I was thinking back to the mid-to-late 90's when a bunch of ECW guys were showing up in WCW. There was supposedly a "mole" in ECW that was setting up contracts or negotiations, and was later thought to be Tod Gordon himself. Gordon was reportedly ousted from his position in ECW.

Am I correct in my thinking here? Was Gordon ever officially found out to be the "mole"? I'm wondering if it was more of a case of ECW guys jumping ship on their own just to make more money. Any info would be appreciated.

I think I read somewhere that the whole "Mole" angle was just that..an angle. ECW guys were jumping ship so they made an angle out of it.

I don't remember this perfectly, but I do think it came out that Todd Gordon was woring as a liason between some wrestlers and WCW.

There was a column - somewhere? I'd guess 1 - where Todd sorta apologized without actually explaining what he did, which all by confirmed he had a role in it. After that, he broke with ECW and showed up in a nearby promotion leading an ECW army (of people who'd similarly burned bridges with ECW) against that promotion.

I'm sure that everyone who left was leaving to make more money elsewhere, or at least make it more consistently, but instead of them talking to a person in WCW directly, they'd use Todd as an inbetween person to avoid any contract issues - you're not tampering with some else's contract if you're just talking to a friend of theirs.

I believe Meltzer confirmed this, though I don't remember exactly.

The big event is tomorrow, and I don't want to miss anything. K, WM starts at 4:30 right? ok, then heat should start at 3:30, right? ok. I assume there won't be any dark matches, just cuz it's such a long show anyway, but what do I know?
