  Extreme Championship Wrestling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wrestlers such as Shane Douglas, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, The Sandman, Cactus Jack, Terry Funk, Sabu, Public Enemy and The Tazmaniac were seen as being too dangerous for the multi-million dollar companies and were given a chance in ECW.
ECW on TNN was cancelled in October 2000 (with the final episode airing on October 6, 2000) in favor of WWE RAW moving to the network.
ECW Living Dangerously was going to air on March 11, 2001, but because of financial trouble it was cancelled before March 11.

 The Alliance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ECW was brought in to help boost the presence of WCW.
The ECW faction was initially introduced to the storyline as a "wild card" in the equation, apparently holding an allegiance to neither the WWF nor WCW.
The combined group was originally known as "WCW/ECW" but the rights to ECW's assets (including the use of its name on-air by the WWF) were still being debated in bankruptcy court, so the name of the group was shortened to "The Alliance" shortly after ECW was added to the mix.

 DVD Verdict Review - The Rise And Fall Of ECW
ECW had the production values of a flea market infomercial, which made it an incredibly tacky and ugly show to watch…but this total lack of presentation allowed the promotion to concentrate one hundred percent of its energy on breaking backs, noses, tables, and chairs.
ECW often had no money to pay their wrestlers every week, and the lack of steady pay caused many of the top wrestlers to jump ship for other wrestling promotions (ones that actually pay them on time).
In a sense, ECW still lives on…but hearing the wrestlers speak of the glory days, the scary independent days, going weeks without paychecks, putting their bodies on the line for the sake of the sport they love, you really get the impression they were part of something special.

The feeling among many of the WWE wrestlers was that they've spent the better part of the last two years trying to recondition the fans to appreciate the small things and buy into a different, more sensible, manageable, logical style without the bigger stunt bumps and crazy highspots.
One wrestler who worked the Homecoming show noted that the crowd was "the hottest in the history of the building." The standout matches from Friday's show were said to be the Terry Funk vs. Shane Douglas vs. Sabu main event, Jerry Lynn vs. Justin Credible, and Kid Kash vs. Too Cold Scorpio.
