I have to say, I didn't get a chance to watch ECW last Tuesday. Why? Well, it had become stale over the past couple of weeks.
With Matt Hardy gone and Finlay in a program with Jack Swagger, I really lost interest. Well, anytime Finlay and Horny are on TV, I lose interest.
So when I found out that Christian debuted on ECW I kicked myself in the head. I was not expecting it but lets be honest. No one was.
I finally got a chance to watch the show last night and I'm excited. I believe this is what ECW needed. More star power and an exciting bunch of younger talent. This is a great formula.
Yes, this wont be the "real" ECW of Paul Heyman, but it seems this show has great potential of becoming must see TV.
Knowing how this show is focused more on Wrestling instead of story lines, lets look at the talent:
Christian, Finlay, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, Miz, Morrison, Tommy Dreamer, Evan Bourne, Tyson Kidd with Natalya (young hart foundation), DJ Gabriel and Alicia Fox, Jamie Noble, Paul Burchill and Katie, and the Boogeyman! (ok...the last one was a joke!)
There is a lot of talent in the brand and who knows if the WWE decides to send D.H. Smith to ECW to form the Hart Foundation instead of Legacy.
The talent is there, a bit of good writing and some good wrestling and you got a GREAT show.
For all those who believe Christian shouldn't of been sent to ECW, you might be right. However, I would rather have Christian on ECW and having me look forward to watching RAW, Smackdown, And ECW instead of only 2 shows. Plus we all know that ECW talent usually appears on RAW or Smackdown.
Just look at Miz and Morrison. They have a feud with Cryme Time on RAW and Carlito with Primo on Smackdown. So don't be surprise to see Christian on Smackdown in the coming weeks.
