Quote If you go on WWE.com and read the article regarding the WWE Draft Lottery you will see that during the statement(s) of The Boogeyman moving to ECW, they tend to take a slight shot at ECW. Here is the statement: The Bottomless Pit dweller makes the move to ECW after seeing his diminutive friend, Little Boogey, splashed by the World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry on Friday Night SmackDown. Understandably, he’s in a bit of a foul mood. Looking at his new home, the Boogeyman seems at first to be a perfect match with the master of Original Sin, Kevin Thorn, who has an occult aura around him. But it could be that creatures of the night such as Thorn and Boogeyman tend to work alone. Also, the Boogeyman’s unorthodox style could present a challenge to ECW Superstars that are used to a more traditional, conventional style of ring warfare. "But then again, ECW has been anything but conventional in its history, and in that sense, the worm-eating enigma will be right at home."
 
Now I wouldn't take it as a shot at all personally. I mean can the truth be a dig? They are right in saying ECW hasn't been conventional in the past. Having the show on SCI FI as well is not going to help them get away from that stigma. Boogeyman and Thorn being on the show makes complete sense. When people send little lines like this into dirt sheets, I believe they wish to read more into something that's not there. The unconventional style is what made ECW what it was in the first place and by bringing it up in the article it's like paying homeage.

More then what was said, it the underlying fact that Boogeyman was sent to ECW, because his gimmick sucked and he couldn't get over. Unfortantly, ECW is more or less WWE's talent trash can. Every draft they get one good wrestler to be champion and two or three wrestler that can't get any reaction.

Thorn is okay, but Gangrel was better. Gangrel really sold the vampire image. Thorn seems more to me like a guy that rented a costume and showed up on a wrestling set.

*Further more, it doesn't matter how many great wrestlers you push guys like Umaga, Great Khali, Mark Henry, and Boogeyman, over. If the gimmick sucks and the fans regect them, they won't be over. Eventually the fans will get frustrated and stop watching. Umaga and Boogeyman are decent wrestlers with terrible gimmicks, I'd like to see them reinvent themselves. Mark Henry and Great Khali are terrible wrestlers with terrible gimmciks. Maybe Khali could get better with traing and come back as the next Big Show, but I'm pretty sure Mark Henry is a lost cause.

Boogeyman was somewhat over when he first came on the scene in 2005 on Smackdown...He even went over JBL at the Royal Rumble, of course noone remembers and JBL dusted himself off and got right back up to win the U.S. title...I said it then and Ill say it now, Boogeyman is a gimmick wrestler and thats it, he should of been scatter booker on Smackdown or whatever brand he was on and in squash matches as an 'attraction'...another words, he should never be taken seriously and should have his matches in the middle of the show hes on

To this day, I still don't understand why in the hell The Boogeyman is still having a job in WWE.

But anyway, readin' that statement, I don't see where they're taking a shot at ECW. Indeed, ECW was anything but conventional during their glory days.

Unless, WWE is taking a shot at ECW by sending their worst worker on the Smackdown brand on a brand that needs star power, not another man hailing from "Mr. Ripley's Believe It or Not".

I don't see how the Boogeyman will fit "right at home in ECW" cause of a few things: He can hardly wrestle, and he spits worms on people (I feel sorry for the bum who has to be this character). I just hope he isn't given a big push or anything and that he leaves the midget behind.
