The Real Men In Black...Caution!

What is the theory that the Men In Black are of supernatural origin?

 This is actually a very popular theory among a number of researchers of not just UFOs, but also within esoteric and paranormal research circles, too. In my The Real Men in Black book, I include cases where people had MIB experiences after using Ouija Boards, and also witnesses to the Men in Black who had poltergeist activity in their homes directly after their encounters. This seems to clearly imply that at least some MIB are much weirder than many people suspect.

Wrestling's Hottest Territory... Memphis Heat!


Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ Now on Itunes

This great film may have missed your periscope in 2011!

Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ has been picked up for distribution on Itunes. Memphis Heat documents the wild and wooly history of Memphis and Mid-South professional wrestling. From the carnival days of cult hero Sputnik Monroe--the heel who integrated the Memphis wrestling audience before the Civil Rights movement--to masked men, midgets, tag teams, female wrestlers, and the rise of bad-guy heel Jerry "the King" Lawler and Jimmy “Mouth of the South” Hart in the 1970s, Memphis Heat delves into a time-forgotten, pre-cable tv world where almost anything happened inside and outside of the wrestling ring and no holds were barred!

Here’s what the critics are saying about Memphis Heat!

ESPN/Grantland: "One of the best films of the genre!”

Varied Celluloid: “It’s the perfect film!”

Pro Wrestling Torch: “It’s the best, most entertaining pro wrestling documentary I have ever seen.”

Wrestlezone: “Memphis Heat is a must see.”

Surrender to the Void: “An extraordinary yet entertaining documentary.”

Camel Clutch Blog: “I can’t ever recall watching a documentary and waking up the next day and wanting to watch it again until Memphis Heat.”

Houston Sports Zone: “This documentary is a must watch of any wrestling fan.”

Jim Ross: “Awesome!”

Cinema Suicide: “Never boring, always on point, Memphis Heat is a love letter to sports entertainment.”

Ordering Info: www.memphis-heat.com


Michael Joy, Horrornews.net – “You can walk into viewing this DVD knowing a little about wrestling or a lot about wrestling, but either way you are going leave richer for the experience. I know a ton about wrestling and I still learned stuff from watching Memphis Heat that I had no idea about.”

