UNIONDALE, N.Y. – When ECW Champion Mark Henry and Tommy Dreamer stepped in the ring, an X factor decided the outcome once again. But it wasn't a frying pan this time, rather Colin Delaney who helped the World’s Strongest Man retain the ECW Title at Nassau Coliseum.
Dreamer has had his eye on the gold seemingly forever, but especially in recent weeks. He has fought for chance after chance. Despite Henry’s ability to overpower the ECW Original along with WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas in his corner, Dreamer got his opportunity at The Great American Bash and he almost made the most of it. But the World’s Strongest Man was able to add more muscle to his campaign in the form of Dreamer’s protégé, Delaney.
Nobody has been able to slow down Mark Henry’s reign since he won the ECW Title at Night of Champions. And now with Delaney by his side, against the man who helped the youngster earn a WWE contract, Henry’s position at the top of the Land of the Extreme doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon.
