Royal Rumble 11th Dec 2014

Posted by Africa Wrestling On November - 26 - 2014

AWA’s ultimate fight night features a 23-man Coca-Cola Royal Rumble battle where the last man standing will exit the ring with the most coveted belt. The current title holder is Miss Gorgeous who vows to keep the belt for a second year running even though he’ll be the first man entering the ring and will have to battle through the full complement of 22 remaining wrestlers. If he manages to do that, he’ll be the first man in AWA history to accomplish a back-to-back victory.

Other superstars set to contest will be the All Africa Heavyweight Champion – the Missing Link, Shaun Koen, Max The Body, Sammy Sweigers, Ed-Electric and El-Marco. If you’re expecting absolute chaos, you won’t be disappointed in this massive, unrestricted brawl.

While the Royal Rumble will undoubtedly be the highlight of the evening, it is by no means the only match worth making the effort to see. In fact, the AWA have prepared an extended talent pool for this event and that means five intense bouts. Don’t miss this one, folks.

Tickets are available at the door. UNRESERVED: R50 | RESERVED: R80
All bookings and enquiries, contact Shaun at 082 456-0792

House of Pain & Royal Rumble 11 Dec

Posted by Africa Wrestling On November - 17 - 2014

AWA’s ultimate fight night features a 23-man Coca-Cola Royal Rumble battle where the last man standing will exit the ring with the most coveted belt. The current title holder is Miss Gorgeous who vows to keep the belt for a second year running even though he’ll be the first man entering the ring and will have to battle through the full complement of 22 remaining wrestlers. If he manages to do that, he’ll be the first man in AWA history to accomplish a back-to-back victory.

Johnny Palazzio comes back all guns blazing for this match to defend his Cruiseweight title that he was able to retain after a battle with Mr Money three months ago. This was the fight where Palazzio broke his leg and continued in the ring despite the injury. As for Mr Money, losing to Palazzio in the previous match means he’ll have to wear a dress on the night of the Royal Rumble – the result of the lost challenge.

Other superstars set to contest will be the All Africa Heavyweight Champion – the Missing Link, Shaun Koen, Max The Body, Sammy Sweigers, Ed-Electric and El-Marco. If you’re expecting absolute chaos, you won’t be disappointed in this massive, unrestricted brawl.

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.

David Finlay out for SA Gold!

Posted by Africa Wrestling On November - 24 - 2013

< ![endif]–>

Young David Finlay, son of Dave ‘Fit’ Finlay made his debut in Germany in 2012. He is a three time Georgia State qualifying amateur wrestler, and himself a fourth generation professional wrestler. Young Finlay found himself in Cape Town doing missionary work during his gap year, when his father, ‘Fit’ Finlay quick about locating the country’s finest wrestling organisation and getting his son involved. You might know of Dave ‘Fit’ Finlay’s other successes such as his current position as producer of WWE. He is also a trainer and of course acclaimed professional wrestler with longstanding careers in WCW and WWE. And so it was his call to the AWA that led to David’s enrolment at the School of Hard Knocks. After four months of hard graft, David has graduated to AWA’s competition level, and will be forced to prove his mettle in an elimination style fight against three of the organisation’s hardest hitters. Enter Max ‘The Body’, Johnny Palazzio and the title-holder, Vinnie Vegas. Finlay leaves South Africa two days after the House of Pain. Will he be leaving with the SA Cruiserweight Title around his waist?
