Simon & Swinger & C.W. have a problem.  Considering they’re interrupting Joel Gertner just as he’s finishing saying “Well, well, well”, I reckon they must’ve had a gutful of his smutty, innuendo laden little poems.  ‘Tough Guy’ Simon still has a score to settle from the PPV and wants to fight “four eyes” (Joey Styles), thinking that he’s not so tough without a microphone in his hand.  Maybe he should ask Bradshaw how tough Styles is.  He takes exception to the way that he talks about them and thinks he has no right to criticise seeing as neither he nor Gertner have ever stepped in the ring themselves.  Styles says that is true, however at one point Gertner was a successful manager and has got a couple of kids who would love to kick their ass.  Christian York and Joey Matthews step through the curtain but that still only makes it three on two.  Gertner continues that when he managed the Dudleys there was one man who was a constant thorn in his side who he now has a lot of respect for, enter Tommy Dreamer making his return after injury.  Matchmaker Tommy has a poem of his own, declaring the match ‘Falls Count Anywhere’. 

After an initial slugfest in the aisle things take a more traditional route as everyone gets a brief moment to shine in the ring.  Springboard bulldog by York on Swinger, Simon Series, C.W. with the Ferris Wheel etc.  Not before too long though everyone is back on the outside as the six battle it out around the Mid-Hudson Civic Centre.  Anderson tries to dump Dreamer off the bleachers, eventually managing to do so.  York has been busted open at some point, although as there are three separate fights taking place it’s tricky to keep an eye on everything that’s going down.  Matthews is bleeding too now, even worse than his regular partner.  Great delayed superplex by C.W. holding Matthews upside down.  As he heads back up top York gives him a push causing him to crotch himself.  Anderson kicks out after the ‘Rebel Yell’ and then York does the same following a ‘Problem Solver’.   A Simon pescado accidentally takes out Swinger as we see that Dreamer is bleeding also.  C.W. counters the ‘Spicolli Driver’ with a spinebuster before collecting a table from under the ring which he bridges upright in the corner.  He looks for a second spinebuster but this time Dreamer is the one doing the countering and puts C.W. through the table with another ‘Spicolli Driver’.   Anderson kicks out of the cover and you can clearly see he’s getting the push as that is now both of his opponents’ finishers that he has kicked out of.  Crazy suicide dives by York and Matthews leaving Diamond and Dreamer all alone in there.  Simon has him on his shoulders ready for the ‘Simonizer’ when in the ring steps a shirtless Joel Gertner doing his white Kamala gimmick.  He gets decked but Simon ends up tied in the ‘Tree of Woe’, helpless as Dreamer dropkicks a chair which he had placed in front of his face.  ‘Studmuffin Splash’ in the corner.  That name is every bit as bad as corny as the ‘Damaja Splash’.  Dreamer with a DDT. Gertner does the Kamala gimmick of covering the man when he is lay face down, Dreamer having to tell him to roll him over, which he does, and Gertner gets the pinfall with Tommy sat on his back.  If you were in any doubt about that push, C.W. kills the face team with brutal chair shots post-match and then puts the Anderson armbar on Gertner as Styles screams for someone to get him off there as he’s going to break his arm.

On the back of the OMEGA match where we saw them play 80s heels, more versatility shown from York and Matthews, this time in a bloody brawl.  Unfortunately the match fell off a cliff for the last few minutes when Gertner interjected himself, topped off by him being the one getting the pinfall.  I suppose that is one of those “ECW things” that you just have to accept.  Deeper story is the push of C.W. up to the mains, kicking out of those finishers and leaving everyone laying at the end.
