Extreme Championship Wrestling makes its first appearance on the Nintendo 64 with ECW: Hardcore Revolution. Pick from 40 ECW stars like Rob Van Dam, Sabu, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, and Mike Awesome or create a digital persona to duke it out in the squared circle. You can then jump into the ring in one of 20 different match types: Three Way Dance, Death Match, Tornado, Lumberjack, Battle Royal, and others. If your friends want to see who is the hardest of the hardcore, up to four people can battle at once in a multiplayer game. The ECW has earned a reputation for its hardcore matches, in which combatants battle each other with baseball bats and slams through multiple tables. Thankfully, all of the action of the ECW has made it onto the Nintendo 64 without the potential for injury.
Over the course of its five year existence, Extreme Championship Wrestling has developed an intense following with an innovative style of hardcore wrestling action, compelling storylines and a take no prisoners attitude. A talent exchange agreement with the most extreme international wrestling organizations, including those in Mexico and Japan, have given ECW an international flavor and worldwide respect unmatched by any other wrestling organization.
ECW produced its first of many successful pay-per-view broadcasts in 1997, the classic "Barely Legal." And in August of 1999, marking the 5th Anniversary of Shane Douglas' famous stand, ECW made its national cable debut on TNN, the nation's second
largest cable network.
