    ECW on Sci Fi.


    In late 2006, the newly reborn ECW was floundering under the WWE’s control. Clearly it wasn’t being portrayed the way Paul Heyman had envisioned, nor the way that Vince McMahon had envisioned. Obviously both men had differing ideas on the way ECW should be run. Many were seeing ECW’s December to Dismember Pay Per View as it’s one and only chance to see if the new brand would be a long term success. But it seemed with Mr. McMahon’s control, the ECW brand wouldn’t be seen as a major player within the WWE.

    Nobody knows how or why it happened, but the date of October 28 would be a day people would remember, within the company at least. A shift occurred within the WWE where Stephanie McMahon and Triple H would have near-complete control of Monday Night Raw, Michael Hayes and Bruce Pritchard would have near complete control of Friday Night Smackdown, and Paul Heyman and Shane McMahon would have near-complete control of ECW. Vince McMahon would obviously be the judge and jury on any decision of all three shows, but it seems his main interest would be in the WWE’s flagship show, Raw. Heyman and Shane McMahon were pleased to say the least. Both were the biggest supporters behind bringing back ECW, and now they would have much more freedom to portray the show with their vision. One of the key aspects of this power shift would be that each brand would be seen as independent from the other, and the brands would be conducted both on and off screen as opposing teams. This would include Trades, Signings and Developmental call-ups. For example if ECW wanted a superstar from Raw on its brand, Heyman and Shane would have to offer a trade or something of interest to Stephanie and Triple H in order to have him on their brand. This, in Vince’s eyes, would be a way to add a bit of realism to the product and create competition between the three brands, which could make for compelling television. When it comes to Developmental call-ups, if a brand wants to call up a wrestler, they have to pitch their ideas for the superstar to Mr. McMahon and if he likes the idea’s, they would be allowed to call-up the wrestler.

    With ECW having a smaller brand and only one hour of television, it would only be natural it would be seen as the weaker brand. In an effort to quell this thought, Vince had already approved for a few superstars to transition to ECW from Smackdown and Raw. There is no word yet on who these superstars are, but who they are should come to light on future ECW shows in the near future. Vince McMahon has also tentatively agreed to up ECW’s Pay Per Views to 4 per year, pending on December to Dismember’s success. October 31st would be the first show for ECW under the new WWE era, will Vince McMahon’s experiment work? Only time will tell…

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    ***Previously on ECW on Sci Fi.***
    Paul Heyman made RVD face terrible odds if he wanted a rematch for the ECW World Title. Heyman put the mandate in, if RVD can win a ladder match, he would get a rematch for the ECW Title. His opponent?.. The ECW Champion Big Show! Heyman's Riot Squad then attacked RVD in order to soften him up before the Main Event.

    CM Punk defeated ECW's resident school teacher Matt Striker via disqualification. The Disqualification came when Mike Knox attacked CM Punk.

    Test was able to defeat Hardcore Holly via pin fall, but it was clear to everyone bar the referee that Test had use the tights for leverage. After the match Test attacked Holly's scarred back viciously with a steel chair.

    In the Main Event, RVD was able to overcome the odds and win the ladder match against the Big Show. This has earned RVD a rematch against the Big Show for the ECW World Championship!

    Thanks Kakarot, a lot of highly underrated guys on ECW during this period in my opinion. Mike Knox, The FBI and Matt Striker are a few more that come to mind. Hopefully I don't disappoint

    ECW on Sci Fi. Preview
    Date: October 31st, 2006
    Location: Milwaukee, WI.


    Last week on ECW RVD earned the right to a rematch for the ECW World Championship against the champion Big Show. It is being said that ECW General Manager and Associate of the ECW Champion Paul Heyman has a big announcement in regards to when and where that rematch will take place. Heyman has gone on record to say the announcement will rock the foundation of ECW.

    ECW will also see a special appearance from the undefeated Samoan Bulldozer Umaga and his handler Armando Alejandro Estrada. At Cyber Sunday fans have the ability to determine Umaga’s opponent, with the choices being Smackdown’s Chris Benoit or Kane, or ECW’s own Hardcore Icon The Sandman.

    And in the Main Event of ECW we will see The ECW Champion Big Show team with his “ally” Test to take on former ECW and WWE champion Rob Van Dam and his partner Hardcore Holly!

