Tommy Dreamer: They Sold Three Million ECW Figures And We Got Two Boxes And $200 As Compensation

In 1999, ECW partnered with Original San Francisco Toymakers for a line of ECW figures. 

The original series included Rob Van Dam, Shane Douglas, Sabu, and more along with a line of accessories. Tommy Dreamer was part of series 2 and according to him, he didn't receive much compensation despite the line selling well.

"Kevin Sullivan introduced us to [Robby Kanoff] and he wanted to put the deal together. When I watched the documentary, I remember being so mad, I was like, 'They sold three million action figures.' For the ECW wrestlers, we received two boxes and $200 [as compensation]. If you were in the company, you got the two boxes," Dreamer told Brian Myers in a Figs 4 Friends interview

Dreamer is referring to the Toys That Made Us documentary on professional wrestling, which is currently available on Netflix. 

The partnership between OSFT and ECW lasted through six series with Dreamer getting two separate action figures.
