WWE: ECW on SciFi Preview (5/6/07)

The ECW World Title returned home to Bobby Lashley at One Night Stand. Does the Chairman have something up his sleeve for Lashley after having the gold taken away from him?

The last ECW on Sci Fi was the beginning of a mission for Randy Orton. The Legend Killer plowed through Tommy Dreamer in the main event, then made clear that Rob Van Dam is next on his list. Orton didn’t receive his nickname without reason. Will ECW’s legend, carried by the ECW Originals, join his past victims? If One Night Stand is any indictation, with RVD suffering a beating and a concussion after his Stretcher Match with Orton, then the Originals have something to worry about.

One Night Stand also saw CM Punk put Elijah Burke in his place for the second straight pay-per-view event. Though Punk emerged victorious in the Six-Man Tag Team Tables Match, it didn’t come without controversy. Matt Striker was used by Punk as a weapon to bring Burke through the table. How will this affect the growing tension within the New Breed?
