Anthony Bennett is the number 7 entrant in the ECWA 21st Annual Super 8 Tournament

Former WWE CWC competitor announced as next entrant in 2017 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. These men weren’t household names when they competed… just young, hungry wrestlers looking for a chance. You know these men AFTER the fact… that’s the story of the Super 8.

 

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 6 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 be the next big star on the list above.

The next entrant is an interesting one…. A quirky, flamboyant young wrestler who loves his hair, pro wrestling, and working out… in that exact order! This smiling high flyer is one to watch on the indy scene… and now he gets his chance!

 

THE SEVENTH ENTRANT IN THE 2017 ECWA SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT IS ‘THE HIGHTOP FADING, HIP HOP PARADING” ANTHONY BENNETT!

 

           

Bennett is one of the more interesting entrants in this year’s field of 8. Training out of the legendary Monster Factory in 2013, men like ‘Pretty Boy’ Larry Sharpe, Danny Cage, and ECW Originals Bilvis Wesley and The Blue Meanie have shaped Bennett into a technically sound wrestler who loves to take to the air for huge impact maneuvers. Of course, he also has a tendency to show off quite a bit making him a fun competitor to watch in and out of the ring. He even comes to the ring with light up glasses for his eyes and hair! With silky chain wrestling skills that are as beautiful to behold as his leaps off the top rope it’s easy to see why he’s quickly rising up the ranks of the US’s top cruiserweight stars.

 

In fact, many wrestling fans will remember him from his appearance in WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic tournament, which sported 32 of the world’s biggest up and coming high flying wrestlers. He made quite an impression wrestling against current WWE Raw star and former Super 8 competitor Tony Nese. Now he’s looking to breakout and wrestle all over the country, not just for his home at the Monster Factory. ECWA management recognized his obvious talent and immediately chose as entrant number 7.

 

Now he’ll get the chance to showcase his charisma and speed as he takes flight in the ECWA Super 8 Tournament! He could win this tournament and show why he should have won the CWC!

 

Anthony Bennett is out for all the glory and will gladly dance his way into the hearts of wrestling fans everywhere!

 

Can the hightop hair hoist the Super 8 trophy?

 

The Super 8 Tournament will be HIGH IMPACT this year!

 

Needless to say this is HUGE news for upcoming tournament in April! Stay tuned for more entrant announcements and even bonus matches being added as the weeks go by and we get closer and closer to the date!

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 5 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. Someone looking to show off their skill…

 

The man they chose has no problem showing off… has no problem saying he’s the best high flyer in the business… and he has no problem taking any risk to ensure you remember his name.

 

THE SIXTH ENTRANT IN THE 2017 ECWA SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT IS ‘THE HUMAN ROCKET’ LSG!

 

            LSG is one of the most electrifying, exciting wrestlers on the planet today. Getting his training out of the world famous Monster Factory as well as the respected Ring of Honor Dojo, he’s made a name for himself being one of the best all around wrestlers in the business today. He’s well traveled already working for companies like ROH, MCW, ACE, C4, and Beyond Wrestling. His powerful personality gains him almost instant fan appreciation and he’ll be one to watch in this tournament.

 

A brief look at any highlight video of LSG will show you what he brings to the table… as the ROH Dojo has produced some of the best wrestlers in the world and he’s no different. With a creative mixture of silky high impact attacks, he utilizes the ropes more than any wrestler on the planet doing all kinds of flips and dives onto his opponents… a front flip flying elbow… and his patented 450 splash all make him quite possibly the best kept secret in pro wrestling.

 

Needless to say, LSG will not settle for second place! He’ll look to steal the show and take the Super 8 by storm!

 

All of the other men in the tournament who take to the air have officially been put on notice… one of the best high flyers in ROH… or anywhere for that matter… is looking for a gold trophy…

 

AND HE MIGHT JUST GET IT!

 

The Super 8 Tournament will be HIGH IMPACT this year!

 

Needless to say this is HUGE news for upcoming tournament in April! Stay tuned for more entrant announcements and even bonus matches being added as the weeks go by and we get closer and closer to the date!

Bad Boy Joey Janela is the 5th entrant in the 21st ECWA Super 8 Tournament on April 29

Entrant number 5 chosen for the 2017 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.

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 4 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. Someone looking to show off if you will…

 

And they found a man who’s brash… outspoken… capable of doing AND saying almost anything at any time…

 

THE FIFTH ENTRANT IN THE 2017 ECWA SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT IS ‘THE BAD BOY’ JOEY JANELA!

 

            Janela is one of those young, incredibly talented guys who had quite the interesting start to his career. Lying about his age so he could wrestle on a random indy show, he almost learned wrestling on the fly…. Literally. However, it’s during this time period when he would garner his legendary reputation that still follows him to this day. His habit of being a cocky, arrogant, almost insufferable person caused him to not be a huge favorite in many locker rooms. No gimmicks. That was Joey Janela in a nutshell!

 

BUT… as he grew as a performer and learned wrestling he turned that hate into his now persona that’s taking him to all kinds of new heights! Dubbing himself ‘The Bad Boy’ he’s still as cocky and arrogant but only to the fans and opponents that cross his path. Working for companies like CZW, House of Glory, PWS, NWS, and TONS more he’s developing a huge fan following.

 

Able to fly like a cruiserweight but hit as hard as anyone, Janela’s offense is devastating… quick hitting… and effective to take down opponents who are often times distracted by his antics. On top of that, he’s willing to do almost anything… from jumping off tables, roofs, ladders, and turnbuckles… to defeat an opponent. The fans love him… and love to hate him!

 

This adds a unique twist to this year’s Super 8. A guy who’s bite is just as good if not BETTER than his bark!

 

It’s easy to see how a guy who loves to show off like Joey Janela can steal all the spotlight for himself and hoist the Super 8 trophy!

 

The Super 8 Tournament just might be BAD this year!

 

Needless to say this is HUGE news for upcoming tournament in April! Stay tuned for more entrant announcements and even bonus matches being added as the weeks go by and we get closer and closer to the date!
