ECW Week 2

The show begins with Teddy Long standing in the middle of the ring.  He welcomes the fans to the show and says the show will be huge tonight.  He says that nine men will be in a battle royal for the number one contendership at No Way Out.

He announces that Jack Swagger will go one on one with a superstar who is debuting superstar tonight.

An Evan Bourne video package is shown, teasing his return.

We return with John Morrison in the ring, and he claims that he already earned the number one contender spot, and calls Teddy Long to the ring.  Teddy says that he agrees that Morrison has earned a No. 1 contendership, and that his match will be next week, the week before No Way Out.

Morrison looks shocked, and asks what he's supposed to do the rest of the night.  Long says he will have a match, and it's next.

After about 10 seconds, Ricky Ortiz's music hits, and he brings his rally towel down to the ring.  Morrison stomps him th second he tries rolling into the ring.  Morrison goes to the ground and starts pounding him.

Morrison picks him up and Irish whips him into the corner.  Morrison then runs at him and hits a clothesline.  Morrison pulls him out of the corner and goes for Moonlight Drive, but it is countered.

Ortiz bounces off the ropes and hits a clothesline.  He repeats.  He goes for a third, and Morrison ducks, but Ortiz hits the opposite rope and delivers a jumping shoulder tackle. Ortiz poses for the crowd.


We return and we see a video of Morrison hitting an enzugiri.  Both men are on the floor.

Morrison gets to his feet first and climbs to the top rope.   Right as Ortiz gets up, he dives for the rope, and knocks Morrison off the ropes.  Morrison thuds in the the ring, and Ortiz picks him up, and hits a suplex on Morrison.  Ortiz goes for the pin.

1-2, kick out.

Ortiz sets up for a power bomb, but Morrison drops off his shoulders behind him, and hits a neck-breaker.

Morrison drags him so his body is in a good position, and Morrison does a split legged moonsault.

Morrison gets the pin.

Morrison grabs a mic and says that the crowd better cheer Jack Swagger tonight, because he won't be champion much longer.

He leaves the ring.


Jack Swagger's music hits and he makes his way down to the ring, showing off his title.

The crowd are on their feet, awaiting a debuting star, and Bret Hart's old music hits.

The announcer tells the crowd that it's T.J. Wilson, with Natalya.

Wilson, while still on the ramp, says he's as good, if not better than anybody in the Hart family.  He then goes on to say that he is going to take the WWE by storm, just like his entire family has done.

He gets in the ring and stares down Swagger.  He hits Swagger with a cheep shot.

Wilson stomps him until the referee pulls him off.  He poses for the crowd.  Wilson picks him up and throws him into the corner, and hits the top rope punches.  

The crowd was really into it.  After hitting the last punch he jumps off the rope and poses again.  Swagger hits him with a massive clothesline, and they're both down.

The ref gets to a four count before Swagger gets up.  He picks Wilson up, and appears to be going for his finisher.  Natalya then gets on the apron to distract him.  He lets go of Wilson and runs after Natalya.  

He turns around and gets hit with a massive punch.  Wilson bounces Swagger off the rope and sends him on an Irish whip, Swagger ducks a clothesline from Wilson, but as he was hitting the opposite rope, Natalya grabs his feet and trips him.

Swagger gets back up and turns around and yells at Natalya and is getting booed.  He pulls Natalya up to the apron, but she pulls his neck down and bounces it off the the rope, and he falls violently to the mat.

Wilson bounces off the rope, and as Swagger is bent over trying to get up, Wilson hits a horizontal jumping kick to the side of his head.  Wilson climbs to the outside, and does a springboard diving elbow.

Wilson gets the pin.

Wilson and Natalya are in the ring celebrating.
