WWE open, ECW open, then Matt Striker and Todd Grisham welcome us to Roanoke, Virginia!  Tonight, Tommy Dreamer faces Jack Swagger in a non-title match!

The Hart Dynasty heads to the ring as they show replays of last week’s match against Christian and Swagger.

David Hart Smith (w/ Tyson Kidd & Natalya) vs. Christian.  Lock up.  Smith overpowers Christian to start.  They trade hammerlocks.  Christian grabs a headlock, then comes off the ropes and gets dropped with a shoulder block.  Christian slaps Smith, schoolboys him for a quick 2, then slaps him again.  Smith slams Christian twice and gets 2.  Match goes on.  Smith tries to suplex Christian out of the ring, but Christian slips out and trips him, causing Smith to hit the apron face first.  Christian does a baseball slide or something.  I’m h having trouble keeping up.  Smith drops Christian painfully on the apron with a uranage.  Smith works over Christian in the ring.  Christian fights back and hits a big dive to the outside.  Commercial!  We come back to, shock shock, Smith holding Christian in a rear chin lock.  Smith hits some nasty backbreakers and covers for 2.  Christian fights Smith off and hits a missile dropkick for 2 and mounts his comeback, hitting a nice European uppercut off the turnbuckle.  Christian chases Tyson Kidd halfway around the ring for no reason, then runs back into the ring and into a lariat from Smith for a near fall.  Smith avoids the Killswitch and the tornado DDT, then Christian gets him with a springboard sunset flip for 2.  Smith counters another Killswitch attempt and hits his father’s trademark running powerslam for 2.  Christian goes up top.  Natalya distracts the referee, allowing Kidd to push Christian off the top rope.  Smith hits a backdrop suplex to win at 14:58.  That’s… slightly uncomfortable given recent events.  The Hart Dynasty prepares to beat down Christian, but Finlay runs down and runs them off.  Finlay then, for whatever reason, whacks Christian with the shillelagh.  Match was pretty decent.

Last week: Evan Bourne beat Tony Atlas, then got beat down by Mark Henry.  Henry vs. Bourne is NEXT!

Gregory Helms interviews Finlay.  I missed most of it.  Something about “an eye for an eye.”

Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) vs. Evan Bourne.  Henry charges straight ahead, but Bourne side steps him and throws some punches.  This incites Henry to kick his ass.  Bourne avoids a butt drop and tries to mount an offensive, but Henry blasts him with a lariat.  Bourne manages to dropkick Henry down and covers for 2.  Bourne ducks a lariat and tries a crucifix hold, but Henry turns it into the World’s Strongest Slam and squashes him for the victory at 3:39.  Henry delivers another WSM for good measure.  Fair match for what it was.  Henry’s gotten good at big guy selling.

Dreamer vs. Swagger is still to come!

Raw Rebound.

Gregory Helms introduces Jack Swagger, who wants his belt back.  Main event is NEXT!

Non-Title: ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer vs. Jack Swagger.  Dreamer is moving like a man possesed tonight.  Announcers put over that Dreamer has been training with Dean Malenko.  I wish Malenko would make a Finlay-esque comback.  Dreamer goes for his cannoball of the apron, but Swagger catches him with a powerslam.  Commercial!  Back from break, Swagger stretches Dreamer’s face in a sick way.  During the break, he hit the springboard Vader Bomb.  Dreamer tries to fight back, but Swagger locks him in an abdominal stretch.  Dreamer escapes and gets a sunset flip for a near fall.  Swagger hits a belly to belly for 2.  Swagger nails a lariat, I think.  I just halfway caught it out of the corner of my eye.  Swagger puts Dreamer in a waistlock, then takes a funny face bump into the turnbuckle.  Dreamer makes his comeback, then Swagger shuts him down again.  Swagger tries to set up a superplex but gets pushed away.  Swagger catches a diving Dreamer and goes for the Doctor Bomb, but Dreamer turns it into a cradle for 2.  Reverse DDT by Dreamer gets 2 as well.  Swagger avoids a frog splash and gets an Oklahome roll for the pin at 11:57.  Okay match I guess.  Finlay runs down and whacks Dreamer with the shillelagh.  Christian runs down and attacks Finlay.  Swagger attacks Christian and tosses him out, then Finlay whacks Swagger with the shillelagh.  I hope this means a return of the fighting Irish bastard Finlay.

Fin.
