ECW 1999 - Heyman is Making Waves!

Recommended Posts

December 1998: We were having are final live show of the year in Chicago, I always made a effort to see the towns before we had shows, luckily enough I had enough time to grab a bite to eat at a restaurant I was recommended to go too. Anyway I sat down and was ready to order, until I heard a voice.

“Paul, Hey Paul Heyman”

I turned my head around to see Vince McMahon, who had only himself just come into the restaurant.

Vince: “Except seeing you here!”

“Well, were having a live show tonight and I was hoping to get something to eat.”

“Sorry, if I’m getting in the way of anything!”

“Of course not Vince, take a seat”

Not knowing how long this convosation would take, I felt I should so show Vince some decently and ask him to join me!

“Imagine what the fans would make of Paul Heyman and Vince McMahon eating lunch together” Said Vince.

“It would be a full scale riot”

We both chuckled as he went for the menu

“You know Paul, I was kind of hoping to walk into you one day”

“Why is that?”

The Waiter then approached the table ready to take are order

“I’ll have the Duck, Is it possible to get rid of all the fat from the duck?”

“I’m sure we can Sir!”

“I’ll have a glass of Water too please”

The waiter then looked at me

“Well I haven’t really had a good look, do you do Cheeseburgers?”

I had heard at this restaurant do some of the best burgers in all of the states!

“Yes Sir, and for drink?”

“Just a Coke please”

He walked off as Vince turned his full attention to me

“Cheeseburger and Coke, You should try eating some more healthier options”

“One of my workers told me about this place, he said the burgers where nice, so I guess I try one”

“I said that I hoped to run into you one day, well this is what I wanted to say… Now, you‘ll probably want to cut me off but let me finish.

ECW needs to branch out more Paul, I mean your only catering for one audience.”

I had to cut him-off, even though he told me now too.

“Vince, we don’t only have Hardcore matches, we have Lucha Libre, Technical, Japanese…”

Vince now injects himself

“ Paul, that is what I mean, Your only catering for the die-hards who love this stuff, if ECW is going to be successful then you need more entertainment that a family can enjoy! Look at my WWF. We have, Light heavyweights, Technical matches, Brawls, Hardcore matches, women’s matches. Plus we have great Storylines and Angles. Now we’re killing WCW again.

I just think that if you take into account of what I said then ECW will be bigger then that crap whole WCW. But if you don‘t change in 3 years you‘ll be out of business!”

I didn’t reply, Vince actually believed that ECW could be bigger than WCW, One of the few people who like myself believed it!

“Now, Paul You have got to play the bad guy sometimes, on your Roster I bet there is a load of deadweight right?”

“Maybe” I replied with a smile on my face

“Well Paul, Cut them, If I didn’t cut people I would still have a roster full of Outback Jack’s”

We both chuckled again, For some reason Vince seem so nicer than other meetings we had.

By this time the food had arrived and we was both set to tuck in.

“I asked for no fat, yet It is full of it!”

I bit into my cheeseburger as the taste exploded in my mouth, it really was the best burger I’ve ever had. Vince was moaning and saying things, but I was far too busy eating this delicious burger!

“Now Paul, We’re taping Raw tomorrow night, just down the road from here, if your still in town I would like for you to visit us as a guest. Just come to the arena by 6 and then we’ll sort you out!”

“Well thanks Vince, But I’ve got to travel back to Philly”

“No worries Paul”

Vince stood up and reached for his wallet. He pulled out 100 bucks

“This one is on me” He smiled and walked off.

I though that was pretty cool, I then turned my full attention to the burger!

Later that Day…

After the show, I sat all the boys down. I denied them from going home before the show had finished, this was the first time I did this, so they knew something was up.

“Hey Paul, why can’t we go home?” Said Buh Buh Ray Dudley

“Ok, I called you all here because as of next year, things are going to change. But I have to say some you won’t see these changes first hand. Big Dick, John Kronus, Sign Guy, Mustafa and Sal E. Graziano”

I could see on their faces they knew it wasn’t good news.

“I’m sorry to say I’m going to have to release you guys as of immentidate effect. I’ll pay you guys your money that I owe you as I promised.”

“Hey Paul, what about the guys you still owe money? What about me!”

I looked around, as John Kronus pushed pass me and walked through the door. It was from my World Champion Shane Douglas. By this time Sign Guy, Big Dick and Sal E all left the room. Mustafa was still sitting there though.

“I don’t owe you no money Shane”

“BULLSHIT, you promised me a pay rise when I got this belt, did I get it, did I fuck!”

“Look Shane, I pay all you guys fairly. When I get the money it goes to you”

He looked around the room and said,

“You just paid tonight’s gate to 5 worthless pieces of shit”

At this point Mustafa looked up, Shane saw this and looked a bit worried. Mustafa stood up and gave him a dirty look. He came over to me!

“Look Mr. Heyman, thanks for the chance to work with ECW Again, I hope to do business with you again one day.” He shook New Jacks hand and walked off! I though that was a sign of great respect!

Meanwhile Shane Douglas shoved his clothes into his bag and looked at me.

“You see this belt, You can shove it up your fat ass! I’m out of here!” The whole Locker room was bewildered as to what had just happened! Tommy Dreamer just looked at me like he was lost! What was I going to do now?

By now it was Saturday and we had a show to do. I was going to put parts of this show together to form are show on America One. Good news is if we keep getting some of the higher ratings on the network they might move are time slot. Obviously Shane Douglas wasn’t going to be at this show like planned and I hadn’t had any contact with him since the incident. I gave some of the bigger names the night off, guys like Taz, Sabu etc. But I still have a good mix of guys, RVD, Dreamer and The Dudleys to work from.

