School’ immediately grabs the table and sets it up close to the middle of the ring. Tajiri has begun stirring so Corino stomps on him a few times, before dragging him up and tossing him into the corner. In the corner, Steve lands some straight punches, before hoisting Tajiri up onto the top rope. Corino follows him up, landing a few more punches… BEFORE BEING ABLE TO CONNECT WITH A MASSIVE SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE AND THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

    Holy Shit! Those famous “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants are back as both men lay unmoving in the centre of the ring. After a few more moments, CORINO MANAGES TO DRAPE AN ARM OVER THE CHEST OF TAJIRI…1…2…3! NO! TAJIRI JUST GETS A SHOULDER UP!!!

    One must wonder what needs to be done to keep Tajiri down. ‘The King of Old School’ plans to find out, as he slowly crawls towards the ropes, using them to get himself up, clutching at his back as he does so. Corino’s peroxide blonde hair is stained red, as he now waits, leaning on the ropes… Tajiri shows true heart by rolling away from the rubble and getting himself back to his feet… ONLY FOR CORINO TO LOOK FOR THE OLD SCHOOL KICK… BUT TAJIRI DUCKS… AND LANDS A DROPKICK TO THE KNEE!!!

    Corino collapses to his knees, his leg giving out on him…SO TAJIRI TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A BUZZSAW KICK!!!

    Rather than go for the pin, Tajiri falls back to the canvas himself, damn near passing out. “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out YET again for what has been an awesome, brutal war. This time it’s Tajiri who is using the ropes to get up first, whilst Corino remains motionless, just about done. Tajiri looks towards the fans who give him a standing ovation, before he puts his thumb across his throat, signalling that the end is near. Corino has finally begun moving but it’s not enough, so JACK VICTORY JUMPS UP ONTO THE APRON, YELLING “LOOK OVER HERE YA’ SLANT EYED PRICK”!

    This immediately gets Tajiri’s attention, and he walks towards Victory, who mouths “WHAT ARE YOU GONNA’ DO, LITTLE MAN?”. Surprisingly, Tajiri laughs at Victory, which shocks Jack… AND THEN TAJIRI BLOWS GREEN MIST STRAIGHT INTO VICTORY’S EYES!!!

    Victory falls to the mat, clutching at his eyes, as Tajiri leans over the ropes, looking down at his prey. The best fans in the world are again on the “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants whilst The Sinister Minister jumps up and down at ringside, trying to gain Tajiri’s attention. It’s easy to see why, as Dawn Marie has run around the other side of the ring, and slid the ECW Championship to Corino. On commentary, Joey Styles puts over the fact that Victory sacrificed himself as a decoy, meanwhile inside of the ring… CORINO WAITS FOR TAJIRI TO TURN… AND THEN SMASHES THE ECW CHAMPIONSHIP ACROSS HIS FACE!!!

    Boos reign from the audience now for the cheap tactics of Corino and his crew, whilst Tajiri is basically unconscious on the mat. The Sinister Minister looks out of his mind with worry, almost as if he has given up, as Corino yells “IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME NOW”. The challenger then goes to turn away from the audience and back to Tajiri… BUT TURNS STRAIGHT INTO A SINGAPORE CANE SHOT FROM THE SANDMAN!!!

    A BIG pop from the fans, as Corino drops to the mat… AND SANDMAN BEGINS WHALING ON HIM REPEATEDLY, LANDING NASTY BODY SHOTS WITH THE SINGAPORE CANE!!!

    Tajiri is still down but the fans are impressed anyway, chanting “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”,but one man who is not impressed is the referee. The match official walks up to The Sandman, ready to berate him… BUT THE SANDMAN KNOCKS THE REFEREE UNCONSCIOUS WITH A SINGAPORE CANE SHOT TO THE HEAD!!!

    No Contest @ 16:20

    At ringside, the bell is automatically rung once the referee has been knocked out, and with chaos everywhere, Joey Styles informs us that it is to safe to say that this match is probably being ruled as a No Contest.

    The ringing of the bell momentarily distracts The Sandman, who has the crowd going APESHIT, and this allows Corino to get dragged underneath the bottom rope by Dawn Marie.

    The Sandman clearly isn’t done raising hell, as he slides out of the ring, and threatens to hit Dawn with the Singapore Cane, which causes her to scamper across the ring.

    This allows for Sandman to grab Corino by the hair and throw him back inside of the ring. Corino is now lying next to the prone body of Tajiri, as The Sandman gets back into the ring, mounts Corino… AND BEGINS LAYING INTO HIM WITH STINGING PUNCHES!!!

    As the beating on Corino continues, Tajiri manages to drag himself to his feet… WHEN SUDDENLY JUSTIN CREDIBLE SLIDES INTO THE RING!!!

    Tajiri sees Credible out of the corner of his eye, and when Credible attempts to punch him, the champion ducks and begins rocking Credible with left and right body kicks. Credible is stunned however he manages to poke Tajiri in the eye, which stops the champion for a moment… AND THEN THE SANDMAN SWINGS THE SINGAPORE CANE AT JUSTIN CREDIBLE… BUT CREDIBLE DUCKS… AND SANDMAN DAMN NEAR SNAPS THE SINGAPORE CANE OVER THE HEAD OF TAJIRI!!!

    Gasps echo throughout the arena as Sandman looks shocked for a second, but there is still an overbearing chant of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. This is pure chaos as Credible now beats Sandman to the punch, landing a few right hands, before Corino joins in. Credible and Corino double team Sandman as they whip him into the ropes, and when he comes back, THEY TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A DOUBLE SUPERKICK!!!

    The chants are overtaken by volcanic heat now as both Tajiri and Sandman are down now, whilst Credible and Corino are now left standing in the ring. Credible seems a little unsure, whilst Corino, wobbly on his feet, yells at Credible, “LET’S DO IT, BITCH”! There is a pop for that from the crowd before the two-start hammering away, swinging haymakers, but being the fresher of the two, Credible easily gets the advantage.

