Comprehensive edits analysis
A chronic sockpuppeteer who primarily attacks articles on professional wrestling, especially R.D. Reynolds andWrestlecrap. Usernames frequently impersonate or attack legitimate user GaryColemanFan. Other usernames may be variations on the original name, such as User:XPW500. His other target article is that of the breakfast cereal, Fruity Pebbles. Active since 2006 and blocked since 2007, ECW500 has become active of late and is less than subtle about his return with such usernames as User:GaryColmanFan2 Electric Boogaloo. Vandal has announced that he is "reformed", yet continues to add spam to articles, and harass other wikipedia editors.

Once blocked, user will amuse himself by soapboxing/grandstanding on his talk page and abusing the Helpme and Unblock templates. He will frequently accuse other users of being ECW500 socks and request a checkuser against ECW500 to "prove his innocence". He often uses "good hand" accounts while committing vandalism with other accounts, and frequently shows interest in old ECW500 socks.
