ECWA Heavyweight Championship match at the Super 8 this Saturday!

ECWA Heavyweight Championship Match at Super 8 Tournament

Attention to all indy wrestling fans! The BIGGEST event in independent wrestling is just 4 DAYS AWAY! On Saturday April 29, 2017 it’s the next edition of the most widely known single elimination tournament in pro wrestling history… the ECWA Super 8 Tournament! The history behind this tournament is well documented… it’s been covered extensively in PWI magazine for years and former WWE Champion and Super 8 Finalist Daniel Bryan discussed it in detail in his book ‘Yes: My Improbably Journey to the Main Event of Wrestlemania’. The men who have competed in this tournament have gone on to main event companies all over the world from WWE to TNA to ROH and even New Japan! It’s a heritage and lineage that’s never lost on any of the 8 men who are chosen by ECWA management every year.

However, huge news NOT involving the 8 men or the tournament itself has been announced! As per tradition, there is a bonus match scheduled for the night of the Super 8… And it will be for the ECWA Heavyweight Championship! The bonus matches are almost always used to showcase ECWA talent that you see every month… and this will be no different!

Azrieal is the NEW ECWA Heavyweight Champion! He’s the man who finally ended the dominating reign of Sean Carr just last month at Spring Battle. His celebration has been well earned. But it might be short lived… that match at Spring Battle was a triple threat. Azrieal vs. Sean Carr vs. Chris Wylde. Wylde almost demanded to be included in the match… showing a new, vicious, almost vindictive attitude towards ECWA fans and management.

He feels slighted and ignored by management. He feels despite his enduring loyalty to the company that he should have been given the championship opportunity by HIMSELF. With him being the chosen man to end Carr’s reign…

But Azrieal was given all the chances to win ‘Big Red’…

And so it seems Wylde has turned his back on everyone and is out for himself! During the triple threat, he didn’t come out for his entrance; Seemingly abandoning the chance he was given the match went on as scheduled. Halfway through, the ‘Heartkiller’ entered the arena and would go on an ALL OUT ASSAULT on Azrieal, completely ignoring Carr in the process. After making his statement, he left almost as suddenly as he came.

No one knows why except Chris Wylde…

Obviously, the new champion isn’t thrilled with those actions. Azrieal has asked for and been granted a match with Chris Wylde to settle the score… and where else better to do it than the Super 8 Tournament show?

So it’s official: Azrieal WILL DEFEND the ECWA Heavyweight Championship against Chris Wylde.

No words need to be said… these two men will tear each other apart!

Will Azrieal’s reign be short lived? Will the PCA come into play? Will Azrieal once again steal championship hopes away from another ECWA mainstay?

Is Chris Wylde out to make a statement or is he looking to steal ‘Big Red’ away? Will he show why ECWA management should have made him ‘the chosen one’?

In only 4 days we find out that answer!

ECWA 21st Annual Super 8 Tournament next weekend 4/29

ECWA Super 8 Tournament just 10 days away

 

            Attention to all indy wrestling fans! The BIGGEST event in independent wrestling is just TEN days away! Saturday April 29, 2017 it’s the next edition of the most widely known single elimination tournament in pro wrestling history… the ECWA Super 8 Tournament! The history behind this tournament is well documented… it’s been covered extensively in PWI magazine for years and former WWE Champion and Super 8 Finalist Daniel Bryan discussed it in detail in his book ‘Yes: My Improbably Journey to the Main Event of Wrestlemania’. The men who have competed in this tournament have gone on to main event companies all over the world from WWE to TNA to ROH and even New Japan! It’s a heritage and lineage that’s never lost on any of the 8 men who are chosen by ECWA management every year.

 

This year the tournament has gone back to its roots! We’ve chosen some of the most hard hitting, high flying, and talented young wrestlers in the United States today. The field of 8 is impressive to say the least… we’ll go over the field briefly so you know who’s battling for the coveted trophy and the right to write his name in wrestling history forever:

 

Lio RushRush is one of the most widely known high flyers in the business today. He’s fought almost all the top names on the indies. He’s even won the ROH Top Prospect tournament… needless to say he’s probably the odds on favorite to win it all.

 

‘Mr 500’ Timmy Lou Retton- Retton isn’t your typical Super 8 participant. With his size and strength no one could expect him to be able to fly around the ring like a luchador. But he does! He’ll be one to watch as he has a definitive advantage over the field.

 

‘Mr Excellence’ Brandon Scott- Scott’s star is on the rise! He recently appeared for WWE’s 205 live, reserved for the best cruiserweights in wrestling. With his technical/mat abilities he’ll look to out finesse the other 7 competitors with his superior ring intelligence.

 

‘The Human Rocket’ LSG- LSG was trained at the world famous Monster Factory. That means he’ll be technically sound on top of his amazing aerial ability. How will the others react when the they face a man who’s willing to put his body on the line just to win?

 

‘The Bad Boy’ Joey Janela- Known for his cocky attitude, Janela is one of wrestling’s best kept secrets. Able to match speed, strength, and technical ability with just about anyone he’ll be a fan favorite. Doesn’t hurt he’s just as entertaining with his antics as his wrestling.

 

Zombiie King- The son of a famous lucha wrestler… Zombiie King is absolutely silky in the ring. He’ll put on the most impressive showing through the air out of the field of 8. With his devastating blows he’ll gain the backing of the crowd. Dark horse candidate to take it all!

 

‘The High Top Fading, Hip Hop Parading’ Anthony Bennett- Bennett is the least known in the this year’s class. However, he’s also a Monster Factory product. He’s going to hit hard and take to the air to shock and awe everyone! It’s no mistake so early in his career he was chosen for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic.

 

‘Chainsaw’ Joe Gacy- The current CZW Champion has broken out in a big way in 2017. His power wrestling is some of the most impressive on the indies. Gacy’s mantra is keep on attacking to get to the win… an interesting dynamic in a field full of smaller high flyers.

 

There you have it a look at the field of 8! This might be the first year since the New Era began that there is almost no chance to accurately predict a winner. Any of the men listed above can win… all of them are on the cusp of being the next BIG wrestling star! The tournament will be the loudest and most unpredictable event you’ll see all year from ANY WRESTLING COMPANY! The cliché “Can’t Miss” doesn’t even accurately describe it.

 

And even better… there has been 2 BONUS MATCHES ADDED! These non tournament matches are often added featuring some of ECWA’s top talents. It’s become a fan favorite tradition! The 2 matches?

 

ECWA Heavyweight Championship: Azrieal ( C ) w/ AJ Pan vs. ‘Heartkiller’ Chris Wylde- Azrieal finally took down Sean Carr last month and won ‘Big Red’ fair and square. However, during the match Chris Wylde brutally attacked Az… and ONLY him. According to the ’Heartkiller’ himself it’s because he feels ECWA management favored Az and replaced him as the token man to take down Carr. In this huge co-main event, Azrieal makes his first title defense!

 

ECWA Tag Team Championship: Pan Corp Agency ( C ) vs. Extreme Rednecks (Chuck & Kyle Payne) NO DISQUALIFICATION- The PCA and Rednecks have had a heated feud going on for months now… with the Rednecks actually getting the better of the champions. But every time they come in for the kill the PCA finds a way to weasel out of it! This time there is no running… and there is NO RULES! Can the Rednecks win gold again?

 

And there you have it folks. All the information you need for the Super 8 Tournament. It’s going to be quite the spectacle and a packed house! Join the fun and see history unfold before your eyes live in person! Here’s all the rest of the information you’ll need:
