WWE ECW 2/16/10

WWE open, video showing highlights of past ECW moments (original and WWECW), ECW open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Josh Matthews and Byron Saxton are our hosts for the final episode of ECW.  Tonight, they’ll reveal the cast of NXT.

Savannah is our ring announcer.

Unified WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Big Show & WWE United States Champion The Miz (c) vs. Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu.  Show Miz’s mixed theme is awful.  Goldust and Miz go at it to start.  Tag to Yoshi.  Nice double teaming from YoshiDust gets a 2 count.  Yoshi is wearing awesome tights tonight that put me in mind of Jake Roberts.  Goldust tags in and hits the butt butt on Miz for 2.  Show tags in, but Goldust didn’t see it and gets the back of head smashed in by a headbutt.  Commercials!  Miz has Goldust in a rest hold.  Yoshi and Show tag in.  Yoshi throws some kicks, then gets mauled by Big Show.  Byron Saxton says “Size doesn’t do the Big Show’s size justice.”  Yeah, he said that.  Bad guys get heat on Yoshi.  Yoshi makes a small comeback on Miz.  Hot tag to Goldust.  He runs wild on Miz.  Snap powerslam gets 1 as Show distracts.  Yoshi tries to cut him off, but gets tossed out of the ring.  Show punches Goldust on the ribs and Miz hits the Skull Crushing Finale for the pin in 9:35.  Fine little match.  Miz is carrying a lot of hardware these days.

First NXT cast members: Chris Jericho mentors Wade Barrett and Matt Hardy mentoring Justin Gabriel (FCW’s Justin Angel).

ECW GM Tiffany starts to talk, but Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendez interrupt.  Ryder is mad that he’s not the main event.  Rosa yells at her in Mexican (I jest, I jest).  Ryder says it’s Extreme Rules, so he can interfere if he wants to.  Commercials!

NXT commercial.

NXT cast: MVP mentors Skip Sheffield.

Tony Atlas introduces Abraham Washington.  The Abraham Washington Show is in the ring tonight instead of on the stage.  He talks about how he’s about to be a free agent.  He pimps NXT, then introduces  his guest… himself.  Shelton Benjamin comes out.  He talks for a minute.  Vane Archer comes out and tells Shelton that he better hope they don’t end up on the same show.  Trent Barreta and Caylen Croft come out, then Vladimir Kozlov.  I don’t even know what the fuck he said.  Kozlov beats up Archer, Croft, and Barreta.  Kozlov and Benjamin shake hands and hug.  Odd segment.

NXT cast: Carlito mentoring Michael Tarver.

The main event is NEXT!  Not to be confused with NXT.

NXT cast: The Miz mentors Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson w/ new awful WWE name).

Elimination Chamber hype video.

NXT cast: Christian mentoring Heath Slater.

Christian comes out for the main event.  He cuts a promo about how he returned to ECW last year and it became home to him.  He puts over the guys he’s worked with and mentored, and says tonight he’s fighting for the ECW Originals.  He says he’ll always be proud of being the last ECW Champion.  The main event is NEXT!  For real this time!

NXT debuts next Tuesday!

NXT cast: CM Punk mentors Darren Young.

Extreme Rules Match for the ECW Championship: Christian (c) vs. Ezekiel Jackson (w/ William Regal).  Zeke shoves Christian across the ring to start.  Christian ducks some blows, slaps Zeke, then sends him out of the ring.  Zeke pulls Christian out of the ring, clobbers him, throws him in the ring, and throws in some plunder.  Christian hits Zeke (on the apron) with a Singapore cane to knock him off.  Zack Ryder (w/ Rosa Mendez) runs in and attacks Christian.  Christian kicks his ass, flapjacks him onto a trash can, and throws him out of the ring.  Rosa slaps Christian.  Tiffany runs in and kicks Rosa’s ass and yells at Rosa and Ryder to leave.  Commercials.  Zeke beats up Christian.  Christian takes a bump off the top rope and into the guardrail.  Christian avoids a trash can blow and hits a missile dropkick off the steps to kick the trash can into Zeke’s face.  Zeke sends Christian into the steps.  Zeke tries to ram a shopping cart into Christian, but Christian avoids it.  Zeke sends Christian into the shopping cart.  Literally.  Back into the ring, Zeke covers for 2.  Christian avoids a charging trash can lid in the corner, hits his kick, and follows with a diving cross body for 2.  Zeke crashes a trash can into Christian for 2.  Zeke and Regal get a table and hold it up so Christian can baseball slide dropkick it into their faces.  They fight over the table back inside.  Zeke puts Christian on the top rope and sets up the table.  He goes for a superplex, but Christian fights him off and goes for the tornado DDT.  Zeke avoids it.  Christian hits Zeke with a Singapore cane, then chases Regal away with the can.  Christian wails on Zeke with the cane, hits the diving European uppercut, and sets up the Killswitch.  Regal attacks Christian.  Christian avoids the knee trembler and hits the Killswitch on Regal.  Zeke hits the uranage (which Saxton calls the Book of Ezekiel, as I suggested last week) through the table for the pin in 11:25.  That belt actually looks good on Zeke.  Fun match, with as close to an ECW feel as you’re going to get in the homogenized land of WWE.

NXT cast: R-Truth mentors David Otunga.

NXT plug.

I’m going to miss WWEECW.  It’s been a pretty consistently good show for a long time.