    Also scheduled to appear are CM Punk, the FBI, Mike Knox, Sabu, plus many more! So tune in to ECW this Tuesday Night, 10pm/ET on the Sci Fi network!

    ECW on Sci Fi.

    Date: October 31st, 2006
    Location: Milwaukee, WI.
    Announcers: Joey Styles and Tazz


    Joey Styles and Tazz welcome us to the show and as Paul Heyman’s music hits they make mention that the Boss has a big announcement. Heyman makes his way to the ring flanked by his personal Riot Squad and ECW’s resident Giant and the World Champion, Big Show.

    Heyman announces that last week, Rob Van Dam earned the right to face the Big Show in a rematch for the ECW World Championship. Heyman says that RVD let him know during the week that he chooses to face the Big Show on December 3rd, at the next ECW Pay Per View event, December to Dismember. Heyman says that he has no choice but to allow this to happen, but he wants RVD and the rest of the world to know that his title shot won’t be as easy as he was hoping. Because the Main Event of the December to Dismember Pay Per View will be the Big Show defending his ECW title against 5 men in an ECW Extreme Elimination Chamber match! Heyman explains that like all Elimination Chamber matches, 6 men will compete, with 2 men starting the match. The other four will be locked into pods and enter the match every 5 minutes. The difference in this match however, is that in those pods will also be a weapon, a weapon that can be used once the wrestler enters the match! Heyman says that RVD will be one of the participants and that will be his rematch! There is a mixed response for the crowd as they are excited for the match announcement, but unhappy that RVD is being screwed once again by Paul Heyman.

    Styles and Tazz wonder about the announcement by Heyman, pondering why he would put the Big Show in such a vulnerable position to lose his title.


    **------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    Extreme Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match
    Kevin Thorn vs. Sabu

    Kevin Thorn made his way to the ring accompanied by his valet/girlfriend, the Vampiress Ariel. Sabu made his way to the ring with the support of the crowd in attendance. The match starts with Kevin Thorn using his size and strength advantage to gain the upper hand. The Vampire Thorn is feeling right at home in this Halloween edition of ECW on Sci Fi, and using his comfort level is showing as he is easily tossing Sabu around the ring as if he were nothing. Thorn begins to target the back of Sabu, and does a good job of neutralising any comeback attempts by the death defying Sabu. Kevin Thorn is in complete control, and it he knows it, which causes him to make a crucial mistake. Thorn begins to underestimate Sabu, which opens the door for a comeback. Thorn misses Sabu with a big kick and gets caught up on the ropes. Sabu then takes the opportunity to springboard off the adjacent ropes and side kick Thorn out of the ring. Sabu takes the time to gain some much needed energy, and as Thorn attempts to make his way into the ring, Sabu baseball slides the Vampire into the steel barricade. Sabu then somersaults over the top rope, sentoning Thorn into the barricade again. Unfortunately for Sabu this isn’t an Extreme Rules match so he is forced to make it back into the ring before the referee’s ten count. Thorn makes his way into the ring as well and is met with a leg drop onto the back of his neck. Sabu is gaining momentum and hammers Thorn, who makes his way to his knees. Sabu then springboards off the ropes and hits a tornado DDT! Sabu goes for the cover, but Thorn just kicks out at the count of 2. Sabu showing no change in ammo goes for a Springboard once again, but this time Thorn counters with a big decapitating clothesline! This could be the end for Sabu, as Thorn signals that he is going for The Crucifix! Thorn positions Sabu on his shoulders, but Sabu counters into a big DDT! Sabu goes for the cover, 1… 2… 3! Sabu gets the win and qualifies for the Extreme Elimination Chamber!

    Result: Sabu via Pin Fall



    **------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    As we return from commercial we are met by a vignette hyping the debut of a new wrestler on ECW. The wrestler is a Russian Shoot Fighting expert, Boris Alexiev.

    Backstage ECW’s Rebecca DiPietro is with Rob Van Dam. She asks the ECW Original what his thoughts are about his rematch for the ECW World Title coming in the form of an Extreme Elimination Chamber Match. RVD says that in typical Paul Heyman fashion he has done something to screw Mr. Pay Per View, but an Extreme Elimination Chamber? That’s fine by him, because he is the most extreme athlete in the world, and at December to Dismember the ECW World Heavyweight Champion will be {Double Thumbs} Rob… Van… Dam!

