"For example, a finish in most every match. Simple thought. A winner and a loser. And a story with it that makes sense."
This sentence states perfectly everything that was right about the REAL ECW (and World Class and Mid-South in the 80's), and everything that is so wrong in modern day WWE, and too an infinitely greater degree, TNA. What also made ECW great was that it never forgot that it was always essentially an indy promotion, ala always developing new stars, and giving fans great storylines with a real payoff at the end. Heyman was a genious/visionary, and the biz is tremendously worse off without him.
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who don't believe, no explanation will do.
