Shooters Radio: ECW Barely Legal deep dive with The Blue Meanie

Two years ago, we recorded an ECW Barely Legal anniversary show with a special guest – The Blue Meanie!

This week, our WrestleMania XV deep dive was postponed, so we re-uploaded this classic episode full of fantastic stories and anecdotes. We cover the entire lead up to the very first ECW pay-per-view, Barely Legal, on April 13, 1997.

We cover the ECW chants that interrupted the WWF’s King of the Ring event in 1995 at the Spectrum, ECW’s presence at Mind Games 1996 – WWF’s September pay-per-view at the CoreStates Center – the RAW invasion in February 1997 and the weeks ahead, the night before and night of the pay-per-view, and more.

This is a must-listen for any ECW fan. Hell, it’s a must-listen for any wrestling fan! The year of 1997 was a fantastic year for professional wrestling, and this just scratches the surface. Press play wherever you get your podcasts!

The card:

  • ECW World Tag Team Championship: The Eliminators vs. The Dudley Boyz (c)
  • Rob Van Dam vs. Lance Storm
  • Six-Man Tag: The Great Sasuke/Gran Hamada/Masato Yakushiji vs. bWo Japan (Taka Michinok/Terry Boy/Dick Togo)
  • ECW World Television Championship: Shane Douglas (c) vs. Pitbull #2
  • Taz vs. Sabu
