Okay I was looking up some old shit on PPV's, and came across something that made my jaw drop. ECW's Massacre on 34th Street in December of 2000 is reported as having a 0.98 buyrate. I looked at a couple more sites, one that I trust very much, to disprove this, and the same number.

Is this legit? I know the company got some pity buys during the last few shows, but there is no way in hell they jumped from a .20 average to nail a .98. Is there?

I think that was the only ECW PPV I bought. So, yeah, it is possible Not that I am that powerful of a force, but I know that I was suckered into a pity buy there at the end.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

That's a show I'm looking to pick up at least on VHS. Can't say I bought it the first time it aired.

I can't find evidence handy to disprove, it, but there's no way it was .98.

TOA has no ECW PPV doing a .3 even. I'd guess it's a type and it's supposed to be .18 or even .08 before .98

That would of been great if it was that high. I thought that PPV was pretty good.

Was this the PPV where Nova came back as a bad ass or was that Guilty as Charged?

I just remember him and Hammerick having a great impromptu match with Chris hitting a Top Rope Frankenstiener that got the whole building chanting Holy Shit.

Just off the top of my head I think this was the show with an awesome Whipwreck/Tajir v Super Crazy/Kid Kash match along with a really good I quit match between Dreamer and CW Anderson. I think the main event was a four way between Corino, Lynn, Sandman and Credible with Corino winning the title and then Sandman stealing it.

Well here http://www.100megsfree4.com/wiawrestling/pages/ecw/ecwppvbr.htm they say it was a 0.98. I don't know where they got their info or where you got yours, but they confirm the number.

It's not actual confirmation across the board though, it's just one original site, possibly that one, accidentally posting the wrong information and having it copied from every subsequent site that wants to start their own list by cribbing from existing lists.

Unless there's some story I forgot about a bunch of PPV distributors not even bothering to carry to the last ECW PPV and thus the buyrate (percentage of buys-to-availablity) would be artificially super-high. Even if that's the case and 0.98 is technically a real number and not just a typo for .08, the show still realistically did a miniscule amount of buys.

You're kinda combining Massacre and GaC.

Massacre had the tag match, while GaC had the "I Quit" match

Here are the cards for both:

Massacre on 34th Street

December 3, 2000 in New York City, NY
Hammerstein Ballroom drawing 2,600 ($160,000)
Shown live on PPV


1. Christian York & Joey Matthews beat Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger (5:38) when York pinned Swinger.

2. EZ Money pinned Balls Mahoney (7:52).

3. Nova pinned Julio Dinero (5:57).

4. Danny Doring & Roadkill beat Little Guido & Tony Mamaluke (9:01) to win the ECW Tag Title when Guido was pinned.

5. CW Anderson pinned Tommy Dreamer (16:47).

6. ECW TV Champ Rhino pinned Spike Dudley (9:51).

7. Mikey Whipwreck & Yoshihiro Tajiri beat Super Crazy & Kid Kash (18:24) when Tajiri pinned Crazy.

8. ECW Champ Steve Corino beat Justin Credible and Jerry Lynn (22:51) in a "three way dance."
* Credible pinned Lynn (11:42).
* Corino pinned Credible (22:51).

Guilty as Charged 2001

January 7, 2001 in New York City, NY
Hammerstein Ballroom drawing 2,500
Shown live on PPV



1. Cyrus & Jerry Lynn beat Christian York & Joey Matthews (2:41) when Cyrus pinned Matthews.

2. ECW Tag Champs Danny Doring & Roadkill beat EZ Money & Julio Dinero (10:06) when Doring pinned Dinero.

3. Nova pinned Chris Hamrick (5:30).

4. Tommy Dreamer beat CW Anderson (14:11) in an "I quit" match.

5. Mikey Whipwreck & Yoshihiro Tajiri beat Little Guido & Tony Mamaluke and Super Crazy & Kid Kash (13:31) in a "triangle" match.
* Mamaluke pinned Kash.
* Whipwreck & Tajiri beat Guido & Mamaluke (13:31).

6. Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger NC Balls Mahoney & Chilly Willy (0:48).

7. Sandman beat Steve Corino and Justin Credible (13:20) in a "three way tables, ladders, chairs, and canes " match to win the ECW Title.

8. Rhino pinned Sandman (1:00) to win the ECW Title.

9. Rob Van Dam pinned Jerry Lynn (19:30).


I have the Guilty as Charged VHS, and found the show to be rather lackluster, with Lynn/RVD being surprisingly boring.

Heatwave 98 is a damn good show though, if anyone's looking for some ECW to buy.
