Now some good news, we sign a TV deal with National Pride TV for 7 shows and secure the services of Jeffrey Story as commentator, I will provide color commentary. They will broadcast both ECW 9 and ECW 10, so I change marketing to advanced local.
To replenish the HW ranks I sign Gamma castoffs Zair Williams and Abe Locke, both super Heavies who will have to trim down.
Moe Muschin injures his elbow forcing cancellation of his fight against Joey Valdez. It was a prelim fight so no big deal.
ECW 9 now has major issues as Ashley Ballard suffers a major knee injury and his fight with Reed Howlett is off. We make Lemonade out of Lemons and match Howlett up with Joey Valdez after the latter had his fight with Muschin cancelled, so we still have 5 main card fights.
Our financial numbers through March (we also made a profit of $9,306 in February) and the revised card for ECW 9.
