CINCINNATI -- CM Punk has known he has what it takes to be ECW Champion. On ECW on Sci Fi, he proved it. After emerging victorious from a Fatal Four Way battle a week earlier, the Straightedge Superstar earned his fourth and final chance against John Morrison for the gold. This time, with untouchable confidence, he succeeded. Read more on this story… (WATCH)
The self-proclaimed Shaman of Sexy will now have to rely completely on his furs and boas for his appearance with the absence of the title around his waist. The disappointing loss comes just more than a week after Morrison retained the ECW Championship at SummerSlam in a highly anticipated match. As the new proprietor of the gold, CM Punk can let that chip fall from his shoulder as he starts entertaining other Superstars' challenges.
Elijah Burke was another Superstar who had a big Tuesday night. Teaming up with Kevin Thorn, ECW's Guiding Light put away Originals Stevie Richards & Tommy Dreamer. The win for the Experience proves Burke is truly on a roll.
Boogeyman kicked off ECW on Sci Fi with a match against Matt Striker. When the Extreme Educator was chased outside of the ring, Big Daddy V surprised the monster with a vicious clothesline. The referee immediately called the match in Boogeyman's favor by way of disqualification. However, when the bell sounded, the worm enthusiast was the only one who seemed broken up. (WATCH)
Later on, The Miz continued his impressive win streak with a victory against Balls Mahoney. The contest was balanced for the most part until the tables took a quick turn and The Miz polished off the ECW Original with a Reality Check.
After being proclaimed the winner of the match, The Miz took the microphone and for the second straight week, corrected the announcement, stating, "And the loser is Balls Mahoney." Kelly Kelly quickly rushed to Mahoney's side, only to have The Miz pull her away moments later.
Find out what develops with Striker, Burke and the new ECW Champion. Watch ECW on Sci Fi on Tuesday at 10/9 CT.
