Storming the palace
ALBANY, N.Y. -- ECW Champion John Morrison couldn't seem to get much higher after beating CM Punk in their third straight match for the gold at SummerSlam. The self-proclaimed shaman of sexy even kicked off ECW on Sci Fi with a bold challenge. Just two days after defending his title at the Biggest Party of the Summer, Morrison offered a championship match to the winner of a Fatal Four Way bout between Punk, The Miz, Big Daddy V and Boogeyman.
CM Punk was seething after his loss to Morrison at SummerSlam, and vowed to get another opportunity at the ECW Championship. After a hard-fought battle against his three opponents, CM Punk pinned The Miz, and gained another coveted chance at the gold. (WATCH) Read more on this story…
Someone whose luck changed for the worse this week was Balls Mahoney. One week after defeating Elijah Burke, the Chair Swinging Freak fell to the Experience. To be fair to the ECW Original, his mind may not have been on in-ring action. His eyes locked with Kelly Kelly's once more just moments before Burke got him with the three-count. Mahoney walked out to his match to chants of "loser," courtesy of Brooke and Layla, but Kelly wishing him good luck quickly overshadowed the insults. (WATCH)
In other ECW on Sci Fi action, Kevin Thorn emerged victorious against nemesis Stevie Richards. For more than a month, Richards has tormented Thorn, earning upset victory after upset victory. Thorn may very well be back to his winning ways, but has the last chapter been written in these Superstars' heated rivalry?
