ECW gets dirty

July 29, 2008

The Land of the Extreme has seen its share of firsts, but when John Morrison & The Miz present their first-ever live edition of WWE.com’s “The Dirt Sheet” with guests ECW Champion Mark Henry and Matt Hardy, it’s possible that the Land of the Extreme could be lifted at its hardcore roots.

With SummerSlam mere weeks away, Henry is on a mission to prove his Extreme strength and dominance will not falter. But No. 1 contender Hardy is not fazed by Henryâ<80><99>s prowess, and the former United States Champion is ready to fight for the ECW gold at the Biggest Blockbuster of the Summer. How will this collision course intersect with the sophomoric yet scathingly comedic antics of Miz & Morrison? What will the Shaman of Sexy and self-proclaimed “chick magnet” have to say on live television? (Watch episodes of WWE.com’s “Dirt Sheet” now)

Moreover, who will be ECWâ<80><99>s true dominant force â<80>” the Worldâ<80><99>s Strongest Champion, Henry, or his determined challenger, Hardy? Will the Land of the Extreme crown a new king at SummerSlam or will Henry retain his Extreme gold? And, will anyone stand in the way of Henry and Hardy on the road to SummerSlam?

Former ECW General Manager Armando Estrada hasn’t exactly had an ideal post-GM career in the ring. He’s looking for one more chance at an ECW contract and current GM Theodore Long has agreed to give it to him in a match against ECW Original Tommy Dreamer, as seen in an AT&T Mobile exclusive video. Will Estrada defeat Dreamer and officially become an ECW Superstar? Or does he need to start looking for a new career? (Watch the match being made)

Ricky Ortiz is quickly making a name for himself on ECW. As part of General Manager Theodore Longâ<80><99>s New Superstar Initiative, Ortiz is undefeated with a 2-0 record, recently defeating Chavo Guerrero by disqualification. Although after his win, Guerrero hit Ortiz with frog splash. The self-proclaimed â<80><9c>Mexican Warriorâ<80><99>sâ<80> gloating ran short, though, when Evan Bourne ran into the ring to attack Guerrero.

Will Ortizâ<80><99>s winning streak continue? Will high-flying Bourne continue to torment Guerrero? How will Bam Neely continue to perform as Guerreroâ<80><99>s bodyguard?

Find out the answers to these questions and more by tuning into ECW on Sci Fi, Tuesday at 10/9 CT, and SummerSlam, live, and only on pay-per-view, Aug. 17 at 8/7 CT.
