Extremely Crazy Wrestling Fans
"Extremely Crazy Wrestling Fans: The Documentary DVD" exposes wrestling fans as anti-establishment who have a certain swagger, a cocky attitude and a thirst to be entertained beyond human limits. From wrestling, to the blood and barbed wire, it is all captured on this documentary. It's more than a sport; it's more than a show, being an "Extreme Fan" is a lifestyle.
This DVD features footage of famous pro wrestlers such as "The Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal Sabu", "The Franchise Shane Douglas", "The Hardcore Legend Terry Funk", "The Beer Drinking, Cane Swinging, Hardcore Icon The Sandman", "The Original Gangsta New Jack", "The Chair Swingin' Freak Balls Mahoney", "Cactus Jack Mick Foley", "No Gimmicks Needed Chris Candido", Bill Alfonso and many more.
On occassion, you will hear people discribe Philadelphia wrestling fans (specifically fans of ECW) as the most hardcore fans in the World. Paul Heyman himself admits that the fans helped MAKE Extreme Championship Wrestling what it was. Nobody doubts that, but the producers set out to prove it anyway.
Hours before Shane Douglas and his band of Extreme alumni set out to put on a nostalgia show entitled "Hardcore Homecoming" on June 10, 2005, the ECWF crew hit the streets to do a series of shoot interviews in and around the rabid tailgate party outside of the legendary ECW arena. The blood-thirsty fans did not disappoint as they reminisced about what ECW meant to them and discussed such topics as; How long they have been a wrestling fan, What their wifes or girlfriends think of wrestling, their favorite ECW wrestler, memories of ECW's glorious past, and much much more.
Obviously due to WWE owning ECW footage, video of ECW wrestlers performing for other promotions was used thoughout the documentary. Clips from the Hardcore Homecoming DVD was prominantly featured as well as footage from a Pennsylvania-based independent promotion called International Wrestling Cartel. Bonus features on the DVD included complete matches between Shane Douglas & Raven, and New Jack & Balls Mahoney -- from the IWC tape library.
