Rob Van Dam Interview- RVD is back on TV after being out several months and cuts a promo about ECW and that not being able to wrestle this show sucks more than not wrestling at Wrestlemania. Rhyno comes out to nail RVD leading to…
Rhyno vs. Sabu- Sabu looks like he is 50 now but he’s still a nut. The crowd lets Rhyno know that he was fired incase he forgot.
Chris Benoit vs. Eddie Guerrero- Should have been better.
Joel Gertner/Eric Bischoff Interview
Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka- The craziest match of the night where Both men go through many tables.
Paul Heyman Interview- The second shoot of the night (RVD was 1st), Heyman shows his emotion as the crowd chants “Thank You Paul”. Paul E then rips on Edge and JBL while giving the quote of the year “The only reason you were champion for a year, is because Triple H didn’t want to work Tuesdays.”
Dudley Boyz vs. Tommy Dreamer and The Sandman- Sandman makes about a 5 minute entrance while the whole crowd is singing his Metallica entrance song. Great PPV, great night and might be the best PPV in 5 years, outside of Wrestlemanias. The crowd was hot all night and showed that there is still a craving for EC F’n W.
