ECW Preview for February 20, 2007



Preview:Triple Threat
February 20, 2007

Bobby Lashley walked onto SmackDown soil at No Way Out where he snapped and nearly crippled ECW World Title contender Mr. Kennedy with a steel chair. Following the vicious beating, has learned that Lashley will put his ECW World Championship on the line this Tuesday night on ECW on Sci Fi against Mr. Kennedy and Hardcore Holly.

Also, the qualifying matches for this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match will continue on ECW on Sci Fi as CM Punk faces Johnny Nitro one-on-one. At WrestleMania 23, six men will collide for the opportunity to compete for a World Championship of their choosing – any time, any place. Which young, hungry star will advance to the grandest stage of them all on April 1?

The story of the New Breed in the Land of the Extreme continued last week on ECW on Sci Fi. Two of the brand’s most outspoken Extremists, Elijah Burke & Matt Striker, had their way with Originals Sabu & Rob Van Dam in the night’s main event. If that wasn’t enough to hurt the Originals’ confidence, Kevin Thorn & Marcus Cor Von also picked up a victory against Sandman & Tommy Dreamer.

What can the Originals do to bring domination back in their corner? Is ECW officially New Breed territory? If the New Breed Extremists continue to work together, it could be a rough ride for the men Vince McMahon deemed “troublemakers.”

Finally, Snitsky made his presence felt once more last week when he attacked yet another Extremist, CM Punk. Is anybody safe from ECW’s newest, most mysterious Extremist?

Find out Tuesday night on ECW on Sci Fi at 10/9 CT.

Also on, Tommy Dreamer’s latest Diary asks fans to vote to give him the right to rebut Vince’s latest comments, Johnny Nitro comments on his match with Punk, and photos of the late Mike Awesome have been posted.
