ECW On Sci-Fi: (Airing Tomorrow)
* Carlito w/Primo Colon & Brie Bella b. John Morrison w/The Miz & Nikki Bella
– Fast paced match. Morrison kicks Carlito off the top rope then dropkicks him outside. Morrison brings Carlito back in and puts a sleeper on him. The crowd is behind Carlito. Carlito regains control. The Miz & John Morrison try to leave but Teddy Long stops them. Long announces that the tag team unification match at WrestleMania will be a lumberjack match and several mid-card workers come out. Morrison gets back in the ring and misses Carlito with a kick. He becomes distracted by the lumberjacks and Carlito hits the backstabber for the win.
* Tommy Dreamer & Evan Bourne b. Jack Swagger & Tyson Kidd
– Another fast paced match. Kidd & Bourne start out going back and forth. Dreamer pounds on Kidd. He goes for tree of woe but hits Bourne with a splash instead. Swagger stomps Dreamer for a while and tags Kidd. He does the same and tags him back. Swagger beats up on Dreamer again. Dreamer connects with a belly-to-belly suplex. Dreamer gets the hot tag to Bourne who connects a shooting star press on Kidd for the win.
* MVP’s VIP Lounge is up next with all the Money in the Bank participants. A WrestleMania video package is shown and then MVP comes out. He gets a mixed response from the crowd. Finlay comes out to a big pop. Kofi Kingston comes out to an even bigger pop. Mark Henry is out next to a lot of heat. Christian is out to a huge pop while Shelton Benjamin comes out to heat. Kane comes out next to the loudest pop of the evening. CM Punk also gets a good pop. Basically each participant says that are going to win at WrestleMania and gives a reason why. Shelton draws major heat. MVP rubs in the fact that he is the United States Champion. Kane laughs at him and gets another huge pop. This concludes this week’s ECW.
