The Real Reason Ezekiel Jackson Won The ECW Title Last Night

Jesse SeedathContributor IFebruary 17, 2010

Ezekiel Jackson is not only the final ECW champion, but is technically the shortest reigning ECW champion ever. At Guilty as Charged 2001, The Sandman won the Title, and held it for 6 minutes, 32 seconds, before losing it to Rhino. From the three count to the credits rolling and fading to black, Jackson's reign was 2 minutes, 59 seconds.

The reason Ezekiel Jackson won the title is because VINCE  wanted Jackson to have momentum as he will be heading to the SmackDown! brand. There was a thought of Christian retaining, to give the crowd a happy ending, but that was shot down.

Some wanted to honor the old ECW on the show, including some old names coming back for cameo appearances, but the thought was that it was more important to get WWE NXT over, while closing out ECW as quickly as possible.
