Hello again folks. I'm back with my all new installment of ECW!!!! Tonight, we are covering the ECW Brand's Elimination ChamberMatch at No Way Out! I
know for a fact that the actual live ECW main event for the PPV was Finlay taking on Jack Swagger for the ECW Championship Title, but just by watching that match this past Sunday made me realize that I miss the old ECW days of blood, gore, and insane stunts by amazing and stellar performers.
So, without further ado, let's get extreme!!!
The opening theme song ("Hunt You Down" by Saliva) and video build-up for all tonight's matches begin to play.
(The return of RVD, Tommy Dreamers new found passion for extreme, The Miz being attacked by Dreamer, Morrison qualifying for the chamber match, Swagger betraying RVD and siding with Mark Henry.)
Matt Striker and Todd Grisham welcomes us to an exciting night of No Way Out!
Striker: Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the absolute last PPV before Wrestlemania 25, No Way Out! I'm here with my colleague and partner in crime Todd Grisham and we're joined by ECW Original Tazz on commentary for tonight's ECW Extreme Elimination Chamber Match!
Todd: You're absolutely correct in saying that tonight, we will have an Extreme Elimination Chamber Match! The rules are simple...There are none except the fact that you must pin or make your opponent submit to eliminate him.
The last man standing alone within the match wins the coveted ECW Championship Title!
Tazz: That sounded so good that it was almost right ya clutz! You also forgot to mention that in this Extreme Elimination Chamber Match is that you are allowed to bring one, two, hell or even a hundred weapons to the ring and not only can you use those weapons, but there are going to be weapons hanging all in the chamber on the steel chains!
Boys, I know for a fact you saw the old school ECW, but it is not going to be anything like what we're about to witness tonight!
(We cut to a video buildup of tonight's Extreme Elimination Chamber Match)
The Miz's music plays and he comes out. He has a bandage on his head that covers about 23 stitches. He comes out to a lot of heat and he has a trashcan in his hand.
Out next of course is John Morrison, who's coming to the ring with a chair in each hand. Neither superstar has their Slammy tonight and they both look as if this is personal. He has more heat than his tag-team buddy.
Tommy Dreamer is out next and he has a shopping cart that has a chair, a brown burlap sack, a caution sign, a small carton of gasoline, two kendo sticks, and a trashcan lid. In his right hand, he is holding up a bloody baseball bat with barbed wire wrapped around it. He comes out to a big pop from the live crowd.
Out comes Finlay and he just has his shillelagh in one hand and a steel chain in the other. On his way to te ring, Hornswoggle comes out slowly behind his father and he looks ready for action, but Finlay is telling him to back into the locker room.
Finlay gets a good pop and the crowd does the little, awww sound when Hornswoggle is sent back to the back.
Jack Swagger music hits and he has a microphone at hand.
Swagger: Cut my music! Now Teddy I didn't agree to do any Extreme Elimination Chamber match tonight. On the contract that you showed to both me and my lawyer said that this match was going to be a basic Elimination Chamber match!
Now I want you to come out here and change these ridiculous rules or I walk and you have no Championship defended tonight!
(After about 10 seconds, Teddy Long's music plays and he comes out to a pretty big pop! He seems to finally be getting over with the WWE fans. Thank God!)
Teddy: Now Swagger I think that you got it all mixed up playa. Yes you did sign up to be in the Elimination Chamber Match.
Yes both you and your lawyer carefully looked it over. Yes it did not have any saying in the contract that there were going to be nay weapons involved. But that is just it.
The Elimination Chamber rules clearly states that the match is a no-disqualification match and that anything goes. I just added a little something something to the match that's all playa.
(The crowd is chanting, "ECW, ECW, ECW" at the top of their lungs!)
Swagger: Teddy that is not f....
Teddy: That's just about enough complaining for one night that I can take, but I will give you a small proposition playa.
If you don't compete right now in this match, then I will just have to strip you of your ECW title and choose a replacement for you in the chamber match, but if you compete in this match right now, then all of this can be resolved.
What do ya playa? Lose your title by not competing tonight, or lose your title by competing tonight? I say that because by the looks of these men in that steel hell, You don't even stand a chance! Holla, holla, holla!
(Teddy leaves as Swagger enters the chamber hesitantly.)
RVD is out next and he receives a huge pop from this live audience. He is holding a ladder above his head as he enters the chamber.
It looks as if Rob Van Dam and Finlay are going to start this match off.
Extreme Elimination Chamber Match: ECW Championship Title
Finlay, John Morrison, Tommy Dreamer, The Miz, Rob Van Dam, Jack Swagger (c)
Both men step into the center of the ring and stare each other down. The crowd is chanting, "ECW, ECW, ECW!" RVD and Finlay acknowledges the crowd and step back from each other to get this match started.
Finlay rushes in and tackles RVD and starts delivering right hands to the head. RVD pushes Finlay off and quickly gets to his feet. Finlay tries to rush in again, but RVD evades the attack and rolls him up for the cover. 1..2...
