InsidePulse’s ECW on Sci-Fi Report 07.25.06
Live from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich.
Announcers are Joey Styles & Tazz
By: John Cavanagh
Our main event for tonight will be The Big Show vs. Kane for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, because having actual ECW guys compete for it makes far too much sense. We can also expect Tommy Dreamer to be taught some more lessons for speaking his mind on the internet. All that and more of the same can be expected tonight.
The show opens with Mike Knox and Kelly Kelly in the ring. Mike says that he wants to show everyone something that they all can enjoy, which is a montage of all the dances Kelly has done on the show thus far since it premiered on Sci-Fi. Mike tells Kelly that she can’t take her clothes off ever again, and then shows us a clip of Sandman caneing Kelly last week when Knox pulled her in front of him. He says there’s no doubt in his mind that Sandman hit her on purpose, and that he didn’t abandon her, but ran to the back to get EMT’s to help her. Mike says that he wants everybody to watch and see how he treats Sandman.
Sandman makes his way down to the ring. The Ref tries to take away his cane which means that this will be not be and ECW Rules match.
Mike Knox vs. Sandman
Knox gets a few cheap shot in while the ref and Sandman fight over the cane. He begins to land a few knees to Sandman’s head. The two get up and and then starts throwing a few punches, Sandman hits the White Russian Legsweep and then goes to the outside to get his cane. He comes back in to the ring and the ref tries to pull the cane away, while this goes on Kelly comes in to the ring and Sandman goes to hit Knox but is able to pull back in time before hitting Kelly by mistake again. While Sandman yells at Kelly to get out of the ring, Test runs in and takes out Sandman. Knox gets up and the two are double teaming on Sandman, they pull him up and Test hits his F-5/neckbreaker finisher. The two along with Kelly walk away.
Winner by DQ: Sandman
Knox and Test are in the back and they talk about how they’re unstoppable and dominant. Dreamer goes after them with a trash can and starts to whale on Test, officials in the back restrain Dreamer while the other two run away.
Paul is in the locker room with Sabu who wants to challenge the Big Show to a title match. Paul talks about how brutal tonights main event between Kane and Show will be. He tells Sabu that he’d love to see the match but he can’t and won’t make the match, not tonight, not next week, not next month, not ever, he then tells Sabu that he won’t even have a match tonight and can go home. Paul walks over to Little Guido who he thinks was muttering something under his breath about Paul. Heyman’s two guards begin to pound on Guido and then Paul tells him that his match is next.
Another CM Punk segment, he says that he will debut next week.
In the ring is the Vampire along with Ariel, Little Guido is being dragged to the ring by Heyman’s security.
Vampire vs. Little Guido
Vampire quickly slams Guido to the ground with a clothesline. A few punches followed by some chops to the chest by Vampire. He gets distracted by Ariel on the apron which gives Guido enough times to get to his feet and get a boot to the gut of Vampire. Guido goes for a few more kicks but get caught by Vampire who them grabs Guido and hits a chokeslam. Vampire sets up for a fireman’s carry but puts Guido’s legs on to the ropes and hits some type of modified Stone Cold Stunner. He has Guido in the corner and starts stomping away.

Credible tries to crawl out of the ring but Balls pulls him back, Credible goes for the ropes but Balls pushes him over and out of the ring, along with Mahoney himself. Credible tries to leave through the audience but Balls drags him back to the ring. This is another non ECW Rules match. Credible tries to capitalize back in the ring with four legdrops in a row.

Balls goes for a pin but Credible gets his foot on the ropes. Credible pushes Balls in to the ref and goes to get a steel chair but Balls reverses it, grabs the chair and lays Credible out cold. The refs sees it and calls for the bell.
Winner by DQ: Justin Credible
Balls celebrates in the ring but when he hears the DQ he gets in the ref face, he tells him the Credible brought the chair in. When the ref doesn’t want to hear it Mahoney responds by giving the ref a shot to the head with the chair also.
Paul and Show are in the back and Show tells Paul how he’s fought everybody that has wanted a piece of him, and that Sabu is no different. Paul tells him to trust his judgment.
