It is our first trip to ECW land with one of these Daily Features!
ECW was always considered a casualty throughout the Monday Night Wars. They always lost talent when WCW or WWE came calling. ECW just didn’t have the finances to match big money offers from either company.
And the WWE came calling for the Dudley Boyz. They were ECW Tag Team Champions. And they talked about taking the Titles to Vince McMahon and putting them on his desk.
Tommy Dreamer, who many considered to be the heart and soul of ECW, wasn’t going to let that happen. So he fought the Dudleyz without a partner. Or so he thought. Raven surprised Dreamer and the ECW faithful and returned. Raven had just left WCW. He DDT’d Bubba and won the Titles for Dreamer and himself. Of course, Tommy Dreamer and Raven were rivals during Raven’s first ECW run. So we immediately got the “odd couple” tag champs.
