End of show
My Take: Bell’s attempted “tough guy” face is actually pretty funny. It seemed like a really forced attempt to be a tough guy. Anyway, the match with Mahoney wasn’t anything great. I didn’t understand why the referee restricted weapon usage but allowed Mahoney to hit Bell with a chair. That didn’t make much sense to me.
I thought the tag team match was pretty basic and boring. I didn’t like the finish because it was pretty much the same thing that happened in the first match. Not a good start to the house show.
Well, I think it is pretty obvious the first part of this show has sucked. Nova in my opinion is a sleeper in ECW. The guy has loads of talent and is apparently over with the crowd. Why he continues to be just placed in the under card and working rather dull and boring matches with someone like Wesley is something I don’t understand. Hopefully things will pick up with the tag title match next!
This match marks the return of Super Crazy. He hadn’t been involved with ECW for several months. The match was actually a decent contest despite not going really all that long. It wasn’t a fabulous match or a great match that I was hoping for but it is a good start to having the rest of the show not suck like the first three matches.
New Jack/Blue Boy’s match/brawl segment was pretty much a lame segment. It was just like all of New Jack’s matches which sees Jack just beating his opponent down with various weapons as his music continues to play. For a rather big house show crowd, this show is overall pretty bad so far.
When they actually wrestled in the six man tag match it was fun. However, I didn’t like Sandman’s part in the match. I know the guy is usually drunk when he competes but it seemed like on this show he was over the top drunk to a point where he couldn’t put on a good show and didn’t really care about the match.
I thought something was off about the Kash/Diamond match so I didn’t give it a great rating. It was a fine match but something just didn’t click with it. I like both Diamond and Kash but I just think they shouldn’t be wrestling each other on a consistent basis.
Corino/Anderson was a solid contest even with the interference. Corino and Anderson work very well with each other and it showed here. Also, in a rare case during his ECW run, Steve Corino did not bleed. Also, in my opinion the World Championship match should always main event. Even with a surprise debut of Scott Hall, I believe this match should be considered a bigger deal than Scott Hall. That’s just my opinion though. I mean, people paid for the show before they knew Scott Hall was debuting on the show.
A decent main even match. I was happy to see Jerry Lynn pick up the win over Credible and Rhino since Hall isn’t going to be in ECW apart from his two appearances. I can’t really complain about the match, it wasn’t bad.
Overall, I was entertained by five matches, really. Their wasn’t any standout matches or anything like that but their were a few solid bouts that made the viewing of the show something I didn’t regret doing. Of course, their was some junk and some really bad junk (Jack/Boy) but it was overall a decent house show I thought.
Thanks for reading.
