TRI-STATE WRESTLING ALLIANCE (TWA) NOW HAS A NEW SISTER PROMOTION, THE EAST COAST WRESTLING ASSOCIATION (ECWA)

On August 18, 2010, ECWA Founder Jim Kettner announced that he was retiring from the promotion and handing the reigns over to Mike Tartaglia and Joe Zanolle of the TWA.  Kettner started the ECWA 43 years ago, and has entertained many, many fans along the way as well as providing many area wrestlers, and many who went on to become big stars in wrestling, a great place to perform and hone their skills.  Kettner wanted to leave the ECWA the same way he started it, quietly and with little fanfare.  Kettner is a great friend, we thank him and we wish him well always.

Tartaglia and Zanolle plan to promote the TWA & ECWA shows separately.

TWA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION BREAKER MORANT TO DEFEND TWICE DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER

Since winning the TWA Heavyweight Championship on April 11, 2010, Break Morant has said that he wants to defend the title against all comers, regardless of whether they are a favorite of the fans or not.  So far, Morant has successfully defended the title against "The Beast" Glen Osbourne, Osbourne/"Hitman" Tony Stetson/"Mr. Wrestling" Steve Corino in a four corners match, and Corino in a singles bout.

Coming in September, Morant has two titles defenses against a couple of very capable challengers.  First, on Sept 18 at Wescott Field in Sewell, NJ, Morant will defend against "The Midnight Idol" Nicky Benz.  While Benz's comedic persona often elicits laughter and jeers from the crowd, there is a very accomplished and seasoned veteran wrestler beneath that powder blue tuxedo and dark hair toupee. 

Then on Sept 25 at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, Morant will meet Damian Dragon for the championship.  Dragon recently won a hard fought four corners match and has also been hitting a lot of professional strides in the TWA and also in World-1 (www.world1online.com) and most recently ROH.  Dragon has a hard hitting elbow drop off the top rope that Morant had better avoid being hit with, otherwise his championship reign may be a short one.

While Morant has recently started to hear some cheers from the fans, especially when he faced Steve Corino, the champ again reiterated his goal, "It doesn't matter to me who the fans cheer, the bottom line is I'm going to defend this TWA Heavyweight Championship against whoever the TWA management and TWA Commissioner Joel Goodhart deems worthy, friend or foe, and I am going to honor and bring prestige to the most coveted prize in the TWA!"
