CLEVELAND -- Irish Eyes were smiling upon Sheamus Tuesday night, as The Celtic Warrior finally found his pot of Extreme gold with a victory over Goldust on ECW on Syfy.

After a double count-out finish to their last match (PHOTOS | WATCH), and an intense confrontation recently on "The Abraham Washington Show," Sheamus and Goldust were determined to put their intense rivalry to the test once again. In a No Count-Outs, No Disqualifications Match, The Celtic Warrior defeated The Bizarre One. But the win didn't come easily, as Goldust powerfully fought off numerous attacks by Sheamus -- who at one point retreated up the ramp, mid-match -- before finally succumbing to The Irish Curse. Is this the end of the road for Sheamus and Goldust? Has The Celtic Warrior finally proven he's the dominant Superstar?

With William Regal at ringside, Ezekiel Jackson & Vladimir Kozlov easily defeated two local competitors in ECW tag team action. The British Brawler further punished one of his associates' opponents with The Regal Stretch, but was interrupted by ECW Champion Christian and Tommy Dreamer, both wielding Singapore Canes. While Jackson and Kozlov put up a strong fight, Christian and Dreamer prevailed, gaining the upper hand against No. 1 contender Regal and his devious associates. On next week's ECW, Christian & Dreamer will meet Jackson & Kozlov in tag team action. The ECW Champion and the ECW Original have momentum going into this match, but do they have what it takes to defeat Regal's unstoppable associates?

After an introduction by his new sidekick, WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas, Abraham Washington welcomed this week's special guest -- Gregory Helms. The ECW backstage interviewer has been surrounded by controversy lately. Paul Burchill and his sister, Katie Lea, are convinced Helms is really The Hurricane. But during the talk show, the superhero Superstar appeared on the "Hurri-Cam" to challenge The Ripper to a match on next week's ECW on Syfy. Will Burchill finally prove his theory that Helms is really The Hurricane? Will the masked Superstar triumph against his foe?

Unable to compete as tag team partners on last week's ECW (PHOTOS | WATCH), Shelton Benjamin and Zack Ryder squared off against each other. Regardless of their competitions to determine which is the more entertaining Superstar, The Gold Standard came out on top when it came down to a match. Despite a strong effort by Ryder, Benjamin hit Paydirt on the cocky, Long Island-bred Superstar to seal the Extreme victory. Is that the end of these Superstars' rivalry? Or will Benjamin and Ryder continue to clash on Tuesday nights?
