TV Champion Mikey Whipwreck vs. Kevin Sullivan ref Jim Molineaux
Willie “Scoops” Watts is filling in for the “vacationing” Joey Styles. In reality Styles has left ECW do to a money dispute. Paul E Dangerously is also on commentary. Sullivan attacks before the bell. Sullivan beats the crap out of Mikey on the floor for a good 3 minutes including dropping him with a power bomb. Sullivan ties Mikey up in the tree of woe and charges with a few knees. The ref steps in to stop it and Sullivan knees him too. Sullivan gets DQed and Mikey keeps the title. 3.49 was shown as there was a commercial break during the match.
Quick promo by Champion “The Franchise” Shane Douglas during which he says he is a wrestler not an entertainer. Mr. Hughes video package. Tag Team Champions Public Enemy video package. Video packages of Terry Funk, Bruise Brothers and Tommy Dreamer air. These 8 man will meet in tonight’s main event.
Paul E is in the locker room and he is hyping June 3rd as Sabu will take on 2 Cold Scorpio. He then hypes June 24th as PE take on the Funk brothers.
Terry Funk promo talking about how he’s going to team with Dory for the first time in a decade. Funk invites all the fans out to the Arena to watch them beat up the PE.
Chad Austin vs. Keith Sheara ref John Finnegan
All they talk about during the match is how these guys are upset kids. Sheara beat Jake Roberts earlier this year at the Manhattan Center with some help from Shane Douglas. Sheara with a back body drop that sends Austin all the way around onto his stomach! Nice suplex by Sheara. Press slam by Sheara. Sheara with an irish whip. Austin leap frogs then slides out of another press slam attempt. Austin with a roll up for the win in 3.39.
Shane Douglas and Mr. Hughes are backstage and Douglas says he paid Hughes lots of money to watch his back. Hughes says that everyone that has the gold or wants the gold calls him for help. Hughes says that anyone that wants a piece of Douglas has to go through him.

Johnny Grunge gets on the mic and tells Tod Gordon he needs to come to the ring. Gordon comes to the ring and tells Funk he has to leave because they just got served papers saying he can not be in the match. Apparently PE has some type of restraining order against him. We go to commercial and come back to a giant brawl in the ring. We go back stage and Funk is in the locker room asking someone to go to the ring to help. Funk grabs JT Smith and basically drags him to the ring. Smith hits the ring and goes after the PE. PE injure the knee of Smith and Douglas comes in the ring and locks on the figure four. The ref calls for the bell at 4.55. Smith is mad and then we go to the parking lot where we are told everyone else is brawling. However we just see a bunch of fans running around. Smith nails the ref.
Sandman is with Woman and he tells “Ironman” Tommy Cairo to pay his bills! He even offers to reduce the bill to just $75. Sandman hypes a Singapore Cane on a Pole Match for June 24th.
My thoughts on the show
Bleh not a fan of this show at all. Nothing of importance going on.
