Thanks again to PWI Magazine for all the coverage they provide for the ECWA & the TWA!

Chris meets Champion “GREEK GOD” Papadon in Newark, Delaware for the oldest and most prestigious title in independent pro wrestling in the United States. Email info@ecwaprowrestling or call 609.220.5598 for tickets and information.
Just learned that, unfortunately, Jamilia Craft will be unable to make the July 16th show due to a personal commitment. We regret this inconvenience. We did speak to Mr. Ooh La La and he told us to find any female wrestler in the world, but that it won’t matter, because as he stated, he and Kacee Carlisle are “Ze Best!” We will update the fans with a replacement as soon as possible!!!
Mr. Ooh La La is being being VERY confident in response to the news!
SHOCKWAVE is going to have to search high and low to find a partner as tough & as skilled as Kacee Carlisle!
Adam Cole scored a HUGE win over Austin Aries at the Super 8!
ADAM COLE to Face KEKOA the FLYIN’ HAWAIIAN July 16th in Newark, DE
– 2010 Wrestling Observer Newsletter Rookie of the Year.
– Current CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion
– 2011 CZW Best of the Best X Tournament Champion
– 2011 ECWA Super 8 Tournament Finalist
These are just SOME of the many achievements that belong to Adam Cole. The most amazing part is Cole is ONLY in his third year as a pro!
While July 16th will be Adam Cole’s ECWA Delaware debut, ECWA fans are very familiar with Cole from his unbelievable showing in the Super 8 Tournament on April 30th, where he defeated Sami Callihan, his hated rival, in the first round and Austin Aries, former 2-time ROH Champion, in the semi-finals before succumbing to Tommaso Ciampa in the finals.
The ECWA fans are not the only ones familiar with Cole, so is his scheduled opponent, the wildly popular Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian, who also has been making a great impression on the ECWA fan base of late. In fact, it was a match between Adam Cole and Kekoa from several years back that first brought Kekoa to the attention of ECWA management.
The real question though, is which Adam Cole will show up in Delaware? Will it be the mild-mannered, smiling, crowd favorite seen in ROH and the Super 8 & TWA in New Jersey? Or will it be the pompous, underhanded “Panama City Playboy” that holds the CZW Junior Heavyweight Championship in CZW? You have to consider the fact that D.J. Hyde, the owner of CZW, is the current ECWA Commissioner. But you also have to consider the fact too, that CZW fans are “counter-culture,” where the villain is celebrated and the hero is despised.
Either way, be sure to make it to the ECWA July 16th, as Adam Cole vs. Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian will surely be a wrestling classic!!!
Call 609.220.5598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets and info.
Adam Cole many times is a crowd favorite...
...but in CZW, Cole is despised by fans!
Either way, Kekoa says he will be ready for the challenge July 16th!
