When this DVD set was released it was and still remains the best selling set ever released by the WWE, and to real wrestling fans that is not a suprise at all.
This 2 disc set tells the history of one of the most violent and popular promotions in the pro wrestling business.
ECW started as Eastern Championship Wrestling and morphed into Extreme Championship Wrestling after Paul Heyman took over the company. Having such stars as Terry Funk, Sabu, The Pit Bulls, Raven, The Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, Dawn Marie, Beuhula and many more the company thrived and grew to a monster that it seemed nobody could stop, until companies like WCW and WWE began to slowly eat up all the talent and the regional wrestling scene was disappearing.
For wrestling fans, you just cannot go wrong with this set and it includes such matches as Mikey Whipwreck Vs. The Sandman, Tazz vs. Bam Bam Bigelow, and the match I consider to be one of the 10 best matches in the history of wrestling, Tommy Dreamer Vs. Raven at an event called Wrestlepalooza 97. This one is wild, out of control and features Jerry Lawler in the ring, in which he says he had to sneak out after it was over as the crowd was so angry. This kind of wrestling will never be seen again as wrestling now caters to the snotty nosed kids in the crowd and has, and many things have, been destroyed by mass marketing and the USA way of doing things. It was an era I will never forget. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
