I was watching the Savage/Warrior "retirement" match on disk last night, and it came to the ending where Elizabeth threw Sherri out of the ring, and the thought came to me, "Both of these women are dead now, it's depressing."

Now that I think about it,  I don't know that I ever saw one of New Jack's matches. I never saw ECW in its prime, and he doesn't seem to have been included in either of the ECW DVDs that I have.  In his "tribute" to New Jack, Paul Heyman says that they couldn't follow the usual WWE practice of showing highlights of a deceased wrestler's career because apparently so little of what he did was acceptable for broadcast.

He was a pretty disgusting human being and I wouldn't call what he did wrestling, but I'm still sad he's gone.

RIP New Jack  Geez, he wasn't that much older than I am.

ECW was known for a number of things. Unfortunately, one of the things it's best remembered for is "extreme wrestling". Lesser talented wrestlers were encouraged to cover up their inadeqencies by brawling with whatever weapons and objects happened to be available. This included steel chairs, tables, thumbtack, you name it. Blading was really popular too. 

Now, I think that at one point, New Jack was a popular tag team wrestler in another promotion. However, when he got to ECW I don't ever remember him actually wrestling a match. Instead, he would interrupt matches by bringing out a trash can full of items to attack the other wrestlers with. That was his thing. He would would then brutalize the other performers who would brutalize him in turn (for those of you who don't know, ECW had no rules in terms of interference and all matches were no disqualification). 

ECW had some really good wrestlers and a lot of quality talent, but New Jack was more of a side show.

From reading up on him, I find he seems to have started out in Dallas and North Georgia, before going to Smoky Mountain Wrestling and then ECW.  He doesn't seem to have ever worked for Vince.

I think there was talk of him doing a run in during the ECW One Night Stand, which is I believe the closest he ever came to working for Vince.

Probably they could have fit him in during the match at the end between Dudleys and Dreamer/Sandman.  That one felt like "Let's get as many people as possible some screen time."
