Report by PWInsider, Richard Trionfo



We start off tonight’s show with a look back at ECW’s contribution to the Hell in a Cell . . . wait, there was no ECW match? Instead we get a video package of William Regal’s attempt to usurp power from Tiffany after her accident.

We are live on tape from Trenton, New Jersey and your announcers are Josh ‘Bazinga’ Mathews and Matt ‘Would you like a chocolate’ Striker.

He gives his best wishes to Tiffany as she continues to recover. Regal knows that the decision to make him interim general manager but he has the experience to do what is right for the WWE Universe. Regal talks about how he was prohibited from making any changes to the ECW title, (but since it wasn’t on the pay per view who cares [not that Regal didn’t say that]). Regal announces himself the number one contender.

Zack Ryder comes out and he says that he is not going to have this happen again. He had his match taken away and then Regal cost them the eight man tag match. Ryder calls Regal ‘bro’ and Regal calls Ryder ‘Sunshine’. They argue until Christian’s music plays and he comes out.

Christian talks about how this is compelling television to see them argue about who should be the number one contender. Christian has some proof to show why they should not be the number one contender. Christian brings out a janitor, Laughing Tony Atlas, and Yoshi Tatsu. Christian talks about Angelo the janitor and how he changed all of the urinal cakes in the bathroom by section 105 so he has done more than Regal or Ryder and deserves a title match. Christian reminds us that despite being with Abraham Washington, he is still a WWE Hall of Famer. Christian has Tony laugh for the fans. Christian moves on to bachelor number three. Yoshi won a few matches and even pinned Regal and Ryder. Regal complains about Ryder’s inexperience and then Christian tells Bill to calm down. Regal tells Christian to stop calling him Bill and in an instant poll, Christian is still going to call him Bill. Christian says that Yoshi is the most deserving of a title match. Yoshi and Christian thank each other a few too many times. Christian tells Bill it is not up to either of them. Christian says that he found the General Manager.

Tiffany comes out in a sling and she thanks Regal for filling in last week and she says that he did an admirable job. Tiffany says that nothing is going to stop her from presenting the youngest and hottest talents in the WWE. Tiffany has not chosen a number one contender and all of them will be in action tonight. Zack Ryder will get his rematch against Christian. Regal will get to face Yoshi Tatsu again. Zeke and Vlad will be in a tag match.
