Oct 23, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck


He was there for it all and he had the best seat in the house. ECW Senior Official John Finegan was employed by ECW even before Paul Heyman, back when it was still Eastern Championship Wrestling, he would be there until the very end and would even be there for ECW resurrection years later.

For the first time ever, hear never before told stories, and new perspectives from one of the longest tenured members of the ECW roster.

What happened when Taz and Bam Bam Bigelow went thru the ring? What was the atmosphere like when Sandman was crucified by Raven and Kurt Angle walked out of ECW? How did he handle the pressure of ECW’s first ever Pay-Per-View running out of time? There are so many topics to cover and never before told stories that can all be heard on Extreme Thoughts behind the Stripes for FREE!

Our first episode is a discussion of the One Night Stand event from 2005, which many people consider the greatest ECW event of all time. Finegan discusses his interactions with Vince McMahon, and whether or not he thinks Vince was a genuine fan of ECW. Who really wrote and booked the talent for One Night Stand? Was One Night Stand as authentic as Hardcore Homecoming which took place the night before? What match did he feel “went too far?” All of this and so much more can be found in the very first episode!

Episodes will be available on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month and the podcast can be found on all of your favorite podcast platforms including iTunes and Google Play. For more information or to submit topics and questions head to