    To the surprise of everyone in attendance, Eugene makes his way out to the ring. The fans are not as friendly to Eugene as he would hope, but that doesn’t discourage the very special superstar. Eugene announces to the crowd that he has a very special gift for all of the great ECW fans from Raw’s Assistant General Manager Jonathan Coachman. The crowd is uninterested and many boos are filling the arena. Eugene says that the gift to the entire crowd is Eugene! Eugene then says that he wants to make this moment special… Eugene begins to sing ‘Why can’t we be friends? Why can’t we be friends? Why can’t we be friends? Why can’t weeee beeee frienddds?!’ Eugene is then cut off…

    ** “Nightmare” blasts over the speakers and is accompanied by the Sandman’s Titantron **

    It’s The Sandman! Styles and Tazz say that poor Eugene is in big trouble. Sandman appears through the crowd and makes his way to the ring with a beer and Singapore cane in hand. Sandman gets through the crowd and stands atop the steel barricade at ringside, cracks open his beer and pours it down. Sandman smashes the can over his forehead and finally makes his way into the ring. The crowd are buzzing over The Sandman, and what he might do to Eugene. Before you can blink, Sandman begins wailing on Eugene with the Singapore Cane! This forces Eugene out of the ring, and he runs up the ramp holding the back of his head. Suddenly…

    Umaga’s them song hits and The Samoan Bulldozer and his handler Armando Alejandro Estrada make their way out, and as they pass Eugene, Umaga viciously attacks the former World Tag Team Champion. Umaga then turns his attention to The Sandman, as Styles and Tazz deduct that he must be here because Sandman is one of his potential opponents at Cyber Sunday this weekend. Umaga and Estrada enter the ring and the Sandman wastes no time. He strikes Umaga square in the head with his cane not once, not twice, but three times. Umaga simply stands there… and explodes! The Samoan Bulldozer screams and throws his arms out before erupting into a huge Savate Kick. Umaga drags Sandman into the corner and takes a run up. He hammers the Extreme Icon with running hip smash, leaving Sandman nearly unconscious. Umaga is rag dolling the near lifeless Sandman, and stands him up. Armando Estrada takes out one of his signature Cuban cigars, and snaps it in two signalling the end! Umaga screams in Samoan and finishes off The Sandman with a Samoan Spike!



    **--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**


    Backstage Kelly Kelly catches up with CM Punk. She says that for Halloween she is dressing up as him to go trick or treating. Before Punk can react, Mike Knox enters and questions what Kelly is up to. Kelly says she was just talking to her friend Punk, and Punk says that if Mike has a problem he should do something about it. Knox says he just found out that next week he will have a chance to qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber, and his opponent is Punk! Punk says that finally Mike will have a chance to back up his words. Knox laughs sarcastically and grabs Kelly by the arm and “wishes” Punk luck next week. Punk claims that luck is for losers and that he doesn’t need luck to beat Knox, all he needs is his ability. Punk walks off and the camera fades as Knox question’s Kelly’s relationship with Punk.

    Tag Team Match
    Full Blooded Italians vs. Rene Dupree and ‘The Reject’ Shannon Moore


    This is a match that would have been an interesting dynamic, with the established team of the FBI taking on the makeshift team of Rene Dupree and Shannon Moore. ‘Would have been’ being the key phrase. A few minutes into the match Paul Heyman’s personal security the Riot Squad interrupts the match taking out the Full Blooded Italians! Tazz says that for some reason Heyman has turned his back on the ECW Originals, the guys who helped get him to where he is today. The Reject and Rene Dupree don’t seem to be on the same page in any case and after the match they argue back up the ramp as The Riot Squad stand over the fallen bodies of the FBI.

    Result: Full Blooded Italians via DQ

    We go backstage to where Paul Heyman is with The Big Show and Test. Heyman is trying to pump up his team and is telling them to show no mercy to their opponents RVD and Hardcore Holly. Heyman says that despite his laidback persona, RVD is a fierce competitor and a former ECW Champion in his own right. Heyman also says that Hardcore Holly is one tough S.O.B. He is a savvy veteran and has more heart than most guys in this business. Big Show tells Heyman to calm down, he is the most dominant athlete ever in ECW and the ECW Champion, and no one can touch him. Test says that he is the most impactful star ECW has ever seen, RVD and Hardcore Holly don’t stand a chance.


