By April 1st, 2001, both World Championship Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling were out of business leaving a lot of top names wrestlers available for independent shows. In this case, former ECW/WCW wrestlers Sandman and Chris Candido appeared on a show for the wrestling company Legacy Wrestling Enterprises. The show took place on December 5th, 2002 and was held in Fort Worth, Texas.

I can see how the legends on the roster wouldn’t be beneficial, but the talent roster is quite impressive for a startup company and the young wrestlers would develop into great workers. Read more
