A monthly in depth look at the ECWA performers by Josh Martin
by Josh Martin
He is called "The Voice of the People"! Like him or not, ECWA Heavyweight Champion, FREAK NASTTY, has earned the respect of the fans and his peers. He's brash, cocky, opinionated, crude, loud and most of all a thorn in the side of ECWA's top officials, yet there is something about him that instantly connects with the promotion's fan base.
Since entering the ECWA, this 230 pound powerhouse has done it his way. He has battled Cheetah
Master, Mike Kruel, Arch Kincaid, Fred Sampson and the Valedictorians just to name a few. He has very few friends and allies, if any, but that doesn't bother him as he is all business when he steps in the squared circle
