Test, during his time in ECW.

On March 22, 2006, WWE announced that Test had verbally agreed to return to WWE after competing in dark matches before RAW and SmackDown!.[3] Subsequently, vignettes began to play during ECW on Sci Fi, announcing that Test was coming to the ECW brand of WWE. He made his debut on the July 4, 2006 episode of ECW, defeating Al Snow, and punting Head into the crowd after the victory.[3][5] Test played a vicious monster heel, as opposed to the somewhat arrogant heel he played in the past. This led to Test receiving a fairly large push which resulted in Test being victorious for the entirety of 2006 in the ECW program (with the exception of his loss with Team Big Show at Survivor Series 2006 and being eliminated in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at December to Dismember 2006). His victories included defeats over the likes of Tommy Dreamer (on more than one occasion), Balls Mahoney, Sabu, The F.B.I, Hardcore Holly, and most notably, Rob Van Dam, in a memorable and well-performed Extreme Rules Match. Test's first real angle in ECW placed him as part of a feud between new ECW and old ECW stars, first teaming up with Mike Knox, and enveloping other newcomers, Big Show and Matt Striker, against "ECW originals" Rob Van Dam, Sabu, and The Sandman.[3] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...
