From the Desk of Tod Gordon:
I have received hundreds of calls and e-mails regarding what the WWE’s version of ECW looked like to me last night. Actually, nothing about the show was surprising to me in any way. It was what it was; a third brand extension of a stale wrestling product. If Paul Heyman and Tommy Dreamer have to worry about serving all of these masters from WWE creative (you know who I mean) to the Sci-Fi network, then any fan must realize you’re not going to get authentic crowd reactions, let alone chants on basic cable. I assume that rather than dub over the crowd’s vulgarity, it was easier to just feed them a crappy show so they could never get truly riled up. Enjoy it for what it is, but don’t fool yourselves into thinking that it really IS possible to catch lightning in a bottle twice, because that is not the case.
