911 (w/ Paul E Dangerously) vs. Mikey Whipwreck & Dan Carson ref Jim Molineaux (1994-03-27)
911 walks right up to his opponents and chokeslams then both. Then he does it again to Carson and pins him in .31. Mikey gets one and 911 forces the ref to count him out. The fans of course think it’s the coolest thing ever. I couldn’t agree more. The chokeslams continue. 911 goes after the ref but Paul E pulls him off.
Opening video. This one features TONS of 911 chokeslams. That makes me so happy. Ha in one of the clips he chokeslams some camera guy out of his shoes. That’s awesome.
Joey Styles is your host for Eastern Championship Wrestling. Last week on ECW TV learned that at When Worlds Collide there will be a Mixed Tag Singapore Canning Match with Sandman and Woman taking on “Ironman” Tommy Cairo and Peaches. We get a run down of the feud so far. Included in the package is an interview filmed before the Ten Lashes Match from last Arena show with Sandman. Sandman says that if people are into S & M and voyeurism then all they would have to do is pay. Huh so I guess they really are going with that he’s a pimp thing.
Sandman vs. “Ironman” Tommy Cairo (w. Peaches) special ref “Wildman” Sal Bellomo Ten Lashes Match (1994-04-16)
Sandman attacks from behind before the bell and he sends Cairo to the floor. Cairo belly to backs Sandman onto a table. Sandman with a chair. Cairo with a suplex in the ring right back outside they go. Sandman with another chair shot and a suplex on the floor. Cairo suplexes Sandman onto a table and goes after him with a chair. In the ring Sandman comes off the top with an elbow but Sal takes forever to make the count and then does a super slow 2 count. Cairo recovers and hits a nice looking belly to back for the pin in 4.21. Then we see the aftermath that we also got at the end of last week. Cairo is with Peaches at Sandman’s house. Cairo talks about how him and Peaches have been hanging out. Cairo says the scars on Peaches back will go away but the scars in their hearts will not. Peaches talks about whipping Woman’s “fat” ass. She then plans on shove the cane into her. Sandman talks about how Cairo owes him thousands of dollars for the time he’s been spending with Peaches. He says they can call it even if Cairo just gives him $100.
“Surfer” Ray Odyssey vs. Eric Anderson ref Jim Molineaux (1994-03-06)
So ECW must have felt that they really needed a surfer in their company. I’m pretty sure Odyssey still have the tag on his wet suit. I guess he plans on returning it tonight. Odyssey wins after a missile drop kick and Vader splash from the second rope in 3.14.
Tazmaniac vs. Johnny Blaze Jim Molineaux (1994-03-27)
TV Champion Pitbull is on commentary with Joey. Tazmaniac with the victory after a super fall away slam in 1.44.
Tommy Dreamer versus Rockin’ Rebel and Kevin Sullivan against Jimmy Snuka has been added to the 14th.
We come back from break and Jay Sulli thanks Joey Styles and says that yes he is in the dressing room. He says this even though we didn’t see Joey say anything to him before this. Sulli wants to talk to Tazmaniac but he just storms past. Jason shows up instead.. Jason says he and Pitbull represent ECW TV and TV is supposed to be visual and pretty like him. Jason says Tazmaniac isn’t a person but a creature from a horror movie. Jason says Tazmaniac looks like a Monkey Boy Tazmaniac comes and just looks into the camera. Jason continues to talk about monkeys and Pitbull runs down from the Eagle’s Nest to make sure nothing happens. Jason continues to make fun of monkeys. Jason swings at Tazmaniac. Tazmaniac throws Jason through a wall and bites his face and Jason screams in pain. Pitbull shows up and pulls him off. Tazmaniac is foaming at the mouth and Jason is still screaming in pain and holding his face.
Terry Funk and Arn Anderson have words about their match coming up and then Pitbull and Jason with giant face bandage say on the 14th it’s their move and that their move is to destroy Tazmaniac.
My thoughts on the show
911 makes any show great. The Jason Tazmaniac stuff while the promo was a bit silly and possibly racist the ending was pretty cool and Jason sold it well. Rest was pretty useless.
