— The WWE 2K14 video game will be the first game where you can select outdoor football stadiums as the arena you hold your matches in.

Reader Phil Johnson sent along the following:

— Former ECW personality Lou D’Angeli (aka Sign Guy Dudley and Lou E. Dangerously) recently took some time to take part in a Q&A. D’Angeli spoke on a number of topics from if he is a Paul Heyman guy to his thoughts on John Cena, the Attitude Era, ECW, WWE, TNA and more. Here are some highlights:

Are you a Paul Heyman guy?: 100%…I am also a Tommy Dreamer guy….a Raven guy….and a Taz guy….with the 4 of them I would have never caught break in the wrestling business.

What are your thoughts about John Cena?: John is a great guy. Having worked with him in WWE I know first-hand what he does for that company and the dedication and drive he has to get it done. His contributions to Make-A-Wish are second to none. I can honestly say Cena is the perfect role-model in the business right now.

When you think back, how much of WWE’s Attitude Era is owed to what you guys were already doing in ECW?: A lot of it…and due to the popularity of shoot interviews, etc…it’s a fact and not a theory you know? People saw what we were doing and brought it to national TV before we could. The “Attitude Era” for WWE was insanely popular obviously…and given they still continue to bring some of the main-event guys from that time back into the fold now…they must feel the same way.

    ECW was AWESOME!

    Pro wrestling the way it was meant to be.

    Half naked girls, staple guns, barbed wire, blading, explosions.

    Pro wrestling for adults.

    Compare ECW to what WWE is now – LOL

    Worst part about it is look how Vince changed WWF and made it adult to compete with them – then when ECW was gone and there was no more competition when wCw was gone and WWF/E was the only game in town, Uncle Vince sold out and changed the company to PG kiddie – FACT!

    God bless ECW.

      vince gave money to ecw cuz guys would go back and forth from there and wwf. WCW took out ecw in 2001 and they tried it back in late 99 early 2000 when they stole mike awesome and was gonna have him throw the ecw title in the trash just like they did the wwf womens title but paul heyman had legal contracts saying where they couldnt do that and wwe even let taz(under wwf contract) win the title from awesome then eventually lose it. i agree with you wwe took alot of ideas from ecw but they respected that company and helped them out till the very end when tnn canceled it. but he didnt make it adult to compete with them they were only on tv for moment. he brought in ecw and made it attitude era to compete with wcw cuz they were trying to take them out like they did ecw. in the end ECW and WWF WON.and yea i know the ecw talent is gone all but a couple but they were better off cuz heyman didnt pay most of them and owed them alot and they were performing for free.
