ECW On Sci-Fi (Airing At 10 PM EST)
ECW opens up with CM Punk talking about ruining Chavo Guerrero's Mariachi Fiesta last week. Punk invokes his rematch clause, saying that he wants it tonight against Chavo for the ECW Championship. ECW Champion Chavo Guerrero comes out and tells Punk that he will not get his rematch until No Way Out.
ECW General Manager Armando Estrada comes out and says that Chavo will take on CM Punk tonight in a Gulf of Mexico match. It is explained that the point of the match is to throw your opponent into the Gulf of Mexico and obviously it will not be for the ECW Championship.
