Yep, They Do Wrestle in South Australia By BoxCar Ox

Guest blogger this week, its over to Boxcar Ox....

In the older times of South Australian wrestling there wasn’t much to choose from. A bit before I moved back into the thick of the city there were companies like Joint Promotions holding shows. 

Move on 10 years after Joint Promotions and there are many promotions in Adelaide and a few of these old veterans have split their contributions to different ones, I’ll note down a few I believe to be the biggest or well known companies.

You have promotions like Riot City Wrestling which boasts a large roster and has had other wrestlers from interstate and overseas to compete. You have such wrestlers like The Bassos, The Armstrongs, S.M.A.S.H, Brodie Marshall and many more local talent. 

Up in the northern areas of Adelaide you have the crew of Snake Pit Pro Wrestling. These guys have garnered a following with their weekly shows with a couple being held each week. Again another promotion with many wrestlers and trained by John E. Radic from the old Joint Promotions days, they definitely have a strong roster to support these shows.

For the creme de la creme and the promotion I know most of Wrestle Rampage. Run by such guys as Jag Hartley Jackson, Jonah Rock, Damian Slater to name a few this company has featured numerous faces from the old JP days before it split into the different companies and all these wrestlers formed different paths. 

This company believes in good wrestling and expects the best which is obvious considering quite a few people that have walked through the doors are now mainstays on the WWE roster. People like TM61, Buddy Murphy, Peyton Royce, and Billie Kay have found success after being picked up. 

From these promotions though I find the best wrestlers from Wrestle Rampage they are true professionals which have a good sense for the business also leading the renowned Pro Wrestling Dojo they teach a lot of great talent....Even going through the dojo myself I have learnt quite a lot from these guys in all different facets of professional wrestling.

In closing the landscape of professional wrestling in South Australia will continue to grow especially with all the veterans spread out in different companies also teaching their wisdom over their years in the business, and hopefully this will evolve into bigger success for professional wrestling as a whole.

MCW v TMDK Australian Wrestling does enjoy a WAR

all MCW talent photos courtesy of Melbourne City Wrestling and corylockwood.com


Since  I started being a wrestling fan in mid 1969,  i've  got to see just about all the major, occurences and issues from Kevin Steen swerving El Generico to the nWo invading, the first Starcade and Wrestlemania , from Magnum and Tully in that cage match, The Roadies turning heel on the Midnights, from Bryan Danielson v Nigel Mc Guniess at Sydney Uni  to Ronnie Miller beating Harley on national tv in Australia...Yep, Ive had the great good fortune to see all these occurences either through being there or the use of technology....BUT...and I will never ever change my mind on this, the greatest thing Ive ever seen was something that occured in Aussie in the early 70's . the media called it "THE WAR" ...and it was a promo fans dream....here's a couple of my favourites

all the faces of WCW Australia, and their was quite the collection, Mark Lewin, King Curtis, Spiros Arion and Wadi Ayoub among others, got into a almighty stink with Big Bad John and his army which in its time included Bulldog Brower, Waldo Von Erich, Abdullah the Butcher, Hiro and Hito Tojo and Killer Karl Kox ( but he turned on John and the rest) .

Now Its a given that any good heel has to sell his intentions like he actually believes it and to this point Big Bad John done an outstanding job cranking up the heat on the angle, basically, he believed in his heart that Lewin and his crew were getting all the top money , or gravy as he called it, and they werent sharing amongst the boys, this got him annoyed and thus the war began.

Lewin, Curtis and Arion were all at one time, or sometimes even at the same time,  jumped by The Army and the carnage was immense, blood was flowing in the aisles of all the buildings that hosted the wrestling, there were cage matches, six man and 8 man tags , refs were getting snotted on a regular basis, commentators were threatened, yep there was mayhem on an epic scale, cant honestly believe if any of the attending aussie crowds got hot enough to attack the heels or not, after all we aint the yanks, some of those fans over the years have even took pot shots at heels .