I get to the ECW arena and started to talk to some of the young guys putting up the ring, when my cell phone rang. It was my new phone without all the numbers already stored, so I didn’t know who this was. I answered it.

“Hello” I said

“Hey Paul, It’s me. Shane Douglas.”

“Oh”

“Yeah I’m calling to say I want to leave ECW! Look I’ll drop the belt at Guilty as Charged and then I want out! XPW promised me some work while I get in touch with WCW!”

Now I was pissed, my too most hated wrestling promotions in the world, and my former champion was going to them.

“Look, We had a disagreement, tell me what I owe you and we’ll forget the whole thing”

“No Paul, I’m sick of ECW, period and You!”

“Fuck you Shane Douglas, Fuck You!” I turned off the phone and stormed off. The guys setting up the ring were watching the whole thing, they wasn’t in the meeting when the incident happened so they didn’t know! I was surprised about it not being all over the internet, but when I cooled down I pretty much known it would be. Now I could of talked to them about it and asked to keep it a secret, but I kind of wanted for people to hear about it! If it gets on the internet is the question?

10 minutes before show time I rolled the board in. On this board had tonight’s show, If there was a star by your match for segment then you we’re going on the TV show. This would be the last time I did this, if we was going to change we would need to do TV Tapings, even if it was at the ECW Arena. Anyway it was time for the show.

ECW Hardcore TV

ecwlogsd3.jpg

The Show fades in after the opening titles with the crowd chanting EC-Dub, EC-Dub, EC-Dub! Danny Doring was already in the ring (Note: No Roadkill by his side) Balls Mahoney’s music plays in, he makes his way to the ring (Note: No Axl rotten by his side). Fans begin to sing to his song but it is turned off after he is in the ring, this cause a few boo’s from the crowd.

Balls Mahoney V Danny Doring

How would you sum up a 3 minute squash match dominated by Balls Mahoney. During the match, Balls managed to fit in his trademark Dusty Rhodes Style punches and elbow (But with a punch instead) The end came when Balls went up to the top and hit the Flying Legdrop for the 1-2-3!

Winner: Balls Mahoney

After the match, Balls Music played, the crowd finally got to sing along to the whole song, it was fully played on the TV. Balls was out in the crowd singing too!

The screen fades out for the commercial break

Skull Von Crush and Chris Chetti were in the ring ready to lock up.

Skull Von Crush V Chris Chetti

Skull Von Crush wasn’t here to mat wrestle, he was here to kick some ass. Von Crush hit Chetti with a stiff clothesline which almost took Chris Chetti’s head off. In true squash match style Von Crush was ready to end the match, PUMP HANDLE SLAM~ 1-2-3! Impressive from the big man!

Winner: Skull Von Crush

With no Commercial break the Dudley’s come out! (Note: No Big Dick or Sign Guy) Both Skull Von Crush and Chris Chetti are still in the ring. As the Dudley’s get into the ring they have a stare down with Skull Von Crush, After a while both Buh Buh Ray and D-von spilt allowing Skull Von Crush to leave, obviously wanting no part of the big man! They pick up Chris Chetti and hit the 3D on him, leaving him even more beat up!

Buh Buh takes the mic.

Buh Buh: You see that you pieces of shit (Talking to the audience) If anyone one of you try anything on with us, this poor bastard will be you.

Officials come down to help Chetti to the back.

Buh Buh: We’re the ECW Tag Team champions, we’re the best. At Guilty As Charged, We offer a open challenge to anyone for a chance at these Tag Titles! Then you’ll see we’re the…

Buh Buh stops and drops to the outside, A fan must have really pissed him and now Both Buh Buh and D-Von are in his face! They exchange some unpleasant words. Then Buh Buh pies faces the young man, The crowd is enraged. Then suddenly Tommy Dreamer’s Music hits!

Tommy rushes to the ringside, He brawls with both Dudley’s, but he is out-numbered 2 to 1. The Dudley’s throw him in the ring. D-Von goes to get a table from ringside. Meanwhile Buh Buh laying waste to Dreamer with right hands. As the Table is set up in the ring, D-Von Whips Dreamer into the ropes and they Hit the 3D right though the table. Then AC/DC’s Highway to Hell Kicks in as the ‘Giant Killer’ Spike Dudley runs to the ring with a chair in hand to chase off the Dudley’s! Neither Buh Buh Nor D-Von want any of it, As they bail to the outside and head backstage. Spike checks on Dreamer.

We fade to the final Commercial Break

We return to the letters S-I-D swirling around on the screen. Then a image of Sid Vicious is shown looking all mean and angry. Then the Words Guilty As Charged appear on the screen!

We return to Live or rather taped action with Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch making there way to the ring. Then the loudest pop comes when RVD’s Music plays though the arena, the sound of Bill Alfonso Whistle rings though everyone’s ears as RVD steps though the curtain. He walks all around the ringside slapping the fans hands, and finally steps in the ring.

Ring Announcer: This Match is for the ECW Television Title and has a 30 minute time limit. Introducing first to my right from Spring Lake, New Jersey weighting in at 225 pounds this is CHRIS CANDIDO! And in his corner TAMMY SYTCH. (They both play to the crowd.) And to my left, in corner The manager of champions, the man who plays it down the middle, BILL ALFONSO. And the Champion hailing from Battle Creak Michigan, he is Mr Pay-Per-view, The Whole F'n Show, This is ROB VAN DAM (He does the thumbs pointing stuff and then his infamous spin kick)

ECW TV Title: RVD V Chris Candido

They both feel each other out before the match really starts. Then the action really starts, both men giving 100% like they always do, a real full throttle match featuring suicide drives to the outside, quick chain wrestling, even hardcore action in the form of duelling chair shots. (Eat your heart out Balls Mahoney) After a good 15 minutes the tempo slows down and you sense the end is near, both Tammy Sytch and Bill Alfonso have yet to interfere in the match. RVD slams down Chris Candido, and goes to the top, he is signalling for the 5 star frog splash. Candido meanwhile gets up and stops RVD with a left hand. He sets up for a Super Suplex, RVD thrusts him off! And Hit’s the 5 Star Frog splash as Chris Candido lands to the mat! 1-2-3! RVD retains the title!

