WHAT IS THE K-CUP???

On November 19, 2011, the East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA) will hold the very first annual K-CUP (Kangaroo Cup) TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT in Newark , Delaware . The K-CUP is basically the SUPER 8 for tag teams. The K-CUP will be part of double-header event on Nov 19th at the Boys & Girls Club in Newark , with an afternoon card at 4PM and the K-CUP at 7PM.

The K-Cup is an 8 participant, single elimination tournament with 4 quarter-final matches, followed by a semi-final round and finals much like the ECWA Super 8.

The ECWA named the K-CUP in honor of the Fabulous Kangaroos, one of wrestling’s first full-time tag team specialists in the United States who popularized Australian rules tag team wrestling, which is tag team wrestling rules that you are accustomed to today.

The Kangaroos, while not the first tag team in the literal sense in the United States , they were one of the first to work as “tag team specialist.” They were one of the first to use or popularize a team or unit name, and a name that lived on with different incarnations with different members (original members were Al Costello and Roy Heffernan). They also were one of the first early adopters of entertainment aspects of pro wrestling using ring entrance music (Waltzing Matilda) and also their native Australian ring jackets, bush hats and flag. They were great self-promoters too, for example they would make and throw out cardboard boomerangs to the crowd that had their name and pictures on it.
