World Champ: Shane Douglas (3/26/94)
Television Champ: Dean Malenko (11/4/94)
Tag Team Champs: Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko (2/25/95)

Recap from last week: Paul Lauria runs his mouth and 911 chokeslams him.

Lauria and his manager Jason cut the type of cheesy promo you’d hope wouldn’t come on if someone caught you watching wrestling. Read the rest of this entry

The ECW champs were:
World Champ: Shane Douglas (3/26/94)
Television Champ: Dean Malenko (11/4/94)
Tag Team Champs: Tazmaniac and Sabu (2/4/95)

Shane Douglas talks about … Well, forget what he’s talking about … He’s wearing suspenders, people! Suspenders! Something about how Flair needs to retire and Hogan is broken down and ECW has the best athletes. This thing goes on for TWENTY EIGHT MINUTES!!! Paul Heyman, what are you thinking?

ECW World Tag Team Champions: Raven & Stevie Richards (6/30/1995)

With an internet wrestling convention in town, it’s safe to say this is a sell-out show. In fact, wrestling fans may even be hanging from the rafters.

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
