ECW/Extreme Reunion Fallout
-- The Extreme Reunion people have booked a return date at the National Guard Armory in Philadelphia for June 30th. From the beginning, Shane Douglas and others involved have stated that this was not a reunion tour and that they were building a new promotion.
-- The plan is to use new talents along with the ECW alumni to create a new generation of sorts.

ECW Please let it rest in peace
ECW was a tremendous company that broke new ground and left us with so many memories. It closed its doors in 2001 and with a great deal of hype was brought back by the WWE for a one night stand in 2005. It was a great show one of the best PPV's of all time and honoured the memory of ECW well. In my opiion that should have been the end of it. It should have been allowed to go out on top. Instead a year later it was brought back again by the WWE this time by to have a weekly slot on si -fi. The legacy was spit on with each and every episode. After the show was stopped TNA attempted to have an ECW reunion show and failed to capture the feel of the old shows in my view. Plus it does'nt help that the name ECW and the names of some of the talent is owned by the WWE. Then finally another nail in the coffin happened the other night in the Extreme Reunion show. Sabu was found passed out as was Justin Credible so they were both unable to attend. Reports coming out have been incredbily negative. With the exception of the Jerry Lynn and crowbar match the show was apparently awful. Causing some of the fans, who are ECW fans, to start chanting for a refund. This show was booked by Shane Douglas who was given abuse by the fans as well. Douglas loves ECW no doubt but booked this show horribly. My point of this thread is for people to stop trying to recreate ECW magic for money or memory or whatever else. With each horrible show that is presented it ruins the memory of what was a great and innovative company. Stop leeching off the name ECW and let it finally rest in peace.
