TNA HardCORE Jutice Opener:
We open the show with a video package highlighting some of the former stars of ECW, current members of EV2.0. They talk about how they revolutionized the wrestling business, and it was where they learned some of the most important lessons in their careers. They also talk about paying tribute, and coming home tonight.
No pyro, but we do get crowd shots, and lots of 'E-C-Dub' Chants. There's a different ring announcer, though I'm not sure who he is, and he introduces Taz. Taz makes his way out to the entrance ramp with a mic in hand. He welcomes the fans to Hardcore Justice. Lots of 'Taz's chants. He says he's been backstage since 11 a.m. and he's looked into the eyes of the athletes that will perform tonight, and it's going to get extreme, because the desire is in their eyes again, and their passion will bleed out tonight in more ways than one. The Impact Zone is absolutely packed. Taz says as of recent, there's been some haters and doubters on what they did back in the day. He hears stuff like 'they were a bush league promotion'. Taz says they weren't all about violence. All they did was revolutionize the business. He says they were the true renegades of the industry, and that's the real deal. Taz says they were the little engine that could, and they did. He says he's got a message to the folks who doubt what they did, they don't get it, and they never will, so they might as well just kiss his ass.
Taz says he's done, he's the human suplex machine, beat him if you can. Back to Stephen DeAngeles, the ring announcer, and it's time for the first match. The FBI of Tony Mamaluke, Little Guido, and Tracy Smothers make their way out first.
The FBI vs. Kid Kash, Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger
Kid Kash is the first man announced for the opposing team, and he makes his way out to a big pop from the crowd. Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger are announced as Kash's partner, and this one is on. We get formal ring introductions for all six men, as well as Big Sal E. who accompanied the FBI, and there's huge pops for everyone.
Kid Kash and Guido start things out for their respective teams. For some reason the house lighting is kind of a blue hue. Guido takes Kash right down to the mat where he and Kash roll around for a bit before getting right back up. Kash and Guido chain wrestle for a bit, trading roll ups and starting to argue. Kash shoves Guido and then Guido extends his hand. Kash shakes hands with Guido, but brings him in nose to nose. Tony Luke tags in, and so does Swinger. Luke hits a drop toe hold and tries for a roll up but Swinger kicks out. Luke locks in an arm bar, but Swinger picks him up off the mat and slams him down to break the hold. Smother and Diamond are the next men to tag in.
Diamond and Smothers come to blows, with Smothers looking like a million bucks, taking it right to Diamond, taking him down to the mat, hitting a big knee drop, and taking Diamond to the outside. Diamond grabs a mic while on the outside, and he comes back into the ring, telling the Impact Zone that he has a problem. This crowd is pretty awesome, very reminiscent of an old ECW machine. Diamond says they're not a fine oiled machine because of Kash. So while the FBI can probably out-wrestle them, their team can out-dance them. Diamond asks for the DJ to hit the music and initiates a dance contest. Swinger and Diamond dance, horribly, while Kash looks on ashamedly. Smothers grabs the mic and says Michael Jackson rolled over in his grave. He asks the DJ to hit the music again because if they can't do better everyone dies. The FBI then begins to dance.
