Paul Heyman Says People Need to “Move On” From ECW Nostalgia

In a new interview conducted by Alfonso Castillo of Newsday, to promote the upcoming “Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman” DVD, Paul Heyman had the following to say regarding ECW revival tours:

“I think it’s very much time for anybody and everybody to move on, especially on a product that you’re trying to push forward. Nostalgia tours are great, but not in a youth oriented and dominated industry. I think the lesson learned in all this is that Spike TV didn’t renew them. And one of the reasons has to be that the most passionate reaction they can get is for a product that went away in 2001. And they’ve been trying to brand themselves since their inception and they can’t get it done. They should have spent that time and energy trying to brand themselves and not trying to elicit a response of an audience based on a product that they don’t even own.”

Drew McIntyre Getting Title Shot

Thanks to reader Matt P. for sending in the following:

Last night I went to the Magnum Pro Wrestling show in Omaha Nebraska, during which Matt Sydal and Sonjay Dutt both had excellent matches. It was a great independent show, and they announced Stevie Richards and Trevor Murdoch will be at the show next month, and Drew McIntyre will get a title shot as well.
