If I were booking, what I would have is RVD and Bobby Lashley shake hands at the beginning, have a great competitive match, have RVD go over, shake hands at the end, then Lashley blasts him from behind.
Oh, and also, I'd want to bring in Bill Alphonso as Lashley's new manager. Lashley recruited him because he knows RVD. And that's what I would do, DADDY!
That is very logical, pushes the feud further, and makes a hell of a lot of sense - hence, WWE will never, ever think of it.

Listen listen listen, there's gonna be a heel turn come Tuesday. If they're smart, they'll go with a Lashley turn backed by a sweet ass mouthpiece, like a Fonzie or a guy wearing a suit. Or you could have T. Lo get forced out by JBL (read wwe.com) after losing a specialty match at Royal Rumble and move over to manage the "Great Black Hope" Bobby Lashley!
If they have RVD turn, you need to give him his original gimmick of "The Whole F'n Show", claiming the only reason anyone watches ECW is because they're diehard fans who still believe in the true ECW, and want him, RVD, as the champ, and all the others are just brainwashed posers! (a good tweener persona going here) Then CM Punk comes out and starts talkin about how RVD is a shell of his former self and is selfish. Get a good feud that can last til WM XXIII. Then get a feud going with (wrestler), and have a loser leaves ECW match at ONS III, which after losing, RVD can sit out the rest of his contract, which should end by then.
I'll admit that I had faith after the ONS PPV's but it was quickly destroyed after watching the first show. I did however enjoy the feedback on the Wrestling Observer website (with regards to the first show) as it couldn't have been more accurate.

I seriously wanted to see a heel turn when Lashley beat Big Show for the last time. I think faces need more charisma than heels. It's easy for a big jacked up athletic heel to walk around like King Kong and destroy everything in front of him. But when you're a face and you're supposed to be this exciting nice guy it just doesn't work. Lashley would have been way better off defending as a heel. If not then they should have given the belt to Test but ECW doesn't have any faces ready for the belt, IMO, even Rvd. Rvd is past. They need to start building the young guys up now while keeping the belt on a monster heel that no one can beat. Big Show was on the right track and now thay he passed the torch, I think they need to resume to the monster heel champion method and build up some young faces. That's just my opinion

Lashley is the future of WWECW so there is not a shot in hell of RVD winning.
Then at the Rumble, it'll be Lashley vs. Test for the WWECW title. Not that anyone would give a crap anyways.
By this time next year the "Best of WWECW" show will be hosted by Brad Armstrong and Kelly Kelly, with such highlights as:
-Chris Masters becoming WWECW Champion -The return of Kelly Kelly's Expose -ONS3 ending with Cena, Batista and the entire Raw/SD roster urinating on the ECW banner in the Hammerstein Ballroom -Khali vs. Henry (the newest Extremist) in a 60-minute classic
That something as inherently ridiculous and trashy as wrestling should be analysed in such an obsessive and cynical manner. It's just a bit of fun!
