Preview: New era for the New Breed
April 17, 2007
CM Punk, ECW’s fastest-rising young star, shocked the Land of the Extreme and his legion of fans when he joined the conniving New Breed last week on ECW on Sci Fi. He told WWE.com why he made his decision, but will he have anything to say before the fans in Italy? And what does his acquisition mean to the New Breed’s battle for supremacy in ECW with the Originals? What repercussions await the New Breed and CM Punk this week? Find out as ECW on Sci Fi goes international.
Things looked bleak for the Originals as one of their cornerstones, Sabu, appeared to be severely injured after New Breed leader Elijah Burke aggravated a neck injury he suffered at his hands in an Extreme Rules Eight-Man-Tag Team Match. What is the Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal, Death-Defying Maniac’s condition? And with the addition of Punk to the New Breed, will the Originals be forced to seek reinforcements?
An exuberant Mr. McMahon boasted last week that he showed ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley Ã¢â‚¬â€œ in bloody fashion on Raw Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that he would make his life a living hell after he embarrassed him at WrestleMania 23. The Chairman has vowed to take the ECW World Championship when Lashley defends the title in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match against the billionaire, his son Shane and Umaga at Backlash. Will Lashley have a response to the maniacal, bald billionaire?
Snitsky showed the Land of the Extreme that no one Ã¢â‚¬â€œ not even Extreme ExposÃƒÂ© Ã¢â‚¬â€œ is safe when he’s around. But Balls Mahoney thwarted the evil intentions the deranged monster had for ExposÃƒÂ©’s Layla.
Are these two headed for a collision course? Find out Tuesday night at 10/9 CT on ECW on Sci Fi.
Also on ECW.com are a story on RVD meeting a fan in Italy, a new commentary from Tommy Dreamer and Joey Styles naming a McMahon Most Extreme Player for last week.
