This is an alternate reality of what would have happened had the ECW not died back in early 2001. I'm going to rebook the storylines from January 2001 through the decade, and try to keep the talent availability, and roster moves as realistic as I can to the changes that occured within the industry through the decade. Lets have a little fun with what could have been of the ECW, had it never died, and lost its core fanbase in January of 2001. Lets put some of that 20/20 hindsight to use, and pretend that Vince Mcmahon actually takes Paul Heyman, and the ECW seriously.
The following is actual fact, and a description of events that occured in January of 2001:
January 13th, 2001: Just 1 week after the Guilty as Charged PPV, The ECW holds it's final show in Pine Bluff Arkansas. The company soon cancels its March 11th Living Dangerously PPV, and prepares to file for Bankruptcy in the spring.
Meanwhile, SEG, parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship is also on the verge of filing for bankruptcy, after a long, draining battle to secure legal sanctioning from state athletic commisions, as well as a majority of their top drawing talent leaving the company to the rival Japanese Pride FC promotion(Vitor Belfort, Mark Coleman, Mark Kerr, Royce Gracie), retiring(Frank Shamrock, Bas Rutten), or persuing other career endeveors, such as pro wrestling(Don Frye, Ken Shamrock).
Executives of the Las Vegas based "Station Casinos" casino chain, Frank, and Lorenzo Fertitta, and their bussiness partner Dana White approached SEG to purchase the UFC in late 2000, and in January 2001, the men purchased the UFC for $2 million under the parent entity of Zuffa LLC. Lorenzo Fertitta made this statement to Fighters Only magazine about the purchase:
"I had my attorneys tell me that I was crazy because I wasn't buying anything. I was paying $2 million and they were saying `What are you getting? I said `What you don't understand is I'm getting the most valuable thing that I could possibly have, which is those three letters: UFC. That is what's going to make this thing work. Everybody knows that brand, whether they like it or they don't like it, they react to it."
...And, this is where the Fan Fiction starts:
February 1st 2001:
Breaking news in the Pro Wrestling industry:
Vince Mcmahon's WWF buys the ECW for an undisclosed amount, saving the company from bankruptcy. Mcmahon was inspired by the recent buyout of the ailing UFC by Zuffa, and seen the potential threat that the company was to the WWF's PPV marketshare in the future. Zuffa's new UFC relaunch will debut on the 23rd of this month at their UFC 30 ppv, to be held in Atlantic City, NJ. The ECW will hold their first show under new management on the 16th of this month, to be held at the ECW arena in Philadelphia.
In a statement issued to the press, Mcmahon made the following statements:
"The ECW attracts a different brand of wrestling fans. A demographic of 18-35 year old men that we feel we can appeal to better with the ECW brand than what we can with the WWF, which is meant for a more broad, general audience. Throughout the history of wrestling, there has always been different types of wrestling for different types of fans. In the same way that the WCW apealed to the southern, blue coller, country fans of the south with their "Rasslin" style in the 80's, and early 90's, the ECW appeals to the type of wrestling fans that think they know it all. The types of fans that have all of the inside information, and a general knowledge of how the Pro Wrestling industry works behind the curtains thanks to "dirt sheet" magazines, and the rise of the internet. The ECW also has a trademark style of wrestling that appeals to people outside of the traditional pro wrestling fan base. The "Spot-Fest", weapon based violence style would never be very successfull among the majority of the WWF's fanbase, but there is a different demographic that the ECW attracts, a demographic that would not usually be interested in the WWF's brand. After the backlash from sponsers in recent years over the WWF's sleazy "Attitude" style, which was inspired by the ECW, and used by the WWF to overcome the more traditional WCW in the Monday night ratings war, we had to tone down our product to please our sponsers. Most of our sponsers are family oriented companies(Stridex, Castrol GTX, Mars Candy). With the ECW's edgier fanbase we believe we have a demographic that is attractive to edgier sponsers, which should allow us to continue to allow the ECW to push the envelope in the way that the company has in the past decade, all the while maintaining that rabid fanbase that it still has. Paul Heyman came to me like a man, and asked me for help. He convinced me that the ECW had a deep underground nationwide following. The thing that conviced me was their show in Los Angeles 6 months ago at their Heatwave ppv. I seen the biggest crowd in the history of the company, and I realized that it was a company that was about to die from bad management. I made loans to Heyman to keep the ECW alive, substantial loans of money that I knew I would probobly never see returned. Paul came to me, and told me that the loans were not enough. Paul convinced me of the potential of the three letters(ECW), and I've decided to make an investment in the brand. We(the WWF) are going to assume complete ownership of the brand."
"I think that Zuffa has the bussiness savy, and the money to give the UFC a solid push in the PPV market, especially among the ECW demographic. In order to remain competitive among that demographic, the WWF has officially purchased the ECW."
"The ECW will resume operations with an event at the ECW Arena on February the 16th, and will return to a bi monthly PPV schedule starting with Living Dangerously to be held as planned on March 11th. We have officially bought the ECW Arena, and the place will be undergoing some renovations. The ECW Arena will be transformed into a television studio, and will be the permanent homebase of the company. Paul Hayman will be kept on the payroll as executive commisioner, and will remain in command over most of the company's wrestling related decision making. Hayman was responsible for the ECW's trademark "R Rated" style, and we want to keep that style. The bulk of the ECW's roster will remain intact, and the company will focus on getting back in the black financially, and returning to cable tv in the year 2001. Until we find a new cable network for the program, the ECW will continue to operate in the same small scale, "grass roots" manner that it did before they debuted on TNN in 1999. ECW Hardcore TV will run in syndication with an hour long program leading up to the bi monthly PPVs, and the traditional ECW "Super Card" events at the ECW arena taking place during the months in between PPV's. ECW PPV's, merchandise, and programming will be much more widely available through WWF home video, WWF.com, and various other means of cross promotion."

"You foul mouthed fans that have been the center of the ECW's bad reputation. Lets just face it, you people almost killed this company, and at this time I would like to ask each and every one of you to leave the building"
Mcmahon gets sick heat from the Philly crowd when he threatens to move the ECW out of the
"Sh*thole, that is Philadelphia, and into a real wrestling city like New York." "The ECW will go down the crapper just like the Eagles, just like the 76ers, just like the Flyers. This city is worthless."
Hayman comes out and gets booed out of Philly with the "You Sold Out!" chants, before he asks Vince
"What are you doing? This is not what you promised me when you made the deal."
"What did you expect Paul? You danced with the Devil, and sold your soul. Do you really expect this company to just continue on like it was? You work for me now. I saved you, and you owe me."

After recovering his senses, Hayman screams into the microphone
"As executive comissioner of all wrestling desicions in the ECW, I officially strip all ECW titles! You son of a bitch sell outs don't deserve these titles!"
Paul gives the Tag belts to Dreamer, and the Sandman, and the world title to RVD, thanks them for their loyalty, and offers the belts as a promise to pay them everything that he owes them.
He then picks up the TV title, looks at it for a while, laughs, then says
"Well, I guess we won't be needing this belt anymore."
Paul then shoots about the TV deal on TNN, and says that the ECW will return to tv, but
"until we do, we have to go back to the old school days of the ECW. We have to go back to that underground state of mind that we had in 1996. I dedicate this TV title to the fans of the ECW. If the world aint ready for the ECW, than F*ck the world! We don't need them, we've got our fans. This title is now the FTW title, named in the honor of the ECW fans!

If it does, you will sign my contract. If you win the match against the APA at Hardcore Heaven, you will have your precious belts, but if you lose, hahaha. If you lose Dreamer. Sandman. The boss is going to be looking to collect his bounty. Hahahahahahaha!"
Tommy Dreamer, and the Sandman sign the Sinister Minister's contract with blood from their foreheads, and agree to put their souls on the line for the ECW Tag Team championships at Hardcore Heaven.
Super Crazy vs La Parka
Before the two luchadores begin their highly anticipated match, Steve Corino, CW Anderson, and Jack Victory come out, and interrupt the match.
Corino says that the Luchadores should go back to Mexico, and that they are taking jobs away from good old fashion American wrestlers that are more deserving of the job, and the airtime. After a few more diparaging remarks about spanish culture, Super Crazy, and La Parka attack Corino, and CW to begin an inpromptu tag match
Super Crazy & La Parka vs Steve Corino & CW Anderson(with Jack Victory)
Crazy, and La Parka defeated Steve Corino, and CW Anderson after 2 Cold Scorpio interfered and cost Corino, and CW Anderson the match at 8:59
The next segment begins with the Unholy Alliance cutting a prerecorded boiler room promo together with the Sinister Minister doing all of the talking.
The Minister says that Hardcore Heaven will be a turning point in the Unholy Alliance's battle for souls, starting with Dreamer, and the Sandman. The Minister then goes on to say that Spike Dudley, Balls Mahoney, and Jerry Lynn will suffer the same fate. The Minister says that Spike Dudley may be the giant killer of the ECW, but Vader is no ordinary giant.
"At Hardcore Heaven the David vs Goliath story will be rewritten, and Spike you may not have a soul left to take after Vader gets through with you."
The Minister then gives the spotlight of the promo to Axle Rotten, who has his fists wrapped in hemp rope, and dipped in broken glass.
Axle says that he wants to show Balls Mahoney real pain. Axle challenges Balls to a Taipei Death Match at Hardcore Heaven. The Minister concludes that Jerry Lynn is a thorn in the side of the UA, and that he will be taken care of at Hardcore Heaven by Rhino.
Juventud Guerrera vs Tony Mamaluke(with Guido, and Sal)
This weeks episode concludes with Juvy Guerrerro pinning Tony Mamaluke after 8:51. Guerrerro takes out the FBI, as Joey Styles reminds us that
"Guerrero was involved in one of the greatest matches in recent ECW history at last months Cyberslam against Kid Kash. The two men wrestled to an incredible 20 minute time limit draw."
Kid Kash comes out after the match, and issues a respectful challenge to Juvy for a rematch at Hardcore Heaven 2K1. Juvy accepts.

