12:33 pm: Steve Corino Gets Legal Threat From WWE, Retiring In 07.
Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Former ECW Heavyweight champion Steve Corino recently got a letter from WWE’s legal department telling him to stop using the name “The King Of Old School”, because WWE has trademarked the phrase “old school” for anything to do with pro wrestling. Corino has been using the name "The King of Old School" since his run in ECW in the late 90’s/early 2000’s.

He responded to the issue on his MySpace page with the following:

"A lot of fans have been asking me and leaving me My Space comments on the WWE owning the rights to the moniker. To be honest with you it doesn't matter to me. I have been the "Trouble King" in Japan for years because I have been a sneaky heel. I have never been the "King Of Old School" here because it is a hard translation. The King of Old School name would register under (if I am right) intellectual property of ECW (which of course WWE Corporation owns). They did not take it from me. In fact they have done right by me regarding the name. The problem with the name would lie if I signed a contract with TNA or WSX (national TV companies in the USA) and tried to use it. Since I have no plans on either they don't bother me. In fact I have the "King Of Old School" on my ring jacket (I will be getting a new one soon though with Trouble King on it) and no one says anything. The WWE could take anything they want from me except my name (since I wasn't original enough to think of a gimmick name) and at this stage of my career why would they bother doing anything to me? Although they could give me a job as a writer (hint hint, I would love to be able to write the ECW show) but I think I pissed in someone Cheerios long ago so I don't see that happening! LOL. I do appreciate the fans support and dedication though. Its touching to know that people still do care."

Corino also recently announced that he will be retiring at the end of 2007. While this isn’t the first time he has announced his retirement only to come back, he cites his recurring knee and hip issues as the reason for hanging his boots up for good.

WWE, always going and suing people for the dumbest of reasons. I guess Vince's wallet must be a little on the light side so he has to go after Corino's nickname...... meh.... to me, Corino will ALWAYS be the "King of Oldschool"

12:39 pm: Mike Awesome Passes Away.
The following story was posted by WWE.com today:
Mike Awesome passes away
Written: February 19, 2007

WWE is saddened by news of the passing of Mike Alfonso, better known to wrestling fans as Mike Awesome. He was 42.

Mike Awesome's first major exposure came overseas, where he became one of the Japan's top stars. Awesome would eventually become a star and champion in America while wrestling for Extreme Championship Wrestling. Following his successful run in ECW, Awesome spent time working in WCW and later WWE before retiring to his native Tampa, Florida.

While in ECW, Awesome was a two-time World Champion and Tag Team Champion. His matches with Masato Tanaka, including a show-stealer at One Night Stand in 2005 were among the most memorable in ECW history.

R.I.P. Mike Awesome, I give my respect to all his family, friends, and former co-workers.

03:01 pm: News on RVD and his WWE Status.
Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

The company is going all out to sign up RVD. Not because they want to keep him particularly, but just to stop him going to TNA. RVD though gives the impression that he's as good as gone.

Before the 1/16 show Vince and John Laurinaitis made a big speech about Sylvan being arrested for speeding as he was trying to get back from the gym to a show and as a result of that the boys are no longer allowed to go to the gym after checking in at the building.

RVD then said, in front of Vince to Johnny 'Ace' Laurinaitis and in a very mocking tone "Johnny, can we go to the gym before we come to building?" He sounded like a little boy who's at his last day at a school so knows he can say what he wants to his teachers.

03:33 pm: Answers to my Interview.
I was interviewed by sweetrapture82

1) Why did you start watching wrestling?

I got into wrestling because I was a huge Raven fan during the old ECW, his feud with Tommy Dreamer was something I have never seen before, a feud where they were kids fighting over a girl, they grew up and fought in the same promotion. I just loved it, and I have watched wrestling ever since.

2) Do you have a favorite author?

I am into a lot of Tom Clancy books, plus his video games are awesome as well such as "Rainbow Six" Mick Foley is also a great author :P

3) What are your favorite bands?

Oh man, too many to list: Korn, AFI, Alter Bridge, Staind, P.O.D., Slipknot, Stone Sour, Insane Clown Posse, Crazy Town, The Offspring, Kittie, Orgy, Adema, Linkin Park, Godsmack, Disturbed, Flaw, Ill Nino, Metallica, Deftones... ect...ect...

4) What's the worst television show you've watched?

Currently, Family Guy, I hate that show.

5) Who is the worst wrestler in the WWE?

Right now, I would have to say The Miz and Great Khali

03:25 pm: Oh joy Vince does it again and news on CM Punk.
Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

CM Punk's push is now completely dead. Almost nobody backstage likes him as they feel he's got an attitude that only the top guys should have. If he was a "top guy" like Kevin Nash people would think his comments were funny and cool, but as he's not a main eventer he's got an attitude problem. He won't be cut however as there is concern that he could become a star in TNA.

There are plans to bring in mini's dressed as Vince and Donald Trump.

Great, midegts, WWE is still going downhill. How people don't like CM Punk is beyond me, he is right now the best thing going on in ECW along with RVD, but WWE is not going to push either of them, I think that both should go to TNA where they can get the push they both deserve. WWE, you are a bunch of dumbasses
