  2. REDSKINS ANNOUNCE 2019 SCHEDULE Redskins to be featured in Monday and Thursday night prime-time match ups LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced its 2019 regular season schedule tonight, and the highlights of the Washington Redskins’ 2019 regular season will be the team’s appearance in two prime-time games. The Redskins have now appeared in at least two prime-time games since the 2014 season. The Redskins will open the season on the road for a consecutive year when the team begins NFC East play at the Philadelphia Eagles at 1 p.m. on Sept. 8 on FOX. The Redskins will then return home to FedExField for back-to-back games, first against their divisional rivals the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 15 on FOX. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. Washington will then make its prime-time debut hosting the Chicago Bears on ESPN’s Monday Night Football to close out a two-game home stand on Sept. 23 at 8:15 p.m. The Redskins will play four consecutive 1 p.m. games in Weeks 4-7, starting on the road with its third division game in four weeks against the New York Giants on Sept. 29 on FOX. Washington will then host the defending Super Bowl Champions, the New England Patriots on Oct. 6 on CBS. The Redskins will travel to face the Miami Dolphins for an Oct. 13 match-up before returning to FedExField to host the 49ers on Oct 20. Both games will air on FOX. In Week 8, the Redskins will open a two-game road slate at the Minnesota Vikings for Thursday Night Football on Oct. 24 at 8:20 p.m. The game will air on FOX, NFL Network and stream live on Amazon. The Redskins will close the road swing at the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. on FOX. After a Week 10 bye – Washington’s latest since a Week 10 bye in 2014 – the Redskins will then host their second two-game home stand of the season in Weeks 11-12, first hosting the New York Jets on Nov. 17 on CBS prior to welcoming the Detroit Lions on Nov. 24 on FOX. Both contests are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. The Redskins will play five consecutive 1 p.m. games in Weeks 13-17, beginning with consecutive road games at the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 1 on CBS before traveling to the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 8.

For Redskins season, group or individual game ticket information, visitwww.Redskins.com/tickets or call (301) 276-6800. For the best options and safest way to secure tickets, Redskins fans should purchase from official sources including Redskins.com, the Redskins box office or Ticketmaster, the official ticketing partner of the NFL and the Washington Redskins. A select number of games across the league, including the Redskins’ Week 13 contest at Panthers, will be “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences. Some of those contests were announced today while the remainder of “cross-flexed” games will be decided during the season. “Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 5-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Footballon NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to Dec. 30. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into prime time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.

