Sunday, August 9th, 1997 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, ECW Arena – A Barbed Wire match for the Extreme Championship Wrestling World Heavyweight Championship where champion Terry Funk defended the title against challenger Sabu, with his manager Bill Alfonso.
To be dead honest, after watching this match (for the second time that I can recall), I’m not fan of the original ECW, or at least matches like this. The reason, as I will state later as well, but matches like this will shorten a man’s career, and as well as a man’s life. This match was hard for me to watch the whole thing. With both men being wrapped in barbed wire at the end, I almost stopped the DVD and threw away my notes. But I didn’t, because I wanted to write this flashback for you guys and give ya’ll my opinion about this match! So here it is!
