"ECW Collector's Pack is something you should pick up because not only does it have one of the greatest ppvs in the past three years, ECW One Night Stand, but you also get one of the greatest documentaries on the rise and fall of one of the most popular wrestling brands that unfortunately went out of business back in 2001. [Rumor has it though ECW will reform later this year in September]
I personally have both these DVDS that I bought over the past two years, but since it's harder to find the Rise and Fall of ECW on DVD nowadays, definately pick this up. Both DVDS are great to own...
ECW ONE NIGHT STAND
This took place on June 12th, 2005 and was ECW's first ever ppv since 2001. A lot of names reappeared that hadn't been seen on national TV in a long time as well as some five star matches took place.
Lance Storm vs. Chris Jericho: Great technical battle. Justin Credible smacks Jericho with a singapore cane, which causes Jericho to lose, as the Impact Players reunite.
Little Guido [Nunzio] vs. Tajiri vs. Super Crazy: Fast paced and INSANE moonsault off a balcony by Super Crazy onto the entire FBI
Rey Mysterio vs. Psichosis: Not as good as you might think, but some cool moves nonetheless such as Rey jumping off the top turnbuckle into Psichosis in the crowd!
Sabu vs. Rhino: Chairs, high flying moves and a great ending involving Sabu leg dropping Rhyno through a table!! Sabu wins with the help of Rob Van Dam and Bill Alphonso.
Chris Benoit vs. Eddie Guerrero [RIP]: Great technical battle by these two men. The last match on ppv they would have together.
Masato Tanaka vs. Mike Awesome: Great, great match. Both men use tables and chairs on each other. Awesome even powerbombed Tanaka over the tope rope through a table on the outside!!
The Dudley Boyz vs. Tommy Dreamer and The Sandman: What a war. So many weapons were used, even a cheese grater! Watch a VICIOUS street sign shot to the head by Bubba Ray onto Dreamer! Then watch Sandman give the Rolling Rock to Devon on top of a ladder. The ending has Tommy being powerbombed through a FLAMING table!! "OH MY GOD!" as Joey Styles would say...
At the end of the night Stone Cold Steve Austin makes his way to ringside and starts a wild brawl between the Raw and Smackdown superstars with the ECW wrestlers. The infamous JBL/Blue Meanie fight takes place in the brawl, see if you can see Meanie take a hard punch in the eye!
Extras include a clip on the "ECW Funeral" by Eric Bischoff
Clips hyping the returns of: Sabu, The Sandman, RVD, the Dudley Boyz, and Tommy Dreamer
Clips of ECW fans outside the ring talking about their ECW experiences
And one of the worst things you can actually hear as JBL was in the ppv as well during the WWE invasion of ECW storyline in which he rips into everything the ECW ppv held. DO NOT LISTEN TO IT [At least that is my advice]
THE RISE AND FALL OF ECW DOCUMENTARY:
This is a great 3 hour story of the rise of a little promotion held in a bingo hall in South Philadelphia, run by a man named Paul Heyman. In this documentary you will see interviews with: Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer, Taz, RVD, Rhyno, The Dudley Boyz, Al Snow, Stevie Richards, Nunzio, Chris Jericho, Dawn Marie, Kurt Angle, and even Vince McMahon.
Hear about several famous moments in ECW History such as:
The first ever triple threat match to take place in America when "The Night The Line Was Crossed" occured, what Heyman thinks of Eric Bischoff for coming into ECW and taking several top talent for WCW. Hear about the infamous crucifixion moment between the Sandman and Raven, as well as the time New Jack beat a wrestler within an inch of his life [Literally!]
Plus you will see great ECW footage such as: Flaming Tables Matches, Weapons Matches, Lucha Libre, plenty of table spots, some old Monday Night Raw footage back in the 90's when ECW first invaded, as well as a styrafoam head "snow storm" with Al Snow in the ring [No pun intended]
Extras include 7 different matches [in their entirety]
ECW Tag Team Champioships
2 out of 3 falls dog collar match
The Pitbulls vs. Raven and Stevie Richards [Champions]:
Wild brawl that had a lot of tables in it. Pitbull 2 gets piledriven through a table in the ring, then Stevie Richards gets suplexed through another table. Raven even had a pitbull on top of two tables and tried to drive him right through them, but one didn't break. The end involves Tommy Dreamer and the Dudley Boyz [Different Dudleys] interfering. 8/10 The Pitbulls win after a long ending.
Psichosis vs. Rey Msyterio:
Great 2 out of 3 falls match. The first fall is short, but the second and third get longer and longer. Highlights include some suicide dives over the top rope into the crowd by both men. Then Rey puts the chair over Psichosis' head and drives him into the ring posts, almost decapitating him! Psichosis even drives Mysterio through two tables!! 10/10 Psichosis wins and the crowd gives Mysterio a standing ovation!
ECW World Heavyweight Championship
Mikey Whipwreck vs. The Sandman [Champion]:
Funny promo by Steve Austin [Yes, that Steve Austin] before the match started and he rips into both men saying he will be the next champ after whoever wins. The match is short but some hard hitting moves such as Mikey getting thrown onto the ladder several times, his head took a lot of punishment. Watch Sandman slip as he tries to do a flip into the ring! 8/10 Mikey wins and many wrestlers celebrate with him!