Highlights (lowlights) included  the Tojo brothers  throwing salt in Mark Lewins eyes and Lewin trashing the set...and there was a cage match where Fuji got sloppy with his blade and sliced his arm wide open.....Big Bad John and Brower hanging Lewin in the ropes, the voice of aussie wrestling, Jack little reminded us that the  ropes were steel cable wrapped in HARD RUBBER and the resulting schmozz with  blood flying everywhere was great...Big Bad John brain busting Wallaby Bob McMaster (  the best ref ever) on t.v...or to quote commentator Mike Cleary, Wallaby Bob is down and  knocked rotten

The War, I think its safe to say was the greatest angle in aussie wrestling history and i firmly believe that it still stands up today as sheer genius in booking

So as you can tell, I enjoy a bit of turmoil and rampant aggravation in my wrestling, and over the years since the war in aussie I got  to see some great heels , Kenny Dunlop, Lofty Pickford and The Black Scot for starters and then in slightly more recent times all the members of Four Nations (Jack Bonza, Mick Moretti, Madison Eagles, Sean Kustom and Adam Hoffman) Davis Storm, Michelle Hasluck, Adam Brooks and Kelly Anne have impressed with their evilosity and general sneakiness.

BUT at the top of my heel list of the modern era is one Jag Hartley Jackson, who I first saw in a tag team with Havoc back a while ago, admittedly I havent seen a lot of him since I busted my neck, but his called the South Australian Serial Killer, so I reckon its safe to say he has been fairly constant in his demeanour, ring wise, , and thus to this blogaroo subject.

Jag and his mates in TMDK invaded Melbourne City Wrestling, and like Big Bad John, he seem highly offended that MCW are calling themselves the premier group in Aussie wrestling, when its quite obvious that Jag firmly belives that "The Mighty Dont Kneel" are far and away the best group in Aussie (world ) wrestling.

Alongside Mr Jackson we have Jonah Rock, Slex and Marcius Pitt...

 Ive seen Slex around for a while now  and have been watching his run to become to the first 2 time MCW champ, let me just say thet Slex like Jag has been fairly consistent in his demeanour over all the time Ive seen him.....

Then come's  Jonah Rock who i've seen mostly in EPW and his quite briliant as the monster heel with a bad attitude, the fourth member in this crew of miscreants is Marcius Pitt who Ive seen only in EPW Im told he worked Newy Pro but i didnt see those shows, matter of fact Jag, Rock and Pitt were included in what ive said was the greatest six man tag in recent memory when they participated in the EPW State of Origin S.A v W.A...an absolutely BRILLIANT hit out for all three guys, mind you Rock and Pitt were against each other after Rock turned on Pitt and joined team SA and recently Pitt has been almost Pillman like in his MCW run, threatening to whip out little Marcus and pee on the MCW straps, suffice it to say they will continue to blur the lines of heeldom/faceism OR maybe I should stick to one promotion and I wont get so dizzy ;)

ANYWAY, Jag and the boys have hit MCW hard and fast at Ballroom Brawl the conflagration came together when the TMDK boys hit the ring during the MCW title match between Jag and Elliot Sexton ( who I also thought was in TMDK, Im getting a migraine) and then after Slex swerved every f**ker the TMDK flattened everybody who hit the ring including strangling Edmund the ref with the bottom rope ...

they then gave all the MCW fans a friendly farewell (not) and boogied on out of Thornbury ready to rumble ..

then recently came New Horizons and TMDK had finagle themselves a raft of title shots, two of which they won ,Slex and Pitt got the tag straps off Juicy and JXT and Jonah got himself the InterCommonwealth strap after some evil sheanigans by his TMDK cohort Slex, Jag had another shot at Sexton but his mates charged in and a DQ was called, and after yet more mass carnage,  Jag  stated quite eloquently that he dont need the MCW strap the only intials he wants areTMDK...

rest assured this aint over by a long shot and whatever happens I do enjoy turmoil and Jag and his mates and the MCW crew are supplying my wants and needs rather well thanks.

