WWE: Official ECW TV Preview

Music City gets extreme
August 8, 2006

ECW on Sci Fi will be live this week from Nashville, Tenn., which is known as “Music City USA.” But after the events of the past few weeks, will the fans end up seeing a massacre in Music City?

In the main event, Kurt Angle will meet Sabu one on one for the first time ever in a No. 1 Contender’s Match. The winner will become top contender to Big Show and the ECW World Title, an opportunity that both men no doubt covet wholeheartedly. In fact, this is a chance Sabu has been craving for several weeks.

Last week, Paul Heyman ordered Sabu to leave the Hammerstein Ballroom after once again denying his request for a match against Big Show. However, Sabu didn’t obey Heyman’s orders; he came to the ring after Big Show’s match with Batista, attacking the champion with a chair and sending him crashing through a table at ringside.

One needs only to ask Tommy Dreamer or Little Guido what can happen when you are on Heyman’s bad side. While he may be on a quest for a chance at the ECW World Title, will Sabu find himself in the same position…or better yet, will the Suicidal, Homicidal, Genocidal, Death-Defying Maniac care?

Plus, CM Punk made an impressive debut last week, defeating Justin Credible. The fans at Hammerstein Ballroom seemed to be behind the straight-edge Extremist; will he be in action this week to try and continue that momentum?

Tune into ECW on Sci Fi at 10/9 CT Tuesday night to find out.
