TV-14-DLSV - CC - SAP TRANSMITIDO EN ESPANOL - SABU v. ROADKILL (already in the ring - Styles later offers "323 pounds") in an extreme rules match - we immediately join the show in the middle of Roberts' intro... specifically, at "homicidal, genicidal, death defying Sabuuuuuuuu!" Graphics let us know WE ARE LIVE in Roanoke, VA 27.6.6 for episode #3 of ECW on SciFi and we'll just SEE if it FEELS like the fastest hour in all of cable television! Sabu checks under the ring before going in - presumably to know where the tables are ahead of time - smart! Roadkill lunges but Sabus slides under - POINT TO THE SKY! Styles says this is an extreme rules match - I thought EVERY match in ECW was an extreme rules match, but maybe I haven't been paying attention. Point to the sky again - right by Sabu, right, dropkicks the ankle to take them man off his feet, legdrop to the back of the head, going for the camel clutch but Roadkill reaches for the ropes tout suite. Right, right, into the opposite corner sternum first - Sabu springs off the second rope with a tornado DDT! Sabu goes out of the ring - running around and finding a STEEL chair. Chair in, Sabu in, chair in position, going for the triple jump but while vautling Roadkill, Sabu is tripped up - and lands face first into the chair! 1, 2, no! Headbutt by Roadkill, Sabu up on the shoulders - fireman's carry into a neckbreaker! Joey says Roadkill calls that the barn something. 1, 2 - no. Styles gives props to John Cena for his performance at Vengeance. Right hand, into the corner, BIG AVALANCHE by Roadkill, hooking the leg but only gets 2. Roadkill out - and pulling out a table from underneath the ring! But while he's working on that, Sabu has reset his chair - off the ropes and there's a big jump off the chair, *almost* clearing the ropes, somersault, and landing on Roadkill (and ALMOST on his head!) Let's take our first "Double Feature" replay - well, not as close to landing on his head as it first looked. Sabu slides the table into the ring, then tries to point to the sky, but Roadkill lands a pair of forearms to the back. Everybody back in - right by Sabu, off the ropes, swinging "dirt road slam" by Roadkill, 1, 2, no. Joey demonstrates that when you have to explain the joke, it ain't as funny. Sabu put in place, stomp by Roadkill, to the bottom rope, to the SECOND rope, and off with an elbowdrop from the Vaderbomb position! Hooks the leg, but the count is broken when when Sabu grabs the bottom rope (EXTREME!). Roadkill hooks the leg again, but Sabu breaks at 2. Roadkill setting up the table - then turning into a right from Sabu. Shot by Roadkill, again, Sabu placed on the table, ROADKILL points to the sky, and swings the chair to the ribcage! Roadkill on the second rope...nah, too far away - but Sabu is up - chair thrown to the groinular area! Sabu climbing up to meet him - top rope frankensteiner!!! 1, 2, no! Sabu has the chair again - point to the sky - chair thrown at Roadkill's head. Amazingly, Roadkill is still on his feet. Chair to the back, and Roadkill slumps onto the table. Here's the "atomic Arabian facebuster through the table" !!! - Roadkill's face was DOWN, but oh well. Here's the Camel clutch and it would sure be EXTREME for him to tap to it - but he doesn't. Another chair to the back. And another chairshot by Sabu. Now a Camel clutch while sitting on the *chair* on the back - okay, that's extreme enough for Roadkill to tap. (5:22) Replays of the rana, the chair toss to the head, and the legdrop from the top to the table - this one shows that Sabu broke the table with his own ass instead of going through Roadkill and coming back live we see a rather large, bloody wound on his back that must have come from the table wreckage almost STABBING him after he broke it. Point to the sky one more time!

Your hosts are JOE E. STYLES & TA(Z)Z. For fun (or perhaps a drinking game), see how many times you can catch Tazz moving his shades from his forehead to his eyes when he realises the commentary table is on camera. Tonight, this graphic tell us that Rob van Dam takes on Kurt Angle and...something is at stake, we are told, but we have to wait to find out! Let's waste no more time going to our first

AD BREAK: Geico - hey, caveman, don't turn down the FREE MEAL because you're MIFFED - dummy

Here's a look at the vampire - is he walking towards the Roanoke Civic Center?! Well, there's the marquee, anyway.

