— ECWA sent out the following today…

TITLE UNIFICATION MATCH at ECWA 45th ANNIVERSARY SHOW SEPT 15th in NEWARK, DELAWARE

CHAMPIONS COLLIDE!!! TITLE UNIFICATION MATCH

ECWA Champion “Greek God” Papadon (20-0) vs TWA Champion “Heart Killer” Chris Wylde (16-5)!!!

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?

Outside the ring, he services the community as an EMT and a firefighter and has always supported Special Olympics w/ ECWA. Be there at the 45th Anniversary Show, “CHAMPIONS COLLIDE” on Sat, Sept 15th at the Boys and Girls Club in Newark, Delaware as we say farewell to “the Fighting Paramedic” and “Greatest American Hero” Corey Blaze.
