and delivers a hard short arm clotheslines. Knox then uses the ropes to choke
Kingston. Knox goes for the cover but Kingston keeps his shoulder up and Knox
can’t get the three count. Knox resorts to fists to the head and an over the

lot of “Kofi” chants. Kingston gets back to his feet but Knox takes him
right back down to the mat. The audience continues to chant and Kingston is back

After the match, Benjamin enters the ring and goes after
Kingston but Kingston takes Benjamin down and pounds on him, however, Knox
catches Kingston from behind and delivers a corkscrew neck breaker. Knox has a
cut under his eye and is bleeding a little profusely for such a short match.
I’m not sure when or how that happened. Knox leaves the ring, bleeding and
smiling but the referee has to make Benjamin leave the ring while Kingston is
still down on the mat.
The announcers show the footage of how Knox got a cut by his
eye. It appeared that an elbow blow
by Kingston started it.

Neely wasn’t around last week on ECW.
The fans are pro Punk. We start off with a shoving match and Punk tries
for an early GTS but Guerrero gets away and bails out of the ring. Punk takes
Guerrero down with an arm drag when Guerrero is brave enough to get back in the
ring. Punk delivers a couple of kicks and then an elbow as Guerrero comes off
the ropes. Punk goes for a cover and gets the one count after delivering a snap
suplex. Guerrero comes back with fists and uses a handful of hair. Punk goes for
a back slide and gets a two count. Guerrero drops Punk on the ropes and then
goes for the cover. Guerrero gets a two count and we go to COMMERCIAL BREAK IN
THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH! Back to the ring, Punk sends Guerrero over the top rope
and down to the floor. Punk then delivers a kick that sends Guerrero back down

move but Punk sends Guerrero to the mat. Punk misses a knee in the corner,
Guerrero goes for the roll up, using the trunks and gets the three count and the
win. Time: 9 minutes.
Winner: Chavo Guerrero with a roll up
I haven’t had too much to say lately about ECW matches but
this one was worth watching. Even when Chavo Guerrero cheats, he does it so well
you tend to forgive him. Punk has always done a great job in the ring when given
the chance. He and Guerrero managed to keep this one-hour time slot alive.