Winner: And Still ECW TV Champion Rob Van Dam

RVD and Bill Alfonso stay in the ring and celebrate with the fans As Hardcore TV goes off the air.

Dude, you have to spell check and grammer check these things. It was actually hard to read at some points. Past that, decent layout, good luck.

After the show had aired on America One, I got a phone call.

“Hello”

“Hi, This is Ron Kelly from America One. We want to talk to you about ECW.”

I was worried at first, but he continued talking.

“We at America One are very pleased with the ratings that Hardcore TV is getting, We want to move your show to Late Evenings is that ok?”

“Sure” I replied.

“Ok, You don’t worry about a thing, just get the shows to us by the deadline and we’ll do the rest.”

This was great, ECW was on the up. But I couldn’t help thinking that we needed to get even bigger in a TV way. I mean, this was still not going to challenge numbers set my WCW and WWF every week. We needed a primetime slot on a big network. I rang up some of my production crew and arranged to get a promo tape together. Now I have to find a good network to send it too!

I had a few things to do today though, I wanted to get a few new workers in ECW. I’ve been told two people from XPW are really making waves, Michael Modest and Christopher Daniels. I was given there number, now if I got these two then I can finally start pushing younger talent again. Maybe these guys could actually be my new Main Eventers!

Later that day…

After a few hours of arranging things I finally got the both of them to agree to join ECW, starting as earlier as the next Saturday for are Hardcore TV Taping. But Now my final goal, sorting the Shane Douglas scenario out! Now I had load of options, Tell the fans and make him out to be the bad guy (With he was) and strip him of the title, I did have the belt after all or Don’t use him until Guilty As Charged and make him drop the belt. (I had Taz and Sabu for that) or try to sort it out and keep him in ECW.

I though it over for a while, I still hadn’t decided what to do, so I went on the internet while I came up with a choice.

I checked out ECW.com, it is a pretty neat site. Joey Styles seems to be doing a great job. I went on a “Wrestling News Site” These were sites that stole other wrestling reporters news. All Mainly WCW and WWF news, one day ECW will get loads more coverage. I did notice however this headline: ‘ECW Champion Quits ECW!’ I knew it, I just knew! I clicked on it, and close down all the pop-ups, it reads like this:

ECW Champion Shane Douglas has amazing quit the company over a dispute with ECW Owner/Booker Paul Heyman. A Insider said at a meeting were other ECW workers were released Shane Douglas was unhappy at something.

More news when we get!!!

Shane Picked up the phone.

“Hello”

“Hey Shane, It’s me. Paul Heyman”

“Oh god!”

I sensed he was going to hang up the phone down so I screamed

“SHANE, Wait Don’t hang up!!!”

He replied “Look Heyman, You made it clear you wanted me to go and fuck myself so leave me alone!”

“I’m sorry Shane, please listen to me. I’m S-O-R-R-Y! Please Shane, I want you back in ECW, what ever it takes, I promise”

“Paul, give me 50 grand by Tomorrow and I’ll think about it! You owe me the money so no getting out of it!”

“Ok, 50 grand by Saturday”

“NO, 50 Grand by tomorrow”

“Look, Come to the taping on Saturday and I promise you 50 grand and your World Title belt back?”

“Ok, But I still have a WCW contract in front of me, guaranteeing me $600,000 a Year!”

“Shane, bring too the show, I think we could have something really good! Please, Do you forgive me?”

“Ok, if you get my 50 grand then we’ll forget it all! I promise”

“Great, see you Saturday”

We both hung up the phone, I could easily get 50 grand by Saturday, just no one else would get paid! Although if we get a TV deal, all these money issues will be gone…I Hope!

I faxed a load of news to Joey Styles so he could put it up on ECW.com. The News was:

At Guilty at Charged Mike Awesome returns to ECW to face foreign rival Masato Tanaka!

Also that Shane Douglas would be at the next ECW Taping to discuss the whole situation, I also made them put it in it was all going to be a shoot! But little does anyone else know, it was going to be a complete work! Like some things that people per-fess to be a shoot, it isn’t really!

ECW Hardcore TV!

The screen fades in with Paul Heyman standing in front of a banner with ECW on it.

Heyman: Ladies and gentlemen, You may have heard of a incident involving myself and Shane Douglas. Well I can confirm their was a incident, But that is put behind the both of us. Also reports of Shane Douglas leaving ECW are… NOT true. Tonight Shane Douglas will appear on the broadcast, Thank you and enjoy the show.

The Titles play

As the titles fade out, we go straight to the ring at the ECW arena where 6 men are waiting.

Ring Announcer: This match is a 6 man tag. Introducing first, from Japan, Yoshihiro Tajiri! And his partners making their ECW debut Michael Modest and Christopher Daniels!!! And their opponents From Mexico city, Mexico SUPERCRAZY! And his partners, Nova and Chris Chetti.

