    There are 15 names in the field this year, that had an impact in ECW, and as always, it's my goal to see them do well, and maybe push a potential winner...Running down the bracket, these are the wrestlers:

    • Chris Benoit
    • Mick Foley
    • Mike Awesome
    • Rob Van Dam
    • Terry Funk
    • Stevie Richards
    • Shane Douglas
    • Bam Bam Bigelow
    • Rey Mysterio
    • Raven
    • Jerry Lynn
    • Eddie Guerrero
    • Chris Jericho
    • Tazz
    • Buh-Buh Ray Dudley

    Foley and Jericho are the 2 best bets to win the whole shebang, but there's potential to pull of some upsets along the way. Funk and Richards face each other in the first round, as do Bam Bam and Mysterio, so even though only one man can win each match, the opportunity is still there to throw out some knowledge and gain momentum for the next round.

    Who's with me!?

    REAL ECW, dude...That's why I didn't include Big Show, CM Punk, Mark Henry, Matt Hardy, Christian, William Regal, or Miz.

    Except even the people who despised the real ECW, thought the WWE version was a fraud and a disgrace.

    Have you ever seen the Shane Douglas v Terry Funk v Sabu Barbwire Rope match?

    Was that the one where Sabu tore his pectoral and then used duct tape to fix it up? Kindergarten stuff.

    Yes. They also had a very good sequel to that at Hardcore Homecoming.

    And I doubt Benjamin or Kofi have been anywhere near a match as brutal.

    Racist? Mysterio and Guerrero are on my list for this group.

    Wrong. The match where he tore the hell out of his pectoral was against Terry Funk in a No Rope Barbed Wire Match at Born to Be Wired.

    Come on Mr. ECW Historian ;)

    I think I can agree with sending Foley to the top.

    We're down to just FIVE!

    • Mick Foley
    • Rob Van Dam
    • Terry Funk
    • Rey Mysterio
    • Chris Jericho

    They face off against Lex Luger, Lou Thesz, Jeff Hardy, Ricky Steamboat, and Ted DiBiase, respectively. While these are all solid match-ups, they are all in-fact winnable. Come out and support the ECW name!

    The Micker should win with ease, RVD is dead, Funker should win in a walk, Rey should win in a close one but you never know, Jericho has had this matchup in a tournament here at least once before and he won by a large margin if I remember correctly.

    Wouldn't the "real" ECW be Eastern Championship Wrestling?

    Oh yeah, I keep forgetting that people classify Terry Funk as an ECW guy.

    Agreed. Windham was great to watch, but not on the same level as Raven.

    If there were guys like Snuka in this tournament, then I'd add that.

    RVD is not dead. I'll admit that's the toughest match-up of the five, but it's doable. RVD has a solid list of accomplishments, and was talented in the ring.

    I am fully aware that he is, in reality, an NWA guy, but without Funk, ECW would have never gotten off the floor the way it did. He's an honorary ECW guy in the same vein as Foley.

    RVD going over Thesz would be like Ambrose going over Austin. Thesz was an Austin level wrestler, where RVD was pretty much on an Ambrose level... save for the one brief run as WWE champ during the summer, which for me would probably be comparable to Ambrose getting a run against Lesner at Wrestlemania.

    Yes RVD has a solid list of accomplishments and was talented... but his resume and skill pale in comparison to Lou Thesz. It'd be an embarrassment if RVD won that match... and that's taking nothing away from RVD saying so.

    As for the rest. Foley and Funk should win easily and both deserve to. Steamboat/Mysterio and DiBiase/Jericho are pretty close. I would (and will) argue that Steamboat and DiBiase both deserve the wins, but considering there a generation before most of this board started watching, and Jericho and Mysterio are guys that the majority of this board grew up with, I would be surprised if both Rey and Y2J didn't move on.

    You should get 4 out of 5 moving on to the 3rd round, and all 4 will be guys who just have ECW as a point on their resume, and not the main point or bulk of their resumes... which is probably exactly how it should be.

    Gene Kiniski lost to Scott Hall, and Big Daddy lost to Jeff Hardy. You could throw logic out the window. Jeff has a good shot at beating Funk, and I think RVD also has a chance to beat Thesz.
