Opening promo was pretty awesome with Mark Henry, Matthew Hardy, Miz, and Morrison. It set up the main event tonight but I didn't really pay attention at the end. Am I the only one thinking Matthew is going to win this Sunday?
The Real All American All American American Made American Jack Swaggah vs Lenny F'n Lane - Woah, when did Lenny Lane come into ECW? I guess he's a hired jobber because Swaggah completely kills him then goes for a cheap shot and Tommy Dreamer comes out for the save.
TOMMY DREAMER IN AN OFFICIAL MATCH NEXT!
Tommy Dreamer vs Mike Knox - I don't know why they just don't give it up with Knox already. The referee in this match has excellent hair care techniques. Mike Striker must be a Phillies fan. I like Sasquatch's finisher. It looks badass. Jack Swaggah comes back in and beats up Dreamer some more, All American Real American Made American style. I love his finisher too.
The main event is Ortiz, Bourne, and Ortiz vs MMM. Should be interesting. Is Bourne on RAW or ECW?
Is Smackdown moving to My Network TV? MORE VIDEO PACKAGES. I wish I could watch ECW on DVR. I'd probably be done in 11 minutes. This video package reminds me how much I miss JBL on commentary.
And that was that for that segment. I said that a lot. 10/10
Main event time already, wow.
Miz, Morrison, Mark vs Ortiz, Bourne, Matthew Hardy - I'd probably pay to see the heel team do a spirit-squad like entrance. I don't like Ortiz. Anyone who steals a gimmick from the Pittsburgh Steelers is not cool in my book. I get the idea that Matt Striker is a Republican. KING MABEL REFERENCE! Another long solid wrestling main event from ECW which ends with Mark Henry pinning Evan Bourne with the WSS. What happened to Bourne's push? START WHINING, IWC!!
I don't know, this show just isn't doing it for me lately.
This is my first time catching Jack Swagger, and while I'm glad that they've given one of these new guys a cool name, Swagger turns out to be pretty boring. He even gets a nickname already -- the "All-American American" -- so why is he coming to the ring in black and gray trunks instead of star-spangled tearaway trousers? Ugh.

Striker almost snuck "six foot putz" by me, but I was JUST paying attention enough to do a "wait, what?" and then wonder if the people on his headphones got it, too, and if so, what they did with it. Hearing Grisham try to talk about Matt Hardy while he was talking to Matt Striker in the opening segment almost scares me into thinking Striker will have to get a new first name before next show. What I'm SAYING is: we'll probably look back and think that these were the good times.
Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard! Good luck to those down south.

Correct, sir. One of our wrestlers was scheduled for the spot, but bumped at the last minute for Lane. Booooo.
Sadly, he did not return that Loverboy tape to Jericho.
Does the Nash switch count? I can't quite remember the specifics of the Flair->Jericho switch before Nash beat Jericho, but I remember it being odd and Nash going out of his way to say that he was just giving back the belt that Flair never lost.
