According to WrestlingObserver.com, WWE has gone to war in its attempt to recruit former ECW talent for the ECW PPV, tentatively schedule for 6/12.
With Shane Douglas planning an ECW reunion show on 6/10, WWE is using Tommy Dreamer to court wrestlers away from Douglas’ show. WWE has reached out to a number of wrestlers who it feels might otherwise consider working the 6/10 event.
It is known that Sandman was personally offered $5,000 to work WWE’s version of the ECW reunion. One can only assume that the other wrestlers contacted also received simiar four-figure offers.
