ECW is dead, enter WWE NXT (Also Tommy Dreamer is annoying)

Vince McMahon announced tonight on ECW that the show will be dead in 3 weeks, to replaced by some big new concept, believed to be a show called WWE NXT (Next generation...but edgier!), as they've registered a trademark for it.  No idea yet if the belt will be retired or renamed.  On Twitter, Tommy Dreamer noted that this was part of why he left WWE, which means he may in fact be the biggest mark in the wrestling business since the original promotion has been dead for 9 years.  I don't think he was pissed off when the Savoldis stopped using the ICW name, was he?
