ECW on TNN – October 6, 2000: Finally

ECW on TNN Date: October 6, 2000 Location: Roy Wilkins Auditorium, St. Paul, Minnesota Attendance: 4,600 Commentators: Joey Styles, Joel Gertner We’ve finally arrived here and this show can’t wrap up fast enough. Raw is on the same channel, the show is turning into a bunch of previously aired matches and the stories aren’t interesting. […]

Anarchy Rulz 2000 (2014 Redo): He’s Not Rob Van Dam

Anarchy Rulz 2000 Date: October 1, 2000 Location: Roy Wilkins Auditorium, Saint Paul, Minnesota Attendance: 4,600 Commentators: Joey Styles, Joel Gertner The card does seem to be a major improvement in some of ECW’s problem areas. While there’s nothing that is going to save the company in one night, this is a good step for […]

ECW on TNN – September 29, 2000: Last Week Tonight

ECW on TNN Date: September 29, 2000 Location: The Icenter, Salem, New Hampshire Attendance: 1,500 Commentators: Joey Styles, Joel Gertner The show is on borrowed time as Monday Night Raw has debuted on the same network so this episode really doesn’t mean anything. It’s the go home show for Anarchy Rulz but at the same […]

ECW on TNN – September 22, 2000: Dudley Do-Right Wouldn’t Stand For This

ECW on TNN Date: September 22, 2000 Location: Hershey Centre, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada Attendance: 5,000 Commentators: Joel Gertner, Joey Styles You really can see that this show is in trouble and the fact that Monday Night Raw is debuting on TNN three days after this show doesn’t make things look promising. They don’t have a […]

ECW on TNN – September 15, 2000: Twenty Minutes???

ECW on TNN Date: September 15, 2000 Location: Hammerstein Ballroom, New York City, New York Commentators: Joel Gertner, Joey Styles I’m hoping we can wrap up the final four episodes of this show in peace instead of the wild chaos that was last week’s show. We’re getting closer to Anarchy Rulz and this week we […]

ECW on TNN – September 8, 2000: ECW All In One

ECW on TNN Date: September 8, 2000 Location: Hammerstein Ballroom, New York City, New York Commentators: Joel Gertner, Joey Styles We’re still in New York and that’s a good thing based on the atmosphere alone. It’s a double title defense week as the new Tag Team Champions Tajiri and Mikey Whipwreck will defend against the […]

Backlash 2002 (2016 Redo): Feel The Sleeping Power Of Hulkamania!

Backlash 2002 Date: April 21, 2002 Location: Sprint Center, Kansas City, Missouri Attendance: 12,489 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the first pay per view after the Brand Split and it really is a tale of two shows at this point. Raw is absolutely horrendous at the moment with an unmotivated Undertaker vs. Steve Austin […]

Smackdown – April 18, 2002: The Hogan Problem

Smackdown Date: April 18, 2002 Location: Compaq Center, Houston, Texas Commentators: Tazz, Michael Cole It’s the go home show for Backlash and since this is Smackdown, we have a tag team main event which doesn’t have a lot to do with the pay per view. In this case it’s HHH/Hulk Hogan vs. Chris Jericho/Kurt Angle […]

Lucha Underground – September 14, 2016: Lucha Boom

Lucha Underground Date: September 14, 2016 Location: Lucha Underground Temple, Boyle Heights, California Commentators: Matt Striker, Vampiro Tonight is about focusing on a midcard story for a change with a main event of Killshot vs. Marty the Moth Martinez in a Weapons of Mass Destruction match. It’s quite different to see a match at that […]

Ring of Honor TV – September 14, 2016: Building With Japan

Ring of Honor Date: September 14, 2016 Location: Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall, Las Vegas, Nevada Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Kevin Kelly All-Star Extravaganza is in a few weeks and we only know a few matches so far. These monthly pay per views are really hard to book when Ring of Honor has so many […]