Tajiri/Modest/Daniels V Supercrazy/Nova/Chetti

All 6 men are known to fly and they did. As soon as the bell rang Tajiri went for his rival Supercrazy. They exchanged some amazing flying moves, until a botched move from Crazy allowed Tajiri to get the advantage. He tagged in the newcomer Michael Modest and we finally get to see what he offers. He wraps up Crazy in many holds working over his lower back. Daniels was next to get the tag and he performed a crazy senton on Supercrazy off the top rope. Daniels however let Supercrazy out of his sight to taunt the fans, this allowed Crazy to get the tag to Nova. Nova does the usual clearing house routine, as Chetti runs in to help his partner. They do a Rocker’s style double dropkick on both Daniels and Modest knocking them out the ring. Supercrazy then did his usual suicide plancha onto the outside on both Daniels and Modest. Tajiri enters the ring and pushes out Chris Chetti and hits his triple kicks on Nova. 1-2-3!

Winner: Tajiri/Modest/Daniels

As All competitors leave to the back, Chris Chetti is hot. He pushes Nova and asks what happened? But before Nova can say anything, The sound of Skull Von Crush’s music plays as he comes down to the ring. Chris Chetti bails out as Skull Von Crush attacks Nova, A ref is in the ring. Pump Handle Slam! 1-2-3 Chris Chetti is still outside just looking at Nova.

Winner: Skull Von Crush

We fade into a commercial break with Skull Von Crush celebrating.

We return with Taz standing inside a empty basketball court in New York.

Taz: Back when I made the FTW title, I designed it so Only I could have the belt. When you beat me on the 18th of December I felt, I felt so Pissed off! Now seeing you with your name taped over mine it pisses me off even more! So Sabu, at Guilty As Charged I want my belt back some way or another.

He stares into the camera, looking pretty mean!

We return with The Dudleys taking on Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten in a non-title match

In a short match, The Dudleys dominated the whole match. The finish came with the 3D on Axl Rotten for the 1-2-3.

After the match however from the back came Tommy Dreamer, all taped up from Last week’s encounter with The Dudley’s. With him is a trusty Steel Chair. He goes for both Dudley’s as they roll out the ring. They both back up to the entrance way were waiting for them is little brother Spike. He taps them both on the shoulder and does his patient Wave! As they back up to the ring, Dremaer nails D-Von with a chair, and then Buh Buh Ray. Him and Spike get in the ring.

Dreamer: D-Von, Buh Buh Ray. At Guilty As Charged, you put those Tag Belts on the line against US!

Buh Buh is screaming back saying they murder them or something along those lines.

We fade into the final commercial break.

When we return we see something we never though we would see again. ECW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Douglas walking to the ring with a clipboard. Also with him was Francine.

Shane Douglas: First of all you people still suck! (Loads of boo’s) (Then a Fuck you Douglas chants gets going) When I became the ECW World Champion I knew life was going to be different, well it has been eventful. Now I can’t deny what happened two weeks ago in Chicago. I was angry with Management over a disclosed reason!

Screw Paul Heyman!

You see this contract in my hand it’s a 3 year, 600 thousand dollars a year from WCW! (Loud Boo’s) (He gets out a pen, and signs it) There Mr Bischoff I hope your happy! (Francine is looking in disbelief)

After showing it to the fans he goes to leave the ring.

Arr.. Fuck it! (He rips up the contract) Screw WCW!

I’m ECW For LIFE!!! Now at Gulity As Charged I know a lot of people want me to defend this title will guess what? Taz, Sabu! Me V You two in a Triple Threat match for the ECW World Heavyweight title! But Also the FTW Title! In a Unifaction match!

This leads to the sound of Paul Heyman’s Music.

Heyman: Screw Heyman?, (He Chuckles) Anyway As for Gulity As Charged!

(Long Pause) DOUBLE JEOPARDY!!! (He then leaves the ring as Shane Douglas is looking bewildered)

ECW goes off the air!

After the TV taping, I got the tape from the production truck and sent it straight off to America One. I was really pleased at how the show went.

2 days later…

I just got off the phone with two of my new signings. April Hunter and Johnny Swinger. I plan on using the both of them in the FBI. Also I decide that UPN would be the network I’ll try my luck with.

Now I had a little problem. At Guilty As Charged I had the Double Jeopardy match. A Double Jeopardy match worked like this:

4 men in the ring at the same time, they would be paired up as to who they had to pin to advance. Then the person pinned would return to the back, until it’s 1 on 1 and then the winner is the unified Champion. Now Taz/Sabu/ Shane Douglas was in the match. But I wanted a big surprise!

I knew who I wanted, So I announced this over on ECW.com

Next Week on America one, Rob Van Dam will take on a mystery opponent for the right to be in the Double Jeopardy match.

Already in the Double Jeopardy match is Shane Douglas, Sabu and Taz.

ECW Hardcore TV!

The screen fades in after the opening title, with Shane Douglas with Francine in the ring.

Shane Douglas: Double Jeopardy! Double Jeopardy! What the fuck does that mean. All Week, I have been thinking to myself what Double Jeopardy means? Francine do you know what it means? (Francine shakes her head) So what did the franchise do, he got his monkey’s to research the term Double Jeopardy. (He pulls out a load of papers that are all together)

Double Jeopardy, also called "autrefois acquit" meaning "already acquitted") is a procedural defense (and, in many countries such as the United States, Canada, and India, a constitutional right) that forbids a defendant from being tried a second time for the same crime. At common law a defendant can plead autrefois acquit or autrefois convict; meaning the defendant has been acquitted or convicted of the same offence previously.

What the fuck did I just read?

The music of Taz hit’s!

Taz: Douglas, shut the fuck up you bitch (Loud Pop) You know nothing! I did “My” Research and found this:

4 men in the ring at the same time, they would be paired up as to who they had to pin to advance. Then the person pinned would return to the back, until it’s 1 on 1 and then the winner is the unified Champion.

