[ECW] Details on Tonight’s Taping

One Night Stand drew 110,000 viewers on Sky Sports in the UK, down from 163,000 last year.

The next all-ECW taping is scheduled for 1st August from the Hammerstein Ballroom.

The 4th July all-ECW taping was moved from the ECW Arena to the Wachovia Centre due to Kevin Dunn. He put to Vince McMahon that NBC Universal expects a certain level of production values that could not be met in the smaller venue without spending a lot of money on various upgrades, which made it less expensive to move the taping to the larger arena where Raw and Smackdown were held the night before. McMahon agreed, particularly as he feels the old arena will not benefit his vision of a ‘new ECW’.
