IT WAS STILL ENTERTAINING

ECW
DECEMBER TO DISMENBER

This is the one and only pay-per-view that the revived ECW had before all three brands started competing on each pay-per-view. Regardless of what other people say I actually like this event and think it deserves more credit then it gets. This was also the second ECW event of this name, the first being in 1995 this in 2006.

1.THE HARDY BOYS VS MNM-this was a pretty good opener to the event, it kinda reminded me of tag matches back in the day. Nothing to fancy and nothing to over the top, but enough there to keep you entertained. I don't know if I would call it match of the night but it was an entertaining match none the less. There were a few high spots and a few good exchanges between the two. While this match might be slow at times it is still highly competitive. The Hardys take this one in the end.

2.MATT STRIKER VS BALLS MAHONEY-this is a decent match and like the previous it reminds me of the old days. This is more of a traditional wrestling match due to Striker's rules but I kinda like this bout. Maybe it is because I like both of these guys I don't know but I like it, Balls takes this match and Striker's ring wear is classic.

Sabu is attacked behind the scenes and therefore is out of the main event.

3.ELIJAH BURKE & SYLVESTER TERKAY VS F.B.I.-this is a good match up right here, it is the old ECW verses the new. It wasn't an extremely exciting match but it was pretty entertaining. I think it was on par with the last two, these four guys put on a good show in a good back and forth battle. Burke and Terkay take the win and prove they belong in ECW.

4.DAIVARI VS TOMMY DREAMER-this match featured one of my all time favorite wrestlers of all time, Tommy Dreamer. Khali gets sent to the back after he interferes in the match, which gave me high hopes for Dreamer against a really talented performer. Maybe it is my being a huge fan of Dreamer but I think this was a really good match. This was more of a technical battle more then anything. Anyway Daivari ends up winning this one by hooking Dreamer's trunks, then Dreamer takes a huge bump on the entrance ramp from Khali.

Next up we see Hardcore Holly added to the main event.

5.MIKE KNOX & KELLY KELLY VS KEVIN THORN & ARIEL-another decent match with this mixed tag team event, both of the men do well in this match and try to keep the action going. But this is one of the few instances that the women are out shining the men, both of them really make this one interesting. The pin fall that Ariel gats on Kelly Kelly is great.

The Sandman makes a great appearance directly after the match and canes Kevin Thorn like crazy.

6.ECW CHAMPIONSHIP-EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER-BIG SHOW VS RVD VS TEST VS C.M. PUNK VS HARDCORE HOLLY VS BOBBY LASHLEY-Hardcore Holly and RVD started this unique match off and go at it from the jump. It was cool to see these two start this one off because these two had a classic match on ECW on Sci-Fi, Holly got a huge gash on his back during that match. There is a great spot between these two were RVD turns into Spiderman. C.M. Punk comes into the match next and explodes on RVD and Holly, there is a lot of great action that takes place once Punk is in there. Test comes in next and starts going to work on a bloody RVD. But RVD still manages to deliver a sick frog splash and eliminates C.M. Punk. Right after that Hardcore Holly is quickly eliminated by Test, who then goes on to eliminate RVD with a great elbow drop from the top of a pod. Lashley finds a creative way to get out of his pod when Test won't allow him to come out the door. And after Bobby tears Test apart he quickly disposes of him and waits for Big Show. After these two rip into each other Lashley wins the title and goes on to have a weird feud with Vince.

BONUS MATCH

7.ECW CHAMPIONSHIP-BOBBY LASHLEY VS BIG SHOW-this was I believe a rematch that happened at the very next ECW show after the pay-per-view. I also believe it was Big Shows last appearance for a while in the WWE, not positive though. This is one of the better matches that Bobby was in after winning the ECW title. He delivers along side Show a great one on one match, much better then I thought it would be. When I watched this live I was sure this would not be that great, but I was pleasantly surprised. Lashley keeps the belt after a hard fought battle.

This event is better then it gets credit for but it kinda sucks that this was the last ECW pay-per-view. Good post interviews.
