BALTIMORE – Less than a week before their showdown in their 3-on-1 Handicap Rematch for the ECW World Title, ECW World Champion Mr. McMahon and Bobby Lashley sent the same message to each other: They are ready for Judgment Day.
Lashley showed that he was ready for him, his son Shane McMahon and Umaga by overcoming the New Breed in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match.
A loss was not what New Breed leader Elijah Burke was seeking as he prepared for his war at Judgment Day with CM Punk. He was still seething over an upset loss by Cor Von and Striker to the Major Brothers two weeks ago and blamed the Extreme Educator for the defeat. The fact that Striker was pinned in their match with Lashley did nothing to bring him back into Burke’s good graces.
Tonight’s loss may only motivate the New Breed leader is his upcoming showdown with Punk at Judgment Day – he may feel like he has something to prove. After all, Punk tried to undermine Burke when he was briefly a member of the New Breed and tried to tear the group apart from within. The Straightedge Superstar, who suffered rib injuries at the hands of Burke and Cor Von last week, showed the so-called “Paragon of Virtue” that he was ready for Judgment Day when he defeated Stevie Richards.
No one in the Land of the Extreme has been able to stop Snitsky and his path of rage. Rob Van Dam was his latest victim as the monster showed him the meaning of sadism.
Snitsky’s thirst for carnage has been unquenchable, just like Kevin Thorn’s hunger for new blood – new opponents – has been since he quit the New Breed. The fanged freak began a new chapter in his career with a victory over Nunzio.
* Rob Van Dam def. Snitsky (Disqualification)
* CM Punk def. Stevie Richards
* Kevin Thorn def. Nunzio
* Bobby Lashley def. the New Breed (3-on-1 Handicap Match)
