November to Remember 1994 was a live event that took place on November 5, 1994 in the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US.

The event featured a retirement ceremony for The Sandman, who had seemingly been blinded in an "I Quit" match with Tommy Dreamer on October 1, 1994. During the ceremony, The Sandman's ex-wife, Peaches, attempted to reconcile with him, only to be interrupted by Woman, The Sandman's former manager, who had labelled him "useless" and abandoned him upon his blinding. Woman interrupted the reconciliation, caning Peaches and threatening The Sandman. After Dreamer came to the ring to protect The Sandman, The Sandman revealed that he was not in fact blinded and attacked Dreamer, with his estrangement from Woman revealed as a ruse to ensnare Dreamer.[1]

During the bout between Chris Benoit and Sabu, Sabu legitimately suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in nerve damage after receiving a botched back body drop from Benoit. Benoit subsequently adopted the nickname "The Crippler".[2]
