ECW: Unreleased Vol. 2
Released: July 30, 2013

This review is for the 3-disc DVD version, not the 2-disc blu-ray that contains some extra matches.

Joey Styles and Tommy Dreamer are your hosts. They show up every three matches or so, and they basically put people over and don’t take anything too seriously. There are some bits of footage here and there while they talk, which adds a nice touch. Also, many of these matches are proceeded by the full promos that went along with them when they originally aired, so that’s cool too. Read the rest of this entry

NWA World Tag Team Champions: America’s Most Wanted (1/16/2005)

For this recap, we go back to when iMPACT was just an hour-long show at 3PM on a Friday afternoon on your local Fox Sports Network. Good times. This particular episode of iMPACT is special for two reasons: most importantly it is the final TV appearance of Chris Candido before his untimely death and there’s also a significant title change at least at the time.

This would be your first-ever all “Six Sides of Steel” show. Of course on paper, everybody in the IWC doomed it to be a terrible show before it even happened and said that it would surely kill TNA forever, but let’s not dwell on that and see how it actually turned out. Read the rest of this entry
