ECW Barely Legal (1997) Poster

(1997 TV Special)

Alternate Versions

Due to a licensing issue, 14 minutes of footage containing music being played was cut from the American video release. This resulted in much of the entrances being removed and several promos by The Sandman, Stevie Richards and Terry Funk as well.
The event was released on home video in 2000 by Pioneer Entertainment as part of its "The Best of ECW" line of DVDs. The Pioneer release trimmed out many of the ring entrances, removed the music on the entrances not edited out (with the exception of songs ECW owned the rights to, including changing "Enter Sandman" from the Metallica version to Motörhead's cover), and edited out the backstage promos and part of Shane Douglas's promo in the ring. The event was later re-released on July 11, 2006 by World Wrestling Entertainment as part of a two-disc set with One Night Stand 2006. The WWE release censored offensive language and changed the majority of the entrance music to music produced by WWE to avoid licensing fees.
The British Board of Film Classification ordered 36 seconds cut of Raven putting the boots to a bloody Terry Funk for the UK video release.
