  • A show that I loved, and that should have never stopped. ECW on TNN, had it all. The best part being was that it was extreme as anything goes.

    A show that I loved, and that should have never stopped. ECW on TNN, had it all. The best part being was that it was extreme as anything goes. I loved all the characters the show had, and the wrestlers could certainly put on a great show for those crazy fans.
  • Extreme wrestling came to TNN on a Friday night and the network dropped the ball.

    While the product was water downed over the years (98-01) TNN mishandled this show completely. Paul Heyman worked miracles with the crew he had at the time and with how he had to deal with the networks censoring and politics. I mean think of a Hard Rock video being played on CMT, that was how the network felt about ECW. The only time the show was advertised was while it was on and it was still the highest rated program on the channel. Overall TNN messed ECW over using it to test waters to lure the WWF to TNN. After they bought Vince over to TNN they changed the format of the channel to Spike TV, where ECW as it was six years ago would of been a perfect fit for the channel. Now all TNN/Spike TV has to show for what they did is TNA, which will never compete with the WWE, and will never reason the iconic status of ECW. So my opinion is this, ECW is underappreciated because of how the network treated them at the time, it could also be considered before it's time because if it was named ECW on SpikeTV i believe ECW would of worked.moreless
  • Good wrestling company; bad show

    7.0
    Extreme Championship Wrestling was a great wrestling company, however, ECW on TNN wasn't a great show. TNN wanted to use ECW on TNN to hype Roller Jam, a show on after ECW on TNN. They also put a lot of restrictions on ECW, which made booker Paul Heyman upset and book outlandish and strange storylines. One one occasion, TNN wanted an hour of new wrestling, Heyman gave them Rob Van Dam vs Jerry Lynn from 1999. Towards the end of the series, Heyman was busy trying to find ECW a new TV deal and was working on the remake of the film "Rollerball," so booking went into the hands of Tom Laughlin (aka Tommy Dreamer) and Mark LoMonaco (aka Buh Buh Ray Dudley.) With Heyman's focus gone from the show, it suffered ratings. When World Wrestling Federation moved its programming from USA Network to TNN, ECW On TNN was cancelled, due to a clause in WWF's contract that stated no other wrestling promotions could have a TV show on TNN while WWF was on the network.moreless