UFO ISSUES NOT ADDRESSED AT THE STATE OF THE UNION
White House Press Association has blocked any and all questions to President Obama regarding Extraterrestrials and UFO’s. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs seems to be in the front end of this most recent cover-up attempt.
They’ve created a internal “self-censorship” operation that is designed to allow NO questions regarding Extraterrestrial or UFO issues to ever reach the United States President or the Presidential Press Secretary in the press briefing room or in any Presidential press conference.
And don’t be gullible and think that our Government is ONLY blocking UFO questions; there are many issues that they don’t want to address. I need to express kudo’s to former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura and his TruTV television show, “Conspiracy Theory” that has been the most truthful show in the media in a long, long time.
He has a legit background in the government and knows first hand of the corruption that even reaches the upper echelon, corruption at a very scary level. I’d like to publically invite Jesse Ventura to reach out to the “horror fans” which are some of the most loyal fans in the world, and there’s a lot of us, and be heard here at Horrornews.net and Unexplained Confidential.
Coming THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 7PM – There will be a LECTURE / SIGNING with RICHARD M. DOLAN on his book, “UFO’S AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE”.
Location : Germ Books + Gallery, LLC., 2005 Frankford Avenue (between Norris and Susquehanna
next to Rocket Cat Café), Fishtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
In 2000, Richard published UFOS AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE: AN UNCLASSIFIED HISTORY, 1941-1973 (republished in 2002 with the subtitle CHRONOLOGY OF A COVER-UP, 1941-1973).
Unexplained Confidential: UFO issues and updates richard m dolan
This 500-page history provides clear detail on the major UFO cases of the early Cold War era, the attitudes and policies toward UFOs by the military and intelligence community, and the fascinating development of the citizen movements to end UFO secrecy.
In 2009, Richard completed Volume Two of his historical study, subtitled THE COVER-UP EXPOSED, 1973-1991. In this 638-page follow up volume, he provides not only incredible detail and clarity to the key UFO events of that era – he also provides a sophisticated analysis of the politics concerning UFOs – in other words, the cover-up. In addition, he provides a first-ever true history of UFO research itself: a genuine history of ufology.
With over 1,000 citations and 1,400 index entries, this second volume is a landmark achievement in the field of UFO research, written in a clear and engaging style designed for newcomers and experienced researchers alike.
Richard has done a great deal of television work, having appeared on many documentaries and shows for the History Channel, Sci Fi Channel, CNN, BBC, and elsewhere. In 2006 he was host to a six-episode series for the Sci Fi Channel called SCIFI INVESTIGATES.
Unexplained Confidential: UFO issues and updates syfy
MSNBC recently raised the questions of, “Could aliens already be on Earth? “
Of course they are! They’ve been here for millions of years. The first intelligent life form to walk on our planet was not human, not at all. We’ve been seeing for years in the research community, from scrolls to cave sketches, very real indications that UFO’s and Extraterrestrials were here. Now, as much as our Government tries to deny it, science still tries to embrace it.
Things are not always what they seem. You think of aliens and you think of THE GREYS most likely, and think of “intelligent” life, but there’s more than that, isn’t there? If they’ve made contact with us already, and it would be simply to think that they didn’t, they would have left a “footprint”.
Oh, maybe not a physical footprint, like a three toe footprint in your backyard, but they definitely left something behind. Jill Tarter, the director of the SETI Institute’s Center for SETI Research, says that the idea of alien microbes have been discussed for awhile. If you think about it, it only makes sense. Just like human’s carry around bacteria and disease specific to humanity.
Our alien counterparts are sure to carry around alien bacteria and alien disease. Where might one find this “alien bacteria”? Some might say it’s hiding deep in the ocean, but I think we can look a little closer to home. There are tons of case studies done on alien abduction, and while the victims carry around mental evidence, I believe they carry around a bit more. In the true cases of alien abduction, there could be a physical exchange, a “footprint” left behind.
Humans may in fact walk around after these abductions as carriers of a new form of bacteria or virus, contracted by their alien abductors. It’s something to take a closer look at. Now I have my own take on the subject matter and my own opinions but if you would like to read the MSNBC article, click here

DIGITAL KILLED THE ALIEN STAR
A pioneer in the field, Frank Drake, conducted the very first organized search for alien radio signals back in 1960. His recent studies show that we’ve become a quieter planet. Earth used to generate mass amounts of loud noise into outer space. In our current society, technology has changed the way we send information. Digital cable has taken the place of Analogue television, which uses a far weaker signal, therefore its ability to reach outer space is limited. There are other factors too, like Satellite Radio and Television which also reduces intergalactic noise. What this means is, it reduces are chances for intelligent alien life to find our signal out there in outer space… that is, if they haven’t found us already?
MSNBC recently listed Eight UFO Cases that generate buzz.
(1)1897: Did an airship crash in Aurora, Texas? (2) 1947: The ‘flying saucer’ sighting (3) 1947: The Roswell incident (4) 1952: UFO buzz hits Washington (5) 1967: Malmstrom missile site shuts down (6) 1980: A diamond in the sky (7) 2008: Did fighter jets chase Texas UFOs? (8) 2009: blazing pinwheel that appeared in Norwegian skies

