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

: This was a tournament final.
: Title awarded to Douglas by forfeit when Tito Santana didn’t show up for the match.
: Douglas pinned Funk in an eight-man tag team Ultimate Jeopardy match which included Shane Douglas, Mr. Hughes and Public Enemy against Road Warrior Hawk, Kevin Sullivan, The Tazmaniac and Terry Funk. Due to a prematch stipulation, the title changed hands. Also, on August 27, 1994, Eastern Championship Wrestling was renamed Extreme Championship Wrestling once Shane Douglas denounced the NWA to break away and become their own seperate promotion.
: This was a triple-threat match which also involved Steve Austin.
: Stevie Richards substituted for Raven in a tag match that had as a stipulation that if he got pinned, Raven would lose the belt. The tag match ended up being The Sandman and Tommy Dreamer against Stevie Richards and Brian Lee.
: Shane Douglas was victorious over both Sabu and Terry Funk in this three-way elimination match.
: This was a three-way match also involving Masato Tanaka.
: Even though Tazz was working for the WWF at the time, Vince McMahon allowed him to come over to ECW and squash Mike Awesome for the ECW world title belt because of his recent signing with WCW for the fear that Mike Awesome would take the belt with him.
: This was a Double Jeopardy match also involving Justin Credible and The Sandman.
: This was a Tables, Ladders, Chairs, and Canes match also involving Justin Credible.
: On April 11, 2001, ECW shuts down and the WWF buys their assets, which makes Rhino the final REAL ECW world heavyweight champion.

ROH: Night of Champions
From a promo sent by Steve Corino while he was backstage taking a shower after a Zero-One show in Japan dated from back at the last ROH show a week earlier, he says he’s got two words for Christopher Daniels – dare me.
Meanwhile back in Philadelphia, Jody Fleisch decides not to party with Mikey Whipwreck and the Special K tonight because he’s got his big match with Low-Ki. Whipwreck demands some rock n roll from the DJ and the Special K boys cover their ears. It’s harshing their mellow!
Interview with the Prophecy: Christopher Daniels says if Doug Williams can beat him for the FWA title, then he can start shaking hands again in ROH. Xavier tells Joe that he can’t beat him because Joe couldn’t beat Low-Ki, which Xavier could in order to win the ROH title. Tonight, Joe’s just going to be X’ed out like everybody before him. Oh yeah, and they are ready for Steve Corino. Off the mic but not really, Daniels tries to talk Xavier out of defending the belt against Joe, putting him over as the hardest hitting guy he’s ever faced.
Your hosts are Ray Murrow and Chris Lovey.