In the ring: "Big Show, I gotta lot more respect for you after the beating you gave me last week. So all I have to say is: thank you, sir - may I have another?"

TOMMY DREAMER (ready for action) v. WELL IT'S THE BIG SHOW - of course, this probably isn't a match - no intros, no official, no offense for Dreamer - punches are ineffectual, and Show shoves him away, repeat, well it's a big headbutt. Well it's a big headbutt - well it's a big headbutt. In the corner, there's the slap. Dreamer tries a right, well it's a big right. I think that was about eight punches right there. Scoop - and well it's a big slam. Well it's a big...scoop slam again. Not much variety here, but then again, when you're 507 pounds, you probably don't have to. Well it's a THIRD bodyslam. Tommy Dreamer weighs 255 pounds! Here's the cobra clutch (or, if you're Styles, "Japanese sleeper") - backbreaker across the knee - keeping it on and Dreamer's saying good night. Show throws Dreamer from the cobra clutch. Sounds like when you hear the music, the beating is over - Show steps over the top rope and out of the ring. Here's a big replay of..a bodyslam? That's what they picked? Well, here's the cobra clutch frisbee toss again. Show doesn't look back so we won't know if Dreamer's smiling this week or not.

Backstage, Kelly "exhibitions" for ... that guy we saw last week. I don't know how much she could possibly be exhibiting when her bra's still on! But the straps are down. Hey, maybe it's a loving tribute to Kurt Angle! Okay, let's listen to this guy: "Every time I see you, you just blow my mind! I love it! I love to watch. But...I like it when you show ME - just me, not everybody else. If you want to be in public so bad, why don't you just come to the ring with me tonight? Be in my corner. All right? Will you come be in my corner tonight?" "Yes of course I'd love to." No, really, that's how she...delivered her line. "Yes of course I'd love to." The sad thing is, you know that was scripted - and probably not the first take

ECW can be experienced LIVE in Belle Vernon on the 1st, Huntington on the 2nd,
2.1

Philly on the 4th, Racine SOLD OUT on the 8th, and in Green Bay on the 9th! Sure enough, Superstar Steve Austin punks out Sandman while Woman watches. I think he's gonna fall for that EVERY week!

AD BREAK: "Eureka" on SciFi
"Ultraviolet" out on DVD today (Milla gets nekkid, right? 'cause otherwise...what's the point)
BellSouth's package of satellite TV, hi-speed internet and Cingular wireless

"My name is KURT ANGLE. Tonight I face Rob van Dam. If I beat Rob van Dam, I'll earn the right to compete for the WWE Championship at Saturday Night's Main Event. But you already knew that. (What? I didn't know that!) What you probably don't know is, since April 2nd, I've considered every day a failure. Because April 2nd, WrestleMania, is the last day I held a championship belt. And every single night, I come home, and my wife kisses me - when my three year old girl, my little girl looks me in the eyes, and she hugs me, and I put this fake smile on my face...but inside...I hate myself! Because I AM a champion! I am the greatest champion this business has ever seen! And if getting this chance to be champion again means taking Rob van Dam - a man I personally have no problem with - and beating on him so badly, and putting him in such AGONIZING pain he prays to GOD to go back in time so he can choose another line of work, then that's what I'll do. It's what I HAVE to do. Because failure is not an option. Not when your name is - Kurt - Angle."

