The%20hardcore%20history%20of%20Extreme%20Championship%20Wrestling.

This is the story of a group of renegades in a bingo hall in Philadelphia who changed the way the world sees sports-entertainment.

It begins in 1992 with the foundation of Eastern Championship Wrestling by a pawnbroker named Tod Gordon and ends on Feb. 16, 2010 with a match between Christian and Ezekiel Jackson. Along the way, the daring promotion, propelled by the boundless vision of Paul Heyman, launches the careers of Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho and Eddie Guerrero, triggers WWE’s Attitude Era and WCW’s Cruiserweight division, offends common decency, busts more chairs than a fat camp, goes bankrupt, folds, resurfaces as a WWE brand and folds again.

What’s left behind are the barbwire laced memories of sports-entertainment’s most fearless brand.
