I fondly remember bribing a friend to record ECW shows onto video tapes for me because my mother had refused to let me watch ECW.
It was far more graphic than WWE, she had told me, and it wasn't very lady-like for me to want to watch ECW. I would secretly pop in the ECW tapes while she was at work and lower the volume because my little brother was, and unfortunately still is, a snitch.
The delight of watching guys like Mike Awesome, Tommy Dreamer, Justin Credible, and Raven beat the crap out of each other week in and week out—there's just no price I can put on these memories.
So when TNA decides that they're going to rehash the three—consider me pissed.
Hasn't WWE put ECW and its legacy through enough? Stevie Richards might be able to perform, but Raven and Tommy Dreamer? No. Just no. Richards and Dreamer are both pushing 40, Raven is 45.
What does TNA think is going to happen here?
I predict lethargic matches sandwiched between awful promos. We all know this won't end well, so... why start? Let go of the past and let's promote the future.