So don’t come out here and try to be funny, cause it ain’t working! Now at Gulity As Charged I promise I’ll make you, and Sabu Tap! And if some other guys wants to get in my way? I’ll make him tap too! (He throws down the mic and leaves!)

Commercial break

We return with Sabu and Lance Strom tiein’ up!

Sabu V Lance Storm

Not much to write home about here, wasn’t really given enough time to get going. No real big spots from Sabu in this match. Almost a squash match. Sabu hit’s the Arabian Face buster for the win.

Winner: Sabu

After the match Taz comes running out of the back and from behind, chokes out Sabu! Taz stands over Sabu with a smile on his face!

The Camera goes to the locker room where Justin Credible is there

Justin Credible: You see this Singapore cane! This is a symbol of when I ran The Sandman out of ECW! Pretty much since then I’ve been over looked here in ECW, guys like Nova, Chris Chetti get more air time then me? Well I’m sick of being left on the sidelines! I’m going to make a impact, I’m going to get gold around my waste one way or another! Now that’s Just - In - Credible!

Commercial Break

We return with Balls Mahoney in a face lock applied by Steve Corino. We also see Axl Rotten and Rhino the apron! This is a tag match!

Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten V Steve Corino and Rhino

Again a simple squash match, much like last week Versus The Dudleys The Hardcore chair swinging freaks don’t get much offence in! A Easy win for Corino and Rhino after a sick GORE~ from Rhino to Axl Rotten!

Winners: Corino and Rhino

After a few ad’s for ECW products, we return with the FBI in the ring.

Guido: Hey, You people listen to me! I’m about to introduce you too the newest FBI member’s: This is Johnny Swinger ( does a hellish smile) and this is the Lovely Little Mama Lionel! ( She does a sexy ring rope pose for the crowd) (A show your tit’s chant goes around the arena)

Tracey Smothers: Now…

Then, the sound of New Jack’s music hit’s as he comes down to the ring with a trash can full of shit!

He takes out Little Guido with a iron, Down goes Tracy smothers with the ironing board! Johnny Swinger runs in and gets a high back body drop! New Jack pulls out the guitar! BAM! Only New Jack and Little Mama Lionel are left together! As she goes to run off, she slips! New Jack goes right behind her! As she gets up, New Jack makes the motion as though he is, for the better term “Dogging” Little Mama Lionel! She turns and slaps New Jack!

As New Jack rubs his face, he quickly bends down, grabs a staple Gun and staple’s Little Mama Lionel’s Head! That was Sick! As she rushes to the back New Jack stands in the ring is glory!

Final Commercial break.

We return with RVD half way though his entrance with the fans. After a good 5 more minutes he stands and wait’s in the ring.

Ring Announcer: This match is for the right to fight, in the Double Jeopardy match at Guilty As Charged. To my left with the Manager of Champions Bill Alfonso, The ECW Television Champion, This is ROB VAN DAM! And his Opponent?

After a little while the sound of some generic music plays and Steven Regal steps out he curtain to a big pop! He obviously doesn’t react to the fans and completely ignores them!

Steven Regal V Rob Van Dam for the right to fight!

The fans start a Welcome Regal chant, as Regal Grabs the mic!

Regal: Now, Shut up you dirty animals see what a true respectful gentlemen like myself can do!

Now with this only being a 1 hour time show, 7 minutes where left in the show, a few bits were cut but the important bits where still there. Regal took control of the match, but as RVD was getting ready to mount a comeback, Justin Credible comes flying out and smashes the cane on RVD’s Back! Regal hook’s in the Regal Slam, and applies the regal stretch for the win!

Winner: Steven Regal

ECW goes off the air with Justin Credible smiling at RVD.

3 days after taping Hardcore TV, I felt a little down. WWF and WCW were having some great storylines going, Vince McMahon won the Royal Rumble, who saw that coming? I wanted to run some great storylines like I Did back in 1995 and 1996. Many of my major players had gone though. Raven, Sandman, Funk, Cactus and Whipwreak were all either in WCW or the WWF. The only guy available was Terry Funk but he was a 55 year man who couldn’t still go like he did 4 years ago.

My mind was at a all time low on idea’s I usually have the whole card of are PPV mapped out weeks in advance, now 1 week away I only have a rough idea of 3 matches! For Guilty As Charged to be successful I needed to make it feel like a big time Wrestling PPV. I had network executives from UPN coming down to watch us, I need ECW to stand out from the rest.

I got out my little black book of contact’s, I rang someone I hadn’t spoken to in a long time, Bobby Eaton.

“Hey Bobby, it’s me Paul Heyman”

“Well I’m be, I haven’t heard from you in years”

“Same here Bobby, how things going?”

“Not too bad Paul, I just finishes a tour of Japan and I’m looking for work”

From his tone of voice, I realised he was waiting for me to offer him a job, Bobby Eaton at one point of a fantastic worker, but not no more. I wanted to be loyal to him but I didn’t really have nothing for him. Although he did offer something else!

“Japan, you say?”

“Yup, the land of the rising sun!”

“Well, I’ve got a PPV coming up in a week was wondering if you knew anyone interested in coming down for it?”

“Well, Umm… There is a few guys I suspose!”

“Bobby, got you give me a number to ring?”

“Sure Paul”

He gave me a number of a load of Japanese guys representative. He didn’t have to do this, but Bobby Was Bobby. Too good for his own good, I wanted to re-pay him.

“Look Bobby, I’ve been in contact with a few networks about a Prime Time show, I need some experience so if we do get it, would you like too come down and do a few dates? “

“Paul, That would be awesome thanks so much!”

We finished off the conversation talking about old times, he was still such a nice man.

I rang the number he gave me, I knew it would cost a arm and a leg but if it helped buy-rates!

“Hello, who is this?”