This is gonna get interesting methinks

MC Dub MC Dub..Its the Melbourne City Wrestling Blogaroo

I have been very fortunate since the golden age of technology began because the intraweb has allowed me to get a look at many wrestling promotions that normally I would have only heard about through word of mouth.., I've already proffesed my like for those mad buggers from W.A EXPLOSIVE PRO WRESTLING  and ive done a blogaroo or three about my local company NEWY PRO...Now its time to give a look at then blokes south of the border, NO not CMLL, the other south of the border, VICTORIA, and the promotion therein known to all and assundrie as MELBOURNE CITY WRESTLING.

Just like EPW Id heard about the company over the past couple of years but only recently got to see (and purchase) some shows ...and cracking shows they are...MCW also appears to be a fertile ground for the talent acquisition department for NXT cause a couple of MCW regulars now work full time for Triple H , and that can only be a good thing

MCW also had a couple of all time aussie classics in their time, the trainer of champions CARLO CANNON and the original mad bugger himself KRACKERJACK....Carlo has produced more talent than humanly possible, I think he filled up Lance Storms world of hurt the first season..and for all the talent Cannon has trained, Krackers has probably punched most of 'em, the original mad Bastard is a Aussie original and if there is a Australian Wrestling Hall of Fame, both blokes would be first ballot entries...

Lets dig into the current state of play and the workers that have grabbed my attention 

 Dowie James, was the first MCW champ I ever saw courtesy of vimeoalong with Coynes intro, after which I thought he better be a bit good after that and he was,  He  fought off many MCW regulars after he won the Intercommonwealth title but has since lost it to his ex partner in The Loose and The Wreckless Adam Brooks...Dowie is also the proud recipient of Lord Andy Coynes OUTSTANDING ring intros...

The current reigning MCW champ AND the one regular Ive seen outside of Melbourne, yep, Elliot cam and worked for Newy Pro one night in Gosford, just around the corner from Casa Del Recking Ball...and what a worker , and his over,  almost a s over as Concrete Davidson at a Gosford show...and thats OVER ...the crowd reckon Sexton Rocks and I have to agree.
Time to speak about the only bloke probably more over than Dowie and Sexton, the one and only Mr Juicy, now to be fair the first time i saw him at a PWA show in Campbelltown , I didnt like him, probably cause he dropped his daks and scared my mates daughter out of liking wrestling, she has since got back into it , but I reckon if his gonna do it, the promotion might fkn warn people not to bring 8 year old girls to the show...just saying...BUT....since ive seen him on MCW shows teaming up with JXT his got back into my good graces , his is about as over as you can get in a promotion and to be fair he can work his arse off , pardon the pun, his recently got the tag gold after chasing the Estate about so good on him ...give em hell J
The Jurassic Punk...what a gimmick, hell of a wrestler, even if he does look like Sheamus after a diet, a proud owner of quite the impressive brainbuster and a match winning Anarkick, recently had a tete -a - tete with Lochy Hendricks which is sure to proiduce some cracking matches.

If Juicy is the heart of MCW and Sexton is the face then Travis and Andy are the frikkin tonsils...I find it odd that some wrestling promotions in aussie dont have announce teams for their shows, live or otherwise ...I know , for me that a great announce team is half the event , they add the colour , and thees two color in just fine ...Travis is the Joey Styles / Jim Ross of the duo and Lord Andy Coyne is the color man, who isnt a heel, figure that one out, Andy is also the charter president of the Dowie James Appreciation Society, must be, with those intros he gives him, Lord Andy Coynes gonna be shattered if Dowie ever turns heel....like I said the tonsils of the promotion ...brilliant beyond words.

THE WOMEN OF MELBOURNE CITY ( well the ones ive seen anyway)

KELLY ANNE - "The Beautiful Monster" first time i ve ever seen her was on a MCW video, won over straight away , KA dont muck around, gets straight and commences to kicking all kinds of arse, and the beating up of Merch Girl was heel brilliance....NXT in her future methinks
SHAZZA MCKENZIE - The sheila  that drives them into a frenzy , the sheila called ...well, you know the rest, been one of my favourite aussie wrestlers since the first time I saw her, which was on a PWA show (I think, could of been AWF) Shaz has worked in Shimmer and NXT and more importantly, she has been visiting with Newy Pro to my town of late so you can imagine how stoked I was ...the argument coud be made that she is the queen of aussie wrestling , an argument I wont argue with.

