ECW highlight video with “Little Drummer Boy” playing. Clips from Holiday Hell are shown. Nice to actually see some of the action.
Joey Styles welcomes us to the show and brings out his color commentator for the night Santa Claus. Fans know what’s up and immediately chant for 911. Santa throws out some presents until 911 and Paul E. Dangerously come out and Santa gets chokeslammed. The Pitbulls hit the ring and we get right into our first match.
Pitbulls (w/ Jason) vs. 911 (w/ Paul E Dangerously) ref John Finnegan
Suplex by the Pitbulls. Fans chant “911” as they want a double chokeslam to end this quickly. Pitbull 2 with a slam and then he press Pitbull 1 up and drops him on 911. 911 fights back and goes for a chokeslam on Pitbull 2. Jason breaks it up. 911 turns his attention to Jason and it allows the Pitbulls to get him with a double chokeslam. Almost 3. Another big “911” chant. Chokeslam to Jason from the apron into the ring. 911 breaks through a double clothesline hits a double chokeslam and gets the pin in 2.56.
At the next Arena show on January 7th Taz, Sabu and 911 take on Tag Team Champions Public Enemy, Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit in a Handicap Anything Goes Match.
Joey tells us that a bunch of new markets have picked up TV. Woman says that on the 14th and 16th of January ECW is hitting Florida and Sandman will take on Cactus Jack.
In the locker room Bad Breed make fun of the Pitbulls for losing to just one guy. Pitbulls attack and the teams are pulled apart.
We go back to last week and see everything that happened with Cactus Jack, Sandman, “Ironman” Tommy Cairo and Tommy Dreamer. All of this leads us to our main event tonight.
“Ironman” Tommy Cairo (w/ “Virgin Princess” Angel) & Sandman (w/ Woman) vs. Tommy Dreamer & Cactus Jack ref John Finnegan
Cairo gets 3 minutes for his entrance. I expect that to mean Sandman gets 15. Only five for his entrance but then we also cut to commercial and skipped ahead to Jack before Sandman was actually introduced so that could have been another minute or two. Cactus and Dreamer hit the ring and go after their enemies. Cactus with lots of weapon shots. Dreamer puts on a goalie mask and headbutts Cairo. Cairo goes low. Cactus nails Sandman with a chair a few times. Dreamer back drops Cactus onto Sandman and Cairo. Dreamer dives next but goes splat. Sandman with a chair to Cactus. Sandman with a flying back elbow in the ring. Jack goes to the floor to check on Dreamer. Sandman with a suplex. Sandman with a leg drop off the top. Dreamer in the ring now and he hits a low blow on Cairo. Sandman suplexes a table onto Cactus. Sandman slams Jack on the floor. They all brawl on the floor. Back into the ring and it becomes an actual tag match with Dreamer and Sandman in the ring. Sandman with a side slam and body slam. He goes up and drops a leg. Piledriver spikes Dreamer for 2 but Cactus breaks it up. All four brawl in the ring. Cairo picks up Jack but Cactus fights out and hits a DDT for the win in 9.17. The fight continues after the match. Dreamer goes after Sandman with the cane. Woman jumps on him so he goes after her but she throws Angel in the way and leaves. Jack gets on the mic and tells Tommy not to do Dreamer gives Cactus the can and then he nails her with it himself.
Styles talks about the upcoming ECW events. Styles says that Steve Richards has become obsessed with Johnny Polo. Joey says according to Richards Polo has left the wrestling industry and has become the official groupie tester of Pearl Jam. Recently Richards dressed as Scotty Flamingo and went by the name Steve Flamingo. We see the end of this match against Dan Harris from December 16 at the Fieldhouse in Hamburg, Pa.
PE are at Rockefeller Center and they steal stuff. “Flyboy” Rocco Roc even convokes Johnny Grunge to steal the tree. Ha….Ha.
My thoughts on the show
We got some Holiday Hell stuff which was nice. The tag match was decent enough. I love 911 but any match that is more then just a chokeslam is painful to watch. Gearing up for Raven’s debut which should bring some good things with it.
