ECW - 9/11/2007
"The Day Sandman Was Fired" ECW opens with Armando introducing CM Punk. . .a little "ha ha" with Punk giving Armando one of his t-shirts and trying to get him to where it. Elijah Burke comes out for a little confrontation, we set up the tag team main event. . .
Tommy Dreamer vs the Miz. . .I've learned quickly that I'm not in the mood for ECW tonight. This seems like the same show every week. Miz goes over with his Reality Check finisher.
Nice video package for the Boogeyman and Big Daddy V. . . too bad they have to have the match. . .this should be interesting in the wrong way. . .
Even the promo for the waste of time Diva contest is annoying. . ."to vote for Taryn, text Taryn" for all ten names. . .
Balls gets closer to Kelly Kelly's goods by giving her a stuffed animal. . .somehow I feel Mahoney and the Miz won't do the business that George Steele-Randy Savage-Elizabeth did, but I could be wrong. . .
Boogeyman and Big Daddy V is next way. . .damn! This should be on PPV so it can live on DVD for decades to come. . .
Little Guido vs Matt Striker. . .well, I think it's safe to say that nobody cares. This match went all of twelve seconds with Big Daddy pulling Striker out of harms way and a quick pin on Little Guido. Tazz is calling him Nunzio. Is he Nunzio now?? I guess so. I thought they changed his name back to Guido. Big Daddy V borrows Abyss' black hole slam. The Boogeyman comes on the screen and has a nursery rhyme for Big Daddy. Cool face paint, even though I'd rather eat the worms than watch the match. . .
A look back at Hornswoggle being named Vince McMahon's son. . .it's funny enough, but it's another big money angle dropped. . .they could have elevated a mid-carder into a main eventer with the snap of their fingers. What are they going to do with a midget. . .
Oh, it just gets better. Balls Mahoney vs Mike Knox. We haven't seen big Mike in some time, after that hot tag team he formed with Test. A battle of two men that love Kelly Kelly I guess. A friend in WWE told me that before last years Survivor Series, Shawn Michaels learned that Knox was on the other team and said "who is Mike Knox?" That's probably would a good portion of the people watching TV right now are saying. . .The Miz took Balls' attention away from Knox leading to the big kick for the 1-2-3. I wonder if someday Mike Knox will be referred to as a WWE-ECW Original??
Nice highlight package of Punk winning the ECW title last week. . .
Main event time. . .CM Punk & Stevie Richards vs Elijah Burke & Kevin Thorn. . .this seems like the 49th straight week Richards and Thorn have gone at it in some way, shape or form. Punk pins Thorn with the Go To Sleep. I would have rather have seen this as a singles match between the two where Punk won the belt last week. Would have been nice to see an angle to build tension between Punk and Burke at the PPV Sunday at Unforgiven. Not a bad match. . .I still think Burke will turn into a top guy on Raw or Smackdown before it's all said and done. . .
