4.0 out of 5 stars ECW Lives!, 21 Aug. 2006
This review is from: ECW - One Night Stand 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
There were many who doubted the ability of the WWE to adequately promote an ECW show. Those who saw their poorly executed angle in 2001 involving ECW and WCW will remember Vince's reputation for burying talent that was not of his own making. The inclusion of the Raw and Smackdown rosters, supposedly poised to bring the show down seemed to many to be a confirmation that the aforementioned would be the case.

They were wrong.

By handing the creative reigns over the originator of what ECW was, the genuis of Paul Heymen, WWE were able to produce a product shockingly similar to the later days of ECW (circa 1999/2000).

Why did I give it four stars then? I was one of the few who knew this would be a good show due to the strong card however none of the matches were given the time they needed to truly develop consequently none of the matches were five-star classics.

That being said, what a show it was! A decent opener between Chris Jerico and Lance Storm, a disappointing match between Rey Mysterio and Psycosis (which the crowd hated) a good match between Benoit and Guererro (who was in a bad mood that night because he didn't want to lose), a good but way too short 3 way dance between Tajiri, Little Guido and Super crazy, a good match between Sabu and Phine, an outstanding match between Tanaka and Awesome and a great main event between the Dudley's and Tommy dreamer and Sandman.

All in all, a great show and an absolute must for any ECW fan. It also includes the best promo of Van Dam's career and entertaining commentary by JBL.
