• The Infamous Mass Transit Incident Took Place 25 Years Ago Today In ECW

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on November 23, 1996, ECW hosted an untelevised House Show at the Wonderland Greyhound Park in Revere, Massachusetts.

This event included the infamous “Mass Transit Incident”, which saw the pro wrestling debut of 17 year old “Mass Transit” (Real name: Erich Kulas), who had lied to promoter Paul Heyman about his age and his professional wrestling training (he had none).

Before the Tag Team Match, Mass Transit requested New Jack to do the blade-job for him, but was eventually cut too deeply by the experienced Hardcore Wrestler, so the match turned into a bloodbath rather quickly.

Only Fan-Cam video footage exists of the incident.

Mass Transit was escorted out of the arena with medical attention.

He passed away at the age of 22 in 2002 due to complications from gastric bypass surgery.
