In an interview with Brian Fritz of, Shane Douglas comments on TNA’s “connection” with ECW and the Hardcore Justice PPV this Sunday.

“I mean, what connection does TNA, do the Carters, do any of the talent in TNA — no disrespect to any of them, they’re all great talent — but what do any of them have to do with ECW? The answer is nothing. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Zippo. There’s no connection whatsoever, so this is either a grab — a desperate grab — for a rating on a pay-per-view buyrate for a company that does traditional six-to-eight thousand buys, paltry by any measurement, even by the old ECW measurement.”
