Eddie Kingston vs. Rhino

Kingston attacked Rhino as he came to the ringside area and they battled on the floor.  Kingston drilled Rhino backwards into the apron.   Kingston suplexed Rhino on the apron.  He sent Rhino into the ringpost.  He went for a suplex on the floor but Rhino reversed it.   Rhino tossed him into the ring and Kingston begged off.  They officially rang the bell.

Kingston tried to nail Rhino who blocked it and nailed a series of rights.  Rhino went for the gore but was kicked in the face.     Kingston covered him for a two count.  Kingston kept working over Rhino, who tried to mount a comeback.  Kingston nailed a snapmare and dropped a kneedrop for a two count.

Rhino nailed a series of rights and a big elbow.  Rhino nailed a shoulderblock in the corner.  Kingston tried to fight back but was nailed with a big piledriver for a two count.   They battled back and forth while on their knees with punches and slaps.  They battled back and forth until Rhino caught him with the Gore for the pin.

Your winner, Rhino!

Easily the best Kingston showing in HOH to date as he actually had a chance to really work and be a heel.  The crowd loved seeing Rhino and popped huge for all his offense.  Solid stuff.

Ben Ortiz & Hale Collins & Vik Dalishus vs. Team Tremendous & Tony Nese

Team Tremendous frisked the referee and found contraband.  They "ejected" the referee and demanded a special guest referee.  Out came Mikey Whipwreck.  That was funny!

Collins and Barry started out.  They went back and forth until Barry nailed a springboard reverse elbow.  Nese and Ortiz tagged.  Ortiz used his size and girth to take Nese out early and aired a nice spinebuster.  Bill Carr tagged in and cleaned house with a double clothesline.  Barry nailed a nice missile dropkick.

Carr, Nese and Barry all had their way with Collins in the corner, drilling him with chops.   Mikey tossed the manager for Ortiz' team.   Team Collins gained control and worked over Barry.  Ortiz tagged in and drilled Barry with an elbow drop for a two count.  They went back and forth.  Carr shocked the Arena whipping out a rana on Ortiz.   They all battled on the floor.  Hale nailed a dive off the top to the floor.  Nese nailed his backwards flip to the floor.  Barry nailed a spinning dive over the ropes to the floor.  Carr nailed a forward senton over the top to the floor, wiping out everyone.  Mikey, having enough, hit a flip dive off the top to the floor.

Nese and Ortiz returned to the ring and did some great back and forth sequences.  Hale hit the scene but Nese lifted him and nailed a one-arm powerbomb in the corner.  At this point, they all went crazy with big spots and the crowd loved it.  Vik tried to use a foreign object but Mikey took it away.  He went to hit Mikey and ate a Whippersnapper for his troubles.

Bill Carr nailed him with a Canadian Destroyer for the pin.

Your winners, Team Tremendous and Tony Nese!

It started a little dicey but once they turned up the juice, the crowd really liked it.  There were a ton of tremendous spots here that really dazzled.

Papadon, Amazing Red and Brian Myers came out.  They announced tonight, they were paying tribute to Mikey and played a nice video showing highlights of his career and the wrestlers he trained.  Whipwreck, who didn't know this was coming, was stunned.  The crowd called for a speech.  Mikey said he doesn't really talk but his first bump was right here in this building.  The crowd chanted "ECW."  Mikey said someone of his size (at the time) didn't deserve a chance in Philadelphia but the fans gave him one.  He said that he worked hard and he appreciated them all.  He thanked everyone from the bottom of his heart.

Matt Hardy vs. Carlito vs. Lance Hoyt

Hoyt attacked Hardy as he came out and took out Carlito as well, controlling the scene early.  The crowd was all over him, chanting, "Tramp stamp."  That made me laugh.   Hoyt brought a ladder into the ring but Hardy and Carlito returned with chairs and nailed the ladder in unison, knocking Hoyt down. 

Carlito slammed Hoyt into the chair.  Carlito set up the ladder and climbed up but there was nothing to grab.  Hoyt chokeslammed him off the ladder.  That was goofy.  Hardy and Hoyt battled.  Hoyt got the better of him and nailed a double arm suplex.  The Arena fans were all over Hoyt's tattoo again.

Hardy set up the ladder against the rope and went for a suplex but Hoyt reversed it and nailed a suplex onto it  Hoyt charged Hardy who ducked and Hoyt ate a chair.   Carlito and Hardy faced off, then agreed to team together.  They suplexed Hoyt into the ladder.  They did it again, breaking the ladder.

Hoyt was drilled with a chair.  Carlito stood over Hoyt but Hardy rolled him up for a two count.  That set off a battle between the two.    The crowd turned on Hardy, chanting, "F*** Matt Hardy."  The ladder was placed across the turnbuckles and Carlito picked up and dropped Hardy on the ladder.

Hoyt took advantage and worked over both.  He went for a moonsault but they each stepped out of the way.  Carlito went to use a chair but Hoyt punched it into him.  Hoyt went to hit a Razor's Edge on the ladder but Hardy kicked him and went for the Twist of Fate.  He was shoved off but Carlito nailed the backcracker on Hoyt.   Hardy caught Carlito with the Twist of Fate for the pin.

Your winner, Matt Hardy!

OK match.  Something wasn't clicking here.
