Matt Striker really needed to have the chance to give his nicknames to everyone in the battle royal. "Custom Muscle" Charlie Haas may be the greatest nickname ever.

The commentary was something else, what with Striker's obnoxiously sweet compliments towards Alicia Fox and Grisham likening Tyson Kidd's offense to a button-mashing wrestling video game.

Kidd's springboard elbow drop was sooo pretty.

I wouldn't complain at all if Primo got drafted to ECW.

Needs more Swagger.

After the past few weeks of Christian and Swagger, tonight was a bit of a letdown, but not by much. ECW is easily the best paced, best booked product WWE has right now.

Only saw the battle royal.

They let fuckin' R-Truth take forever to rap into the ring. There were 15 other guys there waiting for this guy to finish his stupid rap. Get in the ring already!

It still amazes me how the Great Khali got over as a babyface. There were boos when he was eliminated. Boos! Do any of these people stop to think about what exactly Khali would do in a Money in the Bank match except stink up the joint?

William Regal, as ever, deserves better.

I liked the brief Christian vs. R-Truth TNA escapee showdown during the final four.

Christian wrote the book on see-saw offense using his legs and the ropes. He's my pick for Mr. Money in the Bank 2009.

It would have been out of character if Carlito's response at the end of Primo's match was anything other than "He stole my move!".

I like how DJ Gabriel's entrance is to jump straight over the bottom rope from the floor, i hadn't noticed that before. It's hard to take him seriously with his puppy dog children's TV presenter face though. He had a nice wheelbarrow matt slam thing that seemed to kill the back of Kidd's head. I'm getting won over by both of them.

ECW needs less 5 minutes recaps of what happened on RAW 1 day ago, and Wrestlemania 15 years ago. You notice how much more time is wasted in just an hour. Also i'm fairly sure i get fewer ad breaks than the original American broadcast, some of you guys must have nothing but recaps. Did You Know?s and old promos between adverts occasionally.

Can you think of any better way to stick it to obnoxious know-it-all types then to arbitrarily root for the person they say they shouldn't?

DJ Gabriel is growing on me too, although I still think he looks like Frankie Nunez on steroids...which is somewhat disturbing.

And I'll second the Matt Striker love on commentary. ECW is the show that I only fast-forward the commercials for.

And to finish Matt's commentary...the Three Amigos were Dusty Bottoms, Lucky Day, and Ned Nederlander. I knew what you were talking about Matt...I knew.

I know I shouldn't know this, but I was quite disturbed when Matt Striker started quoting Katy Perry last night. I believe it was in reference to Alicia Fox.

ECW for a long time was something I DVRed and didnt watch, but lately, it's been must watch TV. It's becoming a very fast hour of TV.

And Christian in MITB, I like it.

Was Charlie Haas wrestling as Charlie Haas? Or, was he continuing his entertaining but ultimately inane parody gimmick?

He was just Charlie Haas. During the battle royal, Striker referred to him as Custom Muscle Charlie Haas. I thought it was simply an insanely cool nickname, given his gimmick. But I should have Googled before I started the thread. Turns out Custom Muscle is the name of Charlie's (and wife Jackie Gayda-Haas') nutrition store (custom-muscle.com). My bad.

ECW has been close to must-watch levels for quite some time due to the good pacing of the show and some good booking. I suppose people are now beginning to notice it more since it has Christian and Swagger on it, and Boogeyman is gone, and Ortiz is on his way out (not based on fact, just wishful thinking).

Jax sure likes to show up early and en masse for their shows. I didn't remember the crowd being that hot for Raw.

The Miz is still heading towards being one of the best workers in the business. Adding Head Over Heels, he now has two corner moves, a trademark, and two finishers. Not bad for a tag man. Oh, and I guess Primo is ok too.

The only thing that shut up John and Carlito was Todd's reveal that Primo liked burritos.

This show also seemed like a test to see if this brand could survive without Swagger. I hope he doesn't go, but it seems inevitable.

They sounded like the loudest pro-Punk audience on TV.

It's way too early and it would be a shame if they did.

He worked 2 All Japan shows in August of 2002, both 5 minute squash matches against Taiyo Kea and Satoshi Kojima. He followed that up with a match in November for WRESTLE-1 against Rick Steiner.
