There’s an even more barren crowd than usual at the IWA warehouse tonight. One member of the audience takes exception to Smooth’s pink top questioning “Don’t you make enough money to buy a different motherf*cking shirt?” which leads to Paul E. calling him a fat motherf*cker and telling him to shut up. For most fans that would be enough for them to keep quiet and sit back down, not this guy though who suggests to Smooth to step outside so he can whip his ass. Paul E.’s response to that is how about he f*cks him in the ass instead, which gets plenty of laughter from the few dozen in attendance. This guy won’t stop and he’s now on about how much money he earns compared to the $25 a night that Smooth makes from wrestling. When he throws a five dollar bill at him saying that’s all he’s worth, both Hero and Smooth rush out the ring to grab it, adding fuel to the fire of all the talk you here about Ian Rotten’s pay offs! He continues to get on Paul E.’s case, to the point Hero just takes a seat in the corner and leaves the pair of them to it. After telling Smooth to “suck his dick right now”, he calls this goon’s bluff, hopping out the ring and walking to the dressing room whilst gesturing for him to follow him. Surprisingly he does exactly that, until getting about a foot from the doorway and thinking better of it. Despite being made to look a prize fool he won’t stop his heckling and Smooth gets a “shut the f*ck up!” chant going. At last we’re underway and Hero drops Paul E. with a stiff lariat. Bloody hell, he’s now turned his attention to Hero calling him “Superman”. Can Ian not do us all a favour and kick him out? Shoulder charge to the mid-section followed by a snap suplex for a two. Hero telegraphs the backdrop attempt and Paul E. counters with a ‘Diamond Cutter’. Whip to the corner is reversed, but Smooth has the tip up scouted, not falling for it, and when Hero lands he kicks him between the legs. Bronco buster, making sure to rub his crotch in Hero’s face, which gets more derogatory remarks from our redneck irritant. Top rope frankensteiner. Springboard crossbody by Smooth, however Hero catches and then dumps him with a fallaway slam. Full nelson sit out slam and Paul E. kicks out of the lateral press. Hero heads upstairs and Smooth just grabs the official, pulls him over to the ropes and says “look at that kid there, he’s jerking off”. With the ref distracted, Smooth’s new bodyguard, 411 (yes!), jumps into the ring and plants Hero with a chokeslam. Paul E. makes the cover and thanks 411 for his help with a smacker.
Nothing to see here, unless you want to watch how not to behave at a wrestling event, how to be an obnoxious twat and how to ruin the enjoyment of everyone else. This guys has his ’15 seconds’ at the beginning and then doesn’t stop with the comments all the way through; he’s an utter nightmare. Of all the ECW characters to rip off in 2001 you choose 911? One for the Hero completists only.
