Storyline

In the early 90's, Eastern Championship Wrestling, an independant wrestling federation run by Paul Heyman, seperated itself from the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) and declared itself Extreme Championship Wrestling, debuting on television as "ECW Hardcore TV." The weekly show featured excessively long and violent wrestling matches, and made stars out of such wrestlers as Taz, Rob Van Dam, Sabu, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Francine, Justin Credible, The Dudley Boyz, The Sandman, Balls Mahoney and Rhino. Financial issues caused the federation and the TV show to go under in 2001. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Steve Austin: You know, a couple of weeks ago, when Eric Bischoff told his secretary to tell her secretary to leave a message on my answering machine, for me to call Eric Bischoff, and then I called Eric Bischoff, and he proceeded to fire me over the phone, I thought a big cloud was lifted off the career of Steve Austin. Because gone were the days where I'd go up to someone and say "Hey, what about me and Sting? We got this big thing going. How 'bout the cage?" And someone says "No, baby, that's for somebody...

LOL certainly not! This isn't your daddy's wrestling as Paul Heyman likes to say. Paul Heyman had a vision in 1993 to start a promotion more hardcore, more violent, more aggressive then the big two, WWF & WCW. ECW Extreme Championship Wrestling. Slowly he worked his way up to a weekly show in a big network, pay per views, action figures, and video games. The stars of ECW: Tommy Dreamer, New Jack, Spike Dudley, Rhino, Justin Credible, Kid Kash, Yoshiro Tajiri, and especially the most athletic wrestler of all time Rob Van Damm along with others make up the current ECW roster, but other wrestlers such as, Jericho, Benoit, Foley, Funk, Sid, Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, and even Stone Cold have wrestled in ECW. ECW lives up to it's name Extreme! Using tables, chairs, spilling bloods, cussing, using guitars, cheese graders, diving off balconies, it doesn't get anymore extreme than ECW!