MIKE KNOX (Phoenix, AZ - 260 pounds - with Kelly) v. DANNY DORING (Wildwood, NJ [or, if you write profiles for ecw.com, "Pepper Pike, OH"] - 219 pounds - ready for action) - Kelly raises her skirt just a tad, but lowers it and gets to ringside at Knox' request. Tazz mentions that it's great that we have an expeditionist on TV. Lockup, to the corner. Break on 4. Doring in - and into a kick from Knox. Knox goes for the bodyslam but Doring escapes - right by Doring, right, off the ropes - but into a Ligerbomb by Know - 1, 2, no. Knee to the back by Knox, knee, now we're watching Kelly instead. She walks over to a fan - I mean plant - and starts "performing" for him. She asks him to undo her top - presumably because she can't - but before we see how THIS proceeds, Knox is out of the ring and piefacing the fan into a HARD shove back into a chair. Crowd boos as Knox repositions Kelly at ringside - back in and he's still distracted just enough for Doring to score with a...running pummelin, I guess. Kelly's walking off as Doring ducks a clothesline off the rope, but not a pump kick. Knox has his elbow around Doring's neck with the leg grapevined, and there's a ...hell, I dunno. Knox fell backward and spun Doring around kinda like Reno's old Roll of the Dice, except inverted. Yeah. But anyway, that'll do it as Knox shoots the half and gets the 1, 2, 3. (1:53) We quickly pan the crowd and discover that Kelly's made her way to the stage area! Get ready to remove your shorts because she'll allegedly strip NEXT!

NEXT MONDAY: after last Monday, what'll happen next? Voiceover guy promises us more SHIT! NEXT WEEK! ON RAW! ONLY ON USA!

AD BREAK: "Ghost Hunters" marathon on SciFi
"Who Wants to be a Superhero? on SciFi
"Superman Returns" opening Wednesday
Gamefly (the Netflix of...oh wait, you already seen this joke)
Bowflex
"Girls Gone Wild: Ultimate Rush" ohhhh noooo I'll have nothing left for Kelllyyyyyyyy

If only this *vignette* were only a Test - what's with the part that looks like a reboot of the Windows operating system? Anyway, TEST IS COMING so hide your daughters

MOMENTS AGO: Let Us Take You Back to the previous segment where Knox left the ring before that "fan" could prove that he can unhook a top faster than Kelly could - there's...that move! And...there's some panties!

Roberts introduces KELLY'S EXPOSE WITH KELLY KELLY. I'm PRETTY sure that's what he said. I could be crazy, but I don't think the reason I never hear any crowd reaction is because that music is drowning 'em out. By the way, even as old as I am, I can still identify "Push the Button" by Sugababes featuring Snoop Dogg! I'm STILL hip! I'm STILL relevant! Ah, who am I kiddin'. OMG the ...thing...came off!
2.3

So now she's in bra and panties (aka "a bathing suit") - and - is she squatting? SHE'S GONNA POOP - hey look it's a butt. OH MAN SHE'S GONNA REMOVE THE BRA THIS WEEK, I CAN FEEL IT - oh, no, here's MIKE KNOX with a towel - but she threw the towel back!!! SHE'S GONNA DO IT! SHE'S GONNA - no, after a rather protracted tease of her bottom geting pulled off (or maybe she's just stretching the elastic - shrug) before the panties go anywhere, Knox is back up, wrapping her with the towel (sorta - she walks away a little faster than the towel can stay with her, but it's okay) - hey, let's get a REPLAY of ...some "dancing"

And here comes...I will guess it's the "fat" stripper from last week's surely award-winning opening backstage segment from RAW. "Lock up your daughters, lock up your wives, lock up the back door and run for your lives!" Commentators would LIKE to run. His robe looks like it once had the word "Jonni" on it if that helps anyone identify him. Off comes the robe - he's oiled up, hooray! Unfortunately, the music ends. But here comes an entirely different tune...and I don't mean Metallica, but still...

THIS GUY v. THE SANDMAN - I will speculate that unlike all the Zombie/Macho Libre marks we had to deal with after the previous episodes, we won't see a lot of "I really marked out for the shirtless fat guy with the suspenders" posts this week. Oh, wait, maybe Sandman is here to party! Beer me. The stripper music starts up again - and there go the pants. Yes, he's in a thong, thanks for wondering. Styles with the mandatory "small package" joke saving us all some trouble. Sandman pretends to bust a gut, the commentators pretend to bust a gut, I ...fail to bust a gut. I know, my heart's just not in the right place, I'm biased, you hate me, why are you even reading this. Stripper grabs Sandman's beer and pours it all over himself. Sandman quickly flips the switch from amused to enraged. Kendo stick up the groin. WHACK to the head. Only five canes this week, alas. Homerun swing takes him through the ropes and out of the ring. Play his fake music again! We get several shots of the cane mark across his almost bare ass. Closeup of Sandman's requisite self-imposed bleeding forehead (from can).

