I been watching a lot of old ECW and laughed about some things. 1. The Sandman has to be one of the worst characters/wrestlers ever. He had to be picked out of a pool hall. 2. Bill Alfonso has to be the most annoying person in history of wrestling 3. I forgot how unstoppable and unbeatable RVD was.

I loved RVD. He was so good. Was Bill Alfonso the guy that non stop blew that whistle?

RVD made ECW my favorite wrestling organization to watch. He is easily my favorite wrestler of all time. Could you imagine him feuding with Austin at the peak of the Attitude era? That would have been awesome!

Honestly in all my years of watching wrestling I don't think I ever seen RVD pinned cleanly.

I stopped watching wrestling by the time he went to the WWE---I'm sure it happened there. But he was TV champ for two consecutive years. Maybe Sabu beat him? I'm not sure.

Sandman was awesome. He couldn't wrestle a lick, but as a character he is probably one of if not the most recognizable guy in ECW history. His entrance alone made him fun.

Alfonso also ruled. I earned respect for him the night he fought Beulah and bled buckets all over the ring. Dude was a tough SOB for being a ref most of his career.

I liked RVD, but always thought he was a big overrated as a wrestler. He had a good gimmick, but dude was sloppy in the ring. Still fun to watch though.

ECW back then was such a breath of fresh air compared to all other wrestling. You had match types to cover everyone from brawling and barbwire to great technical wrestling.

Does anyone follow Chikara? It seems like it's a mix of really good technical stuff and outright silliness.

RVD was a great wrestler, but sucked on mic...which severely hampered his ability to be a wwf/wcw wrestler.

I may be going by myself after work on Tuesday but the only thing I see are options to buy 2 tickets. Anyone know of anyone looking, or what would be my odds of unloading the extra ticket within the next 3 days?

I ordered TLC tonight.

Looking forward to Cena/Ziggler and Shield vs Hell No/Ryback. Plus tag title match shouldn't be bad, and Sheamus and Show should have a stiff fight.

Ha. That was an awesome finish. Sin Cara jumped from the apron on to the top rope and Sandow pushed him backwards outside the ring through a table.

Good match to open the show.

I really hope they don't mess up this stuff with the Shield like they did with the Nexus.

Ambrose is a future world champ.

Cesaro beats R-Truth still the US champion.

Decent match, nothing too special.
