Seemed like Heyman was hellbent on getting these 3 back (Shane and Sabu were two of his biggest stars I guess) on his show ASAP.
Why didn't Heyman try to snatch up talented underused disgruntled guys like Bigelow, Pierre or Al Snow immediately during this time? Were Heavenly Bodies, Jason Knight and Dances With Dudley the future of ECW?
He basically just pushed Sandman, Public Enemy, Raven, Cactus Jack and Mikey even harder. That's why ECW was able to survive for so long, by making their own stars and not relying on disgruntled WWF guys.
