We had wanted to do this type of episode, but to go through every episode of the podcast was becoming a tall order. Thanks to Phillip Goad and his unbelievable feat of listening to all 100 episodes in 3 weeks, we have a compilation show. The road to 100 has been paved with a lot of fun, laughs, and sometimes the darkest of jokes. But I don't think we would have had it any other way. Looking forward now to Season 4 in a few weeks!
We made it! 100 episodes of a podcast that started as just a review of Russo Era WCW. Fast forward two and half years and we are at the season finale of our run through all of the ECW ppvs. Not the greatest of finales but it beats December to Dismember. It's TNA's Hardcore Justice: The Final Stand. Then, we get into some nostalgia, talking about the origins of the show and all of the twists and turns and changes that have come since Halloween Havoc '99. Don't forget to keep following us on Twitter (@newbloodpod) and Facebook (New Blood Rising Podcast). Thank you all for all of the support to help get us to 100! Oh, and get ready for Season 4!
Well, they all can't be winners, now can they? Episode 99 of the podcast takes us to Augusta, Georgia where WWE/ECW bring us December to Dismember. What will happen in the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match? Are the Hardy Boys still wrestling MNM? No really, are they still wrestling because it might be the longest match ever.

Here we are, one year later from One Night Stand '05, and now we are on the eve of the revival of ECW in WWE. Episode 98 takes us back to Hammerstein where Rob Van Dam looks to unseat John Cena as the WWE Champion while Sabu looks to do the same to "World Champion" Rey Mysterio. We also get into some ECW on SyFy talk as a new chapter begins in WWE history.

It is June of 2005 and ECW has returned...for one night only...for now. It's One Night Stand '05, and the wrestling world is caught up in a wave of nostalgia since WWE released the Rise and Fall of ECW DVD in 2004. William, Jason, Charlie, and Martin catch up with old friends from Season 3 and see if Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka can deliver one more time in a fun reunion show for ECW. It's a hell of an episode, probably the darkest comedically that we have ever released. Please continue to follow us on Twitter and Facebook as we get closer to episode 100!
It's episode 96 of the podcast, we have reached an important moment in season 3 as we are at the end of ECW Prime: The Paul Heyman Years. It's Guilty as Charged '01, and there's a feeling of the end in the air, but it's by no means a lay up show as we get to see one last time, Rob Van Dam, returning to ECW, taking on Jerry Lynn. And Rhino is on the prowl, literally without his ECW TV title, threatening to wreak havoc in New York.

And an extreme Christmas to you too! ECW hits Hammerstein Ballroom to bring us a new ppv: Massacre on 34th Street. Rhino defends his ECW TV Title against Spike Dudley while the ECW World Title is up for grabs in a three way dance with Steve Corino, Jerry Lynn, and Justin Credible. Please continue to follow the podcast on Twitter, @newbloodpod, and on Facebook, New Blood Rising Podcast. If you can as well, please drop us a review on iTunes!
Into November of 2000 we forge with, fittingly, November to Remember '00 where we will be subjected to Double Jeopary as the ECW World Title will be on the line simultaneously, so to speak, between Justin Credible and, champion, Jerry Lynn as well as The Sandman and Steve Corino with the winner each match taking on each other. And with this show, we say goodbye to a major part of season 3's review of ECW! Please continue to follow us on Twitter, @newbloodpod, and on Facebook, New Blood Rising Podcast!
