1.) There were zero original matches aired on the program.
1.) The show is mainly a highlight and recap show of November to Remember. The show started off with Terry Funk appearing and walking through the crowd at the pay per view with the fans going nuts for him.
2.) Lance Storm cuts a promo saying he wasn’t surprised he won against Jerry Lynn at the pay per view. Storm says he wins all of his matches and says you can expect to see the best match on the card when he competes. It’s all because he is from Calgary.
3.) Backstage, the Triple Threat cut a promo about November to Remember and what happened. Shane Douglas says you don’t have to like them but you have to admit that he isn’t a liar. Douglas showed no favoritism when he was the color commentator. Apparently, this was taped prior to the match because he is saying that Taz, Sabu and Rob Van Dam will fail agains tt them. Douglas says they will win and they will lose, simple as that.
4.) Axl Rotten, Masato Tanaka and Balls Mahoney cut a promo about being broken men. He says they are ashamed and embarrassed because they aren’t healthy enough to compete on pay per view due to injuries. Rotten says he has had heart since he made his debut in ECW. They aren’t going to be stopped by the Dudley Boys. Rotten says they don’t care about winning belts but rather giving a receipt to the Dudley Boys. For the record, they did compete.
5.) New ECW World Tag Team Champions Balls Mahoney and Masato Tanaka cut a promo with Axl Rotten doing the talking. Rotten says they have been brought together as a unite to combat the Dudley Boys. Rotten puts over his team as being sick bastards and puts them over as the new champions to end the segment.
6.) They actually show whole segment involving Tommy Dreamer and Terry Funk from the pay per view. Terry Funk calls Tommy Dreamer an asshole and shoves him. Funk attacks Dreamer when he turns around because he will never strike Funk.
It’s a fine recap show for the pay per view as it gave us everything we needed to know. Lets get back to the original footage starting next week.
Thanks for reading.
