Over a decade ago Dave Scherer was inventing the "Flair is Dead" chant at the ECW arena. Tonight Flair's fighting for the ECW championship while Shane Douglas stars in shitty TNA vignettes as a..."coach" for the Naturals, I think. Scherer's still asking you to click on the ads, so at least SOME things don't never change.

As for the WWE, things weren't selling so well around these parts. The Monday Mankato show for the Smackdown! crew was cancelled, and tonight's show saw the entire upper deck (including the seats I'd bought!) stuck underneath the OMINOUS BLACK TARP - however, they STILL seemed to have a pretty good crowd in the lower deck and the floor. How many of those people might have simply won tickets from 93X that morning will remain a mystery, though. On the plus side, none of the performers died this morning...

It's 2AM and I have to work in seven hours, so expect a slapdash rehash - PUSH THE BUTTON

CABLE GUIDE: Why Big Show & Paul Heyman turned on RVD. (L) TV-14, CC.


LAST WEEK: Oh, go read the report yourself - my goodness, Show hit him so hard the video itself was distorted with SHOCK WAVES and WASHED OUT COLOUR

TV-14-DLSV-CC The tribe of extreme blah blah blah, let the ratings hit the floor (hey, I'm not above the easy joke)

WE ARE LIVE from the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN 11.7.6 for Episode #5 of ECW on SCIFI!

TONIGHT: Big Show defends the world championship in an Extreme Rules match against Ric Flair!

We go from the theme from ECW to...the theme from ECW! "Ladies and gentlemen, PAUL HEYMAN," flanked by TWO RIOT COPS, NEITHER OF WHICH IS BRIAN LEE, I'm ASSUMING, hits the ring. The cops stay outside. Graphics remind us this show is also transmitido en espanol - SAP! Styles calls Heyman "the extreme Judas" while Tazz says Heyman hasn't been returning his calls asking just what exactly was going on. Kim notes that the baseball cap is gone, replaced by the bald head, so he must be a HEEL now. "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman." This must be an important point! "And last week, I made sure that Rob van Dam LOST the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. Ladies and gentlemen, please don't blame ME for Rob van Dam's downfall. I think it's time you were honest with yourselves, and blamed...*yourselves* for Rob van Dam's downfall. You see, you people are the reason that Rob van Dam is no longer the ECW World Heavyweight Champion. Furthermore, you people are the reason that I had to suspend Rob van Dam for thirty days. And I did it for Rob van Dam's own well being, because let's face facts, you people are the down of Points To Self. Aw, come on. *I* tried to talk reason with Rob van Dam - I tried to slow van Dam down - not to defend the title every night. But you people - you people were driving Rob van Dam into an early retirement. You people were drivingn Rob van Dam into an early grave. You people were forcing Rob van Dam to burn himself out, defend the title every night, your chants of RVD, RVD, made him jump off the top rope, sacrifice his own body, you people--" pause for chant "--ladies and gentlemen, those chants, your chants of RVD drove Rob van Dam to the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. And drove ME to put an end to it all. I get it. I understand. It's difficult for you people to comprehend the sacrifices that I've made for ECW. It's HARD to understand what it's like to be a martyr, because that's exactly what I am. Just because there's no stigmata on my hands doesn't mean I'm not your saviour! And I have crucified my ten year friendship with my brother Rob van Dam, and I make that sacrifice for YOUR sins. And I wear that sacrifice on my sleeve like a badge of honour! I promise you...I promise you...I will BE your Messiah. I promise you I will continue to make decisions that benefit no man, no woman, no child, not even my own children! I will make decisions that are for the betterment and for the benefit of ONLY ECW. Because as your Messiah, ladies and gentlemen, I promise you, I WILL LEAD ECW TO THE PROMISED LAND! And my children, you're all coming with me. Because forever stamped on the soul of Paul Heyman are the letters - E - C - W!" Uh...what?

Your commentators are JOE E. STYLES & TAZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Backstage we follow Heyman & associates - let's see who got paid to stare at him disapprovingly this week. Roadkill's there, there's the FBI (well, Guido & Tony at least), there's Balls, there's Stevie, and there's Tommy. Tommy starts to speak but the mic isn't in the right spot. Ah, he's "...having a really hard time with all this. We all stood by you. What happened? What are you thinking?" "You know, I've been wanting to talk to you. And, and I owe you an explanation you more than anybody else. I really DO have an explanation, and I want to take the time to give you the RIGHT explanation...but there's no time right now, because your match is next. Your match! I'm looking forward to watching it!" And he keeps talking while walking away...


