– With Christian’s appearance on the “Abraham Washington Show” as the only promoted ECW segment, this week’s edition of the weekly WWE series dropped in the ratings. The show posted a 1.14 rating, a decrease from last week’s 1.25. Moreover, it is the worst performing Tuesday night ECW since the implementation of the “new talent initiative.”
– WWE made a strange modification to its roster recently, changing referee Justin King’s name to Noah Wilson and developmental referee Rod Zapata’s name to Rod Vista. Given that WWE has a policy not to identify referees by name on television–Chris Jericho, for instance, had to do a double-take when he started mentioning Charles Robinson’s name–it is odd that WWE felt the need to use gimmicked identities.
