Apart from serving the small but vocal niche of fans that love hardcore wrestling after ECW died I honestly don't understand how CZW is as successful as it is. Then again I'm not a fan of death matches or hardcore for the sake of hardcore. I can understand a long, personal rivalry ending in a no DQ match or a hell in a cell but when you start building multi storie cages and rigging them with explosives and sheets of glass you are simply either trying to kill your wrestlers or trying too much. CZW seems more to me like ECW drunken little brother trying to prove that it can be just as cool as its big brother by taking things to new extremes. The company is somehow staying afloat and going. Something I just cannot understand. Why is it that a company that seems focused on shortening their wrestlers careers (I know that they do normal wrestling as well but when you think CZW you think this bat shit stupid stuff). What kind of purpose does it fill on the independent scene other than being "that place you go for "hardcore"? And how can it stay so alive as it is while seemingly being a niche promotion?