    Credible sends Corino to the corner where he trails him in and continues to nail punches with little to no resistance. Having seen enough, DAWN MARIE JUMPS INTO THE RING TO TRY AND HELP CORINO… BUT SHE GETS SPEAR TACKLED TO THE MAT BY FRANCINE!!!

    AND NOW WE’VE GOT A FUCKING CAT FIGHT!!!

    Huge “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants break out again, as Francine and Dawn roll around the ring, pulling at each other’s hair. This clearly distracts Credible who is running around the ring after them, until eventually, unable to be ripped apart, they both roll under the bottom rope and to the floor.

    Outside of the ring and Dawn is on top now, as their cat fight continues.

    Meanwhile, inside of the ring, Credible turns his attention back to Corino, and GETS HIM IN POSITION FOR THE THAT’S INCREDIBLE… BUT CORINO KICKS HIS LEGS AND SLIDES DOWN CREDIBLE’S SHOULDERS… BEFORE NAILING CREDIBLE WITH THE OLD SCHOOL EXPULSION!!!

    ‘The King of Old School’ gets cheers for that, not because he’s a face, but because everybody hates Credible. Corino lets out a yell, wiping blood out of his eyes… WHEN HE GETS CAUGHT WITH A WHITE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP FROM THE SANDMAN OUT OF NOWHERE!!!

    More cheers from the fans, but before Sandman can get to his feet… TAJIRI DROPS HIM WITH A BUZZSAW KICK!!!

    Epic crowd reaction as everything inside this arena is at a fever pitch, as a bloodied Tajiri picks up the ECW Championship and raises it above his head.

    There are dual chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” and “TAJIRI”, “TAJIRI”, “TAJIRI”, as there are casualties littered inside of the ring, and the women at ringside.

    Despite everything, Tajiri continues to hold his title above his head, a fitting champion of ECW, the last man standing, as we fade to black.

    -END OF SHOW-

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Gonna drop you some random musings of your latest show. Not a full review as such, but I do have some things I want to discuss with regards to the major angles and stories from the show...

    Wow, what a creative opening to the show. Honestly don't ever remember seeing a homeless man used in the intro of a wrestling broadcast before, especially when he's getting the shit kicked out of him. So yeah, this was certainly different! A couple of laughs with the people just jogging past and not getting involved, and taking the poor guy's money from him. Lynn certainly seems to be on the verge of a breakdown after this...

    And another first for me, a match between referees. Certainly give you credit for the novelty factor of this show so far. Not so sure about you playing up their lack of training and wrestling skills and then there's a powerbomb, that seems a stretch for a referee to hit. But yeah, you kept this pretty short and sweet as like you said, it was never going to be a classic. The post match is where the drama is here, and Spike hitting the acid drop (best finisher name ever btw) through the table is a big statement for the little guy. Rhyno has always looked beastly in this thread, so it's a helluva rub for Spike to hit a spot like that. And then that Rhino promo later! So shouty and such language! But really got over how pissed and intense Rhino is about what happened. A beating has to be in poor little Spike's immediate future it seems.

    The other thing I really want to talk about is the main event and your handling of Tajiri. He's became a real star in this thread lately, he's vicious on the attack but also resilient when he needs to be. He's a great choice to be champion right now, someone the crowd can really get behind. As for the match, it was another good brawl, some pretty cool spots like the superplex through the table. And in traditional ECW-style, mayhem to end the show. One thing of note, you've only got three matches on this show and two of them have ended in no contests. Where no contests a common occurrence of the timeframe? Anyway, Sandman and Credible getting some licks in on each other before their match next week adds some heat to that... and then a catfight! Truly was a wild and chaotic finish, but there's the champ standing tall at the end. I really liked this, thought everyone had their chance to shine and make an impact, but with Tajiri left looking strong at the end. Really well booked here.

    That's just some ramblings I know, but the thread is going swimmingly well and this was another fun entry. The shows your producing are nuts and the use of language and some of the insults are so representative of the times, it's great fun to read. Keep up the good work man!

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    That opening vignette with Cyrus and Lynn was a lot of fun. Was taken aback by Lynn joining Cyrus in attacking the poor chap. He’s definitely gone off the deep end, and has me wondering if I was way off on my initial thought that Cyrus would just use Lynn for his own good. Now though, it appears Jerry has fully bought in to Cyrus koolaid. Real asshole move to beat up on a homeless person. Cyrus taking back the dollar and stealing change was fantastic.


    Surprised to see some moves out of the two referees. Knew something had to be up with this opening the show - and what do you know; Rhino arrives on cue to carry out some Rhino things.


    Pretty shocked to see Spike getting the better of Rhino here. I think Rhino might have to kill the little runt to finish off their rivalry at this point. Little Spike just keeps coming back for more!


    Anderson was golden here again, the whole promo flowed really well, with the interruption of Dawn and transitioning his insults toward Dreamer, referring to Tommy as a little feminine. The staring up at the lights stuff was great too, and CW just comes off as a total dick.


    Solid, quick win for the best team name in a BTB. Team Me being their typical selves by trying the ambush and eventually bailing when it doesn’t work out. Looking forward to a likely one on one (okay, two on two) showdown on PPV when Diamond & Swinger can’t run.


    You use Styles so brilliantly as the voice of reason. His displeasure at Credible, but begrudging recognition that Credible deserves a shot was written really well here. Big main event next week!


    “I’LL GO FIND YOUR STUPID RAT AND I’LL FUCK HER MOUTH UNTIL SHE CHOKES… AND THEN I’LL BREAK HER NECK WITH MY DICK!” Not a lime I’ll forget in a hurry. I know I say it every week, but Rhino is so great in this thread. This might’ve been his best promo yet.


    Of course Corino bladed, lol. Effective use of the mist to negate Victory late on, but the interference from Sandman was a surprise, considering he has his opportunity for a title shot next week.


