Trivia

Dawn Marie Psaltis was a few months pregnant in real life at the time of this show. Because of this, her involvement in the Lance Storm-Chris Jericho match was limited to redirecting the referee's attention so he wouldn't see Justin Credible hitting Jericho in the head with a Singapore cane. While ECW generally avoided rules, meaning there were very few ways to get disqualified, and that wasn't one of them, there was nothing else she could have done during the match. See more »

Quotes

Joey Styles: And I love the FBI. Now, Little Guido Maritato, WWE fans know him as Nunzio, is truly Italian. Big Guido is truly Italian. Tony Mamaluke, Tracy Smothers and JT Smith couldn't find Italy on a map. Earlier today JT Smith asked me if an innuendo was an Italian suppository.

The Right Way to give ECW a WWE produced event
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a hell of a lot better than that crap December to Dismember show in December 2006. This is the right way to utilize the ECW talent in one night.

Match 1: Lance Storm vs Chris Jericho - Great opener. Both these guys pull off some impressive high flying action. Jericho was only in ECW for awhile, but since he was contracted WWE talent at the time and originally worked ECW he was put into this show. Storm really did great for his first match in a long time. In the end Justin Credible gives Jericho a Singapore cane shot so Storm can pick up the win. Nice opener.

Match 2: Super Crazy vs Tajiri vs Little Guido - It was nice to see Nunzio using his original ECW name in this match. A truly incredible match. These three since the original ECW have put on classic three way dances. Guido is the first to go and then we are down to Crazy and Tajiri. Crazy hits all three of his moonsaults off the ropes to take the win. He also did an incredible balcony dive earlier in the match. Great candidate for match of the night.

Match 3: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Psychosis - In the good spirit of WWE wrestlers taking their original ECW names we have Rey Mysterio competing as Rey Mysterio Jr. once again. These two tore the roof off the place. ECW didn't take time to slow down the event, instead they put on this classic contest between two fantastic luchadors. Rey in the end takes the win, but he earned it after some of the maneuvers he pulled off in this one.

Match 4: Sabu vs Rhino - I know WWE pronounces it as Rhyno, but I will refer to him by his truly spelled named, Rhino. This was the first hardcore extreme match of the evening. Rhino attacks the injured Rob Van Dam during a shoot promo, Sabu then defends his former friend and takes Rhino on in the ring. In the end Sabu his the Arabian Skull Crusher off the top rope through the table, getting him the well needed win over ECW's last World Champion Rhino.

Match 5: Chris Benoit vs Eddie Guerrero - As if the matches couldn't get any better we now have Benoit vs Guerrero once again. It would have been cool if Dean Malenko would have come out of retirement for this event or even participated as a special guest referee, but still this match was great either way. Guerrero and Benoit both shine like they used to in the old ECW. In the end Benoit picks up the win, but both shake hands in respect for one another.

Match 6: Mike Awesome vs Masato Tanaka - These two stole the show once more. Many were upset with Mike Awesome after he left ECW for WCW in 2000, but he made them take that bad taste out of their mouth after some of the things he did in this particular contest. Tanaka was in top form as well for this one. They did so many table spots that I really couldn't count. In the end Awesome wins the final encounter match between these two. He then Awesome Bombs referee John Finnegan for the hell of it.

Match 7: The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray & D-Von) vs Tommy Dreamer & The Sandman - This was the greatest match of the evening. All four of these guys have respect for each other and it played into this memorable main event. Spike Dudley even comes down to help his brothers. The match takes awhile to start because many ECW alumni ensue in a huge brawl before the match. In the end the Dudleys put Tommy Dreamer through a flaming table for the win. Incredible finish.

Then in the end Stone Cold comes down to the ring with the ECW alumni to wage war on the WWE invaders. In the end Taz makes a surprise appearance and chokes the hell out of JBL.
