Yeah to an extent, when they would do their crossover stuff.

The real reason why was money. They didn't have any. People doing work for the business outside of wrestling for no extra pay or sometimes wouldn't get paid at all. If Eric Bischoff would come up to you and say I'd like to pay you $100,000 (or whatever) a year and all you have to do is wrestle maybe 2 or 3 times a week and travel is low, what would you do? I think it's shitty but business is business and with ECW there just wasn't any money. I'm very surprised on how long ECW lasted.

And THAT is the other half of why ECW folded.
that was kid kash but to answer the question 1. paying for fedex instead of regular mail to send the tapes out *an example of how money was wasted* and 2.not having a sustainable product gore and shock value can only get you so far see the likes of czw/3pw/xpw to see how far that gets you
