WWE and ECW Announce "Extreme Strip Poker"

Every time this blog runs something a bit unusual, the hits go way-y-y up. With that in mind, we're happy to note that that bastion of sports-tertainment, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), has announced that a dilettante's worth of wrestling divas will participate in "Extreme Strip Poker," which will run as part of the Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) brand. The episode will first air on October 10th, on the Sci-Fi Network --- and I had no idea that Sci-Fi Network was doing all-star wrestling these days, which ranks right up with BET running rap videos all day and calling itself an "educational" channel --- and the show will highlight divas from several of the major WWE shows. Divas from RAW and Smackdowns will join the ECW Vixens in this one.

There's just not a whole lot more that needs to be said. ECW wryly asks, "Which Diva or Vixen will bring her poker face to ECW in less than three weeks?"

Uhh, I don't think the guys watching will be paying too much attention to the poker faces. Call it a hunch.

ECW on Sci-Fi has been on the air I think like 4 months. There's plenty of cable networks that have strayed from what they used to be. Those that come to mind:

A&E
Bravo
AMC
MTV
MTV2

'Tis true, enough, Kevin. I think TRIO was the ultimate example --- after a bit, people just gave up trying to figure out their programming theme.
