Shane Douglas On Joey Styles’ Professionalism In The Original ECW



Shane Douglas has praised the professionalism of fellow ECW alumni Joey Styles during their tenure in the extreme promotion.

Speaking on a recent edition of his “Franchise University” podcast, Douglas commented on Styles, who often called ECW pay-per-view events on his own. He said,

“This, by no means, is to smear or besmirch anybody else in the industry – Jim Ross, Lance Russell, and Gordon Solie were all phenomenal, but watching Joey … how professional he approached this job [even] in the dressing room walking around.

“I remember him talking with Taz about the Kata Ha Jime [Tazmission] and in his commentary on Barely Legal, you’ll hear him just throwing these words that I’d never heard before. He’d done his homework, like a straight-A student in class.

“He brought with him a corporate attitude — he had worked for big companies in New York City. He brought that with him, and Joey’s delivery was so informative, but at the same time, so disarming. It wasn’t like, ‘I’m a bean head who’s gonna hit you in the head with all these big words.'”

Following the demise of ECW, Styles joined WWE in 2005 and would remain in roles on and off-screen until his departure in 2016.
