Hardcore Heaven '99
The show began with Joey Styles in the ring. He was interrupted, however, by Chris Candido and Tammy Lynn Sytch, who came out and announced that they had hired some "protection" for the World title match later in the evening with Taz. The protection turned out to be six time ECW World Tag Team Champions the Dudley Boyz. Taz' music played and he hit the ring, thus starting the main event.
-ECW World Heavyweight Champion "Human Suplex Machine" Taz defeated
Chris Candido (with Tammy Lynn Sytch) by submission to the Taz-mission in under a minute. The Dudley Boyz then hit 3D on Taz, who was carried out of the Arena. The Dudleys then challenged any team to a match, as they have done at the last several PPV's.
-ECW World Tag Team Champions The Dudley Boyz (with Sign Guy Dudley & Joel Gertner) defeated Balls Mahoney & Spike Dudley when The Dudleys pinned Mahoney following the 3D. Balls accepted the challenge, and was later joined by
Spike. However, they could not overcome the tag champs.
-Super Crazy defeated TAKA Michinoku following a Crazy Bomb (powerbomb cradle).
The Dudleys Boyz discovered a hit list in the locker room with Joel Gertner. They then attacked the first man on the list, Nova.
-Yoshihiro Tajiri defeated "The Extreme Stud" Little Guido (with Big Sal E. Graziano) following a brainbuster.
In the locker room, The Dudleys attacked "Rugged" Rod Price.
-"The Man to Beat" Lance Storm (with "Beulah") defeated "Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer (with "Head Cheerleader" Francine) following a spin heel kick off the top rope. Storm had stuffed a trash can over Dreamer's head, and then hit the kick off the top.
The Dudley Boyz attacked Jack Victory in the locker room area. Taz then challenged the Dudleys to a handicap match for the main event.
-ECW World TV Champion "Mr. PPV RVD" Rob Van Dam (with "The Man Who
Calls it Right Down the Middle, the Manager of Champions" Bill Alfonzo) defeated "The New F'n Show" Jerry Lynn following a 5-star Frog Splash. This one went for over a half hour, a TREMENDOUS match. I can sum it up in four words: Match of the year.
-Justin Credible came out and told the world how he had grounded the Great Sasuke, caned the Sandman out of ECW, and broken Shane Douglas' ankle in his own hometown of Pittsburgh. "Judge" Jeff Jones then appeared, and informed Credible who he would be matched up against.
In the back, the Dudley Boyz (along with a returning "Big" Dick Dudley) attacked Chris Chetti.
-Sid (with "Judge" Jeff Jones) defeated "Hardcore Icon" Justin Credible (with "Sexiest man on Earth" Jason and Jazz (AKA "Namelesswoman")) by disqualification when Lance Storm interfered. After the match, Storm and Credible set Sid up on a table, but Sabu appeared and attacked both Lance and Justin. He set Credible up on the table along with Sid, but Storm pulled him off before Sabu could put him through the table. Instead, it was just Sid who was put through the table by Sabu, as Storm and Credible ran for the back. Afterwards, Sid turned on Jeff Jones and powerbombed him twice.
-ECW World Champion "Human Suplex Machine" Taz defeated ECW World Tag
Team Champion Buh Buh Ray Dudley (with Sign Guy, D-Von & "Big" Dick Dudley
and Joel Gertner) by submission when Buh Buh Ray submitted to the Taz-mission. Before the bout, Taz had declared "FTW" rules (falls count anywhere, no DQ).

ECW GUILTY AS CHARGED RESULTS
By Dave Scherer of http://www.1wrestling.com
They will show Paul Heyman early in the show doing a promo where he
says that the card has been changed due to the fact that Masato Tanaka
is not at the show. He also will say that Jerry Lynn's fractured
pelvis has not healed enough to work. He will also say that they don't
want Lynn to work hurt, since he is a great wrestler. He promises that
Lynn will be back by 3/21, at Living Dangerously. He said that they
will change the card around, and bring the fans the best show they can.
They preview for the show went live at 7:30. Word filtered back to the
building that the C Band satellite distributor TVN was not airing the
pre-show. I know that phone calls were made to fix it.
Before the show started, they did promos with Taz, and then Shane
Douglas and Francine. I noticed before the show that Shane had a
contusion on his head. Dunno where it came from.
The show started at the building at 7:37, when The One Man Gang and
Rod Price hit the ring. Their opponents were Nova and Chris Chetti.
Standard tag match which saw the heels get heat on Chetti for the
first five minutes. Nova came in and had the match won, but Bill Wiles
did his "time limit has expired gimmick". Gang attacked Nova and hit
the 747. Wiles said that time was back in, and Gang got the pin.
Chetti got into it with Wiles. Wiles came in the ring and said he
could have first shot and said he would turn his back. When he did,
Nova nailed him with a cool facebuster and Chetti covered him. Nova
counted a pin on Wiles.
