LAS VEGAS -- Chavo Guerrero earned the right to be called ECW Champion for another night at No Way Out. Guerrero denied CM Punk the gold when he capitalized on Punk slipping off the turnbuckle, hitting him with a Frog Splash.

The two rivals have had their eyes on each other since Guerrero made a New Year's Resolution to become ECW Champion. From that point forward, he stuck to Punk like a leech, challenging the then-champion to match after match despite losing multiple times.

Since Guerrero became champion after defeating the Straightedge Superstar on ECW on Sci Fi, Punk has managed to get under his skin. He crashed the new ECW Champion's fiesta, disguising himself as a member of the mariachi band and cracking a guitar over Guerrero's head. Punk followed that by casting him into the water in the first-ever Gulf of Mexico Match. Just five days before No Way Out, the Straightedge Superstar put him to sleep while the ECW Champion watched Punk's tune-up match against Mark Henry at ringside.

After successfully defending the ECW Championship on Sunday, Chavo has proven he doesn't need tricks or help from his "familia" -- newly engaged World Heavyweight Champion Edge and SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero -- to win. Still, Punk is as resilient as Superstars come. He believes the title belongs around his waist, and as long as it's in Chavo's possession, Punk is not likely to rest.

With his victory, Chavo Guerrero has established himself as ECW Champion … but only for now.
