TV Airdate: 7/17/11

PWO Wrestling – your televised pro wrestling alternative, with more guts, more desire, and more heart, from a young hungry roster competing to steal the show. Old school meets new age and tradition meets tomorrow, its pro wrestling the way you want it to be! It’s Cleveland-owned, nationally renowned!

Watch this episode today at this link –

Scheduled for the broadcast…

PWO Champion Jason Bane vs. PWO TV Champion Bobby Beverly
Very rarely in professional wrestling do two singles champions meet each other in one-on-one competition, but this week on PWO TV, we deliver it! Beverly currently finds himself surrounded by three capable challengers to his title in Shiima Xion, Jason Gory and Michael Façade, while Bane has been the target of the wrath of Krimson, seemingly the final hurdle separating Krimson from possessing the PWO Title and the power that comes with it. Can Bobby Beverly keep gold around his waist? Can Bane keep Krimson from gaining possession of the goal and dream of a locker room full of competitors? Only one champion will have the momentum heading into their respective biggest career battles at Wrestlelution 4!

Full Circle: Josh Prohibition
At PWO Wrestlelution 2, Josh Prohibition lost the PWO Title in a classic near thirty-minute war with Johnny Gargano. Two years later, Josh is back, and targeting his two most famed partners and rivals – Johnny Gargano and “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross. Sunday, August 7 at PWO Wrestlelution 4, the three meet in a “Full Circle Three Way Dance” featuring the first 3 PWO Champions and first 3 Wrestlelution main events. This week on PWO TV, we’ll take a look back at Josh’s last match and get his thoughts present-day about Gargano, Cross, and his intentions at PWO Wrestlelution 4.

Brodie Lee’s PWO In-Ring Debut vs. Gregory Iron
On August 7 live and on iPPV, Brodie Lee will go face-to-face with Kevin Nash in a tag team encounter. With Marion Fontaine by his side, Brodie has sent some very physical messages to Nash, partner Aaron Draven, and friend Justin LaBar by assaulting several innocent victims up and down the PWO roster. However, this past week, one man was brave enough to stand up to adversity, as he so often has. Gregory Iron, whose partner Hobo Joe was injured by Brodie two weeks ago, actually this mammoth of a man to a one-on-one contest. Brodie & Fontaine laughed it off, but Iron has proved in the past he can never be counted out. Can he find a way to persevere or will Brodie show another potential sign of things to come at Wrestlelution 4?

Nicki Valentino vs. Ben Fruith
The alleged master of all things 80s was hit with stunning news recently when he found out he’d be forced to battle 80s legend and Hall of Famer Tito Santana at Wrestlelution 4! How will the alleged master of fanny packs & zubaz counter-act this in his first match since the news broke? Will Ben Fruith send a message to Bobby Shields through his Sex Appeal partner Valentino one week after promising to stand up for himself and win back his trophy Shields had stolen from him?

Visit to witness AWF AussieMania On Demand. View and Purchase from 1 August.



The first week of July once again saw the US based and owned WWE come to Australia and play to massive amounts of fans. Sydney and Melbourne once again did 1 million dollar plus houses, and other cities did almost as well. On top of the gate there were no doubt huge dollars made in merchandise sales. The WWE live are a force to be reckoned with in the once per year live format across Australia when it comes to drawing people to the shows and getting their fans spending money.
When speaking to some of those who went to the WWE live events most of the people I spoke with said the matches were just ok, with some even saying the bout quality was so-so. Tickets on average were approx. $150 each, and merchandise per head approx. $50!

