ADEN CHAMBERS HAS A MESSAGE FOR PAPADON (video)

The ECWA Grandslam Champion, ADEN CHAMBERS, has a message for the current ECWA Heavyweight Champion, “Greek God” Papadon (it’s Papadon v Chambers, Mar 10 in Carney’s Point, NJ):

For Aden Chambers, 5 months felt like 5 years! That is how long it took for him to rehab his fractured femur that he incurred during the MCW Shamrock Memorial Cup on July 30, 2011 in Dundalk, MD. At that time Chambers was scheduled to return to the ECWA 44th Anniversary show on September 24th in Newark, Delaware in a highly anticipated 4 corners match for the ECWA Mid-Atlantic Title vs. Chris Wyde (then champion) vs. Bobby Shields vs. Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian (the current champion).

All Chambers could think about during his rehab was getting back into the ring, but more specifically the ECWA ring! And why not, Chambers has had a storied career in the ECWA. He has held every championship and also won the 2008 Super 8 Tournament.

When Chambers sent word that he was back and ready for action, ECWA Matchmaker Joe Zanolle was quick to sign a match that has NEVER taken place before… Aden Chambers vs. “Greek God” Papadon!!! Now Papadon has a defense of his ECWA heavyweight Championship on March 3, 2012 in Newark, Delaware against #1 Johnny Silver. IF Papadon successfully defends the championship, then his match with Chambers on March 10th at the YMCA of Salem County in Carney’s Point, NJ (just 10 minutes from the Boys & Girls Club in Newark, DE) will be for the title!

Aden Chambers won the ECWA Heavyweight Championship on March 17, 2007! Can lightening strike twice one week shy of 5 years later on Mar 10, 2012 in Carney’s Point, NJ??????

Don’t miss it as Aden Chambers will take on the current ECWA Heavyweight Champion GreekGod Papadon for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER and perhaps the ONLY TIME!!!!!!!!!!

Call 609.220.5598 for tix!!!

“ECWA … become a fan all over again!!!!”

Chambers suffered a compound fracture to the femur and a cracked hip bone when he landed on the concrete here at the MCW Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup, July 30, 2011 in Dundalk, MD!

Chambers vs. Ricky Reyes at the Shamrock Cup moments before his injury!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTO! Here is an X-Ray of Aden Chambers fractured femur!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTO! Here is the X-Ray of Aden Chamber's femur post surgery! You can clearly see the steel rod here!

Chambers went through months of tedious rehab!

Chambers is a member of an elite group in pro wrestling, ECWA SUPER 8 Tournament winners!

Chambers has never been shy about taking risks inside, and outside, the ring!

Chambers began his ECWA career in 2004 as the OC Boyz with Shawn Patrick and Ace Darling as their mentor!

Teacher vs. student, Chambers takes on Ace Darling at the 2011 ECWA Super 8 Tournament! Chambers and Ace are the only 2 men in ECWA history to have won every championship and the Super 8!

Chambers had his first match back on January 14th, 2012 vs. Dustin Tarr!

Chambers knows what it feels like to be the keeper of the oldest heavyweight championship in independent pro wrestling history and he wants that feeling back!

But standing in his way is the current champion Papadon who knows that feeling too and has no plans to let the championship slip from his grasp!

FLATLINERS RETURN TO ECWA AT SUPER 8

In a special non-tournament match at the 16th Annual ECWA Super 8 on Apr 7, 2012 in Newark, Delaware, one of the most devasting tag teams of all time and former ECWA Unified Tag Team Champions*, The Flatliners (Asylum and Matt Burns) will return for a title shot at the ECWA Unified Tag Team Champions! The current champions The Midnight Sensations (Chris Rockwell & Sam Shields) have 2 titles defenses against FUSION DS (Matt Saigon & Damian Dragon) (Mar 3 and Mar 10) before Apr 7th!! So it will a title match with either FUSION DS or the Midnight Sensations defending against the Flatliners at the SUPER 8!

*The Flatliners defeated FUSION DS (Matt Saigon & Damian Dragon)in the quarter-finals of the K-CUP Tag Team Tournament on Nov 19, 2011 in Newark, Delaware for the ECWA Unified Tag Team Titles before losing them to the Logan Brothers (Matt & Bryan) in the semifinal round!

FUSION DS & MIDNIGHT SENSATIONS SPEAK ABOUT RECENT EVENTS (video)

Matt Saigon and Damian Dragon, known collectively as FUSION DS, won the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) Tag Team Titles from the Best Around, Bruce Maxwell and TJ Cannon, in January 2011 in Voorhees, NJ.

In May 2011, FUSION DS defeated Christopher Rockwell and Sam Shields, the Midnight Sensations, for the vacant ECWA Tag Team Tiles and also to unify both the TWA and ECWA Tag Team Championships to become the first ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Champions.

FUSION DS defended the championships throughout 2011 and were ranked the number 10 tag team in the world several weeks by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) Magazine online at www.pwi-online.com.  This marked the first time ever that any ECWA champion(s) had ever been ranked in the PWI overall top ten, which is usually reserved for WWE, TNA, NWA and international wrestlers.

FUSION DS’s title reign ended at the ECWA K-CUP Tag Team Tournamentin Newark, DE in Nov 2011 when they were defeated by Asylum and Matt Burns, the Flatliners, in the quarter-final round.  The Flatliners then lost the championship to the Matt & Bryan Logan in the semi-finals.  The Midnight Sensations, old rivals of FUSION DS, then defeated the Logan Brothers in the finals for the Unified Tag Team Title and the K-CUP trophy.

Following their loss at the K-CUP, FUSION felt slighted by the fans who began to rally behind the Midnight Sensations and voted the Sensations ECWA Tag Team, Match and Moment of the Year in ECWA’s Year End Awards in on-line voting.

In January 2012, FUSION DS saved the Midnight Sensations after the Sensations defeated the Nigerian Nightmares in a very tough title defense and a brutal post match attack by the Nightmares.  After chasing the Nightmares off with chairs, FUSION helped the Sensations back to their feet only to brutally attack them with a series a chair shots!!!

With the roles now reversed, and the Sensations now the favorite of the ECWA fans, FUSION DS has vowed their new attitude will lead them to become the first ever 2-time Unified ECWA Tag Team Champions. However, the defending champions, who bill themselves as time traveling, karate aliens from the Triton Moon sent from the future to save tag team wrestling, say different and promise to send FUSION DS away empty-handed.

The Midnight Sensations have 2 title defenses scheduled against FUSION DS, first at ECWA SPRING BATTLE!, Mar 3, 2012 in Newark, Delaware and then at the YMCA of Salem County, Mar 10, 2012 in Carney’s Point, NJ.
