Happy ECW Day! I almost wasn't able to do today's column, but I somehow was able to watch the show, and do the wonderful recap with the laptop. So today, FULL BLOWN ECW on TNN results to enjoy, along with some very Fine Points of ECW, along with the famous Jackson 5. Let's jump into it with some FINE POINTS!

ECW Day

Fine Points

  • ECW on TNN, last week, only had a 0.8. It just goes to show you that highlight shows DO NOT gain ratings. They went from a dwarfing 1.0 rating, then back to their Summer average. Oh well, I don't blame Paul Heyman one bit for doing his recent shows like he has. TNN doesn't give a flying fuck about ECW, so why should ECW? If the USA deal does not come through, they'll need to rely on the Hardcore TV once again.
  • Speaking of USA networks, this ECW deal won't seem a reality until the judge gets off his ass and makes this appeal final for WWF vs. USA. Ugh. If not, ECW needs to quickly move on, especially with the Fall Season just getting ready to start up. Let's hope this appeal gets finalized so that I, Mr. Tito, will know if I can still do the ECW recaps.
  • Not much going on in ECW, but I do encourage you to check out the interview on the WrestlePalooza.com Audio Show with Spike Dudley. You can listen to it by CLICKING HERE.
  • Match #1: Tajiri/Whipwreck vs. Julio/EZ Money
    Tajiri starts off pounding Julio in the corner, or whatever his name is. He takes a few shots at EZ, and then spits the green myst in some blond guy's face! Yipee! Mikey knocks that blond onto the ground, and Tajiri kills EZ with a chair. Mikey off the top, and both Mikey and Tajiri give this weird flipping move to Julio, and then a double brainbuster! 1, 2, 3!
    Winners: Tajiri and Mikey Whipwreck, clean win, via double brainbuster

    ECW on TNN intro. Joey Styles and Joel Gertner in the ring. Joel Gertner: Joel "I had my toes sucked at Statan Island, I got a back rub out in Queens, I was with this blond chick out in the Bronx, she was barely out of her late teens, double the pleasure and double the fun out in Brooklyn with these twins named Candy and Connie, but the best piece of ass was here in Manhattan, when I was looking for hooker with Mayor Julioni(sp?)" Gertner.

    Styles introduces Steve Cornino, who has Billy Corgan with him. Where's the rest of the Pumpkins at? Corgan, by the way, is walking to the ring with Corino and playing his ring music at the same time. Very nice. Styles congrats Corino for his #1 contendership. Steve said he didn't kiss anybody's ass, and he can now perform here in NY City. He talks about cheating to pin New Jack, Dusty Rhodes, and Tommy Dreamer, but he won't apologize. Corino will NOT apologize when he scores a pinfall over Justin 'the game' Credible. Lou E. Dangerously comes down to start some shit. Why? Cause he used to be a Dudley. Lou E. wants Styles/Gertner out of the ring, but they refuse until Corino suggests for them to leave. Millennium's answer to Milli Vanilli ----> Says Lou E. to Corgan. Lou E. threatens to kick everyone's asses, because he's THAT extreme. Lou E. challenges both guys, but Justin Credible comes down because he's that damn good. Corino is down, but Corgan has the cane and attacks Credible. However, Lou E. had the cell phone from Hell, and nailed Corgan. Justin Credible cuts his usual, boring promo "that's not the coolest, or just the worst ECW champ ever!"

    They show a local bar or something, and Balls Mahoney is there partying.

    Match #4: Tommy Dreamer/Jerry Lynn vs. Rhino/Justin Credible
    Rhino thrown into the guardrail by Dreamer. Brawl to the crowd, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah! ECW has repetitive brawls to the outside with Dreamer. Lynn and Credible in the ring. Spinning DDT by Lynn. No cover, thanks to Miss Herpes! Lynn spanks Francine, and my brother loves it! Superkick by Credible as Lynn tries to cradle piledrive Francine. Dreamer DDTs Credible, but gets speared by Bryan Adams Brian Clark Rhino. Dreamer takes the usual table piledriver. Spike Dudley comes in and nails Rhino with a cane. Acid Drop, again, another drug reference in wrestlng(ugh), by Spike Dudley on Rhino. However, Aldo Montoya is there with a "That's Incredible" on Spike. Lynn kicks Credible, reversals on some Tombstones, and then Jerry Lynn hits the Cradle Piledriver on Credible, and we get a clean win baby!!! No chance for Lynn to get the world title now. So sad.

    ECW on TNN Phat Stats

    Matches: 5
    Clean Wins: 5
    Screwjobs: 0
    Disqualifications: 0
    No Contests: 0

    Last Word: Great show, as they featured many great matches from the Tag Tournament last weekend. They also only showed just one Hardcore TV clipping, which makes me a proud ECW on TNN results guy!

    Of course, I knew the spoilers of this event(as I reported them last week), so you could say a bias is here. However, I enjoyed each of the matches. Anything with Dreamer, Lynn, Mikey, or Tajiri was fantastic. Other matches were good too. Just straight action and no bullshit by ECW this week, hence an

    B

    for the show. I'm still in amazement over that chairshot by CW Anderson. I predict a 1.0 for this great show, loaded with action.

    A few commercial breaks were rather misplaced this week though.

    The Jackson 5

    5. Rob Van Dam- Who do you expect would get this non wrestling spot instead, the no selling, singles Kronic Rhino? What about the Game wannabe Justin Credible? I don't think so!

    4. Tommy Dreamer- Tommy Dreamer wrestled well in this tag team tournament, selling every move like a bitch, and not just that lethal chairshot by CW.

    3. Mikey Whipwreck- Why not? His career is revitalized with the Sinister Minister, and now he's got some gold!

    2. Tajiri- For the love of God, get this man a green card for his great wrestling lately. Of course, you must earn it in some way and not by spitting green myst and giving Octopuses and T-Rantulas to ECW wrestlers. Great tag team performance this week by Tajiri.

    1. Jerry Lynn- Clean win over Justin Credible this week in the Tag Tourney earns him this top spot. Wow, you mean to tell me that ECW had Credible lose a match cleanly? Good God.

    @That's all for today's column. I'll be back, hopefully, tomorrow with the Show of the Week. So until then, just chill till the next episode!
