Manage episode 351211164 series 2883465
It’s NEW YEAR’S EVE & it’s time for the 7th episode of our journey through ECW 1995. Episode 7 of Season 2 is here and as per usual ACEFIELD RETRO returns with MIKE BELCASTER to chat about an extreme happening. We take on HARDCORE HEAVEN 1995 and will dissect all of the HARDCORE TV results from where we last left off to continue building some much-needed context for our journey into ECW’s influential year. We are without BENOIT, GUERRERO & MALENKO for the first time as they are in JAPAN but this gives us a preview of what it’ll be like when they leave for WCW. It’s time for ECW to try and full the massive void. We have another CACTUS JACK and SANDMAN match for the ECW TITLE. It’s here: we have the TAIPEI DEATH MATCH between the IAN & AXL ROTTEN. We had a title change since the last time we came to you & STEVIE RICHARDS/RAVEN are beginning their reign as TAG CHAMPS. We also get an explosive, insane brawl between the GANGSTAS & PUBLIC ENEMY in the main event. We will continue to do the other thumbing into Dave Meltzer’s newsletter as it happened in real-time to bring in CONTEXT and help us submerge ourselves completely back to 1995 to gather an understanding of what the wrestling world was like as ECW was continuing to expand into what we eventually saw it become.
