FRESNO, Calif. -- Just days before ECW Champion Jack Swagger was set to defend his title against Finlay at No Way Out (Match preview), the cocky, young Superstar called out Hornswoggle. Much to the surprise of "The All-American American" -- and the WWE Universe -- instead of Finlay's son, Christian emerged to challenge the ECW Champion. (WATCH | PHOTOS)
 
After Christian promised Swagger he'd challenge him or Finlay for the ECW Title after No Way Out, Swagger told Christian he's no threat to the All-American American. Christian then leveled Swagger, and moments later, ECW General Manager Theodore Long told Swagger he'd be facing Christian in non-title action that night.

After being mocked last week on ECW on Sci Fi by World Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison, Tommy Dreamer was seeking revenge. Unfortunately for the ECW Original who has vowed to walk away from WWE if he doesn't win the ECW Title before his contract expires in June, he wasn't able to get that retribution after The Miz picked up the victory.

Tyson Kidd brought his list of credentials -- and Diva Natalya -- to his first match on ECW on Sci Fi and easily picked up a victory over a local competitor. The athletic newcomer is a student of the Hart Family Dungeon, and was personally trained by Bret "Hit Man" Hart, Natalya's uncle. Kidd is already making an impact in the Land of the Extreme, and has caught the competitive eye of Jamie Noble.

After a 3½ year absence from WWE, Christian made a triumphant return, defeating ECW Champion Jack Swagger days before he'll defend the Extreme Title against Finlay at No Way Out. Finlay and Hornswoggle joined the ECW announce team to observe Finlay's No Way Out opponent. As Hornswoggle distracted the referee, the man who loves to fight assisted in Christian's victory by hitting Swagger with the shillelagh. Christian pinned the ECW Champion, leaving a normally cocky Swagger defeated before Sunday's pay-per-view.
