Wylde defeats Papadon with the Tazmission chokehold to win the ECWA Unified Heavyweight Title!

 

Wylde celebrates with the fans as he finally ends the 560 day title reign of Papadon!

 

 

The ECWA 45th Anniversary Show saw one of the longest heavyweight title reigns on the current pro wrestling scene end at 560 days on Saturday night, as the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) Heavyweight Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde defeated the East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA) Heavyweight Champion “Greek God” Papadon to unify both championships and become thefirst ECWA Unified Heavyweight Champion in history.

 

The match did not start off like the usual technical wrestling match that Papadon’s title defenses have become known for. The two champions started the match with a lot of brawling that spilled into the crowd and around the arena floor as the bad blood between the two steming from WARGAMES in July 2012 was still very fresh in their minds.

 

Once inside the ring, Papadon did control a good portion of the action with Wylde never giving up or staying down and exhibiting his “never say die” attitude more than ever before. At one point Wylde had a very close pinfall attempt when he evaded Papadon’s trademark “Alpha & Omega” (shining wizard) and quickly grabbed him in a cradle for a very close two and a half count.

 

The beginning of the end was when Papadon ripped off the ring turnbuckle exposing the metal. After Papadon attempted the “Wrath of God,” and floating superplex into a piledriver, Wylde countered the piledriver attempt into a hurracarrana that thrusted Papdon head first into the exposed steel. As Papadon took several steps backward dazed, Wylde seized the opportunity to apply a move that he rarely uses, the Kajahajame, aka the Tazmission (Wylde later revelaed that he learned the Tazmission from the master himself at a recent TNA Gutcheck). Senior ECWA referee, John Finegan, is very familar with this move and the damage it can inflict from his ECW days with Taz. Finegan, right on top of the situation, checked the arm of Papadon three times with no response or signs of consciousness and called for the ring bell and declared Chris Wylde the NEW ECWA Unifed Heavyweight Champion!

 

While Wylde celebrated, Anthony Cicco, Papadon’s new personal ring announcer, helped revive the former champion with water. As Papadon came to, he raised his arm believing he won. When he finally realized what happened, he went bezerk, attacking referee John Finegan and threatening ECWA matchmakerJoe Zanolle before security and members of the roster escorted Papadon from ringside.

 

In the ring, Wylde was congratulated by his peers and brought his young daughter in the ring with him and spoke about his long 2 year journey in ECWA, being a Delaware resident and an ECWA fan as a teenager and finally realizing his dream of becoming the ECWA Heavyweight Champion!

 

Following the match, Wylde spoke again backstage while Papadon continued to wreck havoc, claiming he was not pinned, he did not submit and that he wanted a rematch on Oct 6, 2012 in Newark, Delaware at the 2nd annual K-CUP Tag Team Tournament, but this time Papadon has requested, and been granted, 2 referees in this match!

FULL PREVIEW of Sept 15, 2012 45th Anniversary Show “CHAMPIONS COLLIDE!”

1- CHAMPIONS COLLIDE!!! TITLE UNIFICATION MATCH

ECWA Champion “Greek God” Papadon (20-0) vs TWA Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde (16-5)!!!

When current ECWA Heavyweight Champion and 2012 Super 8 Champion “Greek God” Papadon saved and then turned on TWA Heavyweight Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde and the ECWA at WARGAMES on July 14th in Newark, Delaware, it only served to expedite the inevitable ECWA and TWA Title Unification Match!!! Papadon’s motivation, his ego and his insatiable desire to rule the ECWA with an iron fist is without question, while Wylde is not only seeking revenge, but now has possibly his last golden opportunity to prove himself and fulfill his dream of holding the OLDEST Heavyweight Championship in ALL of independent professional wrestling!!! Papadon will be celebrating his 560th day as ECWA Heavyweight Champion on Sept 15th. Will he make it to 561 days? Papadon is also the 2012 ECWA Super 8 Champion, former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion, 2012 Hall of Famer and 2011 ECWA Wrestler of the Year! Or will Chris Wylde, current TWA Heavyweight Champion and a former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion of 11 months, succeed where he failed back in July 2011 and where countless others including Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole, Tony Nese, Aden Chambers, Alex Reynolds, Johnny Silver, Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian and more have failed? Will Wylde, a Delaware resident who as a teenager was an ECWA fan, fulfill his dream to become ECWA Heavyweight Champion and the first Unified Champion or will Papadon add that honor to his already long list of accolades?

