ECW: The Return of John Morrison
Tuesday, October 9th, 2007
I hear the ECW roster is going to expand, which this show desperately needs. . .
We open with Tommy Dreamer vs Big Daddy V. . .highlights from No Mercy where CM Punk defeated V via DQ when Matt Striker interfered. . .Dreamer was angry that V stole his championship opportunity from him last week. . .V defeated Dreamer easily. . .
Kevin Thorn vs James Curtis. . .looks like a basic squash, never heard of this guy. . .not a bad thing, as it can establish the stars better. One really f'd up spot, but Joey Styles covered for it nicely in commentary when they went to the finish. That would have been ugly at the Arena. . .
Highlights of Miz, Extreme Expose and Balls Mahoney from last week. . .I'm glad I was in FL and missed it. Miz owns the contract of Extreme Expose and won't let Kelly go on a date with ball. In the back, he belittles her for having an interest in Balls. In the ring, Miz defeats Balls via CO when Balls gets pushed from the ring apron onto the announcers table. Miz takes the Balls teddy bear and kicks it into the crowd.
Raw highlights of the Randy Orton-Shawn Michaels angle. . .a look at past Cyber Sunday's/Taboo Tuesday's. . .
CM Punk vs the returning John Morrison for the ECW Title. . .Punk has his ribs taped up like Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania II. Pretty good match with Morrison going over clean. Morrison looked exactly the same here as he did when he did prior to serving his suspension. I didn't remember them saying it was a non-title match. I wonder who they'll line-up as Punk's challengers for Cyber Sunday. . .the big announcement comes at noon on WWE.com tomorrow. . .
There have been far worse episodes of ECW. . .it was far from great, but it wasn't enough to put you to sleep (no pun intended). . .
