I posted this just now and want everyone's feedback.

Here's my thoughts.

In the grand scope of professional wrestling, this wasn't a big deal. ECW lasted about a decade, I don't count the reincarnations, reboots and restarts.

However, conversely, I think it was a big deal in terms of being a well-placed nail in the coffin to the NWA.

One could argue that the NWA was dead a few years before this and made some resurgences later on I guess but I think in terms of history this is pretty much the death of the NWA to me as a fan.

When I first saw this around 1996 i thought it was bad ass, now I still think it's cool but not as ground breaking as I thought.
