4.0 out of 5 stars ECW Cyberslam '99, 28 Jun. 2008
By 
This review is from: Extreme Championship Wrestling: Cyberslam 99 [DVD] (DVD)
Jerry Lynn vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri - This show took place shortly after the Living Dangerously pay-per-view where Jerry Lynn had his classic with RVD, so the ECW fans finally realise how good he is and give him a great reaction. Good match, with some nice technical and aerial wrestling. (***)

Super Nova vs. Rod Price - Rod Price looks like your stereotypical wrestling heel, although i admit his wrestling is slightly better than you might expect. There is a cut made from this match for no apparent reason. Not awful. (1/2*)

Super Crazy vs. El Merco De La Merced - This match starts off with the two wrestlers showing off their lucha libre skills, much to the delight of the ECW Arena crowd. As the match continues, they seem to run out of ideas and there are a few awkward moments. But still a decent match. (**1/2)

Taka Michinoku vs. Papi Chulo - This was going to be difficult as the fans had already seen a couple of high-flying matches on the show and they had a tough act to follow. They never really managed it. Good in places but a letdown given the talent involved. (**)

Rob Van Dam vs. Too Cold Scorpio - Flash Funk makes another one of his random returns to ECW to face RVD in a match that marks one year of RVD being ECW Television Champion. This was a good match with some nice high-flying and innovative spots. The only problem is that TCS seems to spend a good portion of the match stalling, something he does a lot in longer matches. Good match though, better than the one they had at Living Dangerously the year before. (***)

ECW Title Match: Taz vs. Chris Candido - This was an FTW rules match which means falls count anywhere in the building. That gave the wrestlers a good excuse to brawl throughout the crowd, which is fine, but they should save that for the hardcore guys as these two have good chemistry in the ring. The match ends with Chris Candido suffering a worked injury after a slightly botched finish. Good match. (***)

Shane Douglas (with francine) vs. Justin Credible (with jason & Jazz) - This was the match of the night and took me by suprise. Shane Douglas gave a great promo before the match that got the crowd fired up and injected some fire, passion and energy into this match. They showed great intensity, used blood and hardcore spots to a good effect and worked really hard. Great performances from both men. (****)

Wargames Steel Cage Match: Mustafa, Buh Buh Ray & D-Von Dudley vs. New Jack, Axl Rotten & Balls Mahoney - This was a good, bloody violent match that finished off the show well. Matches like this work better if they stand out on a show, which it does here as it surrounded by high-flying action and old-school brawling in the last match. Not the greatest ECW style match but satisfying. (***)
