Joey Styles says that tonight’s footage will come Wrestlepalooza ’95, which took place at the ECW Arena on August 5. He reviews some of the events that transpired there, including the Sandman caning Mikey Whipwreck until Woman told him to stop because she did not want the Sandman to forfeit the ECW Championship. The Sandman sat in the ring as part of a strike, triggering a confrontation with the Public Enemy because they had a stretcher match with the Gangstas. A disjointed recap over still photographs reveals that the Sandman cost the Enemy the match and that Whipwreck returned to battle with the Sandman after the match was over.
The Enemy and Whipwreck are in the hood, with the Enemy giving Whipwreck a Public Enemy jacket. They try to educate him in the ways of the street before Johnny Grunge screams about the Enemy being the “MacDaddys of violence in ECW” and that they are going to take the Sandman to the extreme. As all three walk away, Whipwreck does the Enemy’s celebration wave.

The show opens with a replay of the Gangstas attack on ECW Tag Team Champions the Public Enemy at Barbed Wire, Hoodies & Chokeslams.