Currently in their third title reign as Unified ECWA Tag Team Champions, FUSION DS have been picking up steam since winning the championships from the Midnight Sensations in May in a Loser Leaves ECWA Match with great wins over Bandido Jr & Azrieal and #1 Johnny Silver & Alex Reynolds. Joel Blackhart (fka Joel Goodhart) did not skip a beat after his team lost WARGAMES in July when he declared that the SONS of BLACKHEART were coming to the ECWA to win the ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Titles from FUSION DS! This new team of Armageddon and Anarchy are reportedly the sons of the original Blackhearts, Apocalypse and Destruction, who were managed by Luna Vachon and were the last reigning TWA Tag Team Champions from the original TWA closed in 1992. Goodhart says Armageddon and Anarchy are coming back for the titles that their fathers never lost 20 years ago!

 

Joel Blackhart warns the SONS of BLACKHEART are coming!!!

 

FUSION DS, Damian Dragon & Matt Saigon, respond to Joel Blackhart!!!

 

Here is a match with the Original Blackhearts (Apocalypse and Destruction) vs the Rock and Roll Express from Memphis. Managed by Luna Vachon in TWA, they were the last TWA Tag Team Champions when the TWA closed in 1992. Now, 20 years later the SONS of BLACKHEART (Armageddon and Anarchy) w/ Joel Blackhart are coming to the ECWA on Sept 15 in Newark, DE to reclaim the ECWA & TWA Tag Team Titles from FUSION DS that their fathers never lost 20 years ago!!!!!

 

3-TOSS THE BOSS FAN PARTIICIPATION LUMBERJACK MATCH (w/ the FANS as LUMBERJACKS)*

“French-Rainbow Connection” Cole Callaway & ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion Mr. Ooh La La w/ Jim Shorts vs. “The Boss” Mike Tartaglia & Ricky “the Model” Martinez w/ Magnum and Gus Grand!!!

At WARGAMES in July, “the BOSS” walked out of his title match with Mr. Ooh La La and was intentionally counted out by special guest referee Cole Callaway. Following the loss ECWA Matchmaker Joe Zanolle informed the BOSS and Martinez and Ooh La La and Callaway that they would meeting in a tag team match at the 45th Anniversary Show in a LUMBERJACK MATCH to make sure the BOSS and Martinez do not flee the ring, but unlike any other LUMBERJACK MATCH in ECWA history, the FANS would serve as lumberjacks in this tag team encounter!

 

ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion Mr. Ooh La La with Coach Jim Shorts and Cole Callaway CAN’T wait till the tag team TOSS the BOSS FANS PARTICIPATION MATCH against “The BOSS” Mike Tartaglia & Ricky “the Model” Martinez w/ Magnum and Gus Grand!!!

“The BOSS” Mike Tartaglia confronts “Mrs. Ooh La La???”

 

Take a look here, it happened in TWA once before in 1991 w/ Terry Funk w/ Bulldog Brower v Jerry Lawler!!! And yes, that is ECWA senior referee John Finegan in the ring and the nefarious Joel Blackhart ring announcing!!! It will be the BOSS Michael Tartaglia & Ricky the Model vs. Mr. Ooh La La & Cole Callaway!!! All you have to do is when you buy or pickup your prepaid tix at the door, enter your name in the drawing. You need to be 18 years of age and sign a waiver if you are selected. Fans will be chosen at random at 7 PM bell time, so make sure you get there at 6 PM when the doors open. All selected will report to the bleachers next to the dressing room area at intermission for a meeting with John Finegan and myself to go over some guidelines. DONT MISS THIS CHANCE OF A LIFETIME to TOSS THE BOSS!!! BE THERE!!!!!

 

4- FIRST TIME EVER!!!

Grand Slam Champion Aden Chambers vs. Beautiful Bobby Shields w/ Joel Blackhart

Two staples of ECWA meet for the FIRST TIME EVER one on one inside the ring at the 45th Anniversary Show, CHAMPIONS COLLIDE as Aden Chambers takes on Beautiful Bobby Shields!!! Chambers has looked better than ever since coming back from injury, while Shields has developed quite the mean streak during his time with Blackheart. Also, considering both faced each other in WARGAMES and both spent time training at TEAM TAZ Dojo, this is going to be one of the most evenly contested and exciting matches of the night!

