Tonight, Saturn takes fights in a submission warm-up exhibition before his big match with the Television Champion, Taz, who has promised that he’d make Saturn tap out in five minutes or less.

We are just four nights removed from the largest night in Extreme Championship Wrestling history.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have made it to the dance! Tonight, Extreme Championship Wrestling brings pay-per-view to the land of extreme.

ECW has returned and said return has arrived in a BIG way. Thanks to you, the fans of ECW, we proudly present ECW Barely Legal 1997! Championships will be defended, rivalries will progress and history will indeed be made…
