Hulk Hogan, Backstage News On Lashley’s Move To ECW

Ryan Clark

From Seth Drzewicki: I was watching The Late Late Show with Craig Feguerson last night. He was doing a segment where he responded to viewers emails, one of the q’s was: if you were a wrestler, what would your name be? Craig said “I would be English Simon”, which Craig went on to explain as being a gay wrestler. In a horrible impersantion of Hulk Hogan, Craig said “I would wrestle Hulk Hogan and he would say, your a fag brother.”

Regarding Bobby Lashley’s move to ECW, he is close with Paul Heyman (Heyman got him called up to WWE a bit early) and he convinced both Lashley and Vince McMahon that he should make the jump. There is skepticism from people internally because Lashley is going to be pushed as ECW’s top star, but the feeling is that he’s not ready for that sort of position, even on the C show, and won’t be able to draw. He will be a strong babyface because McMahon feels that ECW needs another strong babyface. Although, there is talk of turning him heel and having him feud with RVD or CM Punk in the future. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he won the belt at ECW December to Dismember. Also, reports of Lashley leaving because of problems with Michael Hayes have been denied. It is now being said that he was promised the top spot in ECW, and with Batista around on SmackDown, he’d never get that spot, and that’s why decided to change brands.
