Number 7 in the 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament: A Warrior Arrives

Number 7 in the 2014 ECWA Super 8: A Warrior Arrives

 

            Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or
important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament.
The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the
top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads
like a who’s who of notable wrestling stars such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan,
Christian, the Hardy Boys, Xavier Woods, Austin Aries, and Christopher Daniels.
Over the years thousands of fans have came to witness the next phase of history
and who will become the next breakout performer. This year is no different than
any other year… the field of eight are being planned… and the first 2 entrants
have been announced. We also will have a special guest host this year… last
year’s Super 8 winner Damian Dragon who has since retired from the wrestling
business.

 

The tournaments unique hard hitting fast paced style lead
to the creation of Ring of Honor and has also lead to dozens of copy cat
tournaments looking to bottle up the lightning that was created back in 1997.
But there is only one original tournament that showcases wrestlers that are
upcoming and the next break out star who could be on a television screen near
you very soon. To this day, to get an invitation is considered a high honor and
a signification of pure talent.

 

On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys
& Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest
happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the man selected to
be the seventh entrant into the tournament:

 

‘The Warrior’ Gran Akuma

 

Akuma enters into this
year’s tournament as the most experienced wrestler. But make no mistake the man
nicknamed ‘The Warrior’ is here to pick apart the other entrants piece by piece…
with a certain deadly make no friends attitude. Traveling around the country
for places like Chikara, Full Impact Pro, CZW, and Dragon Gate USA he’s
transformed himself as someone who used to be known more for his fancy footwork
to a more complete wrestler. Being trained by men like ECWA alums Mike
Quakenbush and Reckless Youth means he has an unmatchable junior heavyweight
pedigree no one else can claim in this or any year’s tournament. Capable of
matching speed for speed or power for power Gran Akuma is an early favorite to
easily win a tournament he seems destined to win. Can Akuma walk into Newark,
Delaware and take no prisoners as is his M-O? Or will he be another casualty of
overconfidence and pride? Time will tell. But this warrior will certainly be no
push over come April 5.

 

Gran Akuma looks to prove everyone wrong in the ECWA
arena come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to
miss this amazing night. The last name and eighth spot will be decided THIS
SATURDAY at ‘Spring Battle III’ in a tense Over the Top Rope Battle Royal.

 

So Saturday March 1, 2014… ‘Spring Battle III.’ The
last show before the Super 8 has the tradition of being very important to the
tournament itself and this year proves it! Tickets are on sale now for this
show and the Super 8 Tournament. This year’s design for the annual Super 8
t-shirt is complete and they will be on sale as well on March 1. Here’s a brief
overview of the next event:

Entry number 6 in the 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament is a unique attraction

Entry number 6 in the 2014 ECWA Super 8 a unique
attraction

 

            Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or
important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament.
The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the
top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads

a signification of pure talent.

 

On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys
& Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest
happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the man selected to
be the sixth entrant into the tournament:

 

‘The Ringmaster’ Oliver Grimsly

 

Quite possibly the most
unique, bizarre man to ever take part in the Super 8 Tournament. He’s wrestled
in places like CCW, Qwest Pro, and most notably MCW. Called ‘The Ringmaster’
because of his circus leader look he often times loves to have fun with the
fans by bringing balloons to the ring with him. A fast paced technical style
wrestler he’s the true definition of an underdog with his smaller size who will
look to surprise the other entrants who take him lightly. One of his favorite
tactics is to psyche his opponents out by talking to them and the fans during
his matches which tends to anger his opponents. He can use his ring intelligence
to take advantage easily as he loves to play possum before often landing the
deciding blow for a victory. Will Grimsly be only looking to have some fun with
the ECWA fans and take the intensity of the tournament for granted? Or will he
shock everyone by having some of his trademark never say die attitude? One
things for certain the ECWA fans are in for a treat seeing this interesting new
entrant in the tournament.

 

Grimsly looks to prove everyone wrong in the ECWA arena
come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to miss
this amazing night. More names will be announced over the coming weeks along
with more attractions coming for the Tournament day itself.

 

The next ECWA show is on Saturday March 1, 2014… ‘Spring
Battle III.’ Traditionally the event before the tournament has HUGE Super 8
implications and this one will be no different. Tickets are on sale now for
this show and the Super 8 Tournament. This year’s design for the annual Super 8
t-shirt is complete and they will be on sale as well on March 1. Here’s a brief

The 5th Competitor in the 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament is……………………….

