Rob Van Dam(c) VS Jerry Lynn.
(This match is from Hardcore Heaven 99 and is widely considered one of their best matches.Personally I think their match 2 months previous to this at Living Dangerously 99 was better but this is still a brutal,hard hitting match involving Lynn being legitimately knocked unconscious,2 five star frog splashes,a sunset flip powerbomb through a table and tons more.Any RVD,JL or ECW fan needs to see this)*****
2)ECW WORLD TITLE:
Mike Awesome(c) VS Masato Tanaka.
(Another hardcore war.This is from November 2 Remember 99 and was a tremendous match.How could a Awesome-Tanaka match not be brilliant.Their matches from Heatwave 98,Anarchy Rulz 99 and in FMW are known as classics.In this match we see an Awesome Bomb from the apron through a table,a superplex through a table,a vicious german suplex by Awesome and all 3 of Tanaka's finishing moves-Roaring Elbow,Diamond Dust and a Tornado DDT onto 2 chairs.An excellent non stop match)*****
3)ECW WORLD TITLE-BARBED WIRE MATCH:
The Sandman(c) VS Raven.
(This was the meaning of extreme,not much wrestling but lots of barbed wire,blood and tables.The match is from Holiday Hell 96 and finally brought the Sandman-Raven war to a head.Plenty of nasty bumps by both men.A few botched spots near the end take away from this match slightly but hardcore ECW fans will love this hard to find match from one of the bloodiest feuds ever in ECW)****
4)TAG TEAM TITLES:
Dudley Boys(c) VS Balls Mahoney & Spike Dudley.
(A bloody match from one of ECW's early TNN shows in summer 99.Read more ›
The next match is the Awesome/Tanaka match from November to Remember '99 which is a great match with lots of sick chairshots and powerbombs through tables. This is one of the only two highlights from November to Remember and is a very good choice for this video.(****)
After that is the No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match between Raven and Sandman for the ECW world title. These two hardcore brawlers are caught in their prime and it shows. Raven and Sandy allow themselves to take a tremendous amount of punishment and put forth a great effort(****).
Dudleys vs Spike and Balls Mahoney is up next and they fight up and down the arena in a good brawl using foreign objects to hit eachother with. The match ending powerbomb through two flaming tables is insane and puts a great end to a good brawl.(***1/2).
The Eliminators v Dr Death and Terry Gordy is a pasable match but is probably on the tape only for the most deathdefying elbow drop in wrestling history. The Eliminators, one of the best combinations in wrestling history must have been having a bad day but this match is worth seeing for the elbow drop alone.Read more ›
This is a great ECW Dvd. The perfect mixture of Hardcore and Technical Wrestling action. However I must say that the matches go downhill towards the end of the DVD. The Highlights are, The RVD vs Jerry Lynn match which is great but not as good as their match from the last ECW ppv (Guilty as Charged 2001. Also Mike Awsome has a great hard hitting match.
Even though it is a good DVD id recomend ECW - Path of Destruction more than this one.
But these are the only two decent matches on the tape. Barb wire match between Sandman, Raven was average. Eliminators vs Bam Bam Terry Gordy was average.I would recommend any fan to buy it. It is a good tape apart for a few crap matches.Buy it.
