The interview mostly centres about Marcotti’s love of ECW back in the nineties, as he was based in Philadelphia at the time.
Topics covered include:
- Being in the crowd at the ECW Arena, and his thoughts on the crowd and the building
- His thoughts on Paul Heyman
- Being live at the first ECW One Night Stand PPV in New York
- His favourite angles/wrestlers/matches from the ECW glory days
- Which wrestler he ran into in a bathroom, and who remembered him a year later
- His friendship with Shane McMahon, and their conversations regarding ECW
- His thoughts on The Briscoe Brothers
- Thoughts on CZW
- Which footballers would make good wrestlers
All that, plus news on a potential giveaway. Feel free to follow me on twitter @martinhines to leave any thoughts/ideas/admiration for the show, and I’ll leave you with a couple of videos referenced in the interview. Firstly, maverick and all around lunatic New Jack’s death-defying fall with Vic Grimes.
And some highlights from one of my favourite matches of all time, Mike Awesome v Masato Tanaka at ECW One Night Stand 2005.
