Path Of Destruction has a bit of everything.

 

However, for that "actual show" feel, Living Dangerously 99, Anarchy Rulz 99, Barely Legal and Cyberslam 96 all get the proverbial thumbs up.

Ignore the Hard Hits titles, they're just small (hour long) sampler compilations. While they have some classic matches on, you're better off getting the actual PPV to get it in context.

 

So, out of the ones I've seen, I recommend;

 

Extreme Warfare - compilation of ECW TV from ECW's 1995(ish) peak. Originally presented as two videos, both volumes compiled here. Amongst other things, contains some fantastic matches, including a tag match between Terry Funk/Sandman and Shane Douglas/Cactus Jack , two matches between TPE and The Gangstas (including the one where the ring collapses during the post-match celebration), a fantastic barb wire match between Cactus Jack and The Sandman, a fancam of Sabu vs. Chris Jericho (great fun watching the lone cameraman sprinting around the ring trying to keep up with the combatants), a Scaffold match between Tommy Dreamer and Brian Lee, a hot striptease Kimona Wannalaya (to make up for a long, boring, dreary catfight earlier on.. in general, I'm not into soft porn clogging up wrestling shows, but in this case you just have to respect the quality! :D )

 

Hardcore Heaven 2000 - I love this show, not a bum match on the card; a classic RVD/Lynn encounter, a truly brutal match as Tajiri goes mediaeval on Steve Corino, New Jack balcony dive#234b, a storming opener between Balls Mahoney and Masato Tanaka, the battle of the Impact Players, the... oh, just buy the damn thing! Go on!

 

Anarchy Rulz 99 - Truly incredible 3-way between Taz, Mike Awesome and Masato Tanaka (though mostly Awesome and Tanaka), a scary match between Sabu and Justin Credible, a technical opener between Lance Storm and Jerry Lynn which I'm personally not a fan of, though everyone else raves about it, and overall a well booked, solid example of what ECW is.

 

Cyberslam '96 - One of the best angles ever as Brian F'n Pillman debuts at the ECW arena and fantastic matches between Sabu and Scorpio and Cactus Jack and Shane Douglas. Hurt by poor video quality and lighting, and some clumsy edits (I'm actually quietly pleased that one such edit spared us most of the Buh Buh Ray/Mr. Hughes match, though annoyed Catus' "just attended a wedding" speech has also been cut.

 

Heatwave 98 - Sabu and RVD vs. Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki! Tanaka vs. Awesome! Candido vs. Storm! Yeah, baby!

 

One warning.. on DVDs that were released after about October 2000 (when ECW's bouncing cheques started really coming home to roost), they found they could no longer afford the licences for a lot of the entrance music, so horrible generic copyright-free music and the "This Is Extreme" theme music is dubbed on instead. On some shows, it's a minor irritation; on others (eg. November To Remember 2000) an utter pain. Of those mentioned above, only Extreme Warfare is affected (but DEFINITELY don't let that put you off that one, it's still a belter!)

I actueally think most ECW dvd's are worth the 11.99 on Play.com but my recommendation is heatwave '98 also then WrestlePlzooa 97

 

If you watch closely at the Taz Vs Bam Bam Match, Bam is actueally try to graps the ropes not tap when on the outside

 

And the bonus is at the end let it play on a bit and there is a extra match from November to Rember I cant rember which year but its on there

 

Any thing from 1997 is the best in my opinon the ECW invasion of the WWF is featured on many from 1997 2 or 3 dvds I think

 

On wrestleplooza 97 (Not availble on region 2) Jerry Lawler invades and on Hardcore Heaven 97 Dreamer Vs Jerry Lawler
