More on The Future of ECW Stars: Where Are They Headed?

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that despite some reports indicating that ECW stars might be released when WWE NXT debuts in 2 weeks, the reality is that most if not all talents on the ECW roster will end up going to Smackdown or Raw.

The current story line in place, as we’ve been reporting, is that all ECW talents will become "free agents" when ECW is over, and that they’re free to sign with whichever brand they choose.

It’s also being reported that WWE intends to keep teams like Zack Ryder and Rosa Mendes together, along with the pairing of William Regal and Ezekiel Jackson when they switch brands. While WWE figures out what to do with all the ECW stars, it’s being said that they will appear on Superstars in the meantime to keep them fresh with the audience.
