Vince McMahon was always apprehensive about giving the man he put in charge of the ECW brand, Paul Heyman, the creative control over an all-ECW pay-per-view, and after last night’s disappointing December to Dismember, Vince feels he was justified in his concerns. Heyman and McMahon butted heads multiple times before and during the show, with Heyman particularly upset about Vince’s opinion on the Extreme Elimination Chamber match, the version that they actually went through with. Heyman felt that The Big Show, the reigning ECW Champion, should have been eliminated first by CM Punk, guaranteeing a new champion would be crowned. The Big Show was even on board with this plan, happy to put over a young star like Punk, but McMahon thought that the idea was a terrible one. Vince instead said the fans wanted to see Lashley eliminate Big Show last and then end the show with a huge celebration. That’s what happened on the air, and it was obvious that the fans were less than thrilled.
Now this morning, we have received word that Vince has officially pulled the plug on the ECW brand. Blaming Heyman for the show ending nearly 30 minutes early and also what are sure to be terrible buyrates, Vince has asked Heyman to leave the company. Heyman apparently was happy to leave, calling the last six months that the ECW brand has been featured a “living hell” working under McMahon. Along with the ECW brand being pulled, Vince has decided to release some superstars, send some back to development, and also designate some as “free agents” who can sign with either Raw or Smackdown! within the next month. Here’s the list of superstars in each category.
Christopher W. Anderson
Little Guidio Maritato
The Great Khali
Back to Development:
Marcus Cor Von
Rob Van Dam
One name that does not fall under any of these three categories is the man who lost his ECW World Heavyweight Championship last night, The Big Show. Big Show has been asking the company for some time off for months now, as he has many nagging injuries. Had ECW still been around, Big Show would have cashed in his rematch this Tuesday before taking some time off, but he said he is fine with just taking his leave now, without a rematch. The man who defeated him, Bobby Lashley, will NOT be bringing the ECW Title to whichever brand he decides to sign with, as the title has been retired by the WWE.
So now that the WWE is back to having only two brands, the next PPV scheduled is New Year’s Revolution, a Raw-only show that is scheduled for the beginning of January. As it stands, Umaga vs. John Cena for the WWE Title and Rated-RKO vs. D-Generation X are the two main events set to headline the show in Kansas City.
Raw and SD! recaps through New Year's Revolution to follow in the next week. Enjoy!
