ECW & WWE Tidbits

The December 30th edition of ECW on Sci-Fi scored a 1.3 cable rating. Speaking of ECW you can now buy Supertickets for the ECW Themed Hardcore Reunion Convention set for March 2009 in Allentown, PA at this link.

Tickets for the AXXESS events during WrestleMania 25 weekend in Houston, Texas went on sale over the weekend. Hall of Fame Ceremony tickets go on sale in a few weeks.

Former WWE wrestler Steven Richards was recently released from the hospital. Richards was admitted to have a lung infection drained and that's now cleared up. He is at home resting and is said to be feeling better than he has in quite a while.

Ken Kennedy will be making an appearance at the Best Buy in Westland, Michigan on January 24th to hype the release of Behind Enemy Lines - Colombia. Seems a little late if you ask me though since the movie comes out on DVD tomorrow.

February's WWE Classics on Demand theme will be African American history month.

Last but not least Chris Kanyon announced that he is ending his wrestling retirement. Kanyon has moved to Queens, NY, and will take Independent bookings within a 250 mile radius. For more information on booking Kanyon visit this link.

WWE will be releasing book entitled "The History of DX" sometime in 2009 which will be narrated by Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

John Cena's merchandise numbers for 2008 were better than anyone's in company history except for Steve Austin during his peak years. In fact Cena's sales for the year were bigger than Hulk Hogan's during his peak in the 1980's.

There has been a definite crackdown of marijuana usage within the company and many of the talent are not pleased about it. Drinking is fine under the current "Wellness" policy and painkillers are fine with valid prescriptions, but the heavy marijuana users have been warned to cut back are beginning to turn to drinking and painkillers again.

MVP has been told that his losing streak will result in a face turn for him and MVP is accepting of this. He is also happy with his current jobber role because he is taking less physical risks and not getting banged up as much.

Kizarny has started off so poorly in WWE that there is already heat on Johnny Ace for backing him. Kizarny and MVP were booked on recent house shows with MVP dominating the matches only to lose via a fluke to keep his streak going.

Last but not least there are rumors out of Mexico are that that Dos Caras Jr. will start at the Royal Rumble.
