WWE ECW 2/10/09 (Repost)

WWE open.  A couple of weeks ago, Hornswoggle stole Jack Swagger’s ECW Championship belt.  Swagger pushed Hornswoggle and got his ass kicked by Finlay.  Last week, Finlay had a hand from Hornswoggle in handing Swagger is first defeat.

Matt Striker and Todd Grisham welcome us LIVE to Fresno, California as Jack Swagger makes his way to the ring.  He has to defend the title against Finlay at No Way Out, but tonight he’s calling out Hornswoggle!  However, the music that plays is a remixed version of “Just Close Your Eyes.”  It’s the returning Christian, who makes his way to the ring with a nice (not huge, but nice) response from the crowd.  Captain Charisma makes fun of Swagger’s lisp, then issues a challenge to the winner of the Swagger/Finlay No Way Out title match.  Swagger says Christian is not a threat to him, so Christian nails him with the microphone.  Instant commercial.

Moments ago: Christian nailed Jack Swagger with a microphone!

Swagger complains to Teddy Long and says he’s taking the rest of the night off.  Long says no, Swagger has a match tonight with Christian!

Tommy Dreamer is in the ring.  Last week, Miz and Morrison made fun of him, then beat him up.

Tommy Dreamer vs. World Tag Team Champion The Miz (w/ John Morrison).  Dreamer throws a weak punch, then awkwardly takes him down.  Tommy goes to ringside and makes Miz take a bump into the guardrail, then throws him back in.  Miz takes over briefly, then Tommy hits a backdrop suplex.  Tommy has a flurry of offense and gets a near fall with a Sky High-type move.  Dreamer hits a neckbreaker off the ropes and covers, but Miz gets a foot on the ropes.  A distraction from Morrison allows Miz to hit the Reality Check (I think) for the win at 3:08.

Tonight: Christian vs. Jack Swagger!

WWE Slam of the Week: Last week, the Boogeman squashed Jamie Noble.  Noble bailed before he got the worm treatment

Teddy Long is chatting with Tiffany in his office when Noble comes in.  Long offers him a rematch with Boogeyman, but Noble doesn’t want that.  He wants better treatment since he’s a huge superstar.  There’s a knock on the door.  It’s Natalya and TJ Wilson, who is going by the name Tyson Kidd.  They put over that he was trained in the Dungeon by Bret Hart.  Sure he was.  Was he?

No Way Out: Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels vs. JBL, a couple of Elimination Chamber matches, and Finlay vs. Jack Swagger.

Christian is getting ready when Finlay and Hornswoggle come in.  Finlay welcomes Christian to ECW, but warns him that after No Way Out, he’s going to have to go through him if he wants the ECW Title.

WrestleMania is 54 days away!

Evan Bourne returns… when?

Tyson Kidd (w/ Natalya) vs. Bao Nguyen, whose name is way to difficult a name for a one shot jobber to have.  Bao goes a hammer lock to start, then Kidd kicks his ass.  Kidd nails a kick right to Bao’s face!  Kidd wins at 1:30 with a swank springboard elbow drop.  Jamie Noble appears at the top of the ramp to stare at Kidd and Natalya.  That should be a good one for next week.  Kidd was impressive.

Swagger vs. Christian is NEXT!

Raw Rebound: Orton talked, then wrestled Undertaker.  Legacy ran in and the three of them beat down Taker until Shane McMahon made the save.  Yes, Shane McMahon saved UNDERTAKER.

Non-Title: ECW Champion Jack Swagger vs. Christian.  Swagger out wrestles Christian to start, then Christian nails him.  Finlay and Hornswoggle comes down to join the announcers as we take an instant commercial break, during which Swagger took over and press slammed Christian out of the ring.  Back in the ring now, Swagger is beating up Christian.  Christian starts making a comeback when he hits a tornado DDT for a near fall.  He hits his reverse DDT and goes for either his frog splash or a headbutt, but misses.  Christian goes for the Unprettier, but Swagger counters and gets a near fall off of an Oklahoma roll, then a  belly-to-belly suplex.  They tease a German off the apron, but Swagger ends up being knocked off and into the announce table.  Swagger throws Christian over the table into Finlay and Hornswoggle.  Back in the ring, Swagger exposes the turnbuckle, but Christian gets him with an inside cradle for a near fall.  Hornswoggle provides a distraction, allowing Finlay to hit Swagger with the stick I can’t spell.  Christian takes advantage and hits the Unprettier for the win at 8:14+ commercials.  Pretty decent match.  It’s good to see Christian back in WWE and away from that circus in Orlando.
