I’d estimate the crowd at 1,850-1,950. There are some scattered seats around the top of the venue but the floor is completely full and the bleachers are 85% too.

Your winner, Daivari!

What you would expect from these guys.
Roadkill took the mic and asked the FBI to return to the ring. He said that he wanted to tell all of them something. He told a kid to be quiet because if he knows his wrestling history, Roadkill doesn’t talk a lot. He said he has a lot of respect for them and the matches they had in ECW. We had the first ECW chant of the crowd. RK said that ECW is the past but HOH is the future and people will be chanting it soon. He said that he wanted to thank all of them. He thanked everyone for their support and asked them to keep supporting HOH.
Doring took the mic and said that you can say ECW or HOH but if there wasn’t a FBI, there wouldn’t have been a Doring or Roadkill. It was a nice, classy moment.

Excellent match and since the majority of the audience didn’t know who these guys were, it really was a “star is born” moment.
Scott Steiner came to the ring for a promo. He said that he wanted to know where his freaks were at. He said that he wanted to thank everyone for following him on Twitter. He said he’s been telling the truth about what p***ies Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are, so now he’s in a lawsuit.
Out came Luke Gallows with Eddie Kingston. Gallows and Steiner began brawling and they rang the bll.

Entertaining brawl. Funny to see Scott rip on Hogan and Bischoff while he’s being sued. He really has no fear. Really entertaining with everyone doing their job well. Kingston was a hell of a corner man.
Chris Mordetsky took the mic and ripped out on Poughkeepsie. He knocked a bunch of fans and picked someone, an African-American fan named “Adam” for the Challenge. Mordestsky made a lot of comments about the “Hood.”
The crowd began chanting “Bullsh**” over the guy picked. Masters put it on and wouldn’t let go. Hale Collins, who is a local star from the area, came to the ring and said he wanted to take the challenge. Collins got a nice reaction.

Your winner, Chris Mordestsky!
Good match, although they probably went a little long and lost the crowd towards the end. Collins was really over as the local guy and they had some good exchanged. The masked man was likely Vik Delicious who is “banned” from wrestling in Poughkeepsie after losing a stipulation match for NEW, which ran here last year.

Your winner, Rhino!
Big Daddy V vs. Ham and Egger

Another young guy came in and nailed a series of dropkicks but V grabbed him and chokeslammed him into a sit down powerbomb for the pin.

When they returned, Adam “Edge” Copeland came to the ring. He said the last time he did a show at this level was 1997 and the reason he is here tonight was Tommy Dreamer. He said Dreamer busted his ass to have this show. He said that he wanted the fans to give themselves a hand for showing up. He said that fans should give themselves a hand for cheering and booing and having fun because that’s what wrestling is all about.
He said it was fun for him to see the young guys like Sami Callihan getting drilled by Rhino’s piledriver. He said that made him think of Paul Orndorff piledriving Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant getting his hair shaved. He said that he loves moments like those and this next match could be a moment like that. He said the teams remind him of Edge and Christian and The Hardy Boyz. He said London & Kendrick and the Bucks are going to do things now in their prime, that he could never do.
