: This was a tournament final.
: Title awarded to Douglas by forfeit when Tito Santana didn’t show up for the match.
: Douglas pinned Funk in an eight-man tag team Ultimate Jeopardy match which included Shane Douglas, Mr. Hughes and Public Enemy against Road Warrior Hawk, Kevin Sullivan, The Tazmaniac and Terry Funk. Due to a prematch stipulation, the title changed hands. Also, on August 27, 1994, Eastern Championship Wrestling was renamed Extreme Championship Wrestling once Shane Douglas denounced the NWA to break away and become their own seperate promotion.
: This was a triple-threat match which also involved Steve Austin.
: Stevie Richards substituted for Raven in a tag match that had as a stipulation that if he got pinned, Raven would lose the belt. The tag match ended up being The Sandman and Tommy Dreamer against Stevie Richards and Brian Lee.
: Shane Douglas was victorious over both Sabu and Terry Funk in this three-way elimination match.
: This was a three-way match also involving Masato Tanaka.
: Even though Tazz was working for the WWF at the time, Vince McMahon allowed him to come over to ECW and squash Mike Awesome for the ECW world title belt because of his recent signing with WCW for the fear that Mike Awesome would take the belt with him.
: This was a Double Jeopardy match also involving Justin Credible and The Sandman.
: This was a Tables, Ladders, Chairs, and Canes match also involving Justin Credible.
: On April 11, 2001, ECW shuts down and the WWF buys their assets, which makes Rhino the final REAL ECW world heavyweight champion.
