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!
Five 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 ECWA Heavyweight Champion ‘Hybrid’ Sean Carr.
And now the SIXTH MAN in the field of eight has been made official!
This man got his start in the ECWA… he was a former ECWA Mid Atlantic Champion, a former 2 time ECWA tag team champion, and an ECWA Hall of Famer. He was a quarter finalist in the 2007 ECWA Super 8 Tournament. Right now he is a star in TNA!
There he’s a former X-Division champion, a former 2 time TNA tag team champion, and a former Television champion.
He’s been a valedictorian, a “Platinum Poppa”, and a BroMan from the Jersey Shore. He is none other than TNA star ROBBIE E!
Robbie E has made a name for himself over the years doing characters that often get under fans’ skin. He’s been called brash and even an egomaniac! However, for all the flash and flamboyant behavior he’s steadily upped his game inside the ring and is always ranked as one of the best professional wrestlers in the world by PWI Magazine. Robbie’s ability to mold himself to whatever style is his opponents weakness has been his biggest staple over his stellar 15 year career. He can out power you, out speed you, and even out smart even the best ring generals.
The proof is in the pudding! He’s won championship after championship whatever company he wrestled for. His flashy self image has even led him to appear on a season of CBS acclaimed show The Amazing Race! He finished in fourth in the competition!
Robbie E fell short in his last chance at winning the tournament and is joining a field that includes five other of the best pro wrestlers to ever compete in the Super 8 Tournament. Could it be the year that Robbie E adds yet another astounding honor to his already amazing career?
