Shane Douglas has made his name by being one of the last journeymen in the business, working for nearly every major wrestling promotion. His resume includes stints in the NWA, WCW, WWF, ECW, and TNA. He’s most known for his time in ECW, when he cut one of the most famous promos in wrestling’s history after winning the NWA World Heavyweight Title. Known only to Douglas, Paul Heyman and Tod Gordon, ECW was leaving the NWA, and in a way to get their promotion exposure, Douglas threw the NWA World Title on the mat and declared that the ECW World Title was the only one that was legitimate. This sent instant waves through the wrestling community, and made the names of both Douglas and ECW.

Douglas has now largely transitioned to being a promoter, notably with Extreme Rising.
