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

you probably don't get to see it!
11 September 2000 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I live in Nashville and I got to see this show about 4 years ago on a crummy low budget station here then it was taken off and it never came back on, this is a different show from TNN's soon to be cancelled and hopefully moving to USA show. ECW Hardcore TV is only available to a small amount of people in the US but if you get it your lucky and watch it because ECW is probably the most intense and most athletic federation there is.
