Tod Gordon Critiques Vince McMahon For Ruining ECW



On a recent edition of “The Ten Count” podcast, ECW founder Tod Gordon discussed his new book about the now-defunct promotion and WWE rebooting ECW in 2006, along with Vince McMahon becoming the ECW World Champion.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On WWE’s version of ECW: “I started to watch the first episode. I saw this zombie come out. I said, ‘That’s it. I’m done. We’re back to cartoons, the first freaking match. Are you kidding me? That’s exactly what is anti-ECW.’ I genuinely believe that Vince brought that back whether you want to say he worked everybody else, maybe he did. I believe he did. He hated, I know that for a fact he loathed the fact that people would yell, ‘ECW ECW’, during his live shows that came across on TV over and over again. So he put the belt on himself, called himself the ECW champion, and tried to get as many people as possible to turn off the product and hate it and stop it.”

On fans still yelling “ECW” all these years later: “And yet, what is it, a month ago, Paul is on RAW, in Philly no less, and the whole building, 20,000 in 2023 mind you, going, ‘ECW, ECW ECW’, and he’s trying to sell it, ‘Yeah, those letters are dead’, but the fact they were legitimately saying that 30 years later, do you know how humbling and amazing that is? It’s incredible. It’s overwhelming.”
