Shooters Radio: ECW Wrestlepalooza ’98 deep dive

WWE NETWORK/SCREENSHOT

The guys dive deep into Extreme Championship Wrestling’s Wrestlepalooza ’98, which took place May 3, 1998 at the Cobb County Civic Center in Marietta, Georgia.

Shane Douglas would wrestle with four separate fractures, but that doesn’t mean the match was good. New Jack just flies everywhere. RVD and Sabu had a great botchfest. The pay-per-view was great!

We also include the unedited audio of Douglas’ shoot promo before Taz comes out to confront him. It was… wild.

The card:

  • The bWo (The Blue Meanie and Super Nova) vs. The F.B.I. (Little Guido and Tracy Smothers) (w/ Tommy Rich)
  • Justin Credible (w/ Jason and Chastity) vs. Mikey Whipwreck
  • ECW World Tag Team Championships: Chris Candido/Lance Storm (c) vs. The Hardcore Chair Swingin’ Freaks (Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten)
  • Bam Bam Bigelow vs. New Jack
  • Tommy Dreamer/Sandman (w/ Beulah McGillicutty) vs. The Dudley Boyz (Buh Buh Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) (w/ Joel Gertner, Big Dick Dudley and Sign Guy Dudley)
  • ECW World Television Championship: Rob Van Dam (c) (w/ Bill Alfonso) vs. Sabu (w/ Bill Alfonso)
  • ECW World Heavyweight Championship: Shane Douglas (c) (w/ Francine) vs. Al Snow

That and more on this week’s episode!
