Alfonso Castillo of Newsday is featuring an interview with WWE personality Paul Heyman discussing the release of his new DVD and discussing the use of ECW nostalgia at the recent Impact Wrestling tapings in New York City.
“I think it’s very much time for anybody and everybody to move on, especially on a product that you’re trying to push forward. Nostalgia tours are great, but not in a youth oriented and dominated industry. I think the lesson learned in all this is that Spike TV didn’t renew them. And one of the reasons has to be that the most passionate reaction they can get is for a product that went away in 2001. And they’ve been trying to brand themselves since their inception and they can’t get it done. They should have spent that time and energy trying to brand themselves and not trying to elicit a response of an audience based on a product that they don’t even own.”
