Extreme Championship Wrestling 1999

No Minors, No Exceptions!

Extreme Championship Wrestling, the promotion that opened the doors for the more cutting edge type of entertainment; entertainment which was craved via the modern day professional wrestling fans. The two big companies in North America, World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation, were getting stale. The product they offered wasn’t the same, the matches were your typical big man brawls and the entertainment was lacklustre – something else was needed and something else is what the fans got.

The controversy of perhaps the most influential wrestling promotion of all time began in 1994 when Shane Douglas threw down the historic National Wrestling Alliance World Championship and told the world of professional wrestling that he didn’t want to be the champion of a dead promotion, he then proclaimed himself the new Extreme Championship Wrestling world heavyweight champion.

Over the years ECW went on to create some of the biggest names in professional wrestling, names such as Raven, “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, Taz, Sabu, Rob Van Dam and a whole lot more, paving the way for more athletic match ups containing some of the best foreign superstars, luchre libre’s to Japanese Martial Arts experts – ECW had it all.

Towards the end of 1998 we saw Extreme Championship Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas engage in a bitter rivalry with the “Most Homocidal, Genocidal and Suicidal” superstar in ECW Sabu! The two battled it out in and out of arena’s, with Douglas wanting to keep his title and with Sabu, along with the “Manager of Champions” Bill Alfonso, wanting to gain the prestigious championship; but it wasn’t to be as Douglas called upon a man named Taz to take out his problem. Taz owed Shane three receipts, three receipts at the hands of Sabu. Taz paid his due and took out Sabu, taking him out of the Guilty as Charged Pay Per View main event and killing his hopes of becoming the ECW Champion, however, Taz had a surprise for the Franchise.

This is ECW’s journey from the year 1999 and onwards, would it strive to become the best in North America with it’s unique style and it’s unique fan base, or would it fall to the bigger promotions like others have in the past.

January 1999 – TV Recaps

Hardcore TV; 2nd January 1999:

Spike Dudley, Super Nova & Super Crazy defeated the Full Blooded Italians (Little Guido, Tracey Smothers & Tommy Rich)

Lance Storm along with Tammy Lynn Bytch (Dawn Marie) conducted an interview basically ripping into Jerry Lynn; who he would now be facing in singles action at Guilty as Charged because of Mikey Whipwreck’s injury.

Sid Vicious defeated John Kronus in a basic squash match.

Taz and Shane Douglas confronted each other in the ring. Shane offered Taz either a place in Shane’s stable, the Triple Threat, money or the “Head Cheerleader” Francine in return for Taz taking Sabu out of the Guilty as Charged main event, but the “Human Suplex Machine” declined and opted to take another route – Sabu’s place in the PPV Main Event.

In the show’s main event we saw Justin Credible defeat Tommy Dreamer when Terry Funk, the man who once acted as Dreamer’s father figure, returned and betrayed Dreamer – costing him the match up at the hands of Credible.

Hardcore TV; 9th January 1999

The show opened up with a confrontation between Tommy Dreamer and Terry Funk, with Funk telling Dreamer why he betrayed him but the exchange of words soon turned into a ambush as Justin Credible and his lackey Jason attacked the “Innovator of Violence” from behind, sending him down to the mat with a vicious beat-down.

ECW Television Champion Rob Van Dam defeated Skull Von Crush in a non-title match; after the match up we saw Japanese Superstar Masato Tanaka emerge from the back to attack the “Whole F’N Show”.

Super Crazy defeated Little Guido in singles action when Guido’s fellow F.B.I members interfered, only to inadvertently cost Guido the match.

Lance Storm came out to the ring and continued to berate his Guilty as Charged opponent, Jerry Lynn. Lynn soon came out and the two enemies confronted each other, with Lynn chasing Storm out of the ring.

ECW World Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas and his Guilty as Charged opponent “the Human Suplex Machine” Taz were forced to team up with each other when they took on perhaps the most brutal and dominant tag team in ECW history the Dudley Boys. Shane tried to attack Taz during the match up, but it didn’t pay off as the Human Suplex Machine took Shane out and then went on to destroy both of the Dudley Boys, gaining the victory for himself and sending a message to The Franchise.

Hardcore TV; 16th January 1999

Steve Corino & Rhino teamed up to win a three way tag match, enabling the team to a tag team title shot on the following weeks Hardcore TV.

“The Franchise” Shane Douglas conducted an interview which was aimed towards Taz, basically it was for the sole purpose of hyping up the PPV main event.

Tommy Dreamer defeated Justin Credible’s lackey Jason despite Credible’s and Terry Funk’s attempts to cost the Innovator of Violence the match up in favour of their ally.

ECW Television Champion Rob Van Dam along with his manager Bill Alfonso conducted an interview from the backstage area. Van Dam informed us that he would be defending the Tag Team titles next week on his own because of Sabu’s injury; he and Alfonso then went on to Masato Tanaka whom received a verbal beating at the hands of the Whole F’N Show and the Manager of Champions.

Jerry Lynn and Super Crazy defeated Lance Storm & Yoshihiro Tajiri in tag team action.

½ of the Tag Team Champions Rob Van Dam defended the straps in singles competition against Rhino, who was also representing his partner Steve Corino. Van Dam remained strong throughout the match up, managing to fight of the “Man-Beast” and the interfering Corino but his efforts were thwarted when Masato Tanaka entered the fray, taking Van Dam out – allowing Rhino to get the victory, gaining the Tag Team championships for he and Corino.

Shane Douglas and Taz confronted each other in the centre of the ring and the confrontation soon ensued into a brawl as the show went off the air.

Hardcore TV; 30th January 1999

To kick things off we saw “Judge” Jeff Jones standing by with Sid Vicious. The two conducted an interview with Jones telling ECW that Sid Vicious was a monster and that he would destroy anybody who decided to step into the ring with him at the PPV, saying that they would be Guilty as Charged.

New Jack defeated Skull Von Crush in singles action.

Christian York defeated Roadkill.

Tommy Dreamer conducted an interview which went about hyping up his match up at Guilty as Charged with Justin Credible. Dreamer told us that he would make Justin Credible and Terry Funk pay the consequences for their actions.

We learnt that at Guilty as Charged we would be seeing a Tag Team Championship as Steve Corino and Rhino would defend their newly won straps against the team of Balls Mahoney & Axl Rotten and the F.B.I’s Tracey Smothers and Little Guido. In the main event of the show we saw Tracey Smothers come out with the victory over Axl Rotten and Steve Corino.

- Next Up: Guilty as Charged

---------------------------

I’ve decided to continue this from EWB III despite me, like a complete idiot, not saving half of the shows – so you’ll have to do with a re-cap. I have everything else saved and I will repost it gradually. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy. Remember: Feedback is ALWAYS welcome.

After the short montage we cut to the ring where Styles stands with a microphone in hand. Joey tells us that tonight is a very special night, not only will Rob Van Dam defend the Television title against 'Dastardly' Danny Doring but also, the NEW World Champion Taz will be in the house! Styles then leaves as Masato Tanaka's entrance fills the arena ahead of our opening match.</p><p><font color="#800080"><b>- <u>Masato Tanaka vs. Chris Chetti<br></u></b></font>The match starts off with a quick tie up in the centre of the ring, but Tanaka easily over-powers Chetti and backs him off into the ropes.

Chetti rolls through and into a cover position, Tanaka kicks out on the one count. The match up goes back and forth with tie ups for a while with Chetti using some aerial offence to try and take the advantage.

At ringside stand Terry Funk and Jason, accompanying Credible who takes on the 'Giant Killer' little Spike Dudley. Spike starts things off with a series of rights and lefts to Justin, knocking him back into the corner before running him and hitting him with a big dropkick! Credible falls down and Spike runs and hits him with a knee smash to the face. However, this doesn't last for long as Spike soon finds himself on the receiving end of a beating at the hands of Credible. Credible fights back, hitting Spike with a DDT from out of nowhere before taking the 'Giant Killer' down with an hard snap suplex! Credible into the cover, ...1...2..., Spike kicks out. Credible goes to the outside and is handed a steel chair via Jason, he obviously wants to make Spike suffer. He holds the chair up and lines up Spike for a chair shot, but Spike leaps to his feet and quickly dropkicks the chair into Credible's face! Credible drops the chair and falls back into the ropes, where Spike runs and up and knocks him over with a clothesline! The fans begin to chant &quot;Credible 'Funks' Jason!&quot; loudly which annoys the threesome who now stand together on the outside. Spike runs towards the ropes and leaps over like a luchadore with a Cross Body, landing on all three men, taking them all down! Spike climbs to his feet and lifts Credible up and rolls him back into the ring. Credible fights back with an elbow to the face of Spike and the match up soon ensues into a brawl.

Credible defeats Spike!<br><b>WINNER: </b>Justin Credible (In: 9:54)<br><b>OR: </b>68</p><p>After the match up, Credible remains in the ring and stomps on Spike along with Jason and Funk. After a few more moments, Funk raises Credible's arm into the air before pointing to him and mouthing the words &quot;The NEW Innovator of Violence!&quot; loudly as the fans boo loudly chanting &quot;Bullshit!&quot; at Funk and co. Some garbage heads their way as well as they exit the ring and head to the back looking smug.</p><p><font color="#800080"><b>- <u>The Most Dominant Tag Team in ECW History?<br></u></b></font>&quot;Highway to Hell&quot; by AC/DC plays and out from the back emerges perhaps the most infamous tag team in ECW history, perhaps the most dominant team to embrace the ECW ring, Buh Buh Ray and D-Von..

On the return Rob goes for a dropkick but Doring wisely steps back as Alfonso frantically blows is whistle at ringside, knowing that we could be very well seeing a new champion here tonight! Doring stomps on Rob but then Alfonso climbs onto the apron and asserts himself into the match. Doring goes face to face with Alfonso as a series of &quot;Fonzie&quot; chants break out.

After that, we return to the ring where we see Joey Styles standing in the centre with a microphone in hand. Styles welcomes us to the show before hyping up tonight's event, and informing us of a special World Championship match which would be taking place right away. Styles then took his place next to Cyrus &quot;The Virus&quot; at ringside as Taz's music hit the arena. </p><p align="left"><b><u>Taz © vs. Tracey Smothers</u> - <u>ECW World Title Match</u></b><br>Taz made his way out from the back first, and then the music of the Full Blooded Italians hit and out from the back came former NWA champion Tracey Smothers. The two men lock up in the centre of the ring to start things off, Taz overpowers Smothers and locks him in a headlock before taking him down with an hip toss of some sorts. Taz quickly pulled Smothers up, hit him with a kick to the gut before planting him with an inch perfect Taz-snap-suplex before making the quick cover attempt, only getting the two count. Smothers eventually found is way into the match and took Taz down with an hard clothesline before applying a quick arm-bar, Taz managed to counter and rolled Smothers up, getting a two count. Smothers managed to gain the advantage with a quick DDT, planting Taz hard onto the mat. Smothers rolled into the pin, ..1...2., Taz got the shoulder up. Smothers found himself in the advantage position once more with Taz stumbling around on the mat. Smothers missed a clothesline attempt and Taz made him pay with a quick over-head belly to belly suplex! Taz into the cover, ...1...2.., Smothers kicks out! The match continues. On about the five minute mark, Smothers knocked Taz down with a forearm smash before turning to the referee and then in came <b>Little Guido and Tommy Rich! </b>The two entered the ring and proceeded to stomp on Taz with the referee distracted. Taz pushed Guido down and took Rich out with a quick suplex before knocking Guido down with a reverse elbow to the forehead! <b>Smothers smugly turned around and into a traditional Taz-Plex!</b> Taz made the easy cover attempt, ...1....2.....3!

Somehow he managed to defeat me, how did he do it? Who knows.. I certainly don't, probably bias officiating or something like that.

Taz, this belt is a disgrace while it stays around your waste.. You're a thug! A Brooklyn thug, and I am a Canadian technician trained in the dungeon of the Hart's.. Along with Owen and Bret, two of the finest Canadian athletes to ever grace a pro wrestling ring.. TAZ, I WILL MAKE THEM PROUD! I WILL TAKE THE GOLD! So what do you say, at WrestlePalooza you prove that you're a man.. You put the belt on the line against me.. What do you say, Taz? '</i></p><p align="left">Taz simply stands still on the outside and nods, before mouthing the words - &quot;YOU'RE ON!&quot; loudly at Storm and that receives a monstrous pop from the ECW fans. Storm nods with a smile on his face as we cut to a brief transmission to close the segment. <b>(80)</b></p><p align="left"><u><b>Christian York vs. Jerry Lynn</b></u><br>The two start up with a tie up in the middle of the ring. Lynn knocks York down with a belly to back slam before applying a reverse chin lock in on York. Lynn then goes to work on the legs of York, hitting him with a series of stomps before trying to lock in the Boston Crab, but York somehow counters. He ends up twisting and getting out of the move. He climbs to his feet and hits Lynn with a quick spinning kick to the face, he goes for the cover, ..1...2..., Lynn just kicks out. Lynn and York tie up in the middle once more, Lynn backs York into the corner and hits him with a quick chop to the chest. York counters and tosses Lynn over the top rope and to the outside. Lynn falls back against the guardrail, York then runs and leaps over the top rope and hits Lynn with a big plancha! Both men go down to the hard outside floor, with York pounding away on Lynn! York then pulls Lynn up and rolls him back into the ring. The match up continues like this until the ending finally emerges at about the eight minute mark. Lynn hits York in the gut and goes for a Tornado DDT, but York pushes Lynn away. Lynn returns off the ropes, straight into a <b>Super Kick from York! It's all over! it's got to be! </b>York goes for the cover, ...1...2...,<b> NO! </b>Lynn just kicks out! York begins to pound the mat in frustration before quickly climbing to his feet. York measures Lynn up for another Super Kick, Lynn climbs to his feet. York launches the Super Kick, Lynn catches York's foot and kicks him in the gut. He then lifts him.. <b>CRADLE PILEDRIVER! </b>Lynn goes for the cover, ...1...2....3!

Dreamer walks down to the ring like a man on a mission, still baring the bruises from his brutal clash with Justin Credible at Guilty as Charged. Dreamer enters the ring and immediately takes a microphone before walking into the centre of the ring and beginning to speak in a calm but yet angered tone.</p><p align="left"><i><b>Dreamer: </b>' Guilty as Charged.. Justin Credible.. Jason.. Terry Funk.. I am sick and tired of their beat downs, but I keep coming back.. In fact, it helps me. With each punch, with each kick, with each Cane shot they lay on me.. I become stronger. I become more eager for revenge.. Now, I've been driven crazy. I don't want revenge.. Oh no.. I NEED REVENGE! Credible, of you've got the balls get the fuck out here now! C'mon Justin, bring Funk out here too.. The more the merrier.. C'mon you lil' bitch! '</i></p><p align="left">And he does. Out from the back emerges Justin Credible, Jason and Terry Funk. All three men walk down to the ring looking arrogant, looking over-confident. They stand on the outside for a few moments before circling the ring, with Funk standing on the outside facing Dreamer. Dreamer shakes his head at him when suddenly, Credible and Jason attack! They both slide into the ring and go right after Dreamer, but Dreamer fights Jason off with a stiff right. He turns to Credible and hammers away on him with a series of rights and left - Sending him into the corner. Jason runs and goes for a big splash, but Dreamer side-steps and Jason connects with Credible! Both men stagger out of the corner and into a double clothesline from the 'Innovator of Violence'! Dreamer then scoops Jason up and plants him with the Spicolli Driver! Jason rolls out of the ring as Credible steps forward.. KNEE TO THE GUT from Dreamer! Credible doubles over and goes down to his knees. Dreamer then begins to knee him in the face, busting him wide open. Credible is out of it, blood dripping from his forehead.<b>Dreamer pulls Credible up.. WHAM! Dreamer DDT!</b> Funk stands on the outside looking gob-smacked as Dreamer smirks at him. Dreamer gestures for Funk to come and get some, but he wisely declines as we cut to a brief transmission which concurs with ticket information about the ECW arena show at Viking Hall with WrestlePalooza! <b>(68)</b></p><p align="left"><u><b>Axl and Balls vs. The Dudley Boys<br></b></u>A pure brawl. Balls and Axl take it right to The Dudley's, nailing Buh Buh with a double clothesline. Axl scoops D-Von up and slams him down to the mat, Balls drops his legs on the throat of D-Von. Balls goes for the early cover, but D-Von kicks out with ease. The Dudley's are accompanied by the rest of the Dudley Clan, Big Dick, Sign Guy and the only non-Dudley - Joel Gertner. The Dudley's begin to gain control of the match up when Big Dick inserts himself into the action. The menacing figure clocks both of the Chair Swinging Freaks with a vicious double clothesline before hitting Axl with a powerslam! D-Von covers Axl as Big Dick leaves, but only gets the two count. Buh Buh and D-Von soon retrieve foreign objects from underneath the ring. D-Von takes a table out as well as a 2x4 block of wood. He throws it into the ring as well as the table as the fans chant &quot;We want tables&quot; loudly. Axl and Balls beat away on Buh Buh in the ring, they hit him with a double Spinebuster. Axl makes the quick cover, ...1...2.., broken up by D-Von! D-Von takes it to both of his opponent and disposes of Balls with a clothesline which sends him over the top rope. Balls falls down hard onto the hard outside floor as the two Dudley Brothers begin to beat away on Axl Rotten. They continue to just relentlessly beat on Axl with stomps and right hands with the odd left thrown in until Balls re-enters. Balls Mahoney, armed with a steel chair, enters the ring and swings at Buh Buh - Catching the big man off-guard, and knocking him down to the mat. D-Von runs and goes for a flying lariat, and connects! Knocking Balls down to the mat. D-Von begins to stomp on Balls, but he manages to find his way back onto his feet.

