Paul Heyman has earned his reputation as an innovator, and his latest idea is unprecedented.

In a tweet, Heyman nominated the ECW for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2022.

Hailed as the mastermind of ECW, Heyman knows firsthand how distinctly electric the promotion’s crowds were during its heyday. Even during the height of its revival in WWE, ECW fans stood out for their vibrant chants and their unmatched enthusiam.

“If there was ever a worthy #HallOfFame induction…INDUCT or WE RIOT,” wrote Heyman.

Let's start talking about NEXT YEAR's @WWE #HOF, shall we?

Matt Hardy: ‘AEW Is Here To Stay’

AEW Dynamite reached a new high when its special “Blood & Guts” episode was named the #1 program on cable on Wednesday night. Still, the company remains the target of critcism from some fans. In a tweet responding to one negative comment, AEW star Matt Hardy defended the company’s success.

“People love @AEW, dumbass,” wrote Hardy.

He also noted the show’s #1 ranking this week before he sent a message about the company’s prospects.

“AEW is here to stay,” wrote Hardy.” He then cracked a joke in response to the fan’s criticism of his first few months, which utilized teleportation and drones.

“Let a friend know bia telegram/rotary phone & spread the word,” wrote Hardy.

People love @AEW, dumbass. #AEWDynamite WAS THE #1 TV SHOW ON CABLE THIS WEEK!

I know you CAnon bootlickers have to follow archaic beliefs & spew these things, which happened over a year ago.

AEW is here to stay. Let a friend know via telegram/rotary phone & spread the word!
