> OFF AIR NOTES FROM RAW- W-O Newsletter reader Amy S attended RAW yesterday and sent in these
off air notes. After cameras stopped rolling, Evolution walked away as
the crowd booed out Triple H while he was holding the up the title belt
being helped by Flair and Orton. Kane stood on stage for a few minutes

> OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING CRASH HOLLY- WWE.COM released an official statement regarding the release of Crash
Holly from his contract. Crash hasn't been much on TV lately and
whenever he appeared he was always with fellow MFer Shannon Moore and
their leader Matt Hardy. The statement reads, "WWE and Michael Lockwood,
aka Crash Holly, have come to terms on his release so that he may pursue
other interests. We wish Lockwood all the best in his future endeavors."
> WWE PURCHASES ECW VIDEO COLLECTION- Dave Scherer of 1wrestling.com is reporting that WWE now owns all the
ECW video library which was in possession of American Cable Productions,
the former TV production team for the now defunct ECW. Just two weeks
ago the company purchased all ECW trademarks and other assets from
bankruptcy court after a lengthy battle which also saw video game giants
Acclaim Entertainment fighting for the deal. Scherer says that around
$250,000 will be paid to American Cable Productions and funds are now in
a trust account ready to be delivered after all the tapes are examined.
WWE now owns all NWA/WCW, ECW and their own tapes, clearly one of the
most important assets in the company.
> STOCKS- Stocks closed the day at 10.42, a 1.26% increase over the previous
closing. The day's range was 10.19 - 10.50.