Funk flips the fans off to more heat before climbing into the ring and taking a microphone. He walks into the middle of the ring and starts to speak above the fans jeers.</p><p align="left"><b>Funk: </b><i>' I'm sorry to drag this situation on more Tommy Dreamer, but what you did last week was the final straw. Hell, it looks as though ma' main man Justin Credible will have ta' beat you down some more to make you realise, Tommy, to make you realise that he's the new Innovator of Violence and you're the past. Tommy, last week you attacked Jason and Justin without a single thought in your mind. You didn't think of the consequences, Tommy, and you should've. You see, Justin Credible will be comin' for you at WrestlePalooza 'cause we'll be seein' a re-match between you two so Justin can finally put your miserable carcass on the shelf once 'n for all! And I'll be at ringside to see it first hand! It'll just be a repeat of Guilty as Charged, but without you hittin' a single move on Justin Credible. Oh, it will happen To-- '</i></p><p align="left">'Man in a Box' by Alice in Chains cuts Funk off to a huge pop from the ECW faithful. Out from the back steps Tommy Dreamer, looking extremely pissed off. Dreamer storms down to the ring as Funk pleads for mercy. Dreamer slides in, Funk goes for a clothesline but Dreamer ducks the attempt and pulls Funk straight into a Dreamer DDT! WHAM! Funk lays flat on the mat as Dreamer looks down at his broken body. Dreamer throws Funk out of the ring and picks the microphone up.</p><p align="left"><b>Dreamer: </b><i>' Funk, consider our ties broken..

Rhino stormed out of the ring to a decent pop from the fans, despite him being an heel. Rhino entered the ring and charged at little Spike, but Spike moved out of the way and Rhino went into the corner. Spike ran at the corner and hit Rhino with a big splash. Spike then took Rhino by the head and ran up onto the top rope going for a Acid Drop but Rhino pulled Spike off the top rope and nailed him with a Spinning-Out Powerbomb!

Storm enters the ring and takes a microphone before walking into the middle of the ring and beginning to speak receiving the fans jeers and the usual &quot;Show us your tits chants&quot; which are obviously aimed at Dawn Marie AKA Tammy. Storm starts to speak.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm: </b><i>' Oh Canada.. Thou shall be proud! WrestlePalooza is growing closer, getting nearer, finally ECW will have a CANADIAN champion!

I pinned you, one, two, three, and somehow Lance, you've managed to worm your way into a title match when in reality, you don't deserve one. So I've got a little proposition Lance, how about we have a re-match so you can prove that you're the &quot;best wrestler in the world&quot; but lets make the stakes a little higher, the winner goes to WrestlePalooza with a World Title match on the line! What do you say, Storm?! '</i></p><p align="left">Storm nods! STORM HAS AGREED! Wait, he runs and nails Lynn with the microphone! It looks like this match is on! <b>(75)</b></p><p align="left"><u><b>Jerry Lynn vs. Lance Storm<br></b></u>Lance continues to stomp on Lynn for a few moments until lifting him up and sending him into the corner with an irish whip. Storm follows up with a turnbuckle clothesline as Lynn falls down face first to the mat. Lance goes up onto the top rope, poses but gets jeered in the process, and leaps off with a big Dropkick - Nailing Lynn in the chest! Storm crawls into the cover, ...1...2.., Lynn just kicks out. The two then exchange several holds, but Lynn manages to sweep Storm's legs, taking the advantage in this match up. Lynn kicks Storm in the back of the legs before locking in a Boston Crab! Storm reaches the ropes, but can't quite make them! He screams in agony as Lynn tightens the hold! Storm manages to crawl forward, he grabs the bottom rope! Lynn releases the hold and steps back into the centre of the ring. Storm slowly climbs to his feet clutching his lower back. Lynn goes for a Super-Lick but Storm catches his leg and spins him around before planting him with a quick DDT! Storm goes for the cover, ...1...2.., No! Lynn just kicked out, keeping his world title dreams alive! Storm pulls Lynn up to his feet, and gets a few punches to the mid-section on the way! Storm regains control with a big knee to the mid-section of Jerry Lynn. Storm then sets Lynn up and connects with a snap suplex! He rolls through and lifts Lynn into the air once more, hitting another snap suplex! Storm goes for the cover, ...1...2..., Lynn kicks out. <b>Storm appears to be getting frustrated, rather then staying composed he decides to go straight for the Straight Shooter! The Half Boston Crab! He locks it in, Lynn screams in agony and reaches out - but he can't quite reach the ropes! Jerry Lynn's dreams could be all over, right here on the 20th of February 1999! Storm keeps the hold locked in, but Lynn refuses to tap! He shakes his head as Storm tries to intensify the hold. Storm slowly climbs to his feet, giving the hold more leverage, but Lynn climbs up with him, Lynn his on one leg and has both hands down on the mat,</b> he quickly rolls through into a inside cradle, ...1....2...., NO! Lynn climbs to his feet and limps a little towards the ropes. Storm gets up looking shocked, he runs at Lynn but Lynn moves out of the way and Storm goes crashing into the turnbuckle..

Lynn lets go and quickly hits a modified neckbreaker on Storm! It could be all over, right here! Lynn goes for the cover, ...1...2..., Storm just kicks out! The two men return to their feet and brawl for quite a while, both seemingly getting more exhausted by the minute <b>when Storm, from out of nowhere, strikes with a vicious Super-Kick! </b>Lynn goes down to the mat, Storm goes for the cover, ...1....2....thre-NO! Lynn just kicked out! How did he do it?! Storm can't quite believe it as the clock ticks away, the time limit drawing ever so nearer. Storm goes for a clothesline, Lynn evades. Storm turns, and receives a kick to the mid-section. Lynn lifts Storm up.. <b>CRADLE PILEDRIVER!! CRADLE PILEDRIVER! IT'S ALL OVER RIGHT HERE! </b>Lynn falls on top of Lance Storm, covering him.. <b>DING - DING - DING!! </b>WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! Oh my..

The show opens up with the usual credits before switching to the ring where we see Joey Styles standing with a microphone in hand. Styles basically tells us that tonight would be huge, per usual. He then moves on to hyping up the nights action as in the main event we will be seeing one of the top foreign talents in ECW, Masato Tanaka, go one on one with John Kronus! Styles then talks about WrestlePalooza, he says that ECW provides the best wrestling and that on Pay Per View this Sunday you will witness a <b><font color="#008000">Wrestle-Palooza</font></b>!</p><p align="left"><u><font color="#800080"><b>Doring and Roadkill vs. Full Blooded Italians (Little Guido &amp; Tracey Smothers)<br></b></font></u>A sheer brawl from the start. Guido and Doring went to the outside as former NWA Champion Tracey Smothers took it to the 'Angry Amish' Roadkill in the ring. Smothers backed Roadkill into the corner and hit him in the gut with a stiff kick, Roadkill stumbled forward straight into another kick to the mid-section and then a quick snap suplex. Smothers quickly took the opportunity to hook the leg and go for the cover, ...1..., Roadkill kicks out. Unusually, Tommy Rich and Big Sal aren't at ringside for the F.B.I for this one, but at ringside are Doring and Guido who are beating the hell out of each other. Guido takes Doring down with a leg sweep before picking him up and throwing him head first into the steel ring post. Doring hit with a thud, and bounced off awkwardly allowing Guido the time to climb up onto the ring apron, he stood there for a few moments but was knocked off when Smothers inadvertently threw Roadkill into his partner! Guido fell off the apron, and into the arms of Danny Doring who proceeded to hit Guido with a backbreaker! In the ring, Smothers hit Roadkill with a quick snap jab before going for another suplex, however, this time Roadkill fought out of it and kicked Smothers in the gut. Smothers fell back into the corner, the Angry Amish then ran and hit a big corner splash, almost crushing Smothers! Doring entered the ring and went up onto the top rope as Roadkill picked Smothers up into a backbreaker position.. BUGGY BANG~! No! Guido intervenes, he climbs onto the ring apron and pushes Doring off the top rope and to the outside! Doring goes flying onto the steel barricade. The scrappy Italian then enters the ring as Roadkill releases Smothers, Guido runs at him and his almost beheaded with a stiff clothesline! Guido fell down to the mat and promptly rolled out of the ring and to safety as Styles sung praises for the young stallions known as Danny Doring and Roadkill, albeit calling them weird in the process. Doring re-entered the ring, taking Guido with him. Roadkill went up top and came off with a flying elbow drop, almost crushing Smothers! <b>Roadkill then scooped Guido up into a backbreaker position as Doring resumed his mandatory position up on the top rope. Doring then leapt off with a big leg drop... BUGGY BANG!! </b>Doring into the cover, ....1....2....3!! Doring and Roadkill have done it! They have defeated the F.B.I! Smothers and Guido climb to their feet in the ring, Guido pleads with Smothers in the ring for forgiveness but Smothers shakes his head.. He heads towards the ropes and looks to be heading out of the ring but Guido grabbed him via the arm and then..<br><b>WINNERS: </b>Doring and Roadkill (in 9:35)<br><b>OR: </b>60</p><p align="left"><u><font color="#800080"><b>The F.B.I lose a member?<br></b></font></u>..Out from the back emerge the duo of Tommy Rich and Big Sal E.

Rich and Graziano climb through the ropes and march up to the ring announcer, Rich takes a microphone and turns to Smothers and Guido. Rich puts his hand on Smothers' shoulder and starts to speak.</p><p align="left"><b>Rich: </b><i>' Tracey, what I saw there was disgustin'.. It made me feel sick to my stomach!

Two top athletes in Jerry Lynn and Lance Storm! The footage ends on a close up of Taz holding the World Championship over his shoulder, from last week's Hardcore Television event. </i><font color="#008000"><b>(66)</b></font></p><p align="left">We open up the show from inside the ring where Joey Styles stands holding a microphone. Styles proudly welcomes us all to the show, the second Extreme Championship Wrestling big event of the year, and best of all, it's live on Pay Per View! Styles tells the ECW fans that without their support, ECW would be nothing, and it's all because of them and that's why tonight, ECW will deliver a spectacular event where rivalries will end and new battles begin! Speaking of new battles, Styles takes position at ringside following some hype about the upcoming match between two former partners Little Guido and Tracey Smothers.</p><hr color="#008000" size="1"><p align="center"><b><font color="#008000">Former Partners Collide<br></font>Little Guido vs. Tracey Smothers</b></p><p align="left">Out from the back first emerges Little Guido to a decent reaction from the ECW fans. Guido makes his way out from the back after a fresh face turn last week on Hardcore Television. Guido enters the ring after climbing through the ropes, he looks into the crowd before turning to the ramp as the music of the Full Blooded Italians hits, and from the back emerge the trio of Tommy Rich, Big Sal E. Graziano and Guido's opponent for tonight's event, former NWA Champion, Tracey Smothers. Smothers climbs into the ring as Rich waves the Italian flag on the outside, Guido stays backed in the corner, not taking his eyes of the F.B.I members. Rich and Graziano take their positions at ringside.</p><p align="left">Smothers instantly charges at the corner, but Guido steps out of the way and Smothers goes crashing into the turnbuckle. He turns, and Guido begins to unload on his partner with a barrage of rights and lefts. Smothers tries to block the onslaught, but can't, as Guido ferociously beats away on him. Guido hits Smothers with a chop before stepping backwards out of the corner. He then delivers several kicks to Smothers, who falls down into the corner. Guido then lets go of Smothers before climbing out of the ring, he walks straight to ringside and picks up a steel chair and slides it back into the ring. Guido turns and then goes after Rich, but like a coward, Rich steps behind Big Sal. Guido re-enters the ring, and is almost beheaded with a stiff clothesline from Smothers! Smothers picks up the steel chair and lines Guido up, as the former Full Blooded Italian member crawls towards the ropes. Smothers strikes with the chair, but Guido moves out of the way and Smothers connects with the ropes! He drops the chair due to the impact and turns to Guido, who is now to his feet. Guido springs into the air and connects with a massive dropkick on Smothers, whom into the ropes. Guido then runs up and levels Smothers with a clothesline, disposing of him, knocking him over the top rope and out of the ring!</p><p align="left">Guido climbs through the ropes and onto the ring apron, he then leaps off with a big double axe-handle, and connects with Smothers, knocking him down to the floor. Guido pulls Smothers back up via the air and throws him into the specially designed stage, which is more or less a big block which is level with the highest point of the ring apron, minus the ropes. Smothers lays flat against it, and Guido begins to kick at him - showing his hatred for his former partner. Here comes Tommy Rich. Rich begins to plead with Guido, Guido turns and just looks at Rich before turning back to Smothers and hitting him with several more stomps. Rich puts his hand on Guido's shoulder, Guido spins around and in almost one motion, he hits Rich with an hard right hand, sending him down to the floor - receiving a loud pop from the Extreme Championship Wrestling faithful! Guido picks Smothers back up and rolls him back into the ring.</p><p align="left">He follows and begins to stomp on the former NWA Champion, this match up as been nothing except for a pure brawl, signifying the hatred that Guido has for his former partner. Smothers begins to plead with Guido for mercy on his knees, Guido looks down at Smothers.. Low Blow! Low blow from Tracey Smothers! Guido falls down to the mat as Smothers, like an hyena, pounces on his pray - hitting him with several rights and lefts! Smothers climbs to his feet and pulls Guido up, straight into an hard DDT! Smothers crawls into the cover, ...1...2.., Guido just kicks out. Smothers picks Guido up once more and goes for another DDT,<b> but Guido charges Smothers into the corner with a shoulder thrust, he goes to back away but Smothers keeps a hold of Guido and climbs up onto the second buckle, he then leaps off with a big Tornado DDT! </b>Smothers goes for yet another cover attempt, ...1...2...., Guido just launches his shoulder up from off the mat once more! Smothers can't believe it, he's been forced into using moves which aren't usually a part of his arsenal, and he still can't claim the victory! Smothers raises Guido up from off the mat and sets him up for a suplex, he lifts him into the air, but Guido drops behind his former partner and locks his arms around his waste, Smothers battles out with a series of elbows. He then locks Guido on a waste-lock of his own, but Guido manages to counter and push Smothers into the corner. Smothers staggers out and his met with a kick to the gut.<b> Guido then hits Smothers with a quick suplex.. He then kicks him in the back of the legs and locks in the Sicilian Shooter!

