-- From Eric Gargiulo's website: The news is true and I regret to inform CZW fans that January's CZW broadcast was my last. Originally I was not even going to comment as I did not want to make a big deal out of it. I have decided to move on and I want to thank all of the fans, the wrestlers, and the entire crew for making the last 7 plus years some of the best. I may have had my ups and downs with some fans, but the emails and messages I have received over the last several hours have truly touched me. We (the fans and I) may not have always seen eye to eye on everything but anything I ever said or did was always with the best intentions for CZW. I wish CZW and the boys nothing but the best for the future.
