- WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who recently underwent neck surgery, tweeted on Thursday that his “Piper’s Pit” show is returning, in some capacity. He wrote:

“PIPER’S PIT IS COMING. No body right now hs the ball’s. gotta have the guts!!”

“NO ONE CAN BEAT ME IN LESS THAN 5 MINUETS!!..Maybe Hornswaggle”

“WWE don’t have the guts to pit, CM Punk, or Drew Mac. Nash, HHH”

“They still don’t have anybody in WWE that could put me out in 5 minuets or less”

– WWE has released referee James Maritato (aka Little Guido/Nunzio). He is taking independent bookings (as a wrestler) through Bill Behrens, who can be reached at ShowBis@aol.com.

  • FLOCKA!!!

    never trust anything u see on wiki lol

  • Joe2

    Oh yeah that’s right, got it mixed up with another match.

  • venom

    I never heard of Bret Hart wrestling for ECW.

  • shaneo

    @joe2:

    Bret Hart didn’t wrestle Terry Funk at ECW’s first PPV. Terry Funk wrestled The Sandman and Stevie Richards then wrestled Raven for the title and won

  • D2K

    I’m calling it right now. CM Punk on Piper’s Pit. BOOK IT.

  • venom

    I forgot that there was actually talented guys that came from ECW. When I hear ECW, I think of washed up guys in TNA.

    @Sammo & Joe2

    Unless Y2J (or better the Lionheart) comes back, then yes, Rey is the only one who wrestles.

  • Sammo

    Ah yes, of course, I forgot about Jerry Lawler being in ECW for that feud. Good call.

    Austin and Malenko occured to me – but they’re not active roster members. Nor are the others you mention. (I know Nunzio wasn’t either, but active wrestlers was the question I was getting at)

  • Joe2

    @Sammo

    I was curious if you were correct on that so I looked up the WWE personnel list on Wiki and this is what I came up with:

    Jerry Lawler did a cross promotion with ECW in a feud with Tommy Dreamer.
    Joey Mercury, who is now a trainer down in FCW, wrestled for ECW under the name Joey Matthews.
    Dean Malenko is a producer still for WWE.
    Stone Cold Steve Austin is signed under a Legends Deal & Tough Enough Coach
    Bret Hart is signed under a Legends Deal and wrestled Terry Funk at ECW’s first PPV.
    Joey Styles is the Director of Digital Media Content for WWE.

    So there are a few left, none who are really in the wrestling portion.

  • ironcross

    He should find a midget / dwarf Pro Wrestling Promotion

  • Sammo

    Is Rey Mysterio the last current roster member who ever wrestled for the original ECW?

  • Stick Stickly

    I was wondering if WWE ever put notice to existince or was everyone suppose to think he was some normal old referee

  • moi

    he was/is and he was good… too bad that once again he is gone….

  • Effmenow

    Nunzio was a referee?
