Evidently the ratings were really good. Sounds like they rivaled raw and smackdown. Alot of the ppl watching were ECW faithfulls, along with some WWE fans that tuned in to see cena/edge and see what it was all about. The show bombed, so I"m sure not as many will tune in next time. Although I guess some younger WWE fans enjoyed it, and thought the battle royal was extreme. But, heres my question, will this hurt or help ECW IMO? The arguments go both ways. Raitings were good, they exceeded expectations, and were above the goal level for ECW. This shows that ECW can suceed if done right. There is a market for it. Along with PPV sales being good last year, and this year for ONS, vince has to be seeing $$$$ signs, and seing this as a good business opportunity. Ratings were good. Paul E. Wrote the script, then from what I"ve heard, Vince changed alot and Paul wasn't happy. Raitings were good so now Vince looks like a genius? HIs ideas made the show. This could be, and we could see more of the same. Evidentlyt here was some heat between them on the show, one of my guesses is the angle credible match wasn't suppsoed to be a total job, we know it was supposed to be an alien supposedly and not a zombie, but what else? Less promos? Less flashbacks? Less of the WWE interference crap? The only ohter thing I can think of was the battle royal was supposed to showcase ECW talent and wrestling, isntead of big show running around killing everybody, ECW stars randomly beating ppl with signs, and no actual wrestling. So, how do you think the ratings will affect the future vision and direction of what is being called ECW? Will I tune in next week? Yeah. If it sucks will I keep watching, probably. I'll probably tivo it after a month if it dosn't get better, and just keep hoping it gets better.
