Anderson interrupts before the match begins and calls both in the ring a pussy. Lynn decides to make the match a 3 way dance. Opening brawl of this was fantastic with the crowd going apeshit and the action frantic and natural for a three way dance. The best moments involve a trashcan getting slung into all of the men. Corino blades of course and we go to break with them brawling away. Back from break and the action is inside the ring and the match loses a good bit of luster due to it not following a more conventional 3 way style. They do a longform pin sequence that gets too convoluted and contrived. Corino in particular is out of position at points of it. Credible comes in after a ref bump and he creates interference that ends up resulting in Corino getting pinned after the cane shot. That kind of deflates the match because CW aint winning the title. They do the Lynn vs Anderson segment quick as after some reversals, Lynn retains on a Cradle Piledriver. Good match that showcases ECW as again probably having some of the most consistent long form matches on tv in 2000. ***1/4(6.7)

  • GSR changed the title to [2000-10-22-ECW-Hardcore TV] Steve Corino vs Jerry Lynn vs C.W. Anderson (Three Way Dance)

Originally scheduled to be a one on one match, Steve Corino challenging for Jerry Lynn’s ECW World title, but C.W. Anderson interrupts before the bell and talks his way into the match (while he has nothing but respect for Jerry Lynn he can understand why he’d rather face a Corino than an Anderson cos’ not only is he the World Heavyweight champion, he’s also a pussy), Lynn deciding that it’s going to be an ‘impromptu’ Three Way Dance instead.  What is it with ECW and their ‘impromptu’ matches?  Corino gets clotheslined over the top rope to the outside and C.W. quickly joins him out there.  As the two trade punches on the floor Lynn wipes them out with a somersault senton.  We’re reminded that a ‘three way dance’ means that it’s elimination rules and the last man standing will be the World champion.  Corino and C.W. end up in the front row and Lynn sails over the barricade with a double clothesline.  They fight their way amongst the fans over to what looks like the concession’s table.  C.W. with the reversal, suplexing Lynn onto the table.  He’s launching garbage cans about with reckless abandon, even sticking one over the champion’s head.  Corino, who was wearing a band aid on his forehead, is already busted open, his blonde locks starting to turn red.  We take a break for some commercials and on our return Lynn is about to paint his face/chest with Corino’s blood, only for C.W. to superkick him before he can do so.  Anderson alternates his attack between the two as he stomps away on them.  Shoulder stunner for Lynn, single armed DDT on Corino, it looks like he’s hedging his bets and targeting the arm of both.  Seated armbar, although, naturally, even though this is elimination rules, rather than letting that play out and hope Corino submits, Lynn kicks him around the side of the head to break it up.  The champion hammers away on C.W., only having limited use of that one arm due to Anderson’s efforts of working it over.  Corino is now targeting the same arm, picking up where C.W. left off.  Sit-out powerbomb on Lynn.  C.W. fires a chair at Lynn, who ducks, and it takes out Corino instead.  Near falls galore with all sorts of reversals, cradles and backslides.  The three slug it out the middle of the ring until a Corino double Bionic elbow floors his two opponents.  Anderson dents a chair over Jack Victory’s head while Corino reverses the reversal of the ‘Old School Expulsion’ into a Northern Lights suplex.  Justin Credible is out and canes anyone in sight.  Lynn with the cradle piledriver on Corino and the number one contender is the first man eliminated.  C.W. waits for the champion to get back to his feet and lands the Ferris Wheel for a two count.  Joel Gertner gives us a rundown of previous ECW World title changes that occurred in Three Way Dances.  I think that was supposed to put over how much jeopardy the champion is in a match like this because, but I think it was more so they could mention Steve Austin was in ECW once which they tend to try and do at every opportunity.  History doesn’t repeat itself here though, Lynn blocking the spinebuster and hitting the cradle piledriver on C.W. for the win less than ninety seconds after he had sent Corino packing.
