ECW: Hardcore TV
The Best from the FALL of 1995

There is a TON going on in ECW in October and November 1995. Here is just a sample of what is happening. Since Gangsta’s Paradise, Raven and Stevie Richards regain the ECW tag belts, and then lose them in a three-way dance to Public Enemy. The Sandman loses the ECW world title to the unlikely hero Mikey Whipwreck. Plus, STEVE AUSTIN. Not that he’s really wrestling all that much. He’s just cutting some of the best promos of his career.

ECW: Unreleased Vol. 2

ecw unreleased vol 2

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.

Joey Styles and Tommy Dreamer are your hosts. They show up every three matches or so, and they basically put people over and don’t take anything too seriously. There are some bits of footage here and there while they talk, which adds a nice touch. Also, many of these matches are proceeded by the full promos that went along with them when they originally aired, so that’s cool too. Read the rest of this entry
