    • Big Show: You guys are different. Some of you guys... you guys (pats Orton and Carlito on their shoulders) Raw. Carlito: Oh yeah, exactly. Big Show: You guys... (pats Finlay and Lashley on their shoulders) Finlay: Smackdown! Big Show: Smackdown! (Raw and Smackdown stars cheer) But tonight, we're all WWE. WWE Wrestlers: I know... yeah... Shelton Benjamin: One big happy family.

    • Paul Heyman: You want extreme? You wanna feel extreme? You wanna learn what extreme is all about? Tonight, everything I had planned for this show is out the window. I’m going to take 10 of ECW’s best and they're going to go out to the ring for an extreme Battle Royal. All weapons are legal, the winner of the extreme Battle Royal is going to face John Cena at Vengeance, and just as important he is going to join ECW as we take the fight to Monday Night RAW.

    • Tommy Dreamer: (To Big Show) Last week in the battle royal, you were dominant. You got your very first taste of what it’s like to be hardcore, but if you wanna feel the heart and the passion of ECW, and if you wanna make a name for yourself here, then you have to go through me.

    • (During Big Show vs Batista) ECW fans: Change the channel! Change the channel! Tazz: Change the channel? But we like it here on Sci-Fi! What the hell is that about?

    • (During Big Show vs Batista) ECW fans: Change the channel! Change the channel! Tazz: No, no, you can't!

    • Kevin Thorn: In the dark, in the light, I am Kevin Thorn and the blood of ECW will be mine.

    • Balls Mahoney: Everything here is a little more extreme - balls to the wall you might say.

    • Paul Heyman: My name is Paul Heyman and I am the father of Extreme Championship Wrestling. This is my baby, my concept. ECW is my life. You know, I’ve never wrestled in an ECW ring. Never had to, until tonight. Tonight, I Paul Heyman, have been left with no other option but to fight on worldwide live television in an extreme rules match. Dr. Frankenstein must destroy his own monster. With these hands… with these hands I must dismantle my own disciple Sabu. With these hands I must crush my own monster, I must punish my own child. Tonight, live on ECW, I will pin Sabu 1-2-3.

    • The return of ECW was watched by 3.4 million viewers, the #1 show on cable television on Tuesday.

    • During the new diva Kelly's segment she had trouble unhooking her bra.

    • The debut episode of ECW on Sci Fi was originally supposed to air live on Tuesday 6/13/06, following that night's taping of WWE Smackdown! However, after watching this year's ECW: One Night Stand PPV, NBC, which is the parent company of the Sci Fi network, demanded that the show should, instead, be taped ahead of time. This decision was made due to the network's upheaval over the trademark ECW crowd chants, which they saw as too "rude." As a result of this, the show was taped before Smackdown! and throughout the entire show, the crowd was severely censored.

    • ECW scored a debut network rating of 2.8!

    • This is the first time ECW has been available to a national audience, via cable TV, since 2001 when the "brand" was a TNN show.

    Allusions (7)

    • Paul Heyman gives Tommy Dreamer a "Kiss of Death", an idea dating back to the kiss Judas gave to Jesus to let the guards know who to arrest. It is a sign of betrayal, as was certainly the case here as Heyman betrayed Dreamer.

    • Matt Striker: And there is a reason you'll never see me carelessly swimming in the ocean with stingrays... This was a reference to Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin, who was killed by a stingray 36 hours before this episode aired. Striker also grabbed his chest, pointing out where Irwin got struck by the stingray.

    • Bredan Walker: That Colin Delaney, man, I hear he's a real killer. Matt Hardy: Yeah, he's a real wildcat. A reference to the fact that when Chris Harris (Bredan Walker) worked for TNA, he wrestled under the name 'Wildcat' Chris Harris.

    • Matt Striker: Cody Rhodes has just been Cialis-like on his 3-day effectiveness. Cialis (Tadalafil) is an tablet drug administered orally for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It is marketed worldwide by Lilly ICOS.

    • Todd Grisham: To quote Stella, she once tried to get her groove back. The movie? How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998) stars Angela Bassett as Stella whose holiday romance with a much younger man (Taye Diggs) forces her to reassess her priorities in life.

    • When Christian interrupted Jack Swagger Matt Striker said, "This moment has just become instantly classic." This is a reference to Christian's nickname "The Instant Classic" while he competed in TNA.

    • Matt Striker: (about Jimmy Wang Yang) There goes the young dragon! When wrestling in WCW, Jimmy Wang Yang was a member of the Jung Dragons stable.