The Queen of The Central Coast , a Blue Floozie and co holder of the PWWA title, once a again a Newy Pro regular who visits ReckingBallia to get cheered, super over, well, from what Ive seen, havent seen her heeling it up yet, but zI have no doubt she would be super at it....the collector of donuts will be around for a while I reckon and over the whole time

JESSICA TROY - The other Blue Floozie, and Newy pro regular, a decidely evil person, powered by jealousity, well, in Gosford anyway, also saw Jess at a PWA show and she done good there as well.

Yes Yes, I realise  they have worked elsewhere, but you have to be impressed with the strike rate that MCW has getting roster members onto the WWE Network...Now, the first time I saw Tennille she was on Lance Storms World of Hurt, but the other two I'd only seen on MCW vids that I discovered...BUT... all three have outstanding talent and thoroughly deserve the success they are achieving

HARDWAY INC - Seen the boys whoop all kinds of arse a couple of times , seem to be the work horses of the promotion and a damn good job their doing 
THE ARMSTRONGS - similar to Hardway, seen the brothers only a time or two but impressed on every occasion
THE ESTATE - EMMANUELLS, COUSIN ALI AND SEBASTIAN WALKER - NOW, for these clods...I have to admit that niether guy does nothing  for me, but cudos for the having the work ethic required for making into the ring, dont mean I have to like 'em...nuff said

ADAM BROOKS - first time I ever saw Brooksy he was turning on Dowie, mongrel, but Ive seen him a time or two since then, absolutley brilliant worker with a totally detestable gimmick....cudo's young man cudo's
JOSH THE AXE SHOOTER - Jimmy Havocs young boy, but besides that , Axe is a helluva worker, seen him on a few MCW vimeos and he impressed every time...keep on shooting young fella
JXT - One half of the MCW tag champs, and simply brilliant, has a hint of Jeff Hardy about him with a dash of Alex Shelley added in ...balances the team with Juicy wonderfully...excellent stuff.
TOMMY HELLFIRE - Once again, a non starter in the Recking Ball favourites list, seen him in one cage match with Sexton, that was enough for me, he done alright but does nothing for me .


SLEX...MCMASSIVE....MADISON EAGLES....JAG.... MATT DIAMOND...ROBBIE EAGLES...DAMIAN SLATER  - If your looking for a list of top flight aussie workers then here it is and they have all worked a MCW show a time or two, recently saw Jag and Slex get stuck in on a MCW show, i can only hope you saw it, as for The Eagles and Matt Diamond , they have visited Reckingballia with Newy pro and Slater and McMassive have a place in my collection courtesy of EPW shows on vimeo...look the lot of 'em up, you wont be disappointed


JIMMY HAVOC ...TYLER BATE - if you've ever seen my twitter, you will realise that im a fan of Havoc, Ive got him working many a Progress show and the occasional RevPro gig and hs bonz in all of 'em, recently saw Havoc and Nicholls bounce each other around the MCW arena, a 5 ***** match if their ever was one,  as for the Englands toughest moustache, first saw him on a PCW show(Preston City Wrestling) then he showed up in Thornbury which was pretty cool, Bate is old school in style, very reminiscent of Doug Williams in my mind, if he ended up in a blue with fellow pommy Gentleman Jack Gallgaher and I saw it , I would be most happy...both of 'em can come back to the colony anytime they want IMHO

MCW also recently showed up in a copy of FSM magazine, a rare occureence for a aussie promotion but highly welcome.....Anyway, do yourselves a favour , shit I sound like the Molly Meldrum of Wrestling, and grab some of the stuff off vimeo, you wont be sorry.
