DEADLOCK Podcast: Revisiting WWE ECW on Sci-Fi 2006 The First Episode, The Zombie vs The Sandman, The New Breed Unleashed, RVD Is WWE & ECW World Champion, Extreme Battle Royal, Kurt Angle Destroys Justin Credible, DEADLOCK Q&A

The New Breed is Unleashed as Extreme Championship Wrestling returns! ECW One Night Stand #2 has just happened which called for the relaunch of the ECW brand. This time it’s different as it’s under the WWE banner. We take a look at the very first episode of ECW on Sci-Fi. Because it is on Sci-Fi we get a LITERAL Zombie on the inaugural episode and he takes on none other than The Sandman. Rob Van Dam, who had previously won the WWE Championship at One Night Stand, is awarded the new ECW Championship. Edge shows up and spears RVD while John Cena shows up in the crowd as mayhem unfolds. Kurt Angle is now known as “The Wrestling Machine” and he proves it as he gives no offense to Justin Credible in their match. In the main event, it’s the first ever Extreme Battle Royal which sees the winner taking on John Cena at WWE Vengeance. Plus, The DEADLOCK Q&A is back!