At 6 minutes of, Paul Heyman came out to ringside. The crowd loudly
chanted his name. He fired them up with a mix of profanity and ripping
on the WWF and WCW. It was typical Paul, and the crowd ate it up. He
then made them aware of the injury situation that the fans at home on
PPV would learn about in a few minutes. The fans did not really react
about Jerry Lynn not being here, but booed when he told them Tanaka is
not there. He said that RVD got to pick his opponent and the fans will
be happy with who he chooses. He then brought out Joey Styles, to a
huge pop. Joey worked the crowd up, until they went live.
The opener will have Danny Doring and Roadkill vs. The FBI (Tracy
Smothers, Little Guido, Big Guido, Sal E. Graziano, and The Big Don,
Tommy Rich). Two minutes in, out came Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten,
with their chairs. Axl took the mic and said he was sitting in the
back and it looked like "a homosexual dance party." Never seen one of
them so I will just have to take his word for it! He said they were
going to make this match what put ECW on the map, an elimination three
way dance, and off it went. Good stuff, with guys all over. Balls got
the first "ECW" chant when he did a splash from the top onto all the
FBI guys on the floor. Roadkill got a two seven minutes in with a nice
splash on Smothers. Guido made the save. The FBI eliminated Doring and
Roadkill when they hit a double fisherman's suplex on Doring in eight
minutes. The faces got the pin when Axl hit severe skull trauma on
Tracy while Balls hit the Nutcracker on Guido in ten minutes.
Afterwards, Big Guido and Sal came in the ring, before they could do
anything, the faces wasted them with chairshots to the head. Good
They cut to a video package where Terry Funk did one of his cool
parable interviews, where he talked about how his daddy slit the
throat of his jack ass. He said his father did that because his jack
ass turned on him. He said he is going to do the same thing to Tommy
Dreamer because he chose Jake Roberts as his partner at the N2R
instead of him. He said he would "juice" Tommy and see how much blood
he had to bleed. He told the cameraman to get out.
Time to get crazy as Yoshihiro Tajiri took on Super Crazy. If you want
a blow by blow on this one, read Tim's report tomorrow. I am gonna sit
here and enjoy this one. It was a very good match that Tajiri won with
a Dragon Suplex.
John Kronus came out, followed by Jeff Jones, who was wearing a
judge's outfit. He said that he was the Judge, Jeff Jones. He said
that he has already decided that Bill Clinton and OJ Simpson were
Guilty as Charged. He said that Kronus was Guilty too and he was here
to face charges. He said that Kronus laid him out last week in
Lebanon, PA and he is Guilty as Charged. He said that he will face his
executioner. He said he was a little but Psycho. Kronus said no one is
as crazy as him, and out came Sid Eudy, to a big pop. Sid took a few
shots from him and then chokeslammed Kronus over the top rope, through
a table on the floor. Sid killed him with chairshots on the floor. The
fans chanted powerbomb and he obliged, killing Kronus. Fans loved it.
They then aired a video package which chronicled the Taz vs. Shane
Douglas feud, along with Taz taking out Sabu.
Out next were the Dudley Boys. Bubba said to send out anyone they
want, and they will nail them with 3D. New Jack and Spike Dudley took
them up on the challenge. Joel Gertner cut a fabulous, profane,
Orlando based tirade that was just super. The Crowd popped huge for
it. Bubba then told the crowd that they did not have a match on the
show, and they were not supposed to be on the PPV. They said that the
people don't deserve to see them fight. They challenged anyone in the
building to fight them Dudleyville style, get out there now. New Jack
and Spike took the challenge, to a big pop. Spike came out dressed up
like Mustapha. Wild violence early. Bubba pressed Spike WAY into the
crowd. They bodysurfed him a bit. Bubba got him and threw him into the
other side of the crowd, but the fans let him drop. Ouch. The teams
faced off chairs against guitars, but Big Dick got nailed. The heels
then took the faces out with chairs. Bubba KILLED Spike with a Tiger
bomb off the second rope. Jack piledrove D-Von in the floor. Jack was
fighting both on the floor when D-Von hit Bubba by accident. Somehow,
the Duds hit a variation of 3D on Jack on the floor. Dick went to hit
Spike with a chokeslam, but Spike hit the Acid Drop on Dick, then
D-Von. Then Bubba. He went to the well on Dick and missed. They hit 3D
on Spike and got the win. Good match.
Afterwards, they handcuffed Spike to the ropes. They picked up Jack.
Dick held him. D-Von read the commandments of Dudleyism and Bubba
nailed him with a chair after all three of them. Jack juiced buckets.
There were puddles in the ring. D-Von hit Jack with the 187. Bubba
took the mic and said Spike and Jack were dead. He talked about every
tag team that they had run out of ECW and then said that RVD and
Sabu's days as tag champs were numbered. They said there is only one
tag team left for them to beat to prove they are the greatest tag team
in ECW history, and they challenged to the Public Enemy to show up at
the ECW Arena on 1/16, which all signs point to happening, since the
PE has reportedly agreed to work at least that date.
On TV they aired an RVD video package. At the building, Damage Control
and Dr. Marque Allen came out to attend to the fallen Jack and Spike.
as Jack was walking to the back, he fell off of the rampway.
Joey Styles came back and said that Lance Storm will now take on RVD
in the match for the TV Title.
