Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW) (formerly known as NWA: Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling and Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling) is a Western Canada-based professional wrestling promotion and a former member of the National Wrestling Alliance. By 2014 it was Canada's largest wrestling promotion. It was the focus of the 2010 documentary This Wrestling Life, and was used as the scene for the independent movie Kayfabe.

Many of Western Canada's brightest and best young talents have either started with ECCW, or used the promotion as a proving ground to build on their own skills and abilities.

Harry Smith (2006, 2014), Tyson Kidd, (2005, 2006), Natalya (2005, 2006), & Becky Lynch (2005-2006) spent time with ECCW before eventually signing on with the WWE, as did Tyler Breeze (as Mattias Wilde, 2009-2010) and Tenille Dashwood (Tenille Tayla, 2009-2011), with Natalya briefly holding the SuperGirls championship (now the ECCW Women's Championship) and Dashwood holding the belt on two occasions.

Former NXT Women's Champion and Raw Women's Champion Bayley appeared in ECCW in 2012 as "Davina Rose", losing to then-ECCW Women's Champion KC Spinelli. Tayla and Rose appeared against each other in a 6-Woman tag on the April 4th, 2017 edition of WWE Raw, with Tayla returning from a hiatus and Rose the current WWE Raw Women's Champion.

Kyle O'Reilly appeared in the 2010 edition of the CHIKARA Young Lions Cup before signing a contract with Ring of Honor, where he is a 3-time Tag Team Champion (2013, 2014 w/ Bobby Fish), and former ROH World Champion (December 2, 2016). He and Fish also held the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships in 2014 and 2015, and won the Super Jr. Tag Team Tournament in 2014. O'Reilly is a PWG Battle of Los Angeles Winner (2013), and former PWG World Champion (May 23, 2014). In 2016, Pro Wrestling Illustrated rated Kyle O'Reilly at #32 out of the top 500 singles wrestlers in the PWI 500.
