ECW on Sci-Fi - 1/16/07

1) C.M. Punk vs. Matt Striker – 3
2) Marquis Cor Von vs. Cassidy Reily – 2
3) Elijah Burke vs. The Sandman – 1
4) Rob Van Dam vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Test – 4

The opening bout with Punk and Striker was pretty technically sound and planted the seeds for a future program between the two. The real story of the match was the return of Kelly Kelly and her continued infatuation with Punk. Monty Brown of TNA fame debuted with the new moniker Marquis Cor Von and made quick work out of fellow TNA alum Reily. He did the same gimmick he had in TNA and looks to be a major player on the ECW brand. Burke and Sandman was a pile of suck and ended just as quickly as it began. The main event three way could’ve been way better but to me nothing really seemed to click between them. After watching I realized that Test may be a better choice as champion than Lashley mainly because he’s a monster heel and Lashley still needs the tiniest bit of work. The ECW product has really taken a hit since Heyman’s departure after the December pay-per-view and you can see that it really lacks both motivation and direction.
