AHTU Takes on Mozart & Richards in a Handicap Match

When ECWA Commissioner D.J. Hyde heard that AHTU was ready for ANY challenge in the ECWA, he responded on FACEBOOK saying, “Since Ahtu is ready for ANY challenge, let’s make July 16th in Newark, Delaware, interesting. Ahtu will not be facing one man, but TWO, in a handicap match. And Ahtu’s opponents for July 16th will be….REVOLUTION members Mozart Fontaine and Timothy Richards!!! Ahtu, GOOD LUCK!”

AHTU responds to his upcoming handicap match vs. Tim Richards & Mozart Fontaine for July 16th in this video.

ADAM COLE to Face KEKOA the FLYIN’ HAWAIIAN July 16th in Newark, DE

– 2010 Wrestling Observer Newsletter Rookie of the Year.
– Current CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion
– 2011 CZW Best of the Best X Tournament Champion
– 2011 ECWA Super 8 Tournament Finalist

These are just SOME of the many achievements that belong to Adam Cole. The most amazing part is Cole is ONLY in his third year as a pro!

While July 16th will be Adam Cole’s ECWA Delaware debut, ECWA fans are very familiar with Cole from his unbelievable showing in the Super 8 Tournament on April 30th, where he defeated Sami Callihan, his hated rival, in the first round and Austin Aries, former 2-time ROH Champion, in the semi-finals before succumbing to Tommaso Ciampa in the finals.

The ECWA fans are not the only ones familiar with Cole, so is his scheduled opponent, the wildly popular Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian, who also has been making a great impression on the ECWA fan base of late. In fact, it was a match between Adam Cole and Kekoa from several years back that first brought Kekoa to the attention of ECWA management.

The real question though, is which Adam Cole will show up in Delaware? Will it be the mild-mannered, smiling, crowd favorite seen in ROH and the Super 8 & TWA in New Jersey? Or will it be the pompous, underhanded “Panama City Playboy” that holds the CZW Junior Heavyweight Championship in CZW? You have to consider the fact that D.J. Hyde, the owner of CZW, is the current ECWA Commissioner. But you also have to consider the fact too, that CZW fans are “counter-culture,” where the villain is celebrated and the hero is despised.

Either way, be sure to make it to the ECWA July 16th, as Adam Cole vs. Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian will surely be a wrestling classic!!!
