In the mid-1990s, ECW promoter Paul Heyman was looking to replace some of his wrestlers who began working for WCW. Heyman contacted the popular luchador, Konnan El Barbaro, asking for recommendations of luchadores who could make an impact with wrestling fans, even if they would not be well-known at first. Rey Mysterio, Psicosis, Juventud Guerrera, Konnan, and Super Crazy, soon made their way to ECW and for the first time, fans and viewers of the English-language wrestling program got an up close look at the style, characters, and high-flying acrobatics of lucha libre.
