Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #356 – 19/02/2000

Hello You!

Last week’s show brought the goods match quality wise thanks to an excellent Tajiri Vs Super Crazy bout, but we’re still kind of short of big matches for the upcoming Living Dangerously pay per view in March. Hopefully we’ll finally start to see that show taking shape, although ECW do have somewhat of an excuse due to Rob Van Dam’s injury throwing everything into disarray.

But anyway, less chatter, more chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

Last week’s show was heavily affected by the news that ECW TV Champ Rob Van Dam had broken his leg. We should probably be getting further updates on that this week. The injury is bad news for ECW, as they were hoping that a feud between Rob Van Dam and Mike Awesome would be a key area of promotion for them in the coming months. Here’s hoping that they can recover somehow and get the show back on track.

But anyway, less chatter, more chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

Last week was more a holdover show, where all the moving parts were kept whirring ahead of the next major storyline development. Things are going to chance a lot for ECW during this episode in fact, and sadly it’s not for the better

But anyway, less chatter, watch some chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

The highlight of the show was last week was a face off between ECW World Champ Mike Awesome and ECW TV Champ Rob Van Dam, setting up a possible Title For Title collision between the two for later down the line.

In addition, Sabu returned to ECW, only to help Awesome leave RVD and Bill Alphonso laid out. He will be in action this week against CW Anderson.

Let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

Last week’s show wasn’t that bad, as we actually got some fresh matches from the TV taping in Atlanta and, because it was shot at Centre Stage, the show actually looked quite good from a production standpoint as well.

With Guilty As Charged now behind us, we should start seeing what direction ECW wants to go in with March’s Living Dangerously pay per view looming in the distance.

Anyway, let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

Guilty As Charged 2000 is now in the bag and you can read my review of it by clicking right HERE.

In short, there were a few decent matches on the undercard and the main event of Mike Awesome Vs Little Spike Dudley was really good and well worth watching.

Normally with these post pay per view Hardcore TV’s they tend to just talk about the prior week’s event and don’t really give much in the way of new content, but maybe they’ll surprise us?

Anyway, let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: ECW Guilty As Charged 2000 – 09/01/2000

Hello You!

I wrote this up about a year ago as I didn’t plan I’d ever get this far in these ECW reviews. I’ve gone in and tightened some stuff up and added any additional bits I felt were necessary.

ECW made a big fuss in the build-up about how this was the first pay per view event of the new millennium, but it won’t mean much if the show itself isn’t any good.

Hello You!

Last week’s Hardcore TV had a fantastic main event of Mike Awesome Vs Masato Tanaka followed by a strong angle where Awesome brutally clocked Spike Dudley’s girlfriend with a lariat, thus causing her to bleed from the mouth.

With Guilty As Charged 2000 one night away, I expect we’ll be seeing a lot of last minute hype for the show. I’ve actually reviewed that show for the Blog before, so I’ll give it a once over and post it up tomorrow.

Anyway, let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

Before we go further I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Extreme New Year!

Last week’s Hardcore TV wasn’t that great from a match perspective but the Guilty As Charged pay per view on the 9th of January has been promoted pretty well, with most of the big matches booked well in advance so that the company can heat them up.

Let’s see what ECW has in mind for this week!
