A glorified mediocre North American Independent wrestling promotion with no future or anything worthwhile that you couldn't find elsewhere. Usually backed by wannabe smarks without a mite of ring knowledge who live on internet message boards. Ruled with an iron fist by the son of legendary promoter Jerry Jarret, Jeff Jarrent, though not entirely visible on the surface, per se. While the Jarrets are technically minority owners, Panda Energy's (the parent investors) owner's daughter, Dixie Carter, just so happens to run TNA. She also just so happens to be very tight with Jeff Jarret. Nuff said. While the talent (Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, AMW, etc.) and wrestling minds (Mike Tenay, Scott D'Amore, etc.) are all there, the smooth execution of all the aforementioned isn't. Bar none one of the worst, if not THE worst, Heavyweight divisions on North American soil EVER. Their current World Champion is an overhyped, reach-for-the-channel-changer, WWE reject with no credibility who has proven to be a lackluster babyface from the onset of his reign. With Scott Steiner being recently brought into the fold and Kevin Nash's expressed interest in the booking end of things, it's only a matter of time before all the remaining big ECW names will finally be able to appear at the now annual One Night Stand ECW reunion show.
