According to PWInsider, Tommy Dreamer has requested his release from WWE. The final ECW superstar leaving is pretty sad to me, as an old school ECW fan. I know Vince never really gave ECW a chance, and only used it to market DVDs and a "new" ECW show on SyFy.

Its sad to see him go, but I'd really love to see him in TNA, if just to be a guy who could put on a half decent brawl, or to help younger guys. Either way, FAREWELL Tommy Dreamer!

Does it surprise anyone that Vince has also failed with ECW since its going to be more of a Superstars show in the near future? I am a big Tommy mark and I will miss him. Its another departure that takes me away from wrestling thankfully, it wasn't as bad as Eddie or Benoit. To me, WWE lost the only everyman character they had and one of their universal faces.

Oh good. With that title I thought it would be accompanied by the RIP icon. Since it says he requested he release, then I will pull the WWE route and wish him well with his future endeavors.

Tommy worked for Vince longer than he did Heyman, the main difference being his check has actually cleared for the last 8 plus years.

Glad I got to see him live win the ECW champ. this year at Extreme Rules PPV. After the event he was one of the only wrestlers that stayed and signed autographs for fans by the loading dock. I wish him will on future endeavors. Maybe TNA is in his future?

I don't know how much he's got left to offer from an in-ring standpoint, but I can't see him just retiring. I hope he's happy wherever he winds up. He always struck me as one of those guys who just really loved wrestling and would do whatever he could for it. Maybe there's an agent spot in TNA or ROH for him?

I think there's a pushed spot in TNA for him so he's like "I want to go to there." Maybe on January 4th the ECW Originals reunite to take on the Pope Breed w/ the returning Monty Brown.

I thought Monty was still under WWE contract or did they cancel it when he choose to raise his murdered sisters' kids?

Nice to see loyalty is still low on all wrestlers' priorities. Let's face it, WWE have stuck with him longer than anyone could realistically expect.

I'm amazed they kept him as long as they did as well. But to be fair, WWE has fired injured/sick wrestlers and referees, fired a pregnant Diva, fired referees and agents who thought they were lifers, cut legends from their contracts (here I'm thinking Superstar Graham in particular), and refused to acknowledge the deaths of recent and/or long-term employees. Any wrestler who shows loyalty to WWE in hopes that it will be rewarded in kind is an idiot, plain and simple. It's a business and nothing more. They'll keep you for as long as they can use you and throw you away when they're done with you. If Tommy Dreamer figured that out and can get a better deal and a better spot in TNA (if that is indeed what he's doing), more power to him.

I think it's a dumb move on his part. He'll probably get to tag with Abyss against Raven and be on PPV for a coupla months, but once that feud is done he's either back to jobber status or cut loose again like so many of those who find themselves involved in TNA's Abyss angles. I'd wager that, had he stayed with WWE, he would've been employed for longer and for better money than what TNA will bring him.

Isn't Tommy married with two kids? I guess the schedule for TNA would work better for him, then.

He's been gainfully employed under Vince for countless years. Maybe a change of location would be of some benefit.

If anything, I'm tired of watching a watered down Tommy Dreamer. Let's see him really shine. Bring him, Sandman, and Justin Credible to TNA - unless that's not in Hogan's vision.

Fun fact: the peak of Raven/Dreamer (and thus, the peak of Dreamer) is even older the peak of the nWo.

Fun fact #2: Tommy Dreamer cried after losing the Hardcore Title to Rob Van Dam 7.5 years ago.

I can't believe that THIS THREAD right here even exists! Man, it's Tommy Dreamer! It's not like Shawn Michaels or Triple H is going to TNA or something like that!

And by the way: ECW closed down almost ten years ago! IT'S OVER! Don't bring anyone back! (and I love Sabu)



Yes, I'm back! I know, I said I would never ever watch that crap again, but ... I just can't live without it, I guess.

If you have a problem that this thread exists, take it up with StaggerLee! He is the one who started it! For that matter, I don't think anyone is upset that Tommy Dreamer is leaving! It is more of a mild curiosity! "Huh! How about that! I wonder what he is going to do now! There probably aren't a lot of jobs in the wrestling world for Tommy Dreamer in 2009!" Those are a close approximation of my thoughts on the matter!

I actually look forward to him mixing it up with Abyss, Raven, Foley and Stevie again. The guy can still put on a good brawl.

He never worked with Abyss, did he? Or does the "again" refer only to Stevie?

I don't know about a move to TNA, but he'd be a great indy card draw, like at PWG's Kurt Russellmania (prowrestlingguerrilla.com) or something.

Tommy is more known for his backstage help then anything else. I think at some point Vince put him in as an agent then he went back to being a wrestler when ECW came back full time. If TNA gets Tommy as an agent and an occasional hardcore wrestler then its a good move. Also, Tommy is not Shawn or HHH, but I actually care about his matches were I'm 50/50 with Shawn and could care less of HHH wrestled another match ever again. So, to me I don't mind this thread being around, lord knows there have been worst threads on this site.
