So this looks like the end of ECW, basically. Ah well, there's like what, 7 wrestlers on that roster? I guess we should get ready for some epic encounters like Big Daddy V vs. Kane or The Miz vs. Chuck Palumbo.
Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"
Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"
Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"
Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."
Has there been any information about WWE's TV deal with Sci-Fi or if the network wants to retain ECW? I heard the original deal was up in December, and while most of us (and, as one could guess from its low profile, WWE) would like to see ECW go away, Sci-Fi may want to keep the show. It still gets ratings in the 1.0 neighbourhood, which isn't bad for a cable show.
The problem is; like every other brilliant idea devised in the past two year, it is not increasing ratings. If the viewership of the show was increasing during l'affaire de Al, then the criticism could be ignored.
