i never saw the original ECW, but i've heard it was the sickest thing on the planet. People were sacrificing their bodies just so the audience would get their fix of blood, gore, and violence. now it's the same thing as WWE. only shorter.
In ECW, Legends like tommy dreamer, Sabu, the Sandman, Balls mahoney, RVD, Terry funk, and other guys fight in a ring, sometimes with weapons in a no-disqualification match. New guys include the ECW champion the Big show, The creepy Kevin thorn with his girlfriend Ariel, Rene dupree, CM punk, Matt stryker, and Kurt angle. even the undertaker has had a match against big show for his ECW world title.
ECW is not what it used to be. from all the old footage i've seen (the barbed wire match between sabu and terry funk) it's not extreme anymore. I saw the pay-per-view one night stand and loved it. "if that's what ECW is, then i'm tuning in for it." i said. i only got to see the first 3 matches (Jerry lawler VS tazz, Sabu VS Rey mysterio, and the 3 person tag team with edge, Foley, Lita, terry funk, tommy dreamer and that other woman. I can't remember her name) But that was all i needed to see to figure ECW was awesome.
All i got was an hour long show of pussy fighting and next to no divas.
People, WWE is more extreme than this. Watch that instead.