2014 ECWA Super 8 gets number 5

 

            Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament. The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads like a who’s who of notable wrestling stars such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan, Christian, the Hardy Boys, Xavier Woods, Austin Aries, and Christopher Daniels.

This year is no different than any other year… the field of eight are being planned… and the first 2 entrants have been announced. We also will have a special guest host this year… last year’s Super 8 winner Damian Dragon who has since retired from the wrestling business.

 

            The tournaments unique hard hitting fast paced style lead to the creation of Ring of Honor and has also lead to dozens of copy cat tournaments looking to bottle up the lightning that was created back in 1997. But there is only one original tournament that showcases wrestlers that are upcoming and the next break out star who could be on a television screen near you very soon.

            On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the man selected to be the fifth entrant into the tournament:

 

 

Ricky ‘The Model’ Martinez

 

Martinez is a man the ECWA fans know very well. He recently was the longest reigning Mid Atlantic Champion in the history of the company before losing it in December. Outside the ECWA, he’s appeared all over the east coast in places like LVW, EPWE, and ECPW. Known as a cocky pretty boy who would much rather check his hair than wrestle a clean match, he’s recently gotten a mean streak. His vast improvement in the ring has transformed him and turned him cold, bitter, and ready to hurt people to get what he wants. He’s added much to his offense in the technical department with the ability to weaken any opponent limb by limb. His Woofplex has won him plenty of matches lately. He is by far the most improved wrestler in the tournament this year and that could mean he has a chip on his shoulder to prove himself and gain respect from his peers. ‘The Model’ could very well strut down to the ring and shut down his high flying counterparts to his level. He has to be the scariest entrant into the Super 8 so far. Can he put aside his cockiness and do what he’s done for a better part of a year dominating all? Only time will tell but one thing’s for certain…. Ricky Martinez has arrived.

 

 

 

            Martinez looks to prove everyone wrong in the ECWA arena come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to miss this amazing night. More names will be announced over the coming weeks along with more attractions coming for the Tournament day itself.

4th Competitor entered in the 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament on April 5 is ………

Number 4 for the 2014 ECWA Super 8

 

            Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament. The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads like a who’s who of notable wrestling stars such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan, Christian, the Hardy Boys, Xavier Woods, Austin Aries, and Christopher Daniels.

            On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the man selected to be the fourth entrant into the tournament:

 

 

‘The Southern Savior’ John Skyler

 

Skyler is a young fast rising star in the independent wrestling circuit. He’s made quite the name for himself in the south and south eastern parts of the country. At just 26 years old, he’s already put together an impressive resume making appearances in WWE, TNA, Full Impact Pro, and All Star Wrestling in the UK overseas. He’s even already taken part of in a NWA Future Legends tournament which makes him one of the only men announced so far with tournament experience pedigree. ECWA fans might remember him from an appearance in the 2012 Super 8 Battle Royal. Known for his brutality with extremely hard hits he’s quietly the most dangerous man so far in the tournament. Fans will want to watch out for his super kick which has already been talked about as the best and brutal to ever be in professional wrestling. What makes his announcement even more interesting is his on again, off again friendship with fellow Super 8 competitor Steven Walters. Is he coming to just ruin Walters chances at history or is he looking to cement himself as ‘The Southern Savior’ of wrestling and continue to build the an even bigger resume? Time will tell but he will bring no shortage of intensity to this tournament.

 

Super 8 announcement video for Skyler being the fourth entrant which showcases his skills:

 

 

            Skyler looks to shock and awe the ECWA arena come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to miss this amazing night. More names will be announced over the coming weeks along with more attractions coming for the Tournament day itself.

3rd Entrant named in the 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament

Third entrant in the 2014 ECWA Super 8 Tournament selected

 

            Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament. The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads like a who’s who of notable wrestling stars such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan, Christian, the Hardy Boys, Xavier Woods, Austin Aries, and Christopher Daniels. Over the years thousands of fans have came to witness the next phase of history and who will become the next breakout performer. This year is no different than any other year… the field of eight are being planned… and the first 2 entrants have been announced. We also will have a special guest host this year… last year’s Super 8 winner Damian Dragon who has since retired from the wrestling business.

