Why Finlay/Hornswoggle Moved To ECW, Atlas Ortiz Update
By Ryan Clark | July 03, 2008
Regarding Hornswoggle's transition to ECW, he was moved from SmackDown as not to break up his popular act with Finlay. However, the feeling is that Hornswoggle isn't a good fit on ECW. ECW is not really a kid-friendly product and his main appeal is to children under the age of 10.
Tuesday night's edition of ECW on Sci Fi drew a 1.4 cable rating, a huge increase over last week, not to mention the show's best number in a while.
As noted earlier, ECW's newest Superstar Atlas Ortiz is a former football player, having spent time in the XFL, the Canadian Football League (CFL), the Arena Football League (AFL), as well as the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad in the National Football League ten years ago. His real name is Rich Young and he played at Tulsa in college. His profile from his time in the Arena Football League is still online, and you can see it at ArenaFootball.com. He looks significantly different in the photo they have posted compared to how he looks now.
