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...

The wrestling company that could
11 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

E-C-Dub E-C-Dub E-C-Dub still fills my head everyday when i think of wrestling and rebelling. When there needed to be a change in wrestling it didn't come easy it came because of cw forcing it down the throats of sports entertainment ecw brought hardcore wrestling to the USA but most importantly ecw brought WRESTLING back to a major audience it changed the face of the wrestling industry not by doing what was popular but by rebelling against what sports entertainment said they needed to do but by sticking the ecw middle finger up and saying the industry needs to change and were going to do it our way now just watch us. ECW will never die as long as Paul E heyman the man who was responsible for ecw has anything to do with it and not Vincent Kennedy McMahon. THANK YOU PAUL THANK YOU PAUL THANK YOU PAUL
