Former ECW/WWE talent and current TNA color commentary Taz had the following to say on his Twitter page about the announcement of the demise of the WWE version of ECW Tuesday night on SyFy.
“Point is, why not acknowledge the Paul Heyman’s contributions to the industry? Or, saying thanks to all the ECW original wrestlers? A lot of blood, sweat and tears were dropped during the original ECW’s life! If you are going to thank cameramen & directors (etc) than acknowledge the past history because its well deserved…I know for a FACT how proud Vince is of the WWE HOF! And he should be! I know for a FACT how proud Vince is that his highly successful company is in a position to ACKNOWLEDGE the past success of those who have paved the way for the industry! I know for a FACT that Vince feels its his (and his company) responsibility to recognize the successes of the wrestlers of the past…even if they never wrestled for the WWF/WWE!”
