SAN ANTONIO -- The WWE Universe was in luck Tuesday night, as the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship Match was announced for the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania. Meanwhile, Hornswoggle celebrated St. Patrick's Day by wreaking havoc at the AT&T Center, and his father, Finlay, had more than Irish luck behind him on ECW on Sci Fi.

World Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison brought a live edition of "The Dirt Sheet" to ECW on Sci Fi, but were interrupted by WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito & Primo hoping to broadcast their own episode of "Carlito's Cabana." Miz & Morrison accepted Carlito & Primo's challenge of a winners-take-all, new, Unified WWE Tag Team Championship Match at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania. But their meeting quickly turned unpleasant when Carlito & Primo accidentally spit apples in the face of Brie Bella. When Nikki laughed at her twin's expense, Brie shoved her sister and the Divas began to brawl. Nikki departed the ring with the World Tag Team Champions, while Brie stayed behind with the WWE Tag Team Champions. While the sisters are divided, which tag team will leave the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania the Unified Tag Champions? (Match Preview)

Finlay def. Paul Burchill (PHOTOS)
It was a St. Patrick's Day to remember for Finlay & Hornswoggle as the Fighting Irishman defeated Paul Burchill on ECW on Sci Fi. Burchill sought revenge for his sister, Katie Lea, who was involved in a corned beef and cabbage food fight with Hornswoggle earlier in the evening. But the overly-rambunctious Hornswoggle was merely celebrating St. Patrick's Day, a celebration that was even sweeter after Finlay was a winner over Paul with a Celtic Cross.

ECW Champion Jack Swagger returns (WATCH | PHOTOS)
ECW Champion Jack Swagger returned to ECW on Sci Fi this week. While he wasn't in action, he wanted to make an appearance in front of the WWE Universe.

"I know you missed me last week," Swagger said. "And I'm not competing tonight, but as a service to all of you, and because I am so good-looking, I just wanted to give you the pleasure of laying your eyes upon the two-time, two-time All-American American, Jack Swagger … your ECW Champion."

Evan Bourne def. Jamie Noble (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Evan Bourne -- who suffered a torn deltoid ligament five months ago -- made his triumphant return to the Land of the Extreme on Tuesday night. Despite harsh words from Jamie Noble, who said he might "crash ‘Air' Bourne permanently," the high-flying Superstar defeated Noble with a gravity-defying Shooting Star Press. The undefeated Tyson Kidd and his associate, Natalya, watched as Bourne soared to victory. But with the WWE Universe in Bourne's corner, will any Superstar be able to stop the exciting Slammy Award-winner?

United States Champion Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry def. Christian & MVP (PHOTOS)
Half of the Superstars competing in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania met in tag team action this week on ECW on Sci Fi. United States Champion Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry faced Christian & Montel Vontavious Porter in ECW action, and The Gold Standard shined brightly on Tuesday night. After Christian slapped WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas off the ring apron, SmackDown's Benjamin hit Pay Dirt on Captain Charisma for the tag team victory. Is this a sign of things to come at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania's Money in the Bank Ladder Match on April 5? Also, Shelton Benjamin will defend his U.S. Title against MVP, the longest reigning U.S. Champion, this Friday on the historic 500th episode of SmackDown. Who will walk away with the U.S. Title?
