PostSubject: ECW HOF Worthy?   Thu Aug 11, 2016 8:23 pm

It can be argued that Steve Austin's run as Stone Cold was based off his character in ECW and he definitely went THROUGH ECW though was already well known from his Hollywood Blond run in WCW so there is a definite grey area. Then there is someone like Rey Mysterio who started in ECW, was only there for a short time, may never have been discovered by a top two promotion without ECW, but is basically wholly known for his time in WCW. What about Terry Funk, who already had a Hall of Fame career well before his time in ECW but was an integral part to the rise of the company, are we counting him as an ECW guy? And to this I answer: I leave that up to your own interpretation.

The real question here is: Does time in ECW count? Should it count? Should it count in some instances and not in others?

Rob Van Dam: Former WWE World Champion, no small feat, but otherwise a midcarder and mainly known for his Television title run in ECW. Has been a top draw for a long time but big enough to warrant the Hall of Fame?

Raven: A legend by ECW standards, a beast in WCW's midcard with his Flock until he met the glass ceiling (as so many did), then transitioning into a staple of the Hardcore division in WWE. Will his contributions to wrestling as a whole be honored one day in the Hall of Fame?

Tommy Dreamer: Synonymous with ECW, he carried the flag not only for the original promotion but for the WWE reboot. He is known for little outside of ECW but was often an agent and well respected within the business. But is he respected enough?

Taz: Arguably the top singles star outside of Rob Van Dam to have grown up in ECW, debuting on WWE with a victory over the then undefeated Kurt Angle only to quickly fizzle out. Will his legendary matches in ECW and long commentary career put him among the great Hall?

Tajiri: A long time player in ECW and WWE, with a kicking style that no one has been able to duplicate to an American audience. Does his unique ability, long run, and consistently strong performances warrant a place on the walk of Fame?

Rhino: The last ECW champion, debuting as friends of HoF Edge and likely future HoFer Christian, having the best spear in the business, including the infamous spear on Lita. Is his run worthy of Hall of Fame credentials?

The Dudley Boys: The most decorated tag team in history, winning tag titles everywhere they went and being a staple of the WWE Tag Team renaissance, these guys are definitely going to be in the Hall of Fame...right?

Sabu: Outside of ECW he was never much, but within ECW he was the equivalent of a Sting or Undertaker, being part of some of the biggest angles in ECW history. Will his time at the top of the rebellious organization, infamous toughness, and daredevil style land him in the Hall of Fame among the other greats of his family?

If there is anyone else you think is worthy of discussion, go ahead and bring them up!

Honestly with Sabu trying to sue the WWE for injuries sustained during his time I have a hard time believing that he will ever make it now, 

I'd like to think Shane Douglas would have a shot,

Of the guys mentioned above, the Dudleys and RVD are absolutely nailed on for the HoF. As DMD says, Sabu has probably blown it (and as for his lawsuit, bearing in mind he spent less than a year in WWE and some of the stuff he did in the 20 years in wrestling other than in WWE, he's an idiot if he thinks he'll get any money from them).

Foley also needs to be mentioned, he's far more known for his time in ECW than WCW.

There are loads of guys who could be mentioned here (Sandman, Paul Heyman) but face it - ECW was little more than NXT is now back in the day.