This match is on! York climbs to his feet and turns, straight into another right hand; York goes straight back down to the mat as New Jack begins to stomp on Mr 'Clean Cut'. New Jack lifts York up and throws him into the centre of the ropes which face the ramp way with an hard irish whip, that hard that York goes flying over the top rope and onto the ramp! New Jack follows his opponent onto the ramp and begins to stomp on him. New Jack picks York up and hits him in the mid-section, before setting him up for a suplex. New Jack mouths the words &quot;Yo' wan' wrasslin'? You got it!&quot; Jack then proceeds to lift York into the air, he turns and drops York off the ramp! York goes crashing down to the hard floor as Jack begins to do a little dance on the ramp as the fans chant &quot;Fuck you, York! FUCK YOU!&quot; York slowly climbs to his feet and pulls himself into the ring via using the ring apron. York slides into the ring and stumbles towards the corner, as New Jack climbs back into the ring. He runs towards the ropes and hits New Jack with a turnbuckle clothesline, he keeps a grasp on York's head and hits him with a huge bulldog!

He runs up and hits York with an hard kick to the mid-section, York rolls around the mat in agony as Jack goes to the outside to reclaim the trash can full of foreign objects.

Van Dam does his trademark spin kick as he awaits the arrival of Yoshihiro Tajiri, then the oriental music hits and out from the back comes the Japanese superstar! Tajiri walks down to the ring, looking pale. He climbs into the ring and stares down Van Dam. Rob offers Tajiri an handshake, but the Japanese Buzzsaw kicks it away, this enrages Alfonso who tries to re-enter the ring, but is blocked by the referee. Tajiri points to Alfonso to warn him, the Japanese superstar looks all fired up tonight! Van Dam and Tajiri lock up in the centre of the ring, they circle each other. Rob pushes Tajiri into the corner and hits him with a hard chop to the chest. Tajiri roars in pain, as Van Dam backs out of the corner in his usual fighting stance. Tajiri goes straight for Rob, and runs at him with a dropkick but Rob sidesteps Tajiri. Tajiri returns to his feet and sidesteps Van Dam, hitting him with a hard kick to the mid-section. Van Dam doubles over. Tajiri runs and plants him with a big neckbreaker, straight into the cover, ...1..., Rob kicks out with ease.

On the outside, Alfonso retrieves a chair and slides it into the ring, to Van Dam. Van Dam lifts the chair up and throws it at Tajiri, whom catches. Rob then goes for the Van-Daminator, but Tajiri steps away. Rob climbs to his feet and turns, <b>WHAM! WHAT A CHAIR SHOT! </b>Rob goes down to the mat, as Tajiri drops the steel chair and poses.</p><p align="left">Tajiri begins to stomp on Van Dam before lifting him up and setting him up for a German Suplex but Van Dam pushes Tajiri away, but unusually, he isn't quick enough on the rebound and ends up getting took down with a Martial Arts kick to the temple! Rob falls helplessly back into the ropes. Tajiri grins and nods before striking Rob with a hard kick to the mid-section. Tajiri then climbs onto the ropes and locks Van Dam in what Styles claims is the Tarantula! Rob screams in pain, Tajiri keeps the hold locked in as Rob screams in agony, he can't break the hold free.. But Alfonso can! Alfonso climbs onto the apron holding a chair, he swings and cracks Tajiri with it before leaping off the apron and blowing his whistle in excitement. Rob falls forwards clutching his back in pain as Tajiri lays on the mat with his hands on his head. Rob crawls towards Tajiri, and manages to cover him, ...1....2...., Tajiri just kicks out! Alfonso can't believe it! Both men slowly climb to their feet, Tajiri pulls himself up - Rob crawls towards the ropes. Alfonso climbs up onto the apron, Tajiri turns and strikes him with a vicious kick to the temple! Alfonso falls off the apron and into a heap on the outside floor.

Rob runs at Tajiri and hits him with a monkey toss, throwing him out of the corner and halfway across the ring! Rob then looks around and leaps up onto the top rope, the fans cheer loudly as Van Dam does the thumb taunts.. &quot;Rob - Van - Dam!&quot; Tajiri manages to push the referee into the ropes, Rob goes down!

Tajiri climbs onto the top rope, and leaps off, hitting Van Dam with a massive superplex! What impact! Tajiri goes for the cover, ...1....2..., NO! RVD kicks out! How the hell did he manage that? Tajiri climbs up to his feet and picks a steel chair up. Rob climbs to his knees. Tajiri puts the chair in Van Dam's face, the Whole F'n Show leans against the ropes. <b>Tajiri poses for a minute and goes for a Kick of Death but Rob ducks, he throws the chair at Tajiri, whom foolishly catches.

The fans can't help but jeer perhaps the most hated tag team in ECW history, the Dudley Boys. The duo enter the ring for the first time since proclaiming themselves a no nonsense tag team.. And then suddenly, the entrance music of Rhino and Steve Corino hits and the Tag Team champions make there way out from the back. Rhino walks down to the ring, snarling like a vicious animal while Corino takes a more careful, yet nervous, approach via walking down to the ring slowly behind the 'Man-Beast'. Rhino enters the ring as Corino waits on the outside.</p><p align="left">Rhino then takes it straight to Bubba, hitting him with a clothesline before planting D-Von with a big main event Arn Anderson-esque Spinebuster! Corino applauds his rookie-monster on the outside before entering the ring himself. Rhino picks Bubba up and throws him out of the ring, he then turns to D-Von whom is now getting pummelled in the corner via the Corino. Rhino snarls as Big Dick Dudley climbs onto the apron, Rhino charges at him.. GORE!! GORE!! GORE!! Rhino just Gored Big Dick through the ropes! The Dudley goes flying to the outside as Rhino turns back to Corino, who is now getting beat down by D-Von. D-Von grabs Corino and runs, and hits him with a big neckbreaker!

D-Von runs at Rhino and hits him with a clothesline, knocking him into the ropes. D-Von then hits Rhino with a hard right to the jaw, he falls into the corner as D-Von continues the assault.

He runs towards D-Von and hits him with a forearm to the back, Bubba turns and hits Corino with a right hand to the face. Corino falls backwards, Bubba pulls him in and hits a belly to back slam! Into the cover, ...1...2.., Corino kicks out.</p><p align="left">Rhino fights his way out from the corner, knocking D-Von back with an hard right before running through him like a steam roller with a vicious clothesline to the throat!

Bubba follows and begins to beat on Rhino on the outside. He lifts him up and throws him into the stage with impact! Rhino staggers forwards clutching his back in pain, as Bubba hits him with a kick to the gut. Bubba then lifts Rhino up and drops him neck first on the steel guard rail, using it as some kind of guillotine! Rhino falls back as Bubba hits him with a short-arm clothesline.</p><p align="left">In the ring, D-Von and Corino are engaging in a wild brawl. <b>Corino hits D-Von with a kick to the gut from nowhere before hitting him with a Fisherman's Suplex!</b> Straight into the bridge, ...1...2..., Bubba just enters the ring and manages to break the count up, that was close. On the outside, Rhino slowly climbs to his feet and staggers around to the duo of Joel and Sign Guy, who plead for mercy until Big Dick steps in front of them. Rhino doesn't back down, instead he just beats the living shit out of Big Dick Dudley! Rhino runs and levels Big Dick with a clothesline, almost beheading him before stomping the hell out of him. He turns, and sees the trouble what Corino is in as Bubba and D-Von double team him. Bubba sends Corino into the ropes.. <b>DUDLEY DEATH DROP!! 3D!! </b>Corino his out of it! The Dudley's have done it, surely! Rhino quickly enters the ring, and runs at D-Von.. <b>GORE!!</b> Rhino turns around to Bubba and receives a kick to the gut, Bubba grabs him from behind and heaves him into the air.. <b>BUBBA BOMB!

Corino and Rhino slide out of the ring as the referee hand them the Tag titles, they back off up the ramp as D-Von checks on Bubba looking pissed. Storm, Rhino and Corino all rejoice on the ramp.

After the match, Funk proclaimed Credible as the &quot;New Innovator of Violence&quot;. The hatred grew between the two, to a point where Dreamer did what many thought he would never do - attack the man that was once a father figure to him, Terry Funk.

Dreamer slowly walks down the ramp, wielding a Singapore Cane, looking very focused. He climbs through the ropes and walks towards the corner as the ring announcer introduces him. Then, Justin Credible's music hits and out comes the obnoxious rookie, the self-proclaimed 'New Innovator of Violence' along with his mentor Terry Funk. The two walk down to the ring with Funk pumping Credible up for this big match up. Credible hesitantly climbs into the ring as Funk remains on the ramp.

Funk runs back at Dreamer and leaps into the air, smashing the 'Innovator of Violence' with an hard flying lariat, knocking him down! Credible makes a quick cover attempt, ..1., Dreamer kicks out with ease. Funk and Credible, like a pair of scavengers, begin to pick a part Dreamer with several stomps to the mid-section. Dreamer rolls out of the ring to safety, showing good ring presence. Credible goes after him as Funk remains in the ring. Credible spins Dreamer around and goes to kick him in the gut, but Dreamer catches Credible's foot and reels him in - lifting him into the air in a spinebuster position, and dropping him at the other side of the barricade where a clear area as emerged thanks to the security personal.

Funk then runs at the 'Innovator of Violence' but Dreamer manages to counter via hoisting his former manager up into the air, throwing him over the top rope! Funk lands on the ring apron and nails Dreamer with a right hand.

Lynn challenged Storm to put his shot on the line, and he obliged. The two fought to a time limit draw, but who would be the challenger? After the match Taz came out from the back, he took out Lance Storm in retaliation to a cheap shot - then, Lynn struck the champion with the title belt!

Lynn walks out from the back and receives a good reaction from the fans, who appreciate him for his in-ring wrestling ability. Lynn walks down the ramp and climbs through the ropes and into the ring, he walks towards the corner and climbs up onto the top rope, getting quite a good reaction from the ECW fans. He then climbs down as the music of Lance Storm hits. Storm walks down to the ring along with the ever-lovely Dawn Marie AKA Tammy Lynn Bytch. This is Storm's second appearance of the night, as he appeared earlier on in controversial circumstances, helping Rhino and Steve Corino retain their tag team titles, although, we know that Rhino and Corino are no longer in the building so there is a very slim chance of them returning to aid Storm in this match up. In the ring, Storm and Lynn engage in a very intense stare down for a few moments, awaiting the arrival of the 'Human Suplex Machine', 'Mr F.T.W', Taz! And on queue, the Champion's music hits! Taz walks down to the ring with the black towel over his head, and with the World Title around his waste. However, he doesn't get the chance to enter the ring as both Lance Storm and Jerry Lynn rush out of the ring and go after the champion!</p><p align="left">Taz sees this and removes the towel from his head, he takes Storm down with a right hand and hits Lynn with a kick to the mid-section before hitting him with a club to the back. Taz then enters the ring and the bell rings. Storm climbs back up to his feet and re-enters the ring. He and Taz tie up in the centre, with Storm sweeping Taz's legs and locking in a variation of a single leg, leg lock. Taz gets out of the hold quickly and the two men return to their feet. Storm backs off into the ropes and runs at Taz, leaping into the air, and hitting Taz with a spinning kick to the face, knocking him down to the mat! Storm hooks the champion's leg, ...1.., Lynn comes off the top rope with a diving elbow to break the count up! Storm rolls of Taz, Lynn goes for the cover, ...1..., Taz kicks out easily. Lynn pulls Taz up, but then, Taz backs him off into the corner but it turns out to by a mistake as Lynn locks Taz's head and climbs onto the second buckle, he then leaps off, going for a Tornado DDT and hits! Taz rolls out of the ring, remember, the champion doesn't have to be pinned to lose the title!</p><p align="left">Lynn and Storm remain in the ring. Lynn climbs to his feet and goes at Storm with a forearm smash, but Storm manoeuvres out of the way out of the attack.

Lynn doubles over, Storm then grabs Lynn around the waste and hits him with a German Suplex, into a bridge, ...1....2.., Lynn kicks out. Taz awakens on the outside and re-enters the ring. Storm climbs to his feet and turns to Taz, he hits him with a kick to the gut but it isn't happening for the Canadian, as Taz effectively no sells and takes Storm down with a clothesline. Storm returns to his feet, Taz grabs him via the hair and throws him hard into the corner. Taz follows up and hits Storm with a series of body strikes. He then lifts Storm up onto the top rope, Taz then climbs up onto the second buckle and grabs Storm before leaping off with a huge superplex from the top!

All of these men want this title more than anything, and all of these men will do anything to obtain it, in Taz's case, retain it.</p><p align="left">Taz slowly climbs to his feet, shrugging off the impact of the superplex as Lynn also returns to his feet, after that German Suplex he suffered earlier on in the match up. Lynn and Taz exchange blows in the centre of the ring, Lynn falls into the ropes. Taz then viciously swings at his opponent with a right hand, but Lynn evades and pulls the ropes down - Taz goes over the top and onto the ramp. Lynn follows his opponent onto the ramp as Storm rolls to the outside of the ring. Taz climbs back up to his feet, Lynn sets Taz up for a suplex after dragging Taz back towards the ropes. Lynn lifts Taz up into the air and drops him onto the ropes, hanging him over the top! Taz screams in agony as Lynn re-enters the ring. Lynn runs back towards the ropes, Storm grabs him by the feet and sweeps his legs! Lynn goes crashing down face first onto the mat as Storm enters the ring. Taz is still hung over the ropes. Storm runs towards him, leaps into the air and hits him with a big dropkick to the back! Taz falls back down into the ring, but instead of going for the cover, <b>Storm opts to stomp Taz in the back of the legs and then lock him in a Single Leg Boston Crab!</b> Taz reaches the ropes, and manages to grab the bottom rope but Storm pulls the champion away, further away from retaining his gold.

