The finish of the Chris Benoit and CM Punk vs. Marcus Cor Von and Elijah Burke on ECW television was apparently changed several times during the day. They agreed on Benoit going over with his sharpshooter, but the referee (calling the action as a shoot) disqualified Cor Von for not leaving the ring by his allowed five count.
“Survivor: China,” which will feature WWE diva Ashley Massaro will air on Thursday nights @ 8PM. CBS contacted WWE about using a superstar. Both Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn supported Ashley getting the nod. The filming of the program will keep Ashley away from WWE television until the end of the year, which explains her suspension. On a side note, reports suggest that sales for Massaro’s Playboy magazine were disappointing.
Part of the reason Brian Kendrick and Paul London were drafted to Raw during the supplemental draft is due to London’s internal heat for security leaks. London told a fan about Ashley doing “Survivor,” which was supposed to be a secret and it ended up all over the internet. The plan for Kendrick and London is to put over Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch, and other heel tag teams.
