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

All real
6 November 1999 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

This kind of wrestling is all real. I'm not insulting WCW or WWF, but everything in this federation is all hardcore. I mean they use tables, stapleguns, and even fire. If you are the kind of person, who likes T&A and a whole lot of cursing watch this kind of federation.
