Heyman Blasts ECW Situation 

As we reported earlier in the week, WWE has allowed its trademark of the letters "ECW" to lapse, and as a result a company based out of New York has filed to trademark the name. When asked on Twitter about the situation, Paul Heyman responded with the following:

Dumbshits who think they can recapture the magic. Some people never learn! Letters don't mean anything. WWE's #ECW wasn't ECW. Any1 can buy letters. Big deal. ECW was based on ORIGINAL IDEAS! It's called "having an imagination." Obviously, trying to be a duplicate ripoff of the past is not "new" or "original" nor "game changing." #ECW was a product of its time. When I wrote @WWE #Smackdown in 2002/03, I didn't try to duplicate ECW. You move on with the times, people. #ECW One Night Stand was supposed to be a ONE NIGHT STAND. Not a way to re-marry your ex. If someone wants to take a try at re-doing #ECW, knock yourself out. Go for it. Maybe ur investment is smarter doing something NEW!!!
