Last night's interview by Tommy Dreamer, where he stated that his ECW contract expires in five-months, is basically a "shoot" being turned into an angle. Dreamer's contract does expire in June, and it appears as if this is an exit storyline for Dreamer as the word going around is that he is leaving the company when his deal is done. If and when Tommy Dreamer leaves the company, he will be the last of the "ECW Originals" to leave, as well as the last person that was part of the official relaunch in 2006.
