    Kennedy hasn't been good in his last couple of matches like he should be, just saying. Umaga is improving, and Morrison is good.

    I agree Morrison is just simply good and he is quickly becoming one of my favorite wrestlers.


    Same here. Morrison is good and is going higher on my favorite wrestler list.


    Though I don't like his gimmick. He better as Nitro.

    Don't mention it. I can do with him being the ECW champion, but that name. John Morrison? Who came up with that name in the first place?

    Yep, Jim Morrison of The Doors.
    No clue why they had Hennigan do that gimmick but I agree, he was better as Nitro.

    I think they did it to establish him more as a main eventing heel, I like the move.

    It's not a bad move. I didn't like Nitro on ECW. I like him on RAW better.

    Nitro didn't really need a gimmick change as his talent level spoke volumes. I believe the change was to further seperate him from Melina.

    pwinsider.com:

    The Palm Beach Post in Florida featured a long interview today with John Todd Miller, who is set to begin a 18 month prison term after being nabbed on providing steroids to a 13-year old professional in-line skater.

    Miller, who owned the Pasco Medical Clinic in Tampa, was heavily investigated for his links to professional wrestlers, including Eddie Guerrero and Ric Flair, and allegedly providing them enhancement substances. Miller noted that he was close friends with a number of top names, commenting, "Having a clinic that had steroids, you kind of get to meet a bunch of them."

    Miller, who opened his clinic in 2001, was introduced to the late Guerrero by a doctor around the same time period. The friendship with Guerrero opened the doors for other performers to utilize the Clinic, including Ric Flair, Paul Wight, Hector Guerrero, Dan Spivey, Billy Kidman and Joe Malenko.

    Miller claimed in the article that he had dinner at Flair's home numerous times and commented, "When you take a guy that's that old and you make him look good, guys are going to notice that and want to know how you did it."

    The wrestlers cut off their relations with Miller after his Clinic was raided in a federal investigation in 2003. When some of the personalities were interviewed by investigators, they found out they weren't the only ones pulling a work in their chosen profession - Miller wasn't a doctor.

    When Eddie Guerrero was interviewed under oath by detectives, he "assumed Miller was a doctor even though he never represented himself as one" according to the article. Hector Guerrero also commented he thought Miller was a doctor. Guerrero's brother Hector, a former pro wrestler, also said he thought Miller was a doctor. The article noted that the raid on the clinic stunned other local business owners who also believed Miller was a doctor.

    "I was just surprised," former WWF and NWA wrestler Dan Spivey commented in the article, "I didn't think anything illegal was going on."

    Miller responded, "I'm not a doctor. I just owned the clinic. Yes, I was trained by a physician to give injections and I did give injections when he wasn't present, but I didn't do anything that he didn't order. It was pushing the envelope but I always figured if something happened, it would be the doctor, not me. He was the one ordering everything that I was doing. You go to work, you follow directions. But I did own the office, so ... "

    14 felony counts were dropped against Miller in the initial investigation against him, including running an unlicensed medical practice and possession and delivery of a controlled substance. Miller claimed in the article that the charges were dropped because the authorities' search warrants weren't secured before the raid. The Hillsborough Sheriff's office would not comment.

    Miller was eventually caught by authorities after being nabbed for providing steroids for an underage professional in-line skater. Miller then turned informant on the person responsible for getting the steroids for the skater, the skater's own father. Miller, who admitted being bitter over heading to federal prison, said he is cooperating with other investigations.

    WWE did not respond to the article when asked for comment.

    Conference call recap:

    -There have been no Wellnes Policy violations since the last round of suspensions. Linda noted that tests are not done every day, and that it takes time to get tests results back. She praised the Wellness Policy, and said they would be announcing the names of the 10+ suspended superstars in the near future. Linda stressed that they created the Wellness Policy to help take care of their performers, and noted the other aspects of it beyond drug testing, like the cardio tests and regular physical exams.

    And

    pwinsider.com

    In an interview with The Orlando Sentinel today, Vince McMahon was asked about drug use in WWE. He said, "I think there has been a rush to judgment on the issue of steroid and drug abuse in WWE. When that happens, it is difficult to get your side of the story told. WWE has had various drug-testing programs for its performers over the past 20 years. The Talent Wellness Program we have today is effective. This has random testing protocols that result in more frequent testing than other drug-testing programs, such as those in professional sports. Random testing is designed to be at 400 percent, meaning that all performers are to be tested at least four times per year. The WWE program imposes serious penalties, up to and including contract termination for repeat offenders." He was also asked if he is considering retiring. He said, "No . . . It is definitely my passion for the business that gets me up in the morning. As long as I believe I can contribute to provide the fans a product that they want to see and enjoy, I'll continue to be involved in WWE one way or another. I love what I do. It's not work."

    You do realize that The ECW Title is just another mid-card title in disguise, right?