  10. http://www.wwe.com/shows/ecw/ecwlaunch WWE® Launches ECW® As Third Brand STAMFORD, Conn., May 25, 2006 - World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., today announced the official launch of ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling®) as a brand extension to its RAW® and SmackDown® franchises. After acquiring the ECW assets in 2003, WWE spent the past few years re-introducing ECW to the global WWE audience and increasing the interest in its unique brand of sports entertainment. To date, WWE has successfully released three ECW DVD’s, all of which have become best sellers, and produced a very profitable ECW pay-per-view event in June 2005, with another ECW pay-per-view scheduled for this June 11, 2006. With consumer interest at an all-time high, WWE is introducing ECW as a complementary brand to RAW and SmackDown. “After keeping the ECW concept alive and creating an enormous cult-like following for all things ECW from DVD’s to PPV’s to books, we feel that now the time is right to officially launch ECW as its own stand-alone franchise,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman. “RAW, SmackDown and ECW now represent a portfolio of WWE brands for fans of all ages and interests to enjoy.” Similar to WWE’s RAW and SmackDown brands, WWE will produce, market and promote a full line of ECW products from television programs to pay-per-views to live events to licensed consumer goods. In a related announcement, The SCI FI Channel today announced it would start airing one-hour episodes of a new ECW live television program, debuting June 13 at 10 p.m. ET. (more on this announcement) World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWE) is an integrated media and entertainment company headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto and London. Additional information on the company can be found at wwe.com and corporate.wwe.com. http://www.wwe.com/shows/ecw/scifi WWE® BRINGS ECW® TO SCI FI CHANNEL New York, N.Y., May 25, 2006 - SCI FI Channel today announced that World Wrestling Entertainment®, the producer of the No. 1 weekly basic cable TV series, “Monday Night RAW “on USA Network, will debut a summer series on Tuesday, June 13, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling®) will be an alternative brand of wrestling suited to fit the SCI FI Channel’s commitment to fuel the imagination. "Research tells us that there's a healthy appetite for wrestling among SCI FI viewers," said Bonnie Hammer, President, USA and SCI FI Channel. "With ECW, we're able to deliver to those fans unique action with a twist that's perfect for SCI FI." “ECW on SCI FI will push the boundaries of sports entertainment in new and unexpected ways,” said Vince McMahon, Chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment. SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on. SCI FI fuels the imagination of viewers with original series and events, blockbuster movies and classic science fiction and fantasy programming, as well as a dynamic Web site (www.scifi.com) and magazine. Launched in 1992, and currently in 85 million homes, SCI FI Channel is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWE) is an integrated media and entertainment company headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto and London. Additional information on the company can be found at wwe.com and corporate.wwe.com. http://www.wwe.com/shows/ecw/news/ecwglobal ECW Going Global May 26, 2006 WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has big plans for ECW. In fact, in a Friday afternoon interview with WWE.com, McMahon revealed, “We are taking the ECW brand global.” Going worldwide with the likes of Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer and Sabu, however, is miles away from where ECW was prior to its closing in 2001. In fact, stationed out of Philadelphia, many looked at ECW as just a northeastern wrestling promotion. But the recently re-launched ECW will not have much of a struggle making an impact both here in the United States and overseas. In fact, according to Mr. McMahon, ECW already has plans for its own Merchandising and Licensing, International Sales, consistent Live Event schedule, as well as its own set of pay-per-views. But with so much of WWE’s global enterprise behind it, can ECW be expected to be the same ECW it was when it developed its cult-like following in the late 1990s and early 2000s? “We will bring forward many of the more legendary characters of ECW’s past,” said McMahon regarding today’s ECW. “But it can’t be the same. That’s pretty much impossible. It’s now five years later. A lot of the performers now have five more years under their belt, and the ECW style has taken a great deal out of them. This is something that the ECW audience already realizes. They know that if ECW was still in business today, they would be very different from what they were five years ago.” While the re-launched ECW will undoubtedly be different from the original ECW, McMahon is adamant that the brand will not stop pushing the envelope, nor will it be like the already successful WWE brands SmackDown and RAW. “It will be an alternative, there’s no doubt about that,” claimed the WWE Chairman. “It won’t be shot the same way we shoot SmackDown or RAW. It’ll have a different feel. It will be more gritty. There will also be more imagination put into concepts and characters. But at the same time, there will need to be a delicate balance because there are three masters to serve. There’s the small, vocal ECW audience. Then there’s the SCI FI audience that is accustomed to things more SCI FI. And obviously, you have to also be true to our broader audience in terms of what sports-entertainment is today.” With so much of the vision of the new ECW brand already mapped out, many wonder what took WWE so long to re-launch the brand. According to McMahon, it was all about timing. “Over the last several years, we have been busy re-establishing the concept of ECW without it having to be its own brand,” said McMahon. “Now, with the success of The Rise and Fall of ECW DVD and the success of last year’s One Night Stand pay-per-view, it just seemed right. And it feels like this year’s One Night Stand pay-per-view will be a launch to re-establish the brand.” So with the launch of the re-established brand right around the corner, will former ECW head Paul Heyman have a role? “Absolutely,” exclaimed McMahon. “But at the end of the day, Mr. McMahon is in charge.”

  22. That's because it was 7 days long. But seriously, the main event didn't even start until after midnight. ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard only clocked in at 4 & half hours the night before. NJPW surprised me by having both their IC & Heavyweight titles changing hands again so some after WrestleKingdom. Have you checked out MLW or Booker T's ROW? Both shows are available free on the FITE app & have really good production. Harlem Heat recently reunited on ROW. A few weeks back on MLW, Konan vs LO Ki did a no holds barred match where Konan took a spike to the eye. MLW has a pretty good roster. Cornette on color. Pillman's kid is part of the Heart Foundation with one of the Harts & Davey Boy's kid.
