The WWE had two main competitors during the Attitude Era. The first was WCW, a more “southern style” promotion, with old-fashioned wrasslin’. And the other was ECW, which was freaking bananas. Steel chairs. Barbed wire. Thumbtacks. Tables. “Extreme” was an understatement, and Rob Van Dam’s signature Van Daminator was emblematic of all that ECW wanted to be: hard, technical, and brutal. Plus, it ended perfectly, with a steel-chair-cracking flush against an opponent’s skull.
