ECWA & 2012 SUPER 8 Champion “Greek God” Papadon (20-0) vs. TWA Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde (15-6)!!!

When current ECWA Heavyweight Champion and 2012 Super 8 Champion “Greek God” Papadon saved and then turned on TWA Heavyweight Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde and the ECWA at WARGAMES on July 14th in Newark, Delaware, it only served to expedite the inevitable ECWA and TWA Title Unification Match!!! Papadon’s motivation, his ego and his insatiable desire to rule the ECWA with an iron fist is without question, while Wylde is not only seeking revenge, but now has possibly his last golden opportunity to prove himself and fulfill his dream of holding the OLDEST Heavyweight Championship in ALL of independent professional wrestling!!! Papadon will be celebrating his 560th day as ECWA Heavyweight Champion on Sept 15th. Will he make it to 561 days? Papadon is also the 2012 ECWA Super 8 Champion, former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion, 2012 Hall of Famer and 2011 ECWA Wrestler of the Year! Or will Chris Wylde, current TWA Heavyweight Champion and a former ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion of 11 months, succeed where he failed back in July 2011 and where countless others including Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole, Tony Nese, Aden Chambers, Alex Reynolds, Johnny Silver, Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian and more have failed? Will Wylde, a Delaware resident who as a teenager was an ECWA fan, fulfill his dream to become ECWA Heavyweight Champion and the first Unified Champion or will Papadon add that honor to his already long list of accolades?


FUSION DS (Damian Dragon & Matt Saigon) (c) vs. THE SONS of BLACKHEART (Armageddon & Anarchy) w/ Joel Blackhart

Currently in their third title reign as Unified ECWA Tag Team Champions, FUSION DS have been picking up steam since winning the championships from the Midnight Sensations in May in a Loser Leaves ECWA Match with great wins over Bandido Jr & Azrieal and #1 Johnny Silver & Alex Reynolds. Joel Blackhart (fka Joel Goodhart) did not skip a beat after his team lost WARGAMES in July when he declared that the SONS of BLACKHEART were coming to the ECWA to win the ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Titles from FUSION DS! This new team of Armageddon and Anarchy are reportedly the sons of the original Blackhearts, Apocalypse and Destruction, who were managed by Luna Vachon and were the last reigning TWA Tag Team Champions from the original TWA closed in 1992. Goodhart says Armageddon and Anarchy are coming back for the titles that their fathers never lost 20 years ago!

“French-Rainbow Connection” Cole Callaway & ECWA Mid-Atlantic Champion Mr. Ooh La La w/ Jim Shorts vs. “The Boss” Mike Tartaglia & Ricky “the Model” Martinez w/ Magnum and Gus Grand!!!

At WARGAMES in July, “the BOSS” walked out of his title match with Mr. Ooh La La and was intentionally counted out by special guest referee Cole Callaway. Following the loss ECWA Matchmaker Joe Zanolle informed the BOSS and Martinez and Ooh La La and Callaway that they would meeting in a tag team match at the 45th Anniversary Show in a LUMBERJACK MATCH to make sure the BOSS and Martinez do not flee the ring, but unlike any other LUMBERJACK MATCH in ECWA history, the FANS would serve as lumberjacks in this tag team encounter!

Grand Slam Champion Aden Chambers vs. Beautiful Bobby Shields

Two staples of ECWA meet for the FIRST TIME EVER one on one inside the ring at the 45th Anniversary Show, CHAMPIONS COLLIDE as Aden Chambers takes on Beautiful Bobby Shields!!! Chambers has looked better than ever since coming back from injury, while Shields has developed quite the mean streak during his time with Blackheart. Also, considering both faced each other in WARGAMES and both spent time training at TEAM TAZ Dojo, this is going to be one of the most evenly contested and exciting matches of the night!

5-Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian vs. Danny E w/ Magnum and Gus Grand

Kekoa the Flyin Hawaiian is returning from a successful tour of Europe looking to apply some of his new found knowledge and experience to continue his climb up the ladder in ECWA. Danny E is quite possibly the most underrated member of the ECWA locker room. A former Super 8 competitor, Tag Champion and Mid-Atlantic Champion, Danny is going to be very tough to beat especially with the ever present Magnum and Gus Grand lurking in his corner!

6-NAPALM BOMB vs. CUJO the Hellhound

NAPALM BOMB, making his ECWA debut, is looking to make an impact and in a big way at the 45th Anniversary Show. NAPALM boasts the size and talent, and surprising agility for a man his size. CUJO a veteran of many years knows every trick in the book and will make sure that NAPALM BOMB gets his proper introduction to the ECWA ring!

Here is a great review of “Greek God” Papadon vs. Adam Cole from ECWA Raising the Bar, June 2 by Mike Johnson at…

“I had the chance to check out the recent Adam Cole vs. Papadon bout promoted by the ECWA in Delaware and it was off the charts awesome. I really think that Papadon is one of the most underrated talents going right now, period and expect he’s going to be a name that suddenly is an overnight success after years of working to make it happen. He and Cole had awesome chemistry and some awesome drama. Well worth going out of your way to see it.”
