Vito's Gimmick, SmackDown!, Stacy/Maxim, ECW Ratings, More

Vito has been wearing dresses anytime he is in the public eye while traveling for WWE, in order for him to maintain his character. Vito hasn t made a fuss about it in the slightest, he is acting like he is fine with the idea and enjoying himself.

WWE SmackDown next week won't air on Friday in Los Angeles. No word yet on where the show will air.

Stacy Keibler made #5 on Maxim's hot girls of 2006.

Inside the WWE, they are crediting the 2.8 ECW due to a mixture of curiosity over the new brand and the WWE RAW superstars appearing on the ECW debut. This is interesting as the opening segment, featuring Edge and John Cena featured the lowest rated quarter hour for the entire ECW hour, scoring a 2.6 from 10:00-10:15 PM. ECW s rating started to rise when Sandman vs. Zombie, Tazz vs. Jerry Lawler, and Kelly's first backstage promo aired from 10:15-10:30 PM. The high hour mark made a 2.9 from 10:30-10:45 PM with Kelly's striptease, Kurt Angle vs. Justin Credible, and the Extreme Battle Royal entrances. Once the Battle Royal itself started the rating dipped down to a 2.7 from 10:45-11:00 PM. The two minute over run featuring Sabu eliminating Big Show to win, scored a 3.2 rating.
