– Regarding plans for the ECW Championship at WrestleMania XXV, well, there aren’t any.
Unless plans change just before the show (or they do a dark match), ECW Champion Jack Swagger will not be defending his belt at the pay-per-view.
Vince McMahon lost faith in Swagger after his lackluster outing with Finlay at last month’s No Way Out pay-per-view. While McMahon still wants to push him, they don’t feel he’s ready for live television quite yet.
Had McMahon decided on letting Swagger compete at WrestleMania, his opponent would have been Evan Bourne.
In another sign indicating the company has no plans on having an ECW Championship match take place at WrestleMania, company officials opted to make next week’s edition of ECW on Sci Fi an “All-Divas” special promoting the 25-Diva Battle Royal instead of building towards something regarding the ECW Championship at the event. Following next week’s show, there will only be one week to go and almost no time to build up an ECW match at WrestleMania. WWE wanted to make use of next week’s episode of ECW to at least promote something relevant regarding WrestleMania, hence the “All-Divas” special.
