I will get shitted on but that is why I liked ECW. It was straight to the point and no talking and you had your high flying match, technical and hardcore. You had a bit of everything all in one. The only problem was Paul E was a scumbag and was in WWE pockets the whole time while bouncing checks. Again, you can't expect an audience to watch 3 hours of wrestling and on top of that storyline. No one here goes to the movie for 3+ hours.
You are not going to get shitted on by me, bro. I already said I loved ECW, and I do miss the company. They did have some great matches. The whole bouncing checks issue with Heyman really is inexcusable, and I think there are several wrestlers who never got paid for their work. I will give Heyman one thing though, when all of his stars were leaving he did try to create newer stars, and was innovative. Like you said, they got right to the point of the show and put on wrestling matches. One of the most annoying things the WWE does is the continuous flashbacks and replays of stuff that happened a week ago, month ago, etc. Why not give that 10 - 15 minutes to wrestlers to do their job? Doesn't help when your tag team titles, and mid card titles are all in the same feud, so one may not get defended at the Pay Per View (HIAC for example). I understand that WCW put the tag titles on Hall and Nash when Hogan was the WHC because Hogan rarely worked house shows, and this gave them a main event for House Shows involving a championship. Different from what WWE is doing right now.

I was never a ECW fan. But what would you prefer?

ECW or current WWE? Even I would prefer ECW.
ECW had great matches and shitty, bottom of the barrel storylines (not always, but a lot more than needed). WWE has alright matches and even worse storylines, because they aren't even intriguing, not even in a disgusting way.

ECW had one of the greatest storylines of all time and that Raven vs Tommy Dreamer. So many companies to copy it, but fail excluding Impact who succeeded in doing so.