TiePei Death Match II

The program opens with a message that tonights program is Rated R, and is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
The disclaimer is followed by a prerecorded opening from Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner outside the arena earlier as the fans were in line to enter the venue. The fans in line to get in are going crazy as Styles opens the show with:
"Welcome to Hardcore Heaven 2001!"
Styles, and Gertner do a brief rundown of the card until they are interrupted by a limo that pulls up alongside them. 5 smoking hot women climb out of the limo, wearing barely anything, as the fans outside the arena go crazy for them. After the women pile out of the limo, the fans go ape S*^$ for who climbs out of the limo next. It's none other than....
The Godfather climbs out of the Limo, and gets a loud pop from the fans outside the arena waiting to get in. The Godfather tells Joey Styles that he has found his new home, and that
"Tonight, its uncensored baby, its going to be a good time!"
Joel Gertner is besides himself, as the Godfather, and his bad A$$ ho's make their way into the arena.
And the show begins!
Kid Kash vs Juventud Guerrera II
Kash, and Guerrera wrestle a clean match with no chairs, or tables used, and still manage to captivate the crowd with a stiff, intense, fast paced, high flying match that is just as good as, if not better than their early match of the year candidate at Cyberslam 2K1(available now on ECW home video!).
Guerrera gets cut late in the match, and begins to bleed profusely from the forehead. The match goes into the 19 minute mark, with a strict 20 minute ppv time limit imposed on the contest. Kid Kash reverses Juvy into a rollup pin at 19:58 of the match. The ref counts a three count, but the bell rings just before his hand hits the mat for the third count. The ref signals Kid Kash the winner of the match, as he begins to celebrate as his theme song hits the speakers.
The ringside timekeeper jumps up on the apron, and disputes the decision with the ref, as Juvy is protesting the call. The referee signals for the music to be cut as he grabs a microphone, and says that a review of the final seconds of the match is needed to ensure the proper call was made. The referee joins Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner at their ringside broadcasting booth for a review of the replay. After a review, the referee overturns the decision, and rules the match a time limit draw. The crowd boos, and Kash is very angry. The crowd begins to chant
"Five More Minutes!"
Paul Hayman comes out with his headset on, and demands the wrestlers to go five more minutes.
Juvy, and Kash wrestle another five minutes, this time trading chair shots, and eventually bringing in a table to the ring. Kash prepares to powerbomb Juvy through the table off of the top rope as the 5 minute clock expires. Kash lifts Juvy up onto his shoulders, but Juvy reverses, and hurricanranas Kash through the table. Juvy fails to cover Kash due to exhaustion, and the match ends in a 25 minute time limit draw.
The ECW crowd is very pleased with the match with some very enthusiastic "ECW!" chants enveloping the exhausted wrestlers at the end of the match.
2 Cold Scorpio vs AJ Styles
AJ Styles defeated 2 Cold Scorpio with a clean pinfall at 5:22 in his ECW debut. Steve Corino, and CW Anderson attack Scorpio after the match with a leather strap.
Corino applauds Styles clean "Old School" wrestling style, and the impressive victory over Scorpio. AJ Styles joins Steve Corino, and CW Anderson's Old School Posse, and vow to renew the old school "Rasslin" style in the ECW, and rid the scum hardcore style, as well as the legends of the "Old School" Ecw, such as 2 Cold Scorpio.
"Its time for the new generation of Old School to take over!"
Tiepei Death Match II
Balls Mahoney vs Axle Rotten(with the Sinister Minister).
Balls, and Axle both come out with taped fists, dipped in broken shards of glass. Both men circle the ring before the match allowing the crowd to touch, and see the glass on their fists is indeed real.
Axle Rotten is accompanied to the ring with the Sinister Minister, who circles the ring laughing as Balls, and Axle beat each other into a bloody pulp.
Blood soaks, and stains the ECW ring red, as both men gig gushers into their foreheads. Balls, and Axle bleed all over each other, and the ring, as they brawl with chairs, and a cheese grater for 8 minutes. After Balls takes a cheese grater to Axle, he diverts his attention to the Sinister Minister, who tries to interfere in the match. Balls teases to take the cheese grater to the Minister, but Axle turns him around, and blows a fireball into his face. Axle gets the pin at 8:49, and improves his record in TiePei Death Matches to 2-0.
Rhino(with the Sinister Minister) vs Jerry Lynn
Rhino squashes Jerry Lynn in the ring for 7 minutes of the match. Lynn has no offense that works on Rhino, and gets hammered with power moves by Rhino. The Minister interferes in the match with a chair, and it appears to be over after Rhino made the cover for the pin. 1..2..
Lynn kicked out. Lynn gets tossed out of the ring, and attacked by Yoshihiro Tajiri, and Mikey Whipreck as the Minister, and Rhino distract the ref by claiming a slow count.
Super Crazy, La Parka, and Psicosis come out and help Jerry Lynn.
Psicosis, and Super Crazy brawl with Whipreck, and Tajiri on the outside, with Crazy making his way to the balcony for a suicide back flip. Rhino makes his way outside the ring, and continues to hammer on Jerry Lynn. As Rhino batters Lynn on the outside, the Minister continues to argue with the ref, and even has him by the throat at this point in a corner. La Parka enters the ring with a chair, and does his trademark "chair guitar" dance behind the Minister as he is choking the ref in the corner. The crowd gives the biggest pop of the night as La Parka turns the Sinister Minister around, and blasts him with a chair.
"E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!"
The Minister rolls out of the ring unconsious, and La Parka runs to aid Super Crazy, and Psicosis battle Whipreck, and Tajiri near the entrance ramp. Psicosis, Crazy, and La Parka enjoy a 3 on 2 advantage until....
the Insane Clown Posse make their return to the ECW, and join the Unholy Alliance by aiding Tajiri, and Whipreck.
Rhino rolls the battered, and beaten Jerry Lynn back into the ring. Lynn is just pathetically beaten down, and can barely lift his head off the ground. Rhino notices that the Minister has been dispatched on the outside of the ring. As he looks over the ropes down at the Minister wondering what happened, Jerry Lynn gets a quick roll up pin from behind(with a super fast count from a biased ref) for the win at 13:34. Rhino snaps after the match, and powerbombs the ref 3 times, and attacks an already battered Lynn before carrying the Minister to the back on his shoulders. Jerry Lynn, and the referee are both carted off on stretchers by EMT's.
Shane Douglas(With Francine) vs Justin Credible
Shane Douglas weathers an early storm from Credible, including being suplexed through a table. Douglas outgrapples Credible with clean wrestling through the later parts of the match. Credible regained the momentum of the contest at the 10 minute mark after he brought his Kendo stick into the match. Credible busts a cut open on Douglas' forehead with his cane, Francine attacks Justin in the ring with a chair before Justin can get the pin on Douglas. Justin no sells the chair shot, and gives Francine his tombstone finishing move.
Justin is robbed of the win again as Tammy L. Sytch runs out with Chris Candido, and distracts the ref while Justin is attempting to get the pin on Douglas, and send him into retirement once, and for all.
Terry Funk runs out right behind them, and grabs Candido by the hair as he attempts to enter the ring.
Funk takes it to Candido to help Justin pin Douglas into retirement. 1..2..
Bam Bam Bigelow runs out and saves Shane Douglas with a chair while Tammy distracts the ref.
Bigelow loses control of the chair momentarily, and brawls with Justin Credible, as Tammy L. Sytch is still distracting the referee with her scantily clad outfit of the evening. Bigelow regains the chair, but Just as Bigelow swings the chair at Credible, Justin moves out of the way. Bam Bam cracks Douglas on accident, and is then taken out by Credible with a super kick to the chair Bam Bam is holding, into his face.
Shane Douglas is out cold, and Justin Credible is about to pin him to finish his career, before an old friend of Shane's makes his surprise return to the ECW......
"DEAN MALENKO IS BAAAAAAACK!!!!"
screams Joey Styles.
Malenko runs in, cracks Credible in the back with a chair, and rolls Douglas on top of him for the win after 10:22.
With the victory, Justin Credible is forced to retire from the ECW, and Dean Malenko is reunited with the Triple Threat, who are awkwardly enough, 4 men strong with Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Dean Malenko. The 4 men pose together in the ring with their valets Francine, and Tammy L. Sytch as the crowd blows the roof off of the arena with a mixture of boos, and cheers. Douglas tells the crowd that Terry Funk will be retired next, and that he will be the next ECW World Champion. On their way to the back dressing room, Douglas, and Bam Bam have some strong words with each other, and are visibly not getting along at all. Bigelow is fed up with Chris Candido, and Shane keeps him from going after him, while scolding him for his botched run in at the same time, as they make their way to the back.
David vs Goliath Match
Vader(with the Sinister Minister) vs Spike Dudley
Vader decimates poor Spike Dudley in a 4 minute squash match. Spike looked to get an early upset after Acid Dropping Vader in the opening seconds of the match, but Vader kicked out, and destroyed Spike through the remainder of the contest. Spike was thrown into the 6th row of the crowd, and was crowd surfed around the arena before being power bombed through a flaming table, and pinned at the 4 minute mark. Spike Dudley is carted off on a stretcher by EMT's after the match, but before they can get him to the backstage area, Vader attacks the EMT's, and sends Spike's stretcher rolling off the entrance ramp, with Spike strapped in. Vader destroys both of the EMT's, including the female, who is powerbombed through a nearby table.
Stairway to Hell Match
for the ECW World Tag Team Championship
The APA(Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw, with the Sinister Minister)(Champions)
Tommy Dreamer, and The Sandman
Prior to the match, Two 12 foot ladders are set up at ringside, and a thick coil of shiny barbed wire is suspended from a short chain over the ring, hanging just underneath the suspended scaffold in place for the evenings main event.
The ECW tag team champions, the APA(Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw) make their way to the ring first with the Sinister Minister. The APA's entry is a grand one with the dark lighting, and fog effects. Walking behind the APA, and the Minister to the ring are 4 druids(ECW Jobbers/ring crew, Don. E. Allen, Broad Street Bully et al., in black hooded cloaks) pushing a large, old school Undertaker style casket to the ringside area.
Nailed to the lid of the casket is the contract that Dreamer, and the Sandman inked with their blood, putting their very souls on the line for the contest for the ECW Tag Team championships. After the APA finally make it into the ring, and the casket is set up at ringside, Metallica's Enter Sandman hits the P.A., and the crowd pops huge.
Dreamer, and the Sandman make a raucus entrance to the arena with beers, and Kendo sticks in hand. Dreamer, and the Sandman take out the Druids with their canes after a quick, curious inspection of the ringside casket, which clearly has both men a little nerveous.
Dreamer, and the Sandman finally make it into the ring, and the match is on with a wild double brawl in the ring with the Canes, and chairs. The Minister then pushes both ladders into the ring, and the 4 men brawl for 8 minutes until both ladders are set up side by side in the center of the ring. Tommy Dreamer takes his brawl with Bradshaw outside the ring, and into the crowd, as the Sandman, and Ron Simmons simultaneously ascend the ladders in persuit of the barbed wire. Simmons, and the Sandman both battle for possession over the roll of barbed wire atop the two ladders in the center of the ring until Ron Simmons eventually wraps the barbed wire around the Sandmans neck, and head. The two men battling tips both ladders over simultaneously sending Ron Simmons down racking himself on the ropes, as the Sandman plummets over the ropes, and into Styles, and Gertners ringside broadcasting booth, with the roll of barbed wire wrapped around his head.
"E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!"
The Sandman is picked up by the druids, and put inside the casket at ringside as Tommy Dreamer, and Bradshaw return to the ring. The Sandman lay unconsious, wrapped in barbed wire in the casket as Bradshaw, and Ron Simmons double team Tommy Dreamer. The Sinister Minister sets up a table in the ring, wraps it with barbed wire, and sprinkles it with thumb tacks from a sack found underneath the ring. The APA super powerbomb Tommy Dreamer through the barbed wire, thumb tack table off of the top rope, and roll him into the casket.
Dreamer, and the Sandman are locked into the casket. The druids roll the casket to an open area in the arena, and set the casket on fire.
The APA stands victorious in the ring with the Tag Team championship belts, as the Minister says that the carnage has only begun here in the ECW. The entire Unholy Alliance unite in the ring to hot boos from the crowd, as The Sinister Minister, Vader, Rhino, Tajiri, Whipreck, Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Axle Rotten, and the Insane Clown Posse pose together in the ring.
Amish Roadkill, Danny Doring, and Dawn Marie cut a prerecorded backstage promo saying that they will go after the tag team belts.
Dawn unveils Roadkills new look, with some modern street clothes, which Roadkill visibly does not feel comfortable with. Doring hogs the spotlight of the promo with Dawn primping Roadkill in the background, until Doring says something that catches Dawn's attention. Doring says that he is the hottest guy in the ECW, with the hottest chick by his side now. Dawn gets angry, and says that she is with the hottest guy in the ECW, but it isn't Doring. It's Roadkill. Dawn tells Doring that he is a loser, and Doring is visibly about to boil over with jealosy. The promo ends with Dawn asking Roadkill
"Why are you even friends with this loser, hunny he is probobly why we weren't even put on the PPV tonight."
FTW Title Match
Rey Mysterio vs Chris Candido(chamion)
Rey Mysterio, and Chris Candido wrestle the best match of the evening, a clean, technical 16 minute match with Mysterio getting the pin for the title, with no run ins, or interferance. Mysterio is the clear fan favorite among the ECW fans judging by their sheer volume during the match, and the reaction to his victory. Mysterio recieves a standing ovation from the ECW fans as he exits the arena, and before he leaves he gets a very loud intense chant of
"Welcome Back! Welcome Back! Welcome Back!"
Candido is vehement after the contest, and is arguing with Tammy at ringside about something. After Rey exits, Candido gets back into the ring, very angry, and screams for Bam Bam
"What Happened! I lost my belt! What happened to you!".
Candido reveals that Bigelow was supposed to run in, and help Candido retain his belt. Bam Bam comes out, and looks to be fed up with the Triple Threat.
Bigelow snatches the microphone out of Candido's hand, and shoots about how he is tired of doing the dirty work for the Triple Threat. Bam Bam says he wants a title of his own, and denounces the Triple Threat.
"F*** THE TRIPLE THREAT!"
screams Bigelow before he attacks Candido. The crowd pops for Bigelows face turn, as he throws Candido out of the ring, and puts Tammy into the power bomb position, exposing her rear to the very happy crowd in the process. Before Bigelow can get the power bomb, he is attacked by Shane Douglas, and Dean Malenko. Douglas, Malenko, and Candido pose in the ring over a beaten Bigelow with Francine, and Tammy Sytch as the new Triple Threat.
The Godfather comes out and shoots to the ECW fans next.
The Godfather shoots about how the WWF was a little too tame for him, and that he is glad to be in the ECW, where he can be himself.
"As my gift to you, Ladies, Show em what you GOT!"
Each of the 5 women turn the arena upside down after they shockingly reveal their breasts to the live audience.
"Do You Like?"
"E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!"
The Godfather ends his promo by declaring,
"I'm Home baby!"
Joel Gertner leaves Joey Styles to do Commentary for the main event alone, and leaves to Join the Godfather's "Ho Train" to the backstage, with his walet in hand.
3 Way Dance Barbed Wire Scaffold Match
for the ECW World Championship.
Sabu vs Terry Funk vs New Jack(champion)
Each wrestler is introduced as he makes his way to the ring, which has had its ropes replaced with barbed wire.
The ring has been surrounded by tables set up on the outside, and their is a scaffold suspened 30 feet above the ring.
The only way the match can end is by pinfall in the ring below.
Sabu makes his way to the ring first, and instead of ascending the scaffold, Sabu pulls more tables out from under the ring. Sabu begins arranging tables inside the ring, as Terry Funk gets a huge pop from the arena as he makes his entrance. Funk looks at what Sabu is doing briefly before grabbing a chair, and going ahead up to the scaffold. While Funk is climbing up, Sabu finishes arranging a four table tower(2 towers side by side, 2 tables high) in the center of the ring.
Sabu begins his ascent up the scaffold as New Jacks theme music hits the P.A., and the crowd pops louder than the other 2 wrestlers entrances. New Jack brings his trademark trashcan full of weapons to the ring(as well as the ECW World Title belt), and places them nearby on the outside of the ring before he makes his climb.
Sabu, and Terry Funk immediately attack each other while New Jack is making his climb up the ladder. Funk is cracking Sabu with his chair before New Jack attacks funk. The 3 men take turns brawling with each other, exchanging chair shots, and puches high up on the scaffold, with several teases of a fall. Sabu pulls out his trademark shank(long nail) out of his boot, and opens up cuts on the foreheads of New Jack, and Terry Funk at the 4 minute mark.
Terry Funk then charges into Sabu, and the two men plummet off of the scaffold together, and into the tower of tables below.
The entire arena stands on their feet, and the E! C! W! chants can be heard for miles.
Terry Funk fell all the way through 2 tables, and smacked into the ring canvas with a frightening thud, while Sabu smashed through the first table, and landed on the table below it, which failed to break(Funk hit first, with Sabu kind of landing on him, and the other table at the same time.). After a brief recovery period, Terry Funk rises to his feet, and pushes Sabu's body fully onto the remaining table. Funk clears the debris off of Sabu, while puching him in the face, and all the while kind of laying on him, resting at the same time.
New Jack performs a suicide dive off of the scaffold onto Funk, and Sabu through the table in the ring below.
E! C! W! E! (OH! MY! GOOOOOOOOD!)C! W! E! C! W!
The three men lay bloodied in the ring amongst a mess of broken table shards as the ECW crowd serenades them with ECW chants. Terry Funk gets a pop by rising to his feet first. Funk makes his way outside the ring going after New Jacks trash can of weapons. Sabu, and New Jack eventually rise and begin brawling in the ring. Funk throws the trashcan into the ring scattering weapons everywhere, and goes crazy throwning multiple chairs into the ring. Sabu whips New Jack into the corner, slamming New Jack into the barbed wire. Sabu sets up a chair, and does his running springboard dive at New Jack, who moves out of the way sending Sabu flying into the corner of the barbed wire, entangling his hair, ripping his shorts, and opening a huge gash across the side of his torso, which is gushing blood.
Sabu gets a roll of tape from underneath the ring, and proceeds to wrap his entire torso while Terry Funk, and New Jack battle in the ring with weapons, and chairs.
Sabu finally re enters the ring, wrapped in tape, and soaked in blood, with ripped pants. The 3 wrestlers brawl with chairs, guitars, crutches, and a staple gun.
Sabu sends New Jack into the Barbed Wire ropes, and then charges him. New Jack ducks under Sabu, and sends him flying outside the ring through one of the ringside tables.
Terry Funk gives New Jack a piledriver onto a chair, and makes the cover for the pin at 11:42.
Terry Funk is the new ECW World Champion, and the 3 wrestlers embrace with respect after the match. New Jack hands the title over to Funk, and after a brief celebration in the crowd with the fans, the 3 wrestlers raise each others hands in the center of the ring, battered, bloody, and beaten as the crowd gives the loudest pop of the evening.
The celebration is abruptly cut short as...
police storm the arena and enter the ring to take each of the 3 wrestlers into custody.
The crowd boos the roof off of the place as Funk, New Jack, and Sabu are forcibly handcuffed in the ring. Paul Hayman runs out and demands to know what the hell is going on.
3 men come out to the entrance ramp wearing slacks, with white button up office shirts, and glasses. It's...
Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Cyrus, the Right to Censor. The 3 men are pelted with trash, and lynched with boos as Sabu, New Jack, and Terry Funk are carried out of the arena in handcuffs by police. As the men are escorted out of the building, Cyrus speaks to Paul Hayman.
"You crossed the line tonight Paul. Vince has sent us to keep an eye on the ECW, and tonight was too much. Everything is about to change here in the ECW arena, starting tonight. There will be no more blood, no more tables, no more nudity. That's it Paul. Your done."
Paul Hayman charges after Cyrus out of anger, and the program ends with Paul being forcibly taken into police custody.

