Why yes, yes I did see Ezekiel Jackson get thrown a bone and become the final ECW Champion, as well as having the shortest reign (just a hair short of three minutes). The questionw as, WHY? Wrestling Inc. reports that Vince wanted Zeke to have some momentum going into a Smackdown run, but the thing is - the ECW title hasn't meant shit for a few years now. WWE hardly gave a shit about the title, so what makes you think that a random fan will get psyched because some mumblemouth nigga held the belt for 3 minutes? Fuck outta here!

RIP ECW. Check out The Bleacher Report's, um, report.

EDIT Now, in terms of the title, one would love to believe that the belt won't go away, that it'd be siphoned for another purpose (other championships in the past have been reimagined, ala the "World Heavyweight Championship" previously being WCW's World Title), and with four weekly shows, I'd LOVE to see a "WWE TV Champion", but that won't happen... will it?

And you gotta love that Vince stuck it to ECW one more time - having the brand end like that, like he did with the WCW years back, is the ultimate burial of his enemies.