“Paul Heyman from ECW”

“Oh, Mr Heyman, from ECW! What can we do for you?”

“I’ve got a PPV net week and was wondering if you had any available talent to come and work the date?”

“Ok, let me look?”

After a good 25 minutes he returns

“Mr Heyman we have one worker available and willing to work this date!”

“Who?”

“His name is Mitsuhara Misawa , would you like to confirm this?”

This guy was puro legend!

“Sure, how much?”

“300 thousand of your American Dollars!”

Damn, that was a bit high!

“Hmm, Ok then!”

I had just confirmed a Puro Legend for the PPV! Misawa V who? After a little while I knew what match I wanted to see, Misawa V Lance Strom! I faxed the details over to Joey Styles for ECW.com.

ECW.com

We at ECW are pleased to announce that Puro Legend Mitsuhara Misawa will be apart of Guilty as Charged. Misawa will face Lance Storm in a special Attraction match. This match is sure to be incredible.

They stare into the camera!

We go back with Steven Regal and Shane Douglas ready to take on Taz and his Partner Sabu!

A basic tag match but you could see the tension between Taz and Sabu between each tag! The end comes when Sabu misses a move on Regal, and Taz blasts Sabu with a right hand. Then Taz walks out on his partner! Regal Stretch on Sabu! Sabu TAPS!

Winners: Regal and Douglas!

I arrived at the arena were we were holding the PPV tonight Guilty As Charged. It was still completely empty. I mean the ring crew hadn’t finished putting up the ring, all the chairs wasn’t put out! The show was going to start in about 5 hours! Almost 50% of the crowd are already outside! Now the pre-PPV nervous really kicked in!

Although we had a great card, I was scared that the network executives wouldn’t enjoy it! If they did how ever, then hopefully we will get the 2 hour Primetime slot they have up for grabs.

The heard a loud roar from outside, as I rushed to a window I could see over the crowd’s of people that it was Taz making his way into the arena. When he came in the first thing he said to me was;

“What the fuck” He looked towards the ring,

“Where’s the fucking ring Paul?”

“Well, Taz those House of Hardcore kids your training, aren’t doing a very good job!”

“Fuck that, watch this!”

I’ve never seen Taz move so fast, he knew where they was and about 5 minutes later all 15 of them came out to the ring like they had just been told off my a headmaster.

“There!” said Taz.

2 hours later and the arena was finally set up. Especially the little part I requested to be prepared for something later in the show! The nervous had pretty much all gone, all the boys were in the back, they were pumped for the show! The crowd began to file in, even though they would have to wait 3 hours until the live PPV began, they sounded as though they were pumped!

2 hours and 50 minutes later.

All the House of Hardcore kids finished off there little matches, as the pre-show was about to begin.

The sound of Francine’s music played and she came down to the ring.

Francine: Is everybody ready for ECW Guilty As Charged LIVE ON PPV? (Huge Pop) Oh, I mean Are you ready for Shane Douglas retaining his World Title? (Boo’s)

Then a voice was heard, it was Dawn Maire

Marie: Francine, you gutter slut! Move out of the ring, because for the first time, you’ve got more shit coming out of your mouth then going in! (Loads of Ohhhhhh’s!)

As she enters the ring, Francine pouches on her! CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT! As the roll around the ring, the crowd are going wild! Security comes down to break them up as they leave to the back! ECW Guilty As Charged was about to begin!

The ECW Title’s fade in!

As they fade out, we return with Tajiri in the ring smiling with Cyrus, then the sound of Supercrazy’s music plays! We have a match!

Supercrazy V Tajiri

Tajiri goes straight off his famous kicks on Supercrazy, But crazy dodges every single one of them, except one that lands right on the side of his head. Tajiri picks up Crazy and places him in the corner. More martial arts kicks to Crazy! Tajiri locks in a weird looking arm hold on Crazy, Crazy soon spins Tajiri out of this and out of the ring. Crazy sees Tajiri re-grouping, so goes off a suicide plancha and hits it! The crowd are going wild!

Styles gives Cyrus a dirty look!

Lance Strom comes out without Dawn Marie who was involved in that Catfight during the pre-show with Francine. Then the sound of some generic Japanese music plays as Mitsuahra Misawa gets a humongous pop! Fans begin to throw streamers into the ring.

Then the sound of Chris Candido’s music plays as he comes to the ring with Tammy Sytch! Then the sound of Jerry Lynn’s music plays. As they get ready to go, the sound of a huge pop goes around the arena as Sid steps out of the curtain in a black and white striped shirt! He says ring the bell! Who is going to argue with him! The Original Ref is not moving out of the ring so what does Sid do? POWERBOMB~

They pound away on Jerry Lynn, But then the crowd goes wild as Sid comes back out again! Jack Victory is pushed into Sid’s path as Steve Corino and Rhino roll out of the ring, POWERBOMB ~. Corino and Rhino run down the entrance way to get away from Sid.

A Video then plays of Spike Dudley and Tommy Dreamer’s battles against The Dudleyz! Paul Heyman is doing the voice over.

The Crowd start a “Holy Shit” Chant. Awesome rolls back into the ring, while the ref checks on Masato Tanaka.

Awesome sees this and hit’s a awkward Awesome bomb! 1-2-3! It’s over!

Hey, personally I wasn't real able to check out much of ECW during this time period so any feedback I'm leaving is based purely on the booking and presentation. As far as the former is concerned I was pleasantly surprised. Forgive me if I'm showing my ignorance but Sid in ECW could be a nice touch and bringing in Regal could be a smart move if he's able to put on some technical displays with Douglas and possibly Taz? I liked Tazz being given the title as it sets up a nice feud with either Douglas or Tazz, either of which would go down well. I'm slightly concerned by RVD squashing Credible though. As far as I can tell, Heyman was high on Credible and even had him go over the Great Sasuke to legitimate his reign as champion. It's an interesting choice which sets up a face turn which I could deal with.

