This newcomer to the AWA is shrouded in mystery, his real name eludes us and he has refused any interviews. What we do know is that this Goth persona is fuelled by hate and a burning desire for violence. This man joined the sport for himself and his own selfish thirst for the blood of others. His obsession with vampires and darkness translate in the ring to what is by far the most sadistic wrestler I have ever seen. The emotionless foreboding look only leaves his face momentarily for one of bliss when he is inflicting pain on his opponent. All I can say is the lightweight division had better watch out because there is a “Vampire” looking for blood!

At 18 the witch doctor gave Rashidi a mission to spread the word of this sinister religion and ever since he has travelled south, using his natural gift of Wrestling as a hook for his ominous missionary work.

rusta-1rusta-2rusta-31
A long standing member of the AWA, Rasta is a mainstay of the cruiser weight division. An ex-professional boxer, he was banned for life from the sport for constantly contravening its doping policies. Born and bred in Congo, his life was transformed by the music of Bob Marley and the examples of Marcus Garvey and Haile Selassie. This proud African resents his continents colonial past and is driven by anger and hatred for anything opposed to his pan-africanist Rastafari beliefs. Rasta’s angst has driven him to distraction; alongside Nick Fury and Johnny Pallazio his discourse has become that of destructive Rebellion rather than reform.

Latin America has long been associated with great professional wrestlers like Eddie Guerrero, Rey Misterio, Konnan and Gory Guerrero, just to name a few. In the AWA we are blessed with El-Matador, the Latino heartthrob. This star of South African wrestling has earned his respect from the AWA fans by always making himself accessible and never failing to sign autographs or have his picture taken. Few know that this Puerto Rican lightweight competitor was frowned upon by his family for taking up professional wrestling as his sporting kin had gained a reputation for producing some of Puerto Rico’s greatest soccer players. To save the family name he immigrated to South Africa and took the pseudonym El Matador, symbolising his willingness to take on anything and everything put in his way.

Perhaps the most exciting wrestler in the country; his high flying moves have rocketed him to super-stardom amongst fans of AWA. Revyv found his way into the AWA ring through pure passion for the sport. A long time backyard wrestler, he put his body on the line simply entertaining his friends with mad high risk moves off roofs and through tables in nightclubs. It was in this informal arena that he first perfected his phenomenal Corkscrew Press. With no challengers left in the backyard, Revyv was scouted by Shaun Koen to try his hand at professional wrestling and ever since the Cape Town local has flourished. Now a title contender for the AWA Tow Bars Cape Lightweight Championship many believe him to be the next man to hold the trophy, all we know is he is… Flipping Awesome.

Johnny Palazzio,
The self proclaimed “heart and soul of AWA”, Johnny Pallazio is a two time Cruiserweight Champion and the longest running title holder in the AWA. Despite his cocky arrogance and questionable principles there is no doubt he is one of the best wrestlers on the continent. Apart from his in ring success he has become a Radio and TV personality and is well known throughout sub-Saharan Africa from his time on AWF on E. Embracing his Italian routes the AWA Cruiserweight Champion has gained a reputation as a serial womanizer; the Latin charm mixed with his devil may care attitude has often left him in deep water with the ladies, not that this means much in the life this self serving superstar. Recently he has taken Lightweight Title holder, Nick Fury, under his wing and the two champions seem to have their sights on

The rags-to-riches story of this one time AWA Cruiserweight Champion is truly an inspiration. William McQueen was the hard working boy next door; first employed to build the ring on AWA tours he watched and learned from some of the best in the business. His quite ambition to be a part of AWA was gradually cultivated by those at the School of Hard Knocks where trainers noticed his extraordinary talent. Taking to the ring William McQueen soon won over the AWA fans and has become a crowd favourite. Growing in stature he is now one of the most experienced and respected in ring competitors. In 2008 he became only the second person to hold the AWA Cruiserweight title adding to his 2007 Royal Rumble victory which solidified him as a key big match performer in the promotion.
