*Note: This episode was supposed to air on 10-26 but due to technical difficulties did not. So on 11-2 ECW aired two episodes back to back.
Joey Styles opens the show from the Eagle’s nest and runs down the card for tonight and hypes the ‘November to Remember’ card. “Ironman” Tommy Cairo has a shoot fight against Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan is sitting in a lifeguard chair and he talks about his cage match against Abdullah the Butcher that took place at Bloodfest. We see some of that match as well as he match against Gino Caruso from the same day. Sabu and Hawk take on Terry Funk and a partner of his choice. The Tag Team Titles are also on the line. A rematch of last week’s main event between Tommy Dreamer and Tazmaniac has just been added. Johnny Gunn takes on Mr. Hughes. Hughes is in the locker room. Hughes talks about some of his past exploits in the WCW and WWF. Hughes says Gunn will not get up out of the ring.
Bad Breed vs. Don E. Allen & Chad Austin, ref Jim Molineaux
Allen and Axl Rotten start off. Axl beats on Allen and then tags off to Ian Rotten. Ian with a full nelson suplex and then he allows Allen to make a tag. Austin comes in and hits a drop kick but gets caught after attempting a top rope crossbody. Ian runs with him and slams him into the corner and throws him out of the ring. Ian comes off the apron with a clothesline to the floor and tags Axl back in. Axl comes off the second rope with a spin kick. Ian with a double underhook DDT and Axl comes off the top with a elbow drop. Ian goes up and Axl launches him off the top and Bad Breed pick up the victory in 3.28
Jason is backstage and he lets us know that he has been scouting the best talent in the world. They show a clip of him talking with Hunter Q. Robbins III about taking over the contract of Tony “Hitman” Stetson and Johnny Hotbody. He then tries to talk to Sandman and Peaches but gets kicked out of their locker room. He gives Angel his card and she asks him if she has money. Pretty sure she just offered him sex. He goes to Mr. Hughes who also immediately asks him if he has money. Maybe for the same reason that Angel did? Warlord is next and he just tells Jason to leave him alone. Jason drives off with Angel in his car.
Rockin’ Rebel vs. Chris Michaels, ref Jim Molineaux
Match is joined in progress as Rebel clotheslines Michaels on the floor. In the ring he hits a DDT and piledriver. Rebel refuses to make the pin and brings a chair into the ring. Rebel throws the ref to the ground and goes to hit Michaels with it but stops for some reason and then Sal Bellomo shows up and chases him away. Joey is very excited to see Sal back as we go to commercial.
Back from break we go to Joey in the Eagle’s nest and he is still super excited with a giant smile on his face and is shaking with excitement as they go to another commercial
Back to Joey and he brings as back to some of the recent activities of JT Smith. We also see clips from the Dangerous Alliance formation and break up. Paul E. is in the locker room and he talks about the Blue Jays beating the Phillies in the World Series. He then goes on to talk trash about Sherri and Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas. He says that they are not out of the Dangerous Alliance but are on probation and they just have to beg to be leg back in. Paul then goes to talking about the tag team match at November to Remember. Paul does a great Terry Funk impression and says that they are going to talk the TV title from Funk.
Tod Gordon is at ECW Headquarters. Gordon says that Sal Bellomo has not passed his medical test and has not been given permission to wrestle by the athletic commission. However he is allowing a unsanctioned chair match at November to Remember.
Badd Company vs. “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka & “Magnificent” Don Muraco, John Finnegan
The Public Enemy attack Badd Company with chairs in the aisle way before the match even starts. Bad Breed show up and attack PE and they fight into the back. Snuka and Muraco are awarded the match by forfeit. Afterwards they show a replay of the entire thing.
Matty is in the House and he’s not sorry if tonight’s show offended anyone.
Public Enemy are hanging out in the streets and they are talking about Badd Company and how they are going to win the war between the two teams.
Joey talks about something that happened between Sherri and Madusa at a convention last week and we see some stills. The two women will go at it at November to Remember.
Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas (w/ Sherri Martel) vs. JT Smith (w/ Terry Funk), ref Jim Molineaux
Douglas goes after the knee to start the match. Smith tries to fight back with some headbutts but Douglas cuts him off and goes back to the knee. Douglas locks in a figure four and Funk throws in the towel. Smith catches it and throws it back in Funk’s face but its to late and Douglas retains at 3.42. Afterwards Funk gets in the ring and starts slapping Smith with the towel. Funk takes off his boot and starts beating on Smith with it.
My thoughts on the show…
Not too much interesting going on with tonight’s show besides the Funk heel turn. Don’t bother with this one as there is nothing worth seeing, thumbs down.