TONIGHT: KELLY'S EXPOSE with Candice Michelle!

RAW ad - what happened on Saturday Night's Main Event? Which Diva Search contestant's dreams go up in smoke? Heeeeeey I don't like the sound of "up in smoke" - sounds SINISTER and SUSPENSION-WORTHY

TOMMY DREAMER (Yonkers, NY - 265 pounds) v. TEST (Toronto, ON, Canada - 285 pounds - with Let Us Take You Back to Last Week) - Dreamer is still in his street clothes, taping up his fists on the way to the ring. Tazz, on discovering Test is the opponent: "Oh, MAN!" Last week, Test demolished Al Snow and gave Head to some Philly fan.

Test with a slap to the face. Dreamer asks for another, and gets it. Dreamer decides to fight back - right, right, right, right, right, right, into the ropes, reversed, head down, kick by Dreamer, clothesloine puts Test AND Dreamer out on the floor. But Test quickly picks up Dreamer and puts him spine-first into the post. Tazz reminds us this is NOT an Extreme Rules match. Oh! Everybody back in. Dreamer on all fours, Test lying in wait. Clothesline in the corner by Test. Test is very scary muscular looking. Into the opposite corner hard, and Dreamer crumples. Test putting in the bad mouth. "You're a loser!" Back elbow. Kick, kick, kick, kick, kick, stomp, stomp stomp stomp stomp. Test is proclaimed "intense." Got him up - backbreaker across the knee down. Dreamer screaming in pain. Test informs Dreamer that he's nothing. And there's a...bearhug? Nay, an EXTREME bearhug! Dreamer finally puts two thumbs in the eye sockets and that'll break it. Dreamer with "Iblockyourpunchyoudon'tblockmine," again, knee by Test, Dreamer shot into the corner, but knee up by Dreamer - and a flying neckbreaker out! Back up, ducks a clothesline from Test, neckbreaker down! Dreamer rips off his shirt to reveal a "EC F'N W" T underneath (buy yours now at WWESHOP.COM!) and the crowd roars. Here we go - gutshot - but Test spins out of the DDT attempt, kick to double over Dreamer, HE has him in a full nelson - and into a chokeslam from there. Test going up top - but the Savage elbow MISSES! Dreamer up - scoops him up and wants the Spicolli Driver, but Test grabs the top rope and turns it into a rollup on Dreamer - AND gets an arm AND a leg on the ropes for good measure - AND gets a 1, 2, 3. (3:55)

Backstage, Candice tells Kelly that when they dance in a moment, she's going to make it...rather...extreme. Hey, how about respecting personal space, Candice? Geez.

TONIGHT: Flair - Show - Extreme - Championship

"Sports Entertainment's Most Dominating Force" is the guy that DOESN'T have a belt? Ohhhh....kay. Check this out: Saturday Night's Main Event - is - SATURDAY NIGHT!

Take a look at the Target Center! No vampires hang about!

Joey throws it to ARIEL, THE TAROT CARD READER. Oops, be careful what you wish for! "What does the future hold? (card) What does the future hold? (card) The future holds...blood." And then the vampire shows up (oops again), pulls back Ariel's hair to show ... something on her neck, and then he splits red stuff onto the camera lens again.

KELLY'S EXPOSE WITH KELLY KELLY KELLY KELLY and "her guest, from Monday Night RAW, CANDICE MICHELLE!" Candice and Kelly - ahem - "dance" - to "Chelsea" by Stefy ( (by God, I got THIS one right the first time!) - I know, I know, it's SUPPOSED to be sexy....and yet...... to make matters worse, they find some way to REALLY making the lighting (and shadows from the lighting) totally unflattering, as if the *illusion* of cellulite would somehow sex things up. Anyway, as you might expect MIKE KNOX comes out with a towel and drags away Kelly, who throws the towel back, but before she can get back to ...whatever they're doing, THE SANDMAN is out, so the girls scatter back to backstage. Sandy does his Batista-thumbs-up-thumbs-down impersonation, then WHACKS Knox with the cane - cane, cane, cane to the head and now Knox is on the stage. I should probably mention the "CIRCLE ME BERT" sign which is locally funny and nationally confusing. One more cane to the head for Knox, who falls back and behind the stage. Play his (alleged) music! Drink a beer! Open up your forehead! Congratulate the powers that be for finding a way to combine AND knock off two "hey, didn't I see this last week?" shots in one go!

