2000 - With much fanfare, Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo return to WCW, presumably to take control of the company and help bring it back to prominence. They make their return on a live edition of Nitro from Denver Colorado. Here is a recap of their big angle:

With wrestlers in the ring, Jeff Jarrett talked about how Vince Russo was responsible for turning the WWF around. He said that the "Old Boys Network" couldn't handle Russo's plans to bring success to WCW. Russo came out and said he had come to WCW just to beat Vince McMahon at his own game, but said that there were people in WCW that were afraid of change. Russo blamed the "Old Boys Network" for the departure of Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero and Perry Saturn. Eric Bischoff then joined him, and also complained about the established stars, saying he was wrong when he tried to keep them at the top of the cards. They essentially cut a promo to set up a "New Blood" vs. established stars feud. Russo and Bischoff then had all the titles vacated (Jarrett's U.S. belt, Brian Knobbs Hardcore belt, The Harris Brothers tag belts, and Sid's World Title) and announced tournaments for the belts, as a way of "starting fresh".

The show also saw the surprise debut of ECW World Champion Mike Awesome, who attacked Kevin Nash. Here is the fascinating story behind that jump:

Sometime at the beginning of the month, either WCW sent feelers to ECW World Champion Mike Awesome, or Awesome got word to them that he was interested in coming there. It had been suggested that the connection was Awesome's cousin, Horace Hogan, who was with WCW. Awesome apparently made it clear to WCW that he was not under ECW contract, and plans were put into motion. This was all to remain secret until the big Nitro on 4/10, where Awesome would appear. However, on 4/6, it was mentioned on the "Bubba The Love Sponge" radio show in Florida that Awesome was about to sign a deal with WCW. While Bubba was hardly a reliable source, this statement seemed so unusual that people started digging for facts. This is where things started getting crazy.

Mike Awesome missed the ECW shows that weekend, due to what was believed to be transportation problems. By Saturday morning, word was spreading about Awesome showing up on Nitro, with rumors flying that he was going to throw the ECW World title belt in a trash can, ala Madusa with the WWF Woman's title several years earlier. Whether or not that would have happened will never be known, because ECW found out about the plan, and went on the defensive.

Paul Heyman, at the ECW show in Buffalo Saturday night, informed his locker room of Awesome's planned jump. He also produced a signed three year contract that Awesome had with ECW. Awesome has stated in several interviews that he had a three year contract (including one that I had conducted with him) and this led to speculation that he was going to claim some type of breach in order to open negotiations with WCW.

At the Buffalo show, Heyman made sure the rest of his house was in order, with several wrestlers signing new contracts or extensions.

Sunday before Nitro was a day of heavy speculation, as rumors flew left and right, and ECW's legal team prepared to take on WCW. All the way up until Monday night, fax machines worked overtime, with copies of Awesome's contract being sent to every member of WCW's staff, including Brad Siegel. Rumor has it a copy was even faxed to the attention of Ted Turner at CNN Center. Two hours before Nitro went on, Eric Bischoff said in an AOL chat that Mike Awesome had a contract with WCW. Awesome did arrive in Denver for Nitro, but his appearance was scratched, fearing the validity of the contract with ECW and the threat of legal action. Still, WCW had not given up on Awesome being on the show, and began to negotiate with ECW for Awesome.

Amazingly, an agreement was reached that would allow Awesome to appear. A substantial sum of cash would be given to ECW, and there were conditions placed on Awesome's appearance. Awesome was not to speak on Nitro. He was to be referred to as the ECW World Heavyweight Champion. The ECW title belt, which Awesome was in possession of, would not be seen. Also, his title defense on Thursday night in Indianapolis would be plugged, and he would appear on that show to lose the title.

Well, Awesome did appear, and two conditions were violated, as he did speak, and the Thursday match was not plugged (Scott Hudson began to comment that Awesome had a title defense, but it was not followed up on). This set up some more negotiating, and Awesome did not appear on Thunder the next night, despite being backstage at the show. A new settlement was reached where Awesome would have to drop the title on 4/13 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The match would be filmed, then rushed to Nashville, so it could be voiced over and edited into Friday's TNN show. Of course, ECW had one more big move to make, and that was decide who Awesome would drop the title to.

Their choice? Former ECW World Champion, and at the time new WWF star, Tazz. 

2001 - Jeff Hardy defeats Triple H for the WWF Intercontinental Title in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ending HHH's third run with the title.

