Tag Team Match

The Bad Street Boys vs. Danny Doring & Roadkill

Joey Matthews & Danny Doring get things going with Doring pulling on the hair to take over. Doring sends Matthews face-first into the mat before bringing in Roadkill, then off to Christian York, who gets taken down by a running shoulder, but he comes back with some arm drags.

York counters a slingshot into the corner into a bouncing leg drop, then moments later, Road Roadkill pops up and slams The Bad Street Boys down. The Bad Street Boys stay on the monster, but Doring gets a hot tag and assists Roadkill with a Hart Attack to Matthews. Doring is sent over the top rope and comes down on his arm, followed by double suicide dives from The Bad Street Boys.

Back inside, and a double powerbomb drops Doring, but Matthews and York turn around into the springboard clothesline from Roadkill. Doring nails a top rope elbow, but York breaks it up with a top rope leg drop.

A middle rope backsplash gets a two-count for York, but Doring escapes a headlock and hits the double-arm DDT. There’s the hot tag to Roadkill, who cleans house and splashes both guys in the corner before the Buggy Bang for the win.

Winners: Danny Doering & Roadkill (7:14)

After the match Roadkill & Doring help The Bad Street Boys to their feet. However, Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger arrive with steel chairs to make a statement of their own. The heels clean house, leaving Danny Doring on his back in the ring as the last visual before the next match.

A charge goes badly for Money as he falls onto his partners, setting up a huge springboard flip dive from Kash, leaving the heels in a crumpled heap.

Back in the ring now, Money flips over the top rope into a clothesline for two before taking a breather with a chinlock. During the rest hold, Joel Gertner screams for Kid Kash to get up. Money spends a bit too much time swiveling his hips and gets rolled up for two. A running tornado DDT gets the same for Kash, but Money comes back with Electric Dreams but fails to cover after.

Kash nails something like a Whisper In The Wind for two before the high flyers trade pinfall attempts. There’s the Money Maker, but Elektra distracts the referee, allowing Dinero to take Kash down. A double suplex has Kash in trouble, and Hamrick adds a top rope leg drop for two. Money gets crotched on top but still manages to try a super bomb, only to have Kash reverse into a hurricanrana for the win.

Winner: Kid Kash (9:39)

After the match, Hot Commodity beats on Kash until Spike Dudley tries to make a save. They go after his leg, and put him in a Figure 4, but Sandman arrives for the real save. Elektra tries to seduce him but The Sandman pours beer on her chest and shoves Gertner’s face onto the beer.

Mahoney bites at the cut and whips him through another barricade, right under the announcers’ area. DeVito flips off the announcers, for no apparent reason, before moonsaulting off a ledge. Angel & Willy show up next to them, with Chilly taking a powerbomb onto some chairs. DeVito takes Mahoney back to the ring for a dropkick, but makes the mistake of going after his head.

Chairs are brought in, and Corino gets in a quick shot to the head to take over as Anderson is busted open, and a kick to the face makes things worse. Anderson nails Corino with the chair to take over, drawing some blood from Corino. Anderson wedges a chair in the corner, and sends Corino arm first into the steel to give him a target.

Jerry Lynn vs Justin Credible (c)
– ECW World Heavyweight Championship

Match starts off with they do some mat wrestling before Jerry Lynn hits a armdrag & Credible out to the floor for an argument with a fan. Back in and they trade chops with Lynn getting the better of it. Neither guy can hit their finisher so Lynn settles for a middle rope bulldog and a headlock.

Credible is sent to the floor again for Lynn’s big dive off the top but he might have hurt his elbow. Back in and a swinging Boss Man Slam from Credible puts both guys down again. We get a chair brought in for the drop toehold onto its back to give Credible two. A sitout powerbomb out of the corner onto the chair gets the same and the fight heads up the aisle. Justin hammers away by the barricade and it’s back inside the ring.

Lynn grabs a DDT to plant Credible on the chair for a delayed two. Credible comes back with a front facelock as the fans get on his nerves. He stops and grabs a mic to talk trash about Lynn and Minneapolis, causing the fans to throw in a bunch of beer cups. Back to the front face lock before they trade near falls for two each until Credible hits that running release DDT to take over.

Lynn kicks the chair into Credible’s face to get a breather but gets sent to the apron, only to come back with a jumping leg to the back of Credible’s head, driving him throat-first across the middle rope. A guillotine leg drop gets two for Lynn, and it’s table time. Credible gets laid on the table, but Francine offers a distraction to allow Credible to slam Lynn through the table. A sunset bomb out of the corner gets two for Credible, but he walks into the cradle piledriver for another near fall.

That’s Incredible gives Credible a two-count, and the fans are right back into this. Credible superkicks the referee down by mistake, but Lynn rolls him up. The same referee that Joey Styles said gave a fast count on Rob Van Dam comes in and counts two but stops and waves his finger at Lynn.

An ECW World Heavyweight Title shot to the head gets a fast two on Lynn, and the crooked referee nails Lynn in the head. That’s Incredible gets two more as New Jack comes out for the save. The crooked referee and Lynn counters That’s Incredible into a cradle tombstone gets the win.

Winner: AND NEW ECW World Heavyweight Champion: Jerry Lynn (19:36) (NEW CHAMPION!!!)
