IN THE RING
Matt Hardy & Fit Finlay (w/Hornswoggle) + Mark Henry & Tony Atlas: Fit Finlay said Matt Hardy has taken on all comers since becoming ECW champion, except him. Finlay challenged Hardy to a title match, but before Hardy could accept, they were interrupted by Mark Henry & Tony Atlas. Mark Henry said nobody is getting a title shot before him, but Finlay said nobody wants to see Henry getting another title match (as was evident at Cyber Sunday). Finlay & Henry exchanged words and challenged each other to a fight right then and there. Theodore Long came out and booked Finlay vs. Henry tonight with the winner facing Matt Hardy next week!
Ricky Ortiz defeated Jon Davis: Jon Davis is a veteran of the Florida independent circuit, having his most success in Full Impact Pro as a member of the Dark City Fight Club with Kory Chavis (who has been on TNA a few times). With this victory, Ricky Ortiz is 6-0 in singles matches on ECW television.
IN THE RING
Jack Swagger + Tommy Dreamer: Jack Swagger started by saying Tommy Dreamer was bragging until he beat him in a match last week. Swagger questioned what Dreamer has done in his 19 years in the business. Swagger said Dreamer made his mark when some drunk named Sandman was beating him with a kendo stick. Swagger talked about Dreamer’s 30-minute reign as ECW champion and brought out an original ECW replica belt and threw it in the crash can. Swagger brought out a picture of Beulah McGillicutty and told her that he husband is a failure which means their kids will probably grow up to be failures. Swagger said there is hope, if they find a roll model like the “All-American American” Jack Swagger. Tommy Dreamer hit the ring and cracked Jack Swagger with a kendo stick until Swagger quickly retreated!
