Man I have been watching a bunch of the old ECW PPVs on the WWE Network with my son (He was born right before the original ECW went bankrupt and I only really watched WCW and WWF back then) and I have to say I am really enjoying it. I love the fact that it is not what WWE is or was at that time. The fact that they aren't in a big arena don't have the big budget that WCW and WWE has is really neat. I think due to that the wrestling is alot better. Even though I have seen some of them like RVD, Tazz the Dudleys in the WWE they just seemed different back then if that makes sense. So far I watched their first PPV Barely Legal and one other one that I don't remember the name of but I plan on watching a whole lot more. I am really really enjoying this it's really a shame that they aren't around anymore. Looking forward to watching another one tonight.

@ELI-ASH: Oh I have seen a few, I have seen the TNA one they did a few years ago then of course WWE had one right before they relaunched ECW but yeah you are right. Still though you would think they would be younger guys that would do that kind of wrestling.

@Tasuki well in terms of hardcore wrestling the promotion "CZW" has those but its not the same as ECW's. in CZW they take it up a level with light tubes,glass, in some early shows they used a weed wacker as a weapon.
WWE's Dean Ambrose wrestled for CZW.

@Tasuki - I don't have WWE Network but if they have any RVD vs Jerry Lynn ECW matches they are awesome...

@Splat: I am sure they do, they have every ECW PPV both from before WWE owned them to the one that when WWE bought them out.

So far I have to say my favorite are the RVD and Sabu matches and I also like Taz's matches too.

Well I watched ECW Heatweave 98 last night and man what a show that was. I especially liked the Taz VS Bam Bam Bigelow match such a great match. The Dudley Boyz in the Dudley street fight was really good too. Going to watch some more tonight for sure just not sure which one.

Yeah, Taz in ECW was awesome. People that only know the WWE version missed out. The Dudley Boyz on the other hand have been great every where they have been.

@Splat: Yeah by the time Taz came to WWE his career was pretty much over due to his stacking injuries. I remember seeing in have a few matches in WWE usually against Jerry Lawler but nothing as good as his matches were in ECW.

Yeah I totally agree with the Dudley Boyz heck that was one of the reason I would tune into TNA, but since they broke them up I stopped watching it. Heck I don't even think Devon is with TNA anymore.

I understand keeping bryan off tv to sell his "injury" but hes still doing house shows;in fact the night before raw he was in a steel cage match against Kane way to keep kayfabe WWE...

In other news i heard Kevin Steen went to a WWE tryout. Im hoping he gets sign ,Kevin is just amazing on the mic and hes a good wrestler too.Also if you guys are familiar with 'Sami Zayn",Kevin happens to be his tag team partner.

House shows don't really have much of an impact on storyline's though, in a sense storyline wise they don't exist, except on the rare occasions if there is a title change or they have to address an injury.

For instance, when Cena had an injury in a match with Wade Barrett during a steel cage match at a house show, it occurred right after the RAW where CM Punk attacked Cena with a chair, the next week, both Wade and Punk argued who gave Cena the injury.

So I just read that Scott Hall will be going into the WWE Hall of Fame of course it will be under the Razor Ramon name.

Also been watching alot of ECW on the WWE Network lol I am totally hooked. I watched the Tazz VS Sabu Unification Match at Living Dangerously 98 I think it was and my gosh what a match. Probably the best one I have seen in a long time. @the_shpydar: I also cause a Super Crazy and Tajiri match as well and that was a great match as well.
