ECW Preview for May 1, 2007



Preview: New Era of Hell
May 1, 2007

Hell has frozen over in the Land of the Extreme as Mr. McMahon defeated Bobby Lashley in their 3-on-1 Handicap Match at Backlash to become the new ECW World Champion. What will this mean to ECW? Will now-former champion Lashley have a response to this devastating defeat?

It’s no secret that the Chairman holds the ECW Originals – Rob Van Dam, Tommy Dreamer, Sandman and Sabu – with disdain and believes the New Breed are the future of ECW. And the Originals were outraged and did not hide their distaste when Mr. McMahon won the title. On the next ECW on Sci Fi, the Originals will confront the new ECW Champion.

The New Breed may have a new war on their hands with CM Punk. The relationship between Punk and Elijah Burke and the New Breed appeared to disintegrate last week when the straightedge Superstar cost them their match against the ECW Originals. Punk showed that he walks alone and follows no one. What will Punk have to say about his actions, and will the New Breed have revenge on their minds?

Last week on ECW on Sci Fi, Snitsky continued his path of destruction by demolishing Balls Mahoney. Will anyone else be brave enough to stand up to the deranged ECW monster?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on ECW on Sci Fi this Tuesday at 10/9 CT.