    **------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    Main Event
    Big Show and Test vs. Hardcore Holly and Rob Van Dam

    Paul Heyman and the Riot Squad accompanied the team of Test and Big Show to the ring. RVD received huge fanfare as he made his entrance, and Hardcore Holly also got quite a modest reaction. The match itself is a competitive affair and has very contrasting styles. Big Show, being the biggest man in the match up, obviously uses his size and strength as an advantage to ground the high flying RVD. RVD attempts to use his speed to counter the size differential and has some success. It really isn’t until both Test and Hardcore Holly are tagged into the match that it turns very physical. Both men are a brawling type and are hard hitting. Test has the slight size advantage but Hardcore certainly won’t back down. Test and Hardcore break out into a wild brawl, which goes to the outside on numerous occasions. Unfortunately for the team of RVD and Holly, the referee falls victim to an errant shot from Hardcore and Test takes advantage with a low blow. This also allows the Riot Squad to pull RVD down from the apron and begin a two on one assault. Big Show makes his way into the ring and he and Test begin the beat down on Hardcore Holly, much to the excitement of Paul Heyman. RVD and Holly are in deep trouble as ECW goes to its final commercial break. Back from the break and the Big Show is the legal man against Hardcore Holly, and the referee is back to his senses. Big Show is dominating Holly, keeping him grounded. RVD is on the apron, still worn from the beating courtesy of the Riot Squad, but eager to help his partner and get into the match. Big Show tags in Test, who is pandering to the crowd and begins to simply take pot-shots at Holly. Holly tries to fight his way back into it and for a moment it seems like he is successful, he rebounds off the ropes, but Test hits a Big Boot sending Hardcore straight back to the mat. Test with a cocky cover, 1… 2… but Holly is just able to kick out. Test stands Holly up and offers to give him one free shot, Holly instead spits in the face of Test! This enrages Test, and he goes for the Pumphandle Slam! Test gets him up, but Holly slides backwards off the shoulder of Test and falls back into a tag from Van Dam! RVD enters the match with a flurry and hits every move in his arsenal sans the Frog Splash to gain control of the match. Everything from the back heel trip, to the enzuigiri, to the rolling thunder give RVD the advantage over Test. RVD signals that he is going to the top rope for the 5 Star Frog Splash! He leaps to the top rope but Paul Heyman gets on the ring apron to distract the referee! Van Dam hits the frog splash, and goes for the cover but the referee is still distracted! Van Dam tries getting the referee to turn around, and releases the cover. Van Dam finally has enough and strikes Heyman off the apron! He goes to make another cover but turns into a chokeslam from the Big Show! Test crawls into a cover… 1… 2… 3! Test and Big Show get the cheap win!

    Result: Big Show and Test via Pin Fall

    After the match the Big Show brings a beaten Hardcore Holly into the ring and gives him a chokeslam for his troubles. Heyman gingerly enters the ring with the help of his Riot Squad and they stand alongside Test and Big Show. All 5 men stand over RVD and Hardcore Holly as ECW on Sci Fi comes to an end.

    **----------End Show----------**

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    Right here goes my comment on your first ECW show mate. Good opening to the show with Heyman intent on screwing RVD out of winning the ECW title. I enjoyed that you are keeping the Extreme Elimination Chamber concept and it will be interesting to see who else qualifies alongside RVD and Big Show. Nice opening bout between Kevin Thorn and Sabu for a spot in the Chamber match. It was written well as Thorn came off looking very strong and powerful but it was Sabu who managed to pick up the big win in the end. Nice interview with RVD hyping the match and not caring as he is the most extreme. I liked the use of Eugene to get Sandman over before you had Umaga come out and destroy him. I was a big fan of the Umaga character back in the day so intrigued to see where this goes from here. I always found The Sandman a bit of a weird character and not great in the ring but I am willing to give him a chance in this BTB haha. Good segment involving Mike Knox and CM Punk surrounding Kelly Kelly and it setup the match between the two of them for a spot in the Chamber next week nicely. I think you will probably go with Punk in the end but nonetheless it will be interesting to see. The Riot Squad attacking the FBI was intriguing and I sense a tag team rivalry in the pipeline perhaps. The segment with Heyman trying to motivate Test and Big Show was also good and hyped up the main event really well. I enjoyed the main event with RVD looking like he was going to win by pinning Test only for Heyman to intervene allowing Show to destroy Van Dam. Chokeslamming Hardcore Holly was also a nice move to end the show with all four of Heyman’s guys and Heyman standing over their challengers. Overall a very enjoyable first show, I like your writing style and I also like the presentation. I am intrigued to see how the show develops and what direction you go in compared to real life. Good work!