WWF/ECW.com, Home Video Mail Order, and broadcast through syndication on regional television.
Hour long episode(44:00+ commercials) consists of highlights of the May 13th Hardcore Heaven 2K1 PPV.
Joey Styles opens the show solo from the studio:
Ladies, and gentleman, we have a new ECW World Champion. Terry Funk, the Hardcore Icon, has recaptured the ECW Title by defeating Sabu, and the champion New Jack in one of the most violent wrestling matches in the history of the industry. The 3 men almost killed each other in a 3 way dance barbed wire scaffold match that has to be seen to be believed.
Terry Funk, nearly 60 years old somhow managed to outlast 2 of the most violent wrestlers in the history of the ECW, and at the end of the evening he was crowned the World Champion of the ECW once again.
However, after the match, all 3 wrestlers were arrested, and Vince Mcmahon has once again attempted to take total control of the company as The Right To Censor, Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Cyrus the Virus cut the celebration short. ECW Executive Commisioner Paul Hayman was arrested along with New Jack, Sabu, and the ECW World Champion Terry Funk.
Vince Mcmahon was banned from appearing in the ECW after Living Dangerously 2001, and he has personally sent Cyrus, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan from Connecticut to tone down the ECW.
What happened to Paul Hayman? What about the ECW Champion Terry Funk? Are they still in Jai...
Joey is interupted as Cyrus, Stevie, and Bull approach him in the studio
Whoa! Whoa, Whoa..
Joey Styles my good old friend good to see you again. I just got off the phone with the boss in Connecticut, and I have a late breaking development for the ECW. You my good friend have officially been fired. Your services are no longer needed in the ECW my friend
Wait a minute! Where is Paul?!? You have no authority here!
Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan grab Joey, and Cyrus slaps him across the face. As Stevie, and Bull hold Joey, Cryrus grabs joey by the face, gets up close to him, and says:
You think Vince was just going to let the ECW get away with a show like Hardcore Heaven last week? HuH! I don't think so. That was totally out of line. The nudity, the blood, the violence, the language, its all over Joey. Vince sent us here to change the ECW from the inside out.
Now, get this peice of trash out of my building!
Richards, and Bull take Joey out of the building, and Cyrus shoots about how he, Stevie, and Bull are the Quality Control of ECW, and they were sent by Vince to make the ECW more suitable for television.
The rest of the show consists of highly censored highlights of the PPV presented by Cyrus, and Stevie Richards. In between matches that are shown(Juvy vs Cash, Scorpio vs Styles, Douglas vs Credible, Mysterio vs Candido), Stevie, Cyrus, and Bull harrass the camera man, and production crew that are in the studio with them filming the episode, and threaten each of them to be fired, and replaced with WWF employees that are more professional.
Just before the end of the Broadcast...
Paul Hayman, Sabu, New Jack, Terry Funk, and Joey Styles storm the studio where the show is being taped.
Styles has apparently bailed each of them out of Jail, as each man is still wearing the same outfit that they were in their PPV match. Sabu, New Jack, Funk, and Hayman take out Cyrus, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan, and run them out of the studio in a chaotic scene where the camera falls down to give the viewers a sideways/upside down view of the chaos, as the cameramen, and filming crew join in to help rid the studio of Cyrus, Buchanan, and Stevie.
Styles regains his headset before the end of the broadcast, and tells everyone to tune in next week, as Sabu, Funk, and New Jack, still bloodied, and dirty from their PPV match, and a few evenings in the county slammer thank Joey Styles for bailing them out of Jail.
**This scene was filmed immediately after the Hardcore Heaven PPV to make it appear that all the wrestlers had come strait from the Jail to the studio**
The following questions are asked as a closing highlight package of the more bloody, extreme moments that Cyrus, and Stevie wouldn't allow to be shown plays from Hardcore Heaven 2K1(Balls vs Axle TiePei Death Match, Stairway to Hell match for Tag Team Championship, Godfathers controversial ECW debut with his ho's, and the main event):
What impact will the returning Dean Malenko have on the ECW with the Triple Threat? Will he help Shane Douglas win the ECW World Title, and put his arch rival Terry Funk away for good?
What the Hell did the Unholy Alliance do to the Sandman, and Tommy Dreamer? What are the Sinister Minister's intentions in the ECW? What will be the Alliance's next move, and more importantly, who in the ECW can stop them?
What is Vince Mcmahon trying to do with the ECW by sending Cyrus, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan as Quality Control? Was the ECW's controversial Hardcore Heaven 2K1 PPV over the line? Did it open the floodgates for problems to come from Connecticut?
Tune in next week to ECW Hardcore TV to find out.

WWF/ECW.com, Home Video Mail Order, and broadcast through syndication on regional television.
Hour long episode(44:00+ commercials) consists of footage shot at a TV taping on May the 19th 2001.
The Show opens with Paul Hayman in the center of the ECW ring holding a microphone as the crowd blessess him with the beloved chants of
E! C! W!
Paul is in a very somber, serious mood as he begins to speak in a quiet, calm manner:
A few weeks ago, we here at the ECW worked very hard to put together a show for our fans that we thought would, as we say in the industry "Give them their money's worth". We had a great show at Hardcore Heaven. Everybody worked real hard, and I am very proud of the show that we put on for our core fans.
The crowd interupts him with cheer, and applause.
Paul continues about how, and why he had to sell the ECW to Vince Mcmahon. He shoots that without the deal, there would be no ECW right now,
We wouldn't even be here tonight. Vince made some promises that he didn't keep.
He added. Paul then goes on to talk about the deal they made at Living Dangerously 2K1, and states that he is pissed about spending the weekend in the slammer, and that the post match celebration, one of the greatest moments in ECW history, was cut short by
Your piece of trash, failed gimmick, sell out, pieces of sh*t Right to Censor. They have no rights here, If I see them again, they will get tossed out on their ass. We have no place for Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, or Cyrus the virus in the ECW. We don't need them. They are a gimmick, and we don't need any gimmicks here in the ECW
Paul is interupted when Cyrus(along with Bull Buchanan, and Stevie Richards) walks out of the entryway and stands beside the new mini jumbotron in the arena by the walkway ramp.
Cyrus then says:
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Paul hold up. You got a big mouth, but you are quick to forget that you are not the boss here any more. Paul You don't sign the checks anymore, you couldn't handle the job! You, good sir, are a lackey, and you work for my boss. Vince Mcmahon. I'm here, sent by Vince to change the ECW from the inside out. Hardcore Heaven was over the line. Too much nudity, too much blood, too much violence, and too much crappy wrestling. We are here to insure the quality of Vince's ECW product. It's not your product anymore Paul, It's not your baby anymore. Bull Buchanan, Stevie Richards, and I have been hired by Vince to clean up the ECW's garbage wrestling. You can consider us Quality Control.
The crowd pops as Paul gets furious. He exits the ring, and begins to charge the ramp when...
Vince Mcmahon appears on the jumbotron live via sattelite from Connecticut. Paul stops dead in his tracks.
Vince is in a great, joyfull mood, and says hello to Paul, Quality Control, and the fans in attendance who respond with vicious boos.
Vince then tells Paul that their are new rules to be implemented in the ECW tonight, and shall remain standard regulation in the company while it is owned by the WWF.
We're not going to pretend that I don't own the ECW Paul. You may have won your match at Living Dangerously with your thugs helping you, but we're not going to pretend. I own the ECW Paul. You work for me as Executive Commisioner of all wrestling related decision making remember that Paul?
Building security guards in WWF shirts slowly work their way out of the back and fill into the arena as Vince is speaking to Paul.
Starting immediately, all ECW film, and production crew, referees, commentators, and backstage crew are to be escorted from the building. We are not happy with your product Paul, and it's time to start making changes in the ECW. I've brought in a nice crew from connecticut to take care of the ECW shows from now on.
All ECW film, and production crew including referees, cameramen, Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner are forcibly escorted from the building as WWF cameramen, and production crew take over the show. WWF referees assume the position for tonights matches.
Vince continues that all ECW rules are to be switched to the standard WWF match rules starting immediately.
No more nudity, no more foul language, no more blood, no more tables and/or weapons, and no more wild, senseless brawling
Vince declares, as the angry crowd lynches him with boos, and throws trash at the WWF crew members, the Jumbotron Vince is appearing on, and into the ring.
Vince concludes that
It's my show now Paul, Cyrus is head of my ECW Quality Control team, and he will be my new supervisor of the ECW brand, and if I were you, I'd be very carefull. Especially if you want to keep your job.
the transmission ends, and the screen goes black.
Paul looks angrily at Cyrus as he laughs at Paul. Paul snaps, and charges Cyrus anyways. Quality Control(Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan) beat Paul up as security(led by Bull Buchanan) takes him into custody, and escorts him out of the building.
Cyrus, and Stevie Richards take Joey Styles, and Joel Gertners spot at the broadcast booth, and proclaim
Let the show begin!
ECW World Tag Team Championship
Doring, and Amish Roadkill(with Dawn Marie) vs The APA(Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw, with the Sinister Minister, and the Insane Clown Posse, Violent J, and Shaggy 2 Dope)
Cyrus, and Richards comment that
Danny Doring is the kind of technically skilled athlete that the ECW needs more of This young man has a bright future in the ECW
Doring, and Roadkill hold their own against the APA with solid team work, and dominate the first 3 minutes of the match, even fending off the ICP, whom have taken a liking to Dawn Marie, and continue to taunt her through the course of the match.
As Roadkill wrestles Bradshaw, Dawn Marie jumps up on the apron next to Danny Doring to escape the ICP's unwelcomed advances. Doring kicks Violent J, and Shaggy 2 Dope to the ground from the apron, and then does a hip jiggling Rick Rude dance towards Dawn Marie after helping her. Dawn doesn't like it, and smacks Doring on the face.
Roadkill has Bradshaw ready for the pin after his "Amish Taker" finisher, but he looks up on the 2 count to see Danny Doring grow tired of Dawn's rejection, and disrespect, as he smacks Dawn Marie on the face, and grabs her by the neck. Roadkill quickly jumps up and nails Doring off of the apron and into the guardrail. Bradshaw rolls up a distracted Amish Roadkill for the pin as he checks to see if Dawn Marie is ok.
The APA narrowly escape an upset win by Doring, and Roadkill. The ICP continue to beat on Roadkill after the match as Danny Doring leaves Roadkill to get beaten. The ICP kidnap Dawn Marie, and exit with the APA, and the Sinister Minister. Roadkill recovers, and snaps when he realizes that Dawn has been taken.
-------------------------------------------- Steve Corino leads AJ Styles, and CW Anderson as the "Old School Posse" to the ring to begin the next segment.
Corino cuts a promo hyping up AJ Styles as the next big thing in pro wrestling, and says that with his, and CW's help, he is sure to be a star in wrestling. Corino then says that he will rid the ECW of trashy hardcore wrestling in favor of
Good ole' fashion Rasslin.
Corino then says that in order for new stars like him, and AJ to rise to the top, certain old time wrestlers need to be
Put out to pasture.
Corino says that 2 Cold Scorpio is done, and that we may have seen the last of him. He then adds that guys like Sabu, and Terry Funk are next. As Corino is dissing Funk, 2 Cold Scorpio attacks Corino, CW Anderson, and AJ Styles with a chair. Scorpio throws Styles, and Anderson out of the ring, and has finally gotten his hands on Corino for a 1 on 1 match:
2 Cold Scorpio vs Steve Corino
Scorpio out wrestles Steve Corino for 8 minutes before hitting the 450 splash for the victory. After the match Scorpio is attacked by AJ Styles, CW Anderson, and Steve Corino until the ECW World Champion Terry Funk come out to save him.
Terry Funk says that there are a lot of smart mouthed, spoiled youngsters running around the ECW these days, and that he is
About to start busting some young ASS!
Styles, Corino, and CW Anderson flee from Funk, and Scorpio.
Guido(with big Sal E. Graziano) vs Nova(with Chris Chetti
Guido pins Nova after 10 minutes. Graziano interfered, but Chris Chetti prevented Guido from getting the pin. Graziano takes out Chetti with a chair, and Guido gets Nova to tap to a boston crab.
After the match Guido cuts a promo denouncing the FBI comedy act gimmick, and says that its time to get the family back together, and that it's about to get serious. Guido shoots about how he has been lost in the mix in the ECW due to the goofy comedy act of the FBI. Guido asks
"How many title shots have I gotten, Huh?"
Guido says that it's about to get serious with the Italian wrestlers in the ECW. Guido, and Graziano then Question Chris Chetti's loyalty to his Italian Heritage as Chetti, and Nova exit the arena.
Chetti stops and turns around while Guido asks him if he is really an Italian. Guido says that Chetti should
join the family, or suffer the consequences.
Chetti blows Guido off, as he, and Nova retreat to the back.
---------------------------------------------------- The Triple Threat make their entrance to the arena to begin our next segment.
Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, and Dean Malenko make their way to the ring with Francine, and Tammy Lynn "Sunny" Sytch as the crowd gives them a standing ovation(even though they are heels) while they raise the Triple Threat hand sign up together in the ring.
Cut the Music.
Shane Douglas shoots about the new Triple Threat, and introduces the newest member of the group, "The Shooter" Dean Malenko.
Welcome Back! Welcome Back!Welcome Back!
the crowd chants at Dean with a standing ovation.
Shane Douglas then adds that he is the next ECW World Champion, saying that he will be the one to retire Terry Funk once, and for all. Shane then talks about Bam Bam Bigelow before Chris Candido takes the mic away, and cuts a promo about Bam Bam Bigelow costing him his ECW FTW Title. Chris almost hyperventilates before Shane, Malenko, and Sunny calm him down, and promise to help him get his belt back from Rey Mysterio Jr., and to get back at Bam Bam. Malenko then shoots about his days in the WCW, and the WWF. Malenko says that he doesn't have much time left as a wrestler, and that he want's to spend the final days of his career in the ECW helping the Triple Threat win championships, and helping to legitimize the company that helped get his career off the ground in the first place.
----------------------------------------------------- The Unholy Alliance cut a prerecorded promo from the boiler room of the ECW Arena.
The Sinister Minister says that the goofy battle between Paul Hayman, and Vince Mcmahon over the ECW is futile, and that
both of them will end up selling their souls for a piece of gold in the end
. He then goes on to Say that the Sandman, and Dreamer are in Hell, and that Jerry Lynn is the next soul that will join them in eternal damnation. The Minister says that Lynn has a fighting spirit, and that it will be too bad to lay it to rest. He then adds that Vince, and Paul don't even realize what is going on around them. That
the Unholy Alliance is consuming the ECW from the inside out. Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!
Axle Rotten then takes the spotlight of the promo with his trademark leather jacket, and barbed wire baseball bat.
Axle says that the pain has only begun for Balls Mahony, and that he, and Jerry Lynn are next to join the Sandman, and Dreamer in the inferno. The promo ends with the camera panning back to show the entire Unholy Alliance together, the Sinister Minister, Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Vader, Rhino, Yoshihiro Tajiri, Mikey Whipreck, Axle Rotten, and the Insane Clown Posse(Violent J, and Shaggy 2 Dope).
Dawn Marie is shown bound, and gagged in the possession of the Insane Clown Posse. The group of oddball freaks begin freakishly laughing together to draw an end to the promo.
The ECW crowd pops at the beginning of the next segment as The Godfather makes his way to the ring with a group of ho's that look raunchier than ever, and barely with any clothes on. Cyrus, Stevie, and Bull Buchanan confront the Godfather in the ring.
Wait a minute Mr. Godfather I don't think you got the recent memo from Connecticut, from the boss, you know... Vince Mcmahon.
F*ck Vince Mcmahon!
replies the Godfather.
What about my career? What about all of the stupid gimmicks, Papa Shango, The Supreme Fighting Machine with the gold chain, The Goodfather, Come on Man! This is my thing, and the ECW is my new place. These fans are different here. I can be myself here. F#ck Vince Mcmahon!
Stevie Richards gets the mike, and asks the Godfather
What happened man? You turned your career around in the WWF when you joined us before remember man? Remember the Goodfather? What happened to the Goodfather? We need that man back. Think about your career, come on join us. Think about Vince. Reprise the roll of the Goodfather, and help us guide these lost fans to the promised land with quality wrestling."
The Godfather ponders the offer for a second, and then replies
"F*ck Vince, and F&ck Quality Control!"
The Godfather attacks Bull Buchanan, and Stevie Richards, but is attacked from behind by Cyrus. The crowd explodes as the ho's pile into the ring with chairs to save the Godfather. The ho's clear the ring of Quality Control, and flash their breasts at the crowd who respond with the biggest pop of the evening.
Cyrus gets on his walkie talkie, and all of a sudden...
the police storm the ring to take the prostitutes into custody.
As the women are being arrested along with the Godfather in the center of the ring...
New Jack's music hits the P.A.
New Jack comes out and brawls with Quality Control, and the Police on the outside of the ring with weapons. New Jack has dispatched Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Cyrus, along with multiple police officers before a dozen Swat team members in full riot gear swarm New Jack, and violently beat him with night sticks.
New Jack is hogtied, and a spitshield shroud placed around his head by Swat as he is violently carried out of the building. The Godfather, and all of his ho's are next in line as the Police take them in. Cyrus, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan stand victorious in the ring, the Crowd thwarts them with violent boos, and pelt them with trash.
Cyrus then tells the crowd:
You just wait until those police are done with all of those Wh%&%s. After they are done booking all of them in, I'll have them come back here, and take all of you in. I bet most of you are felons in possession of drugs anyways. How many of you are on probation, huh?!
The WWF production team, Cyrus, Bull Buchanan, and Stevie Richards are drawing sick heat from the Philly crowd until...
Paul Hayman, Joey Styles, Joel Gertner, and the ECW cameramen, and production crew engage in a massive, sweeping, violent brawl througout the arena.
Cameramen vs Cameramen, Referees vs Referees, as Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner work over Cyrus. Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan begin to ko ECW guys, and eventually get their hands on Paul. Stevie gives Paul a superkick, and then Bull powerbombs him. It looks as if Quality Control are too much for Paul, Joey, Joel, and the ECW production crew to handle before Sabu comes out.
Sabu clears out Bull Buchanan, Stevie Richards, and several WWF crew members with a chair, before he sets up a table in the center of the ring, with Stevie Richards on it. Sabu defies Vince's table ban, and ascends the turnbuckle to do a leg drop onto Stevie Richards through a table. Just before Sabu leaps, Cyrus jumps up onto the apron, and cracks Sabu with a chair. Out of nowhere, Bill Alfonso runs out, and gives Cyrus a low blow from behind.
Paul Hayman gives a recovering Stevie Richards a chair shot to keep him on the table. Alfonso helps Hayman hold Stevie on the table, with Bill holding Stevie's legs, and Paul holding Stevies arms to allow Sabu to leap onto him putting him through the table with a leg drop.
Sabu, Paul Hayman, and a returning Bill Alfonso clear out Quality Control with a chair to save the ECW. Quality Control, and all of the WWF Production crew flee the building as celebration ends the program.
Tune in next week to see what the WWF's Quality Control will do next. Will they really change the rules format here in the ECW? Is this for real? How will New Jack retaliate to his controversial beating at the hands of the Swat team? How will Paul Hayman respond to the new ECW rules, and regulations enforced on him by Vince Mcmahon, and his QUality Control goons?
Is the Sinister Minister's Unholy Alliance losing ground in their battle for souls in the ECW? Will Jerry Lynn, and Balls Mahoney be able to succeed where Tommy Dreamer, and the Sandman failed? Will we ever find out what happened to Tommy Dreamer, and the Sandman?
Can Amish Roadkill get Dawn Marie back from the Insane Clown Posse before its too late?
Paul assures that he is still in controll of the ECW, and guarantees two title matches next week with Rey Mysterio Jr defending his FTW Title against an opponent to be determined, as well as the APA in action again defending the ECW World Tag Team belts, this time against Psicosis, and Super Crazy. All this, and much more, including an extreme lucha match between La Parka, and Yoshihiro Tajiri, and an appearance by the ECW World Champion, Terry Funk next week, on ECW Hardcore TV!

