May 8, 2007

When ECW on Sci Fi went off the air last week, Rob Van Dam had earned a match against ECW World Champion Mr. McMahon. This week, however, the Chairman has used his power to change things up a bit. has learned that the Chairman and company plan on coming to ECW this week to once and for all kill the original spirit of ECW – Rob Van Dam. Apparently, Mr. McMahon had no intentions of ever going one-on-one with RVD.

“I knew this was going to happen,” RVD told after hearing the news. “I knew that Mr. McMahon wasn’t going to go one-on-one with me. If Shane and Umaga are going to be there, then I’m challenging all three of them.”

And so it will now be RVD against the ECW World Champion, Shane McMahon & Umaga. Will the Chairman, his son and the Samoan Bulldozer succeed in destroying the spirit of ECW?

Also, The New Breed appeared to implode last week when Kevin Thorn quit following a loss to CM Punk and the unknown Major Brothers upset Marcus Cor Von & Matt Striker. An enraged Elijah Burke berated Striker. The Extreme Educator endured the scolding while The Alpha Male only walked away. Will Elijah Burke be able to keep his faction from falling apart?

And who are the Major Brothers? They were unknowns when ECW on Sci Fi began last week. A surprise victory over Cor Von & Striker made them mysterious new Superstars by the end of show. Will we learn more about the brothers and will they continue their winning ways?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on ECW on Sci Fi Tuesday at 10/9 CT.
