General Manager Armando Estrada and Colin Delaney are
backstage where Delaney signs his contract. Estrada tells Delaney if he thinks
he was a target before, he is really a target now. Tonight, in his first WWE ECW
match, Delaney will face Mike Knox.
CM Punk from Chicago, IL weighing 225 lbs.
The Miz from Cleveland, OH weighing 231 lbs.
One half of the WWE Tag Team Champions
The other half of the tag team champions, John Morrison,
appears on the entrance ramp with Miz, but Miz waves Morrison to the back and
enters the ring alone. Punk begins the match as a wrestling match but I donít
look for Miz to continue under real wrestling rules. Miz grabs the ropes and
immediately takes a swing at Punk who takes Miz down and goes for a roll up. He
canít get the three count. Miz bulldozes his way through the match with no
grace whatsoever Ė no wonder the fans donít like him. Miz goes for a cover
and gets a one count, twice. Miz goes for a cover again and again gets a one
count. Miz drops Punk with a shoulder block but he canít get a one count.
He does it again and again canít get a one count. Punk delivers a power
slam and goes for a cover but he only gets a one count. Punk delivers a high
knee to Miz in the corner, a high leg lariat to the face, a clothesline, another
high kick as Miz comes off the ropes and goes for the cover to get a two count.
Miz goes for a bridge roll up but Punk powers out. Miz delivers a boot to the
gut, comes off the ropes, Punk tries for the GTS, Miz counters, delivers a neck
breaker, goes for the cover and gets the three count. Time: 4 minutes.
Winner: The Miz with a neck breaker
Adamle informs the audience that later tonight Morrison faces
the Big Red Machine Kane and there is a six diva tag team match coming up.
Diva Tag Team Match
Kelly Kelly, Cherry & Michelle McCool
Layla, Victoria & Natalya
Kelly Kelly and TNAís Velvet Sky must get their wrestling
outfits at the same place. Natalya & McCool start off the match. Iíd like
to see Natalya and Victoria outside the WWE ring. Natalya tags in Victoria.
McCool tags in Cherry but Natalya tags herself in with a blind tag and Cherry is
in trouble. Natalya tags in Victoria who comes over the top rope with a leg drop
and goes for the cover but only gets a two count. Victoria delivers a body slam
but stops to showboat for the audience and gets caught when she goes for a
standing somersault. Victoria stops Cherry from making a much needed tag
Victoria gets distracted taking McCool and Kelly off the ring apron, Cherry goes
for the roll up and gets the win. Time: 4 minutes
Winner: Cherry with a roll up, Michelle McCool & Kelly
Iím not sure why Kelly and Layla were in this match. At
least Layla worked a little from outside the ring.
Lena Yada is backstage with Shelton Benjamin to talk about
Kofi Kingston. Benjamin says that the next time he faces Kingston; he will beat
Kingston and stop his winning streak. Kingston appears to slam Benjamin into a
Delaney will face Knox next as Adamle and Tazz go over
Delaneyís history since heís been in WWEís ECW.
Colin Delaney weighing 165 lbs.
Mike Knox weighing 286 lbs.
Delaney gets a standing ovation from the audience as he
enters the ring for the first time since signing his WWE contract. Iíd say
that Delaney is giving up a lot of weight (again, heís faced Knox before). The
bell rings and Delaney comes out with a double drop kick that doesnít have the
desired affect on Delaney. Knox has Delaney in the corner pounding on him until
the referee makes him stop. Knox nails Delaney with the corkscrew neck breaker,
goes for the cover and gets the three count. Time: 1 minute
Winner: Mike Knox with a neck breaker
After Knox clears the ring, Estrada appears to congratulate
Delaney on his first ECW match and then to tell Delaney that he will now have to
face the newest member of the ECW roster, Armando Estrada.
Estrada delivers a blow that keeps Delaney on the mat. Estrada says he
has just signed himself to a very lucrative contract and tells the ref that this
is Estradaís first official match as an active member of the ECW roster and
tells the ref to ring the bell.
Delaney hasnít even gotten back to his feet, but Estrada
picks him up, delivers a slam and goes for the cover to get the win. Tim: 1
Winner (if you want to call it that): Armando Estrada
Kane is backstage ready to face Morrison coming up next.
John Morrison from Los Angeles, CA weighing 220 lbs.
One half of the WWE Tag Team Champions
Accompanied to the ring by Miz
The Big Red Machine Kane weighing 323 lbs.
WWE ECW Champion
Did Morrison and Miz have to draw straws to pick their
opponents tonight? Morrison immediately goes after Kaneís legs with kicks but
Kane manages to take Morrison down to the mat. Kane delivers a short drop kick
and goes for the cover, getting a two count. Kane picks Morrison up and appears
to be stretching Morrisonís neck before dropping him face first onto the
canvas. Kane makes the ref do a full count before releasing Morrison and again
takes Morrison down for the cover, getting another two count. Kane continues to
work on Morrison with a chin lock. Morrison gets back to his feet and again goes
after Kaneís left leg. Kane delivers a kick to Morrisonís gut while Miz
looks on worriedly from outside the ring. Morrison comes back and continues to
work on the leg while Miz helps out from the outside behind the refís back.
Punk appears to be a stop to Mizís interference and Miz runs around the ring
out of Punkís way and we go to COMMERCIAL BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH!
Back to the action, Kane and Morrison are back in the center of the ring. Adamle
reminds the audience that this is a non-title match as Kane drops Morrison to
the mat and goes for a cover. Kane gets a two count. Kane delivers a neck
breaker and goes for the cover but only gets a two count. Morrison makes it back
to his feet and again goes for the legs but Kane delivers a blow that drops
Morrison to the mat. Morrison delivers a drop kick that backs Kane up into the
corner. Morrison has Kane down and is working on the left knee again. Kane uses
a fist to the forehead to make Morrison break the hold but as both men get to
their feet, Morrison delivers a kick to the knee that drops Kane. Morrison goes
for the cover and gets a two count. Morrison slides out of the ring to use the
ring post to do further damage to Kaneís knee. Morrison makes the ref go the
full count before releasing Kaneís knee on the ropes. Punk looks concerned as
Kane is down on the mat. Kane fights back but Morrison again delivers a boot to
the knee that drops Kane. Kane finally uses his other boot to the side of
Morrisonís face to make him release his hold on Kaneís knee. Kane delivers a
hard right and then a clothesline and then another clothesline but Morrison
counters the side slam. Kane catches Morrison with a second side slam but
canít get the three count. Kane goes out to the top turnbuckle and comes off
with a clothesline then waits for Morrison to get to his feet but Miz is up on
the ring apron. Punk gets involved and the end of this match isnít even worth
talking about. Letís just say that Morrison and Miz canít wrestle, but they
can win when they use the title belt. Time: 11 minutes
Winner: John Morrison and not by himself or without the use
of a foreign object.
After the match, itís a beat down by Miz and Morrison but I
quit watching so I canít tell you if thatís how it actually ended.
