The history of Ted Gordon's Eastern Championship Wrestling is explored in this documentary tracing the organization's growth from the dingy bingo halls of south Philadelphia to their later status as serious competitors of the WWE and WCW wrestling franchises. Underdogs from the very beginning, Gordon's crew of unruly misfits would fight their way into the spotlight and have lasting impact on the sport of wrestling. From firsthand accounts of historical ECW matches by Shane Douglas, Raven, and The Sandman to Terry Funk's unprecedented snubbing of Vince McMahon and the WWE, this video tells the remarkable story of the rise of ECW as only the people who were there to witness it and partake in the historical action can.
