Third entrant in the ECWA Super 8 announced: A GOD
ECWA is one of the longest running independent wrestling
promotions in the country. In the almost 50 years of history, top notch
professional wrestling has always been the companies calling card. The men and
women who have sacrificed their bodies for the ECWA faithful many times have
become house hold names whether it’s been in WWE, TNA, ROH, or even around the
world! One of the main reasons for that is the long running Super 8 Tournament…
which is coming up on it’s 20 year anniversary! The Super 8 is a one day,
single elimination tournament for the much sought after Super 8 trophy. And
with victory comes the spoils… all of our winners get national magazine
exposure which has often led to bigger and better things! Our winners and
participants list reads likes a who’s who of today’s wrestling stars. Names
like Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Matt & Jeff Hardy, Low Ki, WWE’s
Xavier Woods, and perhaps the biggest name to never win the tournament, former
WWE champion Daniel Bryan! How’s that for a lasting legacy? The Super 8 has
been copied and replicated dozens of times over the years since the 1997
inaugural show. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery and ECWA is
proud of it’s history of innovation!
20 years… that’s a long time for anything to last. So
ECWA management wanted to do something special to celebrate this HUGE occasion that the fans would truly
enjoy. What innovation come out of this brain storming? It’s been announced
that on Saturday April, 23, 2016 it will be an ALL STAR EDITION of the
tournament! The only men who will be selected to participate are past winners
and participants. That means ANYTHING can happen! ANYONE from the past could be
in this year’s tournament. Maybe a chance at redemption for those that fell
Two men out of the field of eight have been announced…
2015 Super 8 champion ‘The Gift’ Jason Kincaid… 5 time TNA tag team champion
& the 2006 Super 8 champion ‘The American Wolf’ Davey Richards… and now the
third man has been officially announced.
This participant should be well known to the ECWA
faithful. He ruled the company from 2010-2014. And by ruled we mean he
DOMINATED almost every single man he stepped into a ring with. He’s ruthless
hatred of his opponents made him so deadly it took almost 2 years for him to be
defeated in ECWA. He’s an ECWA Hall of Famer, a former ECWA Mid Atlantic
Champion, the LONGEST REIGNING ECWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IN ECWA HISTORY… at
over 500 days as champion… and the 2012 Super 8 Champion.
He is known other than the ‘GREEK GOD’ PAPADON!
Papadon is a savvy ring veteran that has traveled all
over the country working on his craft. Often times, he is in what many consider
the match of the night or even match of the year in whatever promotion he
wrestles in. His beautiful blend of technical, speed, and power wrestling has
made him one of the most formidable wrestlers in the world for well over a
decade. He’s destroyed WWE stars like Goldust and even chased the legendary NWA
Heavyweight title. Papadon is a wrestler’s wrestler and his knowledge of the
business has been his most valuable asset in such a long, successful career.
Papadon is etched into Super 8 history… not only did he
win the 2012 Super 8 tournament but he came within inches of being the 2013
Super 8 as well. This will be his THIRD Super 8 tournament. So it only seems
fitting he’s the third man announced in the field of eight.
Just like the men announced before him he is also chasing
down history. Papadon can become the second man to win TWO SUPER 8 TOURNAMENTS.
Even more, he’s only the third man to appear in more than two Super 8’s. The
other two? One named Tommaso Ciampa who competed in 3 Super 8’s before he
finally won it in 2011. And Christopher Daniels who is the ONLY MAN to win 2
tournaments. How’s that for chasing history? He can win his second Super 8
championship and ALSO be the second man to win the tournament on his third try!
Three entrants down and ALL THREE are FORMER WINNERS OF
THE SUPER 8!
This is why this
ALL STAR SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT is so intriguing. With all of these men former
competitors everyone is hungry to make their mark and steal the spotlight. One
of these men will make history come Saturday April 23, 2016!
With the other 5 participants still a mystery, the idea
of a tournament with three men like Davey Richards, Jason Kincaid, and Papadon
is absolutely mind blowing information that all wrestling fans should be
This is why ECWA is always on the cutting edge of
innovation in the pro wrestling industry… you never know when you’ll see
history in the making!
This is GROUND BREAKING NEWS that will shake independent
wrestling to it’s core! The ALL STAR SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT is going to be the
BIGGEST SHOW in independent wrestling history when it’s all said and done, and
you can bank on it. Saturday April 23 is a date to mark on your calendar ASAP!
2015 ECWA Super 8 Champion ‘The Gift’ Jason Kincaid is
the first entrant. Davey Richards the second entrant. History on the line… who
could possibly be the next entrant announced?
If past history is any indication ECWA management is
cooking up something spectacular at this very moment! Stay tuned to all ECWA
