ECW: Unreleased Vol. 2

ecw unreleased vol 2

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

IMPACT WRESTLING (09.15.11)

Impact Wrestling

Orlando, FL
The Impact Zone

(taped on 9/13/11)


The current TNA champs are as follows:
World Champion: Kurt Angle (8/7/2011)
World Tag Team Champions: Mexican America (8/18/2011)
X-Division Champion: Austin Aries (9/11/2011)
Television Champion: Eric Young (5/26/2011)
Knockouts Champion: Winter (9/11/2011)
Knockouts Tag Team Champions: Brooke Tessmacher & Tara (7/21/2011)

It’s still TNA iMPACT! to me, folks. This will be the only TNA review from 2011 that I will do, so don’t get excited, you one TNA fan there. Unless they do Sting v. Flair XXXVII! That will be the one to finally settle the score!

Now you’re probably asking yourself, “Matt, why are you doing this to yourself? You should maybe talk with my therapist. He’s really good.” Well, as a long-time fan of the Stinger and the NATCHA BOY, I thought I would recap this show just for the sake of me feeling a little complete in seeing nearly every televised match they have had with each other over the past 20-something years, which leads me to another recap coming soon of the COMPLETE Sting v. Flair collection. It’s just the one-on-one stuff, people. Let’s be realistic. But you read that correctly. It is coming soon. And I’m not doing it because their matches are really any different from each other, but just because I’m such a mark for those guys. Apparently, so are the people in TNA because this match – if we are all honest with ourselves – should not be happening on cable TV in 2011.

Your hosts are a 57 year-old wrestling nerd and his wingman: the brown gnome who wears extremely dark sunglasses indoors as if IMPACT WRESTLING’s pyro included atomic bomb testing. Read the rest of this entry
