WWE open, ECW open.  Matt Striker and Josh Matthews hype the Championship Scramble Match at the Bash.  Tonight, in a preview match, Tommy Dreamer & Christian take on Mark Henry & Jack Swagger!

Evan Bourne vs. Tyson Kidd (w/ David Hart Smith and Natalya).  This will rule.  Bourne still has his ribs tapped from his recent beatings at the hands of Mark Henry.  They’re awesome for a minute, then Smith tries to interfere.  The rest of the Hart Dynasty gets ejected, then Bourne and Kidd are awesome some more.  “ECW” chants after Bourne hits a dive to the outside.  Kidd works Bourne’s injured ribs.  Bourne turns a move attempt in a cover for 2.  Kidd attacks the ribs again.  Bourne takes the chest first bump into the turnbuckle made famous by Bret Hart.  Bourne hits a sort of frog splash to Kidd’s back and hurts his ribs again.  Bourne gets a sweet modified cradle for 2.  Striker plugs WWE Classics.  Bourne hits a sweet rana and another move and gets 2.  Kidd lands a spin kick to the ribs.  Bourne catches Kidd with a knee to the face, then goes up top and lands the Shooting Star press for the pin at 5:25.  Awesome little match.

Replay of last Finlay’s attacks on everybody last week.  Finlay is headed our way!  Commercials!

Finlay comes out.  He’s pissed because Christian and Dreamer texted instead of calling him after they hurt his eye.  Zack Ryder comes out and talks shit.  His music is fucking gay.  Finlay vs. Ryder is NEXT!  Which means it will be half over after the commercials.

Finlay vs. Zack Ryder. JIP, of course.  Ryder is wearing half trunks/half pants.  WTF?  Finlay kicks his ass, and rightfully so.  They end up conking heads, which apparently hurts Finlay’s bad eye.  This allows Ryder to get some heat on him.  Ryder targets the injured facial area.  Finlay makes a comeback.  Finlay Roll gets 2.  Finlay hurts the eye again.  Ryder uncovers a turnbuckle while the referee checks on him.  Finlay gets a quick flash pinfall at around the 10 minute mark.  Match was ok.  Commercials!

Gregory Helms tries to interview Mark Henry.  Something heavy falls on one of the backstage guys.  Helms disappears, then The Hurricane helps the other backstage guys left the heavy thing.  He disappears, then Helms reappears with Henry and Atlas.  Yeah…  Commercials!

Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) & Jack Swagger vs. ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer & Christian.  Christian and Swagger lock up.  Swagger does his amateur stuff.  Dreamer tags in.  He and Christian don’t seem to be at each other’s throats this week.  Henry tags in.  Dreamer manages to drop him.  Dreamer and Christian hit dives on Henry and Swagger, respectively.  Commercials!  Back!  Christian fights off Swagger and nails a European uppercut, then tags in Dreamer.  Dreamer cleans house.  Swagger gets some heat on him.  Tags on both sides.  Christian tries to knock down Henry, and finally does after 2 missile dropkicks.  Cover gets 2.  Swagger runs in and gets taken out by Christian.  Christian avoids the World’s Strongest Slam and goes for a sunset flip.  Swagger tags in.  Christian avoids Henry’s butt drop.  Christian counters the Doctor Bomb with a reverse cradle for 2.  Killswitch on Swagger.  Atlas pulls Swagger’s foot under the ropes and points it out to the ref.  Dreamer disposes of Atlas.  Henry slams Christian into the post.  Swagger hits the Doctor Bomb for the pin at 13:03.  Alright match.  Henry drops Dreamer, then hits the World’s Strongest Slam on Swagger for good measure.  Henry looks strong heading into the Championship Scramble Match!

Fin.  Alright show.

WWE open, hype for the main event (Christian & Kane vs. Regal & Zeke), ECW open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Josh Matthews and Byron Saxton are our hosts.

William Regal is already in the ring.  He introduces “the next ECW Champion,” Ezekiel Jackson.  Zeke cuts a promo on Christian.  Christian comes out to retort and makes a Pulp Fiction reference, which makes me happy.  They go back and forth, eventually leading to…

ECW Champion Christian & Kane vs. William Regal & Ezekiel Jackson.  JIP.  Christian and Regal go at it, which is always good times.  The big guys tag in and have their big guy fight.  Christian tags in and tries to out-quick Zeke, but eventually gets caught and powerslammed.  Kane tags in and the bad guys start getting heat on him.  Christian comes in and tries to chop down big Zeke.  Christian hits a missile dropkick for 2, then goes for the Killswitch but fails.  Christian hits his reverse DDT, knocks Regal to the floor, throws Zeke out, and hits a dive out onto them.  Commercial.  Kane tags Christian back in and Zeke throws Christian out of the ring.  Christian brawls with Regal, then gets dropped by Zeke.  The bad guys get heat on Christian.  Kane gets the hot tag and runs wild on Regal.  Kane hits the diving clothesline and goes for the chokeslam, but Zeke interrupts.  Christian tags in and Kane throws him onto Zeke.  Kane and Zeke brawl outside.  Regal counters Christian’s Killswitch and hits an Exploder.  Zeke sends Kane into the steps.  Christian avoids the knee trembler and goes for the Killswitch, but Zeke tags in mid-move and hits his uranage on Christian for the pin in about 18 minutes.  Okay match.

