"ECW" Report

Oh My God!: Paul Heyman’s gone, Bobby Lashley’s the champion, and it may be time to cut bait on this experiment.

Conclusive Finishes: 3 of 4.

The Extreme Rundown:

They started the show by bringing up Paul Heyman’s departure from ECW. I have no idea what to make of that at this point in time. They also announced the next episode of ECW will be on Saturday the 16th. I’ll be traveling home that day so who knows if I’ll be doing a report on that show.

1. Rob Van Dam and CM Punk beat Test and Hardcore Holly via disqualification in a brief match. RVD dedicated the match to Sabu. Most of the match consisted of him being worked over, before he finally tagged Punk. Punk used the uranage and anaconda vise on Holly, but the Riot Squad interfered for the DQ. Sabu made the save.

2. Tommy Dreamer beat Daivari with a DDT. After the match Great Khali gave Dreamer the two handed choke slam on a chair. Big Show did a promo saying that Lashley can’t beat him one-on-one and that he would win back the title.

3. Kelly Kelly beat Ariel with a rollup. After the match Mike Knox came out in a suit to ask for forgiveness, but instead he laid Knox out. Tazz came into the ring to check on Kelly. I still think Kelly is much better off as a heel, but given they have no plans for Knox they are better off sticking her with a higher act on the card.

4. Bobby Lashley beat Big Show to retain the ECW title. Show worked over Lashley for most of the match. Lashley came back with clotheslines and a body slam to win. This was a lumbering big man match and it’s a good thing Show is getting a break. I give him credit for working hard in ECW despite not having to and not really being appreciated for it. He was still a bad choice for champion, but he did more with the spot than I expected.

Please Don’t Go:

There wasn’t much of note on this show, which was mostly just a continuation of December to Dismember. The thin talent roster is certainly better on a one hour show with commercials. Bobby Lashley is another awful choice for ECW champion, as he symbolizes the musclehead antithesis of ECW. I like Lashley’s upside because of his fire, look and high impact moves, but he’s not a good fit for a distinct ECW.
