PDF of this diary (story related posts only) from start to November To Remember XV (2007): http://rg.to/file/e146d6dc22d44c7411c511f03cfaa98c/ECW_Worldwide.pdf.html

 

This is a fictional game world! This game began using TEW 2004 with 1994 data. As such, events in the game world are concurrent with all real world events up until July 1994. From this point on, however, all events that are referenced will be events that occurred within the world. Here are a few quick examples:

 

  1. Many talent defections took place in the 90's.
  2. WCW were bought out by WWF in 2000. Many workers joined the WWE roster, while others tried their luck in a slightly more hardcore environment.
  3. ECW are an internationally known company (currently just inside the International game parameters). Whilst appealling to a wider audience they remain true to many of their original ideals and the ECW roster still includes many of the original pioneers.
  4. Some major workers including Steve Austin, Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio Jr (you may spot others) never left ECW in the 1990's and remain as a part of the promotion. However, since the diary has begun Austin has defected to the WWF.
  5. I am the owner of ECW after I took over from Heyman in '99 and I am an occasional on-screen authority (Heyman remains as an authority figure and booker under a lifetime contract).
  6. Kurt Angle joined ECW in '97 not WWE (the "Crucifiction Incident" never happened).
  7. "Sophie Mcintosh" joined the gameworld in TEW 2004. In TEW 2005 I changed her name and picture and she's an on-screen authority with the same stats.

What shall follow is a retrospective look at what I deem to be important factors in the evolution of the gameworld and ECW. This shall be done in stages... I'm lazy, so shoot me :D.

The Franchise Players

 

http://alanwojcik.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/shane_douglas.jpg

"The Franchise" Shane Douglas

 

No list of ECW's franchise players could possibly be compiled without The Franchise himself, Shane Douglas. The sacrifices this man has made for and the effort he has given to this great company are well documented and cause for much respect. In fact, he arguably carried the promotion (with support from Sabu) from 1994-1997 and boasts the longest ever world title reign of over two years (a remarkable 736 days from January 15 1995 - January 21 1997)!

 

His feud with Sabu throughout 1995 helped propel ECW to new heights and culminated in a Barbed Wire Deathmatch at "F**k The Big Two" in November 1995, which he narrowly won thanks to assistance from Chris Benoit. His next rivalry with Raven was one of the greatest in the promotion's history, spanning over a year and showcasing many cutting-edge title matches. This led to what many believe was the best hardcore match of all time at ECW's first pay-per-view, Barely Legal, on January 21 1997. Raven, a babyface at the time, with assistance from Douglas' old nemesis Sabu, was finally able to end the legendary reign of The Franchise.

 

After this defeat, Douglas took a hiatus from wrestling due to "personal issues" that never were discussed with the media. In 2001, after a four year absence, he returned as a face to challenge Raven in a one-off title match at Hardcore Heaven - he was unsuccesful. He then headed to Japan, achieving moderate success with both WMF and AJPW, only to return in 2006 at Anarchy Rules to defeat Rhino for the World Television Championship.

 

Now seemingly retired from active competition (but not before revisiting his feud with Raven one last time), Douglas has become the manager and mentor of "The New Franchise" Paul Burchill. Under Douglas' guidance, Burchill seems destined for greatness.

Sabu

 

One of the craziest bastards in the history of the sport. There is seemingly nothing that the Human Highlight Reel will not do to entertain an ECW crowd. His time with the company has not exactly been the smoothest, though, his fallings out with both Paul Heyman and current ECW owner, Charlie Pag, are well documented. However, regardless of his relations and actions outside of the ring, he remains nothing short of a legend inside it.

 

His afore-mentioned feud with "The Franchise" Shane Douglas lasted from the end of 1993 right up until his nemesis' departure from the promotion in 1997 and is universally regarded as a classic.

 

Although his run in the promotion has since become less iconic, he is commonly described as the backbone of the roster. Indeed, whenever a transitional champion is required, it's Sabu; whenever an incumbent talent needs "the rub", it's the Human Highlight Reel who provides it yet always seems to come back stronger.

 

The question is how much longer this seemingly ageless wonder can really go on. It's no secret that his ring-work has become far more sloppy over the years but the fans evidently still adore him. Whatever his future holds it will be with ECW!

Raven

 

Douglas' arch nemesis is the next logical icon to discuss. What Douglas achieved in the '90s as the figurehead of ECW, Raven continued to the new millenium and beyond. He holds the record for the most amount of World Title reigns at six (narrowly beating Douglas and Sabu who both hold five).

