Backstage, Tommy Dreamer is being interviewed by the newest ECW interviewer- Courtney Taylor, but the first interview of the inquiring beauty was interrupted by the #1 Contender for the ECW Title, William Regal, who initiated a heinous assault on the "ECW Original" by Regal and "The Moscow Mauler" Vladimir Kozlov. With Kozlov holding Dreamer in place, Regal delivered a vile knee right to the skull of Dreamer! Will Dreamer be in any kind of condition to compete alongside Christian in the main event?
Abraham Washington made an appearance on ECW to present The Abraham Washington Show. The confident talk show host proclaimed that he is the "King of Late Night" and then introduced his guest- "The Bizarre One" Goldust. Goldust came out and joined A.W. on the show and the host wasted no time in mocking Goldust’s unfortunate convulsions and speech problems due to an electrocution he sustained several years ago. Abraham then reveals that he has a second guest and brings out "The Celtic Warrior" Sheamus! Sheamus comes out and tells his bitter rival, Goldust, that Goldust’s win on Superstars last week was "lucky". Sheamus then called Goldust a "gold freak", which resulted in the two ECW Superstars going face-to-face as Abraham Washington called the show to a close. What will happen next between the proud Irishman and the proud wrestling veteran?
"The Long Island Loudmouth" Zack Ryder was in action on ECW, picking up a big win over "The Japanese Buzzsaw" Yoshi Tatsu.
Backstage, ECW General Manager Tiffany reveals that Tommy Dreamer will be unable to be Christian’s partner in the main event due to a concussion! Tiffany then announced the ECW Champion could choose any partner he wanted to replace Dreamer.
Before the main event, it was announced that William Regal will get his shot at the ECW Championship as he challenges Christian for the title this Sunday at SummerSlam!
Then it was time for the main event as ECW Champion Christian was set to face his #1 Contender William Regal & "The Moscow Mauler" Vladimir Kozlov in a tag team match, but who would "The Proprietor of the Peepulation" select as his partner? It turned out to be none other than "The Harlem Nightmare" himself, Ezekiel Jackson! After weeks of playing games of one upsmanship, "Big Zeke" and Vladimir Kozlov might finally get their hands on each other. However, during the match, in a huge shocker, Ezekiel Jackson turned on Christian and planted the ECW Champion with Total Domination! Ezekiel then instructed William Regal to take the pin to win the match for Regal & Kozlov! After the match, both Ezekiel & Kozlov decimated Christian in the center of the ring. At the end of the mayhem, William Regal, Vladimir Kozlov, & Ezekiel Jackson stood tall as a seemingly unstoppable trio. With both Vladimir Kozlov & Ezekiel Jackson on the side of William Regal, does Christian stand a chance of keeping the ECW Championship this Sunday or will Regal’s "master plan" end with Regal being crowned the new ECW Champion?