 

5- Making his ECWA Debut, Tony Mamaluke vs. Josh Daniels w/ Joel Blackhart

Tony Mamaluke is anxiously awaiting his ECWA debut on Sept 15, 2012 in Newark, Delaware at the 45th Anniversary Show. Mamaluke, often underrated yet well known for his FBI exploits with tag team partner Little Guido/Nunzio, feels as though he has something to prove as a singles competitor and plans on using the ECWA as his platform. His opponent Josh Daniels, a member of Blackheart, is arguably one of the top technical wrestlers in the sport today. When you factor in Daniels’ mean streak and his penchant for submission moves, this is going be a memorable match for sure at the 45th Anniversary of the ECWA. Take a look here at Mamaluke and the many moves in his arsenal (also many submissions like Daniels) and you will see the apple has not fallen very far from the tree of his mentor, “the Man of a Thousand Holds” Dean Malenko!

Tony Mamaluke debuts against Josh Daniels!

 

6- Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian vs. Danny E w/ Magnum and Gus Grand

Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian is returning from a successful tour of Europe looking to apply some of his new found knowledge and experience to continue his climb up the ladder in ECWA. Danny E is quite possibly the most underrated member of the ECWA locker room. A former Super 8 competitor, Tag Champion and Mid-Atlantic Champion, Danny is going to be very tough to beat especially with the ever present Magnum and Gus Grand lurking in his corner!

 

7- Making his ECWA debut, NAPALM BOMB vs. CUJO the Hellhound

NAPALM BOMB, making his ECWA debut, is looking to make an impact and in a big way at the 45th Anniversary Show. NAPALM boasts the size and talent, and surprising agility for a man his size. CUJO a veteran of many years knows every trick in the book and will make sure that NAPALM BOMB gets his proper introduction to the ECWA ring!

ECWA TURNS 45 TODAY AUGUST 27, 2012

Today, Monday, August 27, 2012, marks the 45th Anniversary of the East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA).

The ECWA, established in 1967 by founder and promoter of many years Jim Kettner, is the oldest independent professional wrestling company in the United States today! The ECWA was acquired by Michael Tartaglia, the current owner and promoter, in August 2010. At the time Tartaglia was the owner and promoter of the revived Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) in NJ and PA. Since that time the TWA has been absorbed by ECWA with the tag team championships having been unified and the heavyweight championship scheduled to be on Sept 15, 2012.
The ECWA has spent these 45 years presenting top quality professional wrestling events for the entire family. During that time, the ECWA has seen many other promotions come and go yet ECWA remains constant as one of the most respected, reliable and reputable independent pro wrestling companies today. 
 
The ECWA is the home of …
 
– the ECWA Heavyweight Championship, the oldest independent pro wrestling heavyweight championship in the United States which has been held by national and international stars before they became famous such as “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels, Christian and Amazing Red. The current champion is “GREEK GOD” Papadon.
 
– the Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament, which was established in 1997. The tournament is the oldest and first of its kind in independent pro wrestling in the United States and has been imitated by many other promotions over the years. The tournament gave many of today’s greats their first big break and exposure on the East Coast, as the tournament is covered in-depth annually by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) magazine and its sister publications. Some of the many stars to have passed through and emerged from the Super 8 are Low Ki (2001 winner), Christopher Daniels (2000 & 2004 winner), Austin Aries, Daniel Bryan (fka Bryan Danielson, America Dragon), AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Davey Richards (2006 winner) and countless others. The 2012 Super 8 winner was “GREEK GOD” Papadon.
 
– the ECWA Annual K-CUP (Kangaroo Cup) Tag Team Tournament, which was established in 2011. The tournament was created as a celebration of tag team wrestling and a tribute to one of the earliest and most influential tag teams in the history of pro wrestling in the United States, the Fabulous Kangaroos (Al Costello with a variety of different partners through his career, but arguably the most notable was Roy Hefferan). The inaugural tournament was won by the “Midnight Sensations” Chris Rockwell & Sam Shields. Other teams that competed were FUSION DS, the Logan Brothers, The Flatliners, Bandido Jr & Azrieal, Danny E & Kenny Royal, Johnny Silver & Alex Reynolds and All Money I$ Legal.
 
With its home base in Newark, Delaware, and now expanding to other venues in New Jersey, ECWA has presented 7 events in 2012 and plans on presenting another 6 events the remainder of the year.
 
In 2013, the ECWA plans on presenting 15-20 events.
 