 

His heel turn at 1997's November To Remember, when he betrayed his tag partner Sabu (they faced Cactus Jack and Chris Jericho) is often seen as a pivotal moment in the promotion's history and has been compared to Hulk Hogan's heel turn in WCW. Since changing his alignment, Raven has never looked back, clearly playing the bad guy role with ease.

 

Since his days feuding with Douglas, he has formed a cult following and has clocked up rivalries with Sabu, Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio Jr, The Sandman, Shawn Michaels and Owen Hart. However, all of these could be eclipsed in the wake of his bad blood with former protege, Paul Burchill. More recently, he was the main attraction in the New Age Enterprise stable that dominated the promotion for a few months and has since reformed Raven's Nest.

"Lionheart" Chris Jericho

 

Chris Jericho had what was perhaps the most meteoric rise to fame in the history of the sport. His feud with Steve Austin surpassed all expectations and pushed both men into the upper reaches of the card. When he was victorious in their final match at Barely Legal '97, he earned his place in the main event.

 

After entering a tag feud with Cactus Jack against the babyface team of Raven and Sabu, Chris Jericho turned a week after Raven, leading to him challenging for the title at Anarch Rules '97. He was victorious and held the title for five months before being dethroned by Goliath in 1998.

 

Since then, he has held the TV Title a record four times, the tag titles once (with Rob Van Dam) and formed the elite stable of The Canadian Connection with Christian and Chris Benoit.

"The Showstopper" Shawn Michaels

 

In one of the most shocking events of the '90s era, Shawn Michaels defected to ECW amidst a sea of misunderstandings and betrayals. Vince Mcmahon was unwilling to give Shawn Michaels a title run in the WWF, claiming that Bret Hart was still the most marketable man on the roster. Meanwhile, Kevin Nash, Michaels' old friend, convinced the Heart Break Kid to jump to WCW when his contract ran out in a mere matter of weeks. Michaels indeed saw his contract out and entered negotiations with Eric Bischoff. However, in one of the biggest backstabs in wrestling history, it was revealed that Vince and Nash had engineered the whole thing, freeing up a heel main-event on the WWF roster and a fat paycheck for Big Daddy Cool, who rejoined the Federation. Despite Bischoff's pleas, Michaels' sour experience led to him taking a hiatus. But then, after only a month, Paul Heyman called him up, offering a the best paycheck ECW could muster, a main event push and a the opportunity to air his grievances to the world... he accepted.

 

Michaels' debut was at Anarchy Rulz '98, when he appeared as a surprise attraction and faced Goliath for the World Title. He was victorious and, as a result, went by the name "Giant Killer" for the next few years. However, he lost the title to Raven shortly after, sparking a feud between the two men in which Michaels never really gained the upper-hand.

 

More recently, he battled the New Age Enterprise alongside the bWo, Rob Van Dam and Taz, winning the title for a second time in the process. The mutual enemies of him and RVD led to their forming one of the most exciting tag teams in ECW: The Whole F**kin' Show. After one tag title reign that ended in a massive argument between the two and RVD abandoning Michaels in the ring, the team seems to have got its sh*t together. The two men are as good friends as ever and are, once again, World Tag Team Champions.

So you started playing this on TEW 2004 and you used the data converter to convert it into TEW 05 files?

 

Actually, because I'm crap with all that kinda stuff, a painful amount of the TEW 2005 database was done from scratch based of the 2004 stats. Hence why I'm hoping that this diary goes well.

Back to the plot...

 

The Roster is split into two brands: Revolution and FTM (M standing for 'Mainstream'. Any Taz fans will immediately recognise the rest).

 

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/ecwchamps.jpg

Champs are on both brands.

The Authority

 

Stephanie Mcintosh (Face-ish many fans feel she does not deserve her position). At this moment in time I shall point out this is the las who joined the gameworld in TEW2004.

 

Announce Team

Don Callis

Scott Hudson

Jim Ross (Signed after he shockingly left WWF. Is little more than a comedic heel figure)

 

(It is a joke on this brand that Don Callis has to contend with an ex-WWF guy and an ex-WCW guy. He often resorts to calling the matches single handed and ignoring the pro-WWF ramblings of Ross. Hudson at least makes an effort; Ross doesn't).

