Melina got involved during the match, pulling on the leg of Matt Hardy. When Matt went after her, he got taken out with a big clothesline from Mercury. They did a big spot with Matt flipping over the top rope to take out Mercury on the outside, which then saw Nitro go over the top followed by Jeff that got a big reaction from the crowd. Jeff later took out Nitro and Mercury with a whisper in the wind that Matt followed up with two side effects. MNM came back with a snapshot on Jeff, but Matt made the save.

– Balls Mahoney defeated Matt Striker. Striker got on the mic before the match and told the referee to enforce all rules as this match was NOT under extreme rules. Lots of back and forth action between the two. Better match than you might think. The finish saw Mahoney hit a spinebuster on Striker to get the pinfall.
– CM Punk was shown warming up for tonight.
– Backstage, we see that Sabu has been injured and he will no longer compete in the Extreme Elimination Chamber tonight. The fans in Augusta didn’t like this decision at all.

The finish saw Dreamer go for a DDT, but Daivari countered that into a schoolboy for the pinfall. After the match, Khali came back out and slammed Dreamer on the entrance ramp. Medics came out to help Dreamer, but Dreamer got up on his own as the fans cheered and he headed to the back.
– Backstage, Hardcore Holly is talking to Paul Heyman. Heyman announces that Holly will replace Sabu in the Extreme Elimination Chamber tonight for the ECW Championship.

It was all Knox and Thorn early on in the match until Kelly Kelly and Ariel got the tag. The finish saw Knox refuse to tag Kelly and he walked out on the match. Ariel then hit Kelly with a leg trip and got the pinfall.
After the match, The Sandman made his way through the crowd and drank some beer. Sandman had a singapore cane in hand and took out Thorn with it.

Order of entry for the Elimination Chamber: Big Show (in pod with barbed wire bat), CM Punk (in pod with steel chair), Test (in pod with crowbar) and Bobby Lashley (in pod with table). Rob Van Dam and Hardcore Holly will start the match. CM Punk was the first out of a pod with a steel chair. Punk threw his chair at RVD, but RVD caught it and threw it back at Punk. Next in was Test out of a pod with a crowbar. RVD was cut open at this point and Test went after his cut with the crowbar. RVD got a steel chair and took out Hardcore Holly, Test and then Punk in the corner. RVD then hit a Five Star Frog Splash on CM Punk and got the pinfall – CM Punk is eliminated. Test then took out Hardcore Holly with a high kick and got the pinfall – Hardcore Holly is eliminated. Test then puts a steel chair on RVD, climbs up Big Show’s pod, jumps off and connects with an elbow on RVD over the chair – Rob Van Dam is eliminated. Test then awaited the entry of the last two participants – Bobby Lashley and Big Show. Paul Heyman’s security guards prevent Lashley’s pod from opening. Lashley, who had a table inside the pod with it, makes a hole to free himself from the pod. Lashley then takes out Test with a Spear – Test is eliminated. We are now down to Bobby Lashley vs. Big Show with the ECW Title on the line. Big Show’s pod opens and he enters with the barbed wire bat. Big Show swung the bat at Lashley, but Lashley blocked it with a steel chair. Lashley then threw Big Show into a pod, busting Big Show open. The finish saw Lashley block an attempted chokeslam from Big Show into a DDT. Lashley then connected with a Spear on Big Show to get the pinfall to become the NEW ECW World Champion.
