Hardcore Holly will be undergoing elbow surgery as soon as his program with Bobby Lashley is finished. Considering that he lost cleanly to Lashley at last night’s ECW show, and then Gene Snitsky did a run-in after the match, it looks like the feud is done and over with now. The Lashley/Holly feud was scheduled to be a relatively quick one.

Gene Snitsky’s profile is now in the ECW section. When the profile was put up late last night, it briefly had pictures and information from his time on RAW, but all mentions of his past (sans his WWE debut date) have since been removed. It seems like they want people to forget about his time as a low-end midcarder & perennial HEAT wrestler on the RAW brand. Prior to his return on Tuesday night, Snitsky had been kept off of television since October.

The 1/30 ECW show did a 1.73 rating with a 1.28 in males 18-49, a 1.29 in males 18-34. The show attracted 2 million viewers overall. WSX going head-to-head with the second half-hour did an 0.78 rating (not 0.99 as had been reported originally) with an 0.99 in persons 12-34 and 945,000 viewers overall.