And out Lance came, with Tammy Lynn Bytch. Lance took the stick and
said that there would not be a Three Way Dance with him, since Spike
already took a beating and that Jerry Lynn was in the back crying
about a cracked him that he gave him. He said that he is a champion
from Calgary, and he wants a belt. Then RVD came out, to a huge pop.
Toward the end, the ref took an erreant Van Daminator and Storm had
the pin. RVD then hit a Van Daminator from the top, but only got a
two. A few minutes later, at about 18 minutes, RVD got the pin with a
German Suplex, with no release. Good match, with a lot of strong spots.
After a cool video package covering the Justin Credible vs. Tommy
Dreamer feud, Justin came out with Chastity, Jason, and Jazzmyn (who
ECW has not given a name to yet but will probably be calling "Jazz").
No Terry Funk though. Tommy came out next, dragging the ladder which
would lead to the "Stairway to Hell", a.k.a. the Singapore cane that
was hanging over the ring. Lots of psycho stuff as you would expect,
and an enjoyable bout. They did a cool spot where a bloody Tommy got
another ladder and both men climbed them to get the cane and Tommy hit
a Stunner on Justin. Finally, Tommy got the cane and tied up JC in the
ropes and was about to cane him when Terry Funk came out and nailed
Tommy with a trashcan shot to the head. Justin hit "That's Incredible"
on the ladder, and got the pin. Funk began beating him senseless with
the trashcan. Funk chewed him out. Joey Styles begged Tommy to fight
Steven Prazak then did his interview with Taz, followed by Shane's bit.
They killed the lights and brought out Taz, in a good intro. Shane
Douglas, with Francine, followed. At this point, they had 27 minutes
left of airtime. They brawled all around the building, stiff and wild.
Both got busted open, and some of the fans were getting a little too
active, enjoying it a little too much, if you know what I mean. They
finally came back to ringside and Shane placed a table upright in the
corner. Taz eventually took a great bump into the table, breaking it
in two. Shane brought another table in and Taz suplexed Shane through
it. At this point, the lights went out and pyrotechnics lit the
building up. Amidst them was Sabu, who hit an AWESOME double
springboard clothesline on both men. He hit a springboard moonsault on
Taz. A springboard legdrop on Shane, putting through the table. He
then did a nice twisting splash on Taz, putting him through a table.
The crowd was popping huge, chanting ECW. Sabu left, and Shane got a
two count. Just then, Chris Candido and Tammy Sycth came out of the
crowd, into thr ring. Tammy and Francine faced off. Their "men" pulled
them apart. Francine was damn near naked. Candido nailed Shane and he
and Tammy left. Taz stood up and locked on the choke on Shane. Shane
tried to fight his way out but Taz finally choked him out. The ref
dropped his arm three times, leading to the NEW ECW Heavyweight
champion. Great match.
After the show went off the air, Francine helped Shane too the back as
the fans clapped and chanted ECW. Overall, a really strong show. I
got to watch the show on monitor and unless their were system farts in
the uplink, this show was leaps and bounds better than the N2R in
production. And as a show too. Good rebound for the company.
By Dave Scherer of http://www.1wrestling.com
ECW - NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER from New Orleans, Louisiana
The show opened with New Jack attacking Jack Victory in the parking lot and getting taken away in handcuffs. After the video footage, Joey Styles announced the card to the crowd. Terry Funk came out and took the mic from Styles. Funk ranted about not being invited to the matches and verbally attacked Tommy Dreamer. Funk was upset that Dreamer didn't call when he needed help.
* Blue Meanie & SuperNova vs. RoadKill & Dastardly Donny Doring
The crowd rose to their feet when the Blue Meanie set up and delivered the People's Leg Drop. Seconds after, Terry Funk came out and began slapping Meanie. RoadKill and Doring turned the match around, but not for long. Nova nailed Doring with a frog splash off the top rope and Meanie immediately followed with a Meaniesault. Roadkill made the save as there was only a two count. Meanie and Nova regained control of Doring and executed the Blue Light Special. After the match Terry Funk attacked Meanie and Nova.
Winners: Blue Meanie and SuperNova by pinfall after Blue Light Special.
* Tracey Smothers vs. Tommy Rodgers

Storm hit Mikey with a low blow, but he thought it was Sytch. A confused Mikey nailed Sytch with the Whippersnapper and then reversed Jerry Lynn's roll up on Storm to give Storm the victory.
Winner: Lance Storm by pinfall with help from Mikey Whipwreck.
* Dudley Boyz vs. Balls Mahoney & Masato Tanaka (Tag Team Championship)
This was an extremely action packed match for such big boys. Just as the match started to resemble a match instead of a brawl, it turned into a brawl again. Balls and Tanaka took three solid chair shots to the head each and Tanaka was able to kick out of the 3-D. Axl handcuffed Big Dick to the ring post as Bubba Ray and D-Von argued because they didn't get the pin after the 3-D. As the Dudleys took control and brought tables into the ring, Rob Van Dam and Sabu hit the ring. Sabu and RVD set the Dudleys up on the tables and nailed them from off the top ropes.
Winners: Masato Tanaka & Balls Mahoney by pinfall. !New Champions!
