ECW On Sci-Fi #94 03/18/2008

Kane vs. Elijah Burke

We get this match even before we get told where we are (Biloxi, MS) so we must be getting a loaded (with WM hype) show.

wXw Shotgun #336-340

Shotgun is the weekly show on wXw Now, featuring an hour of the best matches from their never-ending tours of Germany with promos and skits to advance the plots and feuds. It’s comparable to ECW’s Hardcore TV because even the un-important matches are high-level indie quality.

I’ve missed all of them this year so figured I’d type up as I catch up as wXw can be rewarding if you’re paying attention. This is pretty abridged but I’ll go back to normal David Hume-levels of word count when I’m watching one show a week like a normal person.

wXw Back To The Roots XVII 01/20/18

The CZW 2005 reviews took forever to do so if I’m going to type essay-length reviews to entertain myself they may as well be about something relevant, so let’s look at the efficient German indie Westside Xtreme Wrestling instead.

ECW on Sci-Fi #92 03/04/2008

We’re in Cleveland, Ohio and the video editors earn their pay by making last week’s Chernobyl look like a mere Three Mile Island. Tonight it’s Punk vs. Chavo Part VI: The Undiscovered Country.

CZW Liberated 03/12/05

Starting with this show, CZW would begin filming interviews for the start of the DVD so newcomers would know who people were and why they were feuding. This was a great idea as the wrestlers got the chance to talk on a clear mic rather than the over-bassed arena one. Highlights:

    • BLK OUT call DJ Hyde a fat ass who runs around wearing a trash liner.
    • Mike Quackenbush promises to take the CZW Jr. Heavyweight Title to Germany to defend it.
    • Franky The Mobster calls everyone a cunt.

ECW on Sci-Fi #90 02/19/2008

We’re in San Diego, CA and Ric Flair is here to talk about being inducted into the Hall Of Fame but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to retire (he wasn’t kidding) but Elijah Burke interrupts to say he’s the new Flair. (yeah, David). Shelton Benjamin shows up to remind us all Burke & Benjamin are still a thing and to tell Flair he’s the NEW Gold Standard. It ends with Flair getting attacked until CM Punk makes the save. Basic set-up for tonight’s main event, highlight was some guy excited for Tim.

ECW on Sci-Fi #89 02/12/2008

We’re in Houston, Texas the week after the historic Gulf Of Mexico match. We get clips of Chavo being saved by scuba divers and he complains about how ill he is after falling into the disgusting Gulf. Oh and he was stung by a jellyfish which amuses some NFL-Dad type so much he gives it a standing ovation.

ECW on Sci-Fi #88 02/05/2008

We’re in Corpus Christi, Texas and Kofi Kingston has been added to the intro but I don’t see him lasting long. CM Punk starts the show to a roaring reaction to a SOLD OUT CROWD here to watch Smackdown afterwards. Punk recaps last week’s Mariachi Celebration, insisting that although he’s Straight-Edge he does like a good party and we get Dramatic Replays of El Kabong.
