Damian Vargas passed this along:

I was forwarded your email address by Mr. Joe Zanolle (booker for ECWA & TWA). I am one half of his current ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Champions (with Matt Saigon as Fusion D.S.) Mr. Zanolle was kind enough to share it with me as a very close friend & I are starting a promotion called Reign Of Kombat. But unlike most promotions that just open for purely for profit or to get themselves over, we have a deeper cause.

Reign Of Kombat is not just another promotion looking to purely provide wrestling entertainment. But R.O.K Wrestling is being created for the children of a community in need of positive role models. Jorge Mojica & myself (Damian Dragon) are beginning this promotion on July 9th and provided we have a successful debut are hoping to continue this program for the kids of Passaic, New Jersey.

Reign of Kombat (R.O.K. Wrestling) is in association with The Passaic Sports Complex. The Sports Complex is an organization seeking locals concerned with our community to support our Youth oriented programs. offers a positive environment of learning and teaching discipline, sound fundamentals, and techniques that will help children to reach athletic goals. The association is composed of a group of committed coaches, parents, and administrators working together to support young athletes. The programs include but not limited to little league baseball, in-door batting cages, a soon to be constructed in-door soccer field and hopefully their newest attraction a monthly Pro-Wrestling Exhibition.

R.O.K. Wrestling’s mission is to create a positive alternative for families to bring their children to for monthly entertainment. A way to detract from the youth being exposed to the negative elements of their community. R.OK Wrestling’s roster is composed of well-rounded individuals & trained wrestlers from all walks of life. Many of whom grew up around the same negative environments and hardships. But instead of falling victim to these things, found a positive outlet by training in the world of professional wrestling. Now these young men and women want to bring the next generation of children their brand of sports entertainment in hopes it will inspire them to find more positive outlets to stay away from the negatives of their community just as they have. At the same time, supporting athletic ability, emphasizing academic success and developing leadership by not just performing, but verbally interacting with the kids of Passaic, New Jersey. Our talent is also a step away from the norm and is focusing on a majority of fresh talents that are simply not getting an opportunity to shine though as talented as many of the names that arein circulation. Some include WXW student Niya, Puerto Rican Star Frankie Flow, co-holder of the ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Champions Matt Saigon of Fusion D.S., and the current ECWA Heavyweight Champion Papadon to name a few.

We are writing you in hopes your paper will be kind enough to help us spread the word about these two small companies attempting to make a large difference in an equally small tight net community. Anything you can do to help us will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support of our children. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to Contact us.

ECWA –Kid America on July 16 in Newark, DE and Tag Team Tournament Announced for Nov 19 in Newark, DE

IT’S GOING to BE a BLUE 4th for KID AMERICA!

When you ask Kid America what his favorite holiday is, would you expect any answer other than the 4th of July? As we approach the day of our declaration of independence, many are making plans to celebrate. But this year, Kid America’s holiday won’t be Red, White and Blue… just BLUE!

You see, several months ago, the Russian Assassin and his manger, Coach Jim Shorts, stole Kid America’s USA flag at the ECWA and they are still in possession of it.

“That particular flag has sentimental value to me. I’m not one to cry to the promoters and management; I take care of business inside the ring. Assassin, Shorts, trust me, one way or another, I am going to take back what you stole. Be ready on July 16th in Newark [Delaware]!”

Will Kid America be able to restore his and his country’s honor? Be there on July 16th to find out!

ECWA TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCED, NOV 19th in NEWARK, DE

On November 19, 2011, at the Boys & Girls Club in Newark, Delaware, Tri-State Wrestling Entertainment, LLC, presents the EAST COAST WRESTLING ASSOCIATION (ECWA) TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT!

The Nov. 19 tournament, like the Super 8 Tournament, will feature 8 entrants/teams and be a one-night single elimination event.

On June 6, 2010, Tri-State Wrestling Entertainment, LLC presented a tag team tournament for the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) Tag Team Titles that was won by the Best Around, TJ Canon and Bruce Maxwell.

For coverage of that event, please visit:
http://www.snapmare.com/TWATagTournamentCoverage.html

“I have always been a huge fan of tag team wrestling, especially 80′s tag teams like the British Bulldogs, the Hart Foundation, the Midnight Express and the Road Warriors to name a few,” said Joe Zanolle of ECWA management. “I also love tournaments, namely the Jim Crockett Cup tournaments in the 1980′s and of course the SUPER 8. In today’s wrestling, it seems that tag team wrestling is always an afterthought, at least in the WWE, but there are tons of great tag teams on the independent scene that are keeping the art of tag team wrestling alive and that is what we want to celebrate on Nov 19th!”

The TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT will now be an annual event like the Super 8 Tournament.

The 8 teams competing in the Nov 19th tournament will be announced in the weeks and months ahead.