Styles welcomes us all to the show, he continues but then is interrupted by &quot;Anti-Hardcore&quot; Christian York to the dismay of the fans.</p><p align="left"><font color="#800080"><b>Balls Mahoney</b>vs.<b> Christian York<br></b></font>York makes his way out from the back and bullies Styles out of the ring to boo's from the fans but is bullying ways don't last long as Balls Mahoney's entrance music fills the arena and out from the back emerges the 'Hardcore Icon' Balls Mahoney, however, York picks a microphone up and gestures for Balls to wait. York raises the microphone to his mouth and begins to speak.</p><p align="left"><b>York: </b><i>&quot;It's great, ain't it? I mean, last week at WrestlePalooza in the ECW arena I beat the life out of your beloved gangster, New Jack. Now, yeah, I know, New Jack has justifiable homicides to his name or some crap like that and he wouldn't think twice about killing a man.. Yeah, he's an ass.. Anyway, I beat him like a helpless sack of crap at WrestlePalooza, hell, I left him laying in the middle of the ring crying like a little bitch! Anyway, tonight I am going to continue my 'Anti-Hardcore' streak when I take on Balls Mahoney.. Balls.. Balls.. Balls. You're another shameful, or should I say, shameless, hardcore wrestler. In other words, I'm going to beat you for the 1-2-3 tonight in this very ring! So c'mon down Balls, come 'n take a taste of me, Christian York - the man you all envy!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">&quot;Fuck you, York!&quot; chants break out.</p><p align="left"><b>York: </b><i>&quot;Say what you want, it isn't gonna change the fact that you're a bunch of uneducated losers, just like all of these 'Hardcore' wrestlers here in Extreme Championship WRESTLING; you're morons.&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans begin to boo like crazy, chanting everything they can think of at Christian York. Suddenly, Balls Mahoney enters the ring and runs at York - hitting him with a clothesline to the throat. Balls then begins to hit a series of stomps on York, whom rolls towards the ropes protecting himself with his arms. York then slides to the outside as Balls follows. Balls picks York up and drives him into the steel ring barricade with an hard irish whip; York goes down. Balls looks under the ring apron and pulls out a steel chair to the delight of the fans who begin to chant &quot;Balls!&quot; at the top of their voices. <b>York slowly climbs to his feet and Balls smacks him over the head with the steel! WHAM!</b> York goes down to the floor as Balls throws the chair into the ring. Balls picks York up and throws him into the corner before following up with a turnbuckle clothesline. York staggers out of the corner, Balls picks him up and hits him with a falling powerslam! Into the cover, ...1....2.., York kicks out. Balls lifts York back up to his feet and hits a kick to the gut. York doubles over, Balls sets him up for a DDT but York counters with a massive Northern Lights Suplex! Into the bridge, ...1...2...., Balls just gets the shoulder up! York continues with the onslaught. He lifts Balls up and hits him with an hard right to the mid-section. Balls covers his chest as York steps back. York goes for a spinning kick, but Balls ducks the attack and turns around. He goes for neckbreaker but York pushes Balls away, into the ropes. Balls turns and runs back at York, who launches a superkick but Balls catches York's leg and reels him in. Balls lifts York up and nails him with a massive Spinebuster! Balls hooks the leg, ...1.....2....., York kicks out. Balls pulls York up and sets him up for a Powerbomb of sorts, but York manages to counter. He falls behind Balls and quickly rolls him up into the cover, with an handful of tights! ...1....2.....3!! Christian York steals the damn victory again! After the match up, Balls gets up looking shocked. He turns to the referee and begins to protest, <b>he turns back around.. SUPERKICK!! </b>York begins to prance around the ring arrogantly... Oh no... <b>NEW JACK!! </b>The Original Gangster runs down to the ring with a Singapore Cane in hand. York sees him and almost shits himself! He quickly slides out of the ring and retreats to the back with New Jack in hot persuit. He made one of the biggest mistakes in his life when he decided to screw with the Original Gangster.<br><b>WINNER: </b>Christian York<br><b>OR: </b>60</p><p align="left"><font color="#800080"><b>Storm Explains All<br></b></font>We return from a brief transmission as the music of Lance Storm fills the arena to jeers from the fans. Storm then makes his way out from the back along with his manager, Tammy Lynn Bytch. The two walk down to the ring, Storm climbs onto the apron and holds the ropes down as Bytch enters the ring. Storm takes a microphone and walks into the centre of the ring. The music cuts, Storm raises the microphone to his mouth.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm: </b><i>&quot;Last night.. I was screwed. I didn't get pinned, Jerry Lynn did, therefore I should have still had a chance to take the gold but no... The man who barged in on my title shot was the man who lost it, and that's disgraceful! I bet if I was American I would get another shot, but because I'm not, because I'm from lil' ol' Canada you're all discriminating against me!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans begin to boo loudly.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm: </b><i>&quot;Anyway, at WrestlePalooza I also helped some friends out. I helped two deserving, great champions in Steve Corino and Rhino.. I helped them defeat several inbred Americans! Oh yes I did. Rhino and Steve Corino are still the tag team champions.. So give 'em a warm welcome... RHINO AND STEVE CORINO, your ECW Tag Champions!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Some music hits and out from the back holding the ECW Tag Team titles emerge the duo of Rhino and Steve Corino, the rookie Tag Champions as the fans begin to boo loudly. Rhino and Corino make their way down to the ring and climb through the ropes, joining Storm in the centre. The music cuts, as the fans continue to boo.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm: </b><i>&quot;These two men deserve respect, and a lot of it. These two men are proud Canadian's, yes, Canadian's and that's why I helped them. A man has to help a fellow country man, or country men out in order to survive in this business especially when we're being discriminated against by YOU American hypocrites! But enough about you, you people quite frankly don't deserve the attention - so I'm going to turn my attention to two very deserving Canadian athletes in Steve Corino and Rhino. These two, as well as I, are the future of this company whether you like it or not - and look at them. They're the tag team champions already! They are a destructive force, and nobody can beat 'em! We are all united, we're a Canadian Connection and Rhino and Corino already have gold - but I'm going to be joining them soon. That's right! Tonight here on Hardcore Television I got a wish granted, I will go one on one with a man you idiots love.. The man who calls himself the &quot;Whole F'N Show&quot;.. Well, I've got news for you all.. And you Rob Van Dam.. I might not be the Whole F'N show but I'm just the best DAMN part of it!!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Rhino, snarling viciously, agrees with Storm - so does Corino as Storm hands the microphone to him.</p><p align="left"><b>Corino: </b><i>&quot;Absolutely, Lance. Absolutely true. You see, I'm sick and tired of being booed by you people. I am a proud Canadian, a proud Tag Team Champion but you people make it out that us Canadians should be ashamed of our heritage. Why? Why should we? After all, it seems as that all you do his boo us like a bunch of fuckin' morons as we walk down to the ring.. Ain't that right, Rhino?&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Corino smirks as Rhino takes the microphone, beaming with intensity.</p><p align="left"><b>Rhino: </b><i>&quot;You fuckin' bet!! I'm sick of this shit! I'm fuckin' sick of it!! That is why.. THAT'S WHY.. Me, Corino and Lance Fuckin' Storm are gonna dominate this company from now on! We're gonna take no prisoners and give no fuckin' mercy.. We're gonna run through this company, we started with the Dudley Boys last night and we'll carry the fuck on tonight when Lance Storm takes the TV title.. WHEN HE DEFEATS ROB VAN DAM!! You bet it's gonna happen.. Boo all you fuckin' want 'cause it ain't gonna change nothin'! NOTHIN'!!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Lance and Corino try to calm Rhino down as Bytch takes the microphone.</p><p align="left"><b>Bytch: </b><i>&quot;I might not be Canadian, but I damn wish I was...&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans begin to boo.</p><p align="left"><b>Bytch: </b><i>&quot;Look at these fine athletes, three of the best in ECW..

Sandman puts the cigarette he holds out and drops the Singapore Cane which he holds on the floor before cracking open one of his six pack of Budweiser. Dreamer looks up at him and smirks as The Sandman begins to speak.</p><p><b>Sandman: </b><i>&quot;Tommy, you alright?&quot;</i></p><p>Dreamer nods.</p><p><b>Sandman: </b><i>&quot;I had to return man, I saw what those bastards were doin' to ya..

The fans cheer in delight as RVD climbs onto the ring apron and into the ring, posing for the fans as Bill Alfonso frantically blows his whistle. Then, out from the back comes Lance Storm. Storm walks down to the ring along with Tammy, who takes her place at ringside. Storm then enters the ring and walks up to Rob, but gets a push in return. Van Dam then steps back and goes for a wheel kick, but Storm ducks and sweeps Rob's legs from underneath him and then pounces on top of him, into a cover attempt, ..1..., Van Dam kicks out with ease before springing back to his feet and returning to his fighting stance.</p><p>Van Dam then does the thumb taunts, getting a good pop from the fans as Alfonso begins to blow the whistle on the outside. Van Dam goes for a quick clothesline, but Storm ducks. Van Dam turns and gets a spinning elbow to the mid-section. Storm then connects with a big suplex and rolls into the cover, ...1...2., Van Dam easily kicks out. Lance climbs to his feet, so does Van Dam. The two lock up and begin to exchange holds, with Storm taking the advantage with a quick waste-lock, straight into belly to back slam. Storm manoeuvres around Rob and locks him in a chin lock before pulling him up and whipping him into the ropes. Storm launches a super-kick, but Van Dam rolls out of the way and leaps to life as Storm turns back around. Rob hits Storm with a series of snap jabs before sending him into the opposing ropes with a irish whip. Storm comes flying right back with a forearm smash, knocking Rob down! Storm follows up with a series of rights and lefts to the face, mounted punches. Storm then rolls off Van Dam and walks towards the corner. He climbs up onto the second buckle and waits for Van Dam, whom slowly climbs to his feet. Storm leaps off the second rope with a front dropkick, to the chest of Van Dam - whom falls back into the ropes. Storm climbs to his feet before running towards Van Dam and clotheslining him over the top rope! Storm climbs through the ropes and onto the apron. Rob falls back against the barricade, Storm then leaps off the apron with a double axe-handle and knocks Rob down on the outside. Storm picks Rob up and sends him back into the ring and follows. The two exchange blows for a while until Van Dam gains the advantage with a spinning kick, straight to Storm's jaw, knocking the Canadian down to the mat. The fans begin to cheer their hearts out as Alfonso takes a chair at ringside. Alfonso throws the steel into the ring, Rob catches it but it works against the Whole F'N Show as <b>Storm leaps into the air and hits an amazing dropkick on Rob Van Dam, knocking the chair into his face with a Van Daminator of his own!</b> Storm goes for the cover attempt, ...1...2..., Rob just kicks out! Bytch holds her head in disbelief on the outside. Slowly but surely, Rob awakens. Storm waits for him, as soon as he climbs onto all fours he receives a hard kick to the mid-section. Van Dam rolls into the ropes, Storm backs off into the ropes and returns with a leg drop, but Van Dam moves out of the way and Storm goes crashing down to the mat! Van Dam climbs to his feet and hits a dropkick on Storm, knocking him straight down to the mat! Van Dam then lifts Storm up and lifts him into the air, he holds him for a while before hitting a devastating piledriver! Rob goes for the cover, ...1....2...., Storm kicks out! How the hell did he manage that?! The fans can't believe it, nor can Alfonso as Rob puts his hands on his head in shock. Van Dam goes onto the top rope and does the thumb taunts, maybe taking a little too much time. He then leaps off, but gets caught in the air.. <b>WHAM!! SUPER-KICK!! </b>Van Dam goes down to the mat, he's out of it. There's no way he can kick out. Storm hooks the leg.. </p><p align="center">......1</p><p align="center">......2</p><p align="center"><b>THE DUDLEY BOYS!!!</b></p><p>Bubba and D-Von rush into the ring, Bubba pulls Storm off Van Dam as the referee counts the two.

NOW THAT'S PAYBACK FOR YA!! </b>The Dudley's leave with the damage done as Rob clambers to life, using the ropes for a little stability. Rob lifts the chair up which Storm brought into the ring earlier as Storm slowly stumbles to life. Storm catches the chair.. <b>VAN-DAMINATOR!</b>GOODNIGHT! The referee counts as Rob hooks the leg, with the fans cheering like crazy, ...1....2....3!!

This is shockingly pleasant. I didn't know your name, so I only stopped by when I clicked the topic on accident. Now, I'll definately continue to do so. Your format is great and easy to read through without trouble, and I enjoy the writing, despite not being your average ECW mark.

Good work.

Styles stands with a grin on his face as he holds the object close to his chest before raising it vertically to his mouth. Styles then begins to speak into the microphone, making his voice amplify throughout the arena. Styles tells us that Extreme Championship Wrestling will be huge tonight because a new main event as been set: <i>ECW World Champion</i> Taz will team up with the <i>&quot;Original Gangsta&quot; </i>New Jack to take on the team of the <i>#1 Contender</i> Jerry Lynn and <i>&quot;Anti-Hardcore&quot; </i>Christian York! Styles his about to resume but Tommy Dreamer's music hits, &quot;Man in a Box&quot; by Alice in Chains. Dreamer storms down to the ring like a man on a mission as Styles climbs out of the ring and returns to his position at the announcers table along with Cyrus.</p><p>Dreamer storms around the ring for a few moments before snatching the microphone off the ring announcer. Styles constantly puts Dreamer over as a man on the edge, a man on the brink of exploding thanks to Justin Credible, Terry Funk and Jason. Dreamer takes a microphone and stops in the centre of the ring before continuing.</p><p><b>Dreamer: </b><i>' Ya know, I got some revenge at WrestlePalooza but it didn't satisfy my rage, it goes on and I don't like that. Terry Funk, you dirty old bastard, you started this war and I'll be damned if I let you escape now; you're a coward. You're one of those guys who start something but run like a lil' bitch when the odds even, and the odds have evened old man. I've beat Jason, I've beat Credible and now I wanna beat you.. Beat you within a inch of your life! So c'mon down Terry Funk, the Hardcore Living Legend.. COME ON! '</i></p><p>Dreamer waits patiently but no one emerges, therefore frustrating the Innovator of Violence who paces around the ring. Dreamer kicks the ropes in anger before raising the microphone back to his lips.</p><p><b>Dreamer: </b><i>' I guess I'll have to come and drag you down here! '</i></p><p>Dreamer walks towards the ropes and his about to climb out but Justin Credible strikes him from behind! Jason his there too! Jason and Credible beat on Dreamer like a pair of scavengers, a vicious pair of hyena's only able to attack from behind. Dreamer goes down to his knees as Jason kicks him in the gut, sending him rolling across the ring in agony. Dreamer slowly raises from the mat as Credible steps back. Jason goes to kick Dreamer once more but Dreamer blocks the attack and springs to life, taking Dreamer out with a clothesline to the throat. Credible runs towards Dreamer, wondering straight into another explosive clothesline! Dreamer is on fire! Dreamer turns his attentions back to Jason, he lifts him up and throws him over the top rope and out of the ring.</p><p><b>Voice: </b><i>' Whoa whoa.. WHOA! Stop right there, stop right fuckin' there ya dirty lil' bastard! '</i></p><p>The camera turns around to reveal Terry Funk walking down towards the ring with a microphone in hand. Dreamer turns his attentions to Funk and tells him to &quot;C'mon!&quot; Funk shakes his head and begins to speak.</p><p><b>Funk: </b><i>' Why the hell should I do what you say? Why should I give you the satisfaction of puttin' your dirty lil' grubby paws on me, Dreamer? Why should I do that? You ain't gettin' the satisfaction, boy.

Give me one reason why I shouldn't come down here and do what you're crack-whore of a mother should've done, give ya a good beatin' ta' whip you into shape, boy, to abide the rules! But no, you're mother was too busy on one of her heroin binges to look after ya properly and your father, your poppa.. Don't let me get started on that bastard. Look at me Tommy, LOOK AT ME..

'</i></p><p>Dreamer begins to slowly climbs out of the ring, his rage consuming his body and mind by the moment. Dreamer steps halfway out of the ring, with one foot still in the ring and with one foot on the apron but suddenly, Credible and Jason strike! Credible and Jason pull Dreamer back into the ring and begin to lay into him with a barrage of rights and lefts. Funk slowly walks down to the ring and climbs through the ropes as his two henchman continue to beat away on Dreamer. Jason steps back, holding Dreamer - Jason then launches a Super-Kick but Dreamer catches his foot and hits Jason with an elbow to the face. Jason releases Dreamer, allowing the Innovator of Violence to launch a scathing attack on Credible! Dreamer runs and nearly beheads Justin with a clothesline, he then turns his attention to Funk. Funk backs off into the corner in shock as the now bloodied Dreamer advances towards him. Funk shakes his head as Dreamer confronts him in the corner. He grabs him by the throat but Jason crawls up behind Dreamer.. <b>LOW BLOW! </b>Low-Fucking-Blow! When it looks as though Dreamer his about to avenge what as happened to him, Jason and Credible are always around to stop it. Dreamer goes down. Funk then grabs Dreamer by the head and begins to knee him repeatedly in the face. Dreamer goes down to the mat in a crumpled mess as Credible and Jason lay into him with a series of boots. Funk goes to the outside and retrieves a steel chair, he drops it on the mat as Credible lifts Dreamer up.. <b>WHAM! THAT'S INCREDIBLE! RIGHT ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR! </b>What an heinous assault! Dreamer his out cold, he's out of it. Credible lifts Dreamer's limp body up once more and sets him up for another That's Incredible...