2007 - WWE broadcast ECW on SyFy.  Mike Johnson filed the following TV report:

Welcome to's live coverage of ECW on SciFi from Providence, Rhode Island.

ECW opened with Vince McMahon (looking like Freddy Krueger with that fedora) making his way to the ring. Vince addressed the crowd from the center the ring, saying that he experienced the greatest humiliation of his life at Wrestlemania 23 when his head was shaved bald. Crowd popped huge for that. He asked the crowd if they enjoyed it and they went nuts again. He said later that night, he vowed he would regain his dignity and self-respect and exact revenge. He said Steve Austin is too busy with The Condemned and Donald Trump is "back in his ivory tower", so that leaves just Bobby Lashley.

The crowd began chanting "You suck", so in return McMahon announced that Lashley won't be here tonight because he's been barred from the building. McMahon promised he wouldn't have been on ECW anyway because he's suffering from a "severe concussion", showing footage of the attack on Lashley from last night on Monday Night Raw.

McMahon said that Lashley claimed Wrestlemania was the best night of his life. Vince promised that Backlash would be the worst night of Lashley's life and would lose the ECW World championship. He ran down the challengers for the ECW title in the Backlash handicap match. McMahon said he could hear the ring announcer right now announcing, "Your new ECW World Heavyweight champion, Vincent K. McMahon."

Vince said that Lashley knew he was going to make Lashley's life a living hell. Vince promised to do just that, saying every night he would make Lashley's life hell. Vince said that every one of the fans in the building laughed at him when he lost his hair, so he would somehow, someway make their lives a living hell as well. A determined McMahon looked around the ring before thanking the fans and promising to see them at Backlash. Typical good promo by McMahon.

Joey Styles and Tazz promoted the Lashley vs. Vince & Shane McMahon and Umaga ECW title match at Backlash as the camera followed Vince walking to the locker room.

Backstage, Rob Van Dam asked CM Punk how he was feeling. Punk said his ribs feel better. RVD told Punk that he represents the old school style of ECW and showed that at Wrestlemania 23. He was complimenting Punk on his work when Elijah Burke interrupted and told Van Dam that Punk was New Breed material. RVD scoffed at it, but Burke said that Punk would show him next week when he announces that he's joining the New Breed. Punk got annoyed and cut them both off saying that since he's getting it from both sides now, he'll make a decision this week and walked off. Van Dam looked confident and then walked off. Burke smiled at Van Dam but when he left, looked worried.

Fine segment setting up later in the night. Punk's intensity and realism when talking is what sets him apart from a lot of the guys - you can see he invests himself into what he's doing, as opposed to reciting words handed to him. It makes a world of difference.

So far, decent show from a storyline evolution standpoint, but 15 minutes in, no wrestling.

Tommy Dreamer vs. Kevin Thorn (with Ariel)

Tommy Dreamer, limping, made his way to the ring, wearing an ECW Originals shirt. That shirt is easily the worst ECW-related shirt in the entire history of those letters. They showed clips of him taking all the punishment last week in the excellent eight man tag match. Thorn came out holding his neck. I like that the guys are selling their pain from last week, as opposed to TNA where AJ Styles falls off the Elevation X and he's fine on the next episode of Impact. Ariel looked amazing, like always.

Dreamer gets whipped into the corner and shoulderblocked down. Dreamer came back with a neckbreaker, but Thorn retreated. He went to get back in the ring but Dreamer hit him with a sliding kick. Dreamer drilled him into the ringsteps and worked over him outside. Thorn took Dreamer's knees out, and he fell to the floor. Thorn tossed Dreamer into the ring and locked on a chinlock. They showed Punk watching from a monitor in the back. Good way to tease his decision. Thorn nailed spinebuster, but Dreamer kicks up. Dreamer ducks a clothesline and hits a neckbreaker. Dreamer nails several rights. Dreamer charges him in the corner, but is nailed with a kick. Thorn charges Dreamer but is caught with a spinebuster for a near call. Dreamer went to the ropes but Ariel distracted the referee. Thorn crotched Dreamer on the ropes, nailed the Dark Kiss and pinned Dreamer.

Your winner, Kevin Thorn!

Nothing memorable. Really too short to be anything of note and more of a backdrop to tease Punk's decision than a competitive bout.

Backstage, Extreme Expose were preparing and goofing off when Snitsky stalked in. He stared off into space and one by one, Layla, Brooke, and Kelly Kelly snuck off, scared.