 

Main Eventers

 

Tommy Dreamer (Face)

Steve Austin (Face)

Shawn Michales (Face - no longer associated with WWF as he defected years ago)

Cactus Jack (Face)

Rocky (Heel - very much still associated with WWF)

The Sandman (Heel)

 

Upper Midcarders

 

Paul Burchill (Face - Hell yes)

Rey Mysterio (Face)

Scott Steiner (Face - turned by launching an on-air a diatribe against WCW but not accepted by the fanbase)

Juventud Guerrera (Heel)

 

Midcarders

 

Yoshihiro Tajiri(Face)

Jim Molineaux

 

 

*Some of the workers in the list are surprising. They are included, in the main, simply for their name value as ECW tries to rise in size. Throughout the course of the diary, the roster will be moulded into a more constant and talent-oriented form*

Joey: Welcome to ECW...

Taz: ...F' The Mainstream.

Heyman: We let him have that line.

Taz: Hey bossman, it's 'cos of me that you call the show that.

Heyman: (laughing) Well someone was always gonna come up with it.

Taz: (laughing) Yeah, whatever Paul.

Joey: I'll just call the show myself shall I?

Taz: (still laughing) Sorry Joe.

Heyman: Floor's all yours.

Joey gives a jokingly scornful look

Joey: We're sold out in front of 10,000 fans here in Albequerqe

Taz: The Tingley Colliseum to be precise

Heyman: Yeah, whatever Taz

Joey: Let's go to Bob Artese

 

Bob Artese: The following contest is one fall. To my left the Sidekick Saviour Chris Hero. And to my right, from El Paso, Texas the second generation mexican mauler. This is Eddie Guerrero Resounding boos are heard which Eddie merely taunts.

Eddie wins with a Frog Splash after 11:43.

 

Match Rating: B+. A very solid opener.

 

The camera follows Eddie to the back where he collides with Christ Benoit

 

Eddie: What do you think you're looking at Holmes?

Benoit: I'm looking at you Eddie. A sellout piece of crap.

Eddie: Them fighting words Me Vito Loco. You should put you're money where you're mouth is.

Benoit: Sure thing Eddie, just don't look for sympathy in the fans you soldout when I make you tap out!

Benoit walks off leaving Eddie looking pissed.

 

Camera cuts back to ringside.

 

Joey: What do ya say Paul E. - is it official?

Heyman: Oh it's official. On June 28th at Wrestlepalooza you, Eddie Guerrero, will feel the wrath of these fans behind me and the Crippler Chris Benoit.

Taz: Hey, aren't you supposed to be objective in your commentary?

Heyman: Oh believe me I am. Eddie's days are numbered.

RVD appears by the entrance-way

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/RobVanDam.jpg

 

RVD: Straight to the point, no BS. I'm issuing a challenge right here, right now to Raven. You may have beaten Shawn Michaels last night but you can't beat me. So say hello to your new ECW World Champion - Rob Van Dam.

 

Back in the ring...

 

Bob Artese: The following match is one fall and for the ECW Tag Team Titles. On my left, the Hardy Boys. "Vince sucks c**k" chants sound around the arena And on my right from Dudleyville the Dudley Boys. Loud cheers

Dudley Boys win with a 3D at 11:24

Match Rating: B+.

 

Raven enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Raven3.jpg

 

 

Raven: Throughout history it has been the inaction of those who should have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most that has made it possible for evil to triumph. What about me? What about Raven? I am that evil!

 

Consider, if you will, that you feckless, fickle parasites revere Shawn Michaels as a god. Last night, I beat that god, I bled that god, I buried the career of that god six feet under. Who kills a god if not a god? I'm on the same, no a higher, existential level than the "Immortal" Shawn Michaels. Yet still you chant his name rather than mine.

 

So, now, RVD wants a title shot and Raven has to prove himself once more. Furthermore, I have to do it with an injured arm. Nevertheless, prove myself I shall whoever the challenger may be.

 

So it is written, so it shall come to pass.

Quote The Ra...

 

The lights go out

They come on again to reveal Sabu, who merely signals at his waist, indicating that he wants Raven's title.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Sabu.jpghttp://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Raven3.jpg

The two men stare each other down and Raven slaps Sabu.

A Brawl begins and then RVD comes running out.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/RobVanDam.jpg

He goes to kick Raven but misses and decks Sabu. He then unloads rights and lefts on Raven, who manages to escape the ring.

Sabu then attacks RVD from behind, picks up a chair and beats him down, leaving him bloodied.

 

Joey: Well that was...

Heyman: ...interesting?

Joey: Pretty much

Taz: Man, that was violent

Joey: Very true but now it's Goliath vs. Christian

Heyman: What kind of name is Christian anyway?

Taz: What do you mean?

Heyman: Well my parents had nine months to decide on a name, the same as his, but they didn't call me "Jew".

Joey and Taz try and restrain their laughter

Joey: We apologise for that

Heyman: laughing What?

