From 1992 until its ignominious end in 2001, Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) offered a full-tilt-gonzo alternative to the "Big Two" (World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation) in raw, bloody, no-holds-barred matches featuring a cadre of future stars like Mick "Mankind" Foley, Rob Van Dam, and Shane Douglas, as well as past veterans like Terry Funk; the promotion's wild history is detailed through some of its best-known matches in volume one of the retrospective DVD series ECW Unleashed. Ringside announcer Joey Styles, the voice of ECW during its heyday, serves as host for the three-disc set, detailing its rise from a Philadelphia-based offshoot of the National Wrestling Alliance to a genuine contender with its own pay-per-view specials and a talent stable that rivaled the majors. Said talent included the aforementioned grapplers, as well as up-and-comers like Bam Bam Bigelow, Taz, and the absurdly athletic Sabu, each of whom delivered ECW's signature brand of rules-free mayhem, which included violent gimmick matches such as Singapore cane and Flaming Table matches, as well as Mexican lucha libre and Japanese wrestling. By the late '90s, ECW was attracting a sizable viewership, as well as the attention of WWE and WCW, which lured away its biggest names with high-priced salaries; the mass migration, combined with other financial issues, spelled the promotion's doom in 2001, and it was soon absorbed by WWE.

But its best brawls live on in the memories of ECW fans, who will undoubtedly appreciate the trip down memory lane via some of the league's biggest matches (preserved in the less-than-high-fidelity presentation of '90s-era TV), including the 1994 World Heavyweight Championship match between Douglas and 2 Cold Scorpio, which marked the launch of ECW as its own entity, as well as the momentous 1998 championship bout between Van Dam and Jerry Lynn. Styles's commentary also touches briefly on the low points in ECW history, including the suicide death of Mike Awesome and the money issues that led to the league's downfall, though these are given less airtime than the highlight reels. In short, it's nearly as complete a package as ECW fans might want from a retrospective DVD, save for its surprising lack of extras. These can be found on the Blu-ray edition of the set, which includes two grueling matches from 1994, including Tommy Dreamer vs. Jimmy Snuka and a grisly triangle match between Sabu, Douglas, and the seemingly indestructible Terry Funk. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

ECW started as a small, Philadelphia-based local wrestling company, but rapidly became a sensation that built a passionate fan base and influenced both WCW and WWE permanently. Extreme Championship Wrestling was known for its intense matches, fan interaction, and introducing a number of future superstars to the general public, including Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Sandman, Taz, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, the Dudley Boyz, Rob Van Dam, Shane Douglas, and more. Now for the first time in years, ECW returns to home entertainment with The Biggest Matches in ECW History. Hosted by the longtime unmistakable voice of ECW, Joey Styles, this home video release collects some of the most amazing and over-the-top matches in ECW history, some of which have never before been released on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars ECW WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU November 25, 2012
By Tom
Verified Purchase
When I heard this dvd was going to be released I was so excited. I was one of the people who used to do the whole underground tape trading. I loved ECW and I still love watching some of the matches and some of the people who made that company great. I think this set is a pretty good set but there were some things about it that I didn't like. One of the things was editing the ECW crowd. Hell, they were part of the show so I think this was a bad move from WWE. They should have slapped on a rating for the set and released it like they did the The Rise and Fall of ECW. Some of the matches were questionable as well but overall it was a good set.

The first match was the tournament finals for the NWA world title between Shane Douglas and 2 Cold Scorpio. This was a great match and a great way to start the show. I was always a fan of both of these men, Shane with his technical skills and Scorpio with his high flying ability. This match did not disappoint. Of course, the aftermath of this match is what started the whole EXTREME movement.

Up next was a match from Harcore TV between Raven and Tommy Dreamer. This is truly one of the greatest, maybe the greatest feud, in ECW history. I remember when Tommy first started with the company and he would come out in his singlet and smile. The fans would boo the crap out of him until he took his "caning." This was a good match but these two would have many other better matches. As a side note, this is the debut of Beulah, who would go on to be Dreamer's real life wife.

Could not wait for the next one: Dean Malenko and 2 Cold Scorpio vs. Eddie Guerrero and Taz. I refuse to add the extra Z to Taz's name. That was a WWE thing and this is him competing in an ECW ring not a WWE ring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Round of Applause for ECW Unreleased May 5, 2012
By DHads
This may have not been reased yet but I have to give this video and WWE an round of applause for the concept because WWE, even if they may not show it, has the sense to realize that not everyone wants to see the same old WWE product with the same old ring, same old production, and same old wrestlers all the time that's why WWE's videos for ECW, WCW, AWA, WCCW have been so successful because it's a way for WWE to expose their fans to wrestling they may not have seen before and a way to give new fans a history lesson in wrestling.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original EXTREME Is Back! June 13, 2012
For the first time in almost 6 years, WWE has gone into their vault to release a collection of ECW matches. Now it should be noted that this set is advertised to include matches that have been previously unreleased to DVD however a few of them were released by the original ECW before WWE acquired the footage so these matches haven't been released by WWE with the exception of the Taz vs. Sabu match from "Barely Legal" since WWE did release that entire PPV on DVD with the second One Night Stand PPV.

NWA World Championship Tournament Final: Shane Douglas vs. 2 Cold Scorpio - Douglas attempted to ground Scorpio early & worked over the legs but both men were so evenly matched that they were able to wrestle back & forth against each other during the first half of the match. The match was eventually taken into the crowd where Scorpio was suplexed onto the guardrail stomach first before the match got taken back into the ring where Douglas continued to target it. While the action was nice, this match was more famous for the aftermath that created EXTREME Championship Wrestling.
"Hardcore TV" Aug. 94

Tommy Dreamer vs. Raven - This was a different Tommy Dreamer than most people remember as he came out in a wrestling singlet & t-shirt as Raven started the match with a bang by jumping over onto Dreamer right from the start before the brawled throughout the arena using anything they could get their hands on like the post, wall, door, trash can, table, chair, eggs, a plastic dinosaur, the kitchen sink (yes, you read the last three right). They spent more time on the outside than they did in the inside before Dreamer turned it up DDTing everyone in sight before confronting Beulah who with Raven at this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skip to discs 2 & 3
Disc 1 was w little too slow paced. The next 2 discs made up for it. Sabu, Tazz, RVD, and Mike Awesome have the best matches. Scratches my ECW itch, proper!
