TEN YEARS AFTER: ECW on Sci-Fi (10.31.06)

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.

TEN YEARS AFTER: WrestleMania 22

Allstate Arena

The current WWE champions are as follows:
WWE Champion: John Cena (1/29/2006)

WWE Women’s Champion: Trish Stratus (1/9/2005)
World Heavyweight Champion: Kurt Angle (1/10/2006)
WWE United States Champion: Chris Benoit (2/19/2006)
WWE Tag Team Champions: MNM (12/30/2005)
WWE Cruiserweight Champion: Gregory Helms (1/29/2006)

TEN YEARS AFTER: With WrestleMania 32 coming up tomorrow, I thought it might be cool to look at how WWE has changed with ten years of perspective and see if there are any similarities between then and now. Injuries and careers ending changed the game. In 2006, it’s Batista missing WrestleMania and Eddie Guerrero passing away in October. In 2016, it’s Seth Rollins injured and Daniel Bryan whose career was cut short. John Cena is in his first year of being *the man* in WWE and he’s REALLY getting booed by WWE fans right about now. In 2016, Roman Reigns is getting treated even worse by WWE fans than John Cena. Either way, both received big pushes and neither one of them were embraced by the audience. Triple H headlines his fourth WrestleMania here and he’s still being used to help boost the main event players to this day. A McMahon is mixed up in a match that he should have no chance (in hell) of winning. Shane McMahon is here. The Undertaker is still around. In 2006, we’re witnessing the blowoff to the best Divas feud in WWE history. The Divas title match going down this year is comparable to this level of greatness IMO. Just so many comparisons, it almost seems intentional. Read the rest of this entry

WWE: Royal Rumble 2014

RR14

WWE: Royal Rumble
January 26, 2014
Pittsburgh, PA
CONSOL Energy Center

The current WWE champs are as follows:
WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Randy Orton (12/15/2013)
WWE Intercontinental Champion: Big E Langston (11/18/2013)
WWE U.S. Champion: Dean Ambrose (5/19/2013)
WWE Tag Team Champions: The New Age Outlaws (1/26/2014)
WWE Divas Champion: AJ Lee (6/16/2013)

Not even going to bother recapping the pre-show match. In 2014, the New Age Outlaws defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust for the WWE tag titles. Yes, that happened. I don’t know why I’m surprised. I mean, it’s one thing though for something like this to have happened in 2006 when Ric Flair and Roddy Piper won the tag titles, but at least now it seems like they are putting SOME effort into the tag team scene, and then *this* happens.

Your hosts are Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry Lawler. I guess it should be noted that Ricardo Rodriguez has joined the Spanish announce table. At least we know he’s not been “future endeavored” yet. Read the rest of this entry
