• OLD SCHOOL VIDEO HISTORY (January 13, 2001) – The Last ECW Event Ever
On this day in 2001, Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling promotion hosted its last event ever, before closing its doors and being sold to Vince McMahon.
While a lot of big names had already left ECW for WWF or WCW at that point in time, they still had a few ECW Veterans on the card that night, like The Sandman & Tommy Dreamer.
Here’s the card:
– Prodigy Tom Marquez vs. Nova
– Christian York & Joey Matthews vs. Hot Commodity
– Jack Victory vs. C.W. Anderson
– Yoshihiro Tajiri vs. Super Crazy
– ECW World Title: Rhino vs. Spike Dudley
– Danny Doring & Tommy Dreamer vs. FBI
– Justin Credible vs. The Sandman
– Impromptu rematch: Justin Credible vs. The Sandman
– All the wrestlers say goodbye in the ring
• Possible Spoiler On Who’ll Eliminate Brock Lesnar From The Royal Rumble 2020 Match
As we all know by now, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is going to be the #1 entrant in the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match.
According to Tom Colohue, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez could end up being the man to eliminate Lesnar from the Rumble:
“What’s most likely to happen that it’s going to be Cain Velasquez. But we are where we are with that one.
The initial plan was for the Royal Rumble to feature another Cain Velasquez match or at least, Cain Velasquez would still be competing with Lesnar at some point.
There was a little bit of loss of faith in Velasquez, so that could be at play here.”
Velasquez eliminating Lesnar could make sense given how WWE is scheduled to do a Saudi Arabia PPV on February 20, and it’s very much possible that WWE could be planning a rematch between Lesnar & Velasquez for the WWE Championship at that event.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
