26th March 2011

- Iron Jay Coles remains Australasian Champion sfter recent successful defences against Mad Turk Hussain and Scotty Club. Future challengers lined up for Jay include a Title Bout at Supanova Brisbane against seasoned Queensland pro Mason Childs on 2 April, and 23 April will see Jay face The Samoan Warrior at the AWF Dojo Minto. In recent weeks Jay has been in Fiji doing further promotional work for sponsor I & J Foods.
- AWF Tag Team Champions "Party Trix" have been dazzling the competition since defeating "The Cornershop Connection" last October. It appears that the Cornershop Connection's inability to get the Titles back in January has caused a rift in the team, and Frankie Fettucini has told AWF he is heading back to Italy for a while to go into training. Meanwhile Party Trix will contend with challenging tandems from Elite Wrestling, and will also have a special handicap match against Jay Law on 23 April, stemming from their spectacular double pin at the 19 March AWF Dojo event.

- Young Lion's Champion "Scientific" Robert Barnes has been gearing his Elite Wrestling group to more focus in recent months, with the faction in contention for the Tag and Australasian Championship. At the recent Dojo event, Barnes even made a sacrifice for the team, laying down for partner Jay Law so he could advance in the Partners Collide Tournament to potentially gain an Australasian Championship Title shot. Barnes has the likes of Spaceboy Dacey, Sir Loin and Max Comic all looking for future YLC shots, plus Victorian Young Lion's such as Ryan Rollins have been waiting for Supanova Melbourne to get a crack at "The Scientist".
- Commonwealth Champion Tama Williams underhandedly defeated Max Comic at the January 21 Penrith, NSW event with the help of Multicultural Society partner The Samoan Warrior. Post bout Tama encountered a finger injury that required surgery, and hasn't appeared in AWF bouts since. Tama informed AWF officials he will be heading to the USA to compete in the Chikara King of Trios, with Percy T and Kabel, and in other independent USA events in April. On return to Australia Williams will be forced to defend the Commonwealth Championship or will be stripped of the title.
- AWF welcomes all its new students who have started this March at the AWF School of Pro-Wrestling. We hope you are having fun so far! Applications for the next intake, which is the Winter Semester starting 4 June are now available for the next course. All interested please send an email to info@awfwrestling.com.au for an application. Looking forward to seeing you all in the ring soon!
- Supanova Brisbane and Melbourne are upcoming next two weeks, and once again fun is assured! The Supanova juggernaut rolls into Brisbane on 2 & 3 April and Melbourne on 9 & 10 April with AWF taking centre stage at 12, 2 and 4pm daily. There will be Supa-Tournament bouts, with surprises galore guaranteed, and the winners to receive entry onto the 10 June Penrith Aussie Mania event. Be sure to come along and be part of these Supa-fun weekends. Match line ups will be on the events page of the AWF Website in the coming week.
- Former WWE Superstar "Ugene" will grace AWF rings on Fri 10 June at Panthers Penrith. Why is Ugene coming to AWF? Be on hand on 10 June to find out!
- Massive Q has been on the search to put together a new faction. So far things have been rough for him finding a partner, with Scotty Club declining and defeating the former Australasian Champion, and newcomer Jack Tasman turning on him after the team was victorious. Q will tour the nation as part of the Supanova events and says he will be scouting Queensland and Victoria for potential partners.
- Mad Tony Kebab's refereeing has seemingly become below borderline, as he now is making blatent interference on behalf of his cohorts at The Multicultural Society. After almost costing Iron Jay the AWF Championship to Mad Turk Hussain, and nearly instilling a riot in the process, Kebab has recently cost Selene and TNT big match decisions, and it appears that the Detonation Crew is hot to take down the "Mad Ref". A cocky Kebab has claimed that the DC can't touch him, and if they do there will be consequences!
- Korea's Masked Musa was defeated by TNT in a Loser Leaves Town bout and AWF has been informed Musa has now returned to Korea to train and wrestle more. AWF thanks Musa for his contributions, and hope to see him down the track once his year plus banishment is played out.

- AWF would like to welcome newcomer El Technico to the AWF Ranks, who made a successful debut on 19 March defeating Anubis. El Technico represents the popular Luchadore culture and his exciting style is a welcome addition to upcoming cards.

- Powerhouse Theo has gone into heavy training in the USA and is preparing to return to AWF on mid year events. Theo has been working out in Florida USA, training with the likes of The Dudley Boys and Jesse Neale of TNA. Theo tells AWF he has even been working on his Aussie side some, playing the character Matty Dundee! Detonation Crew partner TNT also recently revived his Aussie Ozbone character spending a month in Japan wrestling for Osaka Pro Wrestling over December and January. Maybe we will see the two team one day under their alter egos? Whatever the case AWF looks forward to seeing Powerhouse Theo return to AWF in the coming months and returning to dominance.
