CM Punk vs. Justin Credible (ECW on Sci-Fi, NYC, 8/1/06)
After little over a month of trying to get the new ECW established, they bring in a new star who would go on to carry the whole brand on his shoulders after 99% of the original ECW stars were released from WWE. This is his ECW TV debut. Huge “CM Punk” chants to start from the Hammerstein Ballroom crowd. Punk grounds Credible with a headlock. Credible backs Punk into the corner, but then charges into a Tarantula Choke. Punk springboards into a powerslam for two. Credible buries some forearms into the back. In other words, some jobber offense. Punk then flips out of a suplex and kicks away at Credible, but then ducks low off a whip and takes a suplex-suplex-bridge suplex combo for 1-2-NO! Rolling half crab is applied, but Punk POWERS out. He kicks Credible back and connects with a springboard clothesline for 1-2-NO! Punk whips Credible into the corner for a Running Knee Strike, followed by a Bulldog. The Uranage slam sets up the ANACONDA VICE and Credible is all like, “ring the bell, plz”. (4:13) Solid debut and you couldn’t have picked a much better crowd. Of course, I’m sure that was done on purpose. **
