ECWA Super 8 Tournament News February 3, 2016
Fifth participant announced for Super 8: A champ 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!
Four participants have been announced… 2015 champion Jason ’The Gift’ Kincaid, former ECWA champion and 2012 winner ’Greek God’ Papadon, 2014 Super 8 Finalist ’Southern Savior’ John Skyler, and TNA star- 2006 Super 8 champion ’The Lone Wolf’ Davey Richards.
And now we have the FIFTH man to enter the fray!
He’s battled some of the very best in professional wrestling in promotions like 2cw, Xcite wrestling, and lately MCW but the ECWA universe knows this man very, very well. He’s a former ECWA tag team champion and the CURRENT ECWA Heavyweight Champion… he is the ‘HYBRID’ SEAN CARR!
Carr is as well known for his loud mouth as he is his wrestling prowess. Make no mistake though… he has the power to match almost any men in the business while also having the speed to fly around the ring like a luchador. He can go blow for blow with almost ANYONE! When you think of Sean Carr one word comes to mind… resourceful. He is one of the hardest men to defeat and rarely misses one of his opponents weaknesses. Carr presents and interesting challenge to the other participants. With his uncanny ability to talk his way under any opponents skin… could an opportunity to steal the Super 8 trophy present itself out of anger? It surely will be an interesting side note to watch during the tournament!
For those that don’t remember, Carr was a participant in the 2015 Super 8 Tournament as well. Only one other time did a man enter the tournament and lose; than the following year win the Super 8 trophy. Last year his performance was said to be almost show stealing and you can bet that he’s hungry to duplicate that performance and STEAL the spotlight from the 7 other men!
That 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 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!
ECWA Heavyweight Champion Sean Carr is the fifth participant. 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!
