Former ECW personality Lou D’Angeli (aka Sign Guy Dudley and Lou E. Dangerously) recently took some time to take part in a two-part Q&A exclusively with PWMania.com. In part two D’Angeli gives his thoughts on WWE PG, if Hardcore Wrestling has a place in the world today, his regrets, comparing ECW to WWE and more. Here are some highlights:
The Unauthorized Story of ECW, “Barbed Wire City” documentary (www.barbedwirecity.com) has received very positive reviews from fans, former ECW staff, and wrestlers. We have witnessed firsthand and have been told personally that tears were shed during the viewing of the documentary.

Ten guys who would’ve been worked well in the original Extreme Championship Wrestling.
Without a doubt CM Punk would have been a staple of ECW television for many years had Extreme Championship Wrestling continued on. The idea of a Punk/RVD feud in 2001 would surely be a money maker for the company and would probably produce matches that we would all remember for years to come. Punk’s ability in the ring and ability to get himself over on the microphone makes him the perfect guy for Paul Heyman to push ECW forward.

Could Bret have been secretly in on the Montreal Screwjob? We set out to get theories of some of the industry’s most well-known personalities in conjunction with the release of “The Montreal Theory”, a 2-disc investigative shoot-style documentary that examines that very question from every angle possible, with a list of compelling thought-provoking reasoning, and a very educated panel of wrestling insiders and legends.
This week, we catch up with ECW original Blue Meanie, who was immediately intrigued by the news of the release of our DVD, and was quick to offer his own opinions on what happened that night in 1997!
