On Saturday, January 17, 2015 Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian and Bobby Shields went to war…. A friendship turned to hate… a battle of wills… and for Shields at least a chance at revenge.
Just two months ago at Toys for Tots, Bobby Shields was the ECWA Heavyweight Champion. He was riding high on the biggest wave of popularity of his wrestling career in ECWA and certainly the man to beat in the company. Bobby Shields was mere seconds away from finally ending his months long feud with Ricky Martinez… he would establish himself as the most dominant champion in ECWA in years… but it was for naught.
Kekoa would strike.
He would betray their friendship, betray the fans, and bring a ‘Future of the Business’ into focus. In one swift blow, Kekoa had helped Ricky Martinez become the new ECWA Heavyweight Champion. Shields was shocked and appalled… but most of all angry.
How could someone he thought was his friend do this to him?
And so, New Year’s Resolutions IV came to Woodbury Heights, NJ and it was Kekoa vs. Bobby Shields in a grudge match for the ages. Kekoa out to rid the ‘Future of the Business’ of this pesky threat; and the former champion out for blood and revenge.
The fight was hard hitting. It was uncomfortable. And it went all over the arena!
Kekoa and Bobby Shields hit each other with traffic cones, random items at ringside, threw each other into walls and tables, and even grabbed fans food/drink to hit the other with it. It caused a huge security mess for the ECWA staff as the fans ran to get out of dodge as the two men battled back and forth. Eventually, Kekoa would crawl away as ECWA security held Bobby Shields back in an attempt to restore order to the night.
Fans went crazy in support of Shields but the match itself had no outcome. A double count-out that served no purpose to Kekoa’s plans or the revenge sought after by they call ‘Wrestling’s True Talent’.
ECWA matchmaker Joe Zanolle was outraged by this display of unprofessionalism and misconduct. Moreover, he was disappointed a match ended with no definitive outcome…. Brainstorming he came up with a way to protect the fans, the security, and make sure that a winner and loser would be decided.
Kekoa and Bobby Shields will happen again… but this time in a HUGE LUMBERJACK MATCH! All the men from the locker room will surround the ring and make sure neither Kekoa nor Bobby Shields can escape. Someone will have to win, and someone will have to lose.
Will this new stipulation keep Kekoa from running for cover? Or will he use it to his advantage as his friend Ricky Martinez will surely lurk nearby.
Or can the former champion who was screwed out of his championship get his revenge and get some measure of peace?
Only time can answer these questions… join us to see this and other amazing matches as ECWA presents WINTER CHALLENGE on Saturday February 21, 2015!
