A great look behind the scenes.
This DVD was a so good that I have watched it about ten times.It's nice to hear what was really going on from the wrestlers themselves.Even though ECW was basically a commercial(they couldn't get on TV so they just bought an hour of advertising time and ran the show) for all but the last year of it's existence, it's still surprising to learn that the wrestlers were handling all the merchandise and even answering the phones.It's even more surprising to learn how many people weren't getting paid on a regular basis.And it's down right mind blowing to learn that the people who weren't getting paid were the ones who stuck around the longest.I really only have two problems with this DVD.First, they only interviewed people who were contracted by the WWE at the time of filming and the reason why is extremely clear.Vince McMayhem wanted to make sure that no one told the truth about him and how he worked long and hard to destroy ECW, just like he did to the NWA.And he succeeded, his boys were "team players" and I wouldn't be surprised if Vince actually scripted their interviews.The second thing I didn't like was how they pretty much glossed over the TNN year.Heyman talked about how he hated TNN but they never explained any of the on screen madness from that final year.I would have loved to know why Billy Corgan showed up for two minutes and was never seen again.But I guess it would have been impossible to cover everything so I can't really complain.This is a definite must see for anyone who ever liked wrestling.
