Awesome to see you go through the 2009 ECWs. I remember a Swagger/Dreamer hardcore match early in the year that people were calling the best Dreamer match ever at the time. I so wish I was actually watching ECW weekly back then. I'm going to try to find all of the 2008 shows. Too much Henry, Hardy and Finlay for me not to.
Marcus Bagwell was a pretty solid face in peril from 93 until he joined the nWo. And I can't fucking stand him.
The year is just as much fun as I remembered. So glad it's holding up. Swagger/Dreamer extreme rules was a late 2008 match. It did own based on my memory. It was the match that made me care for Jack Swagger. I might have to take the time to watch it again. Got to the first Christian/Dreamer ECW Championship match on 4/28 and I have to say it's pretty good. Dreamer managed to pull another one out of his hat there. Idk about quality since I didn't check, but Dailymotion has some 2008 ECW's on there. You could test the waters and see what works.
God I forgot Boogey was around that long, I mean I know the guy was semi-popular but he wore out his welcome more quickly than that fat oiled up guy who appeared like every two months.
I've saw most of the good stuff that I missed Sabin, watch way, way too much wrestling nowadays, the actual Foley/Orton storyline is brilliant, the match annoys the hell out of me though like, it's good, maybe ***1/2 good but I'd much rather have Edge/Foley over it and the whole bait and switch with the flaming 2x4 is fucking horrific.
Randomly came back for a spell. The KANE killed him in 2 minutes and poof. Gone. Wonder who wised up and made that decision.
Alright cool, cool. Wasn't sure if you got around to playing catch up with the quality stuff missed from that timeframe. Ah yes, they did jip us with the fire in that one. Personally I felt they made up for it. Orton proved he's worthy by taking nearly all the sick bumps he could. (not quite all
since he didn't do the barbed wire boards) It's in my personal favorites dossier. Seen it, damn, well over 50 times by now. Strictly guessing there, but it's a LOT. Comparing to Foley/Edge is hard. I thought both matches accomplished exactly what they needed to and gave us two compelling, awesome Hardcore bouts. Foley/Edge did have FIRE though. That seems to nudge it in first for some people, haha. The constant is Mick at the end of the day. The man is the best. He rocks my socks. Or sweatsocks, given whom I am referring to.
