The WWE will have its third brand – ECW on the Sci Fi channel through 2008. The company made the announcement today that ECW will stay on the channel through the year. This has to be a welcome sign for the company for those that wrestle in ECW, as there was much speculation that they would not renew the show past 2007. Last week the WWE announced that ECW would be streamed on their website, making many think that they were doing that just in case Sci Fi would no longer carry the show past this year. Below is a copy of the press release that the WWE sent out about the renewing of the show on Sci Fi.
