WWE: Official ECW TV Preview

Who’s No. 1?
August 15, 2006

As ECW heads to Washington, D.C. this week, the No. 1 Contender for the ECW World Title is still undetermined…but that will all change in the nation’s capital.

Last week, Sabu and Kurt Angle squared off for that honor, but the shocking return of Rob Van Dam spoiled the match. RVD interrupted and attacked both men with a chair, making a statement that he is back and hungry for the ECW World Title as well.

As a result, there will be a No. 1 Contender Triple Threat Ladder Match this week to solve the dilemma. Angle, Sabu and Van Dam will all participate, and the winner will go on to face Big Show at SummerSlam for the ECW World Title. Which of these three incredible athletes will head to Boston as the No. 1 Contender?

Also last week, Paul Heyman once again had his personal security force attack Tommy Dreamer, leading to him losing a match against Mike Knox. When Sandman came out to help his fallen friend, he found himself in a Handicap Match against Knox & Test. Will there be another chapter written in the war between Heyman and Dreamer (and possibly now Sandman) in the nation’s capital?

Plus, CM Punk thanked the fans last week for the reception he received in the Hammerstein Ballroom. Punk said that it was no longer about the price he paid to get to ECW, but rather the future and what it holds. Tuesday night, it holds his second match on ECW on Sci Fi; who will challenge the straight-edge Extremist this time?

Find out all this and more Tuesday night at 10/9 CT only on Sci Fi.
