Yeah to an extent, when they would do their crossover stuff.
The real reason why was money. They didn't have any. People doing work for the business outside of wrestling for no extra pay or sometimes wouldn't get paid at all. If Eric Bischoff would come up to you and say I'd like to pay you $100,000 (or whatever) a year and all you have to do is wrestle maybe 2 or 3 times a week and travel is low, what would you do? I think it's shitty but business is business and with ECW there just wasn't any money. I'm very surprised on how long ECW lasted.