    What a crazy finish to the show - even managing to get a cat fight in there lol. Loved that despite it all, Tajiri was left standing tall at the end, and paying Sandman back for the unintentional Cane shot was pretty badass from the Buzzsaw.

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. And imac, no contests were somewhat common with the chaotic nature of ECW.

    ***


    ECW Hardcore TV
    December 23rd, 2000
    Queens, New York

    No opening video, no pyro, no theme song, no bells and whistles. The show simply opens with the most loyal fans in the world, standing as one, chanting “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. The crazy chanting continues as our cameras finishing panning throughout the audience, and cut to ringside where inside the ring we see ‘The Voice of ECW’ Joey Styles and his broadcast colleague, Joel Gertner. Both men are dressed to impress, holding microphones, with Styles smiling and Gertner comically joining in with some of the fans chants.

    After what feels like an eternity with these loud, extreme fans, their noise levels begin to die down, which allows Joey to speak.

    Joey Styles: WELCOME TO ECW HARDCORE TV!

    The hooting and hollering from the audience continues, as both broadcasters enjoy the fans reaction.

    Joey Styles: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m Joey Styles and alongside me is my broadcast colleague, Joel Gertner!

    Another big pop from the fans, followed by duelling chants of “JOEY”, “JOEY”, “JOEY” and “GERTNER”, “GERTNER”, “GERTNER”.

    Joel Gertner: Thank you for that wonderful introduction, Joey. I think it’s rather fitting that we are here in Queens, because there’s so many queens in this place that I want to sleep with.

    Laughter from the fans, as Gertner forgoes his usual rhyming scheme, and chooses to be a little blunter. Joey rolls his eyes jokingly before speaking yet again.

    Joey Styles: I think we can all appreciate you putting your sexual escapades to the side, it just shows how big of a night this is!

    Joel Gertner: Oh, it’s big.

    More dick humour from Gertner, as Styles can’t help but laugh a little. Meanwhile Gertner is holding his hands apart, as if showing just how big it is.

    Joey Styles: Tonight, is huge as we will see the former tag team champions, The Full Blooded Italians in action… But not only that, we also have two matches with enormous championship ramifications.

    The all-around noise from the fans continues, as the commentators hype tonight’s show.

    Joel Gertner: First, we’ve got an ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street rematch as Rhino will defend the ECW Television Championship against Spike Dudley… And in the main event, the former ECW Champion Justin Credible will lock horns with The Sandman, and the winner will be the new number one contender for the ECW Championship!

    “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants greet the announcement of what is truly a stacked card tonight.

    Joey Styles: But before we get to that, we want to focus on one of the most underrated tag teams in all of wrestling. They are young, they are talented, and they have the potential to be one of the greatest teams in ECW history, please welcome… CHRISTIAN YORK AND JOEY MATTHEWS!!!

    Both commentators turn their attention towards the entrance way, and they don’t have to wait long until “Electric Molecular” hits over the pa system and Christian York and Joey Matthews step through the curtain. The young team get a pretty good pop, with Matthews gaining some extra sympathy since his arm that got injured last week is still in a sling. Once the duo gets inside of the ring, they clap to the fans, appreciating the support, before shaking the hands of both Joey Styles and Joel Gertner. Once their music dies down, Styles looks ready to ask his first question.

    Joey Styles: Thanks so much for joining us out here tonight. Now I hate to be sticking to such a negative topic right off the bat, but my eyes can’t help but be drawn towards that sling on Joey’s arm. At this stage, what have the doctors said and when will Joey be fit to compete again?

    A sombre look is on the face of Styles as he asks the question, whilst York and Matthews decide it’s best that Matthews answers this question. He steps towards Joey, and puts a hand on the microphone…



    WHEN SUDDENLY HE IS CLOBBERED IN THE BACK FROM BEHIND BY TEAM ME!!!

    As Joey falls to the mat, favouring his injured arm, Johnny Swinger and Simon Diamond immediately turn their attention towards York, hammering away on him with punches.

    Matthews remains down, clutching at his injured arm, as Team Me continue to beat on York, until they send him into the ropes, BUT YORK COMES BACK WITH A FLYING DOUBLE DROPKICK!!!

    The heat that was filling the arena disappears, as the ECW fans mark out for the awesome move by York. Both members of Team Me immediately get to their feet, but this time York has Matthews with him, and the young duo begin rocking Swinger and Diamond with hard lefts and rights.

    Suddenly, the mood in the arena changes and again there is heat, as despite the faces doing well inside of the ring, CW ANDERSON RUNS OUT FROM THE BACK AND SLIDES INTO THE RING!!!

    Inside the ring, despite his injured arm, Matthews is going to town with right hands, rocking Swinger, UNTIL HE TURNS STRAIGHT INTO A DIVORE COURT BY CW ANDERSON!!!

    After the move to Joey’s injured arm, his piercing screams fill the arena, causing several members of the audience to gasp.

    Anderson stands over Matthews, admiring his own handiwork, before he turns and grabs York from behind, holding his arms behind his back. With York defenceless, squirming with all his might, Simon Diamond tees off with repeated kicks to York’s body.

    Vulcanic heat is echoing throughout the arena again, until Anderson drops Diamond to the canvas, BECAUSE TOMMY DREAMER IS SPRINTING DOWN THE RAMP!!!

    Tommy garners and epic pop from the crowd as CW yells “BRING IT, OLD MAN”! Tommy nods his head and slides into the ring, charging at CW…BUT HE CHARGES STRAIGHT INTO AN ANDERSON SPINEBUSTER FROM CW!!!

    You can almost hear the air drain out of the audience with the shocking domination from Anderson. Tommy and Joey are still down, which means it’s once again York against three.

    The dastardly duo all begin stomping all over Christian York… UNTIL BALLS MAHONEY AND PIERRE CARL OULETTE URGENTLY MAKE THEIR WAY OUT FROM THE BACK!!!