Credible releases Dreamer and gestures for The Sandman to come and get some and the Hardcore Icon does so. With a Singapore Cane in hand; The Sandman climbs onto the ring apron and enters the ring as the trio of Funk, Credible and Jason back off. Suddenly, Credible runs towards Sandman, who side-steps him. Credible turns and gets a vicious Cane shot to the skull, it breaks in half! Credible goes down to the mat with blood gushing out from his forehead. Sandman drops the Cane before running towards Jason and Funk, laying Jason out with a series of rights and lefts. Funk goes to nail Sandman with a right hand but Sandman blocks it and nails Funk with a Russian Leg Sweep! Sandman picks the steel chair up from off the mat and turns to Jason. Jason gets up.. SMACK! Chair shot to the skull! Funk quickly rolls out of the ring as Sandman picks Credible up. Sandman hits Credible over the head with the chair! Credible falls back against the ropes. Sandman then runs towards the self-proclaimed &quot;New Innovator of Violence&quot; and clotheslines him over the top rope and out of the ring as Dreamer slowly climbs to his feet. We cut to an intermission as Sandman checks on the bloodied Tommy Dreamer. <b>(70)</b></p><p><u><font color="#800080"><b>ECW Rules</b></font></u><font color="#800080"><u><b> Match<br></b></u><b>Big Dick Dudley </b>vs.<b> Rhino<br></b></font>AC/DC's &quot;Highway to Hell&quot; hits as Big Dick Dudley makes his way out from the back ahead of our opening contest. Big Dick his accompanied via D-Von, Bubba Ray, Sign Guy and Joel Gertner - the Dudley Clan. Big Dick enters the ring along with Bubba and D-Von who wait in the ring. Then, the music of Rhino hits as the fans immediately jeer loudly. Out from the back emerge the foursome of Steve Corino, Lance Storm, Tammy Lynn Bytch and Big Dick Dudley's opponent the 'Man-Beast' Rhino. The snarling, animalistic figure of Rhino enters the ring and immediately charges at all three Dudley Boys as Corino, Bytch and Storm stand on the outside with a look of shock clearly present on their faces. Rhino runs and takes Big Dick down with a clothesline before turning back to the Dudley Boys who respond via hoisting Rhino into the air, hitting him with a <b>Dudley Death Drop! </b>This one could be over with already! Suddenly, Corino and Storm burst into the ring - the duo go after the Dudley Boys and take them to the outside as Sign Guy and Joel stalk Bytch on the outside. Bytch quickly escapes up the ramp as in the ring Big Dick rises to his feet. Big Dick pulls Rhino in and sets him up for a Powerbomb but Rhino reverses with a big back body drop, sending Big Dick crashing down to the mat. Rhino falls back into the corner and begins to pound his chest in anger as Big Dick climbs to his feet. Big Dick staggers towards the ropes and Rhino sprints towards him.. <b>GORE!! GORE!! GORE!! STRAIGHT THROUGH THE FUCKING ROPES! </b>Both Rhino and Big Dick go crashing to the outside as the fans begin to chant &quot;Holy Shit&quot; loudly. After a few moments of Joey Styles questioning whether Big Dick and Rhino are still alive, the Man-Beast moves. Rhino returns to his feet as we cut to a shot of the Dudley Boys and Corino &amp; Storm fighting in the crowd with security trying to break it up. Rhino storms towards the announcers table and hijacks the wood, lifting it up and carrying it around to the other side of the ring. Rhino slides it into the ring and follows, setting it up before going back to the outside and lifting Big Dick up. Rhino climbs onto the second buckle as Big Dick staggers towards him. Rhino lifts Big Dick Dudley up.. <b>FUCK! WHAT THE FUCK?! RHINO LEAPS OFF THE BUCKLE WITH A FUCKING PILEDRIVER, THIS IS INSANE! CRACK! THROUGH THE FUCKING TABLE! HE'S JUST FUCKING KILLED BIG DICK DUDLEY!! </b>Rhino covers the broken Dudley brother as the referee counts quickly as medical assistance rushes down to the ring, ...1...2...3!</p><p><b>Winner: </b>Rhino</p><p>Rhino paces around the ring for a few moments as the EMT's get Big Dick on the stretcher as the fans chant &quot;Oh my god, you killed him! You bastard, Rhino! You bastard!&quot; We cut to a shot of security separating Corino &amp; Storm from the Dudley Boys in the crowd. Back in the ring we see Rhino strike! The Man-Beast scares the EMT's away as he lifts the stretcher up, the stretcher holds Big Dick. Big Dick's out cold, he's busted open and he can't move a muscle. This is wrong. Rhino puts the stretcher against the turnbuckle in the corner as the fans continue to boo. Styles preaches at ringside, rambling on about how wrong this attack is, and indeed it is. Nobody can condone the action of this maniac! Rhino charges towards the corner like a stampeding monster.. <b>GORE!! </b>The stretcher topples over with Big Dick in it! Big Dick his out of it, Rhino has just absolutely destroyed Big Dick Dudley! <b>(48)</b></p><p>We quickly cut to the backstage area as Rhino leaves the ring, allowing the EMT's to check on the broken behemoth whom lays motionlessly in the centre of the ring on the stretcher. Backstage, in the ECW interview area we see Rob Van Dam and Bill Alfonso standing by. Fonzie holds a microphone, Rob just stands back with his usual casual, laid back look on his face. Rob has his ECW Television championship around his waste, having survived last week's match up with Lance Storm and the Television title match at WrestlePalooza with Yoshihiro Tajiri. Alfonso begins to speak.</p><p><b>Alfonso: </b><i>' Rob, Rob, shall I tell 'em? '</i></p><p><b>RVD: </b><i>' Tell 'em what, dude? '</i></p><p><b>Alfonso: </b><i>' No, you tell 'em dadday!

Anyhow, the match up starts with the two men engaging in an elbow tie up in the centre of the ring. Tanaka overpowers Guido and sends him crashing back down to the mat with a swift push, using his size to bully Guido. Guido gets straight back up like the plucky underdog he his and runs straight into a clothesline from Tanaka. Tanaka just chuckles before hoisting Guido up into the air and hitting him with a hard scoop slam. The match up continues this way for several moments with Tanaka using a variety of moves to keep Guido down on the mat and the end almost comes when Tanaka slams Guido down hard with a big Powerslam but the Sicilian kicks out on the two count. Guido mounts a fight back with a quick eye rake, Tanaka doubles over and receives a Tornado DDT from Guido. Guido covers Tanaka quickly, ..1...2..., Tanaka's shoulder just jolts up from off the mat. Guido tries to keep on top of his opponent with a DDT but Tanaka kicks out once more. Guido goes up onto the top rope and springs off with a missile dropkick, nobodies home! Masato moves out of the way! Guido goes crashing down to the mat up, he gets up with his hands on his back and turns around -- <b>POWERSLAM! </b>Tanaka hooks the leg, Guido his out of it, ..1...2....3! A solid display their from Masato Tanaka! </p><p><b>Winner: </b>Masato Tanaka</p><p>After the match up Tanaka pulls the camera man in closely, into a sort of monologue. Tanaka points to himself and screams the words &quot;TV Title.. Rob Van Dam.. MINE!&quot; before hitting Guido with another quick stomp on his way to the back. Does this mean that Masato Tanaka his still interested in Rob Van Dam's ECW Television Championship? <b>(62)</b></p><p><font color="#800080"><u><b>ECW Rules Tag Team Match<br></b></u><b>Christian York &amp; Jerry Lynn vs. New Jack &amp; Taz<br></b></font>&quot;Smells Like Teen Spirit&quot; by Nirvana fills the arena and out from the back, wearing a white shirt and a pair of black and yellow wrestling tights emerges &quot;Anti-Hardcore&quot; Christian York. York walks down to the ring not looking too happy as the fans boo him, he removes his shirt before climbing through the ropes and taunting the fans some more. York, who now features blonde hair, mouths the words &quot;It's for your own good, morons.&quot; York pounds his chest as &quot;Scapegoat&quot; by Fear Factory hits, the music of Jerry Lynn. Lynn walks down to the ring doing the &quot;I'm taking the title&quot; gesture with his hands and waste to the dismay of the fans who are not at all liking the new persona of Jerry Lynn since his bitter rivalry with Taz began. Lynn and York seemingly avoid each other in the ring as &quot;Natural Born Killaz&quot; hits, signifying the entrance of the &quot;Original Gangsta&quot; New Jack. New Jack walks down to the ring, busting a few dance moves as he makes his way down to the ring. He waits on the outside for a few moments before quickly sliding into the ring and taking it to Jerry Lynn, hitting him with a series of rights and lefts. York attacks Jack from behind with a clubbing blow to the back. Lynn then runs towards Lynn and strikes him with a knee to the face -- &quot;Beat me if you can.. Survive.. Survive.. Survive.. If I Let'chu!&quot; TAZ! Taz walks out from the back as the arena is plunged into a moment of darkness. Taz walks down to the ring and enters, taking the towel off his head. Lynn runs towards him and receives a traditional Sambo-Tazplex! Taz then runs and nails York with a swift clothesline as New Jack slowly returns to his feet.</p><p>York stumbles to his feet, towards Taz who grabs him and hits him with a quick snap suplex. Lynn returns to his feet against the ropes, Taz then runs towards him and knocks him over the top with a clothesline before following him to the outside. Taz grabs Lynn and throws him into the ring post before following up with a forearm smash, knocking him down to the outside floor. Back in the ring we see New Jack and York exchanging blows with New Jack evidently coming out on top. New Jack hits York with an headbutt, knocking him back into the corner. Jack follows up with a turnbuckle clothesline and a quick bulldog. Jack covers York, ..1...2.., York kicks out. Back on the outside it appears as though Jerry Lynn has mounted a fight back of some sorts as we see Taz leaning against the steel guardrail with Lynn pounding away on him with rights and lefts. Taz fights back with a quick knee to the gut of Lynn. Taz then grabs Lynn and rolls him back into the ring. York fights back against New Jack, hitting him with a spinning kick to the jaw. York begins to taunt the Original Gangsta, <b>Taz grabs him from behind and slaps him in the Tazmission! York squirms, he reaches for the ropes.. Lynn breaks the hold up! Lynn grabs Taz via the head and hits him with a jumping Tornado DDT! </b>Lynn covers the Human Suplex Machine, ..1...2..., Taz kicks out. New Jack climbs to his feet and grabs Lynn from behind and plants him with a Reverse DDT! <b>New Jack turns around, WHAM! SUPER-KICK FROM YORK! </b>New Jack his out of it! York lifts the Gangsta up and goes for a Northern Lights Suplex but Jack manages to somehow get out of it - <b>he pushes York into Taz, TAZ-PLEX!!

Lynn climbs to his feet and the two men begin to stare each other down, both men stare at each other intensely as Taz picks the ECW Championship off the mat. Lynn shakes his head and arrogantly mouths the words - &quot;Living Dangerously, Taz, you're a man living dangerously - I'm taking that title because I'm the BEST ECW has to offer!&quot; And with that, Hardcore TV fades to a close. <b>(70)</b></p><p><i>Overall Show Rating -- </i><b>65</b></p>

ECW Hardcore TV

Date: 20th March 1999

Your Hosts: Joey Styles & Cyrus ‘The Virus’

“This is Extreme” echoes throughout the Southern Philadelphian bingo hall known as Viking Hall better known as the ECW arena by professional wrestling fans. After the opening montage we instantaneously switch to the ring to where the “Voice of ECW” Joey Styles stands, with a microphone in hand and a sheet of paper in the other. Styles, who is perhaps one of the best announcers in the industry today, refers to his paper before beginning to speak.

”Hello, and welcome to ECW!” Styles proclaims in his naturally high pitched voice. ”Tonight we have got a treat for you! Tonight we will be seeing a HUGE Tag Team title match as in the main event we will be seeing the champions, Canadian Connection members, Rhino and Steve Corino take on the make-shift team of the “Original Gangster” New Jack and the “Giant Killer” Little Spike Dudley!”Styles pauses for a moment, allowing the fans to let out a pop.

”Also, The Sandman will be in action since his RETURN to EC-Dubbaya when he takes on Full Blooded Italian Tracey Smothers! And also, Rob Van Dam will go one on one with another F.B.I member in Tommy Rich, but the ECW Television title will not be on the line!” A “Joey!” chant breaks out. Styles simply smirks before resuming. ”Enjoy the show, I’m sure you will because we’re Extreme Championship Wrestling and we have no minors and no exceptions!”

With that Styles interjects himself from the ring and takes his position at ringside along with the despicable Cyrus ‘The Virus’ who proclaims the fans as a bunch of “Disgusting, uneducated, troglodytes” for cheering Joey as the F.B.I anthem starts up on the loud speaker.

ECW Rules

The Sandman vs. Tracey Smothers

We start things off with a traditional ECW-style all out hardcore brawl with The Sandman in action. Smothers, who plays the gimmick of an Italian stooge, makes his way out from the back along with Sal E. Graziano who cheers his man on at ringside while The Sandman makes his way through the crowd as Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” plays to a almost deafening pop from the fans. Sandman enters the ring with his Singapore Cane, clearly not in the mood for any fun and games with the F.B.I tonight. Smothers attacks immediately after the bell, trying to wear Sandman down with a series of clubbing forearms but The Sandman stays up, he won’t go down. Smothers backs off a little bit and the mistake ends up costing him, as when he returns to his opponent he receives a kick to the gut immediately putting him on the back-peddle. Sandman moves in and knees Smothers in the face before throwing him into the corner. Sandman follows up with a turnbuckle clothesline, he then turns, and throws Smothers down to the mat while he retrieves his Singapore Cane. Smothers climbs to his feet but when he sees The Sandman holding the Cane he immediately drops to his knees to plead for mercy, but I guess this is “Arriva-Derci” as Sandman powerfully hits Smothers over the skull with the Cane! Smothers doesn’t go down, instead he looks extremely dazed. The Sandman then pulls Smothers up to his feet and holds him for a few moments as the fans chant “You fucked up!” at Smothers. White Russian Leg Sweep! Sandman has just disposed of Tracey Smothers with the White Russian Leg Sweep! It’s got to be over! Referee Jim Mollineaux dives down onto the mat and makes the count as Sandman nonchalantly covers his opponent; …1…2…3! The Sandman picks up an impressive victory!

Sandman proceeds to celebrate in the ring as “Enter Sandman” flares up to the delight of the fans. Sandman raises the cane into the air as Sal E reaches into the ring, pulling his partner in crime out after the beating he received. Sandman continues to celebrate until the threesome of Justin Credible, Terry Funk & Jason arrive to spoil the party. Credible enters the ring first, but Sandman turns and sees him but he foolishly keeps his focus on Credible, allowing the other two scavengers to attack from behind like hyena’s picking away on their pray. Sandman tries to fight the three men off, and does so successfully until the numbers game catches up with him. Credible leaps into the air and knocks Sandman down with a wheel kick to the face! With Sandman down the trio continually stomp on him. Credible picks up the cane as Funk and Jason lift him up to his knees. Then Credible swings back with the Cane, almost like he is using it as a baseball bat in a game of baseball, before swinging and connected with Sandman’s skull which substitutes the ball. Sandman naturally goes down to the mat like a sack of bricks as the fans jeer at their fullest. Joey Styles condemns the three men as “vicious hyena’s!” as Cyrus applauds them for their actions, calling them smart. The Sandman his down and out in the centre of the ring, no man deserves this punishment.

