Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #386 (16/09/2000)

Hello You!

The mammoth tapings from the Hammerstein Ballroom are now behind us and hype has already started for the Anarchy Rulz pay per view on the 1st of October 2000. I’m sure ECW will try and advance some angles over the next couple of weeks of programming to get us all jazzed for the eventual pay per view event.

Let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: ECW on TNN (15/09/2000)

Hello You!

Yes, I’m doing a rare episode of ECW on TNN, mainly because I’ve never actually watched the TV version of the Main Event before and I wanted to see how it held up in that form. I’ve seen it on fan-cam before, but never with the commentary and whatnot.

We’ll be back to normal with Hardcore TV tomorrow unless there’s an especially big match on TNN that I feel like watching. That being said, I don’t think the show even lasts that much longer after this when the WWF comes over with Raw, so the TNN era is probably not far off from ending anyway.

So without further ado, let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #385 (09/09/2000)

Hello You!

Last week we enjoyed some great matches from the ECW Tag Team Title Tournament at the Hammerstein Ballroom, but sadly they decided to finish that one off on TNN, meaning we have to enjoy some stuff from Night Two on the 26th of August instead. I do actually own both nights of this double header (Called “Ballroom Blitz” by RF Video) but it’s only fan-cam footage. Maybe when we finally reach the end of these Hardcore TV reviews I can blow the whole thing off with a review of both nights? I’m sure I have the VHS’ somewhere (Oh yes, that’s how far back it was when I got them)

Anyway, chins up and all that, let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #383 (26/08/2020)

Hello You!

This is the last Hardcore TV until we start seeing footage from the Hammerstein shows on the 25th and 26th of August. Today we’re getting footage from the ECW Arena show, with Scotty Anton Vs Steve Corino as a feature bout.

Corino is due to be getting a shot at Justin Credible on the 26th of August, so they will likely want to make him look strong here so that fans are interested in him challenging for the belt.

Let’s see if they succeed as we watch some chuffing wrestling!

Hello You!

More ECW Hardcore TV, as we are just a couple of weeks away from a big pair of shows at the Hammerstein Ballroom.

Last week was a decent show, with a strong Main Event between Rob Van Dam and Kid Kash. RVD tops the bill again this week with Balls Mahoney. Will he deliver again?

Let’s watch some chuffing wrestling and find out!

Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #380 – 05/08/2000

Hello You!

I wouldn’t go as far to say that Justin Credible’s Title run has gotten “good” as such, but he’s had a couple of fun matches the past couple of weeks, so he’s got that to hang his hat on at least.

I’ll be interested to see what he does this week. Let’s watching some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: ECW Heatwave 2000 (16/07/2000)

Hello You!

ECW have done a decent 6 weeks or so of hype for this show so I’m actually looking forward to it. Hopefully the show delivers. There are certainly some matches here that have the potential for being good provided they get enough time and everyone’s performances are on point.

Let’s see whether ECW’s big event of the summer will be a sizzling success or a blasé burnout.

I needed a week off due to all the horrible shite going on in wrestling but don’t worry, I’m sure the death rattle of ECW on Sci-Fi will cheer me up. Tonight, it’s finally The Homecoming Finale and we get a dramatic video package to pretend this hasn’t been boring crowds senseless these past few weeks.
