TEN YEARS AFTER: Cyber Sunday 2006

WWE: Cyber Sunday
November 5, 2006
Cincinnati, OH
US Bank Arena

The current RAW champs are as follows:
WWE Champion: John Cena (9/17/2006)
WWE Intercontinental Champion: Jeff Hardy (10/2/2006)
World Tag Team Champions: The Spirit Squad (4/3/2006)
WWE Women’s Champion: Vacant (9/18/2006)

So there was this new PPV concept that WWE started in 2004 where they went – why don’t we let the fans choose stipulations to the matches and see how it goes? This was the age of American Idol and felt like a fresh idea. Since technology had finally made it easier than ever to make this work, why not give it a shot. Now whether or not the decisions were a work like everything else in wrestling is up for debate, but I think it’s always fun at least for the markiest of mark fans to think they are picking what they want to see. While the PPV started out as “Taboo Tuesday” in 2004, this is the first “Cyber Sunday” PPV. However, the concept did not produce dollar signs and was scrapped in 2008.

ECW on Sci-Fi
October 31, 2006
Milwaukee, WI
Bradley Center


Hey, why not? It’s Halloween. And ECW can be scary.

LAST WEEK: Paul Heyman is making Rob Van Dam jump through all kinds of hoops to get an ECW world title shot against the Big Show. They had a ladder match where the object was to retrieve the title match contract. DID RVD PREVAIL? Yes he in fact did.

Before we properly begin the show, Paul Heyman admits Rob Van Dam will get an ECW world title match against the Big Show. This week on ECW.com, RVD announced that he will face the Big Show at ECW’s next (and first as a third brand under the WWE umbrella) PPV on December 3 called December to Dismember. What Van Dam didn’t know is that Heyman has added unagreed upon match stipulations to this encounter. This match will include four others and will be an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER.

Your hosts are Joey Styles and Tazz.