There are millions of UFO stories out there but here is just one. January 19th, 2010, 5:39pm I just got done work and I was driving down Greentree Road in Marlton, New Jersey.
I’m wondering if anyone else saw this, but regardless I had really never seen anything like it before. It was in the distance a couple miles out and it looked like white fire just falling from the sky leaving a long trail behind it. It was dark out, so it very visible just because of how bright it was.
If you are familiar with the area, I was on Greentree Road approaching Rt. 73 and the object was to my left right over the AMC Marlton 8 movie theatre, but more in distance. It reminded me a firework falling but this seemed thicker.
Was it a UFO? It dropped straight down from the sky and it wasn’t visible very long, maybe 1 or 2 seconds. I assume what I saw was a falling star but I had never really seen one before, so I can’t say for sure. Anyway, I thought it was worth mentioning, you know, especially since I write this column.
I’m not sure that would really be considered a movie theatre experience, but I did witness it over top a movie theatre. I thought I’d put this question out there to my Horrornews friends, “What is YOUR most memorable movie theater experience going to see a horror movie?” – Or those of who dare to answer a much more important question, “Have you ever seen a UFO?” email me your stories.
There is so many cool things coming soon. I have some amazing new interviews currently over in our Exclusive Horrornews Interview section and more to come.
If you are in the horror community and would like to be featured on Horrornews, don’t hesitate, just drop me a line. Plus, I’m always on the look out to talk to people in the paranormal realm. I don’t want to give anything away, but I have a MAJOR announcement that I will make here on Unexplained Confidential in the coming weeks. This is going to be BIG!
Later F’N’ Later,

Chernobyl Diaries - "Someone Has To Know We're Out Here" Clip



http://chernobyldiaries.warnerbros.com/
http://www.facebook.com/chernobyldiaries
"Chernobyl Diaries" is an original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, "Paranormal Activity." The film follows a group of six young tourists who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an "extreme tour" guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone...

Director: Jay Roach
Writers: Screenplay by Chris Henchy & Shawn Harwell
Story by Adam McKay & Chris Henchy & Shawn Harwell
Producers: Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jay Roach, Zach Galifianakis
Executive Producers: Amy Sayres, Jon Poll, Chris Henchy
Cast: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Katherine LaNasa, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, Brian Cox

Comedy. When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors' support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family's political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach that takes today's political circus to its logical next level. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there's room to dig a whole lot deeper.

DEAD afterlife PRESS RELEASE

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release

‘DEAD afterlife’ is a brilliant fresh take on zombie movies

Gloucester Hts, NJ – May 18th, 2012 – Michael Joy is an up and coming screenwriter who just might have found a way to re-define the zombie movie.  The market has been oversaturated with zombie movies for the past couple of years, but the genre has never seen anything like “DEAD afterlife”.   Here is the logline that a making industry professionals turn their collective heads and take notice -  “The ghost of Donald Conlee finds himself attending his own funeral only to be surprised that his zombie counterpart is eating all his guests. Now, it’s up to Donald’s ghost to figure out how to get Donald’s undead body back into his grave.”

Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies) said, “My honest opinion on the logline is (and this is being honest) it is f*cking brilliant. A ghost watching his undead body eat funeral guests? Oh my God! Have ghosts and zombies have ever been mixed? It expands both genres. It is a metaphor too.” 

There are other comments and details about the “DEAD afterlife” logline here -

Synopsis :
On the eve of one of the most important medical breakthroughs in history,  Terranova Pharmaceutical representative Donald Conlee is found dead in his New Jersey home.  His miracle drug “Awake” was supposed to be a dream come true in the field of brain trauma.  Instead, Donald Conlee finds himself dead and awake during his own funeral  after being given his own experimental drug.   In a supernatural turn of events, it’s up to the ghost of Donald Conlee to put his own undead body back into the ground,  in order for his soul to gain entrance into Heaven.   Can the afterlife defeat the living dead? 

There is an Indiegogo funding campaign that has been started to get this project off the ground.   More details here -

Death Kotegashi Interview / Hardcore Wrestling International


Who is Death Kotegashi?  Death Kotegashi is HWI’s version of Kevin Sullivan.  He is the ultimate heel.  There is nothing compassionate about Death.  He has no redeeming qualities.  Just like Ricky Steamboat never played heel during his career, you really can’t see Death playing a face can you?  He would take the knife right out of your hand and then stab you in the back with it.  And he doesn’t need a reason to do it.  He would do it just because he could.  Remember the Dark Knight when the Joker tells Harvey Dent he is an Agent of Chaos?  That is exactly who Death is.  He is an Agent of Chaos. 



