Amazing Red informed ECWA matchmaker Joe Zanolle on Saturday, March 31st that he would be unable to attend and compete in the 16th Annual Super 8 on April 7th, citing a family emergency he needed to tend to. ECWA sends Red and his family best wishes.
Replacing Red is TNA IMPACT! Wrestling Star Tony Nese!!! Tony had a great series of matches with 2011 Super 8 semi-finalist Shiima Xion (now Zema Ion) on IMPACT! and also recently had a match vs Austin Aries vs Zema Ion vs Kid Kash!
Tony was also a 2008 ECWA Super 8 semi-finalist where he competed as Maverick.
Nese has been a standout at New York Wrestling Connection (NYWC), ROH, EVOLVE, DG-USA and many other Northeast independents!
“I apologize to the ECWA fans for this inconvenience,” said Zanolle. “As much as I was looking forward to see Red compete in the Super 8 as he did in 2002, I fully understand that family comes first and hope he and his family are OK. Having said that, the Super 8 is not about one person, but rather a spirit, an ideal of giving exposure and a platform to a new generation of performers and giving the fans the very best wrestling today.”
“Tony Nese is a great fit for the tournament and we are lucky to have him. Nese knows all about the Super 8, having competed in the 2008 edition, and jumped at the chance to win the trophy that eluded him 4 years ago.”
“ECWA fans were recently treated to a great match on March 3rd in Newark, Delaware as Nese took on Alex Reynolds,” Zanolle continued. “Many of our fans loved Nese and requested his return. One door closes, another opens. Needless to say, Tony belongs in the Super 8 and I look forward to all that he brings to the table.”
