ECW news bits, all from Rajah.com....
WWE has signed a new deal with Jimmy "Akio" Yang. In his last stint with WWE he played a bodyguard for Yoshiro Tajiri and for a series of matches with Paul London.
It is quite possible that he will start out on the ECW Brand.
New Jack cut a promo at an independent show in Pittsburgh, PA Thursday night that he had signed a contact with WWE for their ECW project. According to sources within the WWE locker room, there is no truth to those claims.
WWE has, however, signed a mini wrestler from the Midwest known as Shortstack. Apparently the plan is to team Shortstack on SmackDown! as Fit Finlay’s sidekick.
WWE’s ECW One Night Stand PPV will air free of charge on Sky Sports 1 for United Kingdom fans at 1 a.m. that night. This move will cost them around 40,000 PPV orders.
Good, keep that piece od crap out(!)
Dave Scherer is reporting that Tommy Dreamer has signed a new wrestler’s contract with WWE to wrestle in the new ECW. For now, it looks as if Dreamer will also continue his duties with Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Dreamer has been a major part of the new ECW as he will be in charge of the project alongside Paul Heyman and has now agreed to return to the ring for the company.
The following is a statement from Francine's MySpace page:
