ECW: One Night Stand II
June 11, 2006
New York City, NY
Hammerstein Ballroom

Paul Heyman comes out to the ring to a warm welcome by the ECW fans. He pours another cup of the ECW kool-aid for anyone who will listen. ECW IS BACK! THE SHOW IS GOING TO BE JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE! He thanks the fans for all their support. Without them, none of this would be possible.

Now cue the old ECW intro video circa 2000!

Your host is Joey Styles.

ROH: A Night of Appreciation (04.2002)

ROH: A Night of Appreciation
April 27, 2002
Philadelphia, PA
Murphy Rec Center

We see the Carnage Crew (HC Loc and Tony DeVito) getting together. HC Loc is the ref who got abused by the Natural Born Sinners on the first show. All I know about Tony DeVito is the jobber work he did on WWF TV in the 1990s. Anyways, they beat up a couple of ring crew guys and laugh it up.

Elsewhere, Quiet Storm wants to stretch Brian XL because he doesn’t like him. When Brian calls Storm a beeyotch, Chris Divine asks him what his problem is. This is Ring of Honor heat, bro.

Outside the Murphy Rec Center, Christopher Street Connection (wearing Da Hit Squad t-shirts) try to take over Da Hit Squad’s duty to hype the crowd before the show. As soon as Da Hit Squad find out and catch them making out, they chase these gay dudes back to NYC. For some reason, Dan Maff starts quoting Roddy Piper lines at the CSC.

Back to the Quiet Storm situation, he goes and finds American Dragon to teach his partner one of those freaky-looking submissions. While Brian XL is still talking crap, Dragon comes up behind him and stretches him real good.

Over in the Puerto Rican locker room, Tony DeVito enters the room on Da Hit Squad and Boogalou. He threatens Boogalou and walks out.

In other places, the old man from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission appears again to give the guys some details about who will be watching them tonight. How could they possibly care less? Eddie Guerrero gets a round of applause. This will be his last night in ROH and he’s already the WWF IC champ. The old man gives Spanky a hard time for wearing headphones while he’s talking. Anyways, this is a night of appreciation for Eddie Guerrero.

Your hosts are Donnie B and Steve Corino. Read the rest of this entry

ROH: Round Robin Challenge (03.2002)

ROH: Round Robin Challenge
March 30, 2002
Philadelphia, PA
Murphy Rec Center

In the locker room, Christopher Daniels says he considers Ring of Honor as just another independent promotion. He says he should know – he’s been in every independent promotion in America. He also disses the code of honor and tells us he’s here to pin shoulders to the mat, not shake hands. Tonight, Christopher Daniels will prove to Bryan Danielson and Low-Ki that he is the best independent wrestler in the USA today. The only thing you can do about it is say your prayers.

Gotta love all the faggy dance music used here in the promos. That’s SOOO Rob Feinstein. Then everything changes to some crappy hardcore music. Riiiight.

We see Da Hit Squad again ready to hype the fans standing outside the Murphy Rec Center on Shunk Street – a couple blocks away from the ECW Arena. Yeah, the ROH fans are SO HYPE now.

Just so there’s no mistaking, here is the Code of Honor. I feel like Gary Michael Capetta should be reading this like he does the Wargames rules in WCW.

Elsewhere in the back, Quiet Storm wants to show Chris Divine how to do a crossface chickenwing. If he hurts Divine, Divine will have to take him outside and show him what it’s like. Well, Quiet Storm puts the hold nice and loose on Divine when Bryan Danielson comes walking by and REALLY shows Chris Divine how a crossface chickenwing feels. BEST IN THE WORLD~!

Your hosts are Donnie B and Steve Corino.

The Rise and Fall of ECW — Disc One

The_Rise_and_Fall_Of_ECW

The Rise and Fall of ECW — Disc One
Released by WWF: November 16, 2004

Matt’s review of The Rise and Fall of WCW inspired me to do more of a play-by-play review for the documentary instead of the three paragraphs I had previously. Sort of an abridged ECW history according to this WWE-produced release. While the WCW documentary goes only about 90 minutes, the much shorter history of ECW is given almost a whopping three hours! No justice, right, WCW fans? Read the rest of this entry
