Tommy Dreamer Says ECW Was Funded By WWE From the Beginning

Published

on

ECW legend Tommy Dreamer says that WWE funded Paul Heyman’s creation since day 1, even though it appeared, at times, that ECW was competing with Vince McMahon’s WWE during 1990s, and the infamous Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW.

“I did not find out that Paul was in bed with them until we did any episode of Byte This together and he said it on the air and if you watch my face you can see it” Dreamer said, during an interview with WSVN-TV Entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet .

“The story changes all the time, Jim Ross who was the head of talent relations at the time says they were in bed together all the time and that Paul Heyman would get checks, but Paul said he didn’t get checks.

“It’s many, many conspiracy theories. Shane McMahon told me Paul was in bed with WWE the entire time. Bruce Prichard said he was in bed with them since day one.”

Dreamer also talked about All-In, where he was seen walking with Cody to the ring for his NWA World Title match against Nick Aldis.

“Honestly, when I saw NWA’s YouTube show ’10 Pounds of Gold’ and Cody talked about Dusty’s five guys I seriously got all teary eyed. Then when talking with Glacier and DDP they were like we didn’t know that either.

“So now we’re forever connected. A lot of people say in life you can count your friends on one hand or you’re lucky if you can count them on two and for the fact that Dusty Rhodes counted three wrestlers that were part of his five guys, it was an amazing, amazing thing that we all witnessed together.

“Cody is someone I hired into WWE and The Young Bucks I use them all the time on my shows and they were like my main eventers before people thought they were main eventers. They’re my guys.”

Chris Jericho Says It’s Fun Not Working for WWE Right Now

Chris Jericho is having a blast working for various promotions around the world, and even shocking fans with surprise appearances like he did at the ‘All-In’ event, and while Jericho has long been associated with WWE, and is a future WWE Hall of Famer, he says that he is having fun not working for Vince McMahon right now.

“There is a whole market now for hardcore wrestling fans,maybe not even hardcore anymore” Jericho said, during an appearance on Busted Open.

“There’s a whole strain of fans of wrestling that are excited about all of these other options. “I mean, I didn’t think there was any chance of me doing All In, but at this point in time, sure there’s a chance. I mean if there’s a match that’s presented to me, that’s interesting, if I’m free, like, like why not?

“Like, I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency and realizing why do I have to just keep it in Japan? What if I do want to do more stuff in the States? I’m not really worrying about what anybody thinks” Jericho continued.

“At this point in time, I think for the first time in my career in 28 years, I’m kind of completely in control, and it’s fun, ya know?

“I really enjoy not having to run my ideas, that I know are gonna work, through a committee of two or three people, or having to wait three hours in front of a door to go pitch it to one guy and hope that he likes it.

“At this point in time, we’re all pros, and we know what works, and what doesn’t work, and if we’re not sure we can ask other guys, and kind of work together.”

“In WWE when you work there, once again, you gotta go with whatever it is that he [Vince McMahon] wants to go with,” Jericho explained. “That’s fine. When you work for Vince that’s just the way it is. But, it’s fun to not work for Vince right now, and have some of these other ideas you can kind of explore.”