    The team of Eye Balls now slide into the ring, and Anderson instructs his buddies, “GET THEM”. As CW continues beating the down and out York, Swinger and Diamond charge at Balls and PCO, only to get beaten to the punch.

    Mahoney and Oulette dominate Team Me with straight punches, causing their enemies to back into the ropes to remain standing. They then hit stereo Clotheslines to send both members of Team Me over the top rope and to the floor.

    “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out from the fans, as both members of Eye Balls now stand and wait, watching CW Anderson. CW eventually realises he is now outnumbered and he gets up and attempts to beg off Eye Balls, UNTIL HE TRIES TO CHARGE AT BOTH MEMBERS… BUT THEY DUCK AND LAND A DOUBLE BACK BODYDROP… SENDING ANDERSON OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TUMBLING INTO JOHNNY SWINGER AND SIMON DIAMOND!!!

    Those “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants continue as Eye Balls begins checking on York inside of the ring. Meanwhile, on the outside, the frustrated trio of Team Me and CW back away from the ring, yelling that “THIS IS NOT OVER”!



    Once the heels have left the ringside area, York, Matthews and Tommy Dreamer all manage to be back inside of the ring with Eye Balls. The five all shake hands and seem happy, which brings out even more “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants from the fans. “This Is Extreme” by Harry Slash and The Slashstones now plays over the pa system as pyro hits, and we get somewhat of a normal show opening, whilst the five men go around and converse with some of the grateful fans around ringside…



    As the feel, good celebrations continue around ringside, we cut to a locker room in the backstage area, where Dawn Marie, Jack Victory and Steve Corino are standing around having a conversation. The trio now collectively known as Camp Corino (Thanks, Jim Cornette), all seem to be in pretty good spirits even though The Sandman screwed Corino out of the ECW Championship last week. Suddenly, the door swings open and in walks Cyrus with a massive smile on his face. He greets them like old friends, giving Corino and Victory a hug each, as they both stand there with confused looks on their faces. Dawn doesn’t really react to much though, instead deciding to watch how things pan out.

    Cyrus: Oh my god, it’s so good to see you guys. It doesn’t feel like it has been three long months since we were running this company. Steve, I must say, I’m real proud of how you’ve gotten yourself over.

    Cyrus continues to have a smile on his face, as Corino listens on, still looking puzzled.

    Cyrus: No matter what the fans or anybody else say, you’ve done it the right way.

    This time the trio nod, agreeing with Cyrus’ words.

    Cyrus: You started at the bottom and you’ve worked all your way up to the top. It’s a feel-good story, Steve, and that’s what we like in the office.

    Cyrus continues looking happy as, until Corino cocks his head, almost as if he misheard something. He keeps the confused look on his face which causes Cyrus to stop speaking.

    Steve Corino: What are you talking about? What office?

    Despite the serious nature of Camp Corino, Cyrus bursts out laughing and slaps Steve on the back as if to say, “good one”.

    Cyrus: Oh Steve, you crack me up… Seriously though, you know…

    There is still confusion amongst the group as Cyrus decides to stop laughing and joking around now.

    Cyrus: Listen, here and now probably isn’t the time and place, but I think we should have a talk.

    With a dirty look, Cyrus motions towards the camera, clearly not wanting to speak where he can be heard.

    Cyrus: Without giving to much away, all I can really say right now is that there are some big things happening.

    The former leader of The Network has a smirk on his face once again, whilst Camp Corino looks intrigued.

    Cyrus: And loyalty is a big thing with me, so I want to make sure my best pal Steve is a part of everything.

    The selling from Cyrus is finished and there is a long, awkward silence, with nobody willing to break itinitially. This gets Cyrus looking a little uncomfortable until…

    Jack Victory: Do these big things that are happening have anything to do with the state of this company? ECW seems to be in a rough patch, do you know what’s going on with all this morbid talk?

    Corino and Dawn nod along with Victory’s words, and Cyrus shoots them a knowing smile.

    Cyrus: That’s the questions that’s on everybody’s minds. I don’t know all the details but everything is not as dark as it seems.

    Camp Corino share quizzical looks as Cyrus refuses to elaborate any further.

    Cyrus: All I can really do at this stage is reassure you, you will all be fine.

    Having said his bit, Cyrus gives them one last smile, turns and leaves the room. Once the door is shut, Camp Corino still look confused, before ushering the camera man out of the room, and having their own private discussion,



    It’s now time for the first match tonight, so we head back to ringside where “Highway to Hell” by ACDC signals the arrival of the challenger in tonight’s title match, Spike Dudley. After having a few weeks to recover, Spike seems to be in pretty good shape, walking down the ramp with a purpose. Unlike he usually would, Dudley doesn’t greet the fans or acknowledge there pop, instead thinking about all the violent things he can do in tonight’s match. Once he’s inside the ring, “Debonaire” by Dope gets a HUGE POP, which turns into heat as the ECW Television Champion Rhino appears. The champion storms down the ramp, also ignoring the fans, before sliding into the ring and handing his title over to the referee. As the ref goes over the rules, both men are trembling with rage, ready to go to war one more time.

    Match One
    ECW Television Championship Match
    Rhino (c) defends against Spike Dudley

    This match starts off pretty similar to the one they had at ECW Massacre on Thirty Fourth Street a couple of weeks ago. In the early stages, driven by the emotion and hatred felt towards the champion, Spike is able to have his way with Rhino. This is not a wrestling match, this is a fight, and Spike uses a mix of speed and determination to continuously pepper Rhino and keep him on his toes.

    Eventually, ‘The Big Fuckin’ Deal’ heads to the outside to catch a breather, but Spike stays on him, using a variety of weapons to beat him around ringside. The challenger for the ECW Television Championship even sends Rhino into the crowd, and beats him further and further into the rafters.

