Hal Lublin is joined by producer Julian Burrell to talk about one of the most memorable failures that WWE ever attempted: The resurrection of the ECW brand and promotion.
In 2006, a year after a successful ECW “One Night Stand” PPV, WWE decided to bring back Extreme Championship Wrestling as their third brand. First they wanted it to be a web exclusive show that Shane McMahon would be in charge of. But they eventually got Sci-Fi Network to buy in and settled on ECW, the weekly TV show.
The Three Count:
Julian put over the eternal joy of Money Plane
Hal put over the Miz’s most memorable promo.
