ECW PPV Events History

ECW PPV Events

From its humble beginnings as Eastern Championship Wrestling, Paul Heyman turned this small Philadelphia wrestling promotion into a global cult. 1997 ECW, now know as Extreme Championship Wrestling took its popular product into the PPV market. With cross over promotion from WWE, Barely Legal 1997 was a success. Following the success ECW held several PPV’s a year. The final one took place in 2001 at Guilty As Charged. The company folded for bankruptcy shortly after the event. WWE held three ECW PPV’s during its reincarnation of the promotion.