WWF/ECW.com, Home Video Mail Order, and broadcast through syndication on regional television.
Hour long episode(44:00+ commercials) consists of footage shot at a TV taping on May the 26th 2001.
Paul opens up this weeks episode of Hardcore TV again in the center of the ring with a microphone as the crowd chants
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
Paul cuts a promo about tonight's program, and says that the ECW will defy Vince Mcmahon's new set of rules, and regulations imposed on them last week. Paul then goes on to say that the ECW will honor its veteran stars of the old days next week with the inaugural induction of the ECW Hall of Fame. Hayman then unveils the charter class of 2001 for the ECW Hall Of Fame, to be inducted next week in a ceremony on Hardcore TV:
Jimmy Snuka: Former ECW Heavyweight Champion, and household name that helped establish the ECW as the number 3 promotion in the early 90's.
Johnny Hotbody: The only man to win the ECW Triple Crown, winning the ECW Tag belts, TV belt, and ECW World Title as one of the top stars in the ECW in the early days of the company.
The Public Enemy: ECW's main draw at the beginning of the Extreme era. Legitimized the ECW tag team division, and headlined the ECW Arena in the companies first years as Extreme Championship Wrestling.
Paul's next subject is the ECW World Title. Hayman says that Sabu, and New Jack are the top contenders for Terry Funk's belt, and that both men will wrestle tonight in traditional ECW rules to determine the #1 contender. As a gift to the fans that have stuck with the ECW through the hard times, the winner of the match will get a shot at Terry Funks ECW World Title next week on Hardcore TV free to the fans.
Immediately after the announcement of the #1 contenders match between New Jack, and Sabu, Quality Control(Cyrus, Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan) make their way to the ring to confront Paul Hayman.
Cyrus says that if the new ECW rules are not followed there will be serious consequences for tonights performers. Cyrus then cracks jokes about Paul's choice for the charter class for the ECW Hall Of Fame:
You call that a hall of fame?! Wow, I have to say that is pretty pitifull Paul. That is the saddest hall of fame I have ever heard of.
Paul gets visibly angry.
Cyrus says that Paul needs to start watching his step if he wants to keep his job.
I can already see it now Paul, your a slacker. You will lose your job if you do not follow orders from the boss. Sabu, and New Jack are not wrestlers, they are thugs. Sabu is worthless if he doesn't have a chair, or a table to work with. He doesn't wrestle, all he does is a sequence of suicide spots, and weapon usage. UNACCEPTABLE! New Jack is on his way out of this company Paul. Vince has take a special dislike to New Jack. Sabu, and New Jack represent the type of wrestling that Vince has sent me here to rid the ECW of, and your going to honor a bunch of fat, drug addict, worthless pieces of crap like the Public Enemy with an induction into the Hall of Fame?! I don't think so Paul, not on my show.
I have an idea about who should be inducted into the ECW Hall of Fame. What about Jerry Lawler huh? He carried your sorry Hardcore Heaven ppv back in 97, you owe him.
The crowd lets Cyrus have it with violent boos.
Cyrus finishes by telling Paul:
We're not going anywhere Paul. If you don't shape it up, you will be. Your going to be unemployed Paul. You need to watch it with your Sabu vs New Jack match tonight. In fact, just to make sure things don't get out of hand, I will be the special guest referee for Sabu, and New Jacks match tonight, just to ensure that Vince gets the Quality product that I promised him. Have a nice show Paul!
Quality Control retreat to the back, and the show begins.
Yoshihiro Tajiri(with Mikey Whipreck, and the Sinister Minister) vs La Parka
Tajiri destroys La Parka with stiff kicks, a tree of woe, and the tarantula to completely dominate La Parka for the first 6 minutes of the match. La Parka takes the momentum after a lightening quick exchange of high flying luch libre moves. La Parka, and Tajiri exchange a series of about 8 near fall pin attempts in rapid succession, as each reverses the others pin attempt. The crowd gives both wrestlers a cheer after the series, as both wrestlers rise to their feet, and face off in a brief break in the action. La Parka clotheslines Tajiri over the top rope, and follows him to the outside as the two men brawl, and exchange knife edge chest chops around the outside of the ring.
*SMACK!* Whoooo! *SMACK!* Whooo!
La Parka takes out Mikey Whipreck, and Tajiri on the outside with a chair, and then makes his way back inside the ring. La Parka bounces off the ropes, runs, and dives over the top with a corkscrew summersault onto Tajiri, Whipreck, and the Minister. Whipreck, and the Minister are out as La Parka recovers on his knees. Tajiri recovers, and almost kicks La Parka's head into the 5th row. Tajiri hits La Parka with another kick that makes a sickening sound that echoes through the arena.
Tajiri picks the very wobbly La Parka up off of his knees, and onto his feet, and gives him another stiff, loud roundhouse kick to the face, this time sending him over the guardrail, and into the 2nd row. Tajiri adjusts the guardrail, and climbs up onto the ring apron. Tajir springs off of the ropes to do a backflip over the guardrail, and onto La Parka in the crowd at the 12 minute mark.
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
La Parka regains the momentum of the match with some stiff chair shots to Tajiri as the two brawl through the crowd, and eventually make their way back into the ring. La Parka gives Tajiri a sit-down powerbomb off of the top rope, and looks to have the victory sealed until Axle Rotten runs ringside, and spits a fireball into La Parka's face breaking up the sure pinfall. Balls Mahoney, and Spike Dudley run out to help La Parka get the highly important win as they begin to brawl with Whipreck, and Axle Rotten, while Tajiri, and La Parka are both out in the ring due to exhaustion(and the fireball to La Parka's face). La Parka rises to his feet before Tajiri, and the crowd gives him their support by chanting his name.
The crowd pops when La Parka gets his hands on a nearby chair, and begins to do his air guitar dance while Tajiri is rising to he feet on wobbly knees. As La Parka prepares to light Tajiri up with the chair, Rhino storms the ring, and gores La Parka's torso nearly off of his body in one of his stiffest performances of the move ever performed. Rhino then helps the UA brawl on the outside with Balls, and Spike, when Tajiri comes to his sences, and looks to go for the winning pin. Tajiri covers La Parka as the ref starts the count. Just before the ref hits 3, Jerry Lynn comes out, and hits a leg drop onto Tajiri from the top rope to break up the pin.
The wild group brawl between La Parka, Jerry Lynn, Spike Dudley, and Balls Mahoney against Tajiri, Whipreck, and Rhino makes its way into the ring as the bell begins to ring signaling the end of the 15 minute tv timelimit for the match.
Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw run out to help the UA, and the brawl moves back to the outside of the ring, with Super Crazy, and Psicosis coming out, and joining the fight with La Parka, Balls Mahoney, and Spike Dudley against the APA, Rhino, Whipreck, and Tajiri. Meanwhile, back inside the ring, Jerry Lynn clears the Unholy Alliance out of the ring, and finally gets his hands on the Sinister Minister. Lynn sets the Minister up for a powerbomb, but just before he lifts him up...
Vader rips up through the ring canvas from underneath the ring. Vader explodes from underneath the ring, and grabs Jerry Lynn. Vader slowly pulls Lynn down with him underneath the ring while red smoke barrells out of the hole created, and engulfs the entire arena.
After the smoke clears, all of the members of the Unholy Alliance are gone. Super Crazy, La Parka, Psicosis, Balls Mahoney, and Spike Dudley enter the ring, and begin to look for Jerry Lynn in the ring, under the ring, and in the hole, but they find nothing, and look at each other a bit puzzled, and spooked. Just as they back away from the hole that Vader dragged Jerry Lynn into, an explosion of flames burst up through the hole, and towers over the 5 men, scaring the piss out of them, and everyone else in the arena. The wreslters escape to the back out of fear, as the lights go red in the arena.
------------------------------------------------- The program cuts to a pre recorded promo with the FBI
Little Guido, and Sal E. Graziano cut promo recorded in the parking lot of the venue. The Promo begins with Guido, and Sal arriving to the venue in a Limo. Sal is apparently driving. Sal parks the Limo, and Guido exits the vehicle wearing a slick, pinstriped, black suit, remenicsent of something an old mobster of the 30's would wear, with the hat, and all. Guido talks to someone still inside the limo, which is not seen by cameras, apparently more than one person. Guido tells the men in the limo not to worry, that he has everything under control, and that he is about to take care of bussiness in the name of the family. He tells Sal to come on with him into the arena, and tells the unknown men in the limo to make sure they dont screw anything up tonight. The mystery men hand Guido an italian flag on a wooden pole, and a can of green spray paint, as the camera follows he, and Sal into the arena.
Upon making their entrance into the arena, the sharply dressed men walk up behind Chris Chetti, and Nova, who are in street clothes with duffle bags on their shoulders as if they just arrived at the venue. Guido, and Sal quickly run up on Chetti, and Nova from behind, and attack them with the Italian flag. Chetti, and Nova are viciously attacked. Sal puts Nova upside down in a trash can, and then helps Guido tie the Italian flag around Chetti's neck. Chetti's shirt is lifted up, and Guido spray paints his spine with green spray paint. Sal then rolls Chetti over, and stuffs a 100$ bill into his mouth before the 2 men leave him laying.
Guido tells Chetti that he should remember his Italian heritage, and quit running around with goofballs like Nova. Sal reiterates Guido's point by telling Chetti that he needs to listen to the boss, or else he will be sleeping with the fishes. Sal, and Guido leave Chetti beaten, spray painted, strangled with the Italian flag, and gagged with a 100$ bill.
"Dastardly" Danny Doring comes out by himself to begin the next segment with a promo on the state of his tag team partnership with Amish Roadkill.
Doring begins by drawing heat by insulting the crowd. He then begins saying that he has been overlooked in the ECW due to being partered up with Amish Roadkill in a gimmick tag team. He goes on to say that he, and Roadkill had a chance to kill the gimmick by returning the Tag Team Titles around their waists against the APA last week. Doring blames the loss on Roadkill, and his slu* girlfriend, Dawn Marie.
A very sad, dejected, heartbroken Amish Roadkill makes his way to the ring after Doring's disparraging comments.
Roadkill enters the ring and looks sad, and mopey.
Doring asks him:
Look at what this girl has done to you man! You look pathetic! What happened to you Roadkill? We used to be tight, we are the former ECW Tag Team champions!
I...I..I can't find her. They took her, they took Dawn.
Roadkill hangs his head in sorrow.
Doring then tells Roadkill:
She's gone man! Did you not see what they did to the Sandman, and Dreamer? Did you see what they did to Jerry Lynn earlier tonight? You need to let her go man. She's a gonner.
Roadkill gets furios:
NO! Shes NOT GONE YET! I LOVE HER! Won't you help me get her back?
Doring starts laughing, and then tells Roadkill:
If the Unholy Alliance took out the Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, and Jerry Lynn, what do you think they will do to you? Face it Roadkill, you've always been riding my coat tails. Your nothing without me, and besides. Have you seen Vader lately? That guy gives me nightmares. If you want to go after Dawn, your going to have to go at it alone. I want no part in the Unholy Alliance, and neither should you.
What about the good old days Roadkill? Remember all of the good times we had as friends? What about the chickens? Remember Chickens? Me, and yo..uh, I mean you used to tear up so much chicken ass that your d*ck started growing feathers. Remember that? What happened to those good old days? The times we had as ECW Tag Team champions? Everything was going great until Dawn came into the picture.
Doring gets angrier the more he talks.
WE ALMOST HAD THE BELTS AGAIN LAST WEEK MAN! UNTIL YOUR BI*CH COST US THE MATCH!!!
Doring has apparently crossed the line with the insults towards Dawn Marie, and Roadkill snaps, and attacks Danny Doring, ending their tag team parnership, and begining tonights next contest:
Danny Doring vs Amish Roadkill
Roadkills initial flurry comes to an end after Doring gives Roadkill a low blow. Doring then beats on Roadkill, who doesn't fight back, apparently due to his mental state over losing Dawn. Roadkill just absorbs punishment from Danny Doring as Doring screams at Roadkill during the match. "What Happened to YOU!", Doring screams at Roadkill as Roadkill stays slumped over taking kicks from Danny Doring. "Look What She's DONE TO YOU!, You've lost IT!" Doring screams at Roadkill as he performs his finisher, and rolls Roadkill up for the clean pin at 4:23 into the match. Doring tells Roadkill how pathetic he is before he exits the ring victorious, leaving a sulking Roadkill in the ring weaping over the absence of Dawn Marie.
After Danny Doring exits the arena to sweeping boos from the crowd, the Insane Clown Posse(Violent J, and Shaggy 2 Dope) come out to the entrance ramp, and begin to talk to Roadkill, who springs to life at their site, and the prospect that Dawn may be near. Shaggy 2 Dope gets on the mic, and says that the Sinister Minster has Dawn Marie in the back, and offer Roadkill a spot in the Unholy Alliance in order to be with Dawn again.
Shaggy says that the Minster can do great things for Roadkill if he accepts him into his life. Roadkill looks as if he will accept the offer until Shaggy goes into details about how Roadkill will have to drop his Amish way of life, and quit F*cking Chickens. The look on Roadkills face slowly turns into one of defiance the more Shaggy insults the Amish lifestyle. Shaggy crosses the line when he closes by saying that Roadkill needs to say goodbye to his freak Amish family in Pennsylvania, and come say hello to his new family. As Shaggy closes his final sentence, Vader, Rhino, Axle Rotten, Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Yoshihiro Tajiri, Mikey Whipreck, and the Sinister Minister(forcibly dragging Dawn Marie along by the hair) pile out of the back, and slowly join the ICP on the entrance ramp. Roadkill steps out of the ring, and walks onto the ramp.
Roadkill stares down the entire Unholy Alliance by himself, Lets out a battlecry, and charges after all 9 men by himself, unarmed.
Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw get taken out first with a double clothesline, before Tajiri steps up and delivers a super kick to Roadkills face. Roadkill no sells the kick, and floors Tajiri with hard punches to the face. Roadkill sends an advancing Axle Rotten into the guardrail before Mikey Whipreck jumps on Roadkills back, and puts him in a sleeper hold, but Roadkill keeps on fighting, slugging it out with The ICP. Roadkill grabs Shaggy, and Violent J by the head, and slams their heads into each other with Mikey Whipreck still swinging around, and flailing on Roadkills back, trying to put the angry man down with a sleeper.
Rhino gores Roadkill off of the entrance ramp with Mikey Whipreck still on his back. The 3 men plummett off of the ramp through a table 8 feet below, and onto the concrete floor.
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
Roadkill no sells the fall, and rises up over the hurt Rhino, and Whipreck like a Pheonix screaming at the top of his lungs. Finally the other members of the Unholy Alliance are able to team up on Roadkill, and beat him down before he can make his way back up the ramp after the Minister(with Dawn). All 8 men(Vader remains on the ramp with the Minster watching everything unfold) are piled on top of Roadkill beating on him until he rises up in another explosion of anger. Roadkill can not be stopped! Roadkill takes out the Unholy Alliance by himself in berzerk mode. Roadkill makes his way back up the ramp, and after Dawn Marie, but is met by Vader.
