Michael Tartaglia sent this in:


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.

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 ( 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!”

The Final Chapter of this warriors career starts November 19th as Gene Snitsky Debuts with NHPW in Australia. Mana and Snitsky have a past from the USA where they fought tooth and nail in WXW.

On August 28th, Amarillo Elite Wrestling returns for One Night in Dimmitt!

Saturday, August 28th, the promotion that stated the tradition of bringing the top names of pro wrestling to the Texas Panhandle makes its way to the Castro County Expo Building in Dimmitt, TX as we present “AEW One Night in Dimmitt”.

At AEW Human Chess Tournament back on July 31, Derek Cornell made his debut in AEW, and challenged A-Will to match, but was handed a defeat on a silver platter. Now, Derek returns, and challenges A-Will to a 6-Man Tag Challenge. A-Will has accepted, and has already chosen the towering Brandon Macgreggor & “ShowCase” Shonce Williams as his team. Who will Derek bring with him to battle?

Also, AEW Management has decided to vacate the Tag Team Championships and put them up for grabs in a Tag Team Gauntlet. 5 teams have been chosen to go for the gold, as The Cruz Empire, The Tye-Dyed Tandem, Heaven’s Decent, The Mile High Club, and the team of Shawn Nautlius & Jason Stryfe will all head to battle. Which team can claim the coveted AEW Tag Team Championships?

In the Main Event, it was scheduled to be an epic match between AEW Premier World Champion Jerry Lynn and the 2010 Human Chess Champion Jerry One. However, due to the injury which sidelined him from competing at TNA HardCORE Justice, Lynn has decided to heal up for another chance, while giving up the Premier World Title. Now, Jerry One will have to face 2 unknown challengers for the vacant strap? Will “The Iron Man of Pro Wrestling” be prepared, and who are these two new challengers?

Johnny Crash -VS- Pierce Price in a Softcore Challenge
Jayzon Zane w/ Poizon Ivy -VS- Angelus Layne in Intergender Action
“The Hispanic Titanic” Rual Torrez -VS- “Hott Sauce” Marco Riviera in a South-Texas Chain Match
A Juniorweight Challenge featuring Junior Garza

Plus, it’s the return of referee “Rightous” Scottie McLovin, as he joins senior official, “Your Captain” Rocky Jimenez, in calling the action down the middle in the AEW squared circle!

At The Castro County Expo Building
(403 SE 4th Street in Dimmitt, TX)