    Cheers for the comments OrderDX. You will see a similar build to the December to Dismember Pay Per View as in real life 2006. But there will be a few key and very important changes which will shape the project from there on after.

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    WWE/ECW News and Notes
    November 3rd, 2006

    The WWE has re-signed the recently released superstar’s Brent Albright (known to Smackdown fans as Gunner Scott) and Orlando Jordan. Word is that Paul Heyman pushed hard for the company to re-sign Albright, so that Heyman could use him on ECW. Heyman previously booked Albright in OVW and Albright and ECW youngster CM Punk reportedly had very good chemistry in the ring in the company. The key proponent to the WWE re-signing Orlando Jordan was Shane McMahon. McMahon has great respect for his athletic ability and he feels that Jordan will be an asset for the ECW brand which is currently lacking in numbers and due to many ECW originals, polished athleticism.

    No word yet if Albright and Jordan will make their way to the ECW straight away or report to developmental first, but there is no question both men will make their way to the ECW roster soon.

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.


    ECW on Sci Fi

    Date: November 7th, 2006
    Location: Moline, Illinois
    Announcers: Joey Styles and Tazz


    ECW begins with a recap of what happened in the Main Event last week with Big Show, Test, Paul Heyman and his goons standing tall over RVD and Hardcore Holly. The announcers then welcome us to the show and say that tonight we will see two men qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber match at December to Dismember. Styles then poses the question about what the fallout of last week’s main event will be. Tazz says that RVD and Hardcore Holly can only have revenge on their minds tonight. But before any of that let’s see who will be the next to qualify for the Extreme Elimination Chamber!

    Extreme Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match
    CM Punk vs. Mike Knox

    In a match that has been building for a long time and didn’t need any extra motivation for both young stars, certainly has received it with a spot in the Extreme Elimination Chamber on the line. The crowd is firmly behind CM Punk in this match but before it can begin Mike Knox sends his ‘girlfriend’ Kelly Kelly to the back, so she doesn’t distract him. The match itself is a rather quick one, and really doesn’t go the way of establishing Knox and Punk as an even match up. Knox begins the match in control, but CM Punk soon takes over and dominates to the finish. Punk hits all of his established signature moves, the corner knee and bulldog, the springboard clothesline, and the double underhook back breaker. Knox tries to rally, but is only met with more Punk domination, and then Punk goes into his final sequence. Two slaps… spinning back fist… roundhouse kick… Uranage! Punk locks in the Anaconda Vise… and Mike Knox taps out!

    Result: CM Punk via Submission


    **---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**


    Back from the break and Paul Heyman is backstage with Armando Alejandro Estrada. Heyman says he was very impressed with what Umaga did at Cyber Sunday to The Sandman. Heyman say's that when The Sandman was chosen by the fans to face Umaga, it was a forgone conclusion who would win. Heyman says the days of the likes of The Sandman, RVD and Sabu are over and the new blood of ECW will rise to the top. Heyman then tells Estrada that he has invited him here tonight to offer him and his client a very exciting opportunity. Estrada says that he is listening as we head back to ringside.

    Styles and Tazz wonder what that was all about as we see Amish Roadkill and Danny Doring in the ring. Elijah Burke and Sylvester Terkay then make their way to the ring for their ECW debut.

    Tag Team Match
    Amish Roadkill and Danny Doring vs. Elijah Burke and Sylvester Terkay

    Many thought this match would be an easy match for the team of Burke and Terkay and in a way the many were right. It wasn’t quite as easy as Burke and Terkay would have liked it too, as Burke used his athletic ability to easily overmatch Doring, but when Roadkill came into the match he proved to be too much of a challenge for Elijah. Roadkill came in and his power was too much for Burke, which sent Burke reeling. Fortunately for him, he was able to tag in his partner Terkay, who showed incredible strength manhandling Roadkill. Doring tagged himself into the match, but Terkay was too big and too strong and he finishes the match with a Muscle Buster on Doring!

    Result: Elijah Burke and Sylvester Terkay via Pin Fall

    After the match, Paul Heyman’s Riot Squad attacks the fallen Danny Doring and Roadkill. They double team Roadkill and send him out of the ring. They then double team Doring and punish him with a double Spine Buster to the outside of the ring!


