Kick-Out's ECW Thoughts - June 23, 2009

Alright, gonna make this one quick because I need to post Kick-Out!! Radio.

Oh WWE, always trying to spoil me on Tuesday nights. Evan Bourne vs. Tyson Kidd? Yes please. Not as great as some of their previous encounters, but still, it's Bourne vs. Kidd, which means it's damn good. I liked Natalya and Smith being thrown out by the ref, an ejection is always a good way to get the crowd going. I'm a bit curious about Bourne winning though, after getting demolished by Henry last week, I thought this would've been the perfect opportunity for Kidd to pick up a cheap victory, but that was not the case. Bourne continues to have one of the best win percentages in all WWE.

I seriously cannot stop laughing whenever I see Zack Ryder. Decent match between him and Finlay and I think this may be one of the first times that I've ever seen someone work over someone's eye during a match. Finlay sold it brilliantly and got a lucky win after hooking the tights, but it serves Ryder right after trying to expose the turnbuckle. Good way to keep heat on Finlay heading into The Bash while not derailing Ryder's momentum.

Stand back, there's a Hurricane coming through! So great to see Helms back in the suit. I also think there's serious potential in a Hurricane/Swagger feud for the ECW Championship... I'm just sayin.

I didn't get to see most of the main event because my stupid DVR cut-off the overrun. I did catch Christian's crazy crossbody to the outside though. According to, Mark Henry & Jack Swagger won, then Mark got the Kane treatment where he beat up everyone in the ring and stood tall heading into the PPV on Sunday. Also like Kane, he has no chance of winning at the PPV.

Solid show, nothing groundbreaking, but still good. Plus, The Hurricane's back, so the show automatically gets some extra points. Stick around at Kick-Out!! Wrestling, the latest episode of Kick-Out!! Radio is coming soon.