Time now for a quick tale of the tape!

In a WAR AGAINST THE SYSTEM. See, I'm not just some kid looking for the next thrill - I'm an extremely disciplined athlete CRAVING to compete with the very best. MY name is C.M. PUNK."

(the suicidial, homicidal, genocidal, death-defying) SABU (with ticket info for 1 August taping at Hammerstein - buy SATURDAY!) v. JUSTIN CREDIBLE (Ozone Park, NY - 225 pounds) - Sabu is already throwing chairs on his way to the ring, and in the ring. Also, he points to the sky a lot. Sabu will appear on Saturday Night's Main Event! Sabu dives and misses, legdrop by Credible, another legdrop, right, right, right, right, right. Up, right, right, into the opposite corner, boot up by Sabu, coming out, Credible into the corner, throw, off the ropes with a leg lariat, 1, 2, no. Credible out - Credible forgot which part of the ring the tables were under - table found and out, as commentators remind us that this is NOT an Extreme Rules match. Boy, this "Extreme Rules" stuff can sure be confusing! Sabu flips over the top and onto Credible on the floor!! Credible put back in, Sabu back up and over with a somersault legdrop, 1, 2, no. Styles sneaks in the name of the official here, but says it SO fast I have absolutely no hope of relaying it to you. "Johnsomething." Sabu back out and setting up the table - which ALREADY looks like it's seen some wear and tear. Credible comes back during this brief distraction with a baseball slide dropkick out of the ring and onto Sabu. Right hand by Credible. Sabu whipped into the apron - Credible comes in and lunges, and Sabu puts HIM hard into the apron. Then, onto the table. Sabu on the apron - on the second rope - legdrop OFF the second rope onto the table! Oops, he just lost. (DQ 1:50) A disqualification on an ECW show? I just don't know what to believe in anymore. On the other hand, could this be the start of a win streak that puts Justin Credible BACK ON TRACK TO THE ECW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP oh wait Sabu just pointed to the sky again. I LOVE that!

"My name is BALLS MAHONEY. And I know some of you people out there may laugh when you hear that name. But I like it. It's who I am - a little but nuts, and always ready to go to that ring and give it my all. NO INHIBITIONS! Balls to the wall. Balls Mahoney. E - C - W - original." Man he's got a lotta scars up there

Commentators tell us how last night's challenge brought about THIS night's match

"For those of you who don't know who I am, I am the Nature Boy Ric Flair - sixteen times the world heavyweight champion, and right here tonight on ECW, I'm gonna chase seventeenth world title! At the expense of the Big Show, before I start talkin' about Show, let me make some comments on Mick Foley's verbiage last night - Foley, quit CRYIN', quit WHININ'. Grow somethin' down here! I wanna see you face to face with a green light on your forehead. Your kinda match, your terms, ANYWHERE in the world. That's what I want, Foley. Grow up, be a MAN! As for you Big Show - I knew you when you started, kid - big MAN, all the tools! All the ability. Look where ya are now...the world heavyweight champion of ECW. You've been WCW Champion, WWE Champion, and now you're the ECW champion - something I've never had, something I've never WANTED - until now! My seventeenth title? Do I have it in me? Are you kiddin' me, big man? Look me in the eye! Look me in the eye! It's Ric Flair! Make no mistake, have no compassion, have no heart, and have very little respect for me in that ring tonight, because if YOU make a mistake, I'm gonna EAT you ALIVE! I'm gonna EAT you ALIVE, big man! I WANT to be the champion for the seventeenth time! ECW Heavyweight Champion...thenatureboyricflair TONIGHT! Big Show...I'm coming. Woooo!"

We do a shoes-to-mohawk pan upwards. FINALLY we can answer the question: "Just where the heck has the Prince of Punk Shannon Moore been?" Graphic: "SHANNON MOORE IS COMING!"

ECW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP graphic. Here come the challenger, forcing referee Mike Posey to hold the ropes open for him. RAW graphic for Flair. Here come the champion.

