Some editing problems I guess as the first five or so minutes are the same from last week with all the highlights from the week before that.
Jason is in the shower and for some reason an ECW camera shows up. He doesn’t say much.
Tod Gordon is in his office and he’s freaking out about ECW being out of control and the fans wanting to know what he’s going to do to stop it. Gordon says instead of stopping it he’s going to try to top it! Gordon runs down the March 5th card.
Jimmy Snuka, Rockin’ Rebel & Pitbull (w/ Hunter Q Robbins & Jason) vs. Tommy Dreamer, Sal Bellomo & “Ironman” Tommy Cairo ref John Finnegan
Pitbull and Cairo start it off and Pitbull hits a russian leg sweep and belly to belly suplex. Cairo getting worked over and PItbull hits a snap suplex. Cairo reverses an irish whip and hits a powerslam. Spin kick and Cairo tags Sal. They face team tags back and forth a few times until Rebel and Sal end up in the ring together. Rebel takes control and tags Pitbull back. This has been 6 minutes and is making me want to murder myself. Sal gets doubled and triple teamed in the corner a bit. Snuka finally comes in after 7 and a half minutes. Sal comes back and slams Snuka allowing him to tag Dreamer. Rebel and Pitbull come in the ring and “hold Snuka back”. Joey screaming about how Snuka could easily get away from everyone if he really wanted a piece of Dreamer. Snuka leaves the ring and it;s now Pitbull and Dreamer. Both teams each get the advantage for a bit. Bellomo ends this at 12.40 after a splash on Rebel. All three winners get beat down after the match. Cairo and Dreamer are able to recover and chase everyone off as they beat on Sal.
Matty in the House is with Jason. Jason talks about how a few years ago when he was trying to break into wrestling and Hawk and Animal tried to break his neck with the doomsday device. Jason rips off his suit and gets very angry and begins to yell. Jason time we have seen Jason so bent out of shape. Jason says that Hawk did it because he was jealous. He says the next time Hawk sees him he will be dressed up again and will have his composer about himself. He just needed to get this off his chest. Jason says he has a surprise for Hawk on the 5th. A pretty intense and out of character interview from Jason. I enjoyed it.
Sabu & 911 (w/ Paul E Dangerously) vs. Bad Breed
Sabu hits the ring ahead of his partner and goes after Bad Breed. They brawl and then 911 chokes out both Bad Breed and gets DQed in 2.18. After the match Sabu attacks until he is dragged to the back by 911 and a masked man.
Shane Douglas “Are You Gonna Go My Way” video package airs.
Tag Team Champions Kevin Sullivan & Tazmaniac (w/ Woman) vs. Bruise Brothers
Ron and Don Harris attack in the aisle and they brawl all over the place. Multiple refs get knocked out. Sullivan gets hit with a big boot and Tazmaniac nails a german suplex. Double pin in 2.52. The Bruise Brothers take the belts Sullivan and Tazmaniac meet them in the aisle. Public Enemy sneak out and steal the belts and bring them to the back.
Jay Sulli is with PE backstage. PE says the belts are theres now. The other two teams show up and they all argue over the belt.
My thoughts on the show
Fuck did that six man suck and take forever. I really liked the Jason promo and the tag brawl at the end was fun.
