ECWWrestlingNews.com is reporting that Joey Styles attacked WWE fans during his promo on RAW last night because WWE wants to make ECW a heel promotion of sorts to everyone except ECW fans. When the original ECW was around, a large percentage of ECW fans had a strong dislike for the mainstream options (WWE and WCW) and WWE is trying to recreate that feeling among the new ECW fanbase without salvaging WWE’s reputation and name.
Based on what is known, Sabu was not backstage at the RAW taping last night in Columbus, OH. There were reports earlier this week stating that he could have possibly been meeting with WWE officials regarding the new ECW brand.
WWE.com has added photos and an article about World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio throwing out the first pitch earlier today at the Cincinnati Reds & St. Louis Cardinals game.
CiN Weekly has interview up with Booker T.
