The Story So Far...

- In early 2005 Vince McMahon fired Paul Heyman for disrespecting WWE on a radio show. After a month of hatred, Vince got in touch with Paul Heyman and offered a fresh start. Paul Heyman denied Vince's requests and the two had a heated confrontation on a TV show which was not scripted. Paul E. took McMahon to court to fight for the rights for ECW copyrights. Heyman won and decided to re-open ECW. He recruited many WWE stars from Vince most noteably RVD, Tazz, Rhyno, The Dudleyz, all of them who were more loyal to Heyman than to McMahon.

- Within a month Paul was close to re-debuting ECW on Television after making two successful bids. He made 2 exclusive deals with 2 of the biggest TV networks available. On a monday night prime time slot, ECW would have a new show called SLAM that would be broadcast LIVE on FOX. It was now time for another Monday Night War. The second show was an early evening show each saturday on the USA Network. They decided to choose ECW over WWE because of the buyrates that the ECW's One Night Stand had and the ratings of WWE that were slowly going down. Heyman decided to had some history to the new ECW by naming the show Hardcore TV. Before the ECW opened, Paul Heyman received a phone call from Jerry Jarrett to take the booker job of Vince Russo ( who was never really fired ). Heyman denied Jarrett's request and he recruited Vince Russo who also recruited some NWA:TNA and ROH superstars to written contracts for the ECW. Russo now owns 10 % shares in ECW while Heyman owns the other 90 %. With ECW now about to start a war with WWE, TNA and ROH, to debut their new television shows, now to start the WAR. It's time to show the world what ECW stands for : EXTREME CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING !

- ECW starts with much more money with some new sponsors like 1-800-Collect, Acclaim, Yahoo and Budweiser. Older wrestlers came back and didn't ask for a pay raise to come. ECW is now back with only one goal : Stay ECW. In less than 2 weeks, ECW will have their first show since January 7th 2001. Fans from all around the country will now be able to say EC-Dub as loud as they want, because ECW is BACK !

Raven : Refreshing your memory ?

Tommy Dreamer : Yeah. I kinda lost hope about that ECW thing.. But now, it's here and I'm gonna appreciate it from the beginning 'til the end.

Raven : Let's hope that the end won't come too soon, if you know what I mean !

Tommy Dreamer : No, I don't understand what you're trying to told me.

Bill Alfonso : Because you're..

Rob Van Dam : ROB ! VAN ! DAM !

Joey Styles : Welcome everyone to the first ever ECW SLAM ! My name is Joey Styles and along with me is my broadcast collegue, Cyrus The Virus. Cyrus, welcome back in ECW !

Cyrus The Virus : It's great to be back here Joey and I'm sure you'll agree with me that ECW is far from dead with all the new acquisitions from Paul Heyman and Vince Russo.

Joey Styles : With the wrestlers who were stolen from WWE, TNA, ROH and other indy promotions as well as former ECW wrestlers who decided to come back in the ring, we have a great roster for the new ECW.

Cyrus The Virus : Paul E. wouldn't be about what you said.. It's not the new ECW.. It's the ECW that rise from the grave and tonight, you'll see only a small part of what ECW truly is : EXTREME !

Joey Styles : We have a great card for you tonight with 6 matches. In the main-event, you'll see 4 for the best ECW wrestlers go at it in a Fatal Four Way to determine the new ECW Heavyweight Champion. With The Franchise Shane Douglas, The Innovator of Violence Tommy Dreamer, Hardcore Legend Cactus Jack and The Whole FUCKING show Rob Van Dam, we are sure to have a new champion tonight between those 4 guys !

Cyrus The Virus : Plus, the debut of the tag team tournament between 9 teams with 6 of them who will be wrestling tonight. The first match between The Backseat Boys, Trent Acid and Johnny Kashmere against Nunzio and James Gibson as well as Second City Saints, the team of CM Punk and Colt Cabana. In the other match, the best ECW tag team to ever step foot in the ring, The Dudley Boyz will face the team of Rhyno and Tajiri and 2 members of the bWo : Nova and The Blue Meanie.

Joey Styles : We'll have the return to the ring of the Human Suplex Machine Taz who will square off with one of the member of the Hart Family : Teddy Hart who accepted the open challenge from Taz just to make a name for himself.

Cyrus The Virus : And for the first time ever, The Phenomenal One A.J. Styles and The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels will face each other in their ECW debut tonight. The two faced each other so many times in the past but tonight, they're taking it to the extreme in ECW !

Joey Styles : And the first match since January '97 will be Sabu against The Sandman. We know that Bill Alfonso will be in Sabu's corner and that it will be a...

[ Paul Heyman's theme song ]

Paul Heyman : Welcome to the return of the ECW ! As you may know, myself and Vince Russo are partners in the re-opening of the federation. Russo cannot be here tonight but heck, who really cares anyway ? He just has 10 % of the company ! So Russo, I know you can't hear what I'm saying now but if you do here's what I say about our partnership : FUCK YOU !

