    Just in case I can't get to a laptop before the poll closes, I want to state for the record that my vote is for 50. Hopefully that counts just in case I can't throw up a vote in the poll... There's no way I'm ever venturing off the mobile skin on my phone again.

    Since 50 is leading the poll I've been hard at work on creating a big old list.

    Think I've settled on my 50. Now it's just a matter of organizing those last 30 or so spots.

    Early & latter day ECW are probably underrepresented on my list.

    Several wrestlers will be on my list twice. Lance Storm, who I'm not even that big a fan of, came the closest to being on my list three times.

    I'm struggling. Greatest and favourites. I feel I am going to do the former a disservice by leaning towards going with the latter, especially in terms of placement on my list.

    This is why I shy away from lists.

    But fuck it it's my list and if I wanna put Big Sal Graziano and Oz (the TWA student, not Nash) on there then I'm gonna put Big Sal Graziano and Oz (the TWA student , not Nash) on there!

    But, yeah, HAVE to do this one. I may not document it here in the same fashion as others, but my ECW VHS, book, documentaries and shoot interview collection was pretty vast before VHS stopped being a thing, so if ever there was a list I should try my hand at it's this one.

    It's actually a shame bWo aren't eligible, but I guess Stevie and Meanie on their own will have to do.

    I just realized something... With the "no stables" rule, how is everyone else handling the Dudleys? Previously I just found it easier to group them all together and simply rank them very high. This left me open spaces to throw around more love, but realizing now that this maybe won't be allowed... I'm trying to think of how to break the Dudleys out: Bubba, Big Dick, Spike, D-Von, etc. Any recommendations?

    Buh Buh and D-Von
    Spike

    Two votes.

    I don't see any of the others being even remotely close to being top fifty worthy; outside of the BigDickSault the rest of the Dudleys provided little to qualify them for a look in (IMO).

    This. I'm counting any vote for "The Dudley Boyz" as Bubba Ray & D'Von.

    Just received my first full list of 50.

    3 BWO members made my list.

    Big Sal & Oz? And people say I have odd tastes

    I'm way too bored at work and love lists way too much.

    Don't worry, though, odd is the new normal.

    BSG and O to the Z for the win, bro.

    And just out of courtesy, the true heart and soul of ECW fandom here @Fezz.

    Would love to see his write-ups as we go through the list.

    I had the same thought at first as well - but after thinking about it for awhile it really doesn't make sense for someone who sends in a list of 25 , for their #1 to be worth just as much as someone who sends in 50 and so on and so forth. I did it the same way in a draft and I believe it skewed the results.

    Anyways , I'm working on getting to 50 now - I'm up for 46 solid and am searching for names to put in the bottom of the list - because there are two guys who I simply cannot vote for. Not Sabu or RVD either.

    Remember that you can (and in some cases probably even should) list folks multiple times... for instance, the Gangstas AND New Jack. Or Benoit and Malenko as individuals and then also as the Triple Threat tag team. Et cetera, bro.

    You could always throw "The Giant" Paul Lauria in at #50. I kind of hope somebody does.

    I made it to #50 , found a few that I forgot about or skimmed over.

    It's funny because you just listed the two guys who I refuse to vote for - New Jack and Benoit. Although I did put The Gangsta's on there because I'm a hypocrite.

    The Extreme Poet needs to be a part of this in some way. The dude named his fucking cat, "Sabu".

    I was thinking about this as well. What are everybody's thoughts on this?

    Right now it's looking like 50 is going to win in a landslide. Hell, I've already received three 50 wrestler ballots and will probably finish my own up tonight to make #4.

    I was just thinking about Fezz the other day as well. This countdown needs him. I just sent him a PM. Hopefully he participates.

    Based on the one Paul Lauria match I've seen (vs. Mikey Whipwreck) he actually wasn't that bad.

    Fun Fact: I thought "Giant Paul" was Big Show for a little while See, they had RF Video tape listings in the Apter Mags. A "Giant Paul" vs. Mikey Whipwreck match was listed. Somehow I knew WCW's The Giant was named Paul Wight in real life. So I put 2 & 2 together and came up with 5. Yep, I just assumed Giant Paul was a pre-WCW Giant for at least a few weeks. Probably a few months.

    Paul Lauria really cracked me up on rewatch. Crash Holly kind of ripped his gimmick off, now that I think about it. He was sort of the prototype that Paul E. would later use for Guido and Tony Mamaluke too.

    After much tinkering my list is finally complete. That brings us up to 5. Found a few discrepancies in other lists. One person corrected their mistake. The other is gonna run with a 47 person ballot. Will start the long and painful process of adding up the early scores later today.

    Don't forget about those supplemental lists! I've only received one so far. Will finish my own in a few minutes. It won't take too long. I just need to come up with a #10 person. ECW managers mostly sucked. Fact.

    Tentative deadline is April 25th.

    Found another Greatest ECW Wrestlers list. Will refrain from commenting.

    What's up with the lack of the Gangstas on these other lists? Plus 2 Cold gets the shaft once again.
