Tessa Blanchard first held gold in the EWA!

Former EWA Florida Heavyweight Champion Tessa Blanchard
Current Impact superstar Tessa Blanchard held the EWA Florida title in 2015, defeating Mr. Florida for the honors on 4/25/15 in St. Petersburg, FL. Or at least that's their story, and they're sticking to it. (Another great photo by Jack Roberts over at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway.)

Tessa was also a former EWA Champion and once won the Anderson Brothers Classic tag team tournament with partner George South. Photos of that to come down the road on the EWA Parade of Champions.

Don't miss our earlier posts in the EWA Parade of Champions series:

The House Crockett Built: George calls out Cactus Jack

George interrupted Cactus Jack Mick Foley in the ring during a "Big Time Wrestling" show at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium on 12/8.

George told Cactus he was in the house built by Tully Blanchard, Dusty Rhodes, and Magnum T.A. - - not the WWE!

Big pop.

With the Champ

So happy to see Harley Race again this past weekend at WrestleCade! One of the greatest ever!

(Also Leland Race who looks vaguely familiar from a previous lifetime!)

Ricky Steamboat Jr. held EWA Gold!

Former EWA Missouri State Heavyweight Champion
Ricky Steamboat Jr.
Ricky Steamboat, Jr. held the EWA Missouri title in 2008. He spent time working and training with Harley Race at his school in Missouri, and entered a tournament there to win the title. Later that year, he made a special appearance on a big Anderson Brothers Classic show and defended the title there.

Thanks to Dick Bourne at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway who took this great photo of "little Ricky."

The Infamous Mr. Florida is first up in our Parade of Champions


Former EWA Florida Heavyweight Champion Mr. Florida

Who was the man under the mask that hailed from Mascotte, Florida? Some swore they knew his identity, but no one could ever prove it. Besides, you might be surprised. More photos of Mr. Florida coming soon.

Mr. Florida is a former 4-time EWA Florida Heavyweight champion between 2008 and 2015. He feuded with Ricky Steamboat, Jr., Blackjack Mulligan, Deon Johnson and many others. The last person to beat him for the title was none other than Tessa Blanchard!

Look for more photos of the various EWA champions in future installments of the EWA Parade of Champions.
