A monthly in depth look at the ECWA performers by Josh Martin
by Josh Martin
Matt Logan is the younger of the ECWA's popular brother duo of The Logan Brothers. Although an accomplished tag team wrestler, he has also excelled in the singles ranks as well. He is the only wrestler in the history of the promotion to ever win the Annual ECWA Summit on Super 8 night twice. He on occasion with his older brother Bryan, have had the opportunity to team with their 3rd brother, Nick.
Matt has a passion for the wrestling business and it shows every time he steps in the squared circle. He is a ring technician, skilled both in tag team and singles competition. He is also quite popular with the ECWA fans. While only being in wrestling 4 years, he thinks and acts in the ring like a highly seasoned veteran which is a great compliment to his in ring abilities. If he stays on his current pathway, Matt Logan has a bright future ahead of him in the wrestling business. I had the opportunity to sit down and pose several questions to Matt. I hope you enjoy!
