7. Al Snow On What Made ECW Successful In Its Original Run, Goldberg To Become A Part Of A Popular Comedy Show
– Al Snow On What Made ECW Successful In Its Original Run
In a column published on Sports Illustrated, Old School Wrestling Veteran Al Snow discussed the success of the original ECW. Below is what he wrote:
“There was a need and a void in the wrestling community for ECW. The other two companies, in WCW and WWF, weren’t providing what the audience in Philadelphia wanted. ECW was their promotion, and they really did build and create ECW along with the very wrestlers themselves. And the wrestlers? We felt it was our brand, and we all felt it was us against WCW and the WWF. I started saying backstage that we were ‘the island of misfit toys’. We didn’t fit in or match with the other two promotions, but we survived and thrived in ECW, and I think the fans felt like that, too. People who didn’t identify with WWF or WCW made ECW their own. I would love nothing more than a re-creation, but you will never be able to have all those components fit together so perfectly to create a promotion like ECW.”
