Greatest promotion of all time?

Old school ECW for me. (although WWECW was a great springboard for young talent.)

Re: Greatest promotion of all time?

WWE has fucked a lot of shit up, and when Vince fucks something up, HE FUCKS IT UP. So i'd resist saying them fully. Can't really pick one, NWA maybe.

I prefer original ECW. Some of the best TV and storylines in history with a strong roster, especially 1995-1999.

Well, the WWF/WWE. Its the one I grew up watching. I guess im a sucker for Vinnie's main event booking style and wrestling

Re: Greatest promotion of all time?

If we're talking success than the answer would be WWE of course. But if we're talking favorites I'd go WCCW during it's peak years.


I love professional-wrestling.

Just a question but wouldn't NJPW possibly be regarded as a bigger success, considering how long they've been in business?

In that vein, CMLL is holding their 80th Anniversary show this year.

WWE is pretty old

CWC, co-founded by Vince McMahon's grandfather was made in 1952, and it eventually led to the WWE today

Re: Greatest promotion of all time?

You know, the more I think about it, every TOP promotion of the past 50 years has been affiliated with NWA at one point or another

They were also the most successful company between 1990 and 1996 so yes, i suposse they deserve to be in the discussion


As far as enjoyment goes probably AWA/Memphis, give me one of those brawls over anything i can see in other places, only thing to give me the same level of entertainment will probably be luchas de apuestas
