    Re: Random Wrestling Talk

    I was never a huge ECW fan back in the day (still not tbh), but was watching some old ECW videos on YouTube last night and had a question about their tag matches.

    Was it ever explained why some matches followed tag rules (one man in the ring and the other on the apron) and yet the rest of the match had no rules? I was watching one match that had a table set up in the corner being used as a weapon, and yet partners were still standing on the apron like nice boys because they weren't the "legal man". If there are no DQs, why would you ever bother waiting patiently on the apron for a tag?!

    My understanding is that they'd occasionally write it off as "sportsmanship", but then sometimes you had heels abiding by the rules as well, which doesn't really make sense. Was it ever explained why, or was it just one of those things where they didn't have an excuse and everyone just went along with it anyway because tag wrestling is awesome?

    That's just inherently the problem with any "No rules" promotion. I know that in the past, The Dudley Boyz have claimed that they only learned how to properly work tag matches after joining the WWE.

    If you want a kayfabe explanation for why tag matches would start traditionally in ECW, you could say it was an unofficial deal made between both teams. They'd follow tag rules, allowing for one member of each team to always be resting and aware of what's going on, but the moment one illegal man comes into the ring, the deal's off and you're forced to work the rest of the match brawling. I suppose to ECW's credit, their more wild teams, like The Gangstas just immediately jumped into the ring to start up a garbage brawl. It makes less sense for a team like them to make those unofficial deals than the more traditional tag teams.

    This sort of style is what caused me to sour on The Young Bucks. They'd work these really good traditional tag matches, but at the half way point all hell would break loose, ruining the story they had created prior to the hot tag.

    I really hate that AJ's move is called Pele Kick and Finn's is called Overhead Kick.



    This does look more like how Balor does it and this is a literal Pele Kick.
