ECW: Unreleased Vol. 2
Released: July 30, 2013

This review is for the 3-disc DVD version, not the 2-disc blu-ray that contains some extra matches.

The Rise and Fall of ECW — Disc One
Released by WWF: November 16, 2004

Matt’s review of The Rise and Fall of WCW inspired me to do more of a play-by-play review for the documentary instead of the three paragraphs I had previously. Sort of an abridged ECW history according to this WWE-produced release. While the WCW documentary goes only about 90 minutes, the much shorter history of ECW is given almost a whopping three hours! No justice, right, WCW fans? Read the rest of this entry
