Stryker's Teacher Gimmick, ECW Rating, SD!, & More

Believe it or not, Matt Stryker's teacher gimmick is based on a teacher Vince McMahon had as a child.

The 12/5 edition of ECW on Sci Fi scored a 1.8 cable rating.

I don't have final attendance numbers for the Smackdown shows for 12/4 and 12/5 in Lisbon, Portugal, but both shows were sold out in advance which is saying something due to the high tickets prices in that country.


From Mike Barnhard: Last night in Canada on the Comedy Channel, Edge and Roddy Piper were on a show called Punched Up where a guy named Charlie was helped in coming closer to becoming a wrestler. I believe BSE and Squared Circle Wrestling were featured in it as well. (I only caught the last half or so) It can be caught on replies later this week.
