PREVIEW of JUNE 2nd ECWA “RAISING the BAR”
ECWA Heavyweight Title Match
“Greek God” Papadon (c ) vs. Adam Cole
This promises to be THE biggest, most explosive ECWA Heavyweight Title Matches in the 44 year history of the ECWA. You’ll definitely need to be there to see the drama unfold and witness wrestling at its best. Papadon is fresh off of winning the 2012 Super 8 and defending his title against the very popular and talented Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian. Cole is one of the young upstarts in ROH who recently pinned ROH champion Davey Richards in tag team encounter and came very close to unseating Richards for the championship in a singles match. Will the “Greek God” continue to cement his legacy by once again retaining his title? Or will Adam Cole spoil the party and prove why he is considered one of the best in the world today?
TWA Heavyweight Title Match: Falls Count Anywhere
“Heart Killer” Chris Wylde (c ) vs. Breaker Morant w/ Joel Blackhart
When the Blackhearts first invaded the ECWA, no one knew it was more than one person. No one knew that it was former TWA promoter and owner Joel Goodhart behind it all and that TWA stars Bobby Shields, Josh Daniels, and TWA champ Breaker Morant were the bite behind his bark. Chris Wylde took the invasion personally and has been on a mission to rid the ECWA of the Blackhart menace. Month after month, Wylde has proven his strength, determination, and everything that embodies the ECWA spirit. So much so that last month, he challenged Breaker Morant for his coveted TWA heavyweight title. Against all odds, he pulled out the victory and is the new TWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!! Now in a state of disbelief and anger, Breaker issued a challenge that has since been accepted to fight Chris Wylde for the TWA title! Not to mention it has a special stipulation…. FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE IN THE BUILDING! Will Wylde once again repel the bitter, evil Blackharts and possibly even finish off Breaker Morant for good? Or will the ex-champ prove he’s not done yet and crumble the Heartkiller forever? Time will tell as this explosive match-up takes place on June 2!
ECWA Unified Tag Team Title Match
“FUSION DS” Matt Saigon & Damian Dragon (c ) vs. Bandido Jr. & Azrieal
A tag team war is set for Raising The Bar on June 2! “FUSION DS” Matt Saigon and Damian Dragon, are fresh off defeating “the Midnight Sensations” Christopher Rockwell & Sam Shields in a Losers Leave ECWA Match and finishing them off for good after a year-long back and forth battle. They believe it’s their destiny to hold the tag team titles in ECWA and that no one can beat them. Unfortunately for FUSION, there is a team that thinks they have more than what it takes to defeat the current 3-time champions and end the championship celebration early. Bandido Jr and Azrieal, a very dangerous and well known team, are bring an exciting blend of technical and high flying skills into the ECWA. Bandido Jr. & Azrieal hold wins in the ECWA over such great teams as The Slophunters (Alex Reynolds & Johnny Silver) and Ricky “the Model” Martinez & Danny E! On June 2nd, the 2012 SUPER 8 quarter-final round opponents are back together, this time going after the ECWA Unified Tag Team Titles. What else could possibly up the ante in this exciting match-up? The fact that these two teams are the only 2 independent tag teams to ever be ranked in the PWI Top Ten Tag Teams. That’s huge and has helped bolster both teams’ confidence going into this match-up. Be there June 2 to see which team is truly the best!
ECWA Mid-Atlantic Title Match
“The BOSS” Mike Tartaglia (c ) vs. Mr. Ooh La La w/ Coach Jim Shorts
ECWA promoter and owner Michael Tartaglia has reached a new all-time low as after last month’s event, May 5th Divide & Conquer, he BOUGHT the ECWA Mid Atlantic Championship from “Greek God” Papadon! Since then he’s been running around South Jersey boasting he’s the champ and is unbeatable and overall making a fool of himself, even sleeping with the title! All this was after he screwed ECWA icon and Hall Of Famer Mr. Ooh La La the night he was receiving the first Lifetime Achievement Award in ECWA History. Ooh La La was already on the wrong side of the boss as he eliminated Tartaglia in the Annual Super 8 Battle Royal back in April. Not to mention Ooh La La was starting his #tosstheboss campaign which infuriated Tartaglia. Since Ooh La La’s “title match” with Papadon was not conducted under the most air circumstances, he was offered another shot by ECWA Matchmaker Joe Zanolle. This time Ooh La La chose the Mid-Atlantic Title and Tartaglia looking for revenge. Will Ooh La La pay the price for “Crossing the Boss” or will he find justice and the Mid-Atlantic Championship? Find out on June 2, ‘Raising The Bar’!