    Once again, similarly to their match on pay per view two weeks ago, Spike is able to head to the top of the balcony near the audience, after laying Rhino out with a steel chair shot. Being the resilient beast that he is, Rhino fights his way to his feet… BUT SPIKE COMES OFF THE TOP OF THE BALCONY WITH A PLANCHA… TAKING OUT HIS OPPONENT AND HIMSELF!!!

    Both men are down as the New York fans break out into chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, clearly enjoying the high-risk spot. After a few moments, Spike slowly begins making his way to the feet, using the crowd barricade to do so, and once he’s up, even though he’s gingerly favouring his ribs, the fans give him a standing ovation. The smallest Dudley brother then resets his sights on the champion, slowly dragging him up by the hair, only for Rhino to shrug him off… AND SHOVE HIM AS HARD AS HE CAN INTO THE CROWD BARRICADE!!!

    Gasps echo throughout the audience as Spike clutches at his kidney’s, meanwhile this allows Rhino to shake out the cobwebs and get back to his feet. This is where the match differs from what occurred at the pay per view two weeks ago, as all the fight seems to have been beaten out of Spike. From this point forward, whether in the crowd, at ringside or inside of the ring, Rhino does whatever he pleases with Dudley.

    Towards the end of the match, after another hellacious beating at ringside, Rhino rolls Spike back inside of the ring. ‘The Big F’n Deal’ follows Spike into the ring and slowly begins to drag him back up… BUT SPIKE DRIVES HIS ARM STRAIGHT INTO THE BALLS OF RHINO, LANDING A DESPERATION LOW BLOW!!!

    Rhino drops to the mat, holding onto his crown jewels, whilst the fans mark out for the fact that Spike is making one last run at Rhino. Due to the beating Dudley has taken, it takes him awhile to get back to his feet, but when he does, he grabs the recovering Rhino by the head… AND JUMPS TOWARDS THE ROPES… LOOKING FOR THE ACID DROP… BUT RHINO HOLDS HIM IN MID AIR… AND THROWS SPIKE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT TO THE FLOOR!!!

    “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants ring out again as the vicious Rhino sadistically laughs at Spike, who landed very awkwardly with a splat on the outside. Not wanting to waste too much time, a furious Rhino heads outside of the ring, drags Spike up by the hair, puts him on his shoulders and carries him up to the apron. Once they are on the apron, Rhino puts him down, before scarily yelling in his face, “THIS IS NOW OVER”! Having sent his last message, Rhino now shoves Spike’s head between his legs… AND DRILLS HIM WITH A PILEDRIVER RIGHT ON THE RING APRON!!!

    Spike is motionless as an ecstatic Rhino rolls him underneath the bottom rope and back inside of the ring. Rhino then climbs into the ring and nonchalantly hooks the leg…1…2…3!!!

    Winner – Rhino @ 7:34

    The referee immediately calls for the bell and quickly hands Rhino his ECW Television Championship. Rhino has his hand raises by the referee before snarling at the ref, which is enough to cause the referee to comically scurry across the ring.

    Not wanting to deal with Rhino anymore, the referee kneels to check on the beaten Spike Dudley, who still hasn’t moved after suffering another crushing defeat at the hands of the ECW Television Champion.

    Rhino, on the other hand, stands over them, raising his title in the air, beating at his own chest, and letting out a roar, ready for whatever challenge is next.

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    Upon returning from the first commercial break of the evening, we head backstage where the ECW Tag Team Champions Danny Doring and Roadkill are standing by. Even with the championship belts around their waist, both men, especially Doring look extremely emotional and passionate, as he taps the title belt a few times, shaking his head as he begins to speak.

    Danny Doring: Even though it’s been what feels like an eternity since then, I’ll stillnever forget when we debuted…

    DD takes a moment to look over at his partner, whilst letting out a nostalgic grin and shaking his head.

    Danny Doring: We came in on day one and we were ready to become the ECW Tag Team Champions because we thought we’d already paid our dues.

    Roadkill remains looking rather stoic, as Doring pauses again, mulling over his words.

    Danny Doring: Then when we arrived at the arena that night for action, we got put on the ring crew.

    The champions stifle some laughter when they think about their humble beginnings.

    Danny Doring: We’d show up night after night, setting up and packing up the ring over and over again. Maybe if we were lucky we’d get booked in a match a few times.

    Doring pauses, letting his words sink in.

    Danny Doring: But we’d get put in matches where we were ridiculously overmatched, it was us getting thrown to the lions.

    Both men get a slight look of irritation on their faces having to relive those frustrating times.

    Danny Doring: We were really getting into a rhythm of setting up the ring and then getting our asses kicked in it, until Roadkill got put out of action for awhile.

    DD looks over at his partner, who shakes his head in disappointment.

    Danny Doring: This wasn’t an injury to an ECW mainstay who had already earned everybody’s respect, this was an injury to an unknown. This is why you wouldn’t have read about the injury anywhere…

    The champions are almost sounding a little bitter, even though they don’t mean to.

    Danny Doring: The simple fact of the matter was, we weren’t important enough to get that reported on!

    Doring can’t help but smirk as heat comes from the audience in the arena, not agreeing with the words of Doring.

    Danny Doring: I still never forget heading to my first ever ECW show in my hometown all by myself. I had to ring the bell in my hometown and everyone said I was just a bell ringer.

    A wry smile from DD at the mention of this.

    Danny Doring: After all of those early set backs, after paying our dues, I never forgot.

    Danny shakes his head, further emphasising that he didn’t forget. Roadkill continues to just sort of stand there and listen.

    Danny Doring: After all the brutal lumps and bumps, I never forgot all my nights in the hospital…

    Doring now slaps his partner on the back a couple of times, smiling at him.

    Danny Doring: Throughout all the sleepless, pain ridden nights, Roadkill was the only one there.

    Roadkill shrugs his shoulders, clearly claiming that it’s not a big deal.

    Danny Doring: There is a special bond between the two of us, and that’s how this happened.

