Extreme Championship Wrestling produced some captivating stories during their early years of producing shows. One of the most memorable feuds to ever take place in ECW happened between Raven and The Sandman.
After a failed career in WCW as Scotty Flamingo and in the WWF as Johnny Polo, Raven appeared in ECW in January 1995 as a loner and hating everyone. He hated the guy that brought him into the company, Stevie Richards. Alongside Richards, Raven was quite successful in his feud with Tommy Dreamer and won the ECW Tag Team Championships.

The grading period was from August 1st 1997 to August 31st, 1998. Read the rest of this entry »

1992 is one of my favorite years in professional wrestling. WWF had most of the top names in wrestling and the rise of Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, plus whacky characters like Papa Shango! WCW had a stellar roster too. But, the focus for this article is on the WWF. I’ll be looking through the year and mention both the good and the bad for what was happening.
Of course, this will be broken up into two parts. Part one will highlight what happened from January 1st to June 30th, 1992. Here we go… Read the rest of this entry »
