IN THE RING (THE ABRAHAM WASHINGTON SHOW)
Abraham Washington + ECW champion Tommy Dreamer + Vladimir Kozlov: Abraham Washington said after his show debuted last week, everybody seems to be talking about him (yeah, cause it was so terrible). Washington introduced his guest, the ECW champion Tommy Dreamer. Washington called Dreamer the “biggest Superstar in ECW history,” but then said he meant that literally – making fun of Dreamer’s weight. Washington made more jokes about Dreamer’s weight. Washington asked Dreamer what it was like to be the senior citizen aka living legend here at ECW. Dreamer said ECW has been his life, and is proud that Rey Mysterio, C.M. Punk, Chris Jericho, Evan Bourne, Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, and Eddie Guerrero all got their big break in ECW. Dreamer said he was even prouder to say he was the ECW champion today. Both men started exchanging insults before Washington hyped the number one contenders match tonight between Christian and Vladimir Kozlov. Dreamer said he wanted Christian to win tonight. Kozlov came out and confronted Tommy Dreamer. Washington wouldn’t let them get physical, but told Dreamer that this was the man he will face at Night of Champions. The announcers said Kozlov had to get through Christian first…