All three announcers are laughing as the camera cuts to the ring

Raven is walking down a corridor backstage and sees Sabu.

The two approach each other and look set to brawl.

Out of nowhere, RVD appears with a singapore cane and takes both of them out.

 

Joey: This looks like it's getting serious.

 

Bob Artese: The Main Event for this evening is one fall and is for the ECW World Television Championship. On my left "The Canadian Extremist" Lance Storm. And on my right, also from Canada, the ECW World TV Champion "The Lionheart" Chris Jericho.

woah,...Hogan had to find work then eh? after WWE was gone :)

 

He came to ECW as a heel Main Eventer back in 2000 when WCW went out of business... he refused to work for Vince.

 

After about a year or two of being the most hated man on the roster, he was too old to carry on wrestling so Roadie it is.

will the two shows be competing for ratings?

They shall be competing for ratings, yes, but in the form of a friendly rivalry.

 

Any crossbrand matches at PPVs (all PPVs cover both brands) have to be agreed by both authorities (except for those booked by me but you'll notice I very rarely pop up - I'm not Vince Mcmahon and therefore prefer to leave the crowd interaction to Paul E. and Steph on the whole).

 

Basically, they compete as far as it is healthy for the product. They try and hype their matches above the competition's but don't degrade each other.

Don Callis: Hello and welcome to ECW Revolution, I'm Don Callis.

JR: And I'm Jim Ross

Scott Hudson: We're live in front of 10,000 fans in the Pan-American Stadium and we have a great card lined up!

Don Callis: Shawn Michaels will be in action despite suffering broken ribs last Sunday at Barely Legal. He will square off against Psicosis.

Scott Hudson: And continuing on the theme of luchadores we have two high-flying battles set for tonight.

JR: First off, two japanese greats faceoff as Lyger takes on Ultimo Dragon

Don Callis: Then, the main event. Rey Mysterio vs. Juventud Guerrera. I can't wait guys.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's opening contest is one fall. To my left, from D'loville, D'lo. And to my right, residing in Pennsylvania, Nate Hatred.

Match Rating: B+

 

Tommy Dreamer appears at the entrane way to give a shoot promo

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TommyDreamer.jpg

 

Dreamer: Last Sunday, Barely Legal marked a two year anniversary. It was exactly two years since I last had a title shot. Well guess what? Raven, I've beaten you before and I'll beat you again. Put quite simply...

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TheSandman.jpg

The Sandman emerges from the entrance and attacks Tommy Dreamer with a singapore cane from behind

Sandman: I've heard RVD challenge Raven, I've seen Sabu challenge Raven and now Tommy Dreamer joins the list but the list ends here! If anyone's gonna challenge Raven it's gonna be me!

 

Don Callis: Wow, in the space of a week Raven has been issued with four seperate challenges: RVD, Sabu, Dreamer and Sandman.

Scott Hudson: Yeah, and you've got to believe that both Steph Mcintosh and Paul E. will be plugging one of the guys from their show to get the next title shot.

Don Callis: That's true. I don't know how this will be settled.

JR: Well if this was WWE...

Don Callis: ...Well it's not WWE Jim. This is ECW, where we give a fair go to all challengers regardless of whether they marry the boss' daughter or not.

Scott Hudson: Calm down guys, I'm sure Steph and Paul will think of something.

Don Callis: True. Anyway, it's now time for Yoshihiro Tajiri vs. Jerry Lynn.

JR: Your old client I believe, Don.

Don Callis: Yeah, a few years back.

Steve Austin enters the ring for a shoot promo.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/StunningSteve.jpg

 

Austin: It seems like an awful lot of people have their sights set on the same goal. That, of course, being the ECW World Title. Personally, I'm happy just kicking ass and getting paid for it! (Huge pop). Anyway, as you may have noticed I've been out with a neck injury thanks to a chair shot from Goldberg two months ago. But hey, we're on different shows I've got no vendetta. There's enough people to kick his ass on F' The Mainstream without my intervention (F**k you Goldberg chant begins - Austin laughs). Having said that, I make my official in-ring return next week (another huge pop) and a very good friend of mine has agreed to be my opponent... none other than Cactus Jack!

He leaves as the crowd go crazy at the prospect of Austin vs. Cactus Jack

Lyger wins with a 450 splash at 13:40.

Match Rating: A* - they have great chemistry.

 

Raven enters the ring, for a shoot promo, to a hugely negative reaction

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Raven3.jpg

 

Raven: The Bible states "There is hope, faith and love but the greatest of these is love." In ECW, there is F' The Mainstream, there is Revolution and there is the ECW World Chamionship. The greatest of these is the Championship.

