— On tonight’s episode of ECW, Tommy Dreamer fought against Zack Ryder with his career on the line. Unfortunately, he was defeated by the young grappler, meaning that Dreamer had to make good on his vow to leave ECW forever.
Following the match, Dreamer went on a speech thanking the old and the new ECW, and told the WWE Universe they are his family â€” a family heâ€™ll miss.
“Thank you so much. I love you all so much,” he said, shedding a few tears.
With the loss, Dreamer â€” the last remaining member of Paul Heyman’s ECW on the new age roster â€” left his prized ECW T-shirt in the ring. Amid chants from the ring, Dreamer paused to hug his wife (former ECW performer and Penthouse model Beulah McGillicutty) at ringside and carried his daughters up the ramp as he said goodbye one final time.
Dreamer is legitimately parting ways with World Wrestling Entertainment as he requested his release from the organization last week.
— As announced tonight on ECW, former champions CM Punk, Mark Henry and Chavo Guerrero return for the “ECW Homecoming” on next week’s show, competing to determine who will face ECW Champion Christian for the title at the Royal Rumble on January 31, 2010.