They aired a feature on The Condemned.

Tazz and Joey Styles updated everyone on the condition of Hardcore Holly, showing Snitsky "breaking his arm" last week and noting that Holly would require surgery to repair the damage.

CM Punk vs. Stevie Richards

Wow, Stevie on my TV two weeks in a row. They noted Richards asked for another shot at Punk after losing last week. Just as the match was about to start, Matt Striker's music ht and he made his way towards the ring, dressed in a shirt and tie, holding his sternum. As he made his way to the ring, Sandman's theme hit and Hak made his way to ringside. They went to commercial as Joey Styles noted both sides were scouting Punk.

When they returned, Punk was hitting a backbreaker across the knee on Richards. Punk chopped Stevie in the corner, and whipped him out. Richards reversed it, but missed Punk in the corner. Richards went after Punk's ribs, which made sense since Punk "hurt them" at Wrestlemania. More logic in my wrestling; I like that. Richards went for an abdominal stretch, but Punk escaped the attempt and Kicked Richards. They traded strikes. Punk got the better of the exchange, ending it with a backfist and roundhouse kick. Punk hit his running kneelift into the corner, followed by a bulldog for a two count.

Striker and Sandman began arguing outside the ring. Striker shoved Sandman. Sandman went to cane Striker in return but he ducked and the cane caught Punk in the back of his legs as he rebounded off the ropes. Richards rolled up Punk but he escaped and covered Richards for the pin.

Your winner, CM Punk!

Sandman got into the ring after the match and explained to Punk that it was an accident. He told Punk that they've known each other since "Norm Connors in 98." and he wouldn't "steer him wrong." Connors promotes the IWC in Pittsburgh. Joey Styles and Tazz wondered if the errant cane shot would have any bearing on Punk's decision later tonight. Good storyline stuff.

Extreme Expose danced. Well, two of them did. Snitsky made his way to the ring and for some reason, Layla, the most coordinated of all three suddenly turns into the only one unable to figure out how to get out of the ring. She turned into the first girl that always gets killed in a horror movie. It looked really hokey. Snitsky stalked her but Balls Mahoney hit the ring and nailed Snitsky with a chair. No effect. Jason Voorhees sells for nobody, brother.

Joey Styles and Tazz reviewed CM Punk promising his decision later tonight. They aired the RVD, Punk, Burke segment from earlier.

Rob Van Dam vs. Marcus Cor Von

Rob Van Dam made his way to the ring with Sabu, who was wearing a neckbrace. After a commercial break, Cor Von came out with Elijah Burke. Burke and Cor Von together look like a top act. Cor Von muscles RVD into the corner, but gives him a clean break after a shove. Cor Von elbows RVD in the mouth and works over him with punches and clubbing blows.

Van Dam tries to monkeyflip Cor Von out of the corner but is caught for a powerbomb attempt. Van Dam escapes and turns it into a victory roll attempt. Cor Von takes over, hitting several shots to Van Dam's midsection but only gets a one count. Van Dam fights his way off the mat but Cor Von drilled him with a neckbreaker variation for another near fall. Slowly paced so far.

Cor Von continued to work over RVD in the corner. Van Dam takes him down with bodyscissors for a nearfall, Cor Von comes back with a belly-to-back suplex. RVD goes for an enziguiri but Cor Von ducks and nails a release German suplex. Cor Von suplexes RVD over, then cinches a side chinlock, riding Van Dam on the mat.

Van Dam fought his way to his feet. He went to kick Cor Von in the face, but it was blocked and drilling RVD into the corner. He goes right back to the chinlock. Tazz called it a rear naked choke. The crowd is bored to death it seems. Some Van Dam chants finally. RVD makes a comeback with some clotheslines, leg kicks and spinning back kicks. Van Dam hits a springboard into a sidekick.

Van Dam and Cor Von had some weird miscommunication that ended with RVD hitting a corkscrew legdrop. Cor Von backdropped RVD over the ropes but he landed on his feet and hit a Ryder kick off the top rope. Elijah Burke attacked Sabu at ringside and waited for RVD to see him, then drilled Sabu with a DDT on the floor. Van Dam went after Burke but got Pounced by Cor Von and pinned.

Your winner, Marcus Cor Von!

