Tables Match: TMDK vs The Dropkicks

tables

During 2014, the Dropkicks have proven to be a thorn in the side of TMDK. Leo Pratt and Scotty Ryan will have to face the consequences of their actions in a Tables Match at ReAwakening XIII on November 29th.

TMDK are one of the most successful factions in Australian Wrestling. While team leaders Mikey Nicholls and Shane Haste flying the flag in Japan, ‘The People’s Hero’ Marcius Pitt has lead the group to success locally. Forming a formidable partnership with ‘The Samoan Savage’ Jonah Rock, the pair quickly became EPW Tag Team Champions.

Being at the top brings about competition and there is always someone looking to reach the top and make a name for themselves. After suffering an embarrassing loss to Pitt and Rock at Evolution, Pratt and Ryan would fire their first shot during the Tag Team Eliminator match costing TMDK the titles at Hell or Highwater. At Road To Glory the duo would interfere in the #1 contender’s rumble, costing the Samoan Savage a shot at the EPW Championship.

The Dropkicks have been wanting to be seen as serious competitors in Explosive Pro Wrestling’s Tag Team Division. They now have the ultimate opportunity to do so, but have the pair bitten off more they can chew. It is a huge game of risk or reward Pratt and Ryan have decided to take. The gamble will either leave them broken and battered or rewarded with their biggest win.

Will TMDK gain some payback over the young upstarts or will The Dropkicks be able to pull off the biggest victory of their career?

Four Sides of Strange

fourway

Four of Australian Wrestling’s most outrageous characters are set to compete in a Four Sides of Strange match at ReAwakening XIII.

The flamboyant Gorgeous Garry has spent part of the year chasing his dream of super stardom, filming TV commercials and trying out for various acting roles. The Gorgeous One returns to action after his embarrassing loss to Hughesy in a Slop Bucket match at State of Origin.

Over the past 15 months, former 2 time EPW Tag Team Champion, the self proclaimed ‘Prince of Perth’ Jay Taylor has not tasted victory in Explosive Pro Wrestling. Taylor’s cockiness and preoccupation with members of the opposite sex has cost him several occasions. Can JT end 2014 with a rare victory?

Everytime he makes an entrance, ‘The Plus Size Party Animal’ Sam Fantastic gets the party started. Since making his EPW debut at Goldrush, Fantastic has impressed fans with the athletic ability he possesses for a man of his size.

One of Australia’s most loved characters Mr. Juicy is set to make his second EPW appearance. Fresh off a tour of New Zealand, the Melbourne based Juicy was last seen in Explosive Pro Wrestling in 2013 competing in a match with fellow big man ‘Mad’ Mike Massive.

Which of these four larger than life characters will walk away with the victory? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean. Tickets are available NOW!

 

 

Invitational Tournament Semi Final: Slater vs Hughesy

DslatsVsHughesy

The longest running tournament in Australian wrestling will come to a conclusion at ReAwakening XIII on November 29th. Eight men entered this year’s tournament with hopes of adding their name to the trophy and earning a EPW Championship shot in the future and only four remain.

The first Semi Final match up will see the “Golden Boy of Australian Wrestling” battle it out with the drinking section’s favourite son. On paper this seems to be a real mismatch, but it would be an error of judgement to discount the determination and fight in the underdog.

Damian Slater made his return to Explosive Pro Wrestling in early 2014 after being absent for several years making a name for himself competing around the world, determined to finally make his mark and challenge for the EPW Championship. He didn’t have to wait for long gaining a shot at the title on his first night back after taking out the #1 contender Dan Moore ahead of his title match with then champion, ‘The Smashing Machine’ Chris Vice at Goldrush.

The South Australian would come close to returning home with the title but Vice was able to walk away with the belt still around his waist. After advancing to the Semi Finals with a win over the ‘Legion of One’ Jarrad Slate, a victory over the man from the local will see the Golden Boy one step closer to achieving his goal.

Hughesy, EPW’s lovable larrikan has never held such lofty goals and has always been happy to have a laugh and drink between his battles in the ring. But when the need to fight arises, that’s when a different side of Hughesy appears.

After defeating his good friend Adam Banks to advance to the Semi Final stage, Hughesy was viciously attacked by his former Team Red Can partner. Fired up following his former friend’s betrayal, the man from the local is ready for the biggest singles match of his career at EPW’s biggest show of the year.

Will the Golden Boy cruise his way into the Invitational Tournament final or will the underdog give him a fight he doesn’t expect? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean. Tickets are available NOW!

 

Hardcore Championship SCRAMBLE

don

On November 29th, ‘The Don’ Michael Morleone will have held the EPW Hardcore Championship for a record 810 days, just over 2 years and 1 month. At ReAwakening XIII, the Don’s reign is in serious jeopardy as the title will be up for grabs in a 10 minute Hardcore Scramble match.

For the better part of 2014, the Don along with his manager ‘The Mind’ Lukey Bolland have used a combination of smarts and underhand tactics to hold on to the gold. At Road to Glory it looked like a fan named Barry Shaw, had done the unthinkable and taken out the $3000 Hardcore Challenge, becoming the new champion. It was not to be as the Mind would live up to his nickname having the odds stacked in the champions favour from all angles.

With the Don and Lukey having their way for so long, EPW matchmakers have now put the champion and his manager in a situation that they will not be able to weasel their way of so easily.

Will the Don and Lukey find a way to escape their way out of this with the title in  their grasp or will we see the longest championship reign in EPW history come to an end? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean.

Invitational Tournament Semi Final: Zenith vs Storm

stormvzenith

The longest running tournament in Australian wrestling will come to a conclusion at ReAwakening XIII on November 29th. Eight men entered this year’s tournament with hopes of adding their name to the trophy and earning a EPW Championship shot in the future and only four remain.

