The show opened with an interview segment. Tiffany brought out both Shelton Benjamin and Christian, who both sold the affects of Sunday’s ladder match. It’s relieving to know they were able to play the roles of crotch-chopping geeks to perfection last night, though. The two men shook hands and Shelton asked for a rematch. Regal, Jackson & Kozlov interrupted. Regal made fun of Tiffany’s voice and expressed his outrage that Tiffany was allowing a monster like Kane back on ECW. Tiffany then introduced a new concept for the show: each week a former ECW champion would return to participate in a tournament match where the winner would get a chance to wrestle Christian for the ECW championship at Royal Rumble. That’s a ploy to try and raise the sagging ratings of this show. Hopefully, it leads to either John Morrison or CM Punk winning the tournament. She announced the first two matches for tonight: Kane v. Zack Ryder and Ezekiel Jackson v. Vladimir Kozlov (yikes). There were two basic problems with this setup though: no brackets were announced so there’s nothing to look forward to and this further degrades what little the brand split means. And Tiffany’s delivery didn’t help any either.

The Hurricane v. the Ripper
By the way, Savannah is this show’s new ring announcer. Hurricane hit an arm drag to start. Ripper recovered to send Hurricane to the floor and there used a back suplex onto the barrier. Hurricane fought out of a chin lock but was then put down by a lariat. Ripper tried to come off the top but Hurricane caught him coming down. Hurricane then hit a huracanrana for a near fall. He missed a shining wizard but came back and hit a tornado DDT. He then unmasked Ripper to reveal Burchill under the hood. Hurricane then hit Burchill with a shining wizard to win the match and send Burchill away from ECW (again). This was a pretty good four minute match.
Hurricane d. Ripper, Pin, 4:01, **.
