"GET THE WWE OUT!" -- WWE tarnishes the legacy of the original ECW
19 June 2006 | by iamnotafilmmakerSee all my reviews

The debut episode of "ECW on SCI-FI" was a disaster. The show was a complete and utter train-wreck. Everything that could have gone wrong in a WWE-run incarnation of "ECW" did, and did in the worst ways possible.

Since the debut episode the WWE has had a couple of ups and downs with ECW... mostly downs, though.

The WWE 'creative' team decided to remove the no-rules element of ECW. Instead, every match in WWE's "ECW" is now contested under "WWE Rules." This means that weapons are no longer legal in ECW. This means that matches can now end in a disqualification. This also means that when there happens to be a no-DQ match it's billed as being held under "Extreme Rules" (which is an oxymoron). The no-rules environment was the very basis of what "Extreme" Championship Wrestling was always about. The fact that the WWE has chosen to neuter ECW at its very base like this is proof enough to know that this product is doomed.

When the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) sued Vince McMahon a couple of years back there was an advertising campaign that read "GET THE F OUT" - a reference to the World Wrestling 'F'ederation changing from "WWF" to "WWE" (World Wrestling 'E'ntertainment)... It's time for a new campaign for this new 'ECW' product: "GET THE WWE OUT!"
