I was wondering if anyone saw the PPV and their opinions on it. I found a website that streamed the PPV and I was really disappointed. I've been a die hard ECW fan since i was a kid and for that to be their final stand really disappointed me. The best match I thought was 2 Cold Scorpio and C.W. Anderson. It was awesome to Scop in the ring again and he was just as entertaining as he was back in the day.

haha i forgot about how funny Gertner was on the mic. I thought most of the matches were slow and predictable. Through out the PPV everyone kept talking about the energy ECW had back in the day. Overall I didn't feel that energy at all.
This PPV sucked. Let me tell you why... well what do you get when you mix an ECW PPV that can't even use the term ECW? You get this. Name changes for wrestlers that were crappy and ill thought out. You have "EXTREME WRESTLERS"... that didn't even take advantage of the no rules part of ECW. We saw the 3 best performed matches being the thrown together 3 way between Runt (Spike), Rhino, and Al Snow... Scorpio and CW Anderson, and the main event. Raven and Dreamer looked uninspired and while it had the most extreme moment (which tied with the flaming table spot in the tag match) in the form of the Barbed wire aided crossface, overall it was 2 broken guys trying to break themselves further and it looked bad.
Everything else was highly forgetable, the part after the Team 3D vs. Cojones (Balls) and Axl Rotten where the Gangstas came back and destroyed everybody would have been OK...but they all hugged and it killed the mood. The opening match of Diamond and Swinger with Kid Kash vs. the FBI, was stupid. Which is unfortunate, considering that at one point in time this COULD have been a hugely outstanding match up with the talent, but that time is long since gone. Justin Credible... or rather PJ Pollako or whatever the fuck it was against Stevie Richards was either under average or just barely average and didn't make sense, other than to throw a couple of guys in there for a match. Like I said, the PPV sucked, the first One Night Stand was a good enough way that MOST of these guys should have gone out and nobody outside of maybe the Blue Meanie would think so, since he got tagged by JBL in the eye. What the first One Night Stand did for ECW, this one PISSED ALL OVER.
And what kind of "review" would this be if I didn't mention that goddamn blue light. What the fuck was the point of using nothing but that shitty blue light? They would have been better off using some white fluorescent lighting. It may have BARELY worked in the arena, but it looked like shit on a stream or TV.
Best Matches: RVD vs Sabu Scorpio vs CW Anderson Brother Runt vs Snow vs Rhino.
Best actual part of the PPV Joel Gertner
Worst match: Diamond & Swinger w/ Kash vs. the FBI
Oh and hey, Simon does have a problem, but it wasn't what he said on the PPV... it was the fact that he let himself go and looked horrible.
And hey, I loved ECW to death, but what I saw on Sunday was an abomination that should have NEVER been done. Most of us could have let Vinnie Mac slide for his bastardized version of ECW, because thats just the way he is, but getting them all back together some years later was a big mistake. This is how ECW goes out on a low point, thank you TNA/Dreamer for leaving a bad taste in my mouth.
