Had this been the Old ECW, as in Hardcore wrestling, not this WWE-ECW then Dreamer, Mahoney and Sandman would have been much better because their niche is Hardcore however the WWE refuse to have hardcore wrestling on a regular basis after Mick Foley almost killed himself a few times in the 90s.
Mahoney is actually more over than almost anyone on the ECW roster simply because everyone shouts Balls whenever he does anything.
As for RVD his problems come from him being discontented with the WWE. The WWE has never found the right storyline for RVD, they have never allowed him to speak properly on screen and RVD himself has never fitted in. His problems with the WWE powers that be increased when he refused to go to Iraq to perform for the troops and refused to thank McMahon for the opportunity to go, having never been a suck up in his life. His contract is up this year and he will most likely be jobbed out until he leave for TNA.
Sabu has never been i the WWE good book really and he made the problems harder for himself when he and RVD were arrested for carrying drugs. Since then he has had what the WWE say is a lousey attitude and has been jobbed out to almost everyone, despite the fact that he is one of the better wrestlers on the brand.
As for the "new breed" Matt Striker has the potential to be a very good midcard heel. Bruke is sort of like Mr. Kennedy he has pontential and ability on the mike but whether he furfils that will be up to both him and the WWE. Marcus Cor Von is Monty Brown the WWE will push him just to stick it in TNA's face that a wrestler they let go went on to bigger and better things, just like they used to do with WCW wrestler who jumped ship. CM Punk has a far bigger fan base than any of the wrestler mention so far, except RVD, but again the WWE think his attitude is lousey.
Lashley is over-rated and very boring. He is an average wrestler who the WWE push because he is their favorite generic muscle man who they love as champion of the individual brands ((Cena on Raw, Batista on Smackdown and Loshley on ECW)). He will never be a heel because he a very little charisma when it comes to speaking but he will probably be ECW champion for a long time.
