If you're not watching ECW, I ask you to make sure you start. This is the place we are seeing the next John Cena, Triple H, and Jeff Hardy.
Let's list off some of the wrestlers who have come from ECW.
CM Punk, Jack Swagger, Evan Bourne, and Kofi Kingston.
There are even more that I didn't get to, I know. However, these 4 men seem to be the most successful.
CM Punk won the ECW Title on ECW before going to RAW where he cashed in Money in the Bank on Edge and won his first World Title in the World Heavyweight Championship. He then won MITB again this past year and cashed it in on Jeff Hardy, shame on him. However, he is a 2 time World Champion, 1 time tag team and IC Champion. He is the fastest triple crown winner in WWE history.
Jack Swagger won the ECW Title in his first few months on the show, so you know he has proven himself. He was just drafted to RAW, so there is no telling what else he is capable of in the future.
Kofi Kingston is a big time player too. He is a former Tag Team and IC Champion. He is the current US Champion too. He is beating people who are bigger and/or stronger than him and will be a staple in the future of the WWE. One of the best young talents the WWE has ever had is Kingston.
Then we have Evan "Air" Bourne. You don't get that nickname from riding planes guys and gals. You get it from being one of the best highflyers in the WWE. He even went toe to toe with the best high-flyer in the business, Rey Mysterio. I personally love this guy. He could be the next Mysterio.
While Bourne has never won a title in the WWE, he can really give us great matches. Now that he has moved to RAW, I can see him getting in the US Title hunt quickly and possibly win it before to long.
In ECW's time, it has resurrected WWE careers too. People such as Mark Henry, John Morrison, The Miz, Shelton Benjamin, and of course Christian.
All of these men by the way have been champions once or after they went to ECW too.
Quite frankly, without ECW some of these men would be gone from the WWE. But because they went to ECW, they are now big time performers in the WWE.
See, ECW is not only a place for new superstars, but it is a place for those who need to show that they are for real and are misused on other shows.
While we still see the people like that come in, you have to think seeing new superstars come into the WWE is also something cool to see too.
People such as the newly formed Hart Dynasty- Tyson Kidd, DH Smith, and Natalya are big time players in the WWE too. What is freaky is that all three went to the Hart Dungeon. If you are not familiar with the place, it is the same place that taught Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Dynamite Kidd, and British Bulldog. So all three learned from the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.
They will be tag champs before to long, and I see Natalya winning the Women's Title before to long. All three were recently drafted to SmackDown, so it could happen.
The new superstars will keep coming in. We need to realize that out future stars are coming from ECW. So if your not watching, you need to start soon.
Next week ECW has a special day and start time. Thursday at 7/6c instead of the usual Tuesday at 10/9c. So make sure to watch. The show is only coming on at that day and time next week, but afterward it will go back to Tuesday at 10/9c. It is only seen on Sci Fi.
I want to hear from you, the Toywiz readers and customers. Who is the best to come from ECW, and who do you think will be the next big star in the WWE from there?
