ECW kicked off with The Abraham Washington Show as WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas introduced the host of the show, Abraham Washington, who came out and proclaimed that he is the "most entertaining" Superstar in the WWE before introducing his guest, the General Manager of ECW, Tiffany! The GM came out and Abe asked Tiffany about the lack of "impact" that ECW had at Bragging Rights. "The Beautiful Boss" stated that ECW was influential at Bragging Rights in the way that guys like Kofi Kingston & John Morrison got their start in ECW before moving on to RAW and SmackDown, respectively. The GM then delivers a "guarantee" that ECW will have a "big impact" at next year’s Bragging Rights event! When questioned about Sheamus leaving ECW for RAW, Tiffany revealed that "The Celtic Warrior" asked her if he could go to RAW and she agreed, but only if Sheamus had one last match against Shelton Benjamin! Abraham then asked Tiffany about her injured arm, but Tiffany’s answer was interrupted by William Regal and his "ruthless roundtable" of Ezekiel Jackson & Vladimir Kozlov! Once again, Regal asked Tiffany for another opportunity at the ECW Championship, which Tiffany refused; telling Regal that he will not get a title shot that night and may never get a title shot again! After Tiffany exits, William Regal snaps and destroys the set of The Abraham Washington Show!
As promised, the newest RAW Superstar, Sheamus, had his final match on ECW and was able to pull of an impressive victory over recent rival Shelton Benjamin! With two wins on back-to-back nights, will Sheamus continue his dominance on RAW?
Backstage, Gregory Helms is confronted by Paul Burchill and his sister, Katie Lea Burchill. "The Ripper" tells Helms to tell his "friend", The Hurricane to meet him in the ring next week, to which Helms states that Hurricane "will be there"! What does Paul Burchill have in store for The Hurricane next week?
Then it was time for the main event as Christian defended the ECW Title against his protégé as of late, Yoshi Tatsu. While the two Superstars had an incredible match, it was the veteran Christian who was able to hit the Killswitch and retain the title! After the match, Christian tended to Tatsu, but both men were attacked by Ezekiel Jackson & Vladimir Kozlov! As William Regal entered the ring, Regal’s cohorts sent Yoshi Tatsu out of the ring and focused their attack on Christian, leaving the ECW Champion laid out in the ring! William Regal then stood over the fallen champion with the ECW Title in hand. How will Tiffany respond to the actions of Regal and company? How will Christian & Yoshi Tatsu react?
