1. AHTU def. Black Panther. AHTU totally dominated Panther who showed a lot of guts getting into the ring with AHTU in the first place. Fans went wild over AHTU and hung onto AHTU’s every move in the ring. AHTU figures to be a big player in the future of the ECWA.

2. CZW’s “Chainsaw” Joe Gacy def. Shawn Patrick in the ECWA Rumble for the title shot at the ECWA Mid-Atlantic Championship. First two men out were JJ the Crew Guy w/ Sebastian Night and Mozart Fontaine. Night addressed Mozart and being that they all are members of Revolution, asked Mozart to eliminate himself since he has already had several chances at the Mid-Atlantic title and to be a team player. Mozart did jump over the top rope and landed on the ring apron. When he went to shake JJ’s hand, he swerved his Revolution team mates and pulled JJ over the top rope, onto the floor and eliminated him. JJ and Sebastian were furious when JJ caught sight of TWA & ECW and Philly wrestling legend, “Hitman” Tony Stetson in the front row, where Stetson was sitting as a special guest for the evening. Stetson and JJ have had several encounters in the past, one a BRUTAL Pins Count Anywhere on the Ball Field Match in Sewell, New Jersey at Wescott Field on April 9th. Both also clashed in the ECWA-TWA Battle Royal at the 15th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament on April 30th in Voorhees, NJ. Stetson was having a good laugh at JJ’s expense when JJ attacked Stetson and pulled him over the guard rail and the two fought around the ring to the back stage area. Other in the Rumble included Mr. Ooh La La, ECWA’s NEW Super Hero SUPER CODY, Kid America, Russian Assassin, CUJO the Hellhound, Cha Cha Chance, Corey Blaze, and Timothy Richards. After Shawn Patrick (the 3rd entrant) eliminated CUJO the Hellhound, the bell rang and his music played, but the victory was cut short by ECWA Commissioner & CZW Owner DJ Hyde. Hyde said he had one more entrant, as he was unannounced prior to the show, CZW’s “Chainsaw” Joe Gacy. Gacy hit the ring and made short work of Patrick as Patrick had already taken a significant amount of punishment.

3. Special Guest Ring Announcer: former WWE Women’s Champion “The Kat” Stacy Carter. Cindy Rogers def. Jamilia Craft. Following the match Magnum and Gus Grand came to the ring and insulted all three women. The women responded by beating down Magnum and Grand, sending them scurrying to the dressing room.

A. In an act of ultimate narcissism, ECWA & TWA owner & promoter Mike Tartaglia and ECWA Commissioner DJ Hyde inducted each other into the ECWA 2011 HALL OF FAME!!! Tartaglia went on and on about how he breathed new life into the ECWA and noted that fans should be thanking him for saving the ECWA.

4. ECWA Heavyweight Title: “Greek God” Papadon def. Bazooka Joe via DQ. Pre-match stipulations stated that this was Joe’s LAST title match for the ECWA Heavyweight title w/ Papadon. After being inducted into the ECWA Hall of Fame, DJ Hyde called out Bazooka Joe. When Joe finally made his way to the ring, DJ Hyde announced that he did not want to wait till the end of the night for the title match. Joe was still in his sweats and obviously was not prepared and the line-up had the title match listed as last. Papdon, however, was ready to go and anyone with any sense could see DJ Hyde was trying to stack the deck against Joe. After the match begun, DJ Hyde told referee John Finegan to get out of the ring and that he wanted CZW referee, Drew Blood, to officiate the match. Blood was biased toward Papadon the whole match until Joe accidentally nailed Blood with a clothesline that sent Blood outside the ring. After Papadon tried to slam Joe into a ringside chair propped up in the corner, Joe reversed it, Papadon smashed his head and then Joe went for the cover. Referee John Finegan ran back to the ring to make the count but was interrupted after the two-count by Drew Blood and then Blood DQ’d Joe for clotheslining him, and declared Papadon as the winner and still ECWA Heavyweight Champion. Following the match Joe was furious and frustrated as he lost his last chance at the title. Looking for some satisifaction, Joe then challenged DJ Hyde to go at it one on one at the ECWA in July. Hyde hide behind his power as Commissioner and rebuked Joe’s challenge, saying Joe has not beaten anyone, and if he wants to get in the ring with DJ Hyde, then Joe must defeat DJ’s hand-picked opponent in July first. Joe accepted to the chorus of cheers from the fans.

5. Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian def. CZW’s Jonathan Gresham in a great match.

6. ECWA Mid-Atlantic Title: “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde def. CZW’s “Chainsaw” Joe Gacy to retain the title. Another great match that was back and forth and had fans on the edge of their seats. Wylde is still undefeated since Sept 18, 2010 when the NEW ERA in the ECWA began.

7. For the Vacant ECWA Tag Team Titles: TWA Tag Team Champions “Fusion DS” Matt Saigon & Damian Dragon def. “Midnight Sensations” Chris Rockwell & Sam Shields. Prior to the match, the contest was advertised as for the vacant ECWA Titles ONLY and that the TWA titles were not on the line. At the start of the match, ECWA Commissioner DJ Hyde came to the ring and announced that he spoke to ECWA & TWA owner Mike Tartaglia and they agreed that now the match would be for both titles and both titles would be unified into one championship. Great news for the Sensations who only had everything to gain, but now Dragon and Saigon had the added unexpected pressure of their TWA Titles at stake. After another stellar match, it was Dragon and Saigon with the win and both set of belts, the NEW ECWA & TWA UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!
