The big news: ECW has a new world championship belt. And it kicks ass.




It's much larger than the original belt, and I like the silver a lot. It looks great on Mark Henry.

However, if you're gonna caption a photo about Henry and his lovely new belt, you will have to avoid the cliches:



The secondary news: Matt Hardy is the No.1 contender for the belt and will get his shot at SummerSlam.

The tertiary news: Tommy Dreamer kill-ified Colin last night in the first match. Is the angle over?

That is a handsome belt. Almost looks like a monochromatic version of the new TNA belt.

They fortunately skipped the "Evan Bourne talks cheesily about himself in a pre-taped interview" thing this week, which was a good idea.

The show was good in general. I even liked the 4-way match, and I usually hate those because it seems like a big clusterfuck. But these guys made it work, so hats off to them.

You're a chick magnet. You're Michael the Miz. Look at that hat. I wish I could get coats this nice for $3000. I care about the environment, say no more.

"Farm-raised jackal" cracked me up. Morrison has to move back to RAW immediately.

Also, I always forget to add the logo to new threads. I'm an idiot.

The new ECW Title belt reminded me a lot of Hulk Hogan's 1985 WWF Title belt:

http://www.midwestwrestling.com/championshipbelts2/oldwwf.htm

It was a curious thing: I hated the new belt instantly on sight and yet after staring at it during the Mark Henry, Tony Atlas, Colin Delaney promo segment, I came to like it by the segment's end.

It was very pleasant watching Tommy Dreamer win a squash match in Philadelphia. Nice to see Tommy win decisively.

Matt Hardy's "I believe everything happens for a reason" promo made my eyes roll backwards by its banality.

The fatal four way main event was pretty outstanding. Even the crowd got way into it midway through. Less outstanding was the fact that between Hardy, Morrison and Miz, three of the most godawful ugly pairs of pants/shorts were on display.

Whatever Tiffany's big idea was, she better not have told it to Ricky Ortiz. I'll kill him if he knows.

So they're hyping a RICKY ORTIZ match a week in advance. I smell ratings swing!

The main event was great and one of the better matches on ECW lately.

A Henry/Hardy feud does nothing for me.

The new ECW title is okay, I thought it was ugly at first but it's growing on me.

Now let's take the next step and get a new design for the WWE title belt. Cena isn't the champion and is on a different brand, so the spinner can be retired.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard! Good luck to those down south.



And of course, that belt is just a ripoff of Reggie Parks's beautiful old NWA TV title.

This new ECW belt? Wish I had more hands...so I could give that strap four thumbs down. Fugly. God-awful. SmackDown!-Divas-title bad.

Between the overarching WWE banner and the all-nickel plate job, this belt couldn't scream "SECONDARY TITLE" more if it was the European championship.

I love the design, I just wish "The Gold" was gold plated. Are we seeing a trend of the secondary (or worse) titles being replaced with a new design with silver plating?

I liked the new belt at first and then one of my friends saw it and told me how much he thought it looked like a class ring. Now that's all I can see.

I love Evan Bourne.

That is all.

I have vague memory of that segment. I don't remember it being creepy but it was a bit strange. The use of the words "large muscle" before of saying "heart" was a bit disturbing but that was Warrior.
