[WWE] The Rock, Joey Styles on ECW, and BRUNO


– Joey Styles says he loved this past week’s edition of ECW on Sci-Fi.

“I would just like to go on record as saying that I loved this week’s episode of ECW on SciFi as much as I hated last week’s premier. In fact, I feel that this week’s episode of ECW is almost ( I say almost because I hate fireworks at wrestling shows and I always will) exactly what the NEW ECW needs to be in order for ECW to eventually be as strong a brand as RAW is in terms of worldwide television ratings, pay-per-view buys and live event ticket sales.”

– Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson underwent successful surgery yesterday. Johnson was having his Achilles tendon reattached, and has been given clearance by doctors to resume upper-body workouts.

– At least two ECW Monday night house shows have been cancelled due to plans to use ECW talent on Raw to promote the Sci-Fi show. These things are constantly changing, so if you’re trying to attend a house show, make sure you keep checking the schedules on ECW.com and Ticketmaster.

– IP readers in Pittsburgh that have an old-school wrestling fetish, take note: WPXI has a Bruno Sammartino special airing this Sunday at 9m.
