ECWA Super 8 2016 News 12/23/15
Next Super 8 participant announced: A WOLF enters the fray
ECWA is one of the longest running independent wrestling promotions in the country. In the almost 50 years of history, top notch professional wrestling has always been the companies calling card. The men and women who have sacrificed their bodies for the ECWA faithful many times have become house hold names whether it’s been in WWE, TNA, ROH, or even around the world! One of the main reasons for that is the long running Super 8 Tournament… which is coming up on it’s 20 year anniversary! The Super 8 is a one day, single elimination tournament for the much sought after Super 8 trophy. And with victory comes the spoils… all of our winners get national magazine exposure which has often led to bigger and better things! Our winners and participants list reads likes a who’s who of today’s wrestling stars. Names like Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Matt & Jeff Hardy, Low Ki, WWE’s Xavier Woods, and perhaps the biggest name to never win the tournament, former WWE champion Daniel Bryan! How’s that for a lasting legacy? The Super 8 has been copied and replicated dozens of times over the years since the 1997 inaugural show. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery and ECWA is proud of it’s history of innovation!
20 years… that’s a long time for anything to last. So ECWA management wanted to do something special to celebrate this HUGE occasion that the fans would truly enjoy. What innovation come out of this brain storming? It’s been announced that on Saturday April, 23, 2016 it will be an ALL STAR EDITION of the tournament! The only men who will be selected to participate are past winners and participants. That means ANYTHING can happen! ANYONE from the past could be in this year’s tournament. Maybe a chance at redemption for those that fell just short!
Out of this ground breaking news comes the first man announced… ECWA fans should remember him very well… as a matter of fact he was the WINNER OF THE 2015 SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT!
The first entrant was already announced just last week. It was the innovative 2015 Super 8 champion ‘The Gift’ Jason Kincaid. Kincaid will be chasing history as the first back to back Super 8 champion. However, even he couldn’t have foreseen this next entrant.
This man is well known for being a cold, calculated destroyer. He’s one of the HARDEST HITTING MEN IN THE WORLD OF PRO WRESTLING! His legendary brutality almost eclipses his wrestling talent. He Trained in Muay Thai kick boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so it’s easy to see why his strikes easily weaken opponents. He was trained by wrestling legend ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Paul Orndorff and the widely respected Tony Kozinga so his pedigree might be the best we’ve ever seen in an ECWA ring!
He’s a former ROH world heavyweight champion… a 5 time TNA tag team champion… and most notably for the ECWA fans… he was the 2006 SUPER 8 CHAMPION!
He is one half of the legendary tag team THE AMERICAN WOLVES…
He is none other than DAVEY RICHARDS!
Richards has traveled around the globe for almost all of the world’s top promotions over his 11 year wrestling career. One could say it all though that it all started with that amazing victory over former WWE star Charlie Haas in the 2006 Super 8 tournament! Since then, he’s battled almost every single known name in the industry from former WWE champion Seth Rollins to former WWE tag team champions Matt & Jeff, the Hardy Boyz!
Not only is Kincaid chasing history but Richards is as well!
Richards won the 2006 Super 8 tournament which means if he were to win the ALL STAR tournament he’d match Christopher Daniels as the only two men to win TWO Super 8 Tournaments! Who knows what a win could do to elevate the already stellar career of Davey Richards!
This is why this ALL STAR SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT is so intriguing. With all of these men former competitors everyone is hungry to make their mark and steal the spotlight. One of these men will make history come Saturday April 23, 2016!
With the other 6 participants still a mystery, the idea of a tournament with two men like Davey Richards and Jason Kincaid is absolutely mind blowing information that all wrestling fans should be excited about!
This is why ECWA is always on the cutting edge of innovation in the pro wrestling industry… you never know when you’ll see history in the making!
This is two pieces of GROUND BREAKING NEWS that will shake independent wrestling to it’s core! The ALL STAR SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT is going to be the BIGGEST SHOW in independent wrestling history when it’s all said and done, and you can bank on it. Saturday April 23 is a date to mark on your calendar ASAP!
2015 ECWA Super 8 Champion ‘The Gift’ Jason Kincaid is the first entrant. Davey Richards the second entrant. History on the line… who could possibly be the next entrant announced?
If past history is any indication ECWA management is cooking up something spectacular at this very moment! Stay tuned to all ECWA channels for news on ECWA shows and most importantly all news regarding the All Star Super 8 Tournament!
