ECWA is widely known for its Super 8 Tournament where the top independent stars have showcased their talents yearly since 1997! Most of our participants have gone on to great heights in the WWE, TNA, and around the globe! So one wonders why it took so long for the women of independent wrestling to find a similar showcase. So ECWA and Chickfight management partnered together to think of a revolutionary new idea… an all-women’s Super 8 Tournament! Finally, the most beautiful, talented, and deadly women on the independent scene will have an arena to show off their wrestling talents! And what makes this tournament even more special is the fact not only do they get the prestige of winning the first ever ECWA Women’s Super 8 but they also win the now vacant ECWA Woman’s Championship! How’s that for making history?

It’s sure to be a night to create an important part of professional wrestling for years to come! In this article series we want to showcase the women of the Super 8 so you can learn about what made them choices to be participants by the management teams of ECWA and Chickfight. Today we’ll take a look at 4 of the field’s stars and their careers up to this point. Trust me when I say this… wrestling will never know what hit it once this tournament comes at you on Saturday October 11, 2014!

Here’s a look at 4 of this year’s participants:

Annie Social- Social’s rise to the top of women’s independent wrestling almost didn’t happen. Discovered by chance at a bar in 2003 she quickly began her training at PWU’s Animal House under ECW alum’s Gary Wolfe, current ECWA referee Mike Kehner, and the late Trent Acid. Traveling all over the East Coast wrestling in places like Absolute Intense Wrestling, WSU, and Shimmer Annie Social has become known for her quiet brutality racking up numerous accomplishments. She was part of the first ever WSU Tag Team Champions along with Roxie Cotton. She had an impressive undefeated streak in Shimmer even gaining a championship match against current WWE trainer and Indy legend Sara Del Ray. Annie Social might be the most experienced woman in this tournament and she’s certainly to be an early favorite.

Chasity Ann Taylor- Chasity began training at a very young age. Her training started at age 14 and by age 18 she was already ring announcing and being the host for events for Shimmer and Shine. Coming out of the CWF- Mid Atlantic dojo she’s become known as the ‘Southern Sweetheart’ because of her sweet temperament and beautiful looks. But anyone that has been in the ring with her can tell you different. Traveling around to different promotions like CWF- Mid Atlantic, VOW, and PWF she’s proved she’s a feisty competitor not willing to give up so easily. She even had a WWE trout match at the young age of 19! What she lacks in experience she makes up with charisma and a surprising bad temper that often takes her opponents by surprise. Chasity could very well sneak her way to a victory in the tournament because she’ll be underestimated. That’s just fine for her as she looks to prove all the doubters wrong!

Tessa Blanchard- Tessa’s wrestling pedigree is unmatched in this tournament and perhaps even the world of women’s wrestling. The daughter of WWE Hall of Famer and Four Horsemen member Tully Blanchard, Tessa got her start ring announcing and modeling. Only being pro for the last 8-9 months, she’s less experienced than everyone else in the field of 8 but being trained by her father Tully Blanchard, Magnum T.A., and George South she’s already on a path to success. She’s even recently won the EWA Women’s Championship. She has a personal investment in this tournament as well; she and Chasity Taylor have had problems in the past. But with success in companies like PWX, UCW, and SWA, she’s had her fair share of haters. Regardless of that, Tessa has a famous name to live up to and she’s made it her mission to walk into the ECWA Women’s Super 8 and come out champion. To all the doubters who say she’s all beauty and no brawn, Tessa Blanchard will be all business and ready to fight.

Jenny Rose- By far the biggest star in this tournament, Jenny Rose has literally traveled the globe perfecting her craft. Training out of the ROH Dojo here in the USA and out of the Pro Wrestling Diana Dojo in Japan, she’s made a name for herself with her superior wrestling skill. Spending most of her career lately in Japan, she’s learned the complex strong style from numerous opponents overseas. Back here in America, she’s wrestled for places like WSU, Shimmer every step of the way flying around the ring like her Japanese trainers. Known for shocking everyone with her trademark speed, she wants to walk into the tournament and win adding the victory to her already long list of accomplishments. She just might be the deadliest competitor in the Super 8 and will be one to watch for sure.

And there you have it, your first look at the ladies of the all-women’s ECWA Super 8 Tournament! Another article will be released soon with a look at remaining 4 women. ECWA and Chickfight are excited to bring you this one of a kind tournament that make pro wrestling history!

Think it’s easy being John Cena? Try holding onto your spot as the top star of the world’s biggest sports-entertainment company while Wrestling Machines, Cerebral Assassins and a certain Beast Incarnate try to knock you off your perch.

Check out our photo gallery of Cena’s greatest rivals

The Cenation leader has been nothing if not resilient in his time as “the man” in WWE, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been pushed to his limit (or, as may be the case with Brock Lesnar, far beyond it) by a rogues gallery that enjoyed nothing more than putting that “Never give up” catchphrase to the test.

