I saw on WWE.com this:

http://www.wwe.com/shows/ecw/articles/5617438/partnershipforming

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.

Sci Fi has not committed to picking the show up. At 1.1, it may not be worth the effort, so WWE's plan is to try and prop up the rating with the SmackDown guys, since they're already in the building.

It doesn't sound planned as an exit strategy - they rather keep that TV money - but it surely could turn that way if things don't improve.

At 1.1, ECW is one of Sci-Fi's most popular programs if not the most popular except for Friday nights.

Kane got a really big pop tonight, after all these years, he can really get a crowd fired up. Still the best entrance and exit gimmick in wrestling.

I anxiously await JBL doing color on Miz matches again.

We all know that the only reason they are doing this is to build to the much-anticapted Wrestlemania 24 60-minute ironman match between the Great Khali and Big Daddy V.

To my surprise and joy, Vickie and Armando had real and true chemistry on camera. They stole the show with their backstage shtick.

I hope the ECW gang have as much of an impact on SmackDown as the latter roster had on the Tuesday show because they pushed Kane and Festus/Jesse hard.

The final match was a time-filler as an intriguing Morrison/Miz match was ruint by a Daddy V run-in and squish-squash.

I hope the CM Punk reign isn't going to consist of people working over his never-healing ribs.

Or-and here's a crazy notion-you could just not buy a ticket at all, and stop funding a product that you clearly vehemently hate!
