Mike Reviews: ECW Living Dangerously 2000 – 12/03/2000

Hello You!

To say the past month or so of these reviews has been a tumultuous time for ECW would perhaps be somewhat of an understatement, with a costly leg injury to Rob Van Dam causing him to have to vacate his ECW TV Title and essentially blow the Main Event scene to pieces.

With the TV Title now vacated, we will crown a new Champion tonight in a 4 man tournament, as Super Crazy takes on Little Guido and Rhino has a long awaited singles battle with The Sandman. Sadly the Quarter Finals all got crammed in to one episode of Hardcore TV (The last one I did in fact) so the matches have all been chopped to pieces to fit the allotted time. Hopefully the matches tonight at least get some time to breathe.

ECW World Champ Mike Awesome doesn’t even have a Title defence tonight, as he will instead be defending one half of his newly won Tag Team Titles with Raven against two teams in a Three Way Dance. As a result, there isn’t really a clear marquee Main Event for this show, which combined with the general way the card has been thrown together means that I am probably less hyped for this show than any I have covered since starting these reviews last year.

I actually do own the DVD version of this show from Laser Light Digital, but I couldn’t find it so I’m going to be stuck with the WWE Network version, which means there’ll be music dubbing galore. Oh well, let’s just hope some of the dubbed music is good eh?

Anyway, that’s enough of wittering from me, 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.

Mike Reviews: ECW November to Remember 1999

Hello You!

So here we are again with another ECW pay per view event of 1999. It’s been a tad hit and miss for ECW on pay per view this year, with Anarchy Rulz being good whilst Heat Wave and Hardcore Heaven were kind of just there and Living Dangerously was pretty bad. Hopefully tonight ECW can knock this one out of the park, especially as this show is supposed to be the biggest one they do all year.

I actually bought the live American pay per view version of this show years back from the dearly departed Extreme Central UK store in Manchester, which was a fantastic place to buy ECW/CZW/ROH tapes without having to faff about with arranging things online. The picture is a bit fuzzy but I get the real entrance music at least, so I’m counting it as a win.

ECW on Sci-Fi #7 07/25/2006

Tonight, ECW is honoured to present the annual Big Show vs. Kane match. There’s been more guest stars in the last few weeks of ECW than Cannonball Run.

We’re in Detroit, Michigan and the hosts are Joey Styles (nerdy scientist) and Tazz (the thing the nerdy scientist turns into when he’s bitten by a radioactive orange).
