The opening was Morrison and Miz doing a hilarious promo about Teddy Long, then Long comes out and talks about the initiative and Morrison gets off an awesome line.. "Braden Walker? I bet he's doing real good in his future endeavors after he got released after two matches" Classic. I can't believe the places Miz and Morrison go on their promos sometimes, but I sure do love it. They say they can beat anyone so Long sets up a match between the two with the winner facing Ortiz TONIGHT!
Finlay vs Bam Neely - Guess they want to get Neely some ring time. Finlay wins in a decent enough match.
Maryse vs Michelle - Maryse wins because it's non title. She looked hot tonight. Michelle not so much. Drop the ponytail, bitch.
Mark Henry comes out and wastes time.
Mike Knox vs Some Jobber - That jobber is a real natural. JR sucks Knox off on commentary. After the match (Knox won, shockingly enough), he goes to leave and Mr. All American (w/Jamie Noble's old music, STILL) comes out and hits an awesome powerbomb thing on Some Jobber, then Tommy Dreamer comes out and gets a powerbomb for his troubles too. HEEL TURN!
Miz vs Morrison, winner faces Ortiz TONIGHT! - No one wins and no one faces Ortiz TONIGHT! as Ortiz comes out and gets two Big O's in. Decent match, lots of near falls.
Great episode of ECW with two awesome lines (the Morrison one and Striker wondering if Miz's hat comes in mens.) Keep up the good work, ECW.
The past couple of weeks I've watched ECW just for the commentary (I like some of what is going on too.) Striker is hilarious, speaks really well, has the best vocabulary of all their commentators and he always does his homework and has facts about the wrestlers and just has a great general knowledge of everything.
I can't stand Cole/Lawler and though I like Taz I think JR has lost a step big time. 90% of his commentary are just random comments and no story is being told. It's like really bad video game commentary.
I'd fully expect the top prospects (e.g., Harry Smith, Nattie Neidhart, T.J. Wilson and others) to be folded back into OVW while they search for a new spot for them. Coincidentally, scuttlebutt has the New(er) Hart Foundation debuting in July.