 

What about me? What about Raven? I am the ECW World Champion and I am the greatest force hardcore wrestling has ever seen.

 

As far as I'm concerned, it does not matter if it is RVD, Sabu, Dreamer or Sandman. They are all inferior to me.

 

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TheSandman.jpg

The Sandman crashes the ring with a singapore cane in hand but Raven is able to escape through the audience just before he gets nailed.

Sandman raises his hand to jeers from the sellout crowd.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TommyDreamer.jpg

However, Tommy Dreamer runs in and the jeers turn to cheers.

Sandman also escapes through the crowd before Dreamer can get his revenge.

 

Scott Hudson: Dreamer wants blood.

Jim Ross: I think they all do.

Don Callis: No doubt but, now, let's go to Bob Artese in the ring.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's main event is one fall. To my left, hailing from Mexico, Rey Mysterio Jr. And to my right, also from Mexico, Juventud Guerrera.

Taz: ...F' The Mainstream.

Joey: I'm Joey Styles: the only man unlucky enough to share an announce table with Taz and Paul Heyman.

Heyman: laughs Oh that's cold.

Joey: 9,990 fans have packed the Cricket Arena.

Taz: Oh yeah, we're full to bursting baby and it looks like our first match is set to kick off.

Kurt Angle is in the ring for a shoot promo

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/KurtAngle.jpg

 

Angle: When I got to the arena tonight I discovered I was booked into a handicap match against the Hardy Boys. You may think I'm apprehensive about facing two guys at once but, in fact, I relish the opportunity to prove my wrestling superiority. You see, Matt and Jeff, this isn't World Wrestling Egomania, where musclebound brawlers with no skill for true wrestling succeed. This is ECW, I'm Kurt Angle and you... will tap out!

 

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/KurtAngle.jpgvs.http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/JeffHardy.jpghttp://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/MattHardy.jpg

Paul Heyman takes off his headset and enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/PaulHeyman.jpg

 

Heyman: Now I have a little surprise for all of you...

 

Unknown music plays and, to the audience's surprise, Brock Lesnar emerges from the entrance-way wearing an ECW shirt. He recieves a strong positive reaction.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/BrockLesnar.jpg

He shakes hands with Paul Heyman. He then takes a step back... and clotheslines him! He the rips his ECW shirt to shreds. Huge jeers are heard.

He picks up Heyman's mic...

 

Lesnar: Did you honestly think I would come to ECW and embrace it? I detest everything you stand for. Hardcore brawling over wrestling, unnecessary violence and rudeness... this promotion is a disgrace. A "Get the f**k out!" chant begins. Why? Because I'm better than you? Because you feel threatened?

 

The Dudley Boys come running out to a huge ovasion and attack Lesnar.

John Finnegan enters the ring as Heyman stumbles back to the announce table

 

Joey: Well, it looks like we have an unscheduled match.

Taz: Oh man, this is huge! You okay Paul?

Heyman: clearly in pain Just about. I'll feel a lot better when the Dudleys destroy Lesnar.

 

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/BrockLesnar.jpgvs.http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/BubbaRayDudley.jpghttp://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/D-VonDudley.jpg

 

Lesnar wins with an F-5 at 12:54.

Match Rating: A

 

Joey: Damn it!

Taz: Who does this guy think he is?

 

Heyman picks up a microphone but is wise enough to stay at the announce table this time.

 

Heyman: You know what Brock? If you're so convinced that ECW places no emphasis on technical excellence, at Wrestlepalooza you can face a man who thinks slightly differently to you. T^he other man to win a handicap match tonight... Kurt Angle!

Lesnar looks shocked

Taz: Yeah, Paul, yeah.

Raven enters the ring for a shoot promo

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Raven3.jpg

 

Raven: How many men does it take to challenge for the ECW World Title? Apparently, four because none of them are good enough to beat me single-handed. What about me? What about Raven? I could destroy RVD, Sabu, Dreamer or Sandman but the problem lies in the fact that I have to watch my back for fear of armed two-on-one assaults. Moreover, I have to remember who I'm supposed to be opposing on which show - it's more difficult than you might think when four men are screaming for your blood.

 

But it stops here!

 

RVD, you took me out from behind with a singapore cane last week. So why don't you come down here right now and prove you can do it face-to-face.

 

RVD's music hits and the crowd goes nuts.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/RobVanDam.jpg

RVD walks out with chair in hand taunting Raven.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Sabu.jpg

But as if from nowhere Sabu attacks RVD from behind, takes his chair and blasts him in the head with it.