On 1 August the Australasian Wrestling Federation will hold its first Internet Pay Per View event hosted by World Wrestling Network ( entitled “Aussie Mania”. This event is available to anyone who has internet access. I am encouraging everyone who has any interest in pro-wrestling and anyone I know to buy this IPPV to help build AWF and in hand Australian Wrestling. I am not promising the best show in the history of pro-wrestling, but I am promoting an exciting and enjoyable wrestling card produced in Sydney, Australia by passionate Australians here trying to build up the Australian wrestling business domestically. I am asking fans to spare $9.99 to purchase and view this event on IPPV, or alternatively $20 plus postage on DVD.
I have been involved in wrestling since my early teens. I ran a wrestling newsletter in high school, at 17 I began wrestling training, and at 18 I started wrestling locally. By 20 I was helping to promote Australian shows. At 21 I began promoting the Australasian Wrestling Federation. That was in 1999. I am now 34 and wrestling has just scraped me by financially for the last many years. Wrestling is my passion. I have been lucky to have wrestled some excellent wrestlers to help me along on my journey. I have had opportunities wrestling internationally. For many wrestlers involved in Australia it is their dream to go to the USA and make it big. My dream has always been to help make “Aussie Wrestling” popular here in Australia.
Financially it is a struggle to be a wrestler in Australia, as I accept it is in many parts of the world. Promoting wrestling is a very time consuming and sometimes thankless business. In Australia currently both wrestlers and promoters are mainly fuelled by passion for the wrestling business. It troubles me that there are fans that won’t give an AWF show a chance to help support Australian wrestlers, when they will spend money at a WWE show like it’s not an issue. Of the small amount of people that have ventured to AWF events, a large amount of those people that I received feedback from have made comments along the lines of “I wasn’t sure about the show coming in, but I had a better time at the AWF than at the WWE. It was great value for money”. Overwhelmingly feedback has always been positive from those attending. Now is the time to give AWF a real chance.
The afore mentioned reasons have led me to promoting AussieMania as an IPPV. I would like people who haven’t seen what is on their doorstep to be able to give the AWF consideration and see our show, featuring Australian wrestlers. I would in the process like AWF to make some money out of this event and get out of financial peril so it can grow. I would like to assist more Australian Wrestlers become “professional” here in Australia and aid the in ring product to continue to improve. I would like Australian Wrestling to mature and become a successful part of Australian culture and have a respect among its own people, like it did in the 1970’s.
AussieMania may be the first chance for some to see Australian Wrestling. If this is you please give it a shot. If you don’t enjoy the event, see it as a donation to improving the product (which it will be), and that you will be helping to bring a better Australian wrestling product to future audiences.
If you are someone that has been to a local wrestling show in the past and has been disappointed we are hoping to erase this with AussieMania and future AWF IPPV events. There are many local independent promotions, some that are of good quality, some that are not. Unfortunately the bad have jaded some fans on the idea of Australian wrestling and have prevented them from attending future shows. I ask you to please judge the AWF show and it’s wrestlers on their merits and give AussieMania a chance with a clean slate. As mentioned earlier we are not hailing that the show is the best in the history of wrestling, or even in AWF history, however AussieMania is a solid showing of Australian Wrestling matches and talent and a great introduction to following the product. We are sure you will find enjoyment in the show, and may even be surprised how much you like it. It certainly warrants your interest and purchase as an event.
It is truly time to support our own. There is a great wealth of talent in Australia who deserve to be seen and appreciated. By large numbers of fans purchasing AussieMania, it will help facilitate some much needed funding for facilities, show materials and improvements to AWF and its wrestlers. This would truly be possible if all the fans that attended the WWE events around Australia this June purchase and support the first AWF Australian IPPV event AussieMania. I am almost begging. Please don’t let this be a chance for another time. Now is the time for AWF to help build up Australian Wrestling to its potential and expose our great fighting athletes to the people of Australia and the world and your purchase will help facilitate this.
If you don’t have internet access, are uncertain about the IPPV format, or would simply like a hard copy of the event to keep as a souvenir and start to build your collection, AWF is also offering AussieMania in DVD format for $25 which includes postage in Australia, or $30 to anywhere in the world available from 1 September. As a collector’s edition the first 50 DVDs will even be signed by Aussie Ozbone. Payments can be made via Paypal at or via cheque or money order made to AWF Wrestling at PO Box 473, Plumpton, NSW, 2761, Australia.
In closing I just want to reiterate how important the success of AussieMania is to AWF and wrestling in Australia. I really hope you will purchase and support the event. As fans you have a lot to gain by doing so. The decision is up to you. I hope you will seize this opportunity to support your local Fed… AWF, and purchase AussieMania on IPPV available from 1 August, On Demand at for $9.99, or on DVD for $20 plus postage from 1 September via the AWF postal address or Paypal. It is an investment worth making in Australian wrestling and I think it will make you feel good if you really care about wrestling.
Further AussieMania event details can be found at the AWF Website at Support AWF and please purchase AussieMania! Every purchase will really help wrestling in Australia and start to build a better future.​=rlvviBvht78 – Pics thanks to Samuel Dickinson

