//->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-
So who's excited for the ECW TV show tonight? I am. But I do have my doubts.
Mixing WWE fans who go to watch Smackdown! and have them there for the ECW
show which is live can turn out to be brutal. WWE fans are different than
ECW and you can rest assured that there won't be the same fan reception
tonight like there was on Sunday. I wouldn't be surprised if WWE fans $hit
on the ECW TV show and boo everyone out of the building, just like ECW fans
would do if WWE ran in one of 'their' arenas. I hope for the best....I guess
we'll see tonight.
Order the 3-disc WrestleMania 22 on DVD. Available now!

championship tonight as Rob Van Dam claimed the title at One Night Stand
this past Sunday. Edge has also accepted the invitation to appear on the

done with the Smackdown! tapings at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, NJ.

> DX BACK TO OLD ANTICS AT VENGEANCE PRESS CONFERENCE- Shawn Michaels and Triple H raised some hell during today's press
conference earlier on at the Charlotte Bobcats Arena which was also
broadcast live on WWE.COM. Both former WWE champs where sporting the DX
shirt and while Shawn Michaels was telling the crowd that this DX will be
different and not doing the juvenile stuff that they did 10 years ago,
Triple H did the complete opposite of what HBK was saying to the host Todd
Grisham, giving him a wedgie and putting his finger in Grisham's ear. Triple
H also mooned the crowd twice. "We're not going to do them because we have
nothing to lose. Now, we're going to do them because we're rich, biatch!"
said Triple H.

> WWE TO PAY 24 CENTS PER SHARE DIVIDENDS- A quarterly dividend of 24 cents per share has been declared by WWE today
and will be payable July 10th to shareholders on record June 30th. In simple
English that means for every share there is available, WWE will pay you 24
cents depending on how many you own. If you are Vince McMahon you're in for
a big payout. Hurray!
