Re: CZW Discussion Thread
It's amazing how CZW went from a company I would never touch to a company I follow almost-religiously. I think a lot of people have moved away from the notion that CZW is nothing but a hardcore blood and guts no talented indy promotion. It seems as if many wrestlers themselves are willing to work for the company as well.
I remember when I first discovered CZW the roster was nothing but guys who did deathmatch stuff and when they tried to wrestling it was really sloppy. But since then a lot of talented guys have come out of CZW. For whatever reason it was, CZW became the place to work. Guys like Adam Cole, Jon Moxley, Sami Callihan all helped to lift CZW's image imo. They were all CZW guys. And they didn't mind working for the company despite its reputation. In the end, they did a lot of good for the company because CZW attracts a lot of talented workers nowadays.
I agree with Mope, that the company does get looked down upon because of the shit it did during its early days. Quite frankly, they deserve to get looked down upon because the stuff these guys did were really stupid. But within the last 5 years or so, CZW just did a complete 180. It's one of the bets indy companies if you ask me. Although, I'm not going to lie, their shows can still be huge misses. Still, the level of talent this company attracts it's unfair for fans to still brand them the company for guys who can't work.
