Also, although it's remembered by it's hardcore style, ECW showed several styles of wrestling, including Lucha Livre, in its shows, while WCW and WWE gave the audience only sports entertainment.

Such variety deserves recognition and respect

Re: The original ECW

^ The company built itself around The Sandman, who's pretty much just wrestled a hardcore style so it's often stereotyped for being just about hardcore. They shoulda just invested more in Taz imo, at least he's a guy that could actually wrestle and is damn good on the mic.

WCW had every style. The cruiserweight division had every style covered. And there were some main eventers like Sting and DDP that were great workers and always had good matches.

The best promotion in history, with the possible exception of the old Florida territories.
