Not much is said about it. He wasn't on television that much at all. Stinks that it was right before the holidays.

And what happened to Roadkill?

I guess it makes sense to release the guy if he wasn't being used, but couldn't it have waited two or three weeks?

It's more Extreme to release someone this way.

*blink, blink* Danny Doring was still on the roster? Really?

I would say that this is a sign that maybe they ought to add a second hour to ECW, but let's face it, the show is bad enough with only one hour, and they'd just fill that extra hour by transferring more WWE guys off RAW and SmackDown, anyway. ECW Originals have been getting shafted from Day One.

Fairly certain he's down in OVW... and has shaved.

Yeah, he apparently wrestles as "Braddock" now. Here's a page with a pic:

I'm not necessarily seeing the improvement, gimmick-wise.

How, may I ask, can anyone 'improve' on a gimmick where you are a an angry Amish chicken-fucker?

The pure ridiculousness and eccentricity of the gimmick makes it memorable, it made him stand out, and people noticed him.

As opposed to now, where he just looks like a tubby indy dude.

I think it's telling how much people cared about Danny Doring when the first response is "where's Roadkill?" and subsequently Doring's name is mentioned a grand total of one other time (until now). Isn't ANYONE going to get smarkishly indignant?!

From something original and brilliant to something dull and mundane. Didn't I read somewhere that Vince was high on him?

Note: Amish Braddock (for lack of a better name) isn't listed on OVW's website. Where did he go?

Doring's talent was that he could sell, and talk better than Roadkill, who couldn't put two words together.

Doring and Roadkill were terrific at getting the crowd to care about their matches, especially the hot tag to Roadkill, for his 90 seconds before he'd get blown up. That and the 90 seconds anticipating the hot tag was classic old school storytelling. Together, they helped round out ECW midcards, but there is no question they were very over with the crowds every night.

But both were shorter guys, and wrestled shorter guys in ECW. They look weak compared to any of the WWE guys.

ECW has no tag division (the WWE doesn't really care about tag teams any more anywhere), so there has been no use for them.

I agree that it sucks to lose a job so close to the holidays

I already made that joke, but actually I like your version better. Hee!

History has shown that you're absolutely right, but right now seems like a bit of an odd time to be making that claim:
  • DX
  • Rated RKO
  • MNM
  • Hardyz
  • World's Greatest Tag Team
  • Cryme Tyme
  • Highlanders
  • Cade & Murdoch
  • Kendrick & London
  • Regal & Taylor
Sure, Smackdown seems a little thin (are James and Stevens still together? And where are the Gymini? I never see Smackdown), which is a compelling argument for Justin's dream réunion of La Résistance, but this is the best the WWE tag team scene has looked in years. Sadly.

I think it'll end up being similar to when Austin came back the last time. He signed with Flair just to stick it to Vince then beat up Flair because that's what Stone Cold does.
