WWE: Official ECW on Sci Fi Preview

Originals strike back
October 17, 2006

After months of facing Paul Heyman’s roadblocks including the monstrous Test and malicious Hardcore Holly, Rob Van Dam has clawed his way to the apex of ECW. This Tuesday on ECW on Sci Fi, RVD will need to make the most of what could be his last opportunity to shine against Big Show. With a win, he is promised a shot at the ECW World Title. If he loses, Heyman vows RVD has officially run out of chances at becoming ECW World Champion. Can Van Dam finally slay the dominant monster Big Show?

The last ECW on Sci Fi was a big night for ECW Originals. Sandman got the win for his team in the Six-Man Tag Team Match as he, Sabu and RVD disposed of Matt Striker, Test and the Extreme Giant. Can the Originals carry their success over the new breed into next week?

One Original – Sandman – will finally meet his foe, Matt Striker in a most fitting type of match: a Singapore Cane-on-a-Pole Match. How will Striker respond to being pinned by the oft-inebriated Sandman when they square off? With the educator clearly out of his element and the cane legal, how extreme will Sandman get?

Also, Tommy Dreamer got revenge on ECW on Sci Fi when he beat Kevin Thorn. The series is tied at 1-1 between these two Extremists. Will this rivalry continue until ECW fans see a clear-cut winner?

CM Punk also recorded another impressive victory in a highly athletic contest with Rene Dupree. As the straightedge Extremist’s streak continues, could Mike Knox be watching? With his girlfriend participating in Extreme Strip Poker, Knox was not seen on ECW on Sci Fi, but one can be sure that if Kelly and Punk are in the same vicinity, Knox will not be far behind.