ECW Television Championship
Taz [Champion] vs. Bam Bam Bigelow:
This was the match where both men crash through the ring floor to the ground! The crowd was surprisingly dead throughout this match, but there were some good weapon use. 8/10 Bam Bam wins after pulling Taz out from under the ring and pins him.
ECW Television Championship
Sabu vs. 2 Cold Scorpio [Champion]:
Best match in the extras. This was for the ECW Television title. 30 minute classic in which chairs, and technical wrestling are used. Sabu even does a forward summersault off the top rope and MISSES Scorpio in the crowd and crashes on top of a table!!! Listen to Joey Styles after that spot, it's hysterical what he says 11/10 The match ends in a draw and the ECW TV title stays with the champion.
Raven vs. Tommy Dreamer;
This match went all throughout the crowd. Tables were broken by both men as they slammed each other into them behind the crowd. Alcohol was also used as Tommy spits a drink right in Raven's face. Some interference by several people, but Tommy finally pins Raven in their famous feud. The post match action has an invasion by Sabu, RVD, Bill Alfonso, and of all people, Jerry The King Lawler! The entire ECW locker room empties to fight the invaders, and only Taz is able to clear the ring after everyone else is wiped out! 9/10
ECW Television Championship
Rob Van Dam [Champion] vs. Jerry Lynn:
Second best match on the DVD. If you have RVD's DVD "One Of A Kind" you know what Jerry Lynn and RVD can do in the ring, and this is no different! Great technical wrestling and high flying moves. RVD even does a sunset flip out of the ring and powerbombs Jerry Lynn through a table! 9.5/10 RVD wins but both men shake hands after the match.
These are the two disks that you are 100% guaranteed to get if you buy this collector's set. I just wish the newest DVD, "Bloodsport" was included because that would have been perfect. Oh well, this pack is still highly recommended..."
Relive EXTREME One Last Time
D.P. | California | 08/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is basically WWE re-releasing their first two ECW projects together as one in hype of ECW on Sci-Fi. I'll be honest & say I didn't buy the collector pack since I had already bought the two DVD sets when they came out but here's everything.
ONE NIGHT STAND
ECW's reunion show that featuring all the different elements of what made ECW so popular along with seeing ECW old faces and some "anti-ECW" RAW & SmackDown stars including Kurt Angle, J.B.L. and the anti-christ of ECW himself...Eric Bischoff. Matches include Lance Storm's retirement match against the man he started his career with..."Lionheart" Chris Jericho, Mysterio vs. Psichosis in the extreme lucha libre match, Guido vs. Crazy vs. Tajiri in the ECW original match...the three way dance, Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit in a pure wrestling match. Dudley Boyz vs. Dreamer & Sandman, Sabu vs. Rhyno, and the one match everyone was talking about after the show...Masato Tanaka vs. Mike Awesome...round out the matches here. Throughout the night, you'll see ECW highlights along with special appearences by the bWo; Bill Alfonzo & RVD; Kid Kash; Balls & Axl; Al Snow & Head; the biggest gathering of F.B.I. members in ECW history; Mikey Whipwreck & the Sinister Minister; Spike Dudley; Justin Credible; Jason; Francine; Beulah; Pitbull #2; Danny Doring & Roadkill; Stone Cold Steve Austin; and Paul Heyman himself.

There's also a "JBL alternative commentary" feature in which JBL was wired throughout the event & you just hear the comments from him & those around him.
RISE OF FALL OF ECW
This was the DVD that started the rebirth of ECW as it was selling out everywhere & became the second highest selling DVD in WWE history (they stopped getting the sales figures when they were 1,000 sales away from WrestleMania XX). The documentry tells the story of ECW from Eastern Championship Wrestling becoming EXTREME; everything leading up to PPV; the audience influence; the impact it had on wrestling in the U.S. (pure wrestling & lucha libre); the story of the first PPV; the TNN deal and all the problems leading up to the downfall of ECW. You had profiles on old ECW alumni like Dreamer, Sandman, Taz, Sabu, and others along with personal stories involing their characters. Plus never before seen footage such as Heyman firing Sabu & the Sandman crucifixion. Additional commentary by former ECW producer Rob Buffone, WCW President Eric Bischoff, and WWE owner Vince McMahon add to this presentation.
There is also a bonus disc full of six ECW matches including the the famous Raven/Richards vs. Pitbulls Dog Collar/2 Out Of 3 Falls Match which had more cameos and plot twist than the average episode of RAW; a 2 out of 3 falls extreme lucha libre match with Mysterio vs. Psichosis, 2 Cold Scorpio vs. Sabu, Mikey Whipwreck's title win against the Sandman in a ladder match with a cameo appearence from Steve Austin. Tommy Dreamer & Coach do alternative commentry on the final Dreamer vs. Raven match and the WWE invasion afterwards lead by Jerry Lawler, Taz vs. Bam Bam Bigelow's famous match from Living Dangerously is on here along with alternative commentry from Taz & Michael Cole, and the famous RVD vs. Jerry Lynn rematch from Hardcore Heaven '99 is on here with commentary from RVD & Michael Cole. Personal stories from Taz, Stevie Richards & Chris Jericho round out disc two. There are also hidden extras such as the Taz/Bigelow history, RVD's scar from his match with Lynn, and Mickey Whipwreck training with the Public Enemy, and an old ECW "Pulp Fiction" promo montage they would do at the end of their shows each week.
Basically, you get two of the greatest WWE DVD releases along together for the great bargain price. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you don't already have both of these but if you do, go ahead & skip it because there's nothing new."
