ECW doesn't really appeal to me anymore does anyone think that its a dieing brand?

I always wondered whether WWE should turn ECW into a sort of cruiser-weight division or maybe a platform for younger wrestlers to show who's the next big thing.

I feel like people like Evan Bourne, Rey Mysterio, Chavo, Carlito,Primo, Mat Hardy and alot of young high flyers might all benefit from this, only recently Evan Bourne said he was fed up of being a jobber when hes got so much in ring talent being wasted because he doesn't have the look of a "World Heavyweight Champion".

I think it would really counter TNA's X Division which was a brilliant idea but theirs alot of bad booking in TNA which is why i don't really watch it anymore but when the X Division are on the ball nothing can beat it.

By doing this i personally think WWE would breathe a bit of fresh air into ECW or maybe renaming the brand going by ECW and not being hardcore just doesn't make any sense to me.

Would like to know your thoughts.