What is your most memorable match in HWI history?  Most memorable match in HWI history was a match with Sensei Michael Parisi at Cooper River, where unfortunately, camera issues prevented the match from being taped.  Flow of the match was crisp.  It started on the island at Cooper River and then crossed over the river and match turned into an all out brawl.  Part of me wishes the match was taped to see just how memorable it really was.  But part of me likes the fact those memories are confined to that of Parisi and myself.  Most memorable match caught ‘on camera’ was also with Parisi at Camden County College, the match in which he forced Death to say ‘mattai’ which was a direct rip off of the movie Bloodsport.  Match was very submission based and physical.  It was also the first match back for Parisi following his arm injury, which is a nice piece of trivia.  Kind of cool I was his first match back. 



What is your favorite finishing maneuver?  I loved how HWI really put over the Asiatic Spike, which of course we called the Singapore Spike.  HWI really did a nice job of putting that move over as something special.  I was always a big fan of the Kenta Kobashi / Cactus Jack double arm DDT which I always incorporated into my matches, almost as a set up to the Spike.  Outside of my character, I was a fan of the Sensei’s claw.  Being a mark for Barry Windham when he turned heel and joined the Horsemen, the claw was a favorite of mine.



Tell us about the creation of Evil Domain?  My character was not really fitting into the scene.  I was basically a Road Warriors rip off, which would have worked if we had kept the masks on.  But once I unmasked, I was the youngest wrestler on the roster and definitely the youngest looking.  I did not have the ‘bad’ look to me and really needed another direction.  Decker had the book at the time and he made the decision to turn me heel.  Joining Evil Domain gave my character a sense of mystery.  By joining forces with such evil characters as Mortimer Bates and the Demonic Savage, what I lacked for in evil looks on the outside gave my character a psychological evil presence and in time developed even more so after the break up of Evil Domain, in which my character really found his place.  Death really developed into a character that was very believable.  It all started with the creation of Evil Domain, which really has a cult following too it.  Because the time all 3 of us were in the group was really short when you come and think about it.  Each one of us was always back stabbing the other one, which again, also added to my character’s depth. 



You had great success in HWI,  but is there anything that you never got to accomplish?  Because of the behind the scenes drama, I was never able to experience the ‘Ultra Mega’ period of HWI when we had joint shows with the North Jersey wrestlers .  I did wrestle Rick Silver on 2 occasions for the RPWA.  Also wrestled Lord David under the mask as Demonic, which would turn out to be one of my last matches.  But I would have really liked to have been able to wrestle King Mike, the Slayer, and Hubie Volk, among others.  I would have handled the ‘behind the scenes’ drama towards the end of 1993 better so I could have been involved in the success of HWI during the years at the Monster Factory. 



Would you care to share your thoughts on your legendary feud with Demonic Savage?  It’s funny because I am asked about that feud more or less all the time, but I found the feud to be boring from a creative standpoint.  I really felt the feud with Demonic held my character back.  It worked as a feud in 1990 when Evil Domain was turning on one another all the time.  But by 1993 my character had really developed and another feud with Demonic just did not inspire me to do my best creative work.  I really believe that Death and Demonic work better when they play off other wrestlers instead of one another.  When I left, Demonic did his most creative work of his career versus Steve Ignorant.  Demonic and Death are great characters, but not as great when they are feuding with one another.  I felt my character was more effective when I was feuding with Bobby Decker and Michael Parisi.  So in essence, the feud with Demonic is a double edged sword for me.  It’s the feud that I am known for.  But it’s the feud in which I don’t feel I delivered my best work. 



You are known for your interviews as much as your wrestling,  so I have to ask - do you have a favorite interview?  Death of Bates was a solid piece of wrestling cinema but that was more an angle that an actual interview.  Probably the interview I remember the most fondly is the interview I did responding to Rob Feinstein and his crew.  Interview was well received enough that when Rob responded, he commented on it and wanted me to turn and join his crew against the HWI.  I also really enjoyed the skits I did at the Valley of Tie, introducing the match, doing the cut aways, and being lost following the match.  Those were really fun.  I also had a blast cutting interviews towards Skeet Slander, who was always my favorite wrestler out of the non HWI wrestlers.  I always enjoyed doing interviews and being the heel.  I can’t remember an interview I did not enjoy doing and I am sure I am glossing over a few that some other people found enjoyable. 





