Report by Richard Trionfo, PWInsider
We start off tonight’s show with a look back at the possible end of Tommy Dreamer’s ECW career and his chance to win the title at Extreme Rules. Dreamer was able to overcome the odds and win the Triple Threat Match to become a two time ECW Champion.
We are live on tape from Biloxi, Mississippi and your announcers are Matt ‘Chong Li’ Striker and Josh ‘Frank Dux’ Mathews.
Tiffany is in the ring and she is joined by a table and two chairs. She says that history was made at Extreme Rules because the man who won the ECW Title at the pay per view also earned a new contract. Tommy Dreamer comes out with the ECW Title belt. Tiffany reminds Tommy about the challenge he made to himself five months ago to win the ECW Title. Tiffany congratulates him for accomplishing his goal. Dreamer says that it looked like this day would never come. He did not even think that this would happen. Dreamer starts to get emotional and he says that it was because of the fans that he won the title. He thanks everyone from the bottom of his heart. He thanks everyone for making this the greatest highlight of his career. Tommy prepares to sign his contract, but . . .
Christian comes out and he has a present for the cry baby. Christian says that since Tommy is thanking people, Christian wants to thank Jack Swagger for getting involved in things so they had a Triple Threat match where he did not even get pinned to lose his title. Christian calls Swagger a dork. Christian says that he will get his rematch and win back his ECW Title. Christian says that he is glad that Dreamer is still here and he shakes Tommy’s hand. Tommy almost gets to sign his contract, but . . .
Jack Swagger comes out and he wonders why Christian is shaking Dreamer’s hand. Swagger says that no one is happy that Tommy Dreamer is still here. Swagger says that everyone came to see him and not images of Fatty Dreamer’s rear end. Swagger says that Dreamer had no right to be in the match because his contract ended the day before the pay per view.
Tiffany tries to explain things to Swagger but Swagger cuts off Blondie. He says that the most it will cost Tiffany is her job. Swagger says that he talked to his agent and lawyer and they will represent Christian as well when they go to the Board of Directors to strip Dreamer of his title. Swagger says that Tommy can man up and forfeit his title.
Christian says that he thinks Swagger has a point. Maybe Dreamer should do the right thing, just like he is going to do. Christian punches Swagger and then Dreamer joins in as they clothesline him over the top rope to the floor. Dreamer signs the contract and he is back in ECW. While Dreamer celebrates Christian powerbombs Dreamer through the table and he puts the contract on top of Dreamer.

We are back and Tiffany is being told that some guy in green caused a lot of damage to the catering area.