Vader hits Roadkill with a few stiff punches that Roadkill continues to no sell. Finally Vader overpowers Roadkill, and proves to be too strong for the angry amish man, driven by his love for Dawn Marie. Dawn reaches for Roadkill while the Minister laughs, and holds Dawn back by the hair. Vader takes Roadkill back to the ring, where all 9 members of the Unholy Alliance begin to beat on him. The Minister forces Dawn Marie to the ring to watch The Insane Clown Posse set up a flaming table. Dawn cries out for them to stop, and to leave him alone, but they continue to beat him down.
Roadkill looks to be done for as the ICP douse the table with lighter fluid, but before they can get the table lit...
The crowd explodes as Super Crazy, Spike Dudley, Balls Mahoney, La Parka, and Psicosis come out to save Amish Roadkill. Wild brawl ensues, and somehow the Minister loses control of Dawn Marie, who jumps on Vaders back while preparing to power bomb Roadkill through the table. Crazy, Spike, Balls, La Parka, and Psicosis brawl to the outside of the ring with the APA, Axle, ICP, Whipreck, and Tajiri, leaving Vader, and the Minister in the ring alone with Dawn, and Roadkill, who is out of the picture from the beatings.
Vader throws Roadkill to the side after Dawn jumps on his back. The Minister grabs Dawn by the hair, and pulls her off of Vader. The Minister then instructs Vader to powerbomb Dawn through the table, instead of Roadkill.
Vader puts Dawn into the PowerBomb position, as the Minister lights the table on FIRE!!!
Vader lifts Dawn up on his Shoulders, and holds her there for a brief moment as Roadkill screams NOOOOOOOO!!!, and reaches to stop Vader, but he is too weak to do anything.
Just as Vader starts to slam Dawn Marie through the flaming table, Jerry Lynn comes up through the bottom of the ring where he was pulled down earlier in the evening. Lynn gives Vader a low blow, causing him to drop Dawn away from the flaming table(the flames quickly die down).
Jerry Lynn pulls Vader underneath the ring scratching, and clawing as White smoke barrells out from the hole, and engulfs the entire arena. Spike, Balls, Crazy, La Parka, and Psicosis clear the arena of the Unholy Alliance with the absence of Vader, and Dawn Marie reunites with Amish Roadkill in a dramatic embrace. Roadkill thanks the Luchadores, Balls, and Spike for helping him get Dawn back, and the segment ends with all of them still looking, and whondering what happened to Jerry Lynn(and now Vader).
Before the contest, Joey Styles praises Kash's two match of the year candidates against Juventud Guerrerro from earlier this year, and reminds the audience about their two recent time limit draw matches that were instant classics. Styles goes on to state the importance of this match, as both of these wrestlers, along with Juventud Guerrerro are bright young stars, and highly ranked competitors for Rey Mysterio's FTW title, and maybe one day soon, even the ECW World Championship.
Kash, and Guido wrestle a clean match, with Kash putting on an aerial display, while Guido outgrapples him on the mat, and nearly gets a few pinfalls. Kid Kash seemingly puts Guido away after performing his finisher, but Big Sal E. Graziano worked his way up on the apron to distract the referee. With the referree distracted...
Vito Lagrasso(Big Vito, Skull Von Krush), and Johnny the Bull make their FBI debut to take out Kid Kash while the referee is distracted.
Both men are dressed in classic mobster suits, and their attack on Kash(with brass knuckles, and a flapjack) allows Guido to get the pin at 7:00. Guido, Sal the driver, Vito Lagrasso, and Johnny the Bull unite in the ring with their newly relaunched FBI. A group of classic Italian mobsters with Guido as the head of the family. Guido tells the crowd that the family is back together. He says that the Italians in the ECW have united, and that
If you want a war, you got a war!
before concluding that Chris Chetti is next.
The 4 men attack Kid Kash after the match, and prepare to gag him with a $100 bill before, a wild, furious Juventud Guerrerro runs out, and makes the save. Guido tells Juvy that he just made a huge mistake as the new FBI exits the arena. Kid Kash recovers, and offers a handshake with Juvy as thanks, but Juvy denies, and exits the arena without saying anything.
ECW World Tag Team Championship Match
The APA(Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw with the Sinister Minster, and the ICP)(Champions) vs Super Crazy, and Psicosis
Styles comments on the APA's dominant reign as ECW Tag Team Champions over the past 4 months.
Will their reign end tonight against Super Crazy, and Psicosis?
Before the match, The Minister cuts a brief promo saying that if Jerry Lynn wants to play games with the Alliance that someone is going to get seriously hurt.
I don't know what you are doing, or who you are talking to, or what you are doing with Vader, but its getting me very, very ANGRY!
The Minster snaps with rage, and screams in a horrifying voice:
No more games tonight, SOMEBODY IS GOING TO BURN!!!.
The APA are furious about the events that took place earlier in the evening, and Super Crazy, and Psicosis are a little spooked by the Minister's pre match speach. The APA squash Super Crazy, and Psicosis in 3 minutes. The APA no sell all of Crazy, and Psicosis' attacks, and Bradshaw was able to get the pin on Psicosis for the win, and yet another title defense for the APA.
After the match, the ICP set up 2 flaming tables. The Minister angriliy sets both tables on fire at the same time while posing in between them in the center of the ring. Crazy, and Psicosis are simultaneously powerbombed through flaming tables as Shaggy 2 Dope, and Violent J hop around the ring laughing, while the Minister poses in the middle of the carnage, and a very evil look on his face.
------------------------------------------------------- After the wreckage of the previous contest is cleared, Cyrus, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan(Quality Control) make their way to the ring. Cyrus has a microphone, and voice's his disgust over the preceeding segment of the show on his way to the ring. Cryus summons Paul after Quality Control make their way to the ring.
Cyrus tells Paul:
Its all over Paul, you're through. I'm the new boss here. You had your chance to turn this company around, now its time for us to take the ECW in a new direction. Without you!. I have just been informed by Vince Mcmahon after that last sick display of whatever it is that you call that, that I am now the head of the ECW rules comittee, and guess what my friend. This wild garbage that you call a wrestling show is finished. NO MORE TABLES! NO MORE FOUL LANGUAGE! NO MORE WEAPONS! NO MORE NUDITY!
Paul gets up into Cyrus' face, and starts to challenge him to a fight, but building security enter the ring, and apprehend Paul Hayman. Hayman is strongarmed by WWF event security staff, as Cyrus instructs him to sit, and watch how a wrestling match is supposed to be officiated.
Cyrus then says that the WWF rules are now the standard rules for the ECW, and that everything is about to change. Cyrus removes his jacket to reveal a referee shirt, and the #1 contenders match is about to begin. Hayman sits ringside with Styles, and Gertner for the contest.
#1 Contenders Match for ECW World Title Shot next week on Hardcore TV(Cyrus as special guest referree)
Sabu(with Bill Alfonso) vs New Jack
Sabu makes his way to the ring first, and awaits New Jack's entrance. New Jack makes his way to the ring with his trademark trashcan full of weapons, but is met by Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan before he can get into the ring. Bull, and Stevie tell him that he can't use the weapons, but New Jack gets in their faces, puts his middle finger up, and says F*ck You!
Bull, and Stevie attack New Jack outside the ring, but Jack hits them with the staplegun to even things up. After using the staplegun on Stevie, and Bull, building security comes out, and takes all of New Jacks weapons away. New Jack fights with security, Bull, and Stevie while Sabu sets up a chair in the ring. Sabu runs off of the ropes, springs from the chair to the ropes, spins around while balancing on the ropes, and then does a backflip onto New Jack, Bull, Stevie, and a few security guards on the floor.
New Jack, and Sabu get into the ring, and wrestle a clean match for 2 minutes after Cyrus throws the chair out of the ring. Sabu spends the 2 minutes working New Jack over with his springboard aerial legdrop arsenal, until New Jack clotheslines Sabu over the top rope, following him down to the concrete floor. Cyrus begins to count WWF style as both men brawl on the outside of the ring
Sabu whips New Jack over the guardrail, and into the crowd before sliding back in the ring to break the count. Sabu runs, bounces off the ropes, springs up onto the top rope, balances himself for a second, and then does a front flip over the guardrail onto New Jack in the third row of the audience.
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
Cyrus resumes to count
Sabu, and New Jack recover, and continue to brawl through the crowd
The crowd boos harder than ever as Cyrus counts both men out, and declares the match a double disqualification after 5:19
After hearing the announcement, Sabu, and New Jack stop fighting each other, and storm the ring after Cyrus. Both men are met by Stevie, and Bull who get beaten on by Sabu, and New Jack. Security joins the fight, but still can't take out Sabu, and New Jack even though they outnumber them 3 to 1. The Swat team comes out in full riot gear, and takes both men into forcible custody. Sabu, and NEw Jack are hogtied with zipties, and a spitguard shroud is place around their head before they are carried out.
Paul enters the ring, and begins to speak. Paul jokes with Cyrus that each time he bails New Jack, and Sabu out of jail, its on Vince's dime. Paul then says to Cyrus that we will have a match again next week between Sabu, and New Jack to determine the #1 contender to wrestle for the title on Hardcore TV against the Champ, Terry Funk. Paul tells Cyrus that he screwed the fans tonight, by denying them a clear cut winner. He then shoots on how the ECW doesn't work like the WWF.
We don't treat our fans like they are ignorant, we give them the respect that they earned when they put down their hard earned money to see this show! I will bail New Jack, and Sabu out of jail again with Vince's money, and WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER MATCH NEXT WEEK! Just to make sure you don't f*ck our fans over again, it will be a cage match to prevent interference from you, and your bulls*it, SELL OUT, LACKEYS!
Things get tense, but the entire segment is interrupted when Shane Douglas' music hits the P.A. The Triple Threat, Shane Douglas(with Francine), Chris Candido(with Tammy L. "Sunny" Sytch), and Dean Malenko make their way to the ring.
Cut the Music!
Shane says that he should get the next title shot, and that he will be the one that finishes off Terry Funk's pathetic career, and be the successor to the ECW throne. Paul says Shane will have to wait, Sabu, and New Jack earned it at Hardcore Heave, meanwhile Shane was wrestling inferior competition in Justin Credible. Cyrus says that Triple Threat have class, and that Shane will be in next weeks match to ensure quality. Shane is pleased with the announcement, as Cyrus continues:
These are the kinds of wrestlers that need to be at the front of this company Paul, wrestlers with class, for god sakes you got one of the greatest mat technicians in the history of the sport here in the ring right now. Why is this man not wearing one of your belts?
Paul looks a Dean Malenko, and makes a face as if he agrees with Cyrus for once.
Cyrus then informs everyone that he was talking about Chris Candido, For god sakes just look at this fine athlete. The crowd boos as Candido flexes his muscles in poses for the crowd, with Malenko, Sunny, Douglas, and Cyrus applauding him on.
Cyrus then adds:
In fact, not only will Douglas be in next weeks triple threat cage match for the #1 contender spot to Funks belt, but Chris Candido will get his rematch for the FTW belt tonight against Rey Mysterio Jr. Come on out Rey.
ECW FTW champion Rey Mysterio Jr makes his entrance, and gets the loudest pop of the evening.
Rey stands in the ring as if he is ready to take everyone on at once, he's ready for anything.
Paul says to Cyrus:
Hold on Cyrus, I don't think you got my memo about the FTW Title. You see, it's not my title to decide what to do with, it's not Vince's title, it's not Your title. Niether of us have any control over Rey's FTW Belt. That belt was dedicated to our fans, and since you f*cked them over tonight with the Sabu vs New Jack match, we're going to let them decide who Mysterio wrestles tonight for his belt.
Paul asks the fans who they would like to see wrestle Rey for the belt later tonight in the main event.
Do you want to see Chris Candido wrestle for the belt?
What about "THE SHOOTER" DEAN MALENKO!
The crowd doesn't even let Paul finish, and he has to scream Malenko's name to be heard over the crowd, who are going crazy at the prospect of an inpromtu title match between Malenko, and Mysterio Jr.
Paul finishes by exclaiming:
THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN!
The Triple Threat are each pissed, Malenko, and Candido argue at Paul, as Shane screams into the microphone:
That's bulls*it Hayman! You're always f*cking us over like this!
The Triple Threat begin to argue amongst themselves about how to handle the situation.
Cyrus responds to Hayman by threatening his job, which enfuriates an already over excited Paul Hayman. Hayman grabs Cyrus by the cheeks, and gets up into his face telling him something that can't be heard, or made out. Bull Buchanan, and Stevie Richards jump Paul from behind, and begin giving him a beating.
Shane ponders helping Paul, but opts to leave with the Triple Threat. The fans pelt the Triple Threat with trash as they exit the arena, as Quality Control continues to beat on Paul Hayman.
The crowd pops huge again as the Godfather, and a dozen skanky ho's storm the ring. The Godfather clears Cyrus, and Stevie Richards from the ring, and has begun an inpromtu match with Bull Buchanan. The ref signals for the bell, and the match is on
The Godfather(with the Ho's) vs Bull Buchanan(with Stevie Richards, and Cyrus)
The Godfather pins Bull in a 3 minute squash match to please the fans. The Godfather, Paul Hayman, and his chair wielding ho's clear the arena of Quality Control, and begin a raunchy, crowd pleasing celebration in the ring.
Main Event for ECW FTW Championship Title.
Rey Mysterio Jr(Champion) vs
Dean Malenko(with the Triple Threat, Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, Francine, and Tammy L. Sytch)
Rey Mysterio, and Malenko wrestle a clean, technical match within the ring for the entire 9 minutes. The crowd stays loud througout the contest, and responds well to seeing the two men back in the ring together, and they manage to put on the best match of the evening. Mysterio gets the clean pin at the 9 minute mark of a back, and forth battle.
After the match, Dean Malenko appears to offer a respectful handshake after the clean pin. Malenko's handshake was only a distraction, as Chris Candido, and Shane Douglas attack Rey from behind. The Triple Threat jump Rey Mysterio Jr, with Chris Candido taking his FTW belt, putting it around his waist, and running around the ring in celebration as if he had just won it.
Terry Funk, and Bam Bam Bigelow run out to help Rey Jr. Bam Bam attacks Candido, and takes the belt back before running him, and Sunny out of the ring. Funk runs Malenko, and Douglas out of the ring with a chair, and Bam Bam gets his hands on Francine, who is left behind by Shane Douglas. Bam Bam puts Francine into the powerbomb position, and lifts up her skirt.
Terry Funk gets a microphone, and says that the Triple Threat have no respect, and that he is about to make true of his promise to start busting ass in the ECW.
Terry Funk goes outside the ring, and gets a belt from around the waist of one of the fans. Funk returns to the ring, and proceeds to give Francine a spanking while Bam Bam holds her. The crowd eats it up. Bam Bam lets Francine go after her spanking, and she retreats up the ramp towards the watching Triple Threat members in embarrasment, and pissed at Shane who did nothing to help.
Bam Bam takes a look at the FTW Title with aspirations before he hands a recovered Rey Mysterio Jr his belt back. The two men shake hands, and Rey thanks him, and Funk for their help.
Funk closes the show by saying that he will continue to bust ass in the ECW with good old fashioned ass whoopin's, until all of these smart ass youngsters learn some respect.