Finlay powers out and gets to his feet. They start trading rights and lefts, until Finlay gets the best of RVD. RVD staggers backwards and Finlay throws him off of the ropes and hits him hard with a clothesline. Finlay gets his shillelagh and brings it inside the ropes.
Finlay gets RVD to his feet and tries to hit him with the weapon, but RVD ducks it and catches him hard with a spinning wheel kick.
RVD gets back up and springboards off the second rope with a leg drop across the chest of Finlay. RVD goes for the cover. 1..2...Finlay kicks out. RVD gets the chair and waits for Finlay to regain his composure.
Finlay gets up and RVD tries to hit the "Vandaminator" but Finlay catches the chair and duck the kick. RVD turns back to Finlay and he throws the chair right back to RVD.
He catches the chair and Finlay uses the shellaleigh and hits the chair back into the face of RVD. RVD is dazed and Finlay lifts him up and hits the "Celtic Cross!"
(Wow! What a spot as the audience has become unglued from their seats!)
Finlay goes for the cover, 1..2.. RVD has kicked out! The lights has dimmed out, and John Morrison's cell has opened for him to be released. Morrison quickly climbs the top rope and goes for a diving cross body, but Finlay catches him and hits a huge powerslam! Finlay stands up and raises his hand in dominance.
He goes over to Morrison and says, "This is for attacking me last week!" He gets him up to his feet and headbutts him twice. Morrison slowly falls back down to the mat. Finlay goes outside the ring onto the steel and gets the table that has been leaning up against the Miz's cell. He sets it up right by the cell.
He goes back in and gets Morrison up and throws him to the outside of the ring. RVD slowly gets up. He bounces off of the ropes and springboards off of the top rope and delivers one hell of a splash to both men. Finlay, John Morrison, and RVD are all laying out on the steel.
The lights go dim once more and The Miz is released into the chamber. The Miz runs over to the downed men and tries to cover RVD. 1..2...RVD kicks out. He tries to cover Finlay. 1..2...
Finlay kicks out. He hesitantly tries to go over and cover Morrison, but Morrison does the "HBk knip-up". He then looks at the Miz confusingly. The Miz offers out his hand to to Morrison, but RVD gets up and smashes their heads together.
Finlay clotheslines the dazed Miz back into the ring. RVD throws Morrison head first into the steel wall of the chamber and goes for the cover. 1..2...Morrison gets his shoulder up at the last minute.
Back in the ring, Finlay has wedged a trashcan into the corner between the third and second rope. Finlay gets the Miz back to his feet and tries to throw him into the trashcan in the corner, but the Miz reverses the irish whip and ends up throwing Finlay into the wedged trashcan. Finlay goes down hard!
The Miz goes over to Tommy Dramer's cell and taunts him.
As soon as he turns his back to the cell, the lights dim down again and Tommy Dreamer is now free! Dreamer goes straight for the Miz. The Miz tries to clothesline him, but Dreamer ducks the shot and hits the Miz with the barbed wire bat. The Miz is busted open badly!!!
Dreamer goes outside of the ring and gets a table. He sets it up right in the middle of the ring. He puts the Miz on it and delivers three right handed blows to the head of the Miz. Dreamer gets the damaged trashcan and puts it over The Miz's head. He goes and gets a ladder and sets it up inside the ring.
He gets a chair and climbs he ladder. He reaches the top and looks down at the Miz. He looks to the crowd and chants, "E...C...W!" Just as he tries to jump off, Finlay pushes the ladder over to one off the empty cells. Tommy Dreamer has fallen off of the ladder through an empty glass cell!
(Oh my gosh!!! What a move! Dreamer is completely out cold from that fall!)
Finlay gets his shillelagh and starts demolishing the trashcan that the Miz is in! On the stell portion of the cell, RVD is delivering hard kicks to the sternum to Morrison.
He puts Morrison against the ropes and tries to hit a turnkick on him, but he ducks the kick and RVD ends up kicking Finlay right in the mouth.
Morrison quickly climbs the wall of the chamber and ends up on the top of Jack Swagger's glass cell. RVD even quicker jumps up to the top rope and ends up on the cell as well. He headbutts Morrison three times causing him to be in a daze.
He jumps up and hits a hurricanrana off the top of the cell through the table that the Miz is on!
(WOW!!! RVD hurricanrana's Morrison off the top of the cell onto the downed Miz! What a spot as the crowd is going nuts! They are all on their feet chanting, "ECW, ECW, ECW!" All three men are lifeless in the ring.)
RVD slowly rolls over and lays his arm across the chest of the Miz. 1-2-3! The Miz is the first competitor eliminated! The light dim out for the last time and the ECW Champion Jack Swagger is now free! Swagger slowly enters the ring with a smile on his face as the match now looks academic.
Swagger gets the lifeless John Morrison up to his feet and hits the gutwrench powerbomb! He goes for the cover. 1-2-3! John Morrison is the second superstar to go. Finlay slowly rises to his feet and tries to hit Swagger with the shillelagh, but Swagger ducks the blow, kicks Finlay in the sternum and hits a huge DDT!