ECWA DREAM MATCH
Grandslam Champion Aden Chambers vs. Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian
In a match-up of two of the best talents ever to step foot in an ECWA ring, Kekoa the Flying Hawaiian faces off against ECWA Grandslam Champion Aden Chambers! Kekoa is hungry to prove himself after first, losing in the first round of the 2012 Super 8 Tournament and then last month losing his Mid Atlantic Championship to “Greek God” Papadon. Chambers is an ECWA icon, having already won the 2008 Super 8 Tournament and is a Grand Slam Champion(won all titles in the ECWA). Aden’s back on the prowl looking to re-climb the ECWA ladder and once again prove he’s still the best on the East Coast.
What will happen when a focused Kekoa runs square into the smirking, confident veteran Aden Chambers? You’ll have to be there to see what happens as this match will be electric!
In many ways, Kekoa is the New Era version of ECWA Original Aden Chambers. Both are very popular with the fans and both are super talented!!! This is the first time ever these two have met and may be the only time! Don’t miss this match!!!!!!!!!
“Greatest American Hero” Corey Blaze vs. Kid America
Former tag team partners collide! A few months ago, Corey Blaze was teaming up with Kid America in a team called “America’s Hero’s”. However, after a few miscues and mishaps Corey was sick of being teamed with what he called a ‘cartoon character’ and declared himself the only real hero in the ECWA. Brutality ensued as Corey assaulted Kid America after a match so brutally that he had to be carried out on a stretcher! Doctor’s then told him he had to retire based off the neck injury he received during the beating. Kid USA, Kid America’s young protégé, decided to take up the honor of his mentor and fight Blaze himself. What he didn’t realize was this new focused Corey Blaze was out to hurt him and hurt him he did. Flash forward to last month at May 5th ‘Divide and Conquer’ as Kid USA wanted revenge for not only his mentor but for himself as well. Corey once again beat the young upstart badly before he went for the kill…. but it didn’t get that far… as he went for the pinfall referee Mike Kehner stopped making the 3 count as Kid America’s music hit… Corey, ready for a fight, didn’t notice that Kehner had put on the familiar red, white, and blue mask and was revealed to be Kid America! After numerous attempts by the locker room and security the two men were finally separated and this match set-up. It has all lead to this as June 2 at ‘Raising The Bar’Mike Kehner aka Kid America faces off against the “Greatest American Hero” Corey Blaze in a huge grudge match for the ages! This will not be a wrestling match, this is going to be a FIGHT!
“Beautiful” Bobby Shields w/ Joel Blackhart vs. Cole Callaway
Blackheart vs. The Rainbow!
“Beautiful” Bobby Shields is tired of being disrespected by fans and is trying to redeem the Blackheart name a bit after they’ve suffered a setback in losing the TWA title. Of course, standing in his way is the vastly popular Cole Callaway who loves nothing more to make people smile and …entertain the fans of the ECWA. Sheilds is not impressed and wants to wipe the smile off of Cole’s face and off the face of every single person in the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club. However, Callaway has shown when pushed to the limit he can out wrestle just about anyone on the ECWA roster. Will Bobby be able to redeem himself and the Blackhearts by defeating someone very loved by the ECWA fans? Or will Cole show that he is more than just “show” and is in fact a force to be reckoned with? Be there as the dark, evil Blackheart “Beautiful” Bobby Shields takes on the keeper of the rainbow, Cole Callaway!
Women’s Match: Tina San Antonio vs. Jessie Kaye
Woman’s Action in the ECWA! After being dormant for a good many years, woman’s action has become a staple of the shows as of late as we bring you the best, battling beauties on the indie scene! This time we bring in the tough as nails and popular Jessica Kaye who is making her return to ECWA after an unsuccessful debut at the last Carney’s Point, NJ show. Standing across the ring from her is the stunning blonde Tina San Antonio who is making her ECWA debut after previously debuting with the TWA. Kaye is out to prove she is the better competitor, but she should proceed with caution as San Antonio has been known to do whatever it takes to win. What will happen as these two battle inside the ECWA ring for the first time? Be there and see for yourself on Saturday, June 2 at ‘Raising The Bar’!
