Royal Rumble – 20 March!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On March - 7 - 2018

Don’t miss it! Now at Goodwood Civic Centre – Tuesday 20th March 2018 at 7.30pm!

New venue for the AWA’s premiere event – House of Pain 2018!

That’s right, we’re moving the House of Pain to the Goodwood Civic Centre!

Tuesday 20TH MARCH 2018 – It’s the first big event of the year, the House of Pain and we’ll be hosting it in a brand new venue. It’s not just the venue that’s new, there’s a squad of fresh faces to join the battle. And we’ll be battling hard on the evening, culminating in one massive 22-man Coca Cola Royal Rumble. That means 22 fighters enter the ring and only one will emerge as a winner.

THE FIGHTS
There’ll be five big bouts on the evening featuring the usual athletes such as The Oz, Freakshow, Mad Jack Maverick, Andro Perseus and Hillbilly Kid. The Congo King, the Congolese heavyweight champion has his eye on the All-Africa Heavyweight title, how will Shaun Koen handle this threat? Two more titles will be up for grabs – that means Johnny Palazzio will have to defend his Cruiserweight Belt while Wilfred McFish will have his Lightweight Title threatened. But neither of these men will face the pressure of Waldo Swiegers, the current Royal Rumble champion who will have to fend off 21 challengers.

BIG NEWS
We’ll be making a massive announcement on the night so make sure not to miss this historic event!

House of Pain is here!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On April - 4 - 2016

House of Pain 2016

Freedom Fight! The Parow Civic Centre plays host once again to the Africa Wrestling Alliance’s flagship bust-up, the House of Pain. This celebratory wrestling event sees South Africa’s top athletes compete in back-to-back bouts, one-on-one match-ups and ring-rumbling tag-team battles.

TITLE SHOTS

El-Marco will be defending the lightweight title that he won in December when he beat The Hillbilly and Devon Shooter in a Triple-Threat match. Who will get the opportunity to wrestle this coveted belt from El-Marco’s hands?

Cruiserweight champ, Ed Electric has managed to retain his title for 18 months straight – will this House of Pain mark the day he succumbs to a more skilled wrestler? And if so, will he put up a fight?

HEAVY HITTERS

Watch as heavyweights such as Missing Link, Johnny Palazzio, Shaun Koen, Freak Show and The Oz go head-to-head in ground-shaking bouts.

This House of Pain will also mark the debut of two new combatants, Jay Cooper and Mike Zander. One thinks he’s a model and the other thinks he is the greatest gift to the sport of wrestling. Watch as the AWA stalwarts put them both in their place!

So feel free to stay out late with us at this year’s first House of Pain event – the next day is Freedom Day! Watch this space for more updates on this exciting event.

Ticket Prices: R80 All reserved | R50 All unreserved

8th August 2014 NEXT “HOUSE OF PAIN”!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On July - 27 - 2014

AFRICA WRESTLING PROUD PRESENTS HOUSE OF PAIN 8TH AUGUST 2014
Why should you care? Well, the AWA House of Pain event is one of the largest wrestling shows in South Africa and we’d like to celebrate this fact by rewarding our fans with a star-studded line-up and the best grappling in the land. So here it is, the AWA’s usual brand of chaos in raw format.

TAG BOUT DEBUTS NEW BRAWLERS
The School of Hard Knocks has churned out two more up-and-comers, in the shape of The Prince and Falcon. They have teamed up with AWA stalwart, Miss Gorgeous, and will be facing the more seasoned alliance of Max the Body, El Marco and Little Hillbilly. Will experience outweigh exuberance? Or will the young pups overcome the complacent veterans?

SA CRUISERWEIGHT CHALLENGE
The gauntlet was recently thrown at the feet of current Cruiserweight Champ, Johnny Palazzio by the man on an enviable winning streak, Mr Money. The Kwazulu Natal local has had a tremendous run of successes overcoming some exceptionally skilled fighters in the process. Will his luck have any effect on the Italian’s more maverick approach to wrestling or will Palazzio prevail once again.

NUMBER ONE CONTENDER
The quest for Cruiserweight gold doesn’t stop with these two. Vinnie Vegas will be facing Ed Electric for the esteemed honour of being next in line to contend for the title. These are two established AWA mat masters, well-rounded and hungry for a win. Vinnie arguably wants it more having just lost the title to Palazzio but you can’t count either one out till the bell tolls.

BIG MYSTERY MATCH-UP
In a fit of overconfidence the Missing Link, all new Africa Heavyweight Champion, has put out an open challenge to anyone and everyone at the AWA. His opponent has been chosen but will only be announced on the night of the bout so don’t miss the reveal. The only question now is will the Link be missing his shiny new belt at the end of the night.

A FITTING FINALE, THE CARS INCORPORATED BATTLE ROYALE
It’s our biggest bout of the night and one of the largest Battle Royales that the AWA has had the privilege of hosting in recent years. A whopping 23 wrestlers will enter the ring with only the last man standing to win the Cars Incorporated Battle Royale trophy as well as the Golden Ticket that allows them to challenge anyone for any title in any sort of match.

TICKETS: R80 Ringside, R50 Unreserved | GENERAL ENQUIRIES: 082 456-0792
