Regal's suspension really derailed these two. Paul went from a possible feud with Kennedy to a three minute match ending in a clean loss and then moving on to lose to Kofi Kingston pretty much the entire time during their feud.
Also, what's with the incest angle stuff? If it never even began, what makes people think it actually existed? "Cause Vince wants one!" And? The oh-so-reliable reports said that it was the Burchill's idea. For all we know, they suggested it and one of the writers said "Dear goodness, no! You can be brother and sister though." That's just as likely as "Incest on TV! I can touch the ratings."
That said, I hope Burchill, who is a very good worker (and perhaps "too good" according to those old Jake Roberts Raw reviews), can help DJ Gabriel get some credibility with the crowd (I mean, he already has the dancing down...)
Finally, I at first thought this would be a joke thread since ECW ended with Hornswoggle and Finlay dancing in the ring with kids.
Random Filler Sentence Until I Have Something To Hype
Huh. ECW doesn't have any women's division; Alicia Fox doesn't really count. I suspect that Katie Lea will pretty much wrestle on Smackdown as a result, which will be a damn good thing. They need more women who can work.
Or more likely have Katie and Alicia wrestle for awhile. Alicia can work well enough, and the two of them have a better chance of getting a crowd reaction than their men did this week
He may have lost on ECW, but I think he came out of it looking like a bad ass. He kicked Gabriel's ass pretty much the entire match and then Gabriel scored the quick, from out of nowhere pin. And Burchill was pissed afterwards, I don't think this the end for Bruchill and Gabriel. If they can get a good feud going, and continue to have good matches like they did last night, both of them could come out of this program looking like a million bucks.
For every life you save... there's a million new ways to die.
