The Rise And Fall Of (Extreme Championship Wrestling) ECW Wrestling
The ECW Wrestking was founded in 1992 by Tod Gordon and is one of the professional wrestling promotions, based in Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.
It was also known as Tri-states Alliance in 1991, which was owned by Goodhart Joel who later sold it to Gordon who was his partner then. Tod renamed it the Eastern Wrestling Championship, based on promoting young talent.
The ECW Wrestking decided to contrast the contemporary wrestling professional that was being marketed much to the interest of the families who were generally fond of the show.
The Eastern Wrestling Championship was later renamed Extreme Championship Wrestling an aimed at men between the ages of 18 to 35.
Heyman viewed the ECW Wrestling as a professional sport similar to the popular music that was then a hit in the early 1990; he then put his aim on driving the organization to a higher level.
Many of the ECW Wrestling shows were held at the Arena which was a bingo hall that was made private on a section of the interstate 95.
The shows held here were broadcasted live on one of the Philadelphia's local sports cable every evening on Tuesday. The chairs were simply made as they could be folded and there was also a set of four portable bleachers with every sort of the exceptional set replicating the style of wrestling and giving that atmosphere of being in a championship match.
Among the stations that have broadcasted the shows were the sports channel in Philadelphia, the WGTW 48 and the WPPX television 61.
Other shows were also broadcasted on MSG networks in New York City every Friday at night and on Saturdays too. ECW was once recognized and acknowledged as an upcoming local promotional and entertainment show. ECW, on April 13th 1997, broadcasted the 1st ever pay per view card for wrestling known as Barely Legal which was highlighted by Terry Funk and won the ECW heavyweight world championship.
Extreme championship wrestling continued to succeed in between the year 1998 and 1999.
In 2000 the ECW Wrestling made its debut on the west coast and is held yearly in Los Angeles in the summer, which was Extreme Wrestling pro'S home at the time and the owner Black Rob bought the 6 front row tickets for that show.
The ECW began its national broadcasting on TNN in 1999. It became one of TNN's biggest shows despite its low budget and less advertising. Later in 2000, ECW shows were cancelled from TNN and WWF Raw took over.
There is a DVD which shows the fall and rise of ECW. Paul Hyman later stated that the lack of media coverage on its shows was one of the major causes of the ECW's downfall.
It then struggled for a few months and tried to secure another deal with one of the national broadcasting televisions. In 2005 WWE started to reintroduce ECW through its past series of books and video library that also included a documentary on the rise and the fall of ECW.