Take it away, Mr. Roberts! "This match, set for one fall, is being held under Extreme Rules. It is for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship! Introducing first, the challenger. Representing RAW, from Charlotte, North Carolina, is a sixteen time World Heavyweight Champion...the Nature Boy, RIC FLAIR! And his opponent, standing at seven feet tall, weighing 507 pounds, he is the current ECW World Heavyweight Champion - THE BIG SHOW!" Posey checks both men, while my wife notes that Show gained back the seven pounds between the time they put up the "Tale of the Tape" graphic and now. ("Must have been at the all you can eat sushi boat!") Ring the bell! They're circling, but no contact yet. Are they gonna go or not? Finally, they tie up, Show shoves Flair into the corner and steps back. Lockup, to the corner, slap to the chest, by Show, Flair tries an eyerake but Show ignores it, headbutt, kick, Flair drops down and rolls out as Show tries one more stomp. Oh, is a man outside the ring? We'll be right back!

"Dragon Dynasty" on SciFi

What was that, a FIVE minute ad break? Holy shnikes.

When we come back Flair is chopping away in the corner on Show...until Show shoves him away. Flair back up, right, chop, knee by Show, into the ropes, pressed overhead with ease...and slammed to the mat. Well it's a - well, three big headbutts. (I was gonna cut down on that since he's champ and all, but headbutts just seem to invite that call from me.) We've been cutting to the closeup of Show, which must mean Flair's blading himself - this is a lot easier to confirm when you're seeing him swipe at his forehead from your seat in the arena, by the way. Sure enough, he's bleeding when we television viewers see him again. Flair in the corner - right hand from Show, right, right, right, right, right. Flair tries a chop, no effect, chop, Show with a right. Show slaps the chest. And again. FLAIR FLOP! Flair is crimson fast. Well it's a big headbutt. Well it's a big knife edge chop. Well it's another big chop. Flair bealed out of the corner. Clothesline over the top rope and Flair goes to the floor. Flair goes under and pulls out a garbage can full of weaponry - I see Foley's barbed wire baseball bat in there, will we see him later tonight? Show is out and over to meet Flair - Flair with a chop, Show right, Flair chop, Show right, right, rolls Flair back in. Cut to a horrified female fan - which I don't understand because apparently women see a lot more blood a lot more often than I....won't finish that thought. Everybody's back in the ring now. Here comes the vertical suplex. Flair is begging off, but I don't think Show's in the mood to listen. Guess I'm wrong; commentators say Flair is telling Show to bring it on. Both men to their feet, Flair with a right, right, chop, chop, right, left, right, chop, aaand no effect because well it's a big headbutt. Flair sent into the ropes, caught for a half speed powerslam. Show heads...where? I guess he's answering a fan. "But I'm rich! Kiss my ass and shut up." Styles reminds us that Giant won his second WCW title from Flair in 1996. Back to Flair - chop from Flair, headbutt from Show. Not exactly a technical masterpiece thus far. Show measuring a straight right - no, check that, as Flair decides on a new strategy and lands an uppernut. And a second one! Show shoves Flair away, but Flair meets him with a kick to the nuts when he comes back in. Flair gets a head of steam - field goal kick to the nuts as Show's back is turned! Styles proclaims it " That is THE most BLATANT low blow in wrestling history!" Dare I say this has advanced to the level of STRATEGERY. Flair going out - plundah brought in. Flair is TAKING IT TO THE EXTREME! Barbed wire baseball bat in hand - BAT TO THE HEAD! Again, the camera finds horrified females for reaction shot. Bat shot! Bat wire GROUND into the forehead. I reckon Show's blading here as we watch Flair - sure enough. Flair with the garbage can - to the head. Big Show STILL on his feet. Flair bends the can over Show's head - STILL on his feet. Flair with the chair. BE CHAIR TO FLAIR! BE CHAIR TO FLAIR! TIMMMMMMMBERRRRRRRRRR! Flair covers - 1, 2, Show kicks out WITH AUTHORITY. Flair checks the garbage can - nah, useless. Flair back to...a bag of thumbtacks. Ewwwwww..."tacks and blood" shot of the mat. Chair to the head of Show one more time - and again - Show staggeting - whack - TIMMMMBERRRRRR and onto the tacks. THIS time they find a CHEERING female fan - well, two out of three, anyway. Closeup of Show-as-pin-cushion. Oh oh, he looks pissed. Well it's a big clothesline. Got him - AHHHH THE CHOKESLAAAAAM. But he's not done - cobra clutch - DROPS him in a backbreaker while keeping it on...and