Do you have any interesting HWI behind the scenes memories?  Most of us know the behind the scenes memories of my exit, which really began with the HWI split that happened earlier in the year.  Those hard feelings were never really cured once we all joined back together.  My return was anything but memorable and I felt like so much changed that I really did not belong in the new HWI.  I remember being on the phone with King Mike, and him and David had an angle planned to bring Death into their promotion.  But the travel was never going to work out for me to do that.  Besides my drama, I remember when Thunder Messiah tried to buy the belt as he was becoming a miserable bas1ard that complained about his push.  I remember always being on the phone with the California crew.  And then when I would finally hang up, the phone would ring and it would be King Mike from Jersey City.  LOL.  I spent so many hours on the phone back then shooting the sh1t about wrestling. 



Why do you think HWI was so successful?  I think HWI was so successful because of how creative it was.  All of us were fans of the booking process.  We grew up fans of Memphis wrestling, Bill Watts’ UWF and the NWA.  We all loved our wrestling, but more so loved our angles and interviews, and those are what set HWI apart from the other promotions.  We could kick a55 in the ring too, but nobody even came close to us when it came to angles and interviews. 





Where is Death Kotegashi now?  Dead.  Didn’t you watch the last taping? LOL.  That was my idea, for the character to come full circle and be a wrestling character that ‘dies’ inside the Squared Circle.  And the real world of professional wrestling is so blah anymore, that me as a wrestling fan is dead as well.  I don’t care for the current product, and my kid watches it more so than I do and I get all the news second hand from him.

ORIGINAL ‘BLADE RUNNER’ SCREENWRITER HAMPTON FANCHER IN TALKS TO PEN SEQUEL IDEA FOR DIRECTOR RIDLEY SCOTT AND ALCON ENTERTAINMENT. 

LOS ANGELES, CA, MAY 16, 2012—Hampton Fancher is in talks to reunite with his “Blade Runner” director Ridley Scott to develop the idea for the original screenplay for the Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free, and Bud Yorkin produced follow up to the ground-breaking 1982 science fiction classic, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

 The filmmakers are also revealing for the first time that the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original. The filmmakers would reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded.

The three-time Oscar-nominated Scott and his “Blade Runner” collaborator Fancher originally conceived of their 1982 classic as the first in a series of films incorporating the themes and characters featured in Philip K. Dick's groundbreaking novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", from which “Blade Runner” was adapted. Circumstances, however, took Scott into other directions and the project never advanced.

Fancher, although a writer of fiction, was known primarily as an actor at the time Scott enlisted him to adapt the Dick novel for the screen. Fancher followed his “Blade Runner” success with the screenplays, “The Mighty Quinn” (1989) and “The Minus Man” (1999). He has continued to write fiction throughout his career.

Scott also will produce with Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove as well as Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.

 The original film, which has been singled out as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications, was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society.

State Kosove and Johnson: “It is a perfect opportunity to reunite Ridley with Hampton on this new project, one in fact inspired by their own personal collaboration, a classic of cinema if there ever was one.”

Released by Warner Bros. almost 30 years ago, "Blade Runner" was adapted by Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's groundbreaking novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and directed by Scott following his landmark “Alien.” The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction). Following the filming of “Blade Runner,” the first of Philip K. Dick’s works to be adapted into a film, many other of Dick’s works were likewise adapted, including “Total Recall,” “A Scanner Darkly,” “Minority Report,” “Paycheck,” and the recent “The Adjustment Bureau,” among others.

Smith, the Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FedEx.

