Sixth participant for 2017 ECWA Super 8 Announced
Entrant # 6 chosen for the ECWA Super 8 Tournament
ECWA has been around for almost 50 years now… half a century of top notch wrestling put on by some of the world’s best wrestlers. A company that lasts that long has to keep innovating for the future… and innovate it did back in 1997 when former ECWA owner Jim Kettner invented the Super 8 Tournament. Originally, it was to crown an ECWA TV Championship, a now defunct championship. But the buzz behind the performers’ showing created massive buzz in the indy circuit, especially picking up PWI Magazine’s interest and coverage. And so it grew into a phenomenon! Wrestlers from all across the country begged and fought for the chance to be among the chosen eight. A good showing, and more importantly a win, in the tournament almost guarantees national coverage. Most of the past competitors went on to HUGE things in the wrestling industry whether it was in WWE, WCW, ROH, or even Japan.
Some of the notable names that have competed in or won the Super 8 Tournament:
-WWE NXT star Austin Aries
-Former WWE Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan
-International Superstar Low Ki
-ROH and TNA star Christopher Daniels
-IWGP Jr Tag Team Champion Rocky Romero
-Former WWE Tag Team Champions Jeff AND Matt Hardy
-Former WWE Tag Team Champion Brian Kendrick
-ROH Champion Adam Cole
-WWE NXT Tag Team Champion Tommaso Ciampa
And that’s literally just barely a list of the amazing names that all wrestling fans know and love that have competed under the ECWA banner at the Super 8 Tournament. These men weren’t household names when they competed… just young, hungry wrestlers looking for a chance. You know these men AFTER the fact… that’s the story of the Super 8.
With that in mind, this is year 21 of the famous single elimination tournament! ECWA management wanted to make a huge splash with fresh, young talent competing for all the glory. The search didn’t go very far before they found exactly the kind of athletes and wrestlers that embodies what the Super 8 stands for.
With 5 men already chosen, ECWA management took a look around the Northeast indy scene for a wrestler waiting for his chance to break out… to finally show what he’s worth. Someone looking to show off their skill…
The man they chose has no problem showing off… has no problem saying he’s the best high flyer in the business… and he has no problem taking any risk to ensure you remember his name.
THE SIXTH ENTRANT IN THE 2017 ECWA SUPER 8 TOURNAMENT IS ‘THE HUMAN ROCKET’ LSG!
LSG is one of the most electrifying, exciting wrestlers on the planet today. Getting his training out of the world famous Monster Factory as well as the respected Ring of Honor Dojo, he’s made a name for himself being one of the best all around wrestlers in the business today. He’s well traveled already working for companies like ROH, MCW, ACE, C4, and Beyond Wrestling. His powerful personality gains him almost instant fan appreciation and he’ll be one to watch in this tournament.
A brief look at any highlight video of LSG will show you what he brings to the table… as the ROH Dojo has produced some of the best wrestlers in the world and he’s no different. With a creative mixture of silky high impact attacks, he utilizes the ropes more than any wrestler on the planet doing all kinds of flips and dives onto his opponents… a front flip flying elbow… and his patented 450 splash all make him quite possibly the best kept secret in pro wrestling.
Needless to say, LSG will not settle for second place! He’ll look to steal the show and take the Super 8 by storm!
All of the other men in the tournament who take to the air have officially been put on notice… one of the best high flyers in ROH… or anywhere for that matter… is looking for a gold trophy…
AND HE MIGHT JUST GET IT!
The Super 8 Tournament will be HIGH IMPACT this year!