    As he’s speaking, Doring taps the championship belt around his waist.

    Danny Doring: That’s the story about how we came together as a team…

    Both men nod at each other, happy with where they have come.

    Danny Doring: I just want to make it clear as I tell this story, that I’m not mad about all the beating or people laughing at us.

    This draws some confused looks amongst the crowd, but Doring can’t see them and continues.

    Danny Doring: It’s just all part of our story, and they helped get us here.

    This time Doring takes the title from around his waist and looks at it, cherishing the moment. Roadkill does the same, showing that they are enjoying being champions.

    Danny Doring: Sometimes after so much sacrifice you need a little reward. These belts are a symbol for all our work and for everyone like Perry Saturn and Taz who trained us…

    The two get a little emotional at the thought of their old school trainers.

    Danny Doring: Despite at the time everything feeling a little rough, thank you for beating the men into us!

    They share another smile, as Doring lets his words sink in.

    Danny Doring: There not the only people we need to thank right now though, we need to thank Tommy and Paul for letting us be ourselves.

    Big time cheers emanate inside the arena for this statement.

    Danny Doring: I know we’re a team but on a personal note, my mum died before she could see this but we did it, mum.

    It almost looks as if a tear is about to drop down the emotional DD’s cheek, as Roadkill puts a supportive hand on his shoulder.

    Danny Doring: From the bottom of our hearts, thanksto everyone!

    They give an appreciative nod before moving on.

    Danny Doring: And I want to make a promise to the whole world right now, we will defend these titles against anyone.

    The champions now stand a little straighter, wanting to send a message, facial expressions hardening a little.

    Danny Doring: Not only will we defend these titles against anyone, but we’ll do it at any time. That means we are happy to defend these titles next week and then again at the pay per view.

    Another pop from the fans in the background.

    Danny Doring: Why? Because we’re no…

    Roadkill: CHICKENS~!

    Danny Doring and Roadkill hold onto those tag team titles, smiles on their faces, having laid out a challenge and ready to face the world…



    Back at ringside, “Fuck That” by Kid Rock blares throughout the pa system, and there is an ENORMOUS pop from the fans as Kid Kash steps through the curtain. Kash has a shocked look on his face, enjoying the massive reaction, slapping hands with the fans, before sliding into the ring, waiting for his partners to show up. KK doesn’t have to wait long as “Welcome to The Jungle” by Guns N Roses plays and Mikey Whipwreck steps through the curtain, all smiles much like Kash before him. Mikey is without Tajiri and The Sinister Minister tonight as he nods to the fans, and shakes hands with Kash once inside the ring. “Roadhouse Blues” by The Doors brings out yet another BIG-time pop, probably matching Kash’s and bigger than Mikey’s as Super Crazy runs down the ramp. There are no wasted motion as Crazy sprints down the ramp, even performing a little monkey roll, before sliding inside the ring and greeting his partners. “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” by The Beastie Boys changes the mood in the arena entirely, as The Full Blooded Italians strut towards the ring. As usual, the loudmouth Italians trade insults with the fans, with Little Guido leading the way, closely followed by Scotty Anton and Tony Mamaluke. Sal E. Graziano isn’t far behind as well, although he’s in a custom-made leather jacket because he won’t be competing tonight. Once the Italians are inside the ring, the referee steps in between the two teams to keep them apart and calls for the bell.

    Match Two
    Six Man Tag Team Match
    Kid Kash, Mikey Whipwreck and Super Crazy vs. The Full Blooded Italians w/Sal E. Graziano

    With these six men, there was always only going to be one thing this match was full of: SPOTS~! Right from the get go, the referee struggles to maintain any sort of control, as each man basically enters and exits the ring whenever they please. Eventually, the faces are able to get the advantage, grounding Scotty Anton which leads to a legal man from each team finally being selected.

    Both being the huge risk takers they are, Kid Kash and Super Crazy actually make quite the formidable pairing. On numerous occasions whilst Mikey watched on with glee from the apron, Crazy and Kash worked together to land high impact, high risk moves to whichever member of The FBI was inside the ring with them. The innovative offense from the two lead the crowd to break out into several chants of “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”.

    For a fair portion of the contest, the only time The FBI could really maintain any sort of dominance was when Mikey was involved in the match. This usually occurred due to a miscommunication where Mikey was unable to gel with his unfamiliar teammates. Despite the miscommunications, there is no tension between the three as they all realize the incidents are innocent mistakes. On commentary, Joey Styles put over the fact that Mikey is probably so prepared for what Tajiri usually brings as a partner, that he’s struggling to adjust with these other styles on his team.

    As the match continued, we got to a point where The FBI looked in real trouble, with Kash and Crazy double-teaming Tony Mamaluke. Whilst this is happening, on the outside of the ring, BIG SAL TRIPS UP MIKEY WHIPWRECK, CAUSING HIM TO FALL OFF THE APRON AND TO THE FLOOR!!!

    The fans boo the hell out of the cheating from Big Sal, but Kash and Crazy are so distracted inside of the ring that they don’t see it. Meanwhile, Big Sal now picked up Mikey… CARRIES HIM AROUND RINGSIDE… AND SCOOP SLAMS HIM STRAIGHT THROUGH THE TIMEKEEPER’S TABLE!!!

    Holy shit! Mikey is down and out, as the fans overcome their initial disappointment to chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”. Big Sal has a huge grin on his face after the high impact move and he has every right to be, because from here, it’s a completely different match. The FBI use the 3 on 2 advantage to systematically destroy the valiant Kash and Crazy. Mikey is unable to recover and make any sort of rescue, so eventually LITTLE GUIDO LANDS THE LAST KISS ON KASH, AND HOOKS THE LEG…1…2…3!!!

