“There’s No Place Like Home“

Saturday 07/08/2010 @ 9pm on Bravo. Originally aired Thursday 05/08/2010 on SPIKE!

Commentators: Mike Tenay & Taz

We kick things off with a video package looking back the events surrounding the arrival of EV2.0/ECW Hardcore Originals at last weeks iMPACT! and Raven’s shocking turn on Tommy Dreamer.

– Tommy Dreamer comes out the ring and tells Raven to get out here, cuz he’s got some explaining’ to do. Raven shows up on the stage. Dreamer asks him why he did it. Raven knows what this means to them and to everyone. They were friends, they were enemies, the best of friends, the worst of enemies. He thought that was behind them. He wants to destroy that? Why? Raven says they’ve known each other for 30 years. Raven asks if he thinks Dreamer would ever forgive him for taking away his girl. Those kids should have been his. He bided his time, knowing Dreamer would commit his heart and soul to something. Here it is. He’s committed everything, and he’s shattered it into a million pieces. His kids should be calling him daddy. He’s going to cripple Dreamer at Hardcore Justice, and his kids will be calling him daddy. Dreamer walks up the ramp and takes out Raven. Abyss comes out and goes after Dreamer. Abyss goozles Dreamer, and RVD hits Abyss from behind with a chair. Rob with a thrust kick off the ramp to Abyss. More chair shots by Rob as they battle through the crowd. Back on the stage, Raven hits Dreamer with the Even Flow DDT. Foley shows up behind Raven. Raven turns around and Foley nails him in the gut with a barbed wire bat. Foley says it will be the final encounter between Dreamer and Raven at Hardcore Justice, and there will be a winner, because Foley’s the special guest referee.

– Tenay and Taz hype up Hardcore Justice, but say we’ve got some extreme tonight. Beer Money vs the Guns in Ultimate X. Jay Lethal will face Ric Flair in a Street Fight. Raven and Abyss will face RVD and Dreamer in tag team action.