It’s Australia’s biggest annual Wrestling event, it’s PsychoticSlam! Since 1999 PsychoticSlam has been AWF’s biggest event of the year, and 2011’s edition promises again to be a great extension of the tradition as we return to Blacktown RSL for a world wide Internet Pay Per View edition of AWF Wrestling.

Elite Wrestling has been continuing to build momentum, as Jay Law has hounded AWF Champion Iron Ben Coles over recent months as he tries to take the Australasian Championship. Now to intensify the war, Law has added Japanese international wrestling star Dick Togo to the squad to continue his assault on Coles. Iron Ben has countered by replying with returning Detonation Crew tag partner Powerhouse Theo. The scene is set for a huge main event, with the balance of power in AWF at stake.

A huge undercard is also in store and will feature Great Aussie Rumble winner Concrete Davidson receiving a Commonwealth Championship shot against The Multicultural Society’s Tama Williams, and the 300 kg tandem of Mass Transit will challenge for the AWF Tag Team Championships against Party Trix.
Other wrestlers scheduled to appear include the arrogant and muscled “Mad Turk” Hussain, the imposing force of Blakestone, the highflying masked sensation El Technico plus many more wrestlers to be announced soon.

– TNT & Selene opened the show.
– TNT bought out Iron Ben Coles and introduced Rachel Rose into the Detonation Crew and congratulated her on graduating wrestling school. The Multicultural Society interrupted and Kebab said the Detonation Crew would pay for what happened at AussieMania and CB Cochran has it coming too. Tama then said he would take Del Fuego’s place in the Main Event. TNT said he had a surprise in store for the MS and the main was now set as a Tag Team bout.
– The Illusionist made the Grim Reaper appear in the opening match, startling Linstrom and leading to him being pinned. Linstrom protested after the bout he wasn’t getting a fair shake.
– Originally scheduled to be a 3 way, Tasman stated that he saw Q & Traffic team at Supanova and knows he’s in for trouble. Traffic & Q said they dont want to fight each other and wanted a 2 on 1. Tasman protested and said he’d get a partner which turned out to be the man who beat him at Supanova, El Technico. In the finale, Tasman turned on Technico and pushed him off the top rope leaving him for dead while “Mass Transit” double teamed and finished him off.
– TNT held a graduation ceremony for trainees who had just successfully passed the competent course at the AWF School of Pro-Wrestling. Michael Pisano, Kurt Savage & Jamie Bozza were awarded with certificates. Baby Devine came out and interrupted saying that none of the wrestlers where Elite material and that Rachel Rose had stuck her nose in Baby’s business and that she would teach her a lesson. Rose then attacked Devine and defeated her with the Rose Thorn.
– As TNT called for intermission Tony Kebab attacked the exiting CB Cochran and punched him on the floor many times, leaving CB dazed.
– Shane Saw upset Tag Team Champion DJ Fusion with a rollup. TNT interviewed Saw after and he said that Sir Loin would win the Young Lion’s Title upcoming.
– In the Young Lion’s Championship bout Baby Devine tried to interfere, but Shane Saw countered and carried her off. However Linstrom threw a steel water bottle to Law who cracked Loin and scored the win.
– In the Main event Iron Ben Coles announced the Detonation Crew’s surprise partner to be Powerhouse Theo. Theo had a long beard and hair now, and had lost weight but was more defined. He made an impact in the match and Tama and Anubis were shocked. In the end Kebab pulled out ref OJ Fitzpatrick and clobbered him after Coles hit the Iron Splash. Anubis and Tama then looked like they had the bout won, but then CB Cochran emerged and pulled out Kebab and clocked him. Theo then scored The Powerbomb on Tama and CB counted the win for the Detonation Crew.
