News on WWE's ECW Deal With Sci-Fi

On 10/23, the Sci-Fi Network agreed to renew ECW to a new one-year contract through the end of 2008. Sources are saying that the money terms were the same as the last deal. WWE was hoping for a multi-year renewal, but Sci-Fi officials wouldn't go that far. WWE was worried that no deal would be made, and began putting full episodes of ECW on the website two weeks ago as preparation for not getting a new deal with the brand.
