ECW Guilty as Charged 1999 is the only ECW PPV I ever watched live so it holds a special place in my heart. And what a show it is to as Taz finally gets his shot as ECW World Champion Shane Douglas, both Tajiri and Super Crazy make their American debuts, and a whole lot more. Unfortunately this is the WWE Network version so the music is going to be generic and terrible but hey can’t win them all. I haven’t watched this since it first aired, bootleg copies I had of it always had technical issues for some reason, so I’m excited to see how it holds up. Will it still be good or will it be like most ECW shows and have aged poorly? Let’s find out!