Which of Cena’s rivals do we think have been his most worthy adversaries? Find out in our list that includes Triple H, Batista and, believe it or not, maybe even you.

#10 – Kurt Angle:

We all know the story. A ferocious Olympic Gold Medalist issues an open challenge. A young bodybuilder with a truly awful crew-cut accepts. He flaunts his “ruthless aggression,” slaps the veteran across the face and ignites one of the era’s defining rivalries.

No one knew who John Cena was when he and Kurt Angle first squared off, but it was Angle who made Cena into the man he is today. The relentless Wrestling Machine followed young Cena wherever he went, pushing the upstart to his limit in the ring while forcing him to build his “Never Give Up” reputation. And it was Angle and his patented Ankle Lock that led Cena to adopt the STF in late 2005.

Watch Cena vs. Angle from Unforgiven 2005 on WWE Network

Their final singles encounter was a merciless First Blood Match on Raw just after New Year’s in 2006 that left both men in a messy heap. A fitting end to a rivalry built on “ruthless aggression.” — ZACH LINDER

Deaf wrestler fights for respect http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/90604/deaf-wrestler-fights-respect/ http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/90604/deaf-wrestler-fights-respect/#comments Sat, 13 Sep 2014 10:00:11 +0000 http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/?p=90604 The Buffalo resident battles stereotypes and doubters as he strives to become the first-ever deaf WWE wrestler.

Deaf

By Aaron Mansfield, News Sports Reporter:

Louis Long was bullied growing up on Buffalo’s West Side. He had 11 bicycles stolen from him by his 21st birthday, though Grandpa kept buying them.

By that point, Long was fed up. So when three men came up behind him, grabbed his backpack, punched him in the face, and tried to steal his wallet – an ordinary occurrence – Long decided to take a stand.

He let out a yell and put the leader into a sleeper hold. The other two ran away, terrified, and the assailant followed suit once Long let him go.

“I held him like an anaconda snake,” Long said. “I fought back. I could feel his voice on my arm as he tried to scream.”

He could feel it, but he couldn’t hear it.

Now 37 and better known by his wrestling name, Silent Warrior, Long has been fighting back ever since. The Buffalo resident battles stereotypes and doubters as he strives to become the first-ever deaf World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestler.

In 2012, Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked Long No. 495 in the world. The St. Mary’s School for the Deaf alumnus knows there is a long way to go until he tangles with the likes of Triple H and John Cena.

“Growing up, I always wanted to become a wrestler,” said Long, who was captain of his school’s varsity soccer, basketball, and track and field teams. “I want to show the world deaf people can roll up their sleeves and do these kinds of things. My goal is to educate others that deaf people can compete. There’s a huge lineup of people waiting to get into the WWE, but I want to show we can do this.”

There is no exact route to making the WWE. Some wrestlers have a connection in the industry and just about all WWE athletes reach that level because of how they look (the ideal appearance is 6-foot-8, ripped, and roughly 270 pounds) and what they can do in the ring.

Correspondence with the WWE communications department reveals a list of criteria for making the company, but nothing too specific. Some of the expectations are “3-5 years of professional wrestling experience or the athleticism, size and charisma to become a star” and “1-3 years training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.”

Perhaps the two most detrimental to Long are “strong communication skills” and “the ability to listen and learn.” Long communicates through sign language, email and hand-written letters, and he does not read lips.

Unable to communicate verbally but a beacon of joy nonetheless, he often ends his emails with “High Five, Louis.”

Long, ever the optimist, holds tight to his goal. For now, he is just looking to move up the rankings and gain exposure. There are several ways to win a match, and the most famous is pin fall, which involves holding an opponent’s shoulders down against the wrestling mat. Unlike professional wrestling, which requires a three-count, amateur wrestling requires just a one-count to win a match.

He sports a constant, warm smile that counters his tightly shaved head, the finest black grains just poking out from his scalp, and imposing 6-2, 220-pound frame.

“When hearing people say, ‘you can’t do this or that,’ I want to demonstrate I can,” Long said. “I want to prove to deaf people we can do it.”

Long traveled to Japan and won the MATA Wrestling Championship in November 2011. He successfully defended that title for 12 months. Though he is not yet sure when he’ll have his next match, Long will compete in Tokyo, Manila and London in 2014.

Long rides his bike to Pride Martial Arts Academy in Williamsville once a week and lifts weights and swims at LA Fitness four times a week. He still lives on the West Side with his grandmother, Anna Cook, who has raised him since he was 14.

“He’s so proud of being a wrestler,” Cook, 80 years old and 4-foot-10, said on the front porch with her excitable cockapoo, Poodles, on her lap. “He’s very independent and wants to do things on his own.”

The house’s walls are covered with photos of Long wrestling and interacting with fans, the frames barely hanging on nails, waiting to fall any minute and begging to be adjusted.
