This is very interesting and the mystery backer is a great story, wonder if you ever reveal the identity of him or her, but its obvious somebody who knows Heyman on a very personal level, Foley is a good shout but I could even see it being Raven, would be a great angle

Hoping that ECW can hold onto their top stars but expecting a big name departure, its bound to happen

Ain't this a nice surprise.

Nice to see you back around these parts, Szum. Riveting start to what should be a hell of a diary. Your one (or two?) ECW ventures were great, and I'm sure this one won't be any different. Will continue to follow for sure.

I love me some ECW reading and Jerry Lawler as the investor is really interesting, especially interested to see if you follow through with his real life WWF quiting in protest of wife's firing. Then choose whether, or how, to use him on air following such, as he'd be a real heat magnet still for his Extremely Crappy Wrestling words.

I wasn't around when you were posting shows before, but I've read your TTO thread and you're called one of the best for a reason. Intriguing start to the thread and I will be reading for sure!

"I bring you good mother fuckin' news."

???: "Oh yeah? How good are we talking about?"

Paul Heyman: "We're talking good like you're involved in a company that in a month's time, is going to be on cable fucking television!"

Nothing else needed to be said. The message, the ecstasy was clear enough. Extreme Championship Wrestling, effectively, had just been saved.

~Paul Heyman met with MTV at the very beginning of the month, and the critics who said they wouldn't sign a deal with ECW, was right. MTV and Viacom Inc. did not want to pick up another wrestling company on its TV Networks.

~However, Heyman had a meeting just yesterday with NBC Universal Inc. It appears that the NBC based company is much more willing than the CBS based company, as it can already be announced that Extreme Championship Wrestling has signed a television deal with NBC Universal Inc., and mainly, the USA Network! ECW and USA have been linked with a deal ever since the summer of 2000, when the World Wrestling Federation was trying to leave the USA Network for The National Network, the television channel that was broadcasting ECW at the time. While the move for ECW has taken a lot longer than expected, it seems that USA has finally decided to re-integrate wrestling into their broadcast; Raw is War was the number one rated show for the USA Network by far, and USA will be looking for ECW to help USA out in the ratings.

~With the news of ECW and the USA Network reaching a deal now rapidly spreading throughout the internet, the advertising for ECW will be at a new high point. ECWs Extreme TV will air every Friday night from 10PM to 11PM EST, starting Friday, March 30. ECW, which has only been running house shows for over the past month since running their Guilty as Charged PPV at the start of January, will hold another pay per view event just before the debut of ECW on USA when Living Dangerously airs on Sunday, March 25. Both Extreme TV and the Living Dangerously PPV are expected to be hyped heavily by USA in the run-up to ECWs debut on the network. For those who feared the worst for ECWs future, this is without a doubt the best news possible for the Philadelphia and New York based company.

~For anyone wanting to see any live ECW events in the build-up to Living Dangerously and the USA debut, sorry, it's not happening. Paul Heyman is continuing a "dark" period for the company, running no live events out of Viking Hall in the run-up to Living Dangerously. It seems that Heyman will have Living Dangerously be a one-off style of pay per view with no real build-up to it, apart from Guilty as Charged and other past ECW events. As of now, the ECW official website is promoting two triangle matches as the headline for the show. The first will be a match between ECW icon Tommy Dreamer and rivals Jerry Lynn and Rob Van Dam, and the second, the main event, will feature ECW World & TV Champion Rhino take on Sandman, who lost the World Title to Rhino at Guilty as Charged just moments after winning it, and the winner of the first triangle match. With Rhino holding both the TV and World Title, the match is being billed with both titles on the line in the main event.

~Paul Heyman continues to be very high on the current independent wrestler, Low-Ki. Low-Ki has been making a name for himself throughout America in the past year, as well as Japan. Low-Ki is currently a heavy favorite to win the 2001 ECWA Super 8 Cup. For those who are wondering, the Super 8 Cup will take place February 24. Depending on Low-Kis success at the Super 8 Tournament, he could very well land himself a spot in ECW in the near future.

~While Low-Ki possibly may work for ECW in the near future, it has been reported that a former ECW star will be working for ECW in the very near future. Whoever this wrestler is, he is expected to show up and appear at either Living Dangerously or the USA debut of ECW's Extreme TV, and be a fulltime member of the ECW roster once again. Rumors have been making the rounds as to who the wrestler may be, but at this current juncture, it is not known just who this mystery wrestler will be.

Nice update Szumi

Glad that Heyman got them a TV deal, this gives them real leverage and a certain amount of stability

With the fact Rhino has both belts maybe it would be a good idea to have the Living Dangerously main event a 2 fall match with the 1st fall for the TV title and the 2nd fall for the world title, would be a simple way to move one title off Rhino

Hoping the former star coming back is either Mike Awesome or Lance Storm, two of my favourites, dont think they have the funds to get a Benoit, Guerrero or Jericho back in

Look forward to the next post

Last night on Nitro, it was announced that the March 26th edition of Monday Nitro will be a "season finale" and a Night of Champions, meaning all titles will be on the line. At this point, all WCW programming will be canceled by the Turner networks, effective March 26. The last Thunder will air on TBS March 21st. The future of WCW programming is up in the air, as it does not look likely that AOL-Time Warner will ever be putting wrestling back on the network, regardless of what happens with WCW's future.

