We then get video of all the chokeslams he has given since entering the company. Paul E Dangerously talks about how dialing 911 means results get done.

Back in the ring Hack fights back and gives Taz a guillotine leg drop on the apron. Taz reverses a corner whip and as Hack stumbles out he gets caught her a release german and pinned in 2.30.
We go to what happened last week after the TV Title Match between Tommy Dreamer and Sandman.

Bad Breed vs. Don E Allen & Joel Hartgood ref John Finnegan
Joey says Bad Breed has had some recently brawls with PE on house shows. The Rottens hit the ring and go right after their opponents. Ian hits a belly to back and clothesline on Allen. Axl comes in with a splash. Hartgood tags in and Ian slams him down with a dominator. Ian with a full nelson suplex and a nasty belly to back. Ian goes to the second rope and hits a splash. Axl with a reverse atomic drop than Ian comes off the top with a bulldog. Doomsday device gets the win in 5.07. After the match the Rottens each hit power bombs. This was an awesome squash.

“Superfly” Jimmy Snuka & The Pitbulls (w/ Hunter Q Robbins III & Jason) vs. The Funk Brothers & Tommy Dreamer ref Jim Molineaux
We are joined in progress and Dreamer is in the ring with Pitbull 1 and he he tags in Pitbull 2 and they beat on Dreamer. Dropkick by Pitbull 2. Snuka comes in and he stays on Dreamer hitting a fist drop from the second buckle. Eventually everyone hits the ring and they all brawl. Snuka goes up top and hits a superfly splash after the Pitbulls hit a double suplex. Dory Funk though comes in and makes the save. Snuka holds Dreamer as the Pitbulls charge for a double clothesline but Dreamer moves and Snuka gets nailed. Dreamer covers and gets the pin on Snuka. Afterwards Robbins comes in and berates Snuka. Robbins tells Snuka is his a monkey and nails breaks his cane over Snuka’s back. Robbins makes like he’s going to nail Snuka again for about 45 seconds and when he finally does swing Snuka blocks it and his a headbutt. A back breaker and superfly splash follow and hopefully this ends Robbins days in ECW. The Pitbulls return to the ring with a chair and attack Snuka. Tazmaniac hits the ring and goes after the Pitbulls. Snuka and Tazmaniac get rid of the Pitbulls and then back into each other. They turn and look like they are going to go after each other. Snuka helps helps Tazmaniac give the superfly hand signal and they hug. Joey calls it a passing of the torch. 3.53 of the match was shown.
Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, Mr. Hughes and Angel are backstage and Douglas talks about 911 chokeslamming them all. Hughes talks about how he is going to face 911 on the 13th of August.
My thoughts on the show
I really loved the Bad Breed squash and the aftermath of the six man was pretty good to. I’m really hopeful we won’t see Robbins around anymore and it almost seems like this is the end of Snuka’s run in ECW. Him joining with Robbins seemed to come out of no where and now it looks like they did it just so they could turn him face for him to leave a few months later. I assume they will book a tag match with him and Tazmaniac against the Pitbulls on his way out.
