Talk about it here.

Not a great match. Not the best ECW match of the decade. But it is an intricately booked, great collection of storyline payoffs disguised as a match, so I can see why it's been such a loved match over the years. Plus, it's an ECW match with an ether rag!

I know a lot of people don't think Levy's ECW stuff has held up, but I love hearing him talk about it. He put so much thought into this crap. In the end, however, I think the Raven character went too far away from his stooging/heeling strength. He actually has talked about the fact he realized that and that's why he used Stevie/Meanie to sort of represent that side of him while he was Raven.

Agreed. Think what you want about Scott Levy, but he's an old-school guy who just *loves* wrestling and the absurdity and the fun of it. I find his enthousiasm communicative.

I do enjoy how much credit Levy takes for his matches. I remember being in Korakuen Hall before an ECW joint card with a Japanese company and watch & listen to Paul going over the matches with the guys at length.
Yes, Levy put a lot of thought into his shit. So did Paul... a hell of a lot. And hell, I'm not even someone who likes Paul at all.

This might have been slightly overbooked but man was it fun. You have botched piledrivers, Bill Alfonso getting his to a big pop, Beulah/Francine catfight and Dreamer crying. What more do you want from ECW/

This was just magnificently booked and a great representative of what ECW was at this time with many of the storylines coming to a head. I've seen seen some debate over this match in the past with some people claiming it to be the best in ECW history. I think that it's definitely not the best from a workrate standpoint, but it may be the best booked segment that ECW ever did.