Matthews and Saxton hype the Royal Rumble card, followed by the great Rumble “By the numbers” video.

Shelton Benjamin cuts a promo about the Rumble match, but gets jumped midway through by Vance Archer.

Zack Ryder comes out with Rosa Mendez for his match.  They show last week’s incident where Rosa berated Savannah, who was saved by The Hurricane.

Zack Ryder (w/ Rosa Mendez), Trent Barreta, & Caylen Croft vs. The Hurricane, Goldust, & Yoshi Tatsu.  Goldust and Croft start.  Hurricane tags in and gets a near fall on Croft.  Ryder tags in and goes at it with his rival, Hurricane.  Hurricane low bridges Ryder out of the ring.  Ryder and Croft jump in, but get run out by the other faces.  Commercials.  Man, what a long commercial break.  Finally back to action, with Yoshi and Croft having a fine exchange.  Goldust tags in and hammers Croft.  Barreta and Hurricane tag in and go at it.  Hurricane hits a nice hurricanrana (a term I never use, but it fits here).  Barreta bails to avoid the Shining Black, then Hurricane dives on him.  Ryder distracts Hurricane to let the heels get the advantage, then tags in to administer some punishment.  Ryder hits the Rough Ryder, hammer Hurricane some more, and tags in Croft.  Hurricane plays face in peril for a while until he manages to drop Croft with the Shining Black and make the hot tag to Yoshi, who runs wild on Barreta.  Yoshi hits a spinning kick off the top on Barreta, but Ryder saves.  Brief clusterfuck ensues, then Yoshi drops Barreta with another kick for the pin in 14:54.  Good little match to cap off a fun show.

WWE open, ECW Homecoming highlights, ECW open.  Tonight, Christian takes on William Regal!  YES!

Savannah introduces Tony Atlas, who introduces Santino Marella, guest host of tonight’s Abraham Washington Show.  Santino and Atlas banter.  Santino introduces his guest, babyface Vladimir Kozlov.  I hope Kozlov throws out an “I LOVE DOUBLE DOUBLE E” for old time’s sake.  Kozlov said he was  in a Ukrainian biker gang until someone ran over his face.   They go in in their hard to understand accents.  Comedy gold here.  Santino suggests that they become a tag team.  Kozlov says no.  He asks the crowd.  Crowd also says no.  Santino ends the show early.

Goldust and Yoshi Tatsu are headed our way!

Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu vs. Trent Barreta & Caylen Croft.  Goldust goes with both.  Tatsu tags in and Croft and Barreta manage to get the advantage on him and work him over.  Yoshi plays face in peril and finally makes the hot tag to Goldust.  Goldust hits the snap powerslam on Croft.  Barreta saves.  Goldust cradles Croft.  Barreta nails him while the ref’s back is turned, allowing Croft to get the pin in 6:13.  Good little tag match.  Apologies for skimping so much on the match details.

Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendez are headed our way!

Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendez do indeed come to the ring.  He says since he beat The Hurricane last week, he now wants to be referred to as the new heart and soul superhero of ECW.  He has Savannah announce his as such.  Twice.  Rosa yells at her in Spanish.  The Hurricane runs out and hits a diving cross body on Ryder.  Hurricane kisses Savannah’s hand.

Christian vs. Regal TONIGHT!  Awesome!

Josh Matthews and Byron Saxton hype the Royal Rumble card.  Then, they show clips of the recent issues between Shelton Benjamin and Vance Archer.  Those two will meet this Thursday on Superstars.

Non-Title: ECW Champion Christian vs. William Regal (w/ Ezekiel Jackson).  As always, they wrestle, and it’s good.  Regal, awesome motherfucker that he is, stretches Christian’s arm.  Regal ends up on the floor and Christian hits him with a baseball slide dropkick, then brings him back in.  Christian gets distracted by Jackson looking at him.  Commercials.  They continue wrestling, and it’s still good.  Regal counters a backslide and evilly mauls Christian.  Christian fights back.  Regal drops him with an elbow smash for 2.  Christian goes for the Killswitch.  Regal counters and hits an Exploder.  Regal kicks Christian’s head into the post.  Ouch.  Regal continues to fuck Christian’s shit all up.  Christian makes his comeback and hits a tornado DDT for 2.  Regal avoids a missile dropkick and goes for the knee trembler.  Christian catches him with a jackknife hold for 2.  Christian does his springboard sunset flip.  Regal drops him with a blow for a 2 count.  Christian dropkicks Regal in the corner, then hits a diving European uppercut.  Christian goes for the Killswitch again.  Regal counters him.  Christian throws Regal out of the ring and prepares to dive on him.  Jackson runs in and attacks Christian to cause the DQ at 16:12.  A good match between these two as always.  Regal and Jackson beat down Christian as the show ends.

Sorry for the poor review this week.  I have things on my mind.
