This match epitomize ECW at its very best with an endless supply of Money and production facilities, ECW Originals (RVD, Sabu, The Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, Balls Mahoney), T&A (Francine, Trinity, Kelly Kelly) and with heavy-hitters like "The Extreme Giant" Big Show and "The Wrestling Machine" Kurt Angle on board. ECW had its original Sex & Violence singular flavour.
ECW was still EXTREME until Paul Heyman (head script & former ECW owner) left by the end of 2006.
When Paul Heyman was forced out at December to Dismember 2006. McMahon decided to put the ill-fitted Bobby Lashley as ECW World Champion it soon became pure bullcrap!!
Vince McMahon decided to destroy it with crap like The New Breed and putting himself, John Morrison, CM Punk, Chavo Guerrero as ECW champion. All ill-fitted and not extreme unworthy champions. ECW became a flavourless C-show and training ground for WWE superstars...
