Yesterday, there were reports that Tommy Dreamer was backstage at an NXT event. That led many to believe that he was simply visiting friends backstage. However, he did a lot more than that. The ECW legend was brought out by Joey Styles to work a match against Baron Corbin. The reason why WWE opted to do that was because the event was being held in Philadelphia. They felt that it would be a nice treat for their fans there.

If Tommy Dreamer wanted an upgrade for announcer, then he might take a look at Justin Roberts. He still has passion for professional wrestling. Roberts only left WWE because he had grown disenchanted with some of the things that the front office was doing behind the scenes. Otherwise, he would have remained in the industry. House of Hardcore could benefit by bringing in another familiar voice and face for television.

The upcoming House of Hardcore VIII card was already stacked with well known wrestlers, but that was not enough for Tommy Dreamer. He signed another former WWE star for the show. Carlito has been added to the card, and he will be facing TNA star Matt Hardy and New Japan star Lance Hoyt in a triple threat match. Dreamer is reportedly not done with the final card for the event, so you can expect him to keep working the phones vigorously.

If you are one of the people who have been waiting for a Tommy Dreamer return, you are in luck. The ECW legend is making a quick comeback to work a hardcore match against Eric Young on an upcoming episode of Impact Wrestling. The segment was said to be quite bloody and brutal, as management wanted to build up Young as a serious heel. It is being said that WWE opted not to use Dreamer at the Royal Rumble because he works for TNA.

It appears that Tommy Dreamer was originally a big part of the plan for the upcoming Royal Rumble. While that does sound hard to believe, the idea that WWE had was to expand the main event match to include 40 performers instead of the usual 30. The additional contestants would have been made up of former ECW stars, as the pay per view is being held in Philadelphia. The fans in the area still have an affinity for the hardcore wrestlers that entertained them over a decade ago.
