If you’re wondering why Jerry Lawler made an appearance at a recent ECW show, well, it was due to extremely low ticket sales. The 8/6 ECW show in Jackson, TN had only sold 300 tickets three days before the show. WWE announced that Jerry Lawler would be appearing at the show as a guest judge in a bikini contest between Kelly Kelly and Francine. Also, his appearance was heavily plugged on his Memphis-area TV show. They managed to sell 500 more tickets for the show. Ironically, ECW should be thanking “The King” for bailing them out of a potential embarrassment.
Jamie Noble is back on the road as he wrestled Gregory Helms at a SmackDown brand house show. He ended up losing the match. He did his “Pitbulls” gimmick at the show. Noble was taken off the road a few weeks ago because his tag team partner (Kid Kash) was suspended.