    **---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    Just like last week, a vignette for the Russian shoot fight specialist Boris Alexiev airs. He claims he is coming to punish the ECW roster.

    Backstage Rebecca DiPietro is with Matt Striker. Striker says that he is a much more sophisticated mind than that which you would normally see on ECW. Striker is an educated man and says that his biggest asset is his brain. Striker says that in comparison to the other ECW troglodytes, he can be considered a genius. The camera widens to reveal a Striker’s Classroom blackboard. Striker says that he was like to introduce you to example A, Balls Mahoney. Striker sticks a photo of Balls onto the blackboard. Striker says that Balls has always spat in the face of authority, and recalls the time he punched out a referee in an amateur wrestling contest. Striker says Balls can barely dress himself, pointing to his ripped shorts and singlet, let alone be an intelligent superstar. Striker then gives example B, Rob Van Dam. Striker says that while he was in class learning, and becoming the genius he is, RVD was under the bleachers “slacking off”. Some call RVD laid back, Striker calls him lazy. RVD is just another example of why Matt Striker is better than ECW. Striker then moves onto example C, the example which he says is the most damning of all. Striker says the final example is The Sandman. Striker says that The Sandman is the embodiment of everything that is wrong in ECW. The Sandman is a beer drinking, cigarette smoking, cane swinging fool. The Sandman has thrown away every opportunity he has had in his life to be civilised, and instead become the most uneducated individual off all.

    **---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    Back from the break and we see a replay from Cyber Sunday of Umaga destroying the Sandman in their match. Sandman was voted by the fans to face Umaga, beating out Kane by 1%. Before the match, Paul Heyman announced the match would be an Extreme Rules match. This didn’t help the Sandman any, because even though he was allowed to use his signature Singapore Cane, Sandman proved no match for the undefeated Umaga.

    It is announced by Justin Roberts that the following match is an Extreme Elimination Chamber Match Qualifier. Tommy Dreamer makes his way out to the ring to a rousing ovation. His opponent…

    **Umaga Titantron**

    To the surprised of everyone, his opponent is the undefeated Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga! Styles and Tazz deduct that this must have been the opportunity Paul Heyman offered to Armando Alejandro Estrada earlier in the night.

    Extreme Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match
    Tommy Dreamer vs. Umaga

    Despite Tommy Dreamer’s legendary passion and heart it is obvious from the get go that he is no match for Umaga. Umaga monsters Dreamer, decapitating him with a huge Samoan Drop, as we have seen so many times in the past Umaga drags a near lifeless Dreamer into the corner and smashes Dreamer with a running hip attack. By the orders of Armando Estrada, Umaga ends the match with the Samoan Spike!

    Result: Umaga via Pin Fall

    Styles and Tazz say that Umaga has to one of the favourites entering the Extreme Elimination Chamber now, and perhaps the biggest threat to the Big Show’s title that there has ever been. The announcers don’t understand why Paul Heyman would put his handpicked champion, the Big Show’s title in this much jeopardy.

    **---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------**

    Main Event
    Extreme Rules
    Hardcore Holly /w Rob Van Dam vs. Test /w The Big Show, Paul Heyman and The Riot Squad

    We had a preview of this match last week when both Test and Hardcore Holly were in the ring during the Tag Tam Main Event. Going into the match everyone was expecting a stiff, hard hitting affair and this match was certainly that. What helped the cause was the fact that this was an Extreme Rules match, where anything goes. It seemed that Test will have the advantage in the match, due to his overwhelmingly stacked corner, and despite RVD being in Hardcore Holly’s corner, not even he can circumvent the Big Show, Paul Heyman and the Riot Squad. Despite this, Holly is able to put quite a bit of damage on Test. RVD goes as far as Asai Moonsaulting onto the trio of the Big Show and the Riot Squad to take them out of the equation for the time being. This allows Hardcore to go onto the offensive without interruption. Hardcore utilizes the use of a steel chair to hammer the back of Test. Holly hasn’t forgotten being ambushed with a steel chair from behind by Test the week after suffering a 10 inch gash across his back. Hardcore sets up the chair around the ankle of Test and it seems that he is intending to break the ankle of Test. Holly grabs another chair and smashes it over the ankle of Test! Test writhes in pain, begging Holly off. Unbeknownst the Hardcore Holly, Paul Heyman slides a steel pipe to Test and as Holly edges closer to him, Test swings the pipe straight into the knee of Holly! Holly goes down and now both men are dealing with leg injuries. Van Dam takes out Paul Heyman, much to the delight of the crowd, but unfortunately for him The Big Show has recovered. Show locks RVD into a Cobra Clutch and he swings RVD hard into the steel barricade. Show enters the ring and has eyes for the downed Hardcore Holly. Holly somehow sticks a chair straight up into the groin of Big Show and he drops like a ton of bricks. Holly and Test both make their way to their feet, and start hammering away at each other. Test gets the advantage and goes for a Pumphandle Slam, but Holly slides off and goes for the Alabama Slam and… hits it! But before holy can go for the cover, Umaga is in the ring and takes out Holly with a Samoan Spike! Test crawls into the cover… 1… 2… 3!

