1. Papadon defeats Tommaso Ciampa, wins spot in 2012 Super 8- In what must be considered another classic match in ECWA history, the “Greek God” Papadon retained his heavyweight title by defeating Tommaso Ciampa. A spectacular back and forth match that first ended with Ciampa gaining the pinfall but the first referee called a DQ on Tommaso for his accidental foreman shot, which led to owner Mike Tartaglia restarting the match. Papadon quikly capitalized with a lowblow with the ref distracted by Tartaglia and then hitting the ‘Alpha-Omega’ shinging wizard to score the pinfall.

2. Chris Wylde defeats Bobby Shields(w/Gus Grand), Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian- Quick possibly the biggest crowd pleaser of the night as the popular Chris Wylde once again retained his Mid Atlantic title over Bobby Shields and Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian. Amazing aerial displays highlighted this match that went back and forth between all 3 men, all almost gaining victory numerous times. Wylde was beaten badly but somehow scored a pinfall over Shields after use of a swanton bomb off the turnbuckle as Kekoa could not break the pin attempt.
*Wylde was presented with the new Mid Atlantic Championship afterwards by management
