First look at ECWA Super 8 Participants March 21 in Woodbury Heights, NJ

First Look: ECWA Super 8 participants

 

            The ECWA is proudly presenting the 19Annual Super 8 Tournament on Saturday March 21, 2015. The Super 8 has long been a tournament rich in tradition that’s allowed many men and now women to showcase their abilities to a wide audience. To say it’s etched in independent wrestling history is an understatement. Most of today’s wrestlers read about, went to, and dreamed about the Super 8 growing up… and they all want the honor to chase down that elusive golden trophy.

            The names who’ve competed read like a who’s who of today’s wrestling superstars… names like Daniel Bryan, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, both Hardy brothers, and Christopher Daniels. And that’s just to name a few.

            This year’s field of 8 hopes to one day be considered in the same esteem as those names just mentioned. This tournament is about young up and comers getting their chance to showcase their talents…. It’s about veterans getting that last chance at glory… it’s all those things but who will be the next break out star? Who will the fans be able to say “I saw him before…?” Who will dominate the competition?

            This offers a first look at this year’s field of 8 participants. Here’s a brief look at BJ Hancock, Jaxson James, and Jason Kincaid.

 

“The Modern Classic” BJ Hancock

Hancock debuted in pro wrestling in 2005 after training under Abel Atoms. Quickly making a name for himself in the Carolinas in promotions like Anarchy Wrestling, Premiere Wrestling Experience, and Alternative Pro Wrestling, BJ racked up respect and numerous championship title wins. Fancying himself as a legend in the art of “Old School” wrestling, his ego has often times took billing over his impressive technical wrestling ability. Sometimes the biggest mouth in the room can also have the biggest bark… and Hancock is as crafty a veteran as there is. Where else does a man calling himself “The Modern Classic” make a statement? At the ECWA Super 8 Tournament of course. BJ Hancock is a formidable competitor looking to make the wrestling world take notice of what he can do in the ring.

 

“The Thorough Bred” Jaxson James

Jaxson James might be the least experienced participant in the tournament this year. But don’t take that for granted. His toughness and brutality is unmatched perhaps not by anyone ever in the Super 8. A four year football player in college, he used his desire to get to the NFL to fuel his passion for pro wrestling. Trained by the legendary Dr. Tom Pritchard, he’s quickly established himself as a heavy hitter. Only two years in professional wrestling, he’s already climbed to huge heights. Having try out matches with WWE and traveling the Mid Atlantic, James is primed for a jump to the top tier of the business. With him already on the radar of the WWE, especially after taking part in WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin’s TV show Broken Skull Challenge; can “The Thorough Bred” destroy the competition much like he did on the football field? Or will his inexperience do him in? Time will tell but he’s quietly a dark horse in this tournament.

 

Jason “The Gift” Kincaid

Kincaid started his in ring career training under the Batten twins in 2003. Working in promotions across PA, NC, TN, and WV he grew a reputation for trying all sorts of creative offensive maneuvers. But it wasn’t unto 2007 that the legend of Jason Kincaid grew. He would go on to debut for the NWA Smoky Mountain promotion in Tennessee. Starting a modern day UNPRECEDENTED run as the Smoky Mountain Heavyweight Champion, he would go on to hold the title for well over 1,000 days! That’s unbelievable in a world of constant change like the pro wrestling business. Kincaid is by far the most accomplished man in the tournament having already traveled the US and Mexico perfecting his craft. One piece of gold hardware he hasn’t won yet is the ECWA Super 8 and he’s hungry to add it to his long list of accomplishments. Can the unorthodox Kincaid once again start a reign of unmatched skill? Or can the other competitors overcome his high risk-high reward wrestling style? He’s easily the defacto favorite to take it home.

 

That’s your first look at this year’s crop of amazing wrestling talent. Still to come are looks at the remaining 5 participants and the 2 SPECIAL ECWA Championship matches that will take place at the Super 8 Tournament show!
