Time is on their side
SAN DIEGO -- Tuesday was a night in which experience prevailed, as the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair made a memorable appearance just one day after being named to the 2008 WWE Hall of Fame class.
By contrast with the 16-time World Champion, the gutsy Colin Delaney's inexperience took a toll on him when he faced The Miz in one-on-one action. The last time Delaney, Tommy Dreamer, The Miz and John Morrison were all called to the ring, Dreamer emerged victorious with the hopeful Superstar in his corner. The luck changed tonight, however, when the self-proclaimed "Chick Magnet" notched a win and added insult to injury -- or more injury to injury -- by beating down Delaney and Dreamer with the help of his co-WWE Tag Team Champion.
Another young Superstar was in action, but had a better outing. Kofi Kingston continued his winning streak, remaining undefeated since joining the extreme brand. So far, ECW has truly been a paradise for the Jamaican competitor. After his victory, Kingston stood in the middle of the ring with Joey Styles and announced, "ECW to me is like paradise ... if there's trouble in paradise, you know Kofi Kingston is going to take care of it."
Stevie Richards, on the other hand, is as experienced as Superstars get. The ECW Original earned his second consecutive victory since making his return to the ring following his recovery from throat surgery. Richards is once again forced to prove himself. So far, it doesn't appear this go-around will be any different from the other times Stevie overcame adversity and succeeded.
Speaking of experience, Maria has taken advantage of a major opportunity to pose for Playboy. Kelly Kelly congratulated her on her contract and said she wouldn't be opposed if she had the chance to pose, one day. (WATCH)
The night concluded with Flair adding another win to the most impressive résumé in sports-entertainment history. Alongside CM Punk, the "Nature Boy" put Shelton Benjamin & Elijah Burke in their place. More on this story ... (WATCH)