    Result: Test via Pin Fall

    After the match, Paul Heyman struggles his way into the ring, Test and the Big Show struggle to their feet and the Riot Squad enter the ring. Paul Heyman shakes hands with Umaga’s handler Armando Estrada, and it seems as if Umaga will be the Big Show’s insurance in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. Joey Styles exclaims that this must be the reason Heyman offered the chance to Umaga. The show closes with the 7 men standing tall in the ring, with The Big Show in the centre raising his ECW Championship.

    **------End Show------**

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    Right here goes my comment on your next ECW show mate. Enjoyed the opening match with CM Punk getting the win and getting the spot in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. The match is becoming stacked and I look forward to seeing what you eventually do with it at the pay per view. The opportunity for Umaga has got to involve the Chamber I would have thought and having the Samoan Bulldozer on ECW would be a real boost to the show for sure. The tag team win for Burke and Terkay was good with me and I completely forgot about Terkay even being in the WWE, whatever happened to him? Heyman’s Riot Squad attacking after was a good way to let everyone know who is controlling the show. I enjoyed the Matt Striker promo a lot and I really hope he gets a decent push in this BTB. I was always a fan of his teacher gimmick and felt had he been better in the ring he could have gone a lot further than he did. And I was right; Umaga is in the Extreme Elimination Chamber match although he is a serious threat to Big Show for sure. Maybe Heyman is going to add Umaga to his clientele. Should be very interesting to see what you do that is for sure. I really enjoyed the main event with so many superstars involved and getting into the match. At one point I thought RVD would maybe help Hardcore Holly to the win but having Umaga as Show’s insurance could go one of two ways. Does he help Show or is there going to be a swerve and he wins the gold instead? Also I think RVD will probably get one of the final two spots in the match. Another solid show, this is entertaining stuff so far so props for that.

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    Gave this whole thread a read today because I used to love the old ECW, so whenever a thread like this makes an appearance, I always check it out. Plus I owed you a favour

    What I've enjoyed:

    - The addition of Umaga - The guy was so good as the monster heel, I've enjoyed his meetings with the ECW originals and in the elimination chamber he should be pure carnage. The only downside is, if he's on ECW, then he want be challenging John Cena next month at the Royal Rumble, which was an outstanding match. Then again, this could be a 1 month thing to add star power to your ppv.
    - The ommision of Bobby Lashley - He just wasn't Extreme in the slightest, wasn't a good fit, so I'm glad to see he's not around
    - Poor Eugene
    - The striker segment from the latest episode is the best thing you've wrote, I wasn't really down with Striker in ECW, but I dug his promo here.
    - Brent Albright resigned - I've heard a lot of good stuff about Punk's feud with Albright from OVW, so much so that I think this is a logical move as Heyman would know that he's got good chemistry with Punk. Could be a great little feud for your brand.


    What I haven't enjoyed:
    - The news that Orlando Jordan is returning. Meh is all I have to say to that, I'm not a fan.
    - Not much build to anything outside of the chamber match I mean that's fine because you're still 4 weeks away from the ppv, but after 2 episodes I'd have liked to see another storyline here to help make December To Dismember better than the 2 match show it was.
    - Still waiting for this ECW to become YOUR ECW, and not the one we all saw on TV. Umaga's post Cyber Sunday appearance is really the only original thing in this BTB atm, everything else is just exactly what it was in real life (RVD clashing with Show and Paul, Kelly Kelly fancies Punk so Knox is mad etc). In the coming episodes I'm hoping for something new that takes ECW in a different path to reality, I think some of the signings you've made hint that you're planning some changes.

    Generally speaking your writing and presentation is good enough, so I'll definitely be checking this BTB out again in the future.

