ECW on SyFy Report – December 1st, 2009
Report by Richard Trionfo, PWInsider
We are live on tape from Hampton, Virginia and your announcers are Josh ‘Leaving on a jet plane’ Mathews and Byron ‘Any more people coming from Tampa’ Saxton.
We begin tonight’s show with the segment that you wish was not there. The Abraham Washington Show featuring Abe’s guests Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendes.
The crowd shows their love for anything but Abe as he kills time before he brings out his guests. Abe asks Tony how his Thanksgiving was and he mentions how his whole family came to his house. Abe tells Tony to shut up because he was rambling. Tony asks Abe about his Thanksgiving and Tony starts to laugh about something that wasn’t funny and Abe tells Tony to shut up again. Abe stays on the good side of the fans by insulting the state of Virginia. Then Abe tries to prove his point about the lack of intelligence about people from Virginia by asking Tony where he is from and Tony says that he is from Virginia.
Abe’s guests come out and sit on the sofa. Abe asks Zack about his relationship with Rosa. Zack says that he has a poem for Rosa and he wants to read it. Zack reads his poem and ends it with his woo woo woo catchphrase. Rosa has a poem of her own. While Zack’s poem was all about Rosa, so is Rosa’s and she speaks in Spanish but is probably something not too positive about Zack. Zack pulls a Tom Cruise on the sofa.