Reason: Order TODAY!
WWF/ECW.com, Home Video Mail Order, and broadcast through syndication on regional television.
Hour long episode(44:00+ commercials) consists of footage shot at a TV taping on June, the 2nd 2001
Before the show starts Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan are shown outside the arena in the parking lot with all of the tables from inside the arena piled up for a bonfire.
Stevie Richards tells Bull that the boss has put him in charge of the strict table ban in the ECW, and that they need to make sure they have them all. Bull ensures Stevie that all of the tables throughout the building have been removed.
Stevie, and Bull then set the bon fire of tables ablaze. The flames consume all of the tables in the ECW Arena, except for Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner's ringside broadcasting booth.
This weeks episode begins with Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner sitting at their ringside broadcasting booth opening the show.
Joey Styles gives us a brief rundown of tonights stacked show, and reminds us of our main event as promised last week:
Triple Threat steel Cage Match For A Title Shot Next Week
Sabu vs New Jack vs Shane Douglas
Joey then passes the spotlight to Paul Hayman in the center of the ring. Paul is in the ring with Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Johnny Hotbody, and the Public Enemy(Rocco Rock, and Johny Grunge). Each of the former ECW superstars are dressed in sharp suits, and there are 4 custom made, ECW Hall of Fame plaques in the ring to commemorate the former hardcore pioneers inductions. The plaques have a 3d bronze sculpture of the performers face in their prime, with a ring of barbed wire around it.
Paul Hayman then proceeds to tell the fans about the ECW Hall of Fame. He says that tonight's charter enshrinees were pivitol in the rise of the ECW, and that each year will see a new class of inductees. Paul then says that there is a special spot waiting for Terry Funk, and Sabu in the hall as soon as they retire from the sport.
Without further ado, ladies, and gentleman I introduce to you the charter class of the ECW Hall Of Fame:
Jimmy Snuka: The first ever ECW World Heavyweight Champion back when the ECW was still affiliated with the NWA. Snuka would later go on to win the World title a second time, and also an ECW World Television Championship.
Johnny Hotbody: One of the top performers of the early days of Eastern Championship Wrestling, and a triple crown winner. Hotbody won the NWA/ECW World Heavyweight Championship, the ECW World Television Championship, and the Tag Team Titles on 3 seperate occasions.
The Public Enemy(Johnny Grunge, Rocco Rock): 4 time ECW World Tag Team Champions, and the performers that helped Eastern Championship Wrestling transition into Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1994/1995.
Paul thanks each, and every performer before presenting them with their Hall Of Fame plaques. Just before he closes the segment, Paul is interupted when...
Steve Corino(with Jack Victory), AJ Styles, and CW Anderson come out, and make their way to the ring.
Steve Corino gets the microphone, and begins insulting Jimmy Snuka, Johnny Hotbody, and the Public Enemy.
Paul cuts Steve off, and tells him
You do know Steve, that if not for these men, that you would probobly not even be here working tonight.
Corino responds by telling Paul:
Each, and every one of these sorry, washed up pieces of garbage have had their time in the sun. Now its time for a new generation to take over. I'm among the generation that has carried this company through its darkest of times Paul, and for what? So I can come out here, and continue to watch these old, decrepid, decaying pieces of shit has beens get trophys, and tv time while I get to sit back, and watch? I don't think so Paul. It's my time. AJ Styles. CW Anderson. It's our time now Paul. You need to accept that.
Corino then goes on to threaten, and disrespect Terry Funk, and Sabu. Calling for them to step away from the ECW to make room for the new generation.
Snuka, PE, and Johnny Hotbody are visibly tense about Corino's choice of words. All of them look as if they are ready for a showdown.
Before Paul can respond to Corino, Cyrus of Quality Control comes out to join the party. Cyrus makes his way to the ring solo to huge boos.
Cyrus begins by praising Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson. Cyrus tells Paul that the three wrestlers are exactly the kind of talent that Vince has instructed him to push in the new ECW. Cyrus then diverts his attention to the ECW Hall of Famers. Cyrus tells Paul that
Vince has informed me that the WWF does not recognize any of the NWA Eastern Championship Wrestling history, or titles. Therefore, none of these sorry saps are eligible for the ECW Hall of Fame.
Paul then tells Cyrus, and Steve Corino that Jimmy Snuka, Public Enemy, and Johnny Hotbody helped to build the house that is the ECW, and that even in their old age, they would probobly mop up the floor with Corino, Styles, and CW. Jimmy Snuka gets the microphone from Paul, and issues a challenge to begin our show with an 8 man tag match. Paul, and Cyrus exit the ring to join Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner at the broadcasting booth, and our next contest is on:
Steve Corino, AJ Styles, CW Anderson, and Jack Victory
Jimmy Snuka, Johnny Hotbody, and the Public Enemy(Rocco Rock, and Johnny Grunge)
Jimmy Snuka, and Steve Corino begin the matchup in the ring in this traditional tag rules match. Snuka takes liberties with Corino's face with some stiff punches. Corino falls to his knees, as Snuka busts his forehead open with more punches, and then headbutts to the downed Corino. Snuka tags out to Johnny Hotbody who whips Corino into the corner, nails him with a clothesline, and then just rips Corino's chest apart with sick knife edge chops. The smacks echo the building, as the crowd responds to each chop with a resounding Whoooo!.
Corino reverses Hotbody, and delivers chops of his own to begin to turn the tide of the match. Steve Corino displays his mat skills with several submission attempts on Johnny Hotbody. Steve Corino tags CW Anderson, who proceeds to bully Hotbody with power moves, and slams. Jack Victory distracts the ref as Anderson, and Corino double team Hotbody in the corner.
CW tags out to AJ Styles, who then takes over in completely wearing Johnny Hotbody down, and preventing him from tagging out to the super hyped up Public Enemy who continue to build the crowd up for the tag. Victory distracts the ref again, but this time Public Enemy throw the rules out the window, and charge into the ring to make it a brawl. The 8 men brawl in the ring. Public Enemy take Corino, and CW outside where they get their hands on some chairs handed to them from the crowd. Johnny Hotbody works AJ Styles over in the corner, while Jimmy Snuka has Jack Victory laid out in the center of the ring.
Jimmy Snuka ascends the turnbuckles, and the ECW crowd goes wild when he does his pose on the top rope just before hitting his trademark splash.
Cyrus leaves the booth, and shakes the ropes to cause Snuka to lose his balance, and fall, racking himself. Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan run down, and begin double teaming the Public Enemy. AJ Styles re enters the ring, and takes out Johnny Hotbody with a chair shot. Styles covers Hotbody for the pin, and the victory at 6:58.
Paul Hayman grabs a chair, and lays Cyrus out, as the crowd goes ape shit!
Just after Paul levels Cyrus with his chair, CW Anderson nails him with a stiff clothesline taking him out of the picture. After Cyrus recovers, he instructs arena security to escort Paul from the building for laying his hands on a WWF employee.
As Paul is dragged out, Steve Corino, CW Anderson, AJ Styles, Jack Victory, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan beat up Johnny Hotbody, the Public Enemy, and Jimmy Snuka, and destroy each of their Hall Of Fame plaques.
Sabu, 2 Cold Scorpio, and Terry Funk break up the beatdown when they storm the ring with chairs.
Terry Funk gets the mic, and shoots about how he will teach Steve Corino some respect, even if he has to whoop his ass with a belt like a little 5 year old in Wal Mart. Funk shoots about how the entire industry lacks respect for the men that paved the way for what Wrestling is today.
Vito Lagrasso(with Little Guido, Sal the Driver, and Johnny the Bull) vs Nova(with Chris Chetti).
The FBI come to the ring dressed to kill in some sharp, classic looking suits strait from the film "The Godfather".
Nova looks better than ever in the first 5 minutes of the contest, but interferance from the FBI gets Vito the win at the 6 minute mark.
The FBI offers Chris Chetti a job one final time, but once again Chetti turns them down. The FBI attack Chetti, and Nova after the match. Both men are beaten with the Italian Flag, and gagged with 100$ bills before the FBI make their exit.
After the match, Quality Control return to the ring. Cyrus says that since Paul is gone for the evening, and that he will be in charge of the show, and that word has come from the head office in Connecticut that there has been a change to the main event.
After a recent phone call from the boss, Vince Mcmahon, has informed me that Shane Douglas has been pulled out of tonight's three way dance cage match due to his old age. Stevie Richards will be placed in the match. Vince, and I agree that Stevie Richards is a bright young star, and he will get the push from the company as the World Champion. Stevie has the looks, and the skills to get the job done, and we have been impressed with how he has handled himself with dignity, and class here in the ECW. Stevie Richards stock is rising here in the ECW. Stevie will get the shot tonight.
Shane Douglas' music cuts Cyrus off, as the Triple Threat(Douglas, with Chris Candido, Dean Malenko, Sunny, and Francine) make their way to the ring.
Cut the F*CKING music!
Shane is visibly furious as the Triple Threat stare down Quality Control from across the ring in a very tense moment.
Shane asks Cyrus:
What changed since last week? Last week you were sucking my d*ck, saying of how much you approve of the Triple Threat. What changed from last week when you put me in tonight's main event against New Jack, and Sabu? Do you really believe Stevie Richards has a chance at beating Sabu, and New Jack? I don't think so Cyrus. I can gaurantee a victory over both of those classless thugs. I can guarantee a victory over that old F*ck Terry Funk. I'M THE FUCKING FRANCHISE OF THE ECW!
Cyrus tells Shane that it wasn't his decision to change the main event.
Shane, I don't have any problems with you my friend. I don't have any problems with the Triple Threat.
It wasn't my decision to take you out of the main event. Apparently, Shane, you have a very big mouth that has been running like a faucet for the last few years here in the ECW.
You see Shane, that big mouth of yours has made you some very bitter enemies back home in Connecticut at the WWF head office.
Vince Mcmahon has given me very direct, specific, threatening orders to pull you from tonights main event.
Shane turns red in anger, and begins to scream into the microphone at Cyrus, as Chris Candido, and Dean Malenko, Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan each back up their man in anticipation of a brawl.
Shane screams at Cyrus:
Fuck that! This is Bullshit! Paul has Fucked me over from day 1, I'm not going to let Vince deny me here in the FUCKING HOUSE THAT I BUILT! I will be the ECW World Heavyweight Champion again, and if you, or Vince Mcmahon get in my way, it is going to be the end of all of this bullshit Quality Control gimmick, and I will bury this entire Fucking industry!
If Vince wants shit with me, he needs to face me like a man, not send a clown like you.
Vince Mcmahon suddenly appears on the mini jumbotron, Shane Douglas is shocked as he stares at Vince with his Jaw nearly on the floor. The Crowd cheer, and boos at the same time as Shane looks at Vince.
Vince confronts Shane live via sattelite on the mini jumbotron, and begins to tell him:
Shane, shane. It's been a long time hasn't it Shane? You know Shane, looking back now, I kind of regret not giving you a bigger push in the WWF as Dean Douglas, but lets face it. You just could not get over with our fans. We gave you the spotlight against our top guys. Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, and you still just couldn't get a reaction from the fans. I'm sorry things didn't work out, but you had a good run in the ECW didn't you? I know you probobly didn't make much money, but lets face it Shane. You fit in with all of the thugs, and garbage wrestling here in the ECW. You're just another run of the mill, ECW Character with the foul language to carry you on the microphone, and poor wrestling ability in the ring.
You had your time Shane. You had a lot of potential when you were younger, but at your old age, I just don't think you are the kind of World Champion we are looking for. I have decided to pull you out of tonights main event, and place Stevie Richards in the match to determine who will get the title shot against Terry Funk next week. Stevie did some excellent work for me here in the WWF, and I think he should get the push as the face of the ECW.
Shane calms down dispite Vince's disparaging words. Shane takes Vince's words with a grain of salt, grins, and responds to Vince:
Vince. Its funny you bring up ancient history, lets go back to 1995, and remember the good old days in the WWF. Your shows were shit. You know it, the fans know it. Thats why Bischoff, and Hogan almost put you out of bussiness. You were too busy handing the WWF over on a golden platter to Scot Hall, Kevin Nash, and Shawn Michaels to notice that Bishoff was creeping up on your ass on Monday Night. The WCW gave ECW superstars a real chance to be seen in the spotlight. Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrerro, Rey Mysterio Jr, and even our man here, "The Shooter" Dean Malenko. Meanwhile, you were too busy Sucking Shawn Michaels Dick to notice that you had some of the best talent to ever come out of the ECW in Shane Douglas, and this man, Chris Candido. You let the clique run the WWF, you ran Bam Bam Bigelow out of the WWF at a time when you needed a big man, and gave the push to a garbage wrestler like Mabel. You almost ruined our carreers with some of the dumbest fucking gimmicks in the history of wrestling, Dean Douglas, and SKip?!? What about Dean Malenko, the motherfucking shooter? Where was his push Vince? What were you thinking? How did it work out for you Vince? Hall, and Nash stabbed you in the back, and almost put you out of bussiness.
The only reason you are here Vince, is because of the ECW, the fucking company that I built with the sweat of my brow. You took our "Attitude", and put it on Monday Night Raw, and it saved your fucking ass. I will be ECW World Champion again, and not you, or your bitch's here in Quality Control, and not even your new bitch Paul Hayman will stop me.
Vince concludes the segment telling Shane to enjoy tonight's main event, and to have a nice carreer.
Joey Styles announces the new main event set in Paul Haymans abscense:
New Jack vs Sabu vs Stevie Richards in a three way dance steel cage match for a title shot at Terry Funks World Title next week on Hardcore TV!
Amish Roadkill, and Dawn Marie are shown in a pre recorded promo.
The lovestruck couple are shown riding through the Pennsylvania Amish countryside together on a buggy being pulled by 2 horses.
A montage is shown of Roadkill showing Dawn Marie the Amish ways in his village. How to churn butter, milk cows, etc.
At the end of the promo, Dawn asks Amish Roadkill about his history with making love to chickens, Roadkill assures her that his Chicken plucking days are over, and that he is only in love with her.
Roadkill gets down on one knee, and asks Dawn Marie to marry him. She says:
YES! Lets do it in the ECW next week baby!
Roadkill, and Dawn Marrie are very happy together. A match made in heaven. The two agree to get married next week on ECW Hardcore TV in a traditional Amish wedding, with Dawn's family, and Roadkills Amish family in the ceremony!
Guido(with Vito, Sal the Driver, and Johnny the Bull) vs Juventud Guerrerro
Juventud comes out with a Mexican flag
Juventud Guerrerro, and Guido put on a stiff as hell match, with vicious knife edge chops bringing out the Whooo's! from the crowd. Juventud does a corkscrew backflip off of the top rope onto the FBI below on the outside of the ring, and then smashes Guido's face with a botched 450 splash from the top for the win at 8:49.
The FBI beats down Juvy after the match. Guido snaps the Mexican flag pole, and throws the flag outside the ring. The FBI prepare to gag Juvy with a 100$ bill, and drape the Italian flag over his unconsious body when Kid Kash storms the ring like a maniac.
Kash springs off the top rope, and nails the FBI. The FBI clear the ring. Kash offers a handshake to Juvy, who is reluctant to accept, just like last week.
After thinking about it for a brief moment, Juvy shakes Kash's hand, and the crowd showers them with approval. Kash gets the mike, and challenges the FBI in a tag match against him, and Juvy next week on Hardcore TV!
The program cuts to Danny Doring primping himself in the mirror, fixing his hair, and talking to himself. Doring tells himself, that he doesn't need Roadkill, and that he is a stud.
Cyrus walks up on Doring, and tells him that he is a stud, and that QUality Control, and the Boss in conecticut have had their eyes on him for quite some time. Cyrus offers Doring a job in Quality Control. Doring accepts the job.
Cyrus gives him the appropriate, matching attire. Black slacks, dress shoes, a tie, and button up white office shirt. Cyrus gives Doring a ticketbook, and says that Doring now has the authority to issue fines to ECW performers for exessive nudity, foul language, and violence.
Whoah! Authority?!? I like the sound of that!
Danny Doring tells Cyrus
Cyrus tells Doring that if he does a good job, he will get a real job in the WWF before he knows it.
Danny Doring puts on some huge Texas sherriff sunglasses, and looks into the mirror as Cyrus leaves.
Doring tells himself in the mirror as the promo ends.
Axle Rotten, and Rhino(with the Sinister Minister) vs Balls Mahoney, and Spike Dudley
Before the match, the Minister says that he grows tired of Jerry Lynn's games, and that Lynn's soul will soon be his.
Jerry Lynn, you have proven to be a tougher soul to capture than the Sandman, and Tommy Dreamer. You have a very strong will, and a bright soul, but just wait until I get my hands on it!
I will make you suffer pain the likes of which you have never imagined possible.
Balls, and Axle brawl through the crowd exchanging chair shots that open both of them up with cuts on the forehead. Rhino destroys Spike Dudley in the ring, and throws Spike around with ease. Rhino picks Spike up to throw him out of the ring, and into the crowd, but Spike manages to escape Rhino's grip, and fall out of position. Spike gives Rhino a low blow, and then an Acid Drop.
Spike goes to cover Rhino, but the Sinister Minister interferes. Spike hits the Minister with an Acid Drop, and the crowd eats it up. Spike covers Rhino for the win at 5:33. Rhino quickly recovers, and attacks a celebrating Spike Dudley, as Balls, and Axle finally make their way back to the ring area. Rhino carries an unconcious Spike Dudley on his shoulder to the back. The Sinister Minister, and Rhino carry Spike Dudley with them to the back in a hurry as if they are up to something.
They look to be headed to the boiler room, but they are met in the back by Super Crazy, La Parka, and Psicosis who begin brawling with Rhino. All of the Unholy Alliance except for Vader all of a sudden run into the fight. Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, the ICP, Tajiri, and Whipreck beat up Super Crazy, La Parka, and Psicosis, and Spike until Jerry Lynn joins in on the sweeping backstage battle. Axle Rotten, and Balls Mahoney are both bloodied, and alone in the ring together exhausted from their brawl. Axle has a chair in his hand, and he grabs a microphone.
Axle begins to speak to Balls Mahoney as the camera switches back, and forth from the backstage brawl, and to the ring with Balls, and Axle confronting each other, both bloodied.
Axle hands Balls the chair, and tells him that he should reunite with him in the Unholy Alliance. Balls gives Axle the finger, and says "Fuck You" before he cracks Axle with the chair. Axle falls down, but starts to laugh as he rises back to his feet.
The camera switches to Jerry Lynn, Spike Dudley, Super Crazy, La Parka, and Psicosis brawling with Rhino, Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Yoshihiro Tajiri, and Mikey Whipreck in the backstage. The men are brawling when all of a sudden Vader smashes through a nearby wooden door, tearing it to peices. Vader helps the UA take the momentum of the backstage brawl as he targets Jerry Lynn.
The fight begins to make its way outside the building into the parking lot area, while the Minister returns to the ringside area to help Axle Rotten.
Meanwhile, back in the ring. Axle tells Balls that the Minister will help them be relevant in the ECW again.
Join us, and we will be tag team champions. It's a perfect fit Balls, Me, and You man. Lets do it. Just accept the Minister in your life, and we will dominate the ECW tag team division man. He's already promised me. He wants you man, just join us.
Balls rejects Axle's offer, and cracks him in the head again with the chair. Axle no sells the shot, and another, and laughs at Balls. The Sinister Minister attacks Balls from behind, and Axle takes the chair back. Axle, and the Sinister Minister attack Balls Mahoney with vicious chair shots to his already bloodied head. The minister says that Balls will continue to develop a relationship with pain as long as he resists joining the Unholy Alliance.
Back out in the parking lot, the Unholy Alliance has destroyed La Parka, Super Crazy, Psicosis, Spike Dudley, and Jerry Lynn. Rhino throws Spike Dudley into a dumpster. Vader takes his brawl with Jerry Lynn up onto the hood of a car. Vader powerbombs Jerry Lynn through the windshield. Psicosis, and La Parka are soaked in lighter fluid, and set on fire.
ECW World Champion Terry Funk comes to the ring next to cut a promo. Funk says that he will teach the young generation of the ECW respect before he retires. He then goes on to say that Shane Douglas takes too much credit for the rise of the ECW, and that he is not the Franchise of the ECW. Funk says that Douglas forgets the importance of the fans in the rise of the ECW. Funk says that the fans are the true Franchise of the ECW. Terry Funk promises that Douglas won't have to worry about Mcmahon, or Quality Control, because he will personaly see to it that he will never be ECW World Champion again.
Shane Douglas comes out without the Triple Threat, only with Francine by his side. Douglas stands face to face with Terry Funk, and asks him with respect for a one on one match for the title after he is done with whoever wins tonight's main event. Douglas asks for a respectful one on one match for the belt at the upcoming ECW Supercard Hostile City Showdown in 2 weeks.
Funk likes the way Douglas asks for the shot, and so does the crowd. Funk accepts Douglas' challenge, and says that if he is still champion he will give Douglas a Title shot in 2 weeks. Funk adds a stipulation that this is to be Shane Douglas' final title shot while he is champion. Douglas agrees, and requests another stipulation. Douglas asks Funk to put his career on the line.
If you lose the belt to me, you walk away old man.
Terry Funk agrees to the match.