    Cheers for the comment once again Order, I'm glad my writing is making is making my storytelling logical and easy to follow. I thought it might be a bit obvious through the show about Umaga and Estrada aligning with Show and Heyman, but I felt that if I can put that across even though you saw it coming it is soemthign you want to see and something that would make sense which is never a bad thing in this wasky world of wrestling we love.

    Cheers Ed, and don't lie, you just really wanted to read it haha.

    Yeah, unfortunately I can't reveal plans just yet on whether Umaga will just be a 1 month thing or not. But I always enjoyed Umaga and writing for him is so easy it's almost a cheat, he equals one word = Chaos. I love chaos.

    Bobby Lashley didn't fit, at all. He was the exact embodiment of Vince running the show and not Heyman. As long as Heyman (and I'm) in charge, he will step foot no where near an ECW ring.

    I love the Eugene character, it was well handled and Nick Dinsmore just put everything into it. I don't know the shelf life of the character, but little "hit-and-runs" so to speak are always entertaining add a little comedy to a sometimes cut and dry show. Look for Eugene to pop up here and there with the same excuse of Johnathan Coachman not wanting him, at all.

    Long story short, I love Brent Albright, nuff said.

    To each there own about Orlando Jordan I suppose, I always thought the potential was there, he is a very athletic dude, not much in the way of character, but I'm hoping I can build of his athletic ring style to promote him.

    As for your last two points, that is one of the issues with picking up a brand/promotion part way in, rather than starting from scratch. It wouldn't be realistic to just drop everything that was happening in ECW at the time. So in the interest of me keeping it realistic, just for my own happiness, I am forced to let current feuds/stories to run there course. I have subtly planted seeds for feuds however, and over the next two shows it will become much clearer, and the D2D pay per view card will begin to take shape. Very much during and after the Pay Per View my vision will clearly be taking shape, when I can rid myself of stories that I am forced to keep going for a few weeks at least.

    Thanks for the comment Ed as always Ed, hopefully I can keep it interesting for ya

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    WWE/ECW News
    Date: November 8th, 2006


    *According to both the WWE and ECW websites, it is announced that the WWE has come to terms with the releases of Christopher W. Anderson and Danny Doring. The WWE would like to wish both men well in all of their future endeavours.

    *According to sources, Amish Roadkill, who made an appearance on the latest edition of ECW on Sci Fi losing to Elijah Burke and Sylvester Terkay along with his long-time partner Danny Doring, is being sent down to developmental to be completely repackaged. Word is that Paul Heyman, Shane McMahon and most importantly Vince McMahon are high on Roadkill, but is in need of a character overhaul. No word yet on what his new gimmick will be or if he will return to ECW once he is ready. It looks like he will be sent to Deep South Wrestling rather than Ohio Valley Wrestling.

    Re: ECW on Sci Fi.

    Sad to see C.W Anderson depart but, I get that in 2006, his age certainly wasn't going to help him.

    I haven't commented in this before, have I? I've been reading here and there, hoping to become a regular and much like Ed, there are points I agree with and some not so much but you've already addressed them so I wont bring them up again. I liked Orlando Jordan btw. :P

    I do hope that the stacked ECW roster doesn't become a problem, though. You have CM Punk, Big Show, RVD, Umaga, Test (I love Test), Hardcore Holly(ish) and any of that lot can easily be taken as big stars in the realms of ECW. Plus you have the regulars of Sabu, Dreamer & Sandman but I don't see you giving any of them (except Dreamer) a big look in on the ECW Championship.

    Will you be bringing in the ECW Television or ECW Tag Team Championships at all down the line?

    Overall, this project is going in a good direction, you have the talent and obviously good enough writing skills to pull this off and keep it going. Hoping that December To Dismember doesn't come off terrible like it did in real life.

    Thanks for the comment WCW Rules.

    Yeah in the original ECW I was a huge fan of both CW Anderson and Danny Doring, but unfortunately in 2006, and the way they came back into ECW, they weren't anything like the guys I enjoyed watching on ECW.

    The stacked roster shouldn't become an issue, there will be an influx of new talent, and I already have scripted ways to keep everyone relevant.

    As for the Television and Tag Titles, that is something you will have to keep reading to find out I will say, it seems a bit silly only to have a World Title doesn't it?

    Again thanks for the comments, I'll try to keep things interesting for ya.