Biggest problem I have is with Misawa coming in. I'm not against it in principal but would have ECW have been able to throw out 300 grand on a single match. I like that you used it to put Storm over though. Push Lance Storm. They guy is a serious talent and could really do well I think.

Yeah, overall I've been enjoying reading this, although as I say, my knowledge of the time is pretty sketchy. I hope you continue with it because I think you've got some good idea :)

Hey, personally I wasn't real able to check out much of ECW during this time period so any feedback I'm leaving is based purely on the booking and presentation. As far as the former is concerned I was pleasantly surprised. Forgive me if I'm showing my ignorance but Sid in ECW could be a nice touch and bringing in Regal could be a smart move if he's able to put on some technical displays with Douglas and possibly Taz? I liked Tazz being given the title as it sets up a nice feud with either Douglas or Tazz, either of which would go down well. I'm slightly concerned by RVD squashing Credible though. As far as I can tell, Heyman was high on Credible and even had him go over the Great Sasuke to legitimate his reign as champion. It's an interesting choice which sets up a face turn which I could deal with.

ECW PPV news.

For those wondering if Masato Tanaka was really hurt, he suffered a bad back injury and faces up to 6 months on the sidelines. It was excepted that both him and Mike Awesome were to sign permanent deals if they had a good showing. However it looks in doubt, Masato Tanaka will or will not sign, but Mike Awesome will most probably sign.

Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten were scheduled to face Danny Doring and Roadkill live on the PPV, but for rest unknown the match never took place.

Also with the news confirming ECW going primetime on UPN, more details have been give to us minutes ago. 2 hours will be the regular amount of Time ECW will get, the only problem will be ECW might have to tone down there behaviour!

Also except to see even more new faces in ECW in the upcoming weeks. This week’s ECW Hardcore TV! Will be a re-cap show of what happened at Guilty As Charged.

UPN were really behind us, they were almost begging me to put on a PPV per month like WCW And WWF do. They even offered to fund the company as far as advertising. This was my dream! ECW was going to have a PPV a month starting in 2 weeks! (Well Except in June, but I’ll explain that in a minute) UPN also worked out a deal for ECW on UPN to air in the UK, the Bravo Channel. ECW was going global!

I decided to fax over the dates for the PPV’s to Joey Styles. I also made him say the price, I made them cheaper than WWF’s and WCW’s for two reason’s! Competition, and are fans can enjoy it for less then what they pay for every two months.

ECW on UPN

ECW.gif

The show starts with the crowd chanting EC-Dub, EC-Dub! As the brand new ECW titles kick in!

Title’s fade out!

Joey Styles: Welcome to ECW on UPN! Tonight the fall out from Guilty As Charged plus Extreme Action from the pioneers of extreme, This is ECW!

The sound of Christopher Daniels Plays, as he makes his second appearance on ECW TV. He is followed by The insane luhador Supercrazy!

Christopher Daniels V Supercrazy

This was a incredible match. Both men gave 100% pretty much like they always do. High flying, insane stuff from both men. The finish came when Supercrazy slipped on the second rope and walked straight in the angle wing’s! After the match the fans gave both men a standing ovation.

Winner: Christopher Daniels

We go to the back where Justin Credible is walking down the corridor.

“Hey” said a voice, It was Francine

Francine: I see your without a manager now!

Credible: Yup!

Francine: Well, I’m free baby!

Credible: What about Shane Douglas?

Francine: Screw him!

They walk off into the sunset together! Or the corridor rather!

The sound of SURVIVE IF I LET YOU, brings a huge pop. As Taz steps out into the arena. With walks towards and the ring and soaks in the noise from the crowd.

Taz: So this is ECW on UPN! You can’t have a grade A show without the ECW World Champion (He lefts the belt in the air) Fairness to Regal, Douglas and Sabu you put up a good fight! But it won’t good enough to beat the Human Suplexing Machine TAZ!

I’m ready to be your World Champion and face all comers… This leads to the sound of Sabu’s music. Both Sabu and Bill Alfonso.

Alfonso: Taz, Sabu deserves his World Title shot and you know it!

Taz: You want me Sabu! Do you people want to see it?

Sabu gets in Taz’s Face!

Taz: Your on! Wrestlepalooza! Me V You, one on one! BEAT ME IF YOU CAN, SURVIVE IF I LET YOU!

Taz exit’s the ring, as he fade into the commercial break.

We return with a old face coming down the entrance ramp! It was Simon Diamond

Diamond: You people never change, you still smell like in-bred, unemployed hillbillies! (He steps into the ring) Tonight is the debut of my own Special Chat Show!!! (boo’s) This is better than Piper’s Pit I assure you of that. Now my Guest tonight is about as “Hardcore” as you can get! He has the face only a mother can love! He is the chair swinging freak, BALLS MAHONEY!

Balls Makes his way down to the ring!

Diamond: Now “Balls” You haven’t done much in ECW have you? You’ve jobbed out to almost every single person on this roster. Why do you suck?

Balls: First of all! Who are you? (Loud cheers!) And Second, You Suck!

Diamond: I’m Simon Diamond, the future of this company!

Balls: Look pretty boy! I’m Balls to the wall, I bet you can’t even swing a chair!

Diamond: I can, watch this!

He grabs the chair and swings for Balls! Balls ducks

Balls: What kind of swing was that, You pussy!

Diamond then cracks the mic on Balls Jaw, and rolls to the outside and up the ramp.

