We open with the opening of the Cactus Jack Terry Funk match.
Joey Styles brings us stills the the match and video of the chair throwing. Jeru the Damaja’s “Da Original” music video plays with clips of Tag Team Champions Public Enemy. PE are backstage after Hardcore Heaven. “Flyboy” Rocco Roc says that Terry Funk didn’t like what they have done to him. Roc says this is no longer about competition or money. This time it’s about blood. Roc says Funk would never last 5 minutes on the streets. August 27th Funks blood will be on their hands. Real good promo.
August 27th PE take on Terry Funk and Cactus Jack and an NWA World Championship Tournament.
Terry Funk and Cactus Jack are backstage. Funk cuts an accidentally hysterical promo.
Video package on one of the top seeds to the NWA Title Tournament 2 Cold Scorpio is shown. WHOOMP!
The Jason Mikey Whipwreck match is shown. Joey is back stage with new champion Jason. Jason talks about how easy it was to beat Mikey. Nothing new about the ending was said.
Paul E. Dangerously talks about how ECW is going to go worldwide and the World Championship is coming to them. Paul E is mad as hell because there’s not a man in the wrestling world that is man enough to represent the world of wrestling. He’s so mad that on August 27th he’s calling 911. Heavyweight Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas says this is not about who can kiss the most ass and but who is the best wrester. Douglas names a bunch of old champions but says as of the early 90s he can’t name any champions because Ted Turner squashed the NWA. Douglas names WCW Champions and says he you want to see old men like that you can watch WCW but if you want to see a real wrestler to watch Douglas. Shane challenges Flair and Hogan. Douglas says he will challenge Flair as NWA Champion but Flair will be to chicken shit to respond. Douglas says he will even go to Atlanta.

All the promos tonight were good. As I said I liked the Jason Mikey match but that ending AWFUL!
