5 WWE Superstars who would have joined ECW if it still existed
When pro wrestling fans fondly recall the 1990s, most of their memories revolve around the Monday Night War that was waged between WWE and WCW. It dominated the wrestling world for most of that decade, but there was a third brand that should not be forgotten.
While Vince McMahon and Ted Turner battled for ratings supremacy, Paul Heyman's ECW was busy changing the landscape of professional wrestling. From the violent hardcore matches to the Superstars that would become household names, it was the perfect storm and it will never be replicated.
However, If it could be replicated though or if ECW had survived beyond 2001, there would likely be a number of today's WWE Superstars itching at the chance to compete inside the hallowed ECW arena. Who on today's roster would have fit in with ECW's mantra best?
#5 Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens is one of WWE's most unconventional Superstars. The Prizefighter doesn't fit the mould of what you would typically expect a professional wrestler to look like. That coupled with his incredible in ring ability is what has made him so successful.
What's more important is what KO does look like rather than what he doesn't, and that is a legitimate bad ass. If you found yourself caught in a bar fight and Owens was frequenting the establishment you'd be a fool not to hope that the former Universal Champion was on your side.
All of that adds up to Kevin Owens being a perfect fit for the company that was ECW — a bonafide ass kicker with an amazing amount of talent. Plus considering his extended time on the independent scene, it's almost certain that Owens would have ended up in ECW had it continued to exist.
