This week is a very special Best of ECW show here on Sci-Fi. You may have noticed that RAW and Smackdown are not holding such āBest ofā series this year. Simply put, ECW is the best show and as such is the only one worthy of the honor. Thatās my reasoning at least, and thatās what we are going to go with here on Wrestleview!
The show kicks off with Matt Striker & Todd Grisham in their hosting positions backstage. The heckling Matt Striker lays on Todd Grisham continues throughout the evening and is quite hilarious.
The first segment is essentially the story of CM Punk. They kick off covering Punkās reign as ECW Champion and his loss to Chavo. They continue on to cover his āMoney in the Bankā win and eventual World Heavyweight Championship win.
Todd Grisham gets back at Striker by showing a clip of Matt getting hit with the GTS.
Segment: Kaneās run as ECW Champion

Segment: John Morrison & The Miz, Also known as āMizMoā as named by a recap response contest earlier in the year [see this is like Iām including a best of the column 2008 section as well [hey I get props for trying [even if Iām technically giving myself the props [whoops, did the whole multiple bracket thing again]]]].