This Semi Final match up will see a clash of generations as one of Explosive Pro Wrestling’s rising stars comes face to face with an EPW original. Hayden Zenith and ‘The Messiah’ Davis Storm are certainly no strangers to each other, both men bring part of the year long war between the new generation of EPW and the Solution.

Zenith, a former Rising Star Cup winner,  is one of EPW’s most exciting high flyers and is looking to work his way up the EPW ranks. After suffering an injury at the hands of a destructive Marcius Pitt, the youngster competed in his Quarter Final match with Jay Taylor at a serious disadvantage. Having to compete with crutches and basically with the use of only one good leg, Zenith had luck on his side as Taylor’s cockiness cost him severely when the Rising Star rolled him up for the schoolboy pinfall to advance to the Semi Final round.

The Messiah is one of the most experienced and cunning competitors in EPW. Storm has been a part of Explosive Pro Wrestling since Day 1 and is a record equalling 4 time EPW Champion. The once fan favourite turned on EPW and its fans believing he and his Solution teammates knew what was best for the company. Storm is coming off a big win over TMDK’s Jonah Rock in the Quarter Finals and will be looking to capitalise on any weakness Zenith will bring into the contest and use it to his advantage to reach his third Invitational Tournament Final.

Will Storm have the Solution for victory or will Zenith cause a huge upset? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean. Tickets are available NOW!

 

 

Amber: A Woman Scorned

Amber

After several months of being mistreated at the hands of ‘The Behemoth’ Sebastian Sander, the stunning Amber was discarded by the EPW Champion at Road to Glory. The now former girlfriend would be dragged out of Bodyslam Central by EPW officials at the request of the champion.

It had looked like Amber was set to be the one who would be the one to make the break after Sander’s continued public humiliation and abuse, but it would be the Behemoth who would call an end to it. With a one track mind and an appetite for destruction, Sander only has eyes for the championship belt and will do anything to make sure any distractions are dealt with swiftly.

With Sebastian Sander on the path to his first championship reign mid last year, the sultry vixen made a play for the Behemoth. The pair would soon on top of the EPW world when Sander scored the pinfall in a 6 man tag match to claim his first EPW Championship.

The champion was dominant and Amber was there to guide her man at ringside. Things would soon start to turn in the pair’s fortunes and relationship as Sander would lose the title to the ‘Smashing Machine’ Chris Vice at ReAwakening XII.

Blaming her for the championship loss and his lack of focus, Sander would make both Amber and his opponents pay as he laid a path of destruction to another shot at EPW’s most valued prize. The anguish and total embarrassment, the champion put her through was at times tough to watch, but Amber would still remain by the champions side.

Several times it looked like she was ready to walk away but the success of Sander made it hard to do so. Once a couple that seemed to have everything, the partnership between Sander and Amber is now over.

Will Amber make  an appearance at ReAwakening XIII? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean. Tickets are available NOW!

EPW Championship STEEL CAGE Match

20man

The Steel Cage match is one of the most dangerous and exciting contests in professional wrestling. At Explosive Pro Wrestling’s biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII, three men with one goal will be locked inside the confines of a 15 foot high steel cage.

On only two previous occasions in ReAwakening history has there been a steel cage match and on November 29th, these three men will put it all on the line for the most valued prize in Explosive Pro Wrestling, the EPW Championship …

The current EPW Champion, ‘The Behemoth’ Sebastian Sander has been a destructive force both in and out of the ring in 2014. Sander’s hunger to be champion has seen the big man put several competitors out of commission including Chris Vice, Dan Moore and Hayden Zenith.

Since winning the championship from the Smashing Machine at July’s Hell or Highwater event, The Behemoth has sent a loud and clear message to the locker room, that he will do anything to remain the champion. Sander’s intense sole focus resulted in the firing of his long time valet Amber at Road to Glory after several months of humiliation.

Now completely free of what he believes was a distraction of his focus, who knows what kind of single minded brutality the Behemoth plans to unleash against his trapped opponents.

After suffering a fractured skull at the hands of Sander following their contest at Hell or Highwater, ‘The Smashing Machine’ Chris Vice made a surprise return at Road To Glory, and would end up winning the 20 man #1 contender’s rumble after last eliminating Damian Slater to earn a shot at Sander.

Vice had thought to have been put on the shelf indefinitely by Sander following their Street Fight contest at Hell or Highwater, the Behemoth was far from happy to see his long time rival and biggest threat to his championship earn a spot in the main event of the biggest show of the year.

Can the Smashing Machine gain some payback on the Behemoth, and claim the gold for a second time?

The third and final competitor, Alex ‘AK-47′ Kingston has had a long and challenging road to ReAwakening. After losing at championship match to Vice at January’s Great Aussie Bash, Kingston was ready to walk away from EPW.

A challenge was soon issued by the then head of the Board of Directors, Kingston would face off against a gauntlet of former EPW Champions and if he passed the gauntlet, he would get one more chance at the gold.

Over several months, Kingston would pass each challenger that was put in front of him and at Road to Glory would advance to the ReAwakening XIII main event after defeating Kiel Steria in a gruelling Last Man Standing match that would see both men put their bodies on the line in the pursuit of victory.

During the Gauntlet to Greatness, Kingston showed that the fire inside to become EPW Champion burns brightly. Will the high flyer pull off the biggest victory of his career and etch his name in the EPW history books?

Who will leave the Steel Cage with the EPW Championship around their waist? Find out on November 29th when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents the biggest show of the year, ReAwakening XIII at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean. Tickets are available NOW!
