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.
What's probably happening is a combination of factors. First, the people who respond quickest to Keller are the folks who will always bash WWE and praise anything else. It's been like that since the Monday night wars.