Swagger throws Finlay into the corner and and starts shoving his shoulder into the sternum of Finlay.
Swagger backs away and taunts the live crowd. Swager charges forward and tries to bury his shoulder into the stomach of Finlay, but Finlay dodges the tackle and rolls Swagger up for the cover. 1..2.. Swagger kicks out! He gets up and hits Finlay hard with a clothesline.
RVD is slowly rising to hit feet, but Swagger grabs him and throws him out onto the steel portion of the chamber. He yells to RVD, "I will deal with you later!" As soon as he turns around, Finlay hits a running neckbreaker onto Swagger. The live crowd is going nuts as Finlay climbs to the top rope with a shillelagh.
Swagger slowly starts to get to his feet. Swagger digs into his boot and gets something. As soon as Finlay jumps down, Swagger throws powder into the eyes of Finlay. Finlay land awkwardly and tries to get the powdery substance off of his face. Swagger waits for him to turn around and hits Finlay with brass knuckles.
He goes for the cover. 1-2-3! Finlay is the third superstar eliminated! Swagger starts holding the back of his neck as the match is starting to take its toll.
Dreamer slowly rises from the glass, busted open and battered. He gets into the ring and waits for Swagger to turn around. The live audience is pumped and prepared for the punishment that he is going to get! Swagger turns around and gets caught for a hard spinebuster.
The crowd is hyped as they are fully behind Dreamer. RVD gets back ino the ring with a table and sets it up. Dreamer gets the brown burlap sack and opens it. He pours the small thumbtacks all over the table. He uses his hand to spread them out.
RVD hands Dreamer the gasoline keg and Dreamer pours it all over the thumbtacks and the table itself. RVD goes over to Swagger and starts to hit him with right handed blows.
Dreamer lights a match and throws onto the table and now the table is engulfed in flames! RVD gets Swagger up. Dreamer climbs to the second rope. RVD hands Swagger to Dreamer. It looks like Dreamer is going to hit the "Dreamer Driver" from the second rope onto the table.
The lights go out.
With the aid of the flames, we see a large figure on the outside of the chamber take out a ref. The chamber door is open. The large figure enters the ring. The lights come back on and we see Mark Henry in the ring. RVD runs to Henry, but he just uses his body and tackles RVD. Dreamer just drops Swagger back down onto the mat and charges right for Henry.
He catches Dreamer into his grasp and hits the "World's Strongest Slam!" Swagger staggers to his feet and climbs to the second rope. Swagger is directing traffic and tells Henry that he wants Dreamer. Henry puts Dreamer into Swagger's arms.
Swagger jumps off powerbombing Dreamer through the flaming table covered in thumbtacks!
(Oh My Goodness! What the hell did we just witness?!? Swagger has just put Dreamer through a flaming thumbtack covered table!)
The arena crew enters the ring and uses the fire extinguisher on Dreamer and the table. They extinguish the fire and Henry starts to attack the ring crew. Swagger covers Dreamer and Henry bullies the ref into counting the pin. 1-2-3!
Dreamer is the fourth superstar eliminated from the chamber. That leaves RVD and Jack Swagger to fight for the title. Henry goes over and tries to get the downed RVD, but RVD throws a chair into the face of Henry and hits the "Vandaminator!" Henry staggers back and forth until he falls to the mat.
Swagger charges to RVD and tries to land a clothesline, but RVD ducks the hit and hits Swagger in the back of the head with a chain that is wrapped around his fist. Swagger goes down and the crowd has ignited!!!
RVD gets the last table and sets it into the ring. He gets Henry up to his feet and puches him in the face with the steel chain. Henry lays onto the table. RVD climbs to the top rope. He climbs up and stands tall on top of and empty cell and panders to the crowd, "R...V...D!" He dives off and hits the "Five-Star Frog Splash!"
(Whoa! RVD has just done a maneuver that has never been done inside of the chamber match before!)
RVD slowly gets to his feet and turns around to Swagger, but Swagger hits him in the gut with a chair and hits his gutwrench powerbomb! He covers RVD, 1..2...RVD kicks out!!! Swagger is livid and now signals to the entrance way.
Paul Burchill runs down to the ring with a kendo stick at hand. He enters the chamber and starts to destroy RVD with it. Swagger hands him the chair. Swagger exits the chamber and gets his ECW title. He brings it back into the ring and taunts RVD with it saying, "You will never be this close to my title again!"
RVD low blows Burchill with his boot and superkicks Swagger. RVD gets the chair that Burchill used on him and hits him hard with it. RVD fusses at the downed Burchill. As soo as he turns around, Swagger hits him with the ECW title!
He gets RVD back up and hits him with another gutwrench powerbomb, (that I'm now deeming as the Third Degree!) He covers RVD. 1-2-3! Its over and still the ECW Champion, Jack Swagger.
Mark Henry slowly stumbles to his feet. Swagger gets Bruchill up. All three men with Swagger standing in the middle are raising each others' hands in victory. We cut to a Wrestlemania 25 promo video.
