Damian Dragon was announced as the first competitor entered in the 2013 Super 8 tournament at the December 1st 2011 event after an unsuccessful attempt to capture his 4th ECWA Unified tag team title reign against The ECWA Dream Team. A very emotional Dragon was met with an amazing ovation from fans in attendance as they were extremely vocal in support of him being long overdue for the honor. Dragon a 17 year veteran, has chased this opportunity his entire career since he read about the first tournament in an issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Dragon though an Northeast wrestling mainstay is most known for his tenure in TWA & ECWA as part of the tag team Fusion D.S. with now former partner Matt Saigon. The two strangers instantly meshed well saw unforeseen success in both promotions that made them dominant within their division. But now Damian Dragon begins 2013 where he started-as a singles wrestler. Something he has faired well with in his past facing opponents such as Colin Delany, Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole amongst many others. With a hybrid style an “all heart” approach to his wrestling, Dragon has seen his fair share of championships. One of them was capturing his first Heavyweight Championship in another promotion by defeating ECWA legend & current ROH Star Steve Corino. Despite his go against the system approach in ECWA, fans recognized and appreciated the skill he possesses. Some felt there was untapped potential and he needed to strike out on his own. Now Damian Dragon who is by far the most experienced man in the Super 8 playing field will be using every of his wrestling experience as well as an extensive karate background to make his mark in ECWA history.
