Product Details

Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) was a revolutionary force in the world of professional wrestling throughout the 1990s. Formed in 1992 by owner Tod Gordon, ECW originally belonged to the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) but withdrew after eclipsing the staid matches of rival members World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Although it amassed a huge cult following with a no-holds-barred style of fighting that included barbed-wire cages and other forms of bloody combat, ECW's success began to dwindle after the WWF and WCW adopted its hardcore format, draining the group's base audience and forcing it into bankruptcy in 2001. This documentary chronicles the rise and fall of the company that broke new ground in the field of sports entertainment through interviews and archival clips of classic matches featuring Raven, The Pit Bulls, Stevie Richards, Tommy Dreamer, and many more.
