As SmackDown had a double taping in Manchester, England last week, ECW will be taped before Monday Night RAW this week, at The Philips Arena in Atlanta.

After a long, gruelling European tour, the ECW Superstars will be in action on the final stop on the road towards Survivor Series this coming Sunday!

Matt Hardy, Finlay, & Kofi Kingston Vs. Mark Henry, Cody Rhodes, & William Regal in a 6-Man Tag Match is confirmed for the main event of ECW. My question is- what is Finlay doing in there? He's not even in the Elimination Match this is supposed to be a preview of.

I loved DJ Gabriel and Alicia Fox's entrance. Can't believe he's ben suspended already though, that's quite amusing.

DJ Gabriel – the newest member of ECW General Manager Theodore Long's New Superstar Initiative – made his debut on last night's edition of ECW on Sci Fi. With former wedding planner Alicia Fox in his corner, Gabriel defeated Sal Rinauro with the European uppercut, which is apparently his finishing maneuver.

Gabriel is Steve Lewington, and was signed to a developmental contract following the spring 2007 European tour in which he wrestled Umaga at the UK Raw taping. WWE signed a handful of European wrestlers following this particular tour including Lewington, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus O'Shaunessy, Hade Vansen, Chris Gray and Tommy Taylor. It looks like Lewington is the first wrestler of the group to actually make it in WWE as McIntyre was quickly sent back to developmental following a handful of matches. Gray & Taylor have since been released, Vansen is M.I.A., and Drew McIntyre & Sheamus are still plying their trade in Florida Championship Wrestling.

Lewington also appeared as a jobber on Raw during WWE's two tours of England in 2005. Carlito beat him up during a Cabana segment and he once wrestled Kurt Angle as a jobber.

:lol: That's made up, G2G. It hasn't been reported anywhere and it would be for 30 Days, not 21. I think he was making a statement about how muscular DJ is.

Sorry my bad...Yeah I made it up...

Take a look at Lewington from any previous tour where he has been used and now, and you will get my point though...

He does look a "little" different to when I saw him on the UK Scene.

Oh, and Matt Striker deserves kudos for getting Alex Wright, Steven Regal AND Marc Rocco a mention in the same show.
