December 11, 2000 Wrestling Observer Newsletter: ECW Massacre on 34th Street review, WWF Rebellion, more


Amidst rumors of the company being down for the count, Extreme Championship Wrestling put on a strong PPV show on 12/3, but more importantly, everyone was paid for one pay period (meaning everyone is now five weeks behind in pay). Nobody quit the promotion, which some had talked about doing if they weren't paid again.

The morale, which rises and falls based on whether or not the checks come, was said to be better coming out of the show. This was partially due to what most considered a strong show as well as Paul Heyman telling the wrestlers after the show about three shows in January including a 1/7 PPV date at the same Hammerstein Ballroom, which he is looking at making the home base of the company, and two sold shows to local promoters on 1/12 in Poplar Bluff, MO and 1/13 in Pine Bluff, AR.