CM Punk's music hit and he ran to ringside, checking on Sabu and Rob Van Dam. He got into the ring and faced off with Marcus Cor Von and Elijah Burke, ready to fight, then slowly dropped his hands and embraced them. Tne New Breed all lifted Punk on their shoulders and carried him around the ring while he celebrated. Joey Styles sold it like he was shocked and wondered what this meant for the Originals in their battle against the New Breed.

The main event, again, not so memorable and more of a backdrop while we waited to see Punk's decision. I am thinking what we saw at the end was just the next part of that story because it seemed rather anticlimactic just to have Punk simply join up, as opposed to pulling some dastardly heel act en route to going heel. We'll have to see where this goes.

The best thing on the entire show was the backstage segment with Punk, Burke, and Rob Van Dam, in my opinion.

2008 - CBS canceled reality series 'Secret Talents of the Stars" before an episode featuring Ric Flair can air.

2008 - WWE Diva Torrie Wilson teased that her in-ring career is likely over in a blog written on her account:

"My health is doing ok as far as back problems. I must say there are  days that I wake up and ask myself why the heck I put my body through what I did the last few years but it's all worth it. I can never trade all of the awesome experiences that I have had in the WWE and of course all of the great lifelong friends that I have made along the way. I have been told by 2 back surgeons that  I should never set foot in a wrestling ring again if I want to be moving around in a few years on my own. Pretty depressing if you ask me....I don't even have  some awesome memory of what my last match even was or who it was with. Hopefully  it was with Victoria and I beat her! (-: I guess everything happens for a reason for sure."

Wilson returned to the ring at Wrestlemania 25 in a Battle Royal but physically, did not do anything that would have hurt her back.

2008 - WWE Smackdown and ECW ran Valencia, Spain.  Juan Ramos filed the following results:

Tonight's ECW/Smackdown show was great!  It was at the Plaza de Toros with a very full house.  Here are the results of what happened.

One of The Edgeheads beat Jamie Noble with help from the other one.

Fit Finlay, with Horny, beat Kenny Dykstra.  The fans loved Finlay and Horny.

John Morrison and The Miz defended their tag championship by beating Jimmy Yang and Shannon Moore.

Matt Hardy, who the crowd loved, beat MVP.  It was a DQ because MVP used a chair.  Matt hit the Twist of Fate after that.

Undertaker, The Big Show and Batista beat Edge, Mark Henry and Great Khali in the main event.  This match wasn't good but the fans liked it anyway.  Undertaker pinned Edge after the Tombstone.

2008 - WWE Raw ran Belfast, Northern Ireland.  Peter O'Rourke filed the following results:

I was at tonight's show at the Odyssey.  It was a fun show.

Mickie James and Maria beat Katie Lea and Beth Phoenix when Mickie pinned Katie.  Val Venis was the ref.

CM Punk beat Carlito with the Go To School.

Snitsky beat The Canadian Bulldog DH Smith.  Snitsky was horrible but he got the win.

Santino Marella cut a promo running down the fans.  William Regal came out and stuck up for us since he is British.  He beat Santino after he kicked him in the head.

Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes actually got a win for once.  Of course, they only beat Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch to keep their belts.

Chris Jericho beat Umaga to keep the Intercontinental Title in a fun match.  Umaga laid out Jericho after it was over.

Kane kept the ECW Title when he beat Chavo Guerrero.  Don't ask me why this match was on the show.  Lilian Garcia told us at the beginning that it would be. 

Triple H beat Randy Orton in the main event when William Regal got schitzophrenia and came in and attacked Hunter as he was making the pin.  Triple H then hit the Pedigree on Regal to end a fun show.

2009 - Ring of Honor taped ROH on HDNet at the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, PA.  Mike Johnson filed the following results:

A table was set up in the ring as The American Wolves, with Shane Hagadorn, made their way to the ring.  Davey Richards said last time they were out here, they took out the golden boys of Kevin Steen and El Generico.  He said that they put Steen and Generico through a table and it's going to happen again.  When it does, The American Wolves will be the new ROH Tag Team champions.  Steen and Generico hit the ring and the Wolves left, abandoning Hagadorn.  Steen said that he thought Wolves ran in packs, but it looks like they only run in pairs.   Hagadorn begged for mercy, but Steen reminded him that he did help the Wolves kick his bad knee in, so they powerbombed him through a table.

