1.) There were no matches on the program as it is largely a highlight show.
1.) The Pitbulls cut a promo from a sauna. They say that everyone is wondering who will win the triple threat tag match. However, whomever wins will be the losers because they will have to face them. They want Public Enemy to win the match because they want another piece of them. They promise to have unleashed violence on everyone in ECW. They are coming for the tag team championships.
2.) Tommy Dreamer cuts a promo while having his handcuffs still attached to his wrist and dried up blood on his face. Dreamer says when he beat Raven’s cronies he ended various previous Raven gimmicks. Tommy says that Raven has proven that he is hardcore. Dreamer is going to show how extreme he can be.
3.) Sandman and Woman are with Joey Styles for an interview. Sandman says that Shane Douglas has made mistakes in ECW. Sandman notes other leaders in the world who made mistakes leading to their demise. Sandman says that Douglas is doomed to repeat history of failing. Sandman doesn’t believe that Douglas will survive a beating from him. Woman says that Douglas could have came with him, which was meant in a completely different manner. Woman says that Douglas can’t be all that smart if he didn’t want to come with her.
4.) ECW World Champion Shane Douglas cuts a promo to end the show. Douglas says that he knows all about history and he isn’t going to repeat history. Douglas is taking on athletes not entertainers. Douglas says he can take Sabu and Terry Funk and keep moving forward. He is confident he can take on Sandman, as well. Douglas says he has changed to the business to being a sport. Douglas is going to still be champion when he is done with Sandman.
Well it’s clear that Sandman/Douglas is going to be the title feud moving forward, and I don’t see a match between the two of them being all that great. The angle advancement was fine this week.