 

            The tournaments unique hard hitting fast paced style lead to the creation of Ring of Honor and has also lead to dozens of copy cat tournaments looking to bottle up the lightning that was created back in 1997. But there is only one original tournament that showcases wrestlers that are upcoming and the next break out star who could be on a television screen near you very soon. To this day, to get an invitation is considered a high honor and a signification of pure talent.

 

            On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the man selected to be the third entrant into the tournament:

 

 

Steven ‘The Fever’ Walters

 

Debuting back in 2002, Walters has made quite name for himself traveling around the world. Known for frequent appearances in companies like NWA Anarchy, Resistance Pro, and Dragon Gate USA he has even toured Europe drawing the attention of talent scouts from both TNA and WWE. His high flying ability is second to none but it’s his speed and quick strike blows that make him the only one man announced so far for the Super 8 that can win a match in an instant. ECWA fans will remember him from his stellar appearance in the 2012 Super 8 Over the Top Rope battle royal. Nicknamed ‘The Fever’ because of his blistering speed and good looks the ladies swoon over he just might be the most dangerous competitor in this year’s class.

            Walters looks to set the ECWA arena on fire come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to miss this amazing night. More names will be announced over the coming weeks along with more attractions coming for the Tournament day itself.

 

            The next ECWA show is on Saturday March 1, 2014… ‘Spring Battle III.’ Traditionally the event before the tournament has HUGE Super 8 implications and this one will be no different.

Matt Cross named first competitor in 18th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament

The ECWA announces first 2 entrants in 2014 Super 8 Tournament

Few things in independent wrestling are more storied or important than the annual East Coast Wrestling Association Super 8 Tournament. The eight tournament is single elimination and is in year 18 of showcasing the top young stars in today’s independent scene. A list of past participants reads like a who’s who of notable wrestling stars such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan, Christian, the Hardy Boys, Xavier Woods, Austin Aries, and Christopher Daniels. Over the years thousands of fans have came to witness the next phase of history and who will become the next breakout performer. This year is no different than any other year… the field of eight are being planned… and the first 2 entrants have been announced. We also will have a special guest host this year… last year’s Super 8 winner Damian Dragon who has since retired from the wrestling business.

The tournaments unique hard hitting fast paced style lead to the creation of Ring of Honor and has also lead to dozens of copy cat tournaments looking to bottle up the lightning that was created back in 1997. But there is only one original tournament that showcases wrestlers that are upcoming and the next break out star who could be on a television screen near you very soon. To this day, to get an invitation is considered a high honor and a signification of pure talent.

On Saturday April 5, 2014 at the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club in Newark, Delaware the fans will witness the greatest happening in indy professional wrestling! Here’s a look at the first 2 participants:

‘The Maple Leaf Machine’ Kao Storm
Storm is a Delaware fan favorite who’s built a huge fan following in the First State. He’s wrestled in such companies as PPW and most notably DCW all over the state. Fans have long offered his name as a suggestion for the tournament and after waiting over 5 years to hear his name called ECWA management decided to give him the chance to showcase his high flying-technical abilities. He brings a different, unique approach to the Super 8 as he tries to claim the title for all of Delaware.

‘M Dogg 20’ Matt Cross
Cross actually was scheduled to be in the 2007 Super 8 Tournament but with an injury he was replaced by former TNA star Sonjay Dutt. So his entrance in this tournament is 7 years in the making! Cross is a high flying specialist who is more than happy to risk his own body in order to win. His style and even his heavily bearded appearance are reminiscent of WWE’s Daniel Bryan. He’s known for an amazing Shooting Star Leg Drop. Cross has wrestled in such companies as CZW, TNA, ROH, and was on the latest season of WWE’s reality contest show Tough Enough. It seems destiny for him to be in the Super 8… Can he take home the trophy that eluded him 7 years ago?

Link to the Super 8 announcement video showcasing both participants announced so far:

These two men are looking to set the ECWA arena on fire come April 5! If you’re a fan of independent wrestling you won’t want to miss this amazing night. More names will be announced over the coming weeks along with more attractions coming for the Tournament day itself.

The next ECWA show is on Saturday March 1, 2014… ‘Spring Battle III.’ Traditionally the event before the tournament has HUGE Super 8 implications and this one will be no different. Tickets are on sale now for this show and the Super 8 Tournament. This year’s design for the annual Super 8 t-shirt is complete and they will be on sale as well on March 1.
