- The first MLW World Champion "The Franchise" Shane Douglas joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio presented by www.AdamEve.com, the official podcast of Major League Wrestling. Douglas spoke about deciding to hold his own ECW reunion event after seeing how former ECW stars were treated by TNA during their ECW reunion event.
"After Dixie Carter did her show [Hardcore Justice] and paid the guys a ridiculous sum of money, $250 to go out there and do what we do better than most people do, that to me was just so disrespectful," said Douglas. "For somebody who has been born and raised in a billion dollar household with a silver spoon in her mouth and up her backside, to ask guys to go out there and do that, for that little bit of money and then when it did better than any pay-per-view event in the last five years, didn't even offer so much as an extra penny on top of it.
"I said then and I stand by it, shame on you Dixie Carter that you'd expect anybody to do that in this day and age. At the same time she pays Ric Flair, 62, 63 years old, $35,000 a night. 60 year old Hulk Hogan, $75,000 a night and then somehow figures that these guys that come from ECW just don't have any value or worth at all. I plan on disproving that."
