ROH: The Era of Honor Begins (02.2002)

Low-Ki

ROH: The Era of Honor Begins
February 23, 2002
Philadelphia, PA
Murphy Rec Center

If the name didn’t give it away, this is the first-ever Ring of Honor show. The original idea was that ROH would take the best of the American independent wrestling scene and put them all onto a mega huge super show once a month. But it’s not going to be like all the other sportz entertainment bullcrap promotions that the mainstream companies have jammed down your throats for the past five years. ROH also refuses to give our fans the outdated insulting gimmicks that we saw from a decade ago. In fact, the wrestlers here must abide by a code of honor in order to remain in this promotion. What could go wrong, AMIRITE?

Before anything gets started, we see Da Hit Squad hyping ROH to the tour buses coming in from NYC and Boston.

Your hosts are Donnie B and Steve Corino.

ECW: Hardcore TV (Best of Fall of 1995)

ECW: Hardcore TV
The Best from the FALL of 1995

There is a TON going on in ECW in October and November 1995. Here is just a sample of what is happening. Since Gangsta’s Paradise, Raven and Stevie Richards regain the ECW tag belts, and then lose them in a three-way dance to Public Enemy. The Sandman loses the ECW world title to the unlikely hero Mikey Whipwreck. Plus, STEVE AUSTIN. Not that he’s really wrestling all that much. He’s just cutting some of the best promos of his career.