Joey Styles: The Arrogates of Simon Diamond. But up next is the NEW, ECW Tag Team champions Tommy Dreamer and Spike Dudley is action.

A video airs hyping the PPV Wrestlepalooza. When we return the FBI Johnny Swinger and Tracey Smothers are in the ring (Little Mama Lionel is still out after the attack from New Jack) Then the sound of Tommy Dreamer’s music plays as he and the Giant Killer Spike Dudley make there way out for the match!

Tommy Dreamer and Spike Dudley V FBI

A nice and easy match for the new ECW Tag Team champions, Spike and Tommy used great double teaming moves to put away the team of FBI. The finish came from the Dudley Dog on Johnny Swinger, no kicks out of that.

Winners: Tommy Dreamer and Spike Dudley

But wait, it’s Buh Buh Ray and D-Von coming running down from the back. But Tommy Dremaer grabs a chair, and the Dudley’s re-think about attacking The New ECW Tag Team champions.

We go to a dressing room where Michael Modest is starring into a mirror!

Modest: God! Just look at me! I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO HOT! My Arms are huge, my body is ripped! I’m ECW’s most beautiful wrestler, call me Mr. Modest!

We fade into another Commercial Break

We return with Rhino and New Jack already fighting around the ringside!

Rhino V New Jack

New Jack used almost everything he can find to try and put down the man beast. Rhino however was too tough to be put down and over came it all, and hit a viscous GORE! On New Jack! 1-2-3 it’s over

Winner: Rhino

From the back comes running Little Guido with a staple gun, He nails New Jack with it! He screams! “That’s for Mama! That’s for Mama!” And then leaves!

We go to the back where Tammy Sytch is with Chris Candido

Sytch: Sid, you big jacked up Bully! You screwed Chris Candido out of beating Jerry Lynn. ARRRRRRR!!!!

Candido: Tammy, calm down. Sid, Me and You are going one on one tonight in the very first Main Event on ECW on UPN. Yes it’s a honour, but beating you will be a pleasure!

We fade into a commercial break.

We return with RVD in the ring alone.

RVD: ECW on UPN! Wooooooo! Mr Friday Night (Loud pop) is here and…

Tajiri makes his way down to the ring!

RVD: Hey dude, what do you want? Oh, wait you can’t speak English!

Tajiri points to the Title around RVD’s waist!

RVD: Oh you want a shot at this! Sure, I’m Rob-Van-Dam! And…

Tajiri cuts him off with a kick to the leg, and a vicious one to the head. Tajiri grabs a chair from outside, and places in on RVD’s Ankle. RVD is almost knocked out from those kicks from Tajiri. NO! He comes down from the top rope and crashes onto RVD’s Ankle! He may have broken his ankle! RVD rolls around in pain, as Tajiri holds up the TV title and walks off!

We go to a darkened room where Shane Douglas is sitting

Douglas: Taz, You won the ECW World Heavyweight title from me at Guilty As Charged! And made me re-think about myself. Am I still the Franchise I think I’ am, Can I still beat anyone in the world? What can I do? So! I’m going to take some time off! Yup, That is what I need! And when I come back, Taz I’m coming for that World Title!

We return from ad’s for ECW Wrestlepalooza on the 14th of February with Sid and Candido ready to fight!

Chris Candido V Sid

The match itself was a disappointment as Chris Candido except dodging Sid every time Sid came to lock up! When Sid finally got his hands on Candido, He hit Candido with one right hand and it knocked him out! But from the back came running Lance Storm, he nails Sid with a Super kick with only phased the big man. Tammy Stych give Strom a chair and Bam! Sid was down, Lancee Strom dragged Candido on top of Sid! 1-2-3! Sid got screwed!

Winner: Chris Candido

ECW on UPN goes off the air with Lance Strom holding up Chris Candido!

I would've put Dreamer's title win at the end of the card, or atleast sell it alot bigger than what you did here. Infact, if anything as an ECW fan, Taz's title win wouldn't work here because of Dreamer's win. It'd be over kill, and heatless. You have to understand, Dreamer's gimmick was that he NEVER held any ECW titles since ECW became extreme, (He did hold an Eastern tag title) it added to the drama of his persona, hense why Raven showing up on the first TNN show and winning the tag gold with Dreamer was so dynamic. Now Dreamer had FINALLY won his gold, and RAVEN was the reason for it.

Other than that, good stuff... gotta agree with Credible's quick job... and babyface push? Please don't go there, the entire appeal to PJ was that he was just an arrogant prick, take that way from him and he's just Aldo.

ECW's debut on UPN got them a high 5.02. Many in ECW and UPN are extermely pleased with this.

Fans of ECW Hardcore TV! This show will not, we repeat Not have original matches on it no more, UPN decided that they want exclusive rights to original ECW matches and segments, so until the contact runs out, ECW Hardcore TV! Will only feature Re-Caps of PPV's and ECW on UPN.

Also many in ECW are excepting new faces almost every week, with a Prime-time show ECW management feels the need for some new or old blood to join the roster. Simon Diamond re-joined ECW after touring Japan.

Injury Report: Steve Corino suffered a strained Tricep at a ECW live event, he is excpeted to return in April.

I have been reading this diary from the start and decided to drop some feedback.

The backstage segments are ok, a little unrealistic but they work ok for what your trying to achieve.

One problem I have is the way your using Sid, it's not that I particularly like the guy but his fee was so huge that the money wouldn't be wasted on using him as a ref and I doubt he would job to Chris Candido

The show on UPN is good, hopefully will lead to more angles etc

I like how you put Storm over, i hope he gets a decent push as he has always been one of my favourites.

I also think you should use Simon Diamond more, and maybe give his talk show a name, pretty good so far but there is always room for Improvement
