There is a pretty big ECW fanbase on this board. I'm wondering if any of you have any PPV's or taped TNN shows that you turn to, as an alternative to WWE.

I know that I'm one person who does. Heatwave `98 is probably the best overall PPV I've ever seen. Even something like Guilty As Charged 2001 (which was a weak card on paper) sparkles like gold in comparison to WWE's product most months.

I'm not one who thinks Dreamer et al are being held down. I think they thank their lucky stars to have a reliable paycheque from Vince, no matter how they are used on TV (if at all).

But it's fun being able to pop in a PPV to remind me of the times when Justin Credible and Jerry Lynn were putting on matches together that far surpass anything I've seen in WWE this year. Same goes for RVD & Sabu vs. Shinzaki & Hayabusa (if you like spotfests) and Tajiri vs. Super Crazy vs. Guido.

Wal-Mart is actually a really good place to find ECW PPV's up in Canada. For a store that refuses to carry Sheryl Crow CD's, I'm shocked they carry "controversial" wrestling like this. Either way, I'm looking at purchasing Cyberslam `99 and/or Wrestlepalooza `97 tomorrow. The former looks like a great card (Tajiri vs. Lynn, in the match where Lynn debuts the Cradle Piledriver in North America) and Wrestlepalooza has the finale match in the war between Raven & Dreamer.

Has anyone seen or does anyone own either of these? I'd like to hear if they're as good as some of the other shows I mentioned.

It's pointless to mourn the loss of ECW, but at least it's still possible to go out and find ECW material if you want it.

I've got some of the PPV's and maybe a few shows of ECW on tape, but the majority I got through RF Video...
I have already put together some of the best of the "Best of RVD"-type videos on DVD, it turned out great...
I haven't bought any of the few ECW DVD's, as most of the matches I probably have on tape or the DVD I made.
I'm making more ECW DVD's as I can find time...

I love to pull out the compilation DVD's put out by ECW. Especially the one with the 4 way tv title match (2 Cold, Douglas, Pit Bull, Jericho) and the one with the Tajiri vs. Psicosis matchup. I understand why ECW died, but that doesn't mean I don't miss it. Even at the end I still had more fun watching them then I usually do with WWE.



Next Week, I plan on rushing for 200 yds. against the Bears:
Detroit 23, Chicago 20
Bears go to 2-4 (next vs. Minnesota Oct. 27)

Yes!!! Someone starts a topic on Pioneer's awesome ECW production! Ahem, excuse my nutty excitement!

Anyways, I just got both shows you mentioned a couple weeks ago for VHS. By the way, do you live in Ottawa as well??? Anyhoo...

- Wrestlepalooza 1997: Most of the matches are crap, but Raven-Dreamer is a wicked brawl which was a fitting end to their long feud. This show also has the famous quote by Jerry Lawler: "They outta wrap this bingo hall with toilet paper, because there's nothing in it but shit!" This also has the Taz-Sabu rematch from Barely Legal, as well as the Taz-Douglas match that segued right from it. Matches weren't great, but the booking was neat.

- Cyberslam 1999: The exact opposite, with a lot of fun matches: Lynn-Tajiri, Crazy-Mosca (the only Mosca match I've seen), Taka-Chulo (which was too short), Taz-Candido (which I liked before the goofy ending). RVD-Scorpio was pretty spotty, much like most of RVD's stuff around this time.

In conclusion, you might as well get both, for if you liked ECW in any sort of way, there's something you'll like, I'm sure. However, the MAIN reason to get these tapes (or DVDs) is because, you know EVENTUALLY Vince McMahon will wind up with the entire ECW collection in the palm of his hand.

BTW, here's the ECW stuff from Pioneer that I have:
- Path of Destruction
- Hardcore History
- Wrestlepalooza 97
- Heat Wave 98
- Cyberslam 99
- Anarchy Rulz 99
- Guilty As Charged 2001

How do you rank the order of the best ECW DVD's?

I want to get another one. I already have Extreme Evolution and it is my favorite. I'm thinking of Cyberslam 99. It must have a match with RVD. If you could only get 3 ECW DVDs which ones do you get?

I have the Best of the Dudley Boyz VHS tape, and it is really great. The stuff from the Elks Lodge is riveting.

On DVD, I have the ECW Deep Impact DVD. This is the one with Tajiri/Psicosis on it, plus other good and not so good matches. Of course, the best part about the DVD is the Steve Austin parody interviews from his rib on Hulk Hogan to an easter egg of Austin portraying Eric Bischoff. Oh, and the famous catfight between Beulah and Francine (and the gruesome Beulah/Bill Alphonso "match" where Bill discovers the perils of blading too deep).

I almost got the Deep Impact VHS one about a year ago, but HMV charged a ridiculous $32.99 Cdn for it. They also charged that amount for Juggalo Championshit Wrestling Vol 2. I mean, I know this stuff is hard to get in stores, but I don't want them that badly!

Yeah, I picked up Cyberslam '99 last weekend, and it was definitely worth it for the first few matches. I bought Barely Legal a while back, and was pretty disappointed on the whole-- and this is coming from a pretty big ECW mark. However, Barely Legal was completely redeemed by the presence of a SWANK Michinoku Pro 6-man tag. Absolutely beautiful (though the fans gave them hell for the one spot that got blown).

I'll definitely be getting more of them.

The best of Catus Jack in ECW. TONS of action, TONS of great promos. Mikey WHipwreck bumping all over, and the infamous DORITOS promo.

I think it's a case of WWE thinking about the look first and worrying about talent second. Chris Masters has the look, but, at this point, it's too early for him to have been brought up.