WINNER - The Sandman

OR – 57

(Bookers Notes: Simply what it was expected to be, a match designated to put The Sandman over giving him so credibility before the up-and-coming Living Dangerously Pay Per View while, at the same time, to build up the feud giving it a more combustible feel and putting over the pack of heel’s like a pack of hyena’s looking for their pray; weakening their opponents to get a natural advantage)

Straight after the match up we instantly switch backstage as Styles informs us of an altercation, however, when he reach our area it is too late as we see wrestlers and medics gathering around the body of ECW World Champion Taz who lays against the wall in a crumpled heap leaving a case of Who dunnit? for the ECW locker room, and I'm sure when Taz finds out their will be hell to pay for the attacker. Anyway, medics end up lifting Taz up onto a stretcher and carrying him off down the corridor as the ECW wrestlers are left pondering the attacker, or, pulling the invisible veil over themselves and disguising themselves as innocent bystanders who didn’t see a thing. (OR: 85)

Non-Title Match; ECW Rules

Rob Van Dam vs. Tommy Rich

Rob Van Dam starts things off with a few arrogant taunts to the former NWA World Champion in Tommy Rich. Anyway, the two finally lock up and we see the younger of the two, Rob Van Dam, take control with a swift headlock. Rich ends up reversing via sending his opponent into the ropes with an irish whip but Van Dam comes right back and knocks Rich down with a forearm smash. Van Dam continues the assault via throwing Rich over the top rope and out of the ring. Big Sal helps Rich up on the outside but RVD goes up top and leaps off the top rope with a big cross-body, knocking both Sal and Rich down. Van Dam pulls Rich up and throws him back into the ring as Bill Alfonso retrieves a steel chair from ringside. Van Dam misses with a spinning kick which buys Rich some time. Rich fights back and ends up hitting Van Dam with a big backdrop. Van Dam gets up clutching the back of his head as Rich continues the assault. However, albeit the stomps, Van Dam manages to pull himself up. Rich lifts the chair up and throws it at Van Dam, but Van Dam catches and throws it right back to the F.B.I leader who catches. Van Dam then launches a spinning kick, but Rich evades. Rich turns around and ends up getting a Super-Kick to the jaw from the ”Whole F’N Show”! Van Dam does the thumb taunts before going up top to the delight of the fans. Van Dam then springs off the top rope with an inch perfect Five Star Frog Splash, connecting with Tommy Rich! Van Dam rolls around the ring for a few seconds to sell the impact before crawling back over Rich and hooking the leg; …1…2…3! Tommy Rich was impressive, but the TV champion was too much for him on this occasion!

Van Dam climbs to his feet and takes the Television championship as Bill Alfonso enters the ring. Van Dam does the thumb taunts with the title over his shoulder as Alfonso frantically hops around the ring with his whistle in his mouth, blowing it like a mad-man. Van Dam just smirks until suddenly he goes crashing down to the mat! Alfonso climbs out of the ring quickly as the camera pans around to reveal Stevie Richards, the former ECW Flock member back in 1997! The fans boo as Richards, who brushes his long ragged hair back after stroking the thick lining of stubble which consumes his face. Richards, who wears a pair of blue jeans and stands topless, nailed RVD with a steel chair! Richards drops the chair and lifts the TV Champion up before lifting him into the air and twirling around, nailing him with a Spinning Brainbuster! Rob lays out on the mat as Richards returns to his feet, flexing his muscles with an insane look on his long face. Richards smirks, gritting his teeth as the fans chant the words “Fuck you Stevie!” loudly as Styles goes hyper at ringside, hyping the re-debut of Stevie Richards as we cut to a brief transmission.

WINNER – Rob Van Dam

OR – 57

(Bookers Notes: Rich and Van Dam didn’t really but on the blockbuster I expected them to, possibly because Rich his in his early fourties, obviously not in his prime anymore. Anyway, to the after match festivities and the debut of Stevie Richards. We signed Stevie to a contract earlier on in the year. We sent him down to our Development Territory, The School of Hard Knocks, to brush up on his ring work. Despite being absent for so long Richards does indeed seem over with the crowd, and hopefully this will continue as we at ECW feel that Stevie can become a big player in the company.)

ECW Tag Title Match

Steve Corino & Rhino © vs. New Jack & Spike Dudley

New Jack and Spike made their way out first with Spike dressed up as a gangster to fit in with his partner for tonight’s main event. Rhino and Corino then make their way out to jeers from the fans. Rhino doesn’t look too pleased as usual, snarling like a vicious animal. He and Corino drop the belts as their opponents meet them halfway on the aisle. The faces take control, with Spike battling with Corino – knocking him back into the barricade and then knocking him over the top rope with a hard right to the face. New Jack somehow finds himself with a steel chair which one of the fans handed to him. New Jack cracks Rhino over the skull with it, and the Man-Beast just doubles over before standing up straight once more. New Jack hits him in the gut wit the steel before grabbing him via the hair and throwing him into the steel barricade. Spike and Corino are now in the ring. The two lock up, with Spike seemingly taking control of his opponent with a headlock but Corino reverses with a high backdrop which sends Spike crashing down to the mat with impact. Corino continues the assault with a series of mounted punches but that ends when New Jack breaks it up. New Jack lifts Spike up and kicks Corino in the gut before dropping him with a quick DDT. New Jack covers Corino; …1…2, Rhino breaks the count up. Rhino backs off into the corner as Spike turns around, Rhino locks his eyes on Spike before charging out of the corner and taking out his opponent with a massive Gore! Spike goes flying thanks to the Gore from Rhino! Rhino turns and has to contend with New Jack, who takes it to the Man-Beast with a series of rights and lefts. The match up continues like this with the two brawling with neither men having a clear advantage until Steve Corino attacks New Jack from behind with a low blow. Rhino then pulls New Jack in and lifts him into the air before driving him down to the mat with a thunderous powerbomb! Rhino covers New Jack, but the “Original Gangster” kicks out on two to the amazement of the fans. Rhino shakes his head with a pissed off look on his face, he turns around and his met with a kick to the gut from Little Spike Dudley! Spike then runs towards the turnbuckle, runs up and leaps off with the Acid Drop! Rhino his out of it! Steve Corino his all alone with New Jack and Spike! Corino’s eyes widen in shock, he can’t believe what he sees as the two men stare down on Corino who slowly backs away into the ropes. Suddenly, Lance Storm & Christian York enter the ring behind the faces! York attacks New Jack from behind with a forearm smash before throwing him into the ropes and clotheslining him over the top. York follows to the outside as Spike turns to Storm and hits him with a right hand. Spike goes to kick Storm but Storm catches and spins Spike Dudley around, Corino quickly hooks the leg and lifts him into the air before nailing a Spinning Fisherman’s Suplex! Spike his out of it, he’s out cold! Rhino revives on the outside as Storm raises his arms into the air in the ring to jeers from the fans who are not liking the outcome of this match at ALL. The referee counts as Corino keeps the bridge hooked; ..1…2…3!! Rhino and Corino retain their tag team titles thanks to their partner in crime Lance Storm and that damn ‘Anti-Hardcore’ Christian York!

Suddenly, as the Canadian Connection celebrate, and York and New Jack find themselves brawling in the crowd; Highway to Hell by AC/DC fills the arena to a decent pop from the fans and out from the back emerge The Dudley Boys! The Dudleys rush down to the ring as the trio of Canadian’s escape and retreat onto the aisle along with Tammy Lynn Bytch. The Dudley’s pace around the ring before finally checking on their brother Little Spike Dudley who lays prone in the ring.

WINNERS – Steve Corino & Rhino; Still Tag Team Champions

OR – 80

(Bookers Notes: The Canadian Connection are clearly growing on the fans with their arrogance and heel tactics. The fans now see Lance Storm the second biggest heel in the company with the Tag Team champions just outside of the top five. Their feud with the Dudley Boys will probably escalate for several more months. Big Dick Dudley has checked into rehab due to personal problems which we do not wish to reveal because of the confidence Big Dick had in us, so the attack last week where Rhino demolished Big Dick could be the last time we see the menacing Dudley Boy on our TV screens for a long time, until he sorts his problems out.)

The Dudley’s pace around the ring, with D-Von still checking on Spike who slowly awakens to see his half brothers checking on him. Spike’s eyes widen in shock due to him receiving help from the most unlikely of all people. Bubba retrieves a microphone and walks into the centre of the ring as D-Von helps Spike up to his feet. The Canadian’s are now halfway up the aisle, and are still looking at the ring at their enemies.

Bubba – ” Listen up, mother-fuckers! I’m sick to fuckin’ death of you three screwin’ with us! We had the Tag Titles won at Wrestle-Palooza, you SCREWED us! You demolished Big Dick, you took him out.. Now you screwed Spike fuckin’ Dudley out of the Tag Titles! You three really should jus’ get your asses down here so we can beat ‘em! C’mon, shit-heads! Get the fuck down here, NOW! “

Corino and Storm shake their heads in unison as Rhino storms down to the ring, until he is restrained by his partners in the Canadian Connection.

Bubba – ” Is it only your boy Rhino with balls? Fuck, you two really are a pair of pussies.. Ain’t that right, D-Von? “

D-Von – ” Oh testify, brother! “

Bubba takes the microphone back off D-Von.

Bubba – ” Alright, al-fuckin’-right.. Because you three are a bunch of pussies we’re gonna make a challenge, no, in fact, we’re goin’ back to the Executive’s office an’ getting’ ourselves a match with you three at Livin’ Dangerously! Yeah! After all, you three fucks are Livin’ Dangerously after fuckin’ with the Dudley Boys.. “

D-Von nods in agreement.

D-Von – ” Oh brothers, for you have sinned.. Thou shall not lie.. Thou shall not steal and thou shall not FUCK WITH THE DUDLEYS! Oh testify! “

The fans pop chanting “Fuck ‘em Dudleys!” as the show fades to a close with Joey Styles screaming, saying that the Dudleys will get payback on the Canadian Connection at Living Dangerously! (OR: 71)

