ECW November to Remember 2000 - 11/5/2000 - Double Jeopardy Match

ECW November to Remember 2000 - 11/5/2000 - Double Jeopardy Match

The match is 2 matches in 1 in the same ring. The two matches are:

Jerry Lynn vs Justin Credible

The Sandman vs Steve Corino

The wrestlers can team up and fight each other but each wrestler can only pin their assigned opponent. The 2 winners then fight each other.

NOTE - This website was having issues while I did this, so I had to stop doing pics/gifs for it.

This match was absolutely awful.

The rules are pretty cool - 2 matches are going on at the same time and the two winners fight each other to determine the winner of the match. Cool scenario, lots of various things you can do with it and it's something really unique.

Unfortunately, this was about as bad as you can do it. Remember the 2 matches thing? Well, Sandman doesn't come in until about 5 mins and then drinks for another few in the crowd and they don't do a 2v1 with the heels vs Lynn, so they miss out again. During this, there's bladejobs and people are busted open, while absolutely no one pays attention, including the cameras. This was the WWE Network version too, so no Enter Sandman and weird crowd micing.

When the match finally starts, it's no good. Sandman immediately just starts beating up everyone and it basically becomes a four way. No story was worked and they tried but failed to establish a partnership with the two faces of Sandman/Lynn or the two heels of Corino/Credible. Everyone just ends up fighting each other, and 2 people are always outside the ring throwing each other into the barricades. They do some of the weakest ladder spots I've ever seen and Sandman suplexes Corino on a rail while hitting his head off of it.

They then do double pins on the Sandman and Lynn...the two faces, leaving only the two heels of Corino/Credible to fight. The crowd doesn't really get into it, but it's a little better than what we got before. Francine and Dawn Marie get in and we get the obligatory Francine thong shot, before the guys get hit in the nuts and Corino hits Credible with an awful superkick to end this.

This match was awful and a total fail. This was ECW at its worst and they took a really good concept and completely blew it. I have no idea what they were thinking here.