[ The crowd cheers for Heyman. ]

Paul Heyman : As far as tonight's show is concerned I'm making some changes to the card. The Tag Team Tourney won't be a 9-team tournament. Instead, it will be a 8-team tournament with 3 of the first 4 matches will take place tonight. bWo will face the Dudleys, Backseat Boys against Nunzio & Gibson and Second City Saints against Rhyno & Tajiri. And the first match of Slam will still be Sabu against The Sandman.. But it will be a BARBEDWIRE MATCH !

[ Crowd starts chanting ' EC-Dub '. ]

Paul Heyman : Have a nice show everyone !

Overall Rating : 82 %.

Sabu w/ Bill Alfonso versus The Sandman

Barbedwire ropes match

Intense match that saw many barbedwire spots with a lot of kendo stick and chair shots. Sandman was going on the third rope with his kendo stick but Alfonso distracted him so Sabu could have done a Body Press Slam to the mat. Sabu jumped on the third rope and grabbed the chair that Fonzie gave him to do his Arabian Facebuster to get the 3 count and the win.

Christopher Daniels : Oh, he'll be impressed, trust me !

I make the shows around here, not guys like Cactus Jack. That guy is an has-been and will never be able to win this title in the federation. Tonight, Mister Tuesday Night will reign supreme with the ECW Heavyweight Championship around my waist. Is that clear Cactus Jack ? And while I'll be champion, you'll never be able to have a title shot because you just DON'T deserve it. The only person who deserves it around it is me :

A.J. Styles on the shelf ?

At the end of last night's Slam, ECW informers to ld ECWnewsonline.com that the Phenomenal One left the building on crutches with a huge amount of tape of his left knee. Many people wonders that A.J. Styles won't be able to wrestle for the next month, compromising his fued with The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels. We'll post more info on Styles' condition as soon as we get them.

I see where your coming from, and I apologize for my comments, it just really urked me at the time. I really do apolize.

Haha...I was just joking I wasn't really offended, I admit I dont know much about ECW...my knowledge of wrestling goes to about WWF 1998 to WWE 2003. But recently I've been trying to catch RAW and SMACKDOWN...nothing too interesting from what I've seen...except Im liking Eddie Guerrero's character.

- We learned from the FOX website that they were moving the ECW show on their network to a late evening timeslot each tuesday night. Going head-to-head with WWE cost ECW a lot of viewers. But ECW assured that this will return to their original time slot as soon as possible !


- A.J. Styles was seen still walking on his crutches and when we asked him what was the plan about ECW, he told us : Wait for Slam. Adding that he would be on the show but not in a wrestling capacity. He is scheduled to be back in time for ECW first pay-per-view since the return : Barely Legal.

Bryan Danielson's TV title run.

- The word backstage is that young Bryan Danielson impressed Paul Heyman and the booking commitee in house shows and was given the title. This was changed only minutes before the match officially got under-way. The rumor says that CM Punk was supposed to win the title but Punk told management that he would have liked best to run after the title instead of having it right now in a Battle Royal. Expect a long fued between Punk and Danielson for the TV Title.

Cactus Jack / RVD feud.

- With two of the biggest draws of the company in a feud, expect them to have a lot of airtime to give the rivaltry a good push for the future. These wrestlers are two of the hottest draws in the wrestling business and the ECW is proud to have them under their roof !

If you're willing to make that Danielson / Punk as long as I think, that feud for the Television Title might become one of your major feud, which would be an awesome move from you !

These two make some main-event quality kind of match.

I'm looking foward that one more than RVD / Cactus Jack one. :blink:

A.J. Styles : How could I fight.. This guy almost broke my leg in half ! I'll wait for Barely Legal to be at 100 % !

Christopher Daniels : If you make it to Barely Legal ! Because I am not here to answer any question about the reasons for my actions. I did it and I'm proud of it ! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have other things to do !

[ Daniels walks out of the ring but Styles catches his arm before he can pass the ropes. Daniels returns inside the ring and faces off with Styles in the middle of the ring. Daniels starts laughing and KICKS Styles on the his left knee ! Styles is in MAJOR pain right here ! Daniels goes under the ring and gets two chairs. He puts one under Styles's leg and takes the other in his hands and he is going to JUMP from the third rope ! But Jerry Lynn enters the ring to make the save ! He punches Daniels down and helps Styles to get up before getting hit by a chairshot on the back of his head. Daniels takes the microphone and starts to talk. ]

Christopher Daniels : So, you wanna play the super-hero ? Fine with me. Be ready, because at Hardcore TV, it's going to be Jerry Lynn against Christopher Daniels !

Joey Styles : WOAH ! Huge match announced over here !

Best match since the return of the ECW. Punk used a lot of cheap shots during the match but Danielson was able to pull off the win and get his first title defense. The ending of the match was CM Punk arguing with the referee and Danielson doing a School Boy for the win. Nice pure wrestling match.
