ECW stands for Extreme Championship Wrestling. ECW is more of a hardcore version of WWE and TNA. It started of in the 90's and almost when country wide before it was shut down. Recently the WWE has "re-vived" ECW.
In the 90's ECW matches always consisted under Extreme Rules Which basicly meant that there are no rules. Some of the main wepons were chairs,Tables, Barbed Wire and Fire. Some of the wrestler that started their include sabu, Tommy Dreamer, Sandman, RVD and Rey Mysterio

Now with the New ECW only one or two matches a night are called under extreme rules. Some of the wrestler that have joined ECW since it was revived are: Big Show, CM Punk, Kurt Angle and Test

The Current ECW champion is : The big show
The current Commentators are : Tazz & Joey Styles
It is currently being showed in USA on the sci-fi network and goes for 1 hour

ECW, or Extreme Championship Wrestling was a revolutionary american wrestling promotion. Notorious for its rowdy, die hard fans and willingness to push the envelop with story-lines and what could be done with wrestling...

However, due to constant money issues(Which haunted the company since it inception) ECW had to close in 2001...

Now Vinnie Mac who owns WWE decided to bring it back, and now you have a promotion thats a shadow of its former self.
Vince Macmahn thinks that he knows what the original ECW was all about, but sadly he is mistaken.

I dont want any WWECW or as I like to call it Entertainment Championship Wrestling, give me the original EXTREME Champonship Wrestling.
