Hey,

In no way am I trying to do a sympathy ECW post or anything, (I am of those that like to remember ECW was cool, and just let it go), but I just wanted to mention that earlier on, I was looking at Jerry Lawler's Website, KingLawler.com, and he has a clip of his debut in ECW attacking Tommy Dreamer alongside Sabu and RVD.

I just like watching this stuff, it was such a cool time and the fans were so into it. Although I am not a big fan of post 1992 wrestling, stuff like this in ECW was cool because they built up feuds and there was history I was watching the clip and I could feel the energy. All the more reason to just let it go and remember those good times. Man, how I miss 1997.

I always felt ECW was overrated...

I think that ECW was very much a niche promotion. WWF was where talent rose to glory. WCW was where talent went to die. ECW was where talent were discovered.

Regarding Lawler's first appearance in ECW, I was actually there in the ECW Arena. I have to say that it was the loudest pop I have ever heard in that arena, and that show is still one of my top two favorite live event experiences.

That is what ECW was good at. They got fans who were passionate about their product, and it permeated throughout the country. If you look at it now, you would probably say that the wrestling was pretty bad, and most of the storylines were just as poor as in any other federation. But if you were a fan and remembered going to ECW shows, you can only have good memories of the atmosphere at these shows.



In 11 days, you will see the return of the Undertaker, the Dead Man that most of us have been clamoring for for years.

Also in 11 days, you will see most of us complain about the return of the Dead Man, the Dead Man that most of us have been clamoring for for years.

Those are the exact memories I have when I think about ECW. They had some great storylines and some bad ones, but the fans always made those shows something to watch, they were so passionate that it was hard for you not to be as passionate as they were....it's kinda like when someone moves to Boston, they pretty much always become a Red Sox fan

I would never recommend to anyone who has gotten into wrestling in the last 6-7 years to ever go back and buy ECW tapes. Because, unless you were chronologically there, it means nothing. But on March 8th 1994 a 13 year old, who had watched wrestling for 7 years at that point, adjusted the coat hanger in his TV and saw wrestling in a way wrestling has never been seen before and was floored. Now, I'm far to cynical to enjoy a Bruise Brothers/Public Enemy falls count anywhere match today, but back then I could really identify with that. It was part of my coming to age I guess, which would explain why I sleep with my clothes on every night.

But, my story is probably similar to many others, in that, you had to be there.