Sabu comes out with Bill Alfonso, and Stevie starts the match with a chair. The cage door is locked by Cyrus after all 3 men are in the ring.
Stevie opens up with chair shots on New Jack, and Sabu. There are not any referees in the cage, and the top is open in a "Hell In A Cell" style cage. The match will be won with traditional "first man out" cage match rules.

WWF/ECW.com, Home Video Mail Order, and broadcast through syndication on regional television.
Hour long episode(44:00+ commercials) consists of footage shot at a TV taping on June, the 9th 2001
The show opens up with a pre recorded video from earlier today. Stevie Richards, and Bull Buchanan have once again rounded up all of the tables from within the arena, and piled them up for a bon fire. This time though, they have even confiscated Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner's ringside Broadcasting booth.
Stevie tells Bull that Vince will be very pleased with their work, and they will make sure no tables are to be used on ECW television. As they watch the fire burn, a strange vehicle pulls into the parking lot of the arena.
Amish Roadkill's family pulls up to the arena with style.
Roadkill's mom, and 4 sisters exit their vehicle in the parking lot, and make their way into the arena in preparation for their baby Roadkills wedding with Dawn Marie tonight on ECW Hardcore TV!
Joey Styles, and Joel Gertner open the show in the arena by welcoming the television viewers. They are seated ringside, but their broadcasting booth is gone. Their monitors, and equipment is sitting on milk crates due to Stevie Richards strict enforcement of the table ban.
Ladies, and gentleman, we have a special match made in heaven here to open up this weeks episode of Hardcore TV. Dawn Marie, arguably the hottest woman in the history of the ECW is about to marry Amish Roadkill.
Yes, you heard me correct. Amish Roadkill has won the heart of Dawn Marie, and the two of them are a match made in Amish heaven. Lets take it to the ring for this special ECW moment!
Styles then shoots it to the ring where Amish Roadkill, and Dawn Marie are in front of their Amish minister, preparing to take their vows. The ring is decked out with flowers, and ribbons, as well as a wedding cake.
All of Amish Roadkill's family is in the ring with them. His grandpa Jebediah, and his uncles Hezekiah, and Ezekial.
His Sister Esther, with her Husband Malakai, and their two children Sarah, and Susan.
His brother Peter.
and his two nephews, Luke, and David.
Dawn, and Roadkill are together as their minister begins the ceremonies.
You may kiss the bride
Dawn, and Roadkill embrace in a loving kiss
Smiling faces throughout the arena. Roadkill, and Dawn Marie are very, very happy together, and Roadkill's family is in utter joy that their beloved Roadkill has finally found his bride.
The ECW Arena, and ring is filled with nothing but love, until all of a sudden...
The lights in the arena turn red all of a sudden. The Sinister Minister then leads his Unholy Alliance to the ring. Ron Simmons, Bradshaw, Vader, Rhino, Axle Rotten, Mikey Whipreck, Yoshihiro Tajiri, Shaggy 2 Dope, and Violent J all slowly make their way out of the back dressing room, and head their way down the entrance ramp. Roadkill awaits them in the ring with fury in his eyes.
The Alliance circle the outside of the ring, as Roadkills family begins to collectively tremble in fear. The Minister then begins to speak to Roadkill.
Roadkill, Roadkill. This is such a special occassion, and yet you didn't even invite us. We feel a little left out. You know Roadkill, I'm looking at your family, and I see that you come from an interesting background. You see Roadkill, you intrigue me. I think you have a lot of potential. I think you can be a very important asset in my quest here in the ECW. Join us Roadkill, and we will be your new family. Join us, and you will prosper riches, glory, power, and pleasures that your primitive relatives could never imagine. Join us, and you, and your new bride's dreams will all come true.
Roadkill's grandma gets the microphone, and denounces the Unholy Alliance, and orders the Minister to take his wickedness back to where they came from if they knew what was good for them.
Roadkill gives the Minister the finger, and tells them to leave him, and his family alone
The Minister gives his minions the nod, and they all enter the ring, and begin to wreak havoc on Roadkill, and Dawn's wedding. The ICP immediately go after Dawn Marie, and begin tormenting her. Pulling her hair, ripping away at her clothes, and manhandling her around the ring. Rhino brawls with Roadkill as the Alliance begins to destroy Roadkills entire family around the outside of the ring. Roadkill's family is completely decimated in a truly chaotic scene. Tajiri, and Whipreck are going after the women, and children as they run around screaming, and flailing their arms around. The APA powerbomb Roadkill's Uncles to the concrete floor. Axle Rotten takes his barbed wire baseball bat to Roadkill's Grandpa, opening up a cut on his forehead as he cries out for his grandson to help him. Vader picks up the steps to the ring, and drops them across the back of Roadkill's brother in law.
The ICP hold a battered Roadkill that has been destroyed by Rhino. They hold him by the arms as he is on his knees in tears. Violent J grabs him by the cheeks, and forces him to watch as Rhino gores his beutiful new bride down to the mat.
What started out as a joyfull, loving ceremony looked like it was struck by a tornado after the Unholy Alliance destroys everything, and everyone involved. Before making their exit, the Insane Clown Posse take Roadkill, and Dawn's wedding bands, and put them on their fingers as thier own.
The next segment begins with Danny Doring decked out in his new Quality Control clothes. Black slacks, a nice office dress shirt, clip on tie, and some slick black dress shoes. Doring is standing in front of his mirror primping himself. Doring puts on his new Texas Sherriff sunglasses, and tells himself in the mirror:
I am the law. Say hello to the new authority here in the ECW. Yeah baby!
Just as Doring is prepping himself, Sabu, and Bill Alfonso walk by behind him as they appear to have just arrived at the arena. Alfonso can be heard telling Sabu that they don't need any tables. Alfonso also tells Sabu that he needs to keep his cool, and stay away from Quality Control.
Danny Doring turns around to see Sabu shirtless. Doring looks upon Sabu's scarred up body, and then stops them in the hallway. Doring approaches Sabu, and tells him:
Hey! This..This isn't something I think the boss would consider appropriate for television Sabu. I think you need to cover up these hideous scars. I mean, that is just disgusting. How did you get all of those? A car accident?
I think you need to wear a t shirt from now on when you are going to be on ECW television. This is just innapropriate.
Sabu gives Doring the mean eye as Doring whips out his WWF Citation book to issue Sabu a fine for innapropriate attire. Doring informs Sabu, and Bill Alfonso that the citation will be a direct deduction from their paychecks.
Alfonso stops Sabu from jumping on Doring, and then tells Doring:
Hey listen here daddy, this is the most homicidal, genecidal, suicidal maniac man, if you can't handle that, I suggest you get with Paul E., and ask about who helped put the Extreme in the ECW baby. If you take any money out of our paychecks, there is going to be some serious problems here baby.
Drool, and slobber slop out of Alfonso's mouth as he gets overexcited while talking to Doring
Doring slaps his pink WWF citation ticket on Alfonso's chest, and tells them to put a shirt on before he ventures off into the arena to continue to be a pest for tonight's program.
The program cuts back to the arena after the ring crew clean up the mess from earlier in the evening. Joey Styles gives us a brief introduction for our opening contest. Styles says that Psicosis, Spike Dudley, and La Parka are on the rise in the ECW, and that the next three way dance matchup between the three of them will have an impact on the rankings for a number one contender to Rey Mysterio Jr.'s FTW Championship Title. Styles also reminds us of the Unholy Alliance's failed attempts to recruit each of the wrestlers, which has attributed to their popularity among the fans.
Three Way Dance
Spike Dudley vs La Parka vs Psicosis
The match begins with each competitor in the ring. The 3 men circle each other before Spike Dudley, and La Parka finally lock up. Psicosis nails them with a springboard dropkick while they are locked up. The 3 each exchange power moves on each other in sequence. La Parka hits Spike with a pile driver, Psicosis then nails La Parka with a sit down running power bomb. Spike recovers, and nails Psicosis with a running Spicolli driver before being german suplexed by La Parka.
Yoshihiro Tajiri, and Mikey Whipreck of the Unholy Alliance come out, and begin to circle the ring, applauding La Parka's efforts as he dominates both Psicosis, and Spike Dudley.
La Parka suddenly gets very cautious when he notices Tajiri, and Whipreck. Tajiri gets up on the apron to offer La Parka a chair to use in the match, but La Parka nails him in the face with a super kick to the chair, knocking him down into the guardrial. Whipreck runs over to check on Tajiri, and help him back to his feet, when La Parka runs, springs off of the ropes on the opposite side of the ring, and sprints accross the ring, leaps through the air in a spinning corkscrew front flip over the top rope down onto Whipreck, and Tajiri.
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
La Parka gets up, and grabs his chair. The crowd goes wild as he does his air chair guitar dance, preparing to blast the wobbly Tajiri, and Whipreck as they rise to their feet. Before La Parka can blast them with his chair, the APA run out together. Ron Simmons, and Bradshaw take it to La Parka with chair shots. Spike Dudley, and Psicosis get up on the top turnbuckles of the ring on opposite ends. Both leap down onto Whipreck, Tajiri, Bradshaw, and Ron Simmons. Spike does a cross body leap, and Psicosis does a summersualt.
Bradshaw, Ron Simmons, Whipreck, and Tajiri brawl with Spike, La Parka, and Psicosis in the ring, until La Parka finally gets his chair, and cleans out the 4 men, sending them retreating out of the ring. Vader then makes his way down the isle towards the ring with the Sinister Minister at his side.
Vader takes his time getting into the ring, as Psicosis, Spike, and La Parka(with his chair) stand united awaiting the monster together.
Vader makes his way into the ring, and our impromptu match is on
Vader vs Psicosis, Spike Dudley, and La Parka
La Parka blasts Vader with his chair after the bell rings. Spike, and Psicosis watch as Vader no sells the stiff shots. Vader just flexes his muscles, and screams at La Parka before unloading a series of stiff hook punches to his face, and body. La Parka drops to the mat like a ton of bricks. Spike, and Psicosis then team up on Vader attacking him with dropkicks, and attacks to his legs, but Vader just laughs them off, and continues to no sell. Vader double chokeslams Spike, and Psicosis. He then picks Spike up in the guerrilla press position. Vader runs across the ring while holding Spike up, and throws Spike into the 7th row of the crowd. The fans pick Spike up, and surf him around the arena.
E! C! W! E! C! W! E! C! W!
Vader then powerbombs La Parka with furious power, bouncing his head off of the mat. The crowd loves it, as they chant:
One More Time! One More Time! One More Time!
Vader then powerbombs Psicosis, and bounces his entire body off of the mat a full 2 feet up into the air. Vader covers Psicosis with his foot, and the ref counts to 3, declaring Vader the victor.
Vader then pulls La Parka over Psicosis, and the Minister soaks them in gasoline as the rest of the Unholy Alliance join Vader in the ring, preparing to set them on fire.
Just before they can set them on fire, Jerry Lynn, Super Crazy, and Balls Mahoney come running out to make the save, and brawl with the entire Unholy Alliance. Spike manages to help them get Psicosis, and La Parka out of the ring to save them from burning, and they collectively retreat away to the back from the Unholy Alliance who stand tall in the ring.
The Sinister Minister then begins to issue challenges for next weeks ECW Hostile City Showdown 2K1. The Minister says that it will indeed be a Hostile night for the Unholy Alliance. He then challenges Balls Mahoney to battle his Axle Rotten in a barbed wire baseball bat match, where he guarantees that Balls will bleed his soul out all over the ring. The Minister then challenges Amish Roadkill, and says that if he wants his precious wedding bands back from the ICP, that he will have to go through Rhino at Hostile City Showdown. The Minister promises to have Roadkills soul, and to convert him from his amish ways.
The show then cuts backstage where the Godfather is collecting his money from his ho's.
The ho's hand over their cash as the Godfather tells them how proud of them he is. He also tells them that they can cut loose now because they are in the ECW. The Godfather asks if Joel Gertner has been properly paying up for their services, and they assure him that Joel is one of the highest paying customers in the ECW.
As the Godfather collects his bread, Danny Doring comes rushing around the corner with the Philadelphia police department. Doring has the Godfather's ho's arrested for prostitution.
Doring tells the Godfather that there will be no more illegal activities going on in the ECW while he has authority granted to him by the WWF. The Godfather is boiling over with rage, and frustration. The Godfather threatens to kick Doring's ass, and Doring then issues him a citation for foul language(Ass). Doring laughs it up as the Godfather's ho's are taken into police custody.
Steve Corino's Old School Posse comes out to the ring to begin our next segment.
Steve Corino shoots about how he is going to retire all of the washed up bums that are ruling the main card in the ECW, and hanging around like a bad odor that just will not leave. Steve says that everyone should say goodbye to Terry Funk, because Shane Douglas will retire him this weekend at Hostile City Showdown. Corino calls out 2 Cold Scorpio, Bam Bam Bigelow, Terry Funk, Sabu, and then goes on to say the he is the future ECW World Champion, and the future face of the company.

