1.) Cactus Jack is in the ring talking about how proud of Mikey Whipwreck he is for winning the ECW World Championship. However, he believes the fans ruined his moment and would rather be watching TBS programming. He has the instinct to slap Dreamer but he isn’t going to do that and he promises that his match with Dreamer will be the most boring match anyone has ever seen.
2.) We get the Cactus/Dreamer match but we get promos in the middle of it that completely ruins the flow of the match. Raven gets involved and attacks Dreamer, but Cactus refuses to finish off Dreamer because he doesn’t want to give the ECW fans a finish to the match. Terry Funk coms out and makes the save for Dreamer running Cactus and Raven from the ring.
3.) Konnan lets us know that he wants to earn the respect of Rey Mysterio Jr. and Psicosis.
4.) Cactus is happy he broke Tommy Dreamer’s nose and he believes that everything that has ever happened to him will now happen to Dreamer.
5.) The lucha libre tag team match is heavily clipped and just shown the high spots of the match are aired. Konnan and Rey cut off double suicide dives and win the match by count-out.
The focus of Dreamer/Cactus is fine, and the match provided wasn’t designed to be a classic but rather an advancement towards the tag team main event at November to Remember.
