Tonight's Episode Of 'ECW On Sci Fi' Is In The Books

The lowdown from Atlanta's Philips Arena:

- Just for the record, tonight's show was taped, because they needed the extra time for SmackDown's season premiere.

- Elijah Burke, Kevin Thorn, Tommy Dreamer, and Stevie Richards argued over which of them should get a shot at the ECW title. I didn't care, but for some reason, Armando Estrada did and placed those men in a 'Fatal Fourway,' with the loser of the fall being eliminated from a weekly series to determine CM Punk's challenger at 'No Mercy.'

- Shock of shocks: Richards is out, after being pinned by Burke and Thorn. Even I popped for some of the action (particularly in the last five, or so, minutes).

- Burke ran into, then bragged to, Punk. Punk insulted Burke. If you think you want specifics, trust me, you don't.

- The Miz introduced Extreme Exposé, so they could do whatever it is they do. Layla sure has a nice ass.

- Miz and EE stayed at ringside to watch Balls Mahoney defeat (just when I thought it couldn't get any worse than Miz) Mike Knox. Spinebuster-looking-thingy, pin. After his victory, Mahoney asked Kelly Kelly for a date. Before she could answer, Kelly was ushered away, leading Mahoney to take that as a, "Yes." Tazz actually said, "Yes is no. No is yes." It must thrill young girls' parents to hear those words uttered in such a context.

- Lots of Big-Daddy-V and Matt Striker, as they prepared for the main event and The Boogeyman.

- BDV (accompanied by Striker) defeated Boogeyman. Not much more than a squash, with Boogey probably bumping more in five-minutes than he has in his career. Not sure (nor do I really care) if this was designed as a burial, or if they're just that determined to build BDV as a threat for Punk's title.

If you missed the show, I wouldn't go out of my way to catch it. If you saw it, sorry.
