AWA House of Pain – Parow Civic | Monday 8th August
Soon the Parow Civic Centre will reverberate once again with the thunder and spectacle of the AWA House of Pain. It’s the country’s premiere wrestling event hosted by Cape Town’s oldest wrestling organisation, star-studded with the finest athletes in the land. The likes of Shaun Koen, The Oz, Johnny Palazzio, Ed Electric and Freak Show will throw down in this epic show in a series of one-on-one and tag bouts before culminating in the flagship match, the 22-Man Battle Royale. The idea is simple, 22 men enter the squared circle but through a process of elimination over the top rope only one will walk away, victorious. This lucky master of the mat will also walk away with the much coveted AWA Golden Ticket. This will entitle this ‘last man standing’ to challenge anyone in the AWA for their title. Absolutely anyone, anytime – at their request. See the appeal in that? Palazzio, who is the current ticket-holder certainly does, as he could still cash it in on the night of the House of Pain, so watch out.
Throwing their collective hats into the ring will be six new wrestlers making their debut, products of the AWA School of Hard Knocks training camp. Do any of them have what it takes to stage an upset and leave with the Golden Ticket? Stranger things have happened, but stalwarts and ex-champions such as Vinnie Vegas, El-Marco and Mr Money will surely have something to say about that.
Come for a great night’s entertainment, bring your family or just your partner and stay as late as you like because the next day is Woman’s Day – how convenient is that?