Backstage, Heyman has some words of wisdom for van Dam. "Now I just want you to know what's at stake here tonight. Now, you know you're defending the title in a triple threat match on Saturday Night's Main Event against John Cena and Edge. Now under Triple Threat rules, the champion doesn't even have to be pinned to lose the title - the odds are against the title holder. That's you. Now if Kurt Angle wins tonight, that triple thread match at Saturday Night's Main Event becomes a fatal four-way, which means the odds against you become ... immeasurable. Now I have all the faith in the world in you, Rob, but after the past couple of days, and all that you've been--" "Have you SEEN me the last couple of days, Paul? I have been SMOKIN' Relax. You know why? I'm the ECW world champion - POINTS - TO - SELF - that's all you need." "I understand that you--" Paul is cut off in midsentence (wow, did ALL his sentences start with "Now?") as we cut to

Looking into the crowd, we see that EDGE & CHEATA evict two fans and steal their seats. Well, it's better than the tired old "bought a ticket" scenario, except you'd think the security guys standing RIGHT THERE might do a better job of sticking up for actual the ticket holders...

Here are a lot of clips and stills from Vengeance. Say, you know what this makes me want to do? ORDER THE SPECIAL ENCORE PRESENTATION ALL WEEK! Or, perhaps, download it from my favourite peer-to-peer sharing network for FREEEEE - oh no, I'd NEVER do THAT - that's illegal!

When we come back, Tazz is over the barricade to talk to Edge. He has no business here! What're his motives? "You see Tazz, in case you missed it, I'm the Rated R superstar. I do WHAT I want, when the hell I wanna do it. Yeah, I gotta bring the mic up." "Well, here you can hold the mic, hot shot" and Tazz shoves it in his chest, then goes back over the barrier. "Be careful, 'cause I know how to choke somebody out, too. I came here tonight to watch Kurt Angle and RVD destroy each other, and then I'm gonna beat whoever has the title, because *I* am the whole - effin - SHOW." And he points to himself! I guess they forgot to tell Edge this wasn't a title match...or...is it? Maybe they need to do a better job letting us know this stuff in advance...

ECW'S VERY OWN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST KURT ANGLE v. POINTS TO SELF (Battle Creek, MI - 235 pounds - he is the ECW World Heavyweight Champion) for a slot in the WWE title match at Saturday Night's Main Event - I wonder if we'll get any moves in before we have to take another commercial break. van Dam slaps a lot of hands on the way to the ring - but Edge stays put. I believe that's Mike Posey officiating this match.
2.3

Angle is, yes, sporting the "ECW" mouthpiece. To the ropes while jockeying for position without a real lockup - we get a clean break. "RVD" chant. Lockup, gobehind by Angle. Riding van Dam around - now trying to turn him - Angle paintbrushes him when that fails. van Dam with a headlock, but they're in the ropes again - and a break at 4. Lockup, side headlock by van Dam, Angle shoves him away to break it. Lockup, again van Dam grabs the side headlock, single leg by Angle for 2. Angle on top, van Dam takes it to the ropes. Break. It's claimed that Angle is teaching vam Dam a wrestling lesson. Gut kick by Angle, Euro uppercut. In the corner, Angle with another Euro uppercut, and there's one more. van Dam manages an elbow, standingn switch, elbow, elbow, elbow - into the opposite corner, superfluous somersault up and monkey flip back out. van Dam picks him up, elbow, kick by Angle, headlock takeover, leg scissors counter from van Dam, back to an arm trap by Angle, van Dam with a bridge to prevent a count. Angle moving to an armbar. Van Dam tries a headlock of his own, but Angle still has the arm. Back on their feet. Knee by van Dam breaks it. Elbow by van Dam - man I've forgotten how annoying those elbows are. Why didn't van Dam ever learn how to punch? Kick by van Dam, out of the corner, whip is reversed into a gutshot by Angle but van Dam catches the boot and leaps over the outstreched leg into the spinning windmill kick! van Dam back up first, climbing to the top buckle - and waiting - and waiting - and finally Angle is over to shove him off to the floor. Is a man outside? Fans, that is our cue to take this quick commercial break!

