Very Detailed Off-Air Raw Notes: Batista Heat, HBK & More!

Thanks to Wesley Marquis for sending in this live report:

As reported earlier, there were two dark matches last night. In the first one, Sheamus defeated Jamie Noble in a match which was pretty much one sided and ended with Sheamus hitting his backbreaker finisher on Noble.  There was very little fan response to this match. 

We next saw Christian taking on William Regal in a match for the ECW championship.  Christian’s home town fans popped quite loudly for him and were really into this bout which ended after Christian hitting the Killswitch on Regal for the victory.  I have to say that the Killswitch looked botched and it looked like Regal didn’t land properly, although not in a way that would cause him injury. 

Jillian then announced the following match was being taped for Superstars on WGN America.  It’s between Santino Marella and Chris Masters.  A funny moment happened in this match where Chris Masters put Santino in a bear hug.  Santino tried to do the classic escape attempt were you put your arm inside of the bear hug.  He put both arms in and got trapped.  Funny expression on his face which was more comedic relief than pain.
