Extreme Rules Tag Team MatchEdit
Another target of Heyman's, Tommy Dreamer, teamed up with fellow ECW original Sandman to take on Test and Mike Knox in an Extreme Rules Match. When Dreamer and Sandman started pulling weapons out from under the ring, the crowd loudly chanted "we want tables." Not ones to disappoint the fans, Dreamer and Sandman did one better by pulling out barbed wire boards, which the crowd appreciated.
Just as Dreamer and Sandman were about to catapult Knox into the barbed wire, Test caned Dreamer in the head, busting him wide open. Eventually Sandman chased Knox out of the arena, leaving Dreamer and Kelly Kelly alone in the ring. The fans wanted to see a return of Kelly's Exposé, but Dreamer put Kelly over his knee, pulled up her skirt and proceeded to spank her to the delight of the raucous crowd.
Francine makes a cameo appearanceEdit
In the catering area, Francine is shown with other ECW talent when Paul Heyman walks in and looks around when Francine would not even acknowledge him due to his actions earlier in the show. She had yet to debut at this point.
Kevin Thorn and Ariel in an alleywayEdit
Ariel and her vampire friend Kevin Thorn were also seen hanging out in an alley, and Thorn passed along this message:
"In the dark, in the light, I am Kevin Thorn and the blood of ECW will be mine."
There certainly was plenty of blood shed at Hammerstein Ballroom, but with the chaos abounding in the land of extreme, one can only wonder if there is more to come.