    Winners – The Full Blooded Italians @ 10:13

    The heat from the fans continue after the referee signals for the bell, not believing that The FBI have just defeated their fan favourites. The Italian quartet all celebrate in the ring, enjoying the annoyed reaction from the fans, until it’s time to take their celebration to the next level. Big Sal pulls some Cuban cigars out of his leather jacket pocket, and they smoke some cigars as they make their way towards the back.

    Meanwhile, Kid Kash and Super Crazy slowly make it to their feet, before heading outside of the ring, to join the EMT’s checking up on Mikey. As all the on lookers continue to wear concerned expressions on their faces, we cut to a commercial break.

    -COMMERCIAL BREAK-

    The final commercial break of the night is complete, so we now head to an area in the back, where Joey Styles is standing by in his patented suit. As the fans in the arena begin chants of “JOEY”, “JOEY”, “JOEY”, Styles nods happily, before clearing his throat, straightening his collar and beginning to speak, whilst the fans chants finally die down.

    Joey Styles: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to ECW Hardcore TV! We are moments away from our main event, and before we get to that, I have some awesome news about what is sure to be another extreme event, ECW Guilty as Charged live on pay per view!

    There is a pop for the mention of the pay per view, which causes the excited Joey to smirk and nod along with the ovation from the fans.

    Joey Styles: Before I make the announcement regarding Guilty as Charged, I want to address the rumours that are swirling around surrounding ECW’s future. I have to admit a lot of things are up in the air.

    A sombre mood comes across the arena and Joey’s expression.

    Joey Styles: But regardless of everything that is happening behind the scenes, we are all still dedicated on bringing you the best show that we possibly can. I promise the show of a lifetime on January seventh because Tommy Dreamer has accepted CW Anderson’s challenger for the pay per view!

    A massive cheer erupts from the audience, as they enjoy the announcement of the match, and Joey’s passion. Styles is clearly doing his best to put on a brave face, and continue with his business.

    Joey Styles: This is a rivalry that has been going for months now, and with Anderson’s obsession with making Tommy give up in full swing, they will meet in an I QUIT MATCH!!!

    The excitement from the fans gets even louder, which forces Styles to pause again.

    Joey Styles: The next announcement concerns Guilty as Charged but it also includes next week which might be the last episode of ECW Hardcore TV for a period of time…

    Joey looks close to tears announcing that he doesn’t know if ECW will be on TV again, as the fans boo the hell out of the announcement.

    Joey Styles: I have two matches to announce for next week’s show, Team Me will fight Eye Balls and the ECW Tag Team Champions Doring and Roadkill will defend their titles against Hot Commodity!

    The ovation isn’t quite as big as the pay per view announcement, but we still get some cheers for two big time tag team matches next week.

    Joey Styles: These matches aren’t just related because they are both in the tag division, the winners of both these matches will face for the tag titles at Guilty as Charged!

    Even more cheers from the fans as Joey smiles one last time, before signing off and sending us back to ringside for the main event…



    It’s now main event time at ringside, so “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck” by Grinspoon rocks through the arena speakers, bringing out the former ECW Champion Justin Credible.Credible storms through the curtain to major heat from the fans, signalling that the title is coming back around his waist, whilst Francine is close behind, holding onto Justin’s Singapore Cane. Some of the expressive ECW fans yell obscenities towards Francine, but she ignores them, continuing to follow Credible to the ring. Once he’s inside the ring, Credible poses to the fans, gaining even more heat. “Enter Sandman” by Metallica gets a MAJORLY HUGE pop as everybody in the arena begins looking to the bleachers, where eventually The Sandman is located. Sandman completes his usual entrance, enjoying the “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN” chants, as he smokes a cigarette and smashes his beer can over his forehead. With his Singapore Cane in hand, Sandman walks through the crowd, copping plenty of overzealous slaps on the back, before he gets to ringside. Before stepping inside of the ring, Sandman humps the air whilst pointing at Francine, until he slides into the ring and prepares for battle.

    Match Three
    Number One Contender For ECW Championship Match
    Justin Credible w/Francine vs. The Sandman

    This match was brutal throughout, with both men showing their credentials for an ECW Championship match by beating the hell out of each other. Not only that, but both men demonstrated a lot of toughness to take what the other man dished out, and continuing to move forward. The whole match was out of control with the referee basically there as an onlooker, and just to count the three, as they fight inside the ring, outside the ring and even throughout the audience.

    As the match continued along, The Sandman began to gain the advantage and really begun to beat up Credible, however Justin would manage to stay in it. This is partly thanks to Francine,who kept interfering and doing everything she could, to allow Credible extra time to recover.

    Eventually the match gets to a point where both men battle to their feet, The Sandman picking up his Singapore Cane, and Justin Credible takes a little long to get up. Luckily, he has Francine on the outside and she tosses his Singapore Cane to him. He catches it and both competitors turn to each other, both cocking their Singapore Canes like they are baseball bats. The fans chant “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” as both men nod at each other, AND BEGIN SWINGING WILDLY AT EACH OTHER WITH THEIR SINGAPORE CANES!!!

    Both men land about four blows each with their Canes, UNTIL THE SANDMAN’S FIFTH CRACK WITH THE SINGAPORE CANE CAUSES CREDIBLE TO DROP HIS CANE AND TUMBLE TO THE CANVAS!!!

    The “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA”, “ECDUBBYA” chants are continuous, as Sandman raises his Singapore Cane above his head with a smirk on his face. Meanwhile, on the outside of the ring, Francine is losing her mind, realising that this match could be getting away from her man. Credible shows a tremendous amount of resilience, crawling towards the ropes and using them to get back up… But as soon as he does… THE SANDMAN GRABS HIM AND CONNECTS WITH THE WHITE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!!!

    Credible is down and out, as the fans cheer loudly, and begin another chant, this time yelling “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”, “SANDMAN”. The Sandman enjoys the response, smiling and nodding, before he drops the Singapore Cane and begins dragging Credible away from the ropes and to the middle of the ring. As soon as he positions Credible where he wants to, he let’s go of Credible’s arm… AND COPS AN OLD SCHOOL KICK TO THE FACE FROM STEVE CORINO!!!

