Jerry Lawler Comments On Why He Called ECW, Extremely Crappy Wrestling
June 16, 2015 (18:30) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry The King Lawler recently spoke with Joshua Caudill of CraveOnline.com to discuss why he called ECW, Extremely Crappy Wrestling, and more. Down below is an excerpt from that interview in which he explains why he called ECW that.
When ECW came along and sort of invaded the WWE, and I made the comment that ECW stood for Extremely Crappy Wrestling.
To me, it was like these guys just came along and watched all of our old Memphis tapes and went out and did what we did and then called it extreme. We were doing extreme wrestling matches in the Memphis territory before most of these guys were even born " things like the Terry Funk empty arena match or the concession stand battle in Tupelo, Mississippi.
I got ran over in the parking lot by Eddie Gilbert, but back in that day, you were under the pressure of having to put on a live event and not only a live television show every Saturday morning but had to follow it up with a live event every single Monday night in Memphis so there was a lot of pressure to try and come up with something bigger and better every single week.

Steve Corino Comments On His Time In TNA And His Relationship With Paul Heyman
June 13, 2015 (03:00) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
Steve Corino recently spoke with PWMania.com to discuss his time in TNA as well as his relationship with Paul Heyman. Here are the highlights.
Speak a little bit about your relationship with Paul Heyman:
Paul was always great because he had such visions of everything but he also let everyone else talk to you or talk about their character and sit there and get your input and ask what do you think? Where do you see yourself? and I'll never forget that because he wanted real emotion to come out he'd would give me an outline for a promo because he wanted me to like real emotion to come and that's where I learned bad habits too because in ECW you weren't given times you weren't told hey you gotta get this match done in 15 minutes or 8 minutes or 6 minutes. It was go out there, kill yourselves, steal the show and we'll clip it as far as we need it. I bring it back to Ring of Honor in 2009' and were like hey we need a commercial break, we need this and I'm like whoa I need to learn how to work TV! It was always a positive experience.
How was your time while in TNA and what do you remember the most during your run?
Now when I was in TNA it was still in Nashville and very unorganized so you can't compare the TNA of 2003-2004 to what's now. No, I wouldn't have foreseen it. With wrestling like with life there is always the next big thing and you hear it and if it happens cool but if it doesn't then it's not. Ring of Honor could sit there and tell me that we're replacing Raw on Monday and everything like that and I'm like until I see it. I guess wrestling teaches you that but I guess life teaches you that. So I didn't see it but I think the wrong people were always in charge of creative. I believe if you're going to be an alternative to what the WWE is doing you have to be different. The six sided ring was weird but it was different. Now how do we capitalize that. We should capitalize on it this way.
Why are we having guys write the show that were writing for WWE and then got let go? I use baseball as a theory. Why are we going to grab the manager that was 60 and 102 with a great potential team and we hire him to manage our team when we could get somebody that was better? I believe that hurt them. Jim Cornette said you only get that shot to make that first impression and then you're done. I believe it's so true. I think that's what's hurt them. Coca Cola is always going to be the name brand but there is room for Pepsi and RC and any other soda. WWE is always going to be that name brand but there is room. You just gotta be different. We're different. Ring of Honor is different. NXT is different from WWE. There has got to be alternatives because if you don't and there is nothing different about the product why wouldn't you just wait to watch the product that you know?

Ezekiel Jackson Talks About His Time In WWE And Future Plans While In Lucha Underground
June 06, 2015 (21:15) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
Lucha Underground star Big Ryck (better known as Ezekiel Jackson in WWE) recently spoke with PWmania.com about his time in WWE, his future in Lucha Underground and his run as ECW Champion.
How was your time in WWE and what was the idea behind putting you as ECW Champion?
"For me you're told from the past you expect that once you get a lower title that its a stepping stone and I was expecting that at time that I was going to be challenging for at the time the IC title, US title and then eventually one of the world titles. It was definitely for me looking like a positive for the future. There wasnt anything that said were going to sit down and have a conversation hey, this is what were going to do with you or this is what youre going to do. They only do that to certain people. There are a few guys whose whole career is outlined for them but there are some of the mid-level guys, lower level guys you show up work and perform and do what youre supposed to do and hope that you keep getting the recognition and the respect of the fans whether they love you or hate you. It wasnt there was any discussion about hey we put the ECW title on you and this is the next step. It wasnt as if it was written in stone its just that for me that I got this lets see if they see something in me what can I do next and Ill let it go wherever."
Since leaving Lucha Underground, you've wrestled everywhere and currently in Lucha Underground, what does your future hold in the promotion?
"I think the skys the limit. We shook up wrestling within the first couple of months of being on TV. What is this new thing? What are they doing and can we have more? I think we shook up wrestling to quote Muhammed Ali, shook up the world and I think the skys the limit for me is the same thing. I want do what I do best. I beat people up and Ill make money doing it. That works for me. We really have a great crew. Everyone shows up and we know what we have to do. We have a lot of freedom that were comfortable with what were doing and whether or not you have talent that are all mind you get better creative, you get better production better value from people there and you enjoy going to work more. If you see yourself saying hey thats my idea and then its seen youre motivated to want to do more and keep going week after week and come back better."

ECW Original Asking Fans for Help with Medical Bills, Has Been Hospitalized for Months, Off Drugs
May 25, 2015 (21:00) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
- A fan has set up a GoFundMe account for ECW Original Axl Rotten and thanks to mentions from Chris Jericho and Jim Ross, the page has raised $1,055 of their $12,000 goal by 35 people in 21 days.
Rotten had his back give out on him in late October of last year and since then he has been hospitalized at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland to receive daily physical therapy. Rotten originally hoped he could resume his pro wrestling career and walk again but doctors have now informed him that surgery is unavoidable. Rotten requires two spinal surgeries on his cervical vertebrae and if the surgeries are not a success, doctors say he could spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
Rotten has exhausted all of his medical coverage and cannot pay his bills since he cannot work, which is why they are asking fans for assistance. Rotten also is looking for funds to help make his home wheelchair accessible for when he does get to leave the hospital. The GoFundMe page notes that Rotten is clean of all non-medically prescribed drugs these days and "he is both emotionally and mentally in the best place he has been in years, Unfortunately he is though physically at his lowest ebb."
Rotten tweeted the following a few days ago:
So when you been sitting in a hospital for close to 7mons it's time to speed this process up. I need to get the spinal surgery. #ecw @WWE

Daniel Bryan Sneak Peek Trailer, Sunny on Adult Film Reports, Joey Styles Says NXT Is Like ECW
May 25, 2015 (17:00) [ Indexed from Wrestling-Edge
- Below is a preview for the Daniel Bryan DVD Sneak Peek that airs on the WWE Network after tonight's RAW:
- Despite making comments to TMZ last week, WWE Hall of Famer Tammy "Sunny" Sytch is still downplaying the reports of her negotiating with Vivid Entertainment to star in adult movies. She wrote the following on Facebook yesterday:
"FYI: There is no definitive decision of me doing any kind of "video". I was approached, but no decision or negotiations have been made. Don't believe everything you read on the internet. If you do, you're more stupid than you already were."
- A fan on Twitter wrote WWE's Joey Styles and said pro wrestling hasn't been good since the original ECW days, which Styles obviously played a big role in. Styles replied and said WWE NXT is very much like the original ECW, but without the mindless bloody violence. Styles also replied to another fan who said mindless bloody violence is a good thing. Below are his tweets:
Actually, @TripleH's @WWENXT is very much like Original #ECW without the mindless bloody violence. I love it! https://t.co/wfzInYJ0Om
