– The word going around is that WWE will forgo renewing a number of the Legends marketing contracts when they expire this year.
– While details on the rebranded ECW, which will reportedly go under the name WWE NXT, remain scarce, sources have shed light on some of the ideas that were tossed around in the weeks prior to the announcement.
In addition to the much-reported talk of incorporating alternative/science-fiction elements to the weekly SyFy wrestling broadcast, an idea emerged to incorporate reality show elements into the program. The idea of building the show around interactive viewership participation also came up, although it is not known how seriously WWE took that idea given the relative failure of concepts like Taboo Tuesday and Cyber Sunday.
