NOBODY knows more about World Champions than legendary manager of the Four Horsemen, James J. Dillon! After all, it was Dillon who led the Horsemen and NWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “Nature Boy” Ric Flair at the height of their success.

A little known fact is that Dillon is a close personal friend and mentor to current ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde, who gets his FIRST shot at the ECWA Heavyweight Championship against “Greek God” Papadon in Newark, Delaware on July 16th!

Here Dillon gives Wylde some sound advice, that the key is PREPARATION!


And that is exactly what Chris Wylde has been doing. With a 9-1 win-loss record in the ECWA, Wylde has increased his gym workouts and cardio training while facing the toughest competition on the scene recently, including two huge wins over Ricky Reyes (Super 8 competitor, 2004) in ACW and Sonjay Dutt (Super 8 competitor & finalist, 2007) in DCW. Wylde will also be participating via invitation in the TNA Gut-Check this Saturday in Asbury Park, New Jersey!

Be there July 16th in Newark, Delaware for the most anticipated ECWA Heavyweight Championship Match in ECWA’s 43 year old history, it’s Champion vs. Champion, “Greek God” vs “Heart Killer!” For tickets and information call 609.220.5598 or email info@ecwaprowrestling.com

In the ECWA, this is what it is all about, WRESTLING and the BELT! And, it is the oldest one in independent professional wrestling in the United States, the ECWA Heavweight Championship!
