BARELY LEGAL REVISITED: REMEMBERING THE ECW BARELY LEGAL PPV 20 YEARS LATER POSTED ON April 14 2017 Thursday April 13th marks the 20th anniversary of the inaugural ECW PPV Barely Legal back in 1997. It was a watershed moment for the company; the success of which would make or break it. They had to struggle to get on PPV after the outrage against ultimate fighting on PPV and it was fan demand that brought providers on board to carry it on their systems.
The PPV was headlined by Raven "the badass heel punk" as characterized by ECW owner Paul Heyman against the erstwhile Terry Funk, the oldtimer who wasn't sure he could do it anymore; this only after beating The Sandman and Stevie Richards in a 3 way dance to decide who would challenge for Raven's championship.
WWE.com has added a new collection commemorating the anniversary, called "ECW Barely Legal Revisited." You can check out the collection on the WWE Network HERE. Check out some images from the lead-up and event below as well!
