INDIANAPOLIS -- Forty percent of the WWE Universe predicted Mark Henry would remain ECW Champion after SummerSlam, but nobody could have guessed how the events of the night would unfold. After challenger Matt Hardy fell victim to an attack by WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas, and Henry retained the gold via disqualification, Jeff Hardy rushed to his brother's side and leveled Atlas before the siblings teamed up on Henry for a double-suplex.

The lack of closure in Indianapolis simply adds more fuel to the fiery rivalry between Hardy and the World's Strongest Champion. Their SummerSlam contest was arranged just two days after Henry retained the gold at The Great American Bash. Since that day, Henry has shown nothing but confidence and the challenger has been a poster image of determination.

Last week on ECW, the competitors were forced to work together in tag team action. Despite earning a win, their temporary alliance proved to be mission impossible when the ECW Champion buried Hardy with the World's Strongest Slam.

Hardy has endured attack after attack from Mark Henry and his associates, but the zealous Superstar continues to fight. How much more will he have to endure in order to be ECW Champion?
