WWE: ECW on SciFi Results 24/7/07



ECW kicked off with Ring announcer Justin Roberts reading a self-serving (and obviously self-written) introduction for "the face of Extreme", ECW Champion John Morrison. Morrison talked about how he was going to "make believers" out of the fans, then recited a poem about how CM Punk would now be "surrounded by darkness". Morrison said Punk would never get another title shot, and that he was "moving onwards and upwards".

Morrison said he was a fighting champion, and that he would give someone a chance to claim "15 minutes of fame". Morrison said if anyone could either beat him or last 15 minutes in a non-title match, he would grant them a title bout. Morrison said he had a tag match later on, but he ran into someone backstage that intimidated him and deserves a shot at "15 minutes of fame". Morrison said this person was from Fresno, California. A much smaller wrestler, who I assume is a local independent wrestler, came out. They started the clock, and Morrison gave him a headbutt. We never even heard what this guy’s name was. Morrison took off his jacket, hit a corkscrew neckbreaker, and beat him in 34 seconds. Morrison got on the mic and said that he had tried his best, but he "couldn’t get the job done". Morrison said that was his "brush with greatness" and walked off.

A Triple H promo aired. He’s returning at Summerslam, in case you didn’t know.

Kevin Thorn vs. Stevie Richards.

The ring announcer calls him "Stevie". The trunks say "Stevie". The graphic says "Steven". Thorn kicked Richards in the gut and pounded him down, then whipped Richards into the turnbuckles. Thorn went for a backdrop, but Richards kicked Thorn, then kicked him in the leg, then dropkicked him in the face. Thorn rolled outside to regroup. Thorn got on the apron and Richards shoulderblocked him to the floor. Richards got out on the apron and Thorn knocked out his legs, sending Richards crashing to the floor. Thorn threw Richards back into the ring and put him in a over-the-shoulder backbreaker, then dropped down to his knees. Thorn slammed Richards, then picked him up and slammed him again.

Thorn dropped an elbow to the lower back for a one count. Richards tried to fight back with punches, but Thorn hit a knee to the gut and pounded Richards in a corner. Richards hit a pair of kicks to the gut, then some kicks to the leg. Thorn then caught a kick and hit a spinebuster, but Richards got his shoulder up at two. Thorn sat Richards on the top turnbuckle, then went for a Razor’s Edge, but Stevie slipped out of it and grabbed a backslide for the three count at the four minute mark.

Winner: Stevie Richards.

Yes, for the first time in the history of ECW on Sci Fi, Stevie Richards has won a match. Tazz credited Richards’ orange and black trunks, which Styles had made fun of earlier.

They showed clips of Extreme Expose dancing for The Miz last week.

The Miz came out and talked about how he is a "chick magnet". He invited Extreme Expose to come out and watch him in action. Kelly, Brooke and Layla came out and sat at ringside.

The Miz vs. Nunzio.

They traded waistlocks and headlocks at the start, then Miz hit a shoulderblock, but Nunzio swept the leg for a two count. Miz came back with a knee to the gut and a stomp, but Nunzio tripped him with a drop toe hold. Miz ran out of the ring, but Nunzio gave chase. Miz got in the ring, but Nunzio hit a shoulderblock from the apron and a top rope bodypress for a two count. Nunzio missed an avalanche in the corner and got hung up on the top rope, and Miz kicked him in the gut. Miz got a two count, then hit some knees to the gut. Miz hit a clothesline in the corner for a two count. Miz applied a bodyscissors with a chinlock. Nunzio bridged back in it for a two count. Miz hit some fists and forearms, then jumped off the second rope. Nunzio got his foot up, but Miz caught it and landed on his feet. Miz threw Nunzio’s leg back, but Nunzio rolled to his feet and hit a series of forearms. Nunzio hit the Sicilian Slice (second rope Rocker Dropper), but Miz kicked out at two. Miz hit a legsweep into a faceplant. Miz then hit a kneelift into a neckbreaker for the pin at the three minute mark.

Winner: The Miz.

Miz said he had a surprise for Extreme Expose and invited them into the ring. He had them play music, and Miz danced with Extreme Expose. They then cut to Big Daddy V getting ready to wrestle. I’m not sure which visual was more disturbing, Miz’ dancing or Big Daddy V with no shirt on.

Big Daddy V vs. Jimmy Cruz & Victor Delvino.

They showed a clip of Big Daddy V laying out the Boogeyman two weeks ago. Matt Striker joined the announcers. We never found out who was who on the opposition, not that it mattered. Big Daddy V swatted both men around, then took down one of them with a side mare. V press slammed the other opponent, then flung him out of the ring. V hit the other man with some forearms and chops, then a planted him with a Samoan Drop. Big Daddy V scooped up the other man with one hand and threw him down. V piled them in a corner and hit an avalanche on them. Big Daddy V slammed one of them, then gave the other man a sidewalk slam, planting him on top of his partner for the win in two minutes.

Winner: Big Daddy V.
