ECWA Heavyweight Championship Saigon vs. Martinez

Saigon: Redemption
Realized?

 

Saturday
December 7, 2014 was a night of celebrating the holiday spirit… the ECWA
faithful lined up to donate toys to the annual Toys for Tots toy drive for the
US Marines.  However, for a member of the
ECWA roster it was truly a night to celebrate… or so it seemed.

Matt
Saigon took the Boss’s Challenge head-on… he took his friend head-on… he went
for broke with his career, his hopes, and his dreams all on the line for a
chance… just one chance to earn what he so rightfully deserved.

Saigon
and Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian fought and clawed their way through a brutal and sometimes
uncomfortable match that held as much pain as emotion for both men. Back and
forth they went, but in the end the will of a man possessed could not, would
not be denied.  ‘The Boss’ Mike Tartaglia
couldn’t hold back the storm and he could only watch as all his evil plans went
for naught. Matt Saigon won! He defeated the Boss’s Challenge! He had overcome
a man he considered his brother. MATT SAIGON HAD FINALLY EARNED THE RIGHT TO
BATTLE FOR THE ECWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

Exhausted…
Kekoa and Saigon embraced each other. Little did the Vietnam Phenom know it was
for the last time as friends.  Right on cue,
Tartaglia revealed his sinister plot. Kekoa would drill Saigon with a brutal
super kick ending a years long friendship and brotherhood.

For the
fans who supported him and for Saigon himself it was a bittersweet moment. He
had finally persevered… he had fought… he had given his blood, sweat, and tears…
he had earned the respect and opportunity he had so rightfully deserved… he had
his chance at gold… but at what cost?

Later
in the night, Tartaglia would finish off quite possibly the biggest betrayal in
ECWA history. Using Kekoa as his new pawn, he would cheat Bobby Shields out of
his ECWA Heavyweight Championship to let Ricky Martinez become the NEW ECWA
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! A new alliance known as the ‘Future of the Business’ had
come into focus. Kekoa and Martinez stood tall as Shields could do nothing to
defend himself or his title. Enter Matt Saigon. Rallying, Saigon and Shields
would try to combat this new found threat.

But it
wasn’t meant to be. The newly crowned champion and Kekoa laid waste to Bobby
Shields and Saigon. The fans jeered and showcased their disgust for this new
development taking ECWA by storm.

It’s
all come to a head.

Saturday
January 17, 2014 it’s ‘New Year’s Resolution IV’ in the ECWA . But it’s more
than that. ‘The Vietnam Phenom’ Matt Saigon FINALLY gets his chance… it’s Matt
Saigon vs. Ricky Martinez with “Big Red” aka the ECWA Heavyweight Championship
on the line!

It’s
become personal… it’s become an obsession… and Saigon’s chance to RISE is NOW!

Will
Ricky Martinez show why he calls himself the ‘Future of the Business’ and start
a reign of terror in the ECWA?

Or will Matt Saigon complete a
journey that’s been years in the making?

Only time will tell… but you’ll
have to be there to find out what’s in store next in the ECWA!

ECWA Sat Dec 6 Rise of Saigon?

Rise of Saigon?

Indeed the rise of Saigon has begun in the ECWA… fueled by a sense of revenge and the support of the entire ECWA fan base… Matt Saigon has declared WAR on Mike Tartaglia. But Why? Limited opportunity and loyalty unrecognized. Saigon first started in Tartaglia’s reborn TWA back in 2009 as a young upstart named Ryu Lee… by chance he was teamed with ring veteran Damian Dragon, which was supposed to be a one time-one night only deal. But it didn’t turn out that way. Saigon and Dragon combined to make Fusion DS which later would become arguably the most popular tag team in ECWA history.
Fusion DS won 3 ECWA tag team championships which catapulted Damian Dragon to unrivaled popularity and the 2013 Super 8 championship. Feeling he was next in line to get championship opportunities, Saigon kept his head down and stayed loyal to the company and the fans. But as time passed, the ‘Vietnam Phenom’ realized that no chances were coming. He joined up with the deadly Blackhart faction to gain attention but all that did was alienate him from ECWA management.
More time passed and while he gained the fans adulation every single month he wrestled, he was starting to get angry that his loyalty meant nothing and that he would have to TAKE his opportunities. Taking to the mic, he demanded what he had earned from ECWA management. Tartaglia, of course, was quick to point out that all of his success was due to HIM and NOT the hard work of Saigon himself. So of course Tartaglia did what he always does… hide behind bigger, stronger men.
And thus, ‘The Boss’s Challenge’ was created….
Saigon would have to go through a series of matches, 5 to be exact, of Tartaglia’s choosing with a very special stipulation…. If he wins, he can challenge for the ECWA Heavyweight title… BUT if he loses he is gone from the ECWA forever.
All this did was piss off Matt Saigon. Deciding the time for talk was over, he would accept the Boss’s challenge and declare NO MATTER WHAT HE WOULD END HIM AND WHOEVER HE PUT IN HIS PATH.
Donnie Hart, Bolo Yung, Mark Harro, Michael Spanos… all have fell to the hands of Vietnam Phenom. Even with the Boss trying time and time again to make sure his assassins took out Saigon for good, the fans wouldn’t let him falter… and falter he hasn’t!
Which leads to the final Boss’s Challenge on Saturday December 6, 2014, Matt Saigon has one more match to get through and he finally gets what he deserved years ago… a shot at greatness and championship gold.
But the Boss is furious himself that all his roadblocks have been knocked down. So he has made concocted his MOST EVIL plan to date… He’s found one of Matt Saigon’s best friends in and out of pro wrestling to do his bidding… Kekoa! Kekoa is fresh off a horrible knee injury where he had to give up the ECWA Heavyweight title and now has a new attitude and moniker…King Kekoa. And now not only does Saigon have to battle a friend and brother, a special stipulation has been added.
WHOEVER LOSES THIS MATCH IS GONE FROM ECWA FOREVER!
That’s right if Kekoa loses he’s fired… If Saigon loses he’s fired.
FRIENDS COLLIDE WITH CAREERS ON THE LINE!
Will Matt Saigon overcome the Boss’s Challenge and take the company by storm… finally getting his due and proper?
Or will Kekoa’s new attitude and brutality prove that not even friendship can help a man with his back against the wall?
Be there to find out!
