Well done. Wrestlers deserve a lot more respect than they actually get, imho.

Fair play, Hardcore Justice was pretty good.

It was ALL ecw originals, which was good, and it was obvious the guys had made an effort to get in shape. All the matches were good, and it was honestly just fun.

It's terrifying to still see Sabu taking a buckets worth of punishment though, considering he must be getting on by now. He can still fly as well :lol:

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to disagree sadly! I thought the event was awful tbh (and it pains me to say that!), Scorpio was in great shape but his performance was more like a showcase in the hope Dixie gives him a job instead of a fluid match.
The Team 3d brawl was really slow paced and not as violent as anything they've done in ecw or any of Team 3d's brawls in tna.
Raven vs Dreamer was predicitable, there's only so many times I can watch Dreamer get butchered before making a comeback but ultimatley losing in a messy way.
And the less said about the dance off, fake meanie, trademark avoidances (which were amusing at times) the better.

For me, the One Night Stand events were far better and this didn't do ecw justice sadly.
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

The first One Night Stand was brilliant, i actually bought it , the unedited version is so intense i honestly believe if they had , had Cena beat RVD there would have been a riot :o

And props to Cena , it is one of the best matches he has ever done

Yup, I was going to buy it but found out the actual ppv version is way better, the fans are apeshit especially when that big blackman throws Cena's shirt back at him and talks smack to him :D

Plus Funk and Dreamer vs Edge and Foley is brutal as fuuk too!

I saw that one. Fair play to Cena for going along with it and trying something a bit different.

Cena actually says in the commentary it was the first time he ever felt truly scared for his well being at an event , and the hatred in that arena was seriously real , there was a sign on the top floor that said if Cena wins we riot :lol:
