Tonight, the new breed will be unleashed. At 10/9 CT, ECW will make its debut on the Sci-Fi channel. As announced last night on RAW, Paul Heyman and Rob Van Dam will officially celebrate the rechristening of the WWE Championship as the new ECW World Heavyweight Championship, and everyone is invited.
What exactly the rechristening will entail is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure though, RAW’s Edge, who is the No. 1 contender and will face RVD at Vengeance, along with Lita has accepted Paul Heyman’s invitation to appear at the world premiere. In addition, former WWE Champion John Cena has vowed to be there as well. After what Cena did last night on RAW, taking out three members of Team ECW with a steel chair, you can be sure Heyman will have the entire ECW locker room on watch.
What will happen when the most extreme form of wrestling returns to national television? What will John Cena and Edge have to say when Rob Van Dam is named the new ECW World Heavyweight Champion? History will be made tonight and the only way to see it is to tune in live to the Sci Fi channel tonight at 10/9 CT.
