They better do it soon, because when this generation of performers is gone, who will replace them?"

    Summerslam 2006 was also the beginning of the most over heel of the last five years in WWE.

    Ah right. Horrible booking involving her in the match. While it took time for her to get used to being a heel, she became an incredible on-air talent. As far as overness goes, poor Chavo at his peak can't even compare to Aunt Vickie.

    Good call Jim, I completely forgot Batista didn't get the gold. Which I don't know how since Booker went into Cyber Sunday with the belt, which is easy to remember.

    Oh well.

    2004 - Staten Island, New York's Sportsfest, which held numerous Extreme Championship Wrestling events in the late 1990s has shut down and was taken down by wrecking ball. The Sportsfest property, which housed batting cages, indoor golf, video games, and a bowling alley under a huge bubble, was sold and will be turned into housing units, according to an article last week in The Staten Island Advance. The Sportsfest bubble, which had been a local landmark in the area, is already torn down. Extreme Championship Wrestling debuted in the venue in August 1996, headlined by Sabu pinning Rob Van Dam. The promotion ran regular house shows in the venue, including an infamous one which saw police and three ambulances called after a riot involving the Dudley Boyz. After ECW closed up shop, a number of independent promotions including USA Pro Wrestling, Primetime Wrestling and Impact Championship Wrestling ran the venue as well. The Sportfest was also home for the birth of what later became known as the "Strictly ECW" movement as NYC fan Anthony Lewis began collecting signatures at the August 1996 debut ECW event to protest ECW losing its timeslot on the Madison Square Garden network. Lewis' efforts started a near-political career which led to the Strictly ECW group spearheading campaigns to help the company burst onto PPV the following year and get onto cable provider Cablevision when it was the lone holdout of ECW PPVs. There were a number of people within the promotion, including owner Paul Heyman, who publicly cited Lewis as helping the company's growth as well as saving ECW's first PPV "Barely Legal."

    2004 - Christopher Daniels won the 3PW championship in the main event of a card promoted at the ECW Arena.

    Re: This Day in Wrestling History

    IIRC, Rodimer was seen on TV in a couple of backstage segments. It's a strange situation, all of the dirt sheets were claiming he was expected to receive a huge push as the third member of Rated RKO, but nothing happened. I did manage to see him wrestle at a house show I went to before WM 23.
