20th Annual ECWA Super 8 4th Participant announced: A savior out for redemption

Next Super 8 entrant announced; A Savior out for


       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
just short!


It’s those stories of redemption that fueled this next
participant being chosen as the fourth entrant in the All Star Super 8
Tournament… as a matter of fact he fell just short in the 2014 Super 8 Tournament…
losing in the finals to eventual champion Matt Cross.


The fourth entrant is the brutal ‘SOUTHERN SAVIOR’ JOHN


Skyler is a throwback to the old Southern traditions in
pro wrestling. His technical prowess is well documented but then again so is
his almost cold, calculated brutality. Hailing from the Carolinas where
showmanship is as prevalent as toughness… his calling card is his toughness and
it’s made him almost unstoppable as he travels all over perfecting his craft.
Skyler’s loss in the 2014 Super 8 finals was devastating and all it’s done is
make him a better wrestler. That does NOT bode well for the other three men
already announced as participants. He’s angry and out for revenge! While the
other participants are more accomplished, Skyler is on the rise! He’s appeared
on WWE TV in the past and recently appeared on the NXT brand several times
recently with his friend and tag team partner Cory Hollis (himself a Super 8


The proof is in the pudding! Skyler is one of pro wrestling’s
fastest rising stars and this tournament is now his mission… he will seek to ‘TRAMPLE
THE WEAK.. A moniker or catch phrase if you will describing his desire to
absolutely maim every man he comes into contact with en route to the tallest
mountain tops in wrestling!

John Skyler is out for redemption! Last time, he gave it
his all and lost to Matt Cross. This makes him the first man entered that HAS
NOT won a Super 8 before. That fact could make him the most dangerous as he
certainly won’t rest on his laurels.


Can he walk in and steal the spotlight?


A win on Saturday April 23 will cement him a place in
independent pro wrestling history and certainly make every top company in the
world take even more notice of his immense talents. Needless to say, this
tournament is MUST WIN for the Southern Savior.


All this is why the 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 4 participants still a mystery, the idea
of a tournament with men like Davey Richards, Papadon, Jason Kincaid, and now
John Skyler is absolutely mind blowing information that all wrestling fans
should be excited about!


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. Mark the date on your calendar and get tickets ASAP!


History is on the line… but 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
channels for news on ECWA shows and most importantly all news regarding the All
Star Super 8 Tournament!
