Edge and Christian were one of the most exciting and unpredictable tag teams in WWE history. Now they host their own show that features all the offbeat shenanigans fans became familiar with during their time in the squared circle.
Extreme Championship Wrestling was reborn in 2006 with Paul Herman leading the way and ECW Superstars like Rob Van Dam, Kurt Angle, Big Show, The Sandman and Tommy Dreamer. ECW was back and ready to be a new breed unleashed.

The show came about as a deal WWE made with MTV in early 2000 which was to include: weekly live broadcast of Sunday Night Heat; a reality show contest of pro-wrestling where two winners earn a contract; a fictional narrative movie or TV-movie to star Stone Cold Steve Austin. MTV execs wanted Stone Cold Steve Austin to be the head trainer, but being a main event wrestler on WWE Raw and Smackdown! at the time would not allow him to be a head trainer (although he would some years later be head trainer/host in the rebooted version of Tough Enough for the USA network). The movie starring Stone Cold was developed and scripted as The Marine, but scheduling conflicts and shift in budget priorities did not allow the project to come to fruition. WWE later used the script The Marine to launch their movie studio company (WWE Films) and changed the lead to be John Cena. See more »
I just happened to flip past this one night towards the beginning of the series. I wasn't a wrestling fan before but I found this show to be very compelling. And after watching this I've actually tuned into some WWF shows. It makes me kind of wonder if it was just a marketing ploy to get us former non-fans hooked. If it was it worked on me!