Then, <b>Joey Styles</b> enters the ring with a microphone in hand. He welcomes us to the show before going on to hype up tomorrow's pay per view event<font color="#800000"><b>Living Dangerously</b></font>. He informs us that in tomorrow's main event we will see the World Heavyweight Champion Taz take on the challenger Jerry Lynn. Styles moves on to tell us that tonight we will be seeing<b>Stevie Richards</b> in action for the first time since his return when he takes on <b>Rob Van Dam</b> with the Television Championship on the line.</p><p align="left"><u><font color="#800080"><b>Super Nova vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri<br></b></font></u>We kick things off with style as Tajiri and Nova collide. Tajiri takes control with a few stiff kicks but Nova eventually bounces back. Nova hits Tajiri with a quick suplex before backing his opponent off into the corner. Nova goes up onto the second buckle and locks Tajiri in a headlock before springing off with a massive Tornado DDT. Nova couldn't capitalise though, as he also landed awkwardly - leaving both men in a heap in the centre of the ring. Nova eventually made the cover but a little too late, as Tajiri kicked out on two. The two continued to battle it out, displaying some great technical ability. Nova eventually knocked Tajiri out of the ring. Tajiri fell into the barricade as Nova went up top, then, Nova leaped off with a big flip splash but Tajiri wisely evaded. Nova went down hard to the floor, giving Tajiri the opportunity to take control and he wisely did via rolling his opponent back into the ring and then backing him against the ropes. Tajiri then locked Nova in the Tarantula submission. After a few moments of agony for Nova, Tajiri finally released the hold but he damage was done. Nova stayed on his knees and <b>Tajiri capitalised with the Kick of Death, right to the temple of Super Nova</b>. Tajiri then covered his fallen opponent; ..1...2...3. The cover was academic.<br><b>WINNER : Yoshihiro Tajiri<br>OR : 73<br></b><font color="#800080"><i>( <b>Bookers Notes: </b>The two did exactly what I expected them to do. They opened the show with a great technical display which the Extreme Championship Wrestling fans love. It's a shame that, at the moment, these two men are nothing more than a pair of generic Light-Heavyweights which are only here to wrestle, however, I predict big thing's for both of these in the future. )</i></font></p><p align="left">Straight after the match up we were greeted via the music of <b>Lance Storm</b>. He, <b>Tammy Lynn Bytch</b> and the Tag Team Champions <b>Steve Corino</b> &amp; <b>Rhino</b> came out from the back to boo's from the fans and a chorus of &quot;Fuck off back to Canada!&quot; chants, which are pretty unique. Storm just shook his head and entered the ring along with his fellow Canadian Connection members, and the only American in the group Tammy Lynn (Dawn Marie) who probably doesn't realise what's happening due to her ditzy-ness. Steve Corino retrieved a microphone and gave it Storm, who began to speak.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm - </b><i>&quot; You people really are pathetic, aren't you? We are the best athletes in this damn company and you go about jeering us? You should really get your priorities right, shouldn't you? I mean, I'm Lance Storm, one of the greatest wrestlers to come out of Canada.. Rhino and Steve Corino, my fellow Canadian's, are the ECW Tag Team Champions and you still boo us? I thought ECW was about athletes and wrestling, but I'm obviously wrong as you moron's prefer hardcore blood-fest's with the likes of D-Von and Bubba Ray controlling the show, smashing people through tables and hitting people with weapon's but that doesn't work. You see, my man Rhino over here did exactly the same to Big Dick Dudley, he absolutely destroyed him and that's what we plan to do to the Dudley's! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans continue to boo, shouting &quot;Shut the fuck up!&quot; at Storm.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm - </b><i>&quot; Ugh, be quiet! Please? Your moronic chants are making my ears bleed. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans continue to boo, Storm just shakes his head and hands the microphone to Corino.</p><p align="left"><b>Corino - </b><i>&quot; People, people.. Do you actually know what you're doing? Yeah, sure, I might not have been in this business for too long but I do know a lot, like why American fans are SO stupid and why Canadian athlete's are usually a lot better than American athletes, for instance, look at myself, Rhino and Lance Storm.. Who comes near us talent-wise? Not the Dudley's, not Taz.. NOBODY, that's who! You people should really do yourselves a favour and recognise that, recognise the future of this industry.. Three young, talented athletes.. You've got Lance Storm, you've got Rhino.. Disrespect that guy an' he'll tear you a new asshole, and you've got ME.. Steve Corino. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Corino nods arrogantly while pointing to himself as the fans continue to boo.</p><p align="left"><b>Corino - </b><i>&quot; Oh yeah, I almost forgot.. Sorry Dawn.. You've also got Dawn Marie.. Yeah, that's right.. DAWN MARIE.. You can storm referring to this beautiful specimen as Tammy Lynn Bytch, she doesn't want to be associated with some filthy, disgusting crack-whore.. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Cyrus begins to chuckle, agreeing with Corino as Styles says that those words were uncalled for. Storm takes the microphone as Rhino move towards the ropes, screaming insults at the fans and telling them to &quot;Shut the fuck up!&quot; at the top of his voice.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm - </b><i>&quot; That's right. We are the finest wrestlers in this industry and we have the finest manager in this industry, we have Dawn Marie. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Dawn nods in agreement with a huge smile on her face. Storm hands her the microphone and she begins to speak, well, she tries but her voice is drowned via the &quot;show us your tits&quot; chants from the male fans. Rhino takes the microphone, snarling with intensity.</p><p align="left"><b>Rhino - </b><i>&quot; You fucks better SHUT THE FUCK UP before I go out there and RIP ALL OF YOUR FUCKIN' HEADS OFF! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The boo's get louder as Dawn takes the microphone once more.</p><p align="left"><b>Dawn Marie - </b><i>&quot; People.. Please. Ahem.. The Dudley's.. Ha.. The Dudley's decided to challenge my boy's last week on Hardcore TV, and they WILL regret it. You see, here on behalf of my client's I would like to accept the challenge which the Dudley's issued last week! You see, it will be Rhino, Steve Corino and Lance Storm taking on D-Von and Bubba Ray.. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Styles lets out a loud screeching &quot;What!?&quot; at ringside, before questioning whether it will be a handicap match up.</p><p align="left"><b>Dawn Marie - </b><i>&quot; You see, nobody will step up to team up with the Dudley's because they FEAR the Canadian Connection.. They're scared of the future of this company, and let's face it people, the future isn't bright for the Dudley Boys! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Storm nods in agreement as the fans boo, but the boo's soon refer back to the &quot;show us your tits&quot; chants.</p><p align="left"><b>Storm - </b><i>&quot; Ugh, can you please show a women some courtesy instead of being pigs all your lives? Anyhow, tomorrow is Living Dangerously.. The third pay per view event of the year and we will mark that event by defeating The Dudley Boys! Tomorrow will be your last chance to see The Dudley Boys as we plan on taking them out, taking them out of ECW for good! Why? Because we are CANADIAN and that means we CAN! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Storm places the microphone down as Styles hypes up tomorrow's handicap match up, saying that it will be an handicap match due to the injuries Big Dick Dudley sustained at the hands of Rhino two weeks ago on Hardcore TV as we cut to a brief transmission. <b>(OR: 78)</b></p><p align="left">We return from the transmission to what appears to be a pre-taped vignette from the streets. The camera pans around for a few moments until we spot a figure roaming through the darkness - we hear the sound of a gun shot in the background as the figure emerges from the alleyway, it's <b>New Jack</b>! The &quot;Original Gangsta&quot; stands in the alley as the camera zooms up towards him. New Jack stare directly into the camera and begins to speak as discarded rubbish blows through the streets.</p><p align="left"><b>New Jack - </b><i>&quot; 'Dis is where I grew up, where I was born 'n bred.. Where I killed a man.. Where I fucked him good for some cash. Ya see, I ain't afraid o' nothin'! I ain't afraid o' punks threatenin' me, fuck, I've been at knife point all ma' fuckin' life since I killed that guy and I still ain't been afraid.. Christian York, you don't change 'dat. I still ain't afraid o' yo' punk ass. You've tried your hardest to fuck me up, an' it ain't fuckin' worked. Let's face it York, you ain't SHIT compared to tha' problems I've faced in tha' past! You're NOTHIN' compared to 'em! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">New Jack pauses for a moment before resuming. </p><p align="left"><b>New Jack - </b><i>&quot; York, you got lucky at Wrestle-Palooza.. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">( York walks towards the ropes, as New Jack picks the trash can up. York reaches down to grab New Jack, and gets a stiff trash can shot to the face!! York falls down to the mat as New Jack drops the trash can and hops up onto the ring apron. He climbs up top and poses, he leaps off with a Diving Headbutt.. YORK GETS HIS KNEES UP!! New Jack leaps up to his feet, York gets behind him.. SCHOOL BOY, ...1.....2.......3!!! )</p><p align="left"><b>New Jack (Voice Over) - </b><i>&quot; ..I ain't got no problem with that, but you decided to fuck wit' me afta' tha' match, an' that's what I don't like. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">( York climbs to his feet in celebration as New Jack climbs to his knees, hands on head in shock. WHAM!! YORK JUST LEVELLED NEW JACK WITH ANOTHER SUPER-KICK!! ) We then return to the original scene with New Jack standing in the alley.</p><p align="left"><b>New Jack - </b><i>&quot; Mother-fucker, that jus' don't happen to me.. Livin' Dangerously, man, that's jus' around tha' fuckin' corner and I'll be damned if you do that to me again.. It's not gonna happen, punk.. Jus' not gonna happen. You see, I have justifiable homicides to my name, bitch, and at Livin' Dangerously I jus' won't give a fuck. LISTEN to me York, you've pushed me to tha' fuckin' edge and tomorrow, tomorrow I'll use the tactics from the streets.. The tactics which made me one notorious sonuva bitch, tactics which made me a killer.. Which made me a fuckin' Gangsta'.. At Livin' Dangerously, you'll see 'em first hand.. And you can't do a DAMN THING 'bout it.. You fucked wit' tha' wrong guy York, you've fucked your life up 'cause 'da Original Gansta is gonna fuckin' kill you! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The video footage then ends and we return to the arena. <b>(OR: 77)</b></p><p align="left"><font color="#800080"><u><b>TV Title Match</b></u><b> : <u>Rob Van Dam © vs. Stevie Richards<br></u></b></font>Rob Van Dam, per usual, his accompanied via the &quot;Manager of Champions&quot; Bill Alfonso. This is Stevie Richards return match to Extreme Championship Wrestling after a lengthy absence. The Television title is on the line. We start things off with a tie up in the centre of the ring, Richards takes control but Van Dam kicks Richards in the head. Richards releases the hold and backs away. Van Dam runs towards him and fakes a Spin Kick, and instead he goes for a leg sweep and knocks Richards down to the mat. Van Dam continues the assault with a series of rights and lefts to Stevie Richards. Richards rolls towards the ropes, under the bottom rope and out of the ring to shrug off the right hands he received to the face. Richards staggers around on the outside. Van Dam then sprints towards the ropes and leaps over with a big vaulting body press, landing on Richards! Both men go down to the floor. Van Dam quickly returns to his feet and re-enters the ring. Richards slowly follows. The match up continues with a series of lock ups and counters until Richards breaks a Rob Van Dam sleeper up with a elbow to the face. Van Dam turns around clutching his jaw, buying Richards some time. Van Dam turns and receives a clothesline from Stevie. Bill Alfonso hops onto the apron sensing that Richards has the advantage, but Richards sees him and snatches the Television championship off him before pushing him down to the hard outside floor! Richards then turns around as Van Dam returns to his feet, <b>SMACK! Richards just nailed RVD with the TV title belt! </b>Richards could have it won, right here! Richards covers his opponent, the Television champion; ..1...2..., Van Dam JUST gets the shoulder up to the amazement of Stevie Richards and the fans. Richards picks the belt up once more and lines Van Dam up for another belt shot to the face. RVD gets up, Richards swings the championship but Van Dam goes under Richards' arm. Richards turns and receives a spinning kick to the face, knocking him down! Van Dam then does the thumb taunts and groggily climbs up onto the top rope. <b>Van Dam comes off the top rope with a Five Star Frog Splash, but Richards shoots his knees up from off the mat! </b>Van Dam falls back clutching his ribs as Richards climbs to his feet. Richards grabs Van Dam and plants him with a DDT! Richards hooks the leg, ...1...2..., Van Dam somehow kicks out once more! How the hell does he manage it?! Richards can't believe it! He shakes his head in disbelief! Richards goes to the outside and pushes a cameraman of the chair he sits on before picking the steel up and re-entering the ring. Richards raises his arms into the air as he lines the Television Champion up for a chair shot. Van Dam's almost year long title reign could come to an end right here! Van Dam climbs to his knees as Richards raises the chair over his head! Wait, Richards his stopped in his tracks! Alfonso grabs the chair! Richards turns around and snatches the chair back off Alfonso and pushes the &quot;Manager of Champions&quot; down to the mat! Richards turns.. <b>VAN DAMINATOR!! </b>Rob Van Dam just sprung to life and nailed Stevie Richards with the Van Daminator! Van Dam raises his arms into the air and stumbles around the ring.. Wait.. What the hell?! <b>Masato Tanaka</b> slides into the ring! <b>Van Dam turns around straight into a huge Powerslam from Tanaka! </b>Richards slowly climbs to his feet. Tanaka helps him up and throws him into the corner with a powerful irish whip. He follows up with a turnbuckle clothesline before grabbing Richards in a Reverse DDT type position before going up onto the top rope.. <b>Diamond Dust from Tanaka! </b>Masato Tanaka has just left both Rob Van Dam and Stevie Richards laying flat on the mat! The referee calls for the bell, none of these men can continue thanks to this huge disruption in the form of Masato Tanaka. The fans boo loudly as Tanaka raises his arms up into the air to the dismay of the fans as we cut to a brief transmission.<br><b>WINNER : No Contest<br>OR : 74<br></b><font color="#800080"><i>( <b>Bookers Notes: </b>Rob Van Dam and Stevie Richards couldn't really bring the fans to life due to their mis-matched styles, but the match wasn't extremely poor by all means. Van Dam continues to grow as one of the biggest stars in ECW, via his lengthy championship reign (of near twelve months) he is giving the secondary ECW title serious credibility, almost as much credibility as the ECW World Championship which is currently held by the number one babyface in the company. Stevie Richards could do with some more work, his lack of presence on Television for the amount of time he as been away as made him almost forgettable, with only long time ECW fans remembering him but still, remembering him more as a joke than a serious athlete. )</i></font></p><p align="left">We go to ringside for a few moments to where Styles and Cyrus hype up tomorrow's Living Dangerously pay per view, but that all ends when the music of <b>Jerry Lynn</b> fills the arena. The fans immediately begin to boo as Lynn walks down to the ring. Lynn looks puzzled, he climbs through the ropes and takes a microphone. The fans chant &quot;You fucking idiot!&quot; loudly at Lynn. Lynn shakes his head and begins to speak.</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; I don't know what you're talkin' about. Why am I the fucking idiot? What have I done? &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans continue to boo, Lynn looks genuinely confused.</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; Oh, I get it.. You think I attacked Taz, don't ya? &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans respond with &quot;Taz his gonna kill you!&quot; chants.</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; Like fuck I did. Why would I attack Taz? Because I have an upcoming match with him? Look, I know I can beat Taz without getting any sorta cheap shots in before our match, okay? It wasn't me. Hell, I wasn't even here last week! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans don't believe Lynn, nor does Styles who condemns the number one contender as a liar.</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; It.. Wasn't.. Me! I respect ECW too much to pull stunts like that, I respect Taz and I respect the ECW title. I wanna put on a show at Living Dangerously, I wanna beat Taz at his one-hundred-percent best.. I don't wanna beat an injured Taz, I wanna beat the &quot;Human Suplex Machine&quot;, the man who beat &quot;The Franchise&quot; Shane Douglas at Guilty at Charged! Nobody else. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Lynn pauses for a moment.</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; I didn't attack Taz last week, I was back in Minneapolis with my family.. Back in Minnesota, I was nowhere near Viking Hall. Ask the guys in the back, I wasn't here, hell, ask Taz! He'll tell ya that I didn't do it.. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Lynn just shakes his head in disbelief as the fans continue to boo him, they think he as done it. As he?</p><p align="left"><b>Lynn - </b><i>&quot; I've told you my story, believe it or not.

If I let'chu! &quot;</i></b></p><p align="left">Styles lets out a huge &quot;Ot-Ho!&quot; as <b>Taz</b> storms out from the back. Taz walks straight down to the ring with a look of hate and purpose on his face. Taz has stitches in his forehead due to the attack he suffered last week on Hardcore TV. Taz climbs through the ropes as Lynn stands still with the microphone in hand. Suddenly, Taz strikes! Taz takes Lynn down with a big clothesline! Taz continues the assault via pummelling on Jerry Lynn, he must have done it! Taz lifts Lynn up and throws him into the corner. Taz follows up with a clothesline. Taz drags Lynn out of the corner and plants him with a huge overhead <b>Sambo Taz-Plex! </b>Lynn sits up riving in agony, clutching his lower back! Lynn returns to his feet, he turns around and <b>wonders straight into another Taz-Plex! WHAM! What impact! </b>Lynn lays flat on the mat. Taz walks up to him and starts to stomp away on him. Taz reaches down and picks the microphone up as he continues to stomp on Lynn. Taz raises the microphone up to his mouth, still stomping away on Lynn, and begins to speak into it.</p><p align="left"><b>Taz - </b><i>&quot; You Lyin'... Piece o'.. SHIT! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">Taz throws the microphone down to the mat before picking Lynn up once more. Lynn his out of it. Taz drags Lynn over to the turnbuckle. He exposes the top buckle before lifting Lynn up and dropping him face first onto the steel! Jerry Lynn is busted wide open! He's a bloodied mess! Taz still isn't satisfied with the results, instead, he lifts Lynn up and drops him into the steel buckle again! Jerry Lynn falls back to the mat. He lays on the mat spread-eagled, he's unconscious. Taz stares at Jerry Lynn's broken, bloodied body as Styles proclaims Jerry Lynn as the attacker, the man who left Taz for dead last week on Hardcore TV. The show fades to a close just hours away from the Living Dangerously Pay Per View Event. <b>(OR: 75)</b></p><p align="left"><b>Hardcore TV Fades Out<br>Show Overall Rating: 75</b></p>

With the World Title comes fame, fortune and the right to call yourself the best. Two men want this right. Jerry Lynn wants to earn the right, Taz wants to retain the right. Taz has held the Title since January of this year when he defeated &quot;The Franchise&quot; Shane Douglas at the Guilty as Charged Pay Per View. Taz retained the gold at WrestlePalooza when he defeated Jerry Lynn and Lance Storm in a triple threat match, BUT, Jerry Lynn wanted more. Jerry Lynn believes he is the best in ECW and the rivalry as built on. Just over a week ago we witnessed a vicious attack on Taz, presumably from Jerry Lynn. Taz responded via taking Lynn out on yesterday's Hardcore TV event ahead of tonight's huge Living Dangerously event. You can beat these two men distain each other after the recent happenings, but as Jerry Lynn said, Taz his a man Living Dangerously. Will Jerry Lynn become the new ECW champion?

The rivalry continued through Guilty as Charged and WrestlePalooza, but at WrestlePalooza a whole new twist was introduced in The Sandman. The Sandman aligned himself with Tommy Dreamer to fight of Credible, Funk and Jason and has continued to do so, but also found himself in the middle of a bloody war and made himself a target for the power hungry threesome. At WrestlePalooza we will witness a No Holds Barred tag team match up as The Sandman and Dreamer will team up to take on Terry Funk and Justin Credible. Who will walk out the victor?

<p align="center"><font size="5" color="#FF0000"><b>LIVING DANGEROUSLY</b></font></p><p align="left"><i>The Extreme Championship Wrestling World Championship is a prize every man wants to hold, a title which any man would die for, a title which men would kill for. The Extreme Championship Wrestling World Title is one of the biggest prizes on the world of sports entertainment, and two men will do anything to get it. They will attack each other back and forth to gain the advantage, they will maim each other to inflict unthinkable agony. They will go through hell and back to take the gold but is it all worth it? They will enter Living Dangerously as themselves, but when they, if they, walk out will they ever be the same again? <b>Taz</b>, <b>Jerry Lynn</b>: two men who are living on the edge, two men who are <font color="#FF0000"><b>Living Dangerously</b></font>!</i></p><p align="left">&quot;This is Extreme&quot; plays in the background as the third ECW pay per view of the year opens up from the studio where we see Joey Styles standing by with a microphone in hand. Styles informs us that Living Dangerously will be a huge pay per view event, a pay per view which only Extreme Championship Wrestling could produce. Styles then walks down several steps before taking his place at ringside along with Cyrus 'The Virus'. The two then go about hyping the upcoming show as we kick things off with the International Invitational match with participant's from Mexico, Japan, Italy and America. Styles says that the four men will battle it out and do their country proud to open the show.</p><p align="left"><font color="#FF0000"><b>01 <u>International Invitational:</u><u>Super Crazy vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri vs. Little Guido vs. Chris Chetti<br></u></b></font>All four men eventually enter the ring, with each man standing in a corner, all locking eyes with each other ahead of tonight's opener here at Living Dangerously 1999. Then, Tajiri storms out of the corner and takes the advancing Chris Chetti down with a spinning wheel kick to the face. Tajiri gets up and calls Guido into the ring. Guido does and hits Tajiri with a clothesline to the throat of the Japanese Buzzsaw, who goes down to the mat like a sack of bricks. Super Crazy finds himself up on the top rope as Guido turns around. Crazy leaps off the top with a 450 Splash and knocks the Italian down to the mat. Super Crazy goes for the early cover attempt but it comes to no avail as Chris Chetti breaks the count up with a double axe-handle. Crazy returns to his feet but is almost instantly knocked back down to the mat via a quick dropkick from America's Representative in this match up. Chetti turns and sees Guido against the ropes. Chetti runs towards the ropes and goes to dispose of Guido with a clothesline but Guido pulls the ropes down and sends Chetti over the top and to the outside floor. Back in the ring Tajiri is up and taking it to Super Crazy with a series of stiff kicks. Crazy blocks a side-kick and reels Tajiri in, but his almost beheaded via a stiff enziguri to the side of the head! Crazy goes down and rolls out of the ring in agony as Little Guido locks Tajiri in a waste-lock from behind. Guido lifts Crazy into the air, going for a German Suplex, but Tajiri flips over Guido and locks is opponent in a waste-lock of his own. Tajiri lifts Guido up and plants him with a face-first belly to back slam. Tajiri then displays some decent amateur wrestling via manoeuvring around the back of Guido and locking him in a quick chin lock but Guido gets up and sends Tajiri back into the ropes with a quick push. Tajiri stops at the ropes and comes flying back with a big handspring elbow, knocking Little Guido back down to the mat! Chris Chetti re-enters the ring and hits Tajiri with a dropkick to the back, sending him into the corner.

