TAMPA, Fla. - Kane overcame the odds on ECW on Sci Fi, earning a win in his Handicap Match against Big Daddy V & Matt Striker. But after the bell, the duo stuffed him like a turkey and ended the night on top of the world.
Earlier in the evening, our fans received an early present for the holidays. Elijah Burke ushered in Shelton Benjamin as ECW’s newest roster addition. It didn’t take long for the former Raw Superstar to make an impact. He defeated ECW Original Tommy Dreamer, pleasing the brand's self-proclaimed Guiding Light. Burke announced he once led the charge to change the Land of the Extreme, claiming he is now doing it again.
If a new Superstar wasn’t enough for our fans to kick off the holiday season, a scorching hot fight between Kelly Kelly and Layla certainly was. Layla addressed the Tampa, Fla., audience, boasting that she is better than Kelly in every way possible. She also made sure to give thanks for The Miz and his decision to arrange a catfight between the two Divas next week. Before Layla could finish, Kelly attacked her and started a food fight that would make any Thanksgiving dinner fail in comparison.
ECW Champion CM Punk kicked off ECW on Sci Fi, riding his white hot winning streak for another night. The match also displayed the continuance of the agreement between ECW General Manager Armando Estrada and SmackDown Acting General Manager Vickie Guerrero.
In other Tuesday night action, Kevin Thorn returned with his new look to ECW on Sci Fi, earning a convincing win against Nunzio. WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz also offered their commentary while Jesse & Festus bested Deuce & Domino.
