Plans are getting underway for the special ECW PPV coming on June 12th. WWE doesn't want it to be an old-timers show but rather a show that hopefully can stand on it's own as WWE would like to do more ECW-related shows in the future. WWE is trying to find a balance between former ECW talents that can still go like Rey Mysterio or Nunzio and talents that are broken down and older like Sabu or Mick Foley. In the case of beat down talent, WWE is trying to find ways to hide their current weakness and to book them properly so that they don't come off bad. The ECW fans will expect a lot and they don't want to leave them disappointed with bad matches.


WWE brass are having conversations with former ECW announcer Joey Styles and are trying to come to an agreement with him. He is slated to announce for Shane Douglas' show the night before. If Styles doesn't announce on the ECW PPV, Tazz, Paul Heyman or Terry Funk seem to be the front runners to commentate for the show.


An FBI "family reunion" seems to be in the works as Nunzio (Little Guido), JT Smith, Tony Mamaluke, Tracy Smothers, Big Sal E. Graziano, and Big Guido are all slated to appear.


Tickets are set to go on sale on the weekend of May 14.
The ballroom WWE will be using has approx. 2500 seats, so tickets will be incredibly limited and many fans will be left out in the cold. Prices haven't been determined yet.

There have been several meetings this week at WWE headquarters in Connecticut discussing the ECW One Night Stand PPV which is set for June 12 in New York City. It has been said that the WWE are looking for talent who can produce the type of matches that the ECW audience is going to expect and the talents who are older or beaten down physically and can’t perform as well as they used to however they are still expected to still get a big reaction as long as they have been booked in the right manner. Sources have said that WWE are hoping that the show can stand on it its own as a PPV and hopefully do more shows down the line, including possible house show tours in old ECW markets.

WWE has yet come to an agreement on who will be doing the commentary for the show. Sources have said that WWE and Joey Styles have yet come to an agreement for the show for him to do the commentary. However if Joey doesn’t wish to do it, the names that have been speculated are Tazz, Paul Heyman, and Terry Funk.

A type of an FBI "family" reunion is also scheduled for the ECW One Night Stand. Nunzio/Little Guido, JT Smith, Tony Mamaluke, Tracy Smothers, Big Sal E. Graziano, and Primo Carnera III who is also know as Big Guido back in the days of ECW.

WWE offices in Stamford, CT have said the tickets for the ECW PPV would go on sale the weekend of 5/14 but that prices hadn't been determined.
