Ah yes, quite the crackerjack spoilers. Who needs to mention that pesky Tag Team Title Unification Match anyways?

ECW on Sci-Fi Match Results- March 17, 2009

United States Champion Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry (with Tony Atlas) def. Christian & MVP by Shelton Benjamin pinning Christian following Pay Dirt.

Evan Bourne (in his return to action) def. Jamie Noble by pin following Air Bourne.

Finlay def. Paul Burchill by pin following the Celtic Cross.
Having Swagger not appear on the show would have made more sense than to have him make a pointless appearance. They could not have coughed up a jobber to feed to Swagger in a match?

TPIB, why did you post the results when G2G had already done that in the previous post?

He posted spoilers, I posted the results. With spoilers the way they are, that's two different things.

Would you rather I post my This Week In WWE piece? Here it is:

The 145th edition of ECW on Sci-Fi came to you from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. Confirmed for for the St. Patrick’s Day ECW was the long-awaited return of the high-flying Evan Bourne.

ECW on Sci-Fi
Good Week For: Evan Bourne (made a successful return to ECW)
Bad Week For: The Burchills (Katie Lea got doused in corn beef and cabbage by Hornswoggle and Paul lost to Finlay)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: The WWE Divas (as ECW will host the first-ever "All Divas" special)

And In Other News…
The opening match of the night was a special preview to the Money-in-the-Bank Ladder Match as United States Champion Shelton Benjamin teamed with "The World’s Strongest Man" Mark Henry to defeat the team of "Captain Charisma" Christian & "The Ballin’ Superstar" MVP.

Evan Bourne made his return to ECW and made it a successful one by defeating Jamie Noble. What’s next for Evan Bourne?

In a revolutionary idea presented by Theodore Long’s assistant Tiffany, next week’s ECW will be a special "All Divas" show; a special featuring nothing but WWE Divas!

Earlier in the night, Katie Lea Burchill was doused in corn beef and cabbage by "The Little Irish Troublemaker" Hornswoggle. Outraged by what happened to his sister, Paul Burchill demanded he get a shot at Finlay tonight. It was not a good night for the Burchill Siblings as Finlay pinned "The Ripper" in the main event.

World Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison also made an appearance (with The Bella Twins) on ECW to host a special edition of "The Dirt Sheet". Miz & Morrison ask the Bellas why they like Miz & Morrison and Nikki Bella was quick to note that they like "winners". Miz & Morrison wasted no time in mocking the WWE Tag Team Champions Primo & Carlito. Primo & Carlito interrupted "The Dirt Sheet" and brought out the set of "Carlito’s Cabana". The two teams got in each other’s face and Primo & Carlito laid down a history-making challenge for WrestleMania. The Colons challenged Miz & Morrison to a World Tag Team & WWE Tag Team Title Unification Match, where the team that wins the match wins it all by taking home both the World Tag Team & WWE Tag Team Titles and will be crowned the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions! The World Tag Team Champions boldly accepted the challenge. Primo & Carlito then "loaded up" some apples and aimed to spit them in the face of Miz & Morrison, but "The Dirt Sheet Duo" ducked and The Colons accidentally sprayed apple all over Nikki Bella, much to the amusement of her twin sister- Brie Bella. A furious Nikki then attacked her sister! The two Divas brawled and in the end, the Bellas were split as Nikki Bella left with Miz & Morrison and Brie Bella stayed with Primo & Carlito. Which Bella will be with winners come WrestleMania? Which team will make history by unifying the World Tag Team & WWE Tag Team Titles and becoming Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions?

Next weeks ECW is all divas?
OH GOD.
Its actually a brave move from the WWE and i would be interested in watching it. They maybe trying something new, TNA have seen the Knockouts are actually a good source of ratings (some of there segments are the highest rated) I think it might be a good way of testing the water to see if the can draw on there own, if they can they man look to do something else in the future.

Besides its not like ECW is much **** anyway, nothing will be lost from trying. I don't say this much but as a fan of female wrestling, well done WWE