A limp RVD falls to the floor. Sabu picks him up and throws him through the entrance-way caging and into electrical equipment.

 

Joey: Oh my God!

Taz: That is absolutely brutal!

 

Sabu turns to face Raven and the two men stare each other down from opposite sides of the arena before Sabu walks off, leaving RVD to be helped backstage by Hogan and Funk.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's main event is one fall and for the ECW World Television Championship. To my left, from the United Kingdom, the Anarchist Doug Williams. And to my right, the ECW World Television Champion, the Lionheart Chris Jericho.

Tuesday, week 2, June

ECW online has discovered that Revolution has signed Abyss, AJ Styles and Jimmy Yang to written contracts. They will join the brand's roster to expand the lower-midcard. "We are delighted to welcome three wrestlers of great quality to the brand. I'm sure that Jimmy and AJ will fit right in with our outstanding high-flyers, while Abyss will, no doubt, add to the hardcore intensity of the show." said Stephanie Mcintosh in a press conference earlier. When asked when these individuals could be expected to hit ECW TV screens she replied "I can tell you that Jimmy Yang will debut on Thursday against a fellow Japanese native." This means that Yang could face Tajiri, Lyger or Ultimo Dragon. Tune into Revolution to find out who it is!

Scott Hudson: Tonight's show takes place in front of a sellout crowd in the USF Sun Dome and I have to say the card is as good as the attendance.

JR: Absoloutley Scott. Tonight Abyss, Jimmy Yang and AJ Styles make their ECW debuts. Abyss takes on Stevie Richards of the bWo, Yang faces Lyger and AJ will wrestle Jerry Lynn.

Dreamer: I think I proved pretty conclusively last week that I deserve a title shot when the other top contender fleed at the first site of me. I don't care who else challenges. This is my time and I'm willing to prove it by facing the Sandman tonight!

 

The Sandman comes to the ring with microphone in hand

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TheSandman.jpg

 

Sandman: Tommy. Tommy, Tommy, you don't need to prove anything because everyone already knows you are nowhere near as good as me!

Dreamer: Come on then Sandman: right here, right now - you and me

Sandman: No, I don't think so. I want to save myself for when I face Raven for the title. It doesn't matter anyway, you know in you heart that I would kick your arse.

 

Both men throw their mics down and go nose to nose.

They are so focused on staring each other out that they do not notice Raven making his way through the crowd.

i have to say you really captured the feel of ECW. Even with some of the old WWE guys you managed to really capture that sence of what ECW is all about. While Im not trying to step on anyones toes that posts diarys, yours is the best ECW one out there right now (and there are a few) and one of the best period. I am humbled before you are a diary writer and I can only hope to have the same feeling in mine own diary. Good job man, good job.

Thank you I am, in turn, truly humbled by your response. What can I say? I was (and am) a huge, huge ECW fan. Paul E's booking style was almost everything I loved about wrestling. I actually cried when I heard the company went out (I was a bit younger then). This is my own way of trying to keep the old vision alive.

 

As happy as I am with the relaunch of ECW it's just not quite the same when at the first ECW TV show Cena gets a bigger pop than Heyman. That's just not right in any ECW fans mind.

Joey: Hello and welcome to ECW...

Taz: ...F' The Mainstream.

Heyman: You two are so gay.

Joey: I beg your pardon?

Heyman: Your camp little opening and constantly finishing each other's sentences.

Joey: I think we'll leave that there.

Heyman: No I'll tell you what - official fans' poll: Are Taz and Joey secretly a couple? Answers on the back of a postcard addressed to Paul E.

Taz: laughs Let's just call the show shall we.

Heyman: Fine, I'm done.

Joey: 10,000 fans are here in the Cricket Arena for the show and without further ado let's go to Bob Artese.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's opening contest is one fall. To my left, The Sidekick Saviour Chris Hero and to my left, The Beast Bob Sapp.

Bob Sapp wins with a Beast Bomb at 10:42

Match Rating: B

 

Heyman removes his head set and enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/PaulHeyman.jpg

 

Heyman: I am in the ring to address a certain Stephanie Mcintosh. I don't know how many of you watch ECW Revolution but Miss Mcintosh is my equivalent on that show so to speak. Now, she offered a "proposal" last Thursday, a proposal that was, quite frankly, the single worst idea I have ever heard! And Believe me I hear a lot sitting next to Joey and Taz.