Kenny King vs. Kenny Omega vs. Jay Briscoe (with Mark Briscoe)

Briscoe slapped both at the bell, then tossed Omega to the floor.  He whipped King into the ropes. nailed a clothesline and a leg lariat.  Omega returned and avoided several Briscoe moves before diving over the top to the floor on King.  Omega and Briscoe worked over King on the floor until he jumped onto the apron, then hit a forward flip onto them.  King tossed Omega into the ring and began working him over.  The crowd chanted Omega's name and King mocked them.  He choked Omega against the ropes, then locked on a surfboard.  That allowed Briscoe to hit a Mafia kick to the face, then a slam.  Briscoe nailed King with a STO into the turnbuckles.

Omega and Briscoe went back and forth briefly, but Briscoe tossed him out of the ring.  King ducked a Briscoe clothesline and hit a kick to the back of the head for a two count.  Omega broke it up but was taken out.  Briscoe and King went at each other again.  King choked Briscoe with a boot across the throat.  He and Jay exchanged punches in the middle of the ring and Omega hit a flying bodypress off the top onto both.  He nailed a double rana on both.  He preened for the crowd but was caught with a Briscoe lariat.  Jay set up for the Jay-Driller but King springboarded off the ropes into a Buff Blockbuster.  He scored a two count.

With all three men down, the crowd clapped to rally them.  King went to the top but Omega jumped him in the corner.  He set up King for a belly to back suplex but Briscoe got involved. Omega avoided him, then hit a back cracker off the ropes onto King for a two count, which Briscoe broke.  By this point, Omega was busted open in the nose while Jay had a cut above his eye.  He hit a death valley driver on Omega and went to the top but King kicked Briscoe, who fell to the floor.  King picked up Omega in a Toture Rack but Omega rolled through and then caught King in a bridged pin. 

Your winner, Kenny Omega!

Good match with some fun exchanges.  Omega and Briscoe got good reactions on the way out.

The fans chanted for the Fight lub.  Airborne put up a decent fight but Fight Club caught one of them coming off the top rope and nailed him with a double powerbomb.

Your winners, The Dark City Fight Club!

DCFC are starting to get over with the crowd since they are basically wrecking everyone they come into contact with.

Chris Hero (with Sara del Rey) vs. Eddie Kingston

Kingston hit the ring and chased Hero outside and back in again.  He began unloading on Hero, who retreated again to the floor.  Kingston followed and choked Hero outside.   Hero pulled del Rey on front of him, which distracted Kingston enough to allow Hero to dropkick him in the head from the ring,  Hero nailed a back senton splash on the floor.  There was a loudly split crowd for the match.  Hero tossed Kingston back into the ring and kicked him in the face.  He began working over Kingston with chops, but Kingston fired back.  Hero nailed a big boot rebounding off the ropes.  Hero began choking Kingston and continued to beat him with chops.  Kingston begged him to keep coming.

Hero whipped Kingston into the ropes and as he rebounded, drilled him with an elbow.  Kingston nailed a kick to the face, then a suplex.  Kingston unloaded with a series of chops and a back drop driver.  He began beating down on Hero in the corner,  The referee kept trying to get him off but Kingston ignored him.  The referee DQ'd Kingston, so Kingston nailed the referee to a huge pop.

Your winner, by DQ, Chris Hero!

The crowd chanted, "You got f***ed up" as they carried referee Todd Sinclaire out.

Jimmy Jacobs & Brodie Lee vs. Necro Butcher & Delirious

All four brawled outside around the ring at the onset.  When Jacobs and Delirious got into the ring, they rang the bell.  Delirious worked over Jacobs, tossing him into the corner and then hitting a back senton splash.  Lee and Necro traded punches in the middle of the ring.  Necro backdropped Lee to the floor.  Delirious nailed a dive off the top to all three on the floor.  Necro set up two chairs in the ring facing each other and a third laying across them.  He attempted to suplex Jacobs off the top through them but Lee made the save.  He and Jacobs suplexed Necro off the top to the floor.

Your winners, Necro Butcher & Delirious!

Roderick controlled the flow of the match early with armdrags.  Titus tried to throw him out of the ring but Strong caught himself on the apron and nailed a slingshot shoulderblock and then a leg lariat.  Strong continued to work over Titus.  Titus came back slamming him into the buckles and then used a series of punches.  He continued to beat down Strong, who came back with a series of chops.  Titus slammed Strong into the buckles then hit a splash in the corner.

Your winner, SHIMMER champ MsChif!

They did a lot but it didn't seem to click with the crowd.

