The entire office, production team and creative staff are really burned out from having to do nine-and-a-half hours of first-run TV last week. When it was over, the feeling was that it’s something that shouldn’t be done ever again. Vince McMahon, who prides himself in being something of an Ironman when it comes to endless work and never showing signs of being tied, was said to be showing his last week, particularly since he insisted on being all over television.
The 6/5 ECW with Vince sitting in a rocking chair was largely rewritten by Vince at the last minute and nod little resembled to the show ECW writers Dusty Rhodes and Dave Lagana put together. Their version of the show had no McMahon and no Lashley vs. 3 “ECW Originals” hardcore match.
To promote Brock Lesnar’s MMA match on Showtime, they showed a video package of Brock Lesnar at home. Brock’s wife, the former Rena “Sable” Mero was shown in the video package. Sable commented on her husband’s decision to enter the MMA business. They also showed footage of the two walking across a field.