When we come back, Angle has van Dam in - wait for it - a headlock, and we take a quick peek to see that there is also a shoulder squeeze applied on Lita by Edge. Replays indicate that just before the commercial, we saw van Dam kick Angle with the stepover heel kick. Ah, so THAT'S how Angle took control of this match! Commentators remind us what we've seen this hour, which officially makes this a pretty long resthold. By the way, is it REALLY such a good idea to tell us that everything we've seen is something we ALREADY saw LAST week? One might think that it would kinda lessens the incentive to tune in NEXT week if they're just gonna redo everything they did THIS week. I'm probably overthinking. van Dam finally making it back to his feet - mics ARE picking up people cheering him on - and finally van Dam breaks the hold with a jawbreaker. Elbow by van Dam, elbow, whip into the ropes is reversed, van Dam caught - and thrown with a belly-to-belly! Angle is ready to YEAAAAAH. Big handful of hair to bring van Dam to the centre - scooped up - and down across the knee with a backbreaker. 1, 2, no. Angle with a body scissors and...some kind a choke? Hard to say since we keep sneaking peeks at Edge & Lita. Non-threatening 2 count. van Dam actually manages to roll ANGLE down for 2, but Angle rolls back. Still has the hold and now grinding his forearm into van Dam's face for good measure. Tazz says that's a quarter nelson, Styles says he too knows the names of amateur wrestling holds. Angle now has a keylock but van Dam's back on his feet and everybody's pushed into the corner. Break on 4 as Styles confirms that the third man in the ring IS Posey. van Dam with the head to the gut, head to the gut, a third time, and a fourth - sadly, no meaningless backflip - no, wait, I mean, THANKFULLY no meaningless backflip - Angle thrown into the opposite corner but sidesteps the oncoming attacker and van Dam hits the buckle - Angle with a quick waistlock and there's a German suplex! He released him so that's only one suplex. 1, 2, NO! After another ponytail grab, Angle moves to the chinlock and places a knee between the shoulder blades. Now with a camel clutch - a very EXTREME move, perhaps, but one we haven't seen from Angle too much. van Dam fighting back to his feet -elbow to the gut, elbow, elbow breaks it, forearm, forearm, Angle fights back with a foream of his own - into the ropes, van Dam ducks, off the ropes with a spinning heel kick! Both men are down and Posey starts the count. Crowd gets excited because they have a chance to count along. Both men up before 5. van Dam with an elbow, Euro uppercut response by angle, elbow, uppercut, elbow, Angle breaks this cycle with a kick to the gut, van Dam sent into the corner, elbow up by van Dam, quickly off the ropes with a flying kick. Clothesline, clothesline, but Angle grabs the legs as he comes off the ropes and puts van Dam in the corner - head to the buckle is blocked with a foot - but Angle goes under the leg and throws him over his head with a "high cradle suplex!" I'm sure that's called something else - (consults Big Book of Moves) - "Leg Capture Suplex" - well hot damn. It DID look neat, at any rate. Angle hooks the leg - 1, 2, NO! Angle poised an in position - Angle slam NO - van Dam wants to roll him over for a pin but Angle is up quickly, trying for the Anglelock NO van Dam kicks him out - Angle ducks the clothesline, wastlock, released German suplex! Hooks the leg again - 1, 2, shoulder up by the champ! Angle quickly grabs the ankle again - and this time, he's got it! van Dam manages to roll, however - Angle goes over and releases. Angle runs - RIGHT into a superkick. van Dam hooks a leg - 1, 2, Angle gets the shoulder up! Replay of the "crescent kick." van Dam perched on top - but Angle sidesteps the flying kick and grabs the ankle on the way down! ANGLELOCK! van Dam fights and crawls...and grabs the bottom rope! BUT Angle doesn't break the hold! Back to the centre of the ring - and again van Dam makes it to the ropes - this time pulling Angle through the ropes with his leg and letting Angle's body hit the floor! van Dam decides to head out after him - rolling him back in - up and over the top rope and van Dam comes down with a guillotine!
2.5

