Harry Smith’s WWE Debut Delayed, Diva Search, ECW

Ryan Clark


WWE was thinking about having Harry Smith debut at last night’s SmackDown taping in England with a “fan out of the crowd” gimmick similar to Santino Marella earlier in the year. The idea was for him to be a fan in the crowd who accepts a SmackDown wrestler’s open challenge and then beats him. The taping came and went, and Smith didn’t appear on the show. He did a dark match prior to the Raw taping in England on Monday and was over huge once he got on the mike and told the fans that he was the son of “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.

The 2007 WWE Diva Search Winner will be announced on the 10/29 Raw in Philadelphia instead of at Cyber Sunday the night before. The final three contestants, Brooke Gilbertsen, Eve Torres, and Lena Yada, will appear live next Monday on Raw to make final impressions for the fans.

Starting today, you can watch ECW in its entirety in a single, uninterrupted video on WWE.com. The video isn’t online yet, but it will be later today.

Here in New York, ECW is now shown on Channel 17 for Time Warner Cable subscribers.

In this week’s update for WWE 24/7 On Demand, one of the BIG ONES is the infamous pay-per-view that hosted the first-ever Hell In A Cell Match – Bad Blood – and this is also the pay-per-view where during the Free For All, Vince McMahon announces that Brian Pillman had died earlier in the day. Well, to my surprise, WWE has edited the pay-per-view. During the first match (A Handicap match between Legion of Doom versus Nation of Domination – Rocky Miavia, Kama Mustafa and D’Lo Brown.) McMahon reminds the TV audience of the announcement regarding Pillman that he made earlier on. Then instead of going to a screen shot of McMahon, Jerry”The King”Lawler and Jim Ross where McMahon announces that the Pillman vs Goldust match obviously won’t take place and instead a Six Minis Tag Match will take place which leads into the Six Minis Tag Match, it goes directly to the WWE World Tag Team Championship Match between champions, The Headbangers versus The Godwins.