~The front runner to purchase WCW has been Eric Bischoff for most of the year, backed by Fusient Media Ventures. At one point in January, the deal was thought to be all but finalized, however, the decision by Jamie Kellner to cancel Nitro and Thunder from the Turner networks has thrown Bischoff's deal into complete chaos. Bischoff's attempt to purchase WCW is looking skeptical as of this writing, as Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation have inquired about purchasing their arch-rival. Both sides are working frivously to get a deal done within the week, and while the decision will most likely go down to the wire, many expect the future of WCW to be known by the time Night of Champions rolls around on March 26.

~With ECW's next pay per view event less than a week away, the ECW website has announced more matches to the card. Apart from the two previously announced triangle matches, it has been announced that Danny Doring and Amish Roadkill will defend their Tag Team Titles against the Unholy Alliance of Mikey Whipwreck and Yoshihiro Tajiri, and Justin Credible will face off against Balls Mahoney after his enemy-turned-partner Steve Corino walked out of ECW, ending the New Impact Players angle before it ever began. The tenative card is listed below:
3-Way Dance - Winner of 1st Fall wins TV Title; Winner of Final Fall wins World Title: Rhino (c) vs. Sandman vs. Jerry Lynn/Rob Van Dam/Tommy Dreamer
ECW Tag Titles: Doring & Roadkill (c) vs. Unholy Alliance
Balls Mahoney vs. Justin Credible
CW Anderson vs. Nova
Christian York & Joey Matthews vs. Full Blooded Italians vs. Hot Commodity
Simon Diamond vs. Super Crazy
Winner Goes to the Main Event - Jerry Lynn vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Tommy Dreamer
~With all the talk of WCW's potential demise, the company hosted what could have been its final pay per view event last Sunday with Greed, a PPV that had just over 5,000 people in attendance. The PPV was headlined by Scott Steiner retaining the WCW World Heavyweight Title against Diamond Dallas Page in a falls count anywhere match, and Dusty & Dustin Rhodes defeating Ric Flair and Jeff Jarrett. Jason Jett, who wrestled in ECW under the name of EZ Money, made his WCW pay per view debut when defeated Alan Funk in the opener. Former ECW stars Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, and Rey Mysterio Jr. all appeared on the Greed card, while former ECW alumni Dusty Rhodes, Konnan, Rick Steiner, and Hugh Morrus all also wrestled at the pay per view.

~Speaking of ECW talent heading to World Championship Wrestling, three ECW stars have signed with WCW since ECW’s last pay per view in January, Guilty as Charged. As noted previously, EZ Money has joined the company under the name Jason Jett, opening the Greed pay per view. Kid Kash has joined the company as well, along with Steve Corino. Both men are yet to debut for the company, despite Corino first signing with the company in January. With WCW’s future in such disarray, no other talent are being linked with the company. The World Wrestling Federation, however, continues to be showing an interest in top stars like Rob Van Dam, Jerry Lynn, and Rhino, as well as men like Yoshihiro Tajiri, Spike Dudley, Joel Gertner, and Simon Diamond.

~In terms of wrestlers coming into ECW, the rumors of Low-Ki joining the company in the near future have continued to stay strong. While the 2001 ECWA Super 8 Winner will not be appearing at Living Dangerously, he could make his ECW debut sometime within the next month. However, the rumor that a former ECW star would be making his return to the company at Living Dangerously has fallen cold. Paul Heyman had been in contact with both Sabu and New Jack about returning to the company, but the bad blood between Sabu and Heyman stemming from last year has apparently not been fixed, and the hardcore legend will not be returning to the company. New Jack was the wrestler most strongly linked with returning to the company, but New Jack has again run into legal problems, being arrested in New York this past month after a bar fight. Both men's potential futures in ECW now looks very bleak.

Just predictions and questions - not doing the match order this time around like I used to do in the past. Winner gets to pick a match of their choosing for the first or second Extreme TV in April, as that will be the first EWR booked show. Living Dangerously and Extreme TV for 03-30 will be written without EWR.

Now post some predictions, WF'ers!

All looks pretty good thus far, looking forward to seeing what direction you go in with this. Interesting idea with the World/TV Titles being defended in the same match, probably going to be a great read. I have a feeling Rob Van Dam may go back onto his TV Title streak and pick it up from where he left it when he had to vacate it in 2000 but that could just be wishful thinking on my part. Looking forward to seeing this progress further.

-

Glad you made the title match a 2 fall match, made so much sense

I think there is more Lynn Van Dam to come in this BTB, o Dreamer takes the win in this one

Some are hopes such as Unholy Alliance winning as I reckon Doring and Roadkill have had the belts long enough

Gutted Awesome and Storm arent coming back but knowing you it could be a red herring and hoping for the original Impact Players

Looking forward to Living Dangerously
