[1996-11-05-ECW-TV] Pulp Fiction

Recommended Posts

What was cool at the beginning of the year is getting old as a concept by this point.

 

That said, these guys ate their Wheaties. Raven does good promo for once. Saturn actually does the best promo I've ever seen from him too. So does New Jack! And Brian Lee (who probably should have been a bigger star).

 

Shane Douglas still takes forever to make his point, and says Tommy Dreamer's name about 600 times, but what else is new?

 

The segment wraps up with Dreamer making a phone call to the Double Cross Ranch.

I loved the Pulp Fiction videos, it was a great way to wrap all the angles and promos at the same time in a cool video package. Much better than the hideous invisible camera backstage skits. The Double Cross Ranch phone call was great.

I refuse to believe that Gary Wolfe was previously known as "The Man Whose Neck Couldn't Be Broken." Not exactly "The Man Gravity Forgot." Raven sulks under a trashed ECW Arena reading Sandman--the graphic novel--and cuts a promo on Sandman--the wrestler. Clever. I have to differ on Saturn's promo--he does a gallant job of trying to keep it in kayfabe, but man do I recoil at promos talking about "Matches of the Year." I do love how the New England-raised-and-sounds-like-it Saturn calls them the "Gangsters," though. New Jack cuts a promo on both the Eliminators and Sabu/RVD, who will be facing each other for a shot at the Gangstas' belts. Back to Raven, who doesn't have the World title anymore but still has Tyler. More from Shane & Francine. Brian Lee cuts ANOTHER promo on Tommy Dreamer--good Lord, this is the feud that won't end. Shane Douglas looks like he's aged 10 years since re-joining the company. Evidenlty, reading between the lines, Terry Funk is on his way back in.

 

One of the longer Pulp Fictions, but this was short on comedy and long on hype for November to Remember.

Been a hater on Pulp Fiction but this was one of the better ones in recent memory. I especially really liked the Raven promo in around all of the chairs as he cut a promo with focus for once that didn't make him come across as incredibly whiny and petty.