Jack pulls a trash can of weapons out from underneath the ring before tossing them over the top rope and into the ring. Jack jumps back up onto the high ramp before climbing through the ropes as &quot;Smells Like Teen Spirit&quot; by Nirvana hits, signalling the entrance of the man the fans love to hate, Christian York. York makes his way out from the back telling the fans that they really should &quot;shut the hell up&quot; before wiping his feet on the ring apron and entering the ring, going face to face with his nemesis New Jack. New Jack gets right up in York's face and starts to disrespect him, York has had enough, he strikes New Jack with a low blow! New Jack naturally goes down to his knees, clutching his crotch in agony as York continues the assault with a series of clubbing blows to the back. Jack goes down as York puts the stomps on him to the dismay of the fans. York turns his back on New Jack, something you should never do, and poses arrogantly. The fans don't like this, and nor does New Jack who leaps into the air and takes York out with a flying forearm to the back of Christian York.

New Jack runs into the ropes, on the return York leaps into the air and knocks his opponent down with a spinning kick to the face! Both men go down to the mat in a heap, with York perhaps worse for wear despite nailing Jack with that spinning kick. York eventually crawls towards the ropes and pulls himself up and so does New Jack as Styles puts them both over with his very kind words, dubbing them both as great athletes.</p><p align="left">New Jack and York both turn away and stagger into the centre of the ring. New Jack his the first to strike with a hard right hand, York blocks the next attempt and fires back with a stiff right hand of his own before reaching down in desperation and picking one of the foreign objects up, a cheese grater.

He turns and New Jack kicks him in the gut before <b>driving him through the trash can with a quick DDT</b>, into the cover; ...1...2..., Christian York just kicks out! How did he manage that one?

Styles puts over the fans, while Cyrus brings them back to Earth with his usual heelish antics, calling the fans &quot;trogladytes&quot; as Styles moves on to hyping up the next ECW Pay Per View, Barely Legal, which takes place on the 25th of April, next month but suddenly we're cut off via &quot;Walk&quot; by Pantera signifying the entrance of the one and only ECW Television champion <b>Rob Van Dam</b>.</p><p align="left"><font color="#FF0000"><b>03 <u>Nobody can beat R-V-D!<br></u></b></font>Rob Van Dam makes his way out from the back doing his usual cocky antics, with the thumb taunts and whole as Alfonso frantically blows his whistle.

Storm, Corino and Rhino stand in the ring all looking none-too happy as we cut to a brief transmission..</p><p align="left"><font color="#FF0000"><b>07 <u>Tag Team Match:</u><u>Justin Credible &amp; Terry Funk vs. Tommy Dreamer &amp; The Sandman<br></u></b></font>Straight after the transmission the music of the self-proclaimed &quot;New Innovator of Violence&quot; Justin Credible fills the arena and out from the back emerges the obnoxious superstar. Credible slowly walks down to the ring flipping the fans off on his way, but for some reason he is without Terry Funk. Credible, as always. his accompanied to the ring by the self-proclaimed &quot;World's Sexiest Man&quot; Jason. Credible enters the ring and takes a microphone before we begin as the fans jeer relentlessly.</p><p align="left"><b>Credible: </b><i>&quot; Oh, do us ALL a favour and shut your damn holes! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans, obviously, react with jeers.</p><p align="left"><b>Credible: </b><i>&quot; You stupid sons-of-bitches, I'm sick of all of you and so is Terry Funk! Ya see, Terry Funk, well, he had a little accident and he isn't here tonight although he wishes he could be to, ya know, beat the living HELL out of Sandman and Dreamer but I guess it ain't gonna happen. &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans boo and chant &quot;Bullshit!&quot; at Credible.</p><p align="left"><b>Credible: </b><i>&quot; Anyway, as the new Innovator of Violence I am not one to disappoint so I will still be in action - with a different partner.. Please welcome.. JASON! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans boo as Jason raises his arms high into the air.</p><p align="left"><b>Credible: </b><i>&quot; We're still gonna win, ya see, we're not just the coolest.. I'm not just the best.. I am.. Just-in-Credible! &quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans are not happy at all, they feel as though they have been ripped off as Credible smirks in the ring awaiting his opponents the team of Sandman and Dreamer. Eventually Alice In Chains' &quot;Man in a Box&quot; hits and out from the back emerges the &quot;Innovator of Violence&quot; himself, Tommy Dreamer. Dreamer walks out from the back and stops at the bottom of the ramp, refusing to take his eyes off Credible and Jason. Suddenly we hear the familiar chorus of Metallica's &quot;Enter Sandman&quot; as Dreamer smirks. Dreamer runs and climbs into the ring, Sandman makes his way through the crowd and slides into the ring behind Credible. Dreamer pounds away on Jason, sending him into the corner. Dreamer drags him out and kicks him in the gut before planting him with a quick DDT as Sandman takes Credible down with a Russian Leg Sweep in the centre of the ring. Credible sits up clutching the back of his head and ends up receiving an hard kick to the face, knocking him straight back down to the mat. Dreamer lifts Jason up and lifts him up onto his shoulders, going for the Spicolli Driver but Jason manages to wriggle his way out of it and slide behind Dreamer. Jason locks Dreamer in a waste-lock but Sandman breaks it up. Jason turns around and swings at The Sandman with a clothesline but The Hardcore Icon ducks. Jason turns around and receives a toe kick. Sandman then follows up with a stiff uppercut of his own. Jason falls back into the ropes. Dreamer then runs towards Jason and knocks him out of the ring with a clothesline. Jason goes tumbling to the outside after connecting with the ring apron. Jason looks hurt.</p><p align="left">Back in the ring Credible has been left all alone with The Sandman and Dreamer. Dreamer proceeds to hammer away on Credible in the corner. The Sandman climbs through the ropes and out of the ring. He looks under the ring apron and pulls out a pair of handcuffs! The fans respond with cheers as The Sandman climbs back into the ring. Dreamer backs Credible back into the ropes, then, Sandman proceeds to handcuff him to them after tying him up! Credible can't escape! He pleads for mercy as Sandman and Dreamer both stare him down! Justin Credible can't escape now! Suddenly, Jason slides back into the ring with a steel chair in hand. Jason nails Dreamer with a swift, hard chair shot to the back of the head! Sandman goes down onto his knees. <b>Jason then hits him with another immense chair shot! SMACK! </b>Sandman lays flat on the mat. Dreamer turns to Jason and hits him with a quick clothesline but Jason gets straight back up. Jason picks the chair up once more. Jason holds the steel up. Dreamer backs against the ropes, LOW BLOW FROM CREDIBLE! Credible has just got his legs free and that could have proved costly as Dreamer goes down to his knees. Jason then follows up with a chair shot to the head! Dreamer goes down, he's bleeding! The corner of the chair connected with The Innovator's head! Jason goes for the cover; ...1....2., Dreamer kicks out! Jason gets up looking frustrated. Credible cries for Jason to find the key for the handcuffs, but Jason shrugs his shoulders. He doesn't know where to look! Sandman climbs to his feet. He attacks Jason from behind with a forearm smash! Jason goes down onto his knees. Like a maniac on the loose Sandman unloads his rage on Credible who his prone against the ropes. He can't defend himself from this onslaught! Jason climbs to his feet, he's about to aid Credible but Dreamer his up also. Dreamer picks the chair up. He spins Jason around and stabs him in the mid-section with the steel chair! <b>Dreamer then scoops Jason up onto his shoulders, spins around and plants him with the Spicolli Driver! </b>Jason stays down, there's nothing he can do at all. Sandman stands back, Credible his now a bloodied mess as Dreamer covers Jason; ...1....2....3! Dreamer and The Sandman have defeated Jason and Justin Credible!</p><p align="left"><b>WINNERS<font color="#FF0000">:</font> The Sandman &amp; Tommy Dreamer<br>OR<font color="#FF0000">:</font> 70</b></p><p align="left">Sandman and Dreamer get up and embrace in the ring. Credible lays flat against the ropes. Dreamer looks at him and stares a hole right through him before lifting the steel chair up over his head. The fans begin to cheer loudly as Credible's eyes widen, there's nothing he can do to prevent this from happening. Cyrus dubs this as sickening as Styles says that Credible deserves it. Sandman keeps Jason at bay, but suddenly, <b>Terry Funk</b> runs out from the back with a 2x4 wrapped in barbed wire in hand! Funk sprints down to the ring but stops on the outside as Dreamer stares at him. Funk begins to plead with Dreamer.. Dreamer shakes his head and raises the chair into the air..<b>SMACK! HOLY FUCK! STRAIGHT OVER CREDIBLE'S SKULL! WHAT IMPACT!</b> Funk puts his hands on his head in shock as Credible slumps down into a sort of crucifix with his arms spread eagled as we quickly cut to the studio where Joey Styles now stands.</p><p align="left">Styles basically hypes up Extreme Championship Wrestling for all it's worth, and the upcoming ECW title match between two men who absolutely despise each other: The ECW World Heavyweight Champion <b>Taz </b>and the challenger <b>Jerry Lynn</b> and on queue we are treated to a video montage (With a Voice Over) which re-caps the history between the two and how this match came about:</p><p align="left"><i>The World Championship. One of the biggest prizes in sports entertainment today, a title which all meant want. A title which men will die for, a title which men will kill for. With the World Title comes fame, fortune and the right to call yourself the best. Two men want this right. Jerry Lynn wants to earn the right, Taz wants to retain the right. Taz has held the Title since January of this year when he defeated &quot;The Franchise&quot; Shane Douglas at the Guilty as Charged Pay Per View. Taz retained the gold at WrestlePalooza when he defeated Jerry Lynn and Lance Storm in a triple threat match, BUT, Jerry Lynn wanted more. Jerry Lynn believes he is the best in ECW and the rivalry as built on. Just over a week ago we witnessed a vicious attack on Taz, presumably from Jerry Lynn. Taz responded via taking Lynn out on yesterday's Hardcore TV event ahead of tonight's huge Living Dangerously event. You can beat these two men distain each other after the recent happenings, but as Jerry Lynn said, Taz his a man Living Dangerously. Will Jerry Lynn become the new ECW champion? Or will he fall short like he as done in the past at the hands of champion, the &quot;Human Suplex Machine&quot;, the man they call Taz.</i></p><p align="left"><font color="#FF0000"><b>08 <u>ECW World Title:</u><u>Taz © vs. Jerry Lynn<br></u></b></font>&quot;Scapegoat&quot; by Fear Factory fills the arena and out from the back emerges the man they call &quot;Mr Underrated&quot; Jerry Lynn. Lynn walks down to the ring with a look of intensity on his face. He's ready, but is Taz? Lynn climbs through the ropes and into the ring before posing for a little ahead of this huge match up. The fans loudly chant &quot;Taz is gonna kill you!&quot; at Lynn. Lynn just ignores the chants and continues to pose as Taz's music hits. The arena is plunged into a orange glow as the &quot;Human Suplex Machine&quot; walks out from the back with the black towel over his head and with the ECW title around his waste. Taz removes the towel and throws it down onto the ramp, he does the same with the title. He then enters the ring with an angered look on his face. Lynn steps back into the corner, awaiting the bell. Jerry Lynn wants to wait for the bell, he doesn't want a brawl, he wants a wrestling match. Taz uncharacteristically storms out of the corner and goes for Lynn, but he is temporarily held back by the official. The official manages to calm Taz down a little, so Taz does what he his told and backs off. The referee turns his back and Taz runs at Lynn, hitting him with a clothesline! <i>&quot;Ding! Ding! Ding!&quot; </i>It looks like this one is underway with the <b>ECW World Championship on the line</b>, and them atch will be contested under <b>FTW Rules!</b></p><p align="left">Lynn catches a Taz right hand and hits him one of his own before dragging him into a kick to the mid-section.

Lynn fires back with a elbow but nobodies home as Taz evaded the attack. Lynn spins around and gets a kick to the gut. Taz then smacks Lynn with a hard right to the face, before following up with a left. Taz then connects with another toe kick.

Lynn locks Taz in a Dragon Sleeper, and then falls down to the mat with a Reverse DDT! Lynn covers the champion; ...1..., Taz kicks out with ease. Lynn pulls Taz up and throws him into the ropes, he then follows up with a clothesline but Taz falls down - pulling the ropes down and Lynn goes over the top rope and lands on the raised ramp way.

Fuck tha' World!&quot; before continuing the assault. Taz reaches down and pulls Lynn up, but Lynn fires back with a jab to the mid-section. Taz doubles over and Lynn leaps into the air and smashes Taz around the back of the head with a roundhouse kick! Taz falls down, flat on his back. Lynn quickly covers Taz; ..1...2..., Taz kicks out. Lynn gets up, shaking his head as he climbs back through the ropes and into the ring. Lynn grabs the top rope and uses them as a springboard, leaping over the top rope and going for a massive leg-drop but Taz rolls out of the way and Lynn goes crashing down onto the ramp! What impact! Lynn climbs to his feet clutching his back. Taz grabs him via the back of the head and throws him over the top rope and back into the ring. Taz follows.</p><p align="left">Back in the ring, Taz reaches down and raises Lynn to his feet. Snap suplex from Taz. Taz rolls into the cover; ...1...2., Lynn kicks out.

Lynn grabs Taz via the head, looking for a DDT, but Taz lifts Lynn up, <b>Lynn spins around and drives Taz head first through the wood with a Tornado DDT! HOLY SHIT! </b>It's got to be over, it's got to be! The fans can't believe it, we could have a new champion right here! If he can make the cover we have a new champion! Lynn slowly crawls over the splinters and on top of Taz, hooking the leg; ...1....2...., <b>NO! TAZ JUST KICKS OUT! </b>Taz BARELY kicked out! Lynn gets up with his hands on his head. Lynn pulls Taz up and puts his head in between his legs, Jerry Lynn could be looking for a powerbomb but Taz counters with a massive back-body drop! Lynn gets up clutching his lower back. He turns around and staggers towards Taz.. <b>TAZ-PLEX! </b>Sambo Taz-Plex there from the ECW Champion! Taz falls down to the mat, he's tired. Both men are. Eventually both men begin to stir and climb to their feet around roughly the same time. They then begin to slug it out in the centre of the ring.</p><p align="left">Lynn goes for a kick but Taz blocks. Lynn leaps into the air with an enziguri but Taz ducks the attack! Taz drags Lynn to his feet into a waste-lock, Taz lifts Jerry Lynn up into the air but Lynn flips over and slips down behind Taz. Wait! What the hell?! <b>Lynn slaps the Taz-Mission in on Taz!</b>Taz begins to struggle as Lynn keeps the <font size="-1">katahajime locked in on Taz, the man who uses it as his favourite hold! Taz struggles, he slowly begins to fade as Lynn shouts the word &quot;C'mon!&quot; loudly. The fans boo, some shout &quot;Jerry! Jerry!&quot; loudly, others chant &quot;Fuck him up, Taz!&quot; loudly! Suddenly, Taz strikes Lynn with a low blow! Some of the fans begin to jeer at Taz's cheap tactics. Lynn doubles over in agony, clutching his crotch. Taz then hits Lynn with a monstrous <b>Taz-Plex, sending Lynn flying halfway across the ring! </b>Taz lifts the broken table up and throws it out of the ring before going to to the outside himself and going under the apron. Taz retrieves ANOTHER table. Remember what happened last time, this could REALLY work against the Human Suplex Machine. Taz throws the table into the ring ring and follows.

He sets him up for another Taz-Plex, but Lynn counters with a knee to the mid-section! Taz doubles over, Lynn lifts him up..<b>CRADLE PILEDRIVER! CRADLE-FUCKING-PILEDRIVER IN THE CENTRE OF THE RING!
