ECW champions a new Punk era
ECW has a new bastion of extreme and he goes by the name of Punk. This past Saturday night at a television taping in Cincinnati, No. 1 contender CM Punk reshaped the Land of the Extreme by seizing the ECW Championship from John Morrison. Catch this competitive contest in its entirety as well as Punk's celebration tonight on a monumental edition of ECW on Sci Fi.
"I don't think I've ever been proud of myself before, and tonight I am," uttered the newly crowned champion, just moments after his golden victory. "Ten years of sacrifice and hard work, one year in ECW, setback after setback — you think something like this will never happen. Tonight, it all paid off."
After coming within inches of the title in several instances against Morrison, the tenacious Straightedge Superstar defeated three other competitors -- Boogeyman, The Miz and Big Daddy V -- last week on ECW on Sci Fi to earn No. 1 contendership. Persistent as ever, CM Punk walked into the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati and unseated the self-proclaimed Shaman of Sexy in the middle of the ring in front of thousands of elated Punk fans.
Tune in to Sci Fi Channel tonight at 10/9 CT to witness a milestone in ECW history and the definitive moment in CM Punk's sports-entertainment career.