Ganster Squad Trailer





GANGSTER SQUAD 
Coming Soon / Undated

  (Warner Bros. Pictures/Village Roadshow Pictures)

Director: Ruben Fleischer  

Writers: Screenplay by Will Beall Based on the book Gangster Squad by Paul Lieberman  

Producers: Dan Lin, Kevin McCormick, Michael Tadross Executive Producers: Paul Lieberman, Ruben Fleisher, Bruce Berman  

Cast: Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone, Sean Penn

 Drama. Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. "Gangster Squad" is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD's efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

Star Wars Yoda Size Matters Not Canvas Giclee Print

:

  • Awesome and incredible Star Wars canvas giclee print!
  • Hand-numbered artwork signed by the artist!
  • Limited to just 125 pieces worldwide!
Is there anything better than sitting and relaxing in the swamps of Dagobah upon the nice log of a fallen tree? The great Jedi Master Yoda doesn't think so. And if it's good enough for Yoda, then it's darn well good enough for you, con tarn it! How do you think Yoda got to be such an awesome and powerful Jedi Master in the first place, hmmm? Meditation, it was. Or so Yoda would tell you if he were still here, may he rest in peace. Just follow Yoda's example and you won't be headed in the wrong direction. This 24-inch by 18-inch canvas giclee print would look incredible hung up on your wall. Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay") is an invented name for the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing. The word was coined to distinguish commonly known industrial "Iris proofs" from the fine-art prints artists were producing on the same printers. The name has since come to mean any high-quality, ink-jet print, and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such. In the past few years, the word (as a fine-art term) has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant "archival" inks and the inkjet printers that use them. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.

REWIND: REBOOK: EXTREME REUNION


I think this was a better alternative.  I booked Extreme Reunion and basically used the same people they had to work with.  I think I did a better job.

Start the show:





Shane Douglas coming out and reporting on the situation with Sabu being taken to the hospital before the show.  Shane Douglas says that he has a replacement opponent in mind when Raven’s music hits with Raven coming down to the ring with his new Flock (including Cripple H).  Raven asks Shane why he even booked a reunion show, because reunions are for f**s and morons!   Raven’s new Flock attacked Shane.  Raven chimes in and takes Shane out with an EvenFlo DDT on a chair.   Raven in control of the mic continues his Anti-ECW promo!  





Pitbull’s music! Gary Wolfe comes down to make the save.   Shane rolls out to the floor and the Raven vs Pitbull match begins.  Raven keeps trying to escape the match, so Pitbull grabs his “Dog Collar” and attaches it to his neck and Raven’s neck.  Now, Raven can’t escape.   Pitbull beats on Raven for awhile until finally his Flock interfere to cost Pitbull the match.  Unnamed muscle guy in Flock hits sitdown slam on Pitbull and Raven crawls over to get the pinfall.  During the entire match, Shane Douglas has been laid out at ringside.  Afterwards, Shane is back up and grabs a chair.  He goes after Raven, swings and missed.  Raven & The Flock retreat.  Shane Douglas stands  in the ring with the chair waiving Raven to come back, when Raven doesn’t, Shane heads toward the back with chair in hand.





CW Anderson vs Al Snow w/Head


Before the match, they give away hundreds of “heads” to the crowd.   Snow comes out with his “head” and they do the gimmick.   The match is back and forth, nothing too extreme, and Al Snow pins Anderson with Wheelbarrow Suplex.  After the match, this “strange” music plays and figure with a hooded cloak appears from the back and slowly walks toward the ring.  After he enters the ring, he unhoods, and it’s KEVIN SULLIVAN!! Sullivan immediately throws powder in CW Anderson face and Anderson drops to the ground.  Sullivan pulls and “the spike” and goes after Al Snow.   Sullivan digs the spike in Snow’s head drawing blood. Sullivan turns to the helpless “head”.    He takes the spike and drives in right through “head”.   Sullivan pulls out and cloth bag and put it over the face of CW Anderson and ties it off.   Sullvain leads Anderson, who now seems to be under Sullivan’s control, to the back.  When Al Snow gets up with his face full of blood, he looks over and finds “head” with the spike sticking out.  Al Snow acts crushed.





