WWE: Official ECW on Sci Fi Preview (02/01/07)

Preview: Challenging the champion
January 2, 2007

As decided by you, the ECW fans, Rob Van Dam will challenge Lashley for the ECW World Title on Tuesday night on the very first ECW on Sci Fi of 2007. Will Lashley, who has rolled through every obstacle thrown in his path, emerge victorious from yet another major challenge or will the new year bring in a new champion?

The three poll candidates – RVD, Test and Sabu – faced each other in a Triple Threat Match on the last ECW on Sci Fi. Test made a case why he should be the man to challenge Lashley for the gold when he pinned Sabu. Still, it is RVD who gets to move forward with a title opportunity. Could this contest yield new rivalries between these frustrated Extremists who haven’t reached the goal they set since December to Dismember?

ECW on Sci Fi proved to be a huge night with the in-ring debut of The Great Khali. The Punjabi giant showed no mercy as Shannon Moore became the first of what is sure to be a long list of victims. How much damage can the tandem of Khali and Daivari create?

Also, the rivalry between CM Punk and Hardcore Holly heated up as Holly challenged Punk to make him tap out in three minutes. Punk locked him in the Anaconda Vise, but Holly held on without conceding. What else could develop between these two adversaries?

Find out the answers Tuesday when live action returns to ECW on Sci Fi at 10/9 CT.
