    Shelton Benjamin defeated Vance Archer in a No DQ Match. Shelton cut a promo. Cheap pop for starting off with 'who dat'. Wasn't happy when he first came to ECW. Said young superstars showed him what it takes to get into this industry. Said he'd miss everyone but Archer. Shelton got the early advantage. The fight went to the outside where Benjamin dominated more. Archer gained momentum when he speared Shelton into the side of the ring. Shelton blocked a shot from a kendo stick with a chair. Pretty cool. Archer got the upper hand again and rolled Shelton back into the ring. A medic came into the ring to check out Shelton. Wow. What a way to disrupt the flow of the match. Back in the action they scrapped for a bit. Archer took off a turnbuckle cushion, and went to work on Shelton's arm. After several minutes Shelton got momentum and his a couple of his spots on Vance. Benjamin hit Paydirt and got the pinfall at 10:23. A fun match that didn't really stretch the no DQ stipulation

Abe stands between Shelton and Vance. Vance says that Shelton's future better not put him on the same show because Shelton won't have a future.

Vladimir Kozlov comes to the ring and he announces something in Russian. Archer pushes Kozlov but Kozlov takes care of him and then Barreta and Croft. Kozlov and Benjamin stare each other down and then they shake hands

    Christian gets on the mic before the match and he says that it was a year ago he debuted on ECW. A lot of people said that he should have made a bigger impact and ECW was a demotion. Christian says that he has been doing this for 15 years and this feels like home. He was given the ball and the chance to run it. He was given the chance to face Tommy Dreamer, mentor up and coming superstars like Yoshi Tatsu. He says that he did most of it as the ECW Champion. He points out that he is the longest reigning current champion. He is fighting for everyone who wanted to make these three letters mean something. He is fighting for everyone in the back. He says that ECW goes away forever tonight but he will always be proud to be part of something great. He will be proud to be known as the last champion in ECW history.

    Putting Zeke over on the last show was stupid. He's going to end up on Smackdown and be a nobody.

    andy82 Your Soul, It's Mine!

    Agreed. I struggle to believe he can do anymore than just being one of Regal's body guards.

    Mike Want some Cheetos?

    On a third tier show like ECW, he could have been a top guy, but when you step into the WWEs best show, youve got no chance.
    But knowing WWE, they'll give him a Shemus like push
