    the zombie sucks but, he is pretty funny. i mean he walked around like a total dumbass and he got on the mike and just went ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. LOL that was pretty funny.
     
  2. All the zombie was there to do was to show that sandman, and ecw were not going to tolerate asinine gimmicks, just like sandman beating eugene up at one night stand.

    the new ecw resembles wwe too much way too much. Vince mcmahon's idea of ecw is just hardcore no great technical matches no great highflying not to mention the crowd was barely involved I will give this show two more chances but the new ecw just seemes like a last ditch effort for wwe to get more ratings too raw and i still wont watch raw even if ecw guys are there i would rather watch paint dry on a wall then watch raw I was disappointed with the show but on the other hand i did not have high expectations for it either after all heyman is a figurehead

    I don't disagree with you, but Vince knows what ECW was like, One night stand and One night stand II, even the head to head usa special showcased that he had a good idea of ECW and that he could bring it back. Now, after looking back to tonights show, it looks like everything was just a big tease, but I'm not giving up hope yet on the "New Breed" ECW, I hope everyone else that knows what the real ECW was about doesn't give up hope on it neither. I will watch atleast the first twelve shows (to the End of the Sci-Fi deal) and hopefully we'll see improvement. If it bombs after that good riddance if it stops dragging ECW's name through the dirt. If it becomes a little successful and continues on another deal with Sci-Fi or USA and still sucks then I'll give up watching WWE wrestling for good! Hopefully we'll get atleast 10 good if not great matches from it before the end

    Zombie was the only portion of the show that I felt was 100% correctly booked.

    The Zombie and the Vampire were both 'ribs' at WWE characters and 'sci fi' as quite blatent ones, both sanctioned by Vince one assumes, for the simple purpose of showing that its not going to be ecw (sandman destroying em) altho the first show didnt bring alot, give it some time for them to get this ecw vs wwe thing out of the way, which I assume will be at vengence when rvd gets screwed for the wwe belt (why did he keep it otherwise) and heyman sayin they dont reconise the switch.. which is why he will remain ecw champ.

    The Vampire? It's grat to find out its Mordecai, but what was wrong with Mordecai's old look? It was "Sci-fi" so what the f-ck, why make him a Vampire? How are vampires and zombies even Sci-fi? There fiction yes, no science involved though when you consider these types of characters being around before Sci-Fi was even a term

    I thought it was pretty good. You guys are just spoiled. Although, the show was only an hour long and they decided to waste our time with a women strip dancing? That took up like a whole 1/8 of an hour And the show is only an hour! JUST WRESTLE THE SHOWS ONLY AN HOUR!

    Sandmans entrance is a metallica song therefore since WWE has no liscense to use Enter Sandman they will not be allowed to use Enter Sandman in ANY ECW shows. the only liscencee was Paul heyman and since he is no longer owner of ECW world Wrestling entertainment can't use the song unless they contact metalica.

    Actually the new ECW resembles the WWF way too much. The WWF era with gimicks like T.L Harper, The goon, Duke the Dumpster, Baston Burger. That's waht the Zombie reminded me of. These guys were kool looking jobers, who only won sometimes on WWF Superstars and Wrestling Challenge.

    I can already see that any bad idea will be perceived as Vince's.
    All great ones will be perceived as Heymans.

    ECW fans seem to be unaware that the Vampires are Heyman's idea.

    Vince just needs to give Paul complete control of the ECW brand and get out of the way.

    Guy's this will never be the ECW of old as Vince is going to keep moving wrestlers from RAW/SD that has not got any storylines to be used in and that he does not want TNA to get a hold of. Look u move Angle over to ECW to try and get some WWE fans that never watched ECW, Big Show at least was showing that he was a one man wrecking crew in the battle royale. That Vince should have played up in the WWE. If he is truly intends to let ECW grow as another brand extension then he needs to merge Raw/SD back together and move ECW to friday UPN slot after the SCI-FI deal expires. Give paul control of the storylines and matches. Vince takes care of the marketing and legal matters.
