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.