Cover - 1, 2, NO! Angle surprises van Dam with a quick small package, but HE only gets 2! Into the corner, van Dam sidesteps and gives Angle a drop toe hold into the buckle! Angle up, Angle eats a spinning heel kick! Off the ropes for Rolling Thunder - but Angle gets out of the way and van Dam misses! ANOTHER attempt at the Anglelock, but van Dam has a free foot to repeatedly strike against Angle's ear! Angle is in perfect position - van Dam with a split-legged moonsault!! 1, 2, THAT NEVER GETS A PIN!!! And it didn't here. Angle shot into the corner - no, Angle reverses, ducks a clothesline, waistlock, back elbow by van Dam, another, Angle catches the foot, but also catches a mule kick from the other foot! van Dam up top - but Angle pops up and gives him a superplex! 1, 2, NO!! Uh oh - DOWN COME THE STRAPS! The Olympic Slam is attempted AGAIN - but van Dam shifts and then manages to plant Angle with a DDT! He'll go to the top one more time - and THIS time we will GET that five star frog splash! 1, 2, 3! (17:13) Edge auditions for a part in the "House of Sarcastic Clapping People" ... but stays on his side of the barrier. And now he's walking away. Or is he? van Dam climbs the opposite buckle to pose for the crowd, but the next thing we know, Edge is in the ring and van Dam is eating a SPEAR. And now EDGE is eating Lita's tongue! Edge points to himself then gives us the international sign of "I want da belt." Amazingly, they get it right by NOT playing Edge's music as the WWE copyright notice shows... and we're out, just shy of 10:04.

I'll be late next week - and the week after that. Then maybe I'll quit again. WHO CAN SAY? TELL A FRIEND!

Have to give them credit for putting the GGW ad right before the clip of the former guest GGW PPV Host Test.
Signal that this wasn't an ECW crowd: The longest We Want Cena chant I've heard in a long time during the opening portion of RVD vs. Angle. We aren't in the Bingo Hall anymore Toto.
And, what has never really made sense: You can hit someone with a frying pan. You can cane them right in front of the ref. Hell, you can cane the ref. But, you have to break when reaching the ropes?

I've always seen it not so much as you have to break, but that the ref won't accept a submission when your opponant is in the ropes. You won't get disqualified for failing to break the hold, but you can't win with it either, so you break the hold in order to reposition your opponant. That's why Kurt didn't break the hold at all, the Anglelock allows him to just drag RVD back to the center of the ring.

Mike Knox's finisher looked more like a twisting Flatliner than an inverted Roll of the Dice.

Ongoing Sandman Opponent Rankings
1) The Zombie
2) Macho Libre
3) Fat Stripper

I was tempted to bump Macho down, but Fat Stripper suffers by not being an actual match opponent. Dude was into the act & energetic enough to make it work. Jerking off the cane was a nice touch. Skimpy attire & manboobs aside, it wasn't THAT unbearable.

That's a good description, too. We could probably also rock some form of "inverted" and "leg sweep" and "Final Cut" in there as well.

Since I'm here, let me go check the Big Book of Wrestling Moves...

(checks)

Naw, coming up empty. It's kinda like the description of CIMA's "Inverted Facelock Leg Sweep DDT" except Knox added a twist on top of it.

    Well, it's better than the tired old "bought a ticket" scenario, except you'd think the security guys standing RIGHT THERE might do a better job of sticking up for actual the ticket holders...


If it makes you feel any better, if you're listening closely, one of the security guys says something like "You heard the man, move." So maybe Edge paid them off.

If it helps at all, Alex Shelley has been using that move in his arsenal for quite some time. Mostly in ROH...he may use it in TNA as well, but I have to plead ignorant as I watch TNA about once a month (maybe).

Any ROH or specifically Shelley marks that could help us out here?

UPDATE (cue "Unsolved Mysteries" music)

According to his wikipedia entry, he calls it the Shellshock. In the entry, it's described as a "Swinging reverse STO or swinging fisherman's backbreaker." I prefer "Swinging reverse STO" myself.

I like that, except I always associate "fisherman's" with "arm around the leg" and that wasn't happening - the leg was in Russian legsweep position when he started.

