Well, ECW is towards its end,and as per the news the other show to be launched is NXT.

The thing to ponder over is why did the ECW failed, why it could not reach the same heights as RAW & SMACKDOWN.

For one, as it was not Vince's brain child, it was always treated as step child of WWE, it never got the attention and credit due to it.

It would not be wrong to say Vince never tried to do any good to ECW.It was always a mid-carder's show.At times wrestlers like Chris Benoit, Matt Hardy were sent to it but that too couldn't helped though.

So, with the ratings touching the new lows every week, it was a wise decision on WWE's part to call it of.I believe our Captain Charisma & Mr. Gold Standard(Shelton Benjamin) will be shifted to RAW or SMACKDOWN while posibility is that few superstars could be sold.I believe they should have been given enough limelight which they deserved.

I doubt will NXT be able to conquer the forts where ECW lost its battle.Its quite an understanding that NXT will feature new talent.

But the point is, will it offer any thrill or curiosity to a casual viewer, who just tune the channel to see how there superstars are doing.

Will this show be able to add new viewers combined with the viewers of ECW or eventually meeting the same fate as ECW does.

Who knows what tommorow will bring.Lets hope for best!!!!!!.
