The end is near
BATON ROUGE, La.— With the final episode of ECW on Syfy only one week away, ECW General Manager Tiffany implored her talented roster of Superstars to go out and impress the WWE Universe tonight — and that's exactly what they did. With three excellent matches exemplifying the ECW style and two huge bouts set for next Tuesday, the penultimate edition of ECW on Syfy was certainly one to remember.

For weeks, Shelton Benjamin has been put through hell by the massive Vance Archer, but not once did The Gold Standard back down from the big man. After many grueling battles, the rivalry between these two competitors finally came to a head on tonight's ECW on Syfy with each Superstar agreeing to battle in a No Disqualification, No Count-Out brawl. As expected, the contest was particularly brutal with each man being pushed to their physical limit. But, in the end, Shelton Benjamin pulled off the victory, making one of his final ECW memories a great one.

After Ezekiel Jackson made short work of a local competitor with his devastating uranage, the massive Superstar's associate, William Regal, grabbed the microphone. The British Brawler then ran down Tiffany before demanding that the beautiful boss grant Big Zeke an ECW Championship Match as her final act as General Manager.
Not one to back down from a confrontation, Christian personally accepted the challenge later in the evening and then upped the ante. Not only will the ECW Championship be on the line next Tuesday, but the match will be contested under Extreme Rules!

With a Unified Tag Team Title opportunity on the line, two of ECW's finest tandems brought everything they had to the ring on one of the Land of the Extreme's final nights. While the video-game playing team of Caylen Croft & Trent Barreta impressed, the young duo ultimately fell to the unique pairing of Yoshi Tatsu & Goldust. The Japanese Superstar & The Bizzare One will now face Unified Tag Team Champions Big Show & The Miz on next Tuesday's ECW on Syfy.
