The AWA enjoyed two successful days of campaigning through Upington, enlisting some help from Ananzi, Steve Eden, Johnny Saban and Daniel KO Koen from Jozi to ensure an action packed roster to complete our Cape Town contingent. That means the like of Ed Electric, Sammy Swiegers, Little Hillbilly and Shaun Koen had to earn their keep against the national squad. The winners were ultimately the fans
Something wicked this way comes…
That’s right, it took a while to get here but the country’s premiere wrestling tournament has arrived. Complete with over 20 wrestlers, and an opportunity to see all of them at once combat in a Battle Royale. That’s the AWA’s toughest hombres sharing the squared circle. It won’t stay that way for long. Don’t miss the carnage!
Due to an unfortunate turn of events, our wrestling ring has come to an untimely fiery demise. As a result, we are regretfully postponing our next House of Pain. That means instead of a 30th April battle, you can bank on a mega House of Pain event complete with Battle Royale on the 4th July, where titles will be flying and bodies pushed to their limits on our newly constructed square circle.
Within the last six months, the AWA has suffered two major setbacks, both times of a combustible nature. Last October, out School of Hard Knocks training camp was burnt to the ground by vandals. This time, our ring suffered a similar fate. Rather than wait for a third mishap or an errant lightning bolt, we’re mobilising massively to turn our luck around. The AWA is in a process of manufacturing a new wrestling ring. Unfortunately, we’re forced to postpone our next House of Pain event as a result, but will ensure that our June event is an even hotter prospect.
It’s coming, the land’s premiere wrestling organisation. That means some of the AWA’s top wrestling talent will be along to trade blows at the Upington Showgrounds on the 3rd and 4th of May, 2013. Make sure you don’t miss out on this special event and opportunity to see some professional athletes as work!
11th December | AWA House of Pain | 22 Man Coca Cola Royal Rumble
The Parow Civic Centre will once again host the ultimate Africa Wrestling Alliance experience. This one is big, featuring the usual motley crew of wrestling talent including the likes of The Oz, Johnny Palazzio and more. This wouldn’t be the AWA’s top calendar event however if it wasn’t for some very special additions such as the Coca Cola Royal Rumble. In this bout 22 men will enter the ring to contend for the Coca Royal Rumble title and the sought after belt that accompanies it. No man will have to work harder for the belt than the Bulldog, last year’s winner and subsequently the title defender. With this honour comes the immense pressure of being the first man to enter the squared circle. Does he have what it takes to retain the title? Does he have what it takes to outlast and outmanoeuvre 21 of the AWA’s fittest athletes?
You want more? How about three title matches? Shaun Koen will be present to defend the All Africa Heavyweight title he fought so hard to get in the first place. They don’t call this powerful and wizened wrestler the Lion of Africa for nothing, but even mighty lions have been known to fall at the jaws of the right sort of predator, or should we say predators? A clean fight should give the big man the advantage but you’ll have to see for yourself so whatever you do, don’t miss out!
Crowd-favourite, Mr Money is renowned for enjoying being the centre of attention. We’re not sure this is the kind of attention he had in mind though, now that he must face a mighty challenger to his reign as the Cruiserweight champion. Yet it is hard to imagine any other wrestler in this division able to outwit Mr Money, the people’s champ.
Next up is a three-way ladder bout that will determine who goes home with Max the Body’s Lightweight Championship belt. He’ll have to defend against the combined might of Ed Electric and Little Hillbilly, two spirited fighters with enough experience and diversity between them to really shake up The Body.
The House of Pain has a history of selling out its Parow Civic Centre venue, so book early to avoid disappointment. You don’t want to miss this. This is organised chaos. This is athletic. This is proper hero stuff. This is why you love wrestling.