once, and for all before moving on to the next old decrepid piece of trash.
New Jack is shown next cutting a promo backstage. New Jack airs his dislike for authority, and police, and says that
The motherf*ckers that cost me my title, and sent me to jail are going to die!

Danny Doring interupts New Jack with several building security guards in WWF shirts accompanying him.
Doring issues New Jack a citation for foul language, and informs him that money will be taken from his paycheck by the WWf. New Jack attempts to attack Danny Doring, but is escorted from the building by security.

Just as he comes down with the first strike, Douglas saves her with a chair shot to Funk's head. The Triple Threat flee as Bam Bam, Mysterio, and Funk stand together in the ring. Funk recovers, and thanks Mysterio, and Bam Bam before grabbing a microphone, and saying that Douglas' final title shot will be this weekend because he is going whip his ass, and then give the women of the Triple Threat the spanking that they have coming to them for the disrespect they have shown the sport.

Really enjoying this, Shinobi. The pictures are bit excessive, but I'm probably alone in that mindset. I think in a lot of ways you've captured the Heyman-mindset. Like on the last show how Bigelow/Candido segues through a chaotic set of circumstances right into the main event. That's how it used to happen in ECW. If anything, my complaint would be that there's not as much WWE-influence as there should be. I also thought about something. Can you imagine watching TV on the Internet in 2001? Something to ponder. I can't imagine it would have worked as well for people then. Excited to read HCS2k1!
You aren't alone. I'm going to be cutting back on the pic's for sure. I don't want to use too many Youtube vids either, only when necessary. I really appreciate your feedback TMMW. I'm hoping to keep improving. I just jumped into this at first, then I read a few other fan fic threads(including your WCW thread), and was blown away at what was possible with it. I am going to concentrate on some good fueds, and try to write up some great matches.
I'm not really trying to go for any kind of WWE/F influence quite yet. I do plan to in the future, but not for some time. My problem is that I'm pretty old school. I'm going for more of an old school ECW feel, but with the WWE budget. Let me tell you right now though, I'm not going to be real strict with the reality of things. Like a mini jumbotron in the ECW Arena for instance? Come on. I don't think so, but it is fun to play around with since it is Fiction after all. I'm definitely going to stretch a few things, but I'm not going to over do anything, I promise. For example, the thread is in June of 2001 at the moment, with Dean Malenko as an active performer. If I remember correctly Malenko was retired at that point, or soon after.
I have been ispired by TNEW, The Cuban Wrestling Crisis, and the WCW fan fic threads to start getting into some of the newer wrestling. As I get more familiar with the newer performers, I will gradually work them into the thread. At the moment though, I just have not seen enough pro wrestling after 2000/2001. I am going through, and watching it though, so the more I see, the more I'll incorporate into this fed.
I hope with this thread it will work both ways. Hopefully I will inspire some of you guys to go back, and watch some of that classic underrated ECW stuff that nobody has seen, the same way you have inspired me to get into modern wrestling.
Absolutely keep the feedback coming guys. I'm open to any criticism because it is the only way to improve really. One of my main goals with this thread is to improve as a writer in general. I've had a lot of oppurtunities open up for me in journalism recently, and I want to continue to advance in that area. Without a college education I know there is only so far I can go. One of the only ways for me to really improve is for someone to drop in, and say "Hey, your doing this wrong.", or "Do it like this."
So don't hold back. I'm a big boy, I can take it, and It will make me better.

Interview with Vince Mcmahon from the Wall Street Journal. June 2001 issue.
WSJ: Vince, your purchase of the ECW has been scrutinized recently due to the poor financial shape of the company at the time. How has the decision worked out for the WWF's bottom line up to this point.
Vince: It has been very tough. I'm not going to lie, or sugarcoat things, the ECW was almost to the point of no return when we bought them. To this day, I still have not made a single penny of profit from the company, but we have made huge strides in attracting new fans, as well as keeping the diehards that the company was, and is known for attracting.
The surprisingly high attendance for live events, with the higher than expected PPV revenues from the 2 show's we have done has been what has kept the ECW afloat so far, but as far as turning a profit, we still may be a long ways away from the company making any significant money. The amount of debt that the company was in will take a bit more time to work down. We have stacked the ECW roster with some excellent performers that come with a hefty pricetag, but their presence in the company has boosted interest enough to bring fans out to the live shows, and get them to buy PPV's, home videos, and merchandise. We have worked down the companies debt to a respectfull figure, and we have managed to pay our performers what was earned to them from the original owners of the company, but no, as of yet we have not made a single penny from the ECW. We have a strong team of management, and some of the WWF's best accountants keeping the ECW running, and we plan to keep trucking with it until we finally get into the black.
So far the fans, and the interest is there, but the money is just not. I am very happy with the response that the ECW has gotten from their fans, and I think the company is very close to breaking through, and becoming profitable.
WSJ: The last ECW PPV "Hardcore Heaven" stirred a bunch of controversy, and brought a bunch of negative attention to the brand from people who thought the Violence, and nudity was just too much. In recent weeks, More critisizm has poored in about the overall nature of the ECW brand, and the WWF's decision to be associated with such a product. How much control, and influence does the WWF have over what we see on ECW programming?
Vince: Look, with the ECW, we aren't trying to draw in teenaged fans, or sponsers like Stridex, and M&M's, we want to appeal to a completely different demographic than what the WWF does normally. We are trying to reach out to the 18-35 demographic with the ECW. My accountants, and my money are about the only influence the WWF is going to have on the ECW, other than that, I have given complete creative control to Paul Hayman. Hayman is the ECW. For me to take the creative control away from him would be to strip the heart out of the ECW, and that is something that the fans of the company would not go for. ECW fans are not the same as the average WWF fan. There are a lot of things you just can not get over them. The ECW will be run as its own entity. It is my company, but in order for it to work the way we want it to, We(the WWF) are going to have to just step back, and let Paul do his thing.
WSJ: What strides have been made to get the ECW back on cable television?
Vince: We have been scouring networks for a deal. We thought we were close to getting them back on TNN, but the deal fell through. We were in negotiations with several other companies, including the Fox family of networks. We were close to inking a deal with them for the ECW to air on either FX, or The Fox Sports network, but ulitmately we did not like the restrictions the network was wanting to inforce on the brand. We want to keep the ECW an R rated wrestling company, and we have not found a channell yet that is willing to take that risk. We will continue to search for a cable deal for the ECW, but it has to be on our terms. Getting a cable deal for the ECW only to have to water them down to a PG rating would be taking a huge step backward for the company, and would alienate a majority of the fans that have kept the company afloat thus far.
WSJ: What about the WWF's new website? Fans have complained about the ECW programming available on the website that the technology is just not there yet for the internet to be a viable medium to view ECW programming. What is the WWF doing to make the ECW available to its fans until they return to cable?
Vince: We have been working very hard to improve our online experience for the ECW. Improvements have been made, but the quality is just not there. We do not, and will not charge anything for the ECW's Hardcore TV episodes that are available to view on our website. The WWF has just inked a long term deal with former distributer of ECW home videos, RF Video. RF Video has been liscensed by the WWF to exclusively distribute all ECW Home Video's, as well as their classic events. We will invest into RF Video to get the ECW Hardcore TV episodes into the homes of wrestling fans all across America. Until we can get Hardcore TV back on cable, fans can sign up for RF Video's mail order program, which will keep each weeks episode rolling into your mailbox on a weekly basis for one flat monthly rate. Very similar to a magazine subscription. Even after we ink a cable deal, RF video will be retained as the ECW's exclusive distributor of Home Video programming.
WSJ: You made some pretty bold statements about the UFC back in February. Their PPV's have not done as well as their new owners have expected. Do you feel like the new UFC still has as much potential to one day rival the WWF in PPV revenues?
Vince: Absolutely. That sport has an appeal to young men like none other. To be honest I have a few deep regrets about not purchasing the UFC myself when they were up for sale in the end of last year. I really think that with proper management, the UFC will be huge in the US eventually. I'm not sure if Zuffa has the entertainment experience to get it up off of the ground, but they definitely have the money, and the bussiness savy to make it happen. Whether or not they do is to be seen, but the sport has potential that can not be denied. I deeply regret not purchasing the UFC myself from SEG. After what we went throught with the XFL this year, and the money we lost, I definitely look back with regrets, and wish that I would have done things differently. I think we could have done something special with the UFC given our track record in the PPV market, and our experience with live entertainment. It was an oppurtunity that we missed out on though, and I wish Zuffa the best of luck, but I think we have something special in the ECW, and I hope to be able to keep some of those 18-35 year olds from jumping ship from Pro Wrestling to UFC when/if the sport finally does take off on a national level. It is going to be something that is hard to compete with for us in the WWF, but I think we can with the ECW if done the proper way.