The ECWA is the home of some of the best free agent professional wrestlers in the United States…
 
ECWA Heavyweight Champion “GREEK GOD” Papadon is UNDEFEATED in ECWA at 20-0. Today marks Papadon’s 541st day as ECWA Champion and he has been the most dominate ECWA Champion in history. At the time of his next title defense on Sept 15, 2012, he will have been champion for 560 days! Papadon was also the winner of the prestigious 2012 16th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament, 2011 ECWA Wrestler of the Year Award as chosen by the fans of ECWA, a former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion and was inducted into the ECWA Hall of Fame in 2012.

TWA Heavyweight Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde has just completed his 4th month as champion. He was a semi-finalist in the 2010 ECWA Super 8 and he held the ECWA Mid-Atlantic Championship for 11 months from Dec 2010 – Nov 2011.
 
ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion Mr. Ooh La La w/ Coach Jim Shorts has been a part of ECWA for 22 YEARS!!! He was inducted into the ECWA Hall of Fame in 1996. Recently, he began hearing the cheers of the fans for the first time in his storied ECWA career when he stood up to the evil owner of the ECWA “the BOSS” Mike Tartaglia, whom he is now embroiled in a feud with. Regardless of whether he was a villain or a hero, Mr. Ooh La La is truly one of a kind and a beloved member of the ECWA roster by the fans, the locker room and management. Mr. Ooh La La won the Mid-Atlantic Championship in June 2012 and is the ONLY person to ever receive an ECWA Lifetime Achievement Award for all his contributions and achievements over the course of his 20+ year career.
 
ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Champions “FUSION DS” Damian Dragon & Matt Saigon are currently enjoying their third reign as tag team champions. FUSION defeated “Best Around” Bruce Maxwell & TJ Cannon for the TWA Tag Team Titles in Jan 2011. In May 2011, they won and unified the vacant ECWA Tag Team Titles with the TWA Tag Team Titles in a match with the “Midnight Sensations” Chris Rockwell & Sam Shields. Since that time they have traded the tag team titles with the Midnight Sensations several times and have held the tag team title for 16 out of the 21 months between Jan 2011 to present. FUSION also recently won the 2012 Samoan Cup Tag Team Tournament and were ranked the 10th best team in wrestling by PWI magazine several times.

Here is a great review of “Greek God” Papadon vs. Adam Cole from ECWA Raising the Bar, June 2 by Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com…

“I had the chance to check out the recent Adam Cole vs. Papadon bout promoted by the ECWA in Delaware and it was off the charts awesome. I really think that Papadon is one of the most underrated talents going right now, period and expect he’s going to be a name that suddenly is an overnight success after years of working to make it happen. He and Cole had awesome chemistry and some awesome drama. Well worth going out of your way to see it.”

TITLE UNIFICATION – PAPADON vs. WYLDE II Sept 15, 2012 (video)

When current ECWA Heavyweight Champion and 2012 Super 8 Champion “Greek God” Papadon (20-0)* saved and then turned on TWA Heavyweight Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde (16-5)and the ECWA at WARGAMES on July 14th in Newark, Delaware, it only served to expedite the inevitable ECWA and TWA Title Unification Match!!! Papadon’s motivation, his ego and his insatiable desire to rule the ECWA with an iron fist is without question, while Wylde is not only seeking revenge, but now has possibly his last golden opportunity to prove himself and fulfill his dream of holding the OLDEST Heavyweight Championship in ALL of independent professional wrestling!!! Papadon will be celebrating his 560th day as ECWA Heavyweight Champion on Sept 15th. Will he make it to 561 days? Papadon is also the 2012 ECWA Super 8 Champion, former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion, 2012 Hall of Famer and 2011 ECWA Wrestler of the Year! Or will Chris Wylde, current TWA Heavyweight Champion and a former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion of 11 months, succeed where he failed back in July 2011 and where countless others including Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole, Tony Nese, Aden Chambers, Alex Reynolds, Johnny Silver, Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian and more have failed? Will Wylde, a Delaware resident who as a teenager was an ECWA fan, fulfill his dream to become ECWA Heavyweight Champion and the first Unified Champion or will Papadon add that honor to his already long list of accolades?

Be there for the 45th Anniversary of the ECWA – “CHAMPIONS COLLIDE” – to see the historic ECWA & TWA Unification Title Match on Sat, Sept 15, 2012 in Newark, Delaware, doors open 6PM. For tix call 609.220.5598 or email info@ecwaprowrestling.com