 

Seriously, though, her idea is an unacceptable one because I have two guys that deserve a shot at the title - RVD and Sabu. Mind you, Van Dam is not currently cleared to wrestle after last week. My point is, Stephanie, that if RVD's health permits it my two guys will face each other at Wrestlepalooza and in my eyes the winner of that match is far more deserving of a title shot than Sandman or Dreamer.

Lionheart Chris Jericho enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/ChrisJericho.jpg

 

Jericho: That's right, the one and only Lionheart is here for your entertainment. Now, There may be a whole hell of a lot of controversy surrounding the World Title but there is none surrounding the TV Title. I am your champion and there's not a man good enough alive to beat me. So, Sabu, RVD, Sandman, Dreamer and Raven , when you next start feeling insecure about the amount of challenges coming your way just think WWJD? What Would Jericho Do?

Kurt Angle enters the ring for his match but picks up a mic

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/KurtAngle.jpg

 

Angle: I beat the Hardy Boys last week, just like I said I would and tonight I will beat Andrew "Test Dummy" Martin. That's all you are a test dummy, a warm-up match before I destroy Lesnar at Wrestlepalooza. You see, Andrew, you may be big up in your home country of Cananda but this is the USA, I am Kurt Angle and you... will tap out.

Kurt Angle wins with an Ankle Lock at 12:36

Match Rating: A*

 

RVD enters the ring on crutches, wearing a neck brace.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/RobVanDam.jpg

 

RVD: As you can see, I'm not doing too good. The doctors say I'm not gonna be cleared to wrestle until at least September - that's three months. So, Sabu I would appreciate it if you could come down here. For once, you won't get jumped - you got the better of me.

 

Sabu obliges and enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Sabu.jpg

 

RVD: Seeing as I can't wrestle the title shot is yours. I have no right to hold you back.

 

Sabu turns his back on RVD to face the crowd - he performs his signature tribute to his Uncle.

Suddenly, RVD drops the crutches and as soon as Sabu turns aroun again SMACK, he nails him with a roundhouse kick.

He removes his neckbrace, heads to the top rope and delivers the 5-Star

 

RVD: You think that's all it takes to get rid of RVD? One day in the hospital and I was out ready to beat you down Sabu. At wrestlepalooza I'll return the favour by putting you in the hospital. The only difference is that you'll stay there.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's main event is one fall. To my left, from Toronto Canada, Christian. And to my right, the Man Beast, Rhyno.

Rhyno wins with a Piledriver through a ringside table at 15:21

Match Rating: A*

 

Raven enters the ring for a shoot promo.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Raven3.jpg

 

Raven: And so preoccupied did the man become with his own vendetta that he forgot what was important. RVD will face Sabu; Dreamer will face The Sandman. What about me? What about Raven?

 

Far be it from me to imply that I'm not happy with the fact that the four men who were attacking me left, right and centre suddenly have other things to deal with. However, I have a right to know who I will face at Wrestlepalooza!

 

Goldberg comes running in

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/Goldberg.jpg

 

He spears Raven before the champ can move

 

Goldberg: Careful what you wish for Raven. You might just get it!

Ugh! Dont get me started on how bad the ECW debut was. After i saw that it was just an WWE arena with the ECW trimmings I knew it was going to be bad. It was not an ECW crowd and it was not an ECW show. Personally Im a TNA fan, and I feel if you want the ECW type action of old (the great wrestling minus the hardcore stuff even though they have their share of that) then TNA is the place to be. I truly hate what the WWE has done with ECW. All Vince sees is more money when he looks at what ECW could be. Paul looks at it and sees a breeding ground for great wrestlers for the future. By the way Good job on another great show!

Monday, week 4, June

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/ecwrevolution.jpg

*Theme music, Trivium - Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr, plays*

 

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/DonCallis.jpghttp://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/ScottHudson.jpghttp://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/JimRoss.jpg

Don Callis: Hello and welcome to ECW Revolution, I'm Don Callis.

JR: And I'm Jim Ross.

Scott Hudson: 10,400 fans are in attendance here at the Breslin Events Centre for the show.

Don Callis: We already know that Stephanie Mcintosh will make an announcement tonight. We assume that this is to confirm Revolution's matches for Wrestlepalooza. However, she may also respond to Paul Heyman's comments on F' The Mainstream.

JR: Well let's put speculation to one side and get on with the show.

Scott Hudson: Bob Artese is ready in the ring.

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's opening contest is one fall. To my left, the Beast Bob Sapp and to my right, Nate Hatred.

Bob Sapp wins with a Beast Bomb at 11:35

Match Rating: B+

 

Lionheart Chris Jericho enters the ring for a shoot promo

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/ChrisJericho.jpg

 

Jericho: How many of you were watching Revolution last week? Wasn't it a joke? Abyss debuts and beats Big Stevie Cool.

