Re: The original ECW

A lot of great talent passed through ECW, whilst being given a license to really show what they could do. Mick Foley's ECW promos are still amongst my favourites. As is an Austin promo whilst there. At the time it was awesome because it was different.

People look back now and say bullshit like "oh it was just glorified garbage wrestling". Yeah, that was part of what they offered - but it wasn't the whole package. It's hard to describe but, all I can say is Paul Heyman (for all his business faults) was a great motivator and brilliant at bringing the best out of people whilst hiding their flaws.

Watching it in this day and age as a relative newcomer, it might be hard to capture that feeling because of all that has passed since, but at the time it was something else.
