ECW Draws A Low Rating, Ashley Massaro Update, Shane McMahon, Raw Pre-Sale
— Last night’s edition of ECW on Sci-Fi drew a 1.0 rating, reports prowrestling.NET. The show was watched by 1,441,000 viewers. The number is down from last week’s 1.1 rating, which drew a total of 1,617,000 viewers. This appears to be the lowest-rated episode in the show’s history in its regular Tuesday night time slot. It should be noted that last night’s episode faced the title clinching game of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, so that likely played a part in show’s lower than usual rating.
— If and when Ashley Massaro returns to World Wrestling Entertainment, she will be coming back with a brand new tattoo. She has added a new tattoo with Chinese writing surrounded by some type of red dragon on the side of her torso. She got the tattoo done at SmackDown star Shannon Moore’s tattoo parlor a few weeks ago. She posted a picture of herself showing off the tattoo on her MySpace page, but you can see the image at this link.
— In a correction from a report over the weekend, Shane McMahon did not skip Sunday’s WWE show in Sydney, Australia to attend an Australian Rules Football Game at the Olympic Park in Sydney. He was at the show as Shane came to the ring two times. Thanks to Glenn Thomas for sending that along. He did also attend the football game though. Speaking of Shane, he created a large buzz among the national media out of Japan after opening WWE’s newest international office there. McMahon met with national celebrity and Japanese TV personality and announcer, Mr. Kusano. A picture of the two appeared on yesterday’s edition of the Tokyo Sports newspaper.