 

Wow, what an achievement, seeing as Stevie couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag. Yang debuts amidst much hype and loses. What a let down. AJ Styles, on the other hand... oh no, wait, he lost too.

 

And then in the main event Cactus Jack was beaten by Steve Austin. The guy's been out with a serious neck injury for two months. He's not yet on top of his game and Cactus still lost to him. What's the matter - not the hardcore freak you used to be?

 

So to sum up, these people are all facing a few difficulties. Especially that washed up hardcore has-been. So I recommend thinking WWJD? What Would Jericho Do?

 

Cactus Jack appears at the entrance-way

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/CactusJack.jpg

 

Cactus Jack: Washed up hardcore has-been? Washed up hardcore has-been? Is that what you think of me? Let me tell you that I am proud to call Steve Austin a friend and facing him in that ring is an honor regardless of the result.

 

You, on the other hand, are an outspoken , egotistical ass hole! You see, Jericho, you made a big mistake in your plain speaking because Stephanie Mac hasn't yet announced the Revolution half of the card for Wrestlepalooza. So, I think that it would be fitting for me to beat some respect into you on Friday! The only reason people even take you seriously is that TV Belt on your shoulder but come Wrestlepalooza it will be on my shoulder.

 

The two men stare each other down from opposite sides of the arena.

Paul Burchill wins with a Standing Moonsault at 12:42

Match Rating: A

 

Rocky enters the ring to an incredibly negative reaction

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TheRock.jpg

 

Rocky: Shut the hell up, no one gives a damn what you think! Especially you loudmouth lard asses at the front here. Now onto more important issues. Then again, anything is more important than a precocious ECW crowd. Huge boos are heard. What's the matter, did Rocky use a big word?

 

Steve Austin accepted my challenge last week and it looks like we'll square off at Wrestlepalooza. But let me warn you, Austin, I'm no walkover like Cactus Jackoff. I will kick your ass and still make you look better than you ever have before because I am just that good a wrestler. People for years will remember your name. Don't that make you proud Austin? You will go down in history as the man who lost to Rocky!

 

Austin appears at the entrance-way

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/StunningSteve.jpg

 

Austin: Look, son, I'm not gonna reciprocate your insulting comments because, frankly, it is not worth it. Let's just see at Wrestlepalooza whether you've spent as much time training as you have practicing your crappy speeches in front of your bathroom mirror.

Shawn Michaels wins with Sweet Chin Music at 12:50

Match Rating: A

 

Stephanie Mcintosh enters the ring

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/StephanieMcintosh.jpg

 

Steph: I'm out here for two reasons. Firstly I want to announce the Revolution half of the card for Wrestlepalooza.

 

Our opener, will be: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Juventud Guerrera, who have expressed an interest in a rematch after their meeting two weeks ago.

 

For the ECW TV Title: Cactus Jack will challenge Chris Jericho

 

And of course: Steve Austin will face Rocky

 

My second announcement ties in with Revolution's final match on the card: Tommy Dreamer vs. The Sandman. The controversy surrounding the World Title has to end! So, I suggest that either RVD or Sabu, depending upon who wins in their match, faces either Dreamer or The Sandman, again depending on the victor, at Summer Assylum in July. The winner of this inter-promotional match will face the ECW World Champion. I think that this scenario is a fair outcome for all parties.

Juventud Guerrera wins with a Juvi Driver at 14:12

Match Rating: A*

 

Don Callis: So, Juvi picks up the win heading into Wrestlepalooza.

JR: Yeah, what an amazing match!

Scott Hudson: His opponent on Friday is up next, taking on Ultimo Dragon. Let's see if Rey Mysterio can also gain some momentum.

 

Dreamers music hits.

Before he can even make it to the ring, he is attacked by The Sandman.

http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j254/charliepag/TheSandman.jpg

The two men brawl wildly around the ringside area.

 

JR: Oh good lord, they're going at it right here on top of us.

Scott Hudson: Oh god, no.

 

Sandman powerbombs Dreamer through the announce table and casually walks backstage.

Hogan and Funk come out to help Dreamer but he refuses, walking to the back on his own. He recieves applause as a result.

 

Don Callis: Oh, come on, there must be at least fifteen tables under the ring and you have to use ours?

 

Bob Artese: Tonight's main event is a lucha libre showdown. To my left, from San Diego California, Rey Mysterio Jr. And to my right,from Nagoya Japan, Ultimo Dragon.