    Corino is going to need a security escort out of the building tonight, because the heat is ENORMOUS from the fans. ‘The King Of Old School’ laughs at the fans reaction, sticking his tongue out a little, before he drags The Sandman up to his feet… AND DROPS HIM WITH THE OLD SCHOOL EXPULSION!!!

    Steve stands over the downed Sandman, ignoring the heat from the fans to yell “THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRY AND TAKE WHAT BELONGS TO ME”! The commentators talk about how Corino is referring to how Sandman interfered in his ECW Championship match last week. Having proved his point, Corino now leaves the ring, ignoring the chants of “FUCK YOU”, “FUCK YOU”, “FUCK YOU” and shrugging off the drinks that are thrown at him from the fans.

    With Corino now backstage, inside of the ring neither The Sandman or Credible are moving. That doesn’t last long though, as Credible begins stirring, and he crawls towards Sandman… MANAGING TO PLACE AN ARM OVER HIS CHEST…1…2…3!!!...

    NO!

    SANDMAN SOMEHOW GETS A SHOULDER UP!!!

    The fans mark out as there is still a little bit of fight left in The Sandman. Francine is cheering on Credible from the outside, as Justin slowly crawls towards the ropes, and uses them to pull himself back to his feet. The Sandman has managed to get up to one knee, when Credible immediately pounces, putting Sandman in position… AND DRILLING HIM WITH THE THAT’S INCREDIBLE!!!

    This time a desperate CREDIBLE HOOKS THE LEG…1…2…3!!!

    Winner – Justin Credible @ 15:22

    After the contest, the fans continue to reign down with ferocious heat, clearly not happy with the fact that Justin Credible has won the match. Credible has his hand raised by the referee, before dropping to his knees, raising both hands above his head and closing his eyes in ecstasy.

    Soon after, Francine jumps into the ring and Credible gets up, and Credible puts his arms out for a hug. Francine shakes her head but smiles, saying “GOOD JOB, BUT YOU NEED TO GET THE BELT BACK BEFORE I OPEN THESE LEGS AGAIN”!

    Credible looks a little frustrated at his woman’s attitude but deals with it, because tonight he is celebrating.

    Joey Styles: What a damn shame! Congratulations are in order for Justin Credible, but he shouldn’t be in this position in the first place. The Sandman had this match won until Steve Corino decided to get involved.

    Joel Gertner: I agree with you, Joey. The Sandman did have this won but Justin Credible showed some real toughness, managing to stay in the match despite the punishment he took. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good and that rang true for Justin Credible tonight.

    Joey Styles: Well, whether I like it or not, it’s a fact. Justin Credible defeated The Sandman tonight. On top of those two tag team matches announced for next week, we will now also see Tajiri defend his ECW Championship in a November To Remember rematch against Justin Credible!

    Joel Gertner: Oh, I can’t wait for that one!

    The focus is still at ringside where The Sandman has managed to roll outside of the ring, but he is still laying on the floor, in agony, both physically and emotionally.

    Meanwhile, inside the ring, Francine is applauding as Justin Credible is standing on the top rope, motioning that the ECW Championship will be around his waist again.

    The last image we see is of Credible yelling “THAT TITLE IS COMING HOME”, clearly ready for next week as we fade to black.

    -END OF SHOW-

    Re: December BTBOTM - Extreme Championship Wrestling by Stojy

    Just going to leave some quick thoughts on everything, I've been a silent reader of this for a while now, and with ECW's last real life PPV coming up, I'm curious on how you're take on it will be

    Opening segment was chaos as usual, typical ECW eh? I've really been enjoying Team Me as of late, but I have to admit, I feel like the CW Anderson/Tommy Dreamer feud has run it's course. I still enjoy it, I just feel that Massacre really should've been the blow-off here. Still, I'm sure they'll have a barnstormer at GAC.

    God I adore Cyrus, I was never able to watch the original ECW besides some PPVS and old shows, but man, he is awesome <3 Him trying to have banter with Steve and it's just not happening made me chuckle, it's cool you're addressing the real life troubles with ECW and how people are concerned abotu the future of the company. Cyrus sounds like he has something up his sleeve though, especially with the loyalty comment, so yeah, good segment.

    Rhino vs Spike was a good rematch from Massacre, The War Machine looked great here but Dudley looked awesome, surprisingly getting a good fair share of offence in. Great showing from both guys, I'd love to see one more match between these two though, maybe have RVD return and cost Rhino his title.

    Danny Doring's promo....Wow. Really emotional speech by Doring, never expected out of this team. I've never really cared for Doring and Roadkill, mainly because I felt they kind of just looked thrown together and awkward, but man this makes me want to go back and find out if I was wrong the full-time!

    FBI vs Kash, Crazy & Whipwreck I enjoyed, a good stunt match and I particularly enjoyed Whipwreck being so used to tagging with Tajiri that he just didn't gel with Kid and Crazy. Sal looked like a beast here, It looked like the FBI were gonna face Roadkill & Doring again, but Hot Commodity, Eye Balls or Team Me get that shot, so who knows what you have planned for them. Pulling for Diamond and Swinger to pull out the victory next week!

    Sandman and Credible just having a fun brawl, I always loved the Sandman, even though he has fucking NOTHING in terms of wrestling, I don't care! I just adore him and Credible having the cane war, just smashing each other. In my head this looks so fuckin cool. Fucking Corino!!! Costing my man the world title! Francine's line at the end after Justin won made me laugh, sounds like something she'd say after reading through this.

    Overall, I'm really intrigued about what's going to happen. With the next edition of Hardcore TV potentially being the last ever TV Taping, I'm really interested about where you're going with this. A great read that with the exception of mainly just personal feelings towards CW/Dreamer being nitpicks. There's a reason you've won BTB of the month countless times sir! I'd say keep it up, but I know you will
