All indications are that Vince McMahon was extremely thrilled with the WWE vs. ECW special last night. The talent backstage was also said to have liked the shows format as well. Vince certainly made the call to open things up and people noticed.
Vince McMahon was on headsets in the back and feeding the announcers lines to use against each other, and also encouraging the verbal jousting.
Stevie Richards (back to that name), Jazz, Little Guido (Nunzio), Big Show, and Justin Credible are all signed to ECW contracts.