Come to think of it, I should have busted out "fisherman's" for the "high cradle suplex" call, which I didn't really like (because I didn't think it was accurate enough) - maybe even "Northern Lights fisherman suplex" although there was a release - man, I'm a NERD

The Thrill has reminded me that I misspelled "Pussycat Dolls" as "Sugababes" and also "Buttons" as "Push the Button." My only excuse is I keep both songs in the same iTunes folder (UK TOP 40 HITS OF 2006) and I didn't actually listen to either of them last night when I should have been double checking that - if I had, I would have realised I picked the one that DIDN'T actually have a Snoop Dogg rap in it. Oh well. Also, I think this means I can't make any jokes at The Thrill's expense for a week or something. NO PROMISES

Hm. Could she be related to Kevin Kelly? Or is this like when Molly Holly showed up and people thought they were going to call her Holly Holly?

Actually, the song is "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls featuring Snoop Dogg.

...and I am left feeling dirty for noticing that.

Sabu checks under the ring before going in - presumably to know where the tables are ahead of time - smart!

That's what I was thinking! He's looked like a goof not knowing ahead of time

Sabu goes out of the ring - running around and finding a STEEL chair.

And then he goes and loses track. Sabu rolled out and went straight to where the chairs *should* be - right next to the Announcer's Table! But...ha haha - EXTREME PRODUCTION requires the setup be Tazz and Joey (and the chairs) WAY OVER THERE! Oops. But Sabu runs around like a nut really good, so no "YOU FUCKED UP" chants. Except from me.

For fun (or perhaps a drinking game), see how many times you can catch Tazz moving his shades from his forehead to his eyes when he realises the commentary table is on camera.

Replays indicate that just before the commercial, we saw van Dam kick Angle with the stepover heel kick. Ah, so THAT'S how Angle took control of this match!

Commentators remind us what we've seen this hour, which officially makes this a pretty long resthold. By the way, is it REALLY such a good idea to tell us that everything we've seen is something we ALREADY saw LAST week? One might think that it would kinda lessens the incentive to tune in NEXT week if they're just gonna redo everything they did THIS week. I'm probably overthinking.

This EXTREME PRODUCTION setup will take some getting used to, obviously.

Naw, coming up empty. It's kinda like the description of CIMA's "Inverted Facelock Leg Sweep DDT" except Knox added a twist on top of it. Hopefully Styles will give us an inane name next time we see it. Or...maybe one day there'll be a profile of this new "Extremist" on the ecw.com website! YEAH!

RATINGS:

(from Scherer)

This week's edition of ECW on Sci Fi did a 2.2 cable rating, with a 4 share. That is down slightly from last week's 2.3 cable rating. The good news for the show is that the numbers built throughout the program, starting with a 1.9 quarter hour, going to a 2.1, then a 2.3, 2.3 and a 2.5.

Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

But, how could the ratings go down this week, when the excuse last week was that the Heat/Mavericks Game 6 was head-to-head with ECW (forgetting for a moment that Heat/Mavericks Game 3 was head-to-head with the first episode of ECW). Scherer called it a solid number due to the competition las week, yet this week the number started .1 lower and continued .1 lower throughout the show.

You're biased, or something.

Thanks for the quarters - I've inserted them back into the original report. (Does anybody have last week's?)

I can't believe I laughed hard at reading Lita called "Cheata" by CRZ. It's the little touches that always get me with recaps by Zed.

I offer my thanks for doing all these ECW recaps here because I only just discovered that you were doing them. Your attention to detail is very much appreciated for the second show because I missed almost all of it.

I only wish you could have recapped the house show I went to at the Bingo Hall on the 24'th.

I ain't found them - but, I was going to ask if you wanted to do this - the point last time was "competition", or lack of it. But, I guess this is competing with failure, so ...there? Live Time Feedback!

Scherer is a fun source. Going forward, I guess that's the thing

BIAS!

Quarter hour rankings ... very nice touch.

I like the lighting better this week. It had that old MSG feel to it.

Where was Sandman when the whole DX skit was going on and on and on Monday?

*They* are saying Vince has taken full control already, so it's possible the show might have a whole new feel next week.