Kyle Durden came out and said MsChif successfully defended her title (oops!) and asked her what her goals in ROH were.  Jimmy Jacobs said the Age of the Fall don't have goals just accomplishments and MsChif was going to be the arsenal in his army to take out Daizee Haze once and for all.

Your winner, Erick Stevens!

ROH Tag Team champions Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The American Wolves - Tables Match

All four brawled around the ring.  The champions controlled the flow early.  They worked over Davey Richards until Eddien Edwards interfered.  It backfired on Edwards as now he was getting doubleteamed.  Steen went under the ring for a table and the crowd popped.  Generico whipped Richards into a table Steen held standing up at ringside, then repeated the feat with Edwards.  The Tag champs pulled the table into the ring.  They tried to whip Edwards into a table propped in a corner but he stopped himself short.  Steen suplexed him into another corner.  He went to the floor, where Generico laid him out.

Steen tried to toss Richards threw a table but was unable.  The Wolves came back to work over Steen's big knee by dropping him through a table on it.  The crowd got all over the Wolves and chanted for Steen.  Richards teased locking on a figure four but when everyone went "wooo" he gave them the finger instead.  The Wolves stomped the bad knee, then set another table up in a corner.

They beat down Steen in the corner as he continued to try and survive.  Generico returned from the floor, recovered and hit a flying bodypress on both.  Generico hit a nasty looking Michinoku Driver 2 on Edwards.  He then hit a tornado DDT out of the corner on Richards, followed by a moonsault to the floor on Edwards.   Richards tried to hit a rana on Steen, who caught him and powerbombed him through a table.  Steen hit a swanton on Richards followed by a Generico splash but Richards kicked up at two.

Generico and Steen stacked a pair of tables outside on the floor in almost the exact same spot where the late Flyboy Rocco Rock did the first ever double tables spot in August 1994 on Don E. Allen during a ECW TV taping.  The Wolves cut off Steen and worked him over with stereo kicks.    Richards went to the top as the crowd tried to rally Generico,  Richards missed a shooting star press off the top.  Generico slid under the bottom rope and caught Edwards with a spinning DDT on the floor.  He put Edwards on a table, then hit a top rope splash through the table. 

Steen locked Richards in a Sharpshooter but let it go when he saw Shane Hagadorn charging the ring.  He nailed the package piledriver on Hagadorn.  He placed Richards on a table as the Arena chanted, "This is awesome."  He went to the top for a moonsault but Richards was playing opossum and shoved him forward through the two stacked tables.  Generico attacked Richards but Edwards came from behind and got him on his shoulders.  Richards hit a bulldog DDT off the top through a table and scored the pin.

Your winners and new ROH Tag Team champions, The American Wolves!

As the officials helped the former champs out, they received a nice round of applause.  That was one hell of a match!


Claudio Castagnoli & Ernie Osyris (with Prince Nana) vs. Colt Cabana & Brent Albright

Albright and Cabana worked over Osyris early with a double backdrop and several armdrags.  Cabana nailed an atomic drop, then used a unique pinfall combination for a two.  Claudio tagged in but Cabana twisted out of a leglock.  He began using lots of European style pinfall attempts.  Osyris tagged back in and rubbed his armpit in Colt's face.  Nana got on the apron as Colt made a comeback, distracting him long enough for Claudio to drill him with an uppercut.   

Cabana nailed a backdrop and tagged in Albright.  Albright cleaned house and nailed an overhead belly-to-belly suplex.  Claudio finally retreated with a blind tag to Osyris.  Cabana nailed the Flying A*******.   He then cinched in his reverse Boston Crab for the submission win.

Your winners, Colt Cabana & Brent Albright!

Kyle Durden interviewed the winners and asked them how they felt.  Albright smooshed Osyris' dirty sneaker in Durden's face and asked how that felt.

Notes: The next TV tapings will be 5/29 and 5/30 with Ric Flair appearing on the 29th and KENTA appearing both nights....The Arena is now selling a "Property of The Arena" T-shirt for $20....There were a lot of kids at the taping and you can see the company is trying to maximize that by selling action figures.  They should just market Delirious masks as well....They found a nice groove with these tapings as the formula seemed to be a squash, an angle building for the future, a "main event" bout and another solid competitive match underneath.  It worked.  If they can work out the audio issues (low crowd noise, mics picking up referee giving cues) that were in the first batch of episodes, this will be a fun six weeks.  They had a nice mix of wrestling and storyline.
