  3. Start the New Year off right with ECWA this Saturday!


It’s 2016! The New Year is still fresh on the minds of everyone around the world. Everyone is looking for a new start and New Year’s resolutions are being listed for goals that are hoped to be accomplished this year. In ECWA, we have a New Year’s resolution… as a matter of fact it’s the same one we’ve made for the last half a century! Our resolution is to continue to bring all of you, THE FANS, the very best professional wrestling on the East Coast! Over the years, we’ve seen our fair share of amazing feuds, matches, and watched some of our own go from performing for us to on our TV screens every week. That’s the beauty of ECWA and independent wrestling in general. This Saturday January 30 is the first ECWA show of 2016 aptly named New Year’s Resolutions V. The night has HUGE matches planned that has something for everyone… we have debuts, bad blood, revenge, and that’s just the start! With a card like this it’s easy to see why ECWA is THE place to bring your family to watch live professional wrestling. Here’s a rundown and look-in at the night’s scheduled card:

*ECWA Heavyweight Championship: ‘Hybrid’ Sean Carr ( c) vs. Breaker Morant

Carr’s ego and loud mouth have been the bane of ECWA faithful over the last few months. Under very questionable circumstances from a fireball to the face of former champion Matt Saigon by Zac Connor, Sean Carr is the new ECWA heavyweight champion! Breaker Morant, Saigon’s friend and mentor, obviously thinks Carr was in on the fireball scandal and is out for revenge for Saigon and himself after a brutal superkick from Carr at the end of last month’s show.

*ECWA Tag Team Championship match:  Pan Corp Agency (ECWA Tag Team Champions Damian Adams & Ricky Martinez will defend the Tag Team Championship against South Phillys Finest!

*ECWA Women’s Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c ) vs. Miranda Vionette

Deonna Purrazzo has quickly become the hottest free agent in independent professional wrestling since winning the ECWA Super 8 tournament back in October. Fresh off appearances for WWE, TNA, and ROH she’s ready to defend her ECWA Women’s championship. Miranda Vionette wrestled Deonna Purrazzo in the first round of the ECWA 2nd ANNUAL WOMEN’S CHICKFIGHT TOURNAMENT last October and was unsuccessful.  Will she come out on top this Saturday?

GRUDGE MATCH #1: Napalm Bomb vs. ‘ The Human Terminator’ Solo w/ Joel Blackhart

Napalm Bomb is healed after missing time due to injury and is out to stick to his former tag partner and friend. He’s also out to shut Joel Blackhart for good. Napalm Bomb was going to vacate his ECWA Mid Atlantic title around 3 months ago but Blackhart insisted that he not. He instead got Solo to defend it for him in a Fatal Four Way. Witnessing both Solo and Napalm cheat during that match so they could keep the championship, Napalm stepped in and made sure the plan didn’t go through. Bobby Shields would eventually win the title. This development led to Napalm firing Joel Blackhart! Blackhart has decided to take out Napalm for good and has enlisted Solo’s help to due the dirty deed.

*GRUDGE MATCH #2: Chuck Payne vs. Kyle Payne w/Joel Blackhart

The Extreme Rednecks are no more! On a losing streak of late, the partnership showed signs of fracture. The final straw was Chuck losing to Breaker Morant at last month’s show. Kyle would brutally assault his now former tag partner, using a cutter suplex on chairs to emphasize his message. Kyle would then post strange videos saying he’s going to ‘wake up the monster inside Chuck’ so the tag team could once again be dominant. However, Chuck isn’t taking this lightly and has been training hard to get his revenge. Kyle might have bitten off more than he can chew.

* ‘Heartkiller’ Chris Wylde vs. ‘The New Standard of ECWA’ Cory Kastle

Chris Wylde is ready to start climbing the ladder of ECWA again in his quest to be in consideration for ECWA gold once again. Standing in his way is a man also looking to climb his way to the top… a man he knows very well in Cory Kastle. Forces clash in this battle to see who deserves the next championship opportunity!

*Meisure Ooh La La vs. ‘Old School’ Eric Martin

Eric Martin is also making his ECWA debut. Not much is known about this new contender except for the fact he goes ‘Old School’ during his matches. The wily veteran Meisure Ooh La La has happily accepted the chance to see what this young rookie has to offer… himself a prime example of what ‘Old School’ looks like in ECWA. What can happen with this new unknown competitor?

*The Boss’s Chair with ‘The Boss’ Mike Tartaglia- special guest Zac Connor

The “highly” loved interview segment is back! This time maybe we can finally get to the bottom of why Zac Connor attacked Matt Saigon so brutally with a fireball. Was Sean Carr in on it? Was he paid off? Did even ‘The Boss’ himself have something to do with it with Saigon being an old foe? We’ll look for answers out of this!

How’s that for a card of professional wrestling?! The night looks to be a blast! Let’s all start the New Year off right by making a resolution to see this show live THIS SATURDAY NIGHT JANUARY 30! Here’s the rest of the information you’ll need, hope to see all of you there:
