The second part of Tommy Dreamer on WWE Universe talking about it.......
 
Quote

Well with tonight marking the last episode of ECW. I will stick to my guns. I have one more blog after this and I am done. My friend Joey Styles has a great blog on WWE Universe about ECW and he addressed many of my thoughts(you think that guy knows how to tell a story of something almost like he was an announcer). I suggest you give it a read. He left out that on WWE Classics that I am his co host and I have a great time doing that. As a follower of the old ECW you get some deep insight into the insane behind the scenes of crazy ECW. We also have a ton of fun and make alot of jokes at everyones expense.

The Internet is a buzz about WWE dropping the ECW ball. Well lets look at what the world likes to call the WWE's greatest blunder the XFL. It looked like a great idea on paper. It had great network support but after the first week and great ratings, those ratings started to fall. Why? I feel  the level of play. Many die hard football fans realized that there was a reason the players were not in the NFL. Maybe they just did not belong. That could also hold true to the tv show ECW, no matter how hard we all worked, it could never be what it was, for so many reasons, I do not want to get into. However everyone wants to knock Vince McMahon for the XFL, but look at this many aspects of the XFL have been stolen by the NFL. The field camera view. The behind the scene lockeroom stuff. Having the viewer be almost on the field at all times, was what the XFL was all about. The NFL Network and every channel that carries football now does what that XFL tried to bring. So instead of blaming Vince. He deserves some credit for shaping the NFL the way it is today. As well as having the grapefruits for taking on the task.If you think about it Vince McMahon's vision good or bad has us all talking about his actions.

Many WWE Superstars had taken pride being on the ECW brand. I personally want to thank them all for their bumps,sweat and bruises during their ECW tenure.Everyone wanted more for themselves and the brand. I am sure Christian will continue to work his hardest to entertain on the last ECW show.

Here is my #2 favorite personal moment of the new ECW

June 7,2009 Extreme Rules PPV

The night I won the ECW Championship. I had made the pledge to leave ECW, if I did not win the ECW title. Many behind the scenes things were going on and I had taken enough. I put it all on the line and I did it. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I could not believe all the signs that were made for me. I loved the match. I loved the celebration afterwards. It proved to the world and to myself I still mattered. Thanks new ECW.

Thanks for reading,

Tommy Dreamer

Shame he had to spoil a blog by going into kayfabe for his second favourite ECW moment ever...
 
The rating was 1.14 which is very poor. Last ECW show ever should have been able to draw 1.3 ish.

Well Admin it was about WWE's version of ECW, thus why he named it his 2nd favourite moment, when you look at it, WWE's version of ECW didnt really use Dreamer to his full ECW potential so him winning the ECW title would've probably been one of the most memorable moments for the Innovator Of Violence, but if you asked him about his run in the real and original ECW, I bet none of this crap from the WWE ECW would have been featured.

I watched ECW this week, purely as it was the last one and thought they might give it some sort of send off, and was pretty shocked that they did nothing special for the last show.
 
I wasn't expecting Sandman and Sabu to return for the night or anything major like that, but I thought there might be at least a 'best-of' montage or something. But no, just a short (got the impression heavily-scripted) promo from Christian, which only served to show how massively over he is,  and he could read a shopping list in the ring and it would still be entertaining.
 
And I can't help but think that putting the title of Zeke was a final 'fuck you' to the original ECW - the win does nothing for him as A) He's been losing to Christian on the regular for months now, so 1 win doesn't equate to much, and B) It was the lamest hardcore match ever, with run-ins from the entire roster. I though Russo was back for second.
Fletch: Why didnt Vince just get a load of monitors to act as lumberjacks? Then Bret wouldnt have stood a chance. That monitor will be inducted in to the HOF at Wrestlemania 30.

It was such a dissapointment. A montage of ECW great moments would have been nice, but all the shts would either have contained christian, or superstars that are no longer with WWE anymore. They dont want to give RVD or sandman or anyone for that matter more publicity when they might go to TNA when they return. ECW was a totally bust, and i geuss the final show prooves that more than ever, and i agree christian could read a shopping list and it would be entertaiing. Christian is a Great Talent and i hope the ECW joke is behind him and he can concentrate on real completion of his career and win the World or the WWE titles

WWF was great. WCW is better. TNA is the best. And AJ Styles has competed in all three!!!

That's worth a look for those who haven't seen it. Christian gave a well spoken speech before his match.
 
I don't think he believed all of what he was saying but he did a great act of looking genuine.
 
He even brought up coming back with ECW instead of Raw or Smackdown.