now taking him to the mat as well. Show is bleeding all over Flair (eww) and Posey doesn't take long to decide Flair's out. Show retains the title. (13:25) Show STILL isn't done - picked up in the cobra clutch one more time - then tossed onto the pile of thumbtacks! Play his music! The right half of Show's face can't be seen from the blood. He's still got some stuck in him, but not in a very large part of his back. Flair, on the other hand, has rolled up and he's done a little bit better with HIS tack distribution. Show walks out as we take some more looks and angles of Flair. Replays of the chairshot onto the thumbtacks. Flair actually does a strut after that. Here's a replay of the cobra clutch backbreaker...and the knockout. AND the "ragdoll" toss onto the thumbtacks. The MEDIC and a few more REFS are out to help Flair get out of the ring. He's got a tack in his skull - ewwwww. "Thank you Flair" chant. Let's play HIS music as well. Sure feels like they've ended too early again. Flair stops to sit on the steps. Now he's back up and they're walking him to the back. It's only 10:03, so let's take one more replay of Show choking out Flair. WWE copyright notice is up. "Can ANYONE beat The Big Show?"

As the earlier ad said, next week's show airs at 11PM (10 Central), one hour later than usual. Let's see what's pre-empting it...the premiere of "Eureka" is two hours?! I think someone should be offended! (Let's see what kinda ratings THAT show pulls.)

Thank you, and good night!

I think they should mention RVDs drug "problem" in some way and have him feud with Mr drug free C.M. Punk! Could be a great series of matches!

Re: Kelly Kelly and Candace

The dance number is a lot more humorous if you realize that Candace was just pretending Kelly was the pole... and that that was a pretty smart idea on her part, to boot.

I haven't watched ECW or indy wrestling in the past, so I'd say that it doesn't come off as clunky as it's written. I thought the introductions served a natural purpose for those of us who DON'T know who some of these guys are.

Now that's funny. Not a local, but I get it...thanks to MLB Extra Innings from Comcast (fans, call your operator now)!

If I ever appear at a national wrestling event (aka "if I ever get free tickets and there's nothing on TV"), I'll have a "Trapezoid Me, CRZ" sign.

You were at the arena, so maybe they announced it, but I wasn't sure whether Sabu was dq'ed or whether it was a double countout, since the refs count was around 8 when Sabu climbed the ropes. Sabu did seem to be miss by a slight bit as well. Of course, it sort of defeats many purposes of ECW having only 1 match per night under ECW rules.
Nice seeing someone other than Sandman bleed.
If Ric Flair has to introduce himself, something is seriously wrong.
I thought Flair was throwing punches when on his knees, rather than his classic begging off position.
Now we know why Foley doesn't where wrestling tights, especially when thumbtacks are around. Seeing those tacks in Flair's knee hurt my knee just watching. When using thumbtacks, wear as many layers of clothing as possible.
And, now they have the excuse for 7/18 when they have no competition: different timeslot.
If they aren't building up to Punk vs. RVD, then Punk's promos make little sense. Or at least Punk vs. Sabu.
If Heyman is the messiah that he proclaims himself to be, does that mean Jews for Jesus will have to change their name to Jews for Heyman?

Commentators mentioned a DQ, which I took as confirmation of my original guess (ref calls for the bell immediately after Sabu puts Credible through the table).

Da Meltz says the overall was 2.4 (second best for the series) - and Da Scher has provided the quarters, which are now in Post #1.

Thanks, CRZ, for the manly endurance you displayed for, fans?

A quick trip to Wikipedia via Google revealed what "Circle Me, Bert" meant. At first I thought it was yet another "Tickle Me Elmo" parody.

Some floor the ratings hit this week. I'm not saying that because I want ECW as is to succeed (I turned it off before Show vs. Flair), I like to visualize abstract concepts.

Now about the ratings, some people in a certain fandom I participate are probably fuming that their show is more deserving for (relatively) good or better ratings. They may be right, but I'm used to seeing "crap" shows succeed thus any analysis about the fate of ECW based on ratings doesn't bother me.

Flair as a babyface = ratings going back to the Edge program and well before that going back to the dying days o' Nitro.

Is Raven locked up in TNA long term, because he is really the only ECW guy other than maybe the Dudleyz I could see them bringing in and pushing with some credibility.

I was very disappointed to learn that RiYno decided to stay with TNA instead of showing up in ECWWE.
