Tittle97...really? ECW was big, but nowhere as big as WCW. ECW had a lyal, almost fanatic fanbase, but it wasn't HUGE. I like ECW also, but i tend to remain real on the matter. Nothing, not the ratings, production value, or violence, tends to say it was bigger then WCW. With your logic, then it was bigger then WWE because for a short time WCW was bigger then WWF/E. I don't "love" bischoff, but i appreciate what he did for the wrestling business for a short time. He was almost solely responsible for the best era in wrestling from the mid 90s to late 90s. If you believe ECW, as great as it was, was bigger then WCW your CRAZY imo...damn!
Sony, you are CRAZY! ECW was HUGE and much more important than WCW. You love you some Bischoff....damn
i totally agree with this blog, hurricane helms has had no impact what so ever on the wrestling industry and if anyone remembers him, they wont remember him as the longest cruiserweight champ gregory helms, but they will remember him as the joke the hurricane whoms gimmick was dropped because of hurrican katrina and then brought back
im not mad about what helms said but im mad about how he did it. he;s supposed to be a professional and professionals dont do that. If he truly feels that way about shawm, he could;ve called him and expressed that but we all know these trash wrestlers do it for attention. And my whole thing is helms has been suspended for steroids so whats his point.
Also HBK is a hero to many whom doesnt even need to explain himself to us but he has. HBK being the man he is has admitted to drugs and how horrible of a person he was. Ted Dibiase Sr. also admitted to being a cocke head and now he has a church. These people and us included only owe one man an explanation and that's God but HBK and dibiase coming clean with their fans was an honorable deed

Hes probably more annoying than that in real life
I back HHH as the ultimate successor to Vince Mcmahon, key factor will be when he goes, if its short term for health reasons its a different call to if he goes in 10 years.
Actually, most people imo would say the greatest thing about wrestling in the 90s were 3 words...
W-C-W!!! I'm not taking away anything from Heyman, but WCW/Eric Bischoff was responsible for the greatest era in pro wrestling. Heyman WAS a wrestling genius, but IS he still a wrestling genius still remains to be answered. Lets not forget that Eric Bischoff was also a wrestling genius back in the 90s. He spotlighted the cruiserweight division, brought in big names such as Hogan, Nash, Hall, ect, created one of the biggest sensations in pro wrestling since the Ultimate Warrior...namely Goldberg. He had the insight to go on live while Raw was pre-taped. But this was well over a decade ago, and it seems that with time and age, bischoff has loss touch with the fans. Who is to say that Heyman doesn't fall under the same category? Is Heyman capable of being a success running a wrestling company...he was kind of over a decade ago. (lets face it, he knows wrestling, but not the inner workings of actually running a business...such as manging finances). Is he still a wrestling genius...even if everybody believes he is, nobody really knows!
OK, I've never commented before on this site. After all of the comments to this post, I figured that maybe I would set the record straight while still looking at this with a unbiased point of view. This all started a couple of weeks ago on Shane Helms internet show. Another person on his show asked him "which wrestler really disappointed him the most" and of course he answered HBK. Then he went on to rant on why he was disappointing by him. First off, I don't think he should have gone on the rant that he did. He was wrong to talk like that. He should have said something along the lines of "I don't want to get into it." He should have known better that all of this would blow up the way it did. Now, the whole, calling HBK's fans "idiots" was referring to people saying that "he has no right to say that. He's one of the greatest performers of all time." I get that. He is one of the greatest performers of all time. He wasn't attacking his in ring ability. He was attacking everything behind the scenes. These were the things that the "wrestling fans" didn't see. I nor any other wrestling fan who has never been on the road with him has no right to call Shane right or wrong. We don't know these things. Maybe some hand full of people have meet him over the years but, that's completely different. I'm not defending or going against what he said because like I said, I have no idea whether or not it's true. As far as hunting/killing animals for sport/fun, I in no way condone or will I ever defend people who do that. Now, that has nothing to do with being Christian. There is nothing in the bible going against hunting for sport but, I think we would all have to admit, you getting satisfaction out of killing anything, something is wrong. With that being said, I hope that their are other people who can look at this unbiased with this knowledge.