Axl Rotten vs Balls Mahoney


This is just a stiff chair-fest back and forth, until the match is interrupted by CZW wrestlers “Philly’s Most Wanted” who show up in the crowd and create a disturbance. The match stops dead and Balls & Axl invite them inside the ring. Atlas Security holds them off at the guardrail making sure that they don’t come over.  Balls & Axl grab the mic and say if you won’t let them IN then we are coming OUT!   Axl & Balls climb over the guardrail and begin to brawl in the crowd with Philly’s Most Wanted.   They go all over the building.  Balls & Axl toss Philly’s Most Wanted out the front door and they return to inside the ring.  Balls & Axl look at each other and look at the crowd and continue their match.  A couple more well placed chair shots back and forth, and Balls is able to put away Axl and get the pinfall.   After the match, they are friends again.








Jerry Lynn vs Devon Storm


This is just good hard wrestling.  Devon is the replacement for Justin Credible.  The wrestling should speak for itself here, so I’m not going to overbook this with angles.   Jerry Lynn pins Devon Storm with a good old fashion piledriver.  In real life, this was the best match on the show.








FBI vs BWO


Now, it’s time for some comic relief.  Special guest ring announcer is Joel Gertner who provides a super long introduction for both teams.  Here is what I would ADD to this match.  I would introduce “Blue Girl” the new valet for the Blue World Order.  On the other side,  I would introduce the “Hot Blooded Italian Princess”.  At some point during the match… cat fight!    The finish has Stevie Richards hit the “Stevie kick” on Little Guido for the pinfall win!



Main Event


Todd Gordon returns… and talks about ECW and the fans and how Extreme is in his blood..bla bla bla!  Todd announces the Special guest referee for the Main Event – Bill Alfonzo!  Next, Shane Douglas music hits and then his tag team partner’s music, Too Cold Scorpio!    Douglas challenges Raven & one of his Flock to come down to the ring for a fight!  Raven’s music plays but nothing.   Shane & Scorpio wait.  The Gangstas Music hit!





Shane Douglas & Too Cold Scorpio vs New Jack & Mustafa


The Gangstas bring down a trash can full of weapons.  Things get crazy inside and out!   Bill Alfonzo blows his whistle while refereeing.   After everyone uses up the weapons,  New Jack & Too Cold exchange some false finishes before they take the brawl to the crowd.  While Douglas brawls with Mustafa, there’s a ref bump.  Alfonzo down.   Douglas puts the sleeper hold on Mustafa and puts him out but there’s no referee.  Now, Raven shows up and for the second time of the night hits Douglas with the Evenflo DDT on a chair, taking Shane out.  Raven puts Mustafa’s arm over Shane and shakes Alfonzo before he leaves again.   Alfonzo with a slow count…one… two…thr…. Shane kicks out.   Meanwhile, New Jack has laid out Too Cold on the other end of the armory.  Raven is gone.    New Jack comes back inside the ring. The Gangsta’s are now double teaming Shane.   Todd Gordon throws in a white towel and steps inside the ring and puts himself in harm’s way blocking The Gangstas from getting to Shane Douglas.   It’s announced The Gangstas are the winners but that’s not good enough for New Jack.  Mustafa grabs hold of Gordon and New Jack pulls out a box cutter and acts like he’s going to cut Gordon.  Then… Enter Sandman starts playing.  They release Gordon, who runs out of the ring.   The Gangstas wait for the arrival of The Sandman.   The Sandman comes down with 2 canes.   He tosses one to Todd Gordon.  The Sandman and Todd circle the ring.  They climb up to the apron,  Todd tosses his can to Shane Douglas. The Sandman enters and Shane Douglas gets up and they start caneing The Gangstas.  The Gangstas retreat but with their arms raised in victory.  Afterwards,  Too Cold Scorpio gets back to the ring and has a stare down with his former tag partner, The Sandman.    You know what’s next.   We end the show with a dance off between Too Cold Scorpio and The Sandman.   Then, all five – The Sandman, Too Cold Scorpio, Todd Gordon, Bill Alfonzo and Shane Douglas drink a few beers inside the ring to end the show.
