ECW is gone, new era starts ‘NXT’

By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

What I have felt has been the best wrestling night in televison has come to an end.  Yes, while I do agree that the WWE version of ECW wasn’t working as a ratings draw.  The hardcore longtime wrestling fans never really accepted the branded verison of ECW even when they first tried it with the TV-MA format back in 2006 and really drew criticism when the WWE changed last June back to TVPG.  The big question was how could you make a program ‘extreme’ under a PG format?  Being on at 10:00pm, they could have used a little blood and maybe a hardcore match or two which more moderate violence by still maintaining the PG theme.

The WWE could not re-create what Paul Heyman did with the original ECW. Would have things been different if the WWE used the WCW name instead?  Probably not. 

I will miss the show that I felt had the best action over RAW and SmackDown.  I do look forward to ‘NXT’ which is a new version of tough enough that will makes it debut on February 23rd.  I am excited to see some talent from Florida Championship Wrestling that have potetial to be the future of the WWE that could end up on RAW or SmackDown.
