Third entrant announced for the ECWA Super 8
ECWA has been around for almost 50 years now… half a century of top notch wrestling put on by some of the world’s best wrestlers. A company that lasts that long has to keep innovating for the future… and innovate it did back in 1997 when former ECWA owner Jim Kettner invented the Super 8 Tournament. Originally, it was to crown an ECWA TV Championship, a now defunct championship. But the buzz behind the performers’ showing created massive buzz in the indy circuit, especially picking up PWI Magazine’s interest and coverage. And so it grew into a phenomenon! Wrestlers from all across the country begged and fought for the chance to be among the chosen eight. A good showing, and more importantly a win, in the tournament almost guarantees national coverage. Most of the past competitors went on to HUGE things in the wrestling industry whether it was in WWE, WCW, ROH, or even Japan.
Some of the notable names that have competed in or won the Super 8 Tournament:
-WWE NXT star Austin Aries
-Former WWE Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan
-International Superstar Low Ki
-ROH and TNA star Christopher Daniels
-IWGP Jr Tag Team Champion Rocky Romero
-Former WWE Tag Team Champions Jeff AND Matt Hardy
-Former WWE Tag Team Champion Brian Kendrick
-ROH Champion Adam Cole
-WWE NXT Tag Team Champion Tommaso Ciampa
And that’s literally just barely a list of the amazing names that all wrestling fans know and love that have competed under the ECWA banner at the Super 8 Tournament.
With that in mind, this is year 21 of the famous single elimination tournament! ECWA management wanted to make a huge splash with fresh, young talent competing for all the glory. The search didn’t go very far before they found exactly the kind of athletes and wrestlers that embodies what the Super 8 stands for.
With two men already chosen ECWA management took a look around the Northeast indy scene for a wrestler waiting for his chance to break out… to finally show what he’s worth.
And they found that man…
THE THIRD ENTRANT IN THE 2017 ECWA SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT IS ‘MR. EXCELLENCE’ BRANDON SCOTT!
Brandon Scott is a 10 year veteran in the wrestling business who’s primed for his break out moment. He was trained by John Rambo at the famous House of Pain debuting in 2006.… a school known it’s hard hitting mentality. Since then he’s became a top contender for almost every company he’s entered. Whether it’s WXW, VCW, or most notably MCW he’s won championship gold everywhere and he’s ready for his chance to shine on the biggest stage in indy wrestling.
Why is he ready?
His ring ability is second to none and is quite a handful to deal with for his opponents… he can take to the top rope and fly with the best high flyers or take it to the mat with his incredible technical prowess. He’s what you might call a ‘jack of all trades’ wrestler capable of anything. Particularly impressive is his 360 twisting neck breaker off the turnbuckle that comes out of nowhere. His old school approach to wrestling has won him praise from fans his peers in the locker room.
Brandon Scott’s moniker is ‘Mr. Excellence’ which goes to show you what his expectations are of himself and his performance in the ring! In his mind there is NO ONE BETTER THAN HIM!
Easy to see how a man with that kind of mentality can steal the show at the Super 8.
Needless to say this is HUGE news for upcoming tournament in April! Stay tuned for more entrant announcements and even bonus matchs being added as the weeks go by and we get closer and closer to the date!
