ECW One Night Stand '05

1. Lance Storm vs. Chris Jericho – 6
2. Tajiri vs. Super Crazy vs. Little Guido – 6
3. Psicosis vs. Rey Mysterio – 5
4. Rhyno vs. Sabu – 5
5. Chris Benoit vs. Eddy Guerrero – 7
6. Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka – 7
7. Dudley Boyz vs. Tommy Dreamer and The Sandman – 4

This was the huge E.C.W. reunion show put on by W.W.E. The overall feeling of the show was pretty electric, with a mostly hot crowd throughout the night. The wrestling left a little bit to be desired, though. Storm and Jericho was good, but was only a tiny glimpse of what they can do. I liked the international three-way. Rey and Psicosis disappointed thoroughly, and the crowd was real harsh. Although not an instant classic by any means, I liked Benoit versus Guerrero; their capable of a lot more, but this was simple and solid, with a clean finish. Awesome and Tanaka put on a brutal match, per their usual fare. However, their signature spots were rushed, and it hurt the structure of their match. The main event was easily the worst match in terms of work rate, although it was entertaining in regards to sheer violence. Overall, it was great to see the E.C.W. crew back together; but if they were running shows like this consistently, I’d rather them stay a fond memory.

unfortunately for us that memory has been raped, burned and incinerated beyond recognition...well, at least they gave Balls Mahoney a paycheck for awhile....or maybe not
