Me too! The first time I turned on ECW was late one night on Sunshine Network. I had just got DirecTV. The wife was already asleep as I was flipping channels and say Chris Candido wrestling. I thought to myself "hey its Chris Candido, cool" and I watched. he won the match they went to commercial and then came back and I saw Joey Styles for the first time. I thought he didn't look like the prototypical wrestling announcer. But he seemed OK. He said that the next footage we were about to see would "shock us". I thought yeah right, what could possible be so shocking. I saw Shane Douglas (who I really liked from his days in Mid-South) against Pit Bull #2. Then after the match Pit Bull #1, who was wearing a halo nursing a broken neck, entered the ring to confront Douglas. Shane grabbed the halo and started shaking it. I sat straight up in bed and said "Oh My God!" about the same time Joey said it. Woke my wife up (she was not happy about that). After that I was hooked. I live in Oklahoma so carrying MSG, NESN, Sunshine, and other channels that carried ECW cost me more money but I didn't care. I was happy to hear TNN picked up ECW but unfortunately it was a watered down version.

Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me?
RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool.
Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant.
RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.

Sounds like their only choice would be to make IMPACT! their flagship (only) show, cut out the PPVs all together for awhile (unless they want to keep running them until too many cable providers stop carrying them to even bother to produce them)
